Raising the Roof and Building for the Future

by Joel Brown, January 2, 2015

This is a really exciting time to be a Solelnik. We are working hard to build for the future of Solel. We’re getting closer to selecting our new Rabbi who will help us reinvigorate Solel for the next generation and beyond. What’s more, we’re making sure that our facility is safe, dry and sound by rebuilding our roof.

Solel has always been special. It’s more than just a place, it’s a community of Jews with diverse backgrounds who come together to celebrate life’s great joys and to comfort each other in times of sorrow. Solel is where we come to build meaningful relationships with one another.

Together we have achieved great things as leaders in the Reform Jewish community and in the interfaith community of Mississauga and the GTA. Solel is a force for tikkun olam in the community and for Solelniks it is our Jewish home.

For more than 40 years, we’ve built something amazing together. Now, during our transition, it’s time to rededicate ourselves to all of the things that have made Solel so dear to us all. We ask that you join us in helping to revitalize and reinvigorate Solel. As much as Solel is about people rather that a place, we still very much need our building and our staff to operate the programmes which allow us to come together as Solelniks.

We’re asking everyone who can to help us build for the future of Solel by making a contribution to our “Raise the Roof” campaign. Any amount is welcome and greatly appreciated. We encourage you to consider donating at one of these levels.

Sustainer $100
Steward $250
Patron $500
Guardian $1,000
Builder $2,500
Founder $5000 +


All donations are tax creditable. Every dollar you donate costs you as little as 60 cents after your tax credit. Donate before December 31 to have your tax credit apply to 2014!

Please contribute whatever you can to help Solel build for our future. Your generosity now will help to ensure that Solel continues to be strong as we complete our rabbinic transition and our building renovations. Help us “raise the roof” on the house in which we have built our Jewish home.
