Chabad on Bayview
Chabad on Bayview is founded on the principle that, while people embrace many levels of observance in their personal lives, there should be a place for no labels, and all affiliations. A place where people can develop a sense of community and enhance their own spiritual experiences of Judaism.
Chabad on Bayview has successfully catered to thousands of families from all backgrounds, offering educational programming in an accepting and innovative setting where all feel welcome. The goal is to create a positive Jewish experience for everyone as they strengthen their ties to the Jewish community.
Chabad on Bayview is a place where everyone is welcome - regardless of affiliation or level of knowledge. Our sole purpose is to create a warm welcoming environment to explore and experience our heritage and Judaism's warm and relavant spirtual inspirations in a non-judgmental and inviting atmosphere.
Rabbi Levi & Rivky Gansburg founded Chabad on Bayview in the fall of 2007. Along with their three daughters Chaya, Rosa and Mimi they have transformed the Bayview corridor into an oasis of Jewish life.
Levi grew up in the suburbs of Toronto watching his parents inspire thousands in Jewish thought and practice in their capacity as emissaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
Rivky hails from Brooklyn, New York where her childhood years offered her the unique opportunity to be nurtured in the epicenter of the Chabad movmemnet's headquerters. Taking the inspiration to heart, she headed schools, programs and camps across the globe prior to marrying and settling with her new family in Toronto.
Chaya, Rosa and Mimi are proud ambassadors of love, kindness and joy in contributing to the growth of Chabad on Bayview.
The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory (1902-1994), the seventh leader in the Chabad-Lubavitch dynasty, is considered to have been the most phenomenal Jewish personality of modern times. To hundreds of thousands of followers and millions of sympathizers and admirers around the world, he was -- and still is, despite his passing -- "the Rebbe," undoubtedly, the one individual more than any other singularly responsible for stirring the conscience and spiritual awakening of world Jewry.
Chabad on Bayview is driven by the inspiration and teachings of the Rebbe.
