** The Narayever provides burial plots at Bathurst Lawn Cemetery for members who have been in good standing for at least five years.  The Board will sell a plot to new members at a cost that decreases over their first five years of membership. Members who resign and then rejoin can pay the full amount of membership dues since they resigned, and there will be no charge for a burial plot, or they can choose to be treated as a new member, subject to the burial plot fee schedule. If they rejoin more than five years after ceasing to be a member, they will be treated as a new member for purposes of burial.  Please contact the shul office for the specific associated costs for new and returning members.

No one will be turned away based on financial considerations. When financial hardships do not allow payment of the full fee, dues adjustments can be made in confidence by contacting the Membership Chair.

Rabbi Ed Elkin (416.487.4200 or rabbi@narayever.ca) or the Membership Chair can answer any further questions regarding membership. To join, please print the membership form (fillable form), fill it in and mail it to the office; or email it to us at info@narayever.ca; or call the office a 416.927.0546.

We look forward to welcoming you as a member of the First Narayever Congregation.
