History

 

How did we get here? Well, in February 1971, Temple Har Zion was founded by a few families who felt that a Reform Temple could flourish and respond to the needs of the community northeast of Toronto.

In September of that year, at our first High Holy Days services, there were 72 member-families. The synagogue first held services in rented facilities and moved to our own property on Bayview Avenue, in Thornhill, in 1974. As our congregation grew, so did the need for a larger facility. The present structure was built in 1979 and this was followed by a renovation in the 1990s.

Today, we’re a congregation of 500+ families. Our sanctuary and various other elements of the building were updated in 2017 – including the dedication of the Debby Kaplan Sanctuary.
