In cooperation with the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg and other Jewish community organizations, it will introduce you to the local resources available to Jewish families, including schools, synagogues, youth programs, camps, kosher facilities etc., and provide you opportunities to participate in community activities and events, meet others and make new friends.
