Familiar Faces Variety Series

Jewish geography – we’ve all played it from time to time. The age-old question of ‘how do you know so-and-so from our community?’ is something we’ve both posed and been asked. There’s no mistaking it, our Jewish community is made up of familiar faces!

The Rady Jewish Community Centre and the Gwen Secter Creative Living Centre at Syd Glow Place are thrilled to present a brand-new free virtual variety series featuring various members of our Jewish community. Each week, we will feature a new showcase for you to enjoy from the comfort and safety of your home. We’ve got singers, dancers, and comedians who will wow you, leaving you in tears. We also have amazing interviews of personal journeys, historical recounts, and success stories.

The one common denominator between all our featured guests? They are all members of our local Jewish community.

They are all Familiar Faces.

Familiar Faces is presented through the incredible support of The Asper Foundation and the Babs Asper Centre for Cultural Arts. It because of their incredible commitment to the arts during these trying times that we are able to offer this series at no cost.

Happy watching!
