BeyachadBC is a partnership between local Jewish organizations, with involvement from community members who were once newcomers themselves.
Our goal is to empower members of the different Jewish newcomer groups in Metro Vancouver to become full and active participants in the greater community.
We engage newcomers by delivering social and cultural programs infused with their own unique cultural practices and traditions.
We are here to make sure you have access to the resources you need to settle into Canadian life. While some newcomers need traditional settlement assistance, others simply need a bit of help navigating life in their new home, adapting to Canadian life, and connecting to the local Jewish community. BeyachadBC provides programming in a variety of languages and we infuse our programs with cultural practices and traditions that feel comfortable and familiar.
Our diverse community welcomes the participation of all Jewish newcomers, including interfaith couples and families, and people of all abilities, backgrounds and sexual orientations. Within our warm and inviting surroundings, BeyachadBC encourages meaningful participation and creates a special sense of belonging.
