Toronto Jewish Quilting Project

The Toronto Jewish Quilting Project uses communal quilt-making as a way of building community. For almost twenty years, the primary focus of this group is to make quilts and provide them as gifts for those touched by cancer.  To date, the project has brought comfort to over 500 recipients. Each one of the Angel Quilts is an expression of the creativity and compassion of these dedicated quilters. If someone dear to you has been touched by cancer, please contact us.

In addition, from time to time, other quilting projects are initiated. For example during the pandemic, the Toronto Jewish Quilting Project created kits to make potholders which were distributed to over 1000 volunteers. These quilted potholders were then collected and included in the 2022 Passover Food Drive food boxes which were distributed to the neediest members of the Jewish Community.

New members are always welcome to join this group. No experience necessary. The program takes place on Wednesdays 1:30pm to 3:30pm at Council House, 890 Sheppard Ave. W.. For more information please call (416) 633-5100 or

Chairs: Eva Karpati, Marcia Pascoe

Where do I begin to thank you ?

The angel quilt had me crying like a baby, and I am so grateful to you and to L’Chaim and to Susan and to Eileen at Mitzvah knitters, for being there and offering the warmth of a safety net to me at my hour of need. I am having surgery on Thursday to remove my tumour and cant tell you how much this welcome to L’Chaim has moved me.

I will use the quilt for a support on my journey and even the quilted bag for my belongings in hospital so your support will go a long way for me.

May you each be blessed
Gratefully and sincerely,

Received from a grateful quilt recipient (May 2022)
