Ottawa Jewish Telephone Directory 67th Edition

Na'amat Canada Ottawa released its 67th annual edition of the Ottawa Jewish Telephone Directory (OJTD) in June. Our city’s key fundraiser, the directory includes local residential listings, business advertisers and a handy reference guide — including a calendar of Jewish holidays and organizations, synagogues and schools in the community.


This convenient directory sells for only $27.00 per book (HST included). For businesses, the ads reach a large cross-section of Ottawa’s 14,000-strong Jewish community, are viewed year round and rates are modest — all for a great cause! Please contact  to buy a copy of the directory, make updates to your listing or to place an ad for the 2018 Directory… or call the Na'amat Ottawa office at 613 788-2913.

School Supplies for Kids

Many children in the Ottawa area, whose families have been affected by violence and have fled to domestic violence shelters, could be returning to school this fall with few or no resources to buy school supplies. Na'amat Canada has stepped up to fill this need with our School Supplies for Kids project. Danielle Schneiderman is  the program's chair for Ottawa. Funding has been secured and plans are underway to provide close to 200 children in eight Ottawa shelters a gift of new backpacks filled with the tools they need to enter school. A special thanks to Kayla who, for her Bat Mitzvah project, donated 24 backpacks filled with supplies!To volunteer to help with this project, please contact
