The Gordon Dankner Education Fund

The Shaar launched a new initiative in September 2017 for our bar/bat mitzvah students. Thanks to the Gordon Dankner Education Fund, each new bar/bat mitzvah student will receive her/his own personal, inscribed siddur (prayer book) to use for her/his bar/bat mitzvah preparation. The Dankner family is delighted to celebrate the legacy of "Mr. D" through the presentation of these siddurim (prayer books) and are honoured to be part of the continuing Jewish practice and life of the students he so loved. We hope bar/bat mitzvah students use these siddurim in conjunction with this audio file to practice the Shaar's beloved Torah Service tunes with Mr. D!
