What We Do

No one should have to choose between paying rent and putting food on the table.

  • Kehilla Residential Programme (Kehilla) was established in 1982 as the UJA Federation’s community housing agency.

  • Kehilla’s mandate is to identify and champion affordable housing initiatives responsive to the needs of the Jewish community in the Greater Toronto Area.

  • We implement this through education, awareness, project sponsorship, development consultation, and research.

  • Kehilla operates a Rental Assistance Program (RAP) that provides up to $300 per month to assist households to better afford their housing.

  • Kehilla partners with developers to access city mandated affordable housing units and integrate low-rent and inclusive housing with RAP funding into rental and condominium developments.

  • We work to initiate policy changes with government to allow for more affordable housing.
