In 1980, a member of the board was invited to and did present a paper on “The Sociological Structure of The Bombay Jewish Community” at the First International Conference on The Jewish Family Heritage held in Jerusalem, Israel.
On February 19, 1994, some members of our community put on a very good performance at the Sephardic Music Festival at the York University Auditorium.
In 1998, Congregation BINA participated in the “Israel at 50” celebrations at the CNE that were organized under the auspices of UJA Federation and the Consulate General of Israel. Congregation BINA participated in food/cooking demonstrations and the Sephardic Fashion Shows that showcased the costumes and henna & wedding ceremonies of the Indian, Moroccan and Yemenite Jewish communities.
In 2006 and then in 2008, Congregation BINA participated in the Jewish Mosaic Festival held at the Bathurst Jewish Community Centre in Toronto. This festival highlighted the customs and traditions of various Jewish communities from around the world who have now settled in Toronto.
Over the years, there has been an increased exposure of our community through print/television media and presentations to various groups.
Our liaison with the wider Jewish Community resulted in us receiving requests for training young people in Bene Israel melodies both from within and outside our small community for Bar/Bat Mitzvah and weddings.
