We are thrilled to announce the official launch of OTT@KBI today!  Built upon the close to 100-year history of Ottawa Talmud Torah, OTT@KBI will continue to offer the outstanding, child-centred learning the families have come to expect from the program along with access to all the amazing resources that Kehillat Beth Israel has to offer.

As part of our launch, we are excited that Corinne Baray has agreed to serve as OTT@KBI Director for the 2022-2023 school year.  Corinne brings many years of experience to the role, teaching at OTT as well as many other schools, and will utilize her many talents towards the further growth of the program.  We are also glad that Eliana Mandel-Carsen has agreed to stay on through the summer to assist with Corinne’s transition.  We are grateful for her years of dedicated service to the program and wish her all the best in Whistler.

We have also inaugurated today OTT@KBI’s new website, Facebook Page, and Logo.  Through those resources, you’ll be able to remain up to date regarding the school’s programming and learn more about what OTT@KBI has to offer.  You can find the OTT@KBI webpage at: and the Facebook Page at:

Finally, with the launch of the new program, registration is now open for the new school year.  You can register at:   Should you have any questions about the program, you can reach out to me, but even better, reach out to Corinne at

We are so pleased to be able to offer this outstanding program to Ottawa’s Jewish community and we know it will continue to go from strength to strength.
