The Varsity Jews is a Toronto-based a cappella choir that likes to make you smile! Our repertoire includes a wide variety of music, from traditional Hebrew folk to classic rock with an added Jewish flavour. We are bound by our love of music and our desire to incorporate Jewish music into community life.

Our mission is to provide our members with an avenue for cultural and artistic development, and a forum for social interaction within a Jewish environment, to provide audiences with entertainment and Jewish education, and to raise funds and support for various registered charitable organizations.
