I’m Sarah Binney, and I am one of the kitchen coordinators for Ghetto Shul! I am a second year McGill student studying Linguistics and Hispanic studies. Every week, I make sure that amazing, home-cooked meals are ready in time for Shabbat. On Thursdays, I make sure an amazing group of Ghetto-shulers are chopping, sautéing, and roasting so that on Friday night we can have a sustainable and tasty dinner. I love schmoozing about all things culinary, linguistic, and Jewish. If you want to join the cooking party, have questions or ideas about food at Ghetto Shul, or want to talk to me about anything, email me at

Hi there! I’m Zoë Goldstein, and I am the Outreach Coordinator for Ghetto Shul. I’m in my 5th year (yes, it’s possible!), and I study Psychology and Russian Studies. As Outreach Coordinator, I do my best to spread the beauty of our community to those who have not yet experienced it. I greet newcomers (which happens to be one of my favourite things to do), and will never turn down a coffee date with those interested in Judaism and community. I love contemporary dance, talking about emotions, and no, I don’t curl my hair.
