Joint Statement from Federation CJA and CIJA

Community centres, schools, and houses of worship need to be protected from those that seek to leverage a foreign conflict to target the Jewish community with hate and intimidation. We are glad the court extended the injunction, continuing the safe buffer zone, which it established to protect our community and its institutions. It has become all too clear that demonstrations at these locations are about stoking fear in the hearts of Canadian Jews, and not about a war happening on the other side of the world.

While the right to protest is deeply rooted in our values as a society, this does not include the right to intimidate and threaten our community, and this is what this injunction is about.

We will continue to pursue every available avenue to ensure the safety and security of the Jewish community and our right to live freely as Jews. We are continuing to move the matter forward towards a permanent injunction as soon as possible.
