Showcase: Great Jewish Canadians

Welcome to CIJA Showcase, Great Jewish Canadians, where CIJA brings well-deserved attention to the individual contributions made by Jewish Canadians who work for the benefit of their communities and Canadian society. 

Whether it’s countering antisemitism and other forms of racism; fighting for social justice; bringing comfort and safe conditions to marginalized citizens, newcomers, refugees and others who need help; building bridges among Canada’s many ethno- and faith-communities; or reaching out to build ties with the people and land of Israel, CIJA Showcase celebrates fellow Jewish Canadians and their achievements that benefit all Canadians.
