This Week in Canadian Jewish Advocacy

This week, we invite you to remember our tragic past as a people, and to join us in building a brighter future for the Jewish people. 

Read on to learn more. 

The CIJA Team  

Join us on Tuesday, April 18, 2023, at 11 a.m. Eastern via livestream or in person at The National Holocaust Monument, to honour the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and the brave Survivors at a community-wide commemoration of Yom HaShoah.

Save my seat

On behalf of Canada’s Jewish community, we would like to thank all dignitaries and elected officials from across Canada, including the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, Premiers from coast to coast, and elected officials from all levels of government, who sent Passover greetings. 

Join us October 16-17 for the official launch of a sustained campaign to face, fight, and push back against the single-most important challenge we confront today: antisemitism.

This comprehensive conference includes two days of advocacy training for Jewish leaders, students, community advocates, advocacy professionals, and other faith and ethnic community leaders and partners on the critical issues facing the Jewish community.

You will learn the most effective strategies to engage the government and how to articulate the issues that matter most to our community. Participants will have opportunities for face-to-face meetings with key policy- and decision-makers on the Hill.

You will be part of the largest community gathering from coast to coast to coast standing strong, speaking with one voice! 

Count me in! 

This week, CIJA President and CEO Shimon Koffler Fogel spoke with the Toronto Star about the crucial role of the IHRA definition of Antisemitism in the fight against Jew-hatred.
