This Week in Canadian Jewish Advocacy

On Monday, three accomplished Israeli journalists from across the political spectrum shared their diverse perspectives on the issues that will be top of mind for Israelis when they head to the ballot box in October.

In case you missed it, or want to share it with family and friends, you can watch a replay of The Exchange here.

CIJA is encouraged to see progress in several cases in Montreal and Toronto involving antisemitic crimes, including assault and acts of vandalism.

In Montreal, police have made an arrest in connection with an incident on May 5, where two young men assaulted a Jewish man on the street following a rally celebrating Israel’s independence. In Toronto, police arrested a man after an investigation into a hate-motivated graffiti near York University and another for allegedly vandalizing a Toronto art installation with antisemitic graffiti.

Hate and antisemitism pose dangers to all Canadians. We will continue to work with law enforcement to educate them about antisemitism so that they are better equipped to identify and investigate incidents like these.
