On Thursday, March 23 at 12:00 p.m. ET, Unity Not Uniformity presents: Unpacking the Controversy.

Expert panelists will take us through the stories driving news in Israel, delving behind the headlines to analyze their impacts on the diaspora and what they mean for Jews across the world.

Join us for a special townhall webinar with Fleur Hassan-Nahoum, Adam Dodek, and Haviv Rettig Gur as they explain the major topics on everyone's minds from the controversial judicial reform proposal, to counter-terror raids, the new Iran-Saudi Arabia deal, and the debates they've caused within Israel and internationally.


Federation CJA’s 360 Podcast, with your host Yair Szlak, President and CEO of Federation CJA, is a monthly podcast that delves into the most pressing and newsworthy issues affecting the Jewish community today – everything from antisemitism to Israel’s 75 years of independence!

In this month’s episode, CIJA Quebec Vice President Eta Yudin spoke about what motivated her to become professionally involved in advocacy, the impact of CIJA’s work in protecting and preserving Jewish life in Canada, and the importance of advocating for Canada's Jewish community, individually and organizationally.
