In Honour of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, CIJA, together with the Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre and UJA Federation, presented a lecture with Deborah Lipstadt – Antisemitism: Here and Now.
Lipstadt delivered an important and deeply compelling message about contemporary antisemitism, and we encouraged all those in attendance to translate her words into action by participating in our campaign for a national strategy for combat online hate.
If you missed this event, you can watch Lipstadt’s interview on TVO:
In attendance were numerous elected officials including Mayor John Tory, the Hon. Rod Phillips, Minister for the Environment and MPP’s Roman Baber, Aris Babikian, Jessica Bell, Gila Martow, Billy Pang, and Faisal Hassan. MP Deb Shulte was also in attendance.
