For over 100 years, the Jewish Federation of Ottawa has been serving Ottawa’s growing Jewish community of more than 15,000. Its positioning within the nation’s capital affords the Federation the unique opportunity to advocate in respect of both domestic and international issues of interest to all Jewry. This history and work continues to frame the efforts of our Local Partner Council. The LPC in Ottawa is chaired by Jonathan Freedman. As Ottawa is home to the University of Ottawa and Carleton University, it provides a stimulating environment and can be a hotbed of controversy for advocacy issues generating meaningful dialogue among young adults.  Through Hillel, our campus professionals and students work to further the needs of the student community. The LPC also fosters programs that promote interfaith dialogue and inter-ethnic understanding.

For information on how to get involved in Ottawa advocacy activities, please contact Allyson Grant.
