Grassroots human rights advocacy and a lifeline for our community

Join Us for a Community Vigil in Honour of the Pittsburgh Shooting Victims

Dear Friends,

Please join B’nai Brith Canada, alongside UJA Federation, its advocacy agent CIJA, Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC), the Jewish National Fund (JNF) and the Toronto Board of Rabbis, for a community-wide vigil in Toronto to honour the victims of the horrendous Pittsburgh shooting tragedy.

When: Tonight, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m.

Where: Mel Lastman Square |5100 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON

Jewish communities across the world have hosted vigils in the wake of Saturday’s horrific attack, in a bid to honour the eight men and three women who were targeted in their house of worship for the simple act of being Jewish.

Tonight, our community in Toronto will do the same.

We hope you will be able to attend in a show of solidarity and remembrance, as our community continues to cope with this unspeakable act of antisemitic violence. We must always be united against such racist and antisemitic hatred – our community is stronger and more resilient when we stand together.

See you tonight.

    This senseless violence here in America has got to stop. I’m not sure how prevalent this sort of thing is in Canada but it has been taken to an entirely new level here. Just a week or so go with the shootings near Los Angeles we’ve been given another example of how out of control things have become. We’ve made it a very clear priority in my community to eradicate antisemitic hatred and it doesn’t have any place in my business either. Together we must continue to work toward this goal by standing together. It’s something I stress with my employees all of the time regardless of their faith or background. Thanks for all that you do!
