Please join us on Monday, December 11 at our Downtown Latke Lunch with special guest, Steven Shulman, President and CEO of Jewish Federations of Canada-UIA. Steven will be speaking on Jewish Canada's response to the ongoing conflict and how the emergency funds are being deployed. Thank you to BD&P for hosting this event beginning at 11:30am. Register here.

Despite Mayor Jyoti Gondek deciding not to attend the Community Menorah Lighting, we wish to thank all of our community and external supporters for making last night's Chanukah celebration hosted by Chabad Lubavitch of Alberta, bigger and better than ever. We were honoured to share remarks, and to be joined by delegates from all sides including federal MPs, provincial MLAs and a number of city councillors. With over 1,200 in attendance, we all truly showed that the light will always overcome the darkness.

Calgary Jewish Federation has just completed a second transfer of money from the Israel Emergency Fund for a total of over $1.5 million. Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, we have been able to provide assistance in evacuations from the north and south of Israel, support for frontline communities, funds for victims of terror, trauma relief and psychosocial care, emergency medical services, recruitment of local volunteers, and care for vulnerable populations including the elderly. Raising money for the Israel Emergency Fund is ongoing – make your donation here.
