On behalf of Calgary Jewish Federation, Adam Silver (CEO), Jared Shore (Co-President), and Lisa Libin (VP) were honoured to participate in the Emergency Summit on Antisemitism with our federal government and peer organizational leaders from across Canada. Their firsthand participation provided them with the opportunity to hear important testimony from diverse members of our Canadian Jewish community, including Calgary's own Chaim Katz. The time to act is now. We cannot and will not remain silent, and we have strong partners to join us in this fight against Jew-hatred. Learn more about CIJA' s Fight It Campaign.
