CIJA says
Join CIJA, Shaarei Shomayim, Holy Blossom and Beth Tzedec Congregations and Ve'Ahavta for an evening of awarness building, learning and conversation.

The program will feature a panel in open dialogue designed to build awareness and educate the public, and our community in particular, in the spirit of ‘Truth and Reconciliation’, of the history of oppression and suffering, and the ensuing challenges, of Canada's Indigenous people, and will also address the parallel experiences of the Jewish and Aboriginal peoples.

This panel discussion will feature the Honourable Carolyn Bennett, Canada’s Minister of Indigenous Affairs and Northern Development, Dr. Dawn Lavell-Harvard, Ph.D, President of the Native Women’s Association (NWAC), Dr. Seymour Epstein, Ph.D, Educational Consultant and Tamara Podemski, a multi-disciplinary artist, born to an Israeli father and Ojibway mother. CIJA GTA Co-Chair Berl Nadler will be the moderator.
