THE CHALLENGE

Through our advocacy agent, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA), we’re investing in outreach to Canadian leaders and influencers. We’re advocating for the inclusion of antisemitism and Holocaust education in anti-racism initiatives in all schools, and providing Holocaust education through the Montreal Holocaust Museum. And our Community Security Network (CSN) is training community members in basic security skills so that volunteers can play a greater role in protecting Jewish lives and institutions. Your CJA23 gift will fund vital initiatives which demonstrate that our community is unified in its opposition to antisemitism.

THE CHALLENGE

To ensure a vibrant Jewish future in Montreal, Jewish day school, overnight summer camp, and experiential Israel trips like March of the Living and our Teen Israel Experience need to be accessible to all. That’s why we’re doubling down to make it easier for parents to afford these formative Jewish experiences. We’re also investing in leadership development on campus through Hillel, and outreach for young families through PJ Library. Your CJA23 gift will help to nurture the connections where commitment to community take root.

We remain committed to helping to integrate Jewish Ukrainians who fled war zones for the safety and security of Israel, and assisting those who are rebuilding their lives here in Montreal. Your CJA23 gift will also ensure that anywhere in the world where there is a vulnerable Jewish population, we’ll be there to provide critical assistance. In recognition of the Montreal Jewish community’s commitment to the State of Israel, Federation CJA continues to provide financial support, thought leadership, and a steadfast bond with the people and the country. Because our destiny is tied to Israel’s destiny.

THE CHALLENGE

Poverty is a reality for 20% of Montreal Jews. Rising rents and soaring food costs have compounded their daily struggle. Your CJA23 gift will help to meet vital needs: food relief, affordable housing, social services, and more. You’ll fund the Rental Assistance Program so families can stay where they are. You’ll help us invest more in after school programs for children from at-risk families. Fund job readiness and supported employment programs. And assist those living with mental illness.
