Federation CJA 360 - October 25, 2019

This week's 360 covers the implications of last week's federal election results for Jewish-Canadians, what you can expect at Montreal's upcoming annual Festival Sefarad, the first all-female spacewalk in history which included a Jewish Swedish-US national and more. Shabbat Shalom!

On October 27th at 5:00 p.m. EST, we ask that you join us as we Pause with Pittsburgh. Together, in solidarity, we will pledge to maintain our abiding sense of unity and responsibility for one another. Because we know that what happens to one of us, happens to all of us.


Shabbat Candlelight
