DIGEST: A Potpourri of Our Partners’, Friends and Associates’ Activities
Update of Webinar: 104 Years since the Balfour Declaration
We are fortunate to be co-sponsored by 32 prominent Israel-defending NGOs. With united efforts by all, we look forward to a worldwide audience, including Jews and non-Jews, seeking truths, facts, and more.
We will be highlighting Israel’s Legal Rights as presented by world renowned legal experts, and expose/juxtapose the deniers, -- AntiZionists — who falsely demonize Israel for “Occupying” her own land. Denying the Jewish people’s 4,000 year old Indigeneity.
While we cannot change the world, we can bring awareness to the uninformed, and the misinformed.
Look for the Flyer coming to you next Monday - October 25th

EDUCATORS AGAINST ANTISEMITISM PARENTS AGAINST ANTISEMITISM MEMBERS OF THE TDSB
There is considerable alarm among Jewish teachers and parents at the growing AntiZionist education being imparted by Equity Studies advisor, Javier Davila, as well as by author Desmond Cole, who have been spewing venom throughout the Toronto school system. They are hard at work to disallow a Counterpoint to their pernicious poisonous indoctrination.
A victory of sorts has been achieved. See the following announcement:
The EFTO established a task force at the Annual Meeting to combat Antisemitism in Ontario. The objectives of this task force include, but are not limited to, examining ways to enhance the advocacy, well-being and support for Members, with a report to the May 2022 Representative Council.

A Message from RWCHR International Chair Irwin Cotler
The Malmö Conference on Holocaust Remembrance and Combatting Antisemitism-which brought together government leaders from over fifty countries and intergovernmental organizations-and commemorated the Stockholm Declaration on the Holocaust- was as inspiring as it was timely. In particular, the “Country Pledges” by participating countries are an Agenda for Global Action, just as Canada’s “Country Pledges” constitute a National Action Plan for Holocaust Remembrance and the combatting of hatred and antisemitism.
This is what Irwin Cotler had to say about the “Country Pledges":
“I am pleased that ….. Canada’s Country Pledges is to make the role of Special Envoy a permanent one-“
Best, Irwin Cotler, International Chair of the RWCHR
STAY TUNED FOR MORE NEXT TIME
