When former Israeli President Shimon Peres, z”l,  passed away on September 28th, Israel, the Jewish world, and the world-at-large lost a unique and important figure; one that will be greatly missed by all who yearn for peace.

UJA Federation of Greater Toronto and the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) will be holding a community memorial for Shimon Peres, z”l on Thursday, October 20th at 7:30 p.m. at Beth Emeth Bais Yehuda Synagogue, 100 Elder St, Toronto.

While we are still working on the details, we are reaching out to your organization to participate in the memorial.  Please email  Jennilee Head at  your organizations participation as soon as possible.

We urge you to promote the memorial evening to your friends and family as widely as possible to mark this historic passing.

Thank you in advance and we look forward to seeing you on October 20th.
