Israel, Canada and Me in the Age of Trump: panel discussion
Apr 02, 2017 at 04:18 PM

Has the United States abandoned the two-state solution to peace in the Middle East or is it still on the table in one form or another? Does the United States condemn Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem and the Occupied Territories or does it approve of them? In the Age of Trump these questions are not easy to answer, as one sifts through evasions, equivocations, half-truths and lies. How should we as Jewish Canadians feel about the ascendancy of Donald Trump? What are the strategies we should adopt in order to deal with the coming storm?

Four Jewish panelists will discuss these and other issues in an event, 'Israel, Canada and Me in the Age of Trump,' to be held at the Peretz Centre for Secular Jewish Culture (6184 Ash Street ) on Sunday, April 9 at 1:00 PM.

the Northern side of the commercial port in Larnaca.

between Cyprus and Crete . We are excited to combine both groups who have worked
so hard on this project and are so enthusiastic about setting out for Gaza . On
the way in today, we had the Cypriot authorities escorting us. Now, it’s time
for the world to escort us to Gaza .” Said Paul Larudee, one of the
