December 30, 2022 | 6 Tevet 5783




I hope you had a wonderful Hanukkah and are ready to welcome 2023. It is a great time of year to take stock, and we want to thank you for supporting our work with over 30 partners here, in Israel and around the world in 2022. It's also a great time to renew your support so that you can receive a 2022 tax receipt. You can also call our office today before 3:00 p,m, at 604.257.5100.

Before we get to the highlights of the past year, we want to share one more item with you. During Hanukkah, our advocacy agent, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, and the Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee co-hosted their annual Dreidels and Drinks event that was attended by over 130 community leaders and elected officials, including Jagmeet Singh, leader of the New Democratic Party and MP for Burnaby South. You can see the photos here

From all of us at Jewish Federation, we wish you the very best in 2023.
