This past year our B’nai Brith Montreal branch has been busy making a difference in the lives of the community. Our food baskets program successfully delivered food packages to over 1,800 needy families over the high holidays. Each package was delivered by hard-working volunteers dedicated to bringing a smile to people’s faces.
The anti-hate hotline is just one of the initiatives taken on by B’nai Brith to ensure the safety and security of Jewish Montreal. It’s a toll free call available 24/7 to allow members of the community to report anti-Semitic incidents. A new security protocol was also put in place to ensure a rapid response in the event of an emergency.
B’nai Brith House, located on Cote St. Luc Road in the heart of the Jewish community, has been busy with an exciting new slate of great programs and activities under the chairmanship of Gerry Weinstein, along with a strong core of volunteers who make things happen.
We can’t forget to mention that B’nai Brith in Montreal is run by a new cadre of Jewish leaders such as advocacy director, Anna Ahronheim, working along with B’nai Brith Canada president, Eric Bissell, past-president, Gerry Weinstein and member of the board of governors, Ted Greenfield.
