Please join us on Zoom for JHSSA's AGM program, "Jews of Silence": 50-year anniversary of the Calgary campaign supporting freedom for Soviet Jews.
1971 was a very unusual year for Jewish Life in Calgary. Numerous regular events and fundraisers were cancelled in order to shift the focus to the campaign to free Soviet Jews. During the cold war period, Jews who expressed their desire to leave the Soviet Union were punished with job loss, imprisonment and other economic and social sanctions. Please join us 50 years later for a retrospective of our community’s engagement in this international social justice movement.
As always, the AGM will also include our financial report, board elections, and the presentation of certificates in recognition of those in our community who have celebrated their 80th birthday in the past year. Please contact the JHSSA office if you know of someone has become an octogenarian since our last AGM.
RSVP by October 18 for Zoom information.
