Most people have no idea that Jews are, by far, the most targeted group for hate crimes in Canada. Yet Jews are consistently left out of anti-racism programs. These are examples of culturally embedded antisemitism that even people who pride themselves on being anti-racist are blind to. For a brief history of antisemitism in Canada, visit this entry at the Canadian Encyclopedia published by Dr. Irving Abella in December 2012.
To report an incident to the Jewish Federation of Ottawa, please email David Sachs.
Students, please tell your teacher AND your parents right away.
Parents/Students should then email the Jewish Federation of Ottawa (email@example.com), and email or talk to the principal. The principal should be aware of all incidents, and Federation needs to track incidents.
If the response does not answer your concerns, parents should email the superintendent of their school. At the Ottawa Carleton District School Board, contact Superintendent of Equity, Mary Jane Farrish and, again, the Federation. If there is a need to elevate the report, please contact Director of Education, Camille Williams-Taylor and email the school trustees.
