In recent years we have seen the unfortunate growth of attacks on minority groups and those who are “the Other.” This highlights the need for us to stand together to protect and safeguard all peoples, regardless of religion, race, sexual orientation or other factors, which may make them targets of a hateful few.

This year’s program is a respectful remembrance of those who suffered on Kristallnacht and in the Shoah (Holocaust), and a reminder of how and why we, as a collective society, commemorate such tragic events. Remembrance is essential; however we also must act in tangible ways to protect all peoples in our diverse community. We are inviting political and law enforcement leaders as well as representatives from the diverse faith communities to join together at the commemoration to lead us in reading a Pledge of Mutual Respect and Support.

Please join us to remember the past and commit to take action for a better future where we will respect and protect our neighbours, not remain silent in the face of any injustice against any person or group and work towards building bridges leading to unity and shalom (peace) in our own community and beyond.
