The undersigned are concerned Jewish community members, and supporters of our community.


 With 4000 other grassroots individuals, we spoke out against the plan of the Social Planning Council to use the celebrity of BDS champion and anti-Semite Linda Sarsour to raise money through a panel discussion.


The Seven Oaks School Division canceled the venue booking on March 20th, respecting the community they serve.


 After that, the SPC defended using Sarsour as a ticket-selling attraction, on the premise she represents a legitimate view of Middle Eastern affairs, the Jewish people, and the State of Israel. The non profit ignored the divisive actions and language she engages in, including embracing a terrorist who murdered Jewish students, and Sarsour telling her followers not to humanize Israelis.


As of April 3rd, there has been no public statement from the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg refuting the Social Planning Council ideology. There is no known activity taken by the Federation in defence of our community and Israel.


Your mission statement reads: “Our Mission Acting as the representative body of the Winnipeg Jewish Community, building and sustaining a strong, secure and connected community rooted in Jewish values. Our Vision Building a vibrant, connected Winnipeg Jewish Community. “


The grassroots have contacted Premier Pallister, cabinet members, other officials, and funders of the non profit and demanded accountability.


 
The undersigned petitioners ask, what is the Jewish Federation doing to support our efforts and to protect the safety of our community?
