About the event

Dear all Jewish community members,

It has been two months since our first meeting on April 7, 2024, at Burquest, where we got together to discuss and align on a specific time-sensitive political issue, the Port Moody Council vote of interest to the Jewish Community.  

Many individuals expressed the value of a strategically aligned and organized approach to actions necessary within our cities that would impact the Jewish community and Jewish life.  Many also expressed interest in continued dialogue with additional periodic meetings.
