What starts with Jews

never ends with Jews.

Jewish Canadians are facing a dangerous rise in antisemitism across the country and around the world. The Jewish community is not alone. Recently, there has been a disturbing increase in all types of polarizing and hateful discourse across the planet often creating a rise of hateful incidents.

The rise in antisemitism has been felt in all spheres of society, and lawyers have been increasingly solicited to intervene or to offer advice on these sensitive matters.

Register now and ensure you have the tools to address rising antisemitsm.
