Muslims Mark Jewish Heritage Month

May was Jewish History Month in the Canadian province of Ontario, proclaimed by an act of the provincial government one year ago. The month is dedicated to celebrating the achievements and contributions of Jews, Jewish organizations and the Jewish community to life in Ontario.

The government held a significant reception at Queen’s Park, home of the Legislature, on May 28, to acknowledge the many facets of Jewish life in Ontario over the past 200 years.

To mark the Jewish Heritage Month, Muslim-Jewish Dialogue (MJD) – chaired by David Nitkin, president of EthicScan Canada, and Tariq Khan, editor of Weekly Press Pakistan – has organized a reception for non-Arab Ajmi Muslims at Baycrest, the Jewish community’s leading edge gerontology and geriatric facility in Toronto.

Greeting the visitors at the MJD reception was Mark Adler, local member of Parliament for the Government of Canada, and a significantly involved member of the Jewish community. He expressed sincere best wishes and appreciation for the guests who were present and offered full assistance to the group in maintaining and expanding the good relations between the two faith communities.
