CTIP expresses best wishes for Passover to Jewish Canadians

 

Wishing-You-Happy-Passover-Wishes-Picture

Canada Talks Israel Palestine is a secular organization. Our members include Jews, Christians, Muslims, other faiths and even non-believers.

We extend our Passover greetings to our Jewish Canadian members, to other Jews across Canada (hoping they will become CTIP members some day) and to Jews around the world.

We offer a special shout-out to Canadian Jews organizing “Liberation Seders” in various cities across Canada. Two wonderful Liberation Seders for 2017 are dedicated to a free Palestine and the liberation of all peoples – one in Toronto and one in Hamilton. Both Seders will have the reading of the Haggadah followed by a Middle Eastern dinner.

Happy Passover.
