A screenshot from the federal debate on the night of Sept. 13, co-hosted by The CJN and CIJA.

On Sept. 13, The CJN and CIJA hosted an election debate on issues that matter to the Canadian Jewish community.

Our participants were Marco Mendicino, the Liberal minister of immigration; Michael Chong, the Conservative shadow critic for foreign affairs; and Hal Berman, a doctor and NDP candidate in Toronto.

The subjects ranged beyond Israel and combatting antisemitism. There are Jewish connections to climate change, Indigenous reconciliation and Canadian foreign policy beyond the Middle East.

Afterwards, we hosted a post-debate analysis breakdown featuring Rivka Campbell, Josh Lieblein and David Cooper.
