June 19, 2020 — A group of 58 prominent Canadian Jews have signed a letter urging Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to speak out strongly against Israel’s stated intention to unilaterally annex parts of the West Bank. The signatories, who consider themselves supporters of Israel, include rabbis, academics, retired diplomats, authors and other respected members of the Jewish community. The letter is sponsored by three Canadian progressive Zionist organizations: the New Israel Fund of Canada, JSpaceCanada and Canadian Friends of Peace Now. The organizations share a commitment to seeking peace for Israelis and Palestinians via a negotiated two-state solution.
The letter with signatories follows in both English and French.
