On Wednesday night, the JCC welcomed MP Dr. Leslyn Lewis and her husband Jan Balca to an event in its Decarie offices. Our Executive Director Rabbi Saul Emanuel introduced Dr. Lewis by noting that Dr. Lewis’s immigrant story particularly resonates with Montreal’s Jewish community. At the event, Dr. Lewis met with entrepreneurs, leaders, and community members from various Jewish communities on the island and shared her policy plans with the group. The crowd enthusiastically engaged in a robust and lengthy question and answer session to close off the evening. Thank you Dr. Lewis for your time!
The event is one of several meet-the-candidate evenings which the JCC traditionally holds as federal or party election season ramps up. If you would be interested in attending such an event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
