Call for Photos
In past years on Yom Hashoah we have honoured the victims of the Holocaust by reading out the names of relatives from the London community who perished in the Shoah.  This year Federation is attempting to create a visual memory of those who perished.  The photo you submit may include individuals who survived but should include at least one person who perished in the Shoah.  The caption will not identify individuals but will all follow the format of: (Family surname), submitted by (community member name). We ask that you limit your submissions to one photo per each side of your family. All submissions must be sent to program@ljf.on.ca by March 19, 2018.  If you have such photos but need assistance in sending the image please also contact us.

Thank you for considering this request.  With your help we will create a powerful and meaningful tribute to the victims and survivors of the Shoah.

Upcoming Community Events and Programs
JEM Presents Jewish Culture, Traditions and Values: Are These Reflected in our Jewish Food? 
Monday, March 19, at 7:30 pm at the JCC.  Speaker: Susan Jackson
Food can be a metaphor for culture and connection.  How does the world of 2018 transmit Jewish values, traditions, and lifestyle to the next generation? In a somewhat irreverent and humorous tone, our speaker will talk about how we can connect millennials to the love of Judaism and Israel.  We will look at what meaningful Jewish life means to families and young adults in a world of choice, discuss how our values related to today's society, and learn how we can bring to the forefront the "pintela yid," the little piece of Jewishness that rests in our hearts.  Using stories and anecdotes, Susan will describe how we can create relevant Jewish traditions and memories for our children to cherish.  Susan Jackson  has worked in the Jewish community for 35 years, including her service as Executive Director of the Centre of Jewish Knowledge and Heritage.  For more about Susan Jackson, and for the entire JEM line up, clickhere.
JEM will return in the autumn of 2018 with another lineup of edifying, stimulating, and entertaining presentations.
