Last night we were thrilled to welcome a sold-out crowd over 1,000 to the 12th annual CJPAC Toronto ACTION Party.
It was wonderful to see so many friends together in one place, celebrating political engagement and support for Canada and Israel.
CJPAC’s mandate remains as relevant today as it did when we began our work over twelve years ago; we are a community-driven organization which provides a platform to understand and engage in our democracy.
Over the next few months we will be training community members to become top-notch volunteers in the Ontario provincial election and connecting them with the campaigns of their choice. Let us know if you’re interested in getting involved by emailing email@example.com.
We’re proud that the ACTION Party continues to be a success and we have so many people to thank, including our generous sponsors, supporters and our hard-working ACTION committee members. Extra thanks to our 2018 ACTION co-chairs: Omar Khan, Ilan Orzy, Sarina Rehal and Kortney Shapiro; we couldn’t have done it without you!
Thank you to all who support us by attending our ACTION Parties and thank you to those who support us by getting politically engaged.
Please be sure to visit our Facebook page in the coming days to see photos from the event.
Thank you to the over 30 elected officials and dignitaries who attended! If we inadvertently missed anyone, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org:
