Westmount, Quebec – 10 November 2023: During an early blast of the coming winter, soldiers and veterans of the RMR led students from Solomon Schechter Academy, JPPS, United Talmud Torah, Bialik High School, Herzliah High School and Hampstead School to the Cenotaph and Holocaust Memorial in Hampstead Park for the 2023 Hampstead Remembrance . This annual tradition sees hundreds of students attend the ceremony with some students actively participating by singing and reading prose.

Hampstead’s pro-Mayor Harvey Shaffer hosted the event, and Rabbi Moishe New of the Montreal Torah Center addressed the crowd about the importance of Remembrance.

On behalf of the government of Canada, Mount Royal MP Anthony Housefather laid the first wreath, followed by representatives of the various groups in attendance.

Lest We Forget.

I’m glad to see this. Because now Jews have to hide their religion . With gunshots being fired st schools, molotov cocktails thrown at Jewish institutions, harassment in the street, we must be careful. Even I
had to remove my mezuzah from my doorpost. My father fought Nazis in WW11 to stop this,in a way I am glad he is not here now to see whats going on .
So kudos to Hampstead for having their ceremony.
