From the President and CEO of the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg: An Important Message re Bermax Incident

April 24, 2019

Dear Community Members,

Antisemitism is growing globally and here in Canada. This is why we were alarmed by the alleged incident at BerMax Caffé and were grateful for the diligent response of the Winnipeg Police Service and outpouring of support from the broader community.

We are shocked and deeply disturbed by today’s news. It is deplorable that anyone would make false allegations of antisemitism, especially claims of such a serious nature, for any kind of gain.

Filing false complaints of criminal acts of antisemitism are not only illegal, they undermine the important work necessary to counter antisemitism and hate in all forms. We reiterate our appreciation of the work of the Winnipeg Police Service and their continued support for the Jewish community.

Laurel Malkin
President
Elaine Goldstine
Chief Executive Officer
