Earlier this evening, the students in Grade 8 had the opportunity to celebrate Chanukah with Prime Minster Justin Trudeau and other political party leaders. The students gathered with Members of Parliament and community leaders to light the menorah and take part in an early Chanukah celebration. Although we did not sing the blessings (due to Chanukah officially starting in two weeks), the menorah was symbolically lit. The political leaders spoke out against antisemitic events that have taken place throughout various university campuses nationwide. Students were able to engage with government officials, enjoy sufganiyot, and commemorate Chanukah with their peers.
