Where does the time go? The end of 2018 is fast approaching, and there’s only about one week left to make donations eligible for this year’s tax deduction receipt.

Our heartfelt thanks to you all for your ongoing support and double thanks to those who have already made their annual contributions. To those who have not done so yet, please consider a donation to Canadian Friends of Peace Now before Dec. 31.

Your dollars help us support educational programs in Israel conducted by Peace Now/Shalom Achshav. For example: our latest initiative to promote peace and democracy engagement on university campuses through special scholarships for young leaders. Your funds also help us broaden the discussion in the Canadian Jewish community on peace issues. This past fall we brought Amir Tibon of Ha’aretz to speak to audiences in three cities. His words made a deep impression on those who heard him “live” or through our newsletter coverage or other media coverage.

Donating is easy. Just go online to http://www.peacenowcanada.org and click on the Donate Now button on the right. Or call our part-time administrator, Rachel Katz, at 416-487-0067 with your credit card information. Or mail a cheque to 119-660 Eglinton Ave. East, #517 Toronto, Ontario M4G 2K2.

We’ll also take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones the very best for 2019.The board and staff of Canadian Friends of Peace Now
