I am sure that you agree that hate and desecration of sacred places do not belong in our community and that people of goodwill must stand together to discourage such behavior whenever our fellow Victorians are targeted.
Sometime around Christmasfive gravesites in the 152 year old Jewish Cemetery (consecrated 1860) were defaced with hateful symbols and slogans. Let’s stand together against these cowardly and hateful acts and show our support for positive community relations.
Rabbi Harry Brechner will lead a brief vigil for respect and inclusivity in our community, inviting community leaders to raise their voices in support and bringing people together in positive action. If you can join us you are most welcome. Please re-circulate this message as widely as possible. Let’s have a great turnout and show how a healthy community reacts to hate crimes.
Victoria City Councillor and CRD Director
