Canada’s PM Signs ‘Scroll of Honor’ for the Rebbe

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau welcomed six Ottawa shluchim accompanied by Elisha Wiesel, son of Elie Wiesel, to sign and present a “Scroll of Honor” ahead of Gimmel Tammuz – 30 Years.


Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau welcomed six shluchim serving Ottawa, Canada’s capital city, who were accompanied by Elisha Wiesel, son of Elie Wiesel, to Parliament Hill. Trudeau signed and presented a “Scroll of Honour” marking the Rebbe’s 30th yahrtzeit, which will be marked this year on 3 Tammuz-July 9.

The scroll “recognizes the vast accomplishments of the Rebbe, of righteous memory, and the relevance of his message today,” and proclaims July 9 as a Day of Good Deeds throughout the Country of Canada.

Elisha Wiesel brilliantly spoke about the connection between his late father and the Rebbe and the determination they had to make the world a better place following the Holocaust. This message cannot be more relevant today post October 7th.

Rabbi Chaim Mendelsohn wrote, “We thank the right honourable Prime Minister and the honourable Leader of the Opposition for signing the Parliamentary Proclamation honouring the Lubavitcher Rebbe and his legacy.”
