On January 29 2018, the Center for Research-Action on Race Relations (CRARR) organized an Interfaith and Intergenerational commemoration of the First Anniversary of the Islamophobic killing at the Quebec City mosque, Concordia University, Montreal. CRARR’s representatives read Rabbi Marc Schneier’s statement. The Event was co-sponsored by Concordia Student Union (CSU) with the support from the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding.
CRARR’s representatives read Rabbi Marc Schneier’s following statement:
“As we mark the first anniversary of the Mosque massacre in Quebec City, I stand in solidarity with the Muslim people of Quebec and with the Canadian people. The attack held a year ago against the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City was a despicable act of terror which reminds us that Islamophobia is real. Muslims and Jews share a common faith and a common fate. Let’s be determined, more than ever, to stand up for each other and speak out against bigotry”.
