Eight Synagogues across Canada receive hate mail.


Eight Synagogues across Canada receive hate mail. (CP24).

TORONTO -- At least eight synagogues in four cities across Canada have received anti-Semitic letters calling for the death of Jews, B'nai Brith Canada said.

Four synagogues in Toronto, two in Montreal, one in Hamilton and one in Edmonton have reported being sent the hate mail, the Jewish advocacy group said Tuesday.

A photo on B'nai Brith Canada's website shows the letter containing the words "Jewry must perish," and a swastika scrawled onto a blood-soaked Star of David.

There were 1,728 anti-Semitic incidents reported throughout the country in 2016, according to B'nai Brith's statistics. That's a 26 per cent increase from 2015 and the highest number of incidents ever seen by the organization, which has been tracking anti-Semitism for 35 years.

B'nai Brith does not yet have anti-Semitism statistics for 2017. Hmmm......Imported 'Values?' Read the full story here.
