    UPDATE: Resolved — Canada Reverses Ban on Imports of Esrogim and Lulavim

    Update:

    The issue has been resolved and thanks to the efforts of many askanim and community members, including and Rachel Bendayan, member of parliament the CFIA reversed its decision on importing Luluvim and esrogim.

    Original story:

    Frantic efforts are being made by Jewish communities across Canada after the country’s food inspection agency (CFIA) banned the commercial import of lulavim and esrogim into the country, leaving tens of thousands of Canadian Jews unsure of how to procure daled minim for Sukkos.

    Under the new rules, the CFIA would only allow people to go into the United States, procure daled minim, and then bring them into Canada for personal use – a method of getting around the ban that is virtually impossible for the vast majority of Jew living in the United States’ northern neighbor.

    Askanim are now working to resolve the issue, with maximal effort being expended to have the issue resolved as soon as possible so as to least affect Sukkos preparations.

    “The Advocacy Division of the JCC is currently addressing the issue of commercial imports of Arba Minim,” the Jewish Community Council of Montreal said in a short statement. “We will advise once this issue is resolved.”

      Together with all the other tyrannical mandates of the pathetic Canadian government

      It would be good if more people would have rejected this very dangerous government earlier but people have been sleeping and are still snoring loudly.

      It’s unfortunately easier to get your hands on an illegal weapon in Canada than it is to get a lulav or esrog 🤦🏻‍♂️

      Canada IS a good and great country , a Medina shel chested bh
      This was a legality’ , an agricultural legality,….NOT an antisemitic effort
      As soon as the right people and authorities were advised of this situation , it was resolved super quickly

    6. Wow

      Canada has been going downhill for a while now. In the past few months though they have been nosediving down.

      The entire thing was due to a bureaucratic mistake by an importer.
