    “Education & Sharing Day” has been unheard of in Canada since 1987. Until this year, that is.

    With tireless effort and perseverance, Rabbi Sholom Ber Bakshi, Shliach to Woodbridge, Ontario, has succeeded in making it happen in Vaughan, Ontario. March 24, 2021 has been proudly proclaimed “Education & Sharing Day” by the city’s mayor, Hon. Maurizio Bevilacqua.

    Across the border in the USA, proclaiming Yud Alef Nissan as Education Day is an annual tradition. For more than 40 years, presidents, houses of congress, and governments have recognized the date corresponding to the Rebbe’s birthday on the Jewish calendar as Education and Sharing Day. In Canada, however, the last time this took place was in 1987 when the shluchim from around the country met Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.

    To mark the occasion, the city will be holding a virtual meeting beginning of next week with the Mayor & city council discussing the influence of the Rebbe & Chabad on the entire city and residents.

    The shluchim will be presenting the Mayor, City Council, dignitaries & leaders of the province – with the book “Toward a Meaningful Life,” which brings out the teaching of the Rebbe in a way that can be understood by anyone.

    “We’d like to thank the Rebbe for endless Brochos we received for this initiative and throughout our Shlichus”.

    In addition, we would like to thank the Shliach Rabbi Zalman Aharon Grossbaum, who supported us in this project and has always stood behind us since we began our shlichus to Woodbridge & Kleinburg Ontario in Kislev 5780,” said Rabbi Bakshi.

    “Thanks to the Rebbe’s brachos, we were successful in accomplishing this great mivtzah. We are sure it will give the Rebbe much nachas ruach.”

    Rabbi Bakshi also thanks the ChabadOne PR team for providing the resources and support to assist shluchim around the world fulfill this initiative.
