Canada hosting second lawmakers confab on anti-Semitism


WASHINGTON (JTA) — Canada is hosting the second gathering of the Interparliamentary Coalition for Combating Anti-Semitism.

The meeting will be held Sunday to Tuesday in Ottawa.

Hannah Rosenthal, the top U.S. official monitoring and combating anti-Semitism, will participate.

The first gathering of the group, last year in London, resulted in the "London Declaration," signed by lawmakers from around the world who pledged to "affirm democratic and human values, build societies based on respect and citizenship, and combat any manifestations of anti-Semitism and discrimination."
