Montreal’s Jewish federation sent a delegation to its sister city of Beersheba following Tuesday’s double suicide bombing. Montreal has been twinned with Beersheba since the late 1980s under Project Renewal, and has committed much funding and manpower toward improving the city’s infrastructure and social programs. “In 2003 we earmarked $4 million for Beersheba, which included the purchase of emergency equipment. Unfortunately, this equipment is now being put to use,” said Bram Freedman, Federation CJA’s director of administration and strategic initiatives.
