On Thursday, November 30, 2023, the Jerusalem Foundation of Canada will host a Gala evening at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Toronto.  The evening will honor the memory of Julia Koschitzky z’l and the funds raised will support the Canada Community and Culture Fund.   The Canada Pathway adjacent to Canada House will be dedicated and named in honor of Julia and a Youth Leadership Prize will also be inaugurated in her memory.


In response to the pandemic crisis, the Jerusalem Foundation of Canada established the Canada Community and Culture Fund. This fund supports two critical areas in Jerusalem: ongoing needs for vulnerable populations of all ages, and the recovery of the cultural sector which was deeply impacted by COVID.  With the Pandemic behind us, new needs and challenges emerge. The Jerusalem Foundation, working in close cooperation with Mayor Moshe Lion, ensures that funds raised will be distributed to the most relevant and vital projects as the situation on the ground continues to change and evolve.

Support for the Canada Community and Culture Fund will be recognized along the Canada Pathway, located in the centre of Jerusalem and linking Canada House from Shivtei Yisrael Street to Ein Chet below and the Naggar Musrara School of Art and Society on the new Ronnen Harary Campus. The Canada Pathway is adjacent to Jerusalem City Hall and the Old City and the Jerusalem Inukshuk sculpture stands at the entrance to the Pathway.

The Jerusalem Foundation will also inaugurate the Julia Koschitzky Youth Leadership Prize – to be awarded to youth movements or groups in the city who have run a unique or innovative project showing commitment to their local community. The Prize fosters social leadership and encourages the next generation to take part in building communal strength in Jerusalem.

More details about the event and the evening program will be added to this story in the coming months.
