Blast 7:  May 3, 2017 - SPECIAL EVENT - The Balfour Declaration: Its Significance for Christians, Muslims and Jews on May 18th, 2017 in Toronto at the Isabel Badel Theatre

The Balfour Declaration of 1917 was the first step which led to the League of Nations' Mandate for Palestine, which provided the legal basis for the eventual creation of the State of Israel in 1948 (Canada was a member of the League of Nations).

The Mandate is still valid under international law (according to the United Nations article 80). We invite you to this remarkable event where you will hear about the ongoing significance of this document for Jews, Christians and Muslims in today's world.

Feel free to distribute this to all of your email contacts or share with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.

Sincerely,

Goldi Steiner and Irving Weisdorf

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
