Anthony Housefather, a Jewish member of Canada's parliament, has been appointed as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's new adviser on the Jewish community and combating antisemitism. This comes as Canada has seen a spike in violent antisemitism, with synagogues and Jewish schools being targeted. Housefather's immediate goals include legislation making blocking entry to a Jewish institution a crime and seeking an all-of-government approach to addressing rising antisemitism. He will work in parallel with Canada's special envoy on Holocaust remembrance and combating antisemitism. The appointment has been welcomed by top Canadian Jewish and pro-Israel bodies, as well as the Israeli ambassador to Canada.
