Celebrate Irwin Cotler’s Birthday by Making a Donation to IJV!

Irwin Cotler is turning 83 on May 8th. For every $36 you donate now to IJV’s No IHRA campaign, we’ll send Irwin a birthday card and thank you from IJV!

Who is Irwin Cotler?

  • According to the Jerusalem Post, he’s one of the “staunchest defenders of Israel” in the world.
  • He is one of the leading proponents of the “new antisemitism” concept, which seeks to label criticism of Israel as antisemitic. Justin Trudeau has acknowledged Cotler’s influence on the Canadian government’s position against the nonviolent BDS – Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions – movement for Palestinian rights.
  • Formerly Canada’s Minister of Justice, he’s currently serving as Canada’s Special Envoy on Combatting Antisemitism, and is our official delegate to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance;
  • As such, he plays a key role in pushing local governments, universities and other institutions to adopt the IHRA antisemitism definition.

This year, let’s give Cotler the gift of human rights for all and freedom of expression on Palestine! Donate $36 to IJV now, and we’ll send Cotler a birthday card with your name and a thank you for inspiring donations to IJV’s No IHRA campaign.
