At last year's event, participants were surprised by video greetings from three prominent community leaders who shared their thoughts on the importance of an engaged, inclusive and passionate citizenry.

  • Hon. Mitzie Hunter, Associate Minister of Finance and Regional Minister (Multiculturalism) for the Government of Ontario, shared greetings on behalf of Premier Kathleen Wynne. “J-Serve highlights the powerful impact that a community can have when it comes together to bring real, tangible change to people’s lives,” said Minister Hunter. “Not only will this day provide the opportunity for you to fulfil the Jewish values of tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (the responsibility to repair the world), it will allow you to bring comfort and hope to the people that you will impact today,” she continued. “You are the future leaders of Ontario and Canada. Even as young people, you can be leaders in your communities right now and that leadership starts today.”

  • Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua of the City of Vaughan said that J-Serve “provides inspiration to other young people,” and added, “At an early age, you are realizing that the benefits of your actions can be far reaching.”

  • Morris Zbar, President & CEO of UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, said that J-Serve “expresses the values of our community” and encouraged participants to continue to make sure that those who need help get help.
