"Inspiring and empowering Canadians to raise their voices for freedom, democracy and humanity"
Resource & Leadership Training Centre
FSWC is proud to announce the official opening of the Resource and Leadership Training
This newly renovated 2000 square foot facility is quickly becoming the
address for tolerance education in the city. The Gottdenker Family Reception Area
sets an impressive tone for the work that will be done within and is a comfortable
place for participants to debrief after a class.
Educators and Law Enforcement Professionals have been eagerly visiting the centre
to participate in workshops and training sessions designed by Friends to ensure
tolerance in our diverse city. In the Tom and Anna Koffler Tolerance Training
Centre, participants have the opportunity to learn about the climate
of antisemitism and intolerance today, and develop an understanding for the work
that we do.
In The Brown-Nusbaum Family Exhibition Centre, visitors are faced with the frightening reality of
the world envisioned by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Using multi-media,
including two video screens, and professionally designed panels, the exhibit is
both informative and engaging. The exhibit is complemented by a feature of books
from the Harry and Barb Silverberg Reference Collection,
which continues to grow with the aim to become the library for information
on antisemitism, human rights and tolerance. Click here to see the Harry and Barb Silverberg Reference Collection Catalogue.
The Resource and Leadership Training Centre is meeting our mandate by bringing together
inspired and influential professionals to learn from the lessons of the Holocaust
and create strategies to ensure tolerance in our diverse city.
To visit the centre, use our library, attend a documentary screening or view our
current exhibit, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (416) 864-9735
