Toronto—”Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC) mourns the tragic passing of Polish President Lech Kaczynski, Mrs. Maria Kaczynska and the other passengers who perished in this horrific accident,” stated CJC President Mark J. Freiman. “President Kaczynski played a major role in the growth and revitalization of modern Poland and its development as a valued democratic member of the European Union and the international community at large. We extend our deepest sympathies to the people of Poland on this terrible loss.”
Congress CEO Bernie M. Farber added, “Madame Kaczynska was recently in Toronto and at her behest she met with the leadership of the Jewish community. Both she and President Kaczynski were stalwarts in enhancing Polish-Jewish relations both in their homeland and around the world. Over many years, CJC has developed a warm relationship with the Polish Embassy in Ottawa. We grieve at this difficult time with Ambassador Kosiniak-Kamysz and the Polish-Canadian community. We will strive to honour the memory of Lech Kaczynski and Maria Kaczynska by working to bring our two communities even closer together.”
