Education and Sharing Day
April 12, 2022
A quality education is a significant foundation for the continuing success of our province, our country, and our society at large; and
By providing an excellent education for all, especially children, with which to gain knowledge through rigorous study, we can create hope for a brighter, kinder and more united, and prosperous future in the lives of many; and
The educational system must also focus on building character by emphasizing the cultivation of universal moral and ethical values that have been the bedrock of society from the dawn of civilization, including the values known as the Seven Noahide Laws; and
One of the leading global advocates for the advancement of education, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, stressed the importance of moral and ethical education as the bedrock of humanity and the hallmark of a healthy society, and strongly urged that education be reinforced by the inculcation of strong moral values, thus ushering in the Messianic era; and
In recognition of the Rebbe's outstanding and lasting contributions toward improvements in world education, morality, and acts of charity, he was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, and the United States Congress has established his birthdate as a national day to raise awareness and strengthen the education of our children; and
April 12, 2022, will mark 120 years since the Rebbe’s birth, and the date will be celebrated around the globe by adding in acts of Goodness and Kindness in tribute to the Rebbe’s vision, guidance and leadership.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:
That His Worship Mayor Rob Keffer and Members of Council proclaim April 12, 2022, as Education and Sharing Day in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.
