Land Acknowledgement

Committed to fostering relationships

The land on which The Leo Baeck Day School stands is located on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 and is part of the Dish With One Spoon Treaty to share the land between the Anishnabeg and the Haudenosaunee nations. As members of the diverse Canadian Jewish community, we have deep connections to many lands. Our history as a people has taught us about what it means to be displaced and to feel a deep sense of longing and commitment to different lands we call home.

In accordance with our obligations sealed in the Two-Row Wampum, we commit to fostering relationships with each other, with the Indigenous peoples of this Land, and with the Earth itself based on the principles of peace (shalom-שלום), friendship (chaverut-חברות) and respect (kavod-כבוד). In the spirit of seeking out truth and working toward true reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, may the Hebrew words tzedek, tzedek, tirdof, “Justice, Justice, shall you pursue!” remind us to tirelessly pursue fairness, justice and equity for all.
