Jennifer Maccarone, MNA | A perspective from Quebec City
Jennifer Maccarone is the Member of the National Assembly for Westmount—Saint-Louis, the Official Opposition Critic for Diversity and Inclusion, LGBTQ2, and Persons Living with a Disability or an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Ms. Maccarone is a Member of the Commission on Culture and Education and the Commission on Citizen Relations.
A single mother to Sam, 19, and Bianca, 17, who are both on the autism spectrum, Ms. Maccarone’s commitment to improving services for and growing awareness of those affected by autism comes from her first-hand experience.
Ms. Maccarone served as President of the Québec English School Boards Association (QESBA), where she was the voice of the Anglophone community’s public education institutions. Prior to becoming QESBA President, she was President of the Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board (SWLSB), as well as President and member of the SWSLSB Parents’ Committee from 2009 to 2014.
At Temple, we have a long tradition of honouring the memories of our loved ones on Yom Kippur with the printed Roll of Remembrance. This year, we are continuing this tradition in a new way, by creating a video which will be incorporated into the Yizkor service online. As with our print Roll of Remembrance, you may submit names that will appear as text in the video. This will be in keeping with the solemnity of the day. We are providing an additional opportunity for remembrance to those who have lost loved ones in the last year. We invite you to submit a photo of your loved one, along with their name, the years of their birth & death, and one line, up to 10 words, describing who they were. As in the past, we ask for a donation of $18 for each name that you share.
If you have names/photos to submit for this year’s Yizkor Video, please click on the blue button below. Names submitted after August 21st may not be included in the video.
