Dr. Victor Goldbloom Has Died


The team of the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism is deeply saddened by the news of Dr. Victor Goldbloom's death. The Centre lost a dear friend and adviser and a Board member.

Pioneer of interfaith dialogue, Dr.Goldbloom was deeply committed to Christian Jewish dialogue, to social issues and his understanding of minority communities was unparalleled.
We were amazingly blest to have Dr. Goldbloom as part of our Board of Directors and as part of our lives. We will deeply miss the presence of a truly unique and kind person.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to Dr. Goldbloom's family!

May the soul of our loved Victor rest in peace!
