Since October 7, 2023, the Israeli coastal city of Ashkelon has been hit by hundreds of rockets, striking a hospital and other infrastructure. Schools are closed and classes are offered virtually.
To provide computers to children who need them, Federation CJA has created the IEF – Ashkelon Fund. As the sister city of Ashkelon, the City of Côte Saint-Luc encourages the public to donate to this fund.
The City of Côte Saint-Luc and the City of Ashkelon have been twin cities since 1975 when Mayor Samuel Moskovitch travelled to Ashkelon for a twinning ceremony.
