One of the largest trampoline centres in the Montreal area is not allowing Jewish day camps to set up reservations this summer, citing “misbehavior in past years.”
Rabbi Levi Raskin, director of Camp Ohr Menachem for Chabad of Cote St Luc, has sent his younger campers to Acrosport Barani for the past few years, and instructed his secretary to call Barani and set up a reservation.
The girl who answered the phone immediately asked if the day camp was Jewish. When informed that it is, she told the secretary that “we are not taking Jewish camps this year.”
Shocked, the secretary hung up.
Rabbi Raskin then phoned Acrosport Barani and recorded the conversation, where he was informed that his camp would not be allowed to make a reservation at the trampoline centre because they are Jewish. When asked for the reason, the girl replied: “you people misbehaved in past years.”
Bill613.com called Acrosport Barani for comment and were put on hold. When the girl returned she responded that she only speaks French. After asking for her again in French, she placed us on hold once more and then gave us another number to call.
The number went to iSaute, Acrosport Barani’s competition in Laval.
