On Sunday, November 4, 2012, Gerry Weiner was awarded The Carmel Award of Merit. Gerry received this award in recognition of his long-time service to Canada and the province of Quebec, his deep sense of community, and his dedicated support of the University of Haifa, Israel.

Gerry has accomplished a great deal in his life. He grew up in Montreal and co-founded a neighbourhood pharmacy; he has dedicated more than half a century to the delivery of health care services. Over the years, Gerry has also been very involved in education and the quality of life of his neighbours.  He has been honoured for his many efforts in combating racism, anti-Semitism and his vigorous defense of Human Rights.
