Nettie Weinstein

Women's Campaign Chair, 1973-1974

I was Chair of Women's Federation in 1973, the year of the Yom Kippur War. It was a particularly difficult, challenging and stressful period, given the urgent and pressing need for additional funds to support Israel and the Israeli infrastructure. However, it was especially heartening and so rewarding to see the Montreal Jewish community, and in particular, the women, meet this challenge and, in fact, exceed expectations.

A special bonus and highlight of my time as Chair was the opportunity this position afforded me to meet and develop lifelong friendships with amazing women with whom I still feel very close.
