Women's Campaign Chair, 1981-1982

From a very young age I was a canvasser at Combined Jewish Appeal .

I came from a very philanthropic family so it was natural for me to want to be involved in the community and with Federation CJA.

As Chairperson of the Women’s Division, I looked forward to going to the campaign office every day . The camaraderie between all the women was amazing. We were a small group – we loved working together, and we were all dedicated to raising money for our community and for Israel.

A special moment for me was the campaign closing dinner. It was a culmination of a year filled with wonderful memories. For me it was a marvellous experience.

My wish is that the Montreal Jewish Community will continue for another 100 years.
