\ Feature Israel Trade Fair At Local Celebration On May 5 


The 17th Anniversary of Israel’s 
Independence will be marked by 
the Jewish community on Wednes- 
day evening, May 5 in a spirit of 
thanksgiving and celebration be- 
ginning with a short Service of 
Commemoration and followed by 
an enlarged and highly-appealing 
Israel Trade Fair. There will be 
music, folk dancing, a fashion 
I show and refreshments to please 
1 , the eye and stimulate the senses. 

I The Service of Commemoration 
; will take place at Congregation 
Beth Shalom beginning promptly 
at 8:15 p.m. The Israel Trade Fair 
will be set up in the Main Audi- 
| torium where His Excellency the 
Ambassador of Israel and Mrs. 
Gershon Avner, the distinguished 
patrons of the evening will receive 
I the guests. 

' Mervin Mirsky, president of the 
Ottawa Vaad Ha’Ir and David 
i Avner Zelikovitz, chairman of the United 
I Zionist Council, joint sponsors of 


the anniversary celebration expect 
that this will be one of the finest 
evenings of its kind in years. 
There is no admission fee and 
everyone in the community is 
invited to attend. They will all be 
there — parents, teenagers, young 
adults. 

A special committee of the pre- 
sidents and key members of the 
women’s Zionist groups headed by 
Mrs. Moe Slack has been at work 
for weeks in preparation for the 
Trade Fair. Israel’s goods and 
products are finding increased 
acceptance on the Canadian con- 
sumer market and many of these 
new items will be shown for the 
first time in Ottawa. 

Those who will participate in 
the Service of Commemoration 
are His Excellency the Ambas- 
sador, Rabbis Simon L. Eckstein, 
J. Benjamin Friedberg and Abra- 
ham Rubin, Mervin Mirsky, Cantor 
Hyman Gertler and Rev. Joseph 


Rabin and the Beth Shalom 
Choir. The choir will have organ 
accompaniment. The colours will 
be presented by the Cub and 
Brownie groups of the Jewish 
Community Centre. 

People planning to attend the 
celebration are urged to arrive in 
time for the service so that the 
religious significance of the observ- 
ance can be marked with dignity 
and reverence. Heads of all 
organizations in the community 
are co-operating by urging their 
members to participate. 

The booths will display wines, 
jewellery, candy, chocolates, canned 
fruits and juices, groceries, oran- 
ges, arts and crafts and WIZO 
products. Many of these items can 
be purchased. The Israel Govern- 
ment Tourist Office, Zim Shipping 
Lines and Air France will also be 
represented by agents from their 
Canadian head offices. 

The Boutique Shop will be a 


particularly attractive plus feature 
this year. A number of young 
women from Ottawa will model the 
appealing items which have been 
especially obtained for the Fashion 
Show. Objets d’art, stamps, coins 
and medallions will also be shown. 
The Petit Mus6e of Montreal is 
bringing in a beautiful exhibit of 
rare old ceremonial objects. 

Organizations who will man the 
booths are Ottawa Council of 
Hadassah, Mizrachi Women’s 
Organization, Pioneer Women’s 
Organization and Ottawa Women’s 
ORT. The combined strength and 
co-operation of these groups is 
certain to assure the success of 
this venture. 

The program has been arranged 
by the Ottawa Vaad Ha’Ir and the 
United Zionist Council in co- 
operation with the Israeli Trade 
Commissioner in Canada, the Syna- 
gogues of Ottawa and the Jewish 
Community Centre.

Jackie Mason Headlines Program At 
U.J.A. Stag Dinner On Monday Night

The Ottawa Jewish Community launches its 1965 United 
Jewish Appeal on Monday evening. May 3 with a double-barrelled 
attraction which is certain to sei it on the road to success. The 
Stag Dinner for men traditionally opens the annual campaign 
for refugee settlement in Israel, for relief and rehabilitation over- 
seas and for Jewish educational and recreational services in Ottawa. 

Jackie Mason, one of the most popular comedians in America 
today will entertain. Ken Soble of Hamilton, national chairman 
of the United Israel Appeal and a leading T.V. executive and 
industrialist will be the guest speaker. The program will be fast- 
paced, streamlined and thoroughly enjoyable. 

The dinner will be held in the 
Main Auditorium of the Jewish 
Community Centre. It is scheduled 
to begin at 7:00 o’clock, preceded 
by cocktails from 6:15 p.m. Admis- 
sion is free and every male contri- 
butor in the community is wel- 
come to attend. 

The Campaign Committee wishes 
to point out, however, that advance 
reservations are essential. All you 
need to do is phone 232-7306 or 
232-7307 to tell the switchboard 
operator that you will be coming. 

The caterer must be given a count, 
otherwise difficulties arise. 

The response to the invitations 
which went out earlier this week 
has been exceedingly good, accord- 
ing to general chairman Arnold 
Lithwick and his executive com- 
mittee. These dinners attract large 
numbers each year because the 
atmosphere is pleasant and the 
fund-raising is conducted with 
dignity and despatch. The boys 
know why they are there and every 
contribution is accepted graciously. 

No one is pressured and no one 
is embarrassed. 


These dinners save a great deal 
of legwork and help speed up the 
campaign. There are over 1,500 
cards to cover and it must all be 
done before the warm weather 
sets in. A commitment at the 
dinner on May 3 frees the volun- 
teer canvassers for other calls. 
The donor also benefits because 
the call at his office or place of 
business is eliminated. 

Since time is a major factor in 
today’s hectic business and pro- 
fessional world, the Stag Dinner 
provides an ideal opportunity to 
discharge one’s communal obli- 
gations. Everyone gives to the 
U.J.A. anyway. Add a few drinks, 


Kenneth Soble 

a good dinner and Jackie Mason’s 
hilarious brand of entertainment 
and it becomes a first-rate evening 
no one should miss. 

Guest speaker Kenneth Soble 
has been a dynamic force in his 
own Jewish community’s develop- 
ment for many years. He was 
largely responsible for the con- 
struction of the Hamilton Jewish 
Community Centre and has held 
most of the top-level posts avail- 
able in that city. As national 
chairman of the United Israel 
Appeal, he is emerging as one of 
the most prominent figures on the 
Canadian Zionist scene today. 

Mr. Soble is president of 
CHCH-TV, Radio Stations CHML 
and CHML-FM, Hamilton Forum 


Limited, Hamilton Communal Pro- 
jects and Hamilton Red Wing 
Hockey Club. He has the distinc- 
tion of being chairman of the 
Ontario Housing Corporation and 
of the Urban Renewal Committee 
of the City of Hamilton. 

A member of the Advisory 
Board of the Royal Trust Com- 
pany, he is also a governor of Beth 
Jacob Synagogue, McMaster Uni- 
versity and the Tiger-Cat Football 
Team. Mr. Soble’s wide range of 




Jackie Mason 

interests include the National 
Executive of the Zionist Organi- 
zation of Canada, B’nai B’rith, 
Masonic Order and directorships 
of the Chedoke General Hospital, 
Canadian Council of Christian and 
Jews and the Canadian Cancer 
Society. He was the founding pre- 
sident of the Radio and Television 
Executives Club. 

Jackie Mason is considered one 
of the funniest men in America. 
His monologs are artistically 
fashioned, and they flow effort- 
lessly from one punch line to the 
next. His situations are universal: 
they could happen to anyone. He 
touches lightly and hilariously on 
every conceivable subject. 


Jackie’s material, among the*- 
freshest and most original in show 
business, is delivered in an accent 
midway between that of a Bronx 
taxi driver and lower East Side 
delicatessen proprietor. His deli- 
very is rapid-fire and he builds his 
monologs skillfully and effort- 
lessly. 

His story is unusual, even for 
show business. Jackie comes from 
a family of ordained Rabbis (his 
father and three brothers are all 
Rabbis) and he himself held pul- 
pits in North Carolina and Penn- 
sylvania before entering show busi- 
ness. His early career was marked 
by many ups and downs before he 
hit the big time in 1959. 

These days, Jackie is an assured 
veteran with years of development 
in all kinds of situations behind 
him. His material is his own and 
his delivery is as personal as his 
fingerprints. 

Jackie has guested on such lead- 
ing television shows as Steve 
Allen’s, Johnny Carson’s, Jack 
Paar’s, Garry Moore’s, Perry Co- 
mo’s and Ed Sullivan’s. He has 
played the top clubs in the country, 
has appeared in a motion picture 
and has two records to his credit. 


The United Jewish Appeal will 
seek to raise $395,000. during the 
next few weeks to meet the chal- 
lenge posed by overseas, national 
and local needs. The objective is 
10% higher than the amount 
raised last year and represents the 
bare minimum required by the 
U.J.A.’s beneficiaries in the next 
fiscal year. 


Mrs. Gershon Avner 

Will Appear On 
CJOH Tuesday 
Morning, May 4 

On the occasion of the Ottawa 
observance of the 17th Anniver- 
sary of Israel’s Independence, Mrs. 
Gershon Avner, wife of the Am- 
bassador of Israel to Canada will 
be interviewed on CJOH Televi- 
sion on Tuesday morning, May 4. 

Mrs. Avner will appear on 
“Coffee Club” which is shown from 
10:00 to 10:30 a.m. She will be 
on within minutes of the begin- 
ning of the program. 


Establish David Petegorsky Award 


The New York Metropolitan 
Council of the American Jewish 
Congress has established an annual 
series of awards in memory of Dr. 
David W. Petegorsky, former exec- 
utive director of Congress, for the 
unique contributions he made to 
the development of the American 
Jewish community, Congress ide- 
ology and Congress program. 

The David W. Petegorsky Awards 
for Civic Achievement as they will 
be known, are presented each year 


to three persons in New York who 
have made a special contribution 
to the vigour and health of the 
city. 

The first recipients at a dinner 
held recently were Frederick 
Douglas O’Neal, for helping to 
achieve equal rights in the Ameri- 
can theatre; Howard M. Squadron, 
for his leadership of the Metro- 
politan Council; and R. Peter 
Straus, for helping to achieve 
legislative reapportionment.

Canadian Jewish Congress Plenary 
Session in Montreal May 20 - 24 


The Jewish Community of Ot- 
tawa has been invited to partici- 
pate in the 14th Plenary Session 
of the Canadian Jewish Congress 
which is to take place at the Queen 
Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal. 

Delegates from communities 
throughout the country will gather 
at this convention to deal with 
many issues affecting Jewish life 
in Canada and abroad. Plans re- 
leased by convention headquarters 
indicate that this will be one of 
the most meaningful conferences 
in years, with plenty of opportunity 
for delegate participation. 

All phases of Congress work will 
be reviewed including religious 
welfare, youth, Jewish education, 
adult education, community serv- 
ices, leadership training, commu- 
nity relations, foreign affairs, fund- 
raising and research and archives. 

One session will be devoted to 
“The Canadian Jewish Community 
as Part of World Jewry” and will 
deal with Jews in the U.S.S.R., 
Israel, World Jewish Congress, 
Conference of Jewish Organiza- 
tions, the Ecumenical Council and 
Canadian Jewry’s relations to other 
Jewish communities. 

The Oneg Shabbat is scheduled 
to scrutinize the “Contemporary 
Aspects of the Spiritual Life and 
Cultural Life of the Jewish Com- 
munities of Canada". This broad 
subject will be divided into such 


headings as Ethnic Concept of the 
Community; The Jewish Commu- 
nity as a Faith Community; Assi- 
milation; Jewish Intellectuals; The 
Strengths and Weaknesses of our 
Jewish Educational System. 

For the first time in Congress 
convention history, special 
rangements have been made to 
hold Sabbath Services at the hotel. 
Excellent meal and hospitality ar- 
rangements have also been made. 
All indications point to the 14th 
Plenary Session as setting an all- 
time high attendance record. 

A roster of distinguished and 
informed speakers will address 
the various gatherings and there 
will be an opportunity to mingle 
and exchange views with leaders 
of communities across Canada. 

In order to make the Ottawa 
contingent as representative as 
possible, Mervin Mirsky, president 
of the Ottawa Vaad Ha’Ir has in- 
vited the heads of all organizations 
to name delegates in addition to 
those who will be appointed by the 
Vaad. The information is required 
this weekend in order that it can

AN OPEN LETTER BY THE GENERAL CHAIRMAN OF THE UNITED JEWISH APPEAL 


Dear Friends: 

This is the Bar Mitzvah year of the United Jewish 
Appeal in Ottawa. Our offspring has done well. We have 
nurtured it, supported it and watched it grow. It has become 
the instrument through which we discharge our collective 
obligations as a community. 

Our U.J.A. has helped to save and rebuild shattered 
lives. Jt has fed tens of thousands on their way to a haven 
in Israel. It has made Ottawa a better place in which 
to live and raise our children. 

Our U.J.A. has done all these things and more. Each 
spring, the call has gone out. And each spring, the response 
has been swift and usually generous. To a greater or 
lesser degree, we have shared our blessings. God has been 
good to us and we have tried to be our brothers' keepers. 

the sad Ut trmhV; J ;t;, h t a her a e IS b had i,S P K° blemS : There is 0nly 50 much in the pot and 

tne sad truth is that there has never been quite enough to go around. 1964 is a case in 

point. Pledges exceeded *360,000., but actual requirements were at least $40,000. more. 

I*r»,.r aCed Wi : h th ‘ S dile , mm ‘V ,he Allocations Committee had little choice in the matter 
Israel requests were reduced — the Talmud Torah's allocation was cut — the J D C the 

?e in’debi IndVele S amp a " had t0 r get al °" 8 With less ' The result: our beneficiaries 

are m debt and there is only one source of relief. 

All kinds of suggestions have been made. Some people advocate splitting the campaign 
into separate local and overseas appeals. Others say we are sending too much overseas and 

!h°ere ke ar P e In . g h at home ' Another 8 rou P takes exactly the opposite position. And finally 

there are those who say you must cut your cloth to fit your suit. y 

existeH Ve t r hJ 0 b al T ’ " Cy ' S th . r . ou . 8h a . P eriod of belt-tightening right now. If any frills 

can von S oh T? Tx ? eliminated. It is easy to cut, but at what price? How much 
can you lop oil a Talmud Torah budget witnout impairing standards and services? Can you 
urn a deaf ear to the urgent cables and letters which keep pouring in from Jerusalem? How 
long can you go on incurring deficits without a day of reckoning? 

AnnJ| he w» re ‘a e ™?™" 8 ,S uestions t which face us on the eve of the 1965 United Jewish 
1 W n d ?. 395 ’ 0 . 00 ' thls y ear for current operations. If we reach that figure, we can 

ho'd the line. But if we do not, we are in trouble. The alternative is either to go back to 
the days of multiple campaigns or cut back on services. Neither approach makes much 
sense m these days of expanding economies and improved standards of living. 

The only problem we have is money. We are not being asked to shoulder a gun or stand 
guard on a border settlement. Thank God, we live in a free country where life is good and 
are 0 om n goals are eVeryWhere - There is little we cannot do 50 l°»g as unity and purpose 

Willing hands are ready to do the work. Our job is to help provide the tools. The 
members of my Executive Committee join me in expressing the hope that 1965 will be a 
banner year for the United Jewish Appeal because you and hundreds like you felt strongly 
enough to give a little more to preserve our Jewish way of life. 

Sincerely yours, 

ARNOLD LITHWICK.

Passover Observed April 17-24 

FIRST SEDER, FRIDAY EVENING, APRIL 16

from the yoke of Egyptian bondage 3,500 years ago will be 
ushered in on Friday evening, April 16, and will be observed 
for a period of eight days until sundown, Saturday, April 24. 

Passover has become a symbol of humanity’s first festival 
of freedom. To our people, however, it is more than a lesson. 
Rich in symbolism, it provides a unique method of identifica- 
tion with the faith and eternity of the Jewish people. It is 
the holiday that gives stress to our role as guardians of our 
young for they have a special part in its celebration. It is the 
holiday that attempts, in a most picturesque way, to convey 
to its celebrants the joy, beauty and feeling of our heritage of 
which it is part. 

Sale of Chametz — Until 10:15 a.m., Friday, April 16. 

B’dikat Chametz — (Search for Chametz) — Thursday 
evening, April 16.

Mrs. Moe Slack, 1st vice-president 
elect of the Ottawa Council of Hadas- 
sah has accepted the chairmanship of 
the Israel Trade Fair which is to be 
held as part of the community-wide 
celebrations marking the 17th Anni- 
versary of Israel's Independence on 
Wednesday evening. May 5. Mrs. 
Slack has enlisted the active partici- 
pation and support of Hadassah, 
Mizrachi Women, Pioneer Women 
and ORT who will set up and man 
the booths and fashion show which 
will be the highlights of the Trade 
Fair at the Jewish Community Centre. 


Soft Drinks

Passover Milk 

Borden’s Dairy will produce 
homogenized Passover milk again 
under the supervision of the Vaad 
Hakashruth. As in past years, other 
dairies will receive some of this 
milk for distribution to their cus- 
tomers. Consumers are reminded 
to look for the label which indi- 
cates that supervision was given 
by the Ottawa Vaad Hakashruth. 

Borden’s Dairy will also distri- 
bute Passover butter received from 
Montreal. 


Pledge Redemption Committee 
Keeps U.J.A. Accounts Current 


David Zelikovitz, chairman of 
the United Zionist Council of 
Ottawa, who was given many years 
of devoted service to campaigning 
for Israel, has taken on a new role 
as chairman of the United Jewish 
Appeal Pledge Redemption Com- 
mittee. 

Mr. Zelikovitz and his brother 
Nathan have worked as a team 
for years and the unique contribu- 
tion they have made to Zionist 
effort in this community is worthy 
of the highest commendation. They 
do the job others are reluctant to 
tackle and they do it conscientious- 
ly and successfully. 

The Pledge Redemption Com- 
mittee was set up by the Vaad 
Ha’Ir to maintain year-round col- 
lection machinery for the United 
Jewish Appeal. Most U.J.A. donors 
are very conscientious about re- 
sponding to statements by mail. 
But a few need the personal re- 
minders which can only come from 
a continuing concern on the part 
of a permanent lay committee. 

The committee has already held 
two meetings and early returns 
indicate that good results have 
been obtained from the phone calls 
and personal visits which commit- 
tee members have made. 

In addition to David and Nathan 
Zelikovitz, those who are taking a 
leading part in the collection pro- 
gram are Jules Loeb, Mervin 
Mirsky, Hy Bessin, Alex Betcher- 
man, Morris Zagerman, Arnold 
Lithwick, Harry Weidman, Irving 
Lithwick, Myer Stein, Louis 
Weiner, Jacob Bookman, Joe Zeli- 
kovitz, Herbert Zagerman, Max 
Zelikovitz, Max Kizell, Bert Krugel, 
Harry Goldstein, Jack Levin, Mau- 
rice Waxman and Lawrence Kapel- 
ler. M. Sidney Green is staff co- 
ordinator. 


CATERED FOODS 

The Ottawa Vaad Hakashruth 
wishes to emphasize that 
there are no caterers in 
Ottawa who are authorized to 
produce Kosher L’Pesach 
food items under its super- 
vision. 

During the course of the rest 
of the year, only food pre- 
pared and served at the 
Jewish Community Centre or 
in any of the Synagogues 
bears such endorsement.

Passover Mazoth 

Make sure that the matzoth you 
purchase for Passover bear the 
inscription “Kosher L’Pesach — 
Kosher for Passover Use”. Mat- 
zoth sold for year-round use bear 
the inscription “Not for Passover 
Use.” 


Passover 

Hospitality 

In keeping with the spirit 
of the Passover season, a 
number of people in the com- 
munity have offered the hos- 
pitality of their homes to out- 
of-town university students, 
civil servants and others who 
will not be able to spend 
Pesach with their own fami- 
lies because of distance or 
other factors. 

Anyone in this position 
who would like to spend the 
first and second nights of 
Passover with a Jewish fam- 
ily is asked to call Arnold 
Grant at the Centre, 232-7306. 
Arrangements can also be 
made for the full week of 
Passover if desired. 

If you know of someone 
who is a bit shy about coming 
forward, Mr. Grant will be 
pleased to extend the invita- 
tion.

Nap Kopinsky 


Honoured for 25 
Years of Service 

Nap Kapinsky, whose name has 
become synonymous with B’nai 
B’rith service and aspirations has 
been cited by Parliament Chapter 
A.Z.A. “for 25 years of devotion 
to the community and B’nai B’rith”. 

Sam Koffman was the master of 
ceremonies at the testimonial din- 
ner held earlier this month. Sol 
Max introduced the guest of hon- 
our and greetings were extended 
by Sam Lampert, president, Ottawa 
Lodge, Bert Krugel, president- 
elect, Parliament Lodge and Barney 
Grosser of Montreal, representing 
District No. 22 of B’nai B’rith. 

Jeff Polowin, president of Par- 
liament Chapter A.Z.A. presented 
an engraved plaque to the hon- 
ouree. Over $200 was raised for 
a university scholarship. 


Charter Lost 

The Charter belonging to B’nai 
B’rith Women’s Chapter No. 421 
appears to have been lost. 

Anyone who may know of the 
whereabouts of the Charter or any 
other old documents or records of 
the Chapter is asked to communi- 
cate with Mrs. David Molot, 
722-1850. 


A public tribute on the 22nd 
Anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto 
Uprising will be held Thursday, 
April 29 at 8:30 p.m., at the Jewish 
Community Centre under the joint 
auspices of the Ottawa Vaad Ha’Ir 
and the Labour Zionist Council. 

Word has iust been received that 
the guest speaker will be David 
Lewis, Q.C., of Toronto, former 
member of parliament for York 
South and vice-president of the 
New Democratic Party of Canada. 
Mr. Lewis is an outstanding 
speaker who is much in demand at 
gatherings throughout the country. 

Others who will be participating 
are Matityahu Dagan, Counsellor 
of the Embassy of Israel, Rabbi 
Simon L. Eckstein, Rabbi J. Ben- 
jamin Friedberg and Rabbi Abra- 
ham Rubin. 

The students of the Hillel Aca- 
demy and Hebrew School and the 
teen-age clubs of the community 
will also take part. 


By now it has become a tradition 
for Jewish communities all over 
the world to observe the Anniver- 
sary of the Warsaw Ghetto Up- 
rising of 1943, not only as a tribute 
to the countless Jewish martyrs 
and heroes of the Nazi era but 
also as a symbol of resistance to 
oppression and condemnation of 
the heinous atrocities of the Nazis, 
which resulted in the ruthless 
annihilation of six million Jews. 

This year’s observance assumes 
added significance in view of the 
emergence of neo-Nazi manifesta- 
tions and the spread of hate 
propaganda. 

Organizations are urged not to 
arrange any other function on that 
day and make every effort that 
their entire membership attends 
this manifestation of solidarity of 
Jews in Ottawa with the Jewish 
martyrs.

8th Annual Art Show April 7, 8 


Under the distinguished patron- 
age of Their Excellencies the 
Governor-General and Madame 
George Vanier, the Ottawa Section 
of the National Council of Jewish 
Women of Canada will hold its 
8th annual exhibition and sale of 
paintings and sculpture by leading 
and promising Canadian artists 
from coast to coast. 

Since its inception eight years 
ago, this exhibition has come to be 
regarded as a major cultural event 
in the City of Ottawa. It is hoped 
that, by affording artists an 
additional opportunity to exhibit 
their works and the public a chance 
to view them, it may contribute a 
stimulus to the further develop- 
ment of Canadian art. 

Davidson Dunton, president and 
vice-chancellor of Carleton Uni- 
versity and chairman of the Royal 
Commission on Bilingualism and 
Biculturalism will officially open 
the Exhibition on Wednesday, 
April 7, at 8:30 p.m., at the Assem- 
bly Hall, Lansdowne Park. 

Due to space limitations, opening 
night will be by invitation. Guests | 


will be invited to view the works 
from 7:30 p.m. and to ballot for 
more than 160 works of art, all 
fixed in price by the artists and 
ranging from $35. to $200. Ballots 
will be drawn for each, and the 
works will be sold to those bidders 
whose names are drawn first. On 
Thursday, April 8, the general 
public will be invited to view the 
exhibition from 10 a.m. until 9 
p.m. and the paintings and sculp- 
tures may then be purchased by 
direct sale. 

The arrangements for this year’s 
exhibition have been undertaken 
by a committee of twenty-one 
women headed by Mrs. Jack Sob 
cov. Ralph Allen has donated the 
door prize and the masters of 
ceremony will be Dr. Emmetf 
O’Grady and Campbell McDonald. 

The honourary advisers are: Dr. 
Charles Comfort, Dr. A. Y. Jack- 
son, Henri Masson, Carl Schaefer, 
and Jacques de Tonnancour. The 
judges, Dr. Charles Comfort and 
Carl Weiselberger will award 
prizes totalling $450. for the three 
best paintings.

During 1964, over 42,000 indivi-

Observe Israel's I7lh 
Anniversary May 5lh 


The Jewish Community of Otta- 
wa will observe the 17th Anniver 
sary of Israel’s Independence on 
Wednesday evening, May 5, ac- 
cording to a joint announcement 
by Mervin Mirsky, president of the 
Ottawa Vaad Hair and David 
Zelikovitz, chairman of the United 
Ziomist Council. 

The evening will begin with a 
brief Service of Commemoration 
at Congregation Beth Shalom at 
8:15 p.m. which will be addressed 
by His Excellency Gershon Avner, 
Ambassador of Israel to Canada. 
It will be followed by an anniver- 
celebration including singing, 
and a social hour in the 
of the Jewish 

Community Centre. 

The evening will also feature 
an Israel Trade Fair and Fashion 
which will be set up in a 
series of booths in the auditorium. 
Plans now being worked out with 
(he co-operation of Meir Livnat, 
and Trade Commissioner of 
Israel in Montreal will bring to 
Ottawa a larger and more elaborate 


display than last year of the high 
quality goods, products and arti- 
facts which are being made in 
Israel today. 

Among the many items which 
will be featured are wines, jewel- 
lry, candy, chocolates, oranges, 
soaps, canned good, linens, woolens, 
ceramics, copper and patina wear. 
The Fashion Show and Boutique 
Shop will be particularly eye-cat- 
ching. 

Zim Lines, El A1 and the Israel 
Tourist Office will send representa- 
tives to man their booths. An 
unusual exhibit of ceremonial 
objects, medals, coins and stamps 
has also been assembled for 
showing. 

The committee in charge is 
enthusiastic about the project and 
anticipates that this year’s obser- 
vance will attract one of the 
largest crowds ever for an Israel 
anniversary. Organizations in par- 
ticular are requested to refrain 
from scheduling any conflicting 
event on May 5. 


THE FACTS ABOUT KOSHER CATERING 

The Ottawa Vaad Hakashruth wishes to clarify a misconception 

which appears to exist about "Kosher Catering" in Ottawa. These 

are the facts: 

1. There are no caterers in Ottawa under the supervision of the 
Vaad Hakashruth. 

2. Kosher catering requires the employment of a permanent 
mashgiach who follows the preparation process from inception 
to completion whenever and wherever food is served. No 
arrangement of this kind exists outside the Jewish Com- 
munity Centre and the Synagogue. 

3. The Jewish Community Centre and the Synagogues are the 
only institutions or establishments where full-time supervision 
is available. Food prepared and served by caterers in these 
locations therefore meets kashruth specifications. 

4. The Vaad Hakashruth and the Rabbis of Ottawa cannot accept 
the kashruth reliability of catered foods prepared or served 
in any other location. 

5. Consumers are asked to guide themselves accordingly. Further 
enquiries should be directed to your Rabbi or the Vaad 
Hakashruth at 232-7306.

The camp caters to children 
between the ages of 4 and 11. 
They are divided into three basic 
groups: Camp Dreidel - 4 and 5; 
Camp Shalom - 5% to 8 and Camp 
Adventure - 8% to 11. Dreidel 
children come at 9:30 and leave 
at 2:00. The older children’s pro- 
gram starts at 9:30 and continues 
through 4:00 o’clock. Campers 
bring their lunches and are pro- 
vided with milk or juice as well 
as morning or afternoon snacks. 

Arnold Grant, Program Director 
of the Centre will direct the camp. 
He will be assisted by Mrs. Ben 
Harris who did such an able job 
last summer. The staff includes 
unit heads, counselors, instructors 
and specialists who have had 
previous camping experience and 
who enjoy working with children. 

The program is geared to 
providing a happy, learning exper- 
ience for youngsters who are either 
too young to attend a country camp 
or whose parents prefer them to 
remain in the city during the 
summer months. There is plenty 
of opportunity for self-expression 
through a varied program of 
swimming, crafts, dramatics, 
athletic, cultural and group acti- 
vities. 

The complete facilities of the 
Jewish Community Centre are at 
the disposal of the campers and 
full use is made of the outdoor 
swimming pool, gymnasium, neigh- 
bouring playgrounds and parks. 


Al Segal Heads 
Benefit Society 


Mervin Butovsky, assistant pro- 
fessor of English literature at Sir 
George Williams University in 
Montreal will direct the camp for 
the third successive season. Mr. 
Butovsky has had extensive camp 
experience in this country and in 
Israel. He has done an outstanding 
job as director and his return will 
be welcomed by campers and staff 
alike. 

Stephen Victor, a second year 
University of Ottawa Law School 
student will be assistant director. 
This is his second year in that 
position and his seventh as a staff 
member of B’nai B’rith. The 
waterfront will be handled by 
Sheldon Taylor, a well-qualified 
swim specialist who attends Carle- 
ton University. Older unit heads, 
a crafts instructor and interested 
counselors will round out the pro- 
gram staff. 

In the area of health and safety, 
the camp employs a full-time resi- 
dent doctor and a full-time resident 
nurse. The infirmary is well- 
equipped and heated on cool 
nights. 

Tasteful kosher meals are pre- 
pared by a head chef, pastry chef 
and kitchen assistants. All-night 
rounds are made by a security 
officer employed for that purpose. 

In addition to an extensive 
waterfront, tripping, crafts, cera- 
mics and athletic program, the 
staff this year will be moving into 
higher quality dramatic, musical, 
cultural arts and riding activities. 
The 15 year-old Pathfinder Group 
will enjoy an enriched program in- 
cluding a visit to the Stratford 
Shakespearean Festival, Upper 
Canada Village and other places 
of historic interest. 

Camp B’nai BTith enters its 20th 
consecutive season of service to 
the Jewish community with a 
reputation as one of the best camps 
in this part of the country. It is 
a fully-accredited member of both 
the Ontario and Quebec Camping 
Associations, meeting standards of 
staff, facilities and program equal 
to or better than many commer- 
cially-operated camps, whose fees 
must of necessity be higher because 
of the profit factor.

season and S200 for each three 
and a half week period. It is 
an all-inclusive package covering 
resident care, horseback riding, 
laundry, canteen, gratuities and 
transportation. Its accessibility to 
the city is also a plus factor for 
visiting or in the event of emer- 
gency. 

There are still a few vacancies 
open in the various age groups but 
these are filling up fast. Parents 
planning to send their children are 
urged to contact Sidney Shapiro, 
688 Fraser Ave., 728-7164 as quick- 
ly as possible to avoid disappoint- 
ment. 


Canada-lsrael 

Health Suryey 

The Harvard School of Public 
Health is currently investigating 
the feasibility of conducting an 
epidemiologic health survey of 
Americans who have migrated to 
Israel and their brothers and sis- 
ters in the U.S.A. and Canada. 

The purpose of the study is to 
determine whether differences in 
mode of life, nutrition and occupa- 
tion between siblings are associated 
with differences in the risk of de- 
veloping heart disease. 

If any members of the commu- 
nity have relatives who have emi- 
grated from Canada to Israel they 
are invited to co-operate in the 
study by completing a question- 
naire which may be obtained by 
writing to: Canada-lsrael Health 
Survey, Harvard School of Public 
Health, 1 Shattuck Street, Boston, 
Massachusetts, 02115. 


Camp B’nai B’rith’s fee is based 
on non-profit operations. The fee 
is $400 for the full seven-week

nick, Mrs. Sol Sherman, Irving

In 1964, the Day Camp enjoyed 
one of the most successful seasons 
in its history. Aided by good 
weather and a top waterfront staff, 
the number of children who learn- 
ed to swim surpassed all previous 
highs. The children spent an ideal 
summer which has every likelihood 
of being repeated this year.

New York American Jewish musi- 
cal comedy stage will appear in a

Jewish Community Centre on Sun-

tress, Charlotte Cooper; the well-

of Yiddish theatre into scores of

community for help with its 
Mo’Oss Chittim program. Letters 
are in the mail now drawing 
attention to this sacred tradition 
which makes it possible for every 
Jew to have the basic necessities 
for Pesach. 

In addition to local families in 
need, the Jewish Aid Society this 
year has undertaken the responsi- 
bility of helping to provide matzah 
and Passover comforts for Jews in 
Israel through the medium of the 
Chief Rabbi of Israel’s Mo’Oss 
Chittim (Matzah Fund). 


In their letter to the community, 
Samuel Caplan and Solomon 
Zelikovitz, secretary and treasurer 
of the Jewish Aid Society have 
expressed the hope that the appeal 
will evoke a generous and warm- 
hearted response. Every contribu- 
tion is needed and will be grate- 
fully accepted. 

Donations should be sent to the 
Jewish Aid Society, 453 Rideau 
Street, Ottawa. Since there will be 
no personal calls, the group must 
rely solely on remittances by mail. 
Please do not fail to respond.

THE MASTER PLAN FOR CAMP B’NAI B RITH — A CAMP FOR OUR OWN CHILDREN IN WHICH WE CAN REALLY TAKE PRIDE 


This is a long-range master plan of our Camp B'nai B'rith developed by Donald 
Graham & Associates, landscape architects of Ottawa. It shows present buildings, 
proposed changes and improvements earmarked for future development. 

When the first busload of campers arrives this summer, they will be able to see 
a new entrance, many new trees planted, freshly-painted cabins, a new front entrance 


on the dining hall, a new landscaped area for assemblies, new docks at the water- I 
front and separate boating and swimming areas. These improvements are the net I 
result of months of planning and preparation by a dedicated Camp Committee I 
who merit your interest, encouragement and support.
