Although we were both born and raised in Western Canada, Ellen and I came to Vancouver with our small children in 1951 after 3 years of post graduate study in England. We were well received and my practice was generously supported by the Jewish residents here.
Now, 47 years later, we recently celebrated our 51st wedding anniversary. Our 3 children and 7 grandchildren who have enjoyed the necessities and the niceties of life have unanimously agreed that we should give something of their potential inheritance to the Jewish Family Service Agency to help others who may have been less fortunate.
