We both attended Talmud Torah Day School, Judy in Edmonton and Malcolm in Vancouver. After graduating from UBC, we did graduate work in the United States, lived in Toronto, and settled in Vancouver in 1975 with our young sons, Jason and Todd.
Like our parents and grandparents, we have always been active community volunteers. Congregation Beth Israel, the Jewish Community Centre, Hillel, and more recently, the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver, have been our focus. Judy chaired the Federation’s Women’s Division Campaign in 1988 and is now involved as a professional. Malcolm was a founding Director and served as President from 1995-97.
Highlights of our Jewish life include a summer in Israel with our sons in 1979, and standing under the chupah at Jason’s marriage to Deidre Vernon in 1994. Our parents, Philip and Helen Weinstein and David and Evelyn Kline taught us the value of family, learning, tzedakah, and community involvement. This fund gives tangible form to their legacy and to ours.
