Israel-Canada Token of Friendship

Advance mail orders for the Israel-Canada Token of Friendship,
produced by the Israel Government Coins and Medals Corp. In honor
of the centennial of Canada's confederation, are now being accepted.
The Token of Friendship, which was announced late last month,
is a nickel-silver piece mounted on a blue card, imprinted in silver.
On the obverse it depicts a stylized maple leaf superimposed on the
Star of David. In the center are the dates: 1867-1967 and below,
Israel's candelabrum symbol and the words: State of Israel, in
English and Hebrew. The legend around the rim reads: "Israel
Salutes the Centennial of Canada's Confederation," in English and
French. The reverse shows a map of Canada beneath which is the
quotation from Isaiah 9:6: ". . . and Peace Without End," inscribed
in English, French, and Hebrew. Israel is so far the only sovereign
nation to honor Canada's centennial by the issue of a numismatic
piece. Orders may be sent until May 31 to Israel-Canada Token of
Friendship, c/o Guaranty Trust Co. of Canada, 366 Bay St.,
Toronto, Ont.

Passover Seder at Borman Hall

By SAM RUBIN
This was my first seder at a
home for the aged. It really would
take a good writer to describe a
seder such as this, but I will try
my best to draw a picture of this
most impressive one I had ever

witnessed.
First, the bright lights, silver
candlesticks at the head table,

beautiful live flowers all around
with their aroma of roses, carried

me away from being a resident in
a "Masev Zkanim."
I had the feeling of being at a
beautiful hotel, attending a ban-
quet. I looked at the smiling, happy
faces of people dressed in their
best fineries and I had a sense of
contentment.
I saw a nun sitting at the head

The second seder was as beauti-
ful as the first, and this night we
had 40 board members and their
wives as guests. The food and wine
at both seders were delicious thanks
to Mrs. Sonnenblick and our fine
housekeeper, Mrs. Weiner and all
of the help.
After it was all over, I went up-
stairs to my room, and I felt a
desire to take my mandolin and
play "After the Ball Was Over,"
but I was too sleepy, so instead, I
said a prayer wishing that we
would all be together again next
year to enjoy these wonderful
seders at Borman Hall.

Coming out from the dining
room, after the seder, a man
asked, "Why didn't they have a
becber of wine for Elijah, like they
do in every Jewish home?" I said,
"Because in every Jewish home,
the door is open for him but we
had all the doors closed and a
policeman in front. lie walked
away because he didn't want to be
arrested for trespassing."

shook bands with her. Mrs. Son-
nenblick introduced us and as I
talked to her, she looked at me
and said, "I see a twinkle in
your eyes." I said, "Ah, that is
from the wine I drank." She
smiled as we said our goodbys.

"Buy With Confidence"

Editor, The Jewish News:
I have read with great interest,
as usual, your Purely Commentary
in the current News. I dearly wish
every parent might read this
powerful page with due under-
standing for the depth of insight
expressed in it. Let me quote one
paragraph which sums up accur-
ately the truth that everyone's
appreciation for justice must be
nothing but a pure culture of his
own subjectivity.
"As a child I reproached my-
self, in accord with you, for not
going to the synagogue often
enough, for not fasting, and so on.
I thought that in this way I was
doing a wrong not to myself but
to you, and I was penetrated by a
sense of guilt . . ."
As I seem to grow in life ap-
preciation I frequently remind my-
self of Emerson's observation: "I
shudder when I realize that God
is a just God."
With my very best regards,
