Yeshiva University Montreal Convocation and Dinner Raises $1,100,000

Jul 23, 2009 — Over 600 attendees ensured the historic success of YU’s Montreal Special Convocation and Dinner, held on Monday, June 15, 2009, at the Shaar Hashomayim Congregation in Westmount. The event raised $1,100,000 for scholarships for Canadian students attending Yeshiva University’s undergraduate and graduate schools.

Honourees included Supreme Court Justice Morris J. Fish and Senator Yoine J. Goldstein, each of whom received an honourary Doctor of Laws Degree. Rabbi Howard S. Joseph, retiring as spiritual leader of Montreal’s Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue after almost 40 years, received an honourary Doctor of Divinity Degree.

The Yeshiva University Distinguished Alumnus Award was conferred upon prominent Montreal Jewish communal leader, Donald S. Davis, who has advanced the Jewish education agenda for several decades. Special Awards were conferred upon Norman and Johanne Sternthal and Mrs. Alta Chaya Hirschprung in honor of the Sternthals’ establishment of a Rabbinic Fellowship in memory of Rabbi Pinchas Hirschprung, as well as in tribute to the memory of Norman’s parents, Joel and Sarah Sternthal. Rabbi Hirschprung served as Chief Rabbi of Montreal and was also Norman Sternthal’s teacher. Pearl Jonassohn, retiring as Assistant Director of Development after some 35 years, also received a Scroll of Appreciation Award.

The event was co-Chaired by Morton Brownstein, Samuel Aberman and Renee Lieberman, with David J. Azrieli as Honourary Dinner Chair,
