Once a month we held a volunteer recognition ceremony on Shabbat to honour various committees at the shule. The program was started and run by Deanie Rumack. Each member of that committee was the recipient of a pin and wore it with honour and pride. They also received Certificates of Appreciation. Enclosed in the small box is the pin and an explanation of the design. Rouhama Danto, wife of Cantor Danto, suggested the Hebrew wording. Also included is the rough note of an article for the Canadian Jewish News written by Sid Rumack.
