Administrative History
Colleen (Chips) Klein was born in Johannesberg, South Africa in 1947 to Thea and Abe Abramson. Under the stage name of Chiquita Albeniz, Chips was a spanish dancer with the Mercedes Molina Spanish Dance Theatre in South Africa. She met her husband, Paul Klein, while she was on vacation in Margate, South Africa.
Paul was born in Johannesburg on October 1, 1945 to Dorothea Klein (nee Erlanger, born in Frankfurt Germany) and Horst Klein (born in Berlin, Germany). Paul received a BSc in Metalurgical Engineering at the University of the Witwatersrand BSc and an MBA at the University of South Africa. He found work in the field of Metalurgical Engineering.
Chips and Paul married in 1969 and had two children together: Lazar and Talia. The family immigrated to Guelph, ON in 1975. They were largely motivated to emigrate because they wanted to raise their children in a country without apartheid. Paul worked in engineering sales. Chips turned her focus to entrepreneurship. She designed and developed the Eye Maker line of mirrors. She also founded a business consultant company in 1982 called Chipco Canada Inc. One of her clients was the Women Inventors Project, which was founded in 1986 to support inventive, innovative and scientific projects. Chips has also delivered workshops and seminars to a variety of organizations. She has won numerous awards, including the South African Women for Women's Entrepreneurial Role Model award in 1998.
Around 1980, the parents of both Paul and Chips followed them to Ontario. Paul and Chips moved to Toronto with their children in 1991. After their move, they became involved in the Chabad Lubavitch of Markham and Paul is currently President of the congregation. The Klein family are involved in a variety of sports, including marathon running and water skiing.

Physical Description
1 photograph : b&w ; 26 x 21 cm
Scope and Content
Photograph of an upshering at a Lubavitcher synagogue in Toronto, Nov. 1978, with barber, Max Eines. Upsherenish is Yiddish for the haircutting ceremony when a child turns three-years old, and begins a new stage of development as a Jew. A boy receives his first haircut, in which he leaves the payot (sidelocks) as prescribed by the Torah; he also receives his first set of tzitzit (fringes) and kipah (skullcap). During the Omer period, haircuts are not permitted as a sign of mourning over the deaths of Rabbi Akiva's disciples. Lag BaOmer, however, is a day of joy, on which all the rules of mourning during the Omer period are suspended. Therefore, on Lag BaOmer, there are always lots of little three-year old Jewish boys who have been waiting since Passover to have their first haircut.
The elderly man to the right of the boy is his grandfather, Mr. Parshan, who is participating in the ceremony by cutting off locks of his grandson's hair.
