Admin History/Bio
In 1989, the Walk Committee, headed by Elaine Lightstone, attempted to get an even larger turnout by having two routes that covered the expansive Jewish community area in Toronto. The north route commenced at the Promenade Mall on Bathurst north of Clark; the south route started at Bathurst and Lawrence. Where the two routes crossed, at Beth Tikvah Synagogue on Bayview Avenue, a checkpoint featured an art display by students of eight Toronto day schools. About 13,000 people came out to take part in the Walk, the theme of which was "Footsteps for Freedom." Funds raised supported the absorption of immigrants in Israel. As it had for many years, B'nai Brith manned several checkpoints, but it was joined this year by a number of UJA divisions: the New Leadership Council, Societies, Young Executives and Professionals, and Students. The UJA staff coordinators for the Walk and the Festival were Rosie Sosnowicz and David Gotfrid. New to the Festival this year were displays by Metro Toronto emergency services. The Festival was chaired by David and Judy Engel.
