Admin History/Bio
The 1980 Walk for Israel took place on Sunday, May 25. It was chaired by Verne Chelin and Jerry Panet, and the TJC staff coordinator was Mark Gryfe. New to the Walk this year was a "leadership mile" in which 25 prominent community leaders participated. These included Solicitor-General, Robert Kaplan; provincial minister of industry, trade and tourism, Larry Grossman; Toronto alderman, Art Eggleton; John Roberts; Toronto Jewish Congress president, Wilfred Posluns; Murray Koffler; and MIlton Harris. The 11 checkpoints along the 25 kilometre route were named after Israeli cities. 13,000 people turned out for the event.
Part of the Walk's promotion included a letter from Henry "The Fonz" Winkler to the students of Jewish schools in Toronto. The popular celebrity could not attend the Walk, but in his letter, he expressed encouragement for the students' fundraising efforts and wished them well.

Biography
Fred Schaeffer's wife, Beverley, grew up in Kirkland Lake, Ontario. Beverley's grandfather, Hyman Kaplan, emigrated from Vilna, Lithuania in 1907, and after a few years in New York, moved to Toronto. Shortly afterwards he became the first Jew to settle in Kirkland Lake in 1914.
In the 1920s the Jewish community in Kirkland Lake built a permanent synagogue, and acquired the aron kodesh of eastern European design, its lamps, railings, pews and reader’s desk, from the disbanded Ukrainishe Shul in Montreal. In the 1970s the Kirkland Lake Synagogue disbanded and Fred and Beverly Schaeffer acquired the aron kodesh, all of its furnishings, the ner tamid and the parochet. They generously donated these Jewish artifacts to Beth Tikvah Synagogue, Toronto, in 1988, in memory of Isadore Kaplan, father of Beverly Schaeffer and Erich Schaeffer, father of Fred Schaeffer.
Fred, married Beverley in Toronto. Like many children from Kirkland Lake, Beverley had moved to the city to attend university. Fred and Beverley are keen collectors of Canadian art. He is a retired civil engineer and a former chairman of the Canadian art historical committee at the AGO.
