It is always inspiring to see how the WJM resonates around the world with its transformational and positive messages.  A perfect example is the feedback from Daniel Kimmel Q.C., who along with Stephen Victor, Q.C. and Murray Ages, Q.C. made a major pledge to the World’s Jewish Museum.  Dan practiced Business/Commercial and Real Estate Law in Ottawa at Kimmel.Victor.Ages.  He is the past President of Congregation Beth Shalom, past general chairman of UJA/Federation campaign and past President of the Ottawa Jewish Community Foundation.  Dan is married to Marilyn and they have two children and four grandchildren.

“I first learned of the proposed Museum from an article in The Times of Israel about 2 years ago.  I liked the idea of a museum of Jewish accomplishment throughout history and Jewish contribution to the world in every important field of endeavour.  Coincidentally Gail was coming to Ottawa the same week and invited me to join her for coffee.  Her enthusiasm for the project was contagious.  The fact that world renowned architect, Frank Gehry, would design the buildings in a superb location in Tel-Aviv was the icing on the cake.”
