UJA Federation of Greater Toronto is delighted to announce the generous gift of $1 million to UJA Federation’s Tomorrow Campaign, made by the Koschitzky Family. This outstanding gift was made in honour of Morris Zbar, President & CEO of UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, for his outstanding leadership and commitment.
“This tribute to Morris is twofold; first, to give thanks to Morris the man, for who and what he is, and second, to give thanks to Morris the leader, for who and what he represents” said David Koschitzky on behalf of the family. “Morris the man has all the characteristics that make up a great Jewish professional. He cares deeply about the Jewish community, and proudly understands what it means to be a Jew. Morris the leader is able to build consensus and inspire those around him. Most importantly he leads by example.”
The Koschitzky’s contribution will support the campaign to develop Sherman Campus, located on Bathurst St. just north of Sheppard Ave., by naming the Morris Zbar Welcome Entrance – a bright and inviting gateway for visitors to Sherman Campus.
“When you enter the Lipa Green Centre through the Morris Zbar Welcome Entrance, you will be entering an environment where each and every professional is an extension of the values that Morris represents, and the standard that he sets” said David Koschitzky.
“I am humbled and thankful for this extremely generous act from the Koschitzky Family” said Morris Zbar. “The Koschitzkys represent the essence of what great community and philanthropic leadership is and that’s why Toronto is one of the great Jewish communities of the world. This outstanding gift towards the Sherman Campus Campaign will create endless opportunities for our community to learn and celebrate our rich Jewish heritage.”
