Greenwalds celebrate 50th (1985)

From the Canadian Jewish News, August 22, 1985

The 50th wedding anniversary of Belle and Harry Greenwald of Linus Road, Willowdale, was celebrated at a luncheon in their honour hosted by their daughter and son-in-law, Carolyn and Joe Feldman, at the Adath Shalom Synagogue.

Harry Greenwald was born in Stacha, Poland in 1911. His parents brought his to Toronto six months later. He worked for Canadian National Telegraph for 28 years and sold automotive parts for many years. He retired in November 1983. He held various positions on Adath Shalom’s board of governors and also was active in the Minsker Farband.

His wife, Belle Seiden, was born in Ripley, Ontario in 1913 and moved to Toronto in 1924. A mutual acquaintance introduced her to Harry in 1930 and the couple were married June 9, 1935. ♦
