We heard today that our Jewish paper, The Canadian Jewish News, a fabulous comprehensive newspaper of our community for 42 years, will have to close in two months - June 20th. For many of us, this is tragic news because it's a forum which gave a comprehensive background of all that's happening locally, within Israel and internationally for the Jewish community. The Toronto Jewish community is quite large, and for many Jews, this was their main connection, if not to a shul or JCC, than it was certainly the subscription to the CJN. Many have looked forward to reading it and it will be greatly missed.
