Morris Black Speaking Contest

"We must have faith in G-d and hope that the passing of a human is not the end. Instead of

mourning teach others the value of study and education. A wonderful heritage has been

given unto us." 

These are the words of Morris Black 1970 in his will setting up the contest.

Initially the contest was an essay contest in Jewish Community in Peterborough where he lived.

Now 46 years later the tradition continues with the contest in Hamilton and surrounding areas.

Morris lived with his wife Natalie (now living in Toronto) in Peterborough where he worked in the 

family clothing store. He loved music and wrote several pieces. Judaism and  Israel were his passions.

 

Morris Black speaking contest is open to Grades 3-8 in Hamilton an surrounding areas.
