News Brief

The Canada-Israel Committee gave a dinner in honor of Canada’s new Ambassador to Israel, Joseph S. Stanford Tuesday and held a farewell reception for Israel’s outgoing Ambassador, Mordechai Shalev. Stanford, who will replace Ambassador Edward Lee, joined the Canadian foreign service in 1960 and has served in Paris, Bonn and Jamaica. In an interview with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Shalev said he is leaving the Israeli foreign service because he has reached the retirement age but intends to give lectures and write articles on foreign affairs. He and his wife will live in Jerusalem.
