On Jan 17, 2013 Canada Post announced that it will be issuing a stamp to commemorate and honour Raoul Wallenberg, Righteous Among the Nations.The issue date is exactly 28 years since Canada posthumously bestowed honourary Canadian Citizenship on him. The stamp's release will conclude a series of commemmorative and educational events taking place across Canada.

This marks the first time an honourary Canadian is receiving this distinction. Canada Post CEO Deepak Chopra, said "this issue is a fitting way to mark Wallenberg's courage, and his contributions to mankind, and we are proud to add him to our stamp program." Wallenberg would have turned 100 years old on Aug 4, 2012. Both Hungary and Sweden issued stamps to commemorate his 100th birthday. Other countries who have issued stamps honouring Wallenberg are: Argentina, Australia (personalized sheet), Dominica, Guyana, Hungary (x2), Israel, Sweden (x2), Liberia, and the USA.

The Credo of a Judaica Collector

Collections are a study of JEWISH HISTORY and a pursuit of the glorious HERITAGE OF THE JEW. The history of a people is not limited to the pronouncements of its elected leaders or the actions of its public institutions. Neither is history to be confined to major movements and trends alone. HISTORY IS ALL THESE THINGS, yet it is so much more.History is the narration of the lives, aspirations, achievements and tribulations of a people. History is a combination of public and private events, of major movements and minor happenings.

Interest in the achievement of Jews is not limited to those who dedicated their lives to furthering Jewish causes, BUT ALSO IN THE SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENTS OF JEWS IN EVERY LEGITIMATE REALM OF HUMAN INVOLVEMENT. We are interested in Jews who excelled in science, and those who made a name for themselves in the arts. We are interested in Jews who achieved military eminence and we are curious about those Jews who reached positions of political and diplomatic prominence.

Surely there must be reasons for the pre-eminence of Jews which is out of every proportion to our numerical strength in any country in the world outside of ISRAEL. What is it about the JEWISH COMMUNITY in any given country in the world which numerically accounts for the smallest fraction of the total population, yet produces a significant percentage of its host country's leaders in almost every field of endeavor?

A JUDAICA COLLECTION, THEREFORE, IS A "MIRROR' of JEWISH HISTORY AND CREATIVITY throughout the entire world, from creation on down through the centuries. Events that have literally shaped the world and changed the destiny of man, famous discoveries and inventions, the arts and sciences, letters and literature, sports, diplomacy and politics, history and geography and so much more - almost every topic one can think of, can be found in PHILATELIC JUDAICA.

The collector will find the excitement of discovering that famous Jews and Jewish topics and themes are celebrated on postage stamps in far flung places of the world from Albania to Zanzibar, and from Algeria to Zaire. Collections can be built around individuals or topics, and the choice is varied. What is more, it is a collection you and you alone choose and no one else's. No two PHILATELIC JUDAICA COLLECTIONS can ever be alike. Your collection reflects your interests and your personality. Add to that the excitement of your own research and discover that certain stamp may be JUDAICA RELATED, and you have a formula for collecting stamps that just can't be beat. Collecting PHILATELIC JUDAICA also includes the collecting of First Day Covers, which complement the stamps, as well as special cancellations or cachets commemorating events or individuals. All such material is equally as valid in a PHILATELIC JUDAICA COLLECTION.
