History Biographical
Israel Shinder was born in 1919 at Dubosari, Russia, near the Rumanian border. He came to Canada with his parents, Jack Shinder (1896 - 1946), Nellie Shinder (1895 - 1968) and sister Gert (1922- ) in 1924, sailing from Trieste, Italy on the President Wilson. They traveled under the auspices of the Jewish Colouronization Association, Bucharest. They settled first in Montreal before moving on to Ottawa in 1929. Israel Shinder started school in downtown Montreal. In Ottawa he attended York Public School and then the High School of Commerce. He worked for his father in his clothing and dry goods store, Royal Furnishings on Rideau Street, before enlisting in the Royal Canadian Air Force. After World War II, he and his brother-in-law, Manny Lightstone started a commercial door business which became Ambico. He retired in 1991 from a very successful business career. His son Jack, in partnership with Manny Lightstone’s son-in-law Judah Silverman, now operate the business.

Notes taken while speaking with Israel Shinder, July 19, 2000. I. S. is a cousin to Sol Shinder. His brother Bernard Shinder lives in Boca Raton, Florida. Gittel, called Gert, married Jack Goldstein. Jack is deceased. Mother’s name was Naomi (Pascar) and was born in Bindar, Rumania. Father, Yankel, had the English name of Jack. His father, Jack, spoke Rumanian and grasped French readily when moving to Montreal. He always spoke French better than English. Mother, Naomi, spoke Russian with limited English. 75% of the Jewish community communicated in Yiddish. Yiddish was the home language for the Shinders. Parents never wrote nor read English well. Family ties were close and family was Naomi Shinder’s life. Shinders came from Dubosari, a Russian town on the Dniester River which formed part of the frontier between Russian and Rumania. After Russian Revolution in 1917, no government control and bands of brigands constantly creating havoc. Hired a boat to cross the River and lived in Kishinev for 3 and a half years with the approval of the Jewish Immigrant Aid Society who agreed to arrange their immigration elsewhere. I. Shinder’s father was a businessman selling textiles. He had left Dubosari six months ahead of his family and got a job in Kishinev so he could support them. The Shinders left for Canada from Trieste, Italy in 1924, having travelled from Kishinev by train. Jack Shinder settled in Montreal because Jack Shinder’s father, his wife, and all his brothers and sisters but one were living in Montreal. Business was not going well in Montreal so Jack moved his family to Ottawa, as his father and brothers had done. Came to Ottawa in 1929 because it was a smaller city than Montreal and not as competitive as Montreal. Israel Shinder never heard of the historical idea that peddling licenses were far less in Ottawa, as compared with Montreal. Israel Shinder started school in English in downtown Montreal. Schoolmates were Italian, Jewish and Poles. Standard of living was poor. In Ottawa, attended public school at York Street, and then attended the High School of Commerce. Jack Shinder repeated in Ottawa his Montreal experience of peddling first, then opening a store. He sold his merchandise on credit in Hull, Gatineau, Point Gatineau, Mechanicsville where his French language facility was an advantage. Jack Shinder always had a warehouse which evolved into a store. The clothing and dry goods sold appealed to a lower economic level. Israel Shinder worked for his father before enlisting in the Royal Canadian Air Force. When his father died in 1946, formed a partnership with his brother-in-law, Manny Lightstone. Israel Shinder had enough French to conduct business but was most dissatisfied with the clothing business and the credit aspects. He advertised for a business proposition and John Buchanan replied. This took place in 1955 - 1956. Mr. Buchanan had a franchise for Ambassador Manufacturing Co., St. Lambert, Quebec. The product was overhead doors. Israel Shinder had no engineering background and got along well without it. He was very mechanical, could both read and make drawings. Manny Lightstone stayed at Royal Furnishings while Israel Shinder established the door business. Buchanan died, and Israel Shinder bought out Buchanan’s widow and within two years convinced Manny Lightstone to sell Royal Furnishings and join him in the door business. The door business was mainly industrial, overhead doors, rolling steel doors, and a small part residential. Manufactured steel doors, door frames and side windows and the manufacturing aspect of the business began in Ottawa in 1961. Ambico the business name, evolved from Ambassador. Ambico knew their products, always gave fair quotations and work was very satisfactory. Israel Shinder concentrated on the accounting, financial, accounts while Manny Lightstone did the drawings and quotations. They were always challenged with the business possibilities. In the late 1990's, after Israel Shinder’s retirement in 1991, his son Jack began to run the business in partnership with Manny Lightstone’s son-in-law, Judah Silverman. The business has evolved into high tech doors which are sound, fire, explosion and bullet proof. Israel and Manny have worked together on these developments. They initially sold very little in the United States but they worked hard to develop a network of representatives who dig out sales possibilities. 80% of Ambico’s business is now in the United States Read and corrected by Israel Shinder on Monday, July 24, 2000.
