Andrea Bronfman - Personal Life

Personal Life

Bronfman was born into a British Jewish family in London in 1945 to Hyam and Doris Morrison. Her father was a London clothier who was a leader of the United Joint Israel Appeal, and her mother, a homemaker, was a friend of the British Friends of the Museums of Israel. Her parents were also ardent Neo-Zionists.

She moved to Canada as a young bride with her first husband, David Cohen, (the grandson of Lyon Cohen, a prominent businessman, philanthropist, and founder of the Canadian Jewish Congress and the "Jewish Times", the first Canadian Jewish newspaper). After that marriage ended in divorce, she married Charles Bronfman, who had served as best man at her marriage to Cohen.

Famous quotes containing the words life and/or personal:

    One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is, I think, to have a happy childhood.
    Agatha Christie (1890–1976)

    I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming that comes when you finish the life of the emotions and of personal relations; and suddenly you find—at the age of fifty, say—that a whole new life has opened before you, filled with things you can think about, study, or read about.... It is as if a fresh sap of ideas and thoughts was rising in you.
    Agatha Christie (1891–1976)
