Rabbi Reuven Bulka

 Rabbi Reuven Bulka was a prominent figure in Ottawa, appearing on CFRA radio and in the Ottawa Sun where he promoted Kindness Week. 

He died in 2021 and his granddaughter Rikki Ash has published a book this month about him called "Canada's Rabbi"  

My friend went to his Modern Orthodox synagogue and she said he said it was OK to watch baseball on the Sabbath because - and I braced for an explanation citing Talmudic authorities - "Jews like baseball. But only during the playoffs!" or the World Series!
