Project by Aidan Ratner Traditions Here is a interview with
my grandma about my grandpa. Picture of my grandpa When my grandpa
was 5 years old
he came to Canada from
Ireland because there were no jobs. My grandpa is my
dad's father. Introducing my grandpa, Max Ratner. My grandpa's name is Max Ratner. He is 94 years old (but I get the confusion, he looks like he's only 26). When my grandpa was 16 he was a boxer and a body builder and, he also happened to become Mr. Vancouver in his 20's. My grandpa brought back Jewish traditions. (But we're not really Jewish anymore).

Map of Vancouver. Flag of Canada One big tradition is we build furniture. My great grandpa taught my grandpa to build furniture, my grandpa taught my dad, and my dad is teaching me.
