(AJNews) – My father Boris Chenkis is in the fashion industry. He is always fascinated by retail news in other countries. While watching Israel Daily TV he saw an interview with Liat Goldhammer, the CTO of an Israeli startup called Sonovia. She was being interviewed about new fabric finishing technology for textile manufacturing developed at Bar-Ilan University. Liat was explaining the newly developed technology that would repel and kill bacteria located on clothing. The interview Boris would be watching was in early January. The Covid19 effect had not yet become a worldwide pandemic, so my father just listened with interest about this new Israeli startup.

Watching ILTV again on March 18th, Dr. Jason Migdal, a microbio researcher in Israel, discussed how the Sonovia technology mechanically impregnates metal nanoparticles into masks that destroys microorganisms in fabric. This was verified by two independent labs. And it was durable and washable! Now Boris was very interested.

With the Covid virus becoming widespread, Sonovia had positively impacted Israeli doctors and health professionals by providing them with the technologically advanced masks. On May 12th another interview about the Sonovia mask technology took place on ILTV. My father saw an opportunity to get involved. During my father’s teenage years he lived in Israel studying and working at kibbutz Rosh Hanikra. With this connection to Israel that never left his heart, he wanted to support an Israeli startup and purchased masks to keep his family, friends and community safe. Soon after this first purchase he received an email from Sonovia to help distribute these masks in Canada. Boris said yes! And the masks were shipped from Habonim street in Ramat Gan to Vancouver!

Boris reached out with excitement to family and friends. Within days he was thrilled to be delivering hundreds of masks and supporting an Israeli company. Nothing could be better. I have now joined my father to distribute Sonovia masks with leading technology to fight against Covid. For more details about the Sonovia mask, please visit
