Notice biographique / histoire administrative The Federation (or Farband) of Polish Jews of Canada was established in 1933 in Montreal, across Canada, and in other Western nations. Together with its women's auxiliary, "Ezra", its main efforts were war-related. Before World War II, funds were raised for general aid to Poland's Jews. During and after the war, the Federation sent money and clothing to refugees, brought war orphans to Canada, monitored Canadians' Polish relatives, searched for such relatives (with Canadian Jewish Congress, the Joint Distribution Committee and ORT), tried to save intellectuals and rabbis, and cared for refugee children. Immigrants were helped to integrate, and those Jews interned in Canada by the British were also supported. A flow of information was maintained through ties with international organizations and the Polish consulates and government. The Federation also established a Moess Chittin Fund.
