History Biographical
The first Canadian newspaper, the Canadian Jewish Times, began publication on Dec. 10, 1897 in Montreal during the period of modern Zionism under Theodor Herzl and the Dreyfus trial in France and a subsequent wave of anti-Semitism. It was an English language fortnightly. The initial editorial stated that the Jewish community “ should possess an organ of their own for the dissemination of Jewish news, interchange of ideas and the advocacy as well as the defence of Jewish rights as free citizens of a free country”. It was published by two young men, Lyon Cohen, 28 and Sam Jacobs, 26. The periodical covered both national and local events, social news, London and New York columnists, reprints from American and British Jewish journals, rabbinical sermons, letters and literary contributions. The Canadian Jewish Chronicle was the successor to the Canadian Jewish Times in 1914.

History Biographical
The National Council of Jewish Women was established in the United States in 1893, to help new Jewish immigrants. A Canadian branch began in Toronto in 1897. In Montreal the Baron de Hirsch Institute covered immigrant aid at that time, and the Montreal NCJW chapter was only founded in 1918. The International Council was formed in 1912. NCJW is dedicated to furthering human welfare in the Jewish and general community, locally, nationally, and internationally. They do and did so through scholarships, summer camps, libraries, aiding immigrants, volunteer work, pre-and post-war refugee aid, gerontology research, services to the elderly, support of the Golden Age Association, shipments of play and school materials to Israel and North Africa, lobbying for equal pay and other human rights bills, and opening a shelter for battered Jewish women. Their members across Canada and the world both fundraise and volunteer.The National office of NCJW Canada moved from Montreal to Toronto in the mid-1950s before settling in Winnipeg in the early 1990s where it remained until 2015.
Custodial History

History Biographical
Rabbi Herman Abramowitz was born in Russia in 1880, and came to America in 1890. He was educated at the public schools, the College of the City of New York (from which he graduated in 1900 with a Bachelor of Arts) and at the Jewish Theological Seminary. From 1900 to 1903, he took a post-graduate course in philosophy at Columbia University. In 1907 he received the degree of Doctor of Hebrew Literature from the Seminary, being the first graduate to receive this honour. In 1903, he accepted a call from the Shaar Hashomayim Congregation, Montreal. Dr. Abramowitz developed the congregational Sunday School, and Hebrew Day School; the Women's Auxiliary; the Young Peoples' Society and other activities. He was active in all communal enterprises ofa philanthropic and educational character and in 1910 personally raised from subscriptions the entire cost of the building of the Mount Sinai Sanatorium for tubercular patients. He was also in charge of the organization which raised annual subscriptions for the maintenance of the Sanatorium. His part in the Plamondon case was as a key witness in this infamous anti-Semitic libel case in Quebec City in 1913. In 1909, Dr. Abramowitz visited the Jewish agricultural colonies in the western provinces of Canada to establish religious schools and other institutions. He was invited to become a member of the Canadian Committee and in 1913 was sent to Paris to confer with the Jewish Colonization Association heads. He also represented Canada at the Congress held later that year in Vienna. Shortly after the outbreak of the World War I, Dr. Abramowitz was appointed Jewish Chaplain in the Canadian Army with the rank of Captain. He was also active on the speakers' team in all the Victory Loan campaigns and relief drives held during the war. He was Vice-President of the United Synagogue of America; Director, Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of Montreal; Director, Montreal United Talmud Torahs; and a life Governor of the Montreal General Hospital. Dr. Abramowitz married in 1911 to Theresa Bokar and had one son, David Lester and one daughter, Judith.
