History Biographical
In 1915, Jewish communities across Canada and in other countries were realizing the need for national Jewish organizations, which could defend and represent Jewish concerns locally and internationally. The Canadian Jewish Alliance was founded in Montreal in 1915, so that it could establish such an organization. Because of the outbreak of World War I, the Canadian Jewish Alliance also engaged in war relief, to aid Jewish civilian sufferers throughout Europe. Its aims also included the advancement of Jewish education and social welfare. Similar committees were formed throughout Canada. The Canadian Jewish Alliance became the Canadian Jewish Congress in 1919, which incorporated all the above goals, as well as the democratic representation of the entire Canadian Jewish community.

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.

CJC0001
History Biographical
Canadian Jewish Congress was founded in Montreal in March 1919. "The Parliament of Canadian Jewry," CJC was constituted as the democratically elected, national organizational voice of the Jewish community of Canada, serving as the community's vehicle for defence and representation. Committed to preserving and strengthening Jewish life, CJC acted on matters affecting the status, rights and welfare of the Canadian Jewish community, other Diaspora communities and the Jewish people in Israel. CJC combatted antisemitism and racism, promoted human rights, fostered interfaith, cross-cultural relations and worked towards tolerance, understanding and goodwill among all segments of society in a multicultural Canada. The organization spoke on a broad range of public policy, humanitarian and social-justice issues on the national agenda that affected the Jewish community and Canadian society at large. Through its charitable operations, CJC provided domestic and international relief aid on a non-sectarian basis, following natural disasters and to isolated Jewish communities in need. The Archives department also fell under the mandate of CJC Charities Committee. In 1999 the CJC national office relocated to Ottawa, with three regional CJC offices (Quebec, Ontario and Pacific), as well as affiliated offices across the country. CJC ceased operations in July 2011, when it was absorbed into the newly-created Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA), along with the Canada-Israel Committee, the Quebec-Israel Committee, National Jewish Campus Life and the University Outreach Committee. CJC and its charitable wing were formally disbanded in late 2015. Since that time the CJCCC National Archives, renamed the Alex Dworkin Canadian Jewish Archives as of January 2016, functions under the aegis of Jewish Federations Canada UIA.
Custodial History
Both the national headquarters and the Quebec Jewish Congress (formerly Quebec Region, Eastern Region) offices of the Canadian Jewish Congress were located in Montreal until 1999, when most of the national office relocated to Ottawa. The National Archives is the repository of records created and received in these offices. The collection also includes materials from the National Office in Ottawa, as well as the national records of Manuel Prutschi, Bernie Farber, and other national departments based in Toronto and Vancouver. The regional offices of Canadian Jewish Congress outside Quebec are little represented in the collection, aside from correspondence from across the country and certain publications which were addressed to the national office.
Notes
General note: The number of paper records in this collection is subject to change, due to additions to Documentation Series Z as well as the ongoing weeding of duplications. Most of the material was created after 1919, with the exception of Series Z, which includes photocopies and a small number of originals dating back as far as 1765.

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
The collection is divided into three parts: an original donation of material relating to the National office in Montreal and other locations up to 1978; National material donated in 2015 by the Winnipeg National headquarters office (1943-2009); and (see Series A) material relating to the Montreal Chapter office (1926-1999)

History Biographical
Softball, and occasionally baseball, has been a pick-up or organized league sport within the Ottawa Jewish community since the early 1900's. The strength of the sport depended on the suitable age categories for players and the available sponsors. The mid 1930's was an active period. Joe Feller (menswear) was approached to be a sponsor for the Jewish Boys Softball League. From 1936 through to 1940-1941 the Joe Feller team stayed together, changing sponsors from Joe Feller to Barney Weiss (Capital Hotel) to Sammy Greenberg (United Coal). Other active periods include the 1950's with Minute Car Wash, I.G.A. (Independent Grocers Association), Budget Motor Sales and Koffman’s as sponsors; the mid 1970's with sponsors Cohen & Cohen, Nepean Motors, Yankel’s, Jewish Community Centre, B’nai B’rith and M. Levinson Salvage as sponsors; late 1980s with sponsors Minto Construction, Shores, Rivers, Cohen & Cohen, Regional Realty, Bakermet, Golden Palace & Fine's Flowers, Mastercraft, Melting Pot, Ottawa Athletic Club, Pollack Personnel, Ron Engineering and Levinson-Viner.
