History Biographical
Born in September 21, 1918, in Minsk, Joseph Kage (original name Kagedan) received a BA, B.Sc., MA, DSW, and Ph.D. from a variety of Canadian and American universities. He began his career as an educator, then entered the social work field with positions at the Jewish Family Services of Montreal and the McGill University School of Social Work. Dr. Kage became associated with Jewish Immigrant Aid Services (JIAS) in 1947. He was among the first professionals in this field to be engaged by the organization, where he occupied the positions of Director of Social Services, National Executive Director and was subsequently named National Executive Vice-President. He remained with JIAS until his retirement in 1983. The author of numerous articles and studies on immigration, Dr. Kage played a role in Canadian immigration history which extends beyond the boundaries of the Jewish community. A prolific writer, Kage's studies and articles appeared in various newspapers, magazines and professional publications. He was also the author of several books, including With Faith and Thanksgiving: The Story of Two Hundred Years of Jewish Immigration and Immigrant Aid Effort in Canada (1760-1960). He lectured extensively on various aspects of history, social welfare, sociology and psychology across Canada and throughout the world. Aside from his position at JIAS, Kage's communal activities were varied and extensive in both Jewish, non-Jewish and governmental circles. He was a founding member and Chairman of the Admissions Committee and editor of the bulletin of the Corporation of Professional Social Workers of the Province of Quebec; President of the Jewish Public Library; Chairman of the Board of Education of the Hebrew Academy; originator and Chairman of the National Conference on Yiddish and Yiddish Culture; Chairman of the Advisory Board on Immigrant Adjustment, Department of Manpower and Immigration; President of the J.I. Segal Fund for Jewish Culture; National President of the Canada Ethnic Press Federation; served on the grant-awarding panel of the Canadian Ethnic History Project, Secretary of State; and held other positions in various communal bodies. Aside from these organizations, Kage also was a member of several social, fraternal, educational, and historical associations. He died in 1996

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.
