Scope and Content
The program opens with Sonia reciting a poem about water. Sonia is filmed near Almonte, at one of her favourite spots where the water rushes in and around some rocks. She attempts to capture the spiritual feelings found in nature in her water colour paintings and works to share this experience with others. Transition is the theme of her plein-air paintings, which the water symbolizes. She paints the energy of sacred places that speak to her and hopes that the beauty she sees will come out through her painting.

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)

Notes
1. Talk took place at Agudath Israel synagogue. 2. Dr. Truda Rosenberg is introduced by Ros Wallock. Dr. Rosenberg first speaks about her husband Imre's life and then her own experience. She came to Ottawa in 1958 while her husband came here as a Polish refugee in 1949. He was not able to practice law in Ottawa but after a series of menial jobs, did go to work for lawyer Sam Berger. Imre was helped by Rabbi Lifschutz who invited him to dinner on Shabbat every week. He painted throughout his life, even when he was extremely poor. Born in Slovakia in 1913, he was the son of an Orthodox rabbi. He became a Zionist leader who worked to smuggle out Jews to Czechoslovakia and send Jews to Palestine. He served under Churchill during the war in Britain and brought 301 Jewish orphans from Theresenstadt to England. Truda read an excerpt from a book about Imre's life called "A Jew in Deed". Imre died in 1986. Dr. Truda Rosenberg goes on to describe her remarkable life. She grew up in Poland and experienced the Jewish ghetto before being captured and sent in a cattle car bound for the Belzec extermination camp. She jumped from the train and survived the war by assuming a new identity as a Catholic and later a German refugee from Poland. Apparently, with her honey blond hair, blue eyes and light colouring, she did not "look Jewish". After the liberation of the camps, she worked as an interpreter for the British Army because she spoke several languages. After her war experience she realized that she wanted to "serve", so she went to England to train as a nurse. Her entire family was lost during the Holocaust, so she came to Ottawa to become a public health nurse. She worked in the market area where the poor Jewish and non-Jewish families lived. Truda met her husband Imre who was selling real estate when she was investing in a house. She was not affiliated with any synagogue at this time, but was busy studying psychology and eventually became a psychologist. In 1971, the Rosenbergs made aliya and together they learned to speak Hebrew. Truda set up an oral history program about the Holocaust in Israel, worked as a psychologist and lectured at Haifa University. Imre helped settle new immigrants from the Soviet Union. They returned to Ottawa in 1980 where Truda set up a private practice as a clinical psychologist and Imre worked for the Federal Government's Refugee Advisory Committee. He died in 1986. Truda was invited to lecture at the University of Warsaw. She visited the Belzec extermination camp where her family died. Remembering her mother's parting words, Truda assured her that she had kept her Jewish soul. Truda answered a few questions from the audience and was presented with a gift from Stuart Lazear.
