History Biographical
FEDERATION CJA was founded in 1916 as the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies, with the first campaign held in 1917. The Federation originally consisted of 12 Jewish agencies: the Baron de Hirsch Institute, Mount Sinai Sanatorium, Ladies Hebrew Benevolent Society, Herzl Dispensary and Hospital, the Montreal Hebrew Orphans’ Home, the Montreal Hebrew Sheltering Home, the Ladies Jewish Endeavour Sewing Society, the Young Women’s Hebrew Association, the Beth Israel Day Nursery and Infants’ Home, the Hebrew Ladies Aid Society and the Friendly League of Jewish Women. That first campaign raised $127,000 for support of agencies and community work. In 1951, the name was changed to Federation of Jewish Community Services and then again, in 1965, to Allied Jewish Community Services. The current incarnation of FEDERATION CJA occurred in 1992. Currently, FEDERATION CJA acts as the “central funding, planning, and coordinating body of services for the nearly 93,000 Jews in Montreal and is the one organization that speaks on behalf of the entire community.” Each year FEDERATION CJA raises funds for its various agencies, projects and the community through Combined Jewish Appeal. Today FEDERATION CJA has twelve constituent agencies (Agence Ometz, Bronfman Jewish Education Centre, Bronfman Israel Experience Centre, Camp B'nai Brith, Communaute sepharade unifee du Quebec, Cummings Jewish Centre for Seniors, Hillel Montreal, JEM Workshop Inc., the Jewish Public Library, the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre, the Segal Centre for Performing Arts, and the YM-YWHA Montreal Jewish Community Centre), four funded associated communal organizations (Quebec Jewish Congress - A division of Canadian Jewish Congress, Project Genesis, Quebec-Israel Committee, and United Israel Appeal of Federations Canada, as well as non-funded associated ties with the Jewish Community Council of Montreal, the Synagogue Council of Greater Montreal, and the Jewish Community Foundation of Montreal.

Custodial History
The Jewish Public Library has been accepting and preserving material from Federation CJA and the organizations that preceded it since 1917.
Arrangement
This Collection is arranged under the current name of "Federation CJA" but includes material created under former organizational names: Federation of Jewish Philanthropies, Federation of Jewish Community Services and Allied Jewish Community Services. Series III, Campaign FED CJA, is an artificially created grouping, arranged by the JPL-A from material collected by the Library since 1917. New series have been added as other offices and departments of FEDERATION CJA deposit permanent archival material with the JPL-A. Individual agencies (e.g. Jewish Public Library) are not included as series within this Fonds. Instead, these agencies stand alone as individual fonds.
Access Restriction
Privacy restrictions may apply.
Finding Aid
A detailed finding aid for the Exectutive Office exists, created by the JPL-A in the early 1970's and updated in 2007 and 2013. An index for the subject files of the Marketing and Communications Department was created in 2007 and is available in the JPL-A.

History Biographical
The Jewish Stage Players began as a new theatre group in 1949. Their aims were “to provide professional instruction and direction to the group as a whole. Tuition is provided by a professional teacher director so that all may benefit from the many phases of stage production”. Their first presentation was Spring Song by Bella and Samuel Spewack in 1950 followed by The Family Upstairs by Harry Delf in 1951. W. A. (Bill) Atkinson was the Director. Without Atkinson, the Jewish Stage Players could never have put on the professional plays.

History Biographical
Ichud Habonim was founded in 1958 as an amalgamation of several different youth groups around the world that had been in existence long before. It is the largest pioneering youth movement of the Labour Zionist Movement, with its headquarters in Israel. Habonim in Canada was founded in 1935 as the youth section of Poale Zion, the Farband, and Na'amat. It promotes Hebrew language and culture, Jewish history and values, Zionism, and collective living. This is achieved through educational programming, its summer camps, and a youth workshop, where students spend a year studying and working on a kibbutz. Habonim established over twenty kibbutzim in Israel, and its members have participated in such diverse activities as smuggling arms to the Hagannah to being involved in community events such as the "March to Jerusalem."

History Biographical
Founder and director of the Tribune Juive and La Parole métèque publications, Ghila Sroka passed away in Montreal on September 26th, 2014 at the age of 64. Born in Morocco, she settled in Montreal in 1981, where she studied Comparative Literature at Université de Montréal. A journalist, editor, author, host, and avant-garde interculturalist, she defined herself as a "francophone by choice, a Jewish atheist, a leftist intellectual and polemicist, and a feminist". In 2008, magazine Châtelaine Canada named her among the 20 most impressive women on the planet Among the many influential publications put out by Les éditions de la parole métèque, are Femmes haïtiennes, paroles de négresses (1995) and Conversations avec Dany Laferrière (2010). In Tribune juive, she published interviews with a number of Haitian authors, including Gérard Étienne, Joël Des Rosiers, and René Depestre, and featured a number of fascinating profiles of topics like Léopold Sédar Senghor, and more generally, African or North African culture.Source: http://moishistoiredesnoirs.com/en/tribute-to-those-weve-lost/ghila-sroka-2/ by Maguy Métellus

Ina Fichman has made several films, including Towards a Promised Land/Vers une Terre Promise (1998), Moise, Longshots, Work, Study, & Travel and Moving Mountains (about a Yiddish theatre trip to Russia). She has also left her mark on TV, as she has worked on many children's TV shows, such as Vampire High. Her husband, Howard Goldberg, is a film producer (La Fete Production) and has worked with her on many of her films. She is a native of Montreal. Towards a Promised Land (abbrev.: TPL) : The film traces the evolution of Quebec's Jewish community within the framework of its relationship to the francophone majority. Together, leading Quebec artists, writers and cultural figures examine the elements shared by their sister communities while charting efforts at "rapprochement." The film includes footage from many Jewish community and wider community events and many rare interviews. The Jewish presence in the Gaspé (Levine family) is also documented. All of these themes are reflected in greater detail in the film footage that makes up the collection

History Biographical
The Jewish People’s Schools & Peretz Schools (JPPS) was formed through the merger of the two schools in 1971. At the time of the merger, the Jewish People’s Schools student population was 865, while the Jewish Peretz Schools was 260. The merger amalgamated all aspects of the schools including budget, finance, pensions, administration, education goals and philosophy. The union of the schools was a difficult process. One of the more pressing needs for the merger was the financial difficulties of the Jewish Peretz Schools, including the inability to honour teachers’ wages and a debt totalling $250,000. The education goals and philosophy of JPPS includes the need to instil in students the importance of a Jewish studies program (the study of Yiddish and Hebrew, and Jewish history); an attachment and a sense of responsibility to the State of Israel and its people; and a sense of general social justice. Once the schools were united, JPPS was able to pursue the goal of creating a day high school. Bialik High School was founded in 1972. In 1984, Bialik High School was moved to 6500 Kildare Road, where it is currently located. This school system as a whole is commonly known as JPPS-Bialik. By 1984, JPPS elementary consisted of two campuses: Van Horne and Cote St-Luc. In 2004, JPPS/Bialik made the controversial move to merge these two elementary campuses. The pressure to merge was partially due to an influx of immigrants from the former Soviet Union (who generally could not speak English or French), adding considerable strain to the Cote St-Luc campus. As a result, the Cote St-Luc location was closed. JPPS elementary is now located at 5170 Van Horne Avenue. That same year, the JPPS celebrated its 90th anniversary. The JPPS is funded by enrolment tuition and fees, provincial government grants, the Federation CJA, fundraising campaigns, and private contributions. Important student events organized by the JPPS consist of the JPPS Music Festival, the Concert Society’s Annual Concert, and the Bialik Festival of the Arts and the organization of student trips to Israel. JPPS also runs a Children's Centre, located at 7950 Wavell Road.
