History Biographical
The Ottawa Hebrew Senior Association was formed shortly after World War II to act as a social and recreational facility for the Jewish youth of Ottawa; to provide cultural and educational facilities and “to further independently the ideals of Judaism in general and the Ottawa Jewish Community in particular”. Founders included Harry Kershman, Ernest Wasserman, Beatrice Applebaum and Vera Landman. Harry Kershman was elected Chairman and Sylvia Budovsky elected Co-chairman. By 1948 most members were married and there were not enough single people to continue the organization. The Association met at Talmud Torah, George Street. Also in the vestry of Adath Jeshurun Synagogue, and $4.00 for an evening’s rental. Members danced to records. Rented a PA(public address) System and different people played their records. The Association considered a merger with the Young People's League in 1947 for the purpose of forming a single large, strong Jewish Youth organization in Ottawa. However, it was determined that the two groups appealed to two different types of members and would not benefit from a merger.
Notes
1. Zenith newsletter, 1947 and 1948 dance flyer transferred from Jewish Community Council of Ottawa fonds. 2. Other material donated by Mrs Sylvia (Harry) Kershman, August 16, 1999, March 4, 2002, Spring 2014. 3. Notes taken from Sylvia Kershman, August 16, l999: The Ottawa Hebrew Senior Assoication was a group for fun. Another group was the YPL: Young Peoples League, more of a cultural organization. The OHSAssociation was the victim of its own success, as most members got married, especially men from World War II. It was really a continuation of wartime dances and parties. The Association met at Talmud Torah, George Street. Also in the vestry of Adath Jeshurun Synagogue, and $4.00 for an evening’s rental. Members danced to records. Rented a PA(public address) System and different people played their records. Sylvia Kershman found it “a rich, Jewish social experience”. They also put on a Purim Ball and a Matzo Ball.

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.
