History Biographical
Bernard Lieff (b. unknown - d. 1941) migrated from the shtetl of Antopol, District of Grodno, Russia in 1903. “Like thousands of others, (Bernard) stole across the border into Germany... and then travelled by steerage to America.” He made his way to Kingston, Ontario, and then settled in Ottawa by 1904. After a few years peddling, Bernard Lieff became a teacher at the Ottawa Talmud Torah and also provided private tutelage. He studied at several Yeshivas in Russia and met his wife, Esther Malcah Pomerantz (b. 1881 - d. 1936), when tutoring Esther and her two younger sisters. He and Esther married in Russia in 1902. They had seven children; Abe, Louis, Bessie, Hy, Max, Morris and Joseph. All were born in Ottawa except Abe. Bernard Lieff had at least one brother, Moshe Hersh Lifshitz, who also lived in Ottawa. Bernard and his wife and children changed their surname from Lifshitz when a Lisgar Collegiate teacher shortened Abe's surname to Lieff in 1916. Rabbi Fasman delivered the eulogy for Bernard Lieff in the same classroom of the Ottawa Talmud Torah classroom, on George Street in Ottawa, in which Bernard had taught for 35 years. Meyer Lieff, a cousin, and Moses Palmer were partners in a scrap yard at corner of Sherwood and Ottawa Streets. Meyer Lieff officiated as parnass at Adath Jeshurun.

History Biographical
Dr. Bernard Norman Barwin is a Canadian gynaecologist and medical professor who was appointed into the Order of Canada in 1997 for having a “profound impact on both the biological and psycho-social aspects of women’s reproductive health.” He was removed from the Order on July 5, 2013. Barwin was born in South Africa. He attended Queen’s University in Northern Ireland to complete his Medical Degree, graduating in 1965. Though director of the High Risk Pregnancy Clinic and co-director of the Ottawa General Hospital's fertility clinic, Barwin left in 1984 because he was not a certified gynaecologist in Canada. He would then establish his own clinic, though still licenced as a general physician. He was the Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of Ottawa. He was also one of the founding members of Fertility Self-Help Group (ISSG), which later became the Infertility Awareness Association of Canada. He also founded Canadians for Choice and has been President since 2004. In addition, he was the President of the Canadian Fertility Society, the Planned Parenthood Federation of Canada and Planned Parenthood Ottawa. Despite practicing artificial insemination since 1973, he admitted to professional misconduct after four women were artificially inseminated with the wrong sperm. This would leave the offsprings unwilling ignorant of their male parentage which leaves crucial gaps in their genetic medical history. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario panel revoked his licence to practice for two months and was ruled to cover the $3,650 cost of the disciplinary proceedings. A review of the incidences could find no “evident” reasons for the error.
