History Biographical
The foundation for the Ottawa school was laid out in 1925 with the help of the Montreal Folk Shule and its Director, Mr. S. Weisman. Classes were first held with 25 pupils in a hall on Rideau Street. They moved later to a store on Rideau, then to larger quarters on York Street. The first teacher was Dr. M. H. Arnoni, followed by Mr. and Mrs. A. Endelman of Montreal. Additional teachers included Z. Lev and Frank Malamuth. The officers were Mr. Max Baylin, President, Daniel Green, Vice-President and Treasurer, S. Polisky (1-166), Secretary, A. Endelman, recording Secretary, Max Baylin, and Daniel Green was also a founder for the Ottawa shule. Eventually there were five grades with approximately 100 pupils, both boys and girls. The school had a difficult time as it lacked financial support by the Jewish community. It was maintained by membership fees and the yearly campaign which was generously supported by the late Archibald Freiman, who personally admired the spirit of the school and those involved in its administration. Folk Shule supporters were supporters of the radical left of socialism who desired Yiddish instruction along with Hebrew. It was a secular school where classics were read, poems recited, choirs organized and plays presented. Financial difficulties ultimately weakened the Folk Shule. In 1935 or 1936 the Ottawa Talmud Torah Board assumed the institution’s assets and liabilities together with the services of Frank Malamuth.

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.
