History Biographical
The story of Tamir begins in 1980 with Lily and Jerry Penso. The Pensos were convinced that their developmentally delayed son, Michael, who was then 19, needed his own place to live. At the time, the waiting list for ODAMR group homes in Ottawa was 100 other people. Moreover, while these homes might have provided the support that Michael needed, they did not offer the Jewish cultural environment the Pensos were seeking. The Pensos placed ads in the Ottawa Jewish Bulletin and Canadian Jewish News seeking out families of developmentally delayed adults interested in the establishment of a Jewish group home in Ottawa. There was no response. Undaunted, the Pensos made a number of personal phone calls. In October 1980, several local families, including the Pensos, met with Elaine Rabin, Executive Director, Jewish Social Services Agency, Jacquelin Holzman, with The Social Planning Council, and Noreen Bosloy, Special Needs Coordinator of the Ottawa and District Association for the Mentally Retarded (ODAMR), to discuss the need and possibility of establishing a supervised group home setting for developmentally handicapped young adults in a Jewish environment. Out-of-town institutions were also contacted for information and assistance, including Reena in Toronto and the Shalom Residence in Winnipeg. In addition to Sandy Keshen, Rabbi Kelman of Reena was very helpful and made a special trip to Ottawa to offer encouragement. This led to future meetings with the Coordinator of Services for the Developmentally Handicapped in the Ministry of Community and Social Services, then known as COMSOC. While the institutions and the Ministry were supportive, much hard work, perseverance and faith would be required before concrete results would be seen as the bureaucratic process would prove to be very slow. Two major factors would ultimately prove to be the key to Tamir’s success – the support of Jacquelin Holzman with the Social Planning Council and the backing of the Ottawa Jewish community. The first open community meeting was held in October 1981. This was well attended. Community support was strong from the beginning and continues to this day. The Foundation was incorporated in December 1981 with 18 members on the first interim Board of Directors. Mark Max prepared the original logo and information flyer. The first By-Laws were prepared with the assistance of Martin Black of Goldberg Shinder. Charitable status was granted shortly after incorporation which allowed Tamir to issue receipts for income tax purposes. An initial membership drive, held in the fall of 1981, brought in 215 members. Donor cards were introduced. Following a study of draft proposals of other similar organizations, Tamir submitted a two phase proposal to the Ministry of Community and Social Services. Rabbi Bulka helped to draft the Jewish guidelines for the proposal. The first phase called for a cooperative house for four moderately retarded trainable Jewish young adults who would share household duties and develop their individual potentials to cope with everyday life skills in a planned social atmosphere, as well as a relief bed for use in family crisis situations or to allow parents to enjoy an occasional holiday. A second larger home would accommodate six people, selected from private homes and institutions, with a greater degree of retardation, who would require more supervision. The Ministry agreed, in principle, to grant 80% of the required capital cost and operating expenses with the remainder to come from clients' pensions and community fundraising, provided that 50% of the clients came from institutions approved unanimously by the Ontario government's local Mental Retardation Advisory Committee of COMSOC. In those years, the province was planning to close several institutions in Ontario and anxious to transfer patients into community sponsored homes. Accordingly, Tamir contacted the Rideau Regional Home in Smiths Falls and determined that there were 18 Jewish residents. Tamir maintained close contact with Rideau Regional in the following years. In March 1982, Tamir's proposal was approved for future funding from the Ministry by the local Advisory Committee of COMSOC with still no indication of when the money would actually be granted. Due to cutbacks there was little likelihood of receiving funding in 1982. Through the efforts of Jacquelin Holzman, Tamir was placed on a waiting list. Tamir’s efforts continued. The homes were to be modelled after the Reena Foundation's group homes in Toronto. In addition to establishing residences, a second goal of the Foundation was to develop a self-help group to support families and to assist them to cope with the realization that they had a developmentally delayed handicapped child, to accept the limitations while recognizing the potential of the individual and to prepare for the transition from family to group home. Work continued on this initiative as well. In May 1982 Tamir was recognized as a Jewish Agency under the Vaad and received various bequests from Endowment Funds and through Jewish service organizations. While awaiting government funding, a number of Board Committees were established to work on capital and operating budgets, admission criteria, the preparation of a policy manual, homes, furnishings and future fundraising. By 1985 there was still no indication as to when government money would actually be granted and received; however, given the critical need, the Board made the decision to proceed. The support and generosity of the Ottawa Jewish community and the receipts from a successful fundraising initiative in June - $60,000 for start-up costs was raised at a L’Chaim Cocktail Party- allowed for the opening of the first group home. In 1987, a presentation was made to the Ottawa Jewish Community Council and Tamir was recognized as a beneficiary agency under the then Vaad Ha'Ir. The Vaad continued to assist Tamir until government funding was obtained in 1992. Tamir continued to receive funds through various bequests from Endowment Funds.

History Biographical
In 1905, David Mirsky, son of Ottawa's first Rabbi Jacob Mirsky, started bottling the spring water that came out of a limestone rock formation on “Nanny Goat Hill” near LeBreton Flats. From those humble beginnings a soft drink empire was started. When David was 14 he entered the workforce as a “newsie”, peddling magazines, snacks and soft drinks on the Canadian Pacific Railway’s Gatineau train. Within five years he had worked his way up to freight agent and started work in the CPR station itself. It was there in the station that David noticed the incredible volume of soft drinks being shipped from all over the country into Ottawa. He began to wonder why soft drinks couldn’t be manufactured locally. The family stories say that David began to collect glass bottles (which were quite scarce at the time) and return them to Bradings Brewery where after a time, he struck a deal with them; he was given permission to build a small shack on the grounds of the brewery on LeBreton Flats and he was also given rights to tap the spring water that ran down the escarpment on Nanny Goat Hill, near what is today Booth and Albert St. (if you look up the area on Google Maps, you will still see a green space in the area called Nanny Goat Hill Community Garden). David initially named his company “The Ottawa Bottle and Trading Co.” and his first product was simply a five gallon can of spring water. Deliveries were done by horse and wagon in the summer and by sleigh in the winter. This switched to trucks in the 1920’s. When David continued to notice the amounts of ginger ale and ginger beer being imported from England, he switched to adding flavours and carbonation to his water. It was at this point in the 1920’s that he renamed his company “Pure Spring”, the name that would endure for the next 60 odd years. His early operation was a modest one, using hand operated equipment in his own home in the evenings to create his products. Over the years, David introduced his own sons into the business; Norman Mirsky, who focused on product development (and who would become president of the company during WWII), and Mervin Mirsky, who focused on sales, merchandise and promotion. John Mirsky, the third son, worked in the business before WWII but decided to later turn to a law career (John was tragically killed in a car accident). Mervin left the business for a time to fight in Europe but upon his return a variety of expansion plans and innovative ideas were instituted. One of their greatest feats was to develop a formula that would retain carbonation in their drinks for at least 24 hours. The Mirsky’s were also credted with bringing twist caps and soda cans to North America from England. By 1969 Pure Spring had increased sales 3000% over two decades. In April 1969, the company opened a modern, one-story plant on Belfast Road in Ottawa Pure Spring products could be found in Canada from the Maritimes, to Alberta and to the Arctic Circle. Outside the country products were in the United States, West Indies, Bermuda and Dominican Republic. At its peak, it was said that Pure Spring had annual sales in the $50-million range. Their best known flavours were Ginger Ale, Honee Orange, GINI, Minted Grape and Cream Soda, but you could also get One Cal Cola, Brio Chinotti, Black Bing Cherry, Mexican Cream Soda, Spruce Beer, Strawberry, Grapefruit and Lime, and for a while, EXPO Chocolate (made especially for Expo 67). The Mirsky family eventually sold Pure Spring to Crush International, the soft-drink giant, in the mid-1960’s, though Mervin Mirsky continued to run it until about 1987.
