History Biographical
The Jewish Community Foundation (JCF) of Greater Montreal was incorporated on June 11, 1971 under the leadership of Arthur Pascal, C.M. along with a group of concerned community members. The initial purpose of the JCF was to establish a contingency fund in the case of emergencies. The interest from the resulting endowment fund was to cover new programs necessary to the promotion and preservation of Jewish Montreal. Initially fundraising for the fund focused on receipt of endowments, bequests and planned giving programs. Today the JCF is a leader in designed donor directed planned giving, a successful marriage for both the donor and the community. Through its funds the JCF supports a large number of diverse programs and institutions including the Jewish General Hospital Foundation, the Canadian Jewish Congress Charities Committee National Archives and the Jewish Public Library Archives, Klez Kanada, the David Suzuki Foundation, FEDERATION CJA, Communaute Sepharade Unifee du Quebec, Dans La Rue, Jewish Montreal schools, religious programs and synagogues, and so on. At its September 13, 2012 Annual General Meeting, the JCF produced a special exhibit celebrating its 40th anniversary. A complete history of the JCF can be found on its organizational website.

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
The Canada-Israel Committee (CIC) is the official representative of the organized Canadian Jewish community on matters pertaining to Canada-Israel relations. CIC is an agency funded by the Canadian Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy, the advocacy arm of United Israel Appeal Canada (UIAC).The CIC is devoted to the promotion of increased understanding between the peoples of Canada and Israel. It is a non-partisan, voluntary, non-profit organization that enjoys the support of Canadians from all walks of life. In seeking to enhance Canada-Israel friendship, the CIC liaises with government, media, business and the academic sector, often submitting briefs and providing background analyses on matters of public policy. In addition, it sponsors seminars, conferences and other types of educational programming in Canada, and organizes study missions to Israel and the Palestinian areas. (from thier website: http://www.cicweb.ca/aboutcic/mission.cfm)Donated with the permission of the original donor, Annie Elliott, Canadian Christian representative of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus. Elliott lives in Ottawa. Founded three years ago by the Israeli parliament, the caucus' mission is to open a direct line of communication and build co-operation with Christian leaders around the world. According to the Knesset website, the caucus condemns and refuses alliances with any groups that seek to convert Jews to Christianity. Elliott said her interest in the welfare of Israel and Jews began after reading the book None is Too Many, an indictment of Canada's refusal to admit significant numbers of Jewish refugees during World War II. In 1999, she was among 2,300 Christians who gathered in Winnipeg to repent for "the church's silence and sin of anti-Semitism" during that period. The following year she was among those Christians who invited the remaining survivors of the St. Louis, the ship that was turned back from Canada to Germany during the Holocaust, to come to Ottawa as a way of apologizing.

History Biographical
The Ottawa Jewish Community Endowment and Bequest Foundation was formed in 1971 to provide a financial resource to maintain the fiscal structure of the community and at the same time to perpetuate the name of a person, persons or a family. The Foundation began to function in 1974. The name changed in 1982 to the Ottawa Jewish Community Foundation. In 1995, Orly Buzelan was hired as the Foundation's first Executive Director taking over from Casey Swedlove who served in a volunteer capacity. Alex Betcherman, Hy Joseph Harris, David Loeb, Samuel Taller, Hy Bessin, Norman Zagerman, Gilbert Greenberg, Joseph Harold Shenkman, Abraham Palmer, Bernard Shinder and Hy Soloway were the original applicants for the charter and were the first directors. Gilbert Greenberg was the first president. In the spring of 1996, the Foundation Board adoped a mission statement and soon an Audit/Finance Committee was established along with policy guidelines for gift planning and investment. The first endowment was $100,000 from the late Michael Freedman, followed by Harold Shenkman, Harold Flagal, Philip Cohen, David Zbar, Louis Greenberg and Mrs. Bess (Moe) Greenberg. The Ottawa Jewish Community Endowment Campaign is a partnership of the Foundation and the Jewish Community Council of Ottawa. The goal of the M'Dor L’Dor Campaign was to realize $40 million for Ottawa Jewish culture, the elderly, education and the needy. Marty Davis was the Director of the 2004-2005 campaign. Jack Silverstein served as UJA Executive Director (2005 - 2010). In 2011, Rony Podolsky became the Director of the Annual Campaign.

History Biographical
B'nai Brith Hillel Foundation is a North American organization that uses professional direction to provide an infrastructure for Jewish student activities at universities and colleges. It was originally founded at the University of Ilinois in 1923. The Mount Royal Lodge of B'nai Brith in Montreal established the Hillel Foundation at McGill University in 1944. Previous to this, there had been Jewish organizations at McGill University campus since 1906, such as the Maccabean Student Society. The first meetings were held at the Spanish and Portugeuse Synagogue. In 1945 B'nai Brith purchased a house at 3460 Stanley that has been used as the Hillel House ever since.Activities have been diverse. Cultural activities have included lecture series on religious, literary and historical aspects of Judaism by both local Jewish leaders and by speakers of international repute, such as Emile Fackenheim, and performances by Jewish musicians and the like. Student-run newspapers, drama groups, radio stations, choirs have also been part of Hillel's repertoire. McGill Hillel took initiative on behalf of distressed Jewry: The Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry (SSSJ) was founded in 1969, and the Hillel Task Force for Ethiopian Jewry began in 1978. Students have also shown support of Israel through groups such as the Student Zionist Organization (SZO), ITZVA, the participation of students in arranging exhibits and information tables on Israel, and the invitation of guest speakers on Israel and the Middle East. In 1961, Hillel hosted the internationally reported debate between historian Arnold Toynbee and Israel's ambassador to Ottawa, Yaacov D. Herzog on Israel's treatment of the Palestinians. There have also been awards given to students to study in Israel. Hillel students have participated in community events such as AJCS fundraising. Hillel has also addressed the needs of religious students either through organizations under its auspices like Yavneh and through direct involvement. For example, in the 1950s and 1960s, kosher-for-Passover meals were made available for out-of-town students and the rescheduling and proctoring of exams on the Sabbath were carried out by the director on behalf of its students. Hillel has also been involved in other issues affecting Jews, be it the creation of the cult project in response to the threat of Jews joining cults in the late 1970s, the awarding of student loans and the ongoing efforts to fight antisemitism, and Arab propaganda on campus. Social events have included coffee houses, dances, conventions, retreats and shabbatonim (Friday-Saturday seminars). McGill Hillel has often worked in cooperation with other Hillel groups such as those at Concordia University, various CEGEPs and Centre Hillel. The first appointments of directors of Hillel were short lived: Rabbi Benjamin Kahn was succeeded by Rabbi Avram Saltes within the first few years. From 1947-1967, Rabbi Samuel Cass was a director who left a strong imprint. In 1968, Herb Weinstein was appointed as the first non-rabbinical director, working until his death in 1987. From 1988-1996, Mark Zarecki assumed office. He was followed by Steve Spodek.The incorporated name for the organization is B'nai Brith Hillel Foundation. Over time, slight variations in the name occurred: Hillel Student Society, Hillel Jewish Student Centres, etc.The information in this collection constitutes a valuable resource for studies on Jewish social history and in particular the history of Jewish students on the Canadian campus
Custodial History
The fonds was donated on October 12, 2000 by Simon Bensimon, Hillel Director.

History Biographical
The Federation (or Farband) of Polish Jews of Canada was established in 1933 in Montreal, across Canada, and in other Western nations. Together with its women's auxiliary, "Ezra", its main efforts were war-related. Before World War II, funds were raised for general aid to Poland's Jews. During and after the war, the Federation sent money and clothing to refugees, brought war orphans to Canada, monitored Canadians' Polish relatives, searched for such relatives (with Canadian Jewish Congress, the Joint Distribution Committee and ORT), tried to save intellectuals and rabbis, and cared for refugee children. Immigrants were helped to integrate, and those Jews interned in Canada by the British were also supported. A flow of information was maintained through ties with international organizations and the Polish consulates and government. The Federation also established a Moess Chittin Fund.

History Biographical
The economic doctrine of Social Credit was developed by C.H. Douglas, of England in the 1920s. He believed in the distribution of money (or "social credit") to provide the populace with adequate purchasing power, resulting in a stronger economy. His policies became popular only in Canada, when evangelist W. Aberhart began promoting them on his radio show in 1932. By 1935 the Social Credit Party was in power in Alberta, and remained until 1971, ironically by employing very conservative economic policies (and the province's massive oil revenues). W.A.C. Bennett used similar tactics when he became premier of British Columbia in 1952. The party was also popular in Quebec in the 1950s and 1960s under Côté-Mercier and Even, and later Caouette, and the Federal party did well in Alberta. At first, the Social Credit was often openly anti-Semitic, describing a world economic conspiracy involving such families as the Rothschilds, or "International Communism, Socialism, High Finance and Political Zionism." However, after a split in the party, the anti-Semitic elements were curbed, and Quebec members who continued to promulgate them were shunned. The party declined over the decades, until it partly disbanded in 1980, ceasing to be a viable political force. Even where the name is still used, Social Credit policies are not.
