History Biographical
M. Caplan Furs was established in 1919 by Meyer Caplan (b. unknown - d. August 5, 1968). The store was located at 178 Sparks Street and later moved to Bank Street. His son, John (b. unknown - d. March 26, 2000) entered the business in 1946 after earning a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Queen’s University. The store closed in 1990 due to decreases busineess as a result of what John Caplan described as the "pressure placed on the industry by the environmental lobby”. Five sales staff and five trades workers from the store’s small factory were put out of work. Pat Flesher Furs picked up the after-sales services, storage, and insurance services of Caplan furs.

History Biographical
Max Shenkman came to Canada in 1892. With little knowledge of English he found work assisting in the construction of the inter-provincial bridge spanning Ottawa to Hull (now Gatineau). He turned to peddling with a horse and wagon for his livelihood until he secured a job with the public works department in 1910. Max married Dora Slack in 1905. Dora played a strong and active role in the small Jewish community. She was an ardent worker and a founding member of Hadassah, B'nai B'rith, and the Sisterhood of the Adath Jeshurun Congregation. Max was also an active member of the community. Max died February 12, 1941. Max and Dora raised four sons; Benjamin Paul, Samuel, Abraham Irving and Harold Joe. The youngest, Harold (Joe) served with the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II. He worked with the department of Agriculture for 33 years. He met Belle Gubler, a pianist, during a recital at Chateau Laurier and they married in 1949. They had two children together, son William and daughter Dasha. Joe and Belle divorced in 1960 and Joe then married Louise Popplau. In 1975 he retired to his country home on the Rideau River. Joe and his brothers attended Lisgar Collegiate and in 1993, in their memory, Joe established the Shenkman Award for Business Studies. He also created the Max and Dora Shenkman Memorial Fund, the Abraham Irving Shenkman Yiddish Scholarship Fund and the Ottawa Historical Society Fund. Joe was fond of and donated generously to the YM-YWCA and the Boys and Girls Club. "He was a very quiet person, a lot of his donations were anonymous," said his son William. Joe was a real estate magnate, earning a multi-million dollar fortune. He died March 15, 1998.

History Biographical
Wolf Abelson married Julia Rosenblum of Toronto and settled in Ottawa in the early 1900's. Both were born in Lithuania. Prior to settling in Ottawa, Wolf lived in Syracuse, New York, and in Cleveland, Ohio. Wolf grew up in Neinstadt, a toen near Kovno, Lithuania. According to the Abelson family, Moses Bilsky, the first known Jewish settler in Ottawa, came from the same area in Lituania and encouraged Wolf to also settle in Ottawa. Wolf established the Rideau House Furnishing Company at 180 Rideau Street. He and wife Julia had seven children; sons Jess, Nathan and Sidney and four daughters, Birdie, Helen, Sarah and Sally. The Abelsons were members of the Adath Jeshurun Congregation and Wolf Abelson served as congregation vice-president during A. J. Freiman’s tenure as president between 1904 to 1930. Jess Abelson (1892-1975), born in Cleveland, Ohio, was an outstanding sportsman. He played football in 1913 - 1914 for the Ottawa Rough Riders and played basketball with the Y.M.C.A. He was also a member of the 1913 Canadian Champion War Canoe Team. In 1920, he became the first scoutmaster of the 39th Jewish Boy Scout Troop, one of the first Jewish scout troops in Canada. In 1920 Jess married Mollie Gray from New York. Their children included Sylvia, Lawrence, Stan, Alan (b. August 27, 1928) and Bobby. Jess was a top salesman with the Northern Life Assurance Company and in later years he was active in curling and was the founder of the Tel Aviv Tennis Club. In 1986, Jess Abelson was the first person inducted into the Ottawa Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. His influence on Ottawa and on the Ottawa Jewish community extended well beyond sports, but as a sports personality he was a paragon of excellence for young Jewish athletes. All of Jess Abelsons sons excelled in sports. Tragically, Flying Officer Lawrence "Duke" Abelson died in a training flight in England November 15, 1943 while serving in World War II. Duke went overseas in the fall of 1942 and with R.C.A.F. Mosquito Squadron. Alan became a lawyer, and lives and works in Ottawa.

Five years after their arrival, Nathan Hochberg passed away suddenly, leaving Abe along with his mother, and siblings Hy Hochberg (b. 1923- d. 1985) and Rose (m. Harry Goldberg) to fend for themselves and to tend the family's small lunch counter on Nicholas Street. As a teenager in the 1940's Abe became involved with the 39th Jewish Scout Troop (later renamed the 39th Henry Hank Torontow Scout Troop). Too young to enlist in World War II, he amassed 300 War Hours and more Proficiency Badges than any other of his fellow scouts. From the scouts he joined the Macabee Air Cadet Squadron. and later in the 1940's became a Scout Leader. In 1954, Abe took on the role of Director of the Sunday morning services for the Hanoar Breakfast Club. Abe was first employed by Joe Feller where he first got his start in the tailoring business. Abe went on to open his own men's tailoring shop named Gentleman's Fine Apparel, which was located at 204 Rideau Street.

History Biographical
During the early 1930s, synagogues in Ottawa were having difficulty retaining the services of rabbis due to financial challenges facing the congregations. As a result, a committee known as the Associated Synagogues of Ottawa was formed with the purpose of hiring a community rabbi to act as the spiritual leader for the entire Jewish community. At the time, the Jewish community was exclusively Orthodox and numbered approximately 2,800 people. Early in 1933, after several months of negotiations, each of the four congregations; Agudath Achim Congregation (Rideau Street), Machzikei Hadas Congregation (Murray Street), B’nai Jacob Congregation (James Street) and Congregation of Adath Jeshurun (King Edward Street), agreed to pay a proportionate amount of the rabbi’s salary of $2500.00 per year. Rabbi Rev. Abraham H. Freedman was the Associated Synagogues of Ottawa’s first appointment and became Ottawa’s first Community Rabbi. Proportionate payment continued to be the standard working formula for the next 20 years for employing five different, “community” or “city” rabbis. With the successful engagement of Rabbi Freedman, the next logical step for the community was the formation of a community council, or Vaad Ha’Ir. Mr. Casper Caplan put forth this motion during a meeting of the Associated Synagogues of Ottawa on August 28, 1933, where he is quoted as having proposed that “the executives of the Associated Synagogues of Ottawa recommend that a Vaad Ha’Ir of twenty-six members be appointed by the Congregations ... and that this body administer the various branches of Jewish activities in the city, principally Kashrut, Jewish education and spiritual guidance, with powers to act for the Congregations in the advancement of Judaism in our city”. The Associated Synagogues were then organized into the Ottawa Vaad Ha’Ir in 1934.
