History Biographical
Samuel Cohen (b. 1874, Kovna, Lithuania - d. 1959, Ottawa) married Ida Berezin (b. 1876- d. 1957) in Russia ten immigrated to Ottawa ca. 1905 with their first daughter Lillian (b. April 12, 1904, Russia - d. July 16, 1979, Ottawa). They later had two more daughters, Doris and Rose, and two sons Arthur and Irving. Samuel Cohen founded the Ottawa Kosher Meat Market sometime between 1905 and 1910. His first shop was at 349 Cumberland Street, then in the Byward Market Square, and subsequently at 81A Clarence Street. He had several business partners over the years, including Joe Roodman, Max Uditsky, a Smolkin and Misha Zbar. Samuel’s daughters Rose, Doris, and Lillian did his bookkeeping. Samuel made weekly trips to local farms and his wife often accompany him. He would be up at four o’clock to drive to the farm suppliers and bring the cattle and chickens to the abattoir on Riverside Drive. He retired in 1948. Misha Zbar and his son, Benjamin continued the Kosher Meat Market business until Misha and his wife immigrated to Israel. Benjamin Zbar then became a partner of United Kosher Meat & Deli. Samuel performed the duties of mishgaich for Beth Shalom Synagogue when it first opened in 1956 - 1957. Samuel's daughter Lillian Cohen married Frank Fried in 1927. Frank Fried’s father owned a General Store in North Bay and had sent Frank to Ottawa to buy furs at Davidson’s where he met Lillian who was working as a bookkeeper. They lived in North Bay where their daughter Phyllis (Fried) Rackow was born. The General Store was lost in 1929 and the Fried's moved to Ottawa where Frank worked in security at Freiman’s Department store. In 1937 Frank moved to Toronto and worked in a wholesale vegetable business until his premature death in 1939. Lillian and Phyllis returned to Ottawa and lived with her grandparents, Samuel and Ida Cohen. Sons Arthur and Irving helped from time to time in the meat business but never worked there permanently. Arthur went into the furrier business and Irving became a salesman and later the manager of a men's wear store. Daughter Rose went to Lisgar Collegiate and followed in her sisters footsteps working as a bookkeeper for Davidsons Furs. Rose married Louis Abramowitz, and after his death she married Maxwell Kalman. Rose and Louis operated Harper’s Dress Shop at 101 Bank Street across from the Capital Theatre and then moved to Rideau Street.

History Biographical
Hy Hymes, his sister Goldie, and Goldie's husband Charlie Abramson started Kiddytown in Ottawa in 1945. From the Kiddytown website in the About Us section, titled "Our Story": "In 1945, while taking a walk on Rideau Street (at the time Main Street in downtown Ottawa), Goldie Abramson saw that Hunts Candy Shop was closing because of the sugar shortage due to the war. She knew that Ottawa was missing a store that catered to the needs of parents and kids, especially during the start of what we now know as the "Baby Boom". The idea of renting that space (all 200 square feet) and starting Ottawa’s baby store was very exiting to Goldie (better known as Mrs. A), her husband Charlie and her brother Hy (or Mr. H). So with borrowed money and an 18 month lease, they opened the doors of Kiddytown Ltd. Their dream had become a reality. Their mentality was simply: Provide Ottawa with quality kids/baby furniture and clothing, along with excellent service, and the lowest prices in the city. As Kiddytown continued to grow, expanding from one store to its peak of 6 stores across Eastern Ontario, more family joined. Currently Hy’s daughters, Goldie’s nieces, run the day-to-day operations of Kiddytown’s 3 Ottawa locations." There were three Hymes children; Hy, Goldie and Jack. Hy Hymes passed away on July 13, 2012, aged 88. Married to Dorothy Hymes. Hy and Dorothy had three children; Barbara, Beverly and Rhea. Hy and Dorothy were grandparents to Alexandra, Rebecca, Aviva, Elana, Ari, Lorne, and Noah.

History Biographical
Roger (____-1955) and Rose (____-1959) (nee Bezumny) were both born in Eastern Europe and immigrated separately to Canada in 1913. They met and married in 1915 and moved to St. Andrew St. in the Lowertown district of Ottawa, the first of several residences. Roger's original last name was Nepomiazchy but this was changed by immigration officials upon landing to the more pronounceable "Greenberg". Roger and Rose had seven children; George (1916-1918 - he died in an accident at Billings Bridge farm when he was 2), Louis (1918-1974), Jennie (1922-1991), Gilbert (1923-1980), Grace (1926-1989), Irving (1928-1991) and Lawrence (Lorry) (1933-1999). The family's first few decades were steeped in poverty. In 1955, Roger and his sons started Mercury Homes, which later was changed to The Minto Group. Lawrence left the company in 1962. Louis Greenberg married Helen and they had a son, also named Lawrence (see Lawrence Greenberg fonds for more information). Lawrence (Lorry) Greenberg went on to become the first Jewish mayor of the City of Ottawa from 1975 to 1978. He died of heart failure in 1999 at age 65. Irving Greenberg died of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 1991 at the age of 62. He and his wife Shirley had two children; Phoebe and Dan Greenberg. Gilbert and his wife Bessie had six children; Roger, Robert, Kenneth, Michael, Marion and Alan. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Article from the Ottawa Citizen: March 25, 2008 $11M Donation: The family of the late Irving Greenberg has donated $11 million to the Queensway Carleton Hospital for a Cancer Centre in the name of the Ottawa entrepreneur. The family of the late Irving Greenberg has donated $11 million to the Queensway Carleton Hospital for a Cancer Centre in the name of the Ottawa entrepreneur. Irving Greenberg, the founder of Minto Developments Inc, died in 1991 at the age of 62. The $11 million announcement — the single largest donation in the hospital's history — was made Tuesday morning by Greenberg's son, Dan, and his family. “In the year of planning the donation, close friends lost their struggles with cancer," Dan Greenberg said. "It profoundly affected my life. Without Irving’s drive and leadership, Ottawa would not be the city it is today and I would not be making this donation today." Earlier this year, the Queensway Carleton broke ground this month on a new building to house a satellite facility of the Ottawa Hospital Regional Cancer Centre. The project, which also includes renovations to the General campus of the Ottawa Hospital, will cost about $180 million. The $11 million donation, to be used to improve cancer care in the region, is the latest in a number of significant donations made by the Greenberg family. In 2004, The Great Canadian Theatre Company announced that the family made a $2.5 million donation to the theatre company's capital campaign. The company's new theatre facility at the corner of Holland and Wellington, bears the name of the Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre. Greenberg's widow, Shirley, a lawyer who opened Ottawa's first female law practice, has also made a number of large donations in recent years. In 2001, she helped fund the Shirley E. Greenberg Women's Health Centre. In 2005, she became the University of Ottawa's largest individual donor with the $3-million endowment of the Shirley E. Greenberg Chair for Women and the Legal Profession. © (c) CanWest MediaWorks Publications Inc. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ottawa Business Journal, “CEO of the Year: It’s All in the Family for Minto Chief” – October 25, 2004 Roger [Greenberg] graduated from Fisher Park High School in 1973, went to the University of Toronto for a Bachelors of Commerce and then to Osgoode Hall for his law degree.

History Biographical
Arthur Sheldon Leonoff (b. April 26, 1948) arrived in Ottawa from Winnipeg, Manitoba, in the 1970's. He is the middle son of Melvin (Mel) Leonoff and Ida (Idy) Rosenberg. He has two siblings; elder brother Lawrence (Larry) Leonoff (residing in Toronto) and younger sister Heather Leonoff (residing in Winnipeg). Arthur is married to Lynda Patricia Haddon (b. July 1, 1945). Lynda was born in London, England and came to Canada with her war-bride mother, Eileen (Terry). They were met by her father Edward (Ed) Haddon after WWII ended in Baie D'urfe, Quebec, just outside of Montreal. Edward and Eileen had four children; Lynda, Daralyn (Dari), Dayle and James (Jim). Lynda moved to Ottawa from Montreal in the 1970's. It was here she met Arthur and they married on July 1, 1979. Lynda converted to Judaism before their marriage. Arthur and Lynda had three children together; Shayna (Yaffa) Meridith Haddon Leonoff (b. October 21, 1980), and twins Emily (Bracha) Beth Haddon Leonoff and Holly (Chaya) Mychal Haddon Leonoff (b.

He opened his practice with a group of psychologists at 125 Somerset St. W. and as of 2013 he still remains there. Upon having twins in 1982, Lynda quickly realized there was a lack of information available for women regarding the birth and raising of multiples. She delved into this niche market and has become a world expert on twins, triplets and more, adding to the literature and information available, leading multiple births prenatal classes for expecting parents, and lecturing around the world. Shayna studied Theater at York University in Toronto, and moved there permanently after graduation. She works in television, production and new media. She is the head of a successful and self-created media company, Haddon Strategy. Holly first started work as a teacher, obtaining a General Arts and Education degree from the University of Winnipeg. She began teaching first in Winnipeg, and then overseas in Thailand and China in the mid 2000's. In 2012 she changed course to become a paralegal, and now works in Ottawa. Emily studied Fine Arts at the University of Ottawa in the early 2000's. Later, she obtained a diploma in Collections, Conservation and Management from Sir Sandford Fleming College in Peterborough. Finally in 2008, she obtained her masters in Paper Conservation from Queen's University in Kingston. In August of 2012 she became the Archivist and Conservator for the Ottawa Jewish Archives and she held the position until September, 2014.

History Biographical
Nathan Benditsky was born in Montreal on June 28th, 1918. He was one of six children born to Israel and Esther Benditsky who had emigrated from Russia in 1908. After beginning to work in family's textile trimmings business, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941 along with his two brothers Samuel and Rubin. Soon stationed overseas, he met Ruth Schrager and in October 1945, the two married in Manchester, England. Travelling back to Canada in 1946, Nathan Benditsky returned to the family business, Star Pleating Inc. Nathan ran the company alongisde his brother Samuel and father, Israel. The business continued into the late 1990's moving from Rue Alymer to Mount-Royal Avenue. Ruth Benditsky (nee Schrager) was born on May 10th, 1927 in Vienna. Her parents Mortiz and Rachel Schrager, and sister Mirjam Zimmerman (nee Schrager) moved to England in 1937. After marrying, Ruth Benditsky waited a number of months before recieving her travel arrangements from the Canadian Wives' Bureau. Alongside thousands of other women, she immigrated to Canada in July 1946. Numerous relationships were initiated during World War II between Canadian military personnel and citizens living in areas where the military was stationed. Though such relationships were officially discouraged by the military, many nonetheless resulted in marriage. In 1946 the majority of newly-wed women, and some men, travelled to Canada to join their partners following the war. The estimated 48,000 war brides that made the transatlantic trip represented a significant influx of new immigrants from Britian, as well as the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy and Germany. Once Ruth and Nathan Benditsky were reunited in Montreal, they worked to bring Ruth's family to North America. Moritz and Rachel Schrager, as well as Ruth's grandmother, Rivka Monath, settled in Montreal in the late 1940's. Ruth and Nathan Benditsky raised three children, Howard Benditsky, Suzan Baron and Naomi Benditsky. Ruth Benditsky died in 1980, survived by Nathan Benditsky, who died in 1999.
