History Biographical
Hy Soloway was born in the Ukraine, son of Annie and Louis Soloway. The Soloways arrived in Ottawa around 1923 because an older brother, Harry, had settled here previously. He graduated with an arts degree from Queen’s University in 1936 and a law degree from Osgoode Hall Law School, Toronto in 1939. He married Ruth Speevak. After service in World War II, he established a successful law firm in Ottawa. His first partner was John Mirsky, followed by labour lawyer, Maurice Wright. Mr Soloway felt “very deeply Jewish” and contributed continuously to Ottawa’s Jewish community. He served as President of the Jewish Community Centre of Ottawa, the Jewish Community Council of Ottawa and the Beth Shalom Synagogue. In 1998, the Soloway Jewish Community Centre at 21 Nadolny Sachs Private, Ottawa was named in his honour.

Notes
1. Duration approx. 30 minutes. 2. Location: Audio Cassettes - Various fonds. 3. Summary: Mrs. Ruth Soloway (nee Spevak) speaks about her father Sam Spevak and her mother Sophie who became ill and died when Ruth was only 15. Her sister Sadie took over parenting Ruth and her younger brother Jackie. Her oldest brother Charlie moved to Detroit when Ruth was young. Her mother was preoccupied much of the time with bringing over her family from Russia. She and her husband enjoyed playing poker in one of the eight bedrooms of their large home on Daly Avenue. During the Depression years her father closed the Capital Fur & Hide company. Her sister Sadie supported the family by working for the government. Ruth worked in Sam Berger's law office and later worked at the National Film Board. She recalled that she was not allowed to play tennis at the Rideau Tennis Club because she was Jewish and that Jack Wolf and herself were the only Jewish children in her class at school. Mrs. Soloway recalled that her father was "larger than life" and "never did anything by halves". He was president of the Rideau Street shul and the Ottawa Jewish Immigrant Aid Society. Many of the immigrants that worked on the farms near Billings Bridge moved on to Detroit.
