History Biographical
S.L.(Shmuel Leib) Nathanson, the maternal great grandfather of donor Merle Kastner, was born in 1863 in Piatra Neamt, in the Moldavia province of Romania. He came to Canada with his wife Basie and five children in June, 1901, stopping briefly in Sydney, Nova Scotia, where S.L. left his family and travelled to Montreal, to set up his grocery business. With the help of Percy Dow of Dow Breweries and Lionel Eker of Ekers Brewery, he obtained a liquor licence for the "American Grain Distillers", later changed to "Sampson Distillers, Inc.", which provided him with the most lucrative part of his business. After the rest of his family joined him in Montreal, in 1901 he quickly established himself as an important and contributing member of the Montreal Jewish community. The grocery business S.L. Nathanson & Son, located on St. Cuthbert Street at St. Lawrence Boulevard, was registered in Montreal in 1908. Subsequently the "Distillers Distributing Co." was registered on Nov. 6, 1914, signed by SL Nathanson, and his sons Maurice and Henry Nathanson. S.L's younger son Sydney officially joined S.L. Nathanson and Sons in 1919, shortly before the partnership was dissolved in 1920. Soon after, Sydney Nathanson went on to work for the Bronfmans at Seagram's in Windsor, Ontario. Henry Nathanson and his wife Minnie, the maternal grandparents of the donor, were active members in the Montreal Jewish community and were especially supportive of Zionist causes - Hadassah, Hebrew Free Loan, among others.

History Biographical
The Jewish cemetery off of the Metcalfe highway (Gloucester Township) opened in 1893 when Abraham Sugarman, John Dover, Abraham Spector and Benjamin Silver acted as trustees for the Congregation of Adath Jeshurun for the purpose of establishing a burial ground. The grounds were enlarged in 1907 under the guidance of Abraham Kert, an Ottawa merchant, acting in trust for the Hebrew United Brethren of Ottawa (Agudath Achim). By 1942 these two congregations were joined by B'nai Jacob and Machzikei Hadas in expanding the cemetery grounds. Responsibility for the allotment and sale of plots rested with each congregation until June 2008. Maintenance, capital expenditures and supervision is undertaken jointly by the Cemetery Committee. By the early 1970's, the need for a new cemetery arose with the congregations of Young Israel and Temple Israel having no sections of their own, along with the Agudath Israel Congregation having only a few plots remaining. The Congregations of Agudath Israel, Beth Shalom, Machzikei Hadas, Temple Israel and Young Israel formed the New Jewish Community Cemetery of Ottawa, Inc. in 1976 for the purpose of developing and administering the new cemetery location in Osgoode Township. Israel Shinder, chairman, and his cemetery committee of Hy Gould, Harry Hecht, Max Sternthall and Norman Tenenbaum provided the leadership. The land was consecrated on Sunday, October 31, 1976. Separate committees operated each cemetery until 2008. Representatives of six Ottawa congregations, and the community-at-large, met in July, 2008 to officially create a new corporation to be known as The Jewish Memorial Gardens. It administers Ottawa’s two Jewish cemeteries on Bank Street and in Osgoode to facilitate funeral arrangements. The board includes three community representatives appointed by the Jewish Federation of Ottawa and one representative each from Agudath Israel, Beit Tikvah, Machzikei Hadas, Temple Israel and Young Israel. Beth Shalom is represented by three members on the board for the first five years, by two members for the next five years and then by one member in following years. In December 2008, JMG hired its first executive director, Shelley Fiennes.
