History Biographical
ORT (initials of Russian Obshchestvo Rasprostraneniya Truda Sredi Yevreyev), the Organization for Rehabilitation through Training, was founded in Russia in 1880 to promote vocational training of trades and agriculture among impoverished Jews. Now it is dedicated to filling the skills-training needs of Jewish people throughout the world. Canadian ORT’s primary objective is to promote vocational training, both technical and agricultural, for children and adults in the Canadian ORT schools in Israel. Ottawa Women’s ORT was founded in 1948. First executive consisted of Mrs. A.M. Goldman, Chairman, Mrs. Myer Dunsiger, Recording Secretary, Mrs. A.R. Millar, Corresponding Secretary, Mrs. Sam Greenberg, Treasurer. The Ottawa region consists of chapters, each geared to satisfy a range of interests and more or less different age groups. Numbers for each chapters were replaced by names, such as Shalom, the most senior chapter, Eilat, Eretz, Kadimah and Chaverot for young participants. Regional board meetings are held monthly, September to June, and chapters meet bi-monthly. National conferences are held biennially. Each year the Ottawa region organizes a closing and awards evening. Ottawa chapters raise funds in a variety of ways. Bingo, children’s fashion show, bazaars, bake sales and rummage sales gave way to teas, Mother’s Day Brunch and publication of calendar year book, book sale, Christmas gift wrapping at a major shopping centre, sale of entertainment books etc.

History Biographical
The first issue of the Ottawa Jewish Bulletin was published on October 22, 1937. In its early days, the Bulletin was a four page publication published every Friday and roughly 800 copies were mailed out to the Jewish community which numbered approximately 3500 people. The paper became the voice of the Ottawa Vaad Ha'Ir and the community's leaders and organizations, and was sponsored and produced by the Ottawa Vaad Ha’Ir. For its first 43 years, the Ottawa Jewish Bulletin was free of charge and mailed to local households with the help of students of the local "cheder" who helped address envelopes. Initially the paper was put together by Harry Goldman, the first Ottawa Vaad Ha'Ir secretary with community Rabbi William Margolis and founding editor Myer K. Epstein. Subsequently, local Rabbis Oscar Fasman and Simon Eckstein and Hy Hochberg, the first Executive Director of the Ottawa Vaad Ha'Ir, worked in editorial capacities into the early 1970's. In 1974, Joseph Peimer was hired as the Bulletin's first professional editor. That same year, the Bulletin merged with the Ottawa Jewish Digest and Review, a publication of Congregation Young Israel of Ottawa and was renamed the Ottawa Jewish Bulletin and Review. Prior to this merger, the Ottawa Jewish Bulletin focused “on local Jewish news while the Digest and Review concentrated on Israeli and world Jewish news.” In 1993, the paper reverted to its original name; Ottawa Jewish Bulletin. Bulletin editors include: Gaye Applebaum (1976-1977), Nancy Zalman (1978-1979), and Jeff Bien (1979-1980), Cynthia Engle (1980-1992), Myra Aronson (1992-2001), Barry Fishman (2001-2008), and Michael Regenstreif, who began as assistant editor in 2007 and took over as editor in 2008. In 1995 the Bulletin took a big technological leap hiring Brenda Van Vliet (1995-2017) as production manager and transformed from cut and paste production to computerized layout and in-house design of ads. Patti Moran is the current production consultant for the Bulletin. The Ottawa Jewish Bulletin is a prize winning publication that has received numerous commendations including the Gold Award for best newspaper with advertisements presented by the Council of Jewish Federation in 1993. In 2017, thanks to the guiding force of Ottawa Jewish Archives archivist Saara Mortensen who secured grants from the City of Ottawa Heritage Program and the Ottawa Jewish Heritage Society, all editions of the Bulletin were digitized and made universally accessible online.
Notes
1. In 2000, the Ottawa Jewish Bulletin was digitized through an initiative of the Ottawa Jewish Historical Society from the microfilm copy. Digitization (from the originals) and online web hosting by the Internet Archive Canada will be carried out in 2016 through an initiative directed by Archivist Saara Mortensen (project funded by the City of Ottawa Heritage funding Program 2016 and the OJHS). 2. Issues are received as published and currently 19 issues are published annually. 3. Early history from L. Harry Goldman, late of Fredericton, New Brunswick interview, July, 1995. 4. 1 box (microfilm master) of OJB's from 1937 to 2000 is stored off-site with past Archivist Shirley Berman.

History Biographical
The Torah Study Group was founded in 1983 under the guidance of Dr. Gretl Keren Fischer and Adrienne Packnadal-Powell. Dr. Fischer was Chair of Temple Israel's Adult Education Program at the time and enlisted Adrienne's assistance. The first meeting was held at Dr. Fischer's home with Rabbi Sanford T. Marcus of Temple Israel, who contributed guidelines with his bibliography. The Torah Study Group was formed just as Rabbi Gunther Plaut's Commentaries on the Torah had been published. The group spent approximately 10 years studying his Commentaries. Study sessions were always informal and while the number of members fluctuated, membership was at its largest at 18 individuals. The group met every three weeks on a Sunday evening. The group also enjoyed retreats which were divided between outdoor pursuits and Torah study. Core members included Dr. Fischer, Adrienne Packnadal-Powell, Margo Borenstein, Dorothy and Murray Browns, Pearl Greenberg, Elsa and Irwin Waldman, and Teena and Walter Hendelman. As of 2008, the Torah Study Group continued to meet.

History Biographical
Beth Shalom West Congregation started as a satellite synagogue of Beth Shalom Congregation on Chapel Street to fill the need for an Orthodox synagogue in the Greenbank and Baseline area of western Ottawa. On May 3, 1980, the first West End service was led by Rabbi Basel Herring and attended by a small group of Jews in the cafeteria of Sir John A. MacDonald High School. Other functions were held in private homes or nearby public locations. As the group grew in size so did the dream of a permanent facility and on June 1982 the first plans for a building were unveiled. Along with these plans came a price tag of $674,000 and a fund raising campaign. Although the members and community were receptive, it quickly became apparent that west end community could not raise adequate funding for this structure. By November 1983, a Project Management Committee was formed with the goal of devising a building which could house the needs of the congregation and fall within financial boundaries. After considering a number of options and estimates provided by architect Joe Liff, the design of the present structure was created. A central Craig Henry site was chosen for a new synagogue on Chartwell Avenue and the property was donated by developers Jack and Irving Aaron. Over 400 people attended the ceremonial ground breaking ceremony. The dedication and official opening followed in September 1986. On June 3, 2008, the congregation gained independence and officially became Congregation Beit Tikva of Ottawa. The present sanctuary reflects the Orthodox nature of the congregation, including a women’s section defied by a raised floor and wooden Mechitzah. The memory of the Lowertown synagogues is reflected not only in the position of the central Bimah but in the inclusion of the Adath Jeshurun/ Ottawa Chrvra Kadisha’s original Aron Kodesh (Torah Arc) which was installed in February 1999. Rabbi Dr. Basil Herring served as the congregation’s first religious official; Rabbi Michael Orelowitz served from August 1982 to June 1983; Rabbi Sonnenschein joined the congregation in summer of 1983 and became the first full time rabbi in 1989. Rabbi Howard Finkelstein became the congregation’s rabbi August 8th, 1991 to remains in this position to the present day. Chazan Yair Subar is the Musical leader of Beit Tikvah of Ottawa and has been serving the congregation since June 2008.
