History Biographical
The Shearith Israel Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue was founded in 1768 in Montreal by, among others, Simon Levy and Aaron Hart. Prominent members have included the families Joseph, Hays, David, Solomon and Wolff. As many of the original members (from England, Germany, and the American colonies) were descended from Spanish and Portuguese Jews, the Orthodox synagogue followed the Sepharadi customs. It was modelled on similar synagogues in London and New York. At first, a building was rented, and then a new one erected on Notre Dame in 1778. After several moves and buildings, the edifice at the present location on Lemieux Street was constructed in 1947. The famed Reverend Abraham de Sola and his son Meldola de Sola were rabbis of the synagogue in the 1800s. Members of the congregation founded the Young Men's Hebrew Benevolent Society of Montreal (later the Baron de Hirsch Institute) in the 1850s. The synagogue has a cemetery and a school and was the recipient of the first two Torah scrolls ever sent to Canada. Some of its Torah cases are over 200 years old as well. The Shearith Israel is the oldest congregation in Canada.

History Biographical
The Canadian Histadrut campaign started its activities in 1924 as an affiliate of the National Committee for Labor Israel (American Histadrut Campaign). In February 1942, the National Canadian Histadrut Convention took place in Montreal, at which time application was made for a charter from the Canadian government. In February 1943, the charter was granted. In recent years, the main objective of the Canadian Association for Labor Israel has been the raising of funds to assist Histadrut in Israel in its rehabilitation programs and the settling and integration of the newly arrived immigrants in Israel. The funds collected meet the needs of the many newcomers to Israel, from Africa, Asia and the former Soviet Union. As the majority of the immigrants to Israel since 1945 have arrived with little or no material assets, it devolves upon the people of Israel to see that they are properly received; that their medical needs are looked after; that suitable occupations and trades are found for all able-bodied males and females; that they receive the necessary training and schooling to become absorbed into the economy of the country; and that education and training be provided for growing adolescents and skilled adults. A vital component of Histadrut is the Canadian Friends of AMAL. Its sole aim is to encourage and develop vocational education in the numerous school devoted to that purpose in Israel. This is done by the raising of funds to provide scholarships for poor children. The AMAL schools, dotted throughout Israel, provide an opportunity for needy children to obtain a comprehensive vocational and high school education, whereby on graduation they are skilled in one of over one hundred different trades. The Histadrut (Israel's trade union) movement has assumed a large responsibility for housing, health, vocational training, old-age security, as well as cultural activities and the financing of industrial and agricultural developments
