History Biographical
Sarah Mindes (nee Bernstein) was born in Sheta, Lithuania in 1904. She married David Mindes, a fellow graduate of the Jewish Teachers College in Kaunas, Lithuania and both of them taught school in a small town called Malat for several years where their daughter, Evelyn, was born. The family emigrated to Canada in 1930 and settled in Montreal, while David went to Winnipeg to fulfil a 2-year contract he had made to teach in one of its Yiddish schools before returning to Montreal. In the meantime, Sarah worked in a dress factory as a sewing-machine operator. In 1941, David and Sarah opened a grocery store on Park Ave. in Montreal until they retired. Sarah Mindes began keeping a diary at the age of 15 and did so until she died at age 71, in 1975. Her early entries were written in Russian and Hebrew but soon thereafter she changed to Yiddish. She was an avid reader, an avid notetaker, an active attender at lectures and Montreal's reading circles, and an active participant in giving lectures to a variety of groups. In 1974, one year before she died, she was honoured at a formal dinner, and with a plaque for her contribution to Yiddish culture by the Montreal Chapter of the Yikuf, by the Mendele and Sholem Aleichem Layen Krisens and by the Montreal Culture and Reading Circles.

History Biographical
The Ottawa Torah Institute (OTI) is the Ottawa Jewish community high school for boys providing advanced studies in Tanakh, Talmud and Halakha as well as the full Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum for Grades 9 to 12. Founded in 1982, it was Ottawa’s first full-time Jewish high school. In 2001, the Fraser Institute of Canada ranked OTI as the number one high school in the Province of Ontario. The yeshiva is headed by the Israel born HaRav Eliezer Ben-Porat, shlita, who holds several rabbinical ordinations and has authored a number of Hebraic books and articles. He was a commander in the Israel Defence Forces during the Yom Kippur War. The assistant Judaic Principal is Rabbi Dovid Boruch Clinton. Machon Sarah High School was established in 1990, in honour of Sarah Schenirer who pioneered higher Jewish education for young women. It operates at a separate campus while sharing OTI’s teaching staff. Based on the model of the Bais Yaakov schools, the curriculum provides an in depth study of Humash, Navi, Hebrew, Jewish history, laws and customs, coupled with the Grades 9-12 curriculum of the Ontario Ministry of Education.
