History Biographical
Rabbi Arnold Fine was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, in 1938. He met his wife Charlene (Chevy) in 1958 and they married in June, 1962. Together they had four children and several grandchildren. Rabbi "Arnie" Fine came to Ottawa from Boston in 1981 to assume the pulpit at Agudath Israel Congregation. Prior to moving to Ottawa he was the Executive Director of the Associated Synagogues of Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Board of Rabbis and Co-ordinator of the Jewish Chaplaincy Council from 1975-1980. During this time he was also a part-time Rabbi at Temple Adath Sharon in Sharon, Massachusetts. From 1966-1968, he held the position of Rabbi at the Tree of Life Synagogue, Uniontown, Pennsylvania and from 1968-1975 he was Rabbi of Beth Jacob Synagogue, Norwich Conneticut. Rabbi Fine received his Rabbinic degree from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in 1966. He also studied at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Ten years after arriving in Ottawa, Rabbi Fine was the Jewish National Fund's honouree for the Negev Dinner Campaign. The Ottawa Road running through JNF's Jerusalem Forest was built and dedicated in honour of Rabbi Fine. Rabbi Fine was honoured for his work with State of Israel Bonds in 2003. He has also served on several committees of the Jewish Community Council including chair of the Panel on Jewish Education and the Scholarship for Israel Trip for Teenagers, Vaad HaKashrut, Community Relations and others. Rabbi Fine was co-founder and co-chair of the Ottawa Jewish Christian Dialogue. He is a long-time participant in Christian-Jewish and Muslim-Jewish Dialogue. When he first moved to Ottawa, Rabbi Fine was shocked to discover that no dialogue existed with other religious communities in the City. Rabbi Fine co-produced and co-hosted 'Focus Religion', a radio program that ran for seven years in Ottawa. He has led several missions to Israel and is affiliated with the National Board of Mercaz Canada and the American Zionist Federation. A tribute dinner was held for Rabbi Arnold Fine upon his retirement. The event took place on May 16th, 2004 at Agudath Israel to mark the many contributions to the congregation and the Ottawa Jewish Community over his 23 years of service. Funds raised at the dinner were designated for new synagogue projects and programs for youth and education; two causes particularly important to Rabbi Fine. Rabbi Fine was appointed Rabbi Emeritus in 2004. A CD containing 315 photographs from the event is stored in Multimedia Box 1.

Personal records of Rabbi Fine's were transferred from his home in early 2009 by Estelle Gunner.
