Notes
1. The following is a transcript from an interview Moses Cardash did with a veteran's website called The Memory Project in 2011 - http://www.thememoryproject.com/stories/2207:moses-cardash/ "My father was in the First World War and he was in the Russian Army. He was a prisoner in Germany and he came all the way back to Russia, to his hometown. And my sister was born in Russia, Bessie. And the Russians came into the town, you know, the Red Bolsheviks, you know. And they came in, they saw my father with his boots and he took up the tailor trade and he wore a nice [indicating suit]. They said, “Are you with us or against us?” And my father was there with the guns, you know, says “I’m with you.” So he says, “Alright, take your jacket off and take off your boots.” And the guy put them on and he [Moses' father] says, “But I’m with you.” But the other guy says, “I’m here longer than you are, I needed a pair of shoes, boots.” And I liked the [Royal Canadian] Air Force because I knew the air force procedure. I liked the uniform, I liked the outfit they used to come in in the morning, they had a parade there. Everybody was in uniform. Some of my friends were joining up. And I went down on Queen Street [in Ottawa], they had the recruitment. It was a nice little building that just made on Queen Street and you come in there and the doctor would examine you and give you an eye test and he’d check your eyes. He says, go down to the exhibition on Bank Street and the army was there. And you walk in there and there was, like the cattle used to be there before, you know what I mean, and there was a place where you sat down but when you went to the RCAF recruiting centre, it was all modern. There was a general from the first contingent and they needed men and he says, “What do you see?” I said, “I see the big E blurred.” He says, “Take your glasses off, what do you see?” I said, “I don’t see anything.” He says, “Put your glasses on and read the article.” And I read the last line, “Made in Canada,” yeah. He says, “Your eyesight is good, report Monday morning” – this was on a Friday – “report Monday morning at the Ottawa station, you’re going to Toronto, you’re going into the army.” Listen, I ate, it was strictly kosher when I came from this. It was the first time I was ever away from home. When I went to the Jackson building, that was the first time I had toast and coffee and I used to eat in the morning. I used to go downstairs and get the breakfast for the girls." 2. Moe's obituary: "Peacefully at Perley & Rideau Veteran's Centre, on Thursday, November 8th, 2012 at the age of 89. Beloved brother of Bessie C. Lewis (Phillip), Lillian Cardash and the late Rabbi Dr. Yehuda Cardash (Esther). Loving son of the late Littman and Kayla Cardash. Devoted uncle of Marshall, Bruce and Zev Lewis and Aaron, Berish and Dina Cardash. Loyal and caring friend of Martin (Moishe Avraham) Vaillancourt. A Graveside Service will be held at the Jewish Memorial Gardens, 2692 Bank Street, Ottawa on Friday, November 9th at 1 p.m. Shiva to be observed at 44-450 Daly Ave. from Sunday to Wednesday from 2 to 5 p.m. Moe was a dedicated and proud member of Beth Shalom Congregation." 3. The Cardash, Kardish and Cardish families are all related, and stems from brothers immigrating at different times and receiving different spellings of their last names upon arrival. Yehuda was also known as Eddie Cardash.

History Biographical
Benjamin (Ben) Simon Edelson (b. March 27, 1889 - d. October 12, 1988) and his wife Alice Coblentz (b. October 15, 1891, Lithuania - d. December 28, 1972, Ottawa) first visited Ottawa from Montreal in 1920 and soon after decided to move to the city. They had relocated from New York City to Montreal in 1906 and were married in 1912. Ben was a watchmaker and opened a Jewelry shop in Ottawa. Edelson's jewelry shop was first located at 588 Sussex Street, then 24 Rideau Street and finally 379 Dalhousie Street. Ben and Alice had seven children: Samuel (b. December 7, 1913 - d. October 15, 2004), Dina (b. July 27, 1915 - d. died on October 24, 2010), Lillian (Kaztnelson) (b. January 27, 1917), Vivian (Caplan) (b. July 27, 1919 - d. March 16, 2012), Jack (b. March 21, 1924), Joyce (Aiken) (b. June 13, 1926), and Elihu (b. June 14, 1927). In 1931 the family became engulfed in controversy as Benjamin was charged with the murder of fellow jeweler, Jack Horowitz. Ben had been aware that for some time Alice and Jack had been carrying on an affair, then an anonymous phone call prompted a confrontation in Edelson’s store in which Jack was fatally wounded by a gunb shot to the abdomen. Ben was acquitted of the charges and the whole affair was rarely spoken of again. The incident received much attention in the media of the day but subsequently was subject to "collective forgetting" by Ottawa's Jewish Community. The case became the subject of Monda Halpern’s book “Alice and Shanehland” published in June 2015. Alice Edelson was a member of the Agudath Israel Sisterhood and an active participant in Hadassah- Wizo Canada. Alice was active in the State of Israel Bonds campaign during the late 1950's and 1960's. She organized a special Bar Mitzvah Year celebration in 1961 for the Ottawa Committee in which girls and boys were encouraged to invest money they received to be invested in State of Israel Bonds. Alice was also a registered shareholder with the Hadassah-Wizo Organization of Canada, Cancer Research Foundation. Alice died on December 28, 1972 at the age of 81. The eldest of the Edelson children, Samuel, married Rose Manheim (b. December 25, 1916 - d. February 21, 2005) on March 26, 1938. Sam and Rose had three children; Elihu Philip (b. March 6, 1939), Joel Norman (b. February 4, 1941), Michael David (b. November 16, 1949). Samuel was a member of the Camera Club of Ottawa from 1940-1947. Their son Michael is high profile a criminal defense attorney in Ottawa and works at the firm of Edelson, Clifford, d’Angelo. Ben’s daughter Dina took over the Jewelry business in 1967. Edelson’s were in business for 83 years. Dina was a keen tennis player, winning a 1949 Championship at the Tel Aviv Tennis Club. She was also well known for her dogs, at one time owning the 1979 Canadian Champion Pomroth Edelson Diamond. Dina was a vocal opponent of the drive to construct the Rideau Centre and glass covered bus mall throughout the 1970’s and early 1980’s. Dina never married and had no children. Lillian Edelson married Dr. Harry Katznelson (b. November 7, 1917 - d. February 10, 1965) on March 26, 1938. They had one child, Carla Jan Katznelson (b. September 14, 1943). Vivian married Donald Peter Caplan (b. September 23, 1917 - d. November 26, 2007) on October 3, 1941. Vivian and Donald had two children; Jean Ruth (b. January 12, 1944) and Susan Paula (June 30, 1946). Jack Edelson graduated from the Ottawa Technical Institute Secondary School. Jack joined the Air Force at the age of 19 and served in World War II. After the war Jack owned and operated Jack Edelson Catering which served both the Jewish and non-Jewish community. Yom Tov Catering was operated by Jack under his catering company to cater kosher events. In 1995 Jack’s catering company faced controversy after non-kosher food was served at a kosher event; this resulted in a brief suspension by the Vaad Ha’ir. Jack married Freda Davis (b. August 20, 1926 - d. October 16, 1976) on December 25, 1949. Jack and Freda had one daughter, Natalie Dana (b. May 9, 1990). After Freda’s death, Jack married Annette Davis (b. July 6, 1938) on August 11, 1984. Joyce Edelson married Hank Aiken on October 19, 1947. The youngest Edelson child, Elihu, graduated from Ottawa Technical High School majoring in drafting. Elihu worked at Rideau Aluminum before opening up his own workshop. Elihu married Helen Wiseman (b. July 5, 1937) on October 7, 1956. Elihu and Helen’s marriage was the first to be performed in the new Congregation Beth Shalom Synagogue. After closing his workshop, Elihu became a Real Estate agent working first for Rhodes Real Estate and then for Harry Froman Real Estate. From 1973 until his retirement in 1985, Elihu worked for the National Capital Commission.
