LORD READING YACHT CLUB = LRYC.

Fonds
Physical Description
Env. 6 plans. - 3.6 metres of textual records. - Env. 500 photographs.
Scope and Content
The document portion of the fonds consists of historical essays, minutes, membership lists and ledgers, by-laws, rules of the Club, and correspondence (including founding documents such as letters patent and correspondence with representatives of the Duke of Edinburgh and the Canadian Federal government). Also included are documents related to negotiations about original site building and later renovations. Most of the documentary portion of the collection was preserved by Henry Vineberg in black 3-ring binders. The approximately 1550 print photos, negatives, and slides (ca. 300) in the fonds depict Club activities, boats and boating events, the Club buildings and grounds through time, and persons associated with the Club. The majority of the photos were originally arranged in albums and were inter-filed the paper based records but are now housed in two distinct photo-boxes. The plans in the fonds show renovations and locations of buildings. The fonds also includes a few personal items about Henry C. Vineberg, Club archivist and historian. Of particular interest is a framed replica of the ketuba (marriage contract) of his grandparents, dated 1863 and prepared in Montreal by Rabbi Abraham de Sola.

History Biographical
The Lord Reading Yacht Club was founded by a group of Jewish Montrealers at a time when Jews were not welcome in boating clubs around the Island of Montreal. The club founders encountered initial opposition from the City of Beaconsfield, where it was located. Henry Vineberg, long-time member and self-appointed archivist of the club, made documenting the Club's history and activities the mission of his later years. His archival collection included documents and photographs from the earliest days of the organization. The Archives of the LRYC were housed in his Snowdon-area home in Montreal until his death, in November 1999.
Custodial History
The Lord Reading Yacht Club Archives were in the possession of Club archivist and historian Henry C. Vineberg until his death in November 1999. At that time they were donated, with the permission of the Club, to CJC Archives under the authority of his executor and friend, Jack Stein

History Biographical
The Congregation Shaar Hashomayim, which is the second oldest synagogue in Canada as well as the oldest Ashkenazi synagogue, was founded in Montreal in 1846 by English, German and Polish Jews. Having been members of the Spanish and Portuguese synagogue, they decided that they wanted to be able to attend Ashkenazi services. Thus, the congregation began its life in a rented room on St. James Street, and after several moves, it obtained land at Kensington Avenue and Côte St. Antoine in Westmount in 1920. This new synagogue was completed in 1922, and the congregation has worshipped at this location ever since. Throughout its early history, the congregation continued to have ties with the Spanish and Portuguese congregation, but in 1918 the name Congregation Shaar Hashomayim was incorporated and it in turn separated from the former. After the Second World War a school was added to the congregation and because so many families had joined the synagogue it was further expanded in 1967. Though Orthodox by charter, the congregation is Conservative.Additional historical information about the Congregation can be seen in the attached PDF document (5179K.)
