History Biographical
The Young Men’s Hebrew Association (YMHA) and the Young Women’s Hebrew Association (YWHA) were both founded in 1910 to serve the “social, cultural, recreational, physical and intellectual needs” of the Jewish community in Montreal, to quote the Y’s Mission Statement. This community centre has had many locations over the years, including buildings on St. Urbain, Mount Royal and the current location on Westbury Avenue, also known as the Snowdon Y. A second location was opened in Pierrefonds to serve members living in the West Island area. The YMHA and YWHA were amalgamated in 1950 when the new branch opened on Westbury. The YM-YWHA as a recreational organization offers diverse programming and facilities including gyms, a swimming pool, and sports such as wrestling, tennis and baseball. The YM-YWHA also offered musical programs, such as the singing Minstrels and an orchestra, as well as clubs, such as the Duplicate Bridge Club and Public Speaking Club. Tournaments were frequently put on during the Y’s history both for clubs and sporting events. Several education initiatives have taken place as well, including an Evening High School, Friday night lectures for adults and the participation of Montreal Jewish literary legends such as A.M. Klein, who gave lectures and presentations to Y members. Summer day camps have also been an integral part of the Y’s programming, including the popular Y Urban Camp, which began during the 1930s. Over the past 100 years the Y has served as a gathering place for the Montreal Jewish Community, meeting the needs of their members from all walks of life, whether it is immigrants, working-class citizens, or professionals.

Notes
Woven wool blanket with 3 raw fringed edges and 1 finished edge. The wool is different shades of grey (with some black) , giving the blanket a speckled look. Narrative: One of two blankets distributed to the donor, Marcel Tenenbaum, and his parents, by German guards. Blankets were given to inmates of Malines (Mechelen), a Belgian transit camp for Jews awaiting deportation to camps further east. The Tenenbaums had lived in Brussels since 1935, the year Marcel was born. They went into hiding in 1942, in the attic of a building belonging to the former employer of Marcel's father. In 1944, they were denounced and arrested. They were taken to Malines, but arrived after the last transport to Poland had left. The guards fled, asking the imprisoned Jews to tell the Allies that they had been well treated. The camp was liberated by British forces in September 1944, and the family returned to Brussels. They immigrated to Canada in 1951.
