History Biographical
The Baron de Hirsch Institute is the oldest, continuous Jewish social services agency in Quebec and in Canada. With the re-organization of the Hebrew Philanthropic Society, the agency began in July 1863 as the Young Men’s Hebrew Benevolent Society by a group of young unmarried men of Montreal. The organization was an expression of their belief in the ethical tradition of Mitzvah and Tzedakah, and pioneered pathways of service in social welfare. Jewish immigration rose in Montreal in the early 1880s and imposed acute financial burdens on the members of the YMHBS. As such, they appealed for financial assistance to the Austrian Baron Maurice de Hirsch, who had established himself as world Jewry’s greatest philanthropist. Baron and Baroness de Hirsch responded immediately and contributed a substantial donation at the end of the nineteenth century. Soon after, the decision was made to rename the agency the ‘Baron de Hirsch Institute and Young Men’s Hebrew Benevolent Society,’ marking the first of a number of name changes during the agency’s continued existence. A discrepancy exists within the Annual Reports and official history of the Institute as to the exact date of the name change, with some citing 1890 as the date of the decision, while others date it in 1900. Nevertheless, the Institute was revamped for the purpose of Jewish education of the poor and the establishment of a sheltering home for immigrants and orphans. The institution’s other original objectives were, among others, to assist the community of immigrants, provide medical care and burial grounds, establish schools and provide a Jewish public library for the community. In 1901, construction on the Bleury Street community building began, financed by the bequests of the Baron and Baroness de Hirsch who had passed away in 1896 and 1899, respectively. Immigration continued to rise in the early years of the twentieth century, with the weight of assistance falling on the shoulders of the Baron de Hirsch Institute. The first Jewish orphanage, the Montreal Hebrew Orphans’ Home, opened in 1909, followed by the establishment of a summer camp. In 1913, the Institute founded the “Friendly League of Jewish Women,” and the “Welcome Club for Jewish Working Girls.” Many immigrants did estabish themselves independently and formed new organizations that began to share in the burdens of caring for the social welfare of the community. Moreover, a 1916 provincial charter created the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of Montreal, launched through the initiative of the Institute, to serve as a coordinating body for the division of labour between the organizations of the Jewish community. The Baron de Hirsch Institute is structured in three major divisions: Family and Child Welfare (including the Visiting Homemaker Service), Legal Aid, and Cemetery (incorporated in 1971) Departments. It is a constituent member agency of Federation CJA, a member of the Association of Jewish Family and Children’s Agencies, and a member of the Conference of Jewish Communal Service. The Baron de Hirsch Institute has evolved throughout the years in the promotion of community partnerships and to adapt to changes in Quebec legislation. In June 1973, the Baron de Hirsch Institute moved to Cummings House; the move provided the agency with expanded and dignified quarters within which to pursue its work. A further aesthetic shift occurred with the change of the Baron de Hirsch Institute logo as its 125th anniversary approached in July 1988. The Institute has gone through a number of official name changes, collaborations and mergers as well, including those with the Hebrew Benevolent Society of Montreal, Jewish Child Welfare Bureau, the CLSC-JFS Cote St. Luc/Hampstead, and Jewish Family Services Social Service Centre. The Jewish Family Services Social Service Centre, a public social service centre, was created in 1973 with funding from Allied Jewish Community Services in response to Chapter 48 of Quebec legislation. Its aim was to bridge the gap between private agency sectarianism and government sponsored social services. For twenty years, the public Jewish Family Services Social Service Centre was linked with the private Jewish Family Services of the Baron de Hirsch Institute, with the Institute providing supplemental funding and services to areas within the Social Service Centre. In 1993, however, the Quebec provincial government enacted Reform Bill 120, whereby Jewish Family Services Social Service Centre ceased to exist with the termination of public funding. The two agencies became separate with the closing of the Social Service Centre, but the Baron de Hirsch Institute continued to provide direct or referral services to Jewish individuals in Montreal. During its existence, the Baron de Hirsch Institute has expanded to include involvement in a library, schools, immigrant aid, shelters, reception centres, farming communities, medical care, burial, orphanages, adoption, civil rights advocacy, fund-raising, social services, housing, vocational services, legal aid, chaplaincy, rehabilitative services, and many other activities. Family welfare increasingly became the Institute’s focus as it continued to meet the changing social needs of the Montreal community that were not met elsewhere. While maintaining ties with other community agencies throughout its history, the Institute has maintained its identity in order to service the Jewish community in the best possible way to provide the tools for self-help and group solidarity. Amid times of economic and political difficulties, the Baron de Hirsch Institute continued to stress the critical role of voluntarism as its greatest strength. Despite changes in location and official institutional names, Jewish Family Services of the Baron de Hirsch Institute continued to progress and advance with the times, backed by its historic mandate to provide services to people in need, within the Jewish tradition.
