History Biographical
Poale Zion was started in 1905, with the name being Yiddish for "Labour Zion". Within the many groups that made up the Labour Zionist movement, the Poale Zion was considered to be the more political and radical organization, with the mission of addressing the working class, looking towards eventual settlement in the Land of Israel, and initiating education to prepare for life on a kibbutz. The Poale Zion records in Series B date mainly from 1933-1944 and were created by the Montreal office of this organization in the course of its operations at that time.
Custodial History
The records in this series were donated to CJC by David Rome, probably in the 1940s. David Rome worked for the Montreal branch of the Poale Zion in the late 1930s. He joined Canadian Jewish Congress as its Press officer in 1942.

History Biographical
Yiddish Programing at the Chapel Street JCC began early in 1998 as a weekly program called “The Yiddish Hour.” This was an innovative and creative approach lead by Shirley Steinberg to teach and practice Yiddish language skills through conversation, stories, songs, and improvisation (or improv) games. When the Soloway Jewish Community Centre opened in September 1998, the Yiddish Hour regrouped and welcomed new members. Over the next three years, under the guidance and direction of Shirley Steinberg, the group developed a series of Yiddish programs called “Gelechter un Gezang” (Laughter and Song). By 2002, encouraged and inspired by the degree of interest and attendance, and with sponsorship from the Soloway Jewish Community Centre, the group began to perform under the name Die Folkshpieler – the Soloway JCC Yiddish Players; a group now made up of mature amateur actors having the goal of providing the community with more ambitious Yiddish theater. Die Folkshpieler presented their first formal theater production in 2003 entitled “Alles in Eynem” (Everything in One). In 2012, Die Folkshpieler celebrated its tenth anniversary with a retrospective production entitled “Fun Necht’n Biz Heint” (From Yesterday to Today) which featured highlights from their most popular theater productions. The group disbanded in 2015 after their last performance entitled “S’iz Besser in Yiddish” (Its better in Yiddish). Throughout Die Folkshpieler’s 14 year history, Shirley Steinberg took on the role of script writer, director, producer, manager and everything in between. A former New Yorker, Mrs. Steinberg is well known in Ottawa for her musical contributions. She was the director of the Israella Singers and the Shir-Am Choral Group. Die Folkshpieler productions by date: 2001-2002 – Gelechter un Gezang (Laughter and Song) 2003 – Alles in Eynem (All in One) 2004 – Men Darf Lachen (One Has to Laugh) 2005 – Fun Shtetl Tzum Shtot (From the Village to Town) 2006 – Shprichverter Shpiel (Yiddish Proverbial Wisdom) 2007 – A Lek un a Shmek (A Lick and a Whiff) 2008 – Mispocha Michegas (Family Foilbles) 2009 – Abi Gezunt (Only Good Health) 2010 – Altz iz Meglach (Everything is Possible) 2011 – Die Sutzkova Saga (The Saga of the Sutkova Family) 2012 – Fun Necht’n Biz Heint (From Yesterday to Today) 2013 – A Neie Velt (A New World) 2014 – Yiddish Akademia far Kunzt (The Yiddish Academy of the Arts) 2015 – S’iz Besser in Yiddish (Its Better in Yiddish)
