History Biographical
The Federation (or Farband) of Polish Jews of Canada was established in 1933 in Montreal, across Canada, and in other Western nations. Together with its women's auxiliary, "Ezra", its main efforts were war-related. Before World War II, funds were raised for general aid to Poland's Jews. During and after the war, the Federation sent money and clothing to refugees, brought war orphans to Canada, monitored Canadians' Polish relatives, searched for such relatives (with Canadian Jewish Congress, the Joint Distribution Committee and ORT), tried to save intellectuals and rabbis, and cared for refugee children. Immigrants were helped to integrate, and those Jews interned in Canada by the British were also supported. A flow of information was maintained through ties with international organizations and the Polish consulates and government. The Federation also established a Moess Chittin Fund.
Notes

History Biographical
Pioneer Women (now called Na'amat) was founded in America and Montreal in 1925. This women's organization, part of the Labour Zionist movement, raises funds which provide half of all social services for Israeli women, youth and children. Affiliated with Israel's Moetzet Hapoalot, they sponsor a nurses training school, children's homes, day cares, vocational and agricultural schools, and community centres which help Jewish and Arab Israelis. Aside from fundraising, they run educational and cultural activities to encourage women to be active in Israeli and Canadian affairs. Pioneer Women/Na'amat was affiliated with their American counterpart until the late 1960s, when they became an independent Canadian group. They support the Habonim-Dror Zionist youth movement, and are active in promoting women's issues, in Israel and elsewhere, by their members throughout Canada and in twelve other nations.

History Biographical
The United Jewish Teachers Seminary of Canada, located in Montreal, was established in 1949 by the merger of two seminaries (both founded in 1946). Its aim was to train Canadian-born Jewish teachers properly, so that they in turn could provide their Canadian students with a relevant Jewish education. European or Israeli-born teachers, to do likewise, would at least be trained in Canada. Subsidized for many years by the Canadian Jewish Congress, the Seminary offered classes in Yiddish and Hebrew language and literature, Bible, Jewish history and religion, as well as education courses. It provided student loans, asked no tuition, and tried to place its students after graduation. With teachers such as S. Dunsky, M. Ravich, S. Wiseman, and L. Tencer, the Seminary produced such future educators as D. August, L. Cohen, H. Eliashiv, Z. Ettinger and N. Wilchesky.
