History Biographical
David Aptowitzer was born in 1923 in Tarnopol, Poland. He was the youngest of the 7 children of Chaya Jampoler and Yitzhak Aptowitzer, a boot maker. In September 1939, while visiting his sister Bronia and her husband Shmuel, the then 16 year old David got an offer that saved his life. Shmuel’s employer, a Russian railway company, had offered to move its workers and their families to the relative safety of the Soviet Union. Bronia proposed that David come along and he accepted. Germany then invaded Poland and what was meant to be a trip of a few days became a five-year journey filled with turmoil, heartache, and close brushes with death and imprisonment. During these five years David worked as a laborer then was drafted into the Russian Army and later the Polish Army. As the Soviets began to push back the German forces, David began to discover the horrors of the Holocaust. In 1944, outside the Polish city of Lublin, he stumbled upon the concentration camp at Maidenek, a place which he recalled as being “beyond human comprehension,” and once the war ended he learned that virtually his entire family – his parents, four siblings and their families – had been killed. The only survivors were a sister, a brother, and himself. He spent two years in a displaced persons camp in Germany and in 1947, he and 1500 other war orphans sailed for Halifax, Nova Scotia, aboard a Canadian navy ship converted to carry refugees. During the voyage he met Gitta Adler, a survivor of Auschwitz, and nearly 5 years later in 1951, after a long distance courtship (Gitta in Ottawa and David in Montreal), the couple was married. Gitta Adler was born in Satmar Nemeti, Hungary in 1931, one of 7 children of Josephine and Joseph Adler, a wholesale raw wool merchant. In June 1944, Gitta and her family were sent to Auschwitz. Four months later she was sent to work as a slave laborer in an airplane factory. She survived a death march before finally being liberated by four American soldiers riding in a Jeep, which she recalled as being “a beautiful sight.” Soon after, Gitta learned that her parents and 5 of her siblings have been killed at Auschwitz. She and one of her sisters were their family’s sole survivors. Once in Canada David began contemplating his career. At the time, the Canadian Jewish Congress was looking after war orphans who had arrived in Montreal and David express to the Congress his interest in becoming a cantor. He was enrolled in the United Hebrew Teachers Seminary and in Montreal’s Merkaz HaTorah Yeshiva. He also studied music at McGill University, and had the opportunity to study liturgy with two cantors and also studied voice with an opera singer. Following his marriage to Gitta Adler, David was approached by Agudath Israel Congregation to audition to be its first chazzan and teacher. David tried out for the job and was offered the position – one he would hold for 42 years. He was actively involved in the development of the congregation and the services of the Ottawa Jewish community. He taught afternoon school and at Hillel Academy, and also taught choir and helped many youth prepare for their B'nai Mitzvah. David later became a mohel and preformed over 2000 brisses. Cantor Aptowitzer retired in 1994, was honored by the Jewish National Fund 1997 Negev Dinner, and he and wife Gitta made aliyah in 2013. They now live in Motza, a community 10 miles from Jerusalem. David and Gitta have two sons, Edwin Henry Aptowitzer (b. September 18, 1955), Yitzhak (Emanuel Howard) Aptowitzer (b. November 21, 1960) and a daughter Pnina(Pearl) ah (b. March 18, 1953) who passed away suddenly in 2001. They have a large extended family in Israel including 14 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren (as of 2013).

History Biographical
David Appotive (b. February 17, 1917 - d. December 30, 2009) was born in Zhitomir, Russia. He was the son of Abraham and Sarah (Viner) Appotive. The Appotive family; including sons David, Rudy, Joe and Ben, immigrated to Canada and arrived in Montreal around December 24, 1925 where they initially stayed with Viner relatives. Ottawa was their chosen destination as Sarah’s mother, Gittel Viner, lived here. David and his brothers attended York Street School and continued their education at the High School of Commerce. After high school, David apprenticed as a bookkeeper with Martin Levinson, Chartered Accountant. After working for S&S Auto Parts (Saslove & Stone) he enlisted in the Canadian armed forces and in the summer of 1942 was sent overseas along with brothers Rudy and Joe. David was assigned to the Royal Canadian Engineers. “They built bridges for the Canadian, British and American armies. They were bombed, shelled and lived through terrible times, especially in Holland”. He returned safely to civilian life in Ottawa and engaged in several business ventures. Before deployment in 1942, David married Edith Feldblum. They had four surviving children, Gloria, Sharon, Jeffrey and Donna and another that passed away.

History Biographical
David Epstein was born in Keltz, Poland in 1884; one of seven children. He was married at the age of 20 to Rachel with whom he immigrated to Canada for both a better life and as a way to help his family financially. In Ottawa, David worked as a tailor’s apprentice. He soon opened his own tailor shop where Prime Minister Sir Wilfred Laurier was a regular customer. His business grew and became successful as the Prime Minister encouraged the Privy Counselors to have Mr. Epstein look after their repairs and to order their suits from him. His success allowed him to invest in Ottawa real estate. He would purchase small houses and sell them at a reasonable profit. Those small profits increased and his many dealings made him an affluent person. David traveled extensively. By 1931, he had visited every American State, Cuba, and Mexico, and every Canadian Province. He spent winters in Florida each year. David was elected by the Ottawa City Council as a member of the Court of Revision relating to assessment appeals and was appointed Justice of the Peace for the County of Carleton by the Provincial Government. He was at one point considered for a seat in the Senate of Canada. David Epstein did not recieve formal schooling which motivated him to ensure that others were provided with the opportunity for continued study. Upon David’s death, on July 16, 1968, his will provided for the establishment of the David and Rachel Epstein Foundation, devoted to the Jewish charitable, religious and educational organizations, and also for Carleton University. The Epstein’s generosity is commemorated by a plaque in the Soloway Jewish Community Centre and by the annual award of the Epstein Scholarships at Carleton University.

History Biographical
Rabbi Arnold Fine was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, in 1938. He met his wife Charlene (Chevy) in 1958 and they married in June, 1962. Together they had four children and several grandchildren. Rabbi "Arnie" Fine came to Ottawa from Boston in 1981 to assume the pulpit at Agudath Israel Congregation. Prior to moving to Ottawa he was the Executive Director of the Associated Synagogues of Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Board of Rabbis and Co-ordinator of the Jewish Chaplaincy Council from 1975-1980. During this time he was also a part-time Rabbi at Temple Adath Sharon in Sharon, Massachusetts. From 1966-1968, he held the position of Rabbi at the Tree of Life Synagogue, Uniontown, Pennsylvania and from 1968-1975 he was Rabbi of Beth Jacob Synagogue, Norwich Conneticut. Rabbi Fine received his Rabbinic degree from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in 1966. He also studied at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Ten years after arriving in Ottawa, Rabbi Fine was the Jewish National Fund's honouree for the Negev Dinner Campaign. The Ottawa Road running through JNF's Jerusalem Forest was built and dedicated in honour of Rabbi Fine. Rabbi Fine was honoured for his work with State of Israel Bonds in 2003. He has also served on several committees of the Jewish Community Council including chair of the Panel on Jewish Education and the Scholarship for Israel Trip for Teenagers, Vaad HaKashrut, Community Relations and others. Rabbi Fine was co-founder and co-chair of the Ottawa Jewish Christian Dialogue. He is a long-time participant in Christian-Jewish and Muslim-Jewish Dialogue. When he first moved to Ottawa, Rabbi Fine was shocked to discover that no dialogue existed with other religious communities in the City. Rabbi Fine co-produced and co-hosted 'Focus Religion', a radio program that ran for seven years in Ottawa. He has led several missions to Israel and is affiliated with the National Board of Mercaz Canada and the American Zionist Federation. A tribute dinner was held for Rabbi Arnold Fine upon his retirement. The event took place on May 16th, 2004 at Agudath Israel to mark the many contributions to the congregation and the Ottawa Jewish Community over his 23 years of service. Funds raised at the dinner were designated for new synagogue projects and programs for youth and education; two causes particularly important to Rabbi Fine. Rabbi Fine was appointed Rabbi Emeritus in 2004. A CD containing 315 photographs from the event is stored in Multimedia Box 1.

Personal records of Rabbi Fine's were transferred from his home in early 2009 by Estelle Gunner.
