History Biographical
Solomon Abel came to Canada from Russia via the United States, entering Canada in 1907. His six children (as of 1914) included daughter Annie, whose school documents are in this collection. Another daughter was the mother of Jack Silverstone, the donor. Mr Silverstone was the Executive Vice-President of Canadian Jewish Congress. These early immigration and school documents, all originals, are important for their display potential - one includes a photo and describes the subject's profession and Hebrew marriage.

History Biographical
Wolf Abelson married Julia Rosenblum of Toronto and settled in Ottawa in the early 1900's. Both were born in Lithuania. Prior to settling in Ottawa, Wolf lived in Syracuse, New York, and in Cleveland, Ohio. Wolf grew up in Neinstadt, a toen near Kovno, Lithuania. According to the Abelson family, Moses Bilsky, the first known Jewish settler in Ottawa, came from the same area in Lituania and encouraged Wolf to also settle in Ottawa. Wolf established the Rideau House Furnishing Company at 180 Rideau Street. He and wife Julia had seven children; sons Jess, Nathan and Sidney and four daughters, Birdie, Helen, Sarah and Sally. The Abelsons were members of the Adath Jeshurun Congregation and Wolf Abelson served as congregation vice-president during A. J. Freiman’s tenure as president between 1904 to 1930. Jess Abelson (1892-1975), born in Cleveland, Ohio, was an outstanding sportsman. He played football in 1913 - 1914 for the Ottawa Rough Riders and played basketball with the Y.M.C.A. He was also a member of the 1913 Canadian Champion War Canoe Team. In 1920, he became the first scoutmaster of the 39th Jewish Boy Scout Troop, one of the first Jewish scout troops in Canada. In 1920 Jess married Mollie Gray from New York. Their children included Sylvia, Lawrence, Stan, Alan (b. August 27, 1928) and Bobby. Jess was a top salesman with the Northern Life Assurance Company and in later years he was active in curling and was the founder of the Tel Aviv Tennis Club. In 1986, Jess Abelson was the first person inducted into the Ottawa Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. His influence on Ottawa and on the Ottawa Jewish community extended well beyond sports, but as a sports personality he was a paragon of excellence for young Jewish athletes. All of Jess Abelsons sons excelled in sports. Tragically, Flying Officer Lawrence "Duke" Abelson died in a training flight in England November 15, 1943 while serving in World War II. Duke went overseas in the fall of 1942 and with R.C.A.F. Mosquito Squadron. Alan became a lawyer, and lives and works in Ottawa.
