History Biographical
Abraham Lithwick (b. 1897 Ritziv, Russia - d. 1953 Ottawa) and Dora (Rosenberg) Lithwick (b. 1897 Rovno, Ukraine - d. January 30, 1980 Ottawa) arrived in Ottawa on July 8, 1921. They were among the large group of immigrants that fled Russia and its pograms in the early 1920's. They operated, Lithwick's, a wholesale and retail store in the Byward Market for 12 years. In 1937, the entire family left Ottawa for Melbourne, Australia where Dora’s father, brothers and uncles had immigrated. Because of an epidemic of infantile paralysis, they returned to Ottawa 15 weeks after their initial departure. Another reason was the unexpected aspect that the Lithwicks would be starting again as immigrants in Australia and learning a new set of rules and regulations for business. Upon their return, Abraham Lithwick turned to real estate and became more involved in the Jewish community. He died in 1953 after a short illness. Shortly after, Dora Lithwick began working toward establishing a home for elderly Jewish people. In 1963, the sod was turned for Hillel Lodge on Wurtemburg Street. Dora Lithwick was a founder and first President of the Ottawa Jewish Home for the Aged. In 1975, she was instrumental in having a religious chapel added to the home and it carried the name Abraham and Dora Lithwick Beth Midrash.
Notes
1. Dora’s father in Australia was working in real estate. 2. Interview with Dora Lithwick gives an excellent overview of shop life during the depression in Ottawa.

Scope and Content
Fonds consists of: a photocopied letter from Rabbi Fyne, July 18, 1924; a hand coloured certificate of condolence when Abraham Caplin died in July, 1924 signed by S. Spevak (President) and A. Sugarman (Vice-President) (see 1-1007); and four shoichet knives. The shoichet knives (butchers knives) were owned by Abraham Caplin. Two have stamps from New Jersey, a third was made in Germany, and the fourth is unmarked. Three also have what seems to be early Bakelite handles - the earliest type of commercial plastic. This would put the date of their manufacture at any time after 1907. The handle from Germany however is made of ivory and is stamped with the name G. Gruenwald / Konigsberg. Gruenwald specialized in making ritual knives like circumcision blades and other slaughterer's tools. The these knives were likely made between 1850 and 1915. Allan has memories of his grandfather sharpening the knives using a whetstone, again and again, until they were sharper than a razor blade. "He would run his fingernail down the length of the blade looking for any chips, and if there were, back to the stone."

History Biographical
Abraham Caplin (b. unknown - d. 1926) arrived in Ottawa in 1889 from Russia. He came with his wife, Doris (Pullan), daughter Bessie Caplin (b. 1888- d. 1951) and sons Louis Caplin and Manny Caplin. Abraham was a cantor but was unable to make a living as a cantor in Ottawa as the Jewish community was simply too small - only around 25 to 30 people. In the late 1890's or early 1900's, he became a shochet, as well as a secondhand goods merchant. The family has a small home and shop located at 479 Wellington (See Ottawa's 1907 City Directory). The family eventually moved to 367 Besserer which was much closer to the slaughterhouse, which at the time was located in a park that located at the corner of Charlotte and Laurier Avenue. Allan Maser, Abraham's grandson, recalled "it was on the very edge of the town at that time. Beyond that was Eastview (now Vanier) and then fields and fields." Abraham was a founder and strong supporter of Agudath Achim, Ottawa's second congregation, and was mourned deeply by the entire community when he passed away in 1926. Abraham's son Louis Caplin married Alice Adler and lived in Toronto. Son Manny moved first to Detroit, then settled in Los Angeles. Daughter Bessie married Rabbi Max Maser (b. 1886- d. 1953) sometime between 1906 and 1911. Bessie met Rabbi Maser when he was invited to perform High Holiday services for Agudath Achim and stayed at the family's home. Rabbi Maser subsequently became the Assistant Cantor of Congregation Agudath Achim and would serve the congregation between 1924 and 1954. The couple had nine sons, seven of whom served overseas in World War II, and a daughter.

Notes
1. Biographical information provided by Allan Maser and by the Honourable Abraham H. Lieff, 2001. 2. The Caplan surname is usually spelled with “a,” however, Abraham Caplin’s headstone in the Bank Street cemetery is spelled with an “i”. Allan Maser suggested (July, 2014) that the change in spelling likely occurred during the immigration process.
