History Biographical
Abe Carlofsky was born on December 8, 1912, in Ottawa, the son of Hannah and David Carlofsky. “David and Hannah immigrated from Odessa to Ottawa. With the births in Ottawa of Rose, Freda, Anne, Abe and Sol, the Carlofskys became a close-knit family of five children.” Abe, Freda and Sol never married. In September 1927, Abe Carlofsky enrolled in the Commercial Department of the Technical School, later known as the High School of Commerce. Previously he had been in First Form of Kent Street High School. He was promoted to Third Form in June, 1928. By July of 1929, he entered the Civil Service of Canada and in 1934 was assigned to a permanent position as a clerk. He served on Active Service with the Royal Canadian Air Force from September 1942 until May 1946. He served overseas for two years, on flight control work and saw service in England and with the occupational force in Germany. After the war Abe returned to the Civil Service and took early retirement in the 1960's. For the next forty years he identified and supported worthy causes in the Carlofsky Family name. These charities included Beth Shalom Synagogue, Carlofsky Family Day Care at Hillel Lodge as well as Civic Hospital and Ottawa General Campuses of the Ottawa Hospital. Abe became an avid golfer at the Rideau View Golf Club, and also served on the Rideau View Golf Club's board.

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.

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.

History Biographical
Abraham Shaffer was born in Albany, NY in 1885, son of Samuel Shaffer (b. date unknown - d. 1917) and Mushah Shaffer (b. date unknown - d. 1923). Samuel Shaffer immigrated to New York from Russia. After landing at Ellis Island he settled in Albany and became an agent for a soda water manufacturer. He travelled to Ottawa several times during the summers and while visiting boarded with Jewish families. He eventually moved his family to Gigues Street and worked as a peddler. As a young man, Abraham went to work for an uncle in Brooklyn who was in the bookbinding business, where he was tasked with applying gold leaf to books. In Brooklyn he met Mary Baslaw and they married in 1907. Mary’s family operated a small grocery business without refrigeration. The shop operated long hours. Mary, who by then had two small sons, Irving and Harold, was also working in the family business and became very run down. Abraham and Mary decided to leave Brooklyn and move to Canada and spent a winter in Buckingham, Quebec, before settling in Ottawa. They would have a daughter Beatrice, and two more sons, Milton and Sheldon. In February, 1911 they opened Shaffer's clothing shop on Dalhousie Street. Shortly afterwards they relocated the shop to Rideau Street as Mary realised shops on Rideau saw more business. Eventually they expanded to include 143 to 147 and 147 1/2 Rideau. The store remained there until it closed in 1967.

History Biographical
Rabbi Roy Tannenbaum, formerly of Agudath Israel Congregation, initiated the idea for an egalitarian Conservative synagogue. Early supporters included Morris Schnitzer and Leah Schnitzer, Steve Sugar and Chris Sugar as well as Irwin Brodo and Fenja Brodo. By September, 1979, Adath Shalom was officially affiliated with the United Synagogue Of America (now called the United Synagogues of Conservative Judaism), and it was welcomed as a member of the Jewish Community Council of Ottawa. The first service was held on July 22, 1978, in the Greenbank Public School library and the first president Michael Berns was elected in August 1978. Prayer books were stored in Greenbank School lockers and the Sefer Torah was initially borrowed from Beth Shalom Synagogue. The ark and bimah were stored in the school’s storage area. Other space was rented for High Holidays. Founding principles included more equal participation of women in the service and by February 1982, women were welcomed to participate as part of the minyan. Only after a number of years and many different chazanim and rabbis did congregates take on the responsibility of leasing space for services for the High Holy Days. At the Annual General Meeting in 1990, the congregation approved a move to the Broadview Campus of the Jewish Community Centre and the first service was held at Hillel Academy chapel in 1993.

History Biographical
Adolphe Sherman (b.1888- d.1943) was born near Minsk, Russia. He spent his early years in Kiev travelling from village to village as a tailor, before arriving in Ottawa in 1903 at age 15. Adolphe Sherman was sponsored by his uncle R. H. Miller, a ladies tailor and furrier. Naturally he went to work for his uncle, working as a cutter and designer before opening his own small shop at 390 Somerset Street. The small shop was a success so he opened a larger store, A. Sherman Ladies Tailor and Furrier, at 216 Bank Street in 1912. Adolphe Sherman’s wife, Sadie Pascovsky (also seen as Pakefsky, Paskevsky, and later changed to Pascal) (b. April 7, 1886 – d. March 24, 1960) also worked in the business. Sadie was born in Odessa, Russia, and arrived in Ottawa in 1905 at age 19. She and Adolphe were married in 1905. In 1926 the Sherman’s were living at 406 Bay Street. Adolphe Sherman was President of the B’nai Jacob Congregation (1930-1935) and was responsible for rebuilding the James Street synagogue. He laid the cornerstone for the synagogue in 1931. He was also active in other Ottawa Jewish organizations; serving as Vice-President of the Ottawa Talmud Torah Board, vice-chairman of the Keren Hayesod Campaign for 1933, and was an active member of the Hebrew Benevolent Society. He was also one of the original members of the Ottawa Vaad Ha'ir which was formed in 1934. Adolphe Sherman enjoyed taking his family on motor trips to New York and Philadelphia to visit relatives. He also undertook an extended business and pleasure trip in the winter of 1932 to New York, the Caribbean, Panama and parts of South America. These trips were extensively photographed and documented within the collection. Adolphe and Sadie had three daughters: Sylvia (Friedman), Anne (Aaron) and Dorothy (Maser). Sylvia married Jerry Friedman (Jeremiah Abraham Friedman) in January of 1953 at B'nai Jacob Synagogue. They had one daughter, Perley-Ann Friedman. Anne married Louis Aaron and Dorothy married Dave Maser. Adolphe Sherman’s brother, Alex Sherman, (b. unknown d. May 24, 1975).was a prolific music man who set up record stores across Canada. He acquired the name of Mr. Records, becoming the head of the "Excellent record studio and label." He was among the promoters and organizers that arranged for Elvis Presley‘s concert at The Auditorium music hall in April, 1957. He was the father of Allan Sherman and grandfather of Felicia Sherman and Jennifer Sherman.

Notes
1. Inscription on a photocopied photograph of Sadie and her brother reads: "This is Maw and her brother who lived in New York. He was married to Mrs. Epstine [sic]'s sister. Maw was 18 when the picture was taken in Russia. They never had any children" 2. Numerous unscanned photographs in this fonds. 3. Oversize items include Adolphe's scrapbooks and Sylvia's photo albums. They are located with oversize materials for Individuals and Family fonds. 4.A hand written note within Adolphe's file implies that Sadie's sister (name not given) married a man named Max Shulman. 5.According to some sales records listed in the Ottawa Citizen, September 8, 1933, the Sherman family home was once at Charlotte and Besserer Streets and was sold to a Selena Maxwell for $31,000. 6. Apparently, when many students were forbidden to Elvis Presley but went regardless, they were expelled from school. Alex Sherman spoke to school administrators on the students' behalfs, and faciliated re-enrollment for many.
