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.

History Biographical
The Jewish Legion was the name for five battalions of Jewish volunteers established by the British Army as the 38th and 39th Battalions of the Royal Fusiliers during the First World War, in Palestine who fought for the liberation of Erez Israel [region] from the Turkish rule. It was formed when Britain began his war against the Ottoman Turks. At the same time, Zionist [A Jewish political movement that arose in the late 19th century in response to growing anti-Semitism and sought to reestablish a sovereign Jewish homeland in Palestine.] around the world saw an opportunity to promote the idea of a Jewish National Homeland in Palestine; therefore, some Jewish people raised the idea of the formation of a Jewish unit that would participate to conquer Palestine. At the beginning of the war, the British government opposed the participation of such as group of people in Palestine, but in 1917 ultimately, the formation of a Jewish regiment was officially announced. The Legion also named the Zion Mule Corps, made up Jewish from different countries such as Britain, Russia, the United States and Canada, served on the Gallipoli front in 1915-1916, and also in the Jordan Valley in 1918. The Jewish Legion was a unique regiment who had been awarded, in the late 1919, a distinctive cap badge; a menorah. After the war, some of the members returned to their respective countries while others settled in Palestine to realize their Zionist aspirations.

History Biographical
Alex Betcherman was born in Russia in 1892, son of Fishel and Brucha (Addleman) Betcherman. The family arrived in Pembroke, Ontario in 1905 where Mrs. Betcherman had a younger brother, Michael Addleman. The Betcherman’s moved to Ottawa around 1910 in part to facilitate the Jewish education of the Betcherman children. They became members of the Agudath Achim Congregation. Alex Betcherman started business as a scrap dealer. Later he opened a scrap yard in partnership with Louis Baker. Sometime in the 1920's, Alex Betcherman, along with his brothers Myer and Abe, started the firm Betcherman Iron and Steel. Their business was located in Eastview, which is now in Vanier. In the 1930's they began to manufacture brass ingots and pioneered the use of ingots in Canada. During his lifetime Alex Betcherman was among the most influential men in the city, and was affectionately deemed “the Dean of the Jewish community.” He was a great figure in Ottawa and his passing in 1977 marked the end of an era. He occupied most of the top level posts available in the Jewish community; he was President of the Jewish Community Council and Agudath Achim Congregation, a founding father of the Jewish Community Centre on Chapel Street, a founder of Camp B’nai B'rith and the Rideau View Golf and Country Club. In 1954 he was named Ottawa Citizen of the Year by B’nai Brith and the Jewish National Fund Negev Dinner honoured him in 1965. He married Mollie Lena Florence, President of the Lena Florence Chapter of Ottawa Hadassah-Wizo. They had three children.
