History Biographical
The foundation for the Ottawa school was laid out in 1925 with the help of the Montreal Folk Shule and its Director, Mr. S. Weisman. Classes were first held with 25 pupils in a hall on Rideau Street. They moved later to a store on Rideau, then to larger quarters on York Street. The first teacher was Dr. M. H. Arnoni, followed by Mr. and Mrs. A. Endelman of Montreal. Additional teachers included Z. Lev and Frank Malamuth. The officers were Mr. Max Baylin, President, Daniel Green, Vice-President and Treasurer, S. Polisky (1-166), Secretary, A. Endelman, recording Secretary, Max Baylin, and Daniel Green was also a founder for the Ottawa shule. Eventually there were five grades with approximately 100 pupils, both boys and girls. The school had a difficult time as it lacked financial support by the Jewish community. It was maintained by membership fees and the yearly campaign which was generously supported by the late Archibald Freiman, who personally admired the spirit of the school and those involved in its administration. Folk Shule supporters were supporters of the radical left of socialism who desired Yiddish instruction along with Hebrew. It was a secular school where classics were read, poems recited, choirs organized and plays presented. Financial difficulties ultimately weakened the Folk Shule. In 1935 or 1936 the Ottawa Talmud Torah Board assumed the institution’s assets and liabilities together with the services of Frank Malamuth.
