History Biographical
The Jewish Theatre Guild developed from the Yiddish Literary and Dramatic Society of Ottawa. It formed around 1937 with I. Lewis Cohen as President, Edward Gittleson and Mrs Irene Heilingher as Vice-Presidents, Dr. Sam Mirsky as Treasurer, Anne Dashiff and Anne Goldman as Corresponding Secretaries and Max Bookman as Recording Secretary. David Slover was the Artistic Director. The Guild commenced with a very ambitious program; in addition to plays, the Guild held evenings for recitations, readings and discussions of current Yiddish authors’ works like David Pinski and Jewish current events by Max Bookman. Initially a Junior Branch was organized at the Ottawa Talmud Torah to interest young people in the theatre. In 1938, the Guild entered the Ottawa City Drama Festival. World War II interrupted Ottawa theatre productions and it was only in 1949 that productions commenced again with a Workshop in 1950. David Slover, I. Lewis Cohen and Mrs. Rudolph (Irene) Heilingher were on the Board of Directors. The last production in 1956 was "The world of Shalom Aleichem" (in English) under the direction of David Slover.
Notes
