History Biographical
The Moses Levin family was among the early settlers of the Ottawa Jewish Community, arriving in Ottawa in 1895. He arrived with his wife, Rebecca Glatt Levin, and children Jack A. (Jacob), Jean (Cooper), Anne (Stein), Lilian (Gould) and Goldie Levine (an added “e”to distinguish her in adult life from her brother Jack). Jack A. (Jacob) Levin was born in Manchester, England, the son of Rebecca and Moses Levine. Moses Levin started his business life in Ottawa as a peddler. By 1908-1909, he has a dry goods store at 213 Rideau Street, and lived at the same address. He died on February 4, 1942, and predeceased by his wife, Rebecca, who died October 30, 1929. They are buried in the Bank Street Cemetery. The only Levin son, Jack, was born in Manchester, England. He attended York St. Public School followed by Lisgar Collegiate. Then he attended McGill University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in 1919. He obtained an engineering degree and worked for a time for American Bridge Company in Pittsburgh. Then he spent three years in Palestine and found that experience particularly rewarding. On his return he joined the staff of the Department of Transport where he remained until his retirement. Jack Levin was one of the founding members of the Ottawa Jewish Historical Society and enjoyed working on the early history of the community. He was also a committed worker for the Public Service Division of the United Jewish Appeal, and a member for many years of the Beth Shalom Congregation and of B’nai B’rith. He was particularly fond of golf and chess. He is remembered “a very unassuming, nice guy, soft spoken, quiet”. He died in 1978.
