Consists of committee documents, agendas and minutes from the members of the J.I. Segal Cultural fund committee.
The J.I. Segal Fund was established on the 6th of December 1967, on the initiative of Dr. Hirsch and Dora Rosenfeld. The purpose of the Fund is to award annual prizes for literature for a book of Jewish content, published in Yiddish, Hebrew, English or French.
Other prizes have been awarded for excellence in education, theatre or Jewish culture in Canada in general. In 2008, the Jewish Public Library celebrated the 40th anniversary of the J.I. Segal Awards. The awards are now handed out every two years.
