Admin History/Bio
The Capricorn Group was established as the junior auxiliary of the Women's Auxiliary in January 1971. The purpose of the group was to provide new ideas for fundraising and service. Initially the group acted as hostess for the residents' Mazel Tov nights and helped the Women's Auxiliary with its annual Auxilorama fundraising event. Its activities expanded to include the operation of a boutique that was situated next to Baycrest's Snack Bar, acting as hostess for day care luncheons and a weekly happy hour event (originally called cocktail hour), managing a paperback book sale, and the sale of Daffodils for cancer research. The Capricorn Group also established a student work scholarship program, which awarded $600.00 to four Jewish students with high academic standing who were willing to volunteer seven hours per week under the group's supervision.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of records documenting the activities and programs of the Women's Auxiliary's Capricorn Group. Included are meeting notices and minutes, reports, membership lists, correspondence, and photographs.

Gerald Halbert was born in 1935 to Hyman and Faye Halbert in Toronto. He is the brother of Dr. Ralph Halbert and Mrs. Rhoda Brown (nee Halbert). Gerald's mother Faye was Sylvia Schwartz's cousin on her mother's side.

Around that time he became very involved in the Jewish community, first volunteering for the UJA in 1960 and then traveling to Israel on a UJA Young Leadership Mission in 1962. Inspired and awed by the country, his lifelong commitment to the community was solidified. Since that time he has held many volunteer leadership roles within the Toronto community, including: chair and/or co-chair for three UJA Federation Campaigns and President of United Israel Appeal of Canada and of Canadian Friends of Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has also been active in the development of the Wolfond Centre for Jewish Campus Life at the University of Toronto.
Outside of the Jewish community, he has helped to raise funds for and establish several research chairs at the University of Toronto and University Health Network and is a member of the Mount Sinai Hospital Board of Governors. He is a member of the Toronto General and Western Hospital Foundation Board of Directors, where he has volunteered significant time to a number of fundraising initiatives including the Spark of Life and Neurosurgery Chair Campaigns. He is also Board Champion for the Krembil Neuroscience Centre’s Krembil Discovery Tower and Krembil Neuro Program.
In 2002 he was awarded the Order of Canada for his lifelong commitment and contributions to his community.
