Admin History/Bio
Jessie Ethel Sampter, author of the play "The New Apostasy," was an American Zionist educator, poet, and feminist leader. Sampter was a close friend and colleague of Henrietta Szold, first president of Hadassah. Born in New York City on March 22, 1883, Sampter was the daughter of wealthy German Jewish parents. Frail and crippled by polio as a child, she did not attend school and was largely self-educated. Henrietta Szold was among a handful of individuals who introduced Sampter to Zionism and the two became lifelong friends and philosophical comrades. In 1915, Sampter founded Hadassah's School of Zionism. As director of the school, she conducted its class on Zionism, composed Zionist manuals, and co-edited a textbook on Zionism that had three editions. She was considered Zionism's premier educator in America at that time. In 1919, she moved to Palestine, where she settled on a kibbutz, and advocated for peaceful relations between Jews and Arabs. Sampter channelled her pacifist convictions into advocacy of good relations between Jews and Arabs and wrote poetry to promote this ideal. Concerned for the welfare of Yemenite Jews, she undertook the education of Yemenite girls and adopted a Yemenite child before her untimely death on November 11, 1938 from malaria and heart disease.
Scope and Content
This file contains three playscripts: "The Dream of Bath Zion," "The New Apostasy" by Jessie E. Sampter, and "Nishikigi" by Motokiyo. These plays were likely used as part of Betty's Hadassah activities.
Notes
Biographical information about Jessie Ethel Sampter was taken from the Jewish Women's Archive [http://jwa.org/archive/jsp/perInfo.jsp?personID=700], on Feb. 2, 2006, and hadassah.org's "Chronology" page: [http://www.hadassah.org/about/content/chron/1910f.asp], also on Feb. 2, 2006.

Joseph Gary and Goldie Gary (née Lawrence) married in 1921 in Rochester, New York. Shortly thereafter they moved to Toronto. Joseph and Goldie had three children: daughters Ethel (Halter) and Shirley (Cohen) and son Leslie. In 1950, after three years of visiting the region, Joseph and Goldie purchased a home on Amelia Street in Pontypool, Ontario. As the area was a popular summer resort spot for vacationing Jews from the 1940s to the 1960s, Joseph and Goldie decided to build 10 cottages on their land for rental, which they named Gary's Cottages. The cottages were sold around 1970 and are no longer in existence; however, their home is still standing.

Clanton Park Synagogue was an orthodox synagogue that began as a shteibel in 1955 in the newly built up area of North York. Originally, services were held in homes or rented quarters. In 1957, land was purchased on Lowesmoor Avenue, and in 1961, the synagogue building was dedicated. The congregation, which initially consisted of 20 families, has grown steadily over the years and now has a membership of over 300 families. Sol Edell was one of the founding members of Clanton Park. He was president of the synagogue and served on the Board. He was involved in the purchase of the property and supervised the construction, the renovation and upkeep of the building. As well, he was active in the programmes sponsored by the synagogue such as the Long Life Club, which provided activities for seniors. He attended services on a daily basis and retained his membership until his death in 2000.
