Admin History/Bio
Rebecca Kamarner (née Huenstein) (1882-1975) was born in Russia and lived there until her early adulthood. She married Harry Kamarner (1877- 1962) in 1902 and immigrated to Toronto around 1904. Mrs. Chava Kamarner (1847-1929), possibly Harry’s mother, may have immigrated at a later date and lived with the family in Canada. Rebecca and Harry had three children: Bessie (b. 1903), Anne (b. 1906?), and Jack (1907?-1986). Harry and Rebecca lived on 35 Bellevue Avenue in 1925 and later resided at 72 Barton Street.
From the date of her arrival as an immigrant to Canada, Mrs. Kamarner was involved in charitable work through such organizations as The Hebrew Women’s Convalescent Home established in 1936 (of which she was the President and founder), The Hebrew Maternity Aid Society, and The Women’s Auxiliary Toronto Hebrew Free School. During the First and Second World Wars she was actively involved in social aid and the sponsorship of orphans, and she worked as a nurse during the influenza pandemic that began in 1918 and had its greatest effect on the Jewish community in Toronto in 1919 and 1920. She was one of the earliest members of the Toronto Hadassah-Wizo (Schamira Levine chapter) and was also actively involved in fundraising for the Women’s Auxiliary of The New Mount Sinai Hospital, of which she was listed as a charter member. She served on the Board of Directors of The Jewish Home for the Aged and was a preeminent name in the promotion of convalescent care and social advocacy for the disadvantaged throughout her lifetime.
Harry, Nathan "Nutta" (d. 1956), and Louis Kamarnar were men’s clothing and furnishings retailers and owned the Merchant’s Clothing Co. store on 131 Queen Street West. Harry, his son Jack, and his son-in-law Harry Granger, were also affiliated with the Judean Knights of Pythias, a fraternal order.
Bessie Kamarner married Sam Robins (b.1893) in 1922 and they lived together at 273 Queen Street East. Anne Kamarner was married to Harry Graner (d. 1986) in 1931. Jack Kamarner lived in Toronto and married Jeanne (née Rubin). They had two daughters, Ann and Nancy.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of family photographs, a scrapbook, and other textual records, both of a personal nature and those relating to the volunteer work done by Rebecca Kamarner. These records document her community social work, her affiliation with the Women’s Auxiliary, and her fundraising efforts for the Hebrew Women’s Convalescent Home, later the Mount Sinai Convalescent Home, in Toronto.

Accession consists of two microfilm reels, one negative and one positive, of a scrapbook compiled by Sara Godfrey of Toronto, the wife of Samuel Godfrey. The documents in the scrapbook include newspaper clippings, photographs, invitations and event programmes. These include a booklet for the building campaign for the new Jewish Community Centre at Bloor and Spadina; a programme from the official opening of the Jewish Home for the Aged and Baycrest Hospital in 1954; a "Y-Time" newsletter of the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. of Toronto from 1972; and UJWF annual reports.

Most of the records relate to Samual Godfrey, O.B.E. A smaller number are written by or are about Dr. I. Pollock, and there are some clippings related to the social and cultural activities of Sara Godfrey, for example with Hadassah and the Women's Auxiliary of Mount Sinai Hospital.
Administrative History
Samuel Godfrey was a successful businessman and an active leader in Toronto's Jewish community in the 1940s and 1950s. Born in Russian Poland in 1899 to Solomon and Minnie (Fleishman) Godfrey, he came to Toronto as a baby. His first job was as a newsboy. In 1922, he established a company that became one of Canada's largest waste and wool merchants: S. Godfrey, Ltd. As well, he was president of several other companies. In 1925, Godfrey married Sara E. Levi and the couple had three daughters, Sheila, Judith and Margaret. Sheila married Dr. Ira Pollock, son of Clara Teich Pollock and Maurice Aaron Pollock.
Samuel Godfrey was involved with numerous entities during a time of expansion for the Jewish community. He was a founding co-chairman of the United Jewish Welfare Fund in 1938; president of the United Jewish Appeal in 1941; president of the Community Chest of Greater Toronto; co-chair of the building committee for the new Jewish Community Centre at Bloor and Spadina; and he was involved in fundraising for the construction of the new Mount Sinai Hospital.
Godfrey was nominated to run for the federal Liberal party in the October 1955 by-election, but lost to the Conservative Party. He was invested in the Office of the British Empire in 1948 and he and his wife established the Samuel Godfrey Scholarship at the University of Toronto's medical school. Samuel Godfrey died in 1956.
