Custodial History
This series’ original provenance is difficult to pinpoint, but the files before 1937 are likely to have belonged to Maurice A. Solkin when he was Executive Secretary of the Toronto office in the 1930s. Since the original series included correspondence addressed to Solkin’s successors, it is possible that Solkin’s files were inherited by them, used and/or added to: by Mandel Kraicer in the 1940s, Dan Drutz in the 1950s and Louis Poch in the 1960s and 1970s.
Scope and Content
Series consists of subject files relating to a variety of JIAS functions and relations with other organizations, along with reports and published documents, dating from 1935 to the early 1960s.
Access Restriction
Partially closed. Researchers must receive permission from the OJA Director prior to accessing some of the records.
Arrangement
Series has been created and arranged by the archivist in chronological order. It was formerly a part of a series (MG2 I1a F) called “Executive Director’s reference files” which was a mixture of administrative records, correspondence, subject files, legal documents, and miscellaneous files that have now been separated into different series.

Jack Schwartz was Sylvia Schwartz's uncle, and was married to Minnie Schwartz. Their daughter Jewell owned an art gallery in Yorkville for many years. Jack was in the fur business in Toronto.
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.
Gerald Halbert received his medical degree in 1960 from the University of Toronto. 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.
