Admin History/Bio
The role of the executive director was to oversee the administrative operations of the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A., including staffing and personnel, budgetary activities, maintenance, programming, special events and festival celebrations, membership, community outreach and fundraising activities.
Although a staff position, the executive director was also a member of the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee, as acting secretary. As such, the executive director was responsible for attending and taking the minutes at all committee meetings, and for the collection and maintenance of all official files documenting the activities of the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A., and later, the Jewish Community Centres. The executive director also acted as executive director of the Jewish Camp Council, which operated out of the Bloor and Spadina Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. building.
In the late 1940s, George Horrowitz was the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A.'s executive director, and in 1952, David Andrews succeeded him. Andrews served as executive director until 1976, at which point he became executive vice-president and Martin Park, his former assistant, succeeded him as executive director. Sid Brail became the executive director in 1979.
Scope and Content
This series consists of the records created and collected by the office of the executive director of the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. and the Jewish Community Centre of Toronto. The records include operating files, correspondence, financial records, program material, reports, photographs, course registration ledgers and architectural drawings.
The records are organized alphabetically as subject files, which reflects the original arrangement of the records. The exceptions are the financial reports, the course registration ledgers and the architectural plans, which were maintained separately.
The records have been arranged into the following sub-series: subject files, financial reports, architectural drawings and Y-Arts Council registration ledgers.
Notes
Includes 142 photographs, 41 drawings, 2 artifacts and 2 posters.
Arrangement
As the executive director oversaw operations at both the Bloor and Spadina branch and the northern branch of the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A., the records relating to both branches were filed together. There has been no attempt made to separate the records of the individual branches.

Admin History/Bio
The executive director is responsible for the administration and management of the Board of Jewish Education, including its committees. During the 1950s, the executive director was one of five staff members, along with a school consultant, assistant director (i.e., administrative assistant to the executive director), secretary stenographer, and stenographer. In the 1960s and 1970s, as the Jewish education system in Toronto grew, additional positions were created to assist the executive director, including an associate director, director of school finances, and later, the director of educational technology.
The responsibilities of the executive director have included the supervision of administrative and professional staff, assembling board and committee agendas, planning new projects, recruiting and hiring of new personnel, monitoring the availability of scholarships and bursaries for students pursuing higher Jewish education, consulting with teachers and principals of subsidized schools on such matters as curriculum and professional development, acting as the BJE representative in dealings with government agencies and other organizations, and public relations and education activities like conferences and media interviews. The executive director is an ex officio member of many BJE committees and other organizations, such as the Principals Council.
The executive director liaises with the schools on inter-school activities such as the Bible Contest and Jewish Book Month Contest, works with the Midrasha Board of Governors in the preparation and supervision of its curriculum and budget, consults with staff at the Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto (CHAT), and assists in the administration of the Israel study programs. The executive director has also carried the title of director of CHAT, stemming from the initial founding of the school by the UJWF. This position has involved serving on the board of directors of CHAT, dealing with staff needs, helping determine policies and plans for the school, and reviewing the school's budget and operations. The executive director has been the dean of the Midrasha L'Morim since its establishment in 1953.
Dr. Joseph Diamond was the first executive director of the BJE, serving in this position for 18 years. In 1969, Rabbi Irwin E. Witty became executive director and served in this position for 28 years. In 1997 and 1998, Rabbi Dr. Jeremiah Unterman held the position. In 1999, Dr. Seymour Epstein became executive director of the BJE and, as of 2006, also holds the position of Vice-President for Jewish Education, UJA Federation of Greater Toronto.
Scope and Content
This series documents the executive directors' work with the UJWF Study Committee on Jewish Education in the early 1970s, and with agencies of the municipal, provincial and federal governments to secure funding for Jewish schools. The series also documents the executive director's public relations work on behalf of the BJE, through public speaking engagements and radio programs and the recruitment and hiring of teachers and principals for the various schools. The series contains personal correspondence of Dr. Diamond and Rabbi Witty, which they kept in the BJE's filing system and contain some references to their work as executive director.
The series is organized into four sub-series: Personal correspondence and writings, Government aid to schools, United Jewish Welfare Fund Study Committee on Jewish Education, and Teacher files.

Admin History/Bio
The position of Executive Director was created in the 1936-37 period during which the United Jewish Welfare Fund replaced the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies as Toronto's central Jewish community fundraising organization. The Executive Director always sat on the Executive Committee, sometimes as Secretary, other times as Chair. Most significantly, this person was the senior manager responsible for the day-to-day administration of the activities and responsibilities of the United Jewish Welfare Fund.
The Executive Director was, at certain times, also known as the Executive Vice President. In 2001, new titles were adopted for the lay and professional leaders. The Executive Director was renamed president, while the lay leader formerly titled president became known as the chairman of the board.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of the correspondence and memoranda records of the Executive Directors of the UJWF. Records in this series are divided into five sub-series: correspondence, memoranda, subject files, Jewish Community Centre of Toronto, and Bequest and Endowment Fund.
