Admin History/Bio
UJA Federation’s Walk with Israel was first held in May 1970, when it was called the UJA Walkathon. The first Walk was organized quickly with no advance publicity, yet it still raised $55,000. In the early years, funds raised in the Walk went into UJA’s Israel Special Fund. Since then, the money has supported particular projects in Israel that often involve children, since children are the main fundraisers in the event. The Walk with Israel has grown into the largest event in the Toronto Jewish community, with over 20,000 people participating as volunteers or walkers, and funds raised reaching as high as $400,000. The event has had several name changes since 1970: Walk for Israel (1978-1993); Community March for Israel (1994-1996); Israel Funwalk (1998-2002); and the current name, Walk with Israel.
The Walk with Israel is one of the programs mounted by the Annual Campaign department of UJA Federation. It is planned by a Cabinet Committee, with one or two laypeople as chairs, and numerous sub-committees. The main UJA staff undertaking the planning and execution is the Walk Coordinator. Each year, sub-committees are formed for recruitment, logistics, marketing and public relations, the Festival, food, entertainment, etc. The Walk also involves many outside entities: companies approached for prizes, donations or sponsorship; entertainment groups; the Toronto police force, which provides traffic control, marshalling and a parade permit; city government, for park use permits and outdoor signage; community groups mounting displays; costumed character rental companies; and manufacturers of the t-shirts, hats and buttons produced each year for Walk participants.
In addition to being a major fundraiser, the Walk fashioned itself initially as a fitness challenge to children and athletes, with a route as long as 31 kilometres in 1976. Over the years, this length has been reduced significantly, with the event evolving into a more manageable and family-oriented event. In the last decade, with periods of tension overseas, it has been framed as a demonstration of solidarity with Israel. Alongside the main event, alternative fundraisers such as a large Raffle, Dance-a-thon, Aerob-a-thon and Learn-a-thon for Eitz Chaim day schools, have been held in some years to encourage more people to contribute. Incentives for those who collect sponsors have grown over the years, from free t-shirts to a succession of prizes depending on the amount of funds raised. The grand prize draw for many years was two El Al airline tickets to Israel.
The location of the Walk has moved from the Bathurst Street 'corridor' of the Jewish community, to a downtown route that for some years went through the historic Jewish neighbourhood of Kensington Market and more recently, begins and ends at Coronation Park by the lakeshore and winds around the downtown streets. There is now also a kick-off party at the Walk’s starting point. Since 1984, the Walk has culminated in a big festival, featuring rides, petting zoos, a barbecue, musical entertainment, clowns and other attractions. This was usually held in a park or the BJCC parking lot. When the Walk route moved downtown, the Festival shifted to Ontario Place, and more recently, it has taken place on the CNE grounds by the lakeshore. Since 2007, the Festival has been sponsored by RioCan, and 'yogen fruz' became a major sponsor of the Walk in 2008. Other Walk sponsors have included Roots Canada (supplier of t-shirts), Shopper’s Drug Mart, Henry’s camera centre, Canada Trust, National Bank Financial Group, and the Canadian Zionist Federation.
Scope and Content
Sub-series contains records that document the planning and coordination of the Walk for Israel each year, as well as photographs and other records from the day itself and post-walk evaluation and wrap-up activities. The records include meeting notices, agendas and minutes, information sheets, lists, schedules, sitemaps, correspondence, school presentations, permits, press releases, design work, invoices, flyers, and photographs. Materials distibuted to participants include walker passports that had to be verified at each checkpoint, sponsor books, collection envelopes, tickets and other ephemera.
Most of the records have been arranged by year, broken down by function, in the following order: Walk oversight (the Walk Committee and chairs); recruitment of participants; volunteers; logistics such as route and police/security coverage; publicity and public relations, design of memorabilia (i.e. hats); sponsorship and prizes; financial management; the Walk event itself; the Festival; related fundraisers, particularly the Eitz Chaim Day Schools Learnathon; and post-event evaluation. The Festival records document the planning of food, entertainment, displays, amusements, and volunteers, and include photographs taken on the day of the event.
Sub-series 17-1 also includes individual files containing photographs from ranges of years. These were added to this series after the major portion of the "Walk" records had already been processed.

Admin History/Bio
The theme of the 1991 Walk for Israel, held on Sunday, June 2, was "Operation Exodus: The Journey Home." This corresponded to UJA Federation's campaign that year. The goal of the Walk was to raise enough money for 500 Russian Jews (two planeloads) to make Aliyah to Israel. Each of the eight checkpoints portrayed a different theme or "step" to freedom: "invitation to freedom," "permission to freedom," "flight to freedom," etc. Great effort was made to expand recruitment from the traditional children who participated, to reach parents and other adults from UJA's divisions. The chairs of the Walk were David William Brown and David Engel, and the UJA staff coordinator was Avrum Rosensweig. Sponsors included Shopper's Drug Mart, Spring Valley spring water, Beatrice Foods, and Meadowvale Security. There were 8500 participants this year, but only 2700 of these collected any sponsors, a fact that highlights a longstanding problem facing the Walk Committee. After the event, expenditures were estimated at $23,000 and revenue (from the Festival) at $14,000. The difference was made up by UJA.
The Festival in 1991 was called "The Journey Home: Sharing Our Ethnicity" and it focussed on the multi-culturalism in the Toronto Jewish community. This year, the Festival was re-visioned as a family picnic type of event rather than the expansive carnival atmosphere of previous years. The staff coordinator of the Festival was Mark Freedman, and the lay chairs were Judy Engel and Judy Shulman. The Festival included arts and crafts, puppets, storytellers, games, pony rides and a petting zoo. There was also a varied line-up of performers and musicians, and an "Israeli cafe" food experience.

The theme of the 1992 Walk for Israel was "From Toronto to the Heart of Our Homeland." This Jerusalem-centred theme was selected because the day of the walk, Sunday May 31st, coincided with the 25th anniversary of Jerusalem's reunification, hence the festival held this year was named the 'Yom Yerushalayim Celebration.' The Walk was chaired by Judy Engel and Judy Shulman, and coordinated by UJA Federation staff member Pearl Gropper. The Yom Yerushalayim Celebration was first to be held at Earl Bales Park until logistical difficulties necessitated a change to the northern JCC/Lipa Green Building area. The Celebration was chaired by Moishe and Jodi Gottesman. As in the past three years, the checkpoints along the route were run by affiliates of UJA.

The 1993 Walk for Israel was held on Monday, May 24. Its informal slogan was "$45 for 45 Years," in recognition of Israel's 45th anniversary. Participants who raised the minimum of $45 received a free t-shirt. The t-shirts for the event had a different slogan than "$45 for 45 Years"; they read, "Building Our Community Together." When participants handed in their funds before the event, they were also eligible for other prizes including roller blades, Blue Jays' tickets and bicycles. Over 6,000 people took part in the Walk and over $150,000 were raised.
The 1993 Walk was co-chaired by Judy Engel and Alan Winer and coordinated by UJA staff person Ronit Climan. The route started in Earl Bales Park, went south to Wilson and over to Avenue Road, then south to Eglinton, back to Bathurst via Chaplin Crescent, then north on Bathurst to the Festival at the Bathurst JCC.
This year, the Walk was supplemented by other "athons": a dance-a-thon for youth co-sponsored by BBYO and the Walk and an aerobathon organized by the JCC and the Walk. The aerobathon drew 40 participants. Additionally, as in years past, students at the Eitz Chaim Day School held a Learnathon, which raised $18,000.

The files are arranged by function, in this order: Walk oversight (the Cabinet Committee and chairs), recruitment and incentives, logistics, publicity and design, sponsorship, the Walk event itself, the Festival and post-event evaluation.

Admin History/Bio
In 1997, the March for Israel reverted to its traditional name, the Walk for Israel. The slogan was "Steppin' Out for Israel" and the event took place on Sunday, May 25th. Its chair was Carole Sterling and for the first time, there were three UJA staff coordinators: Silvia Astrug, Naomi Lasky and Karen Worb. The Festival was chaired by Marcy Kroach and Gilda Niman. The route was the same as in the past several years, beginning at the Promenade Shopping Centre and going south to the North York Centennial Arena where the Festival was held. In addition, a second route was introduced, a much shorter one that started later in the day to allow more people to participate; it led from the BJCC north to the Arena on Finch Avenue.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series contains textual records and photographs from the 1997 Walk for Israel, the Festival and the Learnathon. There is also a hat from the Walk. The files are arranged by function, in this order: Walk oversight (the Cabinet Committee and chairs), recruitment of participants and staff volunteers, logistics, publicity and design, corporate sponsorship, finances, the Walk event itself, the Festival, related fundraisers and follow-up.

In 2002, reacting to the recent wave of violence in Israel, the Walk was renamed the Walk with Israel to underline that it was an act of community solidarity. With a new slogan, "Now. More Than Ever," the Walk was scheduled for May 20, 2002. The money raised went towards helping children affected by the crisis in Israel. The chairs were Abe Glowinsky and Elyza Polsky, with Coordinator Naomi Cohen and Administrator Cindy Bogach. Special guests were Mayor Mel Lastman, Israeli Consul-General Meir Romen and Ra'anin Gissin, key advisor and principal spokesperson for Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon. Gissin gave the keynote speech at the Festival.
In addition to the usual sub-committees, there was a new one: School Projects. These were artistic menorahs created by each school that were displayed at the Festival. Once again, the 5 kilometre adult Fun Run took place. A new route this year took participants in a loop from the Sky Dome, north and across Nassau/Cecil/Elm streets, then south again on Bay Street to the Sky Dome, where the Festival was held. The Festival featured attractions from MEGA (Mandell Entertainment Group Amusements) such as 'inflatables', as well as an Israeli-style shuk (open air market). A record crowd of almost 25,000 people turned out.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series contains photographs, a small amount of textual records, a promotional video and a t-shirt from the Israel Funwalk of 2001. The records include a promotional brochure and the organizational material distributed to participants (sponsor sheet, collection envelope and information pamphlet).
Notes
Physical description note: Includes 890 photographs (747 negatives), 1 videocassette and 1 t-shirt.

In 2005, the Walk with Israel introduced its first-ever mascot. A city-wide competition to name the lion brought in 250 suggestions from children; the winning name was Arr-yeah, a combination of a cheer and the Hebrew word for lion, "aryeh." Close to 15,000 people, including 800 volunteers, turned out for the event on Sunday, May 29th. There were four co-chairs this year: Beth Singer, Nelly Zagdanski, Sara Zagdanksi and Felicia Posluns. Mike "Pinball" Clemens of the Toronto Argonauts appeared at the kick-off party, and the crowd was led by Police Chief Bill Blair. The 6 kilometre downtown route began at Coronation Park near the gates to the C.N.E., and ended up at Ontario Place for the RioCan Festival.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series contains photographs of Arr-yeah the lion mascot and electronic versions of the banners made for the event. It also includes a DVD and video version of the promotional video shown in schools.

Admin History/Bio
The 2007 Walk with Israel was held on Sunday, May 27th. It started with a kick-off party in Coronation Park by the waterfront, which featured inflatables and music. Prominent attendees were Federal Liberal leader Stéphane Dion, Environment Minister John Baird and more than 20 other elected officials. The Walk was co-chaired by Ruth Eckstein and Helen Silverstein. The largest incentive for those raising money was to be a "chai walker": if one raised $1800, one had the choice of a $500 prize and was invited onstage during the kick-off party. With a threatening weather forecast, only 7,000 people came out. The fundraising cause was a new daycare centre in northern Israel and providing employment training to Ethiopian women in a community near Tel Aviv.
At the end of the 10 kilometre route, people enjoyed the kosher barbecue, games, rides and arts and crafts at the RioCan Carnival at Ontario Place.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series consists of a recruitment video and two t-shirts from the 2007 Walk with Israel. One t-shirt is white and the other, for volunteers, is red. The t-shirts read "Heart and Sole!"
