Admin History/Bio
The BJE was responsible for recruiting, hiring and dismissing teachers and principals at the request of the various schools, for setting codes of practice, and for establishing salary scales in accordance with provincial standards. As such, it was the responsibility of the executive director to perform these tasks and maintain the appropriate files. The executive director worked closely with the Jewish Teacher’s Alliance, which represented the teachers, specifically when dealing with salary, pension and discipline issues. The Personnel Committee was often consulted on matters of importance and for making procedural and other decisions on topics such as personnel budgeting, grievances or other problem cases, and when dealing with the Jewish Teacher’s Alliance. Any teacher appointed to a school had to be made in consultation with and approved by the BJE. This procedure had been in place since the BJE’s founding in 1950 until the late 1970s or early 1980s.
Scope and Content
The series contains teacher personnel records, organized alphabetically by the teacher's name. The files include resumes and teacher applications; employment records indicating affiliated school, salary, days absent and other administrative information; BJE questionnaires; information on work visas and related government requirements; correspondence to and from the BJE Executive Director regarding performance, special citations or awards, and school placements; letters of reference from past employers; and on occasion, grievance letters to the UJWF, BJE Executive Director and BJE Personnel Committee.
There are also several files documenting the recruitment of Israeli teachers for schools in Toronto, which include applications and resumes, correspondence between the BJE Executive Director and the Jewish schools in Toronto, as well as representatives of the Jewish Agency and other organizations in Israel.
Access Restriction
Closed. Researchers must receive permission from the OJA Director prior to accessing the records.

Camp Biluim was founded in 1961 under the auspices of the Zionist Organization of Canada as a national leadership training institute for Canadian youth. Originally located in Huntsville Ontario, the camp moved to Mont Tremblant, Quebec, in 1976, where it shared its land and facilities with Camp Kinneret, another ZOC-owned summer camp. The purpose of the camp was to provide practical and transferable leadership training to slightly older Canadian Jewish youths, most of whom were members of Young Judaea. Many Camp Biluim graduates later returned to ZOC summer camps as counsellors or found senior administrative positions in Canadian Young Judaea.
Camp Biluim was administered by the National Camps Association in conjunction with the regional committee, although daily operation and staffing of the summer camp was provided by Canadian Young Judaea. The camp still exists today under the full administrative operation of Canadian Young Judaea.
Scope and Content
The sub-series consists of files created between 1968 and 1971. These files include Camp Biluim Committee meeting minutes and reports, executive correspondence, financial records, staffing records, press and publicity records and several photographs of the camp's waterfront.

Camp Hatikvah was founded in 1956 by the Zionist Organization of Canada as a summer camp for Jewish youth between the ages of 9 and 13.

In 1979, ZOC transfered the land title to the Vancouver community's Camp Hatikvah Foundation, which has been in charge of operating the camp ever since.
