Admin History/Bio
From 1921 to 1978, the Zionist Organization of Canada acted as the official voice of Zionism in Canada. The largest of the ZOC regions was the Central Region consisting of Ontario. Virtually all organizations, congregations, societies and ideological groupings having a Jewish heritage in Ontario participated in the activities of the Central Region of ZOC.
The Central Region administration mirrored the administration at the national level. It functioned through an Executive, a Regional Council, and various volunteer committees. The Ontario Camps Association provided governance for the summer camps in Ontario co-sponsored by the Zionist Organization of Canada, Hadassah-Wizo and Canadian Young Judaea. Programmes such as the Zionist Book Club, art exhibitions, lunch clubs and other activities have served to promote the ideals of Zionism and foster a stronger sense of Jewish identity among Jews throughout Ontario.
Regional Plenary conferences were held between the National Plenary conventions. This sous-fonds includes records of the 16th to 28th Central Region Conferences held between 1946 and 1968. Representatives from Central Region also participated as delegates to National Conventions and internationally in the World Zionist Congress.
Scope and Content
The Central Region sous-fonds documents the activities of the Zionist Organization of Canada at the regional level. While the records cover the period between 1934 to 1978, the bulk of the records date from after 1960. As well as textual records and photographs, the sous-fonds includes films (and a video transfer of the films) of camp activities at Camp Solelim in 1974.
The sous-fonds is organized into 7 series: records of the Ontario Camps Association (1961-1978); auditor's reports prepared for the Central Region Treasury Board (1944-1970); records relating to the Zionist Book Club (1962-1978); Young Judaea (1955-1968); correspondence with community representatives (1965-1967); Central Region conferences (1946-1968); and, the Central Region administration's subject files (1952-1978).
Notes
Physical description note: Includes 353 photographs, 3 film reels (Super 8 mm), and 1 videocassette (VHS).
Access Restriction
Partially closed. Researchers must receive permission from the OJA Director prior to accessing some of the records.

Admin History/Bio
Benjamin Brown (ca. 1888-1974) was the first practicing Jewish architect in Toronto. Born in what is now Lithuania, he arrived in Toronto at an early age and soon after, quit school to take a job in a garment manufacturing factory to help out his impoverished family. Not finding this career to his liking, Brown enrolled in the Ontario School of Art and Design with the intention of becoming an artist. When this profession proved financially unfeasible, Brown decided to pursue a career in architecture. After completing his high school equivalency, he enrolled in the University of Toronto architectural program, graduating in 1913. Soon after, Brown opened up a practice with fellow architect Robert McConnell, which lasted until the early 1920s. After the partnership ended, Brown set up an independent practice, which he maintained until his retirement in 1955.
Scope and Content
The fonds documents Brown’s design work and renovations of existing buildings through his original drawings, renderings, and building blueprints. The fonds consists of approximately 1500 drawings that are organized into about 150 projects. These projects include single-family residences, apartment buildings, commercial and industrial buildings, as well as synagogue and other community buildings. Many of Brown's buildings were designed in the Art Deco style, with some containing Georgian, Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Tudor and Romanesque elements.
Brown's most important commissions include the Beth Jacob Synagogue located on Henry Street, which was one the largest synagogues in Toronto, and the Balfour Building, an office tower built in the Art Deco style. The designs of Mendel Granatstein’s mansion, which contained a retractable roof for Sukkoth, and a colour sketch of the Primrose Club, which is currently the University of Toronto Faculty Club, may also be of interest to researchers. The fonds also includes some of Brown's files containing articles and illustrations from architecture and design journals of the early twentieth century, which he used as a resource to assist him with his work.
Fonds includes six photographs, one of the Balfour Building, one of Cumberland Hall, and four of Brown as a young man.
Notes
Architectural plans of a lead mine in Burnt River Ontario have been sent to the Kawartha Lakes Archives.

Date

Physical Description
174 architectural drawings
Scope and Content
Series consists of Benjamin Brown’s architectural plans and drawings of significant buildings designed or renovated for Toronto‘s Jewish community, including proposals that were never implemented. Contained within are renovation plans of the Beach Hebrew Institute synagogue, an ark design for the McCaul Street Synagogue, and the complete designs of the Henry Street Synagogue. The last of these projects is of particular significance, because it was the first synagogue in Toronto designed by a Jewish architect and was one of Brown‘s largest commissions. Drawings of the Primrose Club (a Jewish men’s club) and the Brunswick Talmud Torah Day School, as well as plans of Camp Yungvelt (a Jewish summer camp) are also included. Additionally, several preliminary sketches of synagogue facades are contained within.
The majority of these drawings are on tracing or drafting paper, several of which are in colour, and the remainder are either blueprints or drawn on cardboard. Floor plans, elevations, sections, foundation plans and sketches of building exterior facades and interiors are included. Additionally, there are drawings of windows, doors and synagogue arks.
Physical Condition
Several drawings and plans are in poor condition. See file level descriptions for further details.
