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 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.

Admin History/Bio
With the post-WW II expansion of Toronto's Jewish population, the original Mount Sinai Hospital on Yorkville Avenue became overcrowded, while its treatment capacities appeared ever more outdated. By 1949 an improved economy made it possible to begin the necessary planning for a much large replacement hospital at 550 University Ave. Although fundraising for the construction this facility was not the responsibility of the United Jewish Welfare Fund, many of its senior executives were also on the Hospital Board. Also, the entire Toronto Jewish Community was to be canvassed for the funds to build it. The proven fundraising expertise of the UJWF, its donor lists, and the goals of its own annual campaign ensured that constant correspondence and cooperation between the two was both necessary for success and vital to the avoidance of campaign competition. The continued success and growth of community contributions to both was the outcome of this ongoing collaboration. The New Mount Sinai Hospital opened in mid-1953, while the campaigns to continue improving and expanding its resources continue to the present.
Scope and Content
Series consists of correspondence and occasional reports documenting the relationship between the UJWF and the Board of the New Mount Sinai Hospital about the fundraising campaigns for the new hospital being constructed on Univeristy Avenue during the 1950's. Also included are two photographs of the new hospital. Files in this sub-series have been arranged chronologically.

With the post-Second World War expansion of Toronto's Jewish population, the original Jewish Home for the Aged on Cecil St. had become totally outmode in size and treament capability. By 1949 an expanding economy made it possible to begin the necessary planning for a much larger replacement facility which included the Baycrest Hospital, at 3560 Bathurst St. in North York. The sod-turning ceremony occurred on June 7, 1951. Although fundraising for the construction this facility was not the responsibility of the United Jewish Welfare Fund, the entire Toronto Jewish Community was to be canvassed for the funds to build it. The proven fundraising expertise of the UJWF, its donor lists, and the goals of its own annual campaign ensured that constant correspondence and cooperation between the campaigns was both necessary for success and vital to the avoidance of campaign competition. The continued success and growth of community contributions to all was the outcome of this ongoing collaboration.
