Admin History/Bio
United Jewish Welfare Fund's annual general meeting is the annual gathering of general delegates and members of the UJA Federation Council. In general, the Annual Meeting is adjourned after the introductory speeches, then the Council convenes for its meeting, adjourns and the Annual Meeting is re-convened. The Council is made up of delegates representing synagogues, agencies, schools, communal organizations, societies and landsmenshaften of the Toronto community. It is responsible for electing the Federation President, Governors and directors of UJA Federation, as well as appointing auditors, introducing and approving the by-laws of UJA Federation/UJWF. Until 2005, the AGM included the presentation of the Shem Tov volunteer recognition awards, the Leadership Development Awards, the Ben Sadowski Award of Merit for outstanding volunteer contributions, and beginning in 1997, the Phil Granovsky Award for Campaign Excellence. The AGM was usually followed by a reception.
Starting in 1975, when the merger of CJC's Central Region and UJWF was initiated, there continued to be multiple annual meetings for the organizations that today are encompassed by the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto. In the second half of the 1970s, during the interim period before the adoption of a constitution for the new Toronto Jewish Congress, CJC and UJWF, though they began to have joint meetings and programs, continued to operate separately with separate executives. Once the establishment of TJC was finalized, UJWF "ceas[ed] to exist as a functional community organization" but remained as a "wholly owned subsidiary" of TJC. UJWF remained a legal entity and a partner in the United Jewish Appeal campaign, and was separate insofar as it produced its own financial reports and held its own annual meetings. Similarly, the UJA, as a program of UJWF, held its own annual meetings.
Scope and Content
Series consists of meeting agendas, minutes, programmes, speeches, delegate and nominee lists, correspondence and audio recordings of annual meetings of the United Jewish Welfare Fund/Toronto Jewish Congress/Jewish Federation of Greater Toronto/UJA Federation from 1939 to 2009, and photographs from annual meetings and awards receptions from 1978 to 2004.

Scope and Content
Accession consists of two scanned photographs of work scene in front of the Myer Salit Scrap Metal yard, Niagara Falls.
Custodial History
The records were transferred to the OJA as part of the Ontario Small Jewish Communities initiative.
Administrative History
The donor, Larry Cohen, was born 1931. His grandfather, Myer Salit, was born in Brest Litovski, Poland. At the age of twenty-three he booked passage to America on the S.S. Norge. On June 28, 1904 the ship struck a reef off the coast of Scotland and sank. Mr. Salit survived, along with approximately 160 other passengers, and made his way to New York and then St. Catharines, where his brother-in-law, Harry Rubin, was a scrap metal dealer. In 1905 he moved to Niagara Falls and set up his own scrap metal business. He was the first Jewish resident of that community.
Over time, the business prospered and grew. After the Second World War, his son-in-law Irvin Feldman and grandson Larry Cohen joined the business. The company began to diversify, selling new and used steel products to local industry. Myer Salit passed away in 1958 and left the business in the hands of Irvin and Larry. By the 1960s, the company branched out and became a reinforcing steel (rebar) fabricator and changed its name to Salit Steel.
During the 1980s the family sold off the scrap metal division of the company. Mr. Feldman retired and the responsibility for managing the firm was shared by Larry Cohen and Steven Cohen, Myer's great-grandson. The company has continued to expand and diversify and currently serves the needs of Southern Ontario.

Joe Roseman's parents, Bessie Baranski and David Roseman, came to Canada separately from Poland in 1918. Bessie had siblings already in Ontario: her sister Channah and brother-in-law Charles Glass, living in Kitchener at the time; brother Gordon; and brother Joe. All three brothers worked in second hand furniture and eventually switched to new furniture. They Anglicized the family name from Baranski to Brown. Settling in Kitchener by 1920, David Roseman had a job running the tuck shop at McBrine Baggage. By 1922 he had joined his brother-in-law Charles Glass in his store, Central Furniture on King Street East. David's wife Bessie helped deliver furniture until her brother Joe came on. Joe died in 1945 after being hit by a car in front of the store. David and Bessie had five children: Samuel, Esther (who married Sam Moldaver), Max, Ruth (married Henry Katz of Hamilton) and Joe. Samuel served and was killed in action in the Second World War. Joe began working at the furniture business in his second year of high school (1938) and stayed there until 1962 with his father retired and the business was sold. After this, Joe's brother Max opened his own store in Brantford; Joe opened one in Stratford; and Sam remained in Kitchener, opening his own small furniture store next to the original Central Furniture.

They had five children: Lean, Sarah (Seddy; Norman's mother), Eva, Morris, and Shana. Around the same time Ben and Sarah Springer arrived in Belleville. They had four children: Fanny, Samuel (Norman's father), Jenny, and Charles.
Samuel and Seddy met in Sandbanks (near Picton) on holidays in the 1920s. They lived in Belleville for two years and then moved to Kingston in 1934/35. Sam had a strong affiliation with Belleville; he ran the Artistic Ladies’ Wear clothing store (taken over by Julius and Jenny Abramsky) in town. Later he swapped clothing stores with his brother-in-law (Abramsky) because the women wanted to be close to their families (Jenny Abramsky was originally from Belleville).
Norman's maternal grandfather, Ben Palmer, was very involved with the synagogue in Kingston, serving on the 1910 building committee. Sam was a business leader in Kingston and was also involved in Jewish activities and committees. He was the sole building chairman in charge of building the new synagogue in Kingston. His son, Jerry, and grandson, Ryan, were the committee chairs when the Robinson wing was built. Norm and his son Douglas (grandson) were chairs on the Otterburn House (Hillel) committee when major renovations were needed to it.

Administrative History
Sheila Kastner was born in Cornwall, Ontario in 1928, the same year her family moved there. Her father, Jacob Wolf Kastner, was born in the 1870s in Bukavina which was then part of Austria. He came to Canada in 1901. Sheila's mother was Tilla Brucer, born in 1895 in Rumania. She met and married Jacob in Montreal in 1923. Kastner's Clothing Store was originally located in what had been a house, on Pitt Street. The family lived behind the premises. Sheila's mother then rented a better location at 100 Pitt Street, as well as a house at 11 Augustus Street for the family. In 1939 the Kastners moved to Montreal. They moved four times there and had three stores. In 1942 her mother Tilla left her husband to return to Cornwall, accompanied by 14-year-old Sheila. After high school, Sheila went to Carleton College to study journalism. She married and had a child, which interrupted her degree. She and her husband moved to Cornwall and ran the successful men's and boy's clothing store Tilla had created, T. Kastner Limited, until they sold it in 1968. The new owners retained the respected name of Kastner and the store is still in business nearly seventy years later at 27 First Street East.

Administrative History
Benjamin Gorbach was born in Kiev, Russia in 1885, one of 13 children.

With his name changed to Gorbet, Benjamin met Russian-born Pearl Rudnitsky (b. 1890) and they married in 1909. Three children, Harry, Reuben and Bess, were born in Toronto. Reuben died tragically in a bathtub accident. Following an adventurous but unsuccessful attempt to make a living as farmers outside the city, the family returned to Toronto, where their son Frank was born. Previously, Gorbet had studied to be a furrier in New York, and when the couple moved to Owen Sound in 1919, he established Gorbet's Furs. Two more sons and a daughter, Avraham (Abe), Norman and Taubyl, were born in Owen Sound. Benjamin died at his home in 1955 at the age of 70. His wife, affectionately known as “Mom Gorbet” lived on in the community for 13 years.

Administrative History
Nachman (Nathan) Gittelmacher was born in Kiev, Ukraine in 1898, the son of Shloima and Mattie Gittelmacher. Suffering terribly during the pogroms of 1918 and 1920, he fled from place to place and then emigrated to Canada in 1921. Trained as a photographer in Europe, he opened his own photography studio in Toronto in 1922, called Elite Studios. First located at 513 Queen Street West, he soon moved to 615 Queen Street West. Nathan serviced a largely Jewish clientele, photographing weddings, bar mitzvahs, as well as Jewish community events.
Nathan was married to Nina Sokoloff and they had three sons and a daughter: Louis (Lou), Albert (Al), Jack, and Ruth.
During the early 1940s, the family legally changed their name from Gittelmacher to Gilbert and subsequently altered the name of the business to Gilbert Studios. When Nathan retired, Al, who had been working there since a young age, took over the business and under his management it thrived. In order to accommodate his growing clientele, he moved the studio to Eglinton Avenue and later to 170 Davenport Road, where it is situated today.
