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.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series contains textual records, photographs, and a t-shirt, hat, and pair of shoelaces from the 1991 Walk for Israel. The files are arranged by function, in this order: Walk oversight (the Cabinet Committee and chairs), recruitment of participants and volunteers, logistics, publicity and design, sponsorship and prizes, finances, the Walk event itself, the Festival and post-event evaluation.

Admin History/Bio
Superseding the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies, the first Annual Campaign of the new United Jewish Welfare Fund took place in 1938. It combined the appeals of 37 organizations into one, eliminating much of the inefficiency and competition of the previous twenty years. Money raised was for agencies and causes new and traditional, local and overseas. Recipients included; the Jewish Immigrant Aid Services, Canadian Jewish Congress, the United Jewish Relief Agencies, the Joint Distribution Committee, and Palestine. In 1938, Campaign could be completed within a mere two weeks and raised $161,000. This figure rose to $348,000 in 1942 and surpassed one million dollars in 1951. When the State of Israel was established in 1948, Campaign was combined with the CJC and the United Palestine appeals into a new, combined campaign and re-named The United Jewish Appeal (UJA).
With different local and world challenges and crises over time, annual campaigns have had a variety of foci: for example, the plight of Displaced Persons in Europe after the Second World War; the 1957 Rescue Campaign for refugees in Russia, Europe and North Africa; the first Emergency Campaign in 1967 in response to the Six Days’ War; and Operation Exodus 1990-1991, which raised funds to aid Soviet Jews.
Early Campaign leadership was provided by lay people. Chairmen of the Campaign Cabinet included Samuel Godfrey, Ben Sadowski, Samuel J. Granatstein, Bernard Vise, Morris S. Till, and Samuel J. Zacks. A small administration committee carried out daily operations, but the bulk of the fundraising work was performed by the Service Council, a group of volunteers who planned, canvassed and evaluated each campaign, as well as organizing educational programs and public meetings. A Women’s Service Council and a Young Peoples’ Service Council also played key fundraising roles.
Canvassing was conducted by volunteers from each professional or trade Division, such as doctors, lawyers, retail sales, etc. The volunteers were responsible for canvassing the members of their own group. A special Women’s Campaign had its own chair, sub-committees and programming. Divisions were further added to reflect the amounts of donations, Top Gifts, and Major Gifts for example. By the 1980s, the Service Councils had given way to professional Campaign Associates employed by UJWF. With further changes to UJWF/UJA Federation’s structure, Campaign first fell under the Financial Resource Development Department, then Integrated Development, and, in 2009, the Centre for Philanthropy. It is now supported by the Donor Relations Management, Donor Research, and Missions/VIP departments which cater to the diverse interests of individual donors.
Through the 1940s and 1950s, face-to-face canvassing was the norm, with donor’s names and gifts published in the UJWF annual report. By the 1960s, an expanding community and a need for efficiency increased the use of the telephone, with regular telethons involving hundreds of volunteers. In 1970, a regular springtime Walk with Israel was included within the rest of Campaign events. In the 21st Century, the internet is used to solicit donations, publicize campaign news and events, and register volunteers for telethons and events like the Walk.
Scope and Content
Series consists of two sub-series, Walk with Israel (sub-series 17-1) and General Campaign Records (sub-series 17-2).

Admin History/Bio
In 1977, the 8th annual UJA Walkathon was part of the UJA of Metropolitan Toronto's Maccabiah '77 games. The Maccabiah is a "Jewish Olympics" that offers Jewish athletes a premier opportunity to compete and, more generally, encourages the community to participate in a day of sports and activity. The games were first held in Toronto in 1970. For Maccabiah '77, the Walk took place alongside a fundraising run for UJA-B'nai Brith and a YM-YWHA Swimathon. One feature of this Walk were amateur radio stations set up at the checkpoints for walkers to send out messages. The route took participants from Baycrest Centre, downtown to the Bloor JCC, then north to Bathurst and Sheppard.

Admin History/Bio
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.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series contains textual records, photographs, design products and a t-shirt for the 1992 Walk for Israel and the Yom Yerushalayim Celebration. The files are arranged by function, in this order: Walk oversight (the Cabinet Committee and chairs), recruitment of participants and volunteers, logistics, publicity and design, sponsorship and prizes, the Walk event itself, the Festival and post-event evaluation.

Expenses of the 1992 Walk (from July 1991 to June 1992) are in a report in Series 17-1-19, file 18 (1993).
