Admin History/Bio
As early as 1916 the Ezras Noshem Society (a mutual benefit society for Jewish women) started to raise funds to purchase and renovate what would become The Toronto Jewish Old Folks' Home (Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care’s forerunner) after its members recognized the need for a home in Toronto where the Jewish elderly could receive kosher meals and communicate with staff in their own language. Property at 31 Cecil Street was purchased in 1917 and sometime between September 1918 and January 1920 the Home officially opened there. The Home was run by a small staff and the women of Ezras Noshem who volunteered their time to make beds, cook kosher meals, do laundry and sponsor fundraising events. By 1938 the Home had expanded into its neighboring houses at 29, 33, and 35 Cecil Street and was caring for 115 residents. It provided residents with synagogue services, a hospital ward and social activities. At this time the Home also became a member of the United Jewish Welfare Fund.
In 1946, the need for a larger and more modern building prompted a fundraising campaign, which was headed by Abe Posluns, to purchase and build a new facility. In December 1954, the new building opened at 3650 Bathurst Street and consisted of two new institutions: The Jewish Home for the Aged and Baycrest Hospital. This location continued to expand over the years, including a new building for residents in 1968, an apartment building for seniors called the Baycrest Terrace in 1976, and a community centre known as The Joseph E. and Minnie Wagman Centre in 1977. These additions enabled Baycrest to expand its programs to include a day care program, recreational programs, and a Sheltered Workshop which was run in cooperation with the Jewish Vocational Service and provided residents with employment. In 1986 a new Baycrest Hospital was erected, and in 1989, the Rotman Research Institute, which is also affiliated with the University of Toronto, opened to create a research facility where top researchers could study and find new treatment methods for the elderly.
In recent years, Baycrest’s services and programs have continued to expand. In 2000, the Apotex Centre, the Jewish Home for the Aged and the Louis and Leah Posluns Centre for Stroke and Cognition opened to help residents with progressive dementia caused by vascular disorders. In 2001 a condominium building opened at 2 Neptune Drive for seniors, and in 2003 the Sam and Ida Ross Memory Clinic was established to provide out-patient services for seniors with memory disorders. Baycrest Centre also provides numerous cultural and religious programs for the inhabitants and the greater community, including a heritage museum, art exhibits and a Holocaust program.

Scope and Content
The series consists of BJE committee meeting minutes and reports, memoranda, and correspondence filed in chronological order. The minutes are primarily from the BJE Board of Directors, and the memoranda and correspondence were created primarily by the executive director, for BJE staff and the affiliated schools. However, the series also includes correspondence and memoranda issued by other professional staff, and by the chairman of the BJE board.
The records in this series duplicate to some extent records found in other series, but weeding of the files is made difficult by their organization, with records relating to different committees and activities filed together. These files were apparently maintained by BJE staff -- usually in 3-ring binders -- as an ongoing record of current work.

Admin History/Bio
The Ontario Camps Association was established by the Zionist Organization of Canada as a regional administrative body reponsible for overseeing the operation of the ZOC-owned summer camps in Ontario. The Regional Executive Vice-President was in charge of supervising the Ontario Camps Association which also included the Ontario Zionist Region Committee on Camping. In addition to being charged with the general maintenence, upkeep, and operation of the Ontario camps, the Ontario Camps Association was also responsible for implementing the standards and guidelines set forth by the National Camps Association.
The Ontario Camps Association oversaw the operation of three camps in Ontario: Camp Shalom, Camp Solelim, and Camp Massad. Responsibility for Camp Biluim was shared by the Ontario Camps Association and the National Camps Association. Although it was located in the Ontario region, it was a leadership training institute and thus of national significance.
Scope and Content
The series is organized into 5 sub-series, containing records relating to the administrative functions of the Camps Association and the Ontario Zionist Region Committee on Camping (1965-1968), and to the summer camps under its governance: Camp Biluim (1963-1967); Camp Massad (1957-1970); Camp Shalom (1965-1978); and Camp Solelim (1965, 1974). The Camp Solelim sub-series also contains three Super 8 film reels depicting camp activities, and a videocassette transfer of these film reels created by the archives in 2003.

Admin History/Bio
Young Judaea is a national Zionist youth movement for Canadian youth founded in 1909 by members of the Herzl Zion Club. It is committed to instilling Jewish values, fostering a sense of Jewish identity and a lifelong commitment to Israel among Jewish Canadian youth. This is achieved through the regional administration and operation of summer camps and a leadership training institute, conventions, conferences and local chapter clubs.
In order to foster a closer connection to Israel, Canadian Young Judaea employs Shlichim from Israel who are posted to Jewish communities and to offices at the regional level. The Central Region operates 2 summer camps - Camp Solelim and Camp Shalom. It also participates in the operation of Camp Biluim, the national leadership training institute for Canadian Young Judaea.
Scope and Content
The series consists of records concerning the administration of summer camps, membership and programming, minutes of meetings, and correspondence.

Admin History/Bio
In order to operate at the regional level, the Zionist Organization of Canada had to rely on the leadership of committed Zionists living in communities spread across Ontario who reported to the Central Region Office. It was from these communities, outside of Toronto, that delegates to regional conferences and national conventions were recruited. It was also at the local level that much of the fundraising and programming activities occurred.
The community correspondence series of the Central Region was established in order to organize the correspondence that the Central Region received from community groups as well as individuals involved in ZOC activities outside of Toronto. While it is not located geographically within the Central Region, the Community Correspondence series also Includes the correspondence with the Jewish community in Rouyn - Noranda, Quebec. These records are organized alphabetically by community and are in chronological order.
Scope and Content
The series consists of correspondence documenting Zionist activities and events that took place in communities across Ontario. These records also document the Central Office's liaison activities with ZOC members, as well as groups and individuals within the different Ontario communities.

Admin History/Bio
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 remains today under the full operation of Canadian Young Judaea. The purpose of the camp was to provide practical and transferable leadership training to a slightly older group of Jewish Canadian 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 co-administered by the National Camps Association, and during its period in Ontario, the Ontario Camps Association. However, daily operation and staffing of the summer camp was provided by Canadian Young Judaea.
Scope and Content
The sub-series consists of files created between 1963 and 1967, including executive correspondence, programming records, and procedure records.
