This accession consists of records related to the activities of the Pullan and Smith families of Toronto and the Moses family of Sudbury. The records consist of several ledger books including the minutes of the Shaar Hashomayim Synagogue in Sudbury, a financial ledger book belonging to the Cooperative Board of Jewish Charities, as well as the Jewish Ladies' Aid Society account book. Also included is the Shaar Hashomayim Synagogue's constitution and by-laws. There are also receipts, programs, stationary and other items documenting Jewish organizations in Toronto, such as the Menorah Society, the Associated Hebrew Schools, Holy Blossom Temple, and the Jewish Old Folks' Home, and two files of vital records related to the Rosen and Dubrofsky families.
In addition, there are several photographs of particular note, such as four photographs of the Jewish orphanage, both during the period at 218 Simcoe Street and later on Annette Street. There are also two early photographs of the U of T Menorah Society executive.
These records were in the custody of Susan Moses, the granddaughter of Elias Pullan and Hascal Moses.
