Admin History/Bio
The Men’s Service Group (MSG) of the Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care was established in 1956 to assist Baycrest with both its fundraising and public relations activities. It also supplied volunteers to help run programs and services for Baycrest’s residents and patients, and acted as a training ground for future lay leaders of Baycrest. Herbert J. Weiss served as the founding president and was succeeded by Charles A. Grosberg in 1960.
The MSG’s activities included driving residents to events, organizing special outings to the theatre, concerts, or sporting events, planning a monthly Sunday Brunch for residents and patients, assisting with recreational programming at Baycrest, and meeting with organizations across Ontario, such as synagogues and service clubs, to disseminate information about Baycrest. The MSG also planned an annual Family Carnival and picnic for residents and their families and organized a variety of fundraising projects, such as its annual Honour Roll publication, an annual Fun Run (now known as the Baycrest Challenge), a letter and greeting card service, garage sales, and the sale of Yarmulkes made by residents. Today the MSG continues to plan and run many of its early projects and services.

Admin History/Bio
The Men's Service held at least two general meetings each year. The first meeting was typically held in the spring and consisted of the installation of the elected officers and Board of Directors, the presentation of the annual report, and any other necessary business. In 1962, after the MSG established its "Man of the Year" award, the spring meeting often included the presentation of this award as well as other honours and awards. Other meetings were usually held in the fall and winter and often had varied agendas.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of textual and graphic material documenting the planning and implementation of the Men's Service Group's annual and general meetings as well as the selection of award recipients who were honoured at these meetings. Included are invitations, agendas, meeting minutes, meeting notices, programs, speeches, reports, lists, correspondence, financial reports, flyers, a press release, a photograph, and a dinner menu.

The Honour Roll also acts as a public relations tool, informing the public about the activities and new developments at Baycrest. As such, it contains articles describing the programs, events, recipients of the "Man of the Year" award, and other important individuals and initiatives at Baycrest.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of textual records documenting the MSG's planning, fundraising, and publication of the Honour Roll. Included are meeting notices and minutes, reports, correspondence, an invitation, a photograph, and issues of the Honour Roll.

Admin History/Bio
Dr. Alexander Brown (1909-1984) was a leader in the field of Jewish education in Toronto. He held various positions with Toronto’s Board of Jewish Education (BJE) and the Associated Hebrew Schools of Toronto, and was actively involved with other Jewish organizations, such as the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC) and the United Jewish Welfare Fund (UJWF).
Brown was born in the Ukraine on 14 February 1909 to Louis and Bessie Brown. The family immigrated to Canada in 1920. Brown attended the Simcoe Street Talmud Torah and studied under Rabbi Jacob Gordon. He continued his education at the Hebrew Theological College of Chicago and returned to Toronto in 1933. Between 1934 and 1936 Brown served as the first Executive Secretary of the CJC, Central Region. From 1936 to 1937 he was an announcer for the Jewish Radio Hour, where he read the News of the Week. In 1945 he graduated from the University of Toronto with a BA and then again in 1948 with an MA in Oriental Languages. Brown was married to Dorothy Mercovitch (1912-2009) of London, Ontario and together they had two children, Martin and Paul.
Brown entered the field of Jewish education as the Principal of Shaarei Shomayim Hebrew School from 1942 to 1948, as a Principal of the AHS of Toronto and as Dean of the Midrasha L'Morim. From 1957 to 1964 he worked as a consultant with the BJE in Toronto and then became the BJE's Associate Director until the early 1980s. He also was a member of the UJWF’s Study Committee on Jewish Education, the National Council of Jewish Education, the Toronto Zionist Council and the Educational and Cultural Committee of the CJC. In 1969, he received an honourary doctorate in Hebrew Letters from the Hebrew Theological College in Skokie, Illinois.
Dr. Brown died on 15 September 1984 at the age of 75.

Admin History/Bio
Established in 1949 as the Bureau of Jewish Education, the Board of Jewish Education (BJE) is the central Jewish agency in Toronto whose mandate is to preserve, enrich, and promote Jewish education in the Greater Toronto area. Its primary tasks are to coordinate and provide leadership in teacher training and professional development, curriculum development, school administration, and inter-school activities, and also to allocate funds to affiliated Jewish schools raised through the annual UJA Federation fundraising campaign.
The BJE was established following the recommendations of a 1948 study of Jewish education in Toronto undertaken by Dr. Uriah Z. Engelman of the American Association for Jewish Education, and sponsored by the United Jewish Welfare Fund and the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC), Central Region. In its constitution, the bureau was described as having the dual characteristics of being an autonomous agency of the UJWF and also as acting for the UJWF in the field of Jewish education. The bureau was governed by a board of governors with representatives from affiliated schools, the UJWF, CJC Central Region, and from the community at large. The inaugural meeting of the board took place on 20 March 1950. The BJE served 21 day and supplementary schools at its founding.
During the 1950s and early 1960s, the BJE sponsored adult education programs in Toronto through the Institute for Jewish Studies, in collaboration with the Jewish Community Centre (JCC) and CJC. The BJE also provided assistance and advice to the CJC in support of Jewish education in the smaller Jewish communities in Ontario. The BJE's role in adult education diminished significantly after its reorganization in 1968, but this again became a responsibility for the BJE in the late 1990s.
Although its primary function is to support existing educational institutions, the BJE has also participated in establishing several new institutions in Toronto. In 1953, to meet the need for qualified teachers in affiliated schools, the BJE and CJC Central Region founded a Jewish teachers' seminary (Midrasha L'Morim) in Toronto, which was jointly funded by the BJE and CJC for many years. In 1960, the BJE and UJWF sponsored the establishment of a non-denominational Jewish high school, the Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto (CHAT), with the BJE Executive Director as its director. In 1978, the Orah School for Jewish Children from the Soviet Union was established by the BJE, to meet the special needs of the large numbers of recent immigrants from the Soviet Union.
Dr. Alexander Brown worked for the BJE for over 20 years. His involvement began in 1957 when he became a consultant to the BJE. In the late 1960s, he became the BJE’s Associate Director, a position he held until the early 1980s. He also served as Dean of the Midrasha L’Morim and was a member of its faculty.

Admin History/Bio
The non-denominational and Zionist Toronto Hebrew Religious School (the Associated Hebrew Schools of Toronto ‘s precursor) was established in 1907 to provide Jewish children with a Jewish education based on Torah values. Originally situated on Simcoe Street, the school moved to Brunswick Avenue in 1925. As the Jewish population in the city grew, additional branches of the school were opened throughout the city. Although classes were originally taught five days a week in the evenings, the first day school opened in 1943 with 25 students. The Associated Hebrew Day School expanded in the late 1950s to include a junior high, and in the 1960s the Community Hebrew High School (now TannenbaumCHAT) opened. Dr. Alexander Brown began his career with Associated as the Principal of Shaarei Shomayim Hebrew School from 1942 to 1948. He later served as Principal at Associated.
