Admin History/Bio
UJA Federation’s Walk with Israel was first held in May 1970, when it was called the UJA Walkathon. The first Walk was organized quickly with no advance publicity, yet it still raised $55,000. In the early years, funds raised in the Walk went into UJA’s Israel Special Fund. Since then, the money has supported particular projects in Israel that often involve children, since children are the main fundraisers in the event. The Walk with Israel has grown into the largest event in the Toronto Jewish community, with over 20,000 people participating as volunteers or walkers, and funds raised reaching as high as $400,000. The event has had several name changes since 1970: Walk for Israel (1978-1993); Community March for Israel (1994-1996); Israel Funwalk (1998-2002); and the current name, Walk with Israel.
The Walk with Israel is one of the programs mounted by the Annual Campaign department of UJA Federation. It is planned by a Cabinet Committee, with one or two laypeople as chairs, and numerous sub-committees. The main UJA staff undertaking the planning and execution is the Walk Coordinator. Each year, sub-committees are formed for recruitment, logistics, marketing and public relations, the Festival, food, entertainment, etc. The Walk also involves many outside entities: companies approached for prizes, donations or sponsorship; entertainment groups; the Toronto police force, which provides traffic control, marshalling and a parade permit; city government, for park use permits and outdoor signage; community groups mounting displays; costumed character rental companies; and manufacturers of the t-shirts, hats and buttons produced each year for Walk participants.
In addition to being a major fundraiser, the Walk fashioned itself initially as a fitness challenge to children and athletes, with a route as long as 31 kilometres in 1976. Over the years, this length has been reduced significantly, with the event evolving into a more manageable and family-oriented event. In the last decade, with periods of tension overseas, it has been framed as a demonstration of solidarity with Israel. Alongside the main event, alternative fundraisers such as a large Raffle, Dance-a-thon, Aerob-a-thon and Learn-a-thon for Eitz Chaim day schools, have been held in some years to encourage more people to contribute. Incentives for those who collect sponsors have grown over the years, from free t-shirts to a succession of prizes depending on the amount of funds raised. The grand prize draw for many years was two El Al airline tickets to Israel.
The location of the Walk has moved from the Bathurst Street 'corridor' of the Jewish community, to a downtown route that for some years went through the historic Jewish neighbourhood of Kensington Market and more recently, begins and ends at Coronation Park by the lakeshore and winds around the downtown streets. There is now also a kick-off party at the Walk’s starting point. Since 1984, the Walk has culminated in a big festival, featuring rides, petting zoos, a barbecue, musical entertainment, clowns and other attractions. This was usually held in a park or the BJCC parking lot. When the Walk route moved downtown, the Festival shifted to Ontario Place, and more recently, it has taken place on the CNE grounds by the lakeshore. Since 2007, the Festival has been sponsored by RioCan, and 'yogen fruz' became a major sponsor of the Walk in 2008. Other Walk sponsors have included Roots Canada (supplier of t-shirts), Shopper’s Drug Mart, Henry’s camera centre, Canada Trust, National Bank Financial Group, and the Canadian Zionist Federation.
Scope and Content
Sub-series contains records that document the planning and coordination of the Walk for Israel each year, as well as photographs and other records from the day itself and post-walk evaluation and wrap-up activities. The records include meeting notices, agendas and minutes, information sheets, lists, schedules, sitemaps, correspondence, school presentations, permits, press releases, design work, invoices, flyers, and photographs. Materials distibuted to participants include walker passports that had to be verified at each checkpoint, sponsor books, collection envelopes, tickets and other ephemera.
Most of the records have been arranged by year, broken down by function, in the following order: Walk oversight (the Walk Committee and chairs); recruitment of participants; volunteers; logistics such as route and police/security coverage; publicity and public relations, design of memorabilia (i.e. hats); sponsorship and prizes; financial management; the Walk event itself; the Festival; related fundraisers, particularly the Eitz Chaim Day Schools Learnathon; and post-event evaluation. The Festival records document the planning of food, entertainment, displays, amusements, and volunteers, and include photographs taken on the day of the event.
Sub-series 17-1 also includes individual files containing photographs from ranges of years. These were added to this series after the major portion of the "Walk" records had already been processed.
Notes

Admin History/Bio
The 1980 Walk for Israel took place on Sunday, May 25. It was chaired by Verne Chelin and Jerry Panet, and the TJC staff coordinator was Mark Gryfe. New to the Walk this year was a "leadership mile" in which 25 prominent community leaders participated. These included Solicitor-General, Robert Kaplan; provincial minister of industry, trade and tourism, Larry Grossman; Toronto alderman, Art Eggleton; John Roberts; Toronto Jewish Congress president, Wilfred Posluns; Murray Koffler; and MIlton Harris. The 11 checkpoints along the 25 kilometre route were named after Israeli cities. 13,000 people turned out for the event.
Part of the Walk's promotion included a letter from Henry "The Fonz" Winkler to the students of Jewish schools in Toronto. The popular celebrity could not attend the Walk, but in his letter, he expressed encouragement for the students' fundraising efforts and wished them well.

The 1981 Walk for Israel took place on Sunday, May 3. Its theme was "Walk for the Youth of Israel," since monies raised went to build a sports complex for the children of Mazkeret Batya. Advertised highlights of the 1981 Walk included Al Waxman, a celebrity photo booth, the Blue Jays Bird, Mr. Peanut, and the Toronto Argos cheerleaders. The Walk ended with a celebration of the northern JCC's (BJCC's) twentieth anniversary. As an adjunct fundraiser, a 15-hour Danceathon, was held at the BJCC, where participants could dance from 11 pm to 2 pm the next day. The Danceathon was organized by Ruth Lootsteen and Jack Samuel.

In 1982, UJA's Walk for Israel took place on May 2nd and had a 25 kilometre route. It was chaired by Verne Chelin and Jerry Panet. The Walk celebrated its bar mitzvah year in 1982 with a celebration and carnival at the route's end at the BJCC. The cause for which funds were raised was the construction of a community centre in the town of Beit Dagar in Israel. Special appearances were made along the Walk route by Miss Toronto 1981, the Coca Cola robot, and a giant 'Smurf'. An adjunct fundraiser, the 15-hour Danceathon, was held for the second year.

The 1984 Walk for Israel took place on Sunday, June 3rd, beginning at the Bathurst and Sheppard plaza and ending at the Bathurst JCC. The route was a new one and was 20 kilometres long. As per the usual procedure, walkers handed in their money at the first checkpoint. The Walk chairs this year were Bobby Katz and Larry Shapiro. As in past years, B'nai Brith manned the checkpoints and acted as marshalls in overseeing traffic safety. The Walk this year had all the features that had become tradition: refreshments at the checkpoints, cartoon characters, appearances by public figures, and the grand prize of two El Al tickets to Israel.

In 1986, 13,000 people participated in UJA's Walk for Israel, raising $180,000. This year, each checkpoint along the 18 kilometre route was named for one of Israel's eight prime ministers. The "Festival of Festivals" which ended the Walk, organized by UJA in support of Israel's children, marked Israel Independence Day. The festival featured booths set up by various community agencies.

Admin History/Bio
The 18th annual Walk for Israel drew 12,000 participants, and an additional 3000 who came to the Festival. The Walk was held on Sunday, May 17th and had the traditional route -- 18 kilometres for the 18th Walk -- south along Bathurst to Eglinton and then north on Avenue Road/Bathurst to the Festival at the Bathurst JCC. The event came together, as always, with the energy and organization of hundreds of volunteers, as well as the UJA Committee chaired by Gloria Clamen. The money raised this year went towards a daycare centre in Kfar Gvirol. At the Festival, two artists in their eighties, Henry Weingluck and Hannah Sandberg, displayed their paintings. A bonfire for Lag B'Omer wrapped up the day.

Admin History/Bio
In 1989, the Walk Committee, headed by Elaine Lightstone, attempted to get an even larger turnout by having two routes that covered the expansive Jewish community area in Toronto. The north route commenced at the Promenade Mall on Bathurst north of Clark; the south route started at Bathurst and Lawrence. Where the two routes crossed, at Beth Tikvah Synagogue on Bayview Avenue, a checkpoint featured an art display by students of eight Toronto day schools. About 13,000 people came out to take part in the Walk, the theme of which was "Footsteps for Freedom." Funds raised supported the absorption of immigrants in Israel. As it had for many years, B'nai Brith manned several checkpoints, but it was joined this year by a number of UJA divisions: the New Leadership Council, Societies, Young Executives and Professionals, and Students. The UJA staff coordinators for the Walk and the Festival were Rosie Sosnowicz and David Gotfrid. New to the Festival this year were displays by Metro Toronto emergency services. The Festival was chaired by David and Judy Engel.

Admin History/Bio
The 1990 Walk for Israel, called "Operation Exodus," helped launch the UJA campaign of that name for 1990. The theme was Soviet Aliyah, reflecting the tens of thousands of Soviet Jews leaving the U.S.S.R. since the late 1980s. Each checkpoint was planned to inform participants about a different phase of the emigration-absorption-integration process.
The 1990 Walk, which took place on Monday 21 May, was chaired by Elaine Lightstone and David Engel, with coordination by Federation staff member Rosie Sosnowicz. Recruitment at this time was carried out in day schools across Toronto, where volunteers made presentations to student assemblies in which the personal story of one young Soviet 'oleh' (immigrant to Israel) was shared. In addition to the Recruitment Committee and the overseeing Walkathon Committee, there were committees for the following functions: sponsorship, checkpoints, food, and the Festival. Public relations and advertising, carried out by an ad-hoc Publicity Committee, included the design of hats and shoelaces as giveaways to participants.
The 15 kilometre route made a square along Sheppard Avenue west, north on Yonge Street, east on Steeles and Clarke, and south on Bathurst to the BJCC, where the Festival was held in the north parking lot. The Festival featured games, rides, a petting zoo, live entertainment and plenty of food.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series contains textual records and photographs from the 1990 Walk for Israel and the Festival. 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, corporate sponsorship, finances, the Walk event itself, the Festival and post-event evaluation and follow-up.

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.
