Admin History/Bio
The first committee meetings were held in 1944 as a forum for joint discussions between the United Jewish Welfare Fund and its client agencies in Toronto to examine the long-term financial needs of the agencies and thus fund-raising plans at the UJWF. As clients were bound to consult the UJWF before initiating fund-raising campaigns of their own, plans for special capital campaigns to finance new buildings by individual organizations such as Mount Sinai Hospital, the YMHA, the Jewish Home for the Aged, and several Jewish schools were also discussed.
Scope and Content
Series consists of two sub-series; Meeting Minutes and Individual Agency Reports. Minutes contain discussions both with individual agencies and also groups of agencies such as schools and camps. Reports consist of detailed financial needs studies about three of the individual agencies. Files are arranged chronologically within each sub-series.
Notes
Access Restriction Note: Records documenting the meeting minutes and activities of this committee and its sub-committees are CLOSED until they are more than ten years old.

Admin History/Bio
The Central Committee on Scholarships in Aid was established by the UJWF in 1957 in order to manage requests for educational scholarship loans for deserving but impoverished Jewish residents of Toronto. The loan requests were originally made to the Toronto Hebrew Re-establishment Services, Jewish Vocational Services, or the Jewish Family and Child Service. These agencies would then forward deserving requests to the Committee, which would review the requests and issue the necessary funds. The Committee was also responsible for the further administration of the loan repayments. In 1971, the Committee decided to turn over complete administration of the scholarship loan program to the Toronto Hebrew Re-establishment Services , which formally took charge of this program in January, 1972.
Scope and Content
Series consists of one sub-series: Meeting Minutes. Minutes files also include correspondence and reports about issues and cases discussed in committee meetings. Files are arranged chronologically within the sub-series.
Notes
Although this committee was created in 1957, only documentation of its meetings from 1964 to to 1972 still exists.
Access restriction note: Records documenting the meeting minutes and activities of this committee and its sub-committees are CLOSED until they are more than ten years old.

The Pension Fund Committee was established in 1958 to examine issues around the creation of a pension fund for employees of the UJWF and its affiliated agencies. By 1960 this employee benefit had been established, with Canada Trust as the fund manager. Since then the committee has been responsible for applying fund regulations and making decisions concerning fund access and disbursement eligibility.

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.
