Admin History/Bio
Jack Schwartz was Sylvia Schwartz's uncle, and was married to Minnie Schwartz. Their daughter Jewell owned an art gallery in Yorkville for many years. Jack was in the fur business in Toronto.
Gerald Halbert was born in 1935 to Hyman and Faye Halbert in Toronto. He is the brother of Dr. Ralph Halbert and Mrs. Rhoda Brown (nee Halbert). Gerald's mother Faye was Sylvia Schwartz's cousin on her mother's side.
Gerald Halbert received his medical degree in 1960 from the University of Toronto. Around that time he became very involved in the Jewish community, first volunteering for the UJA in 1960 and then traveling to Israel on a UJA Young Leadership Mission in 1962. Inspired and awed by the country, his lifelong commitment to the community was solidified. Since that time he has held many volunteer leadership roles within the Toronto community, including: chair and/or co-chair for three UJA Federation Campaigns and President of United Israel Appeal of Canada and of Canadian Friends of Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has also been active in the development of the Wolfond Centre for Jewish Campus Life at the University of Toronto.
Outside of the Jewish community, he has helped to raise funds for and establish several research chairs at the University of Toronto and University Health Network and is a member of the Mount Sinai Hospital Board of Governors. He is a member of the Toronto General and Western Hospital Foundation Board of Directors, where he has volunteered significant time to a number of fundraising initiatives including the Spark of Life and Neurosurgery Chair Campaigns. He is also Board Champion for the Krembil Neuroscience Centre’s Krembil Discovery Tower and Krembil Neuro Program.
In 2002 he was awarded the Order of Canada for his lifelong commitment and contributions to his community.
He was married in 1960 to Sandra ("Tootsie") (nee Sukerman) and they have two daughters: Wendy and Michelle.
