Scope and Content
Photographs of Mozirer Young Women, Mozirer Young Men, and Mozirer Ladies Auxiliary.
Descriptive Notes
The date of the photographs was estimated by Ben Kayfetz, whose relatives appear in the photos. However, the date seems to be incorrect. The photograph of the ladies auxiliary appears to be from the 1940s or early 1950s, judging from the clothes worn by the women. The Mozirer Young Women photograph appears to be from the 1920s or 1930s, and the Mozirer Young Men photo appears to be from the 1920s.

Admin History/Bio
The Stashover Young Men's Mutual Benefit Society regularly donated to the Honour Roll. They were also referred to as the Stashiver Young Men's Mutual Benefit Society.
Scope and Content
File consists of a photograph of the Stashover Young Men's Society presenting a cheque to the Men's Service Group for the Honour Roll. Identified in the photograph is (left to right): William Rosengarten (Treasurer of the Stashover Young Men's Society and Chairman of the MSG Honour Roll), Gordon Mendly, Issie Brown (President of the Stashover Young Men's Society), Mrs. G. Katz (Chairlady of the Ladies' Auxiliary), and M. Koffman (Vice-President of the Stashover Young Men's Society).
Notes
A note accompanying the photograph stated that the Stashover Society was "the first ones to give money", which suggests this may have been the first donation to the Honour Roll that year, or that the Society was the first to ever make a donation to the Honour Roll.

Scope and Content
Accession consists of a gold Kieltzer Sick Benefit Society pin engraved with "for not drawing ten years benefit".
Administrative History
The Kieltzer Society was organized in 1913 by a handful of immigrants from the city of Kieltz (Kielce) in Poland with the objective of creating a home away from home for themselves and the arriving new immigrants. They helped each other find jobs and accommodations, and they arranged opportunities to socialize with one another. As the Society became more established, it created a Free Loan Casa (fund). Members could borrow money for down payments on homes, starting businesses, and sending home parcels. Each member was also entitled to receive weekly sick benefits when necessary and free doctor visits.
Following the devastation of the Holocaust, there were new obligations and responsibilities for the Society. Members welcomed recently arrived immigrants from Kieltz into the Society and helped them adjust to a new life. These new members reinvigorated the Society with active participation and the organization of more social events. Once the immigrants became more settled in Toronto, the Kieltzer Society turned its efforts to strengthening the new State of Israel by raising funds, buying Israel Bonds and teaching the next generation the importance of its security. The members of the Society were awarded with pins and badges in recognition of their leadership and tzedakah. As the Kieltzer Society celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2013, it remains steadfast in its commitment to Israel and to preserving its legacy for future generations.
