Admin History/Bio
The Koffler Centre of the Arts was established in 1977, as part of the Bathurst Jewish Community Centre at Bathurst Street and Sheppard Avenue, to enrich the cultural life of Toronto through arts education and exhibitions. The Koffler exists to encourage and develop the creative and artistic potential of the diverse community it serves. The Koffler Gallery as a public gallery and member of the Ontario Association of Art Galleries exhibits, interprets, and documents works of excellence in the visual arts with a focus on contemporary Canadian art, including the work of visual artists, emerging artists, and programming of special interest in the Jewish community.
The Koffler has offered an array of programmatic, education, and learning programs, including national and international art exhibitions, educational tours, and workshops, literary arts programs, art classes, lectures, concerts, film screenings, and theatre performances. The Koffler has also served public and private school students and their teachers through Koffler Gallery exhibition tours and workshops.
The Koffler Centre is governed by an executive board and standing and ad-hoc committees and is funded by endowments, donations, and sponsorhips as its primary sources of funding. The Koffler also receives annual operating support from the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto and all levels of government, including the City of Toronto, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council. The staff consists of an executive director, curators, and administrative support staff.
In 2013, after five years of off-site programs, the Koffler Centre of the Arts opened its administrative offices and the new Koffler Gallery at Artscape Youngplace on Shaw Street in downtown Toronto.

Admin History/Bio
The first edition of the Toronto Hadassah Reporter was published in September 1937 by the Toronto Hadassah Council. The mandate of this periodical was stated to be “A new venture to present to members the doings of the chapters, the plans of it’s council, and Jewish news of importance all over the world.” In 1991 the editor’s responsibility was described as “Informing membership of current projects and recording past successes.” In 1998 the readership was reminded that the Reporter functions to make them aware of every activity at every level of WIZO
From the early years of publication, from 1937 through to the end of the Second World War, current events reports from countries and cities around the world kept readers informed about Jewish issues and war efforts. The founding of the State of Israel in 1948, and subsequent developments there was a major theme. Subsequent topics of historical significance included Expo 67 in Montreal, Soviet Jewry in the 1970s and 1980s, the American Bicentennial in 1976, and Camp David in 1978.
WIZO’s strong affiliation with other community organizations is well documented. These organizations include the Toronto branches of Jewish National Fund, Israel Bonds, Hebrew University, and Young Judaea. Activities of the United Jewish Appeal, Jewish Vocational Service, Jewish Family and Child Service, B’Nai Brith Women, the Jewish Book Fair, and others were also promoted.
The coverage of internal Hadassah activities was very thorough. Conventions, yearly bazaars, fund raising events, financial reports, listings and biographies of officers and executives, chapter histories, and the development of Hadassah’s own archive, as well as reports from members visiting Israel and other countries around the world, are some of the highlights. Cultural topics include book reviews and advertisements for lectures.
A prominent feature is the listing in almost every issue of the Life Members, and since 1972, Male Life Associates, as well as “Specific Gifts” donors to such projects as Youth Aliyah, Hadassim, Asaf Harofe Hospital, Hebrew University Medical Centre, and Project Enrichment.
The Reporter served a financial role by including ads for local businesses in the early editions, and from 1954 on, by promoting the commercial ventures
Scope and Content
The series consists of a collection of periodicals called the Toronto Hadassah Reporter, covering the years 1937 to 2004.
From 1937 to 1955 the Reporter was published monthly. The collection is not complete for these years, with an average of seven to eight issues missing per year. During the years 1956 to 1969 an average of six editions was published. From 1970 to 2000 the number of issues varied from three to five. During 2000 to 2004 the frequency stabilized at four per year, of which half are missing. Due to the frequently changing publication schedule it is not possible to know with certainty which issues are not included.
Files in this series have been arranged in chronological order.

Admin History/Bio
The first Canadian chapter of Hadassah was established in Toronto in 1916. Subsequent chapters emerged in other large Canadian cities thereafter. In 1919 several chapters organized to form the Hadassah Organization of Canada. And in 1921, Hadassah Canada joined the Women’s International Zionist Organization (WIZO), and subsequently changed its name to Hadassah-WIZO. The original goal of Hadassah was to raise funds for refugees in Eastern Europe. Later on, their mandate shifted to that of providing money and support for the Jews in Israel. Although it spent a great deal of time and resources raising funds for this cause, Hadassah-WIZO was a philanthropic organization that encouraged productivity rather than charity.
Today, Hadassah-WIZO is the largest organization of Jewish women in Canada. In addition to providing Jewish women with an opportunity to liaise with other women from the community and volunteer for a worthy cause, this organization also promotes some important national and international goals. These goals include: encouraging Jewish and Hebrew culture in Canada; extending the material and moral support of Jewish women in Canada to the people of Israel who require assistance; and cooperating with other organizations in the promotion of Canadian ideals of democracy.
The records in this fonds were created by the Toronto chapter of Hadassah-WIZO. The Toronto chapter is not only the oldest, but also one of the largest and most active affiliates of the 304 Hadassah-WIZO chapters in Canada. Some of the activities that it sponsors include the famous annual bazaar, which was started in 1924 and is one of the largest in North America. They also contribute to the support of a host of Canadian Hadassah-WIZO initiatives in Israel which include: the Nahalal School, the Netanya Technological High School, the Hadassim Children and Youth Village, several day care centres, women’s and youth clubs, the Hadassah-WIZO Canada Research Institute, and two medical centers. The Toronto chapter in particular sponsors youth aliyah, and raises funds and honours important volunteers through the organization of tribute dinners, golf tournaments, and other events. Finally, this chapter is also responsible for producing the Hadassah Reporter, which is the newsletter that documents the activities of the Toronto chapter.
Custodial History
The records were acquired from the main Hadassah office on Sheppard Ave.
Scope and Content

Custodial History

Administrative History
The Jewish Theatre Committee was founded in 1984 as a standing committee of the Toronto Jewish Cultural Council of the Toronto Jewish Congress. Its goal was to promote dramatic activities as a medium of Jewish cultural programming by encourageing new theatre groups, offering guidance in Jewish drama programming, to promote and develop new talent and scripts, and to work towards a Jewish Drama Festival. In 1984, a series of developmental workshops resulted in the formation of the Medina Theatre Ensemble, which presented creative theatrical programmes of Jewish content. The committee also organized workshops, school programmes, symposiums, lectures and readings and a yearly playwriting competition. The Jewish Theatre Committee disbanded sometime in the early 2000s.

Scope and Content
Accession consists of records related to the Jewish Free Loan Toronto (formerly the Toronto Jewish Free Loan Cassa or the G’milath Chasodim). Records include executive and board of directors meeting minutes, agendas, correspondance, reports and case summaries from the 1980s and 1990s.
Custodial History
Records were in the possession of Marlee Petroff, who works for JFLT.
Administrative History
The Jews who immigrated to Toronto in the early 1900s had difficulty finding employment, in particular the Shabbat observant members of the community. Consequently, these individuals had to seek out entrepreneurial possibilities which were financed by the early versions of communal loan societies.
The Loan Cassa originally served the community by offering loans to settle Jews in agricultural colonies on lands purchased by the Jewish Colonization Association of Canada. With funding from the estate of Baron de Hirsch, these loans were intended only for new immigrants who had been in Canada for less than 8 years. As Loan Cassa evolved over the years, it operated in partnership with the United Jewish Relief Agency and the Canadian Jewish Congress, and became the agency that provided business loans to the community.
A Free Loan Society was formed in Toronto in 1911, under the Associated Hebrew Charities. It operated on a very informal basis, with promissory notes being guaranteed by prominent individuals. By 1917 it was deeply in debt, with only two dollars in its treasury. In 1922, Rabbi Barnett Brickner recommended a new Free Loan Society, to be financed by B’nai Brith and private donors. With $3,800 from B’nai Brith and $1,350 from community members, the first meeting of the Hebrew Free Loan Association was held on Dec.7, 1922 at the Zionist Institute, at the corner of Beverly and Cecil Streets. On July 12, 1924, Letters Patent were signed and sealed, incorporating Toronto G’Milath Chasodim Association. Twelve Jewish men, “all of the City of Toronto, in the County of York and Province of Ontario” were the founding members of the corporation, which was established “to assist deserving applicants for relief.”
Historically, the B’nai Brith Organization and the National Council of Jewish Women provided the funds for student loans. Their original contributions were effective in establishing this community service, “by providing funds through loans to those students academically capable but financially unable to continue studies leading to vocational preparation.” In 1957, when additional community support was required, the Scholarship In Aid program began operating under the auspices of the United Jewish Welfare Fund. Toronto Hebrew Re-Establishment Services assumed responsibility for, and administered, the program.
Recognizing that the community would be best served by one free loan organization, TJFLC (Toronto Jewish Free Loan Cassa (G’milath Chasodim) Association) was formed in 1985 through a merger of Toronto’s business, personal and educational loan agencies. In 2011, the board of directors approved a new name, Jewish Free Loan Toronto (JFLT) in furtherance of a new marketing and outreach initiative.
JFLT supports the position that the Jewish community assumes a responsibility to assist and to invest in the future of its community members. JFLT is proud to carry on with the important work of G’milath Chasodim – Helping Others To Help Themselves.
