Admin History/Bio
The Ontario government was putting pressure on the Jewish cemeteries spread around Toronto to clear up the disorder in the burial grounds to ensure a system of perpetual care. The cemeteries were approached with this in view. In the end, through the efforts of Al Ginsburg of Beth Tzedec, the Dawes Rd. and Jones Avenue properties were reorganized, a permanent fulltime groundskeeper was engaged (A.M. Levy) and adminstration was improved. The other cemeteries remained outside of this new organization which was named the Amalgamated Dawes Road Trustees. Some of these made their own arrangements. Canadian Jewish Congress lent its administrative help to the Amalgamated Dawes Rd. Trustees, hence this committee.

This accession consists of seventy photographs taken by Nir Bareket in 1994, documenting the March of the Living trip. This collection includes images of the participants visiting Jewish cemeteries in Warsaw and Lublin, the Jewish ghetto in Krakow, the Auschwitz Museum and Camp, Birkenau Camp, Majdanek Camp and Treblinka Camp, and finally, the Yad Vashem Museum and the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
Administrative History
Nir Bareket (1939-2015) was born in Haifa, Israel in 1939, and moved to New York City in 1964, where he studied photography at the New York Institute of Photography and the School of Visual Arts. He opened up his own photography studio in New York soon after. In 1969 he moved to Geneva, Switzerland where he worked across Europe as the head of a team of international photographers known as Investors Overseas Services (IOS). In 1970 he returned to Israel where he became the chief photographer at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Five years later he immigrated to Canada and established a photography studio in Toronto, which he continues to operate today.
In 1994, he was the official photogrrapher for the March of the Living pilgrimage, which is overseen by UJA Federation of Greater Toronto as part of the Canadian Israel Experience program. This trip operates each year and is intended to expose a new generation of Jews to two of the most significant events of Jewish history -- the Shoah (the Holocaust) and the birth of the State of Israel. The participants are teenagers who are exposed to key places in Europe and Israel where these events took place. The photographs that Mr. Bareket took to capture this trip were displayed at an exhibition held in 1995 at the Loggia Gallery within the Koffler Centre of the Arts.
Throughout his career, Bareket has taken part in approximately thirty-five exhibits held in Toronto, New York City, Jerusalem, China and Cuba. Some of his noted displays have included the March of the Living (1995) as well as a series on the homeless of Toronto (2000-2001) which was held at BCE Place, Toronto City Hall, the Dufferin Mall, and the BJCC. He has also taught photography at a variety of institutions such as George Brown College, York University, Hebrew University, the Israel Museum and the New York Institute of Photography.
Nir Bareket passed away on 12 May 2015.

Physical Description
1665 photographs (approx.) ; b&w ; 10 x 15 cm
Date
[ca. 1997]-[ca. 1999]
Scope and Content
This accession consists of photographs of headstones at the Roselawn Cemetery in Toronto. The photographs were taken by volunteers working on the project which meant to capture genealogical information from the Jewish cemeteries around Toronto. Some of the information from the stones have been uploaded to the JewishGen's burial registry database, however, the photographs contain additional information such as Hebrew names and birth and death dates.
Taken alongside the stone in each photograph is an accompanying marker indicating the section and row of the grave, which corresponds to a physical list filed with each binder. Researchers will have to search for the deceased person's name on JewishGen first and locate the section and row of the stone, before being able to find the photograph in the binders.
Administrative History
The Jewish Genealogical Society of Canada (Toronto) was formally established in 1985. It is now one of seven Jewish genealogical societies in Canada. Its mission is to stimulate interest in the pursuit of Jewish genealogical research; to facilitate the pursuit of Jewish genealogical research locally and globally; and to provide an environment for fellowship and mutual exchange among persons with an interest in Jewish genealogy.
