These include cultural (Toronto Cantorial Scholarship Fund), educational (Netivot Hatorah and Yeshivat Or Chaim Ulpanat Orot), religious (Union of Jewish Orthodox Congregations), social welfare (Association of Jewish Seniors and Co-Ordinated Services to the Jewish Elderly) and Zionist (Canadian Friends of Yeshivat Hakotel and State of Israel Bonds) organizations.

While many of these organizations such as Eitz Chaim, Or Chaim Ulpanat Orot (educational), Mizrachi Organization of Canada, Emunah Women (Zionist) and Beth Jacob V’Anshe Drildz (synagogue) are orthodox, others such as Associated Hebrew Day Schools (educational), State of Israel Bonds (Zionist) and Co-ordinated Services to the Jewish Elderly (social welfare) have no religious affiliation.

Scope and Content
Accession consists of two microfilm reels, one negative and one positive, of a scrapbook compiled by Sara Godfrey of Toronto, the wife of Samuel Godfrey. The documents in the scrapbook include newspaper clippings, photographs, invitations and event programmes.

Administrative History
Samuel Godfrey was a successful businessman and an active leader in Toronto's Jewish community in the 1940s and 1950s. Born in Russian Poland in 1899 to Solomon and Minnie (Fleishman) Godfrey, he came to Toronto as a baby. His first job was as a newsboy. In 1922, he established a company that became one of Canada's largest waste and wool merchants: S. Godfrey, Ltd. As well, he was president of several other companies. In 1925, Godfrey married Sara E. Levi and the couple had three daughters, Sheila, Judith and Margaret. Sheila married Dr. Ira Pollock, son of Clara Teich Pollock and Maurice Aaron Pollock.
Samuel Godfrey was involved with numerous entities during a time of expansion for the Jewish community. He was a founding co-chairman of the United Jewish Welfare Fund in 1938; president of the United Jewish Appeal in 1941; president of the Community Chest of Greater Toronto; co-chair of the building committee for the new Jewish Community Centre at Bloor and Spadina; and he was involved in fundraising for the construction of the new Mount Sinai Hospital.
Godfrey was nominated to run for the federal Liberal party in the October 1955 by-election, but lost to the Conservative Party. He was invested in the Office of the British Empire in 1948 and he and his wife established the Samuel Godfrey Scholarship at the University of Toronto's medical school. Samuel Godfrey died in 1956.
