Accession consists of photographs documenting the Gryfe, Silverman, Saul and Greenberg families. The majority of the images are family portraits, however, also included is a school photograph of Sandy Greenberg at Charles G. Fraser School in Toronto, a photograph of Feda and Izzy Greenberg in Ottawa, a photograph of the Silverman family at Crystal Beach, and a photograph of a family celebration for Morris Silverman's birthday.

Administrative History
Izzy Greenberg and Anna (nee Nathan) Greenberg immigrated to Ottawa from Romania around 1910. They had six children together: Freda, Harry, Joe, Anne, Helen, and Earl (b. 1920). Izzy likely worked as a peddler. When Anna passed away in 1923 all of the children, except for Freda, were sent to a Jewish orphanage in Montreal (the Montefiore orphanage). The orphanage closed in 1936 when Earl was 16 years old. He came to Toronto where he met Sandy (or Sylvia) Silverman. They were married in 1947. Earl initially worked as a shoe salesman, but later opened his own business, Sanmarcoda, where he bought and sold electronic surplus. He and Sandy had three children together: Marsha, Corey, and David. Sandy worked as a secretary with the provincial government and sold baby's clothing at flea markets on Sundays.
Joseph and Anna Saul came to Canada from Romania in the early 1900s. They had six children together: Sam (b. 1908), Rachel (Rae, b. 1910), Ida, Jeanette, Bonnie, and Dorothy. Joseph abandoned the family around 1923 and travelled to California to become an actor. Although his family never heard from him again, they later recognized him in movies under the name Maurice Samuels. Anna was deaf and mute and worked as a seamstress, making ladies clothing out of her own home. Rae obtained work in a hat factory when she was 13 years old and continued in this trade throughout the remainder of her life. Around 1950 she opened her own hat store at Eglinton and Dufferin called Rae's Hats. She briefly lived above the store with her husband, Sam Silverman.
Morris Silverman, Esther (Gryfe) Silverman, and their two daughters Fae and Tillie immigrated to Hamilton from Romania in 1907. Esther's sister, Lizzie Gryfe, was already living in Hamilton at the time. In 1909, Morris and Esther had another son together, Sam. By 1922, the family had moved to Nassau Street in Toronto where Morris worked as a tailor for Tip Top Tailors. They lived next door to the Saul Family. Sam married Rae Saul in 1927. Sam had had various jobs throughout his life including, cab driver, venetian blind salesman, and driver for a cleaner's.

Admin History/Bio
Rabbi Benjamin J. Hollander was born in 1936 in New York City. He was the principal of the Beth Tzedec Congregational School during the early 1970s, until he was dismissed by Rabbi Stuart E. Rosenberg in 1972. This move led to the infamous lawsuit between the congregation's Board of Directors and Rabbi Rosenberg.
Rabbi Hollander made aliyah in 1972 and has lived in Jerusalem since, spending some time in a Negev development town and a Gush Etzion community. Ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary, Rabbi Hollander is affiliated with Conservative, Reform and Orthodox institutions in Israel and holds advanced degrees in literature and education from NYU and Hebrew University, respectively. A founding member of Rabbis for Human Rights, Rabbi Hollander has, since the 1970s, taught Jewish studies in Jerusalem at Hebrew Union College, Machon Schechter, the Hebrew University School for Overseas Students, and the Siegal (Cleveland) College of Jewish Studies. His field of specialization is Torah and classical commentary, which he learned, primarily, from the legendary Torah teacher, Nehama Leibowitz. He has also served as the weekly Torah commentator on Kol Yisrael radio and traveled the country as a tour educator. Over the past decade, Rabbi Hollander has regularly returned to North America as scholar-in-residence at Camp Ramah, as rabbi of alternative High Holy Day services at Congregation Beth Tzedec in Toronto and as teacher and speaker in over two hundred synagogues, communities, schools, and retreats.
