Benevolent societies, or landsmenshaften, were formed in the early part of the twentieth-centurey along shtetl lines by Eastern European Jewish immigrants to Toronto. The societies served to unite members of the community who originated from the same town or region, and also helped to secure passage to Toronto for those who were still in Europe. The societies also provided services to its dues-paying membership such as: aid in finding employment or accomodation, hospital and special medical care, doctor's visitation, sick benefit payments, funeral benefits and arrangements, and in many cases a burial plot. Some societies also provided a loans to its membership through a credit society. In later years, many benevlent societies also began to act as fraternal organizations that engaged in cultural and philanthropic programming.

As the society grew, the benefit society formed an "Actzia" or credit society for granting loans and in the 1940s established a synagogue on Spadina Ave. so that its members could pray together. It later moved to Wilson Ave. and in 1969 a building was erected at its current location on Bathurst St., south of Steeles.

Scope and Content
Accession consists of one booklet from the Apter Hilfs Farein 5th Annual Banquet held at Beth Jacob Synagogue in Toronto on Sunday February 6, 1944.
Administrative History
The Apter Hilfs Farein was a landmanshaft organization formed by Polish immigrants to Toronto in the early 20th Century and the precursor to the Apter Friendly Society.
Upon emigrating to Canada the immigrants purchased a small synagogue on Centre Avenue near Dundas Street in 1905, and in 1918, in anticipation of more Apter immigrants coming to Toronto after the First World War, the synagogue was sold and a larger one purchased on Beverley Street. That same year a Relief Committee was founded as a means of helping the Apter landsleit in Poland and while many of its members did not belong to the synagogue, the committee was permitted to hold their meetings there.
After the Second World War, the younger members of the Relief Committee decided to form an organization that would have a different mandate other than relief. Thus, in 1946 the Apter Friendly Society was founded with a membership of forty. The society instituted a series of cultural events and programming and maintained it's original social and welfare functions as well

Admin History/Bio
This was a very active committee consisting of representatives from the fraternal orders, sick benefit societies and landsmanshaften. An early chairman was Alfred Green. In 1947, it was Carl Herlick, K.C. The committee dealt - or tried to deal - among other issues, with the relationship of the societies and the medical profession. After the expulsion of the United Jewish Peoples Order in 1950, it seemed to peter out. The Societies Division held annual social events - one year at the Prince George Hotel.
Scope and Content
Series consists of general files of the Societies Division.

The Menorah Society grew out of the Yiddish Club at the University of Toronto in 1917. The had a semi-official status and superseded most of the other Jewish student groups. Most often they met off campus, but they did have a faculty advisor named Professor W. R. Taylor, who taught Hebrew at University College. Menorah Society was a branch of an intercollegiate Jewish society formed at Harvard in 1906 for the study of Jewish history and culture. In Toronto, they flourished until it was undermined by the Greek-letter fraternities in the late 1920s and in 1931 they dissolved.
