Physical Description
1 window : glass, wood ; 66 x 66 cm
Date
[1955?]
Scope and Content
Accession consists of one stained glass synagogue window. The wooden-framed window features a blue Star of David on a yellow background. The window was likely created when the building was extensively renovated in 1955. It is possible, however, that it was created for the 1924 building and was retained after the 1955 renovations.
Custodial History
Sidney Holtzkener, the donor's husband, was a house chairman and volunteered to take the window. The window was displayed in the donor's home until the couple moved in 2009.
Administrative History
The London Jewish community had a single congregation until disagreements led to Moses Leff organizing an alternative minyan. This became Congregation B'nai Moses Ben Judah, named after Moses Pollock. Their first synagogue building, a remodelled wooden church, opened in 1907. This building was supplanted by a new and enlarged structure in 1924. The building was renovated and enlarged again in 1955, but did retain some elements of the old structure. In 1966 B'nai Moses Ben Judah almagamated with B'nai Israel, and consequently Congregation Or Shalom was created. The B'nai Israel building was chosen to house the new congregation and the the B'nai Moses building was sold to the Roman Catholic Diocese. Accordingly, its stained glass windows were removed. Edward's Glass Company Limited held on to the windows and later contacted the Holtzkeners to give them one. The Holtzkeners were members of B'nai Moses and later Congregation Or Sholom from at least 1944 until they moved to Toronto in 2009.

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.

Accession consists of material documenting Don Mills Lodge, B'nai Brith. Included are six issues of Planet Observer (2016, 2018--2019); seven issues of the Planet (1994-2008); a twenty-fifth anniversary publication (1982); a program for a fiftieth anniversary gala (2007); a bulletin (October 2015); a copy of the constitution and by-laws; three issues of 2131 News (March 1963, June 1963, and March 1964); a copy of the lodge's charter (1957); and seven albums containing letters, photographs, and printouts documenting events, achievements, and volunteer services (1977-2011).
Administrative History
In 1956, a group of men living in the newly developed area of Don Mills came together to establish a B'nai Brith lodge. On March 16, 1957, District Grand Lodge No. 1 granted a charter to Don Mills Lodge No. 2131 to operate in the city of Toronto. The lodge was one of several that belonged to B'nai Brith Canada; B'nai Brith Canada, in turn, belonged to B'nai Brith International.
An early accomplishment of the lodge was to raise funds for the purchase of North York's first ambulance, which provided the impetus for the development of the area's ambulance service. Other philanthropic endeavours over the years have included Monte Carlo nights, which raised funds for muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis associations, and an annual dinner draw run in cooperation with B'nai Brith Canada. Since the 1990s, the lodge has operated a bingo at two locations in Toronto to raise money for B'nai Brith and other communal activities. In addition, it has given thousands of dollars to a variety of organizations including Camp Oochigeas, the Canadian Association for the Riding Disabled, the Canadian International Scientific Exchange Program, CNIB, the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, the International Schizophrenia Foundation, the Magen David Adom, the Pride of Israel Synagogue's Kosher Food Bank, Sheena's Place, and YouthLink.
In the mid-2010s, the Don Mills Lodge began operating with the Leonard Mayzel Ontario Lodge (LMOL) of B'nai Brith. Since beginning to operate jointly, the lodges have ceased to have their own presidents.
As of 2019, the lodge currently participates in and sponsors the following community programs: the Ride Programme, which delivers coffee and donuts to police vans; a Hanukkah party and summer picnic for the foster children of Jewish Family & Child (JF&CS); the Na-Me-Res Traditional Pow Wow; a Shabbat service for veterans at Sunnybrook Hospital; apple-picking for Kadima residents; the ALS walkathon; and the Out of the Cold program.
The lodge's first president was Manny Widman, who served from 1957-1958. Subsequent presidents have included: Herbert Liebman (1958-1959), Joseph Skolnik (1959-1960), Allan N. Lewis (1960-1961), Harold Chapman (1961-1962), Irwin Borins (1962-1963), Gerald Rafelman (1963-1964), Morley Torgov (1964-1965), Murray Page (1965-1966), Lowell Biderman (1966-1967), Earl Segal (1967-1968), Leon Tessler (1968-1969), Sam Brown (1969-1970), Joe Feller (1970-1971), Dave Sugarman (1971-1972), Marvin Cohen (1972-1974), Allen Werger (1974-1975), Murray Stitsky (1975-1976), Syd Feldman (1976-1977), Maurice Wesfield (1977-1978), Michael Brodsky (1978-1979), Shelly Goldstein (1979-1980), David Grader (1980-1981), Howie Cohen (1981-1982), Tom Kolin (1982-1983), Gerry Rowan (1983-1984), Andrew Stevens (1984-1985), Harold Bricks (1985-1987), Jerry Freud (1987-1988), Vic Blackman (1988-1989), Gary Feldman (1989-1990), Charles Bleier (1990-1991), Lou Ginsberg (1991-1992), Len Berk (1992-1994), Debby Goldstein (1994-1995), Esther Saxe (1995-1997), Joanne Bleier (1997-1998), Hermy Gimpel (1998-2000), Allen Burke (2000-2001), Eli Goldberg (2001-2002), Henry Gimpel (2002-2003), Ken Waldman (2003-2005), David Grader (2005-2006), Sheldon Saxe (2006-2008), Allan Wilson (2008-2009), Ava Brodsky (2009-2011), and Brenda Stevens and Robbi Wilson (2012-2013).

Administrative History
In the years following the 1st Zionist Congress held in Basle, Switzerland in 1897, Zionist organizations were established around the world.
In Toronto one of the first Zionist societies to be founded was the B'nai Zion Association. This organization was established as a mutual benefit society in 1903. It provided sick, funeral and unemployment benefits to its members.
However, its main purpose was the promotion of Zionism. It was involved in the dissemination of Zionist material, and sponsored lectures and meetings, in addition to raising funds to suppo~t the establishment of Jewish settlements in Palestine. It continued to perform these same activities following the establishment of the state of Israel.
B'nai Zion has also been involved in local activities. It was active in anti-missionary efforts and also provided educational and cultural programming for children.
