Admin History/Bio
Aaron and Sarah (née Snider) Levine (1832-1915) were from Minsk. Sarah immigrated to Toronto with her children in 1887. In 1892, Abraham (1940-1897) and Rachel Cass (1838-1903) came to Toronto with their younger chilldren, following their elder children who had immigrated before them.
The Levine children consisted of the following individuals: Annie (m. Salamansky) (1861-1931); Moses (Moishe) Joseph (1864-1919); Michael (1869-1918); Abraham; Sam; and Rebecca (m. Samuels) (b. 1875).
The Cass children consisted of: Fayge (m. Sax) (1861-1942); Anna (Hannah) (m. Segel) (1863-1930); Martha (m. Soskin) (1866-1946); Dave Cass (1869-1959); Dora (m. Levy) (b.1870); Sarah (m. Levine) (1876-1978); Annie (m. Smith) (1880-1952); Bill Cass; and Phillip Cass.
Sarah Snider Levine lived with her son, Moses, and daughter-in-law Sarah for thirteen years. The couple first lived on Chestnut Street and then moved to Centre Avenue. They later relocated to Spadina Avenue near Dundas around 1903, and finally, moved to 224 Beverley Street near College.

Admin History/Bio
Moses (Moishe) Joseph Levine (1864-1919) immigrated to Toronto from Minsk in 1887. He was the son of Aaron and Sarah Levine (née Snider) (1832-1915). He began working as a peddler and later became a grocer. Sarah Levine (née Cass) (1876-1978) emigrated from Russia to Montreal around 1891, with her younger brother, Phillip. She then came to Toronto and initially lived with her sister, possibly Annie Smith, on York Street. Her first employment in the city was as a dressmaker. She was the daughter of Abraham Cass (1840-1897) and Rachel Rebecca Cass (née Cowart?) (1838-1903), who both immigrated to Canada in 1892.
Moses and Sarah met in Toronto and were married in 1895. They went to Midland with Moses' brother, Michael, and opened a store there. Their first daughter, Mary Soskin (1895-1990), was born in Midland that same year. However, after a few years, Moses and Sarah decided to move back to Toronto while Michael stayed in Midland with his wife, Anne Woods, and their children.
Moses and Sarah Levine first lived on Chestnut Street, then moved to Centre Avenue, then 115 Spadina Avenue near Dundas around 1903, and finally to 224 Beverley Street near College. Moses' mother, Sarah, lived with them for thirteen years. They had six additional children: Fanny (1898-1923), Anne Thuna (1899-1964), Abe (b. 1901), Harry (b. 1903), Rita (1905-1975), and Dorothy Bliss (1909-1992).
In the 1910 Toronto City Directory, Moses is listed as a grocer at 115 Spadina Avenue at Adelaide. Once he was able to, he moved into a larger wholesale grocery at 25 Jarvis Street in Toronto and is listed there in the 1920 Toronto City Directory.
The Levine family belonged to Goel Tzedec Congregation, which was located in a small church building purchased for the synagogue on University Avenue at Elm Street. A larger building was later built on University Avenue.
Moses died in 1919 after accidentally falling down an elevator shaft at his grocery store. The family closed the business shortly thereafter and the family continued to live on Beverley Street.
Scope and Content
Series consists of photographs which include the immediate family members and friends of the Moses Levine family. Series also contains one file of textual records relating to Sarah Levine's 90th and 94th birthdays and life membership in the Baycrest Women's Auxiliary.

Admin History/Bio
[Chana?] (Annie) Levine (1861-1931) was the sister of Moses Levine. She married Pesach (Philip) Salamansky (1861-1943) and they immigrated to Toronto from Russia in 1887. In 1903 the Salamanskys lived at 27 Centre Street and operated a grocery store from the same location. They later moved to 204 Chestnut Street and 268 Brunswick Avenue. Their children were Harry (b. 1889), Louis (b. 1890), Fanny (b. 1893), Gertie (b. 1894), Abe (b. 1899), and Sam (b. 1903).
A number of Salamanskys lived in Toronto and some of them shortened their names to Salem in the 1920s and 1930s, perhaps in connection with Salem’s Garage on 479 Spadina St., which would have been an identifiable Salamansky family-owned business. Harry and Hinda may have been relations of Pesach.
Louis Salamansky, son of Pesach and Anna Salamansky, and resident of 204 Chestnut Street, married Anna Kosloff in 1922 and worked as a plumber. Another Louis Salamansky (b. 1883), possibly his cousin, was married to Mary, and had two daughters, Ettie and Sylvia (both born in 1907). Harry Salamansky married Hannah (née Horowitz) in 1911, and also worked as a plumber and hardware merchant.
Scope and Content
Series consists of photographs of members of the Salamansky (Salem) family.

Admin History/Bio
Jack Edward Thuna was an herbalist who owned and operated a health food store in Toronto. The business dates back to 1888 and was started by his father, Dr. Max H. Thuna. The store was originally located at 436 Queen Street West and was called Thuna's Balsam Remedies, Limited. Jack and Max were also listed as chiropractors in the 1925 Toronto Jewish City and Information Directory. The store later moved to 298 Danforth Avenue and its name was changed to Dr. Thuna Nature Remedies. It still exists today on Danforth as Thuna Herbals.
Jack Thuna was married to Anne Levine in 1925, and they had two sons: Mortimer, born in 1928, and Alvin, born in 1934. Mortimer and Alvin also became master herbalists and helped run the family business. Alvin's son, Joel Thuna, is also a master herbalist who currently lives in Toronto.
