Admin History/Bio
The Jewish Community Centre Archives Committee was established in 1982, in order to document the history of the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. of Toronto. The committee was chaired by Bert Fine and was mandated by the JCC of Toronto's Executive Committee to collect historical and archival material from the community, which was to be donated to the Ontario Jewish Archives.
