Admin History/Bio
Benjamin Gershon Kayfetz was born on December 24, 1916 in Toronto, graduating from the University of Toronto in 1939, with a B.A. in modern languages. Between the years 1941 and 1943, he worked as a high school teacher in Huntsville and Niagara Falls. In 1943, he joined the war effort, working for the Department of National Defense in Postal Censorship and was responsible for reviewing prisoner of war mail. After the war, Kayfetz traveled to British Occupied Germany where he worked as a censor of telecommunications with the Control Commission until 1947.
Upon returning to Toronto, he was hired as the National Director of Community Relations by the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC), and as the Executive (National) Director of the Joint Community Relations Committee (JCRC), a CJC - B'nai B'rith cooperative organization. He also served as the Central Region Executive Director of the CJC between 1973 and 1978. During his tenure, he worked with various churches, unions and minority groups to develop anti-discrimination laws and for the protection of minority and religious rights. Kayfetz was also actively involved in promoting the welfare of Jewish Communities worldwide, and made visits to Cuba in 1962 and 1965, and Russia in 1985, to study and report on the state of these Jewish Communities. After his retirement in 1985, he was awarded the Samuel Bronfman Medal by the Canadian Jewish Congress. In recognition of his efforts to promote Human Rights, he was also awarded the Order of Canada in 1986.
In addition to his professional activities, Kayfetz wrote articles for various Jewish publications under both his own name and the pseudonym, Gershon B. Newman, and gave a weekly radio address on CHIN radio addressing various contemporary Jewish issues. He was also actively involved in the Toronto Jewish Historical Society (serving as its president), Canadian Jewish Historical Society and Yiddish Luncheon Circle. Ben Kayfetz died in 2002.

Scope and Content
File contains a kit distributed by the Fair Employment Practices Commission regarding combating racial and religious discrimination in the workplace. This kit was distributed to Ben Kayfetz in his capacity as the National Director of Community Relations at the Canadian Jewish Congress.
Notes
"To gauge public opinion, the JPRC commissioned the Canadian Institute of Public Opinion to take a poll on anti-discrimination legislation. Canadians were asked to consider the following: 'In some parts of the United States, it is against the law to refuse a man a job because of his race, color or religion. Some people approve of this because it ensures equality for all; others disapprove, claiming it interferes with employers. Would you approve or disapprove of such a regulation in this province?'(77) Although the public would remain unaware of it, the Canadian Jewish Congress paid for the poll. Congress officials did so because they were uncertain of the outcome and wanted to reserve the right of publication in the event that the results were unfavourable.(78) Since a majority of those polled favoured anti-discrimination legislation, the results formed the basis of a massive publicity campaign in Ontario. Editors of newspapers and magazines could now confidently be approached to publicize fair employment practices legislation. The poll's results were also included in a fair employment kit that was prepared by the Canadian Jewish Congress and distributed to a large number of community groups." - Ruth Frager and Carmela Patrias
