Admin History/Bio
Pidyon Ha'Ben in Hebrew means redemption of the first born son. In this ceremony it refers to the first born son. The Pidyon Ha'Ben ceremony allows the father of his first born son to buy back his child from service to the priesthood. On the 31st day following the birth, the father brings the firstborn male to the Kohen (someone of priestly descent) and informs the Kohen that the child is the firstborn of the mother. The Kohen then asks if the father is giving the son to him, or does he wish to redeem him. The father then indicates that he wishes to redeem him. The father then gives the Kohen five silver coins (or its equivalent value) and recites a short prayer acknowledging the commandment of redemption of the firstborn male. The Kohen then passes the money over the child’s head, releasing the child from his service to the priesthood, and says the priestly benediction.
Scope and Content
File consists of images taken of the Schwartz family at the Pidyon Ha'Ben ceremony for Gary Solway Images consist of photographs of family members taking part in this ceremony or mingling at the home of Alex Solway and of the ceremony itself with David Rotenberg acting as the Kohen.

Admin History/Bio
The Park Plaza Hotel, originally called the Queen's Park Plaza, began construction in 1928. However, because of financial problems in the Depression it was not completed until 1936. Prior to its completion it was bought by the Park Plaza Company, a group of investors including Harry Rotenberg of Yolles and Rotenberg and Joseph Schwartz, Sylvia Schwartz's father. It was originally used as a hotel, residences and office space. Through the 1940s and 1950s it was a popular hot spot, acting as a venue for entertainers such as Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington. In the 1960s it became a popular location with the literary crowd, including Margaret Atwood and Mordecai Richler.
It was eventually bought by the Hyatt chain and re-named the Park Hyatt Toronto.
Scope and Content
File consists of images of a party in the ballroom at the Park Plaza Hotel. Those pictured include members of the Schwartz, Yolles, Halbert and Wintrob families. Also included are images of Sylvia Schwartz, the singer Phyllis Marshall and musicians.
