Scope and Content
Accession includes three portraits from the 1920s that were sent to Helen Mark's mother as postcards. The majority of the records document David Mark's career as UJA Campaign Director and consist of: photographs, correspondence, invitations, UJA mission records, clippings as well as other material.
Custodial History

Administrative History
David Marks was born in Toronto and was the youngest of three brothers. He moved to Hamilton after marrying his wife Helen during the 1950s and opened up a shoe store. They had two children together, Irving and Anita. After eight years, they returned to Toronto. In 1962, he accepted a position as manager of shelter workshops for Jewish Vocational Services (JVS). He then started working for UJA and in 1968 became its campaign director. He served in that capacity for fourteen years. During that time, he helped raise millions of dollars through the campaign and lead some of the earliest UJA missions to Israel. He travelled to Israel more than thirty times and organized the visits of Israeli leaders to Toronto including David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meier, Menachem Begin, Moshe Dayan, and others.
In 1982, he left his position as campaign director and became the director of development at Mount Sinai Hospital. He then opened up a consulting business with three other community professionals, which provided help to other organizations with their fundraising efforts.
In 2004, David passed away after battling cancer. He left behind his wife, two children and four grandchildren.

Administrative History
Isadore Moses moved his family to Canada in 1928. He became president of Toronto’s Husiatiner Klaus Shul, volunteered to co-design Bathurst Lawn Cemetery’s floor plan, and was committed to Jewish education.
His son Lewis Moses, the youngest of seven children, was also deeply committed to the Jewish community. Despite running a busy chartered accountancy practice, the former air force officer devoted much of his energy to Jewish causes. He worked diligently for the Zionist Revisionist Organization, United Jewish Appeal, United Israel Appeal, State of Israel Bonds, Jewish National Fund, Canadian Zionist Federation, the Board of Jewish Education, Eitz Chaim Schools, and many other organizations. He was co-founder of Torath Emeth Congregation and a Board Member of Shaarei Shomayim Congregation. Lewis Moses was honoured at the Negev dinner in 1992

Scope and Content
This accession consists of photographs of headstones at the Roselawn Cemetery in Toronto. The photographs were taken by volunteers working on the project which meant to capture genealogical information from the Jewish cemeteries around Toronto. Some of the information from the stones have been uploaded to the JewishGen's burial registry database, however, the photographs contain additional information such as Hebrew names and birth and death dates.
Taken alongside the stone in each photograph is an accompanying marker indicating the section and row of the grave, which corresponds to a physical list filed with each binder. Researchers will have to search for the deceased person's name on JewishGen first and locate the section and row of the stone, before being able to find the photograph in the binders.
Administrative History
The Jewish Genealogical Society of Canada (Toronto) was formally established in 1985. It is now one of seven Jewish genealogical societies in Canada. Its mission is to stimulate interest in the pursuit of Jewish genealogical research; to facilitate the pursuit of Jewish genealogical research locally and globally; and to provide an environment for fellowship and mutual exchange among persons with an interest in Jewish genealogy.

Admin History/Bio
The Ontario government was putting pressure on the Jewish cemeteries spread around Toronto to clear up the disorder in the burial grounds to ensure a system of perpetual care. The cemeteries were approached with this in view. In the end, through the efforts of Al Ginsburg of Beth Tzedec, the Dawes Rd. and Jones Avenue properties were reorganized, a permanent fulltime groundskeeper was engaged (A.M. Levy) and adminstration was improved. The other cemeteries remained outside of this new organization which was named the Amalgamated Dawes Road Trustees. Some of these made their own arrangements. Canadian Jewish Congress lent its administrative help to the Amalgamated Dawes Rd. Trustees, hence this committee.
