Admin History/Bio
Murray Bernard Koffler was born in a four-room flat over his father's drugstore on College Street on January 22, 1924. His parents' names were Leon and Tiana [née Reinhorn] Koffler. Murray married Marvelle Seligman and they had five children named: Leon, Theo, Tom, Adam and Tiana.
Following in his father's footsteps, Murray was educated as a pharmacist and eventually took over the family drugstore when he was twenty-two years old. After making some profitable real-estate investments, he helped to co-found the Four Seasons Hotel chain, and created the first self-serve pharmacy in Canada. His entrepreneurial talents led the way to the creation of the giant pharmacy franchise, Shoppers Drug Mart.
A world renowned philanthropist, Murray Koffler’s donations and commitments have helped fund the creation of the Koffler Centre of the Arts, the Koffler Institute of Pharmacy Management, the Canadian Council for Native Business, the Council on Drug Abuse, and, as well, he has also held positions on numerous boards and organizations. His tireless efforts and achievements have been recognized with many awards, including becoming a member of the Order of Canada in 1977.

Accession consists of a Goel Tzedec Synagogue seat deed for Harry Yanover, purchased in 1907.
Administrative History
Goel Tzedec was established in 1883. It was originally an orthodox congregation founded by a group of recent immigrants from Lithuania and was first situated in a room at Richmond and York Streets. Three years later a former Methodist church at University Avenue at Elm Street was purchased and remodelled. In 1904 the congregation hired an architect to construct a new building and in February of 1907, the synagogue on University Avenue was dedicated. It became the largest synagogue in Toronto, accomodating 1200 congregants.
During the early decades of the twentieth century, Goel Tzedec became more ethnically mixed and established a religious school and women's auxiliary to help raise money and run special events. In 1925, the congregation joined the Conservative Synagogue Movement and introduced changes to its services.
In September of 1952, Goel Tzedec and its sister synagogue Beth Hamidrash Hagadol, amalgamated to form Beth Tzedec.
Harry Yanover was the grandfather of Rayna Rabin.

Administrative History
Sydney Harris (1917-2009) was born on June 23, 1917, to Samuel Aaron and Rose Harris (nee: Geldzaeler). Samuel worked as a salesman. Sydney's maternal grandparents, Mark and Yetta Geldzaeler (nee: Shumer) immigrated to Toronto in the 1880s. Mark Geldzaeler was the Chazan at Holy Blossom Temple. Sydney's paternal grandparents, Samuel and Sarah Harris (nee: Buker), and their children, also immigrated to Canada in the 1890s. Samuel Harris (senior) owned the Harris Delicatessen (later a tobacco store) and was one of the founders of the Hebrew Free Loan Society. Sydney Harris received degrees from the University of Toronto and Osgoode Hall Law School, and then worked as a lawyer in Ottawa. He, along with Harold Rubenstein, founded the law firm of Harris and Rubenstein. Appointed as a judge of the Ontario Provincial Court in 1976, he rendered decisions on very noteworthy cases. In 1978 he acquitted officers of the Pink Triangle Press and gay magazine Body Politic of charges of possession and distribution of obscene materials. He also dismissed the charges against Magder Furs for doing business on a Sunday. In 1988, he convicted NHL player Dino Ciccarelli for his on-ice attack on a player from the opposing team. He became a small claims court judge when he retired in 1982, and was also a part-time member of the Ontario Assessment Review Board, a referee for the Law Society of Upper Canada and a lay appointee of the Council for the Association of Ontario Land Surveyors. Sydney Harris was a human rights advocate, fighting for stronger laws in the Criminal Code to combat neo-Nazism. He was also a fervent supporter of the civil rights movement, even meeting with Martin Luther King Junior in 1963. He was active in the Jewish community, serving as president of the Canadian Council of Reform Congregations national president of Toronto Jewish Vocational Services, and president Canadian Friends of Boys Town Jerusalem. He was also a founding member of Upper Canada Lodge, B'nai Brith. Most notably, he served as president of Canadian Jewish Congress, after serving on CJC's National Executive Committee, Foreign Affairs Committee and Religious Welfare Committee. He was secretary of Holy Blossom Temple's board, and then active at Temple Sinai. He was also known for his opposition to religious education in public schools.
