[192-?]-1953
Scope and Content
Accession consists of material primarily documenting kosher meat scandals and strikes in Toronto in the 1920s and 1930s. There are complete pages of some documents and portions of others. The documents are flyers (public notices) in Yiddish (with some Hebrew in religious context and quotations) to do with a scandal or several scandals in which it became clear a number of butchers were operating outside Rabbinical Board supervision and therefore selling (assumed to be) treif meat to Toronto Jews. Secondary scandal with Rabbi Yehuda Leib Graubart, who allegedly split off from the Rabbinical Board with six butchers to do business outside the union, with wholesalers, and gaining more money than union butchers and the rabbis working with them. Another thread relates to a strike for cheaper meat, including meetings of women picketers, and then for better conditions for local butchers. The flyers mostly fall between 1920-1940. All are from Toronto. Lists of local butchers’ shops with addresses and names are included.
Additional flyers cover Communist protests and protest meetings against German fascism and pogroms, specifically Hitler's government's prosecution of the Communist Party of Germany related to the Reichstag fire. Also included are a 1953 flyer for the tenth anniversary commemoration of the Latvian-Lithuanian Jews’ annihilation, and an open letter to Rabbi Abraham Aaron Price regarding his title.

Administrative History
Pearl Miller Zucker (née Sidman) was born on 18 Jan. 1914 in Manchester, England to Jennie Sidman Cohen (née Davis) (b. 5 May 1885, Russia-d. 31 Dec. 1983, Toronto) and Simon Sidman. Miller was the middle name given to Pearl at birth by her father. Pearl's mother Jennie had married Simon Sidman on 21 Aug. 1910. Simon died on 10 Dec. 1928 at age 45. Jennie then married Myer Cohen on Feb. 15, 1956 in Manchester, who died sometime between 1956 and 1959. Jennie became a landed immigrant in Canada in 1959.
Moses Solomon "Solly" Zucker (Sugar) (b. 6 Feb. 1908, County of Gateshead, England-d. 22 Jan. 2001, Toronto) was born to Isaac and Esther Sugar (née Greenbaum). He married Pearl "Pesh" Sidman on 20 June 1934. Miller was Pearl's given middle name. The couple had two sons: Gerald Zucker (b. 5 July 1936) and Simon Zucker (b. 15 Nov. 1937). Solly served with the fire brigade in Manchester during the Second World War.
The couple immigrated to Canada from England in June 1952 for economic reasons. Pearl had a cousin named Mark Gilbert already living in Canada. The couple and their two sons first landed in Montreal, but only stayed a year before moving to Toronto. Upon arrival in Canada, Solly got a job with the Canadian Government, possibly with the RCAF at Downsview. Pearl worked for Bell Canada. The family belonged to Shaarei Tefillah Synagogue and lived in the Bathurst and Eglinton area.
Pearl died on 20 February 2018 at the age of 104.

Admin History/Bio
Julius Pincus Katz (1884-1964) was a Toronto businessman who held important positions in many Jewish community organizations, and was a co-founder and president of Mizrachi-Hapoel Hamizrachi of Toronto, the religious Zionist organization. Katz was born in Rakow, Poland, on 12 Dec. 1884, the son of Abraham Mordecai and Tzivia Katz. In 1904, he married Anna Lea Sterenbach, and they moved to Toronto in 1907. Julius and Anna had four children: Rachel, Bernard, Morris, and Nathan.
Katz became a tobacconist in 1926, and was president of Reliable Tobacco Company, Toronto, which supplied tobacco products to small stores in the city. In the late 1920s, he served as president of Talmud Torah Eitz Chaim, an orthodox Jewish school, and was a member of the executive committees of the Zionist Council of Toronto, the Jewish Old Folks Home, and the United Jewish Welfare Fund in the 1930s and 1940s. He also served as a director of the Canadian Jewish Congress. Throughout his life, Katz was heavily involved in fundraising for Zionist organizations and Jewish communities in Israel, for seminaries, and for other religious and educational institutions. He also served as president of his synagogue, Beth Jacob Congregation. Mr. Katz died in Toronto on 23 Apr. 1964.
Scope and Content
The fonds documents Katz's work with Mizrachi-Hapoel Hamizrachi, the Toronto Zionist Council, the United Jewish Welfare Fund, and other Jewish organizations in Toronto, as well as his fundraising efforts for various theological seminaries and the Jewish National Fund. The records include correspondence and memoranda, meeting minutes, subject files, financial records, newspaper clippings and scrapbooks. The fonds also includes some family records and correspondence, and some business records from the Reliable Tobacco Company. The photographs in the fonds include family pictures and photographs of conferences and public events attended by Julius Katz, including events at which he received awards in recognition of his volunteer work. The objects in the fonds include award plaques received by Katz, and badges from conventions attended by Katz.

Administrative History
Joe Roseman's parents, Bessie Baranski and David Roseman, came to Canada separately from Poland in 1918. Bessie had siblings already in Ontario: her sister Channah and brother-in-law Charles Glass, living in Kitchener at the time; brother Gordon; and brother Joe. All three brothers worked in second hand furniture and eventually switched to new furniture. They Anglicized the family name from Baranski to Brown.
Settling in Kitchener by 1920, David Roseman had a job running the tuck shop at McBrine Baggage. By 1922 he had joined his brother-in-law Charles Glass in his store, Central Furniture on King Street East. David's wife Bessie helped deliver furniture until her brother Joe came on. Joe died in 1945 after being hit by a car in front of the store.
David and Bessie had five children: Samuel, Esther (who married Sam Moldaver), Max, Ruth (married Henry Katz of Hamilton), and Joe. Samuel served and was killed in action in the Second World War. Joe began working at the furniture business in his second year of high school (1938) and stayed there until 1962 with his father retired and the business was sold. After this, Joe's brother Max opened his own store in Brantford; Joe opened one in Stratford; and Sam remained in Kitchener, opening his own small furniture store next to the original Central Furniture.
