Administrative History
Morton (Mort) Ainsley (1937-1995) was born in London, Ontario to Esther and Irving Ainsley. Esther (née Rash) was born in Toronto and Irving in Russia; the two met at Stitsky’s textile store on Bathurst Street in Toronto and moved to London in the 1940s. In London, Irving Ainsley owned Ainsley’s dress store and was a co-founder and president of B’nai Israel congregation. The family were friends with the Siskinds and Rubinoffs, going on fishing trips with the Rubinoffs and cruises with others in the Jewish community. Irving loved to film, and filmed Second World War newsreels in the movie theatre.
Morton graduated from the University of Western Ontario School of Business Administration, and then the University of Toronto Law School in 1962. Following graduation, he worked at the Department of Justice and at Minden, Gross, Grafstein and Greenstein. In 1969, he and Sandra Gula were married at Beth Tzedec Synagogue. They had three children, Efrem, Andrew, and Daniel. He died in September 1995 at Toronto General Hospital.

Scope and Content
Accession consists of photographs of the Dr. Alexis and Rabbi David Jerome Lerner family during COVID-19 pandemic in the Humewood-Cedarvale area of Toronto. Photographs include a pandemic Upsheren of daughter Magda Rose Lerner, images depicting the co-parenting arrangement of the Lerner and the Aviva Bellman-Steve Bercovici families and their children, Magda Rose and Levi Lerner and Eitan Bercovici, as well as a Zoom toast given by Rabbi David Lerner in celebration of the successful PhD defense by Alexis Lerner.
The donor submitted the following descriptions of the photographs:
"Our family observes the tradition of not cutting a child's hair until after their third birthday. We do this to coincide with the three-year period when fruit may not be picked from new trees, the age when a child begins their Jewish educational journey, and the superstition that long hair would protect our sons from the evil eye (and the statistical reasoning that, in order to protect sons from the evil eye by letting their hair grow long, we must also insist that our daughters grow their hair long). Our daughter turned three in June 2020, three months after we began lockdown. We did a small ritual Upsheren at home in June—my husband, Rabbi David Jerome Lerner, said a few words before he and I cut a lock of curls. Once lockdowns became slightly lessened in July, I brought Magda Rose to get her first haircut (in) a month. This felt safe as the salon was extremely strict and required prior appointments, good health, social distancing, and facemasks. It was so memorable for all of us, especially for my daughter, who loved having her scalp massaged (don't we all?). A moment of semi-normalcy and Jewish ritual amidst the COVID-19 pandemic."
"With groups for new parents cancelled and increased isolation by design, the Lerner family and Bellman-Bercovici family blended together to raise our babies, Levi and Eitan, with as much normalcy as quarantine could allow. The families were close since they met in Detroit at the Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue almost a decade earlier. We spent our summer days in the backyard and on the porch, celebrating birthdays and milestones—eating solids, babbling, sitting up, crawling, and walking. One of my favourite memories was buying an inflatable swimming pool; the stores were all sold out and we had to meet someone in a parking in York to buy it out of their trunk. As of October 2020, the boys have spent the majority of their lives under COVID-19-related restrictions."
"We've become accustomed to conducting the milestones of our lives digitally and remotely. Birthdays, funerals, and weddings during COVID-19 shifted online as businesses closed and public health concerns became tantamount. With schools closed and her children homebound, Dr. Alexis Lerner conducted her PhD dissertation defense from a hotel room. In this video, her husband, Rabbi David Jerome Lerner (previously of Beth Tzedec Synagogue in Toronto), congratulates his wife on this professional milestone from his pulpit in New York. Alexis is a scholar of comparative authoritarianism and Russian politics, so the two toast with straight vodka (hers from the mini-bar)."

Admin History/Bio
In 1914, a building was bought on Fifth Street in Crowland and converted into a synagogue, dedicated in 1917. A shochet was retained when available, a mikvah was erected adjacent to the Shul, and a plot of land for a cemetery was obtained. By 1942, there were only a handful of Jews still living in Crowland so the old synagogue was sold and the Italian-Canadian Club on Garner Avenue in Welland was purchased.

Scope and Content
This accession consists of twenty-two photographs taken by the prominent architectural photographer Robert Burley. The photographs document the interior and exterior features of six of Toronto's original synagogues: the Kiever, Knesseth Israel, First Narayever, Anshei Minsk, Shaarei Tzedec, and the Beach Hebrew Institute.
These photographs were part of an exhibit held at the Arthur Anderson Gallery that ran from February to May 2005. Burley selected these synagogues for his project because they were the only synagogues in the city still operating in their original buildings. His images reveal the architectural details of the buildings as well as the rich interiors, highlighting the murals, religious artifacts, and interior structure of each building.
Administrative History
Robert Burley graduated with a master's degree in fine arts from the School of Art Institute in Chicago in 1986. He is an accomplished architectural photographer who has exhibited his work around the world. He is a professor at the School of Image Arts at Ryerson University.

Clanton Park Synagogue was an orthodox synagogue that began as a shteibel in 1955 in the newly built up area of North York. Originally, services were held in homes or rented quarters. In 1957, land was purchased on Lowesmoor Avenue, and in 1961, the synagogue building was dedicated. The congregation, which initially consisted of 20 families, has grown steadily over the years and now has a membership of over 300 families. Sol Edell was one of the founding members of Clanton Park. He was president of the synagogue and served on the Board. He was involved in the purchase of the property and supervised the construction, the renovation and upkeep of the building. As well, he was active in the programmes sponsored by the synagogue such as the Long Life Club, which provided activities for seniors. He attended services on a daily basis and retained his membership until his death in 2000.

Admin History/Bio
Shomrai Shabbos is an orthodox congregation which was founded in 1896. Sol Edell’s grandfather, Rabbi Yosef Weinreb, served as rabbi of the congregation from 1900 until 1942. The synagogue was in several downtown locations until it moved to its present location on Glengrove Avenue in North York in 1966. The congregation has grown steadily over the years and now has a membership of over 350 families. Sol Edell’s family were members of the congregation when he was a child. Although he retained his membership in the congregation after his marriage, he rarely attended the services at the synagogue. However, he did continue to participate in fundraising on behalf of the synagogue.
Custodial History
The earlier records were collected by Sol's grandfather, Rabbi Yosef Weinreb, or his father, Paul Edell. After their deaths, Sol maintained his membership in the congregation and continued to receive material from the synagogue.
