Admin History/Bio
During the Second World War, Dunkelman served as a major in the Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada. After enlisting in 1940, he became a platoon commander. Dunkelman took part in the second wave of D-Day landings in 1944 and later assisted in the final Allied assault on Germany, earning the Distinguished Service Order. He left the army in 1945 after the war had ended. The Queen's Own Rifles Association and the Canadian Society for the Weizmann Institute of Science organized a reception in 1976 to honour the publication of Dunkelman's autobiography, Dual Allegiance.

Administrative History
The Second Encounter was a program first organized in 1976 by a group of young adults at the request of the Holocaust Remembrance Committee of the Canadian Jewish Congress. By 1978, the program had morphed into a voluntary organization run by a lay leadership of executive officers. Through the years it had been co-sponsored by the Toronto Jewish Congress and the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. The pupose of the program was to explore and discuss themes related to the Holocaust and the Jewish experience during the Second World War. The program would include opening remarks, a keynote speaker, seminars, and film presentations. Speakers included academics, community leaders, rabbis, authors and Holocaust survivors. Themes over the years included: Explorations in the Canadian-Jewish Experience; An Encounter with Israel; Perspectives on Antisemitism; and Judaism: Religion and Identity. Sam Hoffer was the Chairman of the Second Encounter Committee and later the President of the Second Encounter organization.

Admin History/Bio
The Zionist Organization was founded by Theodor Herzl at the First Zionist Congress in Basle in 1897; it was renamed the World Zionist Organization in 1960. Its goals were set forth in the Basle Program: "Zionism seeks to establish a home for the Jewish people in Palestine, secured under public law." The right of membership in the ZO was given to anyone who accepted the Basle Program and purchased the Zionist shekel (dues). The first constitution was passed by the Third Congress in 1899 and amended over the years.
At the First Zionist Congress, the Zionist movement organized itself as a worldwide organization with permanent institutions. The supreme institution was, and still is, the Zionist Congress. The elected institutions that function between congresses are the Zionist General Council and the Zionist Executive; the latter carries out the movement's policies. The Zionist Congress also elects a law court, an attorney and a comptroller. The Zionist Executive is headed by its chairman, who is also the president of the ZO.
Since its foundation, the ZOC has established companies and institutions to carry out its policies; these include Keren Hayesod, the Jewish National Fund, the Jewish Colonial Trust, and the Jewish Colonial Trust's subsidiary, the Anglo-Palestine Bank.
The WZO holds a congress every four years, which is used as a forum to bring members of the organization from around the world together and discuss ideas as well as elect new officials.
Scope and Content
The records in this series primarily document the 28th World Zionist Congress which was held in 1972. The files consist of material which include: biographies of participants; election committees; resolutions; names of delegates; photographs; and election rules.
The series also contains material documenting the election process of executives that took place in Canada and was arranged by ZOC.
