Scope and Content
Accession consists of four scanned photographs and one scanned newspaper clipping relating to the Gorbet family of Owen Sound, Ontario.
Administrative History
Benjamin Gorbach was born in Kiev, Russia in 1885, one of 13 children. Escaping harsh conditions there, he immigrated to North America at the age of 18, going first to New York City and then to Toronto in 1904. With his name changed to Gorbet, Benjamin met Russian-born Pearl Rudnitsky (b. 1890) and they married in 1909. Three children, Harry, Reuben and Bess, were born in Toronto. Reuben died tragically in a bathtub accident. Following an adventurous but unsuccessful attempt to make a living as farmers outside the city, the family returned to Toronto, where their son Frank was born. Previously, Gorbet had studied to be a furrier in New York, and when the couple moved to Owen Sound in 1919, he established Gorbet's Furs. Two more sons and a daughter, Avraham (Abe), Norman and Taubyl, were born in Owen Sound. Benjamin died at his home in 1955 at the age of 70. His wife, affectionately known as “Mom Gorbet” lived on in the community for 13 years.

Administrative History
Lottie Glass is the daughter of Rabbi Manfred Levison and Rega (née Wolf) Levison. The Glass family including Lottie's siblings Miriam (m. Rabovsky) and Benny moved to Canada in 1947. They emigrated from China where they had been living since 1939. In Canada, the family first settled in Medicine Hat, Alberta and moved to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia in 1949. In 1950 they settled in Ontario first moving to Welland and then Owen Sound (1950-1952). In the summer of 1952, the family moved to Toronto and lived on Palmerston Avenue. Miriam and her husband Mike Rabovsky remained in Owen Sound. In 1954 after the death of his wife Rega, Rabbi Levison travelled to the United States in search of work and eventually settled in Brooklyn, New York.
