Administrative History
Norman Springer is the son of Leddy Palmer and Samuel Springer of Kingston, Ontario. His maternal grandparents, Ben and Hinda Palmer, arrived in Kingston around 1900. They had five children: Lean, Sarah (Seddy; Norman's mother), Eva, Morris, and Shana. Around the same time Ben and Sarah Springer arrived in Belleville. They had four children: Fanny, Samuel (Norman's father), Jenny, and Charles.
Samuel and Seddy met in Sandbanks (near Picton) on holidays in the 1920s. They lived in Belleville for two years and then moved to Kingston in 1934/35. Sam had a strong affiliation with Belleville; he ran the Artistic Ladies’ Wear clothing store (taken over by Julius and Jenny Abramsky) in town. Later he swapped clothing stores with his brother-in-law (Abramsky) because the women wanted to be close to their families (Jenny Abramsky was originally from Belleville).
Norman's maternal grandfather, Ben Palmer, was very involved with the synagogue in Kingston, serving on the 1910 building committee. Sam was a business leader in Kingston and was also involved in Jewish activities and committees. He was the sole building chairman in charge of building the new synagogue in Kingston. His son, Jerry, and grandson, Ryan, were the committee chairs when the Robinson wing was built. Norm and his son Douglas (grandson) were chairs on the Otterburn House (Hillel) committee when major renovations were needed to it.
