Physical Description
1 film reel (ca. 60 mins.) : b&w, si. : 16 mm : 16fps
Date
1929-[194-?]
Scope and Content
Accession consists of a 16mm b&w, silent film reprinted (probably in the 1980s) on modern 16mm sound stock from the original group of individual short silent 16mm films shot by Sol Sky from 1929 through the late 1940s. Among the shots are scenes of: Sol Sky in front of his South Porcupine store Sky’s Specialty Shop; Kovetsky’s Ltd. Men’s Store in South Porcupine; downtown main-street in South Porcupine; family members on skis in winter; a very early propeller-pushed “ski doo”; a July 1, 1929 Dominion Day parade in South Porcupine; a family visit to a city; and a winter scene of a bi-plane on a frozen lake. Many country-side and lake-shore family outings are also included. (Note: a complete shot-list has been created for the contents of this film.)
Administrative History
Sol Sky was born in Russia in 1887 and his family arrived in Canada in 1906. He move to South Porcupine in 1911, and was married to Fanny Rosenbloom in 1912. They were among the earliest Jewish merchants to move to South Porcupine, Ontario, where a gold-mining boom was just beginning. Owner of a successful store, he was able to purchase one of the first 16mm silent Kodak home movie cameras, which he used to film family, friends, other residents, businesses and events during the following two decades. The family lived in South Porcupine until 1960.

30 cm of textual records
Date
1911-1949
Scope and Content
The accession includes a variety of items such as a bound volume of the Toronto UJWF annual reports (1940-1949), a hagadah from 1911 used by Sol Eisen, a first edition volume of the Naomi Cook Book (1928), ketubot for Sol and Rebecca Eisen and Ethel Soloway to Ben Litvack and scrapbook and diaries produced by Sol Eisen (1915-1943). The scrapbooks include many clippings documenting his own accomplishments, family simchas or other topics that were of interest to him. The diaries are mostly hand written and detail his thoughts and activities from the time that he was a student until he was employed with the Canada Life Assurance Company.
Custodial History
The donor is Sol Eisen's son. He gave Steve Speisman the diaries and scrapbooks to microfilm in 1979 and the OJA has had those copies in their holdings since that time. A copy of the microfilm was also provided to the Multicultural History Society of Ontario.
Administrative History
Sol Eisen was born in Toronto on 15 February 1898. He was the son of Abraham and Nettie (Baker) Eisen. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto. It was there that he established the Menorah Society in 1917. He graduated in 1918. He then completed a post-graduate degree at Harvard (1919) and completed his law studies at Osgoode Law School (1921).
Soon after completing his studies, he married Rebecca Dunkelman on 14 June 1922. The wedding took place at Holy Blossom and was officiated by Rabbi Brickner. The couple had three children: Morton, Annette (m. Yolles) and Gloria (m. Baskin).
He initially worked as a barister and had an office within the Dominion Bank Building at Queen and Bay. In 1936 he was offered a position with the Canada Life Assurance Company. He became one of their leading sellers in North America. He served on the board of the companies Millionaire's Club for many years.
Eisen was very involved in the Jewish community as well. He was a member of the Primrose Club, the Island Yacht Club, the Palestine Lodge and the Holy Blossom Brotherhood. He assisted in the formation of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of Toronto as well as the Canadian Jewish Congress. In fact, he attended the first CJC meeting in Montreal in 1919 as a Toronto delegate. He was also one of the founders of JIAS.
Outside of the community he was involved in and was a founder and president of the Forest Hill Lion's Club (1954) and was active in the Masons, the ROM and the Toronto Board of Trade.
Eisen was also an avid collector of Canadiana. His holdings included books, pamphlets, printed ephemera from across the country. He passed away in 1974 and left his collection or rare books and other items to the University of Waterloo.
