The Administration Committee of the United Jewish Welfare fund was originally a Dec. 1, 1936 special committee, formed to examine the income and expenditures of Toronto Jewish agencies and also to examine the need for a new Toronto Jewish "Community Chest". A further series of meetings in early 1937 resulted the creation of the United Jewish Welfare Fund which would act as the sole fund-raising organization for an enlarged federation of all Jewish agencies. By June 1937 this special committee had been renamed the Administrative Committee, first of the Joint Campaign and, in July, of the new United Jewish Welfare Fund.
The first chair of the UJWF's now permanent Administration Committee, Ben Sadowski, was appointed its first Executive Director in 1939 but again served as Secretary for its January 1939 meeting.
With the success of its early campaigns, the major and long-term central responsibility of this committee became the allocation of collected funds to associated agencies. As well, of special importance was the committee's ongoing re-examination of the needs of, and funding formula allocations to, Toronto's Jewish schools.
As well as leading to the creation of the UJWF, the Administrative Committee was responsible for the creation of a permanent campaign office, staffed by a full-time Chair and Vice-Chair and supported by experienced community fund-raising staff. It was also occasionally required to examine administrative personnel and policy issues, budget issues, and produce new financial overviews of the UJWF.

In 1937, they were awarded the bronze medal in the Sixth Biennial Toronto Exhibition for their interiors to the Eglinton Theatre (400 Eglinton Ave. W.) in Toronto, considered to be the finest example of their Art deco design work.
Over the course of their careers, they designed many synagogues for the Jewish community, such as the Anshei Minsk and Shaarei Shomayim synagogues in Toronto, Beth Israel Synagogue, Edmonton, and Beth Israel Synagogue in Vancouver. They also designed the new Mount Sinai Hospital, the Oakdale Golf & Country Club, the Jewish Home for the Aged (Baycrest), and the Jewish Community Centres of Toronto and Hamilton.
