Admin History/Bio
The Home News magazine was first issued in 1957 to keep the public informed about the activities and operation of the Jewish Home for the Aged and Baycrest Hospital. Initially, it also provided residents with a forum for expression as some of them sat on the magazine's Editorial Board. In Sept. 1969, the publication changed its name to Baycrest News to reflect Baycrest's name change to the Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care. Another change to the publication took place in 1982, when its format was altered from a magazine to a tabloid. It was issued between three and four times each year. Baycrest News is no longer published.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of issues of the Baycrest News and its predecessor, Home News.

Admin History/Bio
In 1913 a charitable organization called the Ezras Noshim Society was formed to help elderly women. Ezras Noshim start collecting funds in 1917 to purchase a home that would be converted into Toronto's first Jewish Old Folks Home. The forerunner to Baycrest Centre opened in 1919 as the Toronto Jewish Old Folks Home on Cecil Street in downtown Toronto where the women of Ezras Noshim made beds, cooked kosher meals, washed sheets and sponsored fund-raising events.
In 1954, the Jewish Home for the Aged opened on Bathurst Street to accomodate their expanding needs and a new feature -- Baycrest Hospital.
This location continued to expand including a new building for residents in 1968, the Baycrest Terrace and The Joseph E. and Minnie Wagman Centre in 1976. These additions enabled Baycrest to expand their services to include a community centre, an enhanced apartment building, a home for the aged, a day care service and a hospital.
In 1986 a new Baycrest Hospital was erected, and in 1989, the Rotman Research Institute, which is also affiliated with the University of Toronto, opened to create a research facility enabling top researchers to study and find new treatment methods for the elderly.
In recent years, Baycrest's research activities have expanded to include the Clinical Epidemiology and Evaluation Unit (est. 1995), which evaluates clinical programs and conducts long-term studies of health issues affecting older adults and the Kunin Lunenfeld Clinical Research Unit (est. 1996), which links researchers with Baycrest clinical departments to enable prompt implementation of research findings. These two programs merged in 1998 to become the Kunin-Lunenfeld Applied Research Unit.
Apotex Centre, the Jewish Home for the Aged and the Louis and Leah Posluns Centre for Stroke and Cognition opened in 2000. This centre is responsible for residents with progressive dementia and vascular dementia.
Baycrest Centre also provides numerous cultural and religious programs for the inhabitants and the greater community, including a heritage museum, art exhibits and a Holocaust program.

Admin History/Bio
With the post-WW II expansion of Toronto's Jewish population, the original Mount Sinai Hospital on Yorkville Avenue became overcrowded, while its treatment capacities appeared ever more outdated. By 1949 an improved economy made it possible to begin the necessary planning for a much large replacement hospital at 550 University Ave. Although fundraising for the construction this facility was not the responsibility of the United Jewish Welfare Fund, many of its senior executives were also on the Hospital Board. Also, the entire Toronto Jewish Community was to be canvassed for the funds to build it. The proven fundraising expertise of the UJWF, its donor lists, and the goals of its own annual campaign ensured that constant correspondence and cooperation between the two was both necessary for success and vital to the avoidance of campaign competition. The continued success and growth of community contributions to both was the outcome of this ongoing collaboration. The New Mount Sinai Hospital opened in mid-1953, while the campaigns to continue improving and expanding its resources continue to the present.
Scope and Content
Series consists of correspondence and occasional reports documenting the relationship between the UJWF and the Board of the New Mount Sinai Hospital about the fundraising campaigns for the new hospital being constructed on Univeristy Avenue during the 1950's. Also included are two photographs of the new hospital. Files in this sub-series have been arranged chronologically.

Admin History/Bio
Baycrest's library officially opened in May 1957; however library services were available to residents as early as 1956. The library distributed complimentary local newspapers to residents on a daily basis, and once a week a volunteer visited residents with the book cart so that those unable to make it to the library could access its material. A Talmudic Study Group met in the library every afternoon and a Yiddish reading group met in the library twice a week. The Library Committee's first Chairmen were Hilda Spivak and Frances Wintrob.
Scope and Content
File consists of photographs and textual records documenting the operation and activities of Baycrest's library for residents. Included are meeting notices and minutes, correspondence, event invitations, bookmarks of the Jewish Public Library, and material related to the library's involvement in Toronto's first Jewish Book Fair. Also included are images of the Talmudic Study Group meetings and library staff.
