Sub-series consists of negatives and proofs of portraits taken by Sylvia Schwartz. Portraits were taken both in her studio and in her family home.

The earliest portraits taken are of Ruth Schwartz, Sylvia's sister. They are interesting in their use of props and lighting. Other early portraits are of Gertrude and Joseph Schwartz and Fanny Solway (nee Schwartz).
Other portraits include images of Gerald, Ralph and Rhoda Halbert (the children of Sylvia's cousin Faye Halbert), Jack and Jewell Schwartz (her uncle and cousin), Isaac, Jill and Jan Shleser (her brother-in-law and nieces) and Alex, Carol and Herbert Solway (her brother-in-law, niece and nephew).
Also included in the sub-series are three self-portraits of Sylvia each taken in a different session.

Admin History/Bio
As a portrait photographer, Sylvia Schwartz excelled at photographing children. Through the 1940s and 1950s she carved out a niche for herself, becoming well known in Toronto for specializing in this area. Because of her special relationship with children and the bond she was able to form with them, her child portraits display her most creative work.
Scope and Content
Series consists of negatives and proofs produced by Sylvia Schwartz in her portrait studio. Images depict children aged four months to twelve years old. They are all formal portraits, showing the children with a variety of props, poses and backdrops. Some depict children by themselves, while others are pictured with their siblings.
There are forty portraits total. For most images only the last name of the child is known.

2.7 m of textual records and graphic material

Scope and Content
This accession consists of textual and graphic records relating to the Downtown Jewish Community School. The records include family education grants, applications and reports, class lists, board meeting minutes and correspondence, financial records and audited statements, photographs, children's artwork, news clippings, program material, and a scrapbook.
Custodial History
The records were kept in the offices of Joan Schoenfeld, principal of the Downtown Jewish Community School until their transfer to the OJA on 2006-08-24.
Administrative History
The Downtown Jewish Community School is an independent afternoon and Sunday school of approximately 200 students affiliated with the Board of Jewish Education UJA Federation of Toronto. It caters to children in the public school system. Although the objectives of the DJCS are primarily educational, encouragement of a sense of community among Jews in downtown Toronto has always been, and continues to be, a prime concern.
The DJCS opened in the Bloor "Y" on Sunday, September 7, 1979 with a full student enrollment of forty-seven children in three grade levels. The full school-community consisted of seventy-seven families -- members, whose children attended the school, and associate members, most of whose children were on the waiting list. Programs included classes in Jewish heritage, culture, values and Hebrew language, community holiday celebrations as well as adult and family education.
Use Conditions
Partially closed. Researchers must receive permission from the OJA Director prior to accessing some of the records.
