Admin History/Bio
The executive director is responsible for the administration and management of the Board of Jewish Education, including its committees. During the 1950s, the executive director was one of five staff members, along with a school consultant, assistant director (i.e., administrative assistant to the executive director), secretary stenographer, and stenographer. In the 1960s and 1970s, as the Jewish education system in Toronto grew, additional positions were created to assist the executive director, including an associate director, director of school finances, and later, the director of educational technology.
The responsibilities of the executive director have included the supervision of administrative and professional staff, assembling board and committee agendas, planning new projects, recruiting and hiring of new personnel, monitoring the availability of scholarships and bursaries for students pursuing higher Jewish education, consulting with teachers and principals of subsidized schools on such matters as curriculum and professional development, acting as the BJE representative in dealings with government agencies and other organizations, and public relations and education activities like conferences and media interviews. The executive director is an ex officio member of many BJE committees and other organizations, such as the Principals Council.
The executive director liaises with the schools on inter-school activities such as the Bible Contest and Jewish Book Month Contest, works with the Midrasha Board of Governors in the preparation and supervision of its curriculum and budget, consults with staff at the Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto (CHAT), and assists in the administration of the Israel study programs. The executive director has also carried the title of director of CHAT, stemming from the initial founding of the school by the UJWF. This position has involved serving on the board of directors of CHAT, dealing with staff needs, helping determine policies and plans for the school, and reviewing the school's budget and operations. The executive director has been the dean of the Midrasha L'Morim since its establishment in 1953.
Dr. Joseph Diamond was the first executive director of the BJE, serving in this position for 18 years. In 1969, Rabbi Irwin E. Witty became executive director and served in this position for 28 years. In 1997 and 1998, Rabbi Dr. Jeremiah Unterman held the position. In 1999, Dr. Seymour Epstein became executive director of the BJE and, as of 2006, also holds the position of Vice-President for Jewish Education, UJA Federation of Greater Toronto.
Scope and Content
This series documents the executive directors' work with the UJWF Study Committee on Jewish Education in the early 1970s, and with agencies of the municipal, provincial and federal governments to secure funding for Jewish schools. The series also documents the executive director's public relations work on behalf of the BJE, through public speaking engagements and radio programs and the recruitment and hiring of teachers and principals for the various schools. The series contains personal correspondence of Dr. Diamond and Rabbi Witty, which they kept in the BJE's filing system and contain some references to their work as executive director.
The series is organized into four sub-series: Personal correspondence and writings, Government aid to schools, United Jewish Welfare Fund Study Committee on Jewish Education, and Teacher files.

Please note that much of the material in other series of the fonds -- especially the Subject files (series 4), School files (series 5) and Chronological correspondence (series 6) -- include records created or accumulated by the executive director in his work on BJE projects and programs.

Admin History/Bio
The Executive Committee of the FJPT was the original management team responsible for the ongoing operations of the organization. It consisted of the officers of the FJPT: the honorary president, the president (who acted as committee chair), all four vice-presidents, the treasurer, the honorary secretary, and the executive director. Regular meetings were held monthly, but occasional special meetings were sometimes called to deal with emergencies or special events. All of its policy and procedures recommendations were passed to the Board of Trustees for final approval. Edmund Scheuer was its first chair and remained on the committee as honorary president throughout the 1920s.
Although this committee was established in 1918, and existed until at least 1934, no meeting minutes remain from the years between 1924 and 1937.
Scope and Content
Series consists of meeting minutes of the Executive Committee of the FJPT.

Admin History/Bio
The position of executive director was created in the 1936–37 period during which the United Jewish Welfare Fund replaced the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies as Toronto's central Jewish community fundraising organization. The executive director always sat on the Executive Committee, sometimes as secretary, other times as chair. Most significantly, this person was the senior manager responsible for the day-to-day administration of the activities and responsibilities of the United Jewish Welfare Fund.
The executive director was, at certain times, also known as the executive vice president. In 2001, new titles were adopted for the lay and professional leaders. The executive director was renamed president, while the lay leader formerly titled president became known as the chairman of the board.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of the correspondence and memoranda records of the executive directors of the UJWF. Records in this series are divided into five sub-series: correspondence, memoranda, subject files, Jewish Community Centre of Toronto, and Bequest and Endowment Fund.
