Scope and Content
The accession consists of records related to the work of David Marks.

Administrative History
David Marks was born in Toronto and was the youngest of three brothers. He moved to Hamilton after marrying his wife Helen during the 1950s and opened up a shoe store. They had two children together, Irving and Anita. After eight years, they returned to Toronto. In 1962, he accepted a position as manager of shelter workshops for Jewish Vocational Services (JVS). He then started working for UJA and in 1968 became its campaign director. He served in that capacity for fourteen years.

He travelled to Israel more than thirty times and organized the visits of Israeli leaders to Toronto including David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meier, Menachem Begin, Moshe Dayan, and others.
In 1982, he left his position as campaign director and became the director of development at Mount Sinai Hospital. He then opened up a consulting business with three other community professionals, which provided help to other organizations with their fundraising efforts.
In 2004, David passed away after battling cancer. He left behind his wife, two children and four grandchildren.

Administrative History
The Noss family traces its origins to Russia/Ukraine. The patriarch, Avraham Noss, died after contracting typhus after being badly beaten in a pogrom. His wife, Toiba, died of either cholera, typhus, or influenza (accounts vary). They left behind four children: Raisa, Meyer, Joseph, and Moshe. The extended family took care of the four orphans but did not have enough food to feed them, so the three youngest were put in a Jewish orphanage. The eldest, Raisa, was too old but came every day to visit her brothers. One day, she arrived only to be told, "The missionaries took them away." The entire orphanage was brought to Canada. A Mr. Hershman from Toronto was involved as was a congregation of Christadelphians from Hamilton including a Mr. Farrar who owned a good-quality clothing store.
Raisa remained in Russia, where she received an education from the Communist Party and became an engineer. Meyer kept in touch with his sister for as long as possible, but the two eventually lost touch.
The Drazin family took in Meyer, the eldest brother, although the family never adopted him. Despite this, he changed his name to Drazin. Joseph ("Joe") was adopted but was returned to Children's Aid, where he went from foster home to foster home. He eventually took back the Noss family name. As for Moshe, he was adopted by Moses Levy and Marietta Steinert. Moshe's new parents changed his name to Edgar Steinert Levy. Edgar Levy is thus the same individual as Moshe Noss. Marietta was well-known in the Hamilton community, and a chapter of the National Council of Jewish Women was named after her.
