Accession consists of B. Borochov Branch 124 of Farband Labor Zionist Order's programs. Programs are for annual theatrical events, annual concerts , the 50th Golden Jubilee Celebrations, and the 60th Festive Jubilee Celebrations
Administrative History
In 1917 a group of young people founded a club and decided to join the Toronto Farband. They were officially inaugurated as Farband Branch No. 124 on July 14, 1918 and took the name of the late labour zionist Ber Borochov.
The Branch paid the bills for members who joined the Jewish Legion and also elected a committee to the Jewish Congress. They continued to raise funds for several other Jewish organizations and, as well, they purchased a house to accomodate the cultural programs they hosted. They hosted annual theatre events, concerts, lecture series and opened a library within their house where they could also conduct readings.

Scope Note
Established in 1913 by Henry Dworkin and Sam Easser, the Labor Lyceum Association sought to advance the interests of the city's Jewish trade union movement. Through the sale of $5.00 stock certificates, the community purchased two houses at 344 and 346 Spadina in 1924, adding a new front and meeting rooms in 1929.
History
The Labor Lyceum operated as the headquarters for the non-Communist unions of the primarily Jewish garment district. The seasonal nature of the textile industry meant that workers had time to socialize and strategize during slow work periods. The Labour Lyceum also served as an important cultural centre for various Jewish societies and fraternal organizations. It hosted a range of activities from lectures and rallies to dances, plays, and concerts. The provincial Cooperative Commonwealth Federation held conventions here in the 1940s. The importance of the Labor Lyceum lessened as the Jewish community began to move out of the Spadina Avenue area, however it remained significant to the continued labour activism taken up by newer immigrant groups. In 1971, the building was sold and the Labor Lyceum moved to Cecil Street.
