Admin History/Bio
The Herzl Zion Club of Toronto was organized in 1910 by John Shayne, as a Jewish boys fraternal club. Members of the club engaged in athletic activates, minstrel shows, debates and lecture series and other cultural activities such as dances and theatrical productions. They were famous for their staged follies at the Loew's Winter Garden Theatre on Yonge Street.
The Club originally met on Sundays at the Zionist Institute, until they purchased their own clubhouse at 210 Beverley Street after the First World War. By the end of the 1920s, as many of the boys entered the professions and got married, the club experienced a waning in membership and was eventually forced to disband.
In May 1943, a reunion was organized by former members Jack Samuel and Nat Gollom. The following year the club re-formed, but this time with a greater emphasis placed on fundraising, specifically for the Combined Palestine Appeal (later the United Jewish Appeal) and the Hebrew University. The Club also began publishing an internal newsletter entitled the Herzl Zion Digest. They later affiliated with the Zionist Organization of Canada, Central Region, and often sent delegates to ZOC conferences.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of negatives documenting the events and activities of the Herzl Zion Club of Toronto. The images depict members at installation banquets and officers' meetings, bowling league events, and various campaign fundraisers. The negatives have been arranged chronologically by event and are described at the file or item level.

Admin History/Bio
Around 1934, the Jewish Family Welfare Bureau (JFWB) began a Homemaking Club, which offered mothers a series of lectures in cooking, nutrition, and household budgeting. The club was one of many being formed throughout Toronto through the St. George's School for Child Study at the University of Toronto.
In 1936, the program of the Homemaking Club expanded to offer lectures on chid-care, instruction in sewing and knitting and to provide mothers with a recreational outlet. By 1941 three different types of groups were meeting bi-monthly: parent education groups on the pre-school child, parent education groups on the adolescent child, and recreation groups. The purpose of these groups was to "promote and develop harmonious and good relations in family life."
The first Director of the Homemaking Centre was Dr. Cecil Markowitz and the courses were instructed by leaders trained at the St. George's School for Child Study. The meetings originally took place at the Council House at 44 St. George Street, but a Homemaking Centre was later established for the club at 53 Baldwin Street. Around 1942, JFWB cancelled the Parent Education groups due to difficulty securing trained leaders and a lack of interest among its clientele.
Scope and Content
Series consists of textual records documenting the JFWB's Homemaking Clubs. Included are meeting notices, agendas, and minutes, reports, correspondence, seasonal schedules, attendance sheets, publicity articles and other materials used during group meetings, such as songs and theatrical scripts. Committees and Clubs documented include: the Homemaking Centre Committee, the Parent Education Committee, the Parent Education Group, the Recreation Club, and the Child Study Group.

Custodial History
The records were donated to the OJA by Hartley Robins. Hartley Robins has been a member of the Island Yacht Club since 1956 and served as Commodore from 1973 to 1976, Hartley's wife Brooky Robins, served as archivist for the Island Yacht Club.
Administrative History
The Island Yacht Club (IYC) was founded in 1951 by a small group of Jewish sailing enthusiasts at a time when Jewish applicants were denied membership to Toronto's yacht clubs. The founding members included Cecil Yolles, Dr. Bernard “Bunny” Willinsky, Ben Dunkelman, John Bussin, Eon Gilmore, Mel and Irving Gould, Mark Speyer, Norm Kerzner, Joe Kitz, Boris Adelberg, and Bill Ackerman. The group obtained a lease from the City of Toronto for a parcel of undeveloped land on Mugg's Island in Blockhouse Bay. They then obtained a provincial charter incorporating the Island Yacht Club as a non-profit corporation. A board of directors was elected, with Bunny Willinsky as its first Commodore.
In 1952, the original group had grown to approximately 35 members. Work parties were formed from among the members to clear the land and a prefabricated building was purchased by the club which served as the early clubhouse. A generator was donated by member Al Jacobs for electricity and two floating docks were built. As the club membership grew, more land was acquired; the original clubhouse was expanded; grounds were landscaped; a swimming pool, lockers, dining room, lounge, docks, and marine railway were installed; and a tender was purchased. By 1956, the membership had grown to 350 with a fleet of eighty sail and power boats and the IYC was accepted into the Lake Yacht Racing Association (LYRA), the oldest association of its kind in North America.
In 1957, the IYC hosted its first open sailing regatta for the seven Toronto area yacht clubs and has since hosted many other regattas including four LYRA events. In order to accommodate its more junior members, a Junior Sailing Club was founded by Commodore John Zeldin in 1958, which has played a large role in the development of the IYC. In 1964, an adult sailing program was instituted to teach members and non-members racing tactics and rules. Racing competitions have been an important part of the IYC’s history. IYC sailors have been members of Canada’s Olympic sailing team and have competed in the Pan-American Games, Maccabiah Games, CORK regattas and other competitions in Canada and the United States.
Over the years, the purpose of the IYC has changed from a racing club that has developed champion sailors, to a more recreational club, oriented to family and leisurely activities. The IYC has also played a large social role in the lives of its membership, hosting galas, auctions, fashion shows, theme nights, bowling events, anniversary parties, the Commodore's Ball, and other activities during both the sailing season and off-season months.
The IYC has suffered from two fires in its fifty-five year history. The first fire occurred in 1986 in the IYC’s boat yard, destroying several boats. The second fire occurred in 2004 and destroyed the IYC’s clubhouse and its contents. A new clubhouse was officially opened on June 18th, 2006 and the IYC continues to serve its members in boating, socializing, dining, and marine services.
