Admin History/Bio
The Canadian Jewish Farm School was established in 1927 by Morris Saxe, president of the Federated Jewish Farmers of Ontario. It was a training school for Polish war orphans brought to Canada after the First World War. It was owned and operated by Morris Saxe on his Main Street South farm in Georgetown, Ontario. Saxe, along with Eli Greenblatt of Detroit, was responsible for bringing the orphans over from Mezritch, Poland. Greenblatt raised the funds for their transportation and Saxe arranged for their entry permits. The children were allowed to enter the country, provided that they lived and worked on the farm. Their duties involved milking cows, looking after chickens, and harvesting corn and other crops. The Saxe family also owned a creamery business, first in Acton, and then on Guelph Street in Georgetown.
The Jewish Farm School was the second attempt by Saxe to assist Jewish immigrants with agricultural training. The first was established a year prior in 1926, to help European immigrants gain knowledge of Canadian farm life. However, it succumbed to several problems, mostly related to Jewish interests in the community using the school as a way of gaining entry for immigrants who would otherwise not be eligible -- a plan which Saxe disapproved of, which created dissention within the community. When Greenblatt became involved the following year, the focus shifted to helping Jewish war orphans.
Edmund Scheuer and Ida Siegel were most likely at the school event because of their mutual interest and involvement in aiding Jewish immigrants and in Jewish education and training.
Scope and Content
Item is a photograph of Ida Siegel standing alongside Edmund Scheuer at the Jewish Farm School in Georgetown, Ontario. Edmund is wearing a tuxedo. The photograph may have been taken at the official opening of the school.
Notes
One photograph is a copy of the original.
The writing on the copy photograph indicates that the farm was located in Guelph, which is incorrect. The date is also written as 1923, which is also incorrect, since the first school was not established until 1926, with the likely date of the photograph being 1927.
The writing on the original photograph states that the photograph was taken in Acton, which is incorrect as the Jewish Farm School was located a short distance away in Georgetown.

Admin History/Bio
Ida Siegel (née Lewis) (1885-1982) was born 14 February 1885 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Originally from Lithuania, her parents Samuel and Hannah Ruth (née Ticktin) Lewis immigrated to the United States in the mid-1880s with their two sons, Abe and Charles. Ida was the only Lewis child to be born in the United States. In 1894, Ida and her family moved to Toronto. Ida was educated in both Pittsburgh and Toronto public schools and attended the University of Toronto.
On 14 February 1905, Ida married Isidore Hirsch Siegel at the Elm Street Synagogue. They had 6 children: Rohama, Leah Gittel (Labovitz), David Isar, Sarah (Sairlee), Avrom Fichel, Rivka Hadassah.
An extremely active communal leader, Ida helped found the Daughters of Zion, the first ladies Zionist society in Canada, in 1899. She was also responsible for founding the Herzl Girls Club in 1904 and Hadassah in 1916. She was instrumental in the organization of the first free Jewish dispensary in Toronto, located on Elizabeth Street in the Ward. This eventually developed into Mount Sinai Hospital. Ida was also very active in womens peace movements and the Toronto Board of Education (elected to Board, 1930-36) and the Toronto Bureau of Jewish Education (honorary secretary). In 1917, Ida helped to organize a fundraising body for the Jewish community known as the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies. This would later become the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto.

Admin History/Bio
The Scheuer family dates back to at least the eighteenth century in Germany to Moise Scheuer (1765-1846) and Esther Ackerman (1770-1847). Their son, Isaac Scheuer (1809-1889), married Hannchen (Johanna) Strauss (1815-1878) in 1843. Isaac and Johanna had six children: Gabriel (1844-1922), Camilla (1845-1916), Edmund (1847-1943), Emma (1853-1916), Ida (1855-1902), and Benno (Benjamin) (1857-1921).
While Gabriel, Emma, and Ida remained in Europe, Camilla, Edmund, and Benno immigrated to Canada in the late nineteenth century. Camilla came to Hamilton, Ontario after her marriage in 1866 to Herman Levy, co-founder of the Levy Brothers jewellery business. Edmund became a partner in the business when he first immigrated to Canada in 1871, and lived with Camilla and Herman. Camilla became the acknowledged leader of Jewish women in Hamilton. She served in organizations such as the Deborah Ladies' Aid Society, which eventually became an auxiliary of Temple Anshe Sholom, Canada's oldest Reform congregation, often referred to as the Hughson Street Temple. Edmund established the first Sabbath School in Ontario at Anshe Sholom in 1872 and served as president from 1873 to 1886.
After he was established in Hamilton, Edmund returned to Europe in 1873 to marry Oda Strauss (1854-1913) at Forbach, Lorraine, and then brought her back to Canada with him. The couple moved to Toronto in 1886, where he established a wholesale jewellery business on Yonge Street called Scheuer's under his company Edmund Scheuer Limited. Scheuer's was one of the oldest jewellery firms in Toronto and the oldest established wholesale diamond importer in Canada. Edmund's brother, Benno, also worked for the business as the accountant and then secretary-treasurer. Benno was married to Gatella Strauss (1859-1903) and they had three children: Eddie Jr. (1884-1967), Rhoda (1886-1963) and Isadore (1887-1969). Eddie Jr. and Isadore also worked for their uncle's business. Eddie Jr. started as a clerk and then became vice-president, while Isadore started out as a travelling salesman and jeweller. When their uncle retired in 1922, Eddie Jr. took over as president and his brother Isadore became vice-president of Scheuer's.
In addition to his jewellery business, Edmund Scheuer also taught and supervised the religious school at Holy Blossom Synagogue. He went on to serve in every official capacity at Holy Blossom, including vice-chairman and treasurer of the building committee for the Bond Street building. He also founded The Jewish Free School at 206 Beverley Street for Jewish girls and wrote his own textbook for the school, the first Jewish religious school book printed in Toronto. In 1892, he founded the first Jewish benevolent society in Toronto and was later president of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies. In 1927, the Beverley Street building, which housed Federation offices, was dedicated in his honour and named the "Scheuer House".
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of records documenting the Scheuer family in Germany, Hamilton, and Toronto. The fonds is made up primarily of photographs of Scheuer family members and friends. It also includes some textual records, including correspondence, marriage certificates, a Toronto Jewish Free School text book, and Holy Blossom Temple Bulletins. Also included are two brass "Scheuer's" window plates which were likely from Edmund Scheuer's jewellery business of the same name.
