Admin History/Bio
The theme of the 1991 Walk for Israel, held on Sunday, June 2, was "Operation Exodus: The Journey Home." This corresponded to UJA Federation's campaign that year. The goal of the Walk was to raise enough money for 500 Russian Jews (two planeloads) to make Aliyah to Israel. Each of the eight checkpoints portrayed a different theme or "step" to freedom: "invitation to freedom," "permission to freedom," "flight to freedom," etc. Great effort was made to expand recruitment from the traditional children who participated, to reach parents and other adults from UJA's divisions. The chairs of the Walk were David William Brown and David Engel, and the UJA staff coordinator was Avrum Rosensweig. Sponsors included Shopper's Drug Mart, Spring Valley spring water, Beatrice Foods, and Meadowvale Security. There were 8500 participants this year, but only 2700 of these collected any sponsors, a fact that highlights a longstanding problem facing the Walk Committee. After the event, expenditures were estimated at $23,000 and revenue (from the Festival) at $14,000. The difference was made up by UJA.
The Festival in 1991 was called "The Journey Home: Sharing Our Ethnicity" and it focussed on the multi-culturalism in the Toronto Jewish community. This year, the Festival was re-visioned as a family picnic type of event rather than the expansive carnival atmosphere of previous years. The staff coordinator of the Festival was Mark Freedman, and the lay chairs were Judy Engel and Judy Shulman. The Festival included arts and crafts, puppets, storytellers, games, pony rides and a petting zoo. There was also a varied line-up of performers and musicians, and an "Israeli cafe" food experience.
Scope and Content
Sub-sub-series contains textual records, photographs, and a t-shirt, hat, and pair of shoelaces from the 1991 Walk for Israel. The files are arranged by function, in this order: Walk oversight (the Cabinet Committee and chairs), recruitment of participants and volunteers, logistics, publicity and design, sponsorship and prizes, finances, the Walk event itself, the Festival and post-event evaluation.
Access Restriction
Records in off-site storage; advance notice required to view.

Biography
Rabbi Nachman Shemen was a talmudic scholar, journalist, scholar, teacher, “mediator par excellence,” and the author of more than twenty books. His contribution to Jewish scholarship included interpretations on biblical, talmudic, rabbinic, and literary studies. The two volumes, published in Tel Aviv in Yiddish, discuss issues that date back to the creation and the Book of Genesis up to more recent current day controversial issues as conversion and assimilation.
The rabbinic scholar was born in Chodel, Poland, a small town near Lublin, just before the outbreak of the First World War. Shemen's great-grandfather was a disciple of the founder of Hasidism in Poland, the “Seer of Lublin.” Both his parents were descendants of chassidism and scholars. When he was just over seventeen years old, he received rabbinic ordination, and In 1930, moved to Canada with his family.
A founder of COR the Kashruth supervisory body, Shemen made COR one of the largest and most respected kosher organizations in North America. For over 40 years, Shemen served as director of the Kashruth Council and Rabbinical Vaad Hakashruth of the Canadian Jewish Congress and the Toronto Jewish Congress. He was one of the founders of Congregation Torah V’Avoda and was associated with the Eitz Chaim Schools where he taught for over 25 years. He was a longtime contributor to Yiddish newspapers and wrote many articles, sometimes using the pseudonym “A Reporter,” on Jewish issues and about the early Jewish community of Toronto. He died in 1993.

Biography
Sam Lipshitz (journalist, editor, typesetter, and political activist) was born in Radom, Poland on 14 February 1910. He was sent by his parents to live with an aunt in Montreal after graduating from high school. He joined the Jewish Cultural Club of Montreal, where several young members promoted Communism, based on the belief that the growth of Yiddish literature, schools, and other social institutions in Russia offered new equality for Jews. Sam was drawn to these views by Manya Cantor, who later became his wife.
Sam joined the Young Communist League in 1928 and later worked full-time with the Communist Party of Canada (renamed the Labor-Progressive Party in 1941 after the party was banned the previous year by the federal government), becoming editor of its newspaper, Der kamf, by 1932. He later edited Vochenblatt ("Canadian Jewish Weekly"). He was appointed secretary of the party's Anti-Fascist Committee in 1933, became head of the Jewish National Committee soon after, and sat on the party's central committee from 1943 to 1946. His prominent role in the illegal party led to a warrant issued for his arrest and life in hiding until the Communists supported the war after Germany's invasion of Russia in June 1941, and Sam spent several days in the Don Jail with other party leaders in 1942.
Sam joined the executive of the Canadian Jewish Congress in 1943, representing the United Jewish People's Order along with Joseph Baruch Salsberg. His most important work for the congress occurred in 1945, when he was sent to Poland with Hanane Meier Caiserman to report on the condition of the Jews who had been liberated from Nazi concentration camps just months earlier and the fate of those who had not survived the experience. Lipshitz wrote and lectured extensively on this experience.
Following the exposure of Soviet brutality and antisemitism under Joseph Stalin by Nikita Khrushchev in 1956, a bitter rift over the Canadian Communist party's response to these admissions led to the resignation of hundreds of Jews including the Lipshitzs and Salsberg in 1957. Resignation from the party meant an end to employment for the Lipshitzs (Manya as a Jewish teacher, Sam as a political organizer), but Sam found work as a linotype operator. He founded Trade Typesetting in 1964 and did work for many Jewish organizations in Toronto until his retirement in 1975. The dispute carried over to the work of UJPO, which was led by members of the Communist party. Three years of bitter and occasionally violent argument between factions led to approximately thirty percent of the membership, led by Sam Lipshitz and Morris Biderman, leaving the UJPO in 1960. Two hundred of the membership, including Sam, founded the New Jewish Fraternal Association the same year. After taking in an evening course in journalism at the University of Toronto in 1959, Sam assumed the role of editor for the association's magazine, Fraternally Yours, from March 1960 until his death in 2000. Sam also edited Voice of Radom, the periodical of the United Radomer Relief for the United States and Canada and was a member of the Yiddish committee of the United Jewish Appeal Federation of Greater Toronto for twenty-five years, served on the Yiddish Committee of the Canadian Jewish Congress, and wrote more than 170 bi-weekly columns in Yiddish for the Canadian Jewish News until he resigned from this post in September 1999. He suffered a massive stroke only two days after completing the Rosh Hashana issue of Fraternally Yours and died in Toronto two weeks later on 14 September 2000.

Admin History/Bio
In 1994, the Walk was renamed the Community March for Israel to give it a strong feeling of community spirit, solidarity and unity. The route was significantly shortened to 5 kilometres and it started at a precise time so that all participants walked together; as the posters read, "We walk as one!" The event was held on Sunday, May 29th. It was chaired by Judy Engel and Alan Winer with UJA staff coordinator Vicki Weiss overseeing the planning and the work of committees. Close to 7,000 participants raised about $100,000 to support teenage olim (immigrants) in Israel. Related fundraisers include the second annual Aerobathon, dances held by B.B.Y.O and Reena-Kadima-C.H.A.T, and a pre-March run of 10 kilometres.

The 5 kilometre route again went from the Promenade Mall at Bathurst and Clark to the Bathurst JCC. Mayors of both Metulla and Eilat (Yossi Goldberg and Gabi Kadosh) were present and led the March. At the Festival, the mainstage entertainment was headlined by The Stars Band and Liberty Silver.

Admin History/Bio
The 1996 Community March for Israel took place on Sunday, May 26th. Its theme was "Journey to Jerusalem" and the Festival was called the Jerusalem 3000 Festival in honour of the city's birthday. The goal was to raise awareness and support for UJA's projects in Jerusalem and in the end more than 7000 people came out to support it. The 1996 March chairs were Maura Cooperberg and Jeff Cohen, and the staff coordinator was Karen Worb.
The Festival this year was a joint effort between UJA and the Canadian Zionist Federation; its chairs were Marcy Kroach and Gilda Niman from UJA, and Tillie Margolis and Ehud Savion from CZF. Due to the inclement weather the previous year, the planners opted to hold the Festival indoors, at the North York Centennial Arena at 580 Finch Avenue West. Once again, the March route began at the Promenade Shopping Centre and led south on Bathurst to the arena.
Scope and Content
