Administrative History
Louis (Elazar / Loozer) Rotenberg (b. 17 Feb. 1863-d. 31 Dec. 1936) immigrated to Toronto in 1893. He was possibly the first Jew to immigrate to Toronto from Ivansk, Poland. He had married Rivka (nee Cukier) (b. 9 Jan. 1864-d. 4 Jun. 1956) in 1883. She followed him to Toronto with their four children in 1895. They had an additional five children in Toronto. Their children were: Harry (b. 31 Oct. 1884-d. 26 May 1937), Max (Mordechai) (b. 25 Dec. 1886-d. 8 May 1958), Louis (Leibish) (b. 14 Dec. 1885-d. 24 Dec. 1961), Meta (b. 12 July 1892-d. 26 July 1954), Meyer (b. 9 Mar. 1894-d. 25 Jun. 1958), Charlie (b. 5 Aug. 1897-d. 21 Sept. 1949), Naftali Hertz (b. Jun. 1899-d. Feb. 1971), Zechariah (b. 1902-d. at age 4 in 1906), and Hilda (b. 16 Jun. 1904-d. 25 Mar. 1999). Louis opened a banking, steamship and insurance office in Toronto with three of his sons (Louis Jr., Harry and Max) in 1916. The business eventually became known as Rotenberg's Ltd. Louis passed away in 1936.
Hertzel Rotenberg was born in Toronto to Max and Sara (nee Lavine) Rotenberg on July 27, 1923. He had two brothers: Marcus (b. 30 May 1925) and Cyril (b. 9 Mar. 1920). Hertzel studied medicine at the University of Toronto and served in the Canadian army's medical corps during the Second World War. After the war, he practiced medicine in the United States and joined the US army. He eventually worked as an ear, nose and throat doctor in Buffalo. In the 1970s he married Cecylia. He passed away in Florida in 2011.
