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.
Access Restriction
Partially closed. Researchers must receive permission from the OJA Director and the head of Jewish Family and Child prior to accessing some of the records.

The photographs document club activities and events from 2001 through to 2005. Included are images of the IYC Juniors, sailpasts, BBQs, competitions, and the clubhouse fire and reconstruction.
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.

They first met under the auspices of the YMHA but later had their own club room over a delicatessen at the corner of College and Brunswick. The club was social in nature, but they also bought jackets and uniforms, participated in sports activities, and planned events such as dances. The members have continued to periodically reunite over the years.
The members of the club include: Stan Bargman, Bernie Bedder, Jack Besser, Phil Bregman, Harold Bronstine, Willie Budman, Stan Cole, Norm Ferguson, Mike Flicht, Joe Flicht, Jerry Goldberg, Frank Gentile, Seymour Greenbaum, Irwin Gould, Sam Helfenbaum, Morty Horowitz, Lou Koblinsky, Irving Mandell, Arnie Marmer, Myer Price, Norm Rosenberg, Howie Saltzman, Jerry Shapero, Owen Shime, Pinky Shulman, Shelly Sokoloff, Alby Sokolsky, Paul Stoneman, Gary Wasserman, Simon Weinberg, and Jack Zweigenbaum.

The Primrose Club was founded in Toronto in 1907 as the Cosmopolitan Club, an elite Jewish men's social club. In 1959, the club's building at 41 Willcocks Street was expropriated by the University of Toronto (and currently houses the university's Faculty Club), and the club subsequently moved to a new building at Russell Road & St. Clair, designed by Kaplan & Sprachman. It has since been demolished and a condominium has been put up in its place by Ken Rotenberg, a Toronto developer.

Admin History/Bio
The Zionist Book Club was created in 1962 by the Central Region Education and Programme Department, which was responsible for the development of educational and public awareness programmes to promote Israeli and Jewish culture in Canada. The club was created to encourage the purchase and reading of Israeli literature and books with Jewish themes.
The Education and Programme Department also sponsored film festivals, art exhibitions, and Israeli, Jewish, and Zionist "Book Months," but the Zionist Book Club was the most popular of its programmes. Subscribers to the book club could purchase books at discounted prices from selected publisher lists of Israeli literature and books with Jewish themes. The book club also supported public lectures and lecture series and commissioned reviews of book club selections.
Scope and Content
The series consists of correspondence and other records relating to the selection, purchase and promotion of Zionist Book Club offerings, correspondence with book club subscribers, and information on lectures and other public events sponsored by the Club.

The Health Club Committee, also known as the Health Club Services Committee, or the Health Services Committee, was one of the earliest standing committees created by the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. Their original mandate was to oversee the operation of the men's health club. In 1953, a separate women's health club was created alongside the men's and a Women's Health Services Committee was struck to oversee its operations. A new Men's Health Services Committee was created to reflect this new arrangement, while the old Health Club Committee continued to function, but in a new role as a joint committee.
Scope and Content
This file contains textual records relating to the functioning of the Health Club Committee. The records include meeting minutes and agendas, general committee and member correspondence, member lists, reports and financial records.
Notes
There is some overlap in the records kept in the files for the Health Club Committee, the Men's Health Services Committee and the Women's Health Services Committee.
