Admin History/Bio
In his lifetime, Maurice Solway composed over one hundred compositions, predominantly for violin and piano. Many of these were published by E.C. Kerby Ltd. and Berandol Music Ltd., both music publishers based in Toronto. Of these compositions, "Reminiscence and Warum," original music from the movie "The violin," remains in print.
Scope and Content
These are typically short instrumental compositions by Maurice Solway for solo violin, duet violin, violin and flute, and violin with piano accompaniment. One piece is written for cello. Most of these scores are dated in the 1970s and 1980s, but a number of them earlier and others are undated. Many of the pieces bear a dedication, frequently to pupils, friends, or family members with several of these marking important anniversaries and occasions. The longest composition is ten pages and many of the pieces are a single page in length or shorter. The file also includes four short compositions by Maurice's father, Jakob, including three dated from the 1920s, and another lyrical song by Maurice's brother, Sam Solway, co-written with Jack Lewis in 1935. Two copies of csardas, or gypsy songs, composed in 1986, by Maurice Solway are included with the material from acc. # 1988-10-9.
Arrangement
The copies and originals are mixed. They have been arranged in chronological order, where dates are available. Where more than one date is written on a score, the arrangement is by the earliest date. The undated scores are kept at the back of the folder.

Physical Description
10 cm of textual records and other material
Date

Scope and Content
Accession consists of records documenting the 100th anniversary celebration of Congregation Knesseth Israel. The records were compiled in an indexed binder by Edwin Goldstein, president of the synagogue. Included are newsclippings, press releases and advertisements; invitations and programs; a commemorative calendar; a volunteer t-shirt, a kippa and a gift bag; correspondence with the Ontario Trillium Foundation; information on a guided architectural walking tour of the area; an Israel Today DVD featuring the synagogue; the book "One Hundred Years at the Junction Shul" written by Neil Ross and Lorne Miller; and a DVD compilation featuring video and photographic highlights from the various anniversary events.
Administrative History
Congregation Knesseth Israel was established in 1911 at 56 Maria Street in the West end of Toronto. Early 20th century membership in the synagogue consisted mainly of new jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe, many of whom lived and worked in the Junction as artisans, peddlers, shop owners and scrap and metal collectors. Known as the Junction Shul, Knesseth Israel Synagogue was built with the labour and funds provided by the founding members and their families.
Orthodox services first began in 1913 and since the 1930s the synagogue has functioned without a rabbi, with services being led by a cantor or the congregants themselves. Some family names associated with this early period include: Alexandroff, Goldstein, Nickolaevsky, Kronis, Greenblatt, Usprich, Tanenbaum, and Naftalin.
Knesseth Israel is the oldest Toronto synagogue still in use as a synagogue today and is now cared for by the descendents of these founding families. Although members of the synagogue are now few (as the Jewish population of the Junction has waned greatly since the 1960s), the synagogue still performs High Holiday services for some 75-80 full members and 300 associate members.

Administrative History
In 1899, London established its first permanent synagogue at the corner of Richmond and Simcoe Streets. The B'nai Israel Congregation operated from this location until 1917. With the rapid influx of Jewish residents at the turn of century, the congregation eventually relocated to the site of a former church located at the corner of Wellington and Grey. B'nai Israel operated from this new home until 1960. On September 11, 1960, B'nai Israel Congregation consecrated its new purpose built synagogue at the then northern border of the city. Praised for its ultramodern design, the synagogue complex designed by architect Philip Carter Johnson, housed a school, social hall and youth centre.
