Date
[ca. 1918]-[ca. 1960]
Scope and Content
The accession consists of 47 photographs documenting the Pascowitz and Grossman families.
Custodial History
The records were sent to the OJA by Debby Shocket at the JAHSENA archives in Edmonton. She received them from an individual who picked them up at a garage sale and didn't know which family they documented. Debby could see they were from Toronto and asked if we would like them. A number of the original images were given to the donor, since he didn't have many photographs of his family and they were similar to other images in this donation.
Administrative History
Gimpel (Yacob) and Rivka Pascowitz came to Canada from Poland in 1903 and 1905 respectively. He arrived first to set up residence and then sent for his wife and seven children a couple years later. Their last child, Morris, was born in Toronto in 1907. They lived at 138 Elizabeth Street in the Ward. Gimpel ran a delicatessen below their home and served as Gabbai of Beth Jacob Congregation on Henry Street. Their son Charles was born around 1900. He enlisted in the Royal Fusilliers, where he served as a sapper in Egypt during the First World War. His regiment was part of the Jewish Legion. When he returned he worked for Canadian National as a telegraph operator transmitting messages in Morse code.
The Grossman daughters, Anna (m. Pascowitz), Ruth (m. Godfrey) and Esther, arrived from Galicia in June 1921. The family sent the three eldest girls to Toronto after their grandfather had been murdered during a pogrom in the spring of 1921. At that time they were 21, 19 and 20 respectively. They stayed with their aunt, Annie (Grossman), and uncle Charles Goodman, who lived at 190 Seaton Street. Esther found a job as a fur finisher with J. Schwartz & Co. on Queen Street West. She later worked for Schipper, Freifeld furriers on Spadina Avenue. Anne located a job at the Biltmore Hat Factory. Ruth trained as a bookkeeper and found a job with Okun Brothers Ltd., millinery manufacturers on York Street. The rest of the family, including their parents Moses and Rose, arrived many years later. Their brother, David Grossman, immigrated to Toronto in February 1927 and found work as an upholsterer. Their parents, Moses and Rose, came three years later in March 1930 with the youngest child Rivkah (m. Agranove).They lived with Anne after their arrival and later moved in with their unmarried daughters and resided at 490 Euclid Avenue. Moses died in 1939 and Rose in 1972.
Charles Pascowitz and Anna Grossman married in Toronto on 8 February 1925. The couple had two children: Gilbert (b. 1925) and Herbert (b. 1927). The family moved to the east end of Toronto during the 1930s after Charlie lost his job with the CNR. They lived at 340 Kingston Road and opened a grocery store on the ground floor. Charlie was active in the Beach shul and served as a voluntary Hazzan, leading services. The kids attended Norway Public School. During his youth, Herb worked as a delivery boy for a grocery store. He later became a lifeguard as a later teen at B'nai Brith Camp and Camp Kitonim at Balfour Beach. Both boys served in the ROTC during the Second World War. Herbert attended the University of Toronto and completed his BSc in 1949 and his medical degree in 1953. He became a psychiatrist. Gilbert attended the University of Toronto as well and later interned in New York and became a pediatrician. He married Sandra Posen and the couple settled in Brantford. They had five children.
Herbert married his first wife Shirley Weinberg. She later changed her first name to Eve. The couple had four boys: Jonathan (b. 1954), Ron (b. 1957), Andrew (b. 1962) and Dan (b. 1964). They moved to Edmonton. After the couple divorced in 1975, Eve and the boys returned to Toronto. Herbert married Marilyn Berg in 1977.
Charlie Pascoe passed away in December 1970 and Anne several years later in March of 1977.
