Admin History/Bio
Based on the Feb. 2, 1939 report to the Annual Meeting regarding the new proposed permanent structure for the United Jewish Welfare Fund, a Board of Directors was created as the most senior part of the new organization with “final authority for managing the affairs of the Welfare Fund” [Fonds 67, Series 3, File 1, attached report]. Officers of this Board consisted of; a President, one or more (and up to 5) Vice-Presidents, an Honorary Secretary, and an Honorary Treasurer. These 8 were augmented by; 4 representatives of the permanent campaign organization, 17 representatives of the 4 functional divisions of recipient agencies (Personal Service and Relief, Jewish Education, Civic-Protection, and Non-local Agencies), and a further 16 representatives of the community at large.
The President was to be the “leading figure in the functioning of the Welfare Fund”, with responsibility for dealing with pressing issues between meetings of the Executive Committee and for arranging meetings of the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors. Vice-Presidents (not more than 5) were to assist the President with decision-making and one was to substitute as Chair at meetings when the President could not attend.
The Board of Directors had the authority to establish all standing and/or special committees. In 1939, 3 standing committees were established; the Executive Committee, The Budget and Admissions Committee, and the Committee on Interpretation (community education and publicity). The inclusion of up to three Board members within each standing committee was mandatory, with the Chair of the Executive Committee always being an ex-officio member of the Board.
Board of Directors meetings were originally scheduled to occur every six weeks, or if called by the President. Executive Committee meetings were scheduled every two weeks. Division Committees were to meet once a month, but not in July and August. In reality, meeting frequency for the Board and its standing committees varied greatly over the years as wars and social and economic changes created various crises requiring more rapid responses.
Scope and Content
Series consists of one sub-series 3-1, of meeting minutes of the Board of Directors of the UJWF. Records are arranged chronologically.
Notes
Previously described and cited as RG1-8.
Access restriction note: Records documenting the meeting minutes and activities of this Board are CLOSED until they are more than ten years old.

Admin History/Bio
The Jewish Community Centre Association (JCCA) was formed in the fall of 1936 through the coordination of the Jewish Girls’ and Boys’ Clubs to provide cultural, social, educational and athletic programming for members of the Jewish community. Located at 44 St. George Street, the JCCA offered a variety of classes; including, cooking, sewing, journalism, language, dance and art classes. It also ran a home camp and summer nursery school and organized celebrations for Jewish festivals and holidays.
However, many similar organizations existed in Toronto at the time and the JCCA was absorbed into the larger and growing Young Men's and Young Women's Hebrew Association around 1941. The YM-YWHA initially continued to operate many of the JCCA's programs at 44 St. George Street. Today, the YM-YWHA has evolved into the Bathurst Jewish Community Centre (BJCC) and the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre (MNJCC).
Scope and Content
File consists of correspondence and client lists documenting the relationship between the JCWA and the Jewish Community Centre Association of Toronto (JCCA).
Access Restriction
Closed. Researchers must receive permission from the OJA Director and the head of Jewish Family and Child prior to accessing the records.

Admin History/Bio
The Schwartz-Reisman Jewish Community Centre, the Prosserman Jewish Community Centre (formerly the Bathurst Jewish Community Centre or BJCC) and the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre (MNJCC) in Toronto are the current incarnations of what began, in 1919, as the Hebrew Association of Young Men's and Young Women's Clubs, later known as the Young Men's and Young Women's Hebrew Association of Toronto (Y.M.-Y.W.H.A.). The Y.M.-Y.W.H.A., in turn, began as a merger between several other small athletic clubs operating in the city. The original mandate was strictly athletic, but soon broadened to include other areas of interest, in order to provide a sense of Jewish identity and camaraderie through physical, educational, cultural and community based programming. During the 1920s, the 'Y' became known simply as the Young Men’s Hebrew Association (Y.M.H.A.) – the name under which it was incorporated in 1930.
For close to two decades, the ‘Y’ had rented rooms in the Brunswick Avenue and College Street area, including the basement facilities of the Brunswick Avenue Talmud Torah. By the mid-1930s, these facilities were overcrowded and unable to support the growing membership, particularly when the young women’s programming was reintroduced in 1936.
As a result, in 1937, the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. constructed its own athletic building at 15 Brunswick Avenue, next door to the Talmud Torah, to ease the overcrowding. However, the ‘Y’ still had to make use of five scattered buildings to meet its needs, including the Central Y.M.C.A. gym for its basketball teams. The early ‘Y’ was staffed by volunteers who were granted free memberships in exchange for their time and expertise.
On 3 February 1953, a new Jewish Community Centre was dedicated at the corner of Bloor Street and Spadina Avenue. By the end of the 1950s, the ‘Y’ was providing services for all ages, ranging from a nursery school to their Good Age Club for seniors.
As the Jewish community moved northward, so too did the ‘Y’, with the dedication of a new northern branch on 1 May 1961. This new branch, located at Bathurst Street and Sheppard Avenue, was created in order to address the athletic, educational, cultural and community needs of the expanding Jewish community in the north end of the city. Fourteen years later, an improved cultural and physical education wing was added as part of the completion campaign. This included the addition of the Leah Posluns Theatre and the Murray Koffler Centre of the Arts. In 1978, the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. changed its name to the Jewish Community Centre of Toronto, in order to better reflect its broader role in the community. A new Northeast Valley branch was also established in Thornhill in the early 1980s and later closed in the late 1990s.
In 1994, the Jewish Federation of Greater Toronto took over the operation of the northern branch, due to financial difficulties. At this point, all three branches became independent of one another and were no longer constituted as the Jewish Community Centre of Toronto. They each had independent boards of directors, while still receiving some of their operating funds from the Jewish Federation of Greater Toronto.
Scope and Content
This fonds consists of the records created and accumulated by the Jewish Community Centre of Toronto -- which included the Bloor branch and the northern Bathurst Jewish Community Centre -- and its predecessor, the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. The records include textual records maintained by the office of the executive director, financial reports, architectural plans, Y-Times newsletters, program material, photographs and oral histories.
The records have been arranged into the following series: Executive director, Jewish Community Centre Archives Committee, Publication Committee, Communications Department, Sports Celebrity Dinner, and Combined Building Campaign Committee.
Notes
Includes 2539 photographs, 42 drawings, 13 sound recordings, 4 artifacts and 2 posters.

Admin History/Bio
The Jewish Community Centre Association (JCCA) was formed in the fall of 1936 through the coordination of the Jewish Girls’ and Boys’ Clubs to provide cultural, social, educational and athletic programming for members of the Jewish community. Located at 44 St. George Street, the JCCA offered a variety of classes; including, cooking, sewing, journalism, language, dance and art classes. It also ran a home camp and summer nursery school and organized celebrations for Jewish festivals and holidays.
However, many similar organizations existed in Toronto at the time and the JCCA was absorbed into the larger and growing Young Men's and Young Women's Hebrew Association around 1941. The YM-YWHA initially continued to operate many of the JCCA's programs at 44 St. George Street. Today, the YM-YWHA has evolved into the Bathurst Jewish Community Centre (BJCC) and the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre (MNJCC).
