Admin History/Bio
Folks Farein was a social welfare organization in the 1920s–1930s. It provided medical advice and consultations for those newly immigrated or those who were bedridden in hospitals. They essentially provided social comfort to those in medical need. Once institutions and organizations became more popular, such as Mount Sinai and JIAS, there was less need and less demand for an organization such as Folks Farein.

Admin History/Bio
The Folks Farein, also known as the Hebrew National Association, was established in 1914 by a group of Toronto Jewish immigrants as a society dedicated to anti-missionary and educational outreach. They were first located at 23 Cecil Street and moved to 37 Cecil Street around 1940.
In the early years of the Folks Farein's existence, Christian missions and a number of Jewish converts to Christianity sought to exploit the situation of poor Jews in the community through the distribution of direct relief, services of doctors and midwives and by street-corner preaching and proselytizing. To counteract the work of the Toronto missionaries the Folks Farein offered a number of services including welfare for working mothers, a reading room, English language classes and translation services for Yiddish immigrants.
When the threat from missionary activity was no longer an issue, the Folks Farein transformed itself into a philanthropic society. Under its revised mandate the society looked after the sick and needy in hospitals, sanatoriums, mental health institutions and in their homes, and arranged for free doctor services, translation services, medicine, dentures, eyeglasses, orthopedic shoes and medical appliances. The Folks Farein guaranteed the full or partial payment of medical bills by maintaining a fund in several hospitals for the benefit of Jewish patients in need of assistance. They provided assistance to seniors applying for old age pensions, to widows and mothers applying for benefits, assisted needy families and patients with kosher meals, provided cash relief during Passover, and fed and billeted the unemployed and homeless at their premises at 37 Cecil Street.
In the course of their work, the Folks Farein collaborated with many Jewish organizations and societies such as the Jewish Immigrant Aid Society, Jewish Family Welfare Bureau, Relief Unemployment Fund, Jewish Joint Application Bureau, Jewish Children's Bureau, the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of Toronto, Canadian Jewish Congress and the Toronto Hebrew Free Loan Association.
Its basis of revenue came from its large membership, house-to-house contributions from the public and from special events such as its annual ball, Moes Chittin campaign, Purim ball, and beauty contests.
In addition to its regular activities the Folks Farein assumed responsibility for providing aid to refugees of the Second World War: the first group arriving from Europe in 1945 and in 1948 to a group of Jewish tailors liberated from the DP camps of Germany. In 1947, the Folks Farein established Hachnoses Orchim, a temporary shelter to accommodate refugees and displaced persons. The shelter was located at 37 Cecil Street.
The Folks Farein's first officers were Mr. J. Graner (president), Mr. J. Meisniker (vice-president), Mr. Meyer Littner (superintendent), Chuna Mosoff and Mr. W. Welman (trustees), Miss Weiner and Mr. Cohen (board of education), Mr. A. Kaminsky (recording secretary) and Mr. Cohen (treasurer). Mr. Epstein referred to as "Grandfather" was one of the founders of the Folks Farein.
Other pioneers included Moshe Oelbaum, and M. Spiegel (1st vice-president), J. Hurwitz (1st vice-president and president), Abraham Sher, S.M. Shapiro Shlesinger, Joseph Grenner, Mrs. Minna Winter (president of the Women's Auxiliary) and Kalman Wagner. In 1930, David Green assumed the position of president of the Folks Farein and served as its exclusive president from 1934 until his passing on 13 May 1977. Sam Cohen was then elected the new president of the Folks Farein.
Scope and Content

History
When the threat from missionaries was no longer an issue, they became a philanthropic society dedicated to ministering to the sick and needy. Under this revised mandate, the Folks Farein provided dentures, eyeglasses, orthopaedic shoes, operative support, crutches, artificial limbs and other related medical appliances wherever needed. They maintained close contact with hospitals, sanatoria, mental institutions, local jails and reformatories to help needy Jewish patients and prisoners. They also distributed kosher meals during Passover; helped seniors get old age pensions and widows and mothers and their children get allowances where fathers were sick or incapacitated; and fed and billeted the unemployed and homeless at the Folks Farein’s premises at 37 Cecil Street. In 1945, when the first group of Jewish refugees from Europe arrived in Toronto, the Folks Farein temporarily accommodated many on its premises and provided them with meals.

Scope and Content
Accession consists of one booklet from the Apter Hilfs Farein 5th Annual Banquet held at Beth Jacob Synagogue in Toronto on Sunday, February 6, 1944.
Administrative History
The Apter Hilfs Farein was a landmanshaft organization formed by Polish immigrants to Toronto in the early twentieth century and the precursor to the Apter Friendly Society.
Upon immigrating to Canada, the immigrants purchased a small synagogue on Centre Avenue near Dundas Street in 1905. In 1918, in anticipation of more Apter immigrants coming to Toronto after the First World War, the synagogue was sold and a larger one purchased on Beverley Street. That same year a relief committee was founded as a means of helping the Apter landsleit in Poland. And while many of its members did not belong to the synagogue, the committee was permitted to hold their meetings there.
After the Second World War, the younger members of the relief committee decided to form an organization that would have a different mandate other than relief. Thus, in 1946 the Apter Friendly Society was founded with a membership of forty. The society instituted a series of cultural events and programming and maintained it's original social and welfare functions as well
