Admin History/Bio
In 1913, a mutual benefit society for women called the Ezras Noshim Society was formed in Toronto. Ezras Noshim started collecting funds around 1916 to purchase a home that would be converted into Toronto's first Jewish Old Folks Home. The forerunner to Baycrest Centre opened in 1919 as the Toronto Jewish Old Folks Home. It was located on Cecil Street in downtown Toronto and the women of Ezras Noshim made beds, cooked kosher meals, washed sheets and sponsored fund-raising events.
In 1954, the Jewish Home for the Aged opened on Bathurst Street to accommodate their expanding needs with the addition of a new feature -- Baycrest Hospital. This location, known as the Baycrest Centre, expanded to include several new buildings that were better able to meet the needs of the Jewish community in Toronto.
Scope and Content
Sub-series consists of negatives documenting the events and activities of several Jewish Home for the Aged groups, including the men's service group, the women's auxiliary, and the staff and residents. The images depict meetings and banquets, fundraising campaigns, images of the interior of the building, the residents partaking in daily activities and classes, and special visits by dignitaries. The negatives have been arranged chronologically by event and are described at the file or item level.

Admin History/Bio
With the post-Second World War expansion of Toronto's Jewish population, the original Jewish Home for the Aged on Cecil St. had become totally outmode in size and treament capability. By 1949 an expanding economy made it possible to begin the necessary planning for a much larger replacement facility which included the Baycrest Hospital, at 3560 Bathurst St. in North York. The sod-turning ceremony occurred on June 7, 1951. Although fundraising for the construction this facility was not the responsibility of the United Jewish Welfare Fund, the entire Toronto Jewish Community was to be canvassed for the funds to build it. The proven fundraising expertise of the UJWF, its donor lists, and the goals of its own annual campaign ensured that constant correspondence and cooperation between the campaigns was both necessary for success and vital to the avoidance of campaign competition. The continued success and growth of community contributions to all was the outcome of this ongoing collaboration.
Scope and Content
Series consists of correspondence and occasional reports documenting the relationship between the UJWF and the fundraising campaigns for the new Home for the Aged being constructed during the 1950s. Files in this sub-series have been arranged chronologically.
