Rabbi Benjamin J. Hollander was born in 1936 in New York City. He was the principal of the Beth Tzedec Congregational School during the early 1970s, until he was dismissed by Rabbi Stuart E. Rosenberg in 1972. This move led to the infamous lawsuit between the congregation's Board of Directors and Rabbi Rosenberg.
Rabbi Hollander made aliyah in 1972 and has lived in Jerusalem since, spending some time in a Negev development town and a Gush Etzion community. Ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary, Rabbi Hollander is affiliated with Conservative, Reform and Orthodox institutions in Israel and holds advanced degrees in literature and education from NYU and Hebrew University, respectively. A founding member of Rabbis for Human Rights, Rabbi Hollander has, since the 1970s, taught Jewish studies in Jerusalem at Hebrew Union College, Machon Schechter, the Hebrew University School for Overseas Students, and the Siegal (Cleveland) College of Jewish Studies. His field of specialization is Torah and classical commentary, which he learned, primarily, from the legendary Torah teacher, Nehama Leibowitz. He has also served as the weekly Torah commentator on Kol Yisrael radio and traveled the country as a tour educator. Over the past decade, Rabbi Hollander has regularly returned to North America as scholar-in-residence at Camp Ramah, as rabbi of alternative High Holy Day services at Congregation Beth Tzedec in Toronto and as teacher and speaker in over two hundred synagogues, communities, schools, and retreats.

1 letter
Date
19 Jun. 1945
Scope and Content
Accession consists of one letter to Nathan "Sonny" Isaacs from Rabbi Jacob Eisen. The letter is dated 19 June 1945. In it, Jacob congratulates Nathan on getting engaged and expresses his regret he could not have been in Toronto when Nathan was welcomed home. He also mentions that Nathan's best friend, Percy, was sad to learn that Nathan had departed Europe just as he arrived.
Administrative History
Nathan Isaacs (né Isaacovitch) was born on 20 November 1922. He enlisted on 5 August 1942. After training, Nathan worked in the kitchen at a Royal Canadian Air Force base in Aylmer, Ontario, while awaiting deployment to Europe. After being flown to Yorkshire, England, Nathan went on to fly thirty-five missions. He was twenty-one when he flew his first.
Following the war, bombers like Nathan received little in the way of recognition on account of the heavy civilian casualties caused by bombing. In 2013, Julian Fantino, minister of veterans affairs, gave out the Bomber Command bar to recognize Second World Bombers, including Nathan. That same year, thanks to a photograph that accompanied a Toronto Star article about Second World War bombers, Nathan was reunited with John Mulholland, the pilot with whom he flew his final mission.

Ernest Klein (1899-1983) was born in Szatmar, Hungary on 26 July 1899. He studied at the University of Vienna and served as a rabbi in several countries including Czechoslovakia, Romania, and France.

After the War, Klein came to Canada, where he became rabbi of Congregation Beth Yitshak in Toronto. A polyglot and a scholar, Klein wrote three etymological dictionaries, the most famous of which was his Comprehensive Etymological Dictionary of the English Language (1966-67). For his work, he received honourary degrees from McMaster University and the University of Guelph in 1977 and was awarded the Order of Canada in 1978. He passed away on 4 February 1983.

As a young man, Philip studied at Yeshiva University in New York City, then the Jewish Theological Seminary in Toronto. There, he was privileged to study under Rabbi Avrum A. Price, one of the world’s leading talmudic scholars. Rabbi Rosensweig married Gitel Flicht of Toronto in 1953. Soon after, he was invited to serve as rabbi for Beth Jacob Synagogue in Kitchener. There, he and Gitel raised five children: Etta, Chavi, Naomi, Leah and Avrum. The rabbi was actively involved in congregation and community activities. He established the B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundation at the Waterloo Lutheran University (Wilfred Laurier University); visited Jewish inmates at local prisons, counseling them and advocating on their behalf for kosher food; he gave tours of the synagogue to visitors, and frequently addressed high school and university students, service clubs, churches and community groups.

He was buried in the family plot at Beth Shemesh in Israel, a special cemetery for rabbis and their families.

Biography
Fred Schaeffer's wife, Beverley, grew up in Kirkland Lake, Ontario. Beverley's grandfather, Hyman Kaplan, emigrated from Vilna, Lithuania in 1907, and after a few years in New York, moved to Toronto. Shortly afterwards he became the first Jew to settle in Kirkland Lake in 1914.
In the 1920s the Jewish community in Kirkland Lake built a permanent synagogue, and acquired the aron kodesh of eastern European design, its lamps, railings, pews and reader’s desk, from the disbanded Ukrainishe Shul in Montreal. In the 1970s the Kirkland Lake Synagogue disbanded and Fred and Beverly Schaeffer acquired the aron kodesh, all of its furnishings, the ner tamid and the parochet. They generously donated these Jewish artifacts to Beth Tikvah Synagogue, Toronto, in 1988, in memory of Isadore Kaplan, father of Beverly Schaeffer and Erich Schaeffer, father of Fred Schaeffer.
Fred, married Beverley in Toronto. Like many children from Kirkland Lake, Beverley had moved to the city to attend university. Fred and Beverley are keen collectors of Canadian art. He is a retired civil engineer and a former chairman of the Canadian art historical committee at the AGO.
