Scope and Content
Accession consists of copy photographs and negatives of the extended Gladstone, Naftolin and Rubinoff families and of the opening of the Mildred Arnoff Hebrew Day School at Beth Shalom Synagogue. Also included are photocopies of the 10th, 45th, and 50th Jubilee Books for the Agudas Hamishpocha (United Families) organization, and a photocopy of the Jewish Boys Club News with a story about Russell Gladstone's election as a Commissioner of the organization.
Agudas Hamishpocha was founded in Toronto in 1928 by members of the vast Rubinoff-Naftolin cousinhood, and was modeled after the mutual benefit societies, landsmanshaft organizations and similar associations founded by other local Jewish groups in the early twentieth century. As of 2013, this organization is still active.
