Accession consists of records documenting the Jewish War Veterans of Canada and its unfinished project to create a book relating to Canadian Jewish servicemen. Included are drafts of the book, correspondence relating to the book, a brochure, a commemorative dinner booklet, a newspaper clipping, and screen shots of the organization's now inactive website.
The Jewish War Veterans of Canada is an organization for Jewish veterans of all wars. The Toronto Post was formed in 1976 and sponsors community events, annual dinners, and assists veterans. Around 2005, the organization had plans to erect a monument at Earl Bales Park and publish a book to commemorate all Jewish veterans; however, the organization fell into financial trouble and this project never came to fruition. The Toronto Post has since undergone a complete change of leadership and continues to operate out of its office at 4600 Bathurst Street.
