Accession consists of english translations conducted by Miriam Beckerman on behalf of Norton Taichman, a memeber of the Ivansker Mutual Benefit Society in Toronto. Included are translations of an Ivansker Mutual Benefit Society Jubilee book from 1961, along with a print-out of the Society's e-newsletter announcing the Ivansk Project and presenting the reproduction of the jubliee book to its membership. There is also one letter sent to Miriam from Edith Kalev (Meslin) of Jerusalem. Kalev was originally from Toronto.
The records somehow made their way into the possession of Mordechai Ben-Dat, former editor of the Canadian Jewish News. They were returned to Miriam Beckerman in 2013, who subsequently donated them to the Archives.
