Kalmen Berger arrived in Toronto from Stashiv, Poland in 1927. He became involved with multiple groups and organizations within the Jewish community, including the Canadian Jewish Congress, landsmanshaften, the Yiddish Culture Society and Welfare, the Jewish Library, Israel Bonds, and the Jewish National Fund. His energy found a special outlet in the Labour Zionist Movement: Farband, Histadrut, youth and camps, and education. The latter was a passion of his: he was associated with the Folk shul before associating himself with Bialik Hebrew Day School, which was a major commitment in the final eleven years of his life.
