Administrative matters

It also contains annual reports for various organizations in the Vancouver Jewish community, including the Community Centre Committee, the Community Council, the Jewish Welfare Bureau, and the Budget Committee until 1980. Also included is material relating to a fact-finding initiative leading to the project to create an ongoing census survey of the community (see Census cards series), and a project to honour past presidents of the Community Centre which provides names and tenure dates for Community Centre Presidents from 1932-1954. There are also various committee reports, grant applications, correspondence files and publicity and clipping file.

Fundraising campaigns

Series consists of records relating to community wide fundraising campaigns organized initially by the Vancouver Jewish Community Fund and then by the Fund and Council operating under the Jewish Community Trust Fund of Vancouver. Included are lists of names assigned to the volunteer canvassers, canvasser lists, lists of donors and the amounts given, and staple bound books of donations receipt copies.

Census card catalogue

Series consists of cards used to collect and document information on community members and families over the course of the operation of the Jewish Community Fund and Council. They are organized into series of geographical locations in BC and within each region alphabetically by the last name of the head of the family household (generally the father/husband). This census card survey program was instituted in order to determine the need and interest for a new Jewish Community Centre in Vancouver. The program was planned by the Council with advice sought and received from the Canadian Jewish Congress, specifically from Louis Rosenberg who had completed a significant survey of Canadian Jewry for the Canadian Jewish Congress.

As a result of research, the Fund and Council began the program of surveying families and individuals in the community in the late 1940s , noting down information such as name of family head and spouse, home address, workplace name and address, telephone numbers for home and business, names of children, date born, affiliation with community organizations. The survey was conducted primarily by telephone, and the surveyors appear to have been volunteers. Information was updated on individual cards until too much information had changed, whereupon the old card was retired and a new one created. The surveying continued until the early 1980s.
