Joseph Berman Fonds
CA JPL-A 1007 · Fonds · 1928-1995

The records in the fonds demonstrate the business and cultural accomplishments of Joseph Berman, speaking to his active presence within both the Montreal and Tel Aviv communities.

Several notebooks recount his travel experiences, which culminate in his memoir (of which there are both English and Yiddish drafts). A number of personal records, like birth and marriage certificates and financial documents, can also be found in the fonds. Both personal and professional correspondence are included, as well as poetry, speeches, and essays written by Berman.

Awards, plaques, and tributes issued from a number of organizations and institutions with which Berman was affiliated--from Bar-Ilan University to the Montreal Israel Bond Organization and the United Talmud Torahs of Montreal--are contained in the fonds, celebrating Berman's various contributions. Certificates from the Jewish Public Library commemorate Berman's role as president and his contribution to the Cumming Centre's auditorium. A number of newspaper clippings elaborate on many of these events.

Finally, a substantial number of photographs attest to his presence as a public speaker and well-known community member, with active engagement in the Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University, Jewish People’s Schools, and Bar-Ilan University.
