According to Joseph Hart's book "The Jew in Canada", published in
1926, the Beth Jacob Synagogoue (the Henry Street Shul) used a
cemetery "in Nrth Yonge Street" but found the land too swampy.
Accordingly, in 1924, the synagogue purchased land in Lmabton on
what is now called Royal York Road.

Pape Avenue Cemetery (Holy Blossom or Jews Cemetery)
Toronto, Ontario

Direction: East side of Pape Ave., South of Gerrard St. East

Established: 1849 Active: N
Comments: Closed 1930
The JGSC has records of the burials in this cemetery.

In September 1849 Judah G. Joseph, an optician and jeweller from
Exeter, England and Abraham Nordheimer, a piano maker from Bavaria,
purchased a patch of land 60 feet wide and 400 feet deep on the
outskirts of Leslieville, just east of Toronto, in what is now the
city's east end, near the intersection of Pape and Gerard Avenues.
The Pape Avenue Cemetery, held by the Hebrew Congregation and now
by the Holy Blossom Temple, was purchased for the sum of 20 pounds
through the provincial Chief Justice John Beverly Robinson.

The burial of Joseph's son Samuel in 1850 is believed to be the
first Jewish burial in Toronto. He is thought to be buried near the
entrance although no marker remains. The grave of Catherine, the
wife of Alfred Braham, also buried in 1850, was recorded as the
earliest Jewish grave in Toronto marked by a tombstone. The stone,
unfortunately, is no longer visible.

In fact visitors will find no gravestone predating 1863 and few
from before 1880. Most tombstones standing near the street have
toppled and are now lying beneath the sod. It is here, presumably,
that the earliest burials took place.

The Holy Blossom Cemetery on Brimley Road was consecrated in 1930.
After that few interments took place at the Pape Avenue Cemetery,
although it remained in use through the late 1940's.

Because this was the only Jewish cemetery in the area, it was
commonly referred to as the Jews Cemetery. Later, when the Holy
Blossom took over the administration of the cemetery it became
known as the Holy Blossom Cemetery. Pardes Shalom / Toronto Hebrew Memorial Park

In 1968 the United Jewish Welfare Fund, expecting that existing
Jewish cemeteries would be nearly full by 1980, started looking for
land for a new cemetery. The 36-hectares of land for Pardes Shalom
Cemetery were purchased in 1980. Eight years later, after
establishing a sufficiently large perpertual maintenance fund, the
zoning and licensing requirements were met and the first burial
took place.

Comments: Pardes Shalom was the first cemetery in the greater
Toronto region to reserve sections for people who are not
members of any synagogue or organization. The cemetery
also provides free burial for 25-30 indigents each year.

In 1906 a Jew was killed in an accident at the outskirts of the
city and buried in a non-Jewish cemetery. Horrified that the Jewish
community was not orgainized enough to deal with such occurrences,
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Weber, member of Goel Tzedec, bought land on
what is now Roselawn Avenue for a cemetery. The land was donated to
the Chesed Shel Emes (Hebrew Free Burial Society), which Weber
organized himself. Through the efforts of Rabbi Gordon, head of the
Goel Tzedc and the Chevra Tehillim congregations, the victim was
moved to the new Jewish cemetery.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
