THIS Golden Anniversary book was published in 1938 to mark the first 50 years of the Beth Hamidrash Hagadol Chevra Tehillim of Toronto, which was founded in 1887 and moved into the McCaul Street Synagogue about 1905. In the early 1950s it merged with the Goel Tzedec Congregation on University Avenue to become the present Beth Tzedec Congregation. Use the Search box at right to locate a specific surname.

I was pleasantly surprised while perusing the McCaul Synagogue Golden Anniversary Book on your website. In the section memorializing members who had died, I found a picture of my great great grandfather, Harry Rayefsky. I have tried in the past to find a picture of him but nobody in the family seems to have one. Now I do. Thank you! D.C., Toronto
