Administrative history

The Associated Synagogues of Ottawa was a committee of the Agudath Achim Congregation (Rideau Street), Machzikei Hadas Congregation (Murray Street and Bnai Jacob Congregation (James Street). The Congregation of Adath Jeshurun (King Edward Street) joined the Associated Synagogues in 1933. The initial purpose was to arrange a spiritual leader for the Ottawa congregations. Rev. Abraham H. Freedman was their first appointment. At the Associated Synagogues Committee meeting of August 28, l933, Caspar Caplan moved “that the executives of the Associated Synagogues of Ottawa recommend that a Vaad Ha’Ir of twenty-six members be appointed by the Congregations ... and that this body administer the various branches of Jewish activities in the city, principally Hakashruth, Jewish education and spiritual guidance, with powers to act for the Congregations in the advancement of Judaism in our city”. The Associated Synagogues were organized into the Ottawa Vaad Ha’Ir in 1934.
