Toronto Drildzer Congregation and Society
The Toronto Drildzer Congregation and Society is approaching its 70th anniversary. It began on January 1, 1934, as the Drildzer Young Men’s Mutual Benefit Society. As far as we know, it is the last surviving landsmanschaft for Ilza. It currently has 150 members (covering four generations). Each year they hold monthly board of directors meetings, four general meetings, a picnic and a Chanukah event. The Society makes charitable donations and maintains the Drildzer section of the Dawes Road Cemetery. In addition to leading the Ilza Historical Cemetery Restoration Project, the society has initiated an exciting film project – led by Harvey Golombek and Sam Hoffer – to record the major events, history and experience of its senior members in the founding and growth of the society. The society can be reached at 326 Wilson Ave. in Toronto.
