Biographical history

Gertrude Chaliff was born in Winnipeg in 1889, one of seven children born to Isaac and Clara Chaliff. Isaac Chaliff had emigrated from Russia in 1882. After a period working with the CPR he opened Retail stores on Winnipeg's Main Street and in Plum Coulee, Altona and MacGregor. Isaac Chaliff was a charter member of Sha'arey Zedek Synagogue in Winnipeg. Gertrude attended Norquay School in Winnipeg and in 1908 married Sam Pearlman, who had helped to manage her father's rural stores. The young couple moved to Regina where they opened Pearlman's Ladies Wear. Samuel and Gertrude had six children and some of their children and grand-children continued to operate Pearlman's Ladies Wear until the 1980s when the property was sold. Samuel was the first president of the organised Jewish community in Regina. Gertrude served as president of the ladies auxiliary and was active with many charitable groups.
