Lechowitzer Ladies Auxiliary
Associated with Congregation Bnai Isaac Anshei Lechewitz
217 Henry St, NYC

(Lyakhovichi, Slutsk uezd, Minsk gubernia, Latitude: 5302' Longitude: 2616' )

by Jerry Seligsohn

The YIVO archives consisted of dues books and one membership book from which the names were taken [archive RG 990]. Full addresses were included but, alas, some first names were not included and many were limited to first initials.  Had they known about this researcher some fifty-five years later I am sure that full biographical facts would have been noted and privacy of addresses waived.  Minutes portray the activities of the sisterhood as social with dues and donations paid out for charities and refreshments.  Names were hand-printed but there was some difficulty in deciphering the handwriting.

Lechowitz is the Yiddish name for the Belarus town of Lyaskovici [ see Where Once We Walked, latest edition] west of Pinsk. The transliterated Yiddish would better be served by spelling the name Lechewitz..However, in a later flier the spelling changes to an aleph.
