Molodetzner Benevolent Association
Congregation Chevra Molodetsno

(Maladzyechna, Vileika uezd, Vilna gubernia, Latitude: 5419' Longitude: 2651')

contributed by Jerry Seligsohn

I originally guessed that the Chevra, whose records cover twenty years from the late 1950's to the late 70's, was a replacement convenience for the earlier Young Men's Benevolent Association.  From a careful study of the records I no longer hold that view.  As a consequence, the two organizations have their own archive designation at YIVO.  Certainly a benevolent society would have more functions than only a chevra burial society. For those of you who might have a fuller knowledge of these organizations please let me know at
