The member that nominates the candicate has to vouch that the candidiade has been living in the United States for at least six months and is residing in New York at the time of his/her admission.

Note: The bylaws do not say if a member must be a Jew or come from a certain region of Europe. The obvious reason for this is that this would be discriminatory and thus against US federal law. For this reason, this document will not give you any insight into where your great grandparents came from.
