United Brisker Benevolent Society - 1949

by Jerry Seligsohn


The following names have been taken from a celebratory publication "Frendshaft Journal" and from the United Brisker Relief stationery listing of names and their offices. These were deposited at the YIVO library when the organization disbanded.

From the 1950's and on, Landsmanshaften lost membership and purpose. The need for cemetery plots, social services, relief to brethren in Belarus as well as speaking Yiddish and sharing memories of the old country no longer provided the basis for a cohesive organization. Many of these landsmanshaften dissolved and donated their papers and records to YIVO. Had they known that Jewishgen would forward some of their purposes with its emphasis on history and genealogy the landsmanshaften might have evolved and merged into Jewishgen and donated to us their membership lists and genealogy. I could not find membership lists in the YIVO records. Names were gleaned from stationery listings of officers and from donation boxes found in celebratory publications which were used to provide for the cost of the publication.

Notes 1935 United Brisker Benevolent Society
Oscar Pomerantz, President
Philip Rabinowitz, Secretary
Max Chalfy, Hospitaler

In Israel correspondence Menachem Begin is noted as a member of the Israeli Brisker Society. Also the society sent money orders to the Solovetchik Rabbis.
