Volkovysk Associations

Congregation Adath Wolkowisk of Browsville
Wolkowyski Relief Society
Wolkowiski Young Mens Benevolent Association

(Volkovysk, Volkovysk uezd, Grodno gubernia)

contributed by Jerry Seligsohn

This is the first instance that this researcher used more than one archive to locate his materials.  In fact, three separate RG boxes became sources.  The Congregation name list was in cursive so we caution the reader to be wary of spelling.  The Young Mens Association came from a printed program.  Therefore all errors are to be ascribed to my carelessness.  We again must complement the organizing ability of the YIVO archivists and their eagerness to be of assistance.  We urge you to pay a visit and to see for yourselves.

Congregation Adath Wolkowisk of Brownsville [1911-1933] was organized to provide free loans, to purchase cemetery plots and to organize a synagogue for study and prayer.

The Wolkowyski Relief Society was founded in 1917 to provide succor for the landslayt in the Old Country.  It was quartered in the Wolkowysk Synagogue at 28 Pike Street. The file contains a copy of a letter from the Guarantee Trust introducing Henry Nachimoff and Abraham Berg who carried letters of credit for $95,000 [Feb 1921].  The society was disbanded in 1923.

The Wolkowiski Young Men's Benevolent Association features a 1927 celebratory booklet for its thirtieth anniversary.
