According to http://www.jgsnydb.org/landsmanshaft/wpa2.htm, this page should have an entry describing Horodischer Bros. Ben. Association. I'm interested in a translation of that entry only. This association was listed on my g-grandparents marriage certificate. Hoping it will be a clue to their country of origin. Thank you!

1/20/2013 7:54 PM Jewishgen has an excellent community database, and Horodishche appears on it, so you don't need the text to know the name of the town:
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~community~-1943291

The text is the third paragraph on the right:
Horodishcher Bros. Ben. Association [sic]
Meetings -- 2nd and 4th Wednesday 151 Clinton st. Founded 1900 with 50 members now -- 170. Make up: mixed 5% American born 35% not compatriots [not "landslayt"]. Language of meetings -- Yiddish. Goal: the sick, benefits to the dead, real estate, supported old home [old people's home? old country?] with $1500, support local institutions. Sec[retary]:Morris Schwartz, 2801 Allenville Ave. Bronx.
