The Gorlice Relief in America was first founded after the First World War, by a small number of participants. The founders were:
Dovid Shaul Kurtz
Money was then collected and sent to the Gorlice community through Mr. Reiter (see photo on [original] page 26).
Activities were resumed in 1945. The renewed committee consisted of:
Rabbi Yechezkel Halberstam
Rabbi Elimelech Eliezer Erenberg
Dovid Goldmanv Volf Shubin
Anna Weissv Dora Shapira
The money that was collected served to send food, clothing, and money, to every place where our brethren of Gorlice were located. We helped our new immigrants who arrived in America with money, support, and places to live. We similarly helped, and still help, new immigrants to Israel.
