Dear sisters and brothers!
You are requested to come Saturday evening April 27, 1935
at 9:00 in the evening sharp, for a general meeting at our
temple on 216 Henry Street, New York, for the following
1. The final payments. We are asking all members to come
to this meeting and pay your dues because the society has
a lot of expenses and needs the money.
2. Last nomination and election of officers.
3. We are going to report your yearly finances for the
entire year--the income and the expenses, and your
brothers and sisters--you should know how the money is
spent, and also of the health of the society. And in
general, all this is good for you to know.
4. During the general meeting on May 5, we will sell the
names that are designated for the Beth David Cemetery.
Dear sisters and brothers, the way you know the following
special meeting from the society, we are going to build a
gate at Beth David Cemetery, and a contract has already
been signed for two months. The work is already in full
movement. We think that by the end of June this year, the
gate will be finished at the cemetery. We are going to
announce to you by today's meeting, also on Sunday, that
every brother and sister is able to write in the names
that they should be exhibited on the wall of the gate,
because according to the contract, all the letters have to
be made in a factory together with the gate. The reason is
that because of the existing machinery, and the work in
the factory comes out nicer and clearer. And in order not
to spoil the whole gate, every name must be entered in the
factory before the gate is constructed. Therefore, it is
our request to you members, men and women, old and young,
who want to place their name for eternity on the wall of
the gate, or everyone could buy a position to put his name
and his wife's name, because the name will remain as a
memory for eternity. And in one-hundred years, your
children and grandchildren and also friends, they will
also utilize the Beth David Cemetery. And they will see
the names of their ancestors, and this will remain for
them a symbol and a sign, and this will create the
impression in their hearts that their parents were
constructive members in all charitable undertakings. In
this way, the children will follow in their parents'
footsteps. Working for the humanity and the day the
children will be absorbed into the society from their
parents and their landsleit from Chevra Anshe Zembrowe.
And with this, your name will be remembered forever.
We have also decided to
hold two meetings that will be cheerful--this means with
small lunches and tasty refreshments, on behalf of our
members and female members.
Remember, the quarterly meeting will take place on Sunday,
May 5 at two o'clock until the evening, and the brothers
who are not able to come Saturday evening must come Sunday
during the day. We will make one role call at the meeting,
and for whichever brother or sister will not come to the
meeting, we will certainly put them under a fine of two
dollars, and you can expect that on your next bill, you
will find the two-dollar fine, because this is the
decision from the brothers. And we won't recognize any
