"The Society collected donations to buy material, from which were sewn clothing and footwear for those in need. Craftsmen - members of the brotherhood - worked freeofcharge. On Passover (in the spring) and Sukkot (in the autumn), 200-300 sets of clothing were distributed." Abram Bekier, Tel Aviv

Rebuilding a Jewish home for the elderly in Chelm - a civic project of the town's Jewish community.
"It was a gathering of all the clerks and members of the Community Council of Jadw (a small settlement on the railway line from Warsaw to T1uszcz and Lochw). In the Council there were three representatives from the Jewish community. They are sitting in the second row - the first, second, and fifth from the left. One of them was named Chryniewicki or Chryniewiecki. I was working in the office at that time, which is why I'm in the picture."
