A handwritten minute book of the Kalushiner Society of Charleston, South Carolina, from October 1927 through December 1936, mostly in Yiddish with some English. The Independent Kalushiner Society was a mutual aid society founded by Charleston residents who had immigrated from the shtetl of Kaluszyn in Poland. The society was founded in 1921 and provided members with benefits like no-interest loans, assistance when ill, and group insurance rates.
The collection consists of the records of the Charleston Section of the National Council of Jewish Women. A substantial portion of the collection documents the Charleston Section's fundraising activities, charitable and educational programs, membership events, and 100th anniversary celebration through photographs, printed matter, newspaper clippings, and other materials. Also included are materials documenting its administrative and financial activities and early history.
