  • Mss 109, Jewish Ladies Aid Society (Columbus, Ga.) Records

    The Jewish Ladies Aid Society (JLAS) – Columbus, Georgia was founded on July 5, 1874 by The Ladies Purim Association.  These women decided to broaden the focus of their association which was up to now limited to an annual Purim ball, to include charity and benevolence within the Jewish community and throughout the City of Columbus.  Originally named the Daughters of Israel this newly formed organization would subsequently change its name to the Hebrew Benevolent Society, The Ladies Aid Society and finally to the Jewish Ladies Aid Society.  The JLAS functioned as the Sisterhood for Temple B’nai Israel founded in Columbus in 1854.  Later changing its name to Temple Israel, the congregation is the second oldest in the State of Georgia. The records consist of minutes, financial records, annual reports and year books.
