Member Orgcmizcrtions B'RITH SHOLOM CENTER From the Norfolk City Lodge, which was organized by 16 men in 1915, the B'rith Sholom Center of Virginia came into being, occupying their own building, which was erect- ed by funds contributed by its mem- bers and a mortgage signed by the entire membership. B'rith Sholom Center is a fra- ternal organization with a present active membership of 450. Its mem- bers benefit among other things, by an organizational Widows Trust Fund, which was organized in 1943. The B'rith Sholom Center has been and still is, an important part of this community. During the early part of world war II, it was turned over to the Red Cross for housing sur- vivors of several torpedo sinkings, and other such emergencies, and from 1943 to 1947 the building was oc- cupied by the USO. At that time the B'rith Sholom was credited with the sale of 3 million dollars of war bonds. An interesting incident happened the night of a regular meeting, when a member advised the Red Cross needed a station wagon, which could be converted to an ambulance--funds were contributed by the members present in twenty minutes to purchase this equipment, which was viewed with pride when seen driving through the city. It's charitable contributions are many. A medicine fund for indigents has been maintained for years and thousands of dollars have been raised to purchase equipment for children and adults afflicted with cerebral palsy. The organization participates Jewish and civic affairs. It was sented the "Certificate of Honor" inspired leadership and distin service in the sale of Israeli bonds. Space would not permit printing many social and cultural events joyed by our members, however, spirit of fraternalism and tion of our members is unique, inn much as they have met every lenge.
