PAGE FOUR J C C N E W S JULY, 1954 ir Member Orqmdzcdions Berkley Hebrew Ladies Aid Society Organized in 1908, the Berk-- Icy Hebrew Ladies' Aid Society is one of Norfolk's oldest com- munity agencies. While it was founded as a welfare organiza- tion, it assumed the role of Sis- ter of the Berkley Mikro Kodesh Synagogue which was founded at about the same time as the Society. Mrs. J. H. Goodman, mother of Mrs. Ben Paul Snyder and Mrs. Moses Salsbury, mother of Mrs. Edith S. Berman, current treasurer of the Society, were among the first presidents. Cow Aids Family In the early days, Berkley had a substantial Jewish population of over 200 families. One of their first charitable projects was to purchase a cow for a widow and her children which enabled this individual to maintain herself and family. Tile Berklcy Society has cared for the Jewish aged, transients, mashulochim, and established a Free Loan Society. During the war years it carried out extensive programs for serv- icemen, particularly those at the St. Helena Base in Berkley. They have contributed largely to Jew- ish and non-Jewish philanthro- pies. 20 Year Service Plaque A plaque was recently placed in the Mikro Kodesh Synagogue by Ihe Berkley Hebrew Ladies Aid Society in memory of ,Mrs. Liilie Aftel Goldsmith who serv- ed as secretary of the Society for twenty years until her recent dealb, Current officers include: Mrs. Louise Greenberg, president; Mrs. Lena Legum, vice-president; Mrs. UJF Morion Cushner, treasurer of the Jewish Community Council, reports that $32,000.00, one-fifth of the $160,000 five-year loan advance to the United Jewish Ap- peal has been repaid to the Na- tional Bank of Commerce and the Seaboard Citizens National Bank. Although the United Jewish Fund raised almost $200,000.00 in pledges this year, the thirty- nine agencies supported by the Fund must have cash in order to carry out their world-wide pro- grams. We, therefore, call upon all contributors to pay as much of their pledge at once so that the needs of these agencies can be met without delay. Three Organizations Join Community Council Temple Israel, Temple Israel Sisterhood and Midtown Hadas- sah Group were elected to mem- bership in the Norfolk Jewish Community Council at the last Board of Directors meeting, it was announced by Mrs. V. H. Nnsbaum, secretary. This brings the total Council organization families to thirty-six. Lewis Kootner, secretary and Mrs. Edith S. Berman, treasurer. Although the Jewish popula- tion has diminished in Berkley in recent years, almost all of those who formerly lived in Berkley re- tained their membership in the Society and in the Mikro Kodesh Synagogue. The Berkley boast is true: "Once a Berkley resident, always a Berkley resident." Former Berklians now living throughout Tidewater Virginia, still call Berkley their home and still par- ticipate in Berkley activities.
