Landsmanshaftn in New York


Some time ago,  the
American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) microfilmed the  incorporation records in New York County (1848 to 1920) of many Jewish organizations, including landsmanshaftn.  Dr. Michael Feldberg, Director of AJHS, located at The Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th Street, New York, NY 10011, kindly gave us permission to use copies of the incorporation records for the Bukachevtsy landsmanshaftn for this website.

We are familiar with Chevra Ohev Sholem Anshei Bukaczowce from the several burial plots in metropolitan New York cemeteries.  The incorporation papers for this organization are dated in 1913 and 1935.  However, in looking through the microfilmed records at AJHS, I also discovered incorporation papers dated 1899 for the Independent Congregation Ahavas Achim Anshi Bukoczowczer, as well as papers dated 1902 for the Bukaczowcer Biker Cholem Gemilas Chasudim Benevolent Association .  I have no information about these organizations other than the incorporation papers.  Please contact me  if you have any knowledge or family papers about any of the Bukaczowce landsmanshaftn.

Chevra Ohev Sholem Anshei Bukaczowce started out in 1913 as the Congregation for Love and Peace of the Citizens of Bukaczowce, a synagogue at 24-26 Pitt Street, New York, NY.  In 1935 they filed to legally change their name to Chevra Ohev Sholem Anshei Bukaczowce.
