Greetings of Secretary of Arrangement Committee

Our Society came into being in 1895. It was founded by a small vanguard of Lubarer to fill a need in their lives. They were all strangers in a strange land; most of them were without family, all had severed old ties, and they were lonely. It was only natural, then, that they should seek out one another and form a fraternal bond. This was the early beginning.

In the next two decades, as part of a huge migration from Czarist Russia, many Lubarer came to this land, settled in New York, and became part of the Lubarer colony. The newcomers "joined up". The Society was a neccesity to them; it was their anchorage, their tie to old loyalties, their bridge to a newer life. So they joined up and they belonged.

With passing years our Society grew in numbers and in usefulness. It helped its members in sickness and in need. It provided effective aid, after two world wars, to Lubarer victims abroad. It took part in drives to aid Jewish victims the world over. It was a gathering place for its members and their families, bringing them together at gala functions, such as this one today. The Society stands ever ready to serve its members, and to participate in Jewish work. It needs and invites the support of the children of our members. Let the children come in, fashion the Society to their needs, and perpetuate the organization of their fathers.

It is fitting that I should mention an outstanding member and leader in our Society. He founded, and guided the organization for many years with a sure hand. He is our Honarary President, Brother Edward Sinberg, known affectionately to many as "Bushe". On this 55th Anniversary we all wish him good health and a long life.

I wish to thank Brother Henry Feinman, for his invaluable work as Assistant Secretary to the Arrangement Committee.

I greet the officers and active members of this organization. I greet Lubarer everywhere, and wish them all well.

Samuel Sosnen
