Small Benevolent Society Members Of the original thousands of small societies in and around New York, very few still exist. Some have come to The United Hebrew Community of New York for help, guidance, and the free assistance we offer. The United Hebrew Community of New York is determined that other societies must survive as long as there is a membership that still expects benefits. It is our policy to sustain and support any small group to meet their daily obligations to their own membership while also helping them expand their benefits. Our staff offers all the services required to perpetuate the integrity of these societies while preserving their history. There are NO fees or expenses charged to societies that request or receive assistance. We invite all inquiries without obligation, which will remain strictly confidential.Contact our office for more information.
