Scope and content
The papers of the South African Hebrew Dividing and Benefit Society were received by the Manuscripts and Archives Dept via the Jewish Studies Library in 2008. The Society was first established in Cape Town in 1903 by Jewish immigrants from eastern Europe. Its purpose was to provide sick and death benefits for its members and for their dependents. The earliest book of rules found in the collection was published in Yiddish in 1915. By 1938 it was printed in English.
