Mendle Boorstin was active in a variety of Jewish community organizations throughout his life. He was a World War I veteran and worked as an accountant for J.N. Rosenfeld. He was executive secretary for the Fulton Lodge No. 216 Free and Accepted Masons, and was elected to that post 35 times. Other community interests included membership in the Hungarian Benevolent Society and the Jewish War Veterans. Mendle Boorstin was married to Fannie Spielberger Boorstin (1890 - 1986). Like her husband, she volunteered her time for the good of the Jewish community of Atlanta. In large part, it was her drive and persistence that led to the establishment of the Jewish home for the aged. The Mendle Boorstin Family Papers, 1914-1986, are arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder. Of special interest are the minutes of the Hungarian Benevolent Association, the newsletters from the Young Women's Hebrew Association, and the records chronicling the movement to establish a home for the aged in Atlanta. Finding aid available in library.
