The Jewish Ladies Aid Society (JLAS) - Columbus, Georgia was founded on July 5, 1874 by the membership of the Ladies Purim Association. These women decided to broaden the focus of their association, which had been limited to an annual Purim ball, to include charity and benevolence within the Jewish community and throughout the city of Columbus. Originally named the 'Daughters of Israel' this newly-formed organization subsequently changed its name to the Hebrew Benevolent Society, then the Ladies Aid Society, and finally to the Jewish Ladies Aid Society. The Jewish Ladies Aid Society functioned as the Sisterhood for Temple B'nai Israel founded in Columbus in 1854. Later changing its name to Temple Israel, the congregation is the second oldest in the State of Georgia. The collection consists primarily of minutes and financial records. The social historian interested in women's benevolence in the late 19th and early 20th centuries will find this collection of special interest. Arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder.
