Fonds consists of administrative and financial records of the Association as well as records of its participation and interaction with various Montreal Jewish community organizations.
Landsmanschaft organizations proliferated in the Jewish community after World War 1. The North End Hebrew Sick Benefit Society was established in 1917. In 1925, it amalgamated with three other similar associations: the Manchester Welfare Association, the Wilkomirer Hebrew Sick Benefit Association and the Beth Yerushalayim Synagogue, which possessed a cemetary.
A charter was granted by the Quebec government on December 8, 1925. The purposes for which the organization was established remained the same until the end: fraternity, sick benefits, death benefits, cemetery grounds for members and their families and to contribute to charitable, religious and welfare organizations in Montreal and Israel.
The charter granted by the Quebec government was withdrawn from all such organizations in 1976 when the social and medical services were taken over by the government. The only function left in the hands of the organizations were death benefits and cemetery grounds.
