Founded around 1930 in New York. Incorporated in 1946. The Association may have had a relationship to the Knights of Pythias. According to its constitution, its purpose was to foster voluntary benevolence among members, and to promote social intercourse by means of social gatherings, entertainments, and lectures. It purchased graves and functioned as a burial society. It used three cemeteries: Beth El (N.J.) and New Montefiore.
