Manuscript Collection No. 688
Information about Srere Congregation is not available. It is known that the congregation dissolved prior to the acquisition of the records by the American Jewish Archives in 1994.
The Srere Congregation records document a few decades of an Orthodox synagogue's growth and activities. The records consist primarily of a series of ledgers in Hebrew which are arranged chronologically by year. Within the ledgers are a series of financial reports, including dues, operating expenses, and other daily activities. Additionally, the records contain scattered minutes and correspondence about the programs and building projects of the synagogue. There are no membership lists nor are there any records of the rabbis.
The papers are arranged in a single series.
