    ... his own dingy apartment which often consisted only of a kitchen and bedroom. The two higher classes were conducted in the women's section of the Syna-goguc. At the age of three (3) the child got his first haircut. Then the mother took him to Cheder. The Melamcd would seat the child at the table and start teaching him Aleph Beth. This was a mere formality. The mother would distribute candies among the children. Several months later (some would wait a year or more) the child was put in Cheder in earnest. At the age of five (5) or thereabout the child would begin to learn Chumosh (Bible). The traditional starting was "Vayikro" (Leviticus). The child's beginning to learn Chumosh was an occasion for celebration. Candies and cookies were to be distributed among the classmates and on the Sabbath ...

Die Ziele dieses Verbandes waren nicht nur materieller Art, vielmehr hat sich dieser Verband zur Aufgabe gemacht, das geistige und kulturielle Niveau des jüdischen Handwerkers zu heben, sein Ansehen unter seinen jüdischen und nichtjüdischen Mitbürgern zu erhöhen, und ihn zum Mitsprecher in der jüdischen Gesellschaft zu machen.

    ... Im Jahre 1926 beschlossen die A.H. Verbände der zionisti-schtechnischen Verbindungen Chewrussa/Bielitz, Jordania/Wien und Hasmonäa/Brünn sich in einem einzigen Verband zusammenzu-schliessen, dem sie den Namen "Haboneh" gaben, mit der Zentrale in Bielitz. Aber beim Ausbruch des zweiten Weltkrieges war der ""Haboneh" dasselbe Schicksal beschieden, wie dem übrigen euro-päischen Judentum. Die die am Leben blieben, leben nun in der ganzen Welt verstreut, nur 90 der weit über 200 Mitglieder leben in Israel. Trotz der riesigen Entfernungen, es wohnen Brüder in Australien, New Zealand, Argentinien und Brasilien, gibt es einen herzlichen Kontakt.
