Chevra t'Hillim incorporation papers, Portland, 1914

Contributed by Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh

Chevra t'Hillim was incorporated in 1914 to offer aid and charity for Hebrew people in distress, prayers for sick and injured Hebrew people, and to instruct Hebrew people in religious movements.

Chevra means "group" and different groups were formed for reciting prayers and reading Hebrew texts.

People sought help from Chevra t'Hillim in times of illness, sorrow, or trouble. When requested, members gathered at a person's home, synagogue or funeral chapel and chanted the Psalms of David.
