The first B'nai B'rith auxiliary was founded in 1909, and auxiliaries grew rapidly in the 1920s and 1930s to 178 groups and over 17,000 members reaching a peak in the 1950s with 600 chapters.

In 1995 the organization changed its name to Jewish Women International.

15Title:  Gospel Worker Society Records     
 Creator:  Gospel Worker Society 
 Dates:  1874-2006 
 Abstract:  The Gospel Worker Society (founded in 1895 by Reverend William Brunner Musselman) is a nondenominational Christian missionary ministry designed to reach people outside of an established church community, and to encourage them to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. This goal was reached by holding missionary meetings, daily colportage work, tent meetings and saloon work. In 1896 two branches of the Home Missionary Society were established, one being for men and one for women. In 1897 the Women's Home Missionary Society was changed to the Gospel Worker Society, and has remained the Society's name since. Although it started in Annandale, New Jersey, the Gospel Worker Society soon spread to various towns, including Williamsport, Pennsylvania. In 1907 the Gospel Worker Society (as well as their publishing company: the Herald Publishing House) moved their headquarters to Cleveland, Ohio. They resided in a fifteen-building complex on the corner of West Seventh and Jefferson Avenue. In order to stop distributing nondenominational literature that was not written by the Society itself, the Herald Publishing House was started in 1902 by the Society to print its own literature for distribution. After much expansion and numerous name changes the Herald Publishing House became known as the Union Gospel Press in 1922. In 1938 Rev. Musselman passed away, and his youngest daughter, Miss Mary E. Musselman, was elected as president, who led the nonprofit organization until her death in 1971. After Miss Musselman's death, Miss Julia P. Stabley was elected president until her retirement in 1990. Today (as of June 2007) The Incorporated Trustees of the Gospel Workers Society and Union Gospel Press is under the leadership of Mrs. Beryl C. Bidlen, who was elected president in 1990. In 1950 the Gospel Workers Society and the Union Gospel Press moved to their present locations (as of June of 2007) at the corner of Brookpark Road (State Route 17) and Broadview Road (State Route 176). The collection consists of group photographs of members of the Society as well as information on a house located at 2028 Corning Street in Cuyahoga County, a photograph album, and a scrapbook.

17Title:  Eleanor Rosenfeld Gerson Family Papers     
 Creator:  Gerson, Eleanor Rosenfeld Family 
 Dates:  1817-1993 
 Abstract:  Eleanor Rosenfeld Gerson continued her family's tradition of activism in Jewish and other educational, philanthropic, and social service organizations in Cleveland, Ohio. She served as a trustee and chairperson of the School on Magnolia, an alternative school, from 1973-1982. In 1985 the school was renamed the Eleanor Gerson School. Other organizations she was active in included the American Civil Liberties Union of Greater Cleveland, the Women's Community Foundation, the Jewish Family Service Association, the Jewish Community Federation, Mount Sinai Hospital, the Free Clinic of Greater Cleveland, the Heights Area Project, and the Cleveland Scholarship Program. Eleanor Rosenfeld married Benjamin Gerson in 1937, and had four children. She was the great-granddaughter of Edward Lazarus and Henrietta Wilmersdorfer Rosenfeld, who had immigrated to New York City from Uhlfeld, Germany in the mid-nineteenth century. Their son, Louis Rosenfeld, married Frederica Fatman, daughter of Joseph Fatman, in 1874. Joseph Fatman and his brother, Aaron, were owners of the firm of Fatman and Company, tobacco dealers. In December 1862, they were among the thirty Jewish merchants ordered out of Paducah, Kentucky, in the Department of the Tennessee by General U.S. Grant's Order Number 11. Eleanor Gerson's parents, Edward Lazarus and Bertha Rosenfeld, moved to Cleveland from New York City in 1925. Edward was an executive in his father-in-law Emanuel Rosenfeld's firm, Grabler Manufacturing Company. He was also active on the boards of many Jewish social service organizations. Bertha Rosenfeld was a founder of the Council of Jewish Women's Jewish Big Sister organization, and was active in other Jewish and women's groups. Bertha's parents, Emanuel and Lena Rosenfeld, came to Cleveland in the 1870s from Germany and were members of Temple Tifereth Israel. Lena Rosenfeld was an active member of the Cleveland Section, National Council of Jewish Women and The Temple's Women's Association. The collection consists of correspondence, legal and genealogical documents, diaries, account books, and newspaper and other clippings of the Rosenfeld, Fatman, and Gerson family members.
