This Page is Dedicated by The Hebrew Free Loan Association to Morris Bankler in Grateful Recognition of His Ten Years of Outstanding Service as a Member of its Board of Trustees Mr. Bankler first became acquainted with the workings of our Association when he was selected to fill the Board vacancy created by the death of his father, I. Bankler, a trustee of many years standing, in May of 1950. It was only a short time after his appointment to the Board of Trustees that Mr. Bankler was selected to chairman the Association’s picnic committee of that year. So successful did this picnic prove to be, under his supervision, that he was consistently reappointed to this post with each passing year since that time. It was under Mr. Bankler's capable leadership, as picnic committee chairman, that the Association has enjoyed the most successful picnics, of the many it has given in the past quarter of a century. It is in recognition of this outstanding service record, that the Hebrew Free Loan Association is proud to honor Mr. Bankler with this page and express the hope, that he will continue to serve our worthy Association with the same capable leadership in the many years to come, that he has in his ten years just concluded.

ISRAEL BARENBLATT in recognition of tke outstanding services performed by bim, while serving as its president from August of 1956 to August, 1958 Mr. Barenblatt, a comparative newcomer to Association activities, was elected to the position of Association Trustee in the year 1948 and after having served in this capacity for eight consecutive years, was elevated to the position of Association president in August of 1956, a position which he held until August of 1958. The sincere and devoted manner with which he discharged his many presidential duties and responsibilities, was cause for much praise and favorable comment from fellow Association officers. Not only did he distribute Association function assignments, with above average efficiency, and many times in full neglect of his own pressing business problems, but he would also personally participate and often take the lead, in the fulfillment of these same assignments. Because of Mr. Barenblatt's efficient and inspiring leadership, the Association was able to increase its loaning capital by a sizeable amount and also give several outstanding social events that greatly enhanced its position as a leader among the Jewish organizations of San Antonio. It is in recognition of these outstanding attributes of Mr. Barenblatt, that the Hebrew Free Loan Association is pleased to honor him with this page, whereon these attributes will be permanently recorded, for viewing by himself and others, in the years to come.

For many years he depended on the Hebrew Free Loan to keep his business afloat. When he became financially able, he turned to the Hebrew Free Loan to help him repay his "debt" and find others whom he could assist. He was intimatelly acquainted with so many of the Jewish population that he was asked to sit on the Loan & Collection Committee, where he served for many years. His two main items of merchandise were wooden nickels and magi* cians supplies. He was very generous. Magicians in need could always go to Berkie for help. Berkie was singled out for special honors at their conventions and shows in 1983, 1987, and 1996. He was an ameteur magician and had a special kit for entertaining children regularly in the hospitals. San Antonio has been diminished by his death. S IS

Yea, her voice was ever so gentle, ner a harsh word did she speak, and only the good in others, she did seek. There wasn’t anything she could not do, from making her husband feel seven feet tall, to fixing a child's favorite doll. Her hand and a prayer on a feverish brow, made you feel well in no time at all. So, as we recite the “Shemah", which she taught us to do, we shall ever give thanks to “You” for the most wonderful “Queen of them all”, our “Esther”. Amen.

This page is dedicated to honor Mrs. Anna Colien by her Daughter and Son-in-law Mr. and Mrs. I. Barenblatt to thank her for the many years of unselfish devotion to our family Mrs. Anna Cohen was born in Krasnopol, Poland; spent her youth there and married Mr. Meyer Wolf Dziwak, also of the same town. Upon migrating to the United States the name of Dziwak was changed to Cohen because of the “Cohanim" heritage to which the family belonged. This remarkable woman widowed in 1919, raised eight children in Krasnopol, Poland in a true Jewish traditional manner and managed against untold hardships to keep the family together and to instill in each of the children a sense of responsibility toward each other. Realizing the uncertainty of life in Poland, she allowed two of the oldest to migrate to the United States. Later at her insistence and her son’s efforts two others were sent to Mexico and consequently also entered the United States. In 1936 after many years of divided family life her son succeeded in bringing her and the remaining four children to San Antonio, Texas. One of her basic principles is that charity is a necessity and not a luxury. At the risk of self denial, Mrs. Anna Cohen has many times contributed to worthy causes far beyond her means. Today this worthy woman counts among her blessings 16 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. DATED MARCH 15, 1959

It must be said of Mr. Cohen, that because of his overwhelming generosity in providing the Association with office space, in his business establishment, free of rent, all these years, that he is individually responsible in building up the Association’s capital by many thousands of dollars. So intensely devoted was Mr. Cohen to the Association and his duties as treasurer, that he would often set aside and neglect his own store business to take care of less important Association business. Mr. Cohen, has, by the cordial and sincere manner with which he has performed his duties as Association treasurer, so popularized himself with all who have been privileged to have contact with him, that they have consistently returned him to his treasurer’s office, by unanimous vote, year after year. It is because of his long and devoted period of service to the Association and the personal attributes mentioned, that the Association is proud to present to Mr. Cohen this page, with the expressed wish, that God will continue to bless him with the good health and full strength, necessary, for him to continue serving his beloved Hebrew Free Loan, in the years that lie ahead.
