The Cousin’s Club was established with a formal constitution and legal by-laws in 1948. It was established for the express purpose of supporting their grandfather, David Pomerantz. Dues were $5.00 and were required monthly from each cousin. Between 1948 and 1960, the club met over 40 times and sponsored numerous fund-raising and social events including theatre parties, picnics and Chanukah parties. In addition to supporting David, they gave $5 as a gift to each child born to members and also voted funds to help out in the case of illness or hardship.
"The 20th regular meeting of the Cousins Club with Irving Friedman presiding, was held on Saturday, September 22, 1951, at the home of Evelyn and Ben Breitman. Before officially calling the meeting to order, chairman Irving Friedman and other members paid tribute to and spoke in memory of David Pomerantz whom death claimed on Aug. 29, 1951. Each told of the respect and high esteem in which Zadie was held by all who knew him and how radiant were his quiet wisdom and gentleness of spirit. A prayer was then read in his memory, a memory which his descendants have seen fit to commemorate through this group. Following this tribute, minutes of the previous meeting were read and adopted as read."
