The collection contains approximately 350 pieces of correspondence and financial documents from the archive of the Central Committee Knesseth Israel Charity of Rabbi Meier Baal Haness in Jerusalem, an organization providing financial assistance to the poor. The archive includes letters from Jewish businesses on letterhead stationery, as well as from private individuals, with handwritten notes concerning their contributions, frequently accompanied by requests for information, prayers, or items from the Holy Land. The majority of the letters are from the United States, but others are from locations in Canada, England, and other countries.
