History

The Gesellschaft der Freunde was from 1792 until its prohibition in 1935 a Jewish aid organization in Berlin. Its members supported each other in cases of poverty, unemployment, illness and death. The Society was founded on January 29, 1792 on the initiative of Isaac Euchel, Aaron Halle-Wolfssohn, Joseph Mendelssohn, Nathan Oppenheimer and Aron Neo. Initially, the Society was an organization of enlightened bachelors who actively intervened in day-to-day political debates, such as the "early funeral." Around 1820 the Society became the cultural center of the Jewish community and the most important association of Berlin Jewry, led by respected and economically successful personalities. It was located on its own property, Neue Friedrichstraße 35, not far from the Alexanderplatz and the Old Synagogue, Heidereutergasse.

From 1880 the club withdrew from the public and became the informal center of executives of Berlin-based private and public banks, publishing houses, chemical, electrical and other important companies. During the period of the Weimar Republic there was a growing membership of non-Jewish members. On November 25, 1935, the society was banned by the National Socialists.
