United Order True Sisters Noemi #11

Hide Profile

The United Order True Sisters was organized under the name of Unabhangiger Orden Trueue Schwestern, on April 21, 1846, by a group of Jewish German-American women, in order to provide material support and mental and social stimulation of its members. In 1917 the use of the German language was abolished and the English language was adopted; the name was changed to the United Order True Sisters (UOTS). During the latter part of the nineteenth century, the Order extended its activities by embracing philanthropy throughout the country. In 1947 it organized the United Order True Sisters, Inc. National Cancer Service, which was renamed United Order True Sisters Cancer Services in 1956.

UOTS was incorporated under the laws of the State of New York, January 22, 1922, and was known as a national organization doing non-sectarian work.

The Order consists of a Grand Lodge, designated as United Order True Sisters, Inc. Grand Lodge, NY, and of constituent Lodges designated by "United Order True Sisters, Inc." followed by individual names and numbers, in order of admission, and geographical locality.

Noemi#11 was the Boston, Massachusetts chapter of UOTS, and was established in 1878. The chapter was particularly dedicated to the philanthropic cause of disabled children, and had a strong association with Children's Hospital, Boston, and Massachusetts General Hospital.
