Occupation
Organiser of Omaha Hebrew Club in 1892. Vice president of Wise Memorial Hospital. Omaha representative of Industrial Removal Association (The Industrial Removal Office was created as part of the Jewish Agricultural Society to assimilate immigrants into American society, both economically and culturally. It worked to employ all Jewish immigrants and distribute them throughout the USA. see: http://findingaids.cjh.org//IRO5.html)
Death
Burial: Beth Hamedrosh Hagadol acquired Fisher’s Farm Cemetery in 1884. 8700 South 42nd St. Omaha, NE USA Plot 4-2
Note
The Industrial Removal Office was founded in New York City in 1901'to remove Jewish immigrants from crowded eastern cities and resettle them in communities throughout the United States.' There were a number of organizations which helped transfer Jews from Eastern Europe to the United States. The IRO, however, participated only in the resettlement of Jews who were already in this country. The IRO sent agents throughout the country to organize local communities to participate in its work and to investigate the potential for employment and local assistance. Apparently Philip Stein became the local agent shortly after the Omaha IRO committee was formally organized, and he was sometimes assisted by Esau Fleishman, who had been responsible for receiving some of the Romanians who arrived in 1901-2. Fleishman's daughter, Ella Auerbach, reported that: "father met every train . . . found living quarters for them or housed them in our own home until he found jobs for them in the packing houses smelters or Union Pacific shops . . . . Some families came with a s many as five children and many were the pallets laid on the floor when we ran out of beds. Many were tailors and almost all unaccustomed to heavy manual labor, and lonely besides, as well as suffering from maladjustment to a new world so that they rebelled against jobs and demanded to be returned to New York, occasioning great worry and frustration for both Father and Mother. It was therefore a great source of gratification . . . that some of these families prospered. . . and achieved wealth and position in this and nearby communities." (Aug. 1965) Carol Gendler, “The Industrial Removal Office and the Settlement of Jews in Nebraska, 1901-1917,” Nebraska History 72 (1991): 127-134. http://www.nebraskahistory.org/publish/publicat/history/full-text/1991-Jews_Settlement.pdf Date: 2/3/2010
