Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Am Kedoshim - NYC Society to aid Galicia emigration - Questions #galicia

Alan Weiser <alanboy@...>

I am reading a book, "In The Beginning," by Chaim Potok. The story
tells about an Am Kedoshim Society in New York which functioned in the
1920s-30s to aid emigration >from Galicia to America, helping those
financially and morally to come and settle in America. My questions
1. What is the translation for Am Kedoshim?
2. Was/is there such a society Am Kedoshim anywhere?
