Fraternal Significant Tie Tack or Lapel Pin? #general

Dear Genners,

I just found an artifact >from my father. It appears to be one of the above
but does it have any particular significance?

It is a diamond shaped object 1/4 inch on the long side. There is a backing
to hold it to a tie or label and imprinted on it is

KSBA 1903

Does this have any fraternal significance?

Dear Genners,

This morning thinking about this lapel pin the year 1903 struck home.

The family story was that my father came >from Kishinev(the K). 1903 was the
year of the progrom.

Therefore, was there any organization in the USA that commemorated the
progrom that had the initials, KSBA?

Hello Shmuel: KSBA probably stands for Kishinev Sick & Benvolent Association
