I'm curious about the kiddush cup that Sam Lorder mentioned,
I have one of my grandfather's that says "B.B.C. 50 ANNIV 1948",
we think it might have come >from a landsmanshaftn also. My grandfather

Was it common for the landsmanshaftn (spelling?) to give kiddush cups
to their members? What did the societies do, provide economic aid to their
members?
