I would really appreciate the translation into English on Minsker Old Men's Benevolent Society entry.  This photo was taken at Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, NY.  Additionally, If anyone knows anything about this Society or links, that would be great also.   
Thanks for any help.

Following excerpt from:
“Atheist or not, you will say Kaddish for your father!” Freida Sima whispered to Max as the funeral procession reached the Minsker Old Men’s Benevolent Association section in the Old Montefiore Cemetery in Queens, the landsmanschaft Abraham Kraus had joined upon his immigration to America over twenty years earlier.

Hope this info is helpful,
