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.

There are names on the columns. Most probably the founders. There is also a Young Minsker Friends Society in Mount Hebron in Queens, NY. My family is buried in that sections. They all came from Minsk, many are related and knew each other. Many groups formed burial societies and bought a section in a cemetery and sold plots to their members. 
Are you looking for a specific name?
