Description

The majority of this book serves as a record of sundry accounts as drafted by the gabay (a position similar to a warden or a sexton) of Mikveh Israel, from 1824 to 1857. Accounts covered include seat rents/sales, ground and building rents, offerings and collections, salaries for synagogue employees, cleaning and repair of the synagogue, taxes, the Pennsylvania state lottery, bills for gas and coal, and donations to charity. The inside front cover of the book includes a printed copy of the 1828 act to enable Mikveh Israel to lease a lot in Philadelphia, and the first several pages cover yearly incomes versus expenditures from 1827 to 1856 as well as seat rents from 1824 to 1830. Page numbering then starts over with the gabay's entries.
