Constituting a large population, the Jewish community of Lublin also had very wealthy members, whose standard of living was exceptionally high. At the same time, this large community also included a group that lived on the verge of poverty, struggling with constant destitution. The charity societies and organisations were designed for such groups. The organisations included the Bikur Cholim Society for the Nursing of the Sick. Members of the organisation visited and supported the sick. It even had its own synagogue at 19 Ruska Street in Lublin. There was a hospital for the poor at the synagogue in the inter-war period.
The “Drop of Milk” Society was another care organisation in Lublin. It offered milk (general nutrition) to pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers and small children. In some towns the Society provided aid to all the needy, irrespective of their religion or background.
