Biographical / Historical

The Harmonie Club is a Jewish men’s social group that was formed in Savannah, Georgia on September 28, 1865. On October 22, 1865, vice president Lawrence Lippman addressed the new club on the topic of the recent Civil War, calling on members to “sink personal spite in oblivion” and let “Harmonie” be their aim. The Club’s constitution was adopted on December 11, 1865 and original charter on December 6, 1866. For many years the Club occupied the Masonic Hall at Bull and Broughton Streets, using Andrews Hall at Jefferson and Broughton Streets for special events. In 1883 the Club purchased 2-4 East Jones Street at Bull Street (Kanter Hall), which the Club held until 1959.
