According to the San Francisco City Directories, it appears that it only lasted from 1891 to 1902. There is an interesting article from 1897:
"ITS WORK FOR CHARITY.
"Annual Meeting and Reports of the Israelitischer Frauen Verein.
"At the meeting of the Israelitischer Frauen Verein the following officers were elected: President, Mrs. J. S. Dinkelspiel; vice-president, Mrs. Henry Wangenheim, treasurer, Mrs. Juca Newman; board of trustees--Mrs. A. A. Adler, Mrs. F. A. Haber, Mrs. M. S. Grinbaum, Mrs. George Greenzweig, Mrs. Hugo Rothschild and Mrs. H. Eppinger; counselors--Mrs. S. Blum and Mrs. S. Foorman; secetary, Leo Eloesser.
"From the secretary's report it was learned that the total disbursements for charity during the past year was $4165 40. The income from interest was $310 36, membership dues $3451, donations $640, returned charity $10. The expenditures exceeded the income, causing a deficit of $522 84. The assets of the society are $7369 04 and the membership 334.
"A resolution was passed providng that the president be authorized to appoint a committee of three to confer with the other Hebrew charitable organizations toward creating a central distributing office."
