Bais-Yaakov 2 - still image [media]

The Bais Ya'akov schools strive to imbue their students with traditional ambitions and attitudes that promote communal continuity and insularity. Their success in this aim can be measured by the self-sustaining character of the movement, as each generation of graduates continues to send its own daughters to the schools that they, themselves, once attended, as well as in the high proportion of Bais Ya'akov staff members who stem from the ranks of the system's own alumni. Pictured here is the student body of the Beth Jacob School of Detroit, Michigan, in 1960.

Institution: Chavi Sperka, Detroit
