Events of May 17, 1902-Yidishes Tageblat

Yidishes Tageblat, May 18, 1902, as translated by Paula Hyman

A committee of women went to the shuls to tell the men to encourage their wives not to buy meat. Mrs. Silver and Mrs. Kiseloff, the most effective committee, stopped Torah readings in the middle. At almost every stop they were greeted with encouragement. Money was collected for bail.
