Leisure - still image [media]

The Young Women's Hebrew Association was dedicated to the uplift—both social and spiritual—of young Jews. To quote Bella Unterberg, the best way to reach young people was "… by placing before them opportunities of pleasant and refined social pleasures to attract them gradually to better, nobler and more spiritual ideas." The above scene of the "reading hour" at the Y's summer camp at the White Plains, New York, estate of Frieda Schiff Warburg and her husband Felix Warburg, could hardly be more "pleasant and refined."

Institution: 92nd Street Y, New York City
