"As an example of what has been accomplished let me state the work of two sections. First, a very small one in a small Western town where no synagogue exists: The women number twelve. They have organized a Sabbath-school, ...a congregation for Friday evening services,... a study circle under the leadership of an able Bible student. In philanthropy they co-operate with the forces of the city and are often instrumental in beginning new work. The other, a large section having about six hundred members, has the following departments: A large study circle under the leadership of the rabbi, a book club, a little girl's club, a sewing class, a board of friendly visitors, a free bath, mothers' meetings, kitchen garden and an employment bureau."
