National Council of Jewish Women Kitchen Class for Immigrants

National Council of Jewish Women Kitchen Class for Immigrants

"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."
