Gertrude Weil - Horace Mann - Letter from Gertrude Weil to her family, September 29, 1895

In this letter, written soon after arriving at Horace Mann in the fall of 1895, Weil recounts her first Yom Kippur away from home. She and her visiting mother kept the fast and attended services, although Gertrude was disappointed with the large amount of Hebrew in the service they attended.
