Sarah Schenirer

This drawing served as a representation of Sarah Schenirer in the interwar period, in the absence of a photo. It appeared as a frontispiece in the first edition of her 1933 Gizamelte shriftn [Collected Writings] (Bais Yaakov Press: Lodz, 1933) and was later on a stamp used by the Israeli movement.
