“co-op” to Supply Dowries for Brides Formed in Lithuania

FORMATION OF A “JEWISH BRIDES COOPERATIVE,” WITH A MEMBERSHIP OF SEVERAL THOUSAND, TO PROVIDE PROSPECTIVE BRIDES WITH SUITABLE DOWRIES, WAS ANNOUNCED HERE TODAY. EVERY MEMBER OF THE COOPERATIVE WILL BE ASSESSED TWO LITS EACH (ABOUT 34 CENTS) TO MAKE UP A DOWRY FOR A MEMBER WHO IS TO BE MARRIED. ITS CREATION HAS FAVORABLY IMPRESSED LITHUANIAN SOCIAL CIRCLES AND IT IS EXPECTED THAT A SIMILAR GROUP WILL BE ORGANIZED FOR LITHUANIAN NON-JEWISH WOMEN.
