Under the auspices of the Orthodox Jewish organization, Agudath Israel, a women’s auxiliary to spread the Orthodox influence among Jewish women was formed and is now holding its first annual session in Lodz.
The organization is to be known as the B’noth Agudah. The convention will be in session for three days. In the papers and addresses delivered, the point of view of Orthodox Jewish women was formulated and measures were considered for combatting the influence of modernist European literature on Jewish womanhood and the fad for modern dress. Other social and economic problems of Jewish women were also discussed.
