Dr. Naomi Seidman (University of Toronto) will discuss the Orthodox girls' school system Bais Yaakov, founded in Krakow in 1917 by a seamstress named Sarah Schenirer, which continues to flourish today. The lecture will focus on the character of the school as "a revolution in the name of tradition," in which social-ism and feminism were mobilized for the purposes of reviving Orthodoxy at a moment of great peril when girls were leaving the traditional world in droves.
