Bais Yaakov Journal Issue 134 (1936)

  • Article by the German-born Rabbi Benjamin Zeev Jacobson addressing Bnos members describes his recent trip from Western Europe to Poland, where he visited different Bais Yaakov seminaries, and encourages readers to take pride in Bais Yaakov and Bnos
  • Jacob Rosenheim’s essay, “Morality and Agudath Yisrael”, traces the history of the Hebrew term musar, and explores different attitudes toward questions of morality and consciousness, arguing that the Musar movement is important to the work of Agudath Israel and vice versa 
  • Yehuda Leib Orlean’s “Enlightenment or Reason” argues against the Jewish enlightenment, which failed–as seen in Germany today; he calls for a rejection of the idea of the Haskalah and an embrace of Jewish reason, which can be only found in the Jewish tradition
  • I. L. Gersht’s article on “Two Generations in the Literature of Haskalah (Jewish Enlightenment)” notes that the “leftists” are celebrating 100 years since the birth of Abramovitch (Mendele Moykher-Sforym), and 60 years since the Hebrew poet Tshernikhovsky’s, two writers who symbolize the two generations of the literature of the Jewish enlightenment, which Gersht argues was devoted to Jewish assimilation (continued in issue 143)  
  • Poem by Israel Emiat (“Quiet”). Short story by Elimelekh Shteyer, “The Last Word of Shlomo Malkiel”, which takes place in a village in the Land of Israel, where Jewish men fight Arabs from a nearby village.
  • Rachel Milstein’s “Let’s Protect our Positions” reports on the closures of kindergartens in Bais Yaakov schools and of Bnos chapters and calls for the support of the schools and all their classes.
