The Queen of Bais Yaakov
by: Miriam Zakon
Dr. Judith Grunfeld was a fascinating woman living in fascinating times. As a young German Jew she traveled to a primitive Polish town to meet an obscure seamstress by the name of Sarah Schenirer. Together, these two very different women founded the Bais Yaakov movement that changed the face of Torah Judaism. Much later she faced another daunting challenge, as she fought to keep hundreds of refugee children true to their heritage during the six years that they lived in a sleepy English village that had never seen a Jew before. Her story will enthrall and inspire Jewish girls. One of a series of biographies of notable Jewish women.
