LEAGUE NEEDS MEMBERS
I recently attended a Jewish meeting and was very surprised to hear that hardly anybody knew about the League of Jewish Women. This organisation, started in the early 1940s, has done amazing work. It is non-fund raising and all members are volunteers and give a lot of time and energy to helping others.
They work for the Jewish and non-Jewish community in schools, hospitals, care homes, private homes, day centres, nurseries and much more — including prisons ( JC, July 22).
Unfortunately, numbers are dwindling. At one time we had about 10,000 members, today we have about half that number. We would love to welcome younger women even if they only have a few hours a week to offer.
The League opened up many opportunities for me. I feel that is where I got my education. Frances Lester Hadley Common, Barnet, Herts
