Jewish Women Arguably Did More

from American Women During World War II: An Encyclopedia, Weatherford, p243

Jewish women did more

practical activities to alleviate

suffering -- at the 1893 World's Fair, 

Hannah composed a little wartime discussion

WE WERE SILENT WHEN WE SHOULD

HAVE SHOUTED. 

Many men chose amulets, eating ham

for Uncle Sam, choke down 

the breakfast bacon. 

From women came the do-it-yourself

seder kit, intimate ritual, a public war. 

Travelers tiny, Jewish women give coffee and sugar 

to strangers

goose fat, sour cream and yogurt

wine and other parts of their European habits,

unrationed.

Silk stockings, an impossible song: 

Dorothy, Rose, Belle. Lady Eleanor

whose husband hid. 

Ethel. 

Ethel.
