Women’s organization founded in 1904 in Berlin in response to the increasing prevalence of trafficking of girls. The Jüdischer Frauenbund (League of Jewish Women) campaigned for the emancipation of Jewish women and was actively involved in the modernization of Jewish social work. It was strongly influenced by the social politician and women’s rights activist Bertha Pappenheim (1859–1936), who sought to achieve a synthesis between Judaism and the women’s movement.
