A social history of Jewish women in Imperial Germany, this study synthesizes German, women's, and Jewish history. The book explores the private-familial and religious-lives of the German-Jewish bourgeoisie and the public roles of Jewish women in the university, paid employment and social service.

It analyses the changing roles of Jewish women as members of an economically mobile, but socially spurned minority. The author emphasizes the crucial role women playedin creating the Jewish middle class, as well as their dual role within the Jewish family and community as powerful agents of class formation and acculturation and determined upholders of tradition.
