This chapter is a collection of some announcements gleaned from radical Yiddish newspapers. These passages show how working-class men and women created numerous self-education societies in cities around the country during the 1890s. In doing so, they demonstrated the extent to which they had internalized the values of intellectuals who had become—through their involvement in labor organizations, political parties, and the Yiddish press—leaders of the Jewish working class. The first announcement comes from the New Haven Educational Club, which held a banquet to host scientific lectures for the intellectual public. The second comes from the Socialist Pamphlet Fund and Workers' Education Group, which has taken upon itself the task of educating workers through systematic lectures on various elementary branches of science.
