Rosa Sonneschein

By founding and editing the American Jewess, Rosa Sonneschein not only provided support and space for the emerging national network of Jewish clubwomen and created a forum in which to publicize her then unconventional views on Zionism, but also pioneered a professional role in journalism for American Jewish women.

The American Jewess

The American Jewess, published from April 1895 to August 1899, was the first independent English-language magazine published by and for Jewish women in the United States.
