Within this study, I present some of the experiences that occurred in the lives of fifteen Jewish women who grew-up in pre-World War Two Eastern Europe. Using oral history as my methodology, I show how they either embraced or shunned learning about and/or practicing traditional customs and rituals at a time when traditional society was facing many modern changes. Moreover, I show their past experiences with and interpretations of their education, male/female interaction and female dress, the marriage process, a married woman's responsibilities and a married woman's commandments.
