What is the nature of pre-school female scholarship? How and why did Jewish women in Jerusalem dare to write and publish books? Does female moral literature exist? These and other questions are discussed in the Jerusalem female voice where three essays by women from the old Yishuv in Jerusalem are revealed. The works - Sefer Zechar Olam, Sefer Hafehet Yohsin and Sefer Zichron Eliyahu - were published in Yiddish with a Hebrew translation at the end of the nineteenth century and include fragments of memoirs, midrashim and parables and morals.
