Description
   Flyer in Yiddish and Hebrew expounding the obligation of women to observe the rules of Niddah properly. According to Jewish law, a woman is forbidden to maintain sexual relations with her husband during and for some time both before and after her menses. The laws relating to the menstruous woman comprise some of the most fundamental principles of the halakhic system, while a scrupulous observance of their minutiae has been one of the distinguishing signs of an exemplary traditional Jewish family life. Among the most difficult and intricate in the entire range of the halakhah, these laws are elucidated in a lengthy and detailed tractate of the same name.
