World Congress of Agudas Yisroel--outtakes

These Fox News outtakes filmed on August 15 and 16, 1923, depict the first World Congress (Knessia Gedolah) of the Agudas Yisroel, an Orthodox Jewish organization. This footage is particularly notable as it captures images of the famous rabbi Israel Meir (HaKohen) Kagan, widely known as "the Chofetz Chaim,” after his influential book of the same name.

The film was preserved with funds from the Henry and Sylvia Yaschik Foundation, and contains all known footage of the 1923 Congress in the Fox Collection.
