"Not the sort to be satisfied with being just an ordinary mission among the many, Leopold Cohn set about expanding his mission. In 1896 the mission opened a second branch, also in Brooklyn, and moved its headquarters to Williamsburg, and changed its name in 1897 to the Williamsburg Mission to the Jews. Its new headquarters was much larger and included, among other things, a medical clinic that offered needy Jews free medical services. Contrary to a prevailing myth, Jews did not boycott missions, and the physicians working at the clinic were nonconverted Jews who worked for pay. Like the patients who patronized the clinic, they did not consider the mission to be a danger. The mission's program included "Gospel services" on Sunday and Monday nights and sewing and English classes on other nights. The establishment of a boys' club and a Girl Scout troop indicated a growing attempt to evanglize youth."
