Baron De Rothschild Gives £18,000 to Help Palestine Hebrew School System

Condition Attached Stipulates that Religion Must be Taught (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The crisis in the Hebrew school system of Palestine will be solved this year through the generosity of Baron Edmund de Rothschild, benefactor of the Jewish colonies in Palestine.

The schools were threatened with being closed or some of the classes suspended due to the curtailment in the budget voted for education at the Fifteenth Zionist Congress. It was announced here that Baron Rothschild will contribute the amount of £8,000 on the condition that the instruction in Jewish religion be given a prominent part in the curriculum.
