Parents Blamed for Jewish Religious Schools Condition

Download PDF for this date

Parents in general were arraigned as being responsible for many of the unsatisfactory conditions in Jewish religious schools throughout the country by Dr. George H. Cohen, assistant United States District Attorney, during a symposium on “The Problems of the Religious School,” at the third annual convention of the Jewish Teachers Association of New England held in this city.

Mrs. David M. Samlla of Boston, representing the parents, urged the necessity for a closer understanding by the parent of the views of the rabbi, to permit closer inspection.
