Download PDF for this date

The Mesivta High School, the first Hebrew Parochial High School in the history of Brooklyn to complete a full four years’ course, is celebrating its first graduation this Sunday afternoon at the Young Israel Building. It is the second of its kind in the entire city of New York as well as in the entire country. Prominent men in New York Jewish life will be present to address these pioneer graduates.

The Mesivta High School was established about four years ago under the direction of H. Blickstein, principal, and has developed into a full High School course under the administration of Mr. Weinberger, his assistant. Beginning with a class of about 12, the High School now has a class of about 200, many of whom come from various states in the Union, as well as from Canada. Many of them stay at the dormitories provided by the Institution and are fed in the kitchen at the expense of the Mesivta.
