stein, the progressive leader of Temple Beth Israel and the new president of the Board of Ministers, the next School for Studies, opening in November, will take on a wider scope of work than ever before and a record breaking attendance is expected.

But the Board went still further, Rabbi Burstein explained. Steps were taken to have Rabbi Max Merritt of Berkeley conduct a branch of the school in that city in conjunction with the activities of the Hillel Foundation which he heads there.

“The school in Berkeley,” Rabbi Burstein said, “will appeal to numbers of Jewish young men and women at the University of California who already are learned in philosophy and kindred subjects. As students of the School for Jewish Studies they will undertake their training with the rich background of university education and will emerge from our courses as valuable teachers of Jewish boys and girls. They will have the modern concept of teaching and should serve as splendid people to impart Jewish religion and history to our young folks.”

The effect of this move is expected to be far reaching and is regarded now as only a beginning at a new day in Jewish education.
