Talmud Torahs Asked to Make Repairs to Aid Unemployed

A communication to Talmud Torahs and other Jewish schools of the lower East Side has been issued by the Jewish Education Association calling on them to make necessary repairs on their buildings now in order to help relieve the unemployment situation. The call, according to Bernard Semel, honorary secretary of the Jewish Education Association was in response to a request from the Lower East Side Community Council of which Elmer Galloway is the chairman. The Community Council states that labor for all such work for which no provision is made in the school budgets may be supplied, provided materials are made available by the organizations. This is in line with the policy of the Prosser Committee, to give employment to men in the parks and other non-profit making institutions.
