The first Hebrew high school has been established here under the Y. M.-Y. W. H. A. auspices. With an enrollment of 21 pupils to start, classes are held twice a week and the subjects consist of Advanced Hebrew, History and the Bible. Three scholarships have already been established; one in memory of the late Louis B. Lesser, and two others by Aaron Levinstone and B. Z. Ginsburg in memory of the late Etta G. Levinstone.
