Jewish Chautauqua Meets for Education Program

Download PDF for this date

Religion is a way of life, not a creed or form, and a religious education demands the creation of an attitude, aptitude and solicitude, calling for vision, evaluation, appreciation and consecration, according to the Rev. Dr. Louis I. Mann, rabbi of Sinai Congregation, Chicago, and vice-chancellor of the Jewish Chautauqua Society, who spoke yesterday at the 44th Assembly of the Jewish Chautauqua, meeting here at the Statler Hotel.

The Assembly was attended by 125 delegates from 15 states. The sessions opened Thursday and will conclude with group discussions today.

Miss Jeanette Miriam Goldberg, executive secretary, reporting on the work of the Society, stated that with the small sum of $12,000, the Jewish Chautauqua has made its influence felt in 35 universities all over the country.
