Yiddish to Be Taught in Hebrew Schools in Poland.

Yiddish will be taught in the Hebrew schools in Poland belonging to the Tarbuth Hebrew Cultural Organisation, according to a resolution adopted at the Tarbuth Conference which has been held here, with the participation of Mr. Ch. N. Bialik, the Hebrew poet laureate.

A heated debate followed the introduction of the resolution by the Hashomer Hazair Organisation, asking that the teaching of the Yiddish language should be made compulsory in the Tarbuth schools. An amendment modifying the resolution, by providing that Yiddish language and literature should be taught only in the upper classes of the Tarbuth Hebrew schools was finally carried on being put to the vote.
