Issue First Religious Education Bibliography

For the first time, the office of Education at Washington, has devoted an official pamphlet to a Bibliography of religious education, giving lists of books and articles for use in non-sectarian, Catholic, Jewish and Protestant religious education.

In a foreword, by Bess Goodykontz, Assistant Commissioner of Education, it is announced that it is intended to issue annually a Bibliography of religious education, and that work is under way for the second number. Mention is made of the Jewish Welfare Board by whom, through Dr. Mordecai Soltes, Director of Jewish extension education, the section listing articles and books giving the Jewish viewpoint was prepared.

Of the twenty-three pages devoted to the Bibliography, five are taken up by the Jewish references.
