Plans for the celebration of the Seattle Talmud Torah’s fortieth anniversary with an elaborate week-long program also marking Seattle’s second annual Hebrew Education Week have been announced by Rabbi Max J. Wohlgelerntner, Talmud Torah educational director. The Talmud Torah is the largest Jewish educational institution in the Pacific Northwest.

Meanwhile, Rabbi Wohlgelerntner has invited Dr. David de Sola Pool, world-famous Hebrew scholar and spiritual leader of the Spanish Portuguese Congregation Shearith Isreal in New York, oldest synagogue in the United States, to be principal speaker at the Hebrew Education Week rites. The week will begin Friday evening, September 8 and continue through Monday, September 18.

Sixty Seattle Jewish organizations will participate in the celebration, Rabbi Wohlgelerntner announced.
