Jewish Alliance Snubs ‘concession’

“I beg to advise you,” the letter, addressed to William Rosenberg, executive secretary of the Alliance, reads, “that this matter has been very thoroughly considered by the Board of Superintendents, and it was decided that the schools should open on September 11th in accordance with the bylaws of the Board of Education.”

According to Mr. Rosenberg, this is interpreted as a concession to the alliance. The by-laws of the board, he maintains, state that school opening should take place or the first Monday after Labor Day in September, which this year falls on the tenth. Further, that was the date of opening announced recently by the Board. Rosenberg’s opinion, which could not be verified yesterday because no member of the Board of Education could be reached is that the original by-laws were amended to take care of the contingency.

Whether the new date is a concession or not, however, it is unsatisfactory to the Alliance, Rosenberg informed the Jewish Daily Bulletin. A letter protesting the decision will be formulated by Dr. Bernard Drachman, president, and Rosenberg, either today or tomorrow, in which the demand will be made that school opening be deferred until the twelfth of the month.

If this request is not granted, Rosenberg states, a written appeal will be issued by the Alliance to all parents of Jewish children urging them to keep their children from attending school on the second day of Rosh Hashonah, as well as the first.
