From tap dancing to forensicsâ€” such was the range of community center activities provided during the thirty-fifth year of the Hebrew Educational Society’s existence.
Max Herzfeld, president, making his report at the annual meeting of the society at its headquarters, Hopkinson and Sutter avenues, Brooklyn, said thousands of boys and girls participated in the activities.
The Hebrew Educational Society is one of the twenty-five agencies making up the Brooklyn Federation of Jewish Charities.
SCHOOL HAS 359 PUPILS
The Hebrew school conducted by the society has a registration of 359 children, the report said, of which number thirty per cent receive tuition without charge while the remainder pay a nominal fee.
Several original compositions were written by students at the music school, thirty children are cared for in the emergency nursery school and sixty are enrolled in a class for aesthetic dancing.
Marshall Snyder was elected to succeed Herzfeld as president. Other officers chosen were Samuel A. Telsey, vice-president; Jacob L. Holtzmann, treasurer, and Nathaniel Bloom, secretary.
