Education Society Marks Birthday

Download PDF for this date

A full week’s program of events, which opened with a dinner Saturday night, will mark celebration of the thirty-fifth anniversary of the Hebrew Educational Society, Hopkinson and Sutter avenues, Brooklyn.

When the society was founded Brownsville was the natural habitat of goats and Scotch burr growing wild in fields which are today covered with large apartment houses and business establishments.

During the entire week the building of the society will be open for inspection and exhibits illustrating the society’s activities will be staged.

Last night the Hebrew School and Sabbath School had charge of the program and a dramatic pageant was staged illustrating the development of the Jewish school through the ages. Rabbi William S. Malev will deliver an address.
