Records Teach Hebrew to German-jewish Youths

While world Jewry is attempting to raise $15,000,000 to expatriate their German co-religionists, children of the latter who are intending to migrate to Palestine are busily lending their ears to Victoria records.

The needles that thread their way ever those records do not spin out jazz rhythms. They fill the air with the Hebrew tongue, helping the German-Jewish youth to learn the official language of Jewish Palestine.

The records have come into popularity because the Hebrew courses arranged by the Zionist Organization and those given by private tutors are insufficient to fill the demand. A London concern has capitalized on this situation by issuing an album of twelve Hebrew-German records for beginners, each record providing one lesson.

Although the demand for these records is great, their sale is now “limited for the time being,” according to an announcement by the London firm’s representatives here. The limitation has apparently been caused by the currency regulations which do not permit import of articles for which Germany has to pay in foreign currency abroad.
