Rumania to Open Yiddish-language Kindergartens; Teachers Seminary Begins Courses

A number of kindergartens for Yiddish-speaking children in Jassy and Timisoara will be set up soon by the Ministry of Public Education, a Ministry spokesman announced here. With the recently announced reopening of three elementary schools conducting their classes entirely in Yiddish, the schools in these two Jewish centers now offer a complete seven-year elementary course.

The Bucharest school, the Ministry spokesman said, has been extended to six classes while the College for Yiddish Teachers has begun to operate in Bucharest. The college, he said, will graduate Yiddish teachers of all grades after completion of a four-year course and nurses for kindergartens upon completion of a one-year course of study.
