Jewish Welfare Funds Lauded for Recommending Increased Allocations for Education

The resolution adopted unanimously by leaders of the largest Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds at a meeting in New York, calling for increased financial support by the welfare funds to the American Association for Jewish Education, was hailed as a major step forward in the solution of the problems of American Jewish education, in a statement issued today by Michael A. Stavitsky, president of the American Association.

Declaring that the resolution “displayed statesmanship and sensitivity to the resent and future needs of American Jewry,” Mr. Stavitsky stated that “the implementation of the resolution and the assumption by each American Jewish community of full and complete responsibility for Jewish education, both locally and nationally, are steps toward the solution of the problems of Jewish education, which are the problems of the future of American Jewish life.”
