Download PDF for this date

A decision to establish 14 new all-day schools in the United States during 1952 was adopted here at the annual meeting of the Torah Umesorah, a national Orthodox society for Hebrew day schools. Five of these schools will be established in the South. More than 250 delegates from various communities where Hebrew day schools exist participated in the conference.

Samuel C. Feuerstein, president of Torah Umesorah, reported that the organization has by now established close to 40 schools located in 37 cities and in 16 states. Mr. Feuerstein pointed out that in addition to establishing new schools Torah Umesorah also serviced 104 of the 147 existing Hebrew day schools in all of their operational and educational and educational areas. A report by Dr. Joseph Kaminetsky, director of Torah Umesorah, revealed that most of the communities with Jewish population groupings of 15,000 and over have day schools.
