12 National Groups Form Committee to Promote Hebrew Culture in Us

Twelve national Jewish organizations representing a total membership of more than 700, 000 people have joined to form a National Coordinating Committee for Hebrew Language and Culture under the auspices of the Histadruth Irvith–Hebrew Language and Culture Association–it was announced here today by Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum, chairman of the Association’s council.

The new committee, Dr. Tenenbaum said, “will have the principal task of promoting and stimulating through these organizations intensified and widespread interest in Hebrew as a living and productive language.” The specific channels of operation in the organizations would be through a diversified program of education and Hebrew courses, Hebrew publications and libraries, children’s books, dramatic programs and similar techniques geared to the promotion of the learning and use of the Hebrew language.
