Download PDF for this date

Of nearly 750 preparatory schools in the United States, only 250 welcome Jewish students. College preparatory schools that affirm they are open to Jewish applicants are listed in a new “Prep School Guide for Jewish Youth” released here today by the B’nai B’rith Vocational Service.

Robert Shosteck, author of the guide, is national director of research for the B’nai B’rith Vocational Service. He sent questionnaires to all prep schools in the country for a detailed compilation. Of the total, about 250 returned completed forms and gave permission for a listing indicating that students of Jewish faith would be acceptable.
