Increase in Jewish All-day Schools Reported at Rabbinical Convention

An increase in the number of Jewish all-day schools in the United States was reported yesterday by Rabbi Eliezer Silver of Cincinnati, member of the presidium of the Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the United States and Canada. He addressed the annual convention of the Union.

Rabbi Solomon Reichman of New York, chairman of the executive committee, deplored “the attempt of the Israel Cabinet to secularize Jewish life” in Israel. Rabbi Lazar Schonfeld of New York told the 500 delegates that it was urgent that the authority of the rabbi in the American Jewish community be restored.
