Zionist Conference in Canada Discusses Encouragement of Hebrew Education

The need for the overall encouragement of the Hebrew education program in Canada was stressed here by Lawrence Freiman, national president of the Zionist Organization of Canada at the first regional conference of the organizations eastern region.

Mr. Freiman, who was the keynote speaker at the two-day meeting attended by some 200 delegates, pointed out that it was only by maintaining a high level of Hebrew education that world Jewry could maintain direct communication with the State of Israel. The learning of Hebrew was only one step in the education program, Mr. Freiman observed, adding that a continuing education process dealing with cultural, economic and political matters relating to the State of Israel was also important.
