Jews in Istanbul Decide to Establish New Jewish High School

Download PDF for this date

A plan for the establishment of a new Jewish high school in the city’s modern quarter of Sisli was decided upon here today by the Jewish Community of this city. The 32,000 Jews of Istanbul now have five communal elementary and one high school. In recent years, however, many Jews of higher incomes have moved to the Taxim-Sisli quarters.
