Hebrew Teachers Federation Warns Against Cutting School Classes

Download PDF for this date

A trend toward cutting daily Hebrew afternoon school classes to a maximum of two hours in some Jewish communities was condemned at the biennial convention of the National Federation of Hebrew Teachers and Principals here.

The Jewish educators warned that such cuts in hourly classes were inevitably accompanied by decreases in the salaries of Jewish teachers which would mean a drop in incentives for young people to become teachers for such schools and that “the eventual loser will be the Jewish child.”

Mrs. Aviva Orlan was named “Teacher of the Year.” Jacob Rotman of Boston and Matthew Mosenics, Shemeon Pollack and Joseph Reisberg of New York were elected members of the federation’s presidium.
