NEW YORK (Jan. 1)
Jewish schools throughout Greater New York today began a Contest in Community Life. Participating children will be eligible for the regional contest to be held on February 9. At that time winners will be selected to vie for prizes, including a $350 U.S. Savings Bond, at the final contest on March 15. Books will be awarded to all regional participants.
The Contest in Community Life is being sponsored by the Educators’ Council for Federation, a group of rabbis and principals of Jewish religious schools who spearhead the efforts of New York’s 710 Jewish schools on behalf of the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of New York.
