National Hebrew Day School Group to Bolster Movement Across the Country

The formation of a Torah Umesorah Guardian Society, composed of community leaders committed to the building of Hebrew day schools across the country, was announced here today by Julius J. Rosen, of Baltimore, at a reception given by Torah Umesorah, national society for Hebrew day schools, to honor 14 recipients of its “Amudim” award.

Mr. Rosen said that formation of the society was “part of a national blueprint to stem the tide of intermarriage and galloping assimination, and to guarantee Jewish survival.” Samuel C. Feuerstein, president of Torah Umesorah, inducted 30 charter members of the society. The importance of the Hebrew day school movement was stressed in an address at the reception by Congressman Joseph Y. Resnick of New York, president of the Sullivan County Hebrew Day School.
