Download PDF for this date

Five Jewish educators from abroad have come to The Netherlands in recent weeks to assist in the educational activities of the Jewish community. They are Amital Bar Kol, from Israel, who is the new director of the cultural department of The Netherlands Zionist Organization (NZO); Rabbi Mordechai Simcha, 55, of New York, who will coordinate Jewish education for the local Ashkenazic community; and three representatives of the World Union of Jewish Students from New York. Two of them, Jack Feldman and Dini Laub, will work in the NZO’s education department. Bath Ami Horowitz will work among Jewish students. All are studying the Dutch language.
