August 17, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Jewish Education Association announces that sufficient funds have been raised for the purpose of providing immediately 2,000 free scholarships in the Talmud Torahs of this city. This is a part of the effort of the Association to get 10,000 additional children in their religious schools this Fall.

While the schools accept a certain number of free pupils, the majority pay an annual tuition free, averaging $5, per pupil. The Association stipulates that each school, in order to take advantage of the Association Scholarships, must first provide funds for its pupils as reported on its last June register.

A committee of admissions was appointed consisting of Jacob H. Rubin, Chairman, Jacob Wener and several members of the Hebrew Principals Association. This committee will arrange immediately the conditions under which scholarships, will be granted.
