Hebrew Teachers Ass’n Convention Closes

Download PDF for this date

The third annual convention of the Hebrew Teachers Association, held at the Yeshivah College Building, closed with the adoption of a number of resolutions.

The convention advocates the creation of a federated council of all existing teachers organizations; called for a tax of one per cent of the annual salary of every member of the association to be levied for the aid of unemployed teachers. The convention found that the educational accomplishments of “Dvir”, the experimental school of the Association, justify the founding of other schools with the same progressive educational program.

Recognizing the great educational value of the summer camp, the Association plans to undertake a camp project for the summer of 1933.
