The City Council here has voted a grant of $1,200 the local Jewish school system. The announcement highlights the rebirth of Jewish (##)cational activity in Poland which has been progressing steadily during the past (##).

The education department of the Jewish Central Committee announced today that (##) Yiddish Scientific Institute (YIVO) in America is preparing a series of Yiddish (##)tbooks for use in Jewish schools in Poland. Spelling, history and literature books (##) included in this group.

A campaign to enroll all Jewish children in Poland in a Yiddish or Hebrew (##)ool is in full swing now, the Committee announced. Pointing out that the closing (##)rcises of Jewish schools in Poland were unusually successful, the Committee stres(##) that it is striving for even greater achievements next semester.

At Dushniki, in lower Silesia, a seminar for teachers in Jewish schools (##)roughout Poland will be held this summer, with special courses in Hebrew and in wish history being offered. Dr. Raphael Mahler, historian and educator, who is en (##)te from America to visit Poland, is expected to lecture at the Seminar.

A conference of leaders of the Hebrew school system was held recently in (##)oclaw ((?)reslau) where it was agreed that despite the lack of support by the Central committee, the schools were progressing at a very satisfactory rate. New Hebrew schools will be opened in Klatzke, Pietrolene, Ziembica and Chetmno next term. In(##)er Silesia a whole network of Hebrew schools, supported by “Hechalutz,” exists (##)de by side with the Committee-supported Yiddish schools.
