Download PDF for this date

A unique “correspondence school” offering courses in Jewish religion and culture is now being conducted on a national scale by the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, it was announced today by Rabbi Maurice N. Eisendrath, president of the Union.

“The use of correspondence school methods was devised to provide facilities for the religious education and training of 100,000 Jewish men, women and children living in communities that are too small to maintain a synagogue or religious school where they can strengthen their Jewish ties,” the report said. The subjects include Jewish history, Jewish holidays, the Bible, Jews in America, leading a Jewish life in the modern world and other related subjects.
