New York (Apr. 14)
A call to the American Jewish community to establish the conditions to attract young Jews with talent to the professional field of Jewish education was voiced here at the sixth annual convention of the Educators Assembly of the United Synagogue of America, the congregational arm of Conservative Judaism.
The parley spelled out the need for congregational school officials to accept the professional status of Jewish educators, recognize their need for security on the job and in retirement, and to bring their personnel practices into line with these requirements. The educators further suggested that the place of Israel be enhanced in Jewish religious schools and that scientific instruction in these schools be balanced with spiritual and moral growth in the youth.
