Xew York City is the heart of American Jewry. Here 
are gathered a million and a half Jews, one-half of all 
the Jews in this country. Here is a vast community 
growing vaster every year. Here is a community life, 
already rich in achievement, and growing more promis- 
ing with every new object achieved. 

And yet the one essential to make permanent the gains 
thus far made, and to ensure progress in the future, is 
sorely lacking — the community is not sufficiently con- 
seious of itself. The community does not really know 

i itself. 

No person or group of persons has thus far been able to 
present a comprehensive account of the bewildering num- 
ber of communal activities carried on by the Jews in this 
dxy. No person or group of persons has thus far been 

j ible to give an accurate statement of the vast expenditure 

f money for these activities, and certainly no person or 

group of persons has thus far attempted to make clear 

the profound mecining for the Jew and for America of 

all these commimal efforts on the part of the Jewry of 

l\ the greatest city in the world. 

What, then, is the first duty of those who would bring 
order out of chaos in the communal life of the Jews in 
New York Cityf What is the immediate obligation of 
those who are eager to point the way for a sound and 
constructive policy of Jewish communal development in 
the years to come f Their first task, it would seem, is to 
help the community to know itself as it is at present. 



loint of view, and new work he planned and started wit' 

1 the needs of the conunuiiity in mind. 

I The "Jewish Communal Register" will then serve tw 

■reat purposes. It will help the individual Jew and th 

■ewiah Community to see themselves as they really ar 

1 relation to each other, and will thus be the first step t 

I full realization of Jewish life in this city. It will adi 

lo the progress of the general community and of th 

■ountry as a whole by furnishing the proper material 

pid the proper view-point for a true understanding o 

Jhe efforts the Jews in the foremost city of America ar 

naking to contribute their share to the fulfillment of th 

■est ideals of American life.

led upon by the nou-Jewi^ world as the authoritativi 
vesentative of Jewish interests. 
I would, indeed, have been rather strange and discoD 
ing if a tradition so deeply rooted in Jewish life a 
■ewish experience, would have been discontinaed 
I new haven which the Jews found in the 
liBphere. For a long time it looked as if Amerioai 
7 — and particularly in its greatest point of cooces 
fton, in the City of New York — would break with thi 
Kradition and be content to remain a conglomeratiin 
Isolated, small congregations. For many years 
led as if there were small hope that the greatest Jew 
aggregation in the world would make an effort U 
le on a common platform and thus make possible M 
Ition o£ both its external and internal problemBi 
re, indeed, many difSculties in the way of suohi 
[rganization. The heterogeneous character of the Jew- 


oC eactemal pressure greatly helped to weld Jewish inter- 
ests and develop community consciousness. 

Beginning with the mass immigration of Eastern 
Bnropean Jews, one generation ago, the problem of 
etganiting the Jewish community in New York City 
hmm^m^ morc acute from year to year. But the formative 
farces making for such an organization were eontinu- 
aOy gaining strength, and it required only some external 
impetOB to bring these forces into play and to precipitate 
the formation of a Eehillah or Jewish Community in this 
city. This external impetus was supplied by the Bingham 
ineidenty in the fall of the year 1908. General Bingham, 
who was then the Police Gonunissioner of New York, 
made a statement that the Jews contributed 50% of the 
criminals of New York City. This statement was after- 
wards retracted as the result of many meetings held by 
Jewish organizations, which protested vehemently against 
this unfounded accusation. While probably undue im- 
portance was attached to this incident at the time, it is 
certain that it sufficed to arouse community conscious- 
nesB to a degree where the organization of the Kehillah 
became feasible. 

2* Organization and Prognramme 

The preliminary steps leading to the organization of 
the Eehillah were taken during the fall and winter of 
1908-1909. The conference held at Clinton Hall on 
October 11 and 12, 1908, decided that an attempt be 
made to form a central organization of the Jews of New 
Toric Ci^. The breaking of the trail was entrusted to a 


I The first year of the Kehillah was crowded with n 
Kperienccs, "Each day has brought us new proofa'4 
! need of a Eehillah," declared the Chairman of t 
Executive Committee, in his report to the first annn 
pnvention. The magnitude of the internal problem 
. revealed itself. New problems were cropping i 
bntinually, clamoring for immediate attention. 
J Meanwhile, the Vaad Horabbonim or the Board 
Authoritative Rabbis was established for the regulation 

f Kashruth, of Marriage and Divorce, Circumcision am 
Jtitual Bath. The Board was also to cope with the pnfl 
f m of Sabbath Observance and to establish a Beth 19 

r Court of Arbitration, 1 

I The problems of education and of social and phitn 
hropie work received particular attention. A report a 
lie educational situation, embodying the findings of' 


3. The KehUlah at Work 


The founders of the Eehillah showed foresight, when 
tt^ defined its main task to be the formulation of our 
communal problems and the coordination of the existing 
ommunal instruments in order to call into being a con- 
leknis, organized and united community. The Kehillah 
lould surely have followed this clear-sighted policy, were 
it not for the fact that many of the vital needs of the 
Qflminnity had been entirely neglected. A careful sur- 
vey of the field disclosed the imminent necessity of creat- 
% several new communal agencies, simultaneously with 
the coordination of those already existing. The Kehillah 
then set to work with unparalleled determination and 
perseverance, and the next seven years saw the birth of 
several of the most important communal instruments. 

In 1910, the Bureau of Education was organized, for 
the purpose of standardizing the methods of Jewish edu- 
eation. This Bureau was also to find ways and means oi' 
providing Jewish training for all the Jewish children of 
school age in this city. In the seven years of its existence, 
this Bureau has grown to astonishing proportions, and 
its activities, as an educational factor, have long since 
extended beyond the city limits. The work is conducteil 
through nine departments, a description of which will be 
found elsewhere in this volume. 

The work of surveying and charting the communal 
assets of New York Jewry was undertaken in 1911 and 
the results published in the Jewish Communal Directory, 
the first attempt of its kind in this city. 

The Employment Bureau for the Handicapped began 


Imunity of New York City, and the Jewish problem 
I of its phases; second, to engage upon as m&ny 
iriments as possible through first-hand experience of 
JvariouB phases of the problem; and, third, to point 
Ithe paths along which the community might developL 
vder to become in fact a conscious, organized, united 

munity. ' ' 

Lt aside from the creation of this communal macbui' 
laud the work of specialization that this entailed, the 
Kllah has rendered a far greater service to the Jews 
lis city, by emphasizing the fact of the existence ofr 
liommunity. Its sheer existence had been a constant 
ftration of this fact. Its activities have shown the 
I leading to the ultimate development of an organized'^ 

munity. ^ 

work of coordinating the existing communal 


mnnity has materially changed during these yean, and 
all Jewish work is now carried on on a much higher 
plane than it was carried on prior to 1910.' The Federa- 
tion for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies, 
a project insistently advocated by the Eehillah, may 
fairly be pointed out as an example of the awakening 
communal consciousness. ^ 

However, one phase of the Eehillah's work receded 
into the background, owing to the all-absorbing activity 
of communal experimentation ; namely, the expansion of 
the Eehillah organization from the point of view of 
numbers. The great mass of New York Jewry, while 
tacitly approving the work of the Kehillah, has not 
displayed an active interest in the formation of its policy 
and of its programme. This indifference on the part of 
the Jewish mass may be traced to a somewhat defective 
system of representation which considered the Jewish 
society as the only unit from which representation was 
allowed to the annual convention. The distribution of 
the Jewish population in Greater New York, creating 
densely populated Jewish districts at points widely re- 
mote from each other, was another contributing factor. 
As a central organization, the Kehillah was too far re- 
moved from the simpler elements of our population, who 
are impressed only by a concrete, visible fact. Many of 
them had only heard of the existence of the Kehillah and 
most likely considered it as "one of many good organiza- 

At the last annual convention, this phase of the prob- 
lem was carefully gone into and the thorough-going 
democratization of the Kehillah decided upon. To afford

Estimate of Jewish Population 

ith this figure in mind, we can prooeed to our esti- 
i of the total Jewish population. The proportion of 
Iren between the ages of 5 and 14 to the total popu- 
•n is approximately 18%.^ But it is difficult to esti- 
3 whether the proportion of children to adults among 
5 is lower or higher than it is in the general popula- 
. On the one hand, the probability is that there are 
e children of school age in the average Jewish family 
1 in the average non-Jewish family.^ This would 
:e the proportion of children among Jews slightly 
ler than it is among non-Jews. On the other hand, 
fact that New York Jews are so largely composed of 
^ign-born immigrants, would tend to make the pro- 
tion of children lower than in the general population." 
shall therefore not be far wrong in assuming that 
proportion of children among Jews is also about 18%. 
on the basis of the 275,000 children of elementary 

' In the United States Census of IDIO, Population, Vol. Ill, p. 220, out 
I total population for New York City of 4,7G(J,8a3, the number of 
dren from to 14 is given as 800,004, or 18.0%. This would make the 
o. 1 :5.55. 

* From a study of orer 4,000 families selected at random from the 
sus cards of the Bureau of Attendance of the Board of Education, it 
I found th^t the average Jewish family has 2.5 children at school, 
rreas the average non-Jewish family has 2.85 children at school. This 
lid make a difference of .15 children per family, or 15 children per 100 
lilies. Assuming 5 to 6 individuals per family, this would mean a 
ercnce of from 2.5% to 3% in the proportion of children. 

» la the United States Census of IIUO, Population, Vol. III. p. 220, the 
portion of children between 5 and 14 years in the native population is 
(l%. whereas among the foreign-born whites it is as low as 7.0%. But 
the Jewish immigration is largely a "family immigration," the propor- 
a of children amog them is probabW twice as great as among other 
Bcigranta. Thus. Samuel Joseph in "Jewish Immigration to the united 
ites." p. 180, shows that whereas the age group "under 14" (which 
blades also children below 5) is 12.3% for all European immigrants, it 
sboat twice as large, 24.8%. among the Jews. If, therefore, we estimate 
e proportion of school children (5—14) among immigrant Tews to be 
o«t 14%, it would still be 4% lower than in the entire population. 


I school age, this would give New York a Jewish popa 
I tion of 1,527,778, or approximately 1,500,000. 

No doubt this figure will cause astonishmeot to mai 
I On^ million and a half Jews is an extraordinary co 
I munity. The nest largest Jewish community in t 
I world, that of the city of Warsaw, is estimated to ha 
I been between 300,000 and 330,000 Jews, about one-fii 
I as many as we estimate for New York. All of the cou 
I tries of Western Europe, together with the countries 
I South America, Canada and Palestioe combined, do e 
I have as many Jews as live in this city. (See map front 
I piece.) If we accept the estimate of the number of Je 
I in the world as about 14,000,000, one Jew out of eve 
I ten resides in New York. 

DiBtriljiition of Jewish Population 

How is this large population distributed* It is w 


But for the purposes of commuTial organization, these 
mdts are too large. Smaller working units are needed. 
The dty was therefore divided into fifteen districts, each 
approximately 100,000 Jews; and each district 
farther subdivided into neighborhoods of approxi- 
vately 15,000 Jews.^ The following table, together with 
the accompanying map show these divisions and their

While it is not claimed that this distribution of the 
Jewish population is accurate in the sense that a census 
enumeration would be, the divisions here suggested 
dioold be useful for practical work. No doubt in par- 
ticular localities, especially in sections which have been 
wcently built up, our estimate may need correction. But 
in moBt of the neighborhoods, the figures are as near the 
truth as we can have them at present. 

The most striking fact presented by our map is the 
▼ttistion in the size of the neighborhoods. Some of the 
Q^hborhoods include only a few blocks, whereas others

By Meib Isaacs 
Bureau of JeuHsh Education 

The need of Jewish statistics as the first essential to 
community planning and organization, was advocated by 
the Kehillah from the very first day of its existence. It 
may appear strange that anything so self-evident in all 
modem undertakings of a social or political character 
should have required a special brief in its favor when 
applied to Jewish communal affairs. Nevertheless, this 
was the case in 1909 when the Kehillah was first organ- 

Of course, statistics about a number of things Jewish 
were extant even then. But then these facts and figures 
were, in almost all cases, compiled with an eye to some 
particular phase of Jewish endeavor. They were to serve 
a special purpose. The larger aspect, the broad com- 
nnmal point of view, was almost always missing. When 
the Kehillah set out to work, the need of such a com- 
munal inventory became imminent, and the Kehillah 
has been striving ever since to supply this deficiency. 

It must be admitted that, in spite of all honest effort, 
no high degree of excellence could at any time be attained 
in this particular branch of Kehillah work. But then 
one most bear in mind that there are several nearly in- 
'iinmrnntable obttaeles in the path of the communal

When the publication of this volume w 
the previous experiences of the Kehillah 
served us in good stead. We were awar< 
ties, -and a great deal of careful planni 
obviate them. Our aim was to give the Je 
large, comprehensive outline of their 
based on facts. We wanted to present 
clearest possible manner, the assets and t 
the community, hoping that a thorough 
these will ultimately lead to an awakenic 
consciousness, to a well-ordered, well-or, 

The enumerating of Jewish organizai 
important asset of this community, wna 


at least something to start with. The next step con- 
sisted in copying these names on cards, arranging them 
in a definite order and proceeding to verify them. 
Simnltaneonsly with the process of verification of those 
listed, we were also able to discover new organizations ; 
that is, organizations that did not appear in any of the 
M lists. 

For this purpose, Greater New York was divided into 
aie hundred districts. A copy of our lists was made and 
smnged in geographic order ; and then about fifty can- 
▼MBcrs were sent out tr verify the listed organizations, 
as well as to locate the new ones. In passing, it may be 
said that onr staff of investigators consisted mainly of 
joung Jewish students. They were picked with an eye 
to good appearance, personality and a fair knowledge of 
things Jewish. We felt that mercenary motives alone 
would not bring the results desired and we tried to re- 
emit men who in one way or another havo (lis]^layc(l 
an interest in Jewish work. 

The canvassers were instructed to go through every 
street of Manhattan, Bronx and Brooklyn as well as 
through the Jewish sections of Queens and Richmond, 
and to look for signs of Jewish organizations. They were 
to read carefully all Yiddish and Hebrew signs and ask 
proprietors of halls and meeting places for lists of the 
aodeties meeting in their halls. As a precaution against 
any poesible oversight they were aLso to inquire of Jew- 
Mk butchers and grocers whether they knew of any Jew- 
ish synagogues, schools or other organizations in the 
ittil^borhood. At the same time the investigator would 
died up and verify the correctness of the names and

balked because they could not see why anyone should be 

interested to find out anything about them. Some people, 

to appease their conscience, simply sent back the stami>ed 

envelope^ empty, not even honoring us with a written 


^ And while we were tugging hard and fast to complete 
omr work within the time-limit set for it, the High Holi- 
days approached and we were confronted with a new 
task-Hi survey of the provisional synagogues. The main 
diiBcnlty in this piece of work was the fact that it 
brooked no delay. The provisional S3niagogues spring up 
a few days before the New Year only to disappear at 
eventide of the Day of Atonement. To locate them and 
obtain all data, you must do it at top speed. This necessi- 
tated the mobilization of all our resources. Every avail- 
able man was employed. The city was gone over again. 
Sew questionnaires, new instructions, a new checking 
system and new piles of cards and papers. Finally, the 
fint tangible result of the Register — a table of figures 
showing Jewish religious life at its high water-mark. 

This special canvass over, the work was begun anew 
and after several more weeks of hard pulling, the canvass 
Wtt over. The preparation of manuscript, the tabulation 
of figures, the preparation of graphs, maps, illustrations, 
was another huge piece of work. Qreat pain was taken 
with the reading of proofs and in order to insure the 
bluest degree of correctness, the printed proof was 
Duuled to the organizations for further verification. 

Now that this essential piece of conmiunal work has 
taken shape and is at the point of being submitted to the

ing the idea of an organized Jewish comn 
sands of persons were, for the first time, a 
necessity of a Eehillah, through the oral 
propaganda made incidentally while obtaii 
tion for the Register. That this informat: 
and interpreted; will accomplish much mo: 
rection, is the fond hope of the men who ha 
this task.

Religious Agencies 



By J. L. Magnes 
Chiirman, Executive Committee of the Kehillah 

It will be clear from a mere glance at the table of 
iooteots of this Department that the Religious Affairs 
f the Jewish Community of New York City are varied, 
ietnresque and complex. They are varied because we 
»ve Jews of differing religious views and practices — the 
rthodox, the Conservative and the Reformed. They are 
eturesque because we have Jews from all parts of the 
dd who have tried to peate here replicas of the re- 
ious conditions of the old homes. They are complex 
^nse, in addition to the difficulties besetting all re- 
ious activities in modern times, the Jews of New York 
re permitted the problem of their Religious Affairs to 
)w wild. They have not even gathered adequate data 
leeming their religious life and institutions, much less 
imilated or carried into effect a solution of the prob- 
1 of their Religious Affairs. 

Prom the point of view of communal organization our 
ligious Affairs have three main elements : The Syna- 
nies, the Religious Functionaries and the Ritual Insti- 


The problem of the Synagogue is not so much an 
Domic question or one of organization, as it is spirit-

Seminary of America 

Next to the Bible, the synagogne is the Jew's foremost 
eoiitribation to the spiritual life of mankind. It has revo- 
tatiaiuaEed the mode of worship and of religious instmc- 
tioii; it has enabled prayer to take the place of animal 
neriliee, democratic spiritual leadership to supersede 
priestly castes, and articulate spiritual teaching to pre- 
^t ceremonial from becoming mere mummery. The 
lynagogue, as a place of common worship and edification, 
teems to have acquired the character of an established 
itttitation during the 6th century B. C. £., among the 
Jews who were exiled to Babylon. After the Return its 
inportanee continued to grow. By the time the second 
Commonwealth fell, the synagogue had grown so strong, 
ttid 80 many of the Jewish spiritual forces had been 
Bobiliied therein, that it presented a second wall of de- 
knse against which all of Israel's enemies have since 
raried themselves in vain. There were times, indeed, 
vfaen, as in the days of the Crusades, the synagogue 
iterally offered refuge to the Jews who fled to it for 
hdter from bloodthirsty mobs. But, at all times it 
enred as a bulwark to hold off the hand of the marauder 
ram Israel's sacred heritage. 

The function of the synagogue was not limited to that 
f defense. Like the medieval castles, which outwardly,

bated to the undermining of that sentiment, but 
of all is the dwindling of Sabbath observance, 
away from attendance at the synagogue on the 
ional day of rest and common worship, the Jew 
little motive for being identified with the Gfjna- 
I, and, when he finds himself out of touch with 
fogue life it cannot be long before he becomes en- 
cold to Jewish traditions and ideals. Hence, among 
rincipal measures for the upbuilding of the syua- 
i must be the restoration of the Sabbath, a measure 
i cannot be brought about except by the united 
s of all elements in the Jewish Community, 
a rule there is a transition stage between complete 
ification with the synagogue and complete severance 
it. The force of age-long habit prevents the break 
being sudden, and so there has sprung up what is 
n as the provisional synagogue. In most cases the 
sional synagogue is an improvised place of worship 
lommodate the large number of Jews, who, no longer 
icted with the regular synagogue, still want to wor- 
in common with the rest of the Jews on the two 
important holidays of the year — Yom Kippur and 
Ha'shannah. These temporary synagogues are pri- 
mdertakings entered into by a few persons for busi- 
*nds. At least 100,000 Jewish men and women — 
s, about one-fourth of the total synagogue attend- 
of Greater New York — are exploited in this way. 
a wonderful opportunity is this for organized

What are some of the truths that stanc 
cantt The first and foremost is the fact 
gogue has lost hold on more than one-haL 
Jewish Community in the world. 
Jewish population of this city is abo 
half millions, which is a very conservati 
taking into consideration the 30%, who 
child population up to the age of fourteei 



Biases. If we add to that the 30,000 to 35,000 seats 
iound in the 120 small synagogues not yet investi- 
that out of 900,000 Jews only about 415,000 
^rsagogne Jews. 

; we ohperve the remarkable unevenness in the 
of the population affiliated with the S3niagogue, 
judged l^ districts. Whereas in the Delancey dis- 
41% are synagc^^e Jews, in Bushwick and in Bieh- 
only 7%, in West Queens only 2% worship in 
It is evident that the density of population, 
conditions, and length of stay in this country 
1m so rapid an effect upon synagogue affiliation that 
neunot but infer that the synagogue owes its existence 
Me to the momentum of the past, than to any new 
kees created in this country that make for its conserva- 
tim and development. 

Furthermore, it is significant that out of a seating 
cqiaeity of 217,725 there are only 39,260 seats in syna- 
IVMs where English sermons are preached, where, in 
iAer words, some regard is had for the needs of the 
Hug generation, to whom English is the only medium 
4 interpreting the teachings of Judaism. Of these there 
tt« 11,737 seats in synagogues where the Orthodox ritual 
imied; 16,374 where the conservative, and 14,053 where 
theBeform ritual is used. This means that less than one- 
ttUi of the permanent synagogues have reckoned with 
the environment and have to some extent, at least, taken 
root in American life. 

One to whom the future of the Jews and of Judaism is 
in object of concern cannot but view with alarm the con- 
of the synagogue, as indicated by the cold figures 

^ ^j. ttiiy single organizi 
sible material aud moral resources of 
community must be concentrated upon 
the synagogue from impending ruin. ' 
allow theological differences to paralys

preferences of various groups can be m«

elements in New York Jewry to rehab: 

In this country, as well as in all other 
the Jews have been emancipated, the sy

2,000 years, with its eternal appeal to tb< 
ions sentiments, with its inherent potefll 
that can go to make up the regeneration 
is the only institution that can define our f

estb St What shall 

be the place of tba Syna^ 
ffOffuo in the modem life 
has nc^er been a question 
so warmly debated as It is 
to-day. Should it devote 
itself exclusively to the 
fosterinff of the formal re- 
ligious life of the J«w. or 
should it take a more 
active and affsnresslve part 
in Jewish Communal af- 
fairs of to-day. as well as 
in those of the ffeneral 
community. The Free Syn- 
asoffue. organised In 1897. 
havingr to-day. a member- 
ship of approximately 1100, 
has attempted to answer 
this vital question by insti- 
tuting: a series of activi- 
ties througrh which it 
brlngrs home its distinctive 
messagre to all those whom 
it Is able to reach — the mes- 
sagre of ancient Judaism In 
terms of modern social 
service andyCivlc life. 

The SynaffOffue conducts 
services on Sunday morn- 
Ingrs at C^rneffle Hall, the 
pulpit being occupied ater- 
nately by the Rabbi of the 
Free Synagogue, and prom- 
inent laymen of the Jewish 
and the Non-Jewlsh com- 
munities. The Synagogue 
maintains branches at Clin- 
ton Hall, 151 Clinton St 
and Hunts Ft Palace. 163rd 
St. and So. Boulevard, at 
which Friday evening ser- 
vices are held. For the

The central idea of the In- 
stitutional SynaffOffue Is 
that the Synaffogrue of to- 
day moat become the Jew- 
ish community center 
which It was in former 
mriods of Jewish history. 
It must be not only a house 
of worshi]^ but must gather 
under Its roof all forms of 
communal activities, rans- 
inf from the relief of the 
poor to the recreation and 
education of the youth. 

The Institutional S y n a- 
SOfQe has accordingly en- 
coonged the organisation 
of a T. M. H. A., and con- 
ducts a religious school, 
and a synagogue ^ under 
one roof; conducts weekly

(Board of Aut&oritative Rabbis) 

By Rabbi J. Eskolskt, Secretary 

The Vaad Horabbonim, or Board of Authoritative 
Babbis, was organized under the auspices of the Eehillah 
of New York, in 1911. The intolerable conditions which 
prevailed in the religious life of New York Jewry made 
the organization of this Board imperative. The most 
veiiog problem of all was that of the rabbinate. Who 
way perform the functions of rabbi and who may nott 
Is it sufficient for one to be engaged by a congregation 
and dubbed ** Reverend "t Or is it necessary to receive 
tbe authorization (Hatorath Horoho) of some leading 
Jewish rabbit There was no authoritative body to lay 
down the rule or to enforce it. The Vaad Horabbonim 
was organized to supply this communal deficiency. 

The first ten members of the Board were chosen by 
the Eehillah from among the recognized and well-known 
rabbis in New York City. These were authorized to aug- 
ntent the membership of the Board and accordingly they 
i&vited the co-operation of twenty other rabbis, all of 
whom were attached to well known congregations and 
had rabbinical authorization from the recognized rabbis 
of the old world. The membership of the Board is now 
increased to forty-one ; all of them admittedly competent 
to decide questions of ritual (Shaalos) and all other 
Blatters pertaining to religious conduct. 

ditional jurisdiction of the rabbi. 
Board did not neglect to make its 
many of the social and philanthr 
York Jewry. A cursory review ( 
show to what extent the Jews o: 

services of this Board. 


1. Kcuhmth, The Committee o 
by the Board, divided the city int 
rabbis of each district were urged 
Kashruth under their control. 

The chicken markets were put

have its full quota of properly i

properly rinsed (Hadocho). 1 
essential as it was, was afterwa 


eided stand against a number of rabbis who were ready to 
eonntenance a certain amount of levity in Nikur. 

The committee also watched that the unleavened 
breidly the wine and liquors, as well as all other food 
artieles used for Passover shall be free from any sus- 
picion of "Chometz" or leaven, requiring that every 
article marketed shall have the ''Hechscher" of a recog- 
nized rabbL 

The committee discouraged the use of Esrogim grown 
in the south of the United States, contending that per- 
miadon to use them must be preceded by the authoriza- 
tion of competent rabbis, after they will have visited the 
plantations and will have convinced themselves that these 
Esrogim are pure and not of a ** mongrel breed". 

The Vaad also took a decided stand against the sausage 
factories which pass themselves off as '^ kosher'' without 
submitting to rabbinical supervision. 

Lack of funds hindered the Board, considerably, from 
exercising its full authority in matters of Kashruth. But, 
in spite of this handicap, the Board succeeded in greatly 
ameliorating the Eashruth situation. 

2. Marriage and Divorce. The Board insistently cau- 
tioned the Jews of New York City against the granting 
of divorce decrees by self-styled and incompetent rabbis. 
It was reiterated most emphatically that such decrees 
were invalid, and hence a menace to the Jewish marital 
relationship. The effect of this propaganda ultimately 
began to make itself felt, and today very few divorce 
decrees are issued by the unauthorized and uninitiated. 

3. Jewish Education. Looking upon Jewish Education 
from its purely religious aspect, the Board deemed it its 

urgent appeals in the pulpit calling 
the Talmud Torahs, Yeshiboth ai 

The attitude of the Board on edu« 
it to a disagreement with some of 
Bureau of Education, which was 1 
auspices of the Kehillah. The Board 
session, or time allowed for daily 
Bureau, for the schools affiliated w 
insufficient for effective religibus tvt 
versy ultimately led to the separ^ 
Horabbonim from the Kehillah, anc 
been working independently. 

The Board opposed the Gary Sys 
Schools of New York and also re^ 
against the policy of the National I 
making Yiddish, instead of Hebrew, 

4. War Relief for Rabbis. The B

tine, and the Board it alwaya ready to co-operate with the 
coiBBanes of these inatitatioDa who oomie to collect funda 
in thia eoontry. 

Fran the above it will easily be seen that the main 
pnrpoae off the Vaad Horabbonim is the perpetuation of 
tnditional Judaism in this country. The Board is con- 
noeed that this can be achieved only when the various 
•etirities ini^ugurated by it will reach a higher degree 
rf effieieD^ and thoroughness. Needless to say that the 
VBpathies of the Board are wide enough to include in 
its programme not only the regulation of purely religious 
ifidrs, but all other matters which pertain to Judaism 
ind to the welfare of the Jewish people. Thus, the Board 
is ready to assist with all its might in the restoration of 
the Jewish people to its historic home-land and to enlist 
die Orthodox congregations in behalf of this great ideal. 
The Board considers it also advisable that a committee 
of prominent Jews shall co-operate with the rabbis to 
hring about the necessary improvements in our religious 
ibirs, and also to take care that the rabbis should be 
properly provided for and not be continually exposed to 
t hazardous and insufficient income.

problem of the cantor or professional chazan may 
imed up under three heads : the trial performance, 
irt-term contract and the congregational politician, 
are the three evils which beset the pathN of the 
and their baneful influence is not only the cause 
dejection and humiliation^ but also very often the 
if his degradation. It must be borne in mind that 
Qtor combines both the artist and the religious 
msLTy and that the ill-treatment to which he is 
iibjected not only debases his art, but also degrades 
imunal dignity. 

trial performance, in its last analysis, is nothing 
t a kind of petty graft indulged in by many of 
igregations at the expense of the cantor. A con- 
on has a vacancy to fill. Naturally, it will not 
a cantor without hearing him first. The cantor 
3t receive any remuneration for the trial service. 
Qgregation has lost nothing and consequently is in 
rry to consummate the bargain. The following 
ay another cantor is heard, on trial, and the pro- 
repeated for many weeks. This means virtually a 
in salary, which the congregation would have had 
to an engaged cantor. Taken in its entirety, the 
(ion is thus losing thousands of dollars annually, 
remedy is very simple, it is the duty of the cantor 
it on payment for the trial service. This would, in 

first place, accelerate eugagements, and in the aecoi 

Bplace, do away with the other evil mentioned above, fl 

nshort-term contract of which I shall speak presently. 

Among tlic many time-honored traditions of the Jew) 

|of the old world, the relationship of the Jewish comniD) 

ity to its chaaan wa^ surely one most worthy of emnB 

Ition, The chasan was almost always a highly respe^ 

member of the commiinity and always took his M 

among the learned and pious of the town. Once he wi 

jgiven his contract and his name was entered in t4| 

'Pinkus," he retained hia position for life. Moreo«| 

is widow received a pension after his death and if ii 

an happened to be qualified for the sacred ofBce, he ba 

he "Chazakali" or first claim to his father's place. 

To the great regret of those in the profession, thi 
leautifal tradition was discontinued in the new woriJ 


ram all oongr^^tional tranaactionsy whether it is the 
kgement of a rabbi or the renovating of the vestry 
(la. This man is the deadly enemy of the cantor. He 
8 care that the cantor shall not gain too many ad- 
os in the congregation, because this may lead to a 
swal of the contract, without his benign intercession. 
weapons are those of guarded slander and petty 
leeution. And he i)er8ists in them till he dislodges his 
1 and then starts the game all over again with the 

ometimes the congregational politician is replaced by 
congregation itself. In this case, the. money is not 
:ted for personal use. As a rule it is asked for the 
pose of defraying the costs of some particularly heavy 
enditure of the synagogue ; the paying off of part of 
principal on the mortgage or the repairing of the 
ice. In other words, the congregation makes the un- 
unate candidate meet a liability which the members 
[me and are unwilling to face, 
he Jewish Cantors' Association, which was organized 
At fifteen years ago, has been striving hard to do 
y with all these evils. It insists, in the first place, 
; its members demand pa3anent for trial services and 
nnately it has found willing ears, at least, among the 
e prominent and self-respecting members of the pro- 
ioDu The Association is also ready to act as inter- 
liary between the cantors and the congregations, to 
ig them together for their mutual benefit. The cantor 
dd receive better treatment and more advantageous 
m through the elimination of the congregational 
itieian ; the congregation would be guarded against a 

It of interlopers, whose musical qualifications, knoi^ 

•e of liturgy and religious conduct are below the 
§ted standard. There is no doubt that if tlie eongrs 

i of this country would avail themselves of 
jrices of the Association whenever they have a vacanei 
fell, that it would ultimately improve the condition 
I cantor and, incidentally, that of the eongregatioo. 
f he project of founding a seminary for the training 
1 cantors was fostered for many years by thfl 
ftoeiation. The aim was to supply the needs ol 
fterican Jews by training young men for the profv 
instead of relying, exclusively, on the "finiahol 
Bduet" coming hither fi'om the old world. The projectl 
lately materialized, and a cantors' seminary wm 
Biied. But the curse that has blighted many a worthy 
llertaking in tJiis community, soon overtook this one

The elements in the Kashruth situation are ; Rabbonii 
bhochetim, slaugliter-houses, speculators, wholesaler 
petailei-s, the purchasing public. 

The problem can be treated under two general hea( 
: (1) Gassos and Dakos; and (2) Aifes. 

1. CiassoH aiid Dakos 

All of the meat slaughtered in New York City an 
[vicinity, whether for Jewish consumption or not, 
slaughtered by Shochetim under the supervision of ai 
Ithoritative Rabbonim. This is done because it pays tl. 
l.laiighter houses and packers. It pnys them because, i 


Jewish comiiiunityy and at the same time a source of 
immense profits for packers and slaughter konses. 

The slaughter houses and packing establishments in 
New York City and vicinity, are branches of the great 
packing and slaughter houses of the country. These 
slaughter houses employ Shochetim, and the Shochetim 
in turn usually choose the Bov who is to be the super- 
viser of the ShochetiuL The Bov who is chosen is usually 
a figure-head visiting the slaughter house only upon oc- 
casion. He chooses another Bov, of minor importance, 
who acts in his place, and is the actual Mashgiach on the 

The consequences of this system are varied. In the 
first place, the slaughter houses are removed by several 
degrees from any direct responsibility to the Jewisli 
community. In the second place, the Shochetim em- 
ployed by the slaughter houses have entrenched them- 
selves, and have formed what is in effect a Shochetim 
trust. It is impossible for any Shochet to be employed 
at a slaughter house except upon approval of the 
Shochetim themselves. A Shochet or a M'saya, (assis- 
tant) to be employed must have influence of one kind or 
another with the boss Shochet and the other Shochetim, 
and must pay a certain sum for admittance into the 
eharmed circle. No new Shochetim or helpers are ad- 
initted except that it be absolutely impossible to avoid it. 
The circle is kept as small as possible. In fact, the 
Shochetim rule the situation in large measure. If the 
slaughter house does not comply with their demands, 
they can threaten a strike or retaliation in other ways. 
U the Babbonim do not satisfy them, the Babbonim can 


lischarged. The packers and slaughterers seem to be 
sfied with this arrangement. Indeed, the whole policy 
he slaughterers and of the Shochetim would seem to 

keep the Bov in as weak a position as possible. The 
tion of the Rov has become so much weakened that 
some places the chief Shouhet acta as the Eov- 

he percentage of the eutire operating costs expended 

the slaugliter houses on Kasbruth, which is the life 

id of their industry in New York, is exceedingly 


efore the slaughtered meat gets into the bauds of 

house-holder, it passes through several stages of a 


1 the first place, there is the speculator. He is re- 

BirUAL I NB TlT UTlO yg 815 

retail botcher pays him the highest possible market 
price. He is also charged by the retail butcher and by 
the wholesaler with giving short measure. Yet he has 
established himself to such a degree that he has bought 
store-houses for the storing of his meat, and he can 
threaten the wholesaler with the establishment of com- 
petitive slaughter houses. 

The one time the power of the speculator is threat- 
ened is when the retail butchers strike against the slaugh- 
ter houses. They refuse at times to buy meat for a 
number of da3rs, and the speculator is caught with a 
large amount of meat on his hands. It is at such times 
that an improvement in the general situation might be 
made, but thus far no advantage of such a situation has 
been taken. 

Between the speculator and the retailer, there is very 
often a man who calls himself a wholesaler. He is 
nsnally a man who has a number of retail shops which 
he can supply at a rate somewhat more advantageous 
than the smaller retailer who has but one shop can get ; 
and, after supplying his own retail shops, he supplies 
the retail shops of a number of others. He is not, how- 
ever, an important factor in the situation. 

An attempt was made under the auspices of the Vaad 
Harabbonim of the Eehillah to get a census of the re- 
tail butchers. This was done at considerable cost, but 
unfortunately the records are not in the possession of 
the Eehillah. It is estimated that there are over 3,000 
retail butcher shops in this city calling themselves 
bdier. These butcher shops may be classified as fol- 


p) TliQse at which the wives of Rabbouim buy their 
meat. These are kosher beyond all question. 

L) Those iu charge of a man — very often a Schocbet, 
a Lam dan, or Baal-ha-Bo3 — who is known to 
everyone, as beyond suspicion in his observance 
of tlie Jewish law and tradition. These butcher 
shops also are beyond all question kosher. Such 
butcher shops regard it as a disgrace to have the 
word kosher on their windows ; certainly to have 
upon their windows "Under the Hasbgachah of 
the Eov d' Po." 

c) Then there are the shops which are regarded as 
kosher by everyone, but which for business or 
other reasons find it to their advantage to have 
a certificate signed by a well known Rov or a 
I'otrimittcp of Rabbonim. In connection with this 
practice, a long history of kosher signs might be

2. Of es 

The fowl and poultry sitaation is of the same general 
oatore, bat it moves along different lines. Here the 
Babbonim play a very small part, the chief elements 
bdng the Sdhoehetim, the producer of fowls (generally 
in fhe Middle West), the receiver in New York, the 
wboIeBaler, the marketmaziy the slanghterhonse, the re- 
taibr, the teamsters and drivers, and the consuming 

About 50,000,000 pounds of poultry are consumed 
yearly by the Jewish public of New York City. The 
poultry, which is raised in the Middle West (Ohio, 
Ulinois and Indiana) is shipped in vast quantities in 
charge of employees of the receivers in New York City. 
The price paid for the poultry in the West is fixed in 
New York City. 

On its arrival in New York City the poultry is sold to 

the ''wholesalers'' or marketmen. In order to increase 

the weight of the iK>ultry, many inhumane practices have 

been engaged upon, such as starving the chickens on the 

way from the West, and then stuffing their crops with 

a mixture of oement, sawdust and other ingredients. 

The duekens are also wet down with hose, so as to 

inerease their weight. The ''wholesaler'' generally has 

a maiket of his own where he sells live and dressed 

ponltiy to retail butchers and individual customers. In 

Us market he usually has facilities for slaughtering 

fowK Permits for such slaughtering facilities within 

the limits of New York City must be secured from the 

Department of Health. These places are usually located 


I the thinly populated fringes of densely crowded di»- 
Tlie Jewish ritual requires that only -freshly! 
led chickens be eaten. As a consequence, the Jewish' 
L-ife very often goes to the market herself, picldj 
^ a live ehieken, and Las it slaughtered. This sauitaiy j 
letiee has led to a great deal of misunderstanding 
Iween the market keepers and the retail butchers, 
retail bulehers claim that in this way they are 
Lrived of the profit wliieh they cam when selling to 
I hdiiscliolds. The whole question of "Schechita Gelt" 
fds rc^'ulation. 

SL'hochetim are entirely at the mercy of the 
[rketmcu. The Schochct must, in the first place, pay 
markelman or "wholesaler" for the privilege of 
|ii;.-Iiter!ii[: fowls on t)ic given premises. In the second 

arruAL in8Titution8 319 

Strikes have taken place, murders and other 
aes hfive been committed. A proper understanding 
the needs of a large part of the Jewish population 
the community would have led along since to the 
ining out of these abuses, and to constructive work 
ich, if begun in this phase of the Kashruth situation, 
Hht lead to an improvement in other phases of the 
Eununai life. 

t is not possible to get a fair statement in figures as 
how much extra money is being spent by the Jews 
his city on kosher meat. It is therefore only possible 
nake an approximate guess. The guess is arrived at 
he following way : 

!pon inquiry it was learned that it is fair to assume 
: the average Jewish family of five consumes at least 
len pounds of meat a week : ten pounds of beef and 
pounds of fowl. This would make three pounds 
capita per week, or 156 pounds per year. 
t is also fair to assume that of the one and a half 
ion Jews of this city, one million buy meat from 
ler butchers; particularly, in view of the fact that 
ly people who do not keep the dietary laws in their 
les, still buy meat from kosher butcher shops. Hence 
total amount of meat used by the Jews in this city, 
f be conservatively estimated at 156,000,000 pounds 
' year. 

t is further fair to assume that kosher meat costs 
cents a pound more than the same kind of meat 
d by non-Jewish butchers. Multiplying 156,000,000 


d cases that come under their notice, in their private . 

Ictice and in the wards of the public haspitals and I 

pensaries, where male Jewish children have had to bef 

kted for injuries, organic or constitutional, which | 

the direct result of circumcision incompetently.'j 

Bformed by uuskilled and inexperienced Mohelim. Tb*J 

Bents arc not to blame. They were absolutely helplcmj 

■he matter. They had no means of distinguishing be>J 

|cn the competent and incompetent Molielim. To reia-.j 

this unsatisfactory condition of affairs, the MliaU 

Ird of the Jewish Community of New York was pro-' 

I. After many futile and abortive attempts the

yeai-3 ago.

education, profession (whether he is a rabbi), place of 
residence since arrival in the United States, whether he 
is a citizen of the United States, how long he has been a 
Hohel, where he studied Milah, who was his teacher, how 
many operations he has performed, and how many of 
them in the past twelve months. The applicant must 
also state whether he knows the dangers of Milah when 
improperly performed, and must promise to study the 
pamphlet on Milali, prepared by the physicians of the 
Board, and practise Milah in accordance with the sur- 
gical principles laid down in that pamphlet. After the 
form has been filled out and signed by the candidate, 
the application is referred to the representative of the 
Agudath haMohelim for enquiries as to the candidate's 
religious and moral ^character and good standing. If 
their report is favorable, the candidate is then examined 
by the Rabbis of the Milah Board in the laws of Milah 
from the religious point of view. When he has satisfied 
this test, he is recommendad to study the pamphlet which 
sets forth the hygienic precautions that have to be taken 
by the Mohel, previous to, during, and after the opera- 
tion. One or more operations have to be performed by 
him in the presence of a surgeon appointed by the phy- 
sicians of the Board. He is also examined orally by the 
Board on the surgery and hygiene of the operation. 
When he has passed all these various tests and thus sat- 
isfied the Board as to his theoretical knowledge and 
practical skill, he is awarded a certificate of proficiency 
signed by the rabbis and physicians of the Board and 
the ChairmaiL This certificate recommends him as a 



iompetciit and qualified Mohel worthy of \mDg emplofti 
liy the Jewish public. The names and addresses of th 
lertifled Mohelim are regularly advertised ia the Engli^ 
lind Yiddish Press. Placards, giving these names ant 
Addresses, have also been posted in the Chevras of Nen 
Ifork City. It is hoped that this publicity will lead to thi 
Increased employment of only those Mohelim whose com' 
letency is certified and thus help to eliminate, in a eoa 
liderable measure, the risk of death or disease overtakinj

Work of Certified Mohelim at the Hospitals 

As a large number of Jewish bo3rs are bom in Hospi- 
tals and Lying-in Homes, the Board has during the past 
two years made, and is still making, continued efforts to 
obtain for its certified Mohelim the right to practise at 
the puUic medical institutions in the city, both those 
mider the jurisdiction of the Municipal Authorities and 
also those that are under communal control. Their efforts 
liSTe thus far attained a certain measure of success. 

An arrangement for a rota of certified Mohelim to 
attend the Lying-in Department of the Beth Israel Hos- 
pital was inaugurated in 1916, and the report of the 
Superintendent of that institution shows that it works 
wdL The report reads as follows :

Other Hospitals ] 

I At the Gouverneur Hospital where a large number ol 
Jewish male births take place, the privilege of entry for 
me Mohelim certified by the Board was obtained. This 
Incession is due to the courtesy and good will of the 
Idy supcrintcijcleiit of the institution, to the Jewish 


e official Hohd at the Lebanon flotpital holds the 
ficate of the Board, and other certified Mohelim 
individnally been accorded permissioti to eircnmeise 
reo at that institution, where parents ao desire. 
is hoped, that in course of time, all hospitals in the 
-Jewish and general — will be opened to the Certi-* 
lohelim of the Board, that all competent Mohelim 
iaing in the City will see fit to obtain Certification, 
iiat the Jewish public will only employ those en- 
on the Board 's list.

By Rev. Dh. Bernard Drachman, President J 

The Jewish Sabbath Association was organized,! 
I rather incorporated, for it had existed for some 9 
I previous in an unincorporated condition, in the n 
1 1905 (5665). Its organization was owing to a deep l| 
I ing on the part of many earnest Jews that a detcroul 
I effort must be made to prevent the observance of 1 
1 Sabbath, the most fundamental precept and distingal 
ling characteristic of Judaism, from falling into nil 
I desuetude in America. The incorporators were Rev. I

■HB of tba H0I7 ttebbath in every possible way." In 
then few wisda an enonnona prc^tranune of work is 
■ggHted, for it means nothing leas than the attempt to 
■ire one of the — perhaps the — gravest religious and ao- 
U problems of modem Jewry. It would be, of course, 
bqwrnible, within the limita of thia article, to treat with 
Vy degree of exhaustivaneaa the various kinds of aetivi- 
M which the Jewish Sabbath Association has hitherto 
ikan op or hopes to take up in the future for the attain- 
■eat of its object. Stated in the briefest possible eom- 
NSi they are the following : 

(1) Propaganda. Every effort is made to preserve 
he Kntimest of attachment to the Sabbath still existing 
nong the Jewish people and to promote this sentiment 
^ir this purpose meetings are held io synagogues and 
tber places, co-operating societies of women, young peo- 
llt and workingmen have been organized, and circulars 
nd pamphlets have been printed and distributed. For 
neral years the Aasociation maintained a monthly or- 
MD, Th« Sabbath Journal, in English, Yiddish and He- 
rew. This propaganda work has had noteworthy re- 

(2] Intereeanon. The Association intercedes with 
■srehanta and manufacturers who have kept their ea- 
■blisbments closed on the Sabbath and who contemplate 
pening on that day and induces them to continue their 
nctice of Sabbath observance. In this way upwards 
i fifty eftabliahments have been prevented from Sabbath 
Iteration and the privilege of Sabbath rest retained

By Isaac Even 

1^ the stndent of ChasBidism, who has carefully f ol- 

)wed its development since it. made its appearance in 

evish life, nearly two hundred years a^, one fact 

mis out most prominently: namely, that Chassidism 

a very delicate plant, requiring a particularly favor- 

de soil so that it may strike root and thrive. 

In Podolia, Ukrainia, Poland, certain parts of Bus- 

I, Oalicia and Hungary, the new cult soon found many 

llowers. Western Europe, on the other hand, has re* 

ained immune to this very day. Take, for instance, 

'. case of the Zadik Beb Schmelke, a favorite disciple 

the renowned Reb Baer, who made a persistent at- 

pt to introduce Chassidism in Nikolsburg (Moravia). 

a while he really held sway as a ** Outer Yid," but, 

aately, he was compelled to give it up as a hopeless 

A similar fate overtook the only Chassidic Rabbi 

rmany, Reb Elie of Greidetz. 

m in those countries where Chassidism flourished 

arly two centuries, it is now on the decline. The 

war, raging for the last three years in Galicia and 

, the erstwhile strongholds of the Chassidic faith, 

dermined the dynasties of the famous Zadikim 

n there the new cult is gasping its last. 

-elation of the war to the sudden decline of 

sm is obvious. 

jse who are initiated in the lore of Chassidism 

vt one of the great attributes of the Zadik is 

and seclusion. His person is the embodiment 

)nity and sacredness of the Sabbath. He shows 


Belf'to iis followers only on certain oecasions and 
it care is taken that he shall appear at his verj" besi 
all other times, he remains in absolute seclusion. 
s hifi daily liie becomes a profuund mystery' and bit 
iwers keep on spinning all sorts of fantastic tales 
iiid his mysterious existence. I do not wish to convey 
idea that this seelusiuu is merely a sham. Most of 
Zadikim were really devoted to study and worship 
ing these long, lonely hours. But a public perform- 
! of these functions would not have been quite •) 
iucive to arouse admiration in the eyes of the Chassi- 
, and most of the Zadikim adhered, therefore, to tiie 
leiple of absolute seci-ecy. 

he war made a sudden end to this seclusiou of the | 
ik. Irrespective of his exalted position, he was rud^ j 


1, the fbnnder of Chassidism. He landed on fheee 

38 abomt twenty-five years aga 

le nndertaking was successful in a way ; that is, ere 

the new Zadik's coffers were bulging with money, 
Q him by sorrowing and heartbroken women who 
oed to him, asking for his divine intercession in their 
df. He also found a number of followers among the 
>le. However, he never succeeded in attracting the 

Chassidim. It is possible that at that early period 
iastem European immigration there were too few 

Chassidim in this country to form a permanent f ol* 
ng. Again, an explanation may be found in the fact 

he was not a Zadik in his own right, but merely a 
andson" of a Zadik. His ultimate abdication may 

be ascribed to the hostile attitude of the Yiddish 
8, which persecuted him relentlessly, 
e this as it may, the seed surely fell on a barren soil. 
>r sojourning a few years in this unfriendly environ'^ 
t, Beb Eliezer Chayim renounced his ''holy post" 
left America, to become merely a ''grandson" once 

uring the last twenty years the adherents of the 
ous Chassidic sects came to this country in ever 
easing numbers. Most of them craved for the exal- 
m and joy of the Zadik 's proximity. Many plans 
3 hatched to induce one of the noted Zadikim of the 
world to come to America. The followers of the 
ik of Dzikov (Oalicia) promised an annual income 
ibout ten thousand dollars to Beb Ushel Horvitz, 
of the old Zadik 's sons, if he would consent to come 
jnerica. He refused. As a matter of fact, not one of 


About two years prior to the outbreak c 
sudden change took place. Several Zadikin 
appearance in America almost simultane 
among them was Beb Schmul Abraham Bal 
of the unsuccessful pioneer mentioned abc 
soon foUowed by his intrepid father who, ii 
advanced age, undertook the voyage once 
died here about a year ago.) Next came a 
the famous **Tolner Rebbi,*' Reb Mordecai 
sky, who had been compelled to leave Bussi 
military persecution. Here he is known si 
'*Tolner Bebbi." These Zadikim were folic 
others: Beb Tisrol Hagar of Badantz, a 
Beb Chayiml Kossover and known here as 
witzer Bebbi"; and the most recent arrival, 
Sack, son-in-law to Beb David '1 Kobriner, 
here simply as the "Kobriner Bebbi.'* As y 
are now not less than four **Gute Yidden" i 
In passing, it may be said that all are prosp 

One must be careful, though, not to jum 


Zadikka have barely a score of foUowei^ of the genuine 
CiamaiiD tTpe. The "Toiner Bebbi" (with all due 
■pologies to the other three Zadikim) a considered the 
Bost pKminetit smongBt them, ifwing to hia penanality 
■tid to his iBinoiu ancestry. And even he was eonqwUed 
to 'abandon one of the' moat important traditiont in 
Oktndieconduct, the"Tifih"; thatis, Uie taking of the 
SiUMth meals mrrounded by the Chassidim, which it 
Stnenlly a scene of great enthoaiasm and one of the few 
Mnaioni when the Zadik rereaU himself in all bis glory. 
The reason for this was simply lack of genuine ChaSaidie 
ea?ironment. There is deep significance in the Ghasaidic 
adage which declares that the "Chassidim make the 
Bebbe". The greatest of them would soon lose his power 
md infloence if he were to sit down to table with a 
hctt of indiSerent men given more to the contemplation 
af the dishes set before them than of their leader 's great- 
um and sanctit]'. 

Anh how aboQt the Chassidim t Are there none here 
rto really want a Bebbif 

The question is debatable. Some maintain that true 
Qusddim never existed here. Coming to America means 
(aMntially some sort of compromise with the new sur- 
nondings- True Chassidism, on the other hand, knows 
AO compromise. The real Chassid, therefore, never risks 
ik ton], and stays at home. Those who do not are not 
tile Chaaaidini. 

The "Toluer B«bbi" views the situation from a dif- 
Unat aagla. He maintains that there are here not less 
thaa thirty thousand - Chassidim and as many as one 
koiidred and thirty-three "Klansen". They all have a

modem manners, even in th 
this country they became q 
although their hearts still thr 
are not strong enough to live 
It is true they are ready to si 
still his friends, but they earn 
purely Chassidic conduct, an 
Zadik is insignificant. 

The Chassidim hailing from 
the other hand, have really reti 
life and habits. They maintai 
Klausen" and are still imbued 
the faith. But these Chassidi 
allegiance from one Zadik to ano 
groups remains faithful to its Zi 
to sit at the feet of any '*Rebbi' 
of the original stock.

School Accommodation Inadec 

But what about the 65,000 children wl 
under the influence of religious and moral 
Are they properly accommodated t Is the 
offered to them well organized and systems 
2 and Qraph 2 tell a tale of wretched acc< 
for the bulk of these 65,000 children. Only 
children receive their religious instruction 
sanita.ry buildings; 9,000 children receive tl 
tion in remodeled dwellings; 15,000 child 
their instruction in dark underground vest 


of saloons, and in garreta. About 10,000 children are 
tangfit in tbeir homes, the place of instruction being the 
Uteben, the dining-room, the parlor or one of the bed- 

It is hardly necessary to add anything to complete the 
sordid picture of accommodation for religions instruc- 
tion in this great city of New York. The conditions 
tre in themselves sofScient to arouse the indignation of 
taj self-respecting Jew. But we must remember that 
OUT children also attend the public schools of the city. 
What can our children think of Judaism, if after their 
stay in the modem public school buildings, we offer 
Ibem Jewish classrooms which are badly ventilated and 
poorly lighted, and which are very often not kept clean. 
They are bound to interpret the entire heritage of our 
people in the terms of the physical side of the dass- 
rooffl; for not only young children, but also adult chil- 
dren do that. We must realize also that in view of the 
fact that many of these children are taught after public 
Khool hours, when they are already fatigued, there is 
the risk of infection amidst the unsanitary surroundings 
of many Jewish schools. Many of these children come 
from homes that are well furnished and properly taken 
care of. If the parents would take the trouble to visit 
these classrooms, they might be shocked to find their 
children taught in such schools and under such con- 
ditions. These parents might discover that large spaci- 
ous synagogues which are used only once a week, are 
a luxoiy, when the same synagogues offer their children 
dark unsanitary classrooms for study. 


nenhnn or methoda among those that we do have. For- 
. thennore, regnlar sehool buildings are very expemive. 
The modem daaaroom eoBta between $8,000 and $10,000, 
ud it does not pi^ to erect a achool bailding with less 
than ten or fifteen claserooms. The small school which 
needs cmly two or three classrooms, cannot avail itself 
of Dodeni facilities. 

Under these oonditiona of constant shifting of the 
popnlation, of lack oS a nnif orm corricnlom, and of the 
wtiiw— of modem school bmldingB, what chance does 
1 imalt school have to do good work t Indeed, it has 
no ehsnce I Only laige schools that can have modem 
ueommodation, that can have large numbers of children 
in their lower grades, and that can afford to have a well 
pud principal to sopervise the instruction, can do effeo- 
tire work: 

Fran Table 3 and Graph 3, the reader can see how 
Urge the Jewish schools of this city are. Of the 181 
■diools in which 41^000 Jewish children are tanght, 40 
■eluxds have less than 100 children on their register ; 97 
adiools, from 100 to 300 ; 24 schools, from 300 to 500 ; 13 
■duals, from 500 to 700, and 7 schools have 700 pupils 
ud over. In other words, of the 181 schools, only 44 
■Aooii, those that have more than 300 children, have 
s diance to do fairly good work with a reasonable ez- 
penditnre of money, energy, enthusiasm and love. In 
the smaller sehools, the cost of energy and money far 
fneeds the resnlts. Then, too, let us not forget that 
ne large nomber of children who are taught in the 
holes called Chedarim, do not even have the opportuu- 
i^ whieh a Jewish child has in the smallest of the 


fcehoola. As to private instruction in the homes — ^there 
KhaoB reigns supreme!

The Outlook Hopeful 

It may be that some of the readers will object to tlie 
picture of Jewish education in New York which I have 
dnwn. They will say, as usual, that in the first place, 
it IB not as blaek and dismal as that; and, secondly, that 
ttm if it were so, nu n^an ^k, that we must keep it 
qniet, so as not to diseourage the work which is being 
done now. It is not my purpose to discourage. It is 
merely a question of method. As long as the Jews of 
this community do not understand the actual status of 
Jewish religions education in the city, they .cannot make 
uy further progress. Understanding the problem is 
one-half of its solution ^ and it is here that I wish to 
Miuid a note of optimism. 

I believe that the Jews of this city are beginning to 
QBdetstaod the problem of Jewish education. It is true 
thst the great majority is still indifferent ; that many bo- 
ealled leaders are still busy with petty things. But 
thote are aonie Jews in this city who do appreciate the 
gnvity of the situation, and are lending their support 
to the awakening of this great Jewish community, .While 
it will be impossible, and to my mind undesirable, to 
create in this city a completely centralized system of 
Jewish religious education, a number of coordinating in- 
flooues, tending towards greater efSciency in Jewish 
iaibuetioni &i^ beginning to appear. The principals of 
the larger Jewish schools of this city, organized into the 
Bebrtw Principals' Agsociatum, have for the past seven 


lars been coming together regularly for the purpose df 

msuitation and cooperation. A new generation 4 

wish teachers has sprung up, and they as well tt 

i older Hebrew teachers, have organized the JeunA 

Wackers' Association and the Hebrew Teachers' Associa^^ 

mn, the primary aim of which is to improve the stato^ 

1 the Jewish teachers and to raise the standard oil 

teaching. The Sunday school teachers alw,! 

l-ough the Religious School Union, are struggling for-i 

The Teachers' Institute of this city has been pro'^ 

lessing from year to year, and if properly supported,] 

|ll without doiibt give us in the course of time man/' 

rapetent American Jewish teachers, of whom we are 

I the greatest need. The Jewish parents of this 


roath, the 200,000 Jewish boys and girls between the 
iges of 14 and 21, the citizens of tomorrow — their prob- 
lem is also receivii^ attention, and signs of awatening 
ramg them are already apparent. But what is still 
more encooragii^, is the fact that in the commnoity, a 
Doniber of laymen have banded themselves together, call- 
ing themselves the Board of Jewish School Aid. These 
pnblie-spirited men have pieced themselves to become 
the champions of Jewish education in this city. They 
liave already made one great step forward in this di- 
rection. If the functions of this Board increase and 
iriden, and if the same spirit animates it in the future 
IS it does now, we will, through its aid, redeem the 
Jewish boys and girls of New York for the Jewish

Weekday Suppleineiitar}' Instruction 

I Of Ihe 161 schools there arc 136 in which instruction 

given supplementary to that given in the public 

■ hools, on weekday aftcrnoon.s, on Sundays, and, in 

:, also on Saturdays, Of these schools, 50 are 

murcfiiitionat schools, organized and managed by a con- 

[■epation, as an adjunct of the synagogue; 67 are cam- 

■ganized i 

jjBwma eelrhdus schools 869 

tiw rest in vestries of synagogues and in rented rooms. 
tSee Table 11). The average weekday school holds ses- 
lioDs during 48 weeks of the year, from as few as 3 to 4 
toon per week in some of the congregational weekday 
cfaods, to as many as 30 hours per week in some of the 
Ider Talmud Torahs. The children are usually taught 
1 shifts, the average being from 2 to 3 shifts per day. 
lie average Jewish teacher, therefore, instructs from 
iro to three classes every day, with a total of about 70 
qpils. In the typical weekday school, the number of 
nirs of instruction given to each child varies from 6^ 
ours in the lowest grade to dyi hours in the seventh 
r highest grade. 

The annual cost of instruction ranges from $7.85 per 
lild to over $43.00 per child, with an average per 
ipita cost of approximately $22.00 annually. The in- 
line of the schools is derived from three sources : 30% 
nnes from tuition fees of the pupils ; 20% from prop- 
rty owned by the school, (such as synagogue, room 
ents, etc. ) ; and 50% is derived from the community, 
kktly in the form of membership dues and donations, 
lie task of collecting the income from the last source 
mbarasses considerably the management of the schools, 
lie total sum spent by the Jews of New York upon the 
tAiaj school is approximately $740,000. 
The total teaching staff consists of 615 teachers, of 
hom about 23% are women. The salary of teachers 
mges from $300 to $1,200 per year. The average salary 
$780 annually for 22 hours' work during the week. 
sr teaching hour this compensation is practically as 
w as the lowest salary paid to public school teachers. 


The course of study places the main emphasi: 
the study of the Hebrew langauge and literatu 
extends over five to seven years, giving a total o 
hours of instruction. In the typical school of thi 
35% of the time is allotted to the study of H 
(readiug, conversation, grammar, composition am 
iug) ; 40% of the time is devoted to biblical am 
biblical literature, of which Sl^ goes to the study 
Bible; 10% of the time is given to the teaching 
tory; 12% to the study of prayers, customs anij 
and about 'i% is given to music and other subject! 
curricula vary, however, both in amount of tim 
in the subjects taught. In a few of the oldi-r 1 
Torahs, the center of attention is upon the T(

Sunday School Instruction 

There are in New York City 41 schools in which in- 
stmction is given on Saturdays or Sundays. As dis- 
tinguished from 'the supplementary weekday schools, the 
Sunday schools are unrelated to the public schools, in 
as much as their programs and time of instruction have 
no relation to the public school system. Of these 41 
schools, the great majority, or 37 schools, are conducted 
by congregations;* and the remaining 4 are conducted 
in conjunction with Jewish welfare institutions, or are 
managed by special educational societies. The 41 schools 
give instruction to 7,951 pupils, of whom 55% are girls. 

These schools being adjuncts of regular congregations, 
are supervised by the rabbis. The entire teaching staff 
consists of 346 teachers, more than half of whom (55%) 
are women. In some of these schools the teachers are 
paid, whereas in others they render their services gratis. 
The cost of instruction is about $2.00 per child annually 
in those Sunday schools whose teachers are mainly vol- 
unteers; and from $7.50 to $10.00 per child annually 
in schools with paid teaching staffs. The aggregate sums 
expended upon the Sunday schools annually is approxi- 
mately $50,000. 

The typical Sunday school holds sessions during 34 
weeks of the year, two and a half hours each week on 
Sonday mornings. The central subject of the curricu- 
lum, instead of being language and literature, is history, 
to which 48% of the time is devoted. The Hebrew lan- 
guage receives 30% of the total time of iiistrnction ; and 
religion and ethics about 20%. 

*Some of these schools also conduct weekday classes in Hebrew. 
These are listed in the Register among the weekday schools.

^ far back as the middle of the last century, efforts 
e made by the Jevrs of New York to provide pro- 
ional training for their Jewish teachers. In a sense, 
fnture development of Judaism depends upon the 
»re and equipment of the men and women who are 
ged in Jewish religious instruction. The Jews of 
eity are aware of the immediate need of adequately 
ing their young men and women for this profession. 
1903, special classes were opened by the Jewish Theo- 
al Seminary for the purpose of training teachers 
ewish schools. But these classes were inadequate to 
the growing demand, and six years later, in 19p9, 
Teachers' Institute of the Jewish Theological Serai- 
was organized. The principal of this Institute is 
, M. M. Kaplan. The faculty is composed as 

Prof. Israel Priedlaender — Jewish History. 
Dr. Elias Solomon — ^Bible and Customs. 
Babbi M. Levine — Hebrew and Talmud.. 
Mr. Joseph Braggin — Hebrew. 
Mr. Zevi Scharfstein — Hebrew Literature and 

Methods of Teaching Hebrew. 
Mr. Leo L. Honor — Jewish History and 

Methods of Teaching History. 
Mr. Joshua Neiunann — Bible. 

e Institute offers a three years' training course to 
long men and 73 young women. Since 1912 it has

Tell me how a man spends his leisure time, and I

his quaint proverb would perhaps be even more tell- 
, were we to substitute the word ''community/' for 
word ''man"; for in nothing does a group show its

'essimistic critics of our modem city life have drawn 
omy pictures of the gradual loss of naturalness in the 
reations of men and women of today. Even children, 
y cry» plAJ according to rules and regulations; and, 
:he city dweller does attempt to be spontaneous in 
amusements, he either loses himself in a riotous in- 
duce of superficial pleasures, or, what is worse, 
Dges into excesses which ultimately rob him of his 
dity. In his effort to re-create his body, he loses

That many of thtise dtiprasuiiig truths should be ip- 
plicable to the Jew iii modern city life, and particularlj 
i eity like New York, is simply proof of the fact th»t 
Ithe Jew, too. is in the grip of an industrial life, whidi 
Ion the one hand, offers comparatively little leisure time 
land on the otiier, gives little encouragement for a modw 
Itle and balaneed enjoyment of it. Add to this his uerr 
Jous temperament, bom of centuries of struggle ag&ini 
■fearful odds, and we have a fairly oomplet« explanatia 
:■ lack of many of the (iner cultural and spiritM 
lelements in thi' leisure-time activities of a large par 
|of ilie Jewish populution, such as Ik found in New Yorl 

What are some of these forms of recreation t Whs' 



QttelfiBh purposes — most of what is generous and kind 
in knman nature — are fostered in the privacy of home 
life. It is true with even greater force that home in- 
flnenees form taste in amusements of all kinds. Sham 
fefinementy vulgarity, boocishness and sensuousness in 
private entertainments cannot fail to be reflected in 
public amusements. If festival celebrations in the home, 
veddings, birthday parties, and other family gatherings, 
lack in a genuine spiritual tone and atmosphere (and 
surely no one will hold that, in order to be such, they 
must have an elaborate setting), then it ought not be a 
matter of great surprise if the press is not so refine<l 
in its appeal as it might be, that the theatre shows clear 
signs of decadence, that the cheap dance hall, and the 
sensuous moving picture show, have little difficulty in 
attracting their hundreds of thousands of devotees, and 
that the communal institutions which attempt to offset 
these demoralizing influences upon the youth by offering 
wholesome recreation under proper auspie^, find it prac- 
tically impossible to compete with the irresistible lure 
of the commercialized pleasure-places. A Jewish home 
that has no Jewish music, no Jewish pictures, no Jewish 
interests, no Jewish aspirations, no Jewish enthusiasms, 
is not infrequently a home the emptiness of which is 
fiDed with little more than the hollow pleasures of 

The view that prevailing standards of recreation in 
the Jewish community are rito« too lofty, may easily 
be verified by a careful study'\if the press, the theatre, 
and the purely commercial recreational facilities at the 
eonunand of the masses of Jewish population in New 


jTork City. While the press, as aoch, would hardly l« 

Eonsidered a means of recreation, the Jewish, and pBP 

ftieularly the Yiddish press of this eity, does perforB 

fthis function for the great masses of its readers. Fa 

Ithem the Yiddish daily is a veritable -store-house of intet 

■ectual food. For most of them, it is the only source of iit 

■ormation to which they have access. Not having bed 

idei-s of newspapers in the lands from which thq 

me, and having had practically no secular education 

Ihe information contained in most of these dailies mnif 

ke pre-digested for them, and, if the food is ill-digestec 

prst hy the editor, then it will certainly be ill-digestai 

,- tJie reader. In spite of its faults, the Yiddish press 

I'itli the vast range of topics disi'iissed in its sheets, anc 

vith its half million daily readers in this city, is not onlj 

I great source of intellectual enjoyment to the Jewisli 


the brief i>eriod of renascence in the opening years 
of this century was unfortunately too brief to make a 
lasting impression on either the producers or the public, 
and that today the Yiddish theatre is in a spiritually de- 
crepit condition, much as its financial basis may have 
been improved. We are then confronted with this di- 
lemma: on the one hand, the producers do not scruple 
nuch about the art and morals of their productions, and 
he masses take what is offered them ; on the other hand, 
he masses do not cry out for better art, and therefore 
he producers do not feel constrained to improve their 
rares. ^ 

That even less can be expected in the direction of rais- 
ng standards of recreation from the ordinary dance- 
lall and the cheap moving picture place, is obvious, 
[nartistic, crude, sensuous in their appeal, to the youth 
particularly, as these commercial pleasure-haunts are, 
many of them merit nothing but the deepest condemna- 
tion of the community. 

But mere dissatisfaction with, and even open and 
severe criticism of, existing conditions in the field of re- 
creation in the Jewish community of New York City, 
can hardly be the way of permanent improvement. Who 
is to blame t The just way, one might suppose, to ap- 
portion the blame, would be to say, quite paradoxically : 
everybody is to blame, and nobody is to blame. The 
individual Jew is at fault, because he does not join 
forces with those in the community who see the danger 
diead, and are sincerely working according to their best 
lights to prevent a catastrophe. The oommiuiity as a 
whole is at fault because it goes on its heedless way, 


liorganized, chaotic, quibbling abnut ooD-esseotials 
Ihich should sink into insignificance when compared 
lith the great and serious tasks ahead of the JevB of 

1 city. 
J That there have been public-spirited Jewish men and 
lomen who have thought seriously of the problem o( 
Rcreational facilities, particularly for the youth, ii 
■own by existeuce of the various Y. M. H. A.'s, Y, ff. 
s, settlements and social centers in this city. tV 
I long time the main motive iu organizing these associl-. 
Ions was the desire to offset the bad effects upon young j 
tnple of the ff|piis of recreation described above. Thai I 
l-ganizatioiis provide entertaiuiiieut of all types, from 
■e little "affair'' held by small clubs for the benefit of 
■e members and their friends, to mass entertainments, 
liisicals, dranititie recitals, and pageants for the people 


<tf the young people frequenting them will gradually 
improve t Decidedly yes! Make the recreational work 
in these organizations more Jewish in content and mean- 
ing T Decidedly yes! But doing all these necessary 
things, while going very far towards a solution, will 
Qot have touched the vital issue in the matter. That 
issue is this : Recreation is fundamentally a communal 
problem. It is a communal problem not in the sense 
that the community prescribes the particular forms of 
amusement for each person, or groups of persons (such 
an attitude is so undemocratic and un-American as to 
be condemned as soon as it finds expression), but rather 
in the sense that the community as a whole, must on the 
one hand, safeguard the leisure time of its members, 
and on the other hand, see to it that the forms of re- 
creation, whatever they may be, shall be such that they 
truly re-create in the finest spiritual sense of the term. 
If the Jewish community is to raise the standards of its 
leisure-time activities, whether they be carried on in the 
kome, in the private club, in the theatre, in the dance 
kail or in the social center, each and every member of 
the community must cooperate with the general com- 
ttiunity in its efforts to improve living and working con- 
^litions, so that the masses of the people may have more 
ieisure ; and, furthermore, the Jewish community 'must 
loarshal all its educational forces, the religious school, 
the synagogue, the social center, to develop a desire for 
the finest cultural and spiritual values on the part of 
its youth. Parallel with this, the community must be 
prepared to provide facilities just as soon as the de- 
DMind finds expression. Above all, there must be de- 


veloped a powerful public opinion, which will 
upon all vulgai'ity and sham, wherever it may be 

in the communal life. 

It has been the distinctive feature of the geniiu 
Jew that he encompassed everything in the life 
individual and of the community within the boa 
the moral law. Not even play, the most spontant 
human expressions, was excluded. It was the 
who pleaded: "Art for Art's sake." It was tl 
l>rew who insisted: "Art for Life's sake." As "J 
Art's sake" is a less inchisive, and therefore less 
iial aim, than "Art for Life's sake," so must w( 
the aim of each and every member of the Jewisl 
munity in his pursuit of pleasures, re(;reation 
much for its own sake, but rather recreation foi

Cammihee, Nc^ional Council of Young Men's 
Hebrew and Kindred Aesooiations 

nmg Men's Hebrew Agsociation of today differs 
etely from what was known as the Association 
ars ag0| that it is almost impossible to consider 
.ems of the two types of institutions in connee- 
i each other. At the time of the inception of 
ig Men's Hebrew Association, forty years ago, 
in the minds of the founders was to establish 
irhich was to include young men and young 
rhose interests lay in fields other than those of 
creation. The first Association was a social 
young men and women. The participating 
IS also the gathering body. The activities were 
a rather high grade literary society. The sub- 
bussed in essays or debates were to some extent 
but dealt also with topics of general interest, 
ssarily with religious topics. The membership 
ted. The meetings were held regularly, but no 
Kras made to exert either a neighborhood or com- 
nfluence. The object was to promote sociability 
ie members, and in brief, the club was merely 
ssion of the general tendency of young people 
ize themselves for their general improvement. 
lily an AEBOciation organized along such lines, 


was bound to meet certain difficulties. As the mei 
grew older, their interests became scattered and ti 
traction of their Association club was no loug 

potent as it had been. The defection of the mei 
caused a reduction in the membership. It was di 
to secui-e additions. Those who remained faithful, 
unwilling: to admit into the group new members 
siderably younger than they were. To secure addi' 
members from among those of their age, was alma 
possible. Therefore the Association passed througl 
cessive periods of deterioration and rejuvenation, 
times the affairs of the Association were in such s 
farious condition, that the entire organization wa 
banded for a more or less extended period. It was 
about twenty yoai's ago that it was felt that a 1 
Jlen's Hebrew A.ssoeialiori might have as its fiiT 


taet that, when Mr. Schiff made his gift, he set as one of 
the ocmditiong that the annual expenditure of the As- 
aoeiation, must^be no less than five thousand dollars, 
ind that at the present time, the budget of the 92nd 
Street Yoiing Men's Hebrew Association is almost sixty 
thousand dollars. The small figure set twenty years ago 
was an indication, not of the needs of the institution, 
but rather of the belief, on the part of those most inter- 
ested, in the extent of support that could be expected 
from the general public. 

The Association of today is quite different from the 
social club of forty years ago. Today there is a com- 
petent Board of Directors interested in this particular 
phase of Jewish work and planning the activities of 
their society, so as best to meet the needs as they see them. 
There is a large body of members of the Association 
whose interest is manifested only by their annual sub- 
seriptions for the support of the work. Finally, there 
is flie participating membership itself, which consists 
of three groups: the seniors, the associates and the 
juniors. The grades are based upon the differences in 

Today an Association cannot carry on its activities on 
the basis of the payments made by the members for tlio 
benefits which they enjoy. For example, in the 92nd 
Street Young Men's Hebrew Association, only ten thou- 
sand dollars are contributed by the members toward the 
grogs budget of the Association, although there are 
%300 members. 

In the last five years there has been a growth in the 
mimber of Associations established in Qreater New 


■k. This has been due to two causes, lu the fiprf 
:e, there has been an ever stronger desire on Ibe 
t of young men and young women to organize them- 
es into associations, and in the second place, the 
^uncil of Young Men's Hebrew and Kindred Associa- 
:, through its metropolitan league, has furthered the 
[nation of these institutions. 

! first great difficulty that lies in the way of M 
■tension of this kind of work, is the apathy on the part 
"I the general public towards preventive institntioDi-

]f (wminrtnd work, which will enable them to rmder 
WTue to the eonunniiity. The weakening of the religi' 
01 qiirit of oqr yonng peopki is due not so mueh to 
or American environment, or the desire to become 
Bparated from the Jewish faith, as it is to the fact 
bit the commonity does not offer ayennes of expression 
vjmsDg people, thzongh which th^ may give more or 
m adequate. lUtteranee to the desire to serve, and the 
mat to become, throui^ action, more closed afSliated 
ifii the vital aspects of their reUgion. If such avennes 
I ezpressum are not provided, there must come an in- 
stable falling away from Judaism. The Jewish con- 
wrasness will be deprived of its proper mode of ex- 
reasion and mnst necessarily become weakened. 
The function of the Association as a preventive insti- 
ation is not restricted solely to the affording of an op- 
ortimity of expression of the spirit of service, and of 
ke Jewish consciousness ; the Affiociation has shown it- 
df to be of great value in meeting the problem of 
dinquency. Those who have been interested in the 
beetion. of our Associations^ have voiced with pride, 
ke fact that few, if *any, of the members of the Associa- 
ioDs have ever found their way into courts under 
httges. This, of course, may be due to the fact that 
16 Association does not attract the wayward boy or girl, 
Bd therefore the percentage of delinquency in this case 
not indicative of the real situation. On the other hand, 
must be remembered that the Association does not 
nit its membership on the basis of character recom- 
endations, and that therefore, it is impossible to esti- 


tte how many of those who become members of tt* 
sociations, might have lapsed, had the influence of 
3 institution not been exerted upon them, 

i eommuiiity must be educated to the point, there- 
Ire, of realiziug how important preventive work is, and 
V necessary it is for an institution to have suoh varied 
ivities as will permit fullest expression on the part 
I its members. An Association which is enabled to do , 
s type of work, must be properly housed. It is a mi*- 1 
: to build a large Association building. Great num- ' 
|rs cannot be treated in the intimate way, that thej 
eil of the problem demands. The Young Womeii'i ■ 
I'brew Assoeiation and the Young Men's Hebrew As- ■ 
ion of Manhattan, represent probably the maii- 
size of institution that should be directed by one

1 Association. It is important that the Association 
be expressive, not of the theories of those who are 
ested in it, but rather of the community in which 
located. The proper Association can be organized 
when a community survey has been made, and the 


needs of the commanity have been charted. In . 
tions, it will be found that the Association must < 
ample facilities for recreation, a gymnasium, swi 
pool, ete. It will be found that if the Associatio 
win the confidence of the neighborhood, provisioJ 
be made for religious services. The Friday uight 
or forum has become increasingly popular in all A 
tions. In a number of our buildings, groups of 
men and young women flock to the buildings on '. 
evening, and after participating in a brief servi 
listening to a short sermon, discuss with the speak 
subject matter of the address. The Association, wl 
it is located, will moreover, in all probability, i 
facilities for educational work and several clubs,

16 pioneer organization of its kind, the T. M. H. A. of 
liattan has been from the time of its organization, an 
riment station, so to speak, for Y. M. H. A. work in this 
try. In sise of its membership and in equipment, the 
tation is still the leading organization of its type. 
te in the earlier stages of its history the purely recrea- 
il and cultural phases of T. M. H. A. work were em- 
ized, later years have seen a gradual shifting of inter- 
tK>th on the part of the administrators, and on the part 
tie membership, towards social activities in a more 
iflcally Jewish setting, and of more definite Jewish 
Ication. The aim of the organization is "to develop 
ag young Jewish men, the Jewish consciousness as a 
IS to the highest type of spiritual life." To this end, 
f side of the character of the Jewish boy and young 
is appealed to. The natural interest in physical exer- 
is fostered by offering opportunities for wholesome 
tics in a completely equipped gymnasium and swim- 
pool, and by conducting during the summer "Surprise 
Lake," at Cold Spring, New York, one of the largest 
lost favorably situated vacation camps in this country, 
ocial activities conducted in the building include: 
and young men's clubs, emphasizing Jewish literary 
entertainments and holiday celebrations; lectures and 
on Jewish, civic, and vocational topics; group work 
tc, a choral society, an orchestra, an opera company, 
s, recitals. During the summer months games and 
Inments are conducted on the roof garden.

to the speaking of Hebrew. While these clubs

Hebrew was looked upon as a marveL Today

ne very popnlar and the visitors were often as many 
ihree hundred strong. Noted writers and prominent 
tea wonid, from time to time, be invited to address 
M gatheringa. 

Phe society also gave subsidies to several Hebrew pub- 
Ktions and, from time to time, made an attempt to 
dish iMtmphlets and|ionmals in Hebrew. The be- 
nings of an extensive library were made. Lack of

policy of subsidizing Hebrew literature the world

ooUng bad: at the Hefaraio movement for the last 
dtj yeatVy onto muat come to the eoneltuion that its 
ievements were rather intensive than extensive. 
mty years ago, hardly anyone on this side of the 
antie thonght of using Hebrew as a spoken tongue. 
I few meagre publieations that api>eared here had 
dly any literary value. The number of their readers 
'er exceeded several hundred. There were hardly 
r subscribers to the Hebrew publications of the old 
rid. The most prominent monthly, the ''Hashiloach/' 
1 about twenty subscribers in New York City. As to 

demand for modem Hebrew books, there was vir- 
Uy none. 

^oday. New York has several thousand people whose 
g;uage of conversation is Hebrew, either steadily or 
srmittently. Two weeklies, the "Hatoren" and the 
aibriy" as well as a juvenile monthly, the ''Shach- 
li," are being published. Collectively they have al- 
it eight thousand subscribers. Societies for the pub- 
tion of Hebrew books are springing up. Moreover, 

inauguration of the natural method, that is, the 
ig of Hebrew as the language of instruction in many 
irew schools and Talmud Torahs, is essentially a 
It asset for the revivifying of the ''holy tongue.'' 
out ten lectures in Hebrew are given in New York 
y every week. The creation of a Hebrew school of 
isodary instruction for boys and girls and the Jewish 
Mdiers' Institute may also be looked upon as a great 

Hebrew is not the daily language of 
to be hoped that the renewal of Jewis 
will strengthen the hands of the Hebi 
and make their influence greater .an< 
the Jewish life of America.

Viddkh and Yiddish literature — they are like a mir< 
^'e of. Jewish history, like a stroke of our destiny. They 
^€re bom in exile, like the grass that sprouts among 
^ cobble-stones of the million-footed city pavement, 
"^ey blossomed and flourished in the farthest comers 
of the g^obe, wherever the Diaspora has scattered us, 
^U8 presenting the most indelible sign of our tenacity. 
'They are our shield and bulwark in days of sequestra- 
tion and fading traditions. Scattered all over the face 
of the earth, would we survive without a distinct living

^ill retain our national physiognomy. And thus it hap-

a tilie midst of our endless divisions and schisms we are

Although the living tonj» 
nation, yet, because of its ] 
with the sacred lan«rufl?o ( 


^ohmsed the tongue. It grew ap as the language of 
tbe most hardy and most loyal children of IsraeL It grew 
op as the most fertile bed of Jewish tradition,, of his- 
torical allusions and suggestions. Yiddish is the lan- 
guage of Jewish folk-lore: of the riddles, the endless 
proverbs, the popular anecdotes and witticisms, of the 
simple and heartfelt tales of the lowly : of the numerous, 
bigUy emotional and, at times, charmingly pretty folk- 

A^ early as the fourteenth century we find Yiddish 
translations of the Hebrew prayer-books and hymn books. 
Then there appeared translations and . paraphrases of 
the Old Testament, collections of Talmudical legends, 
parables and maxims, which were subsequently supple- 
mented by a number of ethical and homiletic books, 
niostly translated from the Hebrew, yet, not too rarely 
originally composed in the language of the people. In 
the eourse of time there also appeared the popular tale, 
iQostly to impart some moral or religious lesson, and not 
iiifrequently written in the same spirit, and partly with 
the same effectiveness, with which Protestant Do Foe 
^rote his Robinson Crusoe. 

The last mentioned tales were more or less original 
productions independent of Hebrew, yet these were not, 
«ven in far bygone days, the only original creations in 
Yiddish. Hundreds of years before our age, Yiddish 
gave rise to two distinct species of literature, of which 
one has no counterpart either in Hebrew or in any other 
literature, and the other has some parallel in the early 
beginnings of the European drama. The first are the 
Teekinotkj fervent and ebullient prayers of an extern- 


>raneouH nature, composed for all sorts of synagogicA 
id famiiy occasions, and exclusively meant to suit tbi 
■eds and the sad lot of the Jewish wife and mother, 
he second species are the Purim and mystery plajs, 

former composed in a rather burlesque vein and some- 
hat loose style and betraying a slight influence of 

■ilar German farces, the latter being dramatic ra- 
tals of the deeds and legends of patriarchs and heroes 

old. Unlike most old Hebrew dramas many of thex 
ere actually played on the Feast of Purim and on 
,her occasions, thus creating a distant background to 
le quite imposing Yiddish drama of today. 

It should likewise be mentioned, that as a profui^ 
nguage, Yiddish was also tolerated to be used as » 
;bicle for the myths and stories of contemporsrv 
urope. Thus, we find in it, centuries ago, renderings of 




tioQty travden' taleB, witticisms and deep Jewish yearn- 
ings for Palestine and glowing patriotic effusions. 

In the coarse of centuries, then, by these multifarious 
ways^ the new tongue was welded, enriched, and refined, 
until it became the most intimate and thorough lan- 
guage of the Jewish people, its ideal means of expression. 
Tiddish most truly reflects the Jewish mind and soul; 
the originality of the Jewish brain, the pathos, the 
Qumghtfulness, the sadness, the other-wordliness of the 
Jewish character, the keenness, the penetrating sagacity, 
the humor, the irony of the Jewish intellect, the lustre 
of Jewish imagination, the delicacy and depth of Jewish 
^eUng, the varied richness and worldly wisdom of Jew- 
ish observation. 

When, therefore, in the nineteenth century Jewish 
^ters began to employ Yiddish for secular and modern 
Uterary purposes, they found it a most apt, most facile 
^ rich, fresh and succulent, and above all, a most inti- 
mate means of Jewish expression. It was then that Yid- 
^ literature in the more restricted sense of the word 
^[an to flourish. Thus, early in the nineteenth century 
^ already meet with Yiddish didactic bards and popu- 
W gingers, dramatists, story-tellers, essayists, and the 
^ Somewhat later talented novelists and poets ap- 
pear, and as early as the sixties Yiddish literature as- 
sumed quite a magnificent appearance. It is, then, that 
Afaramowitz, the but now deceased Mendele Mocher 
Sephorim, a truly Jewish genius of the highest magni- 
^e, writes his plays, his novels and most pathetic and 
poignant satires. About a decade later Spector begins 
W write his graceful and most sympathetic stories and 


Jvels. Then, also came the poet Froog, with his 8wee^ 

I pensive, graceful, yet highly emotional lyrics, finely 

fnantie epics and sadly bitter satires. Then appeared 

J great and most ingenious humorist Rabinowitz, the 

; Sholcm Aleiehcm, wbo at various times has been 

tnpared to the Russian Gogol, the English Dictana, 

1 the American Mark Twain, but who, most corrMtlj 

1 most definitely, is the great humoroiis explorer and 

jrtrayer of Jewish life, of Jewish men, women and chil- 

fcn of all classes, ages and regions, and who draws h* 

ftxhaustible fountains of Jewish pathos and humor from 

~E very depths of Jewish thought and feeling, from his

as at the American Talmud Torah, at the gymna-

inre is the better for it all. Take Ibsen, for in-

Tiddish and Yiddish literature have been the great 

IxNm of Jewish history to the scattered tribes of Israel. 

To the Jews of America they have been like the rainbow 

j& the shy, a covenant against the deluge of assimila- 

tbn. One is almost tempted to see in them the finger 

of Jewish destiny. For have not the Yiddish press and 

literature been, inadvertently, planted in this new land 

of our Gk)luth by our very Socialists and Anarchists of 

thirty years ago, who then disclaimed anything Jewish

It was Yiddish that kept the Jew alive in the hearts of

Jewish tradition flowing in the veins of the souls of the 
JiBwkli masses in the New World. And thus it came to

' ''The Asmonean," and that lasted ten years. 
Asmonean" was devoted to the literary, religious 
olitical interests of the Jews in America, and so 

was the interest it aroused, that when ''The As- 
n" itself began to sink, "The Jewish Messenger" 
red. * ' The Jewish Messenger ' ' enjoyed a long life,

American Hebrew." It represented the interests

Era" which ran to 1877, and the "Jewish Advc

fhB first Yiddish paper in New York and in America 

was "Die Jiidisehe Post," published and edited in 1872 

^ ^6D]y Qershuni. The enterprise was not a success, 

end the editor, who was a typesetter and newBpai>er 

^der, had to give it up very quickly. The immigra- 

titm from Russia, which later was responsible for the 

phenomenal growth of the Yiddish Press in America, 

hid not as yet assumed the tremendous proportions 

which it attained in the early eighties, but even the 

thin trail of Yiddish-«rpeaking immigrants in America 

had created the need for printing information of what 

was going on in the Jewish world. Benefiting , from 

fluineed, Kasriel Zwi Sarasohn, who was a good business 

•ID, began publishing the Yiddish weekly, *'Die New 

Torker Jfidische Zeitung" in 1872. This first venture 

: ^ Sarasohn !s was not very successful, chiefly because 

«f the language used in the paper, a mixture of German 

and Yiddish, which could not possibly appeal to the Bus- 

dm Jew. But Sarasohn was too far-sighted to abandon 

tte idea of publishing a Yiddish newspaper because this 

ink attempt of his was a failure. Two years after ht

Jews of New York City was reflected not only through 
the existing publications, but also through the addition 
of new ones. In 1905, Louis E. Miller, formerly associ- 
ated with the "Forward," organized the ''Daily War- 
belt," the first national radical newspaper, of which 
newspaper he continued as editor until 1914. This daily 
was in constant combat with the ''Forward" with which 
it competed for the Socialist circulation. 

Three noteworthy attempts to establish new Yiddish 
dailies in New York City, failed. The first attempt 
was that of the "Yiddische Welt," organized in 
1902 by a group of German Jews for the purpose of 
Americanizing the Jewish masses. The newspaper lasted 
two years and was edited by Joseph Jacobs, and then by 
Jacob de Haas, with the assistance of the Rev. Z. Mas- 
liansky. The "Yiddische Welt" managed to attract a 
considerable amount of Jewish talent, and was on the 
way to becoming very popular when dissensions broke 
out among the members of the managing board, and the 
newspaper had to be discontinued. The second attempt 
was made by the Jewish anarchists of New York City in 
1906 when they started their daily * * The Abend Zeitung. * * 
The newspaper, however, did not live longer than three 
months. The last effort at Yiddish daily journalism was 
made in 1914 by Louis E. Miller, who published "Der 
Pfihrer." The paper was strongly pro-Russian, and 
80 strong was the opposition to it on the part of the 
Jewish masses, that it had to be discontinued before the 
end of ttiree months. The last Yiddish daily to be estab- 
lished was the **Day." It was orpranized in November,

I Looking back on the history of the Yiddish as well 

: as of the other divisions of the Jewish press in New York 
i Ci^, one cannot help being struck by the closeness with 
which it runs parallel to the entire course of Jewish 
development in New York City. It would seem as if 
every, change in the complexion of New York Jewry 
would register itself in the Jewish press almost auto- 
Biatically. For decades the Jewish press carried on a 
precarious existence. So did American Judaism. Then 
with the rising tide of immigration, first from (Germany, 
then from Russia, there is a corresponding rise in the 
number of Jewish periodicals. But simultaneously with 
this rise there is an increase in the discordant voices in 
the Jewish press. The Jewish publications instead of 
reflecting the entire Jewish life in New York City, re- 
flect only that particular comer of Jewish life nearest 

the various elements composing the 
had time to fuse in the Melting Pot 
munity of New York City. Since 1 
becomes manifest in the Jewish pres 
— ^it is a centripetal instead of a c( 
There is a foreshadowing of the conu 
and a groping after a communal | 
nothing other than the fluctuations 
istering themselves in the Yiddish 
hammer blows of the Russian pogror 
the constant rapidly increasing pre

'"^ A^.^i,^ Tnwi'tjh nress reflects 


ing in BnglMi in New York City, of which three are 
weeklies and two monthlies. The rest, appearing from 
time to time, are of little more than of recording im- 
portance. The EngUah-Jewish preas is, in the second 
place, unlike the Yiddish press, more temperate in char- 
Mter anct with' the exception of, the American Jewish 
Cbonide, which in more ways than one closely resembles 
tte Yiddish pablications, is not given over to projMigan- 
& Third, in its reactions to Jewish life, the Bnglish- 
Jewiih press manifests a dipasaionate and ratiodnative 
intenst, that compares interestingly with the emotional 
ittttode of the Yiddish press. Fonrth, though its infln- 
cnee extends only to the fringes of the Jewish population, 
yet limited as its reading circle is, it does happen to reach 
ttoie who are most influential in Jewish affairs, so that 
I die actual influence of the English-Jewish press is en- 
' tirely out of proportion to its circulation, which does not 
tieeed 15,000 in New York City. Fifth, the English- 
Jewidi press, chiefly because it is issued for the benefit 
«f a reading public which economically and socially pre- 
sents very little variation, lacks that variety which is 
dbe qriee of the Yiddish press. Finally, it lacks original- 
ity and Jewish creative ability and has to rely intellec- 
toally to a very large extent on the Yiddish press. All 
thtt makes the English-Jewish press far less fascinating 
than i>eriiaps it should be. The future may belong to 
the Jewish preas in English, but its present is certainly 
flnr from glorious.

(a.) Hebrew 

The Hebrew presa in Nev York shares tliese 
features with the English press :— First, it 
not minister solely to the intellectual needs ol 
readers, who get most of their information from ( 
sources ; and, second, it reaches only a small fringe o: 
Jewish population. But its close resemblance to 
English press does the Hebrew press little good, fo 
the one hand it is regarded by its readers as a soi 
luxury, some of them looking upon the purchase 
Hebrew periodical chiefly as a manner of paying tri 
to their renascent Jewish sentiments, and on the c 
hand the fringe of the Jewish population to which 
Hebrew press eaters, happens to be the least influe;

TlM 20,000 Orintal Jews in New York Cily maintain 
two weddj papers: '^La Ameriea" and ''La Bos del 
Pueblo" (The Ydee of the People), both written in 
Jndeo-Spanidi wiUi Hebrew eharaeter& But the'Jew- 
■h press in Jndeo-Spanish or Ladino is even more 
Mr ntnftted than the Hebrew press. From the 
iffitariali of ''La America" it is rather difSenlt to deeide 
idiit pdiegr H porsnes, bat ''La Bos del Pueblo" is pro- 
konuedlj soeialistio. Two other periodicals in Jadeo- 
Spoiidi, "La Benasansia," a Zicmist sheet, and "El 
drtistdi Amerikano," a hnmorons paper, api>ear very 
nqgidailj. For one reason or another, the Jadeo- 
Spsnish press has failed to get a grip on the Oriental 
ramranity. AU the four papers combined have a eir- 
odstimi not ezoeeding 1,500, which is pretty low con- 
odering the sise of the Oriental community in New York 
^. The limited eireulation of the Ladino press may 
erh^is be explained l^ the fact that the Oriental com- 
miity does not form a unit even linguistically, some 
iental Jews speaking Arabic, some Greek, and the rest 
ler languages, while not all of them understand

'he Jewish press in German was never strong in 
' York City, but until America's declaration of 
with Germany, the "Orden's Echo," the monthly 
1 of the Independent Order of True Sisters, 
continued to appear. The war between the 
d States and Germany, however, induced the Inde- 
nt Order of True Sisters to change the language 
3rgan from German to English, thus wiping out at 
*oke the entire German-Jewish press in New York.

copies are sold in New York City daily. On the aasump- 
tion that a person buys two papers a day, divide this 
Bomber by 2 and we get 154,309 people who buy Yid-

and we get a total of 462,937 as the number of Jews of

wMdL Ab an instmment for the Americanisation of 
tba Tnnnca of Jewiah immigrants settled on thd East 
ffidfl^ the Yiddish press has been invaluable. Assuming 
it the TOry beginning an American charaeter, the Yid- 
diih newspapers have instilled in their multitude of 
iMden the spirit of American life, making possible the 
ntdligent oitiwnship and loyal American sentiment 
Amnd on the East Side. The great usefulness of the 
Tiddidi press is demonstrated also in the conscientious 
ngOanee over the welfare of the community and in its 
lostering and encouraging of Jewish institutions which 
eirry on the charitable and educational work of the 
Jewish community. In addition, the Yiddish press, by 
[ serving for so many years as a common channel for in- 
s fonnation and education of the large and heterogeneous 
: Jewish masses of New York City, created that indis- 
pensable modicum of communal apperception without 
which no communal activity would be possible. If we 
add to this the fact that the Jewish newspapers have 
goided the Jewish masses to an understanding and ap- 
preciation of modem literary forms, we have the out- 
standing features of the character of the Yiddish press. 
It should be remarked, however, that this exercise of 
power is not unattended by certain abuses. But the 
Jatter are almost unavoidable when power is wielded as 
oranipotently as it is in the Yiddish press. The Yiddish 
press has not always been able to resist successfully the 
temptation to allure its readers with cheap stories of 
f's0x" interest, and its attitude towards Jewish institu- 
and movements as well as prominent i>ersonalities

Economic Agencies 





By Paul Abelbon 
Director, Bureau of Industry 

The Jew in industrial life in this city presents a dis- 
tinct and separate problem. The problem is due largely 
if not exclusively to the fact that the overwhelming 
majority of the Jewish employers and workers in this 
city belong to the first generation of immigrants, and 
these Jewish employers and Jewish workers find them- 
selves confronted with a number of new and difBcnlt 

The scope of occupational endeavor in small com- 
munities in Eastern Europe was necessarily limited, and 
partook more of the nature of the economic life of the 
mediaeval town. Here in the metropolis, trades and oc- 
cupations are national in scope, and the field of com- 
petition and the strain of changing conditions is a 
thousand fold greater. Industries in which Jews pre- 
dominate in New York City are of but recent develop- 
ment. Many such trades employing tens of thousands 
of workers, with hundreds of establishments, were actu- 
ally not in existence ten or fifteen years ago. There 
are no definitely established standards of methods or 
of technique. These standards are gradually being 
evolved and developed. Jewish occupations are inter- 
related and form one group of the needle industry. 

Jewish trades are, moreover, highly seasonal in their 
character". The workers in these trades, many of them 

have to be managed and organized 
force, which has to acquire the req 
hazard manner, without planned 
education. A resultant over-suppl; 
trades and a lack of supply of labo 
acteristie phenomenon of this com 
size of the city, the extent of the 
number of workers and employers 
but impossible to organize and co* 
ment market with adequate empk 
manding the confidence of employe] 

The chaotic condition of the nee 
is accompanied by very unsatisf act 
employers and employees. The ap] 
to strikes aud lockouts is a great 
carries with it untold distress and i 
hatred, hostility and class-warfare, 
thing else tends to destroy the 
harmony among the Jews' of the cit 

Of necessity, individual trades 
able to cope with the economic ma 
ficult problems which this situatioi 
enflrineerincr of a hi^^hor order can 


deavor to deal with one or the other of the difficulties 
that confront the Jews of New York, whose rootrcauses 
can be traced to the industrial problems of the Jew. But 
only by interrelated study and effort can anything con- 
atructiye be deneloped and carried out. 

These efforts must be directed along four distinct 

1. Jewish communal effort must devote itself to the 
task of securing all the saliqnt facts bearing on 
the subject, and of interpreting their vital signi- 

2. The employment problem must be faced through 
the creation of employment bureaus. 

3. Attention must be given to the problem of voca- 
tional guidance and training of the Jewish boys 
and girls, as well as of adult immigrants. The 
industries in which Jews are engaged will be 
dried up at their source with the cessation of 
immigration from Bussia, which is inevitable in 
the changed world conditions at the end of the 

4. The continual strife between employer and em- 
ployee must be reduced to a minimum. Sane and 
f rational methods must be evolved, and industrial 

peace fostered and supported by the combined 
intelligence, moral force and influence of the 
Jewish community as a whole. 

What is the promise of the future? Those who are 

^ in daily contact with the difficulties and perplexities of 

the situation are often discouraged by the outlook. 

There is, however, no reason for despondency. If one 


iidies objectively the course of Jewish industrial I 
luring: the past two deeades, he must inevitably be i 
Ireseed with the sure signs of improvement and of tl 
levelopmeiit of a sense of communal responsibility. ' 
Tillective conscience of groups, whethef of employers U

bdeavors that are being made to meet the group needi

I Out of it all is sure to come a realization of the need 



By Joseph Gedalecia 

The Jewish unemployment problem is specific and 
unique not because we artificially isolate the question, 
but because our people present definite and unique char- 
acteristics, rooted in inherited historical and economic 
factors. Moreover, the labor situation in the metropolis 
is not related ; with the result that the competition for 
jobs reaches abnormal proportions. 

If the above considerations apply correctly to the 
eflScient Jewish worker, with how much greater force 
do they apply to the semi-eflBcient laborer, whose handi 
cap is serious enough to bar him from the best jobs, but 
not serious enough' to render him economically useless 
To make use of whatever ability the sub-eflBcient worker 
may have, by finding the right kind of jobs for him, and 
to educate employers to a more social concept of the 
handicapped types (the schlemiel, the neurotic, the help- 
less idealist, the mechanic -whose eflBciency is lower than 
the standard of his trade), the miscellaneous group of 
men whose view of life has been warped by unfavor- 
able circumstances, is one of the most pressing problems 
confronting the Jewish Community. 

The bulk of the Jewish workers are immigrants. A 
skilled mechanic on his arrival here finds that he has to 
learn the language, join the union where there is one 
in his trade, and take his chance of procuring employ- 

iiurope. ijiven il a capable and 
he finds the opportunities for em:

To meet this situation, the resul 
omic conditions, there exist in tl 
employment agencies which may

Advantage of to their fullest extent. Lack of co-ordina- 
tioii between these employment agencies necessitates the 
solicitation for vacancies of the same employers by sev- 
eral of them at the same time. Such duplication of 
work and harassing of the employers do upt tend to 
convert them, but rather engender antagronism to the em- 
ployment bureaus. The employment agencies in their 
treatment of the problem of employment are guided by 
individual prejudice and by their misiiifonnatiou. If 
they would pool their knowledge, resources and ma- 
chinery and approach the problem from a communal 
viewpoint, better results could be attained. Therefore, 
the most elementary need in order to improve their serv- 
ices to the community is to divide the territories so as 
to locate properly agencies and eliminate (Mnifusion. in 
order that a certain type of applicant for employment 
i^iding in one Borough may not have to apply for a 
job in a different Borough. This would also result in

The lack of trained workers understanding the un- 
employment situation and the cliaracteristics of Jewish 
workers, is a serious handioa}), as the efficient handlinjr 
of the problem requires sympathetic treatment of the 
applicants and business knowledge in dealing with the 
employers. A clearing house for employment agencies 
to act as a central bureau for information for applicants 
and for separate agencies is necessary. The Employ- 
ment Bureau of the Jewish Commnnity was the pioneer 
in suggesting such a clearinjr house. This su^^prestion

I'fSiJ "'"IK 


By reason of its long career and the very excellent 
reoord of its gradnates, it may be said to have eminently 
attained that object. 

The course is three years in length, and the pupils 

are selected with care. They must be about 13 years of 

age, and possess a general education equivalent to that 

given in the 6th year of the elementary public schools. 

: Tnition is free. 

Oar Jewish youth are not by hereditary exi>erience 
h ^t to choose a trade as a vocation, so the first two 
^. jfttrs of the course are devoted to instruction in those 
t lobjects best fitted to develop a taste for a trade, and 
■^ die last year to intensive instruction to fit the pupil 
directly for that trade. 
The work of this school is therefore both prevoca- 
' tional and vocational in character, and, as such, a model 
■ if what a school should be for the purpose intended. 

Hebrew Technical Institute for Girls 

rhe purpose of this school is primarily to equip Jewish 
to become a better factor in the home, and with 
^flttt in view the pupils are given suitable mental, ethical 
r and physical instruction in connection with the special 
lilndning for a vocation. 

^ The coarse is eighteen months in length, and in ad- 
^ttitting pupils the aim is to select those who are in 
\ greatest financial need, and best fitted to derive benefit 
^from the work they are to undertake at the school.

The parpose of this school is, by a short course of 
vocational training, to fit a certain class of our Jewish 
young men to obtain employment in one of the mechani- 
eal trades. 

These young men, many of them recent immigrants 
deficient in education, have left school at an early age 
and found employment in unskilled occupations, at low 
wages and with little chance for advancement. They are 
from necessity wage-earners, and cannot afford to enter 
schools having long courses of instruction, but can sacri- 
fice a short wage-earning period if by so doing they can 
> aecnre the necessary preparation to give them a better 
\ rtart in life. 

I To meet the needs of this class the school offers oy^-

E thousand graduates only confirms this fact.

cation of several vocational schools as part of the city's

As a training school in the mechanical trades for boys 
from 14 to 17 years of age, the Hebrew Technical Institute 
combines the features of a trade school, a manual training 
lehool, and a polytechnic institute, without belonging dis- 
thictty to any one of these types of educational institutions. 
In order to insure for its students a general academic and 
manual training, indispensable for progress in mechanical 
parsuits, applicants for admission are expected to be public 
•ehool graduates, or td have obtained an equivalent education. 
The course of study in the Institute covers a period of three 
years. During the first two years, instruction is given in 
fondamental subjects, such as English Language and Liter- 
tture, History, Industrial Geography, Map Drawing, Mathe- 
matics, Applied Science and Mechanical and Free Hand 
Drawing. In the third year, the student specializes in one 
of the following subjects: Machine Working, Instrument 
Making, Pattern Making, Wood Carving, Electrical Con- 
■tructlon Work, Mechanical, Architectural or Free Hand 

To give the students the opportunity to observe actual 
working conditions in the various mechanical trades, inspec- 
tion trips are organized once a month, under the guidance of 
a competent instructor, to factories, foundries, machine 
shops, electrical works, engineering works, and drafting 
rooms. For the purpose of studying industrial establish- 
ments outside of New York City, summer walking trips are 
made by small groups of students, with an instructor and 
special guide, to factories, steel works and mines. The 
whole curriculum is designed to train students to become 
altimately foremen, superintendents, engineers and propri- 

There are several features of the work that render the 
Institute unique in the educational field. A hot luncheon is 
served to the boys at a nominal cost of twenty cents a week. 
As this constitutes the principal meal for many of the boys. 
Its value can hardly be overstated. Then, too, as the major- 
ity of the pupils come from the crowded tenement districts,

sr, to provide a broad cultural background, in addition 
a specific training, all students are taught history, litera- 
re, physiology, choral music, social ethics, swimming, 
mnastics, cooking and laundering. 

A number of special features characteristic of a well- 
[Qipped social center, distinguish the institution from an 
dinary trade or technical school. The school maintains an 
aployment bureau. In Jant^^ry, 1916, 2,175 graduates of 
le school were earning an aggregate of $1,374,036 per 
mum, an average of $50 to $52 per month each. The 
hool also has an auditorium seating over 400 persons, a 
brary, a gymnasium, a swimming pool and a well-equipped 
K>f garden. The pupils are given milk and cake at 10.15 
t the forenoon, and again at noon to supplement the lunch

iipils meets every Saturday afternoon. 
There are over 600 pupils In the school. The institution

The Baron de Hirsch Trade School was organized to meet 
Bpeclflc need in trade education, namely, to provide a 
trough course of training in the rudiments of the skilled 
trades, within a comparatively brief period of time, to 
Mse young men who, because of financial disability or lack 
broad educational equipment, cannot undergo an elabor- 
I technical course of training.

generally conceded that poverty and its attend- 
leries, while not entirely curable, are to a large 
preventible. The really deserving poor, if ren- 
)rompt and judicious relief without the stigma 
ity, are eventually restored to the ranks of sdf- 
ing, self-respecting members of the community, 
ct this result is the purpose of the Free Loan 
8. It is justly claimed that the work of these 
8 has been of great value and far reaching im- 
e in the cause of preventive and constructive re- 
dered to the deserving poor. 
3 do not rob the poor man of his self-respect ; he 
»t feel degraded in receiving this form of help, 
he banks do for the rich and middle classes, a 
oan Society does for the small tradesman and 
ic. It relieves borrowers of great inconvenience 
vation, prevents their falling victims to ravaging 
irkSy and this is done without elaborate formal- 
unnecessary delays and with a courtesy that is 
sated in prompt and scrupulous repayment. 
3lde8t existing Free Loan Society in New York 
nd, as far as is known in the United States of 
i, was organized in 1892 and is only twenty-five

*milath Chasodim societies in every Jewish com- 
in Europe. Though similar in purpose, loaning

e achievements of the Free Loan Societies cannot 
fill one with enthusiasm for the cause. From the 
grant who needs a footing in this new world to the 
led merchant who has to be tided over some dif - 
y in meeting obligations, all are relieved from em- 
issment and humiliation, not in a spirit of pauper- 
tior as objects of charity, but with courteous treat- 
and genuine desire to keep alive self-reliance, self- 
ct and independence. No better method has yet 
evolved to solve so practically the great problem of

I ^P to about a decade ago trade unionism among the 
: Jewish worken was in its incipient stage. The United 
Hebrew Trades, which is now preparing to celebrate its 
thirtieth anniversary with an imposing membership of 
230,000, was for a number of years suffering from the 
^&me lack of stability which was characteristic of its 
^oiuitituent organizations. 

Prior to 1910, the Jew as a striker, the Jew as a 
limrtyr on the picket line had become famous in labor 
circles as well as in special treatises of trained investiga- 
Uxn. The Jew as a trade unionist, as one of a well dis- 
tiplined bona-fide organization, as a mere dues-paying 
tuember, was considered almost an impossibility, be- 
cause of the strong individualistic peculiarities which 
^re attributed to him. This distinction of the Jewish 
Worker has now completely faded away. The Intema- 
ixmal liadies' Garment Workers' Union, an organization 
Consisting of 140,000 members of whom fully 80% are 
Tews, is now in the foremost ranks of American trade 
inionism, being the third largest International of the 
Lmerican Federation of Labor. The Amalgamated 
Nothing Workers of America, which came into exist- 
Eiee only about three years ago, enjoys the admiration 
sd loyalty of tens of thousands of Jewish working men 
id women in the men's clothing industry. The older 
ffanizations, like those of the United Cloth Hat and

leedle trades sinoe the adoption of the first coUective 

agreement, the now famous Protocol of Sept. 2, 1910, 

betweefi the Cloak, Suit and Skirt Manufacturers' Pro- 

teetive Association and the Cloak Makers' Unions of the 

International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union. There 

are in existence at the xnresent time, in some form or 

other, collective agreements or collective understandings 

in almost every one of the trades in the needle industries. 

Some of them have continued along the lines originally 

adopted in the particular trade. Others have gone 

through many changes. The net result, however, has 

heen to bring about certain standards of hours, rates of 

pay, conditions of work, which directly or indirectly are 

heing maintained and improved. 

With the organization of employers, there naturally 
followed the collective consideration and solution of 
Biany trade problems which could never have been 
solved, but for the existence of thriving employers' as- 
soeiations. The results in these directions have been of 
great value to the employers. The creation of stand- 
ards, the elimination of harmful business practices and 
the development of a wholesome tone of business moral- 
ity have been the unfailing results. 

The next step in the development of employers' as- 
soeiations will be cooperation between different associa- 
tions. As the associations represent allied trades, and 
IS they all deal with the same jobbers and retailers 
lironghout the country, a uniformity of terms, condi- 
ioDfl, methods and standards is sure to be brought 
boat. There is also a possibility of collective inter- 
■Bociation effort to deal with the labor problem. In

: in New York City, ten are eomposed almost entirdy 
Jewiflh membership. These ten societies represent a 
al of 1766 members, and have assets amounting to 
9,018.45. Daring the year 1916 they have made loans 
gregating $138^49.25. 

The possibilities of the development of the movement 
umg the Jews of this city are particularly promising, 
wry here is already well organized into hundreda of 
Iges, vereins, unions, etc. ; all of which are excellent 
)dia for eredit union organization, possessing as they 
' the requisite elements of intimacy among members, 
tive public opinion, and general cooperative spirits 
The great need of the movement in New York City 
present, is an independent agency under Jewish aus- 
ices to undertake an extensive publicity campaign and 
irsonal propaganda among the organizations favor&ble 
0* the spread of credit unionism, to serve as a continu- 
18 guide and mentor in problems of administration, 
id to indicate and advance the adoption of standard 
ethods. Such an agency should also concern itself 
ith all external events which bear upon the Credit 
lion movement, representing and protecting the in- 
rests of the group.

By Leo Wolfson 
Vice Grand Master {in New York), I, W. 8. 0. 

fraternal organizations date their origin from 
le middle of the nineteenth century. Originally 
iirposes were to inculcate charity, benevolence 
>therly love amongst their members and also to 
ocial intercourse and interest in Jewish affairs. 
IS the Jewish population increased by the large 
Ltion and new needs and conditions arose, the 
itions, while retaining their original principles, 
lew ones and at various times increased their 
of activity and enlarged their purposes. 

eir present form the Jewish Orders constitute a 
t and important factor in our communal life, 
crests of about a million Jews are involved in 
istence and welfare. Their influence for good 
estimable value to our social activities. In his 
ad order, the Jew, who is a member, finds an 
which affords to him and his family a certain 
! of protection in the event of death, illness or 
and at the same time, a ready means to aid and 
;hers when in similar circumstances. The chief 
f their charity and relief work lies in the fact, 
members, regardless of their social or financial 
ire entitled to receive them, all members having 
ghts and privileges. They are truly democratic 
ons, both in form and in spirit. Another im- 
phase is that the recipient of benefits from the 
r order does not lose his self-respect, nor his

1 faety however, they do extensive social work. They 
re the most generous contribntors to Jewish charitable 
ifltitations; some of them maintain their own institu- 
ions^ and what is perhaps more praiseworthy, they are 
nconraging and urging their members individually to 
ontribute and give freely to all Jewish causes and in- 
ereets. For organizing, moulding and interesting large 
nwfWfn of Jews in the large Jewish problems they have 
>een found the best means, and it must be said to their 
sredit, that they have served Jewish interests at large, 
readily and intelligently. 

- With all the good features these organizations possess 
ind the good work they actually do, their existence as a 
vhole, with very few exceptions, is uncertain and in- 
■eeure. Every now and then a Jewish Order goes out 
tf existence and leaves in its trail thousands of widows 
Uid orphans, absolutely helpless in their greatest hour 
tf need, and deprived of all their legitimate hopes and 
si^peetations of aid and assistance. Our Orders do busi- 
^QK under the "assessment system." Each member re- 
ttodleas of his age is required to pay a certain fixed 
femoant upon the death of a member. As long as the 
tlembership in an order is young and the mortality rate 
Qw, the payments to the endowment fund by the mem- 
bra ia correspondingly low. As the members become 
4der and the mortality rate increases, the payments for 
t^athi also increase and in the course of time it becomes 
l^poarible for members to meet the same, and the Order 
^eeomea bankrupt and goes into the hands of receivers. 
^le ''aasessment system" is fundamentally wrong. Per-

BWg the world over, organized what became the nucleus of 
ie Order B*nai B'rith. It was decided to bar political and 
-ligiouB discussion forever from the councils of the Order, 
> as to make its activities as effective as possible. As early 
B 1851 the Order was in a position to transcend the limits 
f its own state and to make an appeal to the Jews of New 
ork. It was in that year that District Lodge One was 
rganized in New York City. In 1882 the first lodge in 
«rmany was established, laying the foundation for an 
itemaUonal Organization. Since then the Order became 
itemational in scope, with branches all over Europe, Africa 
ltd Asia. As one of the few great Jewish international 
^anizations, the Order B'nai B'rith was in a position to 
tercise considerable Influence in favor of Jews the world

Philanthropic Agencies 



y Morris D. Waldman, Executive Director, 
Federated Jewish Charities, Boston, Mass. 

all no doubt astonish the average person who re- 
> the Communal Register to find so large a number 
ritable relief societies. It is true that most of them 
ry small, many of them confining their activities to 
1 sections of the city or to certain groups of needy 
. The very existence of many of them is even un- 
to those actively engaged in social work. Under 
ircumstances there must be considerable relief work 
1 the city of New York by many groups of people 
unorganized and uncoordinated way. Duplication 
ief, conflict and confusion in the treatment of 
js are inevitable. The only comfort that can be 
d in the thought of so large a number of unrelated 
zations, is the fact that their number indicates 
ide is the impulse for service that moves all ele- 
in the Jewish popiUation. These organizations 
ute a tremendous potential force for good. The 
iality can only be realized if some means will be 
i successfully to standardize their work and 
ite their activities. 

vis have been made in this direction within the past 
ars by the establishment of two organizations, first, 
deration for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic 
ies, and second, the Bureau of Philanthropic Re- 
. The Federation now embodies eighty-four Jewish 
ible and educational organizations in Manhattan 



id the Bronx, to whom it makea appropriatioDB withii 
Le Limitation of its income and subject to the rwtnf 
ons surrounding its eBtablisliraent. Because of tlie* 
istrictiona, the Federation has no authority to dirwL 
ipervise and standardize the work of the various "f 
mizations. It can iuliuence thera in their work o\i} 
I so far as it controls the amount of appropriatii 
tch organizutioQ in excess of its permanent comniilmeDt 
hie commitment is an annual appropriation equal 
/erage annual income of the organization during tl* 
re years prior to the establishmnut of the Federation 
It can readily be seen that unless the Federatiw 
jquires a larger control in the direction of tiie work of 
lc constituent societies, some other means must bf si"' 
oyed to bring about improvement in the charitablf 
itivities in the city. The need for improvement, pw- 



w York is unlimited. Indeed, the technic and 
ence which it is fast developing could, in time, 
.ced at the disposal of other Jewish communities 
United States for similar purposes, 
most significant thing that has been disclosed 
work among the Jewish poor of New York is not 
ct that the number of dependents is larger than 
)f any other city in the country. This would 
illy be expected because the Jewish population of 
fork is greatly in excess of that of any other city 
United States. The striking thing is, that in spite 
! rapid increase of the Jewish population, due to 
[ration as well as to natural causes, the number 
pendent families has steadily diminished year by 
not only proi)ortionately but actually, with the 
tion of those few years in which business depres- 
produced much unemployment and distress. The 
ing figures, published by the United Hebrew 
ties during the period between 1901 and 1916, both 
(nilies under care and families materially aided, 
m this statement : 

No. o( 


Under Care 




No. o( 
I'nder Care 












































This is particularly gratifying in the light of the fnQl 
at the number of dependent families timoiig oth«i 
^meuts in the city, judging by the experience of ether 
ivate relief agencies, has increased in proportion W 
e increase of their population. This proves that llw' 
wa from eastern European countries are not willing 
pendents. On the contrary, they loake every effort 

eare for themselves and thus remain sc| f-rcspcc.lii* 

well as self-supporting. It is impostiihle to ilelcrraiBf 
th scientific accuracy what all of the factors have beeo 
at have produced this satisfying situatfou. Tlkere il 
I doubt, however, that notwithstanding the great handi- 
ps ivhich they have suffered by reason of igiioranK 

the language and customs of this country, they bavt 
livkly adjusted ihi'msclvus Id the new (■(uidiliuiis. .Many 

them have become very prosperous. No better evi- 



uiiemployment, sickness aud death of the breadwin- 
r. These agencies are the many hundreds of mutual 
I organizations such as lodges, chevrahs aud trade 
ions. The hope for Jewish philanthropy in New York 
»ts largely in the possibilities of these mutual aid 
sieties. They are increasingly responsible, there is little 
ubt, for the gradual diminution in the need for 
aritable relief. 


I!)' Abrnham Os^nitT, Mnnn^OT, I'nilrd Hebrciv ChorlU" 

Through an effort tending toward greater coordlnitiu 
among relief agencies, the United Hebrew Cbarilles f 
organized in 1874. Under a special act of the I.^glWiin'* 
of the State ot New York, incorporation was effectui It 
18T7. At its Inception, It was an outgrowth of the Hebm 
llDnevolent and Orphan Asylum Society and at the Umi ^ 
incorporation Jt included a contederation of the lollowlnl 

The Hebrew Benevolent and Orphan Asylum Socletj, 

The Hebrew Benevolent Fuel AsBociatlon. 

The Hebrew Rellet Society. Cong. Shearltli Israel, 

The Ladles' Benevolent Society. Cong. Qatea ot Pnyw. 

The Hebrew Benevolent Ladies' Society of TorfcvlUe. 

To-day the most Imporlant relief agencies, indeed nwrlj 
all, form the I'niled Hebrew Charities, which stands oui u 
the agency bearing the burden of the community's problea 
ill the care of Ihe poor in their homes. Through an arrsnp- 
inent with the non-Jewish oreatilzatlons such as the ChiriD 
Organization Society, the Association (or Improving tbf 
i'mditliin or (he Poor and rhe St. Vincent de Paul Socleif, 


. In the Supply Department 79,354 articles of clothing 
hoasehold necessities were provided for the families 
ing to the attention of the organization. 15,117 gar- 
its were made and repaired, giving employment at the 
e time to a number of persons whom necessity has 
ight to the attention of a relief agency. In the Medical 
artment, through a staff of nurses assisted by codperat- 
eUnics, medical aid and social service are administered. 

1 the Self-Help and Self-Support Department 94 families 
e granted loans and started In small businesses in an 
rt to re-inculcate in these families individual respon- 
iity and make them once more Independent and self- 
int. In the Work Room, women were given employment 
enabled to learn a trade, at the same time supporting 
Qselves and families either wholly or In part. 

hrough the Committee for the Care of the Jewish Tu- 
ulous many persons afflicted with this disease, coming 
tie attention of the organization, were given proper and 
mate treatment in their homes, with full emphasis laid 
1 preventive care for both the afflicted individual and 
remaining members of his family. In the factory of 
Committee, many tuberculous patients, discharged 
1 the sanatoria, have been given employment and an 
>rtanity to rehabilitate themselves in suitable work 
w conditions especially adapted for their proper care. 

Iirougb the National Desertion Bureau, the problem of 
I desertion has been given intensive treatment and the 
uin has made itself felt In a very practical way, in the 
iction of the number of such cases handled by the United 
rew Charities as well as in the reduction of the expen- 
re for these purposes. During the year prior to the 
blishment of this Bureau, the United Hebrew Charities 
lied over 400 cases of desertion; during the year 1917 
number has been reduced to 151. The amount of relief 
nrsement to tiiese families during the past year has 
1 $12,090 as against $37,000 in the year prior to the 
blishment of the Bureau. 

brongh the Community Employment Bureau, which is 
'entioned by the United Hebrew Charities, work has 
I obtained for those applicants who are physically able 

. the Industrial Department 28,401 bags filled with cast- 
ilothlng and other materials have been collected from 
»art8 of the City of New York. The material thus ob- 
)d has been used either directly for persons applying

today the head of the firm of Joseph H. Cohen, cloak and 
suit jnanufacturera (30-38 E. 33rd Street). 

Mr. Cohen flrat became interested in Jewish philanthropic 
work when he identified himself with the Beth Israel 
Hospital. After having served for some time as a member 
of the Board of Directors, he was elected president of the 
hospital in 1902 and has served in this capacity ever since 
I>uring this period the Beth Israel Hospital grew rapidly 
and became one of the most important Jewish institutions 
In this city. The fact that the activities of this institution 
are conducted in such a manner that orthodox Jews may 
aeeept its services without in any way violating their religi- 
ous scruples, is greatly due to the policy inaugurated and 
maintained by Mr. Cohen. 

As a member of the Board of Directors of the Machzike 
Talmud Torah, Mr. Cohen displayed great interest in the 
sdncatlonal and cultural activities of the Jews of New 
York City. He is a member of the Board of Jewish School 
Aid. He is also the treasurer of the Jewish Center, which 
promises to become an unique institution by catering to the 
▼arions religious, educational, cultural and social needs of 
Its members. It is now erecting a building suitable for all 
these purposes. 

Mr. Cohen, as a representative type of conservative Jewry 
in this city, has always manifested great interest in all 
Jewish problems and has participated in every important 
Jewish activity.

By Abrahah Oberott 
zecutive Director, United Hebrew Charities

foundation. It arope in responBe to a definite 
The industrial revolution, the concentration of 
1 the factories, the withdrawal of tasks from the 
he entrance of married women into industry, — 
s the sequence of steps which led to its ori^n. 
;h the historic development of the movement is 
le comprehended in the United States, it haa a 
d interesting past. 

an Priedrich Oberlin, renowned Protestant pastor 
-1826) was the founder of the nursery. Passing 
village in his native Vosges, (Switzerland), on 
it harvest day in 1769, he heard from a hut a 
of childish voices. Entering, he found a group 
! children seated around a girl of eighteen, who 
lUc spinning her thread. She was caring for the 
whose mothers were in the fields, 
eupon he conceived of a new social institution 
gaged this young girl, Louise Scheppler, to or- 
in his presbytery "une garderie" where during 
; seasons, children between the ages of fifteen 
nd three years might be cared for while their 
i were at work. This, says Malarce, was the germ 
'crdehe" and the "salle d'asile." 
301, Mme. de Pastoret attempted for tlie little 
the Parisian workwomen, what Oberlin had don« 


for the peaaant women of tbo Vosges. She opei 
"salle d'hospitalite" where, in two small routiis, 
twelve children were sheltered. 

In 1810, Bobert Onen, famoua Bocial refgrmer, hi 
chaoced upon stories of the work of Oberlin and . 
de Pastoret, decided to aid his workers by ureatii 
hia cottoD mills at New Lanark, Scotland, a schw 
the care of children from two to seven .veurs of 
This was opened in 1812. 

From these beginnings, there developed in K 
European countries two distinct types of institution 
the care of children under the age of seven years. 1 
the "sallcs d'asiles" (later "ecoles matenielks, ' 
France, the infant schools of England, the "i 


1905 twelve additional nurseries weie organized, 
: now there are sixteen nurseries in New York City 

Jewish atupiees. 

Emanael Sisterhood of Personal Service, organ- 
1 1888, immediately andertoob day nursery work 
base of its wider activity. It was the first Jewish 
itioD to undertake such work in the country. The 
£1 Sisterhood Settlement, founded in 1890, began 
aduct of a day nursery at that time. The Bright- 
owever, founded in 1693, was the first Jewish insti- 

organized for the specific purpose of conducting 

nursery. In 1905, the Hebrew Kindergarten and 
■lutsery was founded, followed by the establish- 
in 1906 of the Hebrew Day Nursery of Heory 

and in 1909 by the two Brooklyn institutions, the 
Hebrew Day Nursery and the Hebrew Ladies' Day 
fy of Brownsville. Thereafter were organized the 
1 and the Daughters of Israel in 1912, and within 
ist two years, the Bronx Federation, the Harlem 
w, the Harlem Branch of the Hebrew, the Day 
ry of the Sisterhood of Social Workers, the Jewish 
Tursery of the Bronx, and the Ahavath Chesed Day 
ry. In this latter period, also, the East Side Day 
ry, which had its inception in 1892 as a kinder- 
I, entered the field. Ten of these are now incor- 
id and the Beth El and Emanuel Nurseries are 
ic parts of incorporated iiistitutinns. 
the Jewish institutions there are on register daily 
400 children under school age and school children 
ome in for meals. In addition to this number, 
is a daily attendance of about 200 Jewish children

largest Jewish orphan asylum in the world, with a total 
institution census of about 1250 children. 

2. The Hebrew Sheltering Quardian Orphan Allium 
of Pleasantville, New York, the most advanced educa- 
tional type of a cottage-home orphan aslyizm, with an 
institution census of somewhere between 615 and 625 

3. The Brooklyn Hebrew Orphan Asylum, a goo4 type 
of congregate institution, with a population of approxi- 
mately 700 children. 

The Jewish community may also boast of the fact 
that during the last decade it has developed the family 
home plan of taking care of Jewish dependent children 
as an integral part of orphan asylum work thru the 
organization of boarding bureaus attached to each of 
the three orphanages just mentioned, with a census ap- 
proximately of 800 children for the Hebrew Orphan 


lylum ; 300 for the Hebrew Sheltering QuartliB,u So- 
ity, and 100 for the Brooklyn Hebrew Orphao Asylum 
lus the total number of orphans, half-orphans and 
stitute children taken care of by the three Jewish 
phan asylums in Greater New York ranges 8om^ 
lere between 3300 and 3400 children. The children 
tJiese orphan asylums are from 5 to 16 years old. 
For children below this age the facilities of tie com- 
inity unfortunately are much less adequate. To bt 
1 with, nearly 500 Jewish children in Greater New 
irk are at the present time placed in Doo-Jewid 
mea and are under the supervision of non-Jewish in- 
tutions or agencies. The bulk of these children 
early 400) is being taken care of by the Nursery and 
iild's Hospital. 
4. Only 350 Jewish "infants" are being cared for 


i deeijdedly inferior and inadequate. Many of the 
Te modem requirements of an up-to-date asylum are 
ssing, such as adequate play rooms, play grounds, 
ial rooms, club rooms, vocational and industrial shops, 

S. The Israel Orphan Asylum, situated on Second 
reet, owns a new and ingenious building, but it was 
I constructed with a comprehensive knowledge of the 
»ds of present day child-caring institutions. It is as 
; doubtful whether this orphanage will take care of 
called temx>orary cases, or of court cases, or of orphan 
ildren, or of all these three types of children. 
). A small Jewish Orphan Asylum in Brownsville 
lich has not yet undertaken active child-caring work. 
Thus, numerically speaking, we are dealing with a 
oblem of 1000 Jewish infants up to 5 years of age^ — 
whom only 350 are under Jewish auspiceSybQQ under 
mtile care, and about 150 either unprovided for or 
aced under the temporary care of day nurseries, — and 
ith the still bigger problem of the 3500 Jewish depen- 
ait children ranging in age from 5 years upwards, 
he total number of Jewish normal child dependency is 
lerefore 4500 children. 

II. The Needs of the Community 

1. The most obvious weakness in our present scheme 
- eommunal effort for dependent children is the poor 
id inadequate provision for Jewish infants. Altho 
6 Home for Hebrew Infants may well be proud of the 
nerous and splendid men on its Board of Directors, 
d of its beautifully equipped buildings, its whole 


kmeer work along educational as well as industrial and 
srrective lines are such as to challenge the brainiest 
len in the community. 

3. Then there is a great need for the organisation of 
Q agency to take care of the pre-protectory cases. The 
ewish Big Brothers have done and are doing splendid 
YMrk in preventing commitments of Ik^ to reforms- 
cries; but to those of us who are familiar with the 
jrpe of boy frequently recommended by the courts to 
rp[han asylums, as a way out of the protectory, it is 
nite dear that sooner or later the community must be 
repared to establish a school or institution which will 
epresent something between the orphan asylum and the 
protectory — a school with strong home influences and 
rith great possibilities for industrial occupations. Judg- 
Dg from the present number of boys of this type com- 
aitted an4ually to Jewish orphan asylums in Greater 
(few York, such an institution, preferably to be con- 
lucted on the cottage home plan, should have facilities 
for not less than 200 boys. 

The number of girls belonging to the pre-protectory 
yi>e, judging again from the number of commitments 
yy the courts to the present orphan asylums, is not 
|uite so large, but is sufficiently important to warrant 
hie need of a pre-reformatory school, under Jewish 
iuspices, for the care of at least 100 girls. 

4. The temporary home of the type of the Far Rocka- 
eay Haven has distinctly proved its value in the scheme 
)l community child welfare. As is well known, this 
ittle institution accommodates children up to 12 years 
f age, temporarily, during the illness of a father or 



ve., 136th to 138th SU. (Est. 1822, Inc. 1832). 
of the earliest forms of caring for dependent chil- 
ets been the method generally known as the congre- 
an. According to this system, children are housed 
red for under one roof. While It is clear that under 
conditions, the possibilities for intimate personal 
ze and supervision are greatly reduced, there are 
isating advantages possessed by a congregate Institu- 
:ated in a large city. Parents, relatives and friends 
isier access to the orphan child, and thus the bonds 
ily life are not easily broken; the child has at its 
nd all the varied educational facilities of a large city, 
ove all the orphan boy and girl lives practically the 
ife which he or she will have to live after leaving 

ng the leading institutions of the congregate type, 
brew Orphan Asylum is unique In combining all the 
lie features of a large congregate institution. Situ- 
I it is in a metropolis oCterlng exceptional educational 
mities, the Institution takes advantage of them by 
; as large a number of its wards as possible, to the 
- public schools, and those of special ability, to the 
:hools, technical schools and colleges of the city. In 
n, the Institution offers instruction outside of school 
in Hebrew and Jewish Religion, in stenography, 
iting, bookkeeping, wood-work, mechanical drawing, 
le operating, dress-making and hand sewing, em- 
'ing, darning and cooking. Among the more informal 
of educational work carried on in the Institution, 
i mentioned lectures and entertainments, educational 
in the library of the Institution, and sex hygiene, 
icreational life of the children finds expression in 
cs and gymnastics, in general club activities, in the 
}f a glee club, a synagogue choir, an orchestra, a 
a well trained cadet corps, and in frequent outings 
cursions during the summer months. 
3very modern child caring institution, the Hebrew 
1 Asylum conducts also an After-Care Department, 
epartment has charge of a Friendly Home for Girls 
Speyer School Building, on Lawrence Street. The 
is a large city apartment in charge of a house

de for the orphan children who are admitted "the 

kind of home, the right kind of school, and the right 
of education." To reproduce as nearly as possible a 
ne home atmosphere, the children are housed in cot- 
, each of which shelters a group of about thirty chil- 
At the head of the household is a cottage mother, 
:s charged with the direct supervision and management 
e household affairs of the cottage, and with creating 
roper moral and social atmosphere. Under her guid- 

the children do all the house-work and cooking. The 
se mothers meet the executive head of the Institution 
iquent conferences, to discuss problems arising in the 
routine. To encourage the development of high stan- 

in the social activities of the children, inter-cottage 
dtitions are held for general efficiency, for a banner of 
liness, of scholarship, and of personal appearance. To 
late further individual development, the children are 
tted to participate in a limited and carefully guided 
le of self-government, called the "cottage republic," 
n the larger commonwealth of which each "republic" 
onstituent unit. 

long the distinctive features of the educational work 
4 on in the Institution, Is a carefully graded curricu- 
which makes it possible to cover the elementary and 
school work within a period of nine years, instead of 
B years; a technical school in which the boys are 
t drawing, wood-work, machine work, electrical work, 
inraphy and typewriting, and the girls are instructed 
awing, sewing, embroidery, domestic science, dress- 
ig, stenography and typewriting. The training in 
mic subjects proceeds parallel with Instruction in the 
;ials of a number of trades during a period of eight

ng. In this manner the child receives not only a

*y Babbi a. J. Amateau, Manager of the Socieiy for 
ike Welfare of the Jewish Deaf 


There are in New York City between 2800 and 8000 
ewish deaf-mutes. The ratio is higher for the Jews 
lan for any other race due to the heavy Jewish immigra- 
on and the fact that it is customary among Jewish 
omigrants for near blood relations to marry, resulting 
ery often in congenital deaf-muteness. Seventy-five 
er cent are natives and the remaining twenty-five i)er 
^nt are adult immigrants who have accompanied their 
amilies to this country, the United States putting no 
bstacles to their entry, provided a bond is put up that 
hey will not become public charges. 

The deaf-mutes present to the community two distinct 
iroblems, namely, the natives and the immigrants. The 
ommunity has provided for the education of the native 
om deaf-mute through the school maintained by the 
iSBociation for the Improved Instruction of Deaf-Mutes, 
ituated at Lexington Avenue and 67th Street, which is 
inducted as a Jewish school, although supported by 
tate, city and county. Their religious education both 
t this school and at other non-sectarian schools for the 
eaf where some prefer to send their children on account 
f the method in teaching (there are two methods: 1. 
p-reading and speech; 2. signs and speech combined) 

provided for by the Society for the Welfare of the 
3wiBh Deaf. 


Id additiou to tliia, the Society maintsina a vcfl 
uipped biiildiug at Nob. 40-42-44 "West 115th Strwf 
raishing religious, vocational, educational, phjna 
d social facilities for the welfare of the adult Jenil 
af mute of both sesea. As a result of the edncalia 
lich the deaf children receive at the schools for 
uf, and the trade they learn therein, and as a re 
rtlier o£ the immediate care that the Society for 
(ilfare of the Jewish Deaf takes when they gradDlt 
am school, apprenticing thera out in their cfaoeeo 
tioii and keeping in contact with them coDtioil« 
Dreaft<?r, there is hardly any poverty or destitutJa 
long the Jewish deaf-mutes of Greater New YoA. 
le records of the United Hebrew Charities and olhff 
aritahle institutions of New York indicate that then 
e only one or two eases of Jewish deaf-mutes applfinf 


Hard of Hearing 

No survey o' the extent of the problem has ever been 
lade but it is estimated that there are from 4,000 to 
,000 Jews hard of hearing in New York City. Their 
lil^t is most pitiable. While a person bom deaf or 
De who becomes deaf at an early age can adjust himself 
» life in a normal world through the educational and 
odal facilities afforded them, there is no provision what- 
D0ver made, for those who lose their hearing either 
(opogh accident or sickness, at maturity. It is well 
n0wn that such people are a£9icted with melancholia 
rhich renders them helpless and unable to readjust 
^jl^ li^^es. In the hope of saving their hearing they go 
qilio doctor to quack, spending their all. They are taken 
^?ttrtage of at every turn with no one to guide or aid 
kaxL They can no longer follow their chosen vocations 
r bnnness on account of their handicap and their fam- 
1^ and themselves become destitute. 

Tha oommunity must create a social agency to care for 
hMS unfortunate i)eople ; to afford them medical service 
ad to guide and advise them in their period of re- 
^jnstnienty providing for their learning of a new trade 
I neoessaiy. Their social as well as their religious wel- 
im must also be provided for. 

The Blind 

It is estimated that there are 1,100 Jewish blind in 
ireater New York, figuring at the ratio of 1 to every 
,200, there being about 1,300,000 Jews in Greater New 


The blind, like tbe deaf-mutes are also divided lota 
groups, namely: native bocn and immi^anU. That 
nsiODB in turn may be subdivided into those who tn 
rn blind, those who lose their sight in chihlhofxl uil 
3se who lose their sight after maturity. 
There are two schools for the blind. The State ScJiod 
• the Blind and the Public Bay School for tlie Blini 
le leaders among the blind favor the former as it i* 
residential school and affords them greater fadlttis 
7 education and vocational training than the PohBt 
ly School. This also eliminates the need Far a 

take the child to and from school. 

The three a^Micies engaged in the care for the Jewii 

nd are the Guil
