JERUSALEM (WNS Palcor

Chief Rabbi Abraham Kook has
Jerusalem seen a funeral that at-
tracted no many thousands of peo-
ple as the interment of Avinoam
Yellin, who succumbed to an as-
sassin's bullets. At an early hour
huge throngs surrounded the lied-
assah Hospital, where the senior
government inspector of Jewish
schools passed away. The foremost
leaders of Palestine Jewry gath-
ered in the city for the funeral
exercises, at which orations were
delivered by Chief Rabbi Isaac
Herzog, Isaac Ben Zvi, president
of the Vaad Leumi, and Joseph
Luria, director of the Vaad liachi-
nuch. The most touching aspect
of the procession were the hun-
dreds of school children who sur-
rounded the hospital building and
cried for "our Avinoam."
All the members of the es•
ecutive of the Vaad Leumi, the
entire staff of the Hebrew Uni•

RABBI FRAM TO SPEAK
TO PISGAH ON MONDAY

The fact that the emancipation movement turned out to
be a false hope on most fronts did not help to restore
the spiritualty of the Jewish people too quickly. The
granting of a place of priority in Jewish life to the Tal-
mid Chacham, to the man of learning, proves a slow
process.
This is why it becomes necessary for Jews in this
country to observe Education Weeks and Education
Months. For this reason educators are compelled to take
time from the classrooms in order to turn propagandists.
Because the necessity of making the Jewish school the
center of our people's interest is not an issue to be pleaded
for with our children. It is a matter that must be brought
to the attention of the parents.
Too many Jewish children go through life without
any knowledge whatever about their people, their
history, their culture, the contributions Jews have made
and are in position to continue to make to the life of our
