Crohn, Evaluates
Detroit Schools

Lawrence W. Crohn, presi-
dent of Detroit's Jewish Com-
munity Council, in an article,
"Detroit's Communal School
System," in the Reconstruction-
ist, evaluates the United He-
brew School program and the
Yiddish schools that have been
integrated into the system.
In his article, Crohn points
to "some unresolved problems"
and states:
"The majority of children
drop out of Hebrew schools af-
ter Bar Mitzvah or Confirma-
tion. The aim of a Bar Mitzvah
tilts the attendance towards a
preponderance of boys. But,
with the greater emphasis on
the high school and Midrasha,
and the larger community ef-
forts in adult education, it is
hoped that more and more chil-
dren will continue Jewish
"A largely unexplored area
is the relationship of Jewish
education in America to that in
Israel. Many Israeli teachers
are serving in our American-
Jewish schools, but they have
to be acclimated to American
needs and conditions. While Is-
rael dominates the world Jew-
ish scene today, little has been
done to create a two-way cul-
tural bridge—at least not in any
formal sense. Even the use of
Israeli Hebrew is often resisted.
But this is, to be sure, a reflec-
tion of the unsolved problems
that plague the relationship of
Israel and the Diaspora. It
would seem the school room
could be one location where the
spiritual and cultural values of
Israeli and American Jewry
might coalesce. There is much
singing of Israeli songs. But
more is needed.
"It may be hoped that the
new recognition accorded to
Jewish teaching will lead to a
solution of some of these and
many other problems. A larger
school system gives a sense of
loyalty to children as well as
to the adult population. Ameri-
can Judaism can no longer be
subsumed under the separate
regency of synagogue or of com-
munity-center or of Hebrew
School. The organic community,
if it is realizable, will come
from the needs and the prac-
tices of Jewry. The community
school system will come only if
the community is ready for it.
The experiences of Detroit may
be a sign-post pointing to a
better future."
