for the fall semester of the
United Hebrew Schools is now
under way, with classes in the

ducted on a limited basis and
are designed to prepare the
young women for Jewish living
in the home.

requests for modern Hebrew
training on an informal basis
designed for young children,
special classes have been
formed for six and seven
year olds, which meet twice
weekly. The program consists
of Hebrew conversation, He-
brew songs and playlets and

I other project -is "Operation
