Philly Survey Shows
Shift of Jewish
Pupils to Congregations
PHILADELPHIA, (JTA) —
The evolution of Jewish religi-
ous school attendance in this
city from preponderant enroll-
ment in communal schools to
attendance of the vast majority
of Jewish religious students in
congregational schools was pic-
tured here in a report on Jewish
education made by William B.
Rudenko, chairman of the Com-
mittee on Jewish Education of
the Federation of Jewish
Agencies of Philadelphia.
According to the report, there
are approximately 22,000 Jewish
c h i l d r en attending religious
schools here. Of the total, some
20,000, or 90 per cent, attend
congregational schools, while
about 2,000 are enrolled in
communal school s. Rudenko
cited earlier studies, showing
that, in 1919, approximately two-
thirds of the children getting
Jewish education in this city
went to communal schools; by
1951, 14,000 were enrolled in re-
ligious schools, two-thirds of
them in congregational schools.
The 22,000 children in the re-
ligious school today, he report-
ed, "represent about half of
the Jewish children in metro-
politan Philadelphia between
the ages of 6 and 13 attending
public school. However, at one
time or another, about 35,000,
or 80 per cent, of all such chil-
dren received some type of re-
ligious education." Rudenko
added that the local figures
"closely follow national sta-

where the waiters
I wonder where the Zoolch people get
their waiters. They must recruit them from
the Oxford Debating Society. Never have I
met any body of men so anxious to dispute
a decision. Just give a Zoolch waiter your
order and you are in for a major discussion.
The most argumentative of the Zoolch
staff is Max. A few days ago I ate lunch at
Max's counter and ordered chopped steak.
"You had chopped steak last week," said
Max. "Try somethinc, else."
"I know," I replied. "I had chopped
steak last week. It was very good. And I
want it again."
"Everything we serve is good," boasted
Max. "Why order the same thing all the
time? We're not specialists. We have calf's
liver and onions today. I'll bring you some."
No you won't," I almost shouted, "I
don't like calf's liver."
"What's not to like about calf's liver?"
asked Max. You have a mere childish
prejudice and you're carrying it into adult
life. Try calf's liver."
By now my dander was up and I gave
"Next week, Max, I will visit a psy-
chiatrist and try to rid myself of liver
phobia. But today—in fact, right now—I
want chopped steak. Medium."
"Medium no less," spoke Max, more in
sorrow than scorn. "O.K., Mister. It's your
stomach. In this establishment we don't
argue. The customer is always right, even
if he's —"
I lost the last few words as Max turned
and went through the swinging doors. I am
sure that the muffled comment was not a
compliment. I asked myself why do I have
to put up with this? Am I really fascinated
by Max's outrageous line? And why do I
continue to eat lunch at Zoolch's Restau-
rant? Why is there always a line of people
waiting for a seat?
The answer is plain. Wonderful food!
Every dish that Zoolch's serves is tops—
not just once or twice but always.
Mamma Zoolch is in charge of the kitchen
and she does the buying. (Papa Zoolch is in
charge of the so-called "personnel" and he
takes the cash. Actually he is more inter-
ested in discussing world affairs with the
A friend of mine in the wholesale fruit
and vegetable business tells me that when
Mamma Zoolch comes in to buy, she drives
everyone mad. (Her first name is Fanny;
they all call her Fussy Fanny.) She exam-
ines every item she orders. as if she were
seeking diamonds for a monarch's crown.
No wonder Mamma Zoolch's meals are, so
good! Quality seems to be a passion with her!
Come to think of it, in all the years I
have been eating at Zoolch's, I have never
seen any ketchup on the tables but Heinz. I
once mentioned this fact to Mamma Zoolch.
"What did you expect?", she said, "If
you eat at The Concord, whose ketchup do
you see on the table? Heinz. If you eat at
the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, whose
ketchup is served there? Only Heinz. If
Heinz Ketchup is served in all the best
hotels and the best restaurants of the world,
why should Zoolch's be different? To save
a few pennies? No, sir! Never! We may not
be as fancy as all those places, but we're
just as fussy".
Well spoken, Fussy Fanny! I like your
formula for success. I shall continue to eat
at Zoolch's. And maybe some day, Max will
greet me as I sit at his counter and say:—
"Good day, sir. May I be of service to
I can dream. Can't I?
