Boost to Hebrew Education Lauded by Readers

Editor, The Jewish News:
Your "Purely Commentary"
column of the Passover issue con-
tained a message for which you
are to be highly complimented and
which is not often heard in our
community.
I sincerely hope that it will
herald a change in attitude on the
part of our community's leaders
towards the Hebrew teaching pro-
fession and will thus once again
make Detroit this nation's pioneer
in a new attitude towards the
Hebrew teaching profession.
On the part of the profession,
unification of rank and complete
!involvement in the teachers' pro-
fessional problems is a must. The
Hebrew teacher must also strive
so create and live up to a schol-
arly image for himself.
Furthermore, the H e b r e w
teacher needs to push himself
more into the forefront of Jew-
ish communal involvement, and
be ready to undertake some of
the appropriate tasks presently
reserved for men of commerce
and philanthropic means.
Many of these steps cannot be
accomplished without the proper
approach on the part of the pub-
lic. Besides a more complete in-
volvement of parents in parent-
teacher activities, there needs to
be a recognition of the teacher's
professional status.
Yet, the role of the community
in raising the Hebrew teaching
profession is paramount. Its most
crucial aspect is the teacher selec-
tion process. Professionals with
strong academic background,
teachers steeped in tradition, and
artists in pedagogy will not come
nor remain in a system which em-
ploys "crash programs" in teacher
education and offers the "Johnny-
come-lately" educator the same or
advanced privileges. Neither can
the professional teacher grow in a
community which places quantity
before quality . . .
The peace of mind achieved by
a teacher when he knows that the
community is behind him in a
permanent manner, this "peace of
mind" which you refer to in your
commentary, will go a long way
towards the betterment of the
status of the Hebrew teacher in
our community of Detroit.
JOSEPH HIRSCH
* * *
Editor, The Jewish News:
It was gratifying to read your
editorial about the necessity of
elevating the status of the Jewish
teaching profession.
The aspirations of the American
Jewish teacher have received only
limited recognition although his
role is, as you point out, essen-
tial to the continuity of Jewish
life.
Your comment s, therefore,
should be a source of encourage-
ment to teachers and a guideline
to those in the community who
are responsible for Jewish educa-
tional programs.
ALBERT J. BURKE
* *
Editor, The Jewish News:
In the many years that I have
been involved in Jewish organiza-
tional activities this is the first
time that I feel compelled to write
to the Letter Box. The call that
MT. Slomovitz sounded in the
April 16 column "Purely Corn-

mentary" for the elevation of the
prestige of teachers involved in
Jewish education should not re-
main just space in an article, but
should re-echo from many quar-
ters throughout the American
Jewish community.
. . It is neither right nor fair
that our policy shall be depend-
ent upon Israel for our supply
of trained teachers. We must de-
velop our own byproducts of the
American-Jewish environment.
The financial arm of Detroit's
Jewish community, the Jewish
Welfare Federation, ought to re-

view some of its goals with an
eye toward aiding day schools .. .
and granting financial help to in-
dividuals anxious to enter and
obtain degrees in the field of
Hebrew education.
We can no longer . afford to wait.
The ratio between children want-
ing- this knowledge and teachers
qualified to transmit this knowl-
edge is rapidly getting out of pro-
portion. A crash program to create
Hebrew teachers out of men and
women who teach general studies
is neither solution nor cure.

up to date on policies affecting
their children.

The PHILADELPHIA ORCHES-
TRA, which will close the Masonic
Auditorium Series with a concert,
May 5, has been undergoing a
transformation on the decorative
side. In recent years, that hith-
erto exclusively male province—
the symphony orchestra—has been
adding more and more musicians
on the distaff side, and the Phila-
delphia Orchestra has been no
exception to the rule. The fem-
inine invasion was given impetus
by World War II, when so many
young musicians were called upon
to serve in the armed forces.
There are today seven women mu-
sicians on the orchestra's roster,
more than at any time in its
65-year history.

When the MOISEYEV DANCE

Yorkers get a chance to see them.
The already legendary folk dance
and musical organization will open
in Manhattan immediately after
its Detroit appearance. The com-
pany of some 100 dancers will be
substantially the same as ap-
peared here four seasons ago.
