Board of License for Detroit Jewish Educators
Is Established by Hebrew Schools, Synagogues
Announcement was made this
week of the establishment of a De-
troit Board of License for Hebrew
and Yiddish Teachers, to share in
a common concern to raise the
standards of Jewish education and
the educational institutions.
A statement accompanying the
announcement of the formation of
the new board declares:
"The teacher being the chief
and central force in formal ed-
ucation, it is of primary im-
portance to insure his qualifica-
tions and to elevate his profess-
ional status. While many teach-
ers by reason of their back-
ground, competence and learning
will reflect standards superior
to the requirements for license,
it is essential to establish stand-
ards as a minimum for the qual-
ification of teachers. The entire
Jewish community will be served
and enriched by such a proced-
"Although the schools vary
widely in their religious orienta-
tion and curricular content and
are autonomous as far as engag-
ing teachers to suit their special
requirements, they have all
agreed to restrict their teaching
staff to teachers who hold valid
Board Certification or who hold
provisional certificates and are
working towards permanent cert-
ification. Schools affiliated with
the Board of License have ex-
pressed their accord with the
aims and purposes of the Board
and have indicated their intent
to cooperate with the board."
The educational institutions who
have indicated their willingness
to participate in the Detroit Board
of License are the following: Unit-
ed Hebrew Schools and its affili-
ated schools, Shaarey Zedek, Bnai Ahavas Achim and the Combined
David, Hillel Day School, Akiva Jewish Schools (Sholem Aleichem

School, Beth Moses, Beth Shalom,
ated with the United Hebrew
Schools include Adas Shalom,

Greetings on The New Year
Relatives and Friends
Mr. and Mrs. Louis M. Elliman
One of the most far-reaching and
important citizen protection laws
ever enacted in Michigan will go
into operation starting Jan. 1.
It is the Motor Vehicle Accident
Claims Act, passed by the 1965
Legislature. Its function is to pro-
tect innocent victims of uninsured
drivers by setting up a fund of
more than $11,000,000 to pay
The fund is administered by the
Secretary of State through a major
division of the Michigan Depart-
ment of State.
Although claims against the new
Fund will not start until the first
of the year, there is another impor-
tant target date . . . Nov. 1. This is
the day that Michigan motorists be-
gin to purchase 1966 Michigan
license plates. And along with their
plates, they will also pay into the
Accident Claims Fund.
Each uninsured motor vehicle
owner pays $25 into the fund.
All insured owners, on the other
hand, pay only $1 into the fund.
The uninsured motorist receives
absolutely nothing for his $25 fee.
This is not insurance. Actually, this
is a penalty he pays for the option
of remaining uninsured.
On the other hand, the insured
driver does get something for his
$1 fee . . . insurance protection.
This protection is much like the un-
insured motorist rider which is
sold through private insurance
companies and which costs several
times more than the $1.

Who can measure the year that has slid away?
Who can accurately picture the year that enters?
Our printing world is made up of trillions of words
that constantly are in the travail of birth. An
industry that measures its craftsmanship by the dot
over the "1"; the dot that alters the color spectrum;
the dot that changes the entire meaning of a word needs
craftsmen at their best.
