NYC Hebrew Day School Leaders
Vote Protest Action Against Federation

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

NEW YORK (JTA)—More than
500 New York City Hebrew day
school educators and lay educa-
tion leaders voted by acclamation
Jan. 7 for a series of protest
actions aimed at the Federation
of Jewish Philanthropies if the
federation did not respond to re-
quests for funds the schools need-
ed to end "a financial crisis."
No date was set in the resolu-
tion but a spokesman said that
there was general i.greement on
delaying such actions another four
or five weeks. The spokesman said
that the last meeting between He-
brew day school representatives
and federation officials was held
last September and that since then,
federation officials have continued
to report that the request was
"under study" by a commission.
The resolution was adopted at
a delegates assembly represent-
ing 150 Hebrew day schools,
which was convened by the Asso-
ciation of New York City Yes-
hiva Principals and Administra-
tors.
Some 50,000 children attend the
affected schools.
The spokesman reported that the
debts of the day schools in the

Federation gives subsidies to in-
dividual Hebrew day schools but
that the total of such subsidies last
year was about $40,000, "less than
a dollar per pupil." He said that
teachers were talking about a
strike, that parents of day school
students were being "taxed to
capacity," and that "frustrated
and harried administrators" would
not use new educational develop-
ments because of "inflation and
rising costs."
