Fisher Focuses on Education in Gratz Address

place that which is bad. to fill in
gaps and to find and test new
programs and methods."
Concurrently, he added, "instead
of leaving Jewish education as
something isolated, the attempt is
being made to relate it more to
the quality of Jewish life. Instead
of stressing only classroom educa-
tion, we are addressing ourselves
to all those Jewish influences
which can shape the lives of our
children and our people—formal
and informal, here and in Israel."
While much has and is being
done, much more remains, Fish-
er told his audience. Of para-
mount importance, he cited the
`vital need to enlarge and im-
prove both the recruiting and
the training of administrators
and teachers in Jewish educa-
tion. Everything we do will be
only an exercise in futility, un-
less we have administrators and
teachers of the highest quality
and in sufficient number."
Fisher observed that over the
past 10 years "federations and
welfare funds have increased their
allocations for Jewish education
70 per cent—more than for any
other field of Jewish service. Cities
like Philadelphia and Chicago are
already allocating a millon dollars
or more annually for education."

tion in America as it relates to
American Jewry, particularly the
youth, Fisher observed that what
until recently was an "open soci-
ety" now "has become something
else—the turbulent society.
"Every day," he added "We
seem to count vast losses among
our young people as they flee
their heritage,. or just drift away.
They look for meaning in their
lives and never guess that mean-
ing is available—if only they knew
their Judaism."
In contrast to those segments of

Jewish youth who have neglected

president's years of dedicated
service to the over-all community
in general and to the Jewish com-
munity in particular as a com-
munal lay leader, philanthropist
and presidential adviser.
Also honored was Dr. Solomon
Grayzel, professor of Jewish his-
tory at Dropsie University, author
of "A History of the Jews" and
past editor of the Jewish Publica-
tion Society of America.
