WORDS OF WISDOM: More than 40 years ago Louis
Marshall, 'the great American Jewish leader, stressed the
importance of Jewish education in an impressive credo:
"Great as has been and is my interest in what has been done
for the relief of our brethren in Eastern Europe and in Pa-
lestine, warm as is my sympathy and pride in the various
Jewish charitable institutions in our great American cities,
it is my firm conviction that there is nothing that the Jews
of this country can do which equals in importnce the
maintenance and development of its educational system.
"Unless this educational work is generously supported,
everything else for which we may strive will have been in
"Whatever distinction is attached to the name of the
Jew is derived almost exclusively from the fact that he has
given.to the world those ethical precepts, that are exempli-
fied in our Bible, that have been illustrated by our great
sages and teachers, and that have been incorporated into
the moral concepts of the civilized world.
"The great problem of American Jewry today is to find
the simplest, the most direct, and the most effective means
of regaining what we have been losing, the finest ideals in-
herited from our forefathers."

CJFWF SURVEY: The extent of attention which the or-
ganized Jewish communities are now paying to Jewish edu-
cation is indicated in a survey by the Council of Jewish Fed-
erations and Welfare Funds. They show that Federations in
93 cities have allocated more than $16 million in 1973.
This- is about 13 percent more than in the preceding
year and 127 percent higher than seven years ago. In some
communities the increased allocations for Jewish education
made up more than 25 percent of community funding for all
local purposes.
This increased interest has led to the establishment of
a CJFWF national committee to explore federation roles in.
planning for Jewish education. Guidelines were developed
for financing and planning for day schools, but the commit-
tee's framework is concerned with the totality of Jewish
education. * *

EDUCATION PROBLEMS: Today, the federations are
facing an alarming decline in the enrollment of pupils in the
Jewish schools. While the day schools have maintained the
line in their enrollment during the last few years — there
are now about 70,000 students in the day schools, including
47,000 in the New York area — the afternoon and week-end
schools have not.
The CJFWF committee on education is now exploring
suggestions by the American Association for Jewish Educa-
tion with a view to provide high-quality, economically feasi-
ble school programs in a time of small enrollment and tight
money. For a variety of reasons congregations find it in-
creasingly difficult to finance the annual deficit of their
schools. Most of the congregational elementary schools re-
ceive no direct subsidy from the federations. Many of them
are now applying for such community support.
The CJFWF survey shows that some 26 percent of the
total federation allocation for Jewish education goes to day
schools.Chicago allocated $1.6 million in 1973 for education,
followed by Philadelphia, Toronto, New York, Los Angeles
and Cleveland. Detroit allocated close to $750,000 in 1973.

Checking Accounts:

only $1.00 a month
at NBS ...or FREE!

When your business checking account's with National Bank of Southfield, you
pay at most a S1.00 monthly statement charge — write as many checks as you like,
make as many deposits as you like, and no minimum balance. If you keep 5200
or more in your NBS account, then you get free checking. (Check printing
is charged at our cost.)

Now compare ours with a business checking account that charges, let's say,
10c for every check, 20c for every deposit, and 2c for each check deposited plus
a statement charge. Over an average month, that can add up fast — S10, S15,
even S20 or more. An NBS business checking account also gives you a monthly
statement, and its itemized with each deposit made and each check paid. And
you needn't carry a big checking balance to offset charges. It's $1.00 or nothing.
You get a lot more for a lot less when you check with National Bank of
Southfield. So come in and see us about your new account today. It's simply
good business.
