Park ave. Me 4-1307 volume Xii no. 24 at the hebrew Academy if we Aren t teaching students to toss our Mother s dishes Quot russian churchmen will be in Indianapolis this week by Teryl Daskal what a four years Young and about 30 years old what a seven hours a Day and promises to last a lifetime Well if its All As Good As it seems its the concept of the hebrew Day school As embodied by the hebrew Academy of Indianapolis. Not As a replacement for the existing forms of jewish education the Academy provides a viable alternative for those interested in an intensive jewish education. This does not imply a neglect of secular studies rather they Are accomplished in almost half the time. The school includes grades kindergarten through six. From 1 30 . Until 3 30 . Primary Grade students Complete both a secular and religious curriculum and still have time for Art lunch and gym. By Many standards the Quality of that education is excellent. A we move quickly and get Down to basics a explains Edwin Epstein director of the Academy. A your classes Are Small our teachers Are dedicated and we give Homework when with a total enrolment of 56, the student teacher ratio is one to eight. An open classroom technique is employed whereby a student progresses at his own level of ability. For example often grades four through six will study together. This Means a students secular and religious Progress is not tied together. A i get to go ahead As far As 1 want a explained sixth grader Philip Yaffe. A i Don t have to wait for everyone to finish the this he added was his favorite thing about school. A a in a in third Grade in hebrew a said Gina Cohen a and second Grade in English. I like hebrew the religious education with a Strong emphasis on hebrew takes a three pronged approach. Children Are taught prayer and social values such As Charity giving. They study classical jewish literature Reading the Bible in the original for example by third or fourth Grade. They also learn about modern Israel partly through song and dance. A we teach an identity with Israel a explained Epstein. A but we teach loyalty to this country As Well As to Israel. The identification is religious not National. We Are not indic a we Are not orthodox enough for the orthodox a said Academy president Hart hasten a but to the Reform we Are he too prefers to Call the Academy three teachers at the Academy Are orthodox and the jewish Community has no official plans to protest the visit of six russian Church leaders in Indianapolis on March 1, although the Indianapolis Baptist Temple has planned a protest rally. The jewish Community relations Council and the anti defamation league of by Nai by Rith have jointly decided that the Best course is instead to raise the issues that need to be raised with these churchmen on a personal basis and to get their responses on the record. Members of the jewish Community have been invited to two private receptions for the churchmen on sunday and monday evenings. These individuals have been encouraged to attend according to Robert Gordon with the full understanding that their presence does not condone the russian position regarding jewish emigration out of Russia. It is rather a question of extending to the russians the same hospitality that was extended to american churchmen visiting Russia Gordon explained. A we have contacted both jews and christians who will be at these receptions Quot Gordon said a and we Are satisfied they will raise the issues that need to be raised. These issues must be responded to if the churches in Russia Are to maintain a moral posture and not be viewed As an Extension of the briefly. Gordon outlined the issues As follows As a signer in 1943 of the Universal declaration of human rights which guarantees the right of emigration How can Russia deny exit visas to about 100,000 jews who have sought to leave what efforts has the russian Church both Catholic and protestant made to convey to the government its moral responsibility to adhere to the declaration of human rights further on an ecumenical level what efforts has the clergy in Russia made to help those seeking to emigrate Sabbath everyone wears something White on fridays and at lunchtime the Sabbath is welcomed with blessings and prayers.

A the teachers know me and everyone is a everybody helped us when we were new Here a added Leora and Liana Batinsky. A they were really a hebrew is hard a said Kim Selby a but the holidays Are fun. A purim is a Good Holiday a joined in Andy Melrose. The Academy founded in 1971 with an enrolment of 22, Calls itself a traditional rather than an orthodox school. Still Many of its teachers come from torah ume Sora the National association of hebrew Day schools. Food is Kosher and Yarmulke Are worn in the building. Although the Academy is housed in by Nai torah this is a business arrangement and not an indication of affiliation says Epstein. He estimates about one third of the students Are from by Nai torah congregation and nearly the same number Are from unaffiliated families. Rabbi Gray was an impetus behind the school he says but now he is a just one of the one is not jewish. A we Are fighting the connotations of a private school and the feeling that somehow the Academy will make children a less most of the students Here were not taken out of private schools a hasten added.
