Wil Ham Bookwalter Julius continued on Pago 3 see another letter Page 3 a Beth Al Zedeck committee opposed to a congregational hebrew school sent out a letter this week to Beth Al members aimed a to present the facts regarding rabbi William p. Green Feldus yom kippur night proposal to create such a school. While the letter was signed Only a the Beth Al committee opposed to a congregation school a co chairman of the steering committee Isadore Katz revealed that the names of the individual members were not used because there Wasny to enough room on the 14 Inch Page. Katz said however they will be used in the next in a series of letters. He explained a the purpose of our letter is to present the facts regarding the Community and the congregational school to the members of Bethel. It is my belief that the members when acquainted with All the True facts will find it hard to go along with the idea of a congregational school. My Only Hope is that the people will find from our facts the wherewithal to question co chairman of the committee which includes 18 Bethel members four of whom Are on the Beth Al Board is Jack Nelson. The committee which is underwriting the costs of the mailings consists of Gus Domont George Samson Lewis Levy David Hollander Morris Bryan Albert Reuben or. Marion Hodes Abe Unger n. William Weinstein Julius Maurer Abe Miller Rose Nelson Halina Hodes Leonore h. Katz Betty Bryan and Rose Levy. Domont Hollander Weinstein and Maurer Are Board members. Katz said that additional names would probably be added to the list in the near future. A the letter which discussed the subject of the proposed schools Cost revealed that with an average Cost of $200 per Pupil per year at the jewish Edu cation assn., Many Beth Al children who attend pay less than the $125 per year tuition because their parents cannot afford it. Also against the Contention that teachers salaries would be the Only substantial new Cost in the proposed school the letter countered that it would be difficult a to believe that maintenance costs will not be substantially increased if several Hundred children would use Beth Al during the As to bus transportation the letter asked if the children could be brought to Beth Al during the week by ears with the same ease they Are transported on sunday a we think not. The Burden of the transportation will be on a he mothers assuming that they have a car available a it said. With the Assumption that assistant rabbi Harry z. Sky would function As school supervisor the committee believes that Eitnier the school or his duties would suffer under such an arrange ment. A it is fallacious to believe that Rabby sky can adequately fulfil 1 ii o supervisory responsibilities of an afternoon school without neglecting the rabbinical duties a required by a congregation of members. And a third Man would inevitably have to be touching on the shortage of qualified hebrew teachers the committee contended that Quot it is most unlikely that Beth Al would be Able to hire qualified teachers for Low the letter concluded with a reference to Louisville. failure in experimenting with a congregational school system resulting in a doubling of educational costs. Louisville has now returned to the Community hebrew school which is functioning Verv satisfactorily now the letter said. When asked for their opinion of the letter both Beth Al Board a resident Ben Paller and rabbi Greenfeld had a no at interpretation or. Hollander differs with bulletin s Story Beth Al Zedeck Board member David Hollander challenged this week an interpretation of Board action on a proposed congregational hebrew school As Given in the oct. 27 Issue of Beth Al Speaks. As stated in the weekly bulletin a most of the members of the Board recognized the fact that in order to give an adequate and integrated jewish education to our child in in a school under the auspices of our congregation was not Only necessary but a i it a Hollander said a the official report of the Board meeting of Temple Beth Al in which the article in Beth Al Speaks a aboard votes unanimously a differs in several important ways from the actual happenings of that evening of oct. 23. A number of Board members were quite surprised at the interpretation placed on their actions. A the facts Are these in the course of discussion the original motion to enlarge the school was objected to strenuously and the amendments offered the ones to refer the matter to the congregation themselves Are evidence of the extreme dissension on the part of these Board members. A there was Little or no discussion on the merits per be of the congregational school because the opposition to the motion creating the school was so Strong that the discussion entered mainly on the question of referring this matter to the membership for their opinion As to the approval or disapproval of the congregational school.
