RESOLUTION ON JEWISH EDUCATION PASSED BY 35TH COUNCIL

Whereas, The essential and indispensable character of Jewish Education is accepted as axiomatic; and

Whereas, The educational needs in our Congregations were clearly and cogently set forth at this Council; and

Whereas, The Boards of some of our Congregations have not made adequate provision for an educational program;

Now, therefore, Be It Resolved:

  1. That the Union of American Hebrew Congregations reaffirm the need of religious education as an essential element in Jewish life;

  2. That the Union of American Hebrew Congregations declare that religious education be not limited to the religious school, but that the Congregational program be extended to include youth and adult education;

  3. That the Union of American Hebrew Congregations recommend to the Board of every affiliated Congregation that adequate funds be made available for this sacred and essential purpose;

  4. That the Union of American Hebrew Congregations recommend that Congregations, wherever possible, establish the position of Director of Religious Education.
