Fostering Agriculture among Jewish Youth

WHEREAS it has become necessary to further the material interests of our co-religionists in the United States, to foster, follow and preserve agriculture and its kindred branches; and,

WHEREAS the happiness, prosperity and independence of our rising generation are greatly dependent upon this issue; and,

WHEREAS some of the charitable institutions directly under our control, such as orphan asylums, could at once be made to form a nucleus best adapted to reach this end; therefore be it

RESOLVED that a committee be appointed by this body to confer with the officers of the various institutions under their charge for the purpose of discussing the feasibility of placing such institutions upon farming lands, so as to be enabled to instill into our youth a course of theoretical and practical knowledge of farming and a desire for agricultural pursuits.
