Introduction Increasingly, we have come to realize that the Jewish Edu- cation of our children has suf- fered from neglect. One of the Ynptoms of this neglect is the ck of standards in our school, tTh fur y:wPil a de f :iach erdd COUncil of Greater Seattle, is esbarking on a program de- ,gned to elevate the level of oewish education in our com- munity. Among its initial pro- arns is the Institute of Jewish dies for the training of teach- ers and prospective teachers for Our Jewish schools.
