Judaism and Hyphenism

By Samuel Hirshberg

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), April 1916

The author argues against the proposal that Yiddish should be taught, after hours, at American public schools. He concedes that it is a legally fair proposal, since Italian and other languages are taught in this way, but insists that the deliberate preservation of a foreign language is destructive to Americanization.
