Non-Sectarian Summer Vacation School

By Oscar Leonard

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), August 1915

In the past, the St. Louis school board had run a summer school program that offered enrichment education, including trades and sewing, and recreation to the children of the area. In the last year, it discontinued the program. Dismayed by this loss, the Jewish Educational Alliance, after unsuccessfully lobbying the board to change its decision, undertook to establish an alternative program, open for all and attended by about half Jews and half non-Jews, housed in a local public school. The author describes the creation, structure, and success of that program. Bulletin of the National Conference of Jewish Charities, 6:1
