The studies in Jewish education by Miriam Eisenstein and
Louis Katzoff traced aspects of the philosophy of Jewish educa-
tion. The study of Hebrew in American universities was treated
interestingly by Abraham I. Katsh.
Several volumes of poetry by American Jews and Jewesses
have been issued. Among the Hebrew classics published in Eng-
lish translation were: Maimonides’ Code,
Pirke Aboth
, and the
Passover Haggadah.
The study of Yiddish was made easier for
Americans by the publication of two new manuals.
The assortment and variety of books of Jewish interest reflect
favorably on the cultural vitality of the Jewish community in
the United States.
