RETROSPECT.

from outlying localities, who afterwards, in consequence of the thorough training they have received, thrive wherever they settle, a desire for the establishment of new Schools is thus considerably increased. There are in the East still many central cities which might and should be benefited by the formation of adequate Jewish Schools. The want of such institutions is frequently brought to the cognisance of the Council. Zealous friends of education implore the Anglo -Jewish Association not to let the children of the poor remain exposed to the misfortunes of ignorance and idleness, to the temptations of the conversionists, and other serious dangers.
To such appeals the Council have not turned a deaf ear. They have taken energetic steps in response to the entreaties they have received. Some of these measures, however, from the very nature of the evils to be met, cannot be more than hinted at in a published report. But there are other appeals to which the utmost publicity should be given. Such, for instance, are appeals for the opening of Schools for primary instruction and the teaching of handicrafts. The founding of such Schools is tantamount to the founding of a good and a respected position for future men and women. On their behalf the Council invite the co-operation of every member of the community who cherishes the blessings of education, that they should bear their part of the burden of the Anglo-Jewish Association in carrying those blessings into homes from which the sad effects of oppression must be removed, to make way for the prospects of a brighter future.
