For it is universally admitted that a proper Jewish education means the extinction of ignorance, of idleness, of pauperism, and of prejudices from within and without; and therefore the Council hope that many friends of education will come forward to take a beneficent part in this work of civilisation. It should be borne in mind that every half-guinea contributed to the present income of the Association will enable the Council to provide education for an additional child.
