November 29, 1908 - The Hebrew Free School Does an Excellent Work

On May 25, 1889 the Hebrew Educational Society was organized in response to a need clearly recognized by the Jewish community of Newark. Practically no provision had been made for the instruction of Jewish children in the Hebrew language and literature other than that which was given in the larger synagogues of the city. The Plaut Memorial Hebrew Free School was established on the corner of Prince and Spruce Streets. In 1913 the school was overflowing with 900 students.
