The Beginning Of The Gymnasia

Chaim Horvitz

Translated by David Goldman

        Together with economic pride in the 1920s, there was the need for more progressive educational institutions than those existing in town until then. The values of cultural and linguistic autonomy for national minorities penetrated society. This originated in all kinds of international within the League of Nations at the time. All over Jewish Bessarabia all types of educational institutions sprouted up, both elementary and high schools, where the students were taught in Hebrew. Yedinitz was not one of the fist towns in this field.

Studies, Discipline And General Spirit

Attorney Meir Weissman

        It's possible to now state without any exaggeration that the studies at the gymnasia were at a relatively high level in comparison with other similar schools in surrounding towns. It's possible that the external exams that the graduates were required to pass every year in the presence of the examining teachers at the government gymnasia in Khotin were a primary factor in preserving this level.
