With the growth and development of American Jewry, the problem of Jewish education has become more and more intense. The things already accomplished in the field of Jewish education and the important problems still to be worked out are presented forcefully by the Reverend Doctor Julius H. Greenstone in his article on the subject of Jewish Education in America, published in this volume. Dr. Greenstone has analyzed the responsibilities of American Jewry and its opportunities for familiarizing the younger generation" with events that have made Israel a great people and with the literature wherein Israel's greatness is embodied."
The memoir on the Jewish population in the United States, by Dr. Joseph Jacobs, Director of the Bureau of Statistics of the American Jewish Committee, will doubtless attract much attention. His new estimate fixes the Jewish population of the United States on July 1, 1914, at 2,933,374, and according to Dr. Jacobs," by January 1, 1915, the Jews of the United States will reach the three million mark, or, in other words, at that date, one out of every thirty Americans, and in the urban districts one out of every sixteen, will be a Jew.”
I wish to express my profound gratitude to Miss Henrietta Szold, Doctor Cyrus Adler, Louis Marshall, Esq., and Judge Mayer Sulzberger, for their important aid and most helpful
suggestions in connection with this issue of the YEAR BOOK. I also wish to make acknowledgment to Miss Rose A. Herzog and Mr. Harry Schneiderman for their painstaking and valuable assistance in the preparation of this volume.
New York, August 10, 1914.
