Thanks to the efforts of the Rev. Dr. L W. Slotki, all the London Jewish evacuees in Fleetwood are now receiving Hebrew instruction in the schools they attend. Dr. Slotki obtained this privilege for the Manchester and Salford children about a year ago and this has now been extended to the London children after an interview with the Director of Education for Lancashire. Divine service for the Manchester and Salford and London evacuees are held every Saturday under the auspices of the Manchester Talmud Torah Schools at the Men's Fireside, Mount Road, Fleetwood.

Slotki visited, last week, the reception areas of Fleetwood, Cleveleys, and Norbreck, where he inspected the schools in which Hebrew instruction is given by teachers of the Hebrew Education Board for the Manchester area. Dr. Slotki was able to secure the introduction of Hebrew instruction for the Jewish children attending Highfield College.
