jo me gracluafing i CAM of I9 6 The class of 1946 is the twenty-eighth to complete its high school course of studies in Talmudical Academy since its founding in September, 1915. Since the first graduating class in 1919, which consisted of but a mere six students, nearly fifteen hundred young men have gone forth from these hallowed walls to take their N-' places alongside the hundreds of thousands graduated from the public and private high schools in our great metropolis in the same period of time. If it were merely a question of numbers, there would be very little reason to become enthusiastic about 1500 graduates from Tal- mudical Academy as against hundreds- of thousands from the other schools. But, fortunately, it is not quan- tity-a mere question of numbers-that determines tlie value of a school or measures its contribution to the welfare of its community or its people, but rather the quality of its graduates, their achievements after leaving their Alma Mater. lt is precisely in this respect that Talmudical Academy, despite its relatively small num- ber of graduates, stands out as a beacon of shining light. In a recent tabulation of the graduates of Talmudical Academy, the astounding facts came to light that upwards of ninety per cent of its graduates go on to college and that nearly seventy per cent complete their college education and obtain the baccalaureate degrees. This represents many- fold the number from other high schools. Another discovery gleaned from the records, and this one is of special significance to our people, is that a large number of our boys-a little over forty per cent have gone on, either in our Yeshiva or in other Jewish institutions of learning, to become Rabbis, teachers and administrators in Hebrew and parochial schools. Many are in the legal professiong quite a few are teachers and supervisors in our public elementary and high schoolsg some are physicians and dentistsg a few are college and university instructors and professorsg a large number are in business and in the trades. In short. the Jewish training and the point of view that these boys received in our in- stitution have exerted a potent infiuence upon every stratum of Jewish life in America and have served as a leaven in awakening the jewish consciousness of our brethren throughout the land. It devolves upon you, the graduates of 19-l-6, to continue this splendid tradition and to follow in the footsteps of your predecessors. During your four year stay in our high school you have been trained in heart and mind in the tenets of our Torah and practices of our people. You have also been given a thorough grounding in the rudiments of the arts and sciences in preparation for whatever you may choose to follow. You have been taught how to live both as a good jew and a loyal and devoted American, and it is to be hoped that your future life will reflect credit and honor upon our people and your Alma Mater.

jo we graduafing add O! I9 6 My dear friends : You entered the Yeshiva at a time when the entire world was i11 flames, and you are fortunate to graduate at a time when peace is fmally declared. But, you must bear in mind that the Hebrew word for "peace" also means perfection, for we cannot experience a genuine sense of peace unless we learn to become more perfect in our thinking, and in our ways of life. There cannot be any inner peace unless we search for the improvement of our moral personalities. As Yeshiva men, you have been instructed that peace and perfection can come only through divine knowledge and Torah-living. Moreover, your secular learning must be in harmony with our traditional philosophy of life. Wliatevei' you may be or do, in the future, you should remember to abide by the mode of living and thinking as taught to you within the four walls of the Yeshiva. I congratulate all of you, and may the Almighty guide your path. Sincerely yours, Siuiuiii, ljxnniix le'rcs1'c1u11t liirc
