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.

Who can now say, wifh gay nonchalance

Bur I knew l'd pull Through
It wasn'f half so bad.
