The Jewish People's School emerged out of a coalition of Yiddish and Labour Zionits, known as National Radical School, which, in 1918, was renamed the Peretz School. The Jewish Peoples School developed out of debates over the role of Zionism and the preservation of Yiddish as opposed to the adoption of modern Hebrew. The Jewish People's Folks School remained an alternative to traditional synagogue schools, but retained a more Zionist and slightly more religious orientation, compared to the Peretz School. It existed between 1941 and 1963 in a variety of locations in Montreal. Click on the link above to learn more.
