Modern Day School records, 1958-1966

Oakland’s Modern Day School was founded in 1957, an outgrowth of the Hebrew day school movement. Its purpose was to introduce grade school children to a new curriculum that combined Jewish and secular education with an emphasis on the student’s social responsibility and on his/her Jewish heritage and religion.

The collection consists of administrative materials from Oakland’s Modern Day School dating from 1958 through 1966. Included are correspondence, constitution and by-laws, brochures, a meeting minute book, and some lists of board members and staff.
