    ... Their destinations were such far away strange places as New York, Johannesburg, the Argentine, Hungary, London, Montevideo and the Holy Land. Zionist Suwałk, it can be noted, was the first community to actually send envoys to Pa-lestine to purchase land. It should also be remembered that the immigrants from Suwałk were in the forefront in the migration from Rastern Europe and that it was as a result of their influence and aid that the orientation of the Jews in the New World changed from a German and Scphardic influence to one of East European domination. The sons of Suwałk helped start a Jewish press in New York, aided in the formation of the Hias, underwrote and founded New York's Beth El Hospital and Su-walker Schules and were responsible for countless other civic and community projects ...

This volume is a memorial book dedicated not only to those who lived in the Suwałk vicinity, or those who grew up there, or studied there, or served their military duty there, or migrated from there or even perished there, or the descendants of all the foregoing, but it is a lxiok dedicated to World Jewry, not only of this generation but of all generations past. It is a book written with a very familiar theme and a recurring history. The story is as old as the Bible itself.

This institution was unique in that it was administered entirely by boys be-twecn the ages of 12 and 18.
