225 years of Jewish school in Berlin:
10 years Jewish Secondary School Berlin
Moses Mendelssohn (1729-1786), who came as 13year old boy from Dessau to Berlin, posed the question how a modern Jewish school system should look like. How could the implementation of enlightenment values be in a Jewish education?
The Jewish Free School was founded in 1778 by students of Moses Mendelssohn. Besides religion, Jewish history and Hebrew, also secular topics such as geography, biology, languages were part of the schedule, which were open also to children from less privileged families and until 1818 even to non-Jewish boys. The school fee was calculated upon the income of the parents. 1862 the school moved to the building in Große Hamburger Strasse 27, which was reconstructed extensively in 1905.
