Hebrew translation: Tarbut - foundry of national consciousness
"Students in the Tarbut schools in Poland learned Hebrew and a modern Zionist spirit. Many leaders of the Jewish community in the Land of Israel received their education in these institutions. The Tarbut movement in Poland was one of the most striking manifestations of national reawakening on foreign land. It was an exemplary educational movement which typified the longing of Diaspora youth for renewal, for new experiences, for fashioning a new Jewish character. (1930s)"
