History Biographical
The United Talmud Torahs were founded in 1896. Rabbi A.M. Ashinsky established the first Talmud Torah class on 130 Cadieux St. In 1903 the Talmud Torah was housed in its own building at 140 St. Urbain street, when it came under the directorship of Rabbi Hirsch Cohen. In 1912 the school admitted girls and was incorporated under the name of "The Hebrew Free School of Montreal". In 1917 the language of instruction changed from Yiddish to Hebrew. Several Hewbrew schools, which were spread over the city of Montreal were amalgamated in 1917 as The United Talmud Torahs. In 1930 the building on St. Joseph Blvd. was erected and in 1935 The United Talmud Torahs became a day school. Since 1970 The French language is a significant language of instruction. At present the United Talmud Torahs consist of elementary school and Herzliah High Schools with branched in Snowdon and St. Laurent.
