Kindergarten on the South Side

Submitted by Cathy Felix

When I was growing up on the South Side in the 50s, the neighborhood was almost all Jewish. But many of the teachers at Horace Mann Elementary School were Catholic.

I came home from kindergarten and told my mother the wonderful story of the Jesus child that my teacher had told us. Mom asked if the teacher had told us he was Jewish.
