Hebrew Technical Institute (New York City)

Hebrew Technical Institute was a vocational High School in New York City. The school was founded on January 7, 1884[1] and closed in 1939.[2]

After completing two years at the school, students could specialize in wood-working, pattern making, metal working, instrument making, mechanical drawing, architectural drawing, wood carving, free-hand drawing or applied electricity.

The school was founded after three Hebrew charity organizations formed a committee to promote technical education for the many Jewish immigrants arriving in New York at the time. The school originally opened at 206 East Broadway. After a number of relocations, the school moved into 34 and 36 Stuyvesant Street.[1]
