Tarbut Schools were a Zionist secular educational system that spread throughout the Ukraine after the 1917 revolution. Its founders, who were members of Hoveve Sefat 'Ever (Lovers of the Hebrew Language), changed its name to Tarbut, which means "Culture".
The aim of Tarbut was to promote the establishment of Hebrew schools and public cultural activities. All classes, from kindergarten to college, were taught in Hebrew.
However, the Tarbut educational system did not last very long; it was perceived as being inconsistent with the Bolshevik Revolution. The Tarbut program did persist in Poland until the start of World War II.

The list was developed by Aharon Weisberg, the head of Israel's Rovno Organization. The Rovno Archive is the source of the material.
