Yiddish Teachers' Union. The Yidisher Lerer Fareyn was a professional association in Vilna which promoted the interests of its member teachers.  Founded in 1915, it was ideologically associated with the Yiddish secular schools known as the TSYSHO schools.  At first, the YLF membership was comprised of Yiddish secular teachers.  Eventually, it represented the interests of teachers in Hebrew and religious schools as well.  The YTU lobbied for higher salaries and led teachers' strikes against the Vilna Kehillah (Community Board).  It also ran a teachers' placement service and maintained a sick fund for members. The YLF was active until the outbreak of World War II.
