No less than a dozen reasons
have been advanced through the
ages for the four cups of wine that
we drink. The early Talmudic
Scholars felt that they were a
toast to the four expressions of
redemption mentioned in the bib-
lical Book of Exodus in regard to
the exodus from Egypt. They are:
"And I shall cause to go forth;
and I shall save; and I shall re-
deem; and I shall take them (unto
me)". These can easily be under-
stood as the four steps to freedom.
These can also be related to four
similar expressions found in the
Book of Ezekial with regard to the
redemption of the future yet to
come. They are: "And I will take
them out from the peoples, and
gather them from the countries,
and bring them to their own land
and feed them upon the moun-
tains, etc." Many late preachers
have associated these ideas with
e.i. "And I shall bring". In the
G a onic literature the famous
Sherira Gaon is cited as claiming
that the four cups represent the
four periods of exile while the
fifth would indicate the final sal-
vation. In certain manuscripts it
is said that Rabbi Joel regarded
the five cups as relating to the
five empires that enslaved Israel.
The famous Levush commentary
of the Orach Chayim is quoted as
claiming that the fifth cup repre-
sents the cup of future redemp-
tion. All the early masters of Jew-
ish Codes such as the Rif, Rashi,
Maimonodies had a high regard
for the use of the fifth cup. The
famous Maharal of Prague gives
a fully detailed description of the
liturgy surrounding the fifth cup.
From the foregoing it is quite
obvious that the fifth cup was in
many instances part of the Seder

Interfaith Chapel Honors Memory Of Four Heroic Chaplains
Shown above is the mural in the Interfaith Chapel at Philadelphia which dramatically depicts
the handing by the chaplains of their life preservers to soldiers during the sinking of the troopship
the S. S. Dorchester on February 3, 1943 off of Greenland.
The chaplains were John P. Washington, Roman Catholic; Alexander D. Goode, Jewish; and
George L. Fox and Clark V. Poling, Protestants. Each was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross
posthumously. Rabbi Goode is shown above the first man to the left by railing.
The Interfaith Chapel was built at a cost of $300,000 contributed by the public. It has a revolving
altar with each section containing the religious appertances of the Catholic, Protestant and Jewish
faiths respectively, and can seat 200 persons.
President Truman delivered the dedicatory address recently.

The Barriers Are Coming Down!
Here are some facts on the progress of the
Anti-Defamation League's Crack-the-Quota drive
The doctor telephoned ADL's
Chicago office. He sounded ex-
cited; he had good news to tell
and he felt that the League should
be the first to hear it.
For many years he had been
associated with the medical school
of an outstanding Midwestern uni-
versity. He had once been recom-
mended for the job of department
chairman. He waited and waited
for confirmation until the day the
outgoing chairman took him to
lunch. The chairman had embar-
rassing news-the doctor wasn't
going to get the appointment be-
cause he was Jewish.
That was three years ago. Short-
ly afterward, ADL launched its
campaign against discrimination
in colleges. The doctor knew of
the campaign but had little hope
for its success. Furthermore, he
didn't think that it particularly
It was in December, 1950, that
the doctor telephoned. He wanted
to announce two things. He had
just been appointed chairman of
his department. And he felt that
the change in his college's attitude
was due, in part at least, to ADL's
The doctor's tribute-and there
are many others-are testimonials
to the worth of the educator's con-
ferences inspired and held by
ADL in cooperation with the
American Council on Education.

in Chicago in November, 1949.

cago in November, 1950. A third
regional conference is scheduled
for Denver next month and will
involve colleges in all the Rocky
In the space of a year and a
half-a single tick of the clock in
the calendar of social change -
there has been increasing evidence
that the barriers of bigotry in
higher education are breaking
In October, 1950, the College
Entrance Board eliminated the so-
called "choice rule." This rule
compelled high school graduates
taking entrance exams to desig-
nate first, second and third prefer-
ences of the college they wanted
to attend. Rejection by a first-
choice college frequently preju-
duced the student's case with sec-
ond and third choice schools.
Elimination of this rule means a
marked decrease in the number of
applications minority group stu-
dents will have to make.
Queries in application blanks
themselves often are guides to
whether a school maintains dis-
criminatory barriers. There is a
noticeable trend to eliminate po-
tentially discriminatory questions,
e.g., questions regarding religion,
race, color, birthplace, etc. As a
result of ADL's discussions with
college officials throughout the
country, more than 50 schools
have deleted such questions in the
past six months.
Students play an ever greater
role in shattering barriers. In the
past, they sometimes have been
inhibited, sometimes wildly ag-
gressive, in pressing for demo-
cratic campus policies. Now, since
educators themselves have taken
a hand, students have found their
sanction and direction partici-
pating with educators, even plan-
ning a major national conference
of their own (with ADL support)
to be held this spring at Earlham
The ADL-ACE campaign has
been aided immeasureably by
other forces at work. Some of
these forces are apparent in the
fact that today there are colleges
and universities in the 17 South-
ern states (where the dual system
of education operates) which have
for the first time in their histories
admitted Negroes. One thousand
Negroes are now attending classes
with white students in the South;
200 of them in institutions which
until last year were strictly Jim
Crow. Some Southern educators
still warn of "tragic consequences"
if Negroes and whites are allowed
to mingle in the classrooms. But

vice to Jewish Community Cen-
ters and to Jewish GIs in the
armed forces, the National Jewish
Welfare Board has made available
a 102-page book called "The Jew-
ish Holidays-A Guide to Their
Origin, Significance and Observ-
ance". From this volume, compiled
by Dr. Mordecai Soltes, and a
supplementary program manual
on Passover, there has been de-
veloped this Passover quiz, one
of a series on the Jewish festivals
This quiz can be both educa-
tional and entertaining in many
settings. Jewish Community Cen-
ters use it in a variety of pro-
grams. JWB armed services work-
ers and Jewish chaplains use it in
programming for Jewish service-
men. But the quiz can be equally
useful to the alert host or hostess
as a new and intriguing post-
Seder diversion. Try it out on
your Passover guests.-Editor.

clares Walter White of the Nation-

All these issues were discussed
in the chapter, "Cracking the
Quota," in ADL's survey, A Mea-
sure of Freedom. To reach as
many academic leaders as possible
with all available data on discrim-
ination in higher education, the
chapter was reprinted in pamph-
let form and sent to top officials
and board chairmen of 1,200 lib-
eral arts and professional colleges
and to the heads of all state edu-
cation departments. The comment
from Edgar C. Cumings, president
of Coe College, Cedar Rapids,
Iowa, is typical: "It seems to me

The president of a Pennsylvania
college replied, saying that his
school rejected all religious and

he said, he couldn't understand
why "place of birth" and "father's

strued as potentially discrimina-
tory questions. He now has a de-
tailed explanation of how such in-
formation can be misused and he
agrees that these questions will be
deleted from his college's applica-

The Chronicle invites correspondence on subjects of interest to
the Jewish people and the general community, but does not neces-
sarily endorse the views expressed by the contributors.
OUR THIRTIETH MILESTONE
In newspaper language, the word "thirty" has a sig-
nificant meaning. It is usually placed at the bottom of an
article to indicate the end of the story. But for us, it means
the completion of an important milestone and the start
of a new chapter, we hope. Any weekly having a record
of thirty years of continued publication, without missing
an issue, is an achievement in itself, especially in the case
of a Jewish newspaper. The road that a Jewish paper
must travel is not an easy one. Paid advertising, which is
the life-blood of any journal, is a constant problem for a
Jewish weekly because the Jewish-owned department
stores and other firms who are the biggest space users,
are usually, unwilling to include Jewish newspapers in
their regular budgets. Not because they are unprofitable
mediums but they seem to be partial to daily papers or
to organs of other religious faiths.
In some of the larger cities, especially in the East,
this situation does not obtain and the Jewish papers there
are used liberally by the leading merchants.
Thus, any paper that does not enjoy the frequent
patronage of the big stores, has an uphill climb. Add to
this, the sky-rocketing costs of publishing. It is therefore
of no surprise to us when a paper falls by the wayside. Of
course, the community is much poorer and the greater
loser in such an instance. Take the case of the Omaha
Jewish Press published by David Blacker at his own print-
ing plant. Here was a splendid weekly, very capably
edited, which recently closed its doors after 23 years of
existence. Mr. Blacker, the owner, announced, "with much
regret and a heavy heart" that due to rising publication
costs and a decline in advertising, he was compelled to
quit. However, he turned his paper over to the Omaha
Federation of Jewish Services, who, realizing the valued
job the Press had performed, hopes to continue publishing
it. Under its supervision, the question naturally arises,
could such a paper be truly impartial? Certainly, it can
not be as independent as when it was privately owned.
There are some who feel that it is the business of a federa-
tion primarily to raise and dispense funds.
When the day comes that the big Jewish advertisers
demonstrate their loyalty to Jewish causes, including their
press, and give it effectual support, then a remarkable
transformation will take place as to its size and perhaps
contents. The Jewish public can do something to bring
it about by urging the stores they patronize to advertise
in their paper.
The Chronicle has survived a period encompassing
three world-shaking conflicts with their resultant economic
crises, and God willing, we shall continue as best we can,
the dissemination and advancement of Jewish and Ameri-
can ideals. We are thankful to our many loyal friends,
the subscribers and the advertisers who have given us
their encouraging support and who have made this issue
possible. We shall continue to serve the best interests of
the community without fear or favor, and to promote
better understanding with our Christian neighbors. We
shall ever strive for improvement and to deserve the title
of "The Spokesman of Indiana Jewry."
-Morris Strauss, Editor and Publisher.
The Festival of Passover
On Friday evening, April 20, Jews throughout the
world will begin the celebration of their annual festival
of Passover (Pesach), which commemorates the wondrous
deliverance of the Jews from Egyptian bondage according
to the story told in the 12th Chapter of the Book of Exodus.
Beginning at sun-down April 20, the 14th day of the
Hebrew month of Nisan, and continuing, among the Re-
form Jews for a period of seven days, ending April 27, and
among their Orthodox brethren for eight days, Passover
will be celebrated as a festival of freedom. All the cere-
monial observances incident to the feast are symbolic of
the idea of liberty.
The festival is ushered in on the opening evening of
the feast with the Seder, at which the head of the family
recounts to the members of his household and their guests
seated about the table, the wondrous events that led up to
the Jews' deliverance from the hands of their Egyptian
masters. This account is known as the Haggadah (story).
Especially symbolic of the festival is the unleavened bread
or Matso, leavened food being prohibited to the Jew dur-
ing the festival week. The Matso symbolizes the fact that
when, finally, the Jews were permitted to leave Egypt,
they were driven out in such haste that they did not have
time to leaven their bread.
Other symbols of the feast to be found upon the Seder
table are wine, the symbol of gladness, which is a part of
the free man; bitter herbs, betokening the bitterness of
slavery, and a dainty mixture of apples, nuts, etc., which
is variously interpreted, but may be accepted as standing
for the sweetness of freedom. The lamb-bond which is on
the table reminds the Jews of the Paschal lamb which was
sacrificed by the faithful Israelites in Egypt, its blood be-
ing sprinkled upon their door posts. When the Angel of
Death passed through the land, cutting down the first-
born in every Egyptian household, so runs the tradition,
the first-born was spared in every home on whose lintels
the lamb's blood had been sprinkled.
In all synagogues and temples there will be special
services on the first and last days of the festival for the
Reform group, and on the first two and last two days for
the Conservative and Orthodox groups. Sermons having
to do with Jews' love of liberty will be preached in the
houses of worship.

THE INDIANA JEWISH CHRONICLE 15
A condensed review of Local, State and World Events of the past thirty
years, taken from the files of The Indiana Jewish Chronicle
(All Rights Reserved)
We believe this is the first time in the history of the Jewish
Press that an extensive record of events transpiring during the past
three decades, has ever been published by a Jewish weekly.
This painstaking research, covering most of The Chronicle is-
sues available since this paper was founded, involved the burning
of much "midnight oil." It is set forth in chronological order.
I am greatly indebted to my assistant, Miss Chris Castanias, whom
I appropriately call, "my girl Friday," for her diligent and speedy
work which helped to complete the difficult task. While time and
space did not permit the inclusion of every important item, especial-
ly a number of Indiana happenings, we believe that a fairly accurate
picture of what has transpired of Jewish interest during the past
generation, can be visualized.-Editor.

T-V Keeping Jews from Sabbath Service
New York-According to a study made by the United Synagogue
of America, on synagogue attendance, it was revealed that tele-
vision is becoming a competitor and a distraction which keeps
Jews from attending Friday evening services.
Jerusalem-In order to thwart any efforts by the U.N. toward secur-
ing international administration of the sacred areas, the Jordan
Government appointed Ragheb Nashahibi as "Supreme Guardian
of the Holy Places."
State Of Georgia Passes Anti-Mask Bill

campaign by civic, church and human relations groups to un-
mask the hooded Klu Klux Klan.
Philadelphia-A plea for religious unity in the United States was
voiced by President Truman in dedicating a memorial chapel
here recently to four World War II Chaplains who gave their

retary of Defense George C. Marshall and the Secretaries of the
Army, Navy and Air Force.

become Minister of Finance in this country. He is Horacio Lafer,

Jerusalem-The Jewish Agency has prepared plans for the movement
and reception of immigrants in Israel for only the next three
months. The three-month project is expected to bring some
45,000 immigrants into the country.
New York-A draft program designed to insure the steady flow of
Jewish chaplains to minister to Jewish men in the U.S. Armed
Services and to build up a reserve force of chaplains in the
event of war was announced by Rabbi Aryeh Lev, director of
religious activities of the National Jewish Welfare Board.
New York-The recent clemency action by U.S. authorities in Ger-
many, resulting in commutation of sentences of 89 war Nazi
criminals, represents a "mistaken tenderness toward the perpe-
trators of mass murder and other heinous crimes against human-
ity and democratic society," was the statement issued by a
number of major Jewish organizations to Secretary of State
Jerusalem-Little known music of oriental Jewish communities is
being recorded perhaps for the first time under the direction of
the Music Section of Israel's Ministry of Education and Culture.
New York-Israel's Premier David Ben Gurion will visit the United

ica, that the city council has passed a bill changing the name
of Dry Dock Street in the lower East Side to Szold Place, in
honor of the late Henrietta Szold, founder of Hadassah.

Behind the visit to these shores
on April 3 of Her Ladyship, the
Marchioness of Reading, one of
the world-famous Jewish women
of our generation who will make
the principal address dedicating
the new Stephen Wise Congress
House, is a profound Jewish hu-
man interest story of great poig-
nancy. Today this woman, bap-
tised at birth into the Church of
England, brought up by a Chris-
tian mother in a Christian home,
and a member of the highest rank
in the British Peerage outside of
the Royal Family itself, is a fore-
most leader of British and World
Jewry and an ardent Zionist who
chose the Jewish faith of her own
free will, made its trials her trials
and linked its fate with her own.
The Marchioness of Reading,
wife of one of the leaders of the
Liberal Party in the House of
Lords, daughter of a British peer
and Cabinet member, and daugh-
ter-in-law of a Viceroy of India,
was born Eva Mond. Her father,
Sir Alfred Mond, who was sub-
sequetnly raised to the peerage as
Lord Melchett, was a founder of
Imperial Chemicals, one of the
greatest industrial enterprises of
modern times, and a noted politi-
cal figure as well. As a result,
Eva Mond occupied one of the
highest positions in English so-
ciety, and from her earliest years
came into contact with the princi-
pal diplomatic and political lead-
ers of Britain. These associations
were even enhanced with her
marriage to the son of the famous
statesman and attorney who, as
Sir Rufus Isaacs, was the first
Jew to occupy the post of Attor-
ney General in Great Britain, and
subsequently as Lord Reading
held the outstanding posts of Lord
Chief Justice of England, British
Ambassador to Washington, and
Viceroy of India. Her husband, the
second Marquis of Reading, is in
his own right one of the leading
barristers in England and a fore-
most leader of the Liberal Party.
These associations and this
background gave Lady Reading
an unusually wide knowledge of
world affairs and problems includ-
ing those of the Jewish people.
And although she was an impor-
tant member of the Anglican
Church, she began to take a deep
interest in the fate of this sorely
tried people and its heroic strug-
gle for a homeland of its own in
It was Dr. Chaim Wiezmann,
now Israel's President, who
through her father, first awakened

this Jewish concern within her.
Dr. Weizmann brought Sir Alfred
Mond into the leadership of the
Zionist Movement immediately
following the issuance of the Bal-
four Declaration and it became a
case of like father, like daughter
in their common devotion to the
Zionist cause. At a crucial time,
Sir Alfred, as a leader of the Brit-
ish Zionist Movement, not only
gave support to the Zionist cause
on an impressive scale, both politi-
cally and financially, but acquired
land in Palestine itself. Here,
as a result of her frequent visits
to her father's pioneering estate
on the shores of the Sea of Gali-
lee, she learned the life and prob-
lems of Palestine and its Jewish
settlers immediately. In the 20s
and 30s, Lady Reading became
known as one of the leading pro-
tagonists of Zionism and carried
out her Zionist work throughout
As the shadow of Hitlerism be-
gan to darken the European scene,
Lady Reading and her brother,
Lord Melchett, became steadily
more immersed in Jewish affairs
and in the study of the history
and ideals of the Jewish people.
Still, public opinion throughout
Europe was no less electrified,
when in 1933, they were formally
received into the religious Jewish
community of Rabbi Maurice
Perlzweig of the London Liberal
Synagogue, now head of the In-
ternational Affairs Department of
the World Jewish Congress. Dur-
ing the tragic Hitler period, Lady
Reading was a leader of British
Jewish relief and served as na-
tional chairman of several cam-
paigns just as she had previously
served as chairman of the Keren
Hayesod in Great Britain. She did
heroic work in organizing efforts
to aid the refugees, and was vice-
chairman of the Children's Refu-
gee Movement which supported
10,000 orphan refugees. Lady
Reading brought to her work im-
portant abilities as a recognized
British expert in child welfare
who has won renown for her
books and articles on the subject.
During World War II, in fact, the
government invited her to act
as an advisol on child care, and
today she is responsible for one
of the finest Child Welfare Centers
and Training Schools in London.
With the foundation of the
British Section of the World Jew-
ish Congress in 1936, Lady Read-
ing soon became its President, a
post she has held ever since. In its
service, and that of Diaspora Jew-
ry, as a member of the Interna-
tional Executive of WJC, she has
visited Jewish communities in
many lands and has undertaken
missions to nations from Sweden
Like her brother, the late Lord
Melchett, Lady Reading has be-
come a symbol of immortal Juda-
ism. Her affirmative answer to
the call of the faith of her father's
ancestors was a source of inspira-
tion in one of the blackest episodes
of Jewish history. Her answer to
the Hitler scourge was to perform
an act of self-selection into its
peoplehood, of affirmation for its
beliefs and ideals, and of enlist-
ment for life-long service to safe-
guard its present, and ensure its

Exactly 70 years ago this week,
a new, tragic era in the long his-
tory of the Jewish people opened
with the bloody Passover pog-
roms of Czarist Russia. This de-
liberately organized set of riots,
in which violent death was dealt
to Jews in towns and villages
while Russian police stood idly
by, formed the first chapter in
the dreadful tale of modern, sci-
entific, government-aided or gov-

three-score-and-ten-years later, it
would, indeed, be wonderful to
be able to say that the awful
story is over for good and all,
that the Jewish people are at last
secure everywhere, that anti-
Semitism will never again be a
tool of power politics. But, un-
fortunately, we cannot say so with
As we prepare to celebrate the
festival of freedom, tens of thou-
sands of our brethren in the Mid-
dle East experience actual perse-
cution or know insecurity and
fear. An unrepentent, still poison-
ous Germany rises again in Eu-
rope. Zionism is a crime in parts
of Europe. Anti-Semitic propa-
ganda continues to be spread in
Latin America. The small and iso-
lated Jewish community of Aus-
tralia faces the threat of a flood
of Naziphile German immigration
capable of changing the very
character of democratic Australia.
At least, however, we are not
powerless today. The impotence
of 1881, when Jews of Russia
could not change their fate, has
given way to a degree of strength.
Out of the agony of this era of
persecution has risen the state of
Israel, a home, a refuge and an
inspiration. From the experience
of this era, too, we are beginning
to learn that unity is essential to
strength and to freedom. Today,

The basic contribution of the
World Jewish Congress to the
health of world Jewry in these
days of international tension has
been instant readiness to act
wherever danger arises or injus-

has intervened through the U.S.

Moslem lands, including riot-torn

United Nations in its efforts to
end statelessness. It has warned
again and again against the threat
of a revived Germany. It has
striven to protect the rights of
Jews and other minorities in Latin

for its program to ensure that the

Adath Israel Congreg
The principle of "cause and
effect" has its application not only
in the field of science but also
in the realm of human experi-
ence. Every action which we per-
form has its reaction as a counter-
part. This applies to our personal
behavior. When we eat excessive-
ly, the result is discomfort. If we
overtax our bodies, we are faced
with weakness, sickness and
sometimes even more tragic re-
sults follow. Even the pleasure
and joy of life itself has its cul-
mination in death and sorrow.
In our lives as members of hu-
man society, we find that the same
principle applies. One of our
great blessings, for that is what
it actually is, is peace. Under gen-
eral conditions we would say that
it is the norm of human life. How-
ever the history of mankind shows
h that this is not the case. Peace,
too, has its counterpart, which is
war. Peace has to be achieved and
cannot be taken for granted as
the normal behavior among hu-
The Holiday of Passover is ob-
served by Jews all over the world
to serve as a reminder that "free-
dom" is in the same category.
Freedom has its counterpart-
slavery, and is not to be taken for
granted, but rather freedom re-
quires many sacrifices in order to
be achieved. Passover reminds us
that God abhors slavery and that
the Jewish people cherishes its
The nature of freedom is such
that we do not appreciate it, ex-
cept when it is taken away from
us. Judaism however, reminds us
constantly that we must cherish
our freedom. Without it man can-
not contribute his best to human
welfare. A person who willingly
enslaved himself was looked upon
with disdain. In the Book of Exo-
dus we read that if a man did
not accept his freedom when off-
ered to him, he was to have his
ear pierced. This was a sign of
shame and disgrace because when
given the opportunity to be free
it was not accepted.
The problem that faces the
democratic peoples of the world
today is how to retain and pre-
serve the freedom that we as
Americans and Jews have strug-
gled to achieve through our re-
ligion, our way of life and our
many sacrifices. It would be the
height of folly to fight dictator-
ship and enslavement with wea-
pons and with methods that will
in turn enslave us. Of what value
will it be to us to war against im-
TIN I. DOUGLAS
action, Evansville, Ind.
perialism and communism, only
to impose censorship on ourselves
and create an armed camp within
our own borders.
In order to avoid this pitfall,
I would suggest a three-point pro-
gram to be followed, not because
of its advantages, but because of
the dire consequences which are
First, we must accept the prop-
osition that the world must live
FOR THE TIME BEING under
different economic systems. We
dare not harbor the Hitlerite am-
bition of making everybody be-
have alike. The only way we can
unseat other economic systems is
by proving the advantages of our
own by example and not by force.
Ours is not the best because it
is ours. It is the best because it
has achieved its rating. Certain
forms of social legislation and se-
curity measures that are being en-
acted in our own day have been
on the books of other nations for
decades, but by their perform-
ance have proven valuable and
have been accepted. England and
Russia are in that category.
Our second stage in achieving
the spirit of Passover, must be to
clearly define our commitments,
in conjunction with the other
United Nations. Because we have
allowed our foreign policy to be-
come a hit and miss proposition,
we find ourselves in the following
situation. We have committed
ourselves to supply an over-
whelming proportion of man-
power to defend Korea and other
parts of the world, without an
understanding of what contribu-
tions others are making. As a
consequence, instead of receiving
the praise of our friends, we are
treated with suspicion of imper-
ialism, both by friend and foe
alike, being regarded as intruders
even by some of our friends.
Furthermore, we are making
friends with former foes who in
no way have indicated that their
feelings toward us and our ideals
have changed. It is not our task
to impose our will upon them but
neither are we obliged to recog-
nize their ruthlessness. To obtain
our hand of friendship, they must
achieve it. The position of leader-
ship in which we find ourselves
imposes responsibilities upon us.
We must specifically indicate
through the United Nations or in
collaboration with the individual
countries involved, exactly where
our front lines are, and what mili-
tary and economic support we are
prepared to give, and at the same

time know specifically what sup-
port we are receiving. Without
such an understanding any efforts
toward the preservation of free-
dom within the boundaries of the
fellow-seeking countries will be
Finally, we must avoid the
passage of legislation during these
critical days that will limit our
freedom in times of peace. Our
country has long shown its peace-
ful intentions by avoiding univer-
sel military training and other
forms of military subjugation that
would shift the control of our
country from civilian to military
leadership. It is interesting to note
that in Germany, Italy and Japan,
universal military training did
not save them from the power of
the Allies where it did not pre-
vail. It is quite understandable
that draft laws are needed such
as we now have, to meet current
crises. We have the right to rely
on our elected national leaders to
be aware of the status of our na-
tion and its relations with our
enemies and foes, and to determine
when such measures should be
taken. But to have such legisla-
tion on our books when there is
no crisis or danger of war will
entirely change the nature of our
democratic way of life and lead
us away from the path of free-
It is these thoughts that come
to one's mind as Passover ap-
proaches. To repeat the words
Z' M A N CHAIRUSAINO, "The
season of our freedom" is to im-
ply that this way of life will al-
ways be with us. Every blessing
we have, has its price. The price
of freedom in our time carries
with it the cost of the lives of
many of our youths.
The program outlined above
will at least give public evidence
of what the price is.

Jewish Education at Mid-Century
BY AZRIEL EISENBERG
The following article by
Dr. Eisenberg, Executive
Vice-President of the Jewish
Education Committee of New
York, is re-printed from the
Congress Weekly. It is a most
significant over-view of the
present state of Jewish educa-
tion in the United States, as
a contribution to lay under-
standing. It is, also a chal-
lenge to community leader-
ship in providing positive
Jewish education for future
American Jewish living.

During the past two decades the
American Jewish community has
been virtually transformed; its
characteristics have changed radi-
cally from what they were at the
turn of the century. Four out of
every five Jews are now Ameri-
can-born; English, not Yiddish, is
the spoken language of most Jews.
The old, compact neighborhoods
have been depleted and new su-
burban Jewish communities have
sprung up. Time, the universal
leveler, has silenced many of the
strident voices of contending ide-
ologies which wrestled for the
loyalties of the immigrant gen-
eration. The members of the new
generation are less colorful than
the old, and although less religi-
ously observant, are nevertheless
more inclined to affiliate with the
synagogue, if only for the benefit
of their children's religious edu-
The Talmud Torah, that unique
institution established by past
generations of American Jews, is
now being replaced by the syna-
gogue schools. Hence, the respon-
sibility and burden of Jewish edu-
cation is being laid more and more
at the doors of the synagogue. Ac-
cording to Dr. Uriah Z. Engelman,
director of the research depart-
ment of the American Association
for Jewish Education, the total
enrollment in all Jewish schools
in 1948-49 was 255,865, an increase
of 16,000 over the previous year.*
But more than half of the students
attended the one day a week
school. While the synagogue, or
congregational schools showed an
increase in their week-day-rosters,
the enrollment in the non-congre-
gational week-day schools declin-
ed. It appears that the Talmud
Torahs are losing out, on the one
hand, to the more intensive all-

day school and, on the other, to
the less intensive two-and-three-
day-a-week congregational school.
The transition from the Talmud
T o r a h to the congregational
school finds the congregations, in
many cases, unprepared to meet
their responsibilities. Many con-
gregations do not have the funds
to conduct their own schools;
building facilities, teaching staffs,
administration and supervision
are often below standard; Sunday
School classes, Confirmations and
Bar Mitzvahs are overemphasized.
All too often congregational au-
thorities blinded by the seemingly
growing popularity of their
schools, fail to give enough at-
tention to the educational achieve-
ments of the school.
Partially accountable for the
unpreparedness of congregations
to meet their responsibilities is
the failure of our rabbinical sem-
inaries to prepare their students
to direct and supervise schools.
Only two of the leading rabbini-
cal seminaries provide courses in
Jewish education and those
courses are both meager in con-
tent and inadequate in number.
As a result, congregational schools
are often entrusted into the hands
of rabbis who, devoted and con-
scientious though they may be, are
not prepared to cope with the cur-
riculum, methodology and admin-
istration of a school. Many have
neither the time nor the inclina-
tion to take on the many prosaic
details involved in the proper
conduct of a school.
Nevertheless, these faults are
not inherent in the congregational
school. A growing number of rab-
bis and lay leaders, aware of the
potentialities of this type of
school, have tried to increase its
effectiveness by increasing its
budget raising its standards, and
adding to the hours of instruction.
For example, the Commission on
Jewish Education of the United
Synagogue has issued a Statement
of Objectives and Standards which
calls for the establishment of pre-
school classes and day schools,
and for the support of Hebrew
summer and day camps. It also
wants to diminish the role of the
one-day-a-week school and set
higher standards for Bar Mitzvah
and Confirmation classes. It is
gratifying to know that many con-
gregations have taken this state-
ment very earnestly and are en-
devouring to achieve the high
standards promulgated therein.
The consistent rise of the one-
day-a-week schools has been dis-
tressing to Jewish educators. It
has been difficult to conceive how
such schools could develop a sub-
stantial and meaningful program.
Aware of the inherent weaknesses
of the Sunday School, efforts are
being made by all congregational
groups to add one or more week-
day afternoons to the school pro-
gram. Orthodox and Conservative
synagogues are committed to a
program of week-day Hebrew in-
struction. It is interesting to note,
however, that the Reform group,
too, has become increasingly
aware of the urgent need for fo-
cusing attention on the study of
Hebrew as a sine qua non of the
curriculum and program of the
religious school. A planned ener-
getic effort will have to be made
by all groups along the entire ed-
ucational front to intensify the
fight for extending the Sunday
School to become at least a three-
day-a-week school. Otherwise,
the sanction of the Sunday School
by large and important syna-
gogues will lead to an udermining
of the week-day school and its
comparatively more intensive pro-
Paradoxically, with the rise of
the one-day-a-week school, we
have also been witnessing the si-
multaneous ascendancy of the all-
day school. The all-day school is
not a new phenomenon in Ameri-
can Jewish life. In the 18th and
early 19th century, major congre-
gations in metropolitan centers
conducted such schools, but in the
middle of the 19th century, as the
public schools were established
and their scholastic standards im-
proved, the Jewish all-day schools
closed. At the end of the century,
Talmudical yeshivas were opened
by immigrants from Eastern Eu-
rope. In the 1920's and in the
1930's the yeshiva movement
gained in influence. Even parents
who were interested in giving
their children a sound Hebrew ed-
ucation, and not necessarily an ex-
clusively Talmudical education,
began to send their children to
yeshivas. Thus in 1935 there were
in New York City 16 all-day
schools, with a total enrollment of
4,500. During the past decade,
however, under the impetus of a
militant Orthodox movement, the
all-day school enrollment increas-
ed to 18,654, or about 7.7 percent
of all children enrolled in Jewish
schools. Now there are 125 of these
schools in 42 communities in 17
states plus the District of Colum-
The controversy as to whether
the growth and expansion of the
all-day school movement is con-
sistent with the cardinal principle
of democracy in education, has
abated somewhat since the move-
ment has probably passed its peak.
The next decade will be critical
one for the scores of schools that
were established during the past
ten years. For one thing, all-day
schools are expensive institutions
to maintain; the average cost per

pupil is $350 a year. In New York
and elsewhere some schools have
already begun to feel the pinch.
Yet the all-day school is here to
stay. It has earned a place for
itself in the network of Jewish
schools and deserves community
Two developments of recent
years which are peculiarly indi-
genous to the American scene and
which are of great promise are:
the Jewish nursery school educa-
tion in the form of the foundation
school or the pre-school group and
the Hebrew summer camp.
Ten years ago the Beth Hayeled
(House of the Child) or Founda-
tion School was established by
Ivriah, a women's organization of
New York City. Beth Hayelsed is
aimed to aid in the integration of
the personality of young Jewish
children by giving them a Jewish-
American by-cultural experience
in a natural, happy environment.
It is intended for children from
three through nine. While the
Beth Hayeled program has not yet
been copied extensively, its re-
sults have had a stimulating ef-
fect on the development of the
Jewish nursery and kindergarten
movement throughout the coun-
try. In New York City alone,
there are today 70 kindergartens
and nursery schools.
The camp movement pioneered
by such institutions at the Central
Jewish Institute of New York and
the Massad camps sponsored by
the Histadruth Ivrith, has been
equally stimulating . The Jew-
ish interests of children are quick-
ened in summer camps where they
spend a full day in planned and
supervised programs of Jewish ac-
tivities. . The campers acquire
a joyous feeling for the Sabbath;
they develop an aesthetic appre-
ciation of the religious service; the
arts, Jewish ways of life; they
learn to sing Hebrew and Jewish
songs. In short, they develop Jew-
ish interests in a normal, unforced
The mid-century finds the pro-
fession of Jewish education, al-
though small, consisting of a
group of dedicated men and wo-
men who have made an impact
on the Jewish community. They
have pioneered in improving the
curriculum and methodology and
administration of the school, in
giving status and dignity to the
teaching profession, in establish-
ing codes of tenure, salary sched-
ules, pensions and retirement
But all these accomplishments i
are modest compared to the needs.
Although the teacher is crucial to
Jewish education, in 1949 only 85
teachers were graduated by the
leading teacher-training institutes.
At this mid-century point, the
problem of personnel becomes
even more accentuated because
Israel looms as a haven for the
Jewish educator who is tired of
bashing his head against the walls
of American Jewish indifference.
We must examine and evaluate
carefully what is transpiring in
our communities, and in doing so,
we must bear in mind a few sim-
ple truths. Since education is co-
terminous with life, it invites very
b r o a d definition. Nevertheless,
there is a distinct and real differ-
ence between conducting a Purim
masquerade party in a Jewish cen-
ter and teaching the Story of Es-
ther in the original Hebrew. There
is a difference between the prepa-
ration for participation in a Sab-
bath service and the conduct of
a Sabbath story hour. No slight is
intended here against the latter.
Far from it. The point is, however,
that throughout the ages and
throughout the world the school
has been conceived as the agency
for the transmission of cultural
values and patterns of life. It
would ill behoove American Jew-
ry to become lost in the confusion
that now exists as to what consti-
tutes education. Now perhaps
more than ever, clear, hard think-
ing is required as to the place of
the Jewish school in the Jewish
community. As in general educa-
tion, the Jewish school inevitably
reflects life in the Jewish com-
munity. If American Jewry will
be in earnest about the thrilling
prospects and opportunities for
intensive Jewish living in Ameri-
ca, it will rally around the Jewish
schools as the cornerstone of our
very existence and will give it
the necessary human and financial
resources to grow, thrive and
prosper. Indeed, the traditional
yardstick to measure the sincerity
and intensity of Jewish life has
been and always will be deter-
mined by one question: How many
children attend the week-day He-
brew school? Not the amount con-
tributed to Jewish philanthropic
causes, not the membership of
Jewish organizations, nor even the
investments made in building
beautiful congregations, but the
investments made by parents in
our future as Jews through their
children is the criterion for mea-
suring the sincerity of Jews qua

Rabbi Barnett S. Brickner
A thousand Christian Sunday
School teachers came to our tem-
ple in Cleveland, for a religious
seminar to learn about the Holi-
days that Jesus observed. I point-
ed out the well known fact that
Jesus had lived, prayed, thought,
and died as a Jew, and that he
observed the same holidays that
Jews do today. Furthermore, I
am sure that if he returned one
day, and chanced to walk down
the main church street of your
town, he would probably choose
to enter a Jewish house of wor-
ship, because there he would feel
completely at home. During the
question period that followed, the
greatest number asked, "If as you
say, Rabbi, Jesus was a Jew, then
why did not the Jewish people
accept him as their Messiah-
I then explained that although
Jews do not accept Jesus as the
Messiah, liberal Jews like my-
self, do regard him as a Jewish
teacher who for the most part
preached in the spirit of the He-
brew Prophets. But I emphasized
that this was quite different from
accepting him as the Messiah,
the Redeemer of Israel.
Why did I say this? The an-
swer lies in an understanding of
what the Jewish conception of
a Messiah was at the time in
which Jesus lived. The Jews to
whom freedom had always meant
so much were then living under
the ruthless oppression of the
Romans. They found their status
as a persecuted and subject peo-
ple intolerable. It was therefore
only natural that they should
look for a Redeemer. The more
timid among them believed that
open rebellion against Rome
would be suicidal, and turned for
sorely needed comfort and solace
to the popular mystical beliefs
about salvation in another world,
a heavenly kingdom, to be
brought about by a divinely sent
Messiah. But there were also
those, especially among the Gali-
leans, from whom Jesus came,
who planned a secret rebellion
under a leader touched with the
prophetic spirit. For had not the
Messiah been promised for a
time such as this, to liberate the
nation, and usher in a new era
of universal freedom, brother-
hood and peace? They chose to
rally around the popular and
youthful Jesus of Nazareth, to
lead this rebellion.
What happened on the eve of
that famous Passover, is a well
known story. It is a story of de-
feat and failure for the insur-
rection, culminating in the ap-
prehension of Jesus, in his trial
It is one of the tragic mistakes
of history that the Synoptic
Gospels, particularly that of John,
placed the blame for the death
of the Nazarene upon the Jews,
instead of upon the Romans
where it rightfully belonged. All
the waters of history will never
be able to wash from the hands
of Pontius Pilate the blame for
this crime of the ages. But to the
Jewish contemporaries of Jesus,
his failure to bring about national
redemption and a new world or-
der, disqualified him as the Mes-
siah. We can well understand
that to a people who suffered
even more intensely under the
Roman heel after the crucifixion,
and who 40 years later, saw the
Romans lay siege to their coun-
try, butcher their dear ones, ex-
propriate their possessions, de-
vastate their Temple and scatter
their surviving remnants all over
the Roman Empire-to tell such
people that Salvation had come
and a Redeemer had been sent
to them, was to mock them.
We may well add here that the
subsequent treatment which Jews
have received at the hands of
some of the alleged followers of
Jesus who called themselves
Christians, but who are in reality
only Gentiles, has done very little
to win the people from whose
loins Jesus sprang, either to the

person of Jesus or to the Church
which spoke in his name. That
is why it is so fantastic to me
to hear some in the Church still
speak about converting Jews.
Certainly it is commendable to
hear Christian churches speak
out now against anti-Semitism. I
only wish that more had done
so during those dark Hitler days.
Perhaps then, some of those 6,-
000,000 Jews now dead, might
today be living.
From what I have said, you
may have gathered that I believe
that there is an irreconcilable
difference between Jew and
Christian. However, quite the re-
verse is true. As a Rabbi, I want
to emphasize, that there is an
underlying unity between us,
that transcends the differences.
Consider even our divergent
conception of the Messiam. What
essential difference does it make
that Christians believe that the
Messiah has already come, and
Jews believe that the Messianic
Age is yet to come? Don't we
both know that the kingdom of
God on earth is far from being
a reality, and don't we both
agree, that with God's help and
man's effort, that better world,
that kingdom of God on earth,
that Messianic ideal, no matter
how expressed or by whom, can
and must be trouble into being?
If we accent the positive teach-
ings we have in common, and if
we but will it, it need not be a
Furthermore, consider this as a
basis for an underlying unity be-
tween us. Do you think it is an
accident that Easter and Pass-
over come so close together in
the calendar? Scholars tell us
that they both originate in the
same ancient spring festival,
transformed and spiritualized by
both our faiths. The Jew by
identifying it with the Exodus
Story, and the Christian by iden-
tifying it with the Resurrection.
What could be closer than that
the Last Supper of Jesus was his
celebration of the Passover Seder;

the Matzohs, the unleavened
bread which he and his disciples
ate, the Kiddush wine which he
and his disciples drank, are in
Christianity the basis for the
Sacrament of the Holy Com-
munion, the Matzohs his body,
the wine his blood, and the
roasted Passover lamb which he
and his disciples ate at that Seder,
have become the symbol for Jesus
If you really want to under-
stand the symbolism of the Res-
urrection story, then you must
set it against the Jewish back-
ground of Jesus. The sufferings
ascribed to Jesus, his rise from
the tomb, are but the transfer-
ence to an individual of what
the ancient Prophets of Israel
predicted for an entire people.
For them, "the suffering servant
of the Lord," was not a person
but the whole people of Israel.
Jesus was only the symbol. Like
Jesus, the Jewish people pro-
claimed its truths to the world.
The cruel and the ruthless among
men may believe that they buried
the spokesman of God, but the
figure of that which is noble, still
emerges out of the grave. "Truth
crushed to earth, must rise again."
ED. SCHAIFER, Prop.
"Standard of the World"

Now it becomes clear why the
noted Israel Zangwill once said,
"That the people of Christ, have
become the Christ among the
peoples." Truly the Resurrection
story expresses the Jewish idea
of the imperishability of godli-
ness, and the immortality of
godliness, and the immortality of
goodness. It is the deathlessness
of the divine in man.

deteriorating, according to evi-
arriving in Israel. Further ex-
cesses are being perpetrated by
the Iraqis against Jews prior to
their departure and at the airport
where many were clubbed and
beaten up by the police. The im-
migrants reported that they were
not permitted to take with them
any money or personal belong-
ings whatsoever despite assur-
ances by the Iraq government
that they would be able to do so.
Mr. Moshe Sharett, foreign min-

actions last week and declared
that the value of Jewish property
frozen in Iraq will be taken into
account in connection with the
question of compensation of Arabs
who had abandoned property in

To make this "universal Seder"
possible-to bring Passover to
every Jew wearing Uncle Sam's
uniform and to every hospitalized
Jewish veteran the National
Jewish Welfare Board started
preparations six months in ad-
vance. More than 30 years of
know-how and experience have
gone into this complex, world-
wide job of planning, organizing,
shipping and mobilization. This
year JWB had to plan Passover
observances for more Jews in uni-
form than in any year since 1945.
This year for the first time in six
years JWB has had to provide
Passover supplies for men in a

GIs-most of them away from

hundreds of military installations
and veterans hospitals in this

Europe, the Pacific, Korea, Japan,

More than 50,000 Jews, serving with the American armed forces at home and abroad, will observe

When the Jews of America sit
down to the Seder table tonight
(Friday evening, April 20th) they
can draw comfort from the fact
that their loved ones in uniform
or in VA hospitals will simultan-
eously be ushering in the Pass-

squad tents and improvised chap-
els in Korea; in quonset huts in
Okinawa, in hotels in Japan, in
JWB servicemen's centers in Pan-

in Alaska; on board ships at sea;
at embarkation points; in camp
mess halls and chapels, in syna-

Centers, in hospital beds.

wherever Jewish men and women
in uniform may be at Passover

large numbers of unexpected GI
