Lifting the Nocturnal Sable Cur-
tain that Separates Christian
By Rabbi Edgar F. Magnin
: : ? : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : ; > -,
In a consideration of better un-
derstanding between Jews and
Christians, it is well to point out
that the words anti-Semitism or
prejudice are too general to be ap-
plied to all forms of anti-Jewish
feeling or discrimination. It is also
essential to emphasize that the so-
cial question differs in many feat-
ures from the racial, economic and
religious aspects of the subject.
Let us analyze the social question
a little closer. The problem is one
of the paradoxes of American life.
Has it ever occurred to you that in
this country that emphasizes de-
mocracy and which is composed of
all racial and religious stocks or
their descendants why the social
problem should be more serious than
it is in Europe with all its tradi-
tional hatreds and prejudices? We
have been informed that in Russia
before the Revolution where Jews
were slaughtered like animals in a
stockyard or even in Germany
where scientific anti-Semitism ger-
minated in theory and was carried
out in practice, that the feeling
against the Jew socially speaking
was often less intense than it is in
this country. Here Jews mingle with
Christians frequently; they do bus-
iness together both in the relation-
ship of customer and merchant and
vice versa; they form partnerships;
they work together on campaigns
for civic, philanthropic and intellec-
tual betterment; their greetings in
the street are friendly and exceed-
ingly human, and yet they do not
mingle together socially. We are
not, of course, discussing exceptions
to the rule.
It is doubtful whether the Chris-
tian himself realizes in a corucious
and analytical way the implications
of his attitude toward the Jew; and
we are certain that the average Jew
has devoted very little thought to
the question at all.
The charge has often been made
that Jews are clannish. Jews are
clannish, but this statement requires
some explanation and further eluci-
dation. The truth is that all groups
are clannish. People feel more at
home among their own kind than
they do among the representatives
of other groups. That is why Jews.
Italians. French, Germans and oth-
er ethnic groups build up their own
neighborhoods, form their own
clubs and carry on their own social
affairs. Since the destruction of the
Ghetto. Jews have continued to
form new "Ghettos" of their own
volition in every large city of the
Looking at the question from the
religious angle, it is necessary that
we be clannish and that applies to
all other religious groups as well. If
we mingle too intimately with oth-
ers, our young people will be tempt-
ed to intermarry and this will mean
the suicide of our people and the
destruction of our faith. Let us.
however, be.candid and admit that
we do choose to remain apart after
6 o'clock. There are many gentiles
who would be happy to welcome
Jewish people to their homes, but
snobbishness is a trait of human
nature and Jews are no exception
to the rule. The trouble is that, if

and fraternities. They carry around
a pocketbook full of receipts. They
love such titles as potentate, grand
exalted ruler, grand master. Be-
witched by regalia, dim lights and
"mysteries." they are like school

an organization they are better
than the man that does not happen

uisite for affiliation is chiefly the
ability to pay dues and that under
the gorgeous robes and trappings of

This is no indictment against fra-

fill a definite need in community
life and have achieved a great deal
of good and perhaps it is to their
credit that one of humble occupa-

Sermon Delivered January 1. 1933
Scripture Heading, Genesis, Chapter XII, Verses 1-7, inch
A Jew about 60 years old, sitting alongside of me in the synagogue one
day last week, began a discussion on the age of Joseph when Jacob
again saw him alter the absence during which Joseph had attained to
great fame and glory. This old Jew. in computing the Intervening years,
from memory, did not know how long Joseph had been in prison, nor did
he know how long the famine lasted in Egypt. He reckoned seven years
of plenty and seven years of famine. When I told him that Joseph had
spent 12 years in prison he was minded to believe me, but. when I said
that there were but two yean ol famine, alter the seven years of plenty
God having ended the famine ft>r the sake of Jacob when he settled in
the province of Goshen in the land of Egypt this elderly Jew looked
askance at me, and, but for the fact that he knew me to be a rabbi, he
might have branded me an ignoramus. The lack of an adequately trained
Jewish manhood is fell by those of us who are familiar with the needs "I
our people. Among the Ooylm, the other nations, ignorance of such mat-
ters that are Intimately bound up with Torah. is pardonable. As I have
said on previous occasions, they have only the translated scriptures and
some editions used by non-Jews are poorly translated. The scripture
reading for today is an example of a misleading and false translation in
the copy of the Christian Bible which I have at home. This volume con-
tains both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Verse 7 of chapter
41 in Genesis, in this Christian Bible reads. "And the seven thin ears de-
voured the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it
was a dream." In the original Hebrew no reference is made to any num-
eral 7 preceding the words "thin ears," nor is there any such translation
erroneously using the number seven In the Jewish Publication Society
translated Bible which I use at the studio and from which I read the
scriptures this morning. The Christian translators have furnished the
word seven believing that they enlighten the student or reader. In-
stead it is confusing, misleading and false. When the cows and the ears
of corn appeared in Pharaoh's dream, their number is given as seven in
each case, but. when the devouring takes place, when the lean consume
the fat. the number seven is used only in connection with the fat ones.
The lean cows and the empty ears of corn are referred to only by the
plurals of the Hebrew words for cow and ear. The minimum plural is
two two cows and two ears of corn. Scriptures did not record an error
and an oversight by failing to mention the exact number of lean ones that
consumed the fat ones. The Holy Torah revealed the true prophecy and
AS interpreted by Joseph, the seven fat cows and the seven full ears
raoh that may be applied to our life today. We have been visited by
seven empty ears were symbolic of seven years of famine. As originally
intended there were to have been seven years of each, but, with the ar-
rival of Jacob, the sages tell us, the famine came to an end after the sec-
ond year. Thus, to have said that the seven lean swallowed the seven fat
would have been untrue. Therefore the plural forms are used in both
cases to denote the smallest possible plural two. Because the full meas-
ure of the prophecied plenty was visited on Egypt their number is given
as seven. A more profound discussion of this subject, must preclude a
knowledge of Hebrew by the listeners. It is out of place here.
HOWEVER, there Is much else that we learn from the dream of Pha-
roah that may be applied to our life today. We have been visited by
years of plenty. These have been followed by years of famine. Unfortun-
ately, we had no national Joseph. No one foresaw the years of need for
the entire nation. If any did foresee it no provision for common protec-
tion was made. No reserve was gathered. The people have suffered. A
minority, during these years of famine, may have been living on goods
stored during the years of plenty. The question now is, "How much
longer? When will this end?" We have had some calamity-Josephs insist
that our generation will not see the end. According to them, the years of
famine must equal, in number, the years of plenty. Scripture disproves
any such theory. God has been known to shorten evil decrees. It may be
for the sake of a Joseph or a Jacob; it may be for the sake of some hith-
erto unknown person who has found favor in the eyes of God. It may
come through someone inspired to lead us out of o*ur doubts and fears
into a state of faith and a sense of security. One thing is certain there
is some divine plan in all this. When it shall have been, realized, when
the purpose behind all this will have been accomplished, then, and then
only, will we return to a state of progress, within the meaning of that
word to us mortals. Joseph's opportunity came after years of slavery and
imprisonment. He rose from bondage to the premiership of Egypt and
brought salvation to the people. We, in this land, and in the other lands
where suffering is the common lot, may be, even now, training some lead-
er who will bring us the salvation we so greatly need. That leader will
not be one who relies on himself, on his wisdom and his integrity. That
leader will realize what Joseph did whin lie said to Pharaoh, "It is not
in me; God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace."

the Lord's Prayer, is distinctly Jew-

tury, exclaims "Who is there on
whom to lean, except our PMhei

er in Heaven as applied to God
semis to be much older than Jesus.
While one cannot point with any
amount ol certainty as to when and
how it came into use. it was without
a doubt part ol the common stock

phrase conveys is contained In the

and of his services to the Jewish
A. Abbe Henri Gregoire. Jesuit.
Revolutionary and friend of the
Jews, was of humble origin, the son
of peasant parents. He was bom
near Luneville in 1750. and although
he was educated in Jesuit schools.
he fell under the influence of the
great humanitarian movement of
his day. In 1788 he wrote an essay
on the Physical and Moral Regen
eration of the Jews, and from that
onward his name became identified
with those who rank as the most
doughty champions of J e w i s h
emancipation in Europe. In Octo-
ber, 1789. Abbe Gregoire introduced
before the National assembly m
France his famous law for the
emancipation of the Jews. In de-
fense of his motion he declared, in

A. The t,olden Rule is the des-
ignation ot a fundamental moral
teaching "I Jesus of Nazareth re-
ported m the New Testament Mat-
thew 7. 12): "All things therefore
whatsoever ye would that men
should do unto you, even so do ye
also unto them." Elsewhere in the
New Testament 'Jan-.-:. 2.8) this
precept is described as "the royal
law." The Golden Rule as quoted
lure Is a definite assertion of the
essentially Jewish view as expressed
in rabbinical writings, that "meas-
ure for measure" should be norm
regulating any one man's expecta-
tion from others i rightsi, while
more than measure should be the
rule indicating one's services to oth-
ers (duties). Hlllel Is credited with
the authorship of the Golden Rule
in its negative form. The Talmud
i Sabbath 31> narrates that a
heathen once came to Hillel and
asked for admission into the Jewish
fold on condition that he be taught
the principles ol Judaism while
standing on one foot. Hillel said to
him. "What is hateful to yourself,
do to no other: that is the whole
law. and the nst Is commentary.
Go and learn." It has been sug-
gested, by the Rev. Dr. G. George
Fox 'in Jus very line study ol Juda-

rE stand, today, on the threshold of a new calendar year. What
Father Time may bring to each ol us and to all of us during this
coming twelvemonth Is not known to us. We do not believe that he will
scatter his wares promiscuously. We must believe that all his bundles are
addressed to certain individuals. They will receive these parcels. Let each
one of us accept his gilt with the faith that it is for the best. Should it
contain something distasteful, let us realize that we are not qualified to
judge true values. The bitter pill coats a healing drug. Our taste of it is
no fair appraisal of its value. Just as the laws of Egypt, enacted by Jos-
eph as emergency measures, brought relief to many and saved the land,
so, also, will the effect of the emergency changes in our personal conduct
and in the affairs ol the government result in lasting good. Be not fright-
ened by Pharaoh's dream. The dream foretold seven years of famine.
Actually there were but two. Genesis, chapter XLVII, verse 18, speaks of
only a first and second year of famine. No reference is made to a com-
pletion of the seven years. So, also, will our present emergency draw to
an unexpected and surprisingly early close during this year, which begins
today. Welcome to 1933. May it offer the interpretation and solution to

of 1929, sends my memory back to
Palestine, to Mt. Carmel, Miron, to

We left Mt. Carmel on the thirty-

spot lying 10 miles to the west of
Safed. A motley group, we set out

ever leaving her home in Massa-

Out of man's wonder at the infi-
nite developed his religion. He
needed to explain to himself how he.
a mere speck of dust in an endless
universe, came into being. He
sought to find out why he continued
to evolve and exist. He made at-
tempts to probe into the future and
to discover what happens after that
phenomenon we know as Death.
One can imagine a primitive man
gazing wonderingly at the stars, on
a night so far back that even his-
tory has no record of it, and vague-
ly trying to read in the brilliant
constellations the secret of the far
greater power he felt everywhere
And thus should have come hap-
piness upon earth. For what can be
more conducive to a sane, sweet ex-
istence than the humble realization
that we are privileged to be here for
only the flicker of an eyelash in the
great totality of time. Such a
thought, such a feeling, should have
made men mutually helpful to one
another, disdaining wealth, position,
power as the great illusions. Cer-
tainly it should have prevented
much of the carnage and the bru-
tality associated with human differ-
ences and human wars. For even
today, although we have abandoned
the rack and the thumbscrew, we
have specialised in the subtler forms
of torture, physical and spiritual.
"Man's inhumanity to man" still
"makes countless thousands mourn."
Much of our confusion results
from the fact that in the multiplic-
ity of religions we have forgotten
the meaning of religion. The old
religions which have lasted. Christ-
ianity. Judaism, Buddhism. Confu-
cianism and Mohammedanism,
among others, have an ethical foun-
dation which comparatively few of
their adherents take the trouble to
understand and to follow in prac-
tice. Getting down very close to
home, how many who call them-
selves Jews today make an effort to
understand the ethics of Judaism
as enunciated by such sages" as Hil-
lel? How many who think of them-
selves as Christians try sincerely to
live in accordance with the precepts
laid down by Christ, even allowing
for them a liberal margin of error
because of human frailty? Most
people care little for inward and
spiritual religion, but stress merely
a certain outward conformity to
doctrine and theology that usually
misses the very essence not only of
their own religion but of all relig-
And so. church attendance is not
in itself conducive to the religious
life, nor are visits to mosques, holy
caves, synagogues, sacred rivers.
Such observance must be preceded
and followed by deeds; religion
must be the mother of ethics and
morality. Go back with me, as an
example, to the middle of the six-
teenth century, B. C. E., in Hindus-
tan, where the cult of Buddha, the
wise, the enlightened, originated.
Today Buddhism numbers more
than 400,000,000 adherents. From
the royal sermons of King Piyadasi,
a zealous Buddhist, we gather some-
thing of the ethical sub-structure
of this faith which has so many de-
votees: "A man ought to honor his
own faiin." he expounds, "but he
should never abuse the faith of oth-
ers." What a modern touch! What
a precept for the busybodies of to-
day who wish to pour all mankind
into one religious mold. "There are
even circumstances." continues the
great Buddhist, "when the religion
of others ought to be honored, and
in acting thus a man fortifies his
own faith and assists the faith of
All of the important religions ln
one form or another stress spiritual
evolution. In Buddhism there is the
Karma, which includes both the
merit and demerit of a man's ac-
tions and determines the future
condition of all sentient beings.
Virtue, austerity and science, it is
claimed, lead to the highest states,
and suppression of desire leads to
peace. On the way to Nirvana or
the perfect state one must utilize
right faith, right judgment, right
language, right purpose, right prac-
tice, right effort, right thinking and
right meditation. And since Buddha
is supposed to be only the ideal of
what any man can become, the true
Buddhist is enjoined not to kill, not
to steal, not to lie and to practice
various virtues, among which are
charity, purity, patience, courage,
contemplation and knowledge. And
as part of his code of behavior the
follower after Buddha is warned
against saying or repeating any-
thing which can set others at en-
mity among themselves. It is also
pointed out to him that at all times
he must function as a peacemaker.
He must be patient under injury,
resigned under misfortune and must
possess real humility.
II I had not linked all these moral
precepts and practices to Buddha,
any right thinking man could have
accepted them as sound ethics for
whatever creed the listener may
represent. And yet in far off India.
Ceylon. Burmah and parts of the
earth the very mention of which
takes us off on the magic carpet of
fancy these are the commandments
which the devout hold before them
as ideals of conduct.
Judaism, too, has always stressed
conduct rather than ritual or belief.
The ten commandments handed
down by Moses were intended to be
and were a torch of civilization in a
surrounding darkness of barbarism.
The Jewish concept of holiness
embraced not only right believing
and right thinking, but right doing.
It is in that sense that Zangwill's
famous epigram is true: "The
Greeks worshipped the holiness of
beauty, the Jews the beauty of holi-
Our prophets were impatient of
ceremonial that was not on expres-
sion of the principles of Judaism.
Many of them condemned it as in-
adequate. Amos cries, "I hate, I de-
spise your feasts But let justice
well up as the waters, and right-
eousness as a mighty stream." How
truly contemptuous he would have

(Continued from Page Five)
been in our present day of those
who go to churches and to syna-
gogues, but have not God in their
hearts! Hosea speaks in a similar
. vein: "I desire mercy and not sacri-
fice." And the eloquent Isaiah de-
clares in the name of God. "To
' what purpose is the multitude of
your sacrifices unto me? Bring
no more vain oblations; it is an of-
fering of abomination unto me .
Yea, when ye make many prayers. I
will not hear; yours hands are full
of blood Cease to do evil; learn
to do well."
The passion for social justice.
; then, vivifies Judaism, as it does
other creeds, and turns the observ-
| ing Jew who understands and prac-
tices the tenets of his own faith in-
to 3 practical idealist who makes
the world safe for the weak, the
poor and the oppressed of the earth.
The ethical basis of Christianity
is too well known to need much ex-
planation here. The Christian and
the non-Christian world is familiar
with the Golden Rule, "Whatever
ye would that me should do to you.
do ye even so to them." But how
many men and women of our ac-
quaintance actually practice this?
Christ emphasized humility, relief
of the poor, the duty of love of one's
neighbor. For the prevailing ha-
treds and bloodsheds of his day and
of all time the teacher who is
known by the epithet of the Prince
of Peace advocated not a brutal
might that would crush all non-
believers into conformity, but an ov-
erwhelming pity that sought to em-
brace even the enemy. The psalm-
ist, it will be recalled, asks. "What |
is man that Thou art mindful of
him and the son of man that Thou
visiteth him? For Thou hast made
him a little lower than the angels
nnd hast crowned him with glory
and honor." The ideal suggested j
here is one that cannot be even
faintly realized by any other way
than in terms of conduct. And cer- i
tainly. Christianity attaches no
more value to mere lip profession
than does either Buddhism or Juda-
ism. When I reflect on the sorrows
of the world and especially on the j
false reasoning which justifies bru- '
tality of man towards man. I can-
not help thinking of the immortal
words, "Though I speak with the |
tongues of men and angels and have
not charity, I am become as sound-
'ng brass or a tinkling cymbal."
Certainly the effect of Christian j
-thics upon those who take the i
trouble to understand it is to make
'cm better men among men. The
n .it French mathematician and
icious philosopher of the seven-
Bentb century. Pascal, testifies to
"he effect of Christ upon his life as
ollows: "I keep my faith with ev-
eryone. I render not evil to those
who wrong me ... I try to be just
true, sincere and faithful to all
men, and I have a tender affection
for those with whom God has mo:v
intimately connected me, and whe-
ther I am alone or in the presence
of men, all my actions are perform-
ed in the sight of God, who must
judge them and to whom I have
consecrated them all." This might
have been uttered by a devout Bud-
dhist or a devout Jew or by a good,
righteous man of any religion.
If space permitted, the doctrines
of the wise Confucius might be
quoted, urging men to exercise
charity, forgiveness, repentance, and
pointing out that example is to be
preferred to teaching. The Moham-
medan faith, too, while stressing the
devotional exercises of a Moslem,
emphasizes also hospitality and
charity. But enough has already
been cited to show that the found-
ers of all the recognized religions
envisioned a world in which the re-
lations between men and men would
be helpful toward the achievement

Jews must learn not to go where
they are not wanted. The kind of a
Jew that turns up his nose at his
own people, that changes his name
from Rosenfeld to Roosevelt just for
the sake of sliding through a crevice
into Christian society, or who at-
tends the Christian Science church
for the same reason, is to be blamed
of course; but he is more to be pit-
ied. He must be a most uncomfort-
able creature. It he is so privileged
as to be part of the elite group for
an occasional evening he must feel
of an outer and inner peace.
All religions have a meeting place
in the ideals of our common hu-
manity. And these seem to be the
same, irrespective of color or race.
Formulas vary. All kinds of decrees
insisting upon "Thou shalt" or
"Thou shalt not" are promulgated,
but. in the last analysis, each faith
goes far beyond taboos, formulas,
ritual and theological belief into the
sphere of human conduct. And the
truly godless man. in my humble
opinion, is not he who denies the ex-
istence of God. but he who accepts
the letter and rejects the spirit, who
prays with his lips and curses with.
his heart, who glibly quotes the Bi-
ble and follows in his actions the
dictates of lust, avarice and cruelty.
In conclusion I wish to Rrophasizc
an essential agreement among all of
us God's children as to how we
must live to draw nearer toward
God. Be it Christianity, Judaism.
Buddhism. Confucianism, Moham-
medanism, be it a creed older than
history or a cult young as the day's
newspaper, only one thing interests
us: How does that faith affect the
daily life of its adherents? Does it
make them more kindly, more tol-
erant, more just? For, when all i^
said and done, all religions meet
somewhere in the great, compassion-
ate heart of God.

What the future will demonstrate
we cannot predict; nor do we care
very much personally. We do think
thai both Jews and Christians
might exercise a little more desire
to mingle together, at the same
time maintaining their own self re-
spect and fealty to their group. If
this is to come, the Christian will
have to become a lot more Christian
than he is and many Jews will have
to improve their manners.
After all. is it not possible that a
partial basis for this discrimination
rest.- upon our own crudities? Some
of us do not know how funny we
are. It is commendable for a man
to rise from the ghetto to a boule-
vard in one generation, but living
on the boulevard does not necessar-
ily mean the abolition of his ghetto

I know that I shall be severely
criticised for making this statement,
but truth and candor dictate I hat
the attention of our people be called i
to this weakness in ourselves. Some
Jews might well cultivate a little
more reserve, polish and poise. I
have no doubt that this will be
achieved in time as many Jews have
already acquired these characteris-
tics, but let us not deceive ourselves
that most Jews possess them. They
do not. So this adds another point !
to the aggravation that exists be- j
tween Jews and Christians and !
some of our gentile students made
no bones about it.
