Religioui Instruction
By LUDWIG LBWISOHN
This column is copyrighted by

cate. Reproduction in whole or

infringement will be prosecuted.
There is a group of people in
New York, how large or how en-
ergetic I do not know, which is
working toward what it calls the
"release" system in public schools,
it is proposed to arrange the sched-
ules of the pupils in the school
system in such a manner that they
will be "released" during certain
periods for religious instruction. I
take it that the proponents of this
plan include both Protestants and
Catholics.
Dr. Louis I. Newman, the well
known rabbi and scholar, protests
vigorously against this proposal
and is of the opinion that the Jews
of New York should never consent
to it. He sees in it a deseculari-
/.ation of our school system, a
subtle planning, conscious or not,
toward an alliance of church and
state, the beginning of a negation
of American tradition and a danger
for the future of religious liberty.
I am unwilling to argue with
Dr. Newman. I am not even suf-
ficiently acquainted with local
school conditions in Greater New
York to do so. I am sure that
when I see Dr. Newman again he
will add to the general reasons
which he gives, strong and sound
enough reasons in themselves, oth-
er specific ones that strengthen the
case.
What I want briefly to do is to
r certain larger considerations
that bear on the .-pec tie local is-
sue and will bear on the same issue
wherever it will arise and I am
pretty sure that it will arise in
other places sooner or later.
We Jews are confronted by so
many problems, so desperate and
often so complicated and infuriat-
ing, that we sometimes quite par- j
donably think our Christian fel-1
lowmen have no problems at all.'
We think, even more pardonably,
that if we had no worse troubles t
than they have, we would be well
content. And it is natural that we
should feel and reason thus. Hut
Christians have their problems, es-
pecially Protestant Christians, and
it behooves us, as Americans and
as .lews, to take a sympathetic cog-
nizance of these problems.
The Protestant ministry and se-
rious minded Protestant parents
are not at ail happy or satisfied
on the score of their children. The
churches are not conspicuously-
empty, but the Christian life is
rare. The conventional Sunday
school, which was well enough
when it was the adjunct of devout
Christian homes, is terribly inef-
fectual in its modem con.lit ion of
being torn out of the context of
living experience and pi a lice. The
most liberal, the least dogmatic of
(Continued on Page 3)
At the late Friday evening ser-
vices tonight in the Miami Jewish
Orthodox Congregation, Rabni
Abraham Kellner will preach on
"The Jewish home today and in the
past." Following the services n
social hour will be spent in the
vestry rooms. Saturday morning
services begin with the Chumosh
dass at 8:30, Shachris at 9 o'clock.
Arthur Siegel. son of Mr. and Mrs.
J. Siegel, will be Bar Mitzva. He
will recite the Ilaftoro and speak
in English, following which Rabbi
Kellner will preach briefly. The
parents will be hosts at a recep-
tion following the service-.
Palestine Film
To Be Shown Here
The regular monthly cultural
neeting sponsored by the Greater
Zionist District, will be held at
Beth David Talmud Torah Hall
next Monday evening. January 3rd,
beginning at 8:15 o'clock. Rabbi
Dr. Jacob II. Kaplan will deliver
a memorial tribute to the late
Harry I. Lipton, a past president
of the District, and a tribute will
also be paid to the late Rabbi
David I. Rosenbloom of Beth
Jacob Congregation, also a past
officer of the District. The guest
Speaker of the evening will be
Rabbi Morton M. Berman. of New
York, one of the most prominent
figures in the Zionist movement
in the United States. Mr. lsidoi
Cohen, chairman of cultural activi-
ties, will preside. The public is
urged to attend these meetings.
"Pioneers," starring the llabi-
mah players, the first talking film
produced in Palestine, will be the
feature attraction at the Biscayne
Plaza Theatre, Miami Beach, next
Wednesday and Thursday. January
Cth and 7th, together with the mo-
tion picture, "The Man I Marry,"
with Doris Nolan and Michael
Whalen. "Pioneers" is a simple
and effective effort to capture the
drama of one of the great epics of
historythe odyssey of the Jews.
The story chronicles the adven-
tures of the first group of emigres
who left their homes in Europe
and America to form a colony on
the desolate land purchased from
the Arabs.
The fight centering about the
water supply which had for many
years belonged to the sheik, who
charged exorbitant prices for the
valuable water, forms the dramatic
highlight of the production. Unable
to pay the high price asked for wa-
ter, the newcomers set about dig-
ging their own well. The sheik,
-c c-ing his monopoly about to be
broken, spreads adverse propagan-
da ^bout the ponces, which noa;--
Ily results in their massacre.
The Hebrew dialogue is fully
, translated by English titles for

< language.
Nahum Sokolow, famous Jewish
statesman, who died recently, tells |
1 the narrative in the picture, and
1 singing by Cantors Gerson, Sirota
and Kupfer of Leipzig are high-
lights of the film. It is a film
which has received the plaudits of
the Jewish and non-Jewish world.

An important gathering of prom-
inent Jews in the interests of the
United Jewish Campaign, which
raised funds for the United Pales-
tine Appeal and the Joint Distri-
bution Committee last year, and
which will probably undertake a
similar work this year, will be held
next Tuesday, January 5th, at
12:30 p. m. at the Hotel Tides,
Miami Beach, according to an an-
nouncement by Mr. William Tara-
dash, chairman of the 1988 cam-
paign committee.
Berlin (WNS)Nazi Germany
plans no more new anti-Jewish leg-
islation, despite rumors to the con.
trary, it was announced in the
Voelkische Beobachter, Hit1
icial organ. Quoting a',
view given by Minister of the In-
terior Wilhelm Friek to a Hun-
garian journalist, the Nazi organ
reports that Friek said "the laws
adopted at the Nazi party con-
gress in Nuremberg in September.
1935, were the crown, the final
achievement of Hitler'.- anti-Jew-
ish program."
In preparation for an official
census of Christians of Jewish an-
cestry the ministry of justice lias
instructed all Jewish communities
to turn records of Jewish conver-
sion and registration of new mem-
bers for as far back as they have
written records. New government
figures reveal a 25 per cent de-
cline in the Jewish population of
East Prussia. In the smaller towns
i the decrease is closer to 50 per
cent. Births among Jews in East
Prussia have fallen 60 per cent.
Board of Jewish
Education Formed
New Yo,k (W.NSl An organ-
Izedf movement to bring the Or-
thodox viewpoint of Jewish edu-
cation before all local and national
Jewish educational agencies was
launched here at the first annual
I. nference of the newly organized
National Orthodox Board of Jewish
Education. Called into being by
the Union of Orthodox Jewish Con-
gregations of America, the new
body adopted a program looking
to the fostering of traditional Ju-
daism in Jewish education, the
preparation of curricula and text-
books for Orthodox Talmud To-
rahs, the creation of a high school
for Talmud Torah graduates in
New York City and the promotion
of post-graduate work for Ortho-
dox teachers.

Our Own Enemies
We are loathe to admit that very often it is our own flesh
and blood that wittingly or unwittingly cause greater harm
to our people than even the most virulent of Anti-Semites,
but at times we must.
An instance of this was rather unfortunately exhibited
the other night at a public meeting by men who should, be-
cause of their position in Jewish life, have known better.
Thousands of dollars have been spent by the American
Jewish committee, the B'nai B'rith and other influential
bodies, loth Jewish and non-Jewish, to refute the charges
that Jews are communists. Yet some men in their unbridled
enthusiasm for a particular movement do not pause to think
of the harm that may be caused by them. Former Con-
gressman William W. Cohen, leader of the Biro-Bidjan move- \ran Tyn, chairman of t
ment. in answer to a question addressed to him at a public tee for Jewish Refugees
gathering the other night, did not hesitate to say: "Religion I dam; Mme. l.e..n Brunschvug, un-
means nothing" "Thirty thousand communists voted in de.-secretary of education and one
the recent election and they were all Jews" "More than "i the two women in tin French
ten per cent of Palestine Jews are communists." We com-j
mend the rabbi who walked off the pulpit in protest, and felt
it our duty right then and there to challenge the statement
of the honorable gentleman and to denounce it and we
did.
The cause of Biro-Bidjan did not need misstatements and
calumnies to help its purposes ... it has a right to appeal to
the Jewish public on far worthier and more honorable grounds
... its leaders should know .. should plead the righteousness
of their own appeal and nothing else.
Just a word to those who feel that statements such as
this should be ignored because of so-called "peace." There
is no room in anv community for "Ma Yoffis Jews." Ger-
many has well proven this ... We in America must profit by >' **>'>-' n"w
the lesson of Germany when untruths are uttered, these
must be nailed right then and there.
Let it be definitely understood that when gentlemen
such as the Hon. Mr. Cohen will have long passed out of the
scene and their memory completely forgotten, despite their
pride in not attending synagogues, and not fasting on Yoiti
Kippur and similar drivel Jewish religion Palestine.

What could he be thinking of?

minimum of self-affirmation for
i iie fundamental decencies of hu-
man life and that therefore Jewish
ie mes, whether religious or Zion-
or both, are apt to be more
Jewish than Christian homes in
this age are apt to be specifically
( hristian. Nevertheless, the reli-
gious instruction of our children
is one of our gravest problems.
And so a little imagination and ob-
servation will instruct us as to the
gravity of this problem among
Protestant Christians.
Now it is perfectly patent that
Christian children will not go to
a religious day school in addition
to their secular school. It is a
frightful burden for any child.
Heine it has occurred to a number
of Christians to solve the practical
i roblem by Incorporating religious
instruction within the schedule, the
time plan, of the secular school and
thus to give their children reli-
gious instruction without burden-
ing them unduly. And I confess
thai if 1 were a (hristian this is
precisely what 1 should want to see
done.
Now let us see how the thing
would work. At a given hour on
given days the children in a given
school would separate according to
their religions. Catholic, Protes-
tant and Jewish, and go to class-
rooms assigned them, where they
would be met by the priests, min-
isters, rabbis or else by qualified
Catholic. Protestant and Jewish
lay teachers. And that would hap-
pt n SO and so many periods a week.
1 take it that Jewish children who
attend a Jewish religious school in
addition to their pfeCMlaf school
would readily be excused from this
instruction. I wonder whether so
and so many Jewish children who
now get little or no religious or
Hebrew training would not im-
mensely benefit by this incorpora-
tion of such leaching within their
regular scholastic schedules.
Now, in opposing this planif it
is to be opposed by usI should
ike to be immensely sure that one
motive doe.- not enter, namely, the
desire of Jews, frightened by the
ages, frightened by this ageand
how justly!not to be conspicuous
as Jews. I should want to be sure
that this tragic and unworthy mo-
tive has nothing to do with any
opposition of our group to the so-
called "release" plan.
Once more: I offer these re-
flations, taking today no side, be-
cause 1 am aware of the spiritual
disquietude in Christian circles and
the naturalness of the plan pro-
posed and I should want our Jewish
group, especially in those urban
years.

The visitor at Temple Israel this
Friday evening is one of the out-
standing personalities in the pul-
pit today. Rabbi Morton M. Bar-
man, the associate rabbi and di-
rector of education of the Free
Synagogue. New York City, and di-
rector of field activities for the
Jewish Institute of Religion, will

Because of his position in the
Jewish Institute of Religion, of
which Dr. Stephen S. Wise is pres-
ident, and because of his member-
ship on the executive board of the
Central Conference of American
Rabbis, Rabbi Herman is one of the
guiding spirits of the American
rabbinate, and one of the inter-
preters of liberal Judaism in its
rebirth. His message will, there-
fore, be of vital importance to all
thinking Jews in our community.
SISTERHOOD

hood, Rabbi Colman A. Zwitman,
Mr. Day J. Apte, former president
of Temple Israel, and the guest

presented to Dr. Kaplan and the
verbal tributes accorded to him
were indicative of a deeply rooted
admiration and loyal friendship
which the Jewish community in
general, and his co-workers of Tern.
pie Israel in particular, have felt I
for him.
Mrs. Benjamin LeV'ine and her
committee deserve special thanks
tor their efforts in promoting the
success of this affair. As for Dr.
Kaplan, our congratulations, bless-
ings, and best wishes are with him
for many more happy birthdays.

* Uemsii Floridiiai m Vol. HI—No. 1 MIAMI. FLORIDA. FRIDAY. JANUARY 1. 1i:t7 Price Five Cents The World's Rabbi Kellner Zionists to Hold Beth David to Emunah Chapter Window To Speak Tonight Meeting Monday Welcome Students Installs Officers Religioui Instruction By LUDWIG LBWISOHN This column is copyrighted by the Seven Arts Feature Syndicate. Reproduction in whole or in part strictly forbidden. Any infringement will be prosecuted. There is a group of people in New York, how large or how energetic I do not know, which is working toward what it calls the "release" system in public schools, it is proposed to arrange the schedules of the pupils in the school system in such a manner that they will be "released" during certain periods for religious instruction. I take it that the proponents of this plan include both Protestants and Catholics. Dr. Louis I. Newman, the well known rabbi and scholar, protests vigorously against this proposal and is of the opinion that the Jews of New York should never consent to it. He sees in it a deseculari/.ation of our school system, a subtle planning, conscious or not, toward an alliance of church and state, the beginning of a negation of American tradition and a danger for the future of religious liberty. I am unwilling to argue with Dr. Newman. I am not even sufficiently acquainted with local school conditions in Greater New York to do so. I am sure that when I see Dr. Newman again he will add to the general reasons which he gives, strong and sound enough reasons in themselves, other specific ones that strengthen the case. What I want briefly to do is to r certain larger considerations that bear on the .-pec tie local issue and will bear on the same issue wherever it will arise and I am pretty sure that it will arise in other places sooner or later. We Jews are confronted by so many problems, so desperate and often so complicated and infuriating, that we sometimes quite parj donably think our Christian fel-1 lowmen have no problems at all.' We think, even more pardonably, that if we had no worse troubles t than they have, we would be well content. And it is natural that we should feel and reason thus. Hut Christians have their problems, especially Protestant Christians, and it behooves us, as Americans and as .lews, to take a sympathetic cognizance of these problems. The Protestant ministry and serious minded Protestant parents are not at ail happy or satisfied on the score of their children. The churches are not conspicuouslyempty, but the Christian life is rare. The conventional Sunday school, which was well enough when it was the adjunct of devout Christian homes, is terribly ineffectual in its modem con.lit ion of being torn out of the context of living experience and pi a lice. The most liberal, the least dogmatic of (Continued on Page 3) At the late Friday evening services tonight in the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation, Rabni Abraham Kellner will preach on "The Jewish home today and in the past." Following the services n social hour will be spent in the vestry rooms. Saturday morning services begin with the Chumosh dass at 8:30, Shachris at 9 o'clock. Arthur Siegel. son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Siegel, will be Bar Mitzva. He will recite the Ilaftoro and speak in English, following which Rabbi Kellner will preach briefly. The parents will be hosts at a reception following the service-. Palestine Film To Be Shown Here The regular monthly cultural neeting sponsored by the Greater Zionist District, will be held at Beth David Talmud Torah Hall next Monday evening. January 3rd, beginning at 8:15 o'clock. Rabbi Dr. Jacob II. Kaplan will deliver a memorial tribute to the late Harry I. Lipton, a past president of the District, and a tribute will also be paid to the late Rabbi David I. Rosenbloom of Beth Jacob Congregation, also a past officer of the District. The guest Speaker of the evening will be Rabbi Morton M. Berman. of New York, one of the most prominent figures in the Zionist movement in the United States. Mr. lsidoi Cohen, chairman of cultural activities, will preside. The public is urged to attend these meetings. "Pioneers," starring the llabimah players, the first talking film produced in Palestine, will be the feature attraction at the Biscayne Plaza Theatre, Miami Beach, next Wednesday and Thursday. January Cth and 7th, together with the motion picture, "The Man I Marry," with Doris Nolan and Michael Whalen. "Pioneers" is a simple and effective effort to capture the drama of one of the great epics of history—the odyssey of the Jews. The story chronicles the adventures of the first group of emigres who left their homes in Europe and America to form a colony on the desolate land purchased from the Arabs. The fight centering about the water supply which had for many years belonged to the sheik, who charged exorbitant prices for the valuable water, forms the dramatic highlight of the production. Unable to pay the high price asked for water, the newcomers set about digging their own well. The sheik, -c c-ing his monopoly about to be broken, spreads adverse propaganda ^bout the ponces, which noa; Ily results in their massacre. The Hebrew dialogue is fully translated by English titles for | those who do not understand the < language. Nahum Sokolow, famous Jewish statesman, who died recently, tells | 1 the narrative in the picture, and 1 singing by Cantors Gerson, Sirota and Kupfer of Leipzig are highlights of the film. It is a film which has received the plaudits of the Jewish and non-Jewish world. Ladies Sponsor Package Party The Ladies Auxiliary of the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation, will sponsor its annual package party Sunday evening, January 8rd, beginning at K o'clock. A program of entertainment has been arranged and refreshments will he served. No admission charges will be made. In charge of arrangements is a committee, headed by -Mrs. Nat Plumb irg, who is being assisted by Mesdames L. Kotkin, B. Drevich, Jack Hirsch Abraham Kellner and Max Minty.or. The public is urged to attend. University night will be observed tonight at Beth David Congregation, when it will be host to students of the University of Miami and the University of Florida. Taking part in the services anMax Silver, Maurice Orovitz, Jack Mintz.T and Jerome Weinklc, of the University of Miami; Teddy Simons, Maurice Cromer, Robert Levin and Jack Kronenfel.l of the University of Florida. Mollie Engler, Olive Miller, Rosalyn S and Robert Miller will represent the Junior Beth David Congregation. Robert Miller will pronounce the benediction: Peritz Scheinberg will speak on "The College Student's Obligation to Israel." and Jerome Weinkle, John Kronenfeld will talk for their institutions. Rabbi Max Shapiro of Beth David will speak briefly. Canter Louis dayman, assisted by the choir, will chant. Saturday morning services begin at 8:30 A. M.. with the Junior Congregati n meeting at 10 A. M. The public is urged to attend all services. Emunah Chapter, No, 175, Order of the Eastern star, held a public installation of officers last Tuesday evening in the Scottish Rite Temple. Mr. and Mrs. Fred E. Mank, past grand matron and patron were installing offices, assisted by Miss Pear Williams, Mrs. George Thompson and Mrs. Jack Schwartz. Officers are: Mrs. SydneyPalmer, worthy matron: E. Albert Pallott, worthy matron; Mrs. Charles Beckwitt, associate matron; Sydney Palmer, associate matron; Mrs. Bernard Simon, secretary; Mrs. Anna Greenberg, treasurer; Mrs. Philip Somberg, associate conductress; Mrs. Anne Reisman, conductress; Mrs. Sheinberg, marshal; Mrs. Joseph Albert, chaplain; Mrs. Rae Wallorstein. warder, and Mrs. Pearl Rabin. Mrs. Betty Anthony, Airs. Max Halpern. Mrs. Mae HurwitZ, and Mrs. Mortis Pepper as star points. Germany Plans No Further Acts United Appeal to Have Conference An important gathering of prominent Jews in the interests of the United Jewish Campaign, which raised funds for the United Palestine Appeal and the Joint Distribution Committee last year, and which will probably undertake a similar work this year, will be held next Tuesday, January 5th, at 12:30 p. m. at the Hotel Tides, Miami Beach, according to an announcement by Mr. William Taradash, chairman of the 1988 campaign committee. Berlin (WNS)—Nazi Germany plans no more new anti-Jewish legislation, despite rumors to the con. trary, it was announced in the Voelkische Beobachter, Hit 1 icial organ. Quoting a', view given by Minister of the Interior Wilhelm Friek to a Hungarian journalist, the Nazi organ reports that Friek said "the laws adopted at the Nazi party congress in Nuremberg in September. 1935, were the crown, the final achievement of Hitler'.anti-Jewish program." In preparation for an official census of Christians of Jewish ancestry the ministry of justice lias instructed all Jewish communities to turn records of Jewish conversion and registration of new members for as far back as they have written records. New government figures reveal a 25 per cent decline in the Jewish population of East Prussia. In the smaller towns i the decrease is closer to 50 per cent. Births among Jews in East Prussia have fallen 60 per cent. Board of Jewish Education Formed New Yo,k (W.NSl An organIzedf movement to bring the Orthodox viewpoint of Jewish education before all local and national Jewish educational agencies was launched here at the first annual I. nference of the newly organized National Orthodox Board of Jewish Education. Called into being by the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, the new body adopted a program looking to the fostering of traditional Judaism in Jewish education, the preparation of curricula and textbooks for Orthodox Talmud Torahs, the creation of a high school for Talmud Torah graduates in New York City and the promotion of post-graduate work for Orthodox teachers.

In honor of the occasion, council has assembled from the United Stales, Canada and seven European countries, 17 women successful in business, professional and political worlds, through whose voices council, over a coast-tocoast hook-up of N.

The American women, all known to you. are: Mrs. Arthur lirin, Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, Mrs. Rebekah Kohut, Mrs. Solomon, Mrs. Marcus ('. Slos and Mrs. Maurice I.. Goldman. Now just a word about the foreign women. From England, Mrs. Israel Zangwill, successful authoress and widow of the late Israel Zangwill, noted Jewish author and dramatist, who thought not a Jewess herself worked side by side with her husband in the Jewish territorial organizations, and maintains the chair of treasurer for the "Women's Peace Crusade"; Miss Harriet Colin, distburnished pianisl who presides over one of London's best-known literary salons; Mrs. Finest I..

From Paris: Madame Gertrude if the commitin AmstciOur Own Enemies We are loathe to admit that very often it is our own flesh and blood that wittingly or unwittingly cause greater harm to our people than even the most virulent of Anti-Semites, but at times we must. An instance of this was rather unfortunately exhibited the other night at a public meeting by men who should, because of their position in Jewish life, have known better. Thousands of dollars have been spent by the American Jewish committee, the B'nai B'rith and other influential bodies, loth Jewish and non-Jewish, to refute the charges that Jews are communists. Yet some men in their unbridled enthusiasm for a particular movement do not pause to think of the harm that may be caused by them. Former Congressman William W. Cohen, leader of the Biro-Bidjan move\ r an Tyn, chairman of t ment. in answer to a question addressed to him at a public tee for Jewish Refugees gathering the other night, did not hesitate to say: "Religion I dam; Mme. l.e..n Brunschvug, unmeans nothing" "Thirty thousand communists voted in de.-secretary of education and one the recent election and they were all Jews" "More than "i the two women in tin French ten per cent of Palestine Jews are communists." We com-j mend the rabbi who walked off the pulpit in protest, and felt it our duty right then and there to challenge the statement of the honorable gentleman and to denounce it and we did. The cause of Biro-Bidjan did not need misstatements and calumnies to help its purposes ... it has a right to appeal to the Jewish public on far worthier and more honorable grounds ... its leaders should know .. should plead the righteousness of their own appeal and nothing else. Just a word to those who feel that statements such as this should be ignored because of so-called "peace." There is no room in anv community for "Ma Yoffis Jews." Germany has well proven this ... We in America must profit by %  %  • %  %  >' **>•'>-' n w the lesson of Germany when untruths are uttered, these must be nailed right then and there.

The congregation would minimum of self-affirmation for i iie fundamental decencies of human life and that therefore Jewish ie mes, whether religious or Zionor both, are apt to be more Jewish than Christian homes in this age are apt to be specifically ( hristian. Nevertheless, the religious instruction of our children is one of our gravest problems. And so a little imagination and observation will instruct us as to the gravity of this problem among Protestant Christians. Now it is perfectly patent that Christian children will not go to a religious day school in addition to their secular school. It is a frightful burden for any child. Heine it has occurred to a number of Christians to solve the practical i roblem by Incorporating religious instruction within the schedule, the time plan, of the secular school and thus to give their children religious instruction without burdening them unduly. And I confess thai if 1 were a (hristian this is precisely what 1 should want to see done. Now let us see how the thing would work. At a given hour on given days the children in a given school would separate according to their religions. Catholic, Protestant and Jewish, and go to classrooms assigned them, where they would be met by the priests, ministers, rabbis or else by qualified Catholic. Protestant and Jewish lay teachers. And that would happt n SO and so many periods a week. 1 take it that Jewish children who attend a Jewish religious school in addition to their pfeCMlaf school would readily be excused from this instruction. I wonder whether so and so many Jewish children who now get little or no religious or Hebrew training would not immensely benefit by this incorporation of such leaching within their regular scholastic schedules. Now, in opposing this plan—if it is to be opposed by us—I should ike to be immensely sure that one motive doe.not enter, namely, the desire of Jews, frightened by the ages, frightened by this age—and how justly!— not to be conspicuous as Jews. I should want to be sure that this tragic and unworthy motive has nothing to do with any opposition of our group to the socalled "release" plan. Once more: I offer these reflations, taking today no side, because 1 am aware of the spiritual disquietude in Christian circles and the naturalness of the plan proposed and I should want our Jewish group, especially in those urban years.
