Mme. Halevy made her American
debut at Town Hall and was ac-
claimed over night as a most
gifted and fascinating mime.
The New York Times stated about
her concert, "it was a remarkable
performance; this youthful art-

of singer, dancer and mimic.
The rhythmic precision and the
grace of her moving hands hold
an absorbing fascination for the
onlooker, as they describe the
folklore of the Near East." This
is the first visit of Sarah Osnath

FRANCE'S ANTI-JEWISH LAW
Jewish emancipation in France, exactly 150 years old. was
annulled last week when the Petain government introduced
for France laws similar to Germany's.
Had it not been for the war. the Jews of France would have
celebrated this year the 150th anniversary of their liberation,
just as the French nation would have celebrated last year the
anniversary of the French Revolution.
But the traditions of the French Revolution are now a mat-
ter of the past in the "new" France. The Petain government
has turned the clock back 150 years, and with it has reduced
the Jews to second-class citizensat least until the time when
the democratic world defeats Hitler and brings about the au-
tomatic downfall of the present pro-Hitler French regime.
The apologetic statement which the French government;
has issued parallel with the publication of the laws rescinding
Jewish rights, shows the guilty conscience which the authors
of those laws have. No other step could have done as much
damage to French prestige as the following in Hitler's anti-Jew- ,
ish footsteps. No other action could have branded the Petain
regime so directly as pro-Hitlerite as the cancellation of Jewish
rights of which France was so proud.
Affected by the French anti-Jewish laws are not only the
French Jews but also foreign Jews residing in France. For
years a country open to all exiled and persecuted, France was
the asylum for about 150,000 foreign Jews, the majority of them
from Poland, Rumania, Hungary and stateless Jews. Now all
those Jews will, under the new law, be placed in French con-
The establishment of concentration camps for foreign Jews
is a step which has so far not been made even by Hitler's
Germany. Whatever the apologetic statements of the Petain
government say, they will not blot out the shame which the
anti-Jewish policy of the present French leaders has brought
upon France. As for the Jews outside of France, their only
consolation is that the people in France are not behind their

One of the most interesting
meetings of the budget commit-
tee was held in the form of a
dinner meeting on Tuesday eve-
ning. October 22. which was ad-
dressed by Mr. Henry Montor
of New York City, executive
vice chairman of the United Jew-
Mr. Montor, in a stirring and
thought-provoking address, out-
lined in detail the work being
done at this very moment by the
agencies included in the United
Jewish Appeal, namely. Joint
Distribution Committee. United
Palestine Appeal, and National
Refugee Service. He pointed out
that the question of the hour was
not whether or not it was possi-
ble to bring assistance to our
stricken brethren overseas (that
is definitely being accomplished
even in German controlled ter-
ritory) but how much more
money is needed and should be
raised by American Jewry for
His remarks were greeted with
I enthusiastic response, and the
'committee voted unanimously
;for an increased allocation to
United Jewish Appeal from the
forthcoming 1941 campaign.
The meeting was also addresses

the work done by ORT in re-

The voice of Israel had been a
lamentation; these new voices

myself could feel that being a
Jew might be more than a sitting

that I. a Jew. should be going
places. I was vaguely aware of
some new Sinai to be ascended.

ward: "For the moment I felt
as if being a Jew had to do with
something like a crusade."
