JEWS SENT FROM

JEWISH FIRMS NOW
FRENCH CONTROLLED
Geneva iWNS)Moving unex-
pectedly, Nazi Gestapo agents
arrested and ordered the imme-
diate deportation of thousands
of Jews from Alsace and Lor-
raine to the southern provinces
of unoccupied France, it was re-
ported here.
The deportation of Jews from
the former French provinces fol-
lowed by a few days the en-
forced evacuation of Jews from
the German provinces of Baden,
the Palatinate and the Saar. Ap-
proximately 7.000 Jews were de-
ported from these provinces.
It was understood that the
Jews deported from German
provinces would come under the
jurisdiction of the Petain govern-
ment at Vichy. The German
Jews were given special identifi-
cation cards in Metz to replace
their German papers.
The German Jews were given
anywhere from 20 minutes to 48
hours notice to prepare to leave,
depending on the whims of the
local Gestapo headquarters. They
were permitted to take with them
a limited amount of money and
personal clothing.
Meanwhile, the German press
noted with satisfaction the intro-
duction of anti-Jewish laws in
all Nazi-controlled territories.
One Nazi source declared that
"recognition of the necessity for
a decisive solution of the Jew-
ish problem is gaining ground
among European nations."'
The newspaper Boersen Zeit-
ung said that solution of the
"Jewish question" is "an uncon-
ditional pustulate of the great
new order that aims at a peace-
ful Europe free from all ele-
ments of dissolution.'"
London (WNS)Jewish-owned
enterprises in occupied France
will henceforth be placed under
"French" administration, accord-
ing to a decree isssued by the
German military governor, it
was learned here.
The decree, it was reported, is
designed to suppress "th. al
danger to French economic life
represented by the solidarity of
the Jews."' Further clarification
of the decree was furnished by
a Nazi spokesman who said: "We
are not pretending to replace
Jewish influence with German
influence, but we want to place
Frenchmen in the positions held
by Jews. French economy must
not be impeded, however; thus
Jews will continue to own shares
in enterprises."
The decree defines Jewish
firms as all those "whose own-
ers are Jews, or with a Jewish
manager, or that have more than
a third of the members of the
board of directors who are Jews."'

ed the headquarters of the coun-
try's leading Fascist movement,
Zbor, and seized papers and doc-
uments belonging to Dmitri Ly-
otitch, violently anti- Semitic
leader of the Fascist group.
The organization's headquart-
ers were closed and sealed by
government order, but semi-offi-
cial quarters denied that the
movement had been completely
suppressed. M. Lyotitch was not
arrested.
It was disclosed that many of
the Fascist students who fired
on progressive students at a
demonstration recently at the
University of Belgrade were
members of the Zbor movement,
The progressive elements had
gathered at the University to pro-
test the introduction of a decree
limiting the number of Jewish
students in the country's high
schools and colleges
Political observers saw in the
raid on the Fascist headquarters
a sign that the government was
stiffening its attitude towards the
Axis powers.
BRITISH PAPERS
T
TO ACCEPT OFFER
London (WNS)With the Ital-
ian invasion of Greece bringing
the war closer to Palestine and
threatening to embroil the Near
East, the Jewish Agency's offer
to raise a Jewish army for the
defense of Palestine is meeting
with approval in many quarters.
The influential liberal weekly
The New Statesman and Nation
urged the British government to
occupy French-ruled Syria with
British troops now in Palestine
and to raise an army of 20.000
young Jews for the defense of
the holy land.
Seeing the Italian attack on
Greece as a threat against the
1 British Empire's interests in the
Near East, the weekly suggested
that the British navy, in cooper-
ation with British troops, respond
to the latest Axis invasion by
taking over Syria.
The New Statesman and Na-
tion contended that a Jewish ar-
my could adequately defend Pal-
estine from any attack.
The Zionist Review, official or-
gan of the British Zionists, re-
peated its demand that the gov-
ernment accept the offer of the
Jewish Agency and pointed out
that the at.uk on Greece was
only a springboard for a second
attack aimed at the Iran and
Iraq oilfields. The paper empha-
sized that the attackers would
try to reach the oilfields through
Palestine

IN NEW POLAND
Poland (WNS)Polish Jews in
post-war, liberated Poland will
enjoy full political, cultural and
social rights on an equal foot-
ing with the rest of the popula-
tion, Labor Minister Jan Stan-
czyk, speaking in behalf of the
Polish government-in-exile, de-
clared at a meeting of the Polish
Jews here.
The meeting, attended by sev-
eral members of the exiled Pol-
ish cabinet, was held to com-
memorate "the first anniversary
of the common fight to demon-
strate the solidarity of efforts
and hopes of victory of Poles and
Jews."
M. Stanczyk emphasized that
the government was opposed to
anti-Semitism and that racial
hatred and totalitarian methods
were foreign to the Polish peo-
ple. Fighting beside their polish
comrades in the Polish army, he
said. Jews would win the undis-
puted right to prosperity, happi-
ness and work in the liberated
fatherland.
"I wish to assure you again in
behalf of the Polish government,"
the minister said, "that nothing
will seduce us from the demo-
cratic principles securing every
citizen in the future Poland equal
political and social rights. The
Polish citizens, will be

equal in their obligations and
rights with the Polish commun-
ity and they will be able to de-
velop their culture, religion and
customs. This will be secured not
only by laws in the future Pol-
and but also l>y the common sac-
rifices in these most terrible days
of oppression."
Dr. Ignace Schwartzbard, Jew-
ish member of the Polish Na-
tional Council, hailed the pledge
as "the most important step for-
ward in Polish-Jewish relations."
He assured the Polish govern-
ment-in-exile that the Jews
would always be loyal to Poland.
TO PROTEST ANTI-SEMITISM
New York (WNS)A meeting
in protest against the abrogation
by the Vichy government of re-
ligious and racial quality in
France will be held Nov. 13th.
Istanbul (WNS)Nazi Gestapo
agents have unleashed a cam-
paign of terror against Ruman-
ian Jews, refugees arriving here
reported. The terrorists are es-
pecially active in Bucharest
where whole blocks of Jewish
homes have been plundered, it
was learned.
The Nazis, the refugees said,
entered Jewish-owned shops and
took whatever caught their eyes.
They referred the Jewish shop-
keepers to Hitler for payment.
It was learned also that Nazis
in all German-occupied countries
have increased their attacks on
Jews, claiming that the Jews are
secretly helping Great Britain.
Raids have been conducted on
many prominent Jewish syna-
gogues and communal organiza-
tions.
CREEK JEWS HELP
IT
Athens (WNS)The full re-
sources and manpower of the
100,000 Jews of Greece has been
placed at the disposal of the
Greek government in its desper-
ate attempt to fight off the in-
vading Italian troops, it has been
announced.
Fighting with relatively anti-
quated armaments against a nu-
merically superior foe, the Greek
army more than held its own
during the first week of the in-
vasion. Jewish circles here take
pride in the fact that the army
includes a large contingent 6r
Jewish soldiers and at least nine
Jewish officers.

I HAROD OPENS
Ain Harod (Palcor Agency)
This Emck Jczreel colony, which
in 1921 was established as the
first Keren Hayesod settlement,
recently celebrated its nineteenth
anniversary by opening new
school premises. Also commem-
orated on this occasion was Haim
Shturman. late leader of the col-
ony. whb*had died just two years
previously in a land-mine explos-
ion during the height of the dis-
turbances
The school now consists of
three buildings and serves some
230 children from Ain Harod and
neighboring settlements, such as
Til Joseph and the Bcisan Val-
ley a ttlementa which also share
nne postal agency. It was
built by the settlers themselves
at i cosl of 5.000 pounds sterling.
The project was financed by three
sources: 3.000 pounds sterling
was obtained from the estate of
the late Mrs. Miriam Goldschlag
of the United States. 500 pounds
sterling came from a government
loan to the Vaad Leumi and the
balance of 1.500 pounds sterling
a.is contributed by the Histra-
druth.

the balance as usual in cash.
This means a saving of up to 24

Jerusalem (Palcor Agency)
Because of the great decrease in
the consumption of electric cur-
rent for lighting purposes due to
the nightly blackouts, the Pales-
tine Electric Corporation has an-
nounced a change in its tariff for
domestic consumption of current.
A fixed charge of 70 mils for
one-room flats, 120 mils for two-
room flats and 70 additional mils
for each further room will be
made, which each kilowatt hour
consumed for either lighting pur-
poses of electrical appliances will
be charged for at the rate of 10
mils. The Corporation claims
that the high maintenance costs
of its services, which are inde-
pendent from the amount of cur-
rent used by oach of the consum-
ers, make it imperative to intro-
duce this new system, which it
is expected will at the same time
further the use of electrical ap-
pliances.
Members of the public, how-
ever, are giving voice to their
dissatisfaction at being forced to
pay even for services of which
they may not make use.

Alcazar Hotel. Mr. W. W. Jef-
ferson, Jr., director of the local
chapter of the American Red
Cross spoke on "Red Cross Par-
ticipation in the National De-
fense Program." The program
of the meeting centered on a re-
view of all the departments of
Council. A very clever skit
called "Council Clinic" was pre-
sented by the program chairman,
Mrs. Arthur Rabo. to explain the
wide scope of Council's activities.
The following committee chair-
men took part: Mesdames Monte
Selig, Service to Foreign Born:
A. E. Berkeley, Naturalization;

Mrs. Emil Gould.
Jerusalem (Palcor Agency)
Over five thousand young Jews
of Palestine have joined the
British armed forces thus far, it
was announced by Moshe Sher-
tok, political chief of the Jewish
Agency.
Of this number approximately
3.500 have volunteered since the
British call for recruits issued on
July 1st of this year. Approxi-
mately half of these men have
enlisted in the various ground
services, the other half in the
Royal Air Force.
All sections of the Yishuv are
responding to the calls for vol-
unteers; but many of the young
men are hoping that they will
soon have the opportunity to en-
list in further all-Jewish units
such as the two established in
September for the defense of
Eretz Israel and surrounding ter-
ritories. Enlistment in these
units met with the unqualified
approval of all sections of the
Jewish populationincluding the
Revisionists, several of whose
leaders enlisted, and of the
Agudath Israel, the ultra-Ortho-
dox group. The latter gave
wholehearted support when, as
a result of negotiations by the
Jewish Agency. Force Head-
quarters agreed to provide kosh-
er meat to Jewish troops serving
with the British army.

BEER, T
PRODUCTION RISE
Jerusalem (Palcor Agency)
Both beer and tobacco produc-
tion are on the increase in Pales-
tine, and by the same token less
and less need is felt for such im-
ports.
Palestine's beer production in-
i ;c as< d practically threefold i"
July. 1940. as compared with the
same month last year,
from 1C8.000 to 448.000 lit.
The total beer production for
the first half of 1940 was 1,762.000
liters, against 838.000 liters dt
ing the corresponding period of
1939.
About 367.000 kilos of cigar-
ettes were put on sale by local
factories during the first half
of 1940. compared with 282.000
during the first six months of the
preceding year. The output of
cigars, tobacco, tumbac (a coarse
Persian tobacco) and snuff also
advanced.
A tribute of historic signifi-
cance will be paid to President
Franklin D. Roosevelt at the Na-
tional Conference of the Jewish
National Fund on Sunday, No-
vember 10th, at the Hotel Statlcr,
=>t.Louis, Mo., when a replic.i of
u Rosevelt Golden Book will be
Presented o the nation's Chief
Executive. The President has
designated Senator Alben W.
Barkley, majority leader in the
Senate of the United States, to
attend the session and to accept
the Golden Book in his behalf.
The presentation will be made by
Dr. Israel Goldstein, president of
the Jewish National Fund.
Above is a reproduction of the
exceedingly beautiful volume of
the Sefer Ha'Zahav, the Jewish
people's roll of Honor, which has
been dedicated to President
Roosevelt in recognition of his
humanitarian leadership. It con-
tains an "Address of Apprecia-
tion" to which nearly 1,000
American Jewish organizations,
Zionist groups and individuals
are signatories. Each of the
signatories contributed to the
Jewish National Fund the sum
of $100 for acquiring one acre of
land for the settlement of refu-
gees. The tribute was initiated
in the summer of 1938, following
President Roosevelt's historic
call to 32 nations for interna-
tional action to ameliorate the
plight of refugees. Delegates
from more than 1,000 communi-
ties where Jewish National Fund
Councils are functioning are ex-
pected to attend the session and
to witness the ceremony.

HADASSAH ANSWERS A QUESTION
The twenty-sixth annual Hadassah convention, just con-
cluded in Cincinnati, has given the answer to the question
which some are asking whether, under the present circum-
stances, it it worth while to continue efforts in the United States
for Palestine. The identical question was also propounded and
created quite a discussion at a Zionist meeting held in Miami
last Monday.
Hadassah has always been a powerful link in the chain of
Zionist work in America. The institutions which it has set up
and is maintaining in Palestine are a monument to American
Zionism.
It was the good fortune of Hadassah to have Mrs. Rose
Jacobs, its untiring leader, visit Palestine during the war
shortly before the Mediterranean was closed to civil naviga-
tion. It was due to this visit that Hadassah institutions in Pal-
estine acquired the official status of American institutions main-
tained by an American organization and entitled to United
States protection. This excellent piece of work is another proof
of the alertness which Hadassah is displaying towards the in-
terests of the Yishuv in war time as well as in times of peace.
At the Hadassah convention in Cincinnati it was emphasized
again and again that there is no room for questions as to wheth-
er it is practical to continue the work for Palestine in America
under present war conditions when the fate of Palestine is not
clear. The answer to such questions is, firstly, that American
Jewry cannot abandon the half-million Jews in Palestine in this
critical hour, and. secondly, that Palestine is only a small frac-
tion of what is at stake now for the democratic world. Should
Hitler be defeated, then Jewish interests in Palestine will cer-
tainly develop even more speedily than in the pre-war period.
Should the Axis powers, however, be victorious, then Jews will
be the losers not only in Palestine, but throughout the world
perhaps even in our own American hemisphere.
The people of the democratic countries, including the people
of the United States, all hope that Great Britain emerges vic-
torious from the present war. So do the Jews. Continuation of
the work for Palestine in America is, therefore, a concrete ex-
pression of this hope. And to the Jews of Palestine it shows that
the interests of the Yishuv have not been forgotten by American
Jewry no matter what the position of Palestine may be.

MANY GROUPS USE JEWISH SYNAGOGUES
COLLEGE FACILITIES ARE RAZED BY ITALIANS
New York ( WNS ) Brooklyn
College became the first insti-
tution of higher learning in the
United States at which Protest-
ant and Catholic student organi-
zations hold their meetings and
religious fellowship functions in
a Jewish institution when the
Newman Club (Catholic) and
Student Christian Association
(Protestant) accepted an invita-
tion by the Brooklyn College
B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation to
center all their activities at the
Hillel Foundation. Neither the
Catholic nor Protestant groups
have facilities of their own at
Brooklyn College, where the first
Hillel unit in the New York area
was opened this fall.
London (WNS) Scores of
Jews were killed and many oth-
ers wounded when Italian bomb-
ers raided the Jewish quarter of
Salonika, according to a dis-
patch received here. The report
said that several homes and syn-
agogues in the Jewish quarter
were destroyed by incendiary
bombs.
The dispatch quoted Greek
military officials as saying that
the Jews remained calm and
displayed great courage during
the raid. The report said also
that the Jewish community was
heartened by the reverses suf-
fered by the Italian troops at
the hands of the Greek invad-
ers.
Dear Mr. Segal: I am seri-
ously thinking of taking up the
Jewish religion. As a good Chris-
tian I feel that in a time like this
I should help to carry the terri-
ble burden of my Jewish breth-
ren. The only way I know of do-
ing this is to join them.
I feel it would not violently
wrench my Christian faith to be-
come a Jew by religion. In all
the ethical essentials the two re-
ligions are pretty much alike. As
a Jew I can continue to honor
Jesus as the noblest of all gen-
tlemen. In fact, among a great
many enlightened Christians
faith in Jesus and God is giving
way to veneration for a fine hu-
man being who by the very fact
of his having been human is the
more understandable as an ex-
emplar.
By taking up Judaism I would
not only submit myself to the
Jewish burden but I would also,
in this most effective way. voice
my protest against a most hid-
eous persecution.
Yet I am aware that my indi-
vidual protest would mean noth-
ing, except for what satisfaction
my own conscience would derive
from it. Therefore, before tak-
ing this step. 1 should like to
find out how many other Chris-
nans will join me in this protest
I have in mind a League of
Christians to Defend the Jews by
Joining Them, A great company
of Christians willing to become
Jews and thus to voice the pro-
tost of Christianity against the
abomination that is called anti-
Semitism.
I am addressing this to you,
through your column, with the
purpose of learning just hw
mch support I can get for this
idea among Christians. 1 should
make it emphatic that in my
opinion no Christian who takos
this step into Judaism will do
any violence to his religious
principles. Our religious teach-
ings are so much alike that there
is no real ground for religious
quarreling between Christians
and Jews.
I should welcome opinions ad-
dressed to me, as W. E. R.. thru
your column. W. E. R.

My dear W. E. R.: I myself
should be glad to welcome you
and all others who may want to
come into Judaism. I do not say
this in a missionary spirit. I think
you have a very good religion of
your own. Indeed, it is so good
a religion that if it were gener-
ally lived up to we would have
a better world than the one we
are currently suffering. I wish
more Gentiles would take up
Christianity as a way of life.
Perhaps it is rather selfish in
me to welcome you and Chris-
tians like you into Judaism. Re-
ally, it seems to me that such
Christians can't be spared. A
more unselfish view on my part
would say, You had better stay
in Christianity where every
Christian is needed. There are
so many churches but not enough
Christians. Plenty of Gentiles
but not Christians enough.
How would it look for Juda-
ism to take you when Christian-
ity is so hard up for Christians
to practice it?
Yet I have reason to feel that
if luminous Christians like you
came into Judaism our religion
would be well served. Jdaism
would be well served. Judaism
fashionable among many Jews. If
they saw you taking it up, the
value of Judaism might be en-
larged in the eyes of those Jews
to whom Jewish religion is some-
thing remote from their stream-
lined existence.
They might say, "There are
W. E. R. and all those other
Christians going into Judaism.
There may be something in Juda-
ism after all. Let's try it."
I am sorry to say, my dear
friend, that some Jews Jewish
religion is regarded as a social
embarrassment. By them Jewish
religion is resented as one of the
causes for which Jews have suf-
fered degradation and therefore
is to be put aside as something
that makes only trouble.
They may resent a synagogue
as an intrusion on a prominent
street. "Mr," they might
ask, "do we push our religion for-

TRANSATLANTIC
Certain reports that are reaching us from England appear
to indicate that some Germans are at last beginning to wake
up in Naziland Quite a few of the bombs that are falling
on London, we hear, did not explode, and on investigation
were found to contain not explosives but messages telling the
English to hold out because the day of Hitler's crack-up is not
so far off ... An interesting commentary on Berlin's theatrical
season concerns the Nazi capital's biggest hit show of the day,
entitled "Axel at the Door of Heaven" The author of ihe
play incurred the displeasure of the Nazi authorities and was
sent to the infamous concentration camp at Dachu, where he
died The composer of the music for the show, Benatzky, is
now in New York, a refugee from Hitler's terror And the
man who originally produced the show in Vienna, one Ellmer,
is now in an internment camp in England, whither he had man-
aged to escape.
NAZTI STUFF
A new Nazi propaganda method in this country, used to an
increasinq extent in recent months, is the spiritual seance racket
. Hitler-lovers organize groups of "psychic research stud-
ents" everywhere, and then tell the suckers that their loved
ones in the Great Beyond want them to work for the Greater
Germany loe McWilliams. Yorkville's would-be Hitler,
who at the moment is at larqe on bailhe's the same 'ellow
who was kept in Bellevue Hospital Psychopathic Ward for a
time while his sanity was being investigated by the medicsis
disgusted with his Nazi following ... He claims that he was
double-crossed by some big Bundsmen, who apparently want-
ed to get rid of him.
YOU SHOULD KNOW
The Jewish National Fund will soon be moving its New York
offices to 41 East 42nd Street This building is rapidly be-
coming the new Zionist address, perhaps the most impor:
the country ... It is already housing the United Palestine Ap-
peal, the Zionist Emergency Committee, the Zionist Archives,
the Keren Hayesod and the Educational Department of the Zion-
ist Organization of America ... At the end of this month Franz
Werfel will be the guest of honor at New York's most important
United Jewish Appeal function, where he will address the Jewish
leadership on a timely topic The Zionist Guild of Execu-
tives has been officially recognized by the ZOA leaders as ihe
negotiating body on affairs affecting executives in the organi-
zation Arthur Weyne and Daniel Scherr will be the Presi-
dent and Vice President of the American Jewish Press Club
. They defeated, respectively, Maurice Samuel and Joe
Brainin, in a rather close contest The financial statement
of the Palestine Pavilion at the New York World's Fair, which
now has passed into history, will show that it cost S450.000 to
build and maintain the Pavilion And that out of this total
only SI36,000 was contributed by what are usually called Jew-
ish public funds Another way of looking at the Pavilion ex-
pense account is to consider that the exhibit was visited by near-
ly four and a half million people, so that it cost just about ten
cents to show Eretz Israel to each person who saw the presenta-
tion of it at the fair ... In other words, it would have cost just
as much to send out four and a half million leaflets on Palestine.
and such a mail campaign wouldn't have been nearly as ef-
fective as the Pavilion proved to be.
LITERARY NOTES
We have Hitler to thank for the presence in this country of
the royal family of literature, the Mann family, with Thomas,
Heinrich, Klaus and Eriga Mann all being very much in de-
mand by publishers Klaus Mann, the son of Thomas, is
going to edit a monthly magazine called The New World I-
J. Singer, author of "The Brothers Ashkenzai," has just finished
a new novel Shalom Asch's new novel will again deal
with the beginning of the Christion era Also forthcoming is
a new Jesus novel by a Palestinian Hebrew author W
Solomon Goldman tells us that it is the qreatest Jesus novel aver
written ... A question which we want to ask today, and will
answer ourself in a subsequent column, is this: Why has
Maurice Samuel's "The Great Hatred" been ignored by ihe
book reviewers so far? ... To the best-seller list of the coming
book season all Louis Nizer's "Thinking on Your Foot," which
Thomas Mann calls "a book of extraordinary charm'
Nizer, as you know, is one of New York's most active Jewish
leaders in addition to being the most sought-after of theatrical
attorneys.
STAGE AND SCREEN
If any one is offering an award to the most generous stage
personality our candidate for the prize is Al Jolson, who is giv-
ing most of his profits from "Hold On to Your Hats" to charity
... A very ambitious theatrical production program for this
coming Broadway season is being sponsored by Ben Hecht ana
Al Strelsin Don't be surprised if Lillian Taiz, who is private
life is the wife of actor Sam Jaffe, will get a Metropolitan Opera
contract before long One of the most resounding flPs ,
the incipient theatrical season has been George S. Kaufmans
and Moss Hart's "George Washington Slept Here" Where-
fore the critics have renamed the fiasco "George S. Kaufman
Slipped Here" Joseph Buloff, whom we have long cona-
ered as probably the most talented comedian of the Yidaisn

FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 8, 1940
OF
To you members who have
looked forward to another Golf
Tournament, your patience is be-
ing rewarded. Let this be a re-
minder that our Athletic Com-
mittee, of which Brothers Max
Goldstein and Marty Milstein are
in charge has arranged for an-
other tournament Sunday, No-
vember 10 at 1 p. m., to be held
at the Miami Springs Golf
Course There will be turkey
servedplenty of it ... In fact,
all you can eat, which should
sound interesting to you Breth-
ren who attended the last Tour-
nament and if Brother Stan-
ley Myers is late again, make
sure that you leave more than a
few scraps for him Has Irv-
ing Gordon's game improved?
Announcement cards with a
reply card have been mailed to
you and it would help the com-
mittee if you would return the
card making your reservation
without further delay. A good
time is guaranteed to all.

Another of A. Z. A."s activi-
ties is A. Z. A. Sabbath observ-
ance this week. In my opinion,
this is one of their finest under-
takings. It brings our boys clos-
er to the religious activities of
our people and encourages in-
itiative and leadership in this
form of spiritual activities .
Regardless of whether you usu-
ally attend the Sabbath services
or not, you should make it your
business to attend the services of
one of the Synagogues this week
end.
In this way, you will encour-
age thp fine efforts of these
splendid young men and you will
ber 12, at 8:15 o'clock at the
Miami Woman's Club, 1737 N.
Bayshore Drive, Miami. There
will be nominations for officers
both by the nominating commit-
tee and from any members at the
meeting who are eligible .
(Have you paid your dues?)
Now that the regular presiden-
tial and other state and local
elections are over, perhaps the
nominations for officers of our
Lodge will appear insignificant,
but it is of vital importance to
each and every member and to
the community who participate in
B'nai B'rith affairs to see to it
that the most capable and best
fitted members are nominated
and elected so that our Lodge
will continue to make the line
progress that it has in the past.
especially in more recent years.

Brother Leo Eisenstein will re-
turn to the city within the next
week and will be at our next
regular meeting. If you have
not as yet procured some new
members for him, I again sug-
gest that it would be pleasing to
him upon his return to learn that
many new member applications
have been obtained And
Brother Eisenstein is also indi-
rectly interested in knowing that
the members of our Lodge have
paid their dues to date. This is
of special interest to Brothers
Walter Kovner and Marx Fein-
berg and our secretary. Miss
Roth, who have been doing quite
a bit of work in reaching the
members who are in arrears and
encouraging them to pay their

Jerusalem (Palcor Agency)A
gathering of leaders of all nation-
al organizations here recently
marking the twentieth anniver-
sary of the Keren Hayesod heard
greetings from representatives of
three generations of Palestinian
pioneers who have furthered the
work of Jewish colonization in
the Homeland during the past
sixty years.
The speakers who addressed
the crowded auditorium in which
were gathered notables, veter-
ans of the Zionist movement, and
representatives of the entire
Yishuv, dwelt upon the para-
mount role the Palestine Foun-
dation has played in the upbuild-
ing of the land.
Leib Jaffe, director of the
Foundation Fund, was chairman.
He summarized the achievements
of the Keren Hayesod during the
two decades of its existence,
pointing out that the figures of
its accomplishments did not rep-
resent the only measure of its
activities. The Fund, he em-
phasized, has created modern col-
onization in all parts of the
country, has assisted hundreds of
thousands of newly arrived im-
migrants determined to find a
new future for themselves in the
Promised Land, has fostered edu-
cation, culture, health, urban de-
velopment, industrial and ma-
rine enterprises, and financed po-
litical activity.
"Indeed." Mr. Jaffe concluded,
"there is no sphere of Jewish
life in which the Keren Hayesod
has not helped."

die and they are left with noth-
ing on account of which to feel
Jewish. Against that time I wel-
come you and all good Chris-
tians whom you lead into Juda-
ismnot for defense against per-
secution but to make Judaism a
fashionable religion and thus
save it from the hostility of
Jews.
The danger to Judaism is not
Hitler but in Jews who turn
against it in resentment for their
feeling of inferiority. Your en-
trance into Judaism may serve
to give it precious value for all
these.
Yet I feel your generosity in
coming to the aid ot Juaaism
and bringing others with you to
join it, should not go unrecipro-
cated. 1 propose, therefore, to
organize a group of idealistic
Jews to join Christianity to show
the way of Christian hie and to
guard againsst hostile Gentiles.
We shall call it the League of
Jews to Defend Christianity by
Joining It.
When I have recruited this
band of Jews, we shall march in
a body to church some Sunday.
. "We have come," I shall an-
nounce, "to be of your Chris-
tian communion and march with
you to convert Gentiles to the
Christian way of life."
But no! Pretty soon people
wilt be saying the churches are
getting too full of Jews. The Jews
seem to be in everything, it will
oe said. Then the cnurcnes will
become unfashionable and short-
ly they will be abandoned by the
oest iamihes and Christianity
will be left to these converted
Jews and to the few congenital
Christians who remain loyal to
the Christly teaching of brother-
hood.
So I guess I better drop the

Last Friday night Mrs. Joe Fine and Mrs. Albert Quadow donated the refreshments served during the "Oneg-Shabbos." in memory of their beloved mother, Chaya Bluma. whose Yhar-Zeit took place November 3rd. We are indeed very grateful for the splendid attendance, especially of members during the services of the Late Friday Evening services last Friday night. We trust that it will be indicative of a re-awakened loyalty and devotion to the traditional life of our people. We dare not demote the spirituality of Israel to material plane but we can uphold it by attending religious services regularly. We hope to see at least 90 per cent of our membership present at the services Friday evenings. SUNDAY SCHOOL Tin' first month of Sunday School activities has shown a decided increase m the registration. Over 200 children are aln ady attending the 13 class session every Sunday mon Our faculty consists of fourteen well qualified teachers who ale vitally interested in Jewish education Parents are pern I to atti nd assembly every Sunday morning from 11:30 to I '. A pan MI-' class will be con. dinted by the Rabbi evi ry Sunday morning beginning Su November 17th at 10:30 a, m. The course to be presented will stress the history and contribuol Hebraic Civilization. Those wl-o are interested are asked to Contact the office. CONGREGATIONAL MEETING The president. Sidney H. Palmer, has called a meeting for this Sunday evening at 7:30. Members and their wives who are at least somewhat concerned with the status of the religious and mat. rial welfare of our Institution must be present at this meeting. Any matter of difference of opinion will be entertained during the business session. It will be a great disappointment if the greater per cent of members are not present. This is the first Congregational meeting since the new year. Start our year right by showing interest in our growth. Remember this Sunday evening at 7:30 at Beth David auditorium.

A good time is guaranteed to all. • • • Another of A. Z. A."s activities is A. Z. A. Sabbath observance this week. In my opinion, this is one of their finest undertakings. It brings our boys closer to the religious activities of our people and encourages initiative and leadership in this form of spiritual activities Regardless of whether you usually attend the Sabbath services or not, you should make it your business to attend the services of one of the Synagogues this week end.

Now that the regular presidential and other state and local elections are over, perhaps the nominations for officers of our Lodge will appear insignificant, but it is of vital importance to each and every member and to the community who participate in B'nai B'rith affairs to see to it that the most capable and best fitted members are nominated and elected so that our Lodge will continue to make the line progress that it has in the past. especially in more recent years. • • • Brother Leo Eisenstein will return to the city within the next week and will be at our next regular meeting. If you have not as yet procured some new members for him, I again suggest that it would be pleasing to him upon his return to learn that many new member applications have been obtained And Brother Eisenstein is also indirectly interested in knowing that the members of our Lodge have paid their dues to date. This is of special interest to Brothers Walter Kovner and Marx Feinberg and our secretary.

Jerusalem (Palcor Agency)—A gathering of leaders of all national organizations here recently marking the twentieth anniversary of the Keren Hayesod heard greetings from representatives of three generations of Palestinian pioneers who have furthered the work of Jewish colonization in the Homeland during the past sixty years. The speakers who addressed the crowded auditorium in which were gathered notables, veterans of the Zionist movement, and representatives of the entire Yishuv, dwelt upon the paramount role the Palestine Foundation has played in the upbuilding of the land. Leib Jaffe, director of the Foundation Fund, was chairman. He summarized the achievements of the Keren Hayesod during the two decades of its existence, pointing out that the figures of its accomplishments did not represent the only measure of its activities. The Fund, he emphasized, has created modern colonization in all parts of the country, has assisted hundreds of thousands of newly arrived immigrants determined to find a new future for themselves in the Promised Land, has fostered education, culture, health, urban development, industrial and marine enterprises, and financed political activity. "Indeed." Mr. Jaffe concluded, "there is no sphere of Jewish life in which the Keren Hayesod has not helped."

Against that time I welcome you and all good Christians whom you lead into Judaism—not for defense against persecution but to make Judaism a fashionable religion and thus save it from the hostility of Jews. The danger to Judaism is not Hitler but in Jews who turn against it in resentment for their feeling of inferiority. Your entrance into Judaism may serve to give it precious value for all these. Yet I feel your generosity in coming to the aid ot Juaaism and bringing others with you to join it, should not go unreciprocated. 1 propose, therefore, to organize a group of idealistic Jews to join Christianity to show the way of Christian hie and to guard againsst hostile Gentiles. We shall call it the League of Jews to Defend Christianity by Joining It. When I have recruited this band of Jews, we shall march in a body to church some Sunday. "We have come," I shall announce, "to be of your Christian communion and march with you to convert Gentiles to the Christian way of life." But no! Pretty soon people wilt be saying the churches are getting too full of Jews. The Jews seem to be in everything, it will oe said. Then the cnurcnes will become unfashionable and shortly they will be abandoned by the oest iamihes and Christianity will be left to these converted Jews and to the few congenital Christians who remain loyal to the Christly teaching of brotherhood.

Istanbul (WNS)—Nazi Gestapo agents have unleashed a campaign of terror against Rumanian Jews, refugees arriving here reported. The terrorists are especially active in Bucharest where whole blocks of Jewish homes have been plundered, it was learned. The Nazis, the refugees said, entered Jewish-owned shops and took whatever caught their eyes. They referred the Jewish shopkeepers to Hitler for payment. It was learned also that Nazis in all German-occupied countries have increased their attacks on Jews, claiming that the Jews are secretly helping Great Britain. Raids have been conducted on many prominent Jewish synagogues and communal organizations.

NOVEMBER 8, 1940 VOLUME 13 NUMBER 45 HADASSAH ANSWERS A QUESTION The twenty-sixth annual Hadassah convention, just concluded in Cincinnati, has given the answer to the question which some are asking whether, under the present circumstances, it it worth while to continue efforts in the United States for Palestine. The identical question was also propounded and created quite a discussion at a Zionist meeting held in Miami last Monday. Hadassah has always been a powerful link in the chain of Zionist work in America. The institutions which it has set up and is maintaining in Palestine are a monument to American Zionism. It was the good fortune of Hadassah to have Mrs. Rose Jacobs, its untiring leader, visit Palestine during the war shortly before the Mediterranean was closed to civil navigation. It was due to this visit that Hadassah institutions in Palestine acquired the official status of American institutions maintained by an American organization and entitled to United States protection. This excellent piece of work is another proof of the alertness which Hadassah is displaying towards the interests of the Yishuv in war time as well as in times of peace. At the Hadassah convention in Cincinnati it was emphasized again and again that there is no room for questions as to whether it is practical to continue the work for Palestine in America under present war conditions when the fate of Palestine is not clear. The answer to such questions is, firstly, that American Jewry cannot abandon the half-million Jews in Palestine in this critical hour, and. secondly, that Palestine is only a small fraction of what is at stake now for the democratic world. Should Hitler be defeated, then Jewish interests in Palestine will certainly develop even more speedily than in the pre-war period. Should the Axis powers, however, be victorious, then Jews will be the losers not only in Palestine, but throughout the world— perhaps even in our own American hemisphere. The people of the democratic countries, including the people of the United States, all hope that Great Britain emerges victorious from the present war. So do the Jews. Continuation of the work for Palestine in America is, therefore, a concrete expression of this hope. And to the Jews of Palestine it shows that the interests of the Yishuv have not been forgotten by American Jewry no matter what the position of Palestine may be. PLAIN TALK MATTER OF FASHION By Al W*1 Strictly Confidential TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE (By PHINEAS J. BIRON) MANY GROUPS USE JEWISH SYNAGOGUES COLLEGE FACILITIES ARE RAZED BY ITALIANS New York ( WNS ) — Brooklyn College became the first institution of higher learning in the United States at which Protestant and Catholic student organizations hold their meetings and religious fellowship functions in a Jewish institution when the Newman Club (Catholic) and Student Christian Association (Protestant) accepted an invitation by the Brooklyn College B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation to center all their activities at the Hillel Foundation. Neither the Catholic nor Protestant groups have facilities of their own at Brooklyn College, where the first Hillel unit in the New York area was opened this fall. London (WNS) — Scores of Jews were killed and many others wounded when Italian bombers raided the Jewish quarter of Salonika, according to a dispatch received here. The report said that several homes and synagogues in the Jewish quarter were destroyed by incendiary bombs. The dispatch quoted Greek military officials as saying that the Jews remained calm and displayed great courage during the raid. The report said also that the Jewish community was heartened by the reverses suffered by the Italian troops at the hands of the Greek invaders. Dear Mr. Segal: I am seriously thinking of taking up the Jewish religion. As a good Christian I feel that in a time like this I should help to carry the terrible burden of my Jewish brethren. The only way I know of doing this is to join them. I feel it would not violently wrench my Christian faith to become a Jew by religion. In all the ethical essentials the two religions are pretty much alike. As a Jew I can continue to honor Jesus as the noblest of all gentlemen. In fact, among a great many enlightened Christians faith in Jesus and God is giving way to veneration for a fine human being who by the very fact of his having been human is the more understandable as an exemplar. By taking up Judaism I would not only submit myself to the Jewish burden but I would also, in this most effective way. voice my protest against a most hideous persecution. Yet I am aware that my individual protest would mean nothing, except for what satisfaction my own conscience would derive from it. Therefore, before taking this step. 1 should like to find out how many other Chrisnans will join me in this protest I have in mind a League of Christians to Defend the Jews by Joining Them, A great company of Christians willing to become Jews and thus to voice the protost of Christianity against the abomination that is called antiSemitism. I am addressing this to you, through your column, with the purpose of learning just hw mch support I can get for this idea among Christians. 1 should make it emphatic that in my opinion no Christian who takos this step into Judaism will do any violence to his religious principles. Our religious teachings are so much alike that there is no real ground for religious quarreling between Christians and Jews. I should welcome opinions addressed to me, as W. E. R.. thru your column. W. E. R. • • • My dear W. E. R.: I myself should be glad to welcome you and all others who may want to come into Judaism. I do not say this in a missionary spirit. I think you have a very good religion of your own. Indeed, it is so good a religion that if it were generally lived up to we would have a better world than the one we are currently suffering. I wish more Gentiles would take up Christianity as a way of life. Perhaps it is rather selfish in me to welcome you and Christians like you into Judaism. Really, it seems to me that such Christians can't be spared. A more unselfish view on my part would say, You had better stay in Christianity where every Christian is needed. There are so many churches but not enough Christians. Plenty of Gentiles but not Christians enough. How would it look for Judaism to take you when Christianity is so hard up for Christians to practice it? Yet I have reason to feel that if luminous Christians like you came into Judaism our religion would be well served. Jdaism would be well served. Judaism fashionable among many Jews. If they saw you taking it up, the value of Judaism might be enlarged in the eyes of those Jews to whom Jewish religion is something remote from their streamlined existence. They might say, "There are W. E. R. and all those other Christians going into Judaism. There may be something in Judaism after all. Let's try it." I am sorry to say, my dear friend, that some Jews Jewish religion is regarded as a social embarrassment. By them Jewish religion is resented as one of the causes for which Jews have suffered degradation and therefore is to be put aside as something that makes only trouble. They may resent a synagogue as an intrusion on a prominent street. "Mr," they might ask, "do we push our religion for(CONTINUED ON PAGE 8) TRANSATLANTIC Certain reports that are reaching us from England appear to indicate that some Germans are at last beginning to wake up in Naziland Quite a few of the bombs that are falling on London, we hear, did not explode, and on investigation were found to contain not explosives but messages telling the English to hold out because the day of Hitler's crack-up is not so far off ...

YOU SHOULD KNOW The Jewish National Fund will soon be moving its New York offices to 41 East 42nd Street This building is rapidly becoming the new Zionist address, perhaps the most impor: the country ... It is already housing the United Palestine Appeal, the Zionist Emergency Committee, the Zionist Archives, the Keren Hayesod and the Educational Department of the Zionist Organization of America ... At the end of this month Franz Werfel will be the guest of honor at New York's most important United Jewish Appeal function, where he will address the Jewish leadership on a timely topic The Zionist Guild of Executives has been officially recognized by the ZOA leaders as ihe negotiating body on affairs affecting executives in the organization Arthur Weyne and Daniel Scherr will be the President and Vice President of the American Jewish Press Club They defeated, respectively, Maurice Samuel and Joe Brainin, in a rather close contest The financial statement of the Palestine Pavilion at the New York World's Fair, which now has passed into history, will show that it cost S450.000 to build and maintain the Pavilion And that out of this total only SI36,000 was contributed by what are usually called Jewish public funds Another way of looking at the Pavilion expense account is to consider that the exhibit was visited by nearly four and a half million people, so that it cost just about ten cents to show Eretz Israel to each person who saw the presentation of it at the fair ... In other words, it would have cost just as much to send out four and a half million leaflets on Palestine. and such a mail campaign wouldn't have been nearly as effective as the Pavilion proved to be. LITERARY NOTES We have Hitler to thank for the presence in this country of the royal family of literature, the Mann family, with Thomas, Heinrich, Klaus and Eriga Mann all being very much in demand by publishers Klaus Mann, the son of Thomas, is going to edit a monthly magazine called The New World • IJ. Singer, author of "The Brothers Ashkenzai," has just finished a new novel Shalom Asch's new novel will again deal with the beginning of the Christion era Also forthcoming is a new Jesus novel by a Palestinian Hebrew author W Solomon Goldman tells us that it is the qreatest Jesus novel aver written ... A question which we want to ask today, and will answer ourself in a subsequent column, is this: Why has Maurice Samuel's "The Great Hatred" been ignored by ihe book reviewers so far? ... To the best-seller list of the coming book season all Louis Nizer's "Thinking on Your Foot," which Thomas Mann calls "a book of extraordinary charm' Nizer, as you know, is one of New York's most active Jewish leaders in addition to being the most sought-after of theatrical attorneys. STAGE AND SCREEN If any one is offering an award to the most generous stage personality our candidate for the prize is Al Jolson, who is giving most of his profits from "Hold On to Your Hats" to charity ... A very ambitious theatrical production program for this coming Broadway season is being sponsored by Ben Hecht ana Al Strelsin Don't be surprised if Lillian Taiz, who is private life is the wife of actor Sam Jaffe, will get a Metropolitan Opera contract before long One of the most resounding flP s the incipient theatrical season has been George S. Kaufmans and Moss Hart's "George Washington Slept Here" %  • Wherefore the critics have renamed the fiasco "George S. Kaufman Slipped Here" Joseph Buloff, whom we have long conaered as probably the most talented comedian of the Yidaisn (CONTINUED ON PAOE 7)

Jerusalem (Palcor Agency)— Because of the great decrease in the consumption of electric current for lighting purposes due to the nightly blackouts, the Palestine Electric Corporation has announced a change in its tariff for domestic consumption of current.

Jerusalem (Palcor Agency)— Over five thousand young Jews of Palestine have joined the British armed forces thus far, it was announced by Moshe Shertok, political chief of the Jewish Agency. Of this number approximately 3.500 have volunteered since the British call for recruits issued on July 1st of this year. Approximately half of these men have enlisted in the various ground services, the other half in the Royal Air Force. All sections of the Yishuv are responding to the calls for volunteers; but many of the young men are hoping that they will soon have the opportunity to enlist in further all-Jewish units such as the two established in September for the defense of Eretz Israel and surrounding territories. Enlistment in these units met with the unqualified approval of all sections of the Jewish population—including the Revisionists, several of whose leaders enlisted, and of the Agudath Israel, the ultra-Orthodox group. The latter gave wholehearted support when, as a result of negotiations by the Jewish Agency. Force Headquarters agreed to provide kosher meat to Jewish troops serving with the British army.
