To My Way of
Thanking
by
Rabbi Israel H. Weisfeld
Now that the tumult and
shouting has died, and the
captains and the kins about
lo depart one can lean back
and coolly reflect the entire
matter.
Briefly this is what hap-
pened. Premier Ramsay Mac-
Donald of England journeyed
three thousand miles to
America conferred with
President Hoover, and later
delivered an address, which
was broadcast over the radio
to the entire country. This ad -
dress, the essence of which
was an appeal, jointly agreed
upon by President Hoover
and the English Premier, to
the other overnments (o
join hands with England and
America in an honest effort
for reducing navies and gener-
ally promoting the realization
of universal peace, elicited
thousands of congratulatory
letters.
Truly, in the light of hi
tory, this is a very signifi
cant and epoch-makini> occur-
rence. Picture the frankly
contemptuous look of Geo
the HI. upon being told that
some da) the powerful Eng-
land, Mistress of the Seas,
whose boast it is "that the
Sun. never sets on British
Soil" would cross the Atlantic
to confer with the Whipper-
snappin-.; colonies upon a mat-
ter so vitally important as
that of the reduction ol
navies. Preposterous'.: And
worse still, that this same
England would lie represented
not by His Sovereign Majes-
ty, the King of England, not
even by His Royal Highness,
the Prince of Wales, but by a
man representing the labor-
ing people, the common, ignor-
ant, plodding, worthless, no-
account Tommies.
It's all so beautiful. And

unmoved? That I do not feel
myself glow with happiness

Coming as this issue does,
on the eve of Succos, the cul-
mination of the High Holi-
davs and which is ended by
Sine-has Torah, "The Feast
of the Law" we wonder wheth-
er a thought or two may not
be devoted to what Judaism
means. So much has been said
of recent years as to the fail-
ure of Judaism and especially
Traditional Judaism to at-
tract the younger folks, and
so much has been made of the
so-called lack of adaptation of
Traditional Judaism to pre-
sent day demands that we feel
it to be our duty to present
for the perusal of our read
ers what we consider to be
one of the most splendidly
written papers on the subject
that it has been our fortune
ever to read. Rabbi Drob is
considered to be one of the
most able of present day Rab-
bis especially amongst the
graduates of the Jewish The-
ological Seminary of America
and has been noted for his
stand in favor of Traditional
Judaism and against the at-
tempts of many of his col-
leagues of the Conservative
movement to change tradi-
tions and observances. It mav
be recalled to our readers that
the famous paper referred to
in the end of the article, "I
am a Hebrew" by Dr. Cyrus
Adler, president of the Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America amonst other things
affirms the belief that the
sexes must be separated in
Synagogues affirming their
belief in traditional Judaism.
me, which they had receiv-
ed from their parents and
teachers, who in turn had re-
ceived it in direct line from
"Moses, Joshua, the Elders,
the Prophets, the Men of the
Great Synagogue, the Rabbis
and the Scholars" of every
generation. This Judaism they
received, and this Judaism
they taught me.
I have never had the inclin-
ation to while away my time
in idle speculation as to what
kind of a Judaism I would
have liked to receive. To do
so would have been as idle
as to speculate on what kind
of a mother or a father I
would have liked to have. If
I had been consulted, I might
have chosen a mother as beau-
tiful as .Venus or a father as
rich as Croesus. Fortunately
or unfortunately, I was not
consulted in the matter. It was
God's will that I should be
born in a certain place to cer-
tain parents. Likewise, the
Judaism I profess is not of
my making or of my choos-
ing. Had I been brought up
without any religion, I really
do not know if I would have
chosen Judaism. In fact, I feel
reasonably certain that had I
been born of Christian par-
ents. I would have remained a
Christian and might today
have been addressing a Chris-
tian assembly on Fundament-
alism. If I am a Jew, it is
therefore because of no men-
tal processes or philosophic
researches, but simply be-
cause God willed it that I
should be born of Jewish par-
ents. Nor can I say that I
have ever consciously chosen
Judaism, since Judaism never
granted anyone the right to
say whether he desired to re-
main a Jew or not. It is one
of Judaism's cardinal doc-
trines that a Jew who breaks
any of Its laws is a sinner,
and he who leaves the faith is
a traitor. Judaism is there-
fore not only my birthright
but also my responsibility
which I cannot shirk or re-
pudiate.
This Judaism I received in
mv little town, and while
there, I observed it as a mat-
ter of course. When I came to
this country, while I found the
observance of Judaism not so
irthplace,
A Reaffirmrnffltiom
of Traditional
Judaism
By Rabbi Max Drob
^h
J
I was born in a very pious
Jewish home. Both my par-
ents observed even the min-
utiae of the Jewish law. In
the little Polish town where
J spent my childhood, Jewish
observance was the rule and
lot the exception. All my
teachers were God-fearing
meii of impeccable character
who scrupulously practiced
Jjjje Judaism they taught.
They were unquestionably
'"yal to the Torah and were
willing to make every conceiv-
able sacrifice in its behalf.
This Judaism that I receiv-
ed from my parents and
teachers I call Traditional
Judaism. It was not a Juda-
lsn of their own making, for
they did not formulate it. It
was a Judaism, so they told
realized his error and set
about to found a separate in-
stitution for the training of
Rabbis pledged to Traditional
Judaism. Thus the Jewish
Theological Seminary from its
very inception was committed
to traditional Judaism. Many
have been the detractors of
the Seminary, but I challenge
them to point to any instance
wherein it has deviated from
its avowed loyalty to tradi-
tion.
Dr. Schechter of blessed
memory repeatedly stated
that the Seminary is not the
center nor even the nucleus of
a third party in Judaism. The
Seminary, he insisted, has no
desire to promulgate a new
Schulhan Aruch or even to
amend the old one, and it cer-
tainly presents no new the-
ology. Higher criticism he de-
cried as "higher anti-Semi-
tism" and he cautioned us
against adopting its conclu-
sions. He required the profes-
sors and the students to ob-
serve traditional Judaism, a
requirement which can be
found in every Register of the
institution. He saw to it that
the model synagogue at the
Seminary was conducted in
strict accordance with tradi-
tion, and its beautiful service
reflected the spirit of loyalty
that animated the institution.
When the United Synagogue
was founded, its constitution
distinctly stated that it did
not sanction the innovations
made by some of its consti-
tuent synagogues. If there
has ever been a change of
front, no statement to that ef-
fect has ever been made. I
look in vain for any record
that the United Synagogue
ever amended that clause in
its constitution or that the
Jewish Theological Seminary
ever ceased to be loyal to the
avowed purpose of the foun-
der. In preaching and teach-
ing traditional Judaism, I
therefore feel that I am loyal
to the charge given me at my
ordination eighteen years ago.
Since that time, I have re-
ceived no revelation from God
urging me to reform Judaism,

W'hile touring through the
Great Smoky Mountains an
artist paused at a picturesque
spot, parked his car by the
roadside, laid out his paint
box, palette and easel, and
prepared to sketch the scene.
An old mountaineer came by
and stopped to watch these
preparations, with keen inter-
est. He had never seen an ar-
tist at work, but he recogniz-
ed the materials as paint and
brushes.
The artist had a happy
thought. What a character
study this man would make!
"PI tell you what I'll do, my
friend," he said to the moun-
taineer. "If you'll let. me paint
you I'll give you five dollars."
The old fellow hesitated and
scratched his grizzled beard as
though in perplexity.
"What do you say?" urged
the artist. "That's an easy
way to make five dollars."
"Yes, suh, I know that," re-
plied the old man, "and I'd
shore like to make it. But
what's a-worryin' me is, how
would I git the paint off'n
me a'terwards?"
* *
"Nurse," said the amorous
patient, "I'm in love with you.
I don't want to get well."
"Cheer up, you won't," she
assured him. "The doctor's in
love with me, too, and he saw
you kiss me this morning."

The question, "Name two
Indian tribes of Mississippi
and tell something about their
costumes and habits," was
answered as follows by a
negro applicant in that state
for a teacher's certificate:
"The Coco Colas and the
Semicolons. They wore feath-
ers in there costumes and
their habits was bad."

Judging from the way

The immigration to this coun-

change in my adherence to
Traditional Judaism, its tenets
and practices.
When I decided to enter the
ministry, I chose the Jewish
Theological Seminary because
I believed it to be an institu-
tion for the promulgation of
Traditional Judaism. Heading
its history, I learned that Sa-
bato Morais of blessed mem-
ory founded it because the
older institution at Cincinnati
had definitely broken with
tradition. At first he had be-
lieved that Torah was non-
sectarian and that it was pos-
sible for one institution to

task, I believe that I would
still prefer the cumulative
wisdom off the ages to the
snap judgement of the day.
Had I, during these eighteen
years, come to the conclusion
that I could no longer preach
and teach traditional Judaism
I would have been honest
enough to part company with
the Seminary, the Rabbinical
Assembly and the United Sy-
nagogue. Likewise, had these
institutions, God forbid de-
parted from traditional Juda-
ism, I would have felt it my
duty to break with them pain-
ful as the process might have
been.

A ReaffariniTiatioe
of Tradlitaoinfiill
Jmdaisinni
By Rabbi Max Drob
(I nued from Page 3)
pan brethren, we believe that
raditional Judaism in this
liul can be promulgated only
synagogues that are out-
lardly as well as inwardly
taut i t'ul, and at services
were decorum and order pre-
ail. We believe that tradi-
I'liial Judaism must be
leached in English, a lan-
Wge which the people un-
pstand, and by men who are
p masters of their congre-
Btion by virtue of their secu-
V as well as their religious
Jucation. The Hebrew School
insist, must be as beauti-
real orthodox Judaism has
never been opposed to beauti-
ful synagogues, to orderly
services or to modern meth-
ods of teaching and preach-
ing. The "beauty of holiness-
was not discovered bv Reform
Judaism; it was always the
possession of traditional Ju-
daism. Only the pitiable econ-
omic conditions and the lack
of order characteristic of Sla-
vonic lands, weaned the Jew
from his love for the beauti-
ful. As the Jew in America
rises culturally, he sees to it
that his synagogues reflect
the higher cultural standards
prevailing in his home life.
As to the content of Juda-
ism, there is really no differ-
ence between the traditional
Judaism as it was taught at
the Seminary, and Orthodox
Judaism. We believe in the
divine revelation of the To-
rah, in the binding character
of tradition and the duty
to practice the laws of Juda-
ism as promulgated in the To-
rah, as interpreted by the Tal-
mud and as codified by the
sages of Israel. We realize
that life has not stood still
since the Torah was promul-
gated. In every age and in
every clime, conditions have
arisen calling for the readjust-
ment of the old to the de-
mands of the changed times
and the changed environment.
Judaism has not been deaf to
these demands for readjust-
ment and change, but it has
insisted that they be made in
the prescribed manner either
through interpretation In-
competent scholars, or thru
legislation by a duly consti
tuted Sanhedrin. It is a libel
to state that Judaism in post-
Talmudic times became petri-
fied and set its face against
the demands of life. What
really happened was that Ju-
daism opposed wanton or un-
licensed change either by in-
dividuals or by groups. Rabbi
Joshua and Rabbi Eliezer, for
example, were taught the les-
son and that Judaism as a re-
ligion of "law and order" de-
mands the subordination of
one's individual opinion sound
as it may seem, to the will of
the constituted authority.
Otherwise, chaos and anarchy
may result. If therefore we
feel thai certain laws like that
regarding the Agunah, for
example, require revision, we
are at liberty to do so it, by
examining the laws in ques-
tion and by the accepted rules
of interpretation, we find
them amenable to revision.
Failing to find such justifica-
tion, we should be loyal
enough to tradition to obey
these laws, difficult as they
may be, until "Catholic Israel
shall have legislated their re-
vision. In asking this, tradi-
tional Judaism makes no
greater demand than our gov-
ernment, which has alway.s in-
sisted that as citizens we obey
the laws of the land until
thev are amended or repealed.
are barred from worshipping
with us. If we, therefore, de-
sire certain changes, we can
Obtain them by fostering re-
spect for authority and main-
ly by ourselves as leaders re-
cognizing the binding power
of authority. Otherwise we
shall have not one Judaism
but a hundred Judaisms, not
one Shulhan Aruch but a
Shulhan Aruch for every sy-
nagogue.
Traditional Judaism as it
was taught in the Seminary
differed from so-called Ortho-
dox Judaism in its attitude
towards research and scienti-
fic truth. There is nothing in
Judaism which it is afraid to
subject to the most searching
examination. "The seal of the
Holy One, blessed be He, is
Truth," and anything false
cannot pass the test of true
Judaism. We challenge anyone
to point out anything false
in our religion, and we are
not afraid of the results of
real, honest scientific re-
search. In this view, too, we
are not at odds with true Or-
thodoxy. Almost eight hun-
dred years ago, Maimonides
stated that he was not afraid
to subject anything in Juda-
ism to the most searching
scrutiny. "If it could be prov-
ed." he stated for example,
"that the world has been eter-
nal, I would accept that view
in spite of the fact that the
Torah specifically states in
the beginning God created
the heavens and the earth, for
the Kates of interpretation are
never closed." Traditional Ju-
daism therefore always
squares its beliefs and prac-
tices with truth. Should any
of them ever be proved false,
it must be repudiated as not
from God, who is the God of
truth. Traditional Judaism
does not, however, believe in
squaring its beliefs with the
"world outlook of the day."
For that outlook may be
false. There is no merit to a
view because it happens to be
the view of the day. The nine-
teenth century produced a
Samson Paphael Hirsch and
a Hafetz Haim, while the first
century produced an Elisha
ben Abuyah, who could have
I.ecu the keynote orator at
any Menorah convention. Our
observance of the law is
therefore not conditioned by
our modern world outlook,
which may be false, but is to
be judged by the canons of
truth. Above all, the basis of
our attitude to Judaism is to
be found in the amount of
genuine love we have for the
faith. If I really love mv
mother. I will not urge plastic-
surgery for her face, I will
love every wrinkle of her wi-
thered countenance. If we
truly love Judaism, we will
not try to throw out this
prayer or that custom, but
will interpret and embellish
each line of the ancient faith.
We will teach our congrega-
tions that it is we who need

at the cherished traditions of

to me. People, too, might
have called me brave and dar-

bravery or the daring in
preaching a Judaism thai paj &
so much better than tradition-

I have been asked, "Can
you preach that Judaism to
the young men and women of
today ? Win they e your
view of Judaism?" Of course
the simplest answer would be
that the view of the young
men and women is immaterial
to me. If my view is com '.
whal matters it whether
palatable or nol ? If it is th.
truth. I must preach it. as I
dare nol preach what I do
not believe. Bui is it true thai
the young people do not V
traditional Judaism'.' If my
ervation count.- for an>
thing, those who want Juda-
ism at all. want the undilutt d
type. The only group of young
le that has made its
ous yearnings vocal is
Voung Israel, and it has < i

tional Judaism. As to the -
called Menorah group, 1 woi
