For UJA Most Dramatic In History
Now that Palestine partition has resettling these people over a

tions,
the
Jewish communities of ar>d above the amount needed for
will be confronted
proh-

jth "an awe-inspiring
r jaCob Sher and Stanley C.
overs told the executive commit-
tee of the Greater Miami Jewish
Federation last Wednesday in
submitting their joint report as
Elewtcs to the national planning
Serenes held recently in Pitts-
bUMr' Myers, who as national
head'of 'the Council of Jewish
Federates and Welfare Funds,
presided and directed the pre-
Ljurc of the conference, brought
back the prediction that the 1948
United Jewish Appeal will be
the most dramatic in its history
and that "its emphasis will be
focussed on the Holy Land as a
place of refuge tor Jews in Dis-
placed Persons camps."
The Pittsburgh conference was
called by the Council of Jewish
Federations and Welfare Funds
for the purp se of securing com-
munity participation in UJA
policy-making. Mr. Myers said.
It was attended by the presi-
dents and executive directors of
the nation's thirty leading Jew-
ish Federations.
In their joint report to the local
Federation's executive committee,
Messrs. Sher and Myers said that
the feeling at the conference was
that in previous years, local com-
munities had nut been taken into
sufficient consideration in the
planning of community quotas
which wen: to make up the total
national campaign coal
A..-1 ht out at the con-
ference was "the increasing con-
cern uf tin country over the prob-
lem of adequately meeting local
needs at h me while underwrit-
ing the overseas commitments of
the American Jewish communi-
immediate relief and rehabilita-
tion needs in Europe and the re-
settlement of additional Jewish
DP's in America and havens other
than Palestine. It was pointed
out. however, that relief needs ir>
Europe would decrease as theses
people were transferred to coun-
tries where they could be self-
sufficient.
The statement by many com-
munal leaders that in order to
do the job properly overseas,
American Jewish communities
must be maintained and streng-
thenedthat local institutions
such as hospitals, community cen-
ters, Jewish educational institu-
tions, family service agencies, etc.,
had been too long neglected.
The conference ended with the
adoption of the_ following five-
point program:
1. The campaign executive
committee of the United Jewish
Appeal on which there is com-
munity representation should
counsel the UJA on the 1948 na-
tional goal-setting process in ad-
vance of the Atlantic City UJA
conference and, subsequently, on
the procedure for establishing
local quotas.
2. For this purpose representa-
tives of the 30 large communities
not already directly represented
on the executive committee should
be invited to serve in an ad-
visory capacity.
3. In order to achieve the com-
mon purpose of the UJA and the
communities there should be a
closer working partnership be-
tween them through more fre-
quent meetings and greater use
of the executive committee by
the UJA for all policy decisions
by which the communities are
directly or indirectly affected.

opinion that local needs in both

had been put aside for the past
few years can no longer be dis-
regarded."
Other conference highlights,
according to the report, were:
Robert Nathan and Oscar J.
Gass, Washington economists,
pointed oul that the crux of the
problem confronting World Jewry
for the next two years would be
the transportation of 150.000 din-j

EDITORIAL
ffOI K OF BESTiNY
In an atmosphere charged with drama the
General Assembly of the United Nations last
Saturday voted the establishment of a Jewish
State in Palestine, ending the tragic 2,000-year
exile of the Jewish people. The historic decision,
which was carried by more than the necessary
two-thirds majority, touched off joyous celebra-
tions in every corner of the qlobe in which Jews
now live. Perhaps the most moving celebration
occurred in the displaced persons camps of Europe
where 250,000 Jewish men, women and children
have been waiting for more than 30 months for
an opportunity to emigrate to Palestine and re-
build their broken lives.
News of the decision to establish a Jewish
State reached the DP camps in the early morning
hours after most of the homeless Jews had re-
tired for the night. The dispatches from the camps
reported eloquently that when the news flash
came over the radio "The Lights Went On All
Over The DP Camps." In that terse description
lies the poignant significance of the new hope
that was born at the General Assembly. For the
displaced Jews of Europe the lights are on again,
illuminating the long hard road home.
This is the beginning of the end of darkness
for the Jews of Europe and of wandering too. We
are on the eve of an era in which the Jews of
Palestine and the Jews of America will determine
the rate of Jewish immigration and Jewish de-
velopment in the Jewish State. The opportunities
will not be limited or circumscribed by govern-
ment edict. Only our own sense of responsibility
and participation will decide the scope of the
work from now on.
The National Conference of the United Jewish
Appeal, which will be held in Atlantic City from
December 12-15, will have before it major issues
transcending anything that has been accom-
plished in the past. It will reflect the will of the
American Jewish community in bringing to real-
ization the decisions of the United Nations. The
adoption of a goal for the 1948 United Jewish
Appeal will in itself be the measure of American
Jewry's readiness to seize an opportunity that has
come to no other Jewish generation in the last
2,000 years.
In addition to providing the resources for
transplanting the remnant of European Jewry on
the soil of Palestine, the United Jewish Appeal
Conference must also act on the needs for con-
tinued rehabilitation and reconstruction in Europe
and for adjusting the larger numbers of refugees
that may soon be coming to the United States in
the event of favorable congressional action.
Never in modern times has any conference
of American Jewish leaders been charged with
such great responsibilities. We believe that the
i
it 1 mm 11 OF A NATION
There is jubilation in Israel, for Zion
has been redeemed. On such a sacred
occasion one can only bow to the wis-
dom of the psalmist who sang:
"When the Lord brought back those
that returned to Zion
We were like unto them that dream.
Then was our mouth filled with
laughter
And our tongue with singing."
Yet the occasion demands more than
rejoicing. It reguires awe, silence, con-
templation. For how can we, who es-
caped the fate of the six million Jewish
martyrs, dance to the tune of cymbals
without pausing to remember that it was
their martyrdom which gave life to our
dreams.
But there is consolation in the process
of history. Our Jewish generation, which
beheld a display of brutality unmatched
in the annals of mankind, has also been
fated to witness the great moment of de-
liverance from Galuth. We, who not long
ago faced the imminence of extinction,
are now on the threshold of national
rebirth.
Our feet are standing within the
gates of Zion.
"May they posper that love thee,
Peace be within thy walls!"
men and women who will participate in the At-
lantic City conference will stand up to their re-
sponsibilities and accept the challenge which
history has thrust at the American Jewish com-
munity. The remnant of our people in Europe is
at last going home. We in America must be pre-
pared to make every sacrifice to help them
achieve true liberationand the dreams that
brought them through the fires of hell.

The Greater Miami Rabbinical Association at
its regular monthly meeting last Wednesday

members of the Greater Miami Rabbinical As-

CHANUKA
Outwardly the struggle of the Maccabeans
was one against barbaric oppression, against a
tyrant who indulged in massacre as if it were a
play thing. But the core of the conflict, the inner
and more important strife, concerned itself with
the opposition of two powerful faiths, two cultures,
two completely dissimilar ways of life__the RV
brew versus the Greek.
At the time when Mattathias called his
people to resistance, Hellenism had filtered
through the entire Middle East and even Judea
was beg'lining to fall to the influence of the
Greeks. Half of Judea spoke Greek, dressed Greek
felt Greek. It was when Antiochus Epiphanes out-
lawed the Sabbath, built a statue of Zeus in the
center of the Temple and sacrificed pigs on the
sacred altar that the true significance of Hellenistic
expansion became apparent
The revolt began and it had to end in vic-
tory. The Jews could not sacrifice their past. It
had come with too much struggle to be forfeited.
The conception of one God was too lofty a height
to be replaced with the diversities of pagan deities.
The soft, easily enjoyed morality of the Greeks
was too insipid a solution for the complexities of
living. It missed the single firmness. It vacillated.
It played with geometry and logic. The Jews de-
manded a truth, a way of conduct. They could
not tolerate mental posing, mental arithmetic.
They could not be satisfied with nice, philosophic
nuances. Aristotlian analysis could not make up
for the ecstatic righteousness that belonged to
Moses. A culture was at stake. Judaism held the
banner.. It would not permit itself, nor the world,
to slip back. Zeus could not triumph over Je-
hovah.
When the sons of Mattathias returned vic-
torious to a Temple no longer desecrated by
pagan deities, Hallel, the song of Thanksgiving,
was sung. Thus they showed their gratitude to a
God who allowed His children to struggle for the
honor of His name. A single jar of oil was found
undefiled in the Temple sanctuary. It had escaped
the profanation of the heathens. It was lit and the
flame burned eight days, thus allowing time for
the preparation of new oils, time for the ritual
of the new dedication of the Temple-
Since then it has been a Jewish custom during
the eight-day Chanukah celebration to set the
Menorah at night-fall to burn against the window
so that a world whose heaven is darkened may
behold light.
As the meeting neared its end
Jewish rejoicing in the corridors
of the Assembly as well as all
over the world, gradually became
vocal and swelled .to a crescendo.
In the corridors a rabbi, echoing
the sentiment of world Jewry,
repeated the Hebrew prayer:
"This is the day the Lord hath
made! Let us rejoice in it and
be glad!"
There were embraces and kiss-
es and tears and excited laughter
in the Assemly corridors. In
Palestine itself Jews were up all
night celebrating the arrival of
their statehood after they re-
ceived the news from New York
around midnight Palestine time.
In New York, the greatest Jew-
ish community in the world, ten
thousand Jews tried unsuccess-
fully to squeeze into a Labor
Zionist meeting where Dr. Weiz-
were being enacted. In all parts
of the world Jews, orthodox as
well as others, as they had re-
ceived the electrifying news over
the radio that redemption had
come at last to the martyred peo-
ple of Israel and that Zion will
be restored, muttered the tra-
ditional prayer for festive occa-
sions and special occasions of re-
joicing:
"Blessed are thou, O Lord,
our God, King of the Universe,
who has granted us life and sus-
tained us and brought us to this
season "
Leaders Hail Vole
What was in the hearts of
Jews was given expression by
Zionist leaders immediately fol-
lowing the vote. Dr. Chaim
Weizmann declared that the de-
cision t o establish a Jewish
state is a "victory for interna-
mann was speaking and where tional equity and cooperation"
scenes of hysterical rejoicing I and said that "it is now our pri-
mary task to establish relations
of peace and harmony with our
Arab neighbors and to contrib-
ute what we can to the regenera-
tion of the Middle East and the
welfare of mankind." Mr. Em-
manuel Neuman, president of
the Zionist Organization ol
America, hailed the action of
the United Nations as "a meat
moment in Jewish history, a
triumphant vindication of the
Zionist ideal at the hands of
the highest international tribu-
nal, which holds the promise of
national freedom and early in-
dependence."
While Jews rejoiced. Arabs
were angry and threatening As
soon as the vote was announced
leaders of delegations of Arab
states arose in the UN Assembly
to announce that they will not
recognize the partition decision,
that it is unjust and contrary to
the Charter of the United Na-
tions, that they will not cooperate
in its implementation and thai
if there is any bloodshed be-
tween Jews and Arabs over the
decision to create Jewish and
Arab states, the UN members
who voted for partition should
blame themselves and not the
Arabs.
After three days of maneuvers
times as if partition had a slim
chance of obtaining the two-
thirds vote necessary for ap-
proval, the United Nations As-
sembly finally met on Saturday
at 4 p.m. On Wednesday when
it was expected that the vote
would be taken, it was decided
to defer the voting until Fri-
day. But on that day, at the
request of France, it was de-
cided to postpone the vote for
another 24 hours in the hope
that some formula might be
found at the last moment for
an agreement between Jews and
Arabs on the future of Palestine.
When the Assembly opened its
last session on Saturday Leba-
non, one of the Arab countries,
exploded a bombshell which, how-
ever, proved to be a dud. Its
representatives Camille Cha-
moun, stated that the Arab coun-
tries would be willing to agree
on a bi-national state in Pales-
ine with Jewish and Arab can-
tons enjoying local autonomy.
There was no mention in the
Arab statement about permitting
urther Jewish immigration so
that the Jews would not forever
remain a minority in a bi-nation-
al state. It was proposed that
vfetU?ment of the Palestine
problem be again refer

promise agreement by February.
These proposals were defeated
when Dr. Oswaldo Aranha of
Brazil, chairman of the Assem-
bly, refused to put them to a
vote and instead supported the
proposal of Herschel V. John-
son, American delegate, that the
Assembly proceed immediately
to vote on the recommendation
of the Ad Hoc Committee that
Palestine be partitioned into
Jewish and Arab states.

ERETZ ISRAEL
-THE DREAM 15 OVER
ERETZ ISRAEL
-AN HISTORIC REALITY
THERE IS REJOICING in the land of Isracl-tKerc is rejoic-
ing wherever men lore freedom and justice. For justice is
finally at hand-and freedom about to be vouchsafed unto a long-
suffering people.
After nearly 1900 years of wandering, of buffeting by the winds
of changing times and climes, of battering by the whims of
tyrants, potentates and double-dealing demagoguesafter nearly
20 centuries of hope against hope, the faith of the Jew has been
vindicated, the hope realized. "Od I.o Ovdo Tikvasaynu .".
It was a hope never lost a striving that never stopped for even
a day. as morning, afternoon and night, ISracl has prayed
"\'se*che' zehno Avnaynu ITshuv'cho li'tzion ." "May our
eyes behold they return unto Zion, O Lord ..." It was a faith
backed up by sweat and blood ... and the tears the ocean of
tears they were the fuel that kept the flame of faith burning
as bodies bent their backs to rebuild the ancient soil The
world now knows.
The liberty-loving, peace-loving peoples of all the world ha\e
spoken through the United Nations. And from that united voice
of all humanity-the United Nationshas thundered a message
of universal justice. The most promised land in history is, at last,
a redeemed pledge, and the land of Israel, won by toil and earned
by right, the land of Israeleven if only part of itwill now come,
into its own by the independent, democratic rule of its own
people. No more an alien people without a home, Israel shall be
recognized as a nation among nations with a voice, a government,
a passport that will proclaim Sholom to those who till now have
known no peace.
The Jews of America, free citizens of a free land, rejoice for
their brethren and with their brethren over this new birth of
freedom. May this glorious beginning of justice herald the begin-
ning of a new era for all oppressed humans, and everlasting
peace for all men and their brothers, the world over.

Census Reveals
New Families
Following the submission of all
enumerator kits for the census
project of the Greater Miami
Jewish Federation, Monday, M. J.
Kopelowitz, chairman of the cen-
sus committee, estimated that "a
minimum coverage of 0 per cent
of the population had been se-
cured."
The census had been extended
through last Sunday to give
enumerators additional time to
complete the canvass of names
assigned to them, following a re-
port tea held at the McAllister
hotel last week for majors and
captains of the project.
A tentative examination of re-
ports submitted revealed a great
mobility in the city's Jewish pop-
ulation, with a noticeable trend
away from the northeast section.
Early reports indicated a great
influx of new families in the
Southwest section, Coral Gables
and North Beach, Kopelowitz
said, "but the most remarkable
fact of all," he emphasized, "is
the large number of new names
that were turned innames of
Jewish families which have no
previous history of any connec-
tion with Federation nor any
other Jewish organizations."
Kopelowitz added that a com-
mittee of tabulators was being
formed to analyze the reports.

march by a large crowd of Arabs who assembled at the Jaffa
Gate and then cut back toward the center of the Old City.
During the demonstration a number of Arabs left the main
body and
ran down Princess
Mary st. knifing two Jews whom
they encountered. Asher Lazar,
33, a reporter for the newspaper
Haaretz, was seriously injured,
while Matatiahu Rosenberg, 31,
was wounded slightly.
The police fired into the air,
causing the knife-wielders to re-
turn to the demonstration, which
was shortly afterwards halted by
the police. Before the stabbings
occurred the police took few pre-
cautions to prevent Arab attacks.
What they did was give chase
to a number of Jewish youths
standing at the entrance to Jew-
ish streets, obviously on guard to
keep out would-be raiders. Ap-
parently the police were inter-
ested in finding out whether the
Jewish youths were in "illegal
possession" of arms.
Another Arab mob broke into
the commercial section of the
city and set fire to several cloth-
ing shops and private cars. Oth-
er stores were looted. Two Arabs
were reported injured by baton-
swinging constables.
Haganah Halts Jewish Reprisal
Attacks in Jerusalem
A barricade at the entrance to
the shopping district was shut
and manned by Haganah patrols
Behind it a large crowd of Jew-
ish youths massed and began to
surge toward the Arab districts.
However, the Haganah halted
the Jews, insisting that the police
be permitted to deal with the

It was impossible to halt all
reprisals, however. An Arab-
owned movie theatre on Princess
Mary street was set ablaze. A
huge cloud of black smoke rose
from the building and settled
over the surrounding district.
Arabs and Jews fought a sav-
age, hours-long battle in the no

Tel Aviv Wednesday while Brit-
ish troops broke up with gun-
fire an Arab mob assault on the
Jewish quarter of Jerusalem.

of the Committee, proposed that
Dr. Chaim Weizmann be chosen
as the first president of the new-
Jewish state. Moshe Shertok,
head of the political department
of the Jewish Agency who con-
ducted the Jewish case before
the UN, said at this gathering:
"My first feeling is that not
only has our cause triumphed
at Flushing Meadows, but the
UN has triumphed through ourj
cause. This is the first time that \
the UN and the civilized world j
have decided to create a new |
state. Its creation is a challenge
to the world to keep faith with
us. The Jewish responsibility is
not a bed of roses. Every step is
fraught with danger. Jews
throughout the world must sup-
port the Jewish state."
Later the American Zionist
Emergency Council, headed by
Dr. Abba Hillel Silver, char-
acterized the UN decision as "a
milestone in the history of the
world." The United Nations,
it asserted, had "ended 2,000
years of national homelessness
for the Jewish people."
Dr. Silver, surrounded by
press representatives, broke into
tears while giving a statement
to the press, and was unable to
continue. He later issued it in
mimeographed form. It empha-
sized that the Jews are highly
satisfied with the decision of
the General Assembly, which
marks a turning point- in Jew-
ish history.
'"This noble decision to re-es-
tablish the Jewish state and re-
store the Jewish people to its
rightful place in the family of
nations will redound to the ev-
erlatsing credit of the UN, and
will be recorded as one of the
most significant achievements,"
Dr. Silvers said. "The Jewish
people will forever be grateful
to the nations which contribut-
ed to the decision. We arc espe-
cially appreciative of the leader-
ship provided by the United
States and the Soviet Union, and
are happy that in the solution
of the Palestine problem these
two great powers worked hor-
moniously together.
"The Jewish people is keen-
ly aware of the great responsi-
bilities which the decisions of
the United Nations has placed
upon it and will do its utmost
to merit their confidence as it
moves forward into the new
day to fulfill the Mandate of
its destiny. The Jewish peo-
ple will strive to build the
Jewish state in Palestine in the
spirit of its heroic leaders of
the past whose teachings made
that country the Holy Land of
mankind.
We pray for the peace of Pal-
estine. We extend a hand of
genuine friendship to the new
Arab state which is to be estab-
lished in Palestine.

American Jewish Conference
Establishes Permanent Body
rl aC^AF' (ITA)-The American Jewish Conference con-
cluded its fourth session here following the adoption of a de-
cision, by 198 votes to six, to convert the organization into a
permanent representative body of American Jewry.
T o nQi B r',h' ne of ,he maJr menibers of the American
Jewish Conference, will still have to decide whether it will
Pt membership in the*------------------------------------------------
new organization. However, Frank
Goldman, B'nai B'rith president,
voted, as an individual delegate,
in favor the permanent body.
voting as individual deleg-
ates were Dr. Stephen S. Wise
president of the American Jewish
Congress; Mrs. Joseph M. Welt
' lent of the National Council
of Jewish Women: Col. Julius
Klein, president of the Jewish
War Veterans; Louis Segal, lead-
er of the Zionist Laborites; and
Dr. Israel Goldstein, General
Zionist leader.
A new interim committee is
slated to be elected within two
weeks to carry on the affairs of
the conference and to implement
its resolutions. The interim com-
mittee was authorized to elect
within 30 days a national board
)f elections to draft voting rules
ind fix a time and place for the
first session of the permanent
jody to be convened before Jan.
1, 1949.
The resolution recommend-
ing the conversion of the
American Jewish Conference
from a war-time organization
into a permanent agency to
act as spokesman for all Jews
in the United States on domes-
tic and foreign problems pro-
vides that "an organization,
democratic in structure and
representative of the Ameri-
can Jewish community, shall
be established to secure and
protect the rights and to pro-
mote the general welfare of
the Jewish people here and
abroad; and to enhance the
contribution of the Jewish
community to American Dem-
ocracy."
On the issue of including the
domestic scene, principally the
fight of anti-Semitism, within
the purview of the proposed
American Jewish Conference, the
proposal that the organization act
through the civic defense
agencies was carried. Defeated
was an amendment by Rabbi Max
Nussbaum, *of Los Angeles, to
strengthen the Conference. Gold-
man led the opposition to the
Nussbaum amendment which
would eliminate the language
"invite reports by the civic de-
fense agencies to the Conference"
and substitute that the Conference
would "recommend proposals to
achieve its objectives in these
fields."
A special seven-point resolution
was addressed to the Big Four
Foreign Ministers, who are now
meeting in London. It urged: 1.
That provisions be made in the
Austrian and German peace
treaties for reparations payments
to authorized Jewish bodies for
the injuries done the Jewish
people; 2. That the treaties in-
clude specific sections outlawing
anti-Semitism; 3. That provision
be made for the punishment of
war criminals. 4. That the eco-
nomic rights of the Jews be re-
stored, including compensation
for losses and the turning over
of heirless Jewish property to
recognized Jewish organizations:
5. That the Jews be given full
citizenship rights in those coun-
tries; 6. That the countries bo
forced to maintain the DP's with-
in their borders; 7. That repre-
sentatives of the Jewish people
be given the opportunity of pre-
senting the Jewish case before
the Foreign Ministers conference.
The Conference also called on
the Allied governments to compel
several neutral governments to
turn over some $25,000,000 in Ger-
man assets to the relief and re-
habilitation of the victims of
Nazism, as they had agreed to do
in negotiations with the Allies
Dr. Stephen S. Wise lost an
attempt to broaden the new group
with international Jewish
agencies. He was opposed by Louis
Lipsky, executive chairman of
the Conference.
Dr. Israel Goldstein, Confer-
ence co-chairman, and Dr. Maur-
ice Eisendrath, chairman, re-
vealed to the delegates that word
of U.N. broke up the pre-confer-
ence caucus meetings and merged
the Zionist and American Jewish
Congress blocs, meeting in ad-
joining rooms, in a victory cele-
bration pledging to work together
in a new area for Judaism. Point-
ing out that American govern-
mental financial, moral and poli-
tical support for Palestine is
needed more than ever, Dr. Gold-
stein declared: "We Jews of
America pledge ourselves to help
the infant Jewish state."

Leo Eisenstein to Receive Service
Award From Local B'nai B'rith
A citation for outstanding serv-
ice rendered B'nai B'rith in Mi-
ami will be awarded to Leo Eisen-
stein, a member of the national
organization for 26 years, at the
next meeting of Sholem Lodge,

*

Leo Eisenstein
Tuesday. 8 p.m., at Temple Israel,
it was announced by President
Sam Silver.
In accordance with its policy
of publicly honoring outstanding
members, Sholem Lodge will
recognize Eisenstein's top mem-
bership drive achievement in
1940, at which time he headed a
successful campaign to secure a
total membership of 1000 mem-
bers.
One of the original organizers
of Sholem Lodge B'nai B'rith in
1935, Mr. Eisenstein has continued
as one of its most outstanding
workers, Silver added.
Eisenstein is a past president
of the East St. Louis Lodge of
B'nai B'rith and is one of the
organizers of that organization.
He is a 32nd degree Mason, a
Shriner, a member of the Miami
Beach Elks, the Zionist organiza-
tion, the Civic League, the Beth
Jacob Synagogue, and the Miami
Beach Jewish Center.
In 1924, Mr. Eisenstein was ap-
pointed a member of the Board
of trustees of the Leo N. Levi
Memorial Hospital, Hot Springs,
Ark., a B'nai B'rith institution,
and continues to retain that of-
fice. He has been successful in
organizing a pop concert series
which was presented last summer

Federation Offices
Move to Beach
Marking its first move las!
week-end since its inception a
decade ago, the Greater .Miami
Jewish Federation is now located
at 420 Lincoln rd.. Miami Beach.
The entrance is on Washington
ave.
The Federation occupies the
mezzanine floor of the new Mer-
cantile Bank Building annex,
which has been renovated through
the cooperation and assistance of
Moses Ginsberg, an active citizen
and leading contributor to Fed-
eration.
Signalizing the growth of the
organization from a one-room of-
fice in the Congress Building,
where their first campaign raised
under $100,000 and where in larg-
er offices last year it raised $930,-
000, the new quarters now oc-
cupy 3,000 square feet.
In addition to campaign staff
offices, there is a completely out-
fitted clerical office containing
mimeograph, addressograph and
dictaphone equipment; a large
board meeting room which ac-
commodates 75 people: and a re-
ception room. When completed,
the board room and reception
room will be decorated with
photo-murals depicting various
Federation agencies' activities.
The executive committee of
Federation is now considering a
plan whereby the board room
will be available to affiliated or-
ganizations for meeting purposes.

' Appointment of Joseph R. Stein as cha.rman of the 1948
Combined Jewish Appeal of the Greater Mia mijewish Federa-
tion was announced yesterday by Jacob Sher. president of the
organization.
"Our community is to be congratulated upon the fact that
(j,. Stein has consented to lead this drive," Mr. She: said in
announcing the appointment. "In my opinion, no better person
/COuld possibly have been chosen for this most important task.
"The 1948 campaign will undoubtedly be one of the most
dramatic in the history of our community and under the dynamic
leadership of 'Joe' Stein and the others who will work with him,
we can look forward to successful results with great con-
fidence."
A member of a family which has long been associated
jjlh Jewish philanthropic activities in this state, Mr. Stein
brings to the position of campaign chairman a thorough under-

of the Federation structure, its place in the com-
munity, and the needs of the many organizations and causes
which Federation serves.
Mr. Stein is the head of one of the leading wholesale
beverage concerns in this section of the state. He was formerly
chairman of the Florida State Racing Commission..
Mr. Stein's mother and brothers have been prominently
identified with Jewish philanthropies in Jacksonville, having
helped found Rivergarden, the Jewish Honje for the Aged of
that community.
Mr. and Mrs. Stein have two children, a daughter, Mrs.
Louis Gorfine and a son studying at the University of Florida.
With the Federation campaign due to occupy most of Mr.

that he will have to take time away from one of his chief de-

Jewish fhrldian
OFF THE RECORD
DREAMERS AND PROPHETS .. .
The immortal Herzl prophesied in 1897 that a Jewish state
would be established within 50 years Well. 1948 is the year
. There was trepidation in Jewish hearts as the time grew
closer for the General Assembly to make its historic decision .
The opposing forces, cleverly advised and manipulated, refused
to concede defeat. The huge pro-partition vote was a pleasant
surprise to Zionist leadership The swelling vote for partition
was the result of adoption of a sterner attitude by the United
States Russia's influence prevented Yugoslavia from voting
with the Arabs Success for partition was made possible by
the brilliant leadership of a number of Zionists Credit for
the result must go to Dr. Abba Hillel Silver, who galvanized
the American Zionist movement into action, and to Dr. Emanuel
Neumann, who, we hear, threw a great champagne party on
the day of victory ... A great job was done by Moshe Shertok
... Dr. Nahum Goldmann was of inestimable help in untangling
some diplomat.c knots ... Dr. Chaim Weizmann, whose 73rd
birthday practically coincided with the historic U.N. decision,
helped with his presence in the United States His recent
visit to the White House was more than a courtesy call on
President Truman .
Former Governor Herbert H. Lehman staked his reputation
for royal punctuality in an effort to determine whether Haiti
wouldn't abandon its announced anti-partition stand Mr.
Lehman came late to a U.J.A. dinner because he had been in
telephonic conversation with the President of Haiti for a full
hour Mr. Lehman spoke in English and the Haitian president
in French The inside story of Greece's peculiar stand was
revealed by a high U.N. official. This official told close friends
that Greece had made a bargain With the Arabs that it would
oppose partition if the Arab states voted in favor of a Balkan
commission The composition of the Assembly's Palestine
commission virtually makes it a U.S. commission Bolivia,
Panama and the Philippines are within the U.S. orbit and will
follow U.S. policy Zionists were jubilant over the composition
of the commission ... But there is some anxiety in Zionist circles
over the veto problem in the Security Council Most of the
Security Council members are anti-Zionist... Dr. Oswald Aranha
did a splendid job through the turbulent Arab sea of techni-
calities Adolf A. Berle, Jr., was helpful in switching Haiti's
vote Haiti was naive enough to believe that support of
partition would enable her to overcome obstacles in securing
a U.S. loan Rehovoth has many supporters to become the
capital of the new Jewish state But our prediction is that
Tel Aviv will be named The Jewish population in Palestine
when a state is set up will be but slightly more than ten per cent
of the world Jewish population Watch for an announcement
disclosing the name of the Jewish state and the composition of
the first government .
CHANUKAH NOTES .
There are Jewish communities where it is customary to
light Chanukah candles in the synagogues and public institu-
tions early in the morning Observance of the Chanukah
"mitrvah" is so urgent that when one has only enough money
to buy either wine for "kiddush" or oil for the Chanukah lamp
precedence must be given to the oil Women are obligated
to light Chanukah candles ... It is customary to light the
Chanukah candles from right to left, but one great rabbi re-
versed the order so as to comply with the Talmudic dictum
"wheresoever thou turnest, thou must turn only to the right" .
The "Rock of Ages" hymn was composed either in the 12th oi
13th century The "maggid" of Trisk, it is said, had a Chan-
ukah menorah of pure silver weighing several hundred pounds
and having winding stairs and a jute box on the top Aftei
the rabbi lit the menorah the jute box would play the "Rock ol
Ages" hymn The origin of the card-playing custom on
Chanukah is obscure Some say it began among German
Jews during the Black Plague as a diversion from frea Later
it spread to Italy and other Jewish communities ... At Bologna
Jewish leaders once issued a decree banning card-playing .
No one was admitted to community membership without pledg-
ing himself not to indulge in card games, not even with Chris
tians ... At Venice a rabbi, who in his youth crusaded agains'
card playing and who issued a number of brochures warninc
of the consequences of the evil, himself became addicted to the
evil When the rabbinate issued an excommunication de-
cree against card players the rabbi fought to void it, but without
ruccess .. One of the "Yeshivas" in Italy had a rule that "none
of the yeshiva students shall play cards under any circum
stances, not with others nor alone, except during the interim
days between a given holiday (chal hamoed), on Chanukah,
Purim and on circumcision and wedding days" Card play-
ing and the "dreidel," a sort of put-and-take contrivance, seem
ingly have their origin in the gambling instinct The latke-
eating custom, of course, requires no explanation.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5,
'JudecT Predicted For
Name of Jewish State
JERUSALEM (WNS)Authoritative leaders of Palestinian
Jewry have expressed the opinion that the new Jewish state to
be set up in a partitioned Palestine will again assume the
Biblical name of Judea, which was the name of the Jewish state
after the ten tribes had separated from it and formed the king-
dom of Israel. It will be the first Jewish state to be established
after 1877 years.
The state, which will be a democratic republic and will
follow the European pattern of Cabinet government responsible
to the Legislature rather than the American pattern of Presi-
dential government, will, it is believed, by most Jews here, have
Dr. Chaim Weizmann for its first president and David Ben-
Gurion, Labor party leader, for its first prime minister.
The flag of the new state will be the blue-striped white
banner of Zionism bearing the Mogen David in gold, according
to Jewish leaders here. In connection with the plans for the
setting up of the Jewish state, they declared that the new com-
monwealth will be influenced to a great extent by ancient
Jewish religious law. At the same time it was revealed that
units of Haganah, Jewish youth militia, are now training to take
over specific communities when the British move out of any
given area of the Jewish state. Jews are now also being trained
to take over certain governmental posts as these will be vacated
by British and Arabs.
The news that the United Nations was about to vote in
favor of a Jewish state in a partitioned Palestine electrified the
nearly 200,000 inhabitants of the all-Jewish city of Tel Aviv and
brought forth a frenzied impromptu celebration in the streets all
through the week-end. People danced, sang and embraced one
another.
Last Tuesday, while speaking in a packed theatre in Tel
Aviv, David Ben-Gurion, chairman of the Jewish Agency, de-
clared that the next few months will be crucial tests whether
the Jews are capable of functioning as a nation. Mr. Ben-Gurion
asked for friendly cooperation from the Arabs but stressed that
the Jews must be ready for any emergency. "The Arabs have
announced that they will not accept a United Nations decision
and stick to force," he said, "but we know that a majority of
the Palestine Arabs want peace and security. Agitators' efforts
until now have not found an open ear among the Palestine
Arabs, but it is possible that they will find it, and then we, the
minority, will be obliged to stand against the majority, and
we will stand."
The plan of the British Government in Palestine to sell Gov-
ernment land on the Haifa waterfront has been confirmed in
the official Palestine Gazette. The plan aroused a storm of
protest from the Jewish community here when it was originally
broached. Describing the transaction as incomprehensible, Mrs.
Goldie Meierson, political officer of the Jewish Agency, declared
that Jews were unable to understand how the present Govern-
ment could sell the land, which was the property of the people
of Palestine, not of the Government. The Jewish press has al-
ready declared that any sale concluded and any title given to
the land would be considered null and void by the Jewish
state when it is established.
Law and order will be maintained in Palestine and warfare
between Arabs and Jews will be suppressed by the British as
long as they remain in control of any area of the country. High
Commissioner Sir Alan G. Cunningham told a group of Arab
leaders in Beersheba. In the meantime Palestinian Arabs were
tightening their loosely organized system for what they say
will be an inevitable struggle for the control of the Holy Land.
The Arab Executive's political plans call for the establishment
in every Arab town and village of a "national committee" to
direct local Arab defenses. Two Arab youth groups have during
recent months been training with firearms and otherwise pre-
paring for guerilla warfare against the Jewish state.

Momentous UJ.A. Conference To
Consider American Jewry's Role
The most important national meeting of American Jewish
leaders since the decision on a Jewish State by the United
Lions will be held when the National Conference of the
United Jewish Appeal convenes in Atlantic City on Friday.
Decembei 12th, for a four-day session on the 1948 program for
Palestine upbuilding, overseas relief and rehabilitation and
retuqee aid in the United States.

Henry Morgenthau, Jr.,

Shcr we are ready for the

The Atlantic City Conference
-fll establish the 1948 goal of the
United Jewish Appeal. With the
,u"ure outlook of the 1,500,000
jews of Europe hanging in the
balance. American Jewish lead-

nancing greatly increased migra-
tion of Jews from the D.P
camps of Europe to Palestine.
Rabbi Irving Lehrman of the
Miami Beach Jewish Center,
who, together with Mrs. Monte
Selig and Max Oroviaz, com-
prise the Greater Miami Jew-
ih Federation overseas dele-
gation, will return to this
country on the eve of the con-
ference. It is anticipated that
Rabbi Lehrman will address
the gathering.
High on the agenda also will be
the need to make available
through the United Jewish Ap-
peal greater resources for the
reconstruction of Jewish com-
munities in Europe which have
been fighting an uphill battle
against economic instability and
food shortages to rebuild theii
social, economic and cultural
structures. In addition to a com-
prehensive reconstruction pro-
gram, the need for a direct relief
program continues to be pressing.
In Rumania, for example, fully
50 percent of the country's 430.000
Jews are completely dependent
on America's aid provided through
the United Jewish Appeal, and
in Hungary more than two-thirds
of the country's remaining 180.-
000 Jews are in need of assist-
ance.
If Congress authorizes a g
er flow of immigration to this

will devolve on the American

CHANUKAH: A GLOWING SYMBOL
By MARC H. TANENBAUM
When the pale yellow glow of Chanukah candle-light
spreads unevenly across the window-panes, a warm moving
spirit will surge through the breasts of Jews throughout the
world. Huddled about the candleabrum, Jewish families in
Boston. Buenos Aires, Hamburg, Shanghai and Tel Aviv will
usher in Chanukah 5708. with0
and cult upon tiny Judoa. the
Maccabees organized guerrilla
bands and assaulted the formid-
able Syrian flanks until they
reeled back in hasty flight.
But bef re going down in
crushing defeat, the Syrian pag-
ans triumphantly chalked up one
prayer book in hand and melody
in heart
Since the justly heralded
triumph of the Maccabees about
167 B.C.E. the twenty-fifth day of
Kislev (this year December 7)
has cmne to mean many things to
many Jews. To most, the eight
clay period has been symbolized
as: The Feast of Lights. The
Feast of the Maccabees. The
Feast of Dedication. To all. the
festive Chanukah has meant in-
spiration, invincibilit y. the
triumph of the human soul.
Scurrying back though the ave-
nues of history one finds few
epochs in the annals of man so
stirring, so valorous as that of
the .Maccabees. The breath of
freedom which today sustains
twentieth century man was first
exhaled by the modest priest
Mattathias of Modin, who with
his five sons struck the first blow
of resistance against the imperial
fascist, Antiochus Epiphanes, kins
of all Syria Incensed by the in-
vasion of Syrian hordes wlho
sought to execrate the Jewish
religion and spirit and to impose
their decadent Hellenic culture

achievement; they violated the
stiff-necked .lews' sacred shrine
in Jerusalem where they set up
a pagan alta in the Temple. But
the achievement was short-lived
Three years later, on the twenty-
fifth of Kislev, 1U7 B.C.E.. the
Temple was thoroughly cleansed
then solemnly dedicated. The de-
dication ceremonies lasted eight
days, The splendor of lamps and
torches, s >nga of triumph and
tribute, the iffering of sacrifices
and the kindling of lights in the
homes made the occasion memor-
able.
And as time slipped by the
Feast of the Maccabees, the Feasl
of Lights, the Feast of Dedication
delighted the palate of the ballad
and the raconteui who
delicately wove the legend into
thi tapeslo of Jewish history
Each in his iwn time and place
found new meaning. Jaid differ-
ent stress on the story of the
Maccabees. This was a gnat mili-
tary triumph, thought those who
dreamed oi Palestine as a re-

This, the rededication of the Tem-
ple, was a powerful religious vic-
tory, thought others who saw in
it that Israel's mission was only
to live unmolested on the holy
soil in accordance with the Torah.
But to the present day heir of
this Jewish epic who stands on
the banks of time and proudly
observes the stream of Jewish
tradition, there is a noticeable
undercurrent which swells the
tide and lends directions. The
Maccabean revolt, he sees, signi-
fies the first instance in human
history of men taking up arms
to defend freedom of conscience
and the inviolable right of little
people everywhere to live as they
will.
Yet it is more than that. The
Maccabees not only resisted op-
pression, they battered down the
sickening cowardice of furry-
minded Jews who. think the
melting pot" their salvation,
wished Israel to east off its trad-
itions, lose its identity and be re-
duced to an amorphous clot in
the human bloodstream, Because
if the Maccabees' determination
that Jews must survive as a
dignified, people among peoples.

made freedom of the human soul

mothers and children around the
world this evening light the first

claiming their renewal of faith

already acclaiming it as the most
exciting and important produc-

The,, was never any question
in Zanuck's mind as to his choice
tor the film's central character
the crusading magazine writer,
nil Green. In describing him in
her novel. Miss Hobson practical-
ly PUls the finger on Gregory
Pock: "He was in his thirties, tall
with an intelligent, decent
ace. Eyes and hair were dark
here was a quiet about him, an
absence of aggression, vet then
was no diffidence in his voice 01
manner." The part gave Peck hit
most challenging role and heav-
iest acting schedule to dale. One
'I the busiest actors in Hollvwood
since he ascended the heights, he
orked a total of 59 out of 60
lays required for filming Miss
Hobson's book.
Dorothy McGuire was assigned

The role of Dave Goldman, who
understands only too well the
the cause of Phil and Kathy's
difficulties, went to John Gar-

important role of his career, al-

the film is almost two-thirds over.
Zanuck was so anxious to obtain
Garfield for the strong and vital
role that he accorded him full
star status for his comparatively
lew days before the cameras.
Others in the outstanding case

vivacious fashion writer; Anne
Revere as Phil's liberal and un-
derstanding mother; June Havoc
as Phil's tortured and confused
secretary; Albeit Dekker as the
fighting liberal magazine editor;
Jane Wyatt as Kathy's "country
club set" sister; and Dean Stock-
well as Tommy Green.
The long-standing resistance of
famed playwright Moss Hart to
writing directly for the screen
was broken down when he was
persuaded by Zanuck to do the
screen play for "Gentlemen's

I entered upon my duties in Germany in May, 1946, with
the hope of completing them in four months. We then thought
that the Anglo-American Committee had solved the DP problem.
Instead, when I turned over my responsibilities to Judge Levin-
thai 15 months later, the problem had more than doubled. Not
only had most of the displaced persons remained in Germany
and Austria, where I later became Gen. Mark Clark's adviser,
but a vast flood of new refugees poured down upon us.

was unable to control age-old

anv Jewish community in the
world. In Zeilsheim alone a baby
is born every day.
Eighty per cent of the Jews
chose torontinue to live in camps
for greater security and care.
This was optional. They were
free to live in German cities if
they wished. But only a fifth of
them chose to do so. They fash-
ioned Jewish communities in
their camps. They converted
buildings into synagogues, or
erected new ones. Wherever
thl re were children, they estab-
lished schools, Cultural programs
fostered and higher acad-
emies of learning were founded.
Newspapers, magazines, books
were published.
A democratic pattern of com-
munity organization was estab.
lished, Camp committees were
elected which in turn elected re-
gional committees. At the top
stood the Central Committee
which in Sept., 1946, received offi.
eial recognition from Gen. Mc-
Narney. On a /one-wide scale.
the central committee undertook
many major functions to advance
the welfare of the DP's. In the
camps the inhabitants gradually
assumed the responsibilities of
their own administration so that
at present most camps are run
entirely by the DP's themselves.
I rame to Germany with the
fear that I would find neurotic,
psychopathic groups of Jews. I
lived among them for fifteen
months and now report that they
are normal human beings. 1
found excellent human stock
among them. Essentially, they
are a transplanted east European
Jewish community. They are ab-
normal, if that may be called
abnormal, only in their inability
to work out their own destiny.
Thi y are the victims of condi-
tions over which they have no
control. But, within the frame-
work of such conditions they are
normal, wholesome human be-
ings. This is not to deny the ex-
istence of the usual diversity of
human character and abilities,
nor to overlook the presence of
the usual personal problems. But,

Government has been transferred
to the Germans.
As a result the standards of
care are being lowered. As a re-
sult no further infiltrees are be-
ing given DP care. The conse-
quences have been appalling.
Over nine thousand hungry, har-
assed Jews have fled from Rou-
mania since the spring of 1947.
They were herded into filthy, un-
sanitary, crowded Vienna build-
ings designed to accommodate
only two thousand. Neither the
Army nor IRO provided any care
for them. Nor was the Army per-
mitted by War Department di-
rective to move them out of Vi-
enna to camps in the U. S. Zone.
However, these dreadful condi-
tions did not deter the people
from coming. They found protec-
tion from anti-Semitism under
the U. S. flag. They found food
to still their hunger under JDC
care, so they kept coming and ad-
vising their families to follow
them. The numbers will un-
doubtedly decrease during the
winter, but are likely to become
greater next spring.
The Germans, with the reduc-
tion of U. S. troops and the great-
er solicitude which they them-
selves receive, are now more
openly displaying their anti-
Semitism. This is being directed
against the Jewish DP's upon
whom the Germans cast the
blame for shortages in housing,
food, fuel, clothing. Jews are
abused in public places, stones
are thrown in the windows of
Jewish homes, anti-Semitic songs
are heard on the streets. Al-
though the Army punished anti-
Semitic criminals when caught,
it cannot extirpate the hatred
which would move six Germans
out of ten, according to a recent
study, to condone overt acts
against the Jews. There is no
doubt but that the withdrawal of
the U. S. Army would be fol-
lowed by progroms.

U concerned about this problem
d has taken steps to deal with
, They will undoubtedly do
Le good. But, essentially the
oroblem cannot be solved so long
as the Jews remain in Germany.
Realism compels us to face the
fad that mnsiderable numbers of
rVws wi" remain in Germany for
some years to come. Even if the
United Nations should reach and
implement an early solution of
the Palestine problem, it would
ake three or four years before
all of the DP's would be trans-
ferred to the Holy Land. My
own estimation is that seventy
five thousand DP's in the other
zones aid in other countries
bring the total up to a quarter of
a million. This does not take
account of Jews in other lands
who will w ish to go to Palestine
and who must be permitted to go
in some numbers lest all Eu-
ropean Jewry head for the DP
camps as the only way to get to
Palestine.
We fare, then, the need for a
four-vear plan. The plan should
include among other elements,
the following:
1. We will have to raise funds
as neve;- b fore. The care, trans-
fer ar.d re! a! ilitation of such vast
numbers of Jews, very largely
with Jewish resources, will re-

2. The best qualified American
Jewish professional personnel

It is shocking to find in the face
of this unprecedented crisis that
our most experienced and ablest
Jewish social workers remain at
home. The organizations should
make the same arrangements fol
temporary, emergency Sei vice as
congregations made for J,
chaplains during the war.
3. Now that solution seems in
sight, there should be imagin-
ative, statesmanlike, constructive,
Jrealistic planning for the ab-
sorption of such vast numbers
into Palestine. This should in-
volve a much more thorough re-
training program in G< rmany, In
my opinion it should eliminate
the objections to working in Ger-
man industry so long as the dis-
tinct DP status is maintained. At
best, the camp economy is a
make-work program. It can pro-
vide little training for the skills
required in Palestine. I would
object to the forced removal of
Jews from camps in order to
work in the German economy,
but I would not object to work
and apprenticeship on a volun-
tary temporary basis.
4. The cultural program must
be improved. Camps are still
bare of books. American Jewry-
should send, not sporadically as
at present, a steady stream of
singers, instrumentalists, actors,
artists, lecturers, I am convinced
that if properly organized, this
program would receive the co-
operation of the people who have
most to give.
We are confronted with an his-
toric test of the greatest magni-
tude and complexity. I trust that
American Jewry will measure up
to it.

which is sweeping the Jew.-, ni

Friday at the UN the gall
were full of Jewish people. One
of my friends was there and he
told me how men sat in the audi-
ence and read "Te'Fillim" during
the proceedings. There were
Chassidim in Shtrehmels and
kap '..is who stood in their places
in deep prayer. There was a
minion formed for Mincha. A
group of Poale Mizrachi youth
would not leave their places at
pi ceedings and overstayed
the Sabbath limit. They walked
back to their homes in Boro Park
from Flushing Meadows. Friday
night no one knew what would
happen.
This same friend was out at the
UN on Shabbat as well. The audi-
ence was not as religious but cer-
tainly as emotional. Everyone sat
at the voting. When France-
voted "oui" there was a gigantic
shoutvictory was assured. At
the conclusion of the sessions
there was no end of congratula-
tions. The Sunday Morgen Jour-
nal put it well:
YIDD1SHE MELOCHEH

The Forward looked proud, the
Day put yiddishe melocheh in
four inch letters and put the
brachah "she-he-chi-ya-nu-" un-
derneath with a translation of
Psalm 126 "B'shuv HaShem Et
. at Tzion Hayinu K'cholmim."
There was a Zionist rally at
which Weizmann spoke on Satur-
day night. It was at the St. Ni-
ls Arena on 56th St, It was
impossible to get inthe crowds
outside were tremendous and un-
manageable. Croups sang and
danced the H irah until they were
wearied.
Al the Seminary today the pro-
fessors were kissing, each other
in the halls. A special service was
arranged at four o'clock.
After a Mincha service we had
responsive readings in Hebrew
carrying out the implications of
the day. Ps. 126, Jer. 31 and Isa.
62. Professor Bavli, a fine Hebrew
poet then gave a moving speech
he just about broke down giving
it. We davened maariv, recited
the pledge from Ps. 137 "If I for-
get Jerusalem, let my right hand
forgetLet my tongue cleave to
the roof of my mouth, if I place
not Jerusalem above my chiefest
joy" and then broke into Hatik-
vah and Bialik's "Techazaknah."
instead of returning to classes as
scheduled, we remained to dance
and to sing until the breath was
taken from us. Our professors
danced and sang with us. What
emotion and feeling: Even the
dining room filled with song to-
night. Israel was happy. Let us
pray that we have reason to be.

thanuka StoryWhat Really Happened?
By Dr. Harry M. Orlinsky, Professor of Bible Jewish
Institute of Religion, New York
To many Jews the Story of Hanukkah is a simple story
about the religious persecution in Judea by a villain named
Antiochus, the Syrian King, and of the heroic resistance led by
the Hasmonean family, Mattathias and his five sons. The truth
is, however, that the origin of the Hanukkah story is more com-
plex than that. History as a rule is a complicated affair, involv-
ing national and Internationa"
political and economic factors, as
well as religious ones.
The history of Hanukkah, as i:
has come down to us, is found
of course in the Books of the
Maccabees and in the writings of
Josephus. Recent researches, how-
ever, especially by Prof. Solomor
Zeitlin of Dropsie College in
Philadelphia, and Avigdor
Tcherikover of the Hebrew Uni-
versity in Jerusalem, help to re-
construct for us the Maccabean
story in its true historical per-
spective.
After Alexander the Great, who
onquered the Near Eastern
vorld. died in 323 B.C.E.. the vast
Hellenistic (or Greek) Empire fell
ipart. One of Alexander's gen-
rals, Seleucus. came into con-
rol of Southwest Asia with head-
quarters in Ant loch in Syria, and
mother general, Ptolemy, took
off one imperialist power against mission to erect a gymnasiu
the other, while working vigor-
ously at the same time to pre-
serve and develop the Jewish
way of life. This pro Jewish
group was economically power-
ful, partly because the High Pri-
est's Office controlled the mar-
ket Of Jerusalem and through
it much of the city's economy.
The Temple in Jerusalem de-
rived its revenue not only from
the Jews in Palestine but also
from the Jews in the Diaspora.
Ever since the begii ning of the
Babylonian Exile in 587 B. C. E.
and even after the Edict of Lib-
eration issued in 538 B. C. E by
Cyrus of Persia who conquered
Bal ylonia, the bulk of dispersed
Jewry was to be found in the
areas north and east of Pales-
tine, the territory that came to

ver Northeast Africa with head- be governed later by the Seleu-
{uarters at Alexandria in Egypt.
This happened 2250 years ag I
Judea. the small Jewish state
situated between these, two rival
mpires, became a pawn in then
hands. In the course of their
struggle for power, the Seleu-
eid and Ptolemaic dynasties en-
tered into various treaties with
one another and with others.
Thus, by a treaty of 303 B. C. E.
Judea and coastal Phoenicia
were ceded to Ptolemy of Egypt.
Two years later, however, in 301
B. C- E., in accordance with a
new treaty, these two lands were
ceded to Seleucus of Syria. Thus
the Jewish people in Palestine
were caught up in an imperial-
istic tug of war. How did they
react to this situation?

leader was the High Priest in
Jerusalem, believed in playing

cid dynasties. However, over
the centuries a notable shift in
Jewish population occurred. By
190 B. C. E. the Jews of Egypt,
especially of Alexandria, had in-
creased considerably in popula-
tion and influence. Not only that_
but the increasing disintegration
of the Syrian Empire, due to gov-
ernment neglect and inefficiency,
made travel for gift-bearing
Jewish pilgrims to the Temple
in Jerusalem a hazardous and
forbidding affair. For these rea-
sons, the ruling group in Judea
as represented by the Temple of-
ficials began to side more and
more with the Ptolemaic court
in Egypt, rather than with their
political rulers, the Seleucid
court in Syria
However, there gradually grew
up in Judea another group of
"substantial" Jews who were
anxious to exercise political pow-
er befitting their economic sta-
tus. They w< re the tax-collect-
ors led by the Tobias family,
with headquarters in Jerusalem.
They waxed economically pow-
erful by ruthlessly collecting the
teavy taxes (ceded by Antiochus
III to Ptolemy V of Egypt after
192 B. C. E.) imposed by the
Ptolemaic government of Egypt
>n the peoples of Judea and near-
by lands. For payment they re-
ceived a sizable share of these
taxes.
The Jews ol this group were
in constant contact with t h e
Ptolemaic and Seleucid courts
whose favor they curried. And
SO they acquired the Hellenistic
outlook on life, changed their
names from Hebrew to Greek
and spoke Greek instead of He-
brew. They became fond of the
athletics which were so promi-
nent ;i feature of Hellenistic life
and they wanted very much to
build a gymnasiun in Jerusa-
lem. It was not that they were
so much interested in sports.
More than that was involved.
According to the law of that
timfc, city which received per-
m
could also strike its own coinagei
and those who frequented the
gymnasium were regarded as
citizens.
But despite their amassed
wealth, this Hellenizing group
could not gain the political pow-
er which the pro-Jewish group
held, So one of their represent-
atives bribed King Antiochus IV
of Syria with a considerable
sum of money and thereby got
Jason (Greek for Joshua) ap-
pointed High Priest in place of
his brother, Onias II. Thereafter
they elected a gymnasium in Je-
rusalem and struck their own
coinage. Moreover, they then
became "Citizens of Antioch" in-
stead of members of the Jewish
nation.
This assimilationist movement
gained momentum. Jason, who
proved to be somewhat on the
conservative side, was soon re-
placed by Mcnelaus (Greek for
Onias), a member of the Tobias
family. By 170 B. C. E., the Hel-
lenization and suppression of Ju-
daism was in full swing. Juda-

Chanuka Story-What Really Happened?
(Continued from
fled the commands of Antiochus
and the quislings. They contin-
ued to observe the Sabbath, the
dietary laws, the rite of circum-
cision. These loyalists, known
as Hasidim, "the Pious," would
rather die than give up their re-
ligion. Many of them did make
the supreme sacrifice. They were
the first martyrs in recorded his-
toiy
The Hasidim, however, were
rebels but not revolutionaries.
They argued that it was a sin
to bear aims on the Sabbath,
even though the fate of the Jew-
ish people and their religion was
at stake. It was then that Mat-
tathias, the son of Hasmoneus,
a priest of Jerusalem who lived
in the nearby town of Modin,
entered t h e scene. Mattathias
argued that the Sabbath was
made for the Jews and not the
Jews for the Sabbath, and that
to transgress a Sabbath was as
nothing if it made possible the
observance of all the Sabbaths
thereafter
The Ha-monean revolt, especi-
ally undei the astute leadership
of Mattathias' son, Judah the
Maceabee, gained some initial
miilitary successes. The road to
Jerusalem was opened up. Parts
of Judea and of Jerusalem were
liberated; and exactly three years
after it had been defiled, the
Temple was purified and rededi-
cated to God. This was on the
25th day of Kislev, 165 B. C. E.

In the meantime, however the

Jews and return to Syria at once
in order to prevent a rival
eral from gaining the throi e.
The peace terms offered by
Lysias made provision on]
religious freedom, not for econ-
omic and political independ
The Hasidim had never shown
interest in more than religious
freedom, c0 when the peace
terms of Lysias granted :
that freedom, they gladly
cepted the terms.
Judah and his faction, how-
ever, held out for political and
economic independence hut he
was outvoted; so he and his
forces withdrew from Jeru
to continue the struggle,
Within a few \. tei the

been Hellenizers or, their support-
ers, were brought b
power. Only then did the Hasidim
realize the terrible mistake- they
had made when thej accepted

'Miss Neptune' To
Launch Tournament
With little more than a week
remaining for the girl candidate
of the Greater Miami high
schools to submit photographs
and applications for the honor
of "Miss Neptune" in the thir-
teenth annual Metropolitan Mi-
ami $15,000 Fishing Tournament,
plans are complete also to se-
lect eight or ten attendants for
'Miss Neptune."
These girls will be honored by
fishing trips and formally pre-
sented at the ceremonies on the
tourney's opening day, January
11. The ceremonies will be cov-
ered by newsreels, press and ra-
dio. All photographs are to be
submitted to Dinty Dennis, tour-
nament director, at P. O. Box
2444, Miami, or at the new tour-
nament offices, 1376 North Mi-
ami Ave. It is open to all with-
out entry fees, and is directed
more for a girl who can fish
rather than a beauty contest.
With. H. H. Hyman as general
chairman and Richard Danners
as pageant director, the execu-
tive committee has voted for a
change in this year's opening
events. Instead of the long pa-
rade along the Causeway, this
year all craft will be gathered
in the waters between the Gov-
ernment Cut and South Miami
Beach, or just west of the jetties.

To most, the eight clay period has been symbolized as: The Feast of Lights. The Feast of the Maccabees. The Feast of Dedication. To all. the festive Chanukah has meant inspiration, invincibilit y. the triumph of the human soul. Scurrying back though the avenues of history one finds few epochs in the annals of man so stirring, so valorous as that of the .Maccabees. The breath of freedom which today sustains twentieth century man was first exhaled by the modest priest Mattathias of Modin, who with his five sons struck the first blow of resistance against the imperial fascist, Antiochus Epiphanes, kins of all Syria Incensed by the invasion of Syrian hordes wlho sought to execrate the Jewish religion and spirit and to impose their decadent Hellenic culture A Most Happy Chanuka Window Cleaning Service, Inc.

But to the present day heir of this Jewish epic who stands on the banks of time and proudly observes the stream of Jewish tradition, there is a noticeable undercurrent which swells the tide and lends directions. The Maccabean revolt, he sees, signifies the first instance in human history of men taking up arms to defend freedom of conscience and the inviolable right of little people everywhere to live as they will. Yet it is more than that. The Maccabees not only resisted oppression, they battered down the sickening cowardice of furryminded Jews who. think the •melting pot" their salvation, wished Israel to east off its traditions, lose its identity and be reduced to an amorphous clot in the human bloodstream, Because if the Maccabees' determination that Jews must survive as a dignified, people among peoples. because they routed the first fascist hei renvolk. because they made freedom of the human soul B hallowed ideal.

Asher Lazar, 33, a reporter for the newspaper Haaretz, was seriously injured, while Matatiahu Rosenberg, 31, was wounded slightly. The police fired into the air, causing the knife-wielders to return to the demonstration, which was shortly afterwards halted by the police. Before the stabbings occurred the police took few precautions to prevent Arab attacks. What they did was give chase to a number of Jewish youths standing at the entrance to Jewish streets, obviously on guard to keep out would-be raiders. Apparently the police were interested in finding out whether the Jewish youths were in "illegal possession" of arms. Another Arab mob broke into the commercial section of the city and set fire to several clothing shops and private cars. Other stores were looted. Two Arabs were reported injured by batonswinging constables.

Apt. 1 2-704S of the Committee, proposed that Dr. Chaim Weizmann be chosen as the first president of the newJewish state. Moshe Shertok, head of the political department of the Jewish Agency who conducted the Jewish case before the UN, said at this gathering: "My first feeling is that not only has our cause triumphed at Flushing Meadows, but the UN has triumphed through ourj cause. This is the first time that \ the UN and the civilized world j have decided to create a new | state. Its creation is a challenge to the world to keep faith with us. The Jewish responsibility is not a bed of roses. Every step is fraught with danger. Jews throughout the world must support the Jewish state." Later the American Zionist Emergency Council, headed by Dr. Abba Hillel Silver, characterized the UN decision as "a milestone in the history of the world." The United Nations, it asserted, had "ended 2,000 years of national homelessness for the Jewish people." Dr. Silver, surrounded by press representatives, broke into tears while giving a statement to the press, and was unable to continue. He later issued it in mimeographed form. It emphasized that the Jews are highly satisfied with the decision of the General Assembly, which marks a turning pointin Jewish history. '"This noble decision to re-establish the Jewish state and restore the Jewish people to its rightful place in the family of nations will redound to the everlatsing credit of the UN, and will be recorded as one of the most significant achievements," Dr. Silvers said. "The Jewish people will forever be grateful to the nations which contributed to the decision. We arc especially appreciative of the leadership provided by the United States and the Soviet Union, and are happy that in the solution of the Palestine problem these two great powers worked hormoniously together. "The Jewish people is keenly aware of the great responsibilities which the decisions of the United Nations has placed upon it and will do its utmost to merit their confidence as it moves forward into the new day to fulfill the Mandate of its destiny. The Jewish people will strive to build the Jewish state in Palestine in the spirit of its heroic leaders of the past whose teachings made that country the Holy Land of mankind. We pray for the peace of Palestine. We extend a hand of genuine friendship to the new Arab state which is to be established in Palestine. PAGE NINE American Jewish Conference Establishes Permanent Body rl A C ^ A F' (ITA) The American Jewish Conference concluded its fourth session here following the adoption of a decision, by 198 votes to six, to convert the organization into a permanent representative body of American Jewry. T • o nQi B r ,h ne of ,he ma J r me nibers of the American Jewish Conference, will still have to decide whether it will Pt membership in the* new organization. However, Frank Goldman, B'nai B'rith president, voted, as an individual delegate, in favor the permanent body. voting as individual delegates were Dr. Stephen S. Wise president of the American Jewish Congress; Mrs. Joseph M. Welt lent of the National Council of Jewish Women: Col. Julius Klein, president of the Jewish War Veterans; Louis Segal, leader of the Zionist Laborites; and Dr. Israel Goldstein, General Zionist leader. A new interim committee is slated to be elected within two weeks to carry on the affairs of the conference and to implement its resolutions. The interim committee was authorized to elect within 30 days a national board )f elections to draft voting rules ind fix a time and place for the first session of the permanent jody to be convened before Jan. 1, 1949. The resolution recommending the conversion of the American Jewish Conference from a war-time organization into a permanent agency to act as spokesman for all Jews in the United States on domestic and foreign problems provides that "an organization, democratic in structure and representative of the American Jewish community, shall be established to secure and protect the rights and to promote the general welfare of the Jewish people here and abroad; and to enhance the contribution of the Jewish community to American Democracy." On the issue of including the domestic scene, principally the fight of anti-Semitism, within the purview of the proposed American Jewish Conference, the proposal that the organization act through the civic defense agencies was carried. Defeated was an amendment by Rabbi Max Nussbaum, *of Los Angeles, to strengthen the Conference. Goldman led the opposition to the Nussbaum amendment which would eliminate the language "invite reports by the civic defense agencies to the Conference" and substitute that the Conference would "recommend proposals to achieve its objectives in these fields." A special seven-point resolution was addressed to the Big Four Foreign Ministers, who are now meeting in London. It urged: 1. That provisions be made in the Austrian and German peace treaties for reparations payments to authorized Jewish bodies for the injuries done the Jewish people; 2. That the treaties include specific sections outlawing anti-Semitism; 3. That provision be made for the punishment of war criminals. 4. That the economic rights of the Jews be restored, including compensation for losses and the turning over of heirless Jewish property to recognized Jewish organizations: 5. That the Jews be given full citizenship rights in those countries; 6. That the countries bo forced to maintain the DP's within their borders; 7.

J. Kopelowitz, chairman of the census committee, estimated that "a minimum coverage of 0 per cent of the population had been secured." The census had been extended through last Sunday to give enumerators additional time to complete the canvass of names assigned to them, following a report tea held at the McAllister hotel last week for majors and captains of the project. A tentative examination of reports submitted revealed a great mobility in the city's Jewish population, with a noticeable trend away from the northeast section. Early reports indicated a great influx of new families in the Southwest section, Coral Gables and North Beach, Kopelowitz said, "but the most remarkable fact of all," he emphasized, "is the large number of new names that were turned in—names of Jewish families which have no previous history of any connection with Federation nor any other Jewish organizations." Kopelowitz added that a committee of tabulators was being formed to analyze the reports.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER S, 1947 Chanuka Story-What Really Happened? (Continued from fled the commands of Antiochus and the quislings. They continue d to observe the Sabbath, the dietary laws, the rite of circumcision. These loyalists, known as Hasidim, "the Pious," would rather die than give up their religion. Many of them did make the supreme sacrifice. They were the first martyrs in recorded histoiy The Hasidim, however, were rebels but not revolutionaries. They argued that it was a sin to bear aims on the Sabbath, even though the fate of the Jewish people and their religion was at stake. It was then that Mattathias, the son of Hasmoneus, a priest of Jerusalem who lived in the nearby town of Modin, entered t h e scene. Mattathias argued that the Sabbath was made for the Jews and not the Jews for the Sabbath, and that to transgress a Sabbath was as nothing if it made possible the observance of all the Sabbaths thereafter The Ha-monean revolt, especially undei the astute leadership of Mattathias' son, Judah the Maceabee, gained some initial miilitary successes. The road to Jerusalem was opened up. Parts of Judea and of Jerusalem were liberated; and exactly three years after it had been defiled, the Temple was purified and rededicated to God. This was on the 25th day of Kislev, 165 B. C. E. Preceding Page) The chief genera] of the Syrian army. Lysias. took over personal command, and gel out to punish the rebel Jewish forces In the meantime, however the Syrian king, Antiochus IV, dud, and Lysias was compel! make a hasty peace with the Jews and return to Syria at once in order to prevent a rival eral from gaining the throi e. The peace terms offered by Lysias made provision on] religious freedom, not for economic and political independ The Hasidim had never shown interest in more than religious freedom, c 0 when the peace terms of Lysias granted : that freedom, they gladly cepted the terms. Judah and his faction, however, held out for political and economic independence hut he was outvoted; so he and his forces withdrew from Jeru to continue the struggle, Within a few \. tei the celebration of the first Hanukkah, and with Lysias 31 a ut ol sight, the new Hih Priest appointed by Lysias. Alcimus (who preferred the Greek form i I his .Jewish name, which was Elinkim), removed from office mosl of the Hasidim. and had of them executed. Those who had been Hellenizers or, their supporters, were brought b power. Only then did the Hasidim realize the terrible mistakethey had made when thej accepted Lysias'. terms. In desperation.

The,, was never any question in Zanuck's mind as to his choice tor the film's central character the crusading magazine writer, nil Green. In describing him in her novel. Miss Hobson practically PUls the finger on Gregory Pock: "He was in his thirties, tall %  with an intelligent, decent ace. Eyes and hair were dark here was a quiet about him, an absence of aggression, vet then was no diffidence in his voice 01 manner." The part gave Peck hit most challenging role and heaviest acting schedule to dale. One 'I the busiest actors in Hollvwood since he ascended the heights, he orked a total of 59 out of 60 lays required for filming Miss Hobson's book. Dorothy McGuire was assigned ihe complex role of Kathy, whose romance with Phil is threatened by something which, despite all her understanding and love, she cannot comprehend before it is 'too late. A "pixie" in 'Claudia." and a drudge in "A Tree Grows In Brooklyn." Miss McGuire goes glamorous as a smart New Yorker in "Gentlemen's Agreement." The role of Dave Goldman, who understands only too well the the cause of Phil and Kathy's difficulties, went to John Garfield, who considers this the most important role of his career, although he does not appear until the film is almost two-thirds over. Zanuck was so anxious to obtain Garfield for the strong and vital role that he accorded him full star status for his comparatively lew days before the cameras. Others in the outstanding case nclude Celeste Holm, as the vivacious fashion writer; Anne Revere as Phil's liberal and understanding mother; June Havoc as Phil's tortured and confused secretary; Albeit Dekker as the fighting liberal magazine editor; Jane Wyatt as Kathy's "country club set" sister; and Dean Stockwell as Tommy Green. The long-standing resistance of famed playwright Moss Hart to writing directly for the screen was broken down when he was persuaded by Zanuck to do the screen play for "Gentlemen's Agreement."

I entered upon my duties in Germany in May, 1946, with the hope of completing them in four months. We then thought that the Anglo-American Committee had solved the DP problem.

The consequences have been appalling. Over nine thousand hungry, harassed Jews have fled from Roumania since the spring of 1947. They were herded into filthy, unsanitary, crowded Vienna buildings designed to accommodate only two thousand. Neither the Army nor IRO provided any care for them. Nor was the Army permitted by War Department directive to move them out of Vienna to camps in the U. S. Zone. However, these dreadful conditions did not deter the people from coming. They found protection from anti-Semitism under the U. S. flag. They found food to still their hunger under JDC care, so they kept coming and advising their families to follow them. The numbers will undoubtedly decrease during the winter, but are likely to become greater next spring. The Germans, with the reduction of U. S. troops and the greater solicitude which they themselves receive, are now more openly displaying their antiSemitism. This is being directed against the Jewish DP's upon whom the Germans cast the blame for shortages in housing, food, fuel, clothing. Jews are abused in public places, stones are thrown in the windows of Jewish homes, anti-Semitic songs are heard on the streets. Although the Army punished antiSemitic criminals when caught, it cannot extirpate the hatred which would move six Germans out of ten, according to a recent study, to condone overt acts against the Jews.

The Pittsburgh conference was called by the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds for the purp se of securing community participation in UJA policy-making. Mr. Myers said. It was attended by the presidents and executive directors of the nation's thirty leading Jewish Federations. In their joint report to the local Federation's executive committee, Messrs. Sher and Myers said that the feeling at the conference was that in previous years, local communities had nut been taken into sufficient consideration in the planning of community quotas which wen: to make up the total national campaign coal A..-1 ht out at the conference was "the increasing concern uf tin country over the problem of adequately meeting local needs at h me while underwriting the overseas commitments of the American Jewish communiimmediate relief and rehabilitation needs in Europe and the resettlement of additional Jewish DP's in America and havens other than Palestine. It was pointed out. however, that relief needs ir> Europe would decrease as theses people were transferred to countries where they could be selfsufficient. The statement by many communal leaders that in order to do the job properly overseas, American Jewish communities must be maintained and strengthened—that local institutions such as hospitals, community centers, Jewish educational institutions, family service agencies, etc., had been too long neglected. The conference ended with the adoption of the_ following fivepoint program: 1. The campaign executive committee of the United Jewish Appeal on which there is community representation should counsel the UJA on the 1948 national goal-setting process in advance of the Atlantic City UJA conference and, subsequently, on the procedure for establishing local quotas. 2. For this purpose representatives of the 30 large communities not already directly represented on the executive committee should be invited to serve in an advisory capacity. 3. In order to achieve the common purpose of the UJA and the communities there should be a closer working partnership between them through more frequent meetings and greater use of the executive committee by the UJA for all policy decisions by which the communities are directly or indirectly affected. 4. For the same ends there UANUKAU nimn l\," the joint ri port stated. "Comishould be greater use by the munity leaders expressed the opinion that local needs in both capital and operating funds which had been put aside for the past few years can no longer be disregarded."

x PAGE FOUR +Jmisfifk>rMiajn FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5.1947 '1 1 i EDITORIAL ffOI K OF BESTiNY In an atmosphere charged with drama the General Assembly of the United Nations last Saturday voted the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine, ending the tragic 2,000-year exile of the Jewish people. The historic decision, which was carried by more than the necessary two-thirds majority, touched off joyous celebrations in every corner of the qlobe in which Jews now live. Perhaps the most moving celebration occurred in the displaced persons camps of Europe where 250,000 Jewish men, women and children have been waiting for more than 30 months for an opportunity to emigrate to Palestine and rebuild their broken lives. News of the decision to establish a Jewish State reached the DP camps in the early morning hours after most of the homeless Jews had retired for the night. The dispatches from the camps reported eloquently that when the news flash came over the radio "The Lights Went On All Over The DP Camps." In that terse description lies the poignant significance of the new hope that was born at the General Assembly. For the displaced Jews of Europe the lights are on again, illuminating the long hard road home. This is the beginning of the end of darkness for the Jews of Europe and of wandering too. We are on the eve of an era in which the Jews of Palestine and the Jews of America will determine the rate of Jewish immigration and Jewish development in the Jewish State. The opportunities will not be limited or circumscribed by government edict. Only our own sense of responsibility and participation will decide the scope of the work from now on. The National Conference of the United Jewish Appeal, which will be held in Atlantic City from December 12-15, will have before it major issues transcending anything that has been accomplished in the past. It will reflect the will of the American Jewish community in bringing to realization the decisions of the United Nations. The adoption of a goal for the 1948 United Jewish Appeal will in itself be the measure of American Jewry's readiness to seize an opportunity that has come to no other Jewish generation in the last 2,000 years. In addition to providing the resources for transplanting the remnant of European Jewry on the soil of Palestine, the United Jewish Appeal Conference must also act on the needs for continued rehabilitation and reconstruction in Europe and for adjusting the larger numbers of refugees that may soon be coming to the United States in the event of favorable congressional action. Never in modern times has any conference of American Jewish leaders been charged with such great responsibilities. We believe that the i it 1 mm 11 OF A NATION There is jubilation in Israel, for Zion has been redeemed. On such a sacred occasion one can only bow to the wisdom of the psalmist who sang: "When the Lord brought back those that returned to Zion We were like unto them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter And our tongue with singing." Yet the occasion demands more than rejoicing. It reguires awe, silence, contemplation. For how can we, who escaped the fate of the six million Jewish martyrs, dance to the tune of cymbals without pausing to remember that it was their martyrdom which gave life to our dreams. But there is consolation in the process of history. Our Jewish generation, which beheld a display of brutality unmatched in the annals of mankind, has also been fated to witness the great moment of deliverance from Galuth. We, who not long ago faced the imminence of extinction, are now on the threshold of national rebirth. Our feet are standing within the gates of Zion. "May they posper that love thee, Peace be within thy walls!" men and women who will participate in the Atlantic City conference will stand up to their responsibilities and accept the challenge which history has thrust at the American Jewish community. The remnant of our people in Europe is at last going home. We in America must be prepared to make every sacrifice to help them achieve true liberation—and the dreams that brought them through the fires of hell. RABBINICAL RFAtf EST The Greater Miami Rabbinical Association at its regular monthly meeting last Wednesday morning passed the following resolution: We the members of the Greater Miami Rabbinical Association, request every member of our respevtive synagogues, centers and temples to refrain from holding or attending any social affairs or parties on Friday nights.

F L day nights should be dedicated to prayer and Houses of Worship. Everything should be doneT help strengthen the value of the Sabbath and the devotion to our faith. CHANUKA Outwardly the struggle of the Maccabeans was one against barbaric oppression, against a tyrant who indulged in massacre as if it were a play thing. But the core of the conflict, the inner and more important strife, concerned itself with the opposition of two powerful faiths, two cultures, two completely dissimilar ways of life the RV brew versus the Greek. At the time when Mattathias called his people to resistance, Hellenism had filtered through the entire Middle East and even Judea was beg'lining to fall to the influence of the Greeks. Half of Judea spoke Greek, dressed Greek felt Greek. It was when Antiochus Epiphanes outlawed the Sabbath, built a statue of Zeus in the center of the Temple and sacrificed pigs on the sacred altar that the true significance of Hellenistic expansion became apparent The revolt began and it had to end in victory. The Jews could not sacrifice their past. It had come with too much struggle to be forfeited. The conception of one God was too lofty a height to be replaced with the diversities of pagan deities. The soft, easily enjoyed morality of the Greeks was too insipid a solution for the complexities of living. It missed the single firmness. It vacillated. It played with geometry and logic. The Jews demanded a truth, a way of conduct. They could not tolerate mental posing, mental arithmetic. They could not be satisfied with nice, philosophic nuances. Aristotlian analysis could not make up for the ecstatic righteousness that belonged to Moses. A culture was at stake. Judaism held the banner.. It would not permit itself, nor the world, to slip back. Zeus could not triumph over Jehovah. When the sons of Mattathias returned victorious to a Temple no longer desecrated by pagan deities, Hallel, the song of Thanksgiving, was sung. Thus they showed their gratitude to a God who allowed His children to struggle for the honor of His name. A single jar of oil was found undefiled in the Temple sanctuary. It had escaped the profanation of the heathens. It was lit and the flame burned eight days, thus allowing time for the preparation of new oils, time for the ritual of the new dedication of the TempleSince then it has been a Jewish custom during the eight-day Chanukah celebration to set the Menorah at night-fall to burn against the window so that a world whose heaven is darkened may behold light. As the meeting neared its end Jewish rejoicing in the corridors of the Assembly as well as all over the world, gradually became vocal and swelled .to a crescendo. In the corridors a rabbi, echoing the sentiment of world Jewry, repeated the Hebrew prayer: "This is the day the Lord hath made! Let us rejoice in it and be glad!" There were embraces and kisses and tears and excited laughter in the Assemly corridors. In Palestine itself Jews were up all night celebrating the arrival of their statehood after they received the news from New York around midnight Palestine time. In New York, the greatest Jewish community in the world, ten thousand Jews tried unsuccessfully to squeeze into a Labor Zionist meeting where Dr. Weizwere being enacted. In all parts of the world Jews, orthodox as well as others, as they had received the electrifying news over the radio that redemption had come at last to the martyred people of Israel and that Zion will be restored, muttered the traditional prayer for festive occasions and special occasions of rejoicing: "Blessed are thou, O Lord, our God, King of the Universe, who has granted us life and sustained us and brought us to this season Leaders Hail Vole What was in the hearts of Jews was given expression by Zionist leaders immediately following the vote. Dr. Chaim Weizmann declared that the decision t o establish a Jewish state is a "victory for internamann was speaking and where tional equity and cooperation" scenes of hysterical rejoicing I and said that "it is now our primary task to establish relations of peace and harmony with our Arab neighbors and to contribute what we can to the regeneration of the Middle East and the welfare of mankind." Mr. Emmanuel Neuman, president of the Zionist Organization ol America, hailed the action of the United Nations as "a meat moment in Jewish history, a triumphant vindication of the Zionist ideal at the hands of the highest international tribunal, which holds the promise of national freedom and early independence." While Jews rejoiced. Arabs were angry and threatening As soon as the vote was announced leaders of delegations of Arab states arose in the UN Assembly to announce that they will not recognize the partition decision, that it is unjust and contrary to the Charter of the United Nations, that they will not cooperate in its implementation and thai if there is any bloodshed between Jews and Arabs over the decision to create Jewish and Arab states, the UN members who voted for partition should blame themselves and not the Arabs. After three days of maneuvers times as if partition had a slim chance of obtaining the twothirds vote necessary for approval, the United Nations Assembly finally met on Saturday at 4 p.m. On Wednesday when it was expected that the vote would be taken, it was decided to defer th e voting until Friday. But on that day, at the request of France, it was decided to postpone the vote for another 24 hours in the hope that some formula might be found at the last moment for an agreement between Jews and Arabs on the future of Palestine. When the Assembly opened its last session on Saturday Lebanon, one of the Arab countries, exploded a bombshell which, however, proved to be a dud. Its representatives Camille Chamoun, stated that the Arab countries would be willing to agree on a bi-national state in Palesine with Jewish and Arab cantons enjoying local autonomy. There was no mention in the Arab statement about permitting urther Jewish immigration so that the Jews would not forever remain a minority in a bi-national state. It was proposed that vf etU ? ment of the Palestine problem be again refer and delays in the vote on part Ad U*r P*,""? r eferred the tion. d uring_which i t ^meTatI S LELS^BSTTSZ promise agreement by February. These proposals were defeated when Dr. Oswaldo Aranha of Brazil, chairman of the Assembly, refused to put them to a vote and instead supported the proposal of Herschel V.

"We must Snstrate at Atlantic City Shcr we are ready for the new challenge and the new opportunities for rebuilding the Jewish people." The Atlantic City Conference -fll establish the 1948 goal of the United Jewish Appeal. With the u u re outlook of the 1,500,000 jews of Europe hanging in the balance. American Jewish leaders are expected to effect a major shift in the United Jewish Appeal program—from relief to reconstruction and resettlement.

Rabbi Irving Lehrman of the Miami Beach Jewish Center, who, together with Mrs. Monte Selig and Max Oroviaz, comprise the Greater Miami Jewih Federation overseas delegation, will return to this country on the eve of the conference. It is anticipated that Rabbi Lehrman will address the gathering. High on the agenda also will be the need to make available through the United Jewish Appeal greater resources for the reconstruction of Jewish communities in Europe which have been fighting an uphill battle against economic instability and food shortages to rebuild theii social, economic and cultural structures. In addition to a comprehensive reconstruction program, the need for a direct relief program continues to be pressing. In Rumania, for example, fully 50 percent of the country's 430.000 Jews are completely dependent on America's aid provided through the United Jewish Appeal, and in Hungary more than two-thirds of the country's remaining 180.000 Jews are in need of assistance.

PAGE FOURTEEN • Jewish fhrldian OFF THE RECORD DREAMERS AND PROPHETS .. The immortal Herzl prophesied in 1897 that a Jewish state would be established within 50 years Well. 1948 is the year There was trepidation in Jewish hearts as the time grew closer for the General Assembly to make its historic decision The opposing forces, cleverly advised and manipulated, refused to concede defeat. The huge pro-partition vote was a pleasant surprise to Zionist leadership The swelling vote for partition was the result of adoption of a sterner attitude by the United States Russia's influence prevented Yugoslavia from voting with the Arabs Success for partition was made possible by the brilliant leadership of a number of Zionists Credit for the result must go to Dr. Abba Hillel Silver, who galvanized the American Zionist movement into action, and to Dr. Emanuel Neumann, who, we hear, threw a great champagne party on the day of victory ... A great job was done by Moshe Shertok ... Dr. Nahum Goldmann was of inestimable help in untangling some diplomat.c knots ... Dr. Chaim Weizmann, whose 73rd birthday practically coincided with the historic U.N. decision, helped with his presence in the United States His recent visit to the White House was more than a courtesy call on President Truman Former Governor Herbert H. Lehman staked his reputation for royal punctuality in an effort to determine whether Haiti wouldn't abandon its announced anti-partition stand Mr. Lehman came late to a U.J.A. dinner because he had been in telephonic conversation with the President of Haiti for a full hour Mr. Lehman spoke in English and the Haitian president in French The inside story of Greece's peculiar stand was revealed by a high U.N. official. This official told close friends that Greece had made a bargain With the Arabs that it would oppose partition if the Arab states voted in favor of a Balkan commission The composition of the Assembly's Palestine commission virtually makes it a U.S. commission Bolivia, Panama and the Philippines are within the U.S. orbit and will follow U.S. policy Zionists were jubilant over the composition of the commission ... But there is some anxiety in Zionist circles over the veto problem in the Security Council Most of the Security Council members are anti-Zionist... Dr. Oswald Aranha did a splendid job through the turbulent Arab sea of technicalities Adolf A. Berle, Jr., was helpful in switching Haiti's vote Haiti was naive enough to believe that support of partition would enable her to overcome obstacles in securing a U.S. loan Rehovoth has many supporters to become the capital of the new Jewish state But our prediction is that Tel Aviv will be named The Jewish population in Palestine when a state is set up will be but slightly more than ten per cent of the world Jewish population Watch for an announcement disclosing the name of the Jewish state and the composition of the first government CHANUKAH NOTES There are Jewish communities where it is customary to light Chanukah candles in the synagogues and public institutions early in the morning Observance of the Chanukah "mitrvah" is so urgent that when one has only enough money to buy either wine for "kiddush" or oil for the Chanukah lamp precedence must be given to the oil Women are obligated to light Chanukah candles ... It is customary to light the Chanukah candles from right to left, but one great rabbi reversed the order so as to comply with the Talmudic dictum "wheresoever thou turnest, thou must turn only to the right" The "Rock of Ages" hymn was composed either in the 12th oi 13th century The "maggid" of Trisk, it is said, had a Chanukah menorah of pure silver weighing several hundred pounds and having winding stairs and a jute box on the top Aftei the rabbi lit the menorah the jute box would play the "Rock ol Ages" hymn The origin of the card-playing custom on Chanukah is obscure Some say it began among German Jews during the Black Plague as a diversion from frea Later it spread to Italy and other Jewish communities ... At Bologna Jewish leaders once issued a decree banning card-playing No one was admitted to community membership without pledging himself not to indulge in card games, not even with Chris tians ... At Venice a rabbi, who in his youth crusaded agains' card playing and who issued a number of brochures warninc of the consequences of the evil, himself became addicted to the evil When the rabbinate issued an excommunication decree against card players the rabbi fought to void it, but without ruccess .. One of the "Yeshivas" in Italy had a rule that "none of the yeshiva students shall play cards under any circum stances, not with others nor alone, except during the interim days between a given holiday (chal hamoed), on Chanukah, Purim and on circumcision and wedding days" Card playing and the "dreidel," a sort of put-and-take contrivance, seem ingly have their origin in the gambling instinct The latkeeating custom, of course, requires no explanation.

My own estimation is that seventy five thousand DP's in the other zones aid in other countries bring the total up to a quarter of a million. This does not take account of Jews in other lands who will w ish to go to Palestine and who must be permitted to go in some numbers lest all European Jewry head for the DP camps as the only way to get to Palestine. We fare, then, the need for a four-vear plan. The plan should include among other elements, the following: 1. We will have to raise funds as neve;b fore. The care, transfer ar.d re! a! ilitation of such vast numbers of Jews, very largely with Jewish resources, will reTO OUR MANY FRIENDS AND PATRONS SEASON'S BEST WISHES BERNI HOTEL O. FISCHER, Mgr. 204 Biscayne Blvd. MIAMI. FLORIDA m quire the most generous giving I American Jewish history 2. The best qualified American Jewish professional personnel should he working in Germany. It is shocking to find in the face of this unprecedented crisis that our most experienced and ablest Jewish social workers remain at home. The organizations should make the same arrangements fol temporary, emergency S ei vice as congregations made for J, chaplains during the war. 3. Now that solution seems in sight, there should be imaginative, statesmanlike, constructive, Jrealistic planning for the absorption of such vast numbers into Palestine. This should involve a much more thorough retraining program in G< rmany, In my opinion it should eliminate the objections to working in German industry so long as the distinct DP status is maintained. At best, the camp economy is a make-work program. It can provide little training for the skills required in Palestine. I would object to the forced removal of Jews from camps in order to work in the German economy, but I would not object to work and apprenticeship on a voluntary temporary basis. 4. The cultural program must be improved. Camps are still bare of books. American Jewryshould send, not sporadically as at present, a steady stream of singers, instrumentalists, actors, artists, lecturers, I am convinced that if properly organized, this program would receive the cooperation of the people who have most to give. We are confronted with an historic test of the greatest magnitude and complexity. I trust that American Jewry will measure up to it.

One of my friends was there and he told me how men sat in the audience and read "Te'Fillim" during the proceedings. There were Chassidim in Shtrehmels and kap '..is who stood in their places in deep prayer. There was a minion formed for Mincha. A group of Poale Mizrachi youth would not leave their places at pi ceedings and overstayed the Sabbath limit. They walked back to their homes in Boro Park from Flushing Meadows. Friday night no one knew what would happen. This same friend was out at the UN on Shabbat as well. The audience was not as religious but certainly as emotional. Everyone sat at the voting. When Francevoted "oui" there was a gigantic shout—victory was assured. At the conclusion of the sessions there was no end of congratulations. The Sunday Morgen Journal put it well: YIDD1SHE MELOCHEH— MAZEL TOV The Forward looked proud, the Day put yiddishe melocheh in four inch letters and put the brachah "she-he-chi-ya-nu-" underneath with a translation of Psalm 126 "B'shuv HaShem Et at Tzion Hayinu K'cholmim." There was a Zionist rally at which Weizmann spoke on Saturday night. It was at the St. Nils Arena on 56th St, It was impossible to get in—the crowds outside were tremendous and unmanageable. Croups sang and danced the H irah until they were wearied. Al the Seminary today the professors were kissing, each other in the halls. A special service was arranged at four o'clock. After a Mincha service we had responsive readings in Hebrew carrying out the implications of the day. Ps. 126, Jer. 31 and Isa. 62. Professor Bavli, a fine Hebrew poet then gave a moving speech— he just about broke down giving it. We davened maariv, recited the pledge from Ps. 137 "If I forget Jerusalem, let my right hand forget—Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I place not Jerusalem above my chiefest joy" and then broke into Hatikvah and Bialik's "Techazaknah." instead of returning to classes as scheduled, we remained to dance and to sing until the breath was taken from us. Our professors danced and sang with us. What emotion and feeling: Even the dining room filled with song tonight. Israel was happy. Let us pray that we have reason to be. I spent Shabbat at the Jacobses. Uncle B. is having loads of trouble with that knee of his, but otherwise, all is well. Saw Grandma. She sees from the eye and gets around.

MUNg BUTTER-EGGS ERETZ ISRAEL -THE DREAM 15 OVER ERETZ ISRAEL -AN HISTORIC REALITY T HERE IS REJOICING in the land of Isracl-tKerc is rejoicing wherever men lore freedom and justice. For justice is finally at hand-and freedom about to be vouchsafed unto a longsuffering people. After nearly 1900 years of wandering, of buffeting by the winds of changing times and climes, of battering by the whims of tyrants, potentates and double-dealing demagogues—after nearly 20 centuries of hope against hope, the faith of the Jew has been vindicated, the hope realized. "Od I.o Ovdo Tikvasaynu .". It was a hope never lost —a striving that never stopped for even a day. as morning, afternoon and night, ISracl has prayed — "\'se*che' zehno Avnaynu ITshuv'cho li'tzion ." — "May our eyes behold they return unto Zion, O Lord ..." It was a faith backed up by sweat and blood ... and the tears — the ocean of tears —they were the fuel that kept the flame of faith burning as bodies bent their backs to rebuild the ancient soil The world now knows. The liberty-loving, peace-loving peoples of all the world ha\e spoken through the United Nations. And from that united voice of all humanity-the United Nations—has thundered a message of universal justice. The most promised land in history is, at last, a redeemed pledge, and the land of Israel, won by toil and earned by right, the land of Israel—even if only part of it—will now come, into its own by the independent, democratic rule of its own people. No more an alien people without a home, Israel shall be recognized as a nation among nations with a voice, a government, a passport that will proclaim Sholom to those who till now have known no peace. The Jews of America, free citizens of a free land, rejoice for their brethren and with their brethren over this new birth of freedom. May this glorious beginning of justice herald the beginning of a new era for all oppressed humans, and everlasting peace for all men and their brothers, the world over. JZ.

PAGE SIXTEEN +Je*-lst> ftoridlar FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5, 'JudecT Predicted For Name of Jewish State JERUSALEM (WNS)—Authoritative leaders of Palestinian Jewry have expressed the opinion that the new Jewish state to be set up in a partitioned Palestine will again assume the Biblical name of Judea, which was the name of the Jewish state after the ten tribes had separated from it and formed the kingdom of Israel. It will be the first Jewish state to be established after 1877 years. The state, which will be a democratic republic and will follow the European pattern of Cabinet government responsible to the Legislature rather than the American pattern of Presidential government, will, it is believed, by most Jews here, have Dr. Chaim Weizmann for its first president and David BenGurion, Labor party leader, for its first prime minister. The flag of the new state will be the blue-striped white banner of Zionism bearing the Mogen David in gold, according to Jewish leaders here. In connection with the plans for the setting up of the Jewish state, they declared that the new commonwealth will be influenced to a great extent by ancient Jewish religious law. At the same time it was revealed that units of Haganah, Jewish youth militia, are now training to take over specific communities when the British move out of any given area of the Jewish state. Jews are now also being trained to take over certain governmental posts as these will be vacated by British and Arabs. The news that the United Nations was about to vote in favor of a Jewish state in a partitioned Palestine electrified the nearly 200,000 inhabitants of the all-Jewish city of Tel Aviv and brought forth a frenzied impromptu celebration in the streets all through the week-end. People danced, sang and embraced one another. Last Tuesday, while speaking in a packed theatre in Tel Aviv, David Ben-Gurion, chairman of the Jewish Agency, declared that the next few months will be crucial tests whether the Jews are capable of functioning as a nation. Mr. Ben-Gurion asked for friendly cooperation from the Arabs but stressed that the Jews must be ready for any emergency. "The Arabs have announced that they will not accept a United Nations decision and stick to force," he said, "but we know that a majority of the Palestine Arabs want peace and security. Agitators' efforts until now have not found an open ear among the Palestine Arabs, but it is possible that they will find it, and then we, the minority, will be obliged to stand against the majority, and we will stand." The plan of the British Government in Palestine to sell Government land on the Haifa waterfront has been confirmed in the official Palestine Gazette. The plan aroused a storm of protest from the Jewish community here when it was originally broached. Describing the transaction as incomprehensible, Mrs. Goldie Meierson, political officer of the Jewish Agency, declared that Jews were unable to understand how the present Government could sell the land, which was the property of the people of Palestine, not of the Government. The Jewish press has already declared that any sale concluded and any title given to the land would be considered null and void by the Jewish state when it is established. Law and order will be maintained in Palestine and warfare between Arabs and Jews will be suppressed by the British as long as they remain in control of any area of the country. High Commissioner Sir Alan G. Cunningham told a group of Arab leaders in Beersheba. In the meantime Palestinian Arabs were tightening their loosely organized system for what they say will be an inevitable struggle for the control of the Holy Land. The Arab Executive's political plans call for the establishment in every Arab town and village of a "national committee" to direct local Arab defenses. Two Arab youth groups have during recent months been training with firearms and otherwise preparing for guerilla warfare against the Jewish state.

PAGE TWENTY-EIGHT fJewisHFkrtdter thanuka Story—What Really Happened? By Dr. Harry M. Orlinsky, Professor of Bible Jewish Institute of Religion, New York To many Jews the Story of Hanukkah is a simple story about the religious persecution in Judea by a villain named Antiochus, the Syrian King, and of the heroic resistance led by the Hasmonean family, Mattathias and his five sons. The truth is, however, that the origin of the Hanukkah story is more complex than that. History as a rule is a complicated affair, involving national and Internationa" political and economic factors, as well as religious ones. The history of Hanukkah, as i: has come down to us, is found of course in the Books of the Maccabees and in the writings of Josephus. Recent researches, however, especially by Prof. Solomor Zeitlin of Dropsie College in Philadelphia, and Avigdor Tcherikover of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, help to reconstruct for us the Maccabean story in its true historical perspective. After Alexander the Great, who onquered the Near Eastern vorld. died in 323 B.C.E.. the vast Hellenistic (or Greek) Empire fell ipart. One of Alexander's gen•rals, Seleucus. came into conrol of Southwest Asia with headquarters in Ant loch in Syria, and mother general, Ptolemy, took off one imperialist power against mission to erect a gymnasiu the other, while working vigorously at the same time to preserve and develop the Jewish way of life. This pro Jewish group was economically powerful, partly because the High Priest's Office controlled the market Of Jerusalem and through it much of the city's economy. The Temple in Jerusalem derived its revenue not only from the Jews in Palestine but also from the Jews in the Diaspora. Ever since the begii ning of the Babylonian Exile in 587 B. C. E. and even after the Edict of Liberation issued in 538 B. C. E by Cyrus of Persia who conquered Bal ylonia, the bulk of dispersed Jewry was to be found in the areas north and east of Palestine, the territory that came to TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AND PATRONS GREETINGS PARK'S MEN'S SHOP 221 E.

This happened 2250 years ag I Judea. the small Jewish state situated between these, two rival •mpires, became a pawn in then hands. In the course of their struggle for power, the Seleueid and Ptolemaic dynasties entered into various treaties with one another and with others. Thus, by a treaty of 303 B. C. E. Judea and coastal Phoenicia were ceded to Ptolemy of Egypt. Two years later, however, in 301 B. CE., in accordance with a new treaty, these two lands were ceded to Seleucus of Syria. Thus the Jewish people in Palestine were caught up in an imperialistic tug of war. How did they react to this situation?

E. the Jews of Egypt, especially of Alexandria, had increased considerably in population and influence. Not only that_ but the increasing disintegration of the Syrian Empire, due to government neglect and inefficiency, made travel for gift-bearing Jewish pilgrims to the Temple in Jerusalem a hazardous and forbidding affair. For these reasons, the ruling group in Judea as represented by the Temple officials began to side more and more with the Ptolemaic court in Egypt, rather than with their political rulers, the Seleucid court in Syria However, there gradually grew up in Judea another group of "substantial" Jews who were anxious to exercise political power befitting their economic status. They w< re the tax-collectors led by the Tobias family, with headquarters in Jerusalem. They waxed economically powerful by ruthlessly collecting the teavy taxes (ceded by Antiochus III to Ptolemy V of Egypt after 192 B. C. E.) imposed by the Ptolemaic government of Egypt >n the peoples of Judea and nearby lands. For payment they received a sizable share of these taxes. The Jews ol this group were in constant contact with t h e Ptolemaic and Seleucid courts whose favor they curried. And SO they acquired the Hellenistic outlook on life, changed their names from Hebrew to Greek and spoke Greek instead of Hebrew. They became fond of the athletics which were so prominent ;i feature of Hellenistic life and they wanted very much to build a gymnasiun in Jerusalem. It was not that they were so much interested in sports. More than that was involved. According to the law of that timfc, „ city which received perm could also strike its own coinage i and those who frequented the gymnasium were regarded as citizens. But despite their amassed wealth, this Hellenizing group could not gain the political power which the pro-Jewish group held, So one of their representatives bribed King Antiochus IV of Syria with a considerable sum of money and thereby got Jason (Greek for Joshua) appointed High Priest in place of his brother, Onias II. Thereafter they elected a gymnasium in Jerusalem and struck their own coinage. Moreover, they then became "Citizens of Antioch" instead of members of the Jewish nation. This assimilationist movement gained momentum. Jason, who proved to be somewhat on the conservative side, was soon replaced by Mcnelaus (Greek for Onias), a member of the Tobias family. By 170 B. C. E., the Hellenization and suppression of Judaism was in full swing. Judaism might gradually have disappeared in this period, but as FRIDAY, DTCEMBERS J^ fate would have it AntlZl of Syr la became atS for J.wi*survival. iTSS B. C.
