Hadassah Organizes
Israel Tourist Unit
Word has come from Mrs.
Samuel W. Halorin, president of
Hadassah, that Mrs. Aubrey
Eban. the wife of the Israeli dele-
gate to the United Nations, has
been appointed chairman of the
new National Tourist Committee
for Hadassah.
It is expected that improved
transportation facilities and the
desire to see Israel will result in
thousands of tourists visiting
there each year. Through the new
tourist committee with head-
quarters at 1 Harav Kook St.,
Jerusalem, and branch offices in
Haifa and Tel Aviv, Hadassah
feels that it will be able to pro-
vide them with facilities for see-
ing the country and its projects
under the best possible guidance.
Mrs. Alexander Kogan, presi-
dent of the Miami Beach Group,
has appointed Mrs. Ralph Spero
as chapter tourist chairman, to
work with Mrs. Eban. Mrs. Spero
has been active in Zionist work
for many years in Atlantic City
and is now a resident of Miami
Beach.

Mrs. Florence Finkelstein. and her assistant direct and coordinate
the activities of the Miami Section of the organization, with its
membership of 600. Here also the executive secretary and a large
and enthusiastic group of volunteers assist the foreign born-
Jewish and non-Jewish alike. They lend a hand in securing na-
turalization papers, maintain a school where English is taught
(with two classes in operation and a third planned for the near
future) and have a New Neighbor committee which counsels and
assists with marketing, housing hunting, job seeking (though
strictly speaking the latter is out of its province) and any minuter
of oher things. The council also conducts a search and location
service which has been instrumental in the reunion of many rela-
tives and friends. The group has established four scholarships at
the University of Miami, organized the Alexander Graham Bell
School for the Hard of Hearing and operated it until the county
took over, and contributes to schools for girls in Paris and Atnens.
The Miami office was established about a decade ago. Below is
pictured the cheerful waiting room of the office which is at Jia

1949
EDITORIAL
A \ea- Year's Message
By MORRIS KLASS
Executive Director Greater Miami Jewish Federation
The year 1949 maikcd a turning point in Amer-
ican Jewish communal and philanthropic activity.
Prior to 1942. the philanthropic efforts and
generosity of American Jewry poured forth to
rescue our people exposed to the Hitler terror.
During the war our entire energies were directed
to our own country's national war effort, helping
to bring victory on the military front. Following
the war, we endeavored to keep alive the pitifully
small remnant of men, women and children re-
leased from concentration camps until such time
as a permanent home could be found for them.
Then came the world-shaking events leading to
the creation of the State of Israel and the call to
its defense. Israel's rebirth speeded the migration
of over a quarter of a million persecuted war
derelicts, from countries where they were un-
happy and unwelcome, to their own homeland
where they could start anew. Although large sums
of money must still be raised to support this great
philanthropic movement the pressures of day to
day emergency situations is gradually easing and
will continue to do SO
The year ahead will open great vistas of op-
portunity for American Jewry to redirect its at-
tention from the great needs of other Jewish
communities to that of our ownthe largest,
the wealthiest, yet the one with the greatest
potential threat of disintegration, disintegration
resulting from the very freedom and opportunity,
the very comfort and ease of assimilation.
The creation of the State of Israel has already
had a tremendous impact on Jewish community
life in America loiisinj our prestige our self-
respect and our ego. Whether the cleavage of
national ties will now separate the Jewries of the
world or bring in a closer relationship on a cul-
hiral and spiritual level with those of our people
who are making their own destiny under their
own flag remains to be seen. The test will come
sec- whethei the negative factor of persecution
is the only cement that can hold the Jewish people
together. We in America cannot rely on the
spiritual forces emanatinq from Israel to avert the
impending dangers of assimilation and disin-
tegration that lie before us. This challenge to the
American Jewish community must be faced by
ourselves alone. If we cannot create and supply
our own springs of spiritual sustenance that will
strengthen and foster Jewish life in America and
assure the future of an American Jewish com-
munity, the largest and wealthiest Jewish com-
munity of the world will follow the path of the ten
lost tribes and become only a historic memory.
I am hopeful that the year ahead will be the
start of that "golden age of Jewry in America"
such as we saw in the early days of Spain with
the flowering of Jewish letters and culture, with
Jewish science and achievement contributing to
the human wealth of the world. In those days, it
was the springing up of great men that spear-
headed progress. Today, progress in this direction
must rest on our communal agencies. Our own
Federation, realizing these forces at work, is
now concentrating on community planning. It set
up. this year, two groups that are charting and
blueprinting two of the future welfare services in
our community.
The Committee on Care of the Aaed is working
on a community program to meet the problems
of our elderly residents, offerina them a chance
for self expression for happy and wholesome cul-
tural and recreational opportunities; for the meet-
ina of their health, housina and financial needs in
declinina years. The Jewish Home for the Aged
is launching a community campaign to increase
its facilities for institutional care.
In the field of recreational services for youth
and adults, the Recreational Committee of Fed-
eration is surveying the entire community, parti-
cularlv our new suburban areas, and is planning
to develop a procrram that will use all resources
available, and will offer to all our Jewish resi-
dents the best in cultural, recreational and leisure
time services, with community funds that can be
made available for this program.
In the field of Jewish education, our Bureau of
Jewish Education, is seeking to meet this
new
Equal To The Task
For the people of Israel, for the hundreds of
thousands of homeless Jews on three continents
for the Jews of America, the year 5709 was a year
of remarkable achievement.
The State of Israel, with its gates wide open to
the homeless and the displaced, became the focal
point for the reconstruction of Jewish life abroad
At the same time, one witnessed the emptyinq
of scores of Jewish displaced persons camps h
Germany, Austria and Italy.
This dramatic resettlement of large masses of
Jewish people could not have been made possible
without the generous and steadfast support of the
American Jewish community.
The Jews of America proved once again that
they can be equal to the demands of history.
The year 5710 will bring to the American Jew-
ish community challenges on the domestic and
foreign scenes. Once again the Jews of America
will prove that they are equal to these challenges.
challenge in creating amongst our children, our
youth and our adults an identification with our
own people, so they can understand and remain
true to Jewish tradition and Jewish ideals.
Our synagogues old and new are creating
better physical facilities for the spiritual guidance
of those members of the Jewish community who
identify with congregations and feel a part of the
religious heritage of our people.
We are soon about to witness the opening of
our new Mt. Sinai Hospital.
On all fronts, our community, now the thirteenth
largest Jewish community of America, is growing
in size, and in the understanding of its responsi-
bilities.
Our population will continue to increase at a
rapid rate; so will our problems. We can only
hope that our communal understanding and
solidarity will increase at least in the same pro-
portion as our needs. Your Federation will be
dedicated to this task in the year ahead.
On this New Year, I wish to extend to each and
every person residing in our community my best
wishes for health,, happiness and prosperity!

Temple Israel, the attractive Moorish style edifice pictured
above, is now being completely redecorated. Exterior and interior
are being painted and stained glass memorial windows are being
installed. Located at 137 N.E. 19th St., the building was constructed

Church and in its own building at 14th St. and what is now

structure, which is air-conditioned throughout, are a 700-seat
emple. offices, board rooms, Sunday school rooms, choir lofts,
rabbi's study, library, sisterhood lounge, and Kaplan Hall, which

2. That only retail meat and poultry maikets which have the
sign of the Greater Miami Vaad Hakashruth are endorsed
by the Vaad;
3. That any chicken market where the Shochet does not have
the plumba of the Greater Miami Vaad Hakashruth
n 1 DO to affix on the chickens is not en-
dorsed by your Vaad: and, therefore, the Vaad cannot
guarantee the Kashruth;
4. That the following are live poultry markets where the

6. That only retail meat and poultry markets that have the
sign of the Greater Miami Vaad Kakashruth are endorsed
by your Vaad.

Youth's Story
Aids Polio Drive
A 20-year-old Miami youth on
crutches touched the hearts and
loosened the purse strings of
members of the Hialeah-Miami
Springs Jewish Community Cen-
ter at a meeting last week.
The youth, Lawrence Frank,
who was stricken with polio 18
years ago, read of the National
Polio Foundation drive to collect
$14,500,000; and because he knows
what the money will mean to
victims of the disease, took it
upon himself to speak to the
group on the subject
As a result of his talk members
raised $130 which was turned over
to the Dade County Chapter of
the foundation.

Dear Editor:
Often in parlor room conversa-
tion the question is asked, "What
is happening to our Jewish youth?
Are they aware of the responsi-
bilities inherent in being a Jew?"
The past week I attended a con-
vention of the National Jewish
Youth Conference as a delegate
representing the Young Adult
Planning Committee of the Miami
Beach Y.
There I found the answer. I
was shocked at my own personal
inadequacies but I was thrilled
to see Jewish youth from all parts
of the country, gathered together
to face the issues confronting
them. True, they came to ex-
change knowledge ... but greater
yet they came with an aggressive
spirit that denied all self pity and
self lament. Theirs was a positive
action.
Community Responsibility, Is-
rael, World Jewry, Jewish Edu-
cation, Jewish Culture were sub-
jects that were discussed, ana-
lyzed and evaluated. And this
was not done solely ori. an in-
tellectual theoretical basis. These
were young people who were
leaders of their community and
needed and were prepared to act
on positive steps to reactivate
Jewishness. They debated, sang
and danced "horas" with a fervor
that would have made Israeli pa-
triots envious. But yet despite the
strong Israel sentiment this was
not a group that looked upon
Israel as their ultimate goal. They
were American Jews determined
to resurrect the culture, educa-
tion and tradition of our people
And now, whenever the ques-
tion is posed, I'm going to reply
that there need be no concern
over Jewish youth .but. .. tell
me, what are our adults doing
How do they express them-
selves in regard to Jewish educa-
tion and Jewish culture. and all
the other facets of Jewish life?
LVd they lead a positive Jewish
We? Are the adults prepared to
guide the community or will they
just follow along?
Sincerely,'
Seymour Gelber.

?AGE THIRTEEN
I'll Say...
In these troubled latter days, old beliefs, old faiths,
old conceptions are changing. The modern spirit
somehow seems to resist the concept of a faith
revealed by an Omnipotent Power. Fundamentalism
is desperately maintaining its ground against the on-
slaughts of the Evolutionists. Scientific inquiry has
all but demolished the belief in miracles. It is, there-
fore a pertinent question: What becomes of Judaism
if the belief in the miracles of the Old Testament is
undermined? If the awesome spectacle of the Diety
proclaiming the Ten Commandments on the flaming
and thundering Sinai is to be regarded as the fiery
dream of a sublime poet?
Decline of Faith in Revealed Religion
Wp cannot shut our eyes to the fact that the reso-
lute faith of the fathers no longer burns in the chil-
dren. The intelligent portion of the present genera-
tion questions, criticises, and doubts all values. It
accepts or rejects at will. Still, we have before us
the curious spectacle of our young people, schooled
in the evolutionary sciences, infected by the doubts
of the sceptics, yet clinging to the ancient creed of
historic Judaism.
Wh;it explains this strange phenomenon? This
leads us to a further inquiry: What is the essence,
the tore of Judaism? What is that distinctive quality
in Judaism that has kept it on earth for four mil-
lennia? Monotheism? Hardly. For the belief in a
single Universal God has been accepted by the re-
ligions of all civilized people. To understand the
peculiar mission ef the Jew, it is necessary to go
back to the beginning, to the days prior to miracles,
before ceremonies, rituals, or theologies were de-
veloped. We must then ascertain what were the
causes which produced Judaism; under what condi-
tions it arose; why it was born.
Vr of the Chaldees
Our information about conditions existing in the
ancient world is very limited. Modern science, how-
ever, comes to our aid and supplements our imper-
fect knowledge of the times of Abraham, the founder
of Judaism. The University of Pennsylvania has for
years been digging and excavating the ruins of the
old and forgotten civilizations of Mesopotamia. From
old inscriptions found under the earth, from pieces
of monuments, from remains of buried cities and
temples, it has pieced together evidence. Archaeology
has established that at the dawn of history, when
Abraham first came upon the scene, Ur of the
Chaldees, his birth place, was an old city, with an
old culture, with well established laws, with time
honored traditions. Ur Kasdim in Abraham's day
ranked as London, Paris, or Rome rank today.
Abraham: Founder Of Basic Judaism
By HARRY SIMONHOFF
The Chaldeans
The Chaldeans practiced agriculture, built cities,
temples, and skyscrapers of the Tower of Babel varie-
ty, called Juggernauts. They developed astronomy
and engaged in commerce. They fashioned beautiful
works of art, judging from specimens found in their
tombs. All in all, their civilization was highly de-
veloped, and in some respects even brilliant. But
there was one serious flaw in Chaldean life, religion,
and civilization. There was no place for mercy, pity,
or kindness. The Chaldeans were hardhearted, cruel,
ruthless. Their religion, their culture, their entire
attitude to life seemed to be devoid of the spirit of
generosity or loving kindness. A harshness prevailed
that seemed to crush out the gentler instincts in the
human breast. The archeologists have recently un-
earthed an incident so horrifying that it throws in
bold relief the conditions prevailing in those days,
and lights up in lurid and bloody colors the picture
of the times.
The Royal Holocaust
It seems that the young King of the country died.
This was taken by the priests or rulers as a sign of
the displeasure of the Gods. It was necessary to ap-
pease divine wrath by the offer of human sacrifice.
A depression was probably on; for the situation
called for the doing of something extraordinary. So
on the day the King was buried, the young queen,
her attendant ladies, the King's companions, and
officials of the palace, altogether number about
forty people, were put to death. As a sacrifice to
the gods, they were all buried in the King's tomb.
Excavators recently found this very tomb. Rich
jewelry, and remains of splendid garments were
about the skeletons, each bearing a hole in the skull.
It is against such a background, and as a protest
against such inhumanity, that Judaism was born.
Abraham's Protest
Such events probably occurred quite often. No one
among the Chaldeans seemed to consider such hap-
penings extraordinary, unjust, or abnormally cruel.
The moral greatness of Abraham shines forth in the
simple fact that he alone had the genius to perceive
the utter heartlessness, the wasteful cruelty that pre-
vailed unchallenged all around him. The Hebrew
legends tell of Abraham's efforts to change the reli-
gion and the morals of his home city. He was per-
secuted, and by a miracle escaped out of the burning
furnace. Abraham realized that he could do nothing
to change the existing conditions in his native land.
He therefore decided to go west, preach a new
morality and a new religion among new peoples. Per-
force, he had to become the founder of a new nation
that would forever cherish those principles which
would demolish the prevailing injustice and cruelty.
His New Religion
What sceptic would deny that Abraham's journey
from Ur of the Chaldees to Canaan marks a turning
point in human history? The religion of Abraham
consisted of kindness, hospitality to all strangers,
helping the distressed, and serving God with un-
questioning loyalty. He begs the Almighty to spare
the unspeakable sinful and cruel dwellers of Sodom
and Gemorrah, if there be but ten righteous persons
among them. In a word, the religion of Abraham was
a protest and a struggle against injustice, cruelty,
wrongdoing in any form; a benevolent tolerance and
an active love for his fellowman, combined with
complete trust in the One and Universal God. This
was the essential of Judaism in the days of Abraham,
and remains the core of Judaism today.
Significance of Judaism
It is strange how the life of Abraham was in minia-
ture the subsequent history of his descendents. In-
stead of conforming to the life around him and liv-
ing in ease and comfort, he left his home and native
land and became a pilgrim and a wanderer. The
Jewish people, instead of an easy assimilation into
the life of the people about them, have chosen to be
pilgrims and wanderers for thousands of years. Abra-
ham started something new in the world. His passion
for justice, and his inner call to spread the doctrine
of the Living God for a better humanity and for a
better world, has been the burden and the cry of the
long line of prophets in Israel. Paul the Apostle and
his Jewish companions also had this fiery urge when
they brought the "glad tidings" to the Gentile world.
Israel was true to the mission of Abraham, and by
opposing injustice, intolerance, wrongdoing and
cruelty, has been burned in the fiery furnace of per-
secution throughout the centuries. The Jew came
into conflict with every tyrant in history, from
Pharaoh to Hitler.
Injustice and cruelty has not been eliminated from
the earth. The Messianic Golden Age dreamed of by
the prophets is yet in the distant future. But the Jew
still maintains Abraham's optimistic faith when he
recites in the Rosh Hashona prayers:
And so the righteous will see and rejoice,
The upright will exult
And the devout break forth into songs of praise,
Because violence will close her mouth
And all wickedness vanish like smoke
For thou shalt blot the rule of tyranny from the
earth.
Tcmplo Isaiah Holds Services Here
The second floor of the ultra-modern Miami Beach Realty
Building, 1065 Dade Blvd.. is the temporary house of worship of
Temple Isaiah, the only Reform congregation in Miami Beach.
Founded in March of last year, the organization first met in a
large home at 4925 Collins Ave. but moved to present quarters
when confronted with litigation. The building contains a 300-seat
cross-ventilated auditorium, a large foyer, which is used as a
meeting room for the temple's youth group, and a compact kitchen.
In order to take care of a larger number of worshipers than the
present structure will accommodate. Temple Isaiah is conducting
its High Holy Day services in the auditorium of the Robert Richier
Hotel. At present there are approximately 100 families affiliated
with the congregation with the congregation; however, plans are
being formulated for an intensive membership campaign to M
launched next month. The group is also planning to construct its
own temple in the near future. Rabbi Moshay P. Mann is new
spiritual leader of the congregation.______________________________

Fund-Raising Drive
Having been prevailed upon to

Plan For Jerusalem Internationalization
Released On Opening Of UN Assembly
LAKE SUCCESS, (JTA) A
plan for internationalization of
Jerusalem was released here on
the eve of the opening of the
UN. General Assembly. The pro-
posal, submitted to the Assembly
by the UN. Conciliation Commis-
sion on the basis of a report from
its Jerusalem committee, calls for
establishment of a "permanent in-
ternational regime for the Jeru-
salem area." The 25-article stat-
ute calls for internationalization
of the entire cityboth old and
newunder U.N. authority.
In a brief preamble to the
statute signed by the three mem-
bers of the commission, the U.N.
group asserts that the draft
"would guarantee" each distinc-
tive group the "maximum local
autonomy," based on the division
of the city into Arab and Jewish
communities, as tentatively de-
signated on an appended map of
the Jerusalem area. The commis-
sion cautions that this should not
be interpreted as the final boun-
daries of the city and that it will
not prejudice the final over-all
peace settlement for Palestine.
The report has been submitted
for consideration of the General
Assemblywhich opens here next
weekas a basis for discussion.
While the draft purports to es-
tablish a permanent regime in
the exercise of full and perman-
ent U.N. authority over the Jeru-
salem area, in effect it sets up
only a weak U.N. structure con-
sisting of an Assembly-elected
commissioner, supported by a
mixed 14-man general council
consisting of five. Jews, five Arabs
and four members of minority
groupstwo judiciaries, and some
temporary guards. Their powers
are mainly restricted to safe-
guarding the safety of and access
to the Holy Places.
The territory of the interna-
tional area of Greater Jerusalem
would be expanded to a territory
of 100 square miles, including the
city of Bethlehem. The exact
boundaries of the area shall be
decided by an on-the-spot mixed
boundary commission, the report
says.
The report also recommends
that the entire area of Jerusalem
should be "permanently demili-
tarized and neutralized." It calls
on the parties concerned to guar-
antee to the General Assembly
public services normally "neces-
sary for the administration of
municipal affairs."
The proposed regime would
have none of the characteristics
of a strong political or legal gov-
ernment: it would not be backed
by security forces or by a munici-
pal budget. All U.N. officials are
to be subsidized by the United
Nations. The precise legal posi-
tion of the peoples of the area
is left in doubt.
The commission would be ap-
pointed by the General Assembly
for a term of five years and would
be responsible to the Assembly
for safeguarding the Holy Places.
He would preside over the 14-
man council, with powers to co-
ordinate common services, pro-
mote mutual and outside com-
merce, and to allocate contribu-
tions to the maintenance of com-
mon civil and religious endeavors.
A three-man international
tribunal, elected by the Assembly
and the Security Council, will
render decisions under its own
procedureson all disputes af-
fecting
relations between the
antee 10 me general /u*emuir i->' -.,, "l i,~,, nnwer that '.here shall be no_military parties It Mkji P-ers
or paramilitary forces or stocks
of war materials" kept in the
city. Another provision of the re-
port would limit the police forces
of each municipality to 500 per-
sons. ,
In defining the precise rights
and jurisdiction of the two muni-
cipalities, one of the articles of
the report states: "All matters
not reserved by the present in-
strument to the competence of
the U.N. Commissioner" and the
other organs of the international
regime "are delegated" to the
local authorities. ......
The U.N. plan would prohibit
mass immigration into either the
Jewish or Arab sector of the city.
It would maintain immigration in
one sector in the same ratio as
that in the other, so that if the
present, small number of Arabs
in the Old City were not increased
it would not be possible for more
Jews to enter the new city.
The day-to-day life of the two
zonal communities will remain
largely within their respective
autonomy, according to several
articles. A key provision permits
them to maintain only those of-
ficials, administrative organs and

Israel Ambassador
Offers Greetings
WASHINGTON. (JTA>A mes-
sage of greetings to the Jews of
the United States on the occa-
sion of Rosh Hashona was issued
here bv Eliahu Elath. Ambassa-
dor of Israel, through the Jew-
ish Telegraphic Agency. Trie mes-
sage reads:
'The Jewish year that has just
drawn to a close has been marked
bv great and inspiring achieve-
ments in Israel at the price of
untold hardships, and gives pro-
mise that the New Year which
we usher in with solemnity and
pious hope will prove still an-
other important landmark in the
establishment of Israel as a free
and independent state.
'The war that ended with such
a brilliant victory for Israel's
young armed forces was followed
by our honest and sincere at-
tempts to erase forever the bitter-
ness of such conflicts existing be-
tween Israel and her neighbors.
The armistice aereements showed
| our earnest desire to bridge the
i gap and come to closer relations
, with the Arab states. Our con-
tinued efforts to transform those
armistice agreements into per-
manent peace treaties aim at the
resumption of normal relations
with our neighbors for the bene-
fit of the whole Middle East.
"From the first moment of the
establishment of our state, the
doors of the country were opened
wide to admit scores of thousands
of Jews finallv coming home. The
small trickle at the start grew
i.-.to a massive flood that astound-
ed the world, for this represented
one of the greatest mass migra-
tions in history. The doors today
still remain wide open to all Jews
who seek the peace and stability
of their own homeland. This
homecoming is not the sole re-
sponsibility of Jews in Israel; it
is the responsibility of Jews every'-1
where, and the great community
in the United States which in the
past has responded magnificently
to the call, must continue to re-
spond in the future until every
single one of the immigrants is
absorbed into Israel's economy.
"Despite both external and in-
ternal difficulties, government in-
stitutions have consistently de-
veloped and there has been given
to the State of Israel, through its
elected and appointed servants,
the true stamp of democracy that
is the cherished heritage of the
Jewish people and the guiding
light of its leaders.
"Grave political and economic
hardships face the young and tiny
State of Israel. The road ahead is
full of unrevealed pitfalls. Huge
sums of money for capital in-
vestments to increase productivi-
ty both industrially and agricul-
turally are needed to absorb the
r.ew immigrants into Israel's eco-
nomy and develop to the full all
the resources of our state. Steps

have been taken to build houses,
to found new settlements and to
establish new factories. The
people of Israel proudly bear a
heavy burden today whose re-
wards will only be apparent in
the distant future. Politically
much remains to be done to de-
fine frontiers and integrate Jeru-
salem in the state's living struc-
ture. As a loyal and constructive
member of the United Nations
Israel will make its impress on a
troubled and uneasy world.
Democracy must find its true ex-
pression in Israel, a democracy
that can contribute to interna-
tional cooperation and to the well-
being of all peoples and all na-
tions.
"What is unfolding in Israel
today is a new social and na-
tional creation, the building of a
new society, linked by insepara-
ble ties with the Jewish past and
its heritage. What began with the
Biluim 80 years ago and was
demonstrated by the founding of
Potah Tiqvah. Gedera, Degania,
Nahalal and Negba is now taking
place with a hundred fold in-
tensification within the frame-
work of an independent Jewish
state. Each new year adds much
to that process, a phenomenon of
significance not only for the Jew-
ish people but for humanity.
"Let us hope that the New Year
5710 will play its part in this
tremendous undertaking in Israel
and that Jews everywhere will
continue to aid and -upport the
development of Israel.
"I convey to the distinguished
Jewish Community in the United
States my heartfelt congratula-
tion and best wishes for the New
Year. Leshana tova tikatevu!"

Mt. Sinai Story: From Boom-Time Hotel to Modern Hospital
For the past eight monthi the Nautilus Hotel,
famous landmark of the free-spending Florida boom
days, has been a beehive of activity, from which the
boom of hammers, the whir of saws and the slosh of
paint brushes have emanated. Sometime later in the
fall or early in the winter the public will have an op-
portunity to see the trasnformation thai has taken
place behind the walls which surround the hotel
grounds, and they will find that the 197-room Medi-
terranean Renaissance structure has been converted
into a modern, antiseptically clean hospital boasting
some of the finest facilities in the state.
It was back in January of this year that the city
of Miami Beach acquired the Nautilus Hotel property
from the War Assets Administration and signed agree-
ments authorixing the Mt. Sinai Hospital Corporation
io operate the hotel facilities as a non-profit, non-
sectarian hospital. Since that time the work has MH
concrete, tangibleand rapid: but the history of Mi-
Sinai goes beyond January of this yearindeed, it
goes back almost four years to March 11, 1946. when
the Mt. Sinai Hospital Corporation was chartered.
It also includes a tremendous fund-raising campaign
launched in December of that year and netting over
two million dollars. Of that sum. approximately
S500.000 is being used to revamp the facilities. This
is about $2,500 per bed. trustress of the Mt. Sinai
group, estimate. If a new structure had been erected.
cost would have run up to $15,000 per bed, they de-
clare.
The hospital is situated on a 23-acre palm-dotted
tract along the edge of Biscayne Bay at 4300 Alton
Road. Miami Beach. It is on the mainland? but the
grounds include 11-acre Collins Island, the site of
19 residential building, most of which have fallen
into disrepair as well as a presidential mansion in
the center of the island, which has been taken over
by the Mt. Sinai Auxiliary for their library; two-
acre Johns Island, where a swimming pooL locker
rooms and cabanas are to be found.
Depicted on this page is the Mt. Sinai Storythe
metamorphosis from hotel to hospital.
In the center photo is an aerial view of the hospital
with Johns Island in the background. Arising from
the ground like the massive seven-story arms of a
giant windmill, the cream-colored building is strik-
ing against the backdrop of blue and green. When
the doors of the institution are swung open, there
will be 170 beds for adults, private and semi-private:
30 beds for older children; 35 basinettes for infants.
At the right are the auxiliary buildings, which will
house hospital personnel.
Pictured upper left is a rear view of the building.
This section overlooks Johns Island and the bay
beyond it. The cylindrical structure at right is a fire
escape installed when the building was used as a
veterans hospital.
At top center is palm-studded Collins Island with
four of its 19 residences in the background.
A closeup of one of the wings of the hospital at
upper right reveals the ornate embellishments which
characterize Spanish and Italian Renaissance archi-
tecture. Since this picture was taken, the structure
has been given several coats of paint.
The gilded candelabra and columns, shown in
upper left center photo, bring to mind the balls and
fancy parties of the palmy twenties. This large, airy
hall will serve as a dining room for hospital personnel.
Despite the fact that every effort was made to use
existing structures without additional building, as
the picture in the upper right center discloses, oc-
casionally it was necessary to put up a few walls.
Left of the center picture, laborers beautify the
hospital grounds and just below, a volunteer works
on the books.
At the right of the center picture, an electrician
is shown adjusting wires in what will be a modern
gleaming kitchen. Below that, painters put a final
coat on the rear of the building.
Shown lower left is a side view of the institution.
The rounded window-enclosed section on the second
floor is the exterior of the dining room.
Reprise: The wing shown in the upper left hand
corner gets a little paint.

Changing Moods
Among The
Jews Of Italy
By DR. OTTO MILJEVIC
Coral Gables Coliseum Seene Of Holiday Services
(J.T A Correspondent In Italy*
(Copyright, l?t?. Jewish T.legraphlo
A"-'ivy. Inc.*
ROMEItalian Jews have, dur-
ing the past decade, gone through
a metamorphosis which, while not
as complete as that of the Ger-
man Jews, was still drastic. In
some senses the Italian Jews were
as assimilated within the Italian
culture as the German Jews with-
in the Germanic way of life.
The vast majority of the Jewish
population was not interested to
any measurable extent in Jews
of other countries, nor for that
matter in any aspects of Jewish
philosophical, political and cul-
tural thinking that was not also
reflected in Italian trends. In
short, the greatest bond between
the Jews of Italy and the Jews
of the rest of the world was the
religious tie.
The Jews of Italy, up to the
middle '30s. listened to the con-
cept of a Jewish state with com-
plete lack of comprehension of
what Zionism would mean for
Jews throughout the world. Their
attitude toward the Jews of other
countries was that of a stranger.
Complete assimiliation within
the Italian way of life was evi-
dent: their way of life automatic-
ally alienated them from Jews :n
other lands, and from Jewish-
ness. per se. Consequently, the
Italian Jews never evinced any
interest in the Hebrew language.
They were unable to sympathize
with the sufferings of persecuted
Jews elsewhere.
Life in Italy was a liberal,
tolerant one for the Jew. Sidney
Sonnino. a Jew. was Prime Minis-
ter: Luigi Luzzatto. a Jew. was
Minister of Finance: certain gen-
erals and admirals were Jews An
Italian Jew had the opportunity
to become a Cavalliere. Com-
mendatore. Baron or Count. Se-
cure in their way of life, Italian
Jewry was. in the past, only a
religious segment of world Jewry
There was little, or no. eoncern
for or interest in the concept of
a Jewish state. There appeared
to be no need for a separate
Jewish state as far as Italian
Jewry was concerned.
Most of the Jews in Italy were
merchants, manufacturers, engi-
neers and high government offi-
cials. A great number were work-
men or artisans. Few professions
were closed to the Jews. They
were in the Army and Navy, not
only as enlisted personnel but
as ranking officers. They wen
heard in local, state and national
politics. Mimo Sereni had been a
Minister in one of the first Cabi-
nets of the new Italian govern-
ment following World War I: Ugo
della Seta was a Senator: Ter-
racini. another Senator, had been
President of the Chamber. Many
Jews were teachers, in secondary
schools and universities, such as
the renowned Professor Ascoli of
the University of Palermo (Med-

icine). and the equally noted pro-
fessor of Philosophy Adolfo Rava
of the University of Rome.
Today, the spiritual fibre of the
Italian Jew has undergone a
tremendous change: the inner
face has become more Semitic
rather than Latin.
Joseph Goebbel's anti-Semitic
propaganda before and during the
war soon eliminated the sense of
security of the Italian Jew. The
Italians, it was true, condemned
and flatly rejected Goebbel's
measures against the Jewshid-
ing them, aiding them to escape,
and providing kosher food on
high holidays for those who were
hidden in the great Roman Basil-
ica in Vatican territory. The
Nazis, the Jews knew, encoun-
tered opposition and difficulties
from the natives when acting
against Italian Jews. Actually, not
only the Italian civilians, but also
the Italian authorities sabotaged
their own laws.
Before the Nazis came, there
never really existed any great
schism between the Italian non-
Jews and the Jews of Italy, al-
though the Jewish population, in
past centuries, lived in ghettoes.
The ghetto concept was not espe-
cially significant. In the Roman
ghetto today, indescribable pover-
ty, unhygienic conditions, crowd-
ed living quarters and illiteracy,
prevail. But the ghetto is no dif-
:i i :.'. from any other poor non-
Jewish district in Rome. Only
the religion of the inhabitants
differs.
The impact of the Nazis left its
mark in Italy. It emphasized to
the Jews that they were Jews like
all others. The Gestapo in Italy
lent impetus to the transforma-
tion of tiie Italian Jew to where
he has become more Jew than
Italian.
Tne Jews saw the misery of
Jf.-.; derers from country to country.
Now. they, too. had lost their se-
curity. They have come to under-
stand and appreciate Zionism.
They have learned that it was
not merely a question of isolation.
It was an ideal that bound Jew
to Jew. It was a concept that made
a Jew the equal, both as an in-
dividual and on the international

nUPAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1949
A Story Around Rosh Hashona
by HILDE MARX
(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following Is a deeply moving human Interest
,tory-a miracle of survival.)
It was the time just before the Rosh Hashona, in 1933. In
Ms downtown office in Chicago, Leo Luka was trying hard to
qet his most important work finished before the holidays. At the
age of 66 he was still a very young man as far as his capacity
for living was concerned; he was full of energy and the joy of
amrkinff: he loved his wife and .-_
showing in her face. There were
many nights of much worry, and
little sleep.
The letter Hanna was given was
unusual, indeed. It came from
Chicago. It was short, and it said:
"I read your article about Rosh
Hashona. I don't know anything
about you. All I do know is that
a person who writes and thinks
this way should not be living
where you are today. Would you
like to come to America? Please
answer"
The answer Leo Luka received
to his letter, about two weeks
later, was as unusual, or unex-
pected, as the letter had been to
Hanna. She thanked him for his
letter, thanked him very much,
and also for his suggestionand
told him at the same time that
she realized fully the extent of
her decision, but that she had
made it anyhow: to hold out, to
prove the right by this very fact
of holding out, and she explained
the need for some people, especial-
ly young and strong people, to
stay where many were in need of
help, and many more would be,
physically as well as spiritually.
She felt this to be the place where
she was needed, more than any-
where else.
From this resulted an extensive
correspondence between Leo and
Hanna. The histories were ex-
(Continued on Page 22)

his home with a youthful depth
of emotion, and he loved his
books as well as everybody else's
knowledge with a vigor that
would have honored a young man
who was just about to start life.
In addition to all this, his was
the experience of long years,
fruitfully spent as a conscious Jew
and a responsible and devoted
citizen of this countrythe coun-
try that had become his home
after he had come here as a youth
of thirteen from his native Poland.
That day in 1933 in Leo's office
all the telephones were busy, the
clerks were running back and
forth, the visitors dropping in and
out, and he was forever cleaning
his desk. There was a newspaper
apparently one of his visitors
had left it behind. Leo looked at
it wonderingly. It was written in
German, published in Berlin. It
was a Jewish paper, too. Leo,
with his extensive knowledge of
languages, had no trouble read-
ing it; there was really no time
to read, but could anyone throw
away anything printed without
even having leafed through it?
In this superficial scanning of
of the pages something suddenly
held Leo's attention. It was a
short essay, entitled "My First
Rosh Hashona Away From Home."
It was signed "Hanna Mann."
And it told of someone, apparent-
ly someone young, who had
never been away from home be-
fore these very holidays now ap-
proaching. It may not have been
a literary masterpiece, but it
touched Leo with its sincerity, its
genuine feeling, its lack of senti-
mentality, and its brilliance of
style. He read the essay once
more, carefully this time, and
then he wrote a short letter which
he gave his secretary to mail with
the rest of the day's correspond-
ence .
It was just after the Rosh
Hashona, in 1933. Hanna Mann
was just preparing some lunch on
the tiny stove which the landlady
permitted her to have in her tiny
furnished room, when the tele-
phone rang. It was the editor of
the Jewish paper she worked for,
as a freelancer. He asked her to
come to the office to get an un-
usual letter he had just received.
That was all he said. Hanna was
not particularly excited. There
wre so many unusual things
happening these days. And you
did not discuss them over the
phone. And most of them did not
turn out too pleasant, either. May-
be a new restriction. Maybe an-
other annoyance of some sort,
concerning her work. Maybe
some denunciationshe had no
feeling of any guilt, but then, you
did not have to be guilty of any-
thing outside of being Jewish,
when she put on her hat in front
of the mirror Hanna could not
help thinking that she looked

older, maybe, but something was

A recent article in a current periodical written by two
American Jewish students, relates that while on a trip through
Europe, they watched refuqees in southern France board a boat
for Israel at midniqht. Some of the boat's crew were young
Americans. The author notes that when these young sailors
learned that their visitors were
also Americans, they communi-

one another's good-will It would
be tragic, indeed, if those of us
who choose or are compelled to
live outside of Israel would be
subjected, as we are today, to a
constant barrage of frontal at-
tacks or stinging innuendo from
our brethren in Israel, question-
ing our sincerity as Jews or Zion-
ists, designating us as second class
members of the Jewish people,
declaring our faith in the possi-
bility of creative Jewish living
in America as illusory and our
:':" : ts to vindicate that faith as
futile. In current Zionist litera-
ture one is repeatedly told that:
"It is incumbent upon us to im-
plant in our youth the recogni-
n f the fact that it is impossi-
ble to live full lives as Americans
and at the same time creative and
genuine Jewish lives. The good
Z. rust has no alternative to
settlement in Israel." Every so
jften I have the feeling that we
need someone today who. from
Israel, should echo Jeremiah"s
ige to the 'Golah." "to build
houses and dwell in them, plant
a paradox and declare that to be
the whole truth is to commit
spiritual and intellectual suicide.
To build one's life on God's mercy
alone, of God's justice alone, on
absolute determinism, or on ab-
solute free will, is to invite either
fanaticism, madness or chaos or
all of them together.
The inescapble. logically insolu-
ble paradoxes of human life can
be met successfully only by an
act of faith which transcends the
paradox and the individual ele-
Golah. On the contrary, the two
appear as the opposites which are
indispensible for the highest and
noblest forms of unity. For God
has so created the world that dif-
ferences are as vital to unity as
likenesses. The unity of the family
is based on differences between
husband and wife, parents and
children. There can be no family
of husbands only, or of children
only. The unity of the economic
order is based on differences be-
tween agriculturalist and manu-
facturer, artisan and laborer. The
wonderful unity of our religious
traditions is the result of the
"Machlokot leshem shamayim,"
the differences between Priest
and Prophet, Hillel and Shammai,
Abaye and Rabah. Elijah Gaon

logically constituted rationale for
Jewish persons living in the "gi-
lut" is not enough. It must be asso-
ciated with basic emotional drives
as immediate and as compelling
as those which created the Zion-
ist movement. The legitimacy of
these emotional drives must be
recognized not only by the Jews
living outside of Israel, drives
must be recognized by those liv-
ing in Israel. Human beings need
the good-will of their fellow men
generally, but they need above
a!l the good-will and understand-
ing of their own kith and kin.
As Jews we need the good-will
of neighbors. But we also need

take ye wives and beget sons and
daughters and multiply ye there
and be not diminished."
Perhaps the time for such a
message is not yet ripe. Perhaps
the emphasis must still be on
"Aliyah," settling in Israel. But
the time will come when the
other message will be of the ut-
most importance and unless we
have men in Israel who under-
stand it now and prepare the
ground for it now. Israel may
later have no one capable of
( rmulating the message with au-
thority and the "Golah" will have
no one capable of receiving and
understanding it.
One of the experiences bearing
upon this problem which in-
scribed itself indelibly upon my
memory is associated with the
exercises opening the Hebrew
University on Mt. Scopus in April
1925. Professor Mordecai M, Kap-
lan was one of the visiting public
lecturers during those stirring
days, and I have never forgotten
the manner in which Dr. Magnes
introduced him. He said. "'I be-
lieve that a Jew can live a good.
full. Jewish life anywhere in the
world. But I have decided to live
in Eretz Yisroel. The gentleman
I am about to introduce to you
believes that a full. good. Jewish
life is possible only in Eretz Yis-
roel. But he lives in the G&lut."
Dr. Magnes did not go on to en-
large upon that paradox. He
merely referred to it as another
one of the many, strange para-
doxes abounding in human life.
For the truth of the matter seems
to be that the problem of the
relationship between Israel and
the Diaspora belongs intellectual-
ly to the same realm as the prob-
lem of the relationship between
God's mercy and His justice or
between God's omniscience and
man's free will. Its solution can-
not be propounded by a series of
logically irrefutable, syllogisti-
cally formulated statements. To
take hold of any one element of
will or determinism to vindicate
itself. Such faith steadfastly and
wisely refuses to be defeated or
paralyzed because of the intel-
lect's" inability to reconcile the
logical contradictions inherent
within the means which Faith
employs for its own purposes.
We must recognize that the
statement that only in Israel can
a Jew fulfill himself creatively
and Jewishly is an invitation to
the Jews of the Diaspora to com-
mit spiritual suicide. At the same
time the uneauivocal statement
that it is possible to fulfill one-
self creatively and Jewishly in
the Diaspora implies at least a
theoretic denial of the indispensi-
bility of Israel to Jewish life. The
two statements are absolutely
contradictory. Nevertheless men
of keen intellect and brilliant ex-
pression have supported each one
of the statements by logical
structures so sound and cogent as
to be beyond the possibility of
absolute refutation. To expect,
therefore, that one should make
a choice between life in Israel
or life in the Diaspora on the
basis of a logically formulated
argument is to ask that a logical
reason be given for choosing one
of two equally acceptable roads
to a desired goal. Let us cease
to goad one another to distraction
to make an unequivocal choice
in favor of one of two equally
valid alternatives. Let us not be

thing of the importance it held
many years back, when it was
the ian'guage of the prophets. To
be sure Eliezar ben Yehuda and
his followers coined many new
word-forms and idioms, but the
organic structure of the language
remains intact. Anyone with a
sense of history and language
cannot but be thrilled to hear the
majestic sounds and syllables of
the language spoken some thirty-
five centuries ago, today both
wntaneously and majestically
roll off the tongues of little Is-
raeli children.
Hebrew never was a thing of
the past." shut up in old books
nd manuscripts, and to trace its
listorv. and in particular in colo-
jial America, is an interesting
tudv. In early colonial America,
lebrew was a favorite subject of
tudy and created quite a vogue.
'o the early Americans the He
rew language was something
ery living. It was an indispensa-
ile tool to the trained ministers
f the time, but it was also a
iart of the equipment of all who
rould read the Bible in its origin-
tonguethe ambition of almost
11 the early settlers as so elo-
uently expressed by Cotton
ather in speaking of Governor
radford: "But the Hebrew he
iost of all studied because he
id he would see with his own
yes the ancient oracles of God
their natural beauty."
The Bible was the one familiar
ook being read morning, noon,
id night and everywhere its
ords kindled a sparkling en-
husiasm. These early colonists
'nund in it a strong analogy be-
:ween themselves and the Is-
'aelitc-s seeking freedom in the
Yomised Land. America was
lied "The Promised Land," the
ilgrims were referred to as "our
ppy Israel in America," Wil-
am Bradford, the second gov-
ernor of Phlymouth, as "Moses."
Mather called the early magis-
trates "ba'ale nefesh," (men of
spirit), and the ministers "hasidim
harishonim," (first pious men),
while John Winthrop, who was
governor of the Massachusetts
colony was called "Nehemias
Americanus," the American Ne-
hemiah after Nehemiah who ad-
ministered the Hebrews in Pal-
estine when they returned from
exile in Babylonia.
As soon as each successive out-
laying settlement was located and
established the community built
a house for the purpose of as-
sembling therein for the public
worship of God. This course was
called by Cotton Mather, a meet-
ing-house, the expression being
taken directly from the Bible. So
great was the interest in Hebraic
culture that children were com-
monly given Hebrew names. We
are all familiar with the early
New England names of Abigail,
Deborah, Hannah, Sarah, Samuel,
Benjamin, Abraham, Moses, Gers-
mom, Ezra, Jeremiah, and so
forth. The very manner in which
the Puritan daughters dressed
proved their familiarity with the
Bible. Except for the "nose-
jewels" the exhaustive list of the
prophet Isaiah might serve for
New England as for Jerusalem
and Judah.
The every day speech of New
England was the language of the
Bible. This influence of the He-
brew language has found its way
into American speech to this day.
About half the verses of the Book
of Psalms have virtually become
English idioms. Almost all of the
phrases of "Proverbs," "Song of
Songs," "Ecclesiastes," as well as
many others have been domesti-
cated by the English speaking
peoples. Hebrew words like
cherubim, seraphim, jug, ver-
million, rabbi, and so forth, have
become part of the English ver-
nacular. Cities with Hebrew

The study of the Hebrew lan-
guage occupied a prominent posi-
tion among the New England
clergy, the main profession for
which our earliest institutions of
higher education were founded.
New England could boast of a
number of outstanding Hebrew
scholars among whom were John
Eliot, Increase and Cotton Math-
er, William Bradford, John Dun-
ster, Ezra Stiles, Isaac Adding-
ton, Ethan Allan, Joseph Green
and Charles Chauncey, and sev-
eral others. Increase Mather de-
livered discourses in Hebrew. His
son Cotton wrote a relatively
scholarly dissertation on Hebrew
grammar. The prominent Puritan
and Hebrew scholar, John Udall,
translated Peter Marinius' He-
brew grammar, and compiled a
Hebrew dictionary. In William
Bradford's "History of Plymouth
Plantation," he expresses his deep
love for the Hebrew language and
reveals his knowledge of the
Bible. The work lists twenty-five
Biblical passages in the Hebrew
original together with the English
translations, and includes a He-
brew-English vocabulary of sev-
eral hundred words. The first
book of importance to be printed
was in 1640, and was entitled the
"Bay Psalm Book." It was writ-
ten by Richard Mather, John
Eliot, and Thomas Welde, and
contained an original translation
of the Psalms from the Hebrew.
During the first few decades
after the foundation of Harvard
College no course of study fig-
ured more largely than Hebrew.
From the first, in 1636, the date
of its founding, to the Revolu-
tionary War, the Puritans were
able to indulge a repressed desire
for more and better Hebrew,
after founding a college of their
own. It was the desire to under-

would try. She was at the point
most Europeans were at. whom
the Nazis for reasons of religion
or political thinking disliked; they
would try anything, no matter
how unlikely to succeed.

changed between the one who
had the wisdom and calm of ex-
perience, and of one who was
groping for sense amid turmoil,
for hope, for a decent life and
justice. Leo wrote much about
happenings within the Jewish
world of his country, and Hanna
and harder for her to continue
the argument since she felt how
right he wasbut still, she had
made up her mind. Restrictions
and terror increased at the same
rate as chances for a brighter
future, for survival itself, less-
ened. In time, it seemed inad-
visable to receive letters from
abroad: besides. Leo's constant
urging was proving too much for
Hanna's strained nerves: so she
stopped answering his letters.
That was in 1935.
It was just before the Rosh
Hashona, in 1937. Again. Leo Luka
was cleaning up his desk for the
holidays. Again, he wrote a letter
to Berlin Again, it was a short
one.
Hanna received this letter via
five d:fferent addresses. One
changed addresses often over
there, at that time. The letter read
somehow like this: "I think I
know why you stopped answer-
ing. Please, tell me just one thing:
don't vou see that I am right
yet?" ,
Hanna wrote him immediately
that she finally agreed with him,
that her hopes of being able to
win out had gone; and there was
no way how she could manage to
come to America. His next letter
was no letter at all; it was a big
envelope, containing an affidavit.
Hanna Mann was practically
thrown out of the Consulate with
the affidavit from a man who
was not only not related to her,
but who seemed much too old and
not nearly well enough to do. It
was very unpleasant over there
at the end of 1937 anyhow, and
the more so if it became known
that one had tried to emigrate.
Shortly after her unsuccessful
visit at the Consulate Hanna had
to be happy to be given a chance
to flee the country for one of the
neighboring countries in Europe.
In America, the President start-
ed warning the people and their
representatives of the dangerous
situation the whole world was
facing on account of the monster
that was rising to ever bigger
powers in Europe. In the small
countries in Europe that bordered
on Germany, anxiety gave way
to a mood of panic during the
summer of 1938.
Hanna spent that summer on a
farm, taking care of children. It
was the day of Rosh Hashona
when she received a notice from
the American Consulate of that
country, saying that a renewed
affidavit for her had come from
a Mr. Luka in Chicago, and ask-
ing her to appear.
When she went to the Con-
sulate the city already was in
turmoil. Facts mixed with rumors
about the approaching Nazig; the
facts were bad enough. People
migrated from city to country,
and vice versa; everything was
on the move. Nothing was steady
any morenothing in the whole
world seemed steady to Hanna.
Then, there was no money issued.
Then, there were no trains leav-
ing the country anyway. If one
obstacle seemed overcome, an-
other bulged up. But there came
the day when Hanna was told to
see the Consul General.
On her way to the appointment
Hanna felt much the same way
she had felt when she had gone
to get Leo's first letter, years be-
fore. She was not very excited,
not even pessimistic; she was
rather in a state of indifference.
A clerk led her into a room. Be-
hind the desk there sat the Con-
sul General, opposite him sat the
Vice Consul. A lot of papers were
spread between them. Hanna rec-
ognized some of Leo's letters, al-
wavs written on that funny yel-
low paper, and some copies of ner
own letters: the affidavit: even
the clipping of an article Leo had
written about her in a Jewish
magazine in Americait was en-
titled "A Budding Talent and
had made wonderful reading to
her After she had sat down the
Consul asked her to tell him the
complete story, of how and where
from she knew Mr. Luka. and all
the rest.
Hanna looked up at him.
startled. He had all the papers
there, her whole file, and he cer-
tainlv knew it all. But she com-
plied, and told the whole story,
just as it had happened. When she
was finished the Consul said: "All
right. Miss MannMr. Luka is a
relative of yours, isn't he?" Hanna
repeated, as she had said before,
that he was not. The Consul
looked at her intently: "But Miss
Mann, he is distantly related to
you, isn't he?"
Something happened to Hanna
at that moment; something fierce,
irresistible. It flashed through her
mind: does he want me to say
that? Do I have to say it to get
the visa? And at the same instant,
with all her indifference gone,
she knew that she did not want
to base a new life on an untruth,
no matter what. Her tone of voice
was everything but polite when
she said: "Mr. Consul, as I have
told you I am not only not re-
lated in any way to Mr. Luka, I
have never seen him in my whole
life, and these letters before you
are all I know about him." After
this, she felt completely emptv.
but relieved; everything would
be over now, but it could not be
helped. And the Consul heaved a
sigh shrugged his shoulders, and
looked at the Vice Consul, whose
face was now adorned with a
smile of the kind you give chil-
dren who talk nonsense
The silence in the room lasted
one second, or three hoursHan-
na could not have told. Then the
Consul spoke: "Miss Mann, would
you have the money to pay for
the visa?" She nodded, her face
blank. "You can get it in the ad-
joining room. Good luck to you,
Miss Mann" ...
Leo Luka received a cable tell-
ing him that Hanna would arrive
in New York on the 28th of the
same month. He could not ar-

The Year In Israel
fore did the Jewish people have
a sovereign parliament and a gov-
ernment responsible to it like
the one which was elected this
spring and later chose Prof.
Chaim Weizmann to be the first
President of the state. Much re-
mains to be done to perfect our
parliamentary procedure, and the
task of laying down a constitu-
tion is apparently being rele-
gated to a time more auspicious
for the explicit formulation of
basic principles.
The majority party in the
Knesset does not believe that the
strong Religious Bloc and the ex-
treme left, both of which it can-
not afford to antagonize perman-
ently, are at present capable of
agreeing on any act with such
far-reaching consequences, and
prefers to steer a middle-of-the-
road course by maneuvering the
most urgent statutes through the
Knesset in various ways. As a
result, Israel's legislature is now
working on the British, not the
American, model, and the pitfalls

TEL AVIVThe second Rosh Hashona we are celebrating
in the sovereign State of Israel, is naturally less exciting than
the first. The making of military and political history is giving
way to less electrifying developments, which are not less im-
portant: the everyday problems of economic development, im-
migrant absorption, building up ,,______ .____ __
of public institutions. l.hem comprehensively. Never be-
We have already become so
steeped in the new atmosphere
that we have to remind ourselves,
on special days, of the great sign-
ificance of the fact that, during
this last year, the integration of
immigrants in great numbers has
become an everyday worry, in-
stead of a far-off contingency
which would be dealt with in due
time when the fight for the open-
ing of the gates to our brethren
is won. Even the erstwhile ro-
mance of settling on the land is
disappearing, and pioneers must
learn to do without the cherished
thrill of evading the watchful
eyes of an administration intent
on enforcing restrictions on Jew-
ish settlements. Quantity has be-
come the watchword, as the qual-
ity of our endeavor is already so
well established that it has be-
come a matter of course.
Though the emphasis has shifted
to "workaday problems" such as
a thirty percent population in-
crease in the past year, we have
not yet forgotten the more specta-
cular stages of this year's strug-
gle. It was during 5709 that we
saw the last military operations,
that Israel's armed forces reached
Eylath on the Red Sea, and that
armistice agreements were con-
cluded with all our neighbors un-
der the supervision of the United
Nations and with the guidance
of its mediator, Dr. Ralph Bunche.
Along with these agreements
came a favorable adjustment of
borderlines in several areas,
chiefly along the road connecting
the central maritime plain with
the Valley of Jezreel and thence
to Eastern Galilee.
The determination engendered
by the massacres of the war years
in Europe in this community to
risk all in order to make possible
the gathering of exiles, sustained
us also in the face of the officially
neutral, but in fact hostile atti-
tude adopted by many countries
towards Israel at the time of its
emergence during a war.
The hysterical bitterness this
situation bred in part of the
younger generation, which culmi-
nated in the Bernadotte assassina-
tion, is now being rechannelled
into building up a country for
ourselves, to hold and to cherish;
former members of the now dis-
solved armed dissident groups are
even taking advantage of the
newly won freedom for settling
on the land and training reserves
for this purpose, while their
elected representatives are con-
tent with legitimate parliament-
ary opposition politics.
This year we saw so many first
events"or, as they are usually
termed, "the first after two thous-
and years"that it is hard to list
its inexperienced members must
learn to avoid are legion. The
same holds, to a certain extent,
for all Israel's public services.
Israel's postage stamps and cur-
rency are circulating widely, and
our ships have begun to call at
many ports. We have also become
full-fledged members of the
United Nations, although the re-
presentatives of our Arab neigh-
bors still purport not to acknowl-
edge our existence at internation-
al conference tables. In spite of
the express provisions of our arm-
istice agreement with Egypt, for
instance, the internationally
guaranteed freedom of traffic in
the Suez Canal area is still being
denied to us.
Moreover, international "fair-
ness," which decreed last year that
both the attacker and the at-
tacked, both established states
with long-standing arms-supply
contracts and a community
hitherto deprived of the right of
self-defense, should be equal be-
fore the international embargo on
military supplies, is now counten-
ancing all sorts of subterfuges to
further ensure "equality"such
as the training of Arab pilots by
ail the Atlantic powers, even in
the use of jet fighters, and the
supplying of "small arms" to the
Arabs in the face of an explicit
Security Council embargo.
Moreover, the so-called Berna-
dotte plan for the crippling of
Israel is cropping up at one in-
ternational assembly after an-
other under different guises. It
raises its ugly head after each
defeat because it is really dictated
by the strategic interests of va-
rious great powers, and the strug-
gle against it must continue; but,
thanks to the stabilization of our
international position in the
course of the last year, it is now
possible to conduct it through the
legitimate channels and on a
footing of formal equality.
In matters of security, as well
as economics and social services,
the young Jewish republic has
on its hands also a minority prob-
lem, and along with the adminis-
trative measures natural in such
a situation much new ground is
being broken by Israel in this
field. Our first state budget fore-
sees special expenditure on the
rehabilitation of Arab villages
whose occupants fled to the cities
during the war and are now de-
pendent on relief, together with
the increase of their productive

Israel In The New Year
By HENRY MORGENTHAU, JR.
(General Chairman, United Jewish Appeal)
kicn
The year 5710 dawns on a Jew-
kh state which has established
itself firmly and proudly among
t nations of the world-a state
.hose sovereignty and independ-
ence is recognized by the nations
,f the world.
The establishment of a modern,
lemocratic state on the ancient
,jl of Israel is of tremendous
enificance to the entire world.
ut it is of special significance to
,,,' Jews everywhere.
Israel's role in Jewish life was
mderscored. in the year just
nded which witnessed the ar-
[jval there of the largest number
rf Jeu-s ever to enter in a single
,ar_even surpassing the move-
ment of Jews into the Holy Land
luring Biblical times.
Israel lias opened up a new era
hope for the Jewish people.
~t the present time, homeless
s seeking to escape from the
iserv of Europe are streaming
ito Israel at the rate of 20,000 a
lonth. In the midst of a war
,-isis. new settlements are being
iuilt and the program of eco-
lomic and cultural development
being inaugurated. It is the
lim of the United Jewish Appeal
raise the funds that are needed
support mass immigration and
'ttlemcnt.
Last year, we were confronted
ith the ereat and heroic struggle
ir survival of the Jews of Israel,
tiis year, we are concerned with
ie struggle of immigration and
'onomic survival that has risen
jt of a glorious victory on the ]
leld of battle. A great homecom- '
ag to Israel is now in progress.
here is a mass exodus from
lurope. from the DP camps of
lermany. from the ghettos of
lastern Europe, from the hovels
id terror of North Africa
lousands and hundreds of thous-
ids of men, women and chil-
ren. on the movea great trek
y land and by sea to the land of
traelit is the greatest home-
iming of homeless Jews in re-
nt history.
But that homecoming has
eated serious problems. The
ising problem has grown to
rming proportions. At this
..ie. there are 68,000 in reception
impsliving in tents and bar-
icks. In the reception camp at
ardess Hanna, as many as four-
icn people are crowded together
one tent, with baggage piled
the bare ground, and with
ithing more than boards and
raw pellets for beds. Although
ie DP camps in Europe are clos-
g. we have to bear the guilt for
mdemning immigrants in Israel
new DP camps. Are we ready
jeopardize the entire future of
ie State of Israel by failure to
leet this problem? Can we per-
il sorrow and disappointment to
shatter the dreams of the home-
less who have at last reached the
shores of their Land of Promise?
Shall the land of Promise be
turned into the Land of Disil-
lusionment?
When I saw the young men and
women at the front lines in the
Negev, and in Jerusalem last year,
I was able to understand how the
people of Israel were able to
achieve the impossible in fight-
ing off the invading armies of
seven Arab states. The war for
independence opened the gates to
the homeless from every corner
of the globe. Now it is our task
to help the people of Israel keep
the doors open.
The spirit of sacrifice which so
heroically turned the tide during
the recent war has not been re-
laxed in any way. Today the Jews
of Israel are practicing a rigid
austerity to share their food and
their homes with the newcomers.
But all that is not enough. Israel
took at its full value the pledge
of American Jews that we could
provide the resources to transfer
and resettle hundreds of thous-
ands of our fellow Jews if and
when the bars on immigration
would be lifted.
I am sure we will not fail the
wanderers who have come home.
We will not fail the heroic people
of Israel who are making every
sacrifice to keep the gates open
and to give their homeless bro-
thers a decent home.
At a time when we are facing
critical needs, we must guard
against the feeling that the period
of emergency is over. It is true
that the shooting war in Israel
is over. The Jewish state has
come through its first year of in-
dependence with flying colors. Is-
rael's admission as the 59th mem-
ber of the United Nations has
given the new democracy a solid
footing in the family of nations.
The hopes of mankind for the
establishment of friendly rela-
tions among all nations have been
greatly advanced through the ad-
mission of Israel to the United
Nations. Israel's voice will be
heard clear and sharp in support

of justice and the protection of
human rights in all parts of the
world regardless of race, color or
creed.
But despite all this, it is not true
that the State of Israel is out of
danger. In its turning point from
war to peace, the victory that
was won by the heroic men and
women of Israel may yet be lost.
Of what use were the struggle
and the sacrifices of blood to se-
cure the freedom of Israel if we
allow the new state to be
strangled in its infancy by the
problems of immigration and eco-
nomic reconstruction? For more
tban a quarter of a century, hun-
dreds of thousands of American
Jews have worked and given for
the day when the ideal of a Jew-
ish national home would be a
reality. None of us are readv to
stop now and relax our efforts at
the verv moment when the sur-
vival of Israel as an independent
state still hangs in the balance.
The emergency which Israel
faces today is just as real as the
war which it had to wage a year
ago. It may be easier to grasp
the dangers of armed invasion. It
may be easier to respond emo-
tionally to the plight of a people
fighting with its back to the wall
against a much stronger enemy.
But any failure to recognize trie
present need may mean catas-
trophe.
It is most important that we
realize that the job of rescuing
our fellow Jewsthe job of re-
settlement in Israelthe iob of
maintaining the lifeline in Europe
and North Africais by no means
finished. Everything that we have
accomplished up to this point
hinges on the outcome of our cam-
paign. The future of Israel itself
depends on the United Jewish
Appeal.
The work of rehabilitation in
Europe, the program in Israel
and the adjustment of refugees
in the United States are vital.
Each of the agencies of the United
Jewish Appealthe Joint Dis-
tribution Committee, the United
Palestine Appeal and the United
Service for New Americanshas
an indispensable role to play in
the great homecoming in 5710.
They form the chain of rescue,
the bridge of hope, the road to
final deliverance. Any lack of
support anywhere along the line
can disorganize the whole pro-
gram. There must be no weak
links because of lack of dollars.
The victory on the battlefield
must not be lost in the reception
camps for immigrants.

Among The

scale, of any people the world
over.
Slowly, they put into practice,
within their narrowed sphere, the
concept of Zionism. The various
Jewish communities in Italy are
now in constant contact with each
other, a phenomenon tnat aid not
exist before the war. The local
headquarters of these communi-
ties are located in all the larger
cities of Italy, excepting the is-
langs of Sicily and Sardinia,
which are without Jewish com-
munities. Twenty communities,
active and newly-awakened to
Zionism, encompass the whole
Jewish population of about 40,000
in Italy.
This latent awakening to Zion-
ism is being manifested in the
concern of the Italian Jews in
Israeli problems, and towards the
displaced Jews living in Italy
while waiting for emigration to
other lands. Social lines are not
drawn so narrowly, any more.
A manifestation of this new
spirit of Jewishness is seen in
the considerable number of Ital-
ian Jews who have emigrated to
Israel, and the numerous applica-
tions of those waiting for re-
settlement in Israel. Before the
war, emigration had been mainly
to South America. Emigration to
Israel, to re-create a new life
under entirely different circum-
stances, under a new concept of
statehood, is for the Italian Jew
a challenge, and risk, to his self-
chosen future of pioneering.
Another significant facet of
their re-birth in Judaism, is the
keen interest of all Italian Jews
in all forms of Jewish art. Last
season, many artists came from
Israel and appeared in Rome and
other Italian towns. Poets, sing-
ers, actors, dancers, orchestral
leaders, and musicians have in-
troduced the Italian Jew to the
culture and talents of Israel.
Where previously the audience
was composed primarily of Jew-
ish displaced persons marking
time in Italy, now more and more
Italian Jews come to absorb and
appreciate Israeli artistry and
ability. When motion pictures, de-
picting Israel or Jewish life in
the kibbutzim, are shown in
Italian theatres, eighty percent of
the audience are Italian Jews.
This attitude has created a
stronger bond towards the Jewish
homeland. To augment this in-
terim contact with the new Jew-
ish state, it is planned to send a
certain number of Jewish stu-
dents to Israel each year. Recent-

A Sonnet To The Flag Of David
The Flag of David over Israel flies,
And close beside, the Stars and Stripes are seen .
Here, hope for a neglected people lies
Americaa staff on which to lean.
Hadassah's work keeps both flags flying there,
So let us never falter nor retreat,
But make our gifts an answer to their prayer,
And help to bring the enemy's defeat.
We here who have so much, and ease,
Must share it with our brothers over there,
So we should not neglect our peoples' pleas,
Lest dreams of freedom vanish like air.
Dear Israel, oh may you never die,
But keep your flag forever flying high.

Originally organized as an Orthodox or semi-Orthodox
Jewish congregation in 1926, Ft. Lauderdale's Temple Emanu-El
was reorganized about 1932 as "a Reform Jewish congregation to
serve Hollywood, Ft. Lauderdale and all of Broward County." For
a number of years services were conducted in a rented hall, but
the structure pictured above was erected ten years ago, at 1801
South Andrews Are.. Ft. Lauderdale. The temple has a capacity of
about 250 persons. On High Holy Days and during the winter
season, 100 additional chairs are set up. Last March the corner-
stone was laid for an ultra-modern religious school building and
annex adjacent to the temple. Completed in June, the building will
be known as the Todd Kaufman Memorial in memory of the son of
Mr. and Mrs. Ben Kaufman. Dr. Marius Ranson has been spiritual
leader of the congregation since September 1, 1948.

fore King Solomon, he stretched
his wings and threw Solomon
four hundred miles out of his
kingdom. Thea Ashmedai dis-
guised himself as the King, fool-

aid of his maeic ring he forced
Ashmedai and his demons to as-
sist in the building of the great
temple in Jerusalem.
And then, much to our regret.
Uncle would tell us that his
stories would be continued on his
next visit.
Uncle finished his tea. and put
down the empty glass. He took
his knife and played with the
crumbs on the table cloth, just
as he had done when I was a
child. The fingers were older but
the lines of crumbs were the
same.

gave Uncle a smile of approval.
I too wanted to hear the story.
It had been so long since I had
heard a story from Uncle. See-
ing the old man again made me
recall vividly the warm charm
of his stories. I was going to have
the rare treat of reliving a cher-
ished memory.
Uncle carefully formed a tri-

I looked at Davey. too. and was
annoyed. The child was squirm-

the eagerness and wrapt atten-
tion that always greeted Uncle'--
offer to tell a story. And even
now. more than twenty years
later. I was still as anxious as
ever to hear one of his stories,
and that wonderful feeling of
anticipation was being reborn
within me.
Yet Davey was restless. He was
twisting his" small body with ob-
vious annoyance. Uncle looked at
my little son and there was
puzzlement in his soft eyes.
I glared at Davey. He caught
my silent rebuke and stiffened in
his chair.
"Uncle is going to tell you a
story." my wife said, smiling
down at him. She ran her fingers

"Do you know the story of
Ashmedai""
Davev shook h:s head.
Uncle launched into his oest
storv of all. the amazing adven-
tures of Ashmedai. It was the
storv that mv brothers and sister
and" I had "begged him to tell,
over and over again, when we
were Davey's age. sitting around
the long dining room table.
I listened and felt pathos in
the telling of the tale. Uncle had
selected Ashmedai. the best story
of all. and he was trying to tell
it in the best way he could. There
was a new element in the story,
something that had never existed
when I was a child. Uncle was
consciouslv tiving to do a good
job. He was the old actor, going
through his best lines with exag-
gerated emphasis, trying to move
the audience that was slipping
from his grasp.
I felt bitter toward my little
son. Why wasn't his very being
centered on Uncle, as was mine
when I was a child. Why was he
gazing at the grandfather's clock
in the corner of the room, then
at the water pitcher on the table,
then again at the clock, making
Uncle intensify his efforts in the
struggle to capture his interest?
And Uncle's best story, the
story of Ashmedai. King of the
Demons. .
I gasped involuntarily as I saw
Davey's lips curl downward, and
his small nostrils quiver. He
i his body into his mother's
arms, and broke out sobbing.
Uncle stopped telling how

"What's the matter. Davey!"
my wife exclaimed. "Tell mother
what's the matter, dear."
"It's it's seven thirty, and
'The Lone Ranger' is on." he
wailed. "I gotta listen to 'The
Lone Ranger'."
He turned around sniffling and
rubbing his wet eyes with his
fis'.s. My wife gave me a glance
of helplessness.
"All right, dear." she said. "Say
excuse me' to Uncle, and you
may leave the table."
He said a hurried "excuse me"
as he got up from the table. He
stepped quickly into the living
room and ran upstairs to his radio.
Uncle was making straight
lines out of the bread crumbs on
the table cloth.
"You'll have to excuse Davey's
behavior." my wife said feebly.
"He never misses "The Lone
Ranger.' That's way he was so
restlesshe was afraid he'd miss

Uncle smiled. "I understand."

The sad resignation in Uncles
smile hurt me. I knew he couldn t
understand. I wanted to tell him
that his stories were as good as
ever, but that Davey felt he had
heroes far more powerful than
David and Alexander and Solo-
mon. His heroes had silver bul-
lets and secret codes and super-
human powers. Through the in-
exhaustible media of his radio
and the comic books that lay
scattered about his room. Davey
met men who could speed through
the air more quickly than light
itself: who could lift buildings
and mow down armies and cap-
ture master criminals. Could
there be any comparison in Alex-
ander's ability to fly on an eagle,
or David's ingenuity in defeating
Goliath, or Solomon's magic
ring?
And the criminals! Did Ash-
medaithe great Ashmedai. King
of the Demonsdid he possess
political stooges, cosmic rays, in-
terplanetary armies, and a con-
stant supply of atom bombs?
I wanted to console the old
man sitting beside me, playing
with the crumbs. I felt a huit
compassion for him. I looked at
his dark thin face and remem-
bered vividly the glory that once
surrounded his stories. And I felt
a sad longing. I would never hear
the story of Ashmedai again, for
Ashmedai, the terrible King of
the Demons, was dead.

Will Jewish Holidays Change
Character In Israel?
By ADA OREN
TEL AVIVObservant Jews in
Israel, as everywhere, preserve
the traditional manner of cele-
brating Jewish holidays, and since
Orthodox Jews in different coun-
tries sometimes practice some-
what divergent rites, holiday
visits to the synagogues of the
various landsmannschaften in
such cities as Jerusalem are often
very interesting.
But the fact that precisely those
days which used to be hallowed
are now considered mainly in
terms of occasions for public
meetings and all forms of secular
entertainment by the non-Ortho-
dox majority of Jews in Israel is
giving rise to an entirely new
situation in the history of Juda-
ism, raising the problem of suit-
able Jewish holiday rites of
spiritual value for non-religious
members of the Jewish people.
*
Although this state of affairs
affects the greater part of the
local population in one form or
another, it is being tackled sys-
tematically almost only by the
small and highly organized agri-
cultural kibbutzim. These settle-
ments generally revive, to serve
in place of prayer services,
ancient festivities connected with
the farmer's calendar which re-
ceded into oblivion in the genera-
tions of Ghetto dwellers, but can
be adapted to modern needs.
Most prominent are the cere-
monies of the cutting of the Omer
on Passover Eve, Arbor Day on
the 15th of Shevat, and the bring-
ing of first fruits at Succoth,
which have again become secular
ceremonies of great emotional
power and the last two of which,
among other things, help educate
Jewish youth to love of the land
by suitable pageantry.
Purim parties, Chanuka and
Lag B'Omer, too, come natural to
local holiday workers, and so do
Oneg Shabbat meetings, while
most kibbutzim consider it neces-
sary to draw up for every Pass-
over a special Haggada of their
own which reminds listeners also
of more recent deliverances of
the Jewish people. The wording
is strongly colored by traditional
elements rubbing shoulders with
modern choir singing and other
interludes. It is interesting to see
how the course of these experi-
ments has led even some extreme-
ly secularist settlements back to
such traditional acts as the light-
ing of candles on all possible oc-
casions. All children demand this
when once they have had a
chance to witness this act in a
city home, and it is often amusing
to watch the parents justify to
themselves their giving way to
the obvious human need for ac-

Marxist dialectics.
The problem of
something of the
"higher soul" to holidays in non-
religious Jewish working com-
munities is now considered so
urgent by their members that a
special Histadrut seminary is held
from time to time on this subject
dedicated to the development of
a practice which began with the
first Arbor Day and First Fruits
ceremonies originally instituted
by the J.N.F. As group and other
popular dances are an important
item on the syllabus, a religious
youth organization recently found
it necessary to hold its own course
in group folk dances, which were
carefully screened so as to come
up to traditional standards for
mixed gatherings.

All in all, there exist now side
by side, as a result of these di-
vergencies, innumerable shades in
the manner of spending work-
free days and even High Holi-
days in Israel. While the world-
wide custom of more than usual-
ly elaborate meals and trappings
of the table and of inter-family
visiting have remained a common
feature in all sectors of the Jew-
ish population, two entirely dif-
ferent standards for the per-
meation of rest-days with spirit-
ual inspiration are being offered
at the same time by traditional
Jewish Orthodoxy and the secular
agricultural settlements.
The general run of town and
village dwellers are far less zeal-
ous than either of these opposing
groups, generally mixing several
features from both sources in dif-
ferent proportions and sometimes
drowning them all in general
apathy egendered by work-
weariness and a demand for crea-
ture comforts and "low-brow"
entertainment. While the Ortho-
dox and the common town atti-
tudes are evident the world over,
the experiments in secular spirit-
uality now being carried through
by many agricultural settlements
in Israel and introduced into
towns by their young pioneer re-
serves as a reaction against their
former rejection of all emotional-
ly tinged holiday observances, are
probably unknown in most coun-
tries of the Western sphere of
culture.

compete with local enterprises,
fill a need, and can help balance
our foreign trade, is also a prob-
lem for the future to decide, as
well as the optimum relations be-
tween the various economic forces
at work in the country.
All these difficulties, which are
incidental to the need for an un-
precedented development of a
j naturally rather arid and shame-
i fully neglected country with an
immigrant population, we are fac-
ing willingly and in the knowl-
edge that our restive neighbors,
as well as other interested parties,
would greatly welcome our fail-
ure. We realize that our inde-
pendence must be constantly
guarded and may have to be de-
fended again and again. But the
fact that we have arived at such
a point already on the second
Rosh Hashona in the history of
the State of Israel is a source of
satisfaction and pride to all of us,
and a spur to unflagging vigilance
and renewed effort.
No small nation can expect
smooth sailing, especially on a
spot of such international inter-
est, but we are working to attain
for all those coming to our coun-
try the maximum security and
well-being open to the Jewish
people in this world. We are
conscious of our duty not to fail
our brethren who have put their
trust in us and helped us by what
lay in their power so that we
might, in due time, be able to give
them the emotional stability bred
by national independence and a
home in an emergency. For the

the less fortunate regions of the

Short of devaluation of currency
or a flood of importsboth of
which may be expected to cause
infinitely more hardship than the
present policythis seems to the
government the only way of re-
pairing at least part of the dam-
age done to Israel's currency by
two successive waves of wartime
inflation.
The gap between Israel's needs
and her ability to pay, as that of
any other country of immigration
throughout history, will naturally
have to be bridged by capital im-
ports and loans for a considerable
time to come, as well as by volun-

of attuning Israel's consumption
to its earnings is of course pain-
ful, and the question of whether
it can be evaded by the importa-
tion of consumer goods in the
form of capital transfer will con-
tinue to be debated for years.
Whether the government will
succeed, by its policy of discour-
aging this trend, in rerouting such
capital imports to vital projects

stand the Scriptures that drove
the student to the pursuit first
the language and later of the
philosophy. It was this heritage
that the middle ages had be-
queathed to posterity. At Harvard
Hebrew was regarded as the key
to the Mother of all languages.
Freshmen at Harvard began with
Hebrew. The first text book was
Wilhelm Schikard's "Horologium
Hebreum." "The Hebrew Sun
Dial." which professed to teach
the elements of the language ir.
twenty-four hours. Harvard stu-
dents spend one day a week for
three years on Hebrew and al-
lied tongues. The principle text
used was the Bible :n its >riginal
form. About twelve copies, with
students' inscription? ..:
from the years 1651 to 1746. are
extant.
From the very days its
founding Yale University in
ed Hebrew as one of the required
subjects To this day the Hebraic
influence can be seen on the *
of the university which carries
the Hebrew words "Urim V-
humim" which was the inscrip-
tion on the priestly breastplate
and means light and truth From
its earliest days the univers
had been immediately and vitally
concerned with Jewish and OrU n-
tal studies. When in 1701 ti n

Harvard. Yale. Columbia. Penn-

United States colleges that have
been teaching Hebrew without in-
terruption since their inception
although like Latin and Greek
the Studv of Hebrew fell off as
the years went bv in American
: After the Revolution-
! arv War education generally was
i shifted from a religious to a pol-
itical basis Yet at the time of
the Revolution there were some
who advocated that the country
abandon English and adopt He-
brew as the vehicle of speech.
The preachers of those days,
saturated in the religion and lit-
erature of the Hebrew prophets
were leaders, teachers, moral
mentors and even the political
philosophers of their flocks. As
President Calvin Coolidge point-
ed out so well in his address at
the laying of the cornerstone of
the Jewish Communitv Center
Building. Washington. D. C. that
"a peoDle raised under such a
leadership, given to much study
and contemplation of the Scrip-
tues, inevitably became familiar
with the great figures of Hebrew
hist ry, with Joshua. Samuel.
M s, Joseph, David. Solomon.
Gideon. Elishamore than they
were with the stories of their
>wn ancestors as recorded in the
pages of profane history."
Biblical influence had helped
not a little in favoring and
strengthening opposition to the
parliamentary claim. The contest
with England hinged upon con-
sti.. ng ( language, the meaning
statutes, the essence of prac-
tice and customs. The two
A I imses. Madison, and Jefferson
ar.d their brethren were at home
in this field. They knew the
B:b!e and were eminently capable
in the exposition of all its justi-
fications for rebellion. They knew
how to thrust, to parry, to word,
to defend, to attack with pen be-
cause they had been at that form
of warfare all their days. They
were the victors over their anta-
gonists across the waters, because
they were the more powerful in
elevated discussion. Several de-
cades before the Declaration of
Independence was made, the ab-
horrence of monarchy expressed
in the Bible was made the great
watchword of the American
people "Proclaim 1 i b e r t v
throughout the land unto all the
inhabitants thereof" Leviticus:
XXV: 10and was inscribed on
the Liberty Bell which hangs in
Independence Hall in Philadel-
phia.
Today we do not know whether
or not history has decreed that
Israel, now restored after 2000
years of exile, should give an-
other Bible to the world. It is
certain that humanity may look
to a new efflorescence of Jewish
culture on the old soil of Israel.

This Year and Next -
era of communal reconstruction
at home and abroad could begin.
That wave of prosperity has
ebbed, but the great promise of
5709 began to emerge into reality,
starting a transition that should
take hold much more firmly in
5710.
We have practically emptied
the hated DP camps of Europe.
Two hundred and seventy-five
thousand Jews have been brought
(Reflections on American Jewish Community Life)
By STANLEY C. MYERS
(President, Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds)
(Copyright, 1943, Jih Telegraphic Agency, tno.)
The year 5709 was a year of qreat achievement. It did not
come easy. It has left enormous problems still unresolved.
Twelve months ago we faced the future on the crest of a
wave of economic prosperity, enthusiasm over victories in
Israel, satisfaction over the greatest campaign totals in history
and optimism that as long last the
arms with other communities in
a vigorous attack on the common
responsibilities which all Ameri-
can Jews share, wherever they
may live.
Thus, the year 5709 was far
different from 5708. The next
year will be very different from
the last. The job in Europe which
has absorbed our attention, our
energy, our resources, is largely
completed. It no longer is the
focus of our interest. We are in
the liquidation stage of our work
there.
Israel has become the over-
shadowing item on our overseas
agenda. It will continue in the
next year to require tremendous
philanthropic aid. But like Eu-
rope, and like our work at home,
that aid is for reconstruction, for
building, for growth, for develop-
ment. We have left behind the
grim business of keeping people
alive. More than ever, the energy
and means we pour into 5710 can
mean lasting achievement.
The next year will also be a
year of transition in our relation
to Israel. Politically, culturally,
organizationally, that adjustment
is under way, clearly in some
aspects, gropingly and uncertain-
ly in others. It will change and
clarify further in the months
ahead.
At home, the pressures of un-
met needs have already forced
down some of the barriers of de-
lay. Those pressures will con-
tinue. Only a beginning has been
made, only the first steps have
been taken in bringing our cbm-
munal facilities and resources up
to the level of new needs, new
populations, new methods and
programs. Many cities raised
some, but only part, of the funds
needed for local improvements.
Stanley C. Myers
to Israel. They are still pouring
in, while others are streaming
through the opened gates of
America. The Jews who remain
on the Continent are moving to-
ward independence and self sup-
port.
At home we have begun to
make up for twenty years of de-
pression, war and postwar neglect.
The reconstruction of Jewish
communal institutions and Jew-
ish communal life is under way,
marked by the building of new
synagogues, community centers,
hospitals, homes for the aged
and, more fundamentally, by an
overhauling of our communal or-
ganization, streamlined through
mergers and revisions, enhanced
by new blood and energetic lead-
ership.
Nationally, as well as locally,
we are beginning to put our
house in order. As communities
"come of age" they are throwing
off the mantle of passive isola-
tion and stepping forward to link
A number initiated basic studies
and planning which must under-
lie any important activity. But
this planning, too, has only just
begun. Great distances can be
travelled in 5710 on the long road
which still lies before us.
The general climate at the be-
ginning of 5710 is one of business
uncertainty, international ten-
sion, widespread insecurity. Eco-
nomically there has been some
deterioration since last year. Poli-
tically there have been some
gains, some stabilization. The
well-being and destiny of Jews
is inextricably bound up with
that national and world climate.
We are in the midst of the stream
of world affairs, and we cannot
permit ourselves to be carried
along aimlessly, without taking
our due part in trying to influ-
ence the course of that stream.
We have already shown during
the past year that what is called
for is courage and vision and
greater energy, not a paralyzing
fear. Our fellow Jews in Europe
and Israel demonstrated it. And
we demonstrated it too with the

Year Of Jewish Developments In England
(Jewish Telegraphic Agency
Correspondent)
By OTTO SCHICK
LONDONThe story of Anglo-
Jewish development in 5709 is
>more than an account of the ex-
1>eriences and activities of one
particular Jewish community. It
is an object-lesson in inter-action
between the destinies of the new-
born State of Israel and Jewish
life in the Diaspora.
That does not mean that such
inter-action has not taken place
elsewhere as well. It has occurred
all over the globe, wherever Jews
still live in any appreciable num-
bers. But it was in England, and
in England alone, that it had be-
come the dominant feature of
Jewish existence. It was in Eng-
land, and in England alone, that
it has worked with almost scient-
ific precision. It was limited
neither to any particular section
of the community nor to any
single aspect of its iife. It has af-
fected in equal measure both
Anglo-Jewry's communal struc-
ture and the relationship with
their fellow-c:tizens. It was both
integral and all-embracing.
At the threshold of 5710 there
is a growing realization among
British Jewish leaders of all
shades of opinion that this inter-
action is bound to continue And
it would be well for Jews in other
countries to realize that the pro-
cess is going to spread. There is
going to be no separation of "Is-
raelism" and Judaism in water-
tight compartments. Everything
that happens in and to Israel
must unavoidably react on the
p sition of Jews in other coun-
tries Everything 'hat affects
Jewish life in the Diaspora must
have its repercussions on the
prestige of the Jewish State.
The reasons why the phen-
omenon became manifest first
and foremost in England are ob-
vious The people of the '. rmei
Mandatory Power naturally feel

and the Middle East the:- than
rule in Palestine in May. 1948.
were still felt in England as the
Jewish year 5709 was ushered
in. and a new tempest threatened
to break loose over the assassina-
tion of Count Bernadotte in Jeru-
salem. True. British troops had
long left the Holy Land, and Arab
attacks had been halted by Is-
rael's voung army. No longer
were there pogrom-like out-
breaks in the provincial centers
of England because of the hang-
ing of British sergeants. But the
anti-Jewish poison still spread
under the protecting wings of
Bevinism. "The Times" published
a venomous letter threatening
dire consequences for Jews
everywhere if world Jewry were
not to "get together to root out
the murderers." In the House of
Lords, the Archbishop of York
declared that the Jews in Pales-
tine "cannot be regarded as a
civilized nation." On Yom Kippur
morning. worshipers found
Fascist slogans and Mosleyite
flashes daubed on front doors and
notice boards at a number of
London synagogues.
However, as Israel's position
grew stronger, both militarily and
diplomatically, public opinion
underwent a marked change. The
first cracks in the united anti-
Israeli front signalled a definite
recess in anti-Jewish sentiment
in general. Pressure for at least
de facto recognition of Israel
came from both the Conservative
and Liberal parties as well as
from inside the government itself
Deprived of their most potent
weaponthe anti-Israel drive
England's professional Jew bait-
ers went out in search of new-
means of attack and new allies
For a time it seemed as if an
anti-Shechita campaign might
prove an effective substitute.
Many well-meaning humani-
tarians were led astray by this
propaganda. Horrifying details of
the alleged deliberate cruelty of
Jewish ritual slaughter were giv-
en in the House of Lords and at
innumerable public meetings up
and down the country. Legisla-
a purelv religious and sentimental :;c" against Shechita seemed in-
attachment The Jews :f Britain

toric process The vibrations of

. Future Of Jewish Medical Graduates -
By DR. A. J. RONGY
This is the season of the year
when attention is again directed
to the academic world as the in-
stitutions of higher education of
America re-open to accept thous-
ands of new students and mem-
bers of the liberal professions.
These students, consciously or un-
consciously, feel that in a large
measure they are destined to be-
come the leaders of our social
riCshall not concern myself at
this time with the fate of the
Jewish graduates of the various
liberal arts, technical and scient-
ific schools and what role they
will play in American life. I
shall limit myself to the problems
of the approximately 650 Jewish
voung men and women who this
vear were graduated from the
medical schools and mirror in my
mind what their professional
status is likely to be twenty-five
years hence. What opportunities
will they have to reach a position
of influence in their profession?
What chances will they have for
a complete expression of their
medical talent?
I do not wish to appear pessi-
mistic but it may safely be pre-
dictedbased upon past experi-
encethat with but a few rare
exceptions none will become a
medical director of any of our
large national industrial corpora-
tions, none will head the medical
department of one of our great
life insurance companies, and that
but few will attain important po-
sitions on the medical faculties.
It is sad to contemplate but
nevertheless it is true that the
largest majority of the Jewish
medical graduates will be pre-
vented by artificially created
social and economic forces from
giving full expression to their
medical talents and will perforce
be relegated to secondary posi-
tions in the medical profession.
I venture to predict that the Jew-
ish student, who was awarded the
much coveted alumni prize at Co-
lumbia College this year, given
to "the most faithful and deserv-
ing student," and who has de-
cided to embark upon a medical
career, will be handicapped in his
medical progress by the same
artificial social and economic
forces and will be prevented from
the full development of his med-
ical talents.
It seems to me that it is high
time that thoughtful men and
women, leaders in industry and
finance, should begin to concern
themselves with and attempt to
eradicate some of the weaknesses
and the canker sore in our demo-
cracy. Patriotic Americans should
begin to realize that the survival

of our way of life and the pre-
servation of our institutions will
depend upon how auickly we can
remove from our body politic
these social anomalies which tend
to undermine the very corner-
stone of our civilization and, if
allowed to continue, may event-
ually destroy it.
It is not generally known what
a complete transformation has
taken place more recently in the
post-graduate training of physi-
cians, especially in the training
of specialists in the various
branches of medicine. In order to
become a specialist, the young
graduate, after serving a regular
internship in an approved hos-
pital, must go through a rigorous
training anywhere from three
to five years, depending upon the
branch he wishes to qualify for,
then pass a written and an oral
examination, given by the special-
ty board, in order to be certified.
This method of training spe-
cialists created a crisis among
graduates of some racial and eth-
nic groups, because most of the
hospitals throughout the country
have had no time to reorganize
their hospital services on a basis
which enable them to establish
approved residencies for special
training. The demand for resi-
dencies even now is greater than
the supply.
The medical committee of the
Conference on Jewish Relations
very soon became aware of the
critical situation facing the Jew-
ish graduate. After a thorough
survey of the Jewish hospitals
throughout the country, it reached
the conclusion that if the hospi-
tals do not establish approved
residencies in the various
branches of medicine and sur-
gery, a large majority of Jewish
physicians will be relegated to the
lower rungs of medical practice
and but a small percent will have
an opportunity to obtain proper
training to be qualified for cer-
tification.
The Council on Medical Educa-
tion of the American Medical As-
sociation lists approved resi-
dencies in eighteen specialities
and seven sub-specialties. In at
least ten of the specialties a min-
imum of three years training is
required in the basic sciences and
in the clinical branch of medicine
before the applicant is allowed to
apply for certification in the par-
ticular specialty. Of course, each
candidate for a residency must
serve at least one year on the
interne staff of an approved hos-
pital. It is generally estimated
that about one-third of the grad-
uates each year seek residency
appointments, which will qualify
them for certification.
In 1948 there were 5,543 medi-
cal graduates in the United States.
Accordingly, about 1,850 will ap-
ply for special training and cer-
tification as specialists. The per-
centage of Jewish graduates, who
desire to become specialists, is
probably greater than in the non-
Jewish groups, because Jewish
doctors, as a rule, settle in large
cities, not so much of choice but
because it is difficult for them to

There have been many better sports years than the past

What Is Ailing American Jewry?
By PHILIP RUBIN
You enter a synagogue on Yom Kippur eve, the holiest
night in the Jewish calendar. You are ready to listen to the age-
old prayers and gather some inspiration that will last for a
while. You are anxious to hear the rabbi's sermon. But there
is a buzz-buzz all around youfolks are whispering to each
other, enjoying a private tete-a-
tete, intent upon conversing with
Joe and Mary instead of com-
muning with God. You are in-
tensely irritated, your inspira-
tion has fled.
Or you come to a big Zionist
gathering. A noted orator is re-
viewing the great happenings in
the new-born state of Israel dur-
ing the past year. At first every-
body listens in silence. But after
ten minutes or so. the man and
the lady behind you, the two
young girls in front of you and
the people who sit at both sides
of you seem to have lost interest
and try to make up for it by
indulging in the latest gossip
about a mutual friend.
Jews have a reputation for
being musical people. But if you
go nowadays to a concert of fine
Jewish music, rendered by a fine
singers, but the content of what
they have to offer us really can-
not hold our interest during an
entire hour and a half, or even
for three-quarters of an hour."
So our poorly rich, unmusical
American Jews for once get
fooled in a business transaction
they pay good money for a con-
cert ticket but don't receive any-
where near their money's worth
for it.
Now let us enter a Christian
church on some ordinary Sundav
morning. Let's not be afraid that
attendance once in a while at
Christian divine services or
prayer meetings, as some sects
call them and as I prefer to call
themwill make worse Jews of
us, will loosen our
things Jewish. On the contrary.
f our Jewishness is something
Jewish artist, you wonder how more than mere automatic habit
in the world we ever got that
reputation. Only about half of
the audience listens and keeps
quiet during the whole recital.
The rest seem to regard the music
as only a charming accompani-
ment to their private talk-fests.
The attitude of the latter seems
to be: "Well, Sidor Belarsky and
Bracha Zfira are really great
and nostalgic memory, if it is
faith and conviction as well as
the mere sense of belonging to a
certain group, then attendance at
Notice the absolute quiet that
prevails in a Christian church,
the perfect attention that is given
to the prayers, the hymns, the
sermon. Contrast it with the con-
tinual buzz of whispered con-
versation that goes on not only
in American Orthodox syna-
gogues, but even in many Con-
servative and Reform Temples
which are supposed to emphasize
decorum in the House of God.
while American Christians, de-
spite all the selfish materialism
and cynicism of American life,
still show some respect for the
faith of their fathers, as one can
see by their behavior in church,
more and more American Jews
are beginning to regard their
synagogues and templesto say
; nothing of their secular institu-
tionsas mere social gathering
places where prayers, sermons,
lectures, fine music are merely
excuses for bringing Jews to-
gether in one place, there to in-
dulge in remarks about a neigh-
ties with b 1 what not.
Our American Jewish women,
I have noticed, are the greatest
offenders in this respect, and this
makes the situation all the more
disquieting. In Europe for several
centuries past women have had
to inspire us with the will to
strengthen Judaism by teaching
us a great lesson. That lesson is:
Respect, if not reverence, for the
things people say they believe in.

Christian prayer meetings ought; ] lePuation of being more re-
ligious, because more emotional
and less rationalistic, than men
who doesn't remember the deep
piety that our Jewish women im-
migrants to the United States
brought over from the Old Cen-
tury a generation and more ago?
But today a great many of our
American Jewish women, pam-
pered by their middle-class hus-
bands, having little work to do in
their homes or anywhere else,
display even less respect for the
things of the spiritreligion,
poetry, musicthan do their hus-
bands, who are at least spiritual-
ly disciplined by a business and
its attendant work and* worries.
All too many of our middle-class
Jewish women seem to imagine
that life can really be converted
into one vast delightful gin rum-
my party and that the pains of
life, such as child-birth, death,
disease and suffering generally,
which religion and philosophy
and art seek to assuage and part-
ly overcome, are only short, un-
pleasant interludes which one can
afford to ignore.
And so we have reached the
stage here in the United States of
an epidemic of talkative Jewish
women at serious Jewish gather-
ings, with no feeling, with no in-
terest whatsoever for what is
being said or sung or played on
the pulpit, platform stage or con-
cert hall. Is this a symptom of
the decline of the Jewish spirit
here? If so. what can be done to
halt that decline, to restore at
least some modicum of respect
for Jewish spiritual values?

PAGE THIRTY-NINE
The Road to Our Future ..
By SAMUEL BELKIN
(President, Yeshiva University)
The future development of the State of Israel is of gre^t
significance to all mankind. First, because of the natural devo-
tion of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel which is saturates"
with sacred memories and Messianic hopes. Second, ii will
serve as a haven of refuge for our persecuted brethren in
Europe, who are still homeless
are
and displaced throughout the
European continent. But, above
all, the State of Israel will pro-
vide the opportunity for the de-
velopment of the spiritual and
intellectual individuality of the
Jewish people; it will serve as a
symbol of strength to our people
in the entire world; it will in-
spire us with hope and self re-
spect: it will lay to rest the false
doctrine of assimilation. We firm-
]v believe that a State of Israel
will be a blessing of the Torah
and our sacred literature and
Law. which is even today the
fountainhead of whatever is
moral in our civilization. It will
be a blessing to the Jewish com-
munity as a whole because the
spirituality of Judaism will gain
there its natural growth. Judaism
will make great progress in two
great centers. One, in the State
of Israel and the second in our
blessed United States of America,
which possesses today the most
populous Jewish community.
On the American scene, we owe
it to ourselves to concentrate our
efforts in developing educational
opportunities for our youth. To
suit our present-day needs this
education must be a three-fold
education. First of all in the na-
tural sciences which are primari-
ly concerned with the world in
which we have been placed, and
in the hidden secrets of the uni-
verse which are constantly being
discovered by the human intel-
lect. Second, the social sciences
and humanities which seek to
convey to us a better understand-
ing of our complex society, of
which we are individual members
and an appreciation of the laws
which bind society together.
Third, in religion which en-
deavors to divine the higher pur-
pose and spiritual values of our
own lives and daily experiences.
The endless search after God's
knowledge which helps us to
orientate ourselves in the un-
charted land of the spirit; the
continuous desire to become ac-
quainted with the discoveries of
the human intellect, and the
search for a deeper understanding
of the people around us, create
within us a harmonious perfec-
tion which may be characterized
as the integration of knowledge.
The future of the world is at
stake in the race between two
approaches to the philosophy of
education. Should the primary
aim of education be the achieve-
ment of mechanical excellency
and the development of the hu-
man intellect so that man should
secure greater material success?
Or should the main goal of ed-
ucation be the development in
man the sense of responsibility
for the preservation of our moral
and spiritual heritage, and thus
when our scientific giants release
the great forces of the atomic
energy it may be directed to build
a new and better world. It is the
unity of the human mind and the
godly spirit in man that can
serve as a real defense against
future world catastrophies. As in-
telligent men we must look upon
ourselves as the moral and spirit-
ual champions of our civilization,
and admit our responsibility for
the preservation of the most vital
experiences whose permanent
values were tested by history.
At Yeshiva University our stu-
dents are taught that the primary
aim of education is not to pro-
vide you with skills aloneskills
in the sciences and humanities so
that you may be able to acquire
material success, economic se-
curity, and social standing. Nor
are they taught that education is
a mere form'of mental gymnast-
ics. We guide them in the ancient
philosophy of Judaism which af-
firms the importance of technical
and intellectual achievements,
but which emphasizes that the
reward of learning is to be found
not in the outwardness of one's
professional occupation but in the
intangible and moral values which
give a true sense of meaningful-
ness to our existence; in our moral
obligation towards our fellow-
men and in our willingness to
share the responsibility for the
making of a better world. To
paraphrase the words of a poet
it is better to strive for great
ideals and be lost in the Great-
ness of God and thus survive, than
to devote one's life to nothingness

Members of Congress who were
"shocked and sickened" over the
Nazi death camps in 1945. seemed
to have completely recovered
their equilibrium and health in
1949. Perhaps we cannot visualize
how four years could erase from
the minds of many legislators the
traumatic memories of visits to
Buchenwald and Belsen and Da-
chau. But members of Congress
who shed tears over the displaced

Jews seemed to have forgotten

the Displaced Persons Act of
1948. terming it "discriminatory"
against Jews. The obvious bar-
riers to Jews in the lawwhich
favors farmers and Baltic peoples
were denounced by Earl G.
Harrison, former U.S. Commis-
sioner of Immigration and Natur-
alization. Harrison, who should
be an authority on DP laws, urged
immediate elimination of anti-
Semitic restrictions. He said, "to
do less than this would seem to
indicate that one piece of Hitler's
iniquitous philosophy of racism
and discrimination has been
adopted here."
A bill to amend the DP law
was introduced in the House by
Chairman Emanuel Celler of the
House Judiciary Committee. It
was eventually passed by the
House after the Immigration Sub-
committee, led bv its chairman,
Rep. Francis E. Walter, of Penn-
sylvania, doctored the measure
in such a way as to make it al-
most unpalatable to the Jewish
people and to the Jewish Con-
gressman who was its author.
Gen. Wladyslaw Anders' Polish
army, which has many anti-
Semites in its ranks (some volun-
teered to fight against Israel out
of sheer hatred for the Jews)
would be imported to the U.S.
under a special provision written
into the House-approved bill.
Gen. Anders and his staff have
organized aid and active guidance
to Polish pogromists. according
to Dr. Emil Sommerstein. former
chairman of the Jewish Central
Committee of Poland.
"Anyone who advocated or as-
sisted in persecutions of others
for race, religion, or national
origin." would be barred from
the U.S.. according to the bill. But
the Walter subcommittee added
specifications which would admit
not only Gen. Anders' 18.000 Jew-
baiters, but fifty percent of the
large German quota would be
made available to "Ethnic Ger-
mans." These are Germans who
were sent to Danzig and the
Czech Sudetenland and elsewhere
in Eastern Europe by Hitler.
When World War II opened they
were the fifth columnists. Under
the terms of the Potsdam De-
claration they were kicked out
of the countries they betrayed
and shipped back to Germany.

In some respects the law was
liberalized and the quota was
lifted from 205.000 to 339,000 Thf
anti-Jewish requirement that I
high percentage of DPs be farm
ers was done away with But I
provision was added, placing
farmers at the top of a list of Drp8
ferred DP trades. Thus, a Sudeten
German farmer would get to the
U.S. quicker than a Jewish tailor
who somehow survived the death
camps. The victims of fascism re-
ceived less consideration in the
House bill than the fascists them-
selves.
Jewish organizations were dis-
pleased but termed the bill the
best they could expect to get
through. But little did anyone on
Capitol Hill suspect that Sen. Pat
McCarran of Nevada would soon
single-handedly block all efforts
to pass the measure in the Sen-
ate.
McCarran said that allegations
that the old law discriminated
against Jews was a "despicable
charge, wholly at variance with
the facts." Shocking attacks on
Jewish displaced persons bv Rep.
Ed Gossett, of Texas, in theHouse
might have served as a warning
to what was to happen in the
Senate. McCarran was to show,
however, that he had the power!
while Gossett only had the mouth.
Under a peculiar arrangement,
McCarran not only heads the Sen-
ate Judiciary Committee but also
the Senate Immigration Subcom-
mittee. It is the function of the
subcommittee to consider and ar-
rive at an immigration bill and
then report it to the Judiciary
Committee which in turn puts it
on the floor of the Senate. Mc-
Carran refused to even begin
hearings in the subcommittee.
Finally he did hold a few meet-
ings, calling one Otto Durholtz
as a witness to describe the dis-
placed persons situation in Eu-
rope. Durholtz is a man well
known by former Bund members
in the Yorkville section of New
York City and is active in organ-
izations trying to aid the real'"
victims of the war, the "poor Ger-
mans."
A new anti-Jewish weapon
emerged in the 81st Congress, It
was the charge that the patriot-
ism of American Jews is ques-
tionable because of their loyally
and devotion to a foreign sov-
ereign state. Israel. This distortion
of U.S. Zionism received nourish-
ment from the propaganda of the
Lessing Rosenwald's American
Council For Judaism which flood-
ed Washington during the yeai
On the other hand. Senators and
Representatives previously con-
sidered indifferent or hostile to
the Jews, expressed a grudging
sort of admiration for the Jewish
military triumph against over-
whelming odds. An honest ap-
praisal might show that the es-
tablishment of Israel has done
American Jews more good than
harm on Capitol Hill.
A delegation from New York,
representing the American Jew-
ish Congress, called on Sen. Tom
Connally. of Texas, to protest the
failure of the denazification pro-

eram Connolly, chairman of the
Foreign Relations Committee,
looked up from his desk. "We
eave you Israel." he said curtly,
KJw What do you want?" .
A auiet but highly efficient job
f combatting anti-Semitism was
SLc by the Washington office
of the B'nai BVith Anti-Defama-
bn League, capably directed by
Herman Edelsberg The ADL B
mission in Washington is to inter-
pret the capital scene to the Jew-
ish communities of the nation
and to tell legislators about the
ideas of American Jews. Rep.
j0hn Rankin. of Mississippi,
threatened to introduce a resolu-
tion in the House to investigate
"that subversive organization,
the Anti-Defamation League. This
laughable threat may be consid-
ered an outstanding compliment
to the ADL's effectiveness and
continuous vigilance.
The Federal Communications
Commission cracked down on G.
A Richards, owner of important
radio stations, who was accused
of ordering anti-Semitism in-
jected in news broadcasts of his
Los Angeles station, KMPC.
Members of his newsroom staff
filed affidavits with the FCC
incriminating him. He also owns
stations WJR in Detroit and
WGAR. Cleveland.
Will Maslow, general counsel
of the American Jewish Congress,
hailed action of the FCC in the
case as being of tremendous sig-
nificance in preserving the U.S.
from "the poison of hatred de-
liberately spread by those who
abuse the privilege of being li-
censed to utilize mass media of
communication like radio."
Jewish organizations have
J long sought a national fair em-
ployment practices law to guar-
antee equal job rights to Jewish
workers. This year a Negro leg-
islator, Rep. Adam C. Powell, Jr.,
of New York, led the fight in
| Congress, but to little avail. He
headed a committee which
brought out an anti-discrimina-
tion bill and got a "firm commit-
ment" from the Democratic lead-
ership that the measure would be
brought to the floor in January,
1950.
The Powell bill would make re-
ligious or racial discrimination
unlawful for firms engaging in
interstate commerce. It would ful-
fill one of the major planks in
President Truman's civil rights
program.
It was at House hearings on
the Powell bill that Rep. Clare
I Hoffman of Michigan, added his
memorable testimony. He said,
"There's no discrimination against
Jews in this country. They are
on top. Why. they have the world
by the tail'"
, A group libel bill, the brain-
child of Rep. Arthur G. Klein, of
| New York, was talked about in
Ihe House, but got nowhere. The
measure would prevent the mail-
ing of defamatory literature
libelling a racial or religious
group.
President Truman reiterated
his stand on civil rights when a
delegation of B'nai B'rith ADL
leaders called at the White House
to present him with the first copy
of "How Secure These Rights?"
ADL's annual report on anti-
Semitism in the U.S. The Presi-
dent told the committee, headed
by Meier Steinbrink, national
ADL chairman, that he intended
to stand by his fight against dis-
crimination and bigotry.
The Civil Service Commission
strengthened its regulations
against discrimination; the Jew-
ish War Veterans endorsed the
Atlantic Pact; the conviction of
an anti-Semitic Catholic priest,
Father Terminiello, was reversed
by the Supreme Courtso went
the year 5709. A gain here and a
loss there in the continuing strug-
gle to insure for American Jews
the full benefits of the true Amer-
icanism of the Constitution and
the Bill of Rights.
As the year approached a close
it became increasingly evident
that the heritage of religious free-
dom must be guarded steadfastly
that Washington reflected the
temper of the nation and that
there were dark days ahead. But
there was also hope. The age of
the brotherhood of man has not
yet dawned in the nation's capital
but it may not be too far below
the horizon.

hardest work ever put into our
communities, with campaign re-
sults second only to the record-
breaking previous year, and with
unprecedented progress.
We demonstrated it by the
flood of communal service and
action at every levelin re-ex-
amining and strengthening our
structure and machinery, increas-
ing Jewish education programs
and facilities, extending our hos-
pitals, making greater provision
for the growing numbers of aged,
launching new programs for the
chronically ill, revising outmoded
family welfare and child care
practices, re-adapting and spread-
ing Jewish center activities.
This generation has undertaken
the historic task of rebuilding Is-
rael and at the same time recon-
structing an American Jewish life
to reflect the needs, the character,
the aspirations of American Jewry
as of today, not merely to live
on the inadequate and no longer
fitting pattern of the past. These
tasks will go forward, impelled
by the inescapable events of so-
ciety and history.
The pressures for the jobs to be
tackled by our communities,
locally, regionally, and nationally
will be tremendous on all fronts.
It will call for wisdom and states-
manship that sees beyond narrow
partisanship to the greater good
for all, that looks from the moun-
tain top not at a series of indi-
vidual peaks and rivers and val-
leys, but at the total landscape as
one panorama, each part depend-
ent upon the others, only together
making up the beauty of the land-
scape.
The year 5710 will be a year of
great need and great opportunity.
We have a long way to go. But
we are better mobilized, better
organized, better equipped by
understanding and experience
than ever before to make the
most of that opportunity.

Professional Careers For Jewish Women
(Continued from Page 38)
suffering from extreme shortage
are physical and occupational
therapy. Both professions are
practically monopolized by wom-
en. The former involves the treat-
ment of physical and nervous dis-
orders by non-medical means,
such as the use of massage, exer-
cise, physical, chemical and other
properties of heat, light, water
and occasionally electricity.
The occupational theraDist co-
operates with the physician in
organizing work projects for pati-
ents, supervising workers who
teach patients activities as rug
making, sewing, basketry and
other vocational activities. They
hasten the patient's recovery by
keeping him usefully occupied.
Among the traits you should
possess for either profession are
good health, sound emotional bal-
ance, a liking for people and de-
sire to serve them, patience, tact;
and sense of humor. Training is
from four to five years subse-
quent to high school.
There are many jobs in govern-
ment service, various hospitals
and schools for the handicapped.
Salaries range from $2,000 to 6.-
000 for supervisory positions.
A small but increasingly large
number of women are finding in-
teresting careers in optometry.
Barriers existing in other fields
against women are refreshingly
absent. Many women conduct
their own practice, while others
work as assistants to opthamo-
. <:> and optometrists. Women
have shown themselves especially
well suited for working with chil-
dren. Others are employed by
clinics and as research workeis
for optical manufacturers. Earn-
ings range from $3,000 to $12,000
a vear and more.
Another little known field wel-
coming competent women is os-
teopathy. Approximately a fourth
of all osteopaths are women. Os-
teopathy is the school of medicine
devoted to the treatment of dis-
eases and injuries, chiefly through
manipulation. It does, however.
use other approved methods of
diagnosis and treatment. The os-
teopathic physician not only en-
gages in manipulative treatment
but also prescribes diet, exercise,
rest and recreation.
The total training after high
school is about six years. It is a
voung. uncrowded and growing
profession where incomes com-
pare favorably with that of other
physicians. .....
Finallv. although this doesn
exhaust the list of professional
| fields, there is librarianship. This
important has been slow in gain-
ing the recognition it deserves.
Standards have risen so that a
minimum of a college degree is
essential for the better paying
job. There are also several grad-
uate schools in the country. Th:s
profession also suffers from a
shortage of professionally trained
workers.
Those Jewish women who are
interested in. and qualified for
anv of the above fields will find
them challenging, often remuner-
ative and emotionally satisfying
vocations.
Future Of Jewish Medical Graduates

acquire a practice in small or
rural communities.
Contrary to the general im-
pression. Christians are extreme-
ly clannish in their choice of
physicians. Even in the large
c:-.:<>. with but few exceptions.
Jewish specialists of high rank
seldom acquire a large percent-
age of gentile patients, while gen-
tile physicians of equal rank very
often have a large Jewish follow-
ing. As a matter of fact, in some
of the metropolitan areas many
of the prominent gentile consult-
ants have a large Jewish c'.:entele.
while the reverse is hardly ever
true, no matter what prominence
the Jewish specialists may attain.
Of the 650 Jewish graduates
in medicine, about 250 will seek
to qualify themselves as special-
ists each year. Obviously, the im-
portant Jewish hospitals through-
out the country are unable to
supply the demand for resi-
dencies in all the special branches
of medicine. However, it must be
stated that about eighteen of the
leading Jewish hospitals in the
country have done an excellent
job in reorganizing their medical
and surgical services and estab-
lishing approved residencies in
many branches of medicine.
Still, there is a lack of ap-
proved residencies in many Jew-
ish hospitals, particularly in the
highly specialized departments.
such ..> opthalmology. thoracic
surgery, neurological surgery,
many others. The Jewish
graduates must therefore seek
residencies in non-Jewish hos-
pitals and. with the exception of
municipal hospitals, they find it
difficult to obtain residencies ir.
non-Jewish voluntary hospitals.
I: seems to me that the re-
sp risible Jewish leaders, in cities
where there are Jewish hospitals,
mast take steps to re-organize
the hospital services with a view
to establishing as many resi-
dencies as may be approved by
the Council on Education of the
American Medical Association.
This, in some hospitals, may en-
tail a change in staff appoint-
ments or heads of departments. It
may require full time directors
to serve as teachers in some of
the important branches of med>

cine. I am convinced that, unless
this is done very soon, the Jewisii
medical group throughout the
country will be greatly handi-
capped in their progress and ad-
vancement. This would he a great
loss, not only to the Jewish com-
munity but to the public at large.
In closing. I want to state that
the Jewish community in New
York has a splendid opportunity
to re-organize its medical and
surgical facilities, especially in
the Bronx area, which would
greatly improve the professional
- rvice rendered to the commun-
ity and at the same time create
greater facilities for medical ed-
ucation. The important medical
institutions in that area belong
to '"Federation." There is no rea-
son why a central committee, lay
and medical, representing thi se
institutions, should not be organ-
ized to improve the training and
education of physicians. To my
mind, this is one of the most im-
portant problems that the re-
sponsible leaders of Federation
and the trustees of the institu-
tions will have to deal with .n
the near future.

ified in the public eye with the
extreme Left. While playing an
important part in outdoor meet-
ingsa characteristic feature of
English political lifethey did
not allow themselves to be drawn
into those frequent small clashes
that occurred in the East End be-
tween Communists and Fascists,
followed by court proceedings
that gave undue publicity to
Fascist propaganda. But they
were on the spot whenever the
danger became real. A large Mos-
leyite procession, staged with
Nazi military pomp in Brighton,
a popular seaside resort, was
broken up by Jewish war vet-
erans, and soon their own out-
door meetings began to attract
larger crowds than Mosley's
British Union could ever muster.
A most impressive affair was
the Jewish ex-servicemen's an-
nual remembrance parade on No-
vember 14, in which over 15,000
veterans took part. The parade
and the reunion meeting in Al-
bert Hall that followed in the
evening did much to enhance
Jewish prestige throughout the
country.
Meanwhile, increased pressure
was put on the government to
effect the long overdue recogni-
tion of Israel and thus end an
unhappy tension. Early in De-
cember, ex-Foreign Secretary
Anthony Eden, father of the Arab
League, and Winston Churchill
himself pressed the demand dur-
ing the Foreign Affairs in Com-
mons. They were joined by Lib-
eral chief Clement Davies and
many Socialist back-benchers.

United States policy also in this
important aspect was the tenor
of the debate.
At the same time, the campaign
for the release of the Cyprus
refugees, held unlawfully on the
island after the termination of the
Mandate, was stepped up.
A critical stage in the develop-
ment of Anglo-Israeli relations
and their impact on Jewish life
in England was reached in Janu-
ary when the Israeli army ad-
vanced to the Egyptian border,
Israeli fighters shot down five
British planes, and Britain landed
troops in Aqaba. Six months ago
such developments would have
led to a resurgence of violent
anti-Semitism in England. By
now, however, respect for Jewish
military prowess and determina-
tion had grown to the point where
the opposite effect was achieved.
Though Bevin remained as
stubborn as ever, opposition with-
in the Cabinet forced on him the
release of the Cyprus refugees.
The decision was announced after
a Cabinet meeting on January 17.
A week later, de facto recogni-
tion of Israel was granted by
France and Italy. It was clear
that this could not have happened
without Whitehall's approval.
Recognition by Britain, an-
nounced at the end of the same
week, surprised no one. It was
received from Mr. Bevin's hands
by Joseph Linton, Israel's Acting
Representative, and on the follow-
ing morning jubilant crowds
greeted in Manchester Square
the hoisting of the Israeli flag and
the beginning of a new era in
Anglo-Israeli relations.
The arrival in April of a repre-
sentative of full diplomatic stand-
ing, Oxford-educated Dr. Mor-
decai Eliash, followed next month
by the raising of his status to
that of Minister to the Court of
St. James, continued the develop-
ment towards normalcy in the
relations between Britain and Is-
rael. The practical aspects of the
problem were tackled by the
opening shortly afterwards of fi-
nancial talks between the two
nations in London, fololwed by
conversations on a higher level
in Tel Aviv.
On the home front, the new
turn heralded the doom of Mos-
ley's propaganda. At one of his
last large public meetings, held
in the Town Hall of the fashion-
able "Royal borough" of Kens-
ington two days after Britain had
recognized Israel, Sir Oswald
ranted in vain against the new
policy which, he claimed, instead
of declaring war against Israel,
had made Britons "lick the dust
beneath the feet of Jewry."
In the municipal elections at
the end of February the Mosley-
ites suffered a crushing defeat,
and their provocative march
through the Jewish districts of
North London was turned v into
something much nearer to run-
ning the gauntlet than a display
of militant strength. The Home
Secretary, who had remained
adamant to please to forbid the
Mosley march, now banned street
processions for three months. The
Mosley thugs could seek revenge
only in brutal and cowardly at-
tacks on isolated Jewish youngs-
ters, many of whom were brought
to hospital with serious injuries.
While anti-Semitism had been
driven off the street by the close
of the Jewish year, much dissat-
isfaction was felt among Anglo-
Jewry at the failure of persistent
efforts to persuade the govern-
ment of the necessity to introduce
legislation making group libel and
incitement to group hatred a pun-
ishable offense. There was a great
deal of speculation as to the real
reasons for this refusal to distin-
guish between legitimate protec-
tion of free speech and the tolera-
tion of license and the threat of
violence.
As far as organized communal
life is concerned, the emergence
and consolidation of the Israeli
State led to a far-reaching re-
orientation. Traditional party dis-
tinctions seemed to have become
obsolete. "Whatever may have
been our attitude to the idea of
a Jewish State in the past," said
Lord Justice Cohen, leading Brit-
ish non-Zionist, at a banquet in
honor of the Israeli Minister,
"there is today hardly a Jew who
does not rejoice that His Majesty's
government has accorded recogn-
tion to the state and who doubts
that it will make a valuable con-
tribution to the spiritual life of
the world."
However, that reorientation has
not yet overcome in practice cer-
tain inveterate divergences and
jealousies. There is still deep re-
sentment in some quarters over
the break-up of the former Joint
Foreign Committee of the Board
of Deputies and the Anglo-Jew-
ish Association by what is being
denounced as the "Zionist caucus"
within the Board of Deputies.
Moreover, the board has been
weakened merely temporarily,
it is generally hopedby the se-
cession of Liberal, Progressive
and Sephardic congregations. Ef-
forts are afoot to set up a rival
body around the Anglo-Jewish
Association, which recently cele-
brated its 75th anniversary.
On the other hand, strenuous
efforts are being made by the
World Jewish Congress to bring
about Anglo-Jewry's official af-
filiation to that body. Few doubt
that any precipitate action in this
direction, far from reaching its
objective of fostering Jewish
unity, would, at the present junc-
ture, promote rather than pre-
vent communal disintegration.

After observing the situation
over a good many years, I am
regretfully compelled to answei
the first question in the affirma-
tive. These private conversations
at Jewish gatherings, this refusal
to pav respectful attention to the
things that people still claim to
respect is a symptom of the de-
cline of the Jewish spirit here in
the United States which, if some-
thing isn't done to halt it. will
eventually so atrophy Jewish life
here that'only a skeleton will re-
main of what was formerly a liv-
ing body with flesh and blood anc.
soul.
But it is only one symptom.
Another is a thing like the ad-
vertisement of a Reform congre-
gation in a small city in Michigan
for an "aggressive" rabbias if
it were desirable that a rabbi in
America should have the same
qualities as a cosmetics salesman.
Another is the complaint of a
rabbi in Texas that at marriage
and funeral servicesthe most
serious, the most solemn, moments
in lifepeople are always telling
him to "made the service short,
if not "snappy." Those are atti-

tudes which are just not taken
'by American Christian congre-
gations who. no matter how hypo-
critical many of their members
mav be about their faith, have
.not surrendered entirely the
principles and ideals of the Chris-
tian religion to the "principles
and "ideals" of the religion of
private-profit Business. Hypo-
! crisv. once said the wise French-
man Le Rouchefoucauld, is the
homage that vice pays to virtue.
'The honest cynicism that one
hears all too often nowadays from
the lips of many American Jews
'about religion and cultureas if
the only things worth striving tor
were money and material pleas-
ures&are a worse stage in the
degeneration of the human spirit
than is hypocrisy, since the hypo-
crite at least knows that he is
doing wrong while the honest
cynic is unaware of it. There is
such a thing as being too Clevel-
and it doesn't make friends for
' us Jews among really sincere
Christians who would like to be
'our friends.
What can be done to halt this
shriveling up of Jewish spiritual
values in American Jewry, to re-
verse the process, to reanimate
American Jewry with a new soul,
with the feeling that there is
more to human life than eco-
nomic well-being, material pleas-
uresand even contributing
monev to charitable institutions?
Merely asking people to behave
themselves, to sit quietly througn
Jewish gatherings and give re-
spectful attention to what is being
said from the platform, even if
people will pledge themselves to
do it. will obviously not remed>
the situation if people haven't
their hearts and souls in Judaism
and Jewish culture. By applying
superficial plasters to a disease
that goes deep we shall only bi
fooling ourselves, we shall not at-
tack the disease itself.
I have for a long time been
maintaining that the first thing
that must be done in this truly
dangerous situation which has
arisen in American Jewry, drunk
with material prosperity which
threatens to leave it spiritually
destitute, is to get together our
American Jewish intelligentsu,
all over the country to discuss
over many months the two vital-
lv important problems: What do
we believe, as of the moment,
and what can we believe as a
result of an exchange among our-
selves of facts, opinions, and.
not least, feelings? Let us meet,

I own feelings, learn definitely
where we stand and learn to re-

the truth and importance of which
we are now fully convinced.
Is there enough spiritual stam-
ina left in American Jewry for
such gatherings of our intelligent-
sia, of our intellectual and spirit-

time will tell. But if there is, the
matter is too urgent to be delayed

A Year In Jewish
ish" nag Palestinian came through
(Continued from Page 36)
During the past year Mike Jacobs
was retired as the world's pre-
mier promoter and with his de-
parture went all hope of an im-
mediate renaissance of the box-
installed as Madison Square Gar-
ing game. Harry Markson was
den's boxing brain. Bill Wein-
berg is no further advanced
among the heavyweights than he
was when last we wrote this an-
nual review. The most lucrative
division holds little attraction for
our lads. Jake Mintz holds a claim
in the heavyweight field as man-
ager of Ezzard Charles, N.B.A.
heavyweight champion. The wily
Pittsburgher wangled a title shot
for his lad after Joe Louis retired
and saw the colored youngster
installed as Louis' successor.
Herbie Kronowitz figures to be
the boy in the middleweight class
with a' few uninspiring wins dur-
ing the past campaign.All other
classes were utterly devoid of big
time fighting calibre. Fight man-
agers continue to scour gymna-
siums in search of Jewish boxers
but to no avail. One of the fight
gentry, Irwin Goldie, an ex-GI,
has made a campaign out of un-
veiling Jewish fighter. To date, he
admits failure. The money holds
no lure for boys who are possible
candidates. Goldie says that the
kids today are not ready to de-
prive themselves of luxuries and
necessities to enter the prize ring.
Track and Horse Racing
In track and field Irving Mond-
schein continued to hold sway as
one of the nation's premier de-
cathlon men and high jump art-
ists. Irving finally finished at
N.Y.U. and signed to coach three
sports at all-Negro Lincoln Uni-
versity. Ira Kaplan, a teammate
of Mondschein's at N.Y.U., came
along rapidly as a sprinter until
at the end of the indoor season
he was recognized as a tough man
to beat in the shorter sprints. He
still has eligibility left and bids
fair to become the nation's top
collegiate man in the short runs.
Vic Frank of Yale was just about
the best of all college discus
throwers and added the shot put
to his repertoire. He has another
season loft in football and track
and will be heard from again be-
fore hanging up his colors. Frank,
incidentally, rates among the
country's best football guards and
is the apple of Coach Herman
Hickman's eyes.

boy who wended his way south-

Test Yourself On Your Jewishness
By WALTER DUCKAT
(Copyright. 1M9, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.)
The establishment of Israel was the most heartening event
in the past two thousand years of Jewish history. Even Jews who
hitherto displayed little interest in the welfare of their people
were swept by the exhilarating quality of this dramatic achieve-
ment. The feeling of confidence and pride of Jews everywhere
was immeasurably lifted.
However, students of Jewish life agree that ewsmcouj
tries outside of Israel cannot afford to res. W *jknNh
Israel. Althouah we will continue to render aid toMjtod
Israel, the overwhelming portion of the Jews in the United States
will remain here. American Jewry has much to do to set its own
^^heigntance of many American Jews of their culture and
the failure of many Jews to participate in Jewish cultural and
.-ommunal activities must be replaced by a positive process of
education and well-rounded participation. An educated and
self^onscious American Jewry will prove a powerful support
to the Jews in Israel and throughout the world.
The following questionnaire is designed to help the reader

ganization?
5. Do you favor Jewish organizations in your

A New Year Message
By DR. JACOB H. KAPLAN
President Florida Rabbinical Association
T the Jewish Community of Greater Miami and of the
n tp of Florida, Greetings. Happy New Year to you all!
This is indeed a happy New Year. It is the beginning of
ond year of the State of Israel. We have prayed and
lh SH for this nearly two thousand years, and God has heard
r myers. We thank God for the miracle that He has per-
i rmed in our own day.
Let us not forget however that American Israel is still the
eatest Jewish community from the point of view of numbers
grewell as from the point of view of the variety of religious ex-
Priences we had here in this great American nation.
We sometimes forget that the synagogue and the Torah in
ihe synagogue were for all Jews everywhere the Land of Israel
' a the centuries smce we were driven out from our Land of
Israel and that the synagogue was and is the inspiration for all
the noble institutions of Jews that have set up separate homes,
o we must not forget that without American Judaism and
American Jewish contribution for the building of the Land of
Israel, the miracle of new born state could not have taken place.
We know that Israel shall inspire us in many ways through
its work and sacrifice, but we also know that American Israel,
democratically constituted, shall be an inspiration to the State
of Israel.
May God bless both Israel and American Israel to become
each a blessing to ourselves and a blessing to the whole of
humanity, as our Bible has so often promised it.

and bo erased like an error.
We cannot furnish one with a
formula which will gurantee ma-
terial success. We can arm, how-
ever, our youth with positive
ideas, with a mode of living and
with the fundamentals of our cul-
tural and spiritual heritage which
will give them power and strength
in years to come. Man's chief
virtues consist of honest and cour-
ageous convictions, and his re-
fusal to yield to the temptations
of expediences and material op-
portunities. For every conviction
that we hold dear, we have an
obligation which we must per-
form, and for every moral and
spiritual value that we wish to
preserve we must do so even at
the sacrifice of physical comfort.
Had the founders of our Ameri-
can democracy followed the road
which was most popular and most
expedient, the United States
would never have become the
champion of free institutions, and
the haven of refuge for minori-
ties all over the world. Had not
our co-religionists been firm in
their great conviction that a free
and democratic state will ulti-
mately be established in the
mountains of Judah, and in the
devastated areas of Palestine, Is-
rael would not have been accept-
ed today as a recognized state and
counted ;= a respected member in
the family of nations. May this
youngest state, and historically
perhaps the oldest, grow from
strength to strength.
Above all. we must seek knowl-
edge of our own selves. Self
knowledge, and self criticism are
the essence and vital elements in
the growth of personality and
spiritual selfhood. Our sages often
emphasize our duty to search
within the inner chambers of our
hearts, and Jewish students of
antiquity have often spoken of
the taking account of our inner
selves. This searching introspec-
tion, this turning of the search-
light into our hearts and souls
will enable us to discover our real
strength and weaknesses. It will
teach us that before we criticize
others we must be merciless in
self-criticism. It will develop
within us a spirit of modesty and
humility. Self-knowledge and
self-criticism are great cleansing
influences in our lives.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER ^
The Year In Jewish Sports
By HASKELL COHEN
.right. 194?. Jewish Telegi \- |
One of the most important mergers in the history of Ameri-
can sports took place on Auqust 3, when the National Basket-
ball League, long a power in professional basketball, and the
ihree-yeai old Basketball Association of America stopped their
warfare and joined forces to form a new leaguethe National
Basketball Association. The guid-
ing genius behind the merger was
Maurice Podoloff of New Haven.
Conn., president of the BAA.
whose expert organizational work
resulted in both leagues getting
together. Podoloff. who headed
the BAA since it? inception, was
made president of the new Na-
tional Basketball Association.
Podoloff. a man of many and
varied facets, has made his pres-
ence felt nationally since his
BAA. started professional bas-
ketball on a major league basis
back in 1946. A hockev -
for 20 years, president of a bank,
confidential real estate purchas-
ing agent for Yale Univ
an avid yachtsman. P od
brought all of these experiences
with him into the c >mpl< x tii I
running a new league His I
for organization, his abilities to
make ouick and decisive judg-
ments have brought him tiie
plaudits of men who have been
part of the national sports
for many years.
Podoloff first entered thi
field through ice hockey when.
. he entered inl |
nership with his brothers to build
the New Haven Arena. Although
he knew little about the ice
at the time, his exceptional fore-
sight enabled him t visualize the
potentialities of hockey in C m-
necticut,
New Haven first became con-
nected with professional hockey
in the Canadian American
Hockey League in 1926-27
Through the energetic efforts of
the Podoloff brothers, the city
has had representation in pro-
fessional hockey since, with the
exception of two years during tlu
war.
For the first few years of New
H I .key. Podoloff restricted
i ntirely to operating
New Haven. He was then elected
nt and took over
- of directing the entire
circuit. In 1936. the Canadian
A ican League merged with
the International Hockey League.
and became the American Hockey
the title which it retains

Although small in stature.
Podoloff is big in the way he gets
things accomplished, as is evi-
denced by the rapid growth of
the AHL. which is now one of
the leading spoi ts organizations in
the country. One of Podoloff's
principal tasks each season is t:ie
drawing of a schedule of games.
It is :n this capacity that he dis-
plays his organizing genius. With
so many events such as basket-
ball, ice shows, rodeos and cir-
cuses to be fitted into a 350-game
hockey schedule, it requires sup-
erhuman effort to cram every-
thing into the league arenas.
Podoloff never takes the matter
of hours into consideration when
he is working or traveling about
the country in behalf of his sports
empire. He is constantly striving
to improve conditions throughout
the circuit and. although ap-
proaching the 60-year mark, he
is eagerly looking ahead to the
dav when the American Hockey
League will have a higher place
in the realm of sport. He fore-
sees such a possibility in the not
too distant future as a number of
the leading cities in the country
are expected to seek AHL fran-
chises. New arenas are in the
drawing board stage and upon
their completion, such cities as
Rochester. Syracuse and others
will be welcomed into the AHL
fold to join the ten now in op-
eration.

The United Nations and Israel
By ALEXANDER GABRIEL
(J.T.A. correspondent at the
United Nations)
LAKE SUCCESS"We have
won the war; now we must win
the peace." This slogan which
haunted the Allies on the eve of
victory in World War II sums up
the position of Israel following
the collapse of the Arab armies
in Palestine.
The alternative to a conclusive
peace is that an unliquidated war
will deteriorate into a cold war
between Israel and the Arab
states in the same way that it
has produced the present cold
war between the war-time Allies.
The world in general and the
United Nations in particular know
only too well the fear that a cold
war may run out of control into
the real thing. Neither the young
state of Israel, nor the economi-
cally backward Arab countries
can afford the uncertainty and
the threat of a protracted half
peace.
At present this half peace has
brought to the Middle East free-
dom from violence, however tem-
porary, through the successful
and brilliant conclusion of four
armistice agreements. By man-
date of the Security Council reso-
lutions in November, Acting
Mediator Dr. Ralph J. Bunche, by
direct negotiations between Israel
and the separate Arab states,
hammered out detailed agree-
ment with Egypt, Lebanon,
Transjordan and finally Syria,
laying the foundation for more
hopeful outlook at the deadlocked
peace negotiations at Lausanne.
Iraq and Saudi Arabia bound
themselves by the Jordan and
Egyptian accords respectively,
while Yemen, too far removed
from the area, with no troops in
action, automatically lapsed into
non-violence.
While the agreements differ in
territorial and military juxta-
position of forces they all have
this in common: all carry identi-
cally worded provisos barring the
parties from resorting to force
in seeking to liquidate their dif-
ferences. Forces were withdrawn
and reduced behind carefully
designated neutral zones under
the vigilance of United Nations
observers. Mixed armistice com-
missions of the parties were es-
tablished to negotiate any dis-
putes threatening the truce and
to effect virtually unconditional
exchange of prisoners of war. But
above all the parties bound them-
selves to abstain from "planned"
war, that is any large-scale pre-
parations for resumed hostilities
beyond the immediate zones of
demilitarization. As summed up
by Dr. Bunche in his final report
on the agreements to the Security
Council: "Each agreement incor-
porates what amounts to a non-
aggression pact between the
parties."
Reassuring as this pronounce-
ment sounds, it must be remem-
bered that non-aggression pacts
are generally signed between
friends. But whiie there may be
truce and armistice between Is-
rael and the Arabs, there defi-
nitely is not and probably cannot
be friendship between them until
a final peace is written, settling
all of the outstanding problems
of the peace. Arab leaders even
now are using the threat of a
"second round" in the bargaining
at Lausanne.
This difficult task of negotiat-
ing the peace has been assigned
by the General Assembly to a
three-nation Conciliation Com-
mission consisting of the United
States, Turkey and France. Their
three-fold problem involves the
question of boundaries, the Arab
refugees and the question of Jeru-
salem.
The question of frontiers, com-
plicated by failure of non-Jewish
Palestine to gain the partition-
awarded independence, subsided
as a burning issue with the As-
sembly rejection of the Berna-
dotte report with its award of
the Negev and Jerusalem to the
Arabs. The city of greater Jeru-
salem was designated by the As-
sembly for internationalization
under the United Nations, while
the lines delineated in the arm-
istice accords are regarded as
virtual political decisions. Under
them Israel retains all of the
Negev but a coastal trip at Gaza
which is held by Egypt. Israel
holds the fertile area of Galilee.
In addition she retains Jerusalem.
Haifa, Jaffa and Lyddaall in
excess of the original partition
decision, but recognizes the de
facto control of Jordan in old
Jerusalem and non-Jewish Pales-
tine, subject to the disposition of
these areas by democratic means.
The greatest territorial threat
comes to Israel from the Assem-
bly insistence on the surrender of
Jerusalem to the United Nations
a threat she hopes to liquidate
in the forthcoming Assembly
with the famous compromise
formula put forth by President
Weizmann, placing the control of
the Holy Places under the control
of a United Nations Commission
and safeguarding foreign interests
in hospices, shrines and other in-
stitutions.
Crux of the peace is the 700,000-
800,000 Arab refugees who fled
Palestine. They are taxing the
relief resources of the United
Nations and pose a genuine eco-
nomic problem for all the parties.
Arab insistence on their return
to Israel, however rooted in the

met with the firmest Israeli re-
decision of the Paris Assembly,
sistance and virtually stalemated
the peace-feelers at Lausanne.
The commission in its reports to
the Security Council actually
recognized the impossible strain
on any economy such large-scale
absorption of refugees would
mean. However, the commission,
supported by direct intervention
from Washington did insist on
Israel's acceptance of some of
the refugees as a token of good
faitha demand which Israel is
willing to consider but only as
part of the terms of an overall
peace and in partnership with the
other Arab states. It is hoped that
the commission can work out an
agreement in time for Assembly
approval before the end of the
year.

"Father." said voung Emma Lazarus addressing her parent,
"I witnessed a brawl en the street today and it left me with a bad
impression." ...
"An incident, one of many such in a city teeming with a multi-
tude of people, is unimportant."
"In this instance there were five young men against one, Be-
laboring him cruelly." The father made no reply, and appeared in-
different.
"And the insults against the lonely lad. that is. against hisI
mean our Jewish people, that accompanied this unproved assault.
And again there was planned silence.
"What is more unbelievable, is that this may happen in the
metropolis of America, in a land truly cosmopolitan and free to all
peoples and beliefs." H ..
"My dear child." and the words came with deliberation, you ten
a story in stages, like climbing a tall building slowly, with a long
rest at every floor. I know the type of hoodlum you speak about. He
crossed over to a shelf, removed a volume, opened a page and read:
"We have had fearful riots here: the city has been lighted from
river to river with the glare of burning churches and private dwell-
ings: whole streets of this city of brotherly love look like pan-
demonium avenues of brass and copper in the lurid reflected light.
When the cross fell from the steeple these Christian folk gave three
cheers. For three days, the civil and military authorities did not
interfere, but as the city is obliged to pay for this sort of damage,
the militia at length turned out. The decent citizens organized them-
selves into a patrol, the streets were lined with soldiers, and order
was finallv restored The outrages have recommenced with more
furv than" ever. Philadelphia flares with burning churches and the
men are shot down in the streets and their houses pillaged in broad
daylight. The spirit of lawlessness has been growing here for some
time." ..
"This, mv dear." remarked the elder Lazarus, after replacing the
book, "is one incident of many that took place in the War between
the States." ,. .
"From this I may conclude." interjected the young woman, that
the hoodlums of this morning's disorder have completely forgotten
what others have suffered them to bear, and only two decades ago.
What a pity!" she muttered with genuine feeling, and continued,
"but there are other groups, too. who show evident aversion to our
people." .,
The father looked admiringly at his child, then smiled and
replied: __
"There is a psychological reason for every ill and evil. The
reason is sometimes a mere excuse, sometimes a lame explanation,
more often an apology." He was searching his mind for an illus-
tration.
"You have traveled a little, by coach and train. If you had ob-
served the faces of the seated passengers, at every station where
new travelers got on. you would sense the resentment at receiving
these fresh 'intruders.' The 'old' passengers have been in their seats
a bare five minutes or at most half an hour, and the vehicle is for
the use of the general public, but the 'old' passengers already feel
a sense of possession."
"And there are probably seats for all." laughed Emma, and the
father joined in this redeeming moment of pleasantry after the de-
pressing discussion of the woes of Israel. Both were silent.
"Wouldn't you think, father, that mankind would cooperate
one with another for mutual good?"
"Would you?"
"Most assuredly."
"I suppose, daughter, that this day is for story-telling, as when
you were a very young one. listening to a hundred-times-told tales
of many generations. Women, are, as someone has aptly said, only
grown-up children, and you are one of them."
"Do not discolor the issue, father, for your 'stories' are not
sleep-producing Aesopians. They always have a solid meaning. Come
along with your story about Man's inhumanity to Man. and see that
it is applicable."

Shall We Live Again?
I feel in myself the future life. I am like a forest
once cut down; the new shoots are stronger and
livelier than ever. I am rising, I know, toward the
sky. The sunshine is on my head. The earth gives
me its generous sap, but heaven lights me with the
reflection of unknown worlds.
You say the soul is nothing but the resultant
of the bodily powers. Why, then, is my soul more
luminous when my bodily powers begin to fail?
Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my
heart. I breathe at this hour the fragrance of the
lilacs, the violets and the roses, as at twenty years.
The nearer I approach the end the plainer I hear
around me the immortal symphonies of the worlds
which invite me. It is marvelous yet simple. It is a
fairy tale, and it is history.
For half a century I have been writing my
thoughts in prose and in verse, history, philosophy,
drama, romance, tradition, satire, ode and song; I
have tried it all. But I feel I have not said the
thousandth part of what is in me. When I go down
to the grave I can say like many others. "I have
finished my day's work," but I can not say, "I have
finished my life." My day's work will begin again
the next morning. The tomb is not a blind alley; it
is a thoroughfare. It closes on the twilight, it opens
on the dawn.

"Well" laughed the father of the noble poet at her stern

threat to their lives by flood or fire. Slowly they make their way
the higher terrain, away from danger, and when they arrive at
ihP summit they avoid harming each other, since they all appreciate
hcii- common danger. Not so with humans."
"Is there an approaching dawn in the sky, with some hope for
ihr redemption of future generations?"
"None. The prejudices of Europe now have a double wall
rnlieious and nationalistic. A cloud of hate rises high above each
hnrder The air in our own States is clear from pollution. We still
rmember the Founding Fathers and the foundations of liberty. Let
' hope that incoming people of Europe do not unconsciously bring

"Now you sound, father, like the 'old' passenger looking critical-
ly at the 'intruder,' as you called him a moment ago."
"Not at all. I welcome all, as an individual. I only_cherish_the
e that they might shed all the painful shells of old Europe. That
Jewish Quiz Box
Q.: What does the term "ben-
schen" mean?
A.: The term "benschen" is Yid-
dish for "to bless." Sometimes the
saying of grace after meals is re-
ferred to by this term because
grace actually constitutes a series
of "blessings," thanking God for
the food consumed.
Q.: Why is it customary to re-
move knives from the table be-
fore reciting grace?
A.: A number of interesting
reasons are offered for this cus-
tom. A symbolic reason is offered
in the Codes, citing the fact that
metal, especially in the form of a
sharp knife, is a means of curtail-
ing life, while the family table,
which has often been compared
to the Altar in the Temple, is a
means of prolonging life.
Reciting grace is a means of
thanking God for prolonging life
by means of food. Doing so in
front of an instrument that sym-
bolizes the curtailment of life
would be contradictory.
Ft is mv opinion that this tendency will ultimately isolate this coun-
try conclusively from the old hate-encrusted Europe. Clearly there
is no hope there for freedom. The common man of Europe would
nrobably free himself if he could, but his strength is limited, hence
he seeks a haven here. He comes here armed with a free spirit but
I fear the smuggling of narrow views."
"By the way," he said, looking quizzically at the charming
daughter at his side, "what is the sudden interest on your part? You
have always forged the noble ideas that the world is your country
and to do good is your religion."
"I fear, father, that we have been deceiving each other. I know
and vou do of the report from Russia during the two preceding
days on the vast slaughter of our helpless people. The Czar and his
minions have loosened their violence again, and more forcefully on
men, women and babes." No reply came from the elder, staring at
trifling scenes visible from his window. It was evident that the
larger window in his brain, encompassing world events, was giving
him more room for thought. .
"I made no mention of it to you. Apparently we are back
where we started, one thousand years ago, at a time when the Slavs
rated us high and, to the contrary, it was the Christian of Western
Europe that shed our blood."
"Where and how," asked the poet, "does one move an entire
people, scattered and homeless?"
The father turned to her, looking somewhat perturbed, and
asked: "Little woman, what are you doingwriting while I
replying to your queries?"
"I am listening, father," she hastily replied. It sounded like a
reprimand to her very severe respect for the elder. "I am scribbing
a few notes. You shall see them later."
"Well." he resumed, "our people in Europe need leadership and
much guidance. They have unity in only one direction, that is, for
immediate and urgent aid; otherwise they are as opposed to each
other as strangers. They read the same Bible, the Talmud, the Sages
of the Fathers and words of wisdomand the wisdom of the present
age as well. But each of them adduces his own conclusion. The Ger-
manic Jew has determined, with frightening loss of courage, that the
Jews alter their religion and join another faith; you may not believe
how general is this recommendation. The Russian Jew is for migra-
tion to Palestine, but only when he has heard the bugle call of the
Angel of Death. Others wait for a Messiah and as this must first be
planned in heaven it seems the least useful solution. The Jews in the
English-speaking world are certain that Palestine is in their lands.
Again the father glanced with uncertainty at the daughter
alternately looking at him or making notes. "Is it not time that I read
the wisdom you have been busily marking for posterity?' he asked.
"You honor the work before you have seen it," she said, a
rather unusual procedure. Jut wait a moment more. I am doing
very well by our people, while you are talking and believe me, I
have not lost a word of your historic discourse."
"Well," continued the father, "the only other obstruction to the
settlement of the Jews in Palestine is the cruel politics played by
the great powers, and the barbaric attitude of the Sultan Turkey.
All of these barriers are formidable, you will admit."
"You have presented the problem, father, but not the solution.
"Quite true. It is not a problem for any one man. Many genera-
tions have deliberated and rejected every solution offered. True,
there has been no cohesion, but that may come; a great catastrophe
may arouse our defense. Perhaps happy America will_ solve the
problem, for it is grounded in the mortar of humanity."
"That may be the solution," cried the daughter, rising from
her reclining position and handing the father the script that has been
the subject of her diligence during the discussion. "Read this. If it can
be proclaimed, like the Biblical injunction of the Liberty bell, the
noble ground of this land may build a refuge for the homeless.
The father read aloud:
THE NEW COLOSSUS
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, with conquering
limbs astride from land to land; here at our sea-washed
sunset gates shall stand a mighty woman with a torch, whose
flame is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of
Exiles. From her beacon-hand blows world-wide welcome,
her mild eyes command the air-bridged harbor that twin
cities frame. ...
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she with
silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled
masses yearning to be free. The wretched refuse of your
teaming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to
me. I lift my lamp besides the golden door."______

Q. What is the Tashlich cere- memories of historical events and
mony? leaves deep-rooted and lasting
impressions upon its observers.
The Bible is rich with refer-
ences to the significance of the
phenomenon of water. The prop-
het Isaiah, in describing the days
of everlasting peace in the Mes-
sianic era, speaks of the harmful
creatures of the universe as fol-
lows: "They shall do no hurt nor
destory in all my holy mountain:
for the earth shall be full of the
knowledge of the Lord, as the
waters cover the sea." Water is
thus described as an agent which
shall fill all the gaping holes of
a civilization which has witnessed
barbaric strife and cruelty. Water
is the Lord's purifying agent
which can cover up and wash
away all the scars of humanity.

A.: In Israel's vast reservoir
of customs and ceremonies one is
often puzzled at the significance
of certain rituals that have per-
sisted through the centuries. One
of these customs is the Tashlich
ceremony which is observed far
and wide by Jews in many lands.
Whether or not we observe this
practice, we are forced to take
cognizance of the fact, that in al-
most every town and hamlet, and
perhaps in every traditional syna-
gogue, there is always a group of
men and women who will, year
in and year out, on the New
Year's holiday, go out to a nearby
river or stream and recite the
Tashlich prayers. If we observe
them closely, we will notice that
some of them will shake put
either their pockets or the ex-
tremities of their garments, as
if to discard something into the
The verses from the prophet
Micah, which are recited at the
ceremony, imply this same char-
acteristic with added meaning

shalt cast all their sins into the

mentals, he was like the mariner
at the Pole with all the ends of
the earth pulling the compass in
contrary directions.
Little did he know that you can
not bestow favors upon unwilling
people, or that an evil condition,
When long continued, becomes an
accepted welfare; or that you can
not enforce unity upon a people
that is steeped in individualism.
Much more did Herzl not know
about the people he had vowed
to save, against its own will and
its adamant reluctance.'He groped
in absolute darkness.
Pathetic as it is and humiliat-
ing to the high mind, Herzl too
talked and "heard," from beings
of fact and fancy.
"I am Palestina," came a voice
and our friend unconsciously
smiled. "For aeons of years I have
floated in the ionosphere, mingl-
ing with the mechanics of the
universe. Amidst the constella-
tions and stars, through the ne-
bulae, among the asteroids,
comets, meteors and planets I
have delved into the mysterious
unknown force that moves with
regularity the stellar bodies.
"I first saw Earth when it
broke from Mother Sun, an in-
significant chunk, whirling off in-
dependently into space, only to
find that a magnetic power placed
it where it is and holds it within
the orbit. Earth was then a mass
of fire, water and matter, indis-
tinguishable, shrouded in a mist
of steam, fumes and smoke.
Masses of molten lava about in
vest waves. Slowly the fires fad-
ed. Earth cooled and cataclysmic
upheavals caused deep tremors,
created gulfs and protruding
heights. Water covered all the
Earth but as the violent move-
ments relaxed and the waters
moved north and south and be-
came vast stretches of ice they
revealed over the remaining lands
the fullness of mountains and the
majestic oceans.
"Earth suffered in its slow
formation, but out of its millenia
of travail came forth in slow de-
grees Man, King of the Earth.
"I chose a zone of Earth upon
which I bestowed my name. Out
of the rainbow I sliced colors
which I embodied into soil and
produce, its grapes, olives, and
pomegranates, the eucalyptus and
citrus, in the Dead Sea and the
fertile ground, and in the waves
that dance about its shores. With
my hands I shaped the rolling
hills and molded the sloping ter-
races; and beneath soil I placed
the seeds for wine, fruit and sus-
tenance. From Mother Sun I con-
veyed a warmth that soothes and
heals, I brought nearer the stars
that shine like brilliants and the
moon to shed greater lustre dur-
ing the nights. I placed a moun-
tain range on its border to thwart

Germany's Jewry Today
By ERNEST LANDAU
How many Jews will remain in
Germany after the end of the DP
immigration wave to Israel and
the United States? What will be
their future, politically and
socially?
These are the main questions
raised wherever I talked with
Jews during my three-months
visit in the United States as a
representative of the Jewish Com-
munities of Bavaria.
To find out the approximate
number of Jews remaining in
Germany after June. 1950. one
must consider that mass migra-
tion probably will be finished by
that deadline. Individual emigra-
tion will be important even after
the end of IRO activities because
there are Jews in Germany who
do not wish to settle in Israel
under the present circumstances,
and are not eligible to immigrate
into the United States under the
current DP act.
The change in the DP legisla-
tion of the United States, which
is anticipated by very many Jews
in Germany and Austria who are
ready to leave these countries,
will probably bring a new migra-1
tion movement, even after the
end of IRO activities.
It is necessary to separate the
Jews in Germany into two main
groups:
1. Probable emigrantsafter
the new DP legislation is f
in the United States. Thev will
number about 10.000. .
2. Jews who wish to remain |
in the German economy, and i
sooner or later become regular |
citizens, depending upon the de-
velopment of the German be-
havior toward the Jews. Their
number is estimated at between
20.000 and 25.000: and it will in-
clude about 15.000 persons who;
are now DP's.
It is. however, to be said that
among the above mentioned cate-
gory there are some who will
wish to emigrate during the next
ten years, as individuals did dur-
ing the time between the first
World War and the rise of Hitler.
The number of Jews who remain
in Germany five. ten. or more
years will depend mostly upon
the internal political development
in Germany.
Who are the Jews who will
remain in Germany? What is their
economic and social future? And
how far will they be able to con-
tribute to the spiritual tasks of
a Jew?
As has already been stated,
among the Jews who are going to
remain in Germany there will be
approximately 15.000 DP's who
had the opportunity to become a
part of the German economy.
Thev have the feeling that no-
where else will they have the
same economic opportunities, and
that their re-establishment in anv
other country will never permit
them the same living standard
thev have in Germany.
Most of them have satisfactory
business connections. Some of
them own shops: some have larg-
er businesses or have jobs per-
mitting them to earn a satis-
factory living. It is, however, true
that many would rather live else-
where. Their hope is to earn suf-
ficient money in Germany to per-
mit them to settle later in another
country under better starting
conditions than they would have
without capital.
These people are completely
self-supporting, and are to be
considered the main contributors
to the future Jewish communities.
The second group of DP's con-
sists of people who wish to emi-
grate to the United States and not
to Israel. They do not wish to
remain in Germany, but do so
because they are expecting more
favorable DP legislation. They are
not necessarily anti-Zionists, but
simply have the feeling that they
will have better opportunities in
the United States than in Israel.
They are. in general, able to
support themselves. If the antici-
pated DP legislation does not
emerge, they will have to make
up their minds whether to leave
for Israel or to adapt themselves
to the German economy.
I There is a third group of DP s
in Germany which would like to
leave the country as soon as pos-
sible Their economic situation is
bad. Most of them cannot leave
!the country because of their
physical condition. They are the
real hardship-cases. Most of them
are chronically ill or invalids.
1 manv have tuberculosis or other
incurable sicknesses. Israel is not
vet able to accept them.
!" It is understood that Israel will
I be readv to accept them within
I the next three to five years, par-
ticularly if the necessary funds
are made available by interna-
tional bodies such as IRO. or by
voluntary Jewish charity organ-
izations. There is. of course, no
doubt that these people will never
be eligible for immigration into
anv other country but Israel be-
cause of their physical condition.
In the meantime, they have to
i wait. Their future is a very inse-
; cure one. particularly since the
IRO is scheduled to stop its ac-
tivities by the end of June. 1950.
It therefore will be one of the
major tasks of Jewish charity and
welfare organizations, both local

5709 In Jewish History
By A. GREEN
Off all the history-making events that crowded upon the
Republic of Israel durinq the first full calendar year of its
existence, the future historian will probably select as the two
most outstanding ones the entry of a quarter-million Jewish
immigrants into the little country, the qreatest trek in Jewish
history, and the establishment of
"church-state" relations. While
the government proclaimed reli-
gious liberty for all the inhabit-
ants, non-Jews as well as Jews.
Orthodox Jews clamored for more
and more official recognition of
their faith as the dominant reli-
. gion of the state for Sabbath
butz galiuth," the "re-assembly observance and kashruth in pub-
of the exiles." was on in full iIlc pIace.iand institutions, and so
blast during 5709. It brought the | n- A* the new year begins the
population of the new-born Jew- I conflict over the religious ques-
ish state close to a million. It on has not been resolved and
created problems, terrific prob- uch good will on all sides will
Jems, problems of housing and be, required if 5710 is to see a
a temporary peace between Israel
and all its Arab neighbors, of an
armistice which gave Israel that
chance to lay a firm .foundation
for its future existence.
The great return to their anci-
ent land, of which Jews had
dreamt for centuries, the "kib-
employment particularly. Jews
all over the world, and in Amer-
ica particularly, were called upon
for assistance in this heroic ef-
fort to re-establish the remnants
of martyred European Jewry in
the new Jewish republic by the
Mediterranean. The problems and
the heroic efforts that must be
made to overcome them will con-
tinue into the new year 5710.
The establishment of a tem-
porary peace with the Arabs also
left many serious problems of
Jew-Arab relations unsolved,
chief among them the return of
Arab refugees to Israel and the
future status of Jerusalem. But as
the new year dawns it looks as
if the first problem at least, that
of the Arab refugees, will soon be
straightened out by the admis-
sion of 100,000 Arabs and that
one important cause for tension
between Israel and the Arab
countries will be thereby elimin-
ated.
The year 5709 also saw the es-
tablishment of the first perman-
ent Jewish government in Israel,
the election of the first Israeli
parliament, and the inauguration
of Chaim Weizmann as first Pres-
ident of the Republic, and the
choice of David Ben Gurion as
Premier, by a coalition of moder-
ately socialist and religious
groups. It witnessed the admis-
sion of Israel as a member of the
United Nations, its recognition as
a sovereign state by nearly all
the important countries of the
world and its declaration of neu-
trality as between the Western
and Eastern blocs of nations.
The year commenced with the
shadow of the assassination of
Count Bernadotte hovering over
the new nation and threatening
to isolate it from the world com-
munity. As the year ended, how-
ever, the world community real-
izing that Israel's intentions were
of the most peaceful sort and that
it was willing to resolves its dif-
ferences with its Arab neighbors
in a spirt of compromise, took the
young republic to its heart. Thus
even England, which had inflicted
so much suffering upon the new
Jewish state, changed its atti-
tude, gave Israel recognition and
promised to maintain friendly re-
lations with it in the future.
Of the internal problems of
Israel, next in importance to the
economic problem of absorbing
hundreds of thousands of new
Jews, of creating new industries
and cultivating new agricultural
lands, was the religious problem,

solution.
Capital-labor differences in Is-
rael also assumed some import-
ance during the past year. Vitally
needed capital investments from
abroad, it was said, were being
held up because of lack of con-
fidence on the part of profit-
seeking capitalists in the inten-
tions of Ben Gurion's moderately
socialist government and because
of the grip on the economy of the
country held by Histadruth, the
General Federation of Labor. The
extreme leftist labor party,
Mapam, on the other hand, re-
sented the decree of the govern-
ment reducing both wages and
prices in an effort to curb in-
flation, and unsuccessfully at-
tempted to call a general protest
strike.
As the mass-emigration from
Europe to Israel began to taper
off by the end of the year, Israel
began to look forward to a mass
emigration from North Africa
and other Arab lands. That was
beginning to create another se-
rious problem, that of integrating
masses of backward Oriental Jews
into the life of the modern, West-
ern-minded Jewish community of
Israel.
All in all, it can be said that
the first full year of Israel's
existence, while filled with diffi-
culties, even more difficulties
than a fledgling state would nor-
mally encounter, proved the stab-
ility of the new nation, the
strength of its will to live and the
respectful recognition of that will
by the nations of the world.

Jewish history during the past

What Do You Know
By HARRY CUSHING
We are now starting a new
Jewish year, but what do you
know about th Jewish calendar.
How does it differ from the
secular calendar?
To most Jews the Jewish calen-
dar is a mvsterious compendium,
but in reality it is a simple table
of dates which anyone can follow
quite easily. The Jewish calendar
is actually an indispensable item
in everv Jewish household. With-
out Jewish calendaror "Luach
__one is at a complete loss not
onlv as to the dates of the Jewish
festivals but as to personal ob-
servances.
The need for a calendar was
evident in the dim past of Israel's
historv. Although they did not
have "a set calendar or table by
which to reckon dates, the ancient
Hebrews had a system of com-
puting time with the sun and the
moon as a basis for the record for
the sequence of events. Jewish
tradition has it that there is divine
authority for the use of the sun
and the moon to compute time.
Psalms contains the statement:
"He appointed the moon for the
seasons."
While the tribes of Israel were
still nomads wandering in the
deserts of Arabia they already
were concerned abouts the sea-
sons. When the Hebrews settled
in Palestine, as an agricultural
people, familiarity with the sea-
sons was even more imperative,
so the Jewish farmer had to de-
velop some kind of table by which
to calculate the seasons of the
year. The earliest of such calen-
dars was found in an excavation
near the ancient city of Geber.
Written in ancient Hebrew script,
archeologist have decipered the
table to read:
"A month of fruit harvest.
A month of sowing.
A month of after-grass.

A month of flax harvest.
A month of barley harvest.
A month of everything else.
A month of vine pruning.
A month of fig harvest.
The need for a method of reck-
oning the months was necessary
in computing the dates of the va-
rious Hebrew festivals. The fix-
ing of the calendar did not occur
until about the first century of
the Christian era. The system
which prevailed in ancient times
as to the setting of the days to
observe festivals was not too in-
volved. Men of high repute served
as observers atop the higher
mountains to watch for the ap-
pearance of the new moon.
Upon noting the first signs of
the narrow crescent, each observ-
er kindled a bonfire on the peak
where he was stationed. When
the bonfires nearest Jerusalem
were noted in the distance, the
arrival of the new moon was pro-
claimed from the Temple area by
the blowing of silver trumpets.
Then followed the announcement
of festivals or holy days within
the month, which was the pre-
rogative of the Sanhedrin. the
Supreme Court of the Jewish
people.
The system of notifying the
populace of the arrival of the
new moon via bonfires was used
to inform Jews even outside the
limits of Palestine, such as those
in Babvlonia. However, the Jews
in Egypt. Persia. Greece and
Rome "were notified by special
messengers who were dispatched
from the Holv City to inform the
Jews in the Diaspora of the exact
dates of the holidays.
While the Jews lived in their
own land and maintained their
autonomy, they were content to
carry on their affairs with this
informal and simple month-to-
month calendar. However, when
Palestine became a Roman pro-
vince, the conquerors very often
interfered with the observance
of Jewish laws and customs. They
even prevented the Sanhedrin
from carrying out its duties and
functions.
Because of these handicaps.
Jewish communities outside of
Palestine were left on many oc-
casions in doubt as to the time of
festivals and fasts. For example,
during the patriarchate of Rabbi
Judah I, surnamed "the Holy"
(163-193). the Samaritans, in
order to confuse the Jews, set up
fire-signals at improper times and
thus caused the Jews to fall into
error with regard to the day of
the New Moon. Since the observ-
ance of all the holidays was cal-
culated from Rosh Chodesh (New
Moon). Rabbi Judah decided to

abolish the use of fire-signals and
employed messengers.
Doubts still arose in many in-
stances and the custom was then
introduced to add an extra day
to the observance of the various
festivals. Hence, although the
Bible commands that Passover be
observed for seven days, it was
decided to celebrate the festival
for eight days. In this way, it was
hoped to correct any miscalcula-
tion that might have been made.
Incidentally, this system has pie-
vailed up to the present time, al-
though we now have a systemat-
ized Hebrew calendar.
It was becoming apparent that
there was need for a permanent
calendar table. One of the first
rabbis whose studies helped in
the final creation of the Jewisn
calendar, as we know it, was
Samuel, who was born in Nehar-
dea. Babylonia, about 165 and
died there about 257. It was said
of him that he was as familiar
with the paths of the heavens as
he was with the streets of his
native city.
Besides being a noted rabbi,
Samuel possessed a thorough
knowledge of medicine as it was
known in his times, being espe-
cially skillful in the treatment of
the eye. He devoted himself to
that branch of applied astronomy
which deals with calendric sci-
ence, which he taught to his pupils
and colleagues. His astronomical
studies of the revolutions of the
moon enabled him to predict the
beginning of the month as de-
termined in Palestine, and he
claimed to be able to remove the
necessity of celebrating the extra
day of festivals in the Diaspora.
He also computed a sixty-year
calendar. Samuel was also known
by the surname of Yarchina'ah.
from the Hebrew "yerech,"
meaning "month" because of his
familiarity with calendric science.
Under the patriarchate of Judah
the Prince (300-330), astron-
omical calculations began to be
used and the testimony of wit-
nesses regarding the appearance
of the New Moon was listened to
only as a formality. The idea of
utilizing astronomic calculations
was viewed with disfavor by some
members of the Sanhedrin. espe-
cially Rabbi Jose, who communi-
cated with the Jewish communi-
ties of Babylonia and Alexandria,
urging that they continue to fol-
low the custom of celebrating an
extra day on festivals, advice
which is still being followed by
Orthodox and Conservative Jews
but which has been abrogated by
the Reform movement.
Finally, in the fourth century,
the patriarch Hillel the Second,
wrote down definite rules and
had them adopted by the Jewish
communities of the world. Hillel's

j evident that names were

Bews were taken to Baby-

Babylonian months are almost
identical with those of the cur-
rent Hebrew calendar.
While the names of the secular
calendar months are in honor of
ancient pagan dieties, the Hebrew
months describe the seasons of
the calendar year. Hence, Nisan,
the month during which Pass-
over falls, evidently means flow-
er, for it occurs at the season
when Palestine's flora are in full
bloom; Ellul means gathering, oc-
curring at the beginning of the
Palestine fruit harvest. Kislev,
the month in which Chanuka
falls, means the season of mud
and rain. It comes during the Pal-
estine rainy season. Iyar means
blossom; Sivan, splendor; Tamuz,
parched earth; Adar, beauty.
It is to be noted that the Jewish
calendar is based on Anno Mundi,
referring to the traditional year
of the creation of the world. All
other peoples have based their
calendars on some event in their
national history. The Jews, how-
ever, wish to associate their cal-
endar with the history of the
world, hence, it may be said that
the New Year 5709, refers to the
date of written history of man-
kind. Since the written history
of mankind is no more than 6,000
years old, the Jewish calculation
is fairly accurate.
It is interesting to observe that
up to the year 533, the Chris-
tians followed the Jewish mode
of calculation, going back to Anno
Mundi. They refused to follow
the Greek and Roman methods
of reckoning dates because they
were connected with pagan rites
which the early Christians sought
to avoid. The setting of the Chris-
tian New Year on January 1, a
pagan festival, was later justified
by Christianity as the day of the
circumcision of Jesus. The current
secular calendar year presumably
goes back to the birth of Jesus,
although many scholars insist
that the year one corresponds to
the second or fourth year of
Jesus' life.
The Jewish people who live so
closely with their Christian
neighbors have universally adopt-

ed the Christian calendar, but in
religious matters, the Hebrew
calendar is retained.
Up until three or four genera-
tions ago the Jewish calendar
was used consistently by Jews
not only in calculating religious
dates but in their daily affairs.
Jewish businessmen and shop-
keepers kept records according to
the Hebrew Luach. Many Jews
are still cognizant of their birth-
days according to the Hebrew
calendar, and the Bar Mitzvah
date of a lad is based on the
Luach.
Primarily, the Hebrew calen-
dar or Luach continues to be
a guide for the observance of
Jewish holidays and festivals, and
in marking the yahrzeit or death
anniversary of relatives. The cake
of custom encrusting Jewish life
has preserved and protected it.
And thanks to the thick layers
of custom, Jewish life underneath
has remained intact. In fair
weather and in foul, the Jewish
holidays and periodic observances
in communal and personal Jew-
ish life, thanks to the Hebrew
Luach, are still the best way and
means of preserving Jewish life
for generations to come.

Rosh Hashona Reflections
FH1DAY, SEPTEMBEH n ..,,
By DAVID SCHWARTZ
Rosh Rashona was so different
from the secular New Year. It
was so differently observed, too.
The secular New Year's Day was
gay and hilarious. Ours was sol-
emn. Despite our clothing stores
and what not, we Jews seemed to
be a God-intoxicated people.
It came, too, at such a different
time. Like Emma Lazarus said,
not when "the naked branches
point to frozen skies" but when
"the orchards burn with fiery
gold, the grape glows like a pre-
cious jewel" and nature teems
with abundance.
We lived in a small town and
on Rosh Hashona even the non-
Jews seemed to get something of
the spirit of the day, for they
must have felt that the Jews took
on a kind of holiness on that day.
And this spirit must have been
contagious, as any form of sin-
cerity is. At least, so I felt.
Who is a Jew and who is not?
That question was frequently
asked by our elders and there
were many divergencies of
opinion. If a man didn't keep
Sabbath, was he a Jew? If he ate
forbidden food, was he a Jew?
On Rosh Hashona, the question
seemed to settle itself. Everyone
who refrained from work was a
Jew.
We children sensed the agita-
tion of the day in our parents'
minds. We heard papa say that
if a man committed a wrong
against his neighbor, he must go
and ask forgiveness, for in the
synagogue, only sins against God
could be forgiven. Sins against
man must be forgiven by the man
sinned against.
Rosh Hashona had a lot to do
with sins. You go to the river and
cast your sins into the water. We
had a little lake in our town and
I guess a lot of its mud came from
our sins. I sometimes fancy that
many pretty flowers would grow
on some of this mud, for it seems
to me that there are many little
sins that really have much to
commend them. If you give a per-
son a little of the honey of flat-
tery, you may sin against the
truth, yet it is a pretty thing for
all that. Our real sin is our want
of fundamental faith. Had we
that, we should not stoop to slan-
der or hate which evidence the
distrust of our own powers.
The synagogues were jammed
on Rosh Hashona. On that day a
policeman stood in front of the
synagogue in our town. I always
resented his being there. Even in
those days we used to tell each
other the story about the man
who asked permission of the po-
liceman to go in for a moment to
look for a friend. The man had
no ticket. "All right," said the
policeman, "but if I catch you
praying, God help you."
Most of the time it seemed
there were as many outside the
synagogue talking as inside pray-
ing. It was the day when the
whole community gathered for
conversation. We came to talk

with God but we stole some time
to talk to each other. I think God
will forgive us this theft. In fact,
it is my belief that God approves
of it. I rather think He frowns
upon the more modern, more de-
corous form of worship, where
everyone quietly retires to his
own hearth and fireside after the
services. The term "religion," I
believe, means "to tie together."
How better can you tie people
together than by having them
talk to one another? In the name
of an insipid decorum, we latter-
day Jews have sacrified much of
the real vitamins of religion.
The cantor put on his best per-
formance on Rosh Hashona. He
had been rehearsing for weeks
and likely as not he would spring
some new melody on the con-
gregation. The synagogue in those
pre-radio days was one place
where the people got something
like opera.
And then there was the blow-
ing of the shofar. You could un-
derstand why the ancient He-
brews used the shofar to summon
their soldiery to combat. The
piercing sound seemed in har-
mony with the day, when you
read in your prayer book:
"This day, all creatures of the
world stand in judgment."
It sounded fearsome. We were
misnagdim. The Chassidim took it
with less awe. Their rabbi, like
the great Isaac Leib of Berditchef,
who could call out, "Good Morn-
ing God," could demand of Provi-
dence in a tone more peremptory
than prayer, that He grant Israel
a happy new year.
We saw our parents beat their
breasts as they confessed their
sins. I remember as a child being
a little taken aback at the amount
of sinning that was confessed to
in the prayer book. Judging by
the prayers, it appears that it
was assumed that every worship-
per had committed all the sins on
the calendar. We Jews seemed to
say in our synagogues, no sin is
alien to us.
And perhaps that is a healthy
outlook. When we assume that
attitude we cease sitting in judg-
ment on others.
Yes, Rosh Hashona was a day
of much praying, much talking,
much mingling, music and shofar
blowing and when we got home
we dipped some apples in honey,
symbolic of a sweet year and
wished one another that they be
"written" down for a happy new
yearbut the term "written" used
to trouble me.
How could they be writing up
in the skies on Rosh Hashona! Is
it not forbidden to "write" on
that day. Did not Jewish concepts
hold that the Law was as applica-
ble on Heaven as on earth. Did
not the Chassidim teach that God,
too, put on his philacteries every
morning?
But then there was the de luxe
yom tov meal which mama had
prepared, which seemed to re-
solve even the mental doubts.

A Kibbutz Grows In The Negev

BEERSHEBAFar down in the southern littoral of Israel,
near where the northwestern Neqev marches with the ap-
proaches to Egyptian-held Gaza, a memorial woodland was
planted the other day.
Pine saplings were lovingly placed in the soil where, a
earlier, wilderness battles
year
had raged. The occasion was the
first anniversary of the deaths of
a group of gallant boys and girls
of the Palmach. who fell on this
spot in beating back a formidable
invasion army.
The desert bluffs of Huleikat
and its strong-points nearby were
drenched with their blood. The
commemorative ceremony for the
'teen-aged defenders took place
nearby in the small and battered
Kibbutz of Gvar-Am, where they
withstood the furious attacks of
forces far superior in numbers
and equipment to their own.
Hundreds of people, relatives
and comrades-in-arms of the fall-
en young Israelis, attended the
simple, though stirring, ceremony.
The place, almost opposite the
Biblical site of Ascalon on the
coast, will be revered in the his-
tory of those defense bastions
within which the independent,
sovereign state of Israel was firm-
ly established.
The Kibbutz at Gvar-Am is
still a small one. It began life in
1935 as a small group calling it-
self "Machar" (Tomorrow), and
went on the land at Kfar Saba,
on the plain of Sharon. There it
remained until 1944, when the
kibbutz was assigned by the Jew-
ish National Fund an area of
4.000 dunams (1,000 acres) in the
Negev.
Their new settlement was lo-
cated 20 kilometres north of the
Arab port of Gaza and about 12
kilometres south of Negba. It in-
cluded a citrus-grove of 100
dunams, and in the first jear of
settlement, the farmers were able
to pick a moderate crop of citrus
fruit and to join in the export
shipments to British markets.
The first pioneer group went
out from the lush and verdant
fields of Kfar Saba to the arid
Negev wastelands in 1944. A year
later they were joined by their
fellow-settlers, wives and chil-
dren who remained in the Kfar
Saba region during the prepara-
tory period.
The first budget they were
granted by the Jewish Agency
amounted to 28,000 pounds and
within a short period the pioneers
were able to install an irrigation
network and other machinery.
The story of Kibbutz Gvar-Am
is the story of most of the pio-
neering groups which undertake
the arduous task of turning the
wilderness into fertile areas.
Year-by-year the settlers added
a little more to their property;
they put up buildings, built roads
and fences, extended their water
installations. They planted gar-
dens and laid down groves. They
acquired livestock.
In the fall of 1944, there were
about a hundred and sixty men,
women and children on the spot.
It began to assume a civilized ap-
pearance wholly out of keeping
wit ft the grim, dour landscape of
the parched Negev. The story
paralleled those of the other
frontier settlements in the south-
land of Israel.
As their assets grew, the settlers
started borrowing from local
banking agencies for expansion.
A Happy New Year To All

In 1944, they needed a truck.
They had received permission
from the Palestine (British) gov-
ernment to purchase a Chevro-
let three-tonner, and it was to
the Central Bank of Cooperative
Institutions in Palestine, Ltd., that
they applied for a loan of 1,000
pounds to finance the purchase.
The Central Bank is the oldest
subsidiary of the Palestine Eco-
nomic Corporation, veteran
American development company
which has been operating in Is-
rael since 1926.
Gvar-Am pointed proudly to
its record in the ensuing years.
In 1945, it took in a group of 30
new immigrants, survivors of the
notorious Nazi death-map at Ber-
gen Belsen. At the end of the
year, another ten immigrants
from the European DP camps
joined it. They needed housing.
Again they turned to the Central
Bank. They were granted an ini-
tial loan of 700 pounds of a joint
housing fund conducted by the
bank with the Jewish Agency.
A most unusual form of col-
lateral was taken by the Central
Bank, which administers the fund.
In view of the legal difficulty of
obtaining a mortgage upon un-
parcelled, communal property,
the bank agreed instead to accept
a lien on livestock. As cover for
the construction of seven rooms
for immigrant newcomers, the
Kibbutz pledged a cow, a heifer
and seven calves of its dairy
herd.
A year later, the Central Bank
granted another loan of 400
pounds out of its joint housing
fund with the Jewish Agency,
this time to enable Kibbutz
Gvar-Am to build four more
rooms for newcomers. The col-
lateral was similarfour black-
and-white cows.
A significant note reached the
Central Bank's head office in Tel
Aviv in May, 1948, when the Arab
states began their invasion of Pal-
estine. It came from the Youth
and Child Aliyah Department of
the Jewish Agency, and it said
simply: "This is to inform you
that Kibbutz Gvar-Am absorbed
33 youth immigrants during the
month of December 1947."
The Kibbutz needed a further
loan, this time of 1,000 pounds to
build more accommodations for
the youngsters it was absorbing.
They offered machinery as col-
lateral.
At present, the Kibbutz owes
the Central Bank a total of 2.144
pounds. Of the amount 1,764
pounds is due for the construc-
tion of dwelling rooms for the
young folk and others whom it
absorbed since it went on the
land in the Negev. The remainder
is the balance of a loan given to
increase agricultural production,
a highly vital factor in the cur-
rent move to secure Israel's self-
sufficiency in provisioning
Gvar-Am is returning to its
normal ways. It is becoming once
again a peaceful farm settlement,
tilling the soil and enjoying the
fruits thereof. Yet fighting which
raged in its vicinity a year ago
is still a vivid memory, and so
are those who fell in guarding
this defense bastion of the State
of Israel.
A vivid memory, and a chal-
lenge, too, to the dark forces
which sought to overcome the
men and women who settled in a
wilderness so as to win it back
to new life. The budding wood-
land today will, in the years to
come, perpetuate that challenge.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23. I949

The United Nations And Israel
(Continued from Page 49)
lope that the Assembly itself will
ealize that its Paris decision,
vith its hurried conclusions on
he refugees and Jerusalem, was
>rejudicial rather than stimulat-
ng to peace negotiations. It is
loped at least in Tel Aviv that
he Assembly will accept the
Veizmann compromise on the
ferusalem issue. Beyond that the
Vssembly can hardly take any
iction on the peace without a re-
>art from the commissionex-
ept the urgent action recom-
nended by the Secretariat for
inother appropriation to keep the
elief program for the refugees
:oing.
In this tussle with the Assem-
>ly the State of Israel now has
he advantage of membershipa
irilliant victory she has added
o the solid international status
he enjoys through diplomatic
ecognition by more than 40
tates.
Peace is essential to the young
"ewish state now caught in the
oils of an over-expanded immi-
;ration to a fledgling economy.
Vt the same time. Israel indi-
ated she will not surrender long-
erm political gains for short-
erm economic advantages. Her
>osition at Lausanne is to ne-
iotiate up to the hilt, to meet
roposals with counter-proposals,
o offer fair and equitable so!u-
ions. But if the Arabs prefer to
.ait Israel insists she too can
.old out.
In short, through an indomit-
: ble spirit of nationalism, inde-
pendence, courage and resource-
ulness. Israel has overcome the
lmost insurmountable obstacles
laced in her path. She has
hreaded through the skein of all
[he power rivalry and intrigue
.hich attended the Palestine is-
ue in the United Nations.
She has been and will continue
0 be subjected to the highest
pressure to yield vital interests
o the strategic aims of the big
owers. In Paris it was the famous
Security Council subcommittee on
sanctions" which tried to de-
prive her of the Negev. At Lake
Success it is now the lifting of
the arms embargo on the Middle
East which Israel says will re-
arm the Arabs and force Israel
into a costly armaments race.
Such a move before a final peace
is written is fraught with grave
peril in what all agree is the most
"sensitive" spot in the cold war
struggle.
If the big powers and the world
wants peace and the Arabs want
a prosperous regional U.N. eco-
nomy in their area, Israel says
they will find her ready for both
in the highest sense of construc-
tive and creative initiative and
cooperation. She will support but
not surrender her Biblical destiny
to the United Nations, a stand
which has earned her the highest
regard of most of the United NasJ
tions member states. They ex-
pressed that regard when they
awarded her overwhelming mem-
bership in the community of na-
tions at the very moment when
she challenged the Assembly de-
cision on Jerusalem.
By this unprecedented action
the Assembly has in fact defined
the relations of the United Na-
tions to its youngest Israeli mem-
ber: honest 'agreement, honest
disagreement and mutual trust
and respect.
Chiefly responsible for this re-
lationship is Aubrey S. Eban, Is-
rael's chief representative to the
U.N. The virtuoso diplomacy and
eloquence with its uncanny bent
for puncturing the complicated
sham which often befuddled al-
ready complicated issues estab-
lished him in the minds of the
delegations as a top-ranking
statement in the U.N. galaxy. His
verbal rapier thrusts slashed
through last-ditch efforts in
Paris to reshuffle Israel's terri-
torial gains, to deprive her of
victories and to keep her from a
seat in the family of nations.

regularity, with a mild breeze to
refresh man and beast.
"Then appeared my son Abra-
ham. Dignified in form, stalwart
and strong, black hair adorned
his head and his beard cascaded
in fullness. His head denoted
mental strength and his eyes
great vision. His Hittite nose
added an imperial personality and
a power of persuasion over others.
He possessed human courage over
animal bravery. His manner was
all grace and a majestic appear-
ance. His tributes and devotion
to Sarah, a divine and queenly
help-mate, showed rectitude of
purpose and an even sense of
justice ana generosity. Then fol-
lowed the dutiful Isaac and his
spouse Rebecca, Jacob the Devout
with Leah and Rachael and their
sons. Thus was laid the firmness
of Israel and the foundation of
Palestina."
Herzl rose and mirrored him-
self. He paid no heed to the
others, the mimicking and the
abuse. The man who presumed in
the past that Israel will be as-
similated and be lost and for-
gotten forever already felt solid-
ly the self-reliance that is the
mainstay of Israel.
'I am Abraham," he mused, as
he saw his image and remem-
bered the description of the anci-
ent father of his people, the
cascading beard and the proud
nose. "It is I," he repeated over
and over again. "Beautiful land,"
he continued, "and I have never
seen it, nor have my people or
my forebears for two thousand
years. If it has suffered from my
absence we shall soon repair it.
Why has it been left for genera-
tions past to foreign hands to
desecrate?"
"Hear, Abraham," came the call
again to the prostrate mind of our
new redeemer, "I am Moses. You
will need great strength and over-
whelming patience. When I found
Israel he had already forsaken
his land, so assiduously prepared
for him, and had wandered into
the land of the Pharaohs who
had levied upon his rigid slavery,
and hard labor. Israel built tem-
ples which he could not enter; he
irrigated land with his blood to
produce food for others. His num-
bers multiplied only to create
more slaves. I brought him out
of slavery and despondency, but
no sooner had I retreated to write
for him a code of ethics and life
than he threatened to return to
the flesh-pots and chains of
Egypt. He had courage, indeed,
but no obedience; to obey he
first had to understand and be
convinced. I willed, for the good
of Israel, that the generation of
slaves shall not enter Palestine
and those who do enter shall be
free of mental chains and shall
have moral and physical re-
genesis."
"Moses, Oh, Moses," wailed
silently his successor, as if it were
real and revealing, instead of a
refreshing recollection of his
studies in childhood, now revived
in his own mind for the tasks to
come. But now a fresh voice came
to him out of nowhere.
"I am Maimonides, and my
tomb is in Palestine, where it has
been awaiting the arrival of my
people for nearly one thousand
years. I visaged the eternal wan-
dering of Israel, after internecine
strife caused him to be uprooted
Israel wandered without goal,
raiting momentarily to weep by
the waters of Babylon, then on-
ward; over the mountain ranges
to the land of Confucius, across
the deserts, beyond the sea to
distant lands when he never re-
turned and to every spot of hu-
man habitation. Far to the north,
vast and unknown primitive
lands, to the shores of storm-
tossed coasts, Israel brought lines
of dejected human beings, pur-
sued and seeking respite, every-
where except in the safety of
your land, Abraham.
"New lands found new enemies
and new modes of persecution.
Under the guise of sanctity Is-
rael was impaled and garrotted,
buried at the stake with pitying
incantations. Cruel masters taught
their slaves that he was the cause
of their chains, that he brought
on conflagrations and Black
Deaths. Guilty barons pronounced
with authority that Israel with-
held the rains and caused the
placed the loss of his ship on the
unwanted presence on board of Is-
faminies. The faulty helmsman
rael's sons and they bore all
penalties and prescriptions. Take
Israel out, if he is willing before
he is exterminated. In a more
scientific age all weapons will be
used upon him with blind fury.

and Vandals will make Europe's

Herzl now saw Israel, in all his
historic tragedy, wending his
way to the land of Abraham.
Mournfully he greeted in his
mind and imagination of the re-
turning "tribes," the remnant of
a proud people. Israel rests his
hand forlorn on his breast, his
eyes to the ground, his face wan.
The nose, once a symbol of ma-
jesty and dignity, is now a grotes-
que object between his gaunt
cheeks. A broken staff assists
him in his halting and his slim
belongings are clutched tightly.
A shadow of Moses, Solomon and
David. Only a monosyllable,
framed in a sigh, escapes his lips.
He is weighted with sorrow but
he senses the hope of a return
a tortured body, a dejected mind
but still a triumphant Man. Herzl
speaks, almost aloud, his own
mind reflecting the same torture
and degradation. At least he hears
a faint voice, "Abraham, I have
tarried too long."

Germany's Jewry Today
(Continued from Page 54)
and international, to take care
of these people.
Aside from the DP's. there are
some German Jews who wish to
remain in Germany. We can say
that those who desired to emi-
grate have already done so. All
Jews born in Germany and Aus-
tria have had. since the beginning
of the American occupation of
Germany and Austria, an oppor-
tunity to emigrate to the United
States because the quota system
favored citizens born and residing
in Germany or Austria. It can
also be said that most of the Ger-
man Jews who desired to leave
for Israel have already gone. The
remaining German Jews have no
desire to move, for several rea-
sons.
First of all. the small number
of German Jews consists chiefly
of aged persons who feel unable
to earn their livelihood anywhere
else than in Germany. They be-
lieve that they will not be able
to learn another language or to
adapt themselves to new living
conditions, climate, etc. Although
their economic status in Germany
is far from satisfactory, they stay.
They gave up hope. They are
tired of endless wandering. They
wait for death.
Other German Jews, mostly the
younger ones, had an opportunity
to get jobs or go into business.
Although they do not consider
themselves nationalistic Germans
anymore, they prefer to stay.
Many of them have relatives
among the non-Jews in Germany:
many were saved due to the fact
that their partners in the marriage
were non-Jewish. Also there are
some who wish to remain with
their parents or with other Ger-
many-bound relatives whom they
finally succeeded in finding, some
after a long separation.
The economic condition of this
group is not too bad. They man-
age to earn their living. Many of
them are indifferent to Jewish
problems. It is true that their
children sometimes come back to
Jewish life, even though their
parents no longer have any con-
nections with it.
To recapitulate: it should be
said that economic conditions
except for the hardship cases
are generally satisfactory, and
Jews in Germanyif one consid-
ers life only from this viewpoint
will be able to get along.
*
But. economic conditions gen-
erally depend upon both social
relationships and political de-
velopments in a country. One of
the main problems, insofar as Jhe
future of the Jew is concerned,
will be their status in relation to
the non-Jewish population.
To date, almost no social rela-
tionship has been reestablished.
It was not too hard for Jews to
come into close contact with Ger-
mans at the end of the war. Al-
most every German in 1945 was
happy to have at least one Jew-
as a friend or as a personal con-
tact. Thus, he felt, he had a better
chance of not being suspected of
Nazi affiliations. However, most

of the Jews refused to have any
close contact with the Germans.
However, since denazification
broke down. Jews are not sought
after anymore by the Germans.
This seems to be the best proof
that most of the Germans did
not want the friendship of a par-
ticular Jew but were looking to
their personal advantage. The
very moment they felt they had
no further need for Jews they
again became indifferent to them
or reverted to the old anti-Sem-
ites they used to be.
Theie are some sincere rela-
tions between Germans and Jews
too. Many of the surviving Jews
were hidden or saved by non-
Jewish Germans during the Nazi
regime, and it is a matter of fair-
ness and appreciation to pay trib-
ute to these very few Germans.
Some recent events have led to
a better mutual understanding
between Germans and Jews:
There is. first of all, the continu-
ing emigration since the estab-
lishment of the Israeli state: and.
secondly, the success of the Is-
raeli Army in fighting the Arab
aggressors. One must know the
German psychology to under-
stand how irritating these events
were to the average German
mind.
The Germans believed, even
after the United Nations General
Assembly's partition decision, that
the Jews would never be success-
ful in creating a Jewish state. In
May. June and July of 1948. when
the"State of Israel was already es-
tablished, the Germans were
positive that the Israeli Army
would never be able to win out
against the armies of seven Arab
countries supported by the Brit-
ish. The final success by the Is-
raelis, however, changed the Ger-
man mind which had always be-
lieved that the Jews were not
good soldiers.
What lesson did the Jews learn
from this little incident?
The lesson was that the basis
for mutual understanding in the
future will De respect. Jews will
be respected not through what
they are doing or not doing in
Germany, but through the suc-
cess of the Israeli state.
The contribution of the Jews
during the centuries to European,
and particularly to German cul-
ture and civilization, does not
mean anvthing to the Germans.
There are very few who even
know the role of the Jews in his-
tory. The younger Germans, due
to Nazi propaganda and misedu-
cation know nothing about it. and
do not believe it even when they
are told about it. The anti-
Semitic poison is too strong in
the German mind, particularly in
that of the youngsters.
The reeducation program being
carried out by both the Americans
and British did not have the de-
sired result insofar as the be-
havior of the Germans towards
the Jews is concerned. It is ob-
vious one can not reeducate in
four years a people which has
been misled for twelve years.
There is. however, one thing
which should and could be done
in the future, if there is any in-
terest in having better mutual
understanding and approach. But
this has to be done by the Jews
themselves, and not by any other
people.
I mean the creation of an at-
mosphere of respect. It will de-
pend upon the Jewish behavior
in all kinds of situations.
The recognition of Israel by al-
most all the countries of the world
and its admission into the United
Nations probably did more in
fighting German anti-Semitism
than everything else ever did. So
did its success jn the military and
diplomatic fields.

PAGE SIXTY-THREE
New Year's Message From
Eliahu Elath, Ambassador Of Israel
The Jewish year that has just drawn to a close has been
marked by great and inspiring achievements in Israel at the
price of untold hardships, and gives promise that the New Year
which we usher in with solemnity and pious hope will prove
still another important land mark in the establishment of Israel
as a free and independent state.
The war that ended with such
brilliant victory for Israel's young
armed forces was followed by our
honest and sincere attempts to
everywhere, and the great com-
munity in the United States which
in the past has responded magni-
ficently to the call, must con-
erase forever the bitterness of.tinue to respond in the future
such conflicts existing between. until every single one of the im-
krael and her neighbors. The migrants is absorbed into Israel's
- economy.
Despite both external and in-
ternal difficulties, government in-
stitutions have consistently de-
veloped and there has been given
to the State of Israel, through its
elected and appointed servants,
the true stamp of democracy that
is the cherished heritage of the
Jewish people and the guiding
light of its leaders.
Grave political and economic
hardships face the young and
tiny State of Israel. The road
ahead is full of unrevealed pit-
falls. Huge sums of money for
capital investments to increase
productivity both industrially and
agriculturally are needed to ab-
sorb the new immigrants into
Israel's economy and develop to
the full all the resources of our
state. Steps have been taken to
build houses, to found new settle-
ments and to establish new fac-
tories. The people of Israel proud-
rmistice agreements showed our
earnest desire to bridge the gap
and come to closer relations with
the Arab states. Our continued ef-
forts to transform those armistice
agreements into permanent peace
treaties aim at the resumption
of normal relations with our
neighbors for the benefit of the
whole Middle East.
From the first moment of the
establishment of our state, the
doors of the country were opened
wide to admit scores of thousands
of Jews finally coming home. The
small trickle at the start grew into
a massive flood that astounded
the world, for this represented
one of the greatest mass migra-
tions in history. The doors today
still remain wide open to all Jews
who seek the peace and stability
of their own homeland. This
homecoming is not the sole re-
sponsibility of Jews in Israel; it
is the responsibility of Jews
The Year 5709 In Jewish History

camps which had been set up in
1945 after the war for those who
had survived the wholesale Ger-
man massacres. Nearly all of these
displaced persons went to Israel.
This great emigration of displaced
persons to Israel tended to great-
er normalization of the life of
those Jews who remained in
Western Europe.
In Eastern Europe, however,
Communist dominated govern-
ments curbed the desire of hun-
dreds of thousands of Jews to
settle in Israel, permitting only a
trickle of emigration. Eastern
Europe, too, saw during the year
the beginning of persecution of
Zionism as a "reactionary bour-
geois" ideal and the jailing of
Zionist leaders in Hungary. Jew-
ish cultural activities there, in-
cluding schools, were being great-
ly curtailed, if not altogether
abolished, by the governments of
Roumaniu and other countries
under the influence of Soviet
Russia.
As to Russia itself, the last
vestiges of Jewish cultureto say
nothing of Zionism, which had
been liquidated many years be-
foreseemed to be disappearing.
The Jewish Anti-Fascist Com-
mittee, which had been carrying
on cultural activities of a sort,
the one remaining Yiddish news-
paper Ainikeit," Yiddish schools,
all were closed down. Yiddish
writers of great reputation had
disappeared from the scene and
even their whereabouts were un-
known as the year drew to a
close.
French Jewry seemed to be
getting back on its feet again
during the past year and I-aris
was becoming more and more im-
portant as a center of European
Jewish culture. In England, de-
spite increased anti-Semitism and
economic adversity, Jews ap-
peared to be maintaining their
normal, well-organized commun-
al activities.
Ill
In the United States the five
million Jews, about half the Jew-
ish population of the world, con-
tinued to lead their normal, pros-
perous existence, undisturbed by
anti-Semitism, which according to
reports by responsible Jewish or-
ganizations showed less organ-
ized activity during the past year
than in previous ones.
The big event in organized
American Jewish life during 5709
was the controversy over the
leadership of the gigantic United
Jewish Appeal campaign, a con-
troversy which led to the resigna-
tion of two noted Zionist leaders.
Drs. Silver and Neumann, from
the Jewish Agency and the con-
tinuation of U.J.A. leadership by
Messrs. Morganthau and Montor
through the intervention of the
Jerusalem Jewish Agency. It was
a controversy which cost the
United Jewish Appeal many mil-
lions of dollars and did not re-
flect well on the ability of the
great American Jewish commun-
ity to bury personal and factional
differences for the sake of the
historic task of rebuilding the
Jewish nation in Israel.
The year saw the passing of
Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, for more
than a generation the ousstanding
voice of American Jewry, Zionist
pioneer and leader of the World
Jewish Congress. For the first
time since the war there was a
great increase in the building of
Jewish communal structures,
many of them badly needed. But
Jewish religious and cultural ac-
tivities did not show a propor-
tionate increase, either in quanti-
ty or quality, and philanthropic
activities, except for the decline
in U.J.A. contributions, remained
about the same as during the pre-
vious year. The general economic
recession in the U.S. toward the
end of the year held a threat,
though a silent one, that charit-
able contributions by American
Jews might be greatly curtailed.
whose rewards will only be ap-
ly bear a heavy burden today
parent in the distant future.
Politically much remains to be
done to define frontiers and in-
tegrate Jerusalem in the state's
living structure. As a loval and
constructive member of the
United Nations Israel will make
its impress on a troubled and un-
easy world. Democracy must find
its true expression in Israel, a
democracy that can contribute to
international cooperation and to
the well-being of all peoples and
all nations.
What is unfolding in Israel to-
day is a new social and national
creation, the building of a new
society, linked by inseparable ties
with the Jewish past and its
heritage. What began with the
Biluim 80 years ago and was
demonstrated by the founding of
Petal) Tiqvah, Gedera, Degania.
Nahalal and Negba is now taking
place with a hundredfold intensi-
fication within the framework of
an independent Jewish state.
Each new year adds much to that
process, a phenomenon of signi-
ficance not only for the Jewish
people but for humanity.
Let us hope that the New Year
5710 will play its part in this
tremendous undertaking in Is-
rael and that Jews everywhere
will continue to aid and support
the development of Israel.
I convey to the distinguished
Jewish community in the United
States my heartfelt congratula-
tions and best wishes for the
New Year.

. Miami Beach Has A Mikvah .
Editor's Note: Very few people know that there is in Miami
Beach a $35,000 structure which houses a Ritualariam, tradition-
ally known as a Mikvah. We have called upon Rabbi Moses Mes-
cheloff, who was instrumental in forming the Daughters of Israel,
the organization which built and maintains the Mikvah, to inform
our readers about the structure and its background. As a special
service we will send a copy of the pamphlet mentioned in the
article, "Jewish Family Life: The Duty of the Woman" by Rabbi
Sidney B. Honig, to anyone who writes for one. If you should like
to secure a copy, send your request to The Jewish Floridian,
P. O. Box 2973, Miami 18.
By RABBI MOSES MESCHELOFF
"Come right in," the caretaker says graciously.
We are at the entrance of a chaste modern structure at 151
Michigan Ave., Miami Beach. The wording above its doors has
intrigued us:
Daughters Of Israel
Ritualarium
Who are the "Daughters of Israel?" Obviously they con-
stitute a Jewish organization, but their function and activities are
not the subject of blatant publicity. .
"May we look around?" we ask meekly.
What is a "ritualarium?" It is a word strange even to the
educated Jew. There is nothing like finding out so we go in.
Before we know it we are in
the ante room, a large reception
room, still unfurnished. Its floor
is of terrazzo; its lighting modern;
its windows welcome a stream
of sunlight.
Beyond this room, up a few
steps and behind sliding doors, is
a waiting room and lounge. The
caretaker explains that this too
still lacks its necessary furnish-
ingsa few easy chairs, a vanity
table, an electric hair dryer, and
the like.
Past the waiting room is a
door leading to the caretaker's
quarters, a bedroom apartment in
the rear of the one story building.
On either side of the waiting
room are identical installations,
a large, tiled and sparkling bath
room with separate tub and stall
shower. Each bathroom leads into
a private ritualarium.
The ritualarium i* a ritual
pool (mikvah) in the center of
a bright, tastefully tiled room.
A number of slept lead to the
bottom of each pool. A railing
makes descent easy.
The caretaker informs us that
the pool is filled before and
emptied after each use. It is used
by only one individual at a time.
So that there be no waiting, two
completely independent ritual
pools have been constructed with-
in the building.
She shows us how simply and
quickly the pool is filled with cold
jnd hot water. A flick of a switch,
and an electric pump empties the
pool in a matter of minutes. She
lifts an aluminum floor panel and
shows how ingeniously the pool
is connected with the "Otzar," an
adjoining reservatory of rain
water, which makes the pool a
"kosher mikvah" in accordance
with Jewish tradition.
Before we leave she gives us
a copy of a pamphlet explaining
the traditional laws of Jewish
family purity, giving the
method of observing them
properly, and including the
regulations for the use of the
ritualarium. (See editor's note.)
We leave, but not before we
have expressed wonderment. "Is
this what a 'Mikvah' really is
like? We thought it was a relic
of the obsolete Dast, an unclean,
unattractive community bath
house. Why, this is so spotless
and appealing. We feel the holi-
ness of this place, as though it
were a House of G-d."
"It is more than that," the care-
taker concludes, "this brings G-d
and His blessing into your home.
It causes G-d's holy spirit to des-
cend upon Jewish children."
The local ritualarium is an evi-
dence of the progressiveness of
our community.
American Jewry is growing up
Half a century ago, Jewish reli-
gious interest limited itself to the
construction of synagogues, and
ish settlement.
From the turn of the century
American Jewry added to this,
philanthropic activity, and the
realization of the importance of
Jewish education. Religious
schools, Talmud Torahs, Yeshivas
and All Day schools have blos-
somed in every major Jewish
community. They are the guaran-
tees for the future of the Jewish
people.
Last in acceptance in these
United States was the realization
of the need for holiness within
the Jewish home. Historically, the
Jewish home has always been the
sanctuary which made every
phase of living holy. Holiest of
all was Jewish wedded life.
Kiddushin, sanctification. is
our word for marriage. It signi-
fies the sublimation of ideal
marriage, its separation from
the impure, from a degenera-
tion into mere animal lust grat-
ification.
Biblical law requires separation
between husband and wife during
the monthly periods, a separation
which ounsmodern scientists and
medical men have declared as
fundamentally sound and neces-
sary for physical and emotional
well being. Laws of abstinence
and periodic ritual purification
constantly renew the emotional
adjustments and temper the de-
sire so that married happiness re-
sults from a recurring series of |
courtships between husband and
wife.
Many are the doctors and
psychologists who are re-dis-
covering what was always
known to our people,the need
for "family purity,"Taharass
Hamishpocho. Where the great-
est mental and emotional havoc
occur, in the most intimate of
human relations, the laws of
"Niddah" and "Mikvah," ritual
uncleanness and the puriiica
and an ever-flowing fountain
of happiness.
American Jewry is only now
beginning to evaluate the need
for holiness in the life of each
individual. Jewish mass com-
munal activities, and even syna-
gogue worship are not enough.
Our present generation is seeine
die establishment of "Daughteio
of Israel" organizations througn-
out the country. Ritualariums
built in the most modern design,
and meeting the most stringent
hygienic and esthetic require-
ments, offer to their communi-
ties a promise of new levels of
happy wedded life.
The educational program in
this direction is but beginning.
With its acceptance will come
the fulfillment of the Jewish
mission, to be a "kingdom of
priests and a holy nation."
the observance of Jewish holy
days. The community synagogue lion at the ritualarium, stand as
was the sign of an existing Jew-1 a tower of spiritual strength
'1


Standing on the steps which lead from the bright, spacious,
terazzo-floored lobby to the Mikvah proper is the caretaker, who
is opening the convenient sliding doors. The lobby is still bare, but
plans are being made by the Daughters of Israel to furnish if in
the near future. The entire building is spotlessly clean and ajry,
consonant with the purpose for which it was designed.
A far cry from the mental picture of an unsanitary communal bath that the word "Mikvah"
usually evokes is the spotless private ritual pool shown here. The pale blue tile pool, entered by the
stem is filled with a specified combination of hot, cold and rain water, which is emptied after each
use by means of a small pump. There are two such installations in the Miami Beach Mikvah.
Simple, dignified and thoroughly unpretentious, the Daughters
of Israel Ritualarium (Mikvah). constructed in 1944 at a 0i
approximately $35,000, is at 151 Michigan Ave., Miami Beacn.ine
modern white structure contains a large lobby, pictured Wmn
on this page, a hallway, two gleaming tilt bath rooms, two private
ritual pools, also pictured on this page, and a caretaker's apart-
ment. The Daughters of Israel, who built and maintain the Rituala-
rium, was organised in 1941 and consists of approximately 150
members.

The history of Congregation Beth David. Miami's oldest, to a
large degree parallels the history of the Jewish people in this area.
The first Jewish public worship in the city took place on Yom
Kippur in 1896. Services were not resumed, however, until about
14 years later with barely a Minyan in attendance. In 1912 this
Minyan developed into a congregation which was then called
Bnei Zion. Services were conducted by the late Louis Fine. This
group engaged the first shoched in the area. Despite its limited
membership and lack of resources, the congregation managed
to remain active and formed the nucleus for the group known as
Beth David which was organized in 1917. At that time the wor-
shipers met at the northwest corner of N.E. 2nd Ave. and 81h St.
The present site at 135 N.W. 3rd Ave. was purchased in 1920 from
the First Christian Church. By 1925 the congregation had grown
to such proportions that a permanent rabbi and Hebrew teacher
were engaged and Miami's first Jewish religious school was es-
tablished. Rabbi Max Shapiro became spiritual leader of the group
in 1933.

Nine year* ago Congregation Beth El, then known as the Miami Jewish Orthodox Congregation,
moved into its present sanctuary at 500 S. W. 17th Ave., which is pictured here. The group was
organised in 1930 when Congregation Beth David became Conservative by a group of members
who wished to continue the practice of Orthodox ritual. Under the name of Congregation Shaarei
Zedek, the congregation conducted services in a rented hall. Three years later the organisation
purchased a church at 1545 S.W. 3rd St., which served as a house of worship until the congregation
moved into its present home. The synagogue, which is being painted white and rust to match the
Beth El Center, also pictured on page 70. seats 600 persons. Spiritual leader is Rabbi Murray Grauer.

H
little New England state was a
generation behind the other sec-
tions of the country in its mode
of life. It was a quiet, unhurried
life, undisturbed by the noise of
factory motors, unaffected by
booms and depressions, isolated
from America generally by a
topography, an economy and a
harsh winter climate that made
for the retention of old Yankee
customs and habits which other
places were even then beginning
to discard.
Into such a setting there had
come during the late Eighties a
group of Jews from a couple of
small villages in the Province of
Kovno, Lithuania. They were the
ordinary humble Jews of small-
town Eastern Europe, poor and
most of them not very learned in
things Jewish (some of the wom-
en-folks were completely illi-
terate), but all of them animated
by a strong passion for preserving
that Jewish life and those Jewish

Flagler-Granada I'ses Gables Club
On the firsl and third Thursday of every month the Coral
Gables Woman's Club, the trim coral rock-covered edifice pic-
tured here, serves as a meeting place for the Flagler-Granada
Jewish Center. The group, which was organized in April, 1948,
will hold High Holy Day services at the club. Facilities there
include a large kitchen, a glass enclosed porch and an air cooled
hall with a cathedral ceiling. The hall will seat 380 persons. Plans
are being formulated by the organization, which is now 72 families
strong, to build a house of worship and community hall at West
Flagler Street and 51st Place. Among the activities of the group are
men's and women's bowling leagues.
Israel And American Jewry
By DR. ABRAHAM A. NEUMAN
What is the impact of Israel on American Jewry. What is
the new and novel character which American Jewry will as-
sume spiritually and culturally by reason of the fact that in the
ancient Jewish homeland there was reborn a free, sovereign
Jewish state, the Republic of Israel.
For the present, the energies of. ,
American Jews in relation to Is- sP"tual bonds that hnk together
rael are directed toward one end:!men of common faith: emotional
to help the infant state establish I if that unite an historic PePle-
itself firmly, securelv. so that it 1 These are the strands of which
may hold an honorable place 'the uni,V of the Jewish people is
among the family of nations, and j woven. For two thousand years
to fulfill the prophetic promise of
gathering in the Jewish remnant,
the exiles from lands that ac-
knowledge neither pity nor jus-
tice to the Jew. The help is eco-
nomic and philanthropic. It will
be conceded by all right-thinking
people that the sacrifices which
American Jews have made in re-
cent years voluntarily, have no
parallel in the history of human
philanthropy. I cannot help feel-
ing that all Americans are in a
measure ennqbled by this sacri-
ficial outpouring of wealth and
spirit.
The philanthropic phase will
soon give way to a period of in-
tensive economic and techni-
logical rehabilitation. This phase,
too. will pass, and the time will
soon comeif it is not already at
handwhen American Jewry will
become subtly aware of a com-
pelling need to define its own
inner spiritual relation to Israel.
Needless to say. I am not think-
ing in political terms. The ques-
tion I raise is not the artificially
manufactured synthetic issue of
dual loyalty. There is no equivo-
cation on the part of American
Jewry as to where its political al-
legiance lies. American citizens
of whatever faith or ethnic group
can have but one political loyal-
ty. No group of American citizen-
ry is more loyally patriotic in
war and in peace than the Jews
of America.
But for all of us there is also a
domain of the spirit that trans-
cends national boundaries. We
owe a soul allegiance to ethical
and religious convictions that we
hold to be eternal. There are
this complex bond of many
strands united the Jewish com-
munities dispersed over the face
of the earth. The Jewish com-
munities of the world were thus
united not by a Sanhedrin, not by
any human agency but by fate
and faith. Within this spiritual
domain every community was
sovereign. For a thousand years,
no single Jewry exercised spirit-
ual authority over other Jewries.
This state of religious, cultural
equilibrium will now most de-
finitely be altered by the rise of
Israel.
For what is Israel. A political
state, to be sure. But it is far

more. It is a symbol of the re-
naissance of the creative Hebrew
genius. Within the boundaries of
Israel we are witnessing the be-
ginnings of a spiritual awakening.
How else shall we account for the
miraculous re-birth of the He
brew language; the founding o
numerous cultural institutions
with the Hebrew University as
the peak; the awakening of the
Hebrew muse in poetry, song and
dance: the prophetic zeal for so-
cial justice manifested in its or-
ganic structure; the religion of
Judaism emerging from the shell
of ritual and ceremonialism and
overflowing into the life of the
people. All signs point toward the
prophetic denouement of Jewish
history when the Torah shall go
forth from Zion and the word of
God from Jerusalem.
Israel will become the foun-
tainhead of Jewish inspiration the

From every part of the world
where Jewish communities live
in freedom, men will turn to Zion

This simple, highly functional structure at 25 Washington Ave. is the Educational Lyceum,
which serves as a meeting place for Workmen's Circle Branch No. 692 and its affiliated young Eng-
lish speaking branch. The lyceum was erected adjacent to a smaller building which had served as
headquarters for the groups for seven years prior to its construction. Since its completion in Novem-
ber of last year, the building has been the scene of numberous banquets, dances, plays and conceits.
Facilities include an auditorium with capacity of 600, kitchen, meeting rioms, offices. Branch 692 of
the Workmen's Circle was organised in October, 1926, and is the oldest unit of the organization in
the area.

values they had cherished in the
Old World.
All of them commenced to earn
their living in the way normal
for Jewish immigrants to Amer-
ica in those daysby peddling.
Most of them had already had
some peddling experience in the
nearby Adirondacks region of up-
state New York, but it was only
when they crossed Lake Cham-
plain and discovered Burlington.
Vermonfs largest town, that they
decided to concentrate their
homes in one place and form a
Jewish community in that area.
My mother tells me that when
she came to Burlington from
Europe in the early Nineties, a
few years before I was born, the
fifty Jewish families in the town
were like one familythere
existed a neighborliness. an in-
timacy, a passion for mutual aid
that were extraordinary. The
quarrelsover rabbis, over the
supervision of kashruth. over the
synagogues (we had three of them
for a long time)were to start
later when the Jewish commun-
ity had grown to such an exient
that its population was tripled.
But even then, despite all our
differences, we Burlington Jews
retained a feeling of close neigh-
borliness. of "landsmanshaft."
something we have to this very
day. something which probably
no other Jewish community in the
United States has ever possessed,
at least to such an extent.
During the early years of this
century, and almost up to 1930
when good roads brought the au-
tomobile belatedly into Vermont.
we were a Lithuanian-Jewish
village that happened to be
stranded in Vermont, which was
only superficially affected by
American ways, that basically
livedand maintained for a whole
generation its East-European
Jewish pattern of life. The "back-
ward"if you wish to call it so-
rural setting of Vermont made
it possible for us to maintain this
Litvishe klain-shtedtel. and per-
haps, too, the example of nearby
French Canada and the presence

borrowed ideas from it. Designed by Architect Norman Guler. the
colorful white and rust U-shaped building is a distinct departure
from the traditional religious edifice. Its six classrooms and 400-
seat auditorium, known as the Dora August Memorial HalL hare
cross ventilation and a maximum of windows for proper lighting.
The open patio, which has been named the Berkowitx Recreation
Patio, is private from the street and serves as an outdoor gather-
ing place for student services, plays and numerous social activities,
thus making it possible to enjoy to the fullest extent Florida out-
door living. The building is palpable proof that synagogues and
religious buildings may be just as dignified as, yet more flexible
than, antiquated historical design. The center is adjacent to the
synagogue. __________^^__

sixth anniversary on November 6 of this year with
a dinner at the Saxony Hotel, Miami Beach. It

a capital funds drive for the purchase of a new
site and the construction of larger quarters. The
home is now accommodating 38 aged men and
women, and facilities are taxed to the utmost. In
addition, there are 32 names on the waiting list
Some of these people applied for admission over

of a large piously-Catholic French
population in Burlington and
Northern Vermont generally,
helped in this regard. Anyway,
when an Orthodox rabbi, or a
meshulach, or a maggid would
come from New York or Boston
to Burlington during the early
1900's he would be amazed at the
bit of Europe he would find there
among the Jews. Because of this
distinctive Jewishness of ours
we even succeeded in luring such
a noted figure among American
Orthodox rabbis as Rabbi Israel
Rosenberg to be our spiritual
leader for a time.
The Burlington Jewish com-
munity which I remember as a
child and as a youth was unique
not in its Orthodoxyeven then
Sabbath observance was begin-
ning to be violatedbut rather in
the cultural pattern of the East-
European Jewish small town. Let
me illustrate:
My first Hebrew teacherand
I started studying Hebrew a yaer
before I entered public school
was the old-time "melamed."
There were such "melamdim" all
over the United States at that
time. But where except in Bur-
lington was the "melamed" known
all over "Jew Village" (that's how
our little ghetto in the northern
part of the town was called) by
the diminutive of "Shimmele" and
his wife, not by her own name,
but as "Shimmeliche"? Where
was another teacher nickname
"Der Himesh," because coming
from another part of Russia he
didn't pronounce it "humesh" as
all the Burlington Litvaks would,
and was known by that name to
such an extent that if you ask me
today what was his real name I
simply cannot tell you? What

Congregation Belh Jacob, the oldest synagogue on Miami Beach, was organized 21 years ago.
The original building at 311 Washington Ave., shown at left, was constructed largely through the
funds of tourists who had previously met in stores or on a hotel roof. Members of this group came
from most of the larger cities of the United States and Canada. During this period the Rev. Z. M"as-
Iiansky, who was one of the first board members of the organization, spoke from the pulpit. The
new synagogue, at right, was begun in 1936. It was completed in 1938 and has since been completely
air conditioned. Upon its completion, the older structure was converted into a religious school build-
ing. An annex was added in 1948 and the whole hall was air conditioned. The main synagogue has a
seating capacity of close to 1000. The school building contains classrooms, board of directors room,
oftices, 300-seat auditorium, which may be used for banquets, and complete modern kitchen facili-
ties. Rabbi Moses Mescheloff has been spiritual leader of the congregation since August 1937.

SOUND TE'KTAH!!
By DAVID SHOCHER
The shofar pierces the air with
its blasting te*ki'ah on Rosh
Hashona. In ancient days of Is-
rael, the shofar was also used to
gather Israel for combat during
times of war. So its use is fitting
for Rosh Hashona when the peop'e
gather before God in judgment.
On that day, we get our report
cards for the year. Our conduct
is judged. It is a busy day Up
There. The heavenly typewriters
going with the speed of light are
pounding out the records, and
then they are filed in a kind of
F.B.I, index.
But there is no finality yet. In
the ten days of repentance be-
tween Rosh Hashona and Yom
Kippur. the way is open for ap-
peals. So beat your breasts and
confess your sins. Say. "I have
done evil. I have falsified, cheat-
en. stolen, coveted."
Go to the waters and fulfill the
Tashlich ceremony. Cast your sins
into the waters. Scripture tells
us that if you cast your bread
into the waters, it will return.
Alas, sin has that propensity too.
but cast them nevertheless". Get
yourself clean. Get rid of the
mudbut not all the mud.
Remember the Chassidic storv
of the man who coming before
Heaven for judgment was con-
demned to perdition when his
Heavenly Counsel, searching the
records, finally found one good
deed to his credit. He. a rich man.
had helped pull a poor Jew and
his wagon out when they were
stuck in the mud.
The Court gave consideration
to this plea and ordered that the
poor man and the wagon be
brought up to be weighed. Thev
were weighed and then the evil
which this rich man had done

in his life was weighed too, and
it was found that the evil over-
weighed the good by a few
pounds.
"Sorry," said the Court, "the
man is condemned."

A Year Of Jewish Activities In Argentina
By DR. ANATOLIO LANDMAN
"bUENOS AIRES-The greater
t of Jewish activities in this
nirv in the vear 5709 were
Ccted "ward the. young State
Kiel which has increased the
nWstfee of the Argentine Jewish
Pmmunitv. comprising more than
S souls. Jewish organiza-
tions and individuals tried .to help
Jewish state by giving fi-
nancial aid. making political ef-
KfS with a view to establishing
Somatic relations between Ar-
Sna and Israel, and striving
for closer economic relations be-

^though almost half of Argen-
tina's Jewish families did not con-
fute anything to the drive,
more than 43,000,000 pesos were
reflected, marking a record in
the history of Argentine Jewry,
which a year before gave only
some 6.000.000 pesos to the J.N.F,
Palestine Foundation Fund and
^Th?'second United Drive was
launched in June, 1949, and de-
spite the fact that a Jewish Com-
munist minority initiated a sep-
arate campaign, it is hoped that
the results of the present action
will be equal to that of the first
drive
In the political field, the situa-
tion was not easy. The presence
of some 300,000 Arabs in this
country, the opposition of the in-
fluential Catholic clergy to the
Jewish state, and the fact that
Arab countries had voted for
Argentina's membership at the
Security Council, were powerful
odds. Nevertheless, last year in
Paris. Argentina voted in the Se-
curity Council for Israel's admis-
sion "in the U.N., and in March,
1949. Peron granted to the Jew-
ish state de jure recognition.
Now. Argentina has a Minister

Israel is represented in this coun-

well-informed circles that Ar-
gentina will be ready to offer its
good services toward the estab-
lishment of diplomatic relations
between Israel and the Vatican.
Finally, in the economic field,
we are only at the beginning of
reciprocal relations. Israel bought
in Argentina several thousand
tons of meat and other essential
products, but had to pay for them
in dollars. No Israeli goods were
purchased by Argentina. Both the
Argentine Israeli Economic Cor-
poration, and the Israeli Com-
mercial Mission in this country
are trying to establish barter rela-
tions so that Israel should be able
to pay with exports for its im-
ports.
Anti-Jewish agitation di-
minished, at least on the surface,
during the past year. For the
first time since the pro-Fascist
revolution of General Uriburu, in
1930, we had a year without any
terrorist attempts against Jewish
life and property. It is asserted
by followers of Peron, that after
the last such terrorist act, some
15 months ago, Peron called in
ten leaders of the anti-Semitic
Alianza Libertadora Nacionalists
and told them that they would be
held responsible for whatever
terrorist acts against Jews were
committed.
The Arabs, after the recent pro-
Israeli position of the govern-
ment, have greatly reduced their
anti-Jewish popaganda, while no
government official now dares to
make an open anti-Jewish state-
ment. Peron and the First Lady
attended last year two Jewish
meetingsthe banquet tendered
in their honor by the pro-Peron
O.I.A., and the farewell party in
honor of Minister to Tel Aviv,
Pablo Manguel. On several oc-
casions, the President of the Re-
public and Mrs. Peron repudiated
anti-Semitism.

provincial elections, the Peronist
ticket got a majority of votes in
many Jewish districts. It would
be a mistake to say that Jews
agree with the politics of the
Peronist Party. But they realize
that as long as Peron, who has
no racial bias, remains the strong
man of Argentina, their situation
will be fairly secure.
The new constitution contains
the statement that Argentina does
not recognize any racial differ-
ences. It also gives an opportun-
ity to foreigners to become citi-
zens after two-years residence, al-
though the executive laws which
will translate this stipulation into
practice, have not been pro-
mulgated.
The immigration of Jews to
Argentina remained an important
issue, although the O.I.A. ob-
tained 1,200 visas, and illegal im-
migrants could legalize their sit-
uation after being freed, accord-
ing to a personal order of Gen.
Peron. Nevertheless it is a fact
that the average Jew meets great
difficulties in trying to enter the
country, which has received many
thousands of Italian, Spanish,
Slav and even German immi-
grants. Many Jews think that this
is anti-Jewish discrimination.
Those who support the govern-
ment say that it is a consequence

mar School and became Bar Mitz-
vah until my graduation from
high school, it was easy to live in
this imaginative dream world
virtually all you had to do was to
mon\Wo\hYt7ixnentiivede Jith of their people, there was that
memories of the Civil War Our feeling for the unsolved mystery
school "Superintendent had b?en 'of life that alw.ays sets the .mag,
an officer in the Federal tav nation to work, the feeling that
andfafshaken hands with Lin- the pre-Industria ages possessed
coin. On Memorial Dav we school i | abundance. And so the maggid-
children would bring fl.nvers to dim who would often come to
the 'Evil Eye'." (But didn't
Goethe once say that "Supersti-
tion is the poetry of life?")
The specifically Jewish life of
the Burlington of those days was.
if anything, even more saturated
with poetry than was the non-
Jewish because it was more me-
diaeval. There was a simple, yet
deep, faith in the God of their
ancestors and the traditional ways
the graves of Civil war veterans.
We would sing Civil war songs
such as the poignant: "Under the
sod and the dew, Waiting the
Judgment Day, Under the laurel
the Blue. Under the willow the
Grey." The New England of
Emerson's and Louisa Alcott's
day persisted here. The nearby
farms and their human inhabit-
ants were constant mysteries to
a Jewish child, yet mysteries his
peddling father would constantly
penetrate and reveal to the house-
hold. Nature was close at hand
in the woods by the Winooski
riveralmost touching "Jew Vil-
lage"and in our study of botany
teacher would bring us school
children there to pick flowers.
Jews young and old would often
spend a Sabbath afternoon dur-
ing the summer in the woods.
Mother had a seemingly inex-
haustible repertory of Yiddish
songsand yes, they once cured
mv infant sister by "casting out
town and warm up a bitterly cold
Sabbath by their pictures of the
horrors of hell, delivered in a
sing-song fashion, or the awe that
permeated the community on the
eve of Yom Kippur when the
women's gallery in shul would be
bathed in tears, or the weeks-long
preparations for the great holiday
of Pesach, or the respect shown
to the Rov upon whose entry into
the synagogue everyone would
rise, or even the quarrels and the
women's petty gossipall stem-
med from an honest religiosity
which couldn't help but strongly
affect the life of an imaginative
lad during his most important
vears of spiritual growth.
What helped make our Burling-
ton Jewish community so differ-
ent, so much more unconsciously
Jewish, than other American Jew-
ish communities, even at that
time, was, I believe, due to our
closeness to nature and our isola-
tion from big-city influences. We
we repeddlers, our Burlington
Jews, but peddlers among the
farmers. Like the Jews of small
East-European towns we were
not entirely divorced from the
soil. Not only would we stay over
night on farms, and sometimes
all week, coming home only for
the Sabbath, but in town, too, we
kept cows, chickens and vegetable
gardens. It was this semi-rural
life, together with the other in-
fluences I've mentionedthe iso-
lation, the Old Yankee and the
French Canadian examplesthat
preserved our Eastern Jewish
cultural pattern. For in Europe,
too, the "klainshtedtl" constantly
fed and regenerated Jewish life
in the large towns. And so Burl-
ington Jewry, a Lithuanian-Jew-
ish village which flourished in
America, where the peace of the
Sabbath was felt in the very

The edifice now occupied by Temple Beth Sholom. Miami Beach's pioneer Liberal congregation,
was formerly an apartment and warehouse building, but since it was taken over by the religions
group in 1945. it has been undergoing a complete conversion. Located at 4144 Chase Ave.. Miami
Beach, the temple building contains on the first floor a 900-seat synagogue. 500-capacity banquet
hall, kitchen, offices, rabbi's study and spacious patio, seen at right of photo; on the second floor, 15
classrooms, school principal's office, school secretary's office, cantor's office, school social hall and
library, which has 1500 volumes. Prior to occupancy of the present quarters, the congregation, which
was organised in 1942. held services at 761 41st St. The temple now has a membership of 500 fam-
ilies, an enrollment of 350 in the religious school and 100 in the Hebrew school and a staff of ten
lull-time teachers.________________^_________________________
Jewish Village
In Vermont
(Continued from Page 74)
at a wedding people would dance
in the street, (I can even dimly
remember the ceremony of
"kaleh bazetsen" at a wedding),
where children spoke Yiddish as
freely and easily as in the old
country and played all the tradi-
tional holiday games, was some-
thing for even New York's East
Side to look up to in wonder.
I and my entire generation in
Burlington were brought up
simultaneously in two worlds
the East-European world of reli-
gious Jewish belief and folkways
and the world of American cul-
ture. Until recently when Jews
began to discard their specific
Jewish cultural heritage this was
the normal upbringing of the Jew
in the Diaspora. In some cases
this is said to have caused psy-
chological conflict in the hearts
of individual Jews. My Burling-
ton generation, as I observe it,
seems to be free of these psy-
chological conflicts. Though born
and reared in this country, it
takes its Jewishness naturally
and makes no effort to get out
of its own Jewish skin. We were
brought up in an old worldboth
Jewish and Gentileand have
been able to reconcile both parts
within ourselves because of cer-
tain spiritual values which are
common to both. We were not an
over-ambitious lot and we lacked
the big-city arrogance, and so
were able to establish a modus
vivendi with our non-too-aggres-
sive Vermont Gentile neighbors.
Burlington Jewry today has,
together with all Vermont, final-
ly joined the United States. How
this is changing its character need
not detain us here, for as it is
getting more Americanized and
shedding its East-European cul-
ture it is becoming just an aver-
age small American Jewish com-
munity whose Jewish future is
uncertain. However, even as late
as the Thirties, Ludwig Lewisohn,
the noted author who then lived
in Burlington, found, as he has
told me, vestiges of East-Euro-
pean Jewish life in Burlington
that he had found nowhere else
in his travels throughout the
length and breadth of the United
States. And only the other day,
Dr. Trude Weiss-Rosmarin, who
came to Burlington for a lecture,
mentioned to me that she had
found a healthier Jewish spirit
there than in other towns of sim-
ilar size she had visited.
The Burlington of a generation
ago contributed to American
Jewrybelieve it or nota New
York Yiddish journalist and a
Hebrew teacher for Israel! If that
Burlington with its vigorous Jew-
ish life can never again be re-
captured, I think we should at
least take to heart the lesson it
teaches those of us who would
like to see Jewish life in America
based on less shallow foundations
than it is today.
Even were that lesson followed,
we could not, of course, recreate
Lithuanian or Polish Ukrainian
Jewish villages in America, but
we might create a more human
physical setting in which a
thoroughly .Americanized Juda-
ism, too, would have a chance
of survival.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMRFP o, *+
Israelite Center To Build Sehool
This neat frame house with the striped shutters has been used
by the Israelite Center as a meeting place since the group was
organized two and a half years ago, but it won't be long before
the congregation starts construction of its own structure at 24th
Terr., just off 32nd Ave. Architect's plans have already been
drawn and work will begin shortly after the High Holy Days. A
Hebrew School building is scheduled to be erected first, then a
synagogue, beacuse need for the former is more urgent at the
present time.
Israel And American Jewry
(Continued from Page 68)
bulk of the Jewish population
will live as free citizens in other
lands beyond the borders of the
Holy Land.
In this new spiritual configura-
tion what will be the role of
American Judaism? What will be
its relation to the religious, cul-
tural center in Zion? Will Amer-
ican Jewry recognize and accept
the spiritual authority of the new
center in Zion? It is conceivable
that a Sanhedrin may be set up
in Jerusalem that shall exercise
binding religious authority over
the Jews of America? The answer
is. of course, clearly no. There is
no room for an authoritarian body
in modern Judsiam. Israel may
offer guidance, direction, inspira-
tion. It cannot and will not com-
mand.
How then will the status of
American Jewry be affected? Will
it rise or fall in the scale of
spiritual evaluation. Will it be-
come a spiritual dependancy of
Israel or will it be spurred on to
greater heights of cultural crea-
tively? Will it lean passively on
Israel or will it respond ener-
getically to the spiritual radia-
tion of Israel reborn?
These questions affect pro-
foundly the future planning of
Jewish activities in this country.
There are those who are ready to
write off American Judaism as
an essential element in the total-
ity of world Judaism. In their
eyes, the future of our faith and
culture is bound up wholly in the
life of the pioneers and settlers in
Israel. Only in the vivid atmos-
phere of a free independent Is-
rael can the Jewish genius be
re-awakened. Jewish civilization
is to them synonymous with life
in the Jewish state. Every other
manifestation of Jewish life
abroad is a diluted phenomena.
It is a compromise with the true
Hebrew spirit. It is therefore
secondary, transitory and will
fade away.
I most vigorously dissent from
this viewpoint. These views are
not only ethically unsound: they
falsify the entire course of Jew-
ish history. Whether these views
emanate from Israel or America
they must be vigorously repudi-
ated. Their acceptance would be
spiritually damaging to American
Jewry but even more disastrous
to the evolving nation in Israel.
Israel cannot live and thrive
spiritually in isolation. Its future
destiny, like its past, is unique.
Israel will make its peace with
its neighbors. Hebraism and
Arabism will cross-fertilize each
other, as they did in the past, to
mutual advantage and to the great
gain of the world's civilization.
But Israel cannot remain a mere
enclave among Middle East coun-
tries. Its spirit is universal.
When Judaism was most crea-
tive, as in the period of the
Second Commonwealth, there was
a mutual and reciprocal bond be-
tween Jerusalem and the Jewries
beyond in the lands of Egypt and
Babylon. These great Jewries who
in turn contributed first Hellinist-
ic Judaism and later the monu-
mental Babylonian Talmud not
only received the overflow of the
spirit of the Holy Land; they
were tributaries that fed the
springs and wells in Jerusalem.
Modern Israel too must main-
tain this reciprocal relation with
the outer world, and if it is to
fulfill the embodiment of its
hopes and dreams. Great as is the
need for the vitalizing spirit of
Israel, it is equally important for
Israel to draw nourishment from
the spiritual resources of Amer-
ica. The land of Israel is the na-
tive home of the prophetic spirit.
It is given to song, lore and
mysticism. It is attuned to the
spirit of the Infinite. It is the land
from which the voice of God
spoke to the heart of man.
Jewish culture has also been
enriched by outside influences.
Palestine yielded mysticism; the
Diaspora, rationalism, Jewish
philosophy, its ethical systems.
even the codification of the Law
of Judaism are products of coun-
tries other than Palestine. The
soul of Judaism stems from the
soil of the land; the mind is uni-
versal.
To maintain its universal out-
look, the spirit of Israel must be
invigorated by contact and com-
munion with the lands of the
Golah. Viewed from this light,
American Jewry has a vital role
to play in the future. American
Jewry is reared in the democratic
faith. It is the heir of universal
Judaism. Every segment of world
Jewry is represented in our pop-
ulation. American Judaism, fur-
thermore, combines the heritage
of Hellenism and the traditions
of rabbinism. Under the Hebraic
stimulus of the new Israel, we
can, if we will it, build a great
reservoir of faith and culture un-
parelleled in the history of our

West Miami Center Uses Ree Hall
. -....
A recreation hall, constructed for the inhabitants of a nearby
tourist camp, has served as a meeting place for the West Miami
Jewish Center since the enthusiastic little group was organized in
1948; however, the congregation, which adheres to the tenets of
Conservative Judaism, expects to build a house of worship and
community hall of its own in the near future. When 14 individuals
who had heeded Horace Greeley's advice to go west met a little
over a year ago to consider forming the center, they were in-
formed by the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, which had re-
cently conducted a survey, that they were on record 60 Jewish
families in the area. A house-to-house canvass of their own re-
vealed that there were almost 200, and it is estimated that there
are now over 300. Over 100 of these are affiliated with the con-
gregation, which has sponsored a number of highly successful
affairssocial, cultural and religions. The hall pictured above
at 1000 S.W. 67th Ave was transformed into what the members
describe as a "real synagogue" for last year's High Holy Day
services.
A Year Of Jewish Activities In Argentina
(Continued from Page 73)
of the world-wide policy of clos-
ing the doors to Jewish immi-
grants and a result of the fact
that Argentina wants land work-
ers, not intellectuals; people who
will not bring unrest in the trade
unions, and no workers who come
from groups with a Socialist
tradition. They assert that Jewish
immigrants simply do not fit into
the categories of desirable immi-
grants from the point of view of
the authorities.
Two positive factors in the in-
ternal Jewish scene must be
mentioned. Our community,
which was bitterly divided in
past year on several questions,
became more united. There is no
difference of opinion about ques-
tions of relief overseas; the old
conflict between J.D.C. and the
W.J.C. disappeared completely.
The DALA managed to assert its
authority as the central body in
inner Jewish matters, although
people who want to obtain some-
thing from the authorities go toi
the O.I.A.
Another positive point is the
increasing interest in Hebrew.
Many youngsters who want to go
to Israelsome 400 went last
year to fight with the Army
are studying the language of the
Bible.
On the other hand, general
Jewish education did not make
great progress. In Jewish thea-
tres and in other places of Jewish
culture, only a small percentage
of young people are to be found.
Jewish educators are striving for
a favorable change. Thus, it was
recognized that a new approach
is necessary toward those Jews
who are not acquainted with Jew-
ish cultural treasures and who
must be gradually educated.
Argentine Jewry, whose origins
coincide greatly with the JCA
colonization, is today an urban
population, with only some 6,000
Jewish colonists. It is becoming
more conscious of its duty to
contribute to the development of
Israel and to assure the continua-
tion of Jewish life in this country.
It had another year of tranquility
and of relative economic pros-
perity. Jewish leaders here hope
that the coming year will mark a
new, and this time more speedy,
progress, so that the Argentine
Jewish community may occupy
the place which is due it as one
of the few great "Yishuvim"
which survived German barbar-
ity.

Jews In Sports
By HASKELL COHEN
(Copyright. 1S49. Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, Inc.)
New York sport fans were all
a twitter the other day due to an
exclusive story Jimmy Powers.
Daily News sports editor, broke
in his widely read column. Pow-
ers insisted that Hank Greenberg
had purchased the Cleveland In-
dians. The story goes that the an-
nouncement will be made after
the current season eomes to a
close. Denials were quick in com-
ing from Bill Veeck. Indian prexy.
but the opinion grows in Ohio
that Veeck is through and that
Greenberg will take over.
Some claim that Hank bought
into the Indians with the under-
standing he would take over com-
pletely once he learned the va-
rious aspects involved in running
a major league club. He busied
himself with farm club duties,
scouting, inside office work, etc.
in his usual conscientious way
until he has become very pro-
ficient and is able to take over
the reins. The assumption holds
that his long-time friend Dave
Marx, large toy manufacturer, is
backing him in the venture.
Hank's father-in-law. Mr. Gim-
bel, is supposedly not connected
financially with the set-up.
Another rumor current along
Broadwav has Hank and Veeck
buying out the N. Y. Giants. This
is unlikely since Horace Stone-
ham owns 51 percent of the Giant
stock and is not interested in sell-
ing same. Rest assured the Pow-
ers' storv has a firm foundation
and you will be reading shortly
that Greenberg is the new presi-
dent of the Cleveland Indians.
Max Patkin, baseball's newest
clown, is still going strong on the
trail with over 62 appearances to
his credit this season. Max will
make himself a tidy sum and is
building up a terrific following
all over the country and Canada.
He recently drew 9.000 fans to a
game in Omaha. Nebraska and
over 6.000 fans paid their way
in to watch his antics in Hamil-

The people pictured above are enjoying the
facilities of the Miami Jewish Library, which is
housed in two rooms of the suite occupied by the
Bureau of Jewish Education on the third floor of
the Congress Building. The library was established
in 1944. when the bureau first opened permanent
offices. At that time Mrs. Pearl Krieger donated
5500 in memory of her departed husband. Moses
Krieger. Other contributions followed. Mrs. Matil-
da Ratner had the rooms completely shelved dur-
ing the war when lumber was rationed and labor
was almost unobtainable. Harry Simonhoff has
been chairman of the library since its inception.
The library now contains over 2000 volumes. For
lack of space the library committee has temporar-
ily abandoned plans for expansion; however, it is
the opinion of members that the library could be
built up to 10,000 volumes very easily. The col-
lection, the bulk of which is in English but which
also includes volumes in Hebrew and Yiddish,
contains history, fiction, biography, grammars,
encyclopaedias and other books of reference, dic-
tionaries, theology, Zionism, poetry, essay, ju-
venile stories, textbooks. During the period from
October, 1948, to May, 1949, 552 books were bor-
rowed by over 400 individuals. The library con-
tains a large quantity of audio-visual material
including film slides, projector, sound film, musi-
cal and educational recordings. All of these are
lent free of charge to organizations for meetings
and concerts. The library pursues a policy of free
circulation to students, educators and the general
public.

ish Community Center al 1415 Euclid Ave. Organized at a luncheon in Rafael s Resturant last Chanuka.
the Orthodox group has grown from a membership of 17 to over 250 and is now conducting a vigor-

appointed spiritual leeader of the congregation.________________________________________________
SOUND TE'KI'AH!!
(Continued from Page 72)
"But." insisted the Heavenly
Counsel, "this wagon has been
cleaned. This rich man pulled out
the poor man's wagon when its
wheels were all covered with
mud."
"You have a point there." said
the Court, ordering that the mud
be brought in and when it was
thrown on the scales, lo! the
evil was overweighed by an
ounce.
So the rich man was saved by
a little mud.
Sound Te'ki'ah for Rosh
Hashona. Let its shrill whistle go
through you. like a wind, for it
is a time of judgment.
But remember that this is no
mere unmerciful human judg-
ment. In this judgment, the peo-
ple too sit among the jurors as it
were, judging in their own cases.
Remember Reb Isaac Leib of
Berditchef. How he rose in the
synagogue on Rosh Hashona and
told God that if He did not give
Israel a good year. he. Reb Isaac
Leib would make "posul" (invali-
date) the phylacteries of God.
Yes. the Jew "assumed that God
praved even as men prayed and
God was no monarch who ruled
tyrannously or arbitrarily, that
God donned his phylacteries
every day even as every Jew did
and "in these phylacteries, it is
written that love is the highest
virtue.
Sound that Te'ki'ah for Rosh
Hashona! The shofar is a ram's
horn. The sages of Israel said tnat
the horn of the ram was selected
because it was a ram which ran
out and sacrificed itself as a sub-
stitute for the sacrifice of Isaac
in the Akeda. So in a hundreds
ways. Jewish thought chants the
high notes of humanity.
Israel does not want these hu-
man sacrifices. The substitution
of the ram for Isaac testified to
this, at a time when human sacri-
fices were the common thing
among men. Later the prophets
proclaimed that God was "tired"
of the sacrifices of animals. What
God wanted was an upright and
merciful heart, said Isaiah.
For that too we must sacrifice
in a different way. So sound
the Te'ki'ah and let it go through
youbut now it sounds no longer
terrifying but rather stirring
and invogorating. ____

Hebrew School Building Undergoing Improvements


In 1936 when Iho 28 men who were organiz-
ing a synagogue called Rabbi Simon April to
Miami to assume its spiritual leadership, it was
decided to call the organisation "Miami Hebrew
School and Junior Congregation." The reason for
selection of this name was that the organizers
wanted to dedicate it especially to the spiritual
needs of the youth of the community. Since that
time, however, like a boy emerging into manhood,
the congregation has outgrown the "Junior" and
the word has been unofficially dropped from the
titlenot because the group is not interested in
the spiritual needs of the young any longer. If
anything, it is more intensely so: but the omission
not only shortens the name, but more clearly in-
dicates thai the Orthodox synagogue serves the
entire Jewish communityboth young and old.
Begun in the summer of 1947, the synagogue build-
ing at 1101 S.W. 12th Ave., shown here, is still
undergoing improvements. This summer its five
classrooms were renovated, hardwood floors were
installed throughout the structure and an im-
ported marble Aron Kodesh, donated by Mrs.
Sarah Baile Stone in honor of her husband, Abra-
ham Isaac Stone, was installed. In addition to the
classrooms, the $85,000 multi-windowed edifice
contains a synagogue which seats approximately
600 persons, a balcony, kitchen facilities and rabbi's
study. Rabbi April has held the pulpit since 1936.

TEL AVIVThe chief problem facinq the non-Jewish pop-
ulation of Israel is economic. Their businesses disintegrated
completely during the war and probably will not be revived.
Arabs who used to work in government offices and other clerical
posts cannot be re-employed in
any operation which requires
the use of Hebrew, and are al-
most permanently out of work if
they do not deign to accept tem-
poral y jobs of one sort or an-
other. Small numbers of Arabs
continue to work in the Jewish
economy as port and agricultural
laborers and on army contracts
and the like. The ranks of the
jobless are swelled by villagers
who fled to cities during the
fighting and must now be re-
settled. Those villagers who re-
mained, however, and the Arabs
who found employment, are en-
joying unprecedented earnings,
and this fact is well publicized
beyond the borders of Israel by
the Palestine Arab press.
Arab labor exchanges have re-
cently been organized in more
than twenty localities and are
run in cooperation with the Jew-
ish exchanges. All Arab trade
unions participate in their ad-
ministration.
The Histadrut recently decided,
against the votes of its leftist
minorities, to continue the main-
tenance of a separate Arab or-
ganization and to postpone the
lifting of all barriers between
Jewish and Arab members. The
Histadrut has already held a sem-
inar for Arab labor organizers,
but the Communist-led Arab
Workers' Congress, which is sev-
eral years old and whose social
and cultural activities are among
the most important in the Arab
community, is still outside the
labor federation. Arab workers
are touchy on this subject, con-
sidering that the Histadrut Arab
department has granted them too
little real autonomy. Both they
and their Congress colleagues
urge their acceptance into His-
tadrut as the only way to ensure
them full equality in pay and
employment opportunities a
problem which has already caused
some friction among Jewish un-
employed. Meanwhile, the His-
tadrut has organized Arab co-
operatives of weavers, drivers,
farm laborers and even Bedouin
consumers.
Among the hardest hit are
wealthy Arab townsmen whose
property has not yet been released
by the custodian for absentees
property. This agency is now the
greatest holder of real estate in
Israel and is responsible for the
preservation of abandoned planta-
tions as well as the exploitation
of ownerless land and buildings.
Its jurisdiction which even covers
persons now resident in Israel
but who left their homes during
the fighting, is very great. The
courts are assisting local Arabs
in their struggle against this ad-
ministration, mainly in cases of
property jointly owned by resi-
dents and absentees and whose
return is requested by a resident.
In such a case, the Supreme Court
recently ordered the release of a
plant, holding that the custodian
cannot claim powers in the name

Freedom House Attracts All Ages
Originally taken over as a club house by the Miami Beach
Chapter of the American Veterans Committee on October. 1948,
Freedom House, 4323 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, has. as its pro-
gram developed and its activities increased, become a meeting
place for non-veterans as well as veterans. Its program includes
Monday night forums which cover a wide range of social, educa-
tional and cultural subjects. Friday night symphony hour and the
Saturday night "Poor Man's Night Club," which meets on the
breeze-swept patio overlooking the ocean. The program attracts
people of all agesteen agers and their grandmas. The lree-
tlanked house, pictured here, contains a large clubroom, utility
space, foyer and bar, offices, patio and pool and beach facilities
for eight months of the year. Some idea of the spirit that pervades
the house is expressed in a statement by one of its habitues, to wit:
"We don't have much money but we have lots of fun."
The Year In Washington
By MILTON FRIEDMAN
ffopyright, .!'., J#\vl8h Telegraphic Agency, Inc.)
WASHINGTONIsraelis and Jews everywhere looked to
Washington this year as it became increasingly apparent that
American reactions were inseparably linked to the survival and
growth of the infant State of Israel.
Rosh Hashona came last year at a time when the assassina-
tion of Count Folke Bernadotte in
Jerusalem caused a sharp but
temporary set-back to Israel in
Washington. Bernadotte's final
report was released on September
18. one day after the assassina-
tion: public opinion was strong.
Within three days Secretary of
Slate George C Marshall "gave
blanket approval of the new ter-
ritorial partition, essentially the
same as Bernadotte's preliminary
proposal of the preceding July.
Sec. Marshall's hasty public ac-
ceptance, without wide discussion
seemed to be another major
switch in American policy on Pal-
estine. It was thought in Wash-
ington that the approval of the
Secretary of State, then in Paris,
did not refect the feelings of
President Truman.
American Zionists were galvan-
ized into action against the parti-
tion idea. Maps of Palestine ap- REV. I. FABER
peared in Washington news- PROMINENT MOHL
f.?e? a1d th,roug*ut the coun- Performs brism according to the
try. graphically illustrating how \
would not be forced to surrender
territory included in the original
award without its explicit agree-
ment. The final policy decision
was taken out of the hands of
Sec. Marsh-'.'..
The reluctance with which the
State Department accepted the
President's new policy was ob-
served in Washington. Evidence
of the department's reaction was
seen in its failure to print in the
official weekly department Bulle-
tin the President's promise of
de jure recognition to Israel after
the Israeli elections. The Bulletin
had previously carried every im-
portant pronouncement on the
Near East situation. Some ob-
servers thought that permanent
State Department people laughed
at Truman, thinking his words
meant nothing because of the
certainty of a Dewey victory.
A scheme for reducing the
State of Israel, sponsored by the
State Department and British
Foreign Office failed at the Pans
meeting of the General Assembly,
which Washington watched care-
fullv. Herbert V. Evatt of Aus-
tralia voiced effective opposition.
Even the Arab League, which the
scheme was designated to ap-
pease, were displeased and re-
jected it.
Prof. Philip C. Jessup. appear-
ing before the General Assembly
on November 20. said that it was
considered preferable that the
United Nations refrain from fix-
ing specific boundaries for the
two parts of Palestine. This
marked the abandonment of the
Marshall position of September
which supported the Bernadotte
plan. A formal statement followed
the president's pre-election prom-
ise on Israeli territory, although
the expression of the American
delegation to the General Assem-
blv somewhat amended Truman's
pledge. "If Israel desires addi-
tions, it would be necessary for
Israel to offer an appropriate ex-
change through negotiations."
The Israeli application for
United Nations membership re-
ceived the support of Prof. Jessup
on December 2. Jessup said, "No
one doubts that Israel has a gov-
ernment. I think the world has
been particularly impressed with
the way in which the people of
Israel have organized their gov-
ernment and have established a
firm system of administration
and of lawmaking under the most
difficult conditions The
United States has watched with
sympathy and interest the birth
of the State of Israel and the de-
velopment of its political and so-
cial institutions."
The year 1949 brought with it
a crisis in its early days when
alert Israeli fliers shot down five
Royal Air Force planes over Is-
raeli territory. A State Depart-
ment statement said the U.S. was
confident that the "regrettable
incident" would remain only an
incident and that it would not
interfere with the truce negotia-
tions then in progress on Rhodes.

It was revealed that Secretary
of State Dean Acheson was in
close touch with British Am-
bassador Sir Oliver Franks on the
subsequent crisis which arose
when Israeli troops occupied
Aqaba a Red Sea port. A State
Department spokesman said the
U.S. was "informed but not con-
sulted" about British troop move-
ments in the Palestine area aris-
ing from the Aqaba controversy.
Israeli Ambassador Eliahu
Elath made a number of tense
visits to government officials but
it was not until late in March
that the anxiety subsided. The
Israelis had made their position
unmistakably clear.
Early in 1949 President Truman

given to Israel. Eliahu Elath was

only a modest legation, the U.S.
wanted Israel to have a full em-

The store on the right, located at 13630 West Dixie Highway.
North Miami, is serving as the house of worship for the newly
organized North Dade Jewish Center. Organised in June of this
year to meet the needs of the growing Jewish population in the
North Miami. Miami Shores, Biscayne Park area, the Conservative
congregation received its charter the first of this month. High Holy
Day services have been scheduled for the North Dade synagogue
and Rabbi Malcolm M. Sparer has been engaged to officiate. The
center has a capacity of 500.
The Year In Washington
(Continued from Page 82)
United States to develop Israeli
agriculture, housing, transporta-
tion, telecommunications, and
other facets of progress. The first
credit, in the amount of $35,000,-
000, was announced on January
19 to pay for urgently-needed
tractors and agricultural equip-
ment. The loan will mature in
fifteen years and is at the rate of
threc-anda-a-half per cent inter-
est per annum.
Post-election speculaton of
Zionist leaders held that Tru-
man's election victory was in a
large sense an Israeli victory. It
was said that Truman reflected
the common sense sympathy of
the average American for the Is-
raeli cause.
Israel gained further when it
was voted to full membership in
the International Wheat Confer-
ence at a meeting in Washington
on March 17. This represented
the first international body to
grant membership to the Jewish
state. Membership permitted Is-
rael to buy sorely-needed wheat
for much less than she had been
paying on the open market.
Wheat heads the list of crucial
food shortages in Israel. The only
votes opposing Israel were those
of Egypt, Lebanon, and Saudi
Arabia.
The Arab refugee problem
reared its head in Washington
during the winter and Congress
voted $16,000,000 for Arab refu-
gees.
Israeli Ambassador Elath said
that he was glad Israel was able
to win a military victory without
the help of American or Russian
troops.
The Jews of Israel will provide
for her defense but the Jews out-
side, particularly American Jews,
must foot the bill of immigration,
Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe
Sharett told 1,200 United Jewish
Appeal leaders at a meeting in
Washington in March. He said.

"If they (American Jews) share
in the glory of Israel, they must
share in its travail." The 1949
UJA campaign for $250,000,000
was launched in Washington with
impressive speeches by Mr. Sha-
rett and other Israeli leaders.
Henry Morgenthau, Jr., UJA
general chairman, commenting on
cash gifts of $27,000,000, declared,
"I am happy to say that this
extraordinary action on the part
of the Jewish communities has
averted a serious crisis in the re-
settlement of homeless Jews in
Israel."
Prime Minister David Ben
Gurion notified UJA leaders that
a regime of strict austerity would
b" introduced in Israel to make
possible large scale immigration
and industrial and agricultural
expansion. Dr. Nahum Goldmann.
chairman of the American Section
of the Jewish Agency for Pales-
tine, said a quarter million im-
migrants in 1949 will do more to
insure the security of Israel than
a large army.
A few days later, on April 1,
Israel's arch-enemy, British For-
eign Minister Ernest Bevin ar-
rived in Washington and asked
that the Arab point of view not
be overlooked in Palestine.
Rep. Arthur G. Klein, of New
York, requested and received
from the House of Representa-
tives a two-hour special order
marking the first anniversary of
Israel on May 5. Congressmen,
both Christian and Jewish, hailed
Israel. More than 800 guests,
mostly members of Congress and
diplomats, attended Israel's first
"black tie" diplomatic reception
in the United States, tendered by
Ambassudor and Mrs. Elath in
observance of the anniversary.
On May 11 Ambassador Elath
received news of Israeli accept-
ance to full membership in the
United Nations while he was de-
livering an address at Constitu-
tion Hall. He pledged full co-
operation of Israel to world
peace. At the same meeting Vice
President Alben W. Barkley ex-
pressed confidence that Israel can
and will become the leader of
nations in its part of the world.
A bill which would provide for
a joint Congressional and tech-
nical committee to go to Israel to
investigate possibilities under
President Truman's "Point Four"
program was introduced in the

Jewish Quiz Box
. By MILTON FRIEDMAN
(Copyright. i(M9. Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, Inc.)
WASHINGTON The Arabs
have cast an evil eye on the
United Jewish Appeal, wistfully
predicting that "Israel would
perish in four weeks at the most
if this grant were stopped."
Hazim Nuseibeh. an Arab radio
propagandist, should be among
the UJA's most effective speak-
ers. A recent talk by Hazim over
the Jordan-controlled Jerusalem
radio, has attracted attention in
Washington.
According to Hazim. "Israel
has been able to remain in exist-
ence due to the 200 million dollars
showered on it yearly by Ameri-
can Jewish organizations. This
fact proves that Israel lives on
American charity and that the
just solution of the Palestine
problem is in the hands of the
American government. The Jews
cannot rebel against the United
States because if they did the
funds collected for them would be
frozen and their transfer pro-
hibited. If that happens Israel
would either surrender or perish."
There have been many recent
complaints from Jewish quarters
about State Department pressure
on Israel. Hazim"s analysis of Is-
rael-American relations is child-
:>h but reflects unsubtle type of
propaganda the Arabs are aiming
at President Truman and the State
Department. He reveals that
"American pressure on the Jews
is greatly exaggerated. If the
American government earnestly
exerted pressure on the Jews they
would have no alternative but to
yield."
Hazim takes great comfort in
the fact that immigration to Is-
rael :s dropping off because of
Israel's housing shortage and eco-
n mic difficulties. Israel now has
850.000 Jews, he says, "and we
do not think that their number
will exceed a million for many-
years to come." (It is expected
that the figure of 1.000.000 will
be reached in the next few-
months if UJA support con-
tinues.)
Blaming Israel for being "so
obstinate at Lausanne" about the
return of Arab refugees and the
surrender of "areas taken by force
:n excess of what was allocated
to them by the United Nations"
Hazim questions Israel's presump-
tu m attitude (which seems to
baffle him). He concedes Israel
temporary military success but
brags that "the Arabs have real-
ized their defects and are ad-
van r.g toward unity." The con-
tinued existence of Israel depends
on Arab consent and. he says, the
Jews had better watch their step
,-.s the Arab Leaguers are getting
out their brass knuckles for the
second round.
Arab problems are mere trifles
compared to the catastrophe
which has befallen victorious Is-
rael. Hazim reports. All good
Arabs "should rejoice that their
enemies suffer." Hazim gloats
that Jewish reinforcements from
the DP camps are now exhausted
and the former DP's are beset by
new hardships in Israel. He con-
fides that Israel "had an adverse
trade balance of 50 million pounds
last year. Such a huge deficit for
such" a small population cannot be
borne for long."
Israel is making its last feeble
gasps for survival, trying to rally
the Diaspora to its aid. according
to the Arab sage. He blames Is-
rael for attempting to "uproot"
established Jewish residents from
Africa. Europe, and even the
United States. He adds that de-
spite the "extent of their reli-
gious zeal" these Jews have too
much sense to obey the Lorelei of
the Knesset.
Hazim may be a demon at tne
old Arab game of chess but he's
certainly no poker player. He
tipped his hand in this broadcast,
almost televising the Arabs'
greatest fear: the continued suc-
cess of the UJA.

Beth Tfilah Activity Solely Religious
The distinction of being the first completely air-conditioned
synagogue in the Greater Miami area went to Beth Tfilah at 935
Euclid Ave.. Miami Beach, which is pictured above. Designed by
Architect Norman Giller. the structure is characterixed by its
simple dignity, its clean modern line. The building contains a 700-
seat synagogue, meeting room, rabbi's study, offices, kitchen facili-
ties and banquet hall. Founded in 1942 as an Orthodox congrega-
tion, the Beth Tfilah congregants first held services at 9th St. and
Michigan Ave. Later the group moved to 6th St. and Euclid Ave.
At that time the site of its present building was purchased. In 1947
Rabbi Joseph E. Rackovsky became spiritual leader of the con-
gregation, and under his leadership, the present house of worship
was completedin time for High Holy Days of that year. Activi-
ties of the group are strictly in the religious sphere and include
study groups in Mishnas, Ethics, Laws and Customs and the Bible.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER n

New Same: Miami Jewish Center
Activities at the Miami Jewish Community Center, until last
month known officially as the Young Men's and Young Women's
Hebrew Association of Greater Miami and unofficially as the
Miami Y. are as varied as the age groups that congregate there
from two-and-a-half-year-old tots to people over 50. These activities
range from dramatics and dance classes to bridge tournaments
and calisthenics for overweight women. The center was organized
in 1933 as the Hebrew Athletic Club with a membership of 13
young men whose primary objective was to sponsor a sports pro-
gram for the Jewish men in the community. In 1937 this group was
incorporated as the Young Men's Hebrew Association of Greater
Miami. A short time thereafter a woman's unit was formed; how;-
ever, it was not until 1944 that the charter and constitution of both
groups were amended and the Young Men's and Young Women's
Hebrew Association of Greater Miami was formed. Thereafter
women were permitted to hold office. Last month when the organ-
isation became the Miami Jewish Community Center, its objectives
were redefined to read: "To develop a program of informal educa-
tion, recreation and health education which should devote primary
attention to the spiritual-cultural factors which constitute the
Jewish way of life. To develop a comprehensive program re-
sponsive o the interest of people of all ages. Nothing of human
concern is alien to the center ." Located at 450 S.W. 16th Ave~
the new center building pictured abovea sleekly modern two-
story structure with basement shower-and-locker areawas com-
pleted in 1948. It contains a gymnasium, auditorium and stage,
lounge, library, camera room, patio, kitchen, dressing rooms,
offices, health club and the aforementioned showers and lockers.
A smaller building across the street houses the nursery, game
room, club rooms, outdoor athletic dub. The center has a mem-
bership of over 2200 people. Its budget for the year 1949 is S97.000,
of which approximately (35,000 is allocated by the Greater Miami
Jewish Federation. Maurice Grossman is executive director.
President Weizmann Sends New Year's
Greetings To Jews Throughout World
TEL AVIV. (JTAPresident Chain- Weizmann of Israel issued
the following New Year's message thrcugh the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency:
"I send greetings from the State of Israel to the Jewish people
the world over on the occasion or Rosh Hashona. which we are cele-
brating for the second time as a free people in our own land.
"Our people have known great suffering; with suffering was
the state established. From sacrifice and anguish was freedom
fashioned and sovereignty secured. Today in peace we seek only to
pursue the constructive tasks of building the country, developing
the resources of the homeland that our people may enjoy a full life
and walk in dignity.
"Our danger is not yet over. But w:th:ut an hour's interruption
we follow Zion's purposewelcoming back our brethren from over-
seas, reviving both the state and the nation. We fervently hope we
will be blessed in the New Year with the means of setting the new
state en the path of economic, social and cultural fulfillment that
Israel may serve as a source of strength and inspiration to all Jews
"May our people in all their dispersion join to achieve this holy
purpose: may our toil be blessed. Heartfelt greetings to every Jew
wherever he mav be."
The Year In
Washington
(Continued from Page 83)
House and Senate The measure,
which follows the idea of lending
American technical skill to un-
derdeveloped areas, would pro-
vide preliminary survey work on
such projects as the Jordan Valley
Authority plan of Dr. Walter C.
Lowdermilk.
American Israeli relations
reached a strained status in mid-
June when the Lausanne confer-
ence of the United Nations Pales-
tine Conciliation Commission be-
came stalemated The State De-
partment adopted the view that
it was up to Israel to break the
deadlock bv agreeing to Arab de-
mands that Arab refugees be re-
admitted. Israeli Foreign Minister
Sharett complained bitterly be-
fore the Knesset of American be-
hind-the-scenes pressure.
Mark Ethridge. American re-
presentative on the Conciliation
Commission, resigned and re-
turned to Washington where he
' reported to President Truman and
the State Department. A crisis
brewed. Aubrey S. Eban. Israeli
delegate to the United Nations,
rushed to Washington from Lake
Success. Eban. Ethridge. and Act-
ing Secretary of State James E.
Webb talked' for over two hours.
Asked to comment. Ethridge
passed the brunt of responsibility
to Israel. He said: "I hope Eban
rushed out and advised his gov-
ernment to come up with new-
proposals."
It was decided that the Laus-
anne talks be recessed, and that,
if agreement is not reached, a
: full report be made to the Gen-
eral Assembly in September.
The United States and Israel
seemed to be at odds on three
issues They were the Arab refu-
gee question, the future of Jeru-
salem, and the principle of com-
pensation for territory occupied
bv Israel beyond the borders laid
down in the United Nations parti-
tion plan.
As the year 5709 drew to a close
the world knew that Israel had
arrived as a nation among na-
tions. The eyes of the Jewish
people remained focused on
Washington which helped give

This Office Directs Affairs Of Men's, Women's And Youth's BB Units
Pictured above (left) it the B'nai B'rith Council office at 330
Seybold Building. From this office the activities of seven local men's
organisations, 11 women's groups and 8 youth chapters, with a total
membership of 2500, are coordinated. The office also services Holly-
wood and Ft. Lauderdale lodges. At the present time the office staff
is formulating plans for a nation-wide membership campaign to be
launched October 13. Sholem Lodge, founded in 1939, is the oldest
B'nai B'rith unit in the area. Charles R. Jacobson is executive secre-
tary of the council.
Sharing quarters with the B'nai B'rith Council is the Florida
Regional office of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. Shown
in the photograph at right are members of the ADL staff. Estab-
lished in 1941 in response to public demand, the office services the
entire state. Since its organization here, the ADL has conducted a
vigorous campaign to promote better human relations and combat
bigotry and hatred. During the war the league fought subversive
Hitlerite groups which were flourishing in this area. Since the close
of the war the office has led a campaign for anti-mask and anti-
cross-burning ordinances. This campaign culminated in the passage
of such legislation in Miami, Miami Beach, South Miami. Coral
Gables, Miami Shores and five or six other communities throughout
the state. The ADL also worked' to eliminate discriminatory adver-
tising in Miami Beach hotels and apartments. Through the league's
efforts a ban against discriminatory signs was enacted in Miami
Beach in June of this year. Gilbert Balkin is director of the office
and Leonard L. Abess is chairman of the advisory board.
a
Between You and Me9'
By BORIS SMOLAR
(Copyright, 1948, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.)
L.'SHAN AH TOVAH:
The new Jewish year starts with new activities of the re-
organized American Zionist Council to check the renewed anti-
Israel sentiments in Washington Latest developments seem to
indicate that with regard to the territorial aspects of the Palestine
issue, the State Department advances more anti-Israel demands
than does Britain Indicative of the sentiments in the State De-
partment is perhaps the fact that for the first time in many years the
Secretary of State this year did not issue any Rosh Hashona message
of greetings to American Jews ... It is obvious that in breaking the
tradition carried on by previous Secretaries of State, Secretary Dean
Acheson was afraid that anything he would say in a Rosh Hahsona
message might antagonize the Arabs The official explanation
given by Secretary Acheson was that because of the overwhelming
number of requests for statements which he receives, he has had
to establish a policy of declining these requests ... He, therefore,
felt that if he were to issue a Rosh Hashona message of greetings,
his action could provoke resentment on the part of those groups
whose requests for statements he has turned down .
U.N. MOODS:
The U.N. General Assembly, which opened its session a few
days before Rosh Hashona, will apparently not take up the issue of
the staus of Jerusalem before November This is the prevailing
feeling among Israel delegates at Lake Success The issue will
precipitate a big fight at the Assembly since Israel is determined to
have the Jewish section of Jerusalem become an integral part of the
Jewish state. The fight will center around discussions of the U.N.
Conciliation Commission plan to place Jerusalem under the super-
vision of a U.N. High Commissioner ... In the meantime Paul A.
Porter, American member of the Conciliation Commission, is busy
preparing an anti-Isrel atmosphere ... In "off the record" talks
he builds up a feeling that Israel is not cooperating as much as the
Arabs ... In one of these talks he went so far as to state that "the
leaders of Israel have become devoted disciples of the policy of fait
accompli" ... He keeps on saying that all "objective" American
observers agree that the onus is on Israel for blocking the progress
at the Lausanne peace talks And he is spreading the allegation
that Arabs left their homes in Palestine because of atrocities by
Israel troops All this does not, of course, add to the prestige of
the American representation on the Conciliation Commission .
However, it shows how the wind blows among American officials
dealing with the Palestine issue at the United Nations.

City Hall Used By Hialeah-Miami .Springs Center
The attractive Iree-flanked Mediterranean
style building shown here is the Hialeah City HalL
which until recently served as a meeting place
for the highly energetic Hialeah-Miami Springs
Jewish Community Center. Since this picture was
taken, however, the group has switched its head-
quarters to the Cama Building at Hialeah Drive
and Lindsey Court, Hialeah. A campaign is now
being conducted by the center to raise funds for
purchasing a suitable site and constructing a build-
ing of its own. Already a profitable dance and
games party have been given and a bazaar is being
planned for November. The idea for a center was
conceived in March of this year at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Phil Lyons. Five persons were present
at the gathering. Forty persons attended the or-
ganisational meeting. The organization received
its charier May 4, 1948, and since that time has
been growing rapidly. Already over 70 families are
affiliated. Most of the members moved to the
Hialeah-Miami Springs area within the last few
years; however, there are "among the ranks sev-
eral pioneers.

Government health services
among the Arabs are again in
operation, and most schools are
already working smoothly in spite i
of the havoc wrought by the war.
With the passing of a bill for com-
pulsory free education in the first
six grades many Arab children
particularly girls and Bedouins
will for the first time see the
inside of a school. Full imple-
mentation of the program will
take some time because of the
shortage of teachers and equip-
ment.
The British built up an orderly
though somewhat primitive sys-
tem of Arab public education, al-
most free of charge to parents
and local authorities and sup-
ported only by the central gov-
ernment. The government system
includes many self-sacrificing
teachers, both men and women,
devoted to helping their people
out of the mire or unhygienic,
superstition-ridden living condi-
tions. Jewish personnel are now
trying to build up a new atmos-
phere. A summer seminar of
more than 100 Jewish and Arab
teachers was recently held in
Nazareth. Arab staff salaries have
not yet been raised to the same
level as those of their Jewish
colleagues.

ri1 .nv SEPTEMBER 23, 1949 >kislfkrH*>, PAGE EIGHTY-ONE Hebrew School Building Undergoing Improvements In 1936 when Iho 28 men who were organizing a synagogue called Rabbi Simon April to Miami to assume its spiritual leadership, it was decided to call the organisation "Miami Hebrew School and Junior Congregation." The reason for selection of this name was that the organizers wanted to dedicate it especially to the spiritual needs of the youth of the community. Since that time, however, like a boy emerging into manhood, the congregation has outgrown the "Junior" and the word has been unofficially dropped from the title—not because the group is not interested in the spiritual needs of the young any longer. If anything, it is more intensely so: but the omission not only shortens the name, but more clearly indicates thai the Orthodox synagogue serves the entire Jewish community—both young and old. Begun in the summer of 1947, the synagogue building at 1101 S.W. 12th Ave., shown here, is still undergoing improvements. This summer its five classrooms were renovated, hardwood floors were installed throughout the structure and an imported marble Aron Kodesh, donated by Mrs. Sarah Baile Stone in honor of her husband, Abraham Isaac Stone, was installed. In addition to the classrooms, the $85,000 multi-windowed edifice contains a synagogue which seats approximately 600 persons, a balcony, kitchen facilities and rabbi's study. Rabbi April has held the pulpit since 1936. Israeli Newsletter By ADA OREN (Copyright, 1949, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.) TEL AVIV—The chief problem facinq the non-Jewish population of Israel is economic. Their businesses disintegrated completely during the war and probably will not be revived. Arabs who used to work in government offices and other clerical posts cannot be re-employed in any operation which requires the use of Hebrew, and are almost permanently out of work if they do not deign to accept temporal y jobs of one sort or another. Small numbers of Arabs continue to work in the Jewish economy as port and agricultural laborers and on army contracts and the like. The ranks of the jobless are swelled by villagers who fled to cities during the fighting and must now be resettled. Those villagers who remained, however, and the Arabs who found employment, are enjoying unprecedented earnings, and this fact is well publicized beyond the borders of Israel by the Palestine Arab press. Arab labor exchanges have recently been organized in more than twenty localities and are run in cooperation with the Jewish exchanges. All Arab trade unions participate in their administration. The Histadrut recently decided, against the votes of its leftist minorities, to continue the maintenance of a separate Arab organization and to postpone the lifting of all barriers between Jewish and Arab members. The Histadrut has already held a seminar for Arab labor organizers, but the Communist-led Arab Workers' Congress, which is several years old and whose social and cultural activities are among the most important in the Arab community, is still outside the labor federation. Arab workers are touchy on this subject, considering that the Histadrut Arab department has granted them too little real autonomy. Both they and their Congress colleagues urge their acceptance into Histadrut as the only way to ensure them full equality in pay and employment opportunities — a problem which has already caused some friction among Jewish unemployed. Meanwhile, the Histadrut has organized Arab cooperatives of weavers, drivers, farm laborers and even Bedouin consumers. Among the hardest hit are wealthy Arab townsmen whose property has not yet been released by the custodian for absentees property. This agency is now the greatest holder of real estate in Israel and is responsible for the preservation of abandoned plantations as well as the exploitation of ownerless land and buildings. Its jurisdiction which even covers persons now resident in Israel but who left their homes during the fighting, is very great. The courts are assisting local Arabs in their struggle against this administration, mainly in cases of property jointly owned by residents and absentees and whose return is requested by a resident. In such a case, the Supreme Court recently ordered the release of a plant, holding that the custodian cannot claim powers in the name (Continued on Page 88) V EGETABLES ITAMINS ICTORY KLEFEKER PRODUCE CO. 2160 N.W. 21st,St. Ph. 3-8795 TO ALL A MOST HAPPY NEW YEAR ZOBEL "GOOD GULF SERVICE" — Nuf Sed— 944—5th Street Miami Beach GREETINGS THREK WAY GARAGE SATISFIED SERVICE OUR GUARANTEE 3492 Main Highway Phone 4 2242 TO ALL A MOST HAPPY NEW YEAR Telephones 7-9079. 89-5725 I nilv Electric Co., Inc.

Throughout the long night of Jewish wanderEnag Hebrew always remained alive even if not spoken. Jews JJ C commentaries without number on the Bible and Talmud In Hebrew.

To be sure Eliezar ben Yehuda and his followers coined many new word-forms and idioms, but the organic structure of the language remains intact. Anyone with a sense of history and language cannot but be thrilled to hear the majestic sounds and syllables of the language spoken some thirtyfive centuries ago, today both wntaneously and majestically roll off the tongues of little Israeli children. Hebrew never was a thing of the past." shut up in old books £nd manuscripts, and to trace its listorv. and in particular in colojial America, is an interesting tudv. In early colonial America, lebrew was a favorite subject of tudy and created quite a vogue. 'o the early Americans the He rew language was something ery living. It was an indispensaile tool to the trained ministers f the time, but it was also a iart of the equipment of all who rould read the Bible in its origintongue—the ambition of almost 11 the early settlers as so elouently expressed by Cotton ather in speaking of Governor radford: "But the Hebrew he iost of all studied because he id he would see with his own yes the ancient oracles of God their natural beauty." The Bible was the one familiar ook being read morning, noon, id night and everywhere its ords kindled a sparkling enhusiasm. These early colonists 'nund in it a strong analogy be:ween themselves and the Is'aelitc-s seeking freedom in the Yomised Land. America was lied "The Promised Land," the ilgrims were referred to as "our ppy Israel in America," Wilam Bradford, the second governor of Phlymouth, as "Moses." Mather called the early magistrates "ba'ale nefesh," (men of spirit), and the ministers "hasidim harishonim," (first pious men), while John Winthrop, who was governor of the Massachusetts colony was called "Nehemias Americanus," the American Nehemiah after Nehemiah who administered the Hebrews in Palestine when they returned from exile in Babylonia. As soon as each successive outlaying settlement was located and established the community built a house for the purpose of assembling therein for the public worship of God. This course was called by Cotton Mather, a meeting-house, the expression being taken directly from the Bible. So great was the interest in Hebraic culture that children were commonly given Hebrew names. We are all familiar with the early New England names of Abigail, Deborah, Hannah, Sarah, Samuel, Benjamin, Abraham, Moses, Gersmom, Ezra, Jeremiah, and so forth. The very manner in which the Puritan daughters dressed proved their familiarity with the Bible. Except for the "nosejewels" the exhaustive list of the prophet Isaiah might serve for New England as for Jerusalem and Judah. The every day speech of New England was the language of the Bible. This influence of the Hebrew language has found its way into American speech to this day. About half the verses of the Book of Psalms have virtually become English idioms. Almost all of the phrases of "Proverbs," "Song of Songs," "Ecclesiastes," as well as many others have been domesticated by the English speaking peoples. Hebrew words like cherubim, seraphim, jug, vermillion, rabbi, and so forth, have become part of the English vernacular.

The study of the Hebrew language occupied a prominent position among the New England clergy, the main profession for which our earliest institutions of higher education were founded. New England could boast of a number of outstanding Hebrew scholars among whom were John Eliot, Increase and Cotton Mather, William Bradford, John Dunster, Ezra Stiles, Isaac Addington, Ethan Allan, Joseph Green and Charles Chauncey, and several others. Increase Mather delivered discourses in Hebrew. His son Cotton wrote a relatively scholarly dissertation on Hebrew grammar. The prominent Puritan and Hebrew scholar, John Udall, translated Peter Marinius' Hebrew grammar, and compiled a Hebrew dictionary. In William Bradford's "History of Plymouth Plantation," he expresses his deep love for the Hebrew language and reveals his knowledge of the Bible. The work lists twenty-five Biblical passages in the Hebrew original together with the English translations, and includes a Hebrew-English vocabulary of several hundred words. The first book of importance to be printed was in 1640, and was entitled the "Bay Psalm Book." It was written by Richard Mather, John Eliot, and Thomas Welde, and contained an original translation of the Psalms from the Hebrew. During the first few decades after the foundation of Harvard College no course of study figured more largely than Hebrew. From the first, in 1636, the date of its founding, to the Revolutionary War, the Puritans were able to indulge a repressed desire for more and better Hebrew, after founding a college of their own.

"We eave you Israel." he said curtly, KJw What do you want?" A auiet but highly efficient job „f combatting anti-Semitism was SLc by the Washington office of the B'nai BVith Anti-Defamabn League, capably directed by Herman Edelsberg The ADL B mission in Washington is to interpret the capital scene to the Jewish communities of the nation and to tell legislators about the id eas of American Jews. Rep. j 0 hn Rankin. of Mississippi, threatened to introduce a resolution in the House to investigate "that subversive organization, the Anti-Defamation League. This laughable threat may be considered an outstanding compliment to the ADL's effectiveness and continuous vigilance. The Federal Communications Commission cracked down on G. A Richards, owner of important radio stations, who was accused of ordering anti-Semitism injected in news broadcasts of his Los Angeles station, KMPC. Members of his newsroom staff filed affidavits with the FCC incriminating him. He also owns stations WJR in Detroit and WGAR. Cleveland. Will Maslow, general counsel of the American Jewish Congress, hailed action of the FCC in the case as being of tremendous significance in preserving the U.S. from "the poison of hatred deliberately spread by those who abuse the privilege of being licensed to utilize mass media of communication like radio." Jewish organizations have J long sought a national fair employment practices law to guarantee equal job rights to Jewish workers. This year a Negro legislator, Rep. Adam C. Powell, Jr., of New York, led the fight in | Congress, but to little avail. He headed a committee which brought out an anti-discrimination bill and got a "firm commitment" from the Democratic leadership that the measure would be brought to the floor in January, 1950. The Powell bill would make religious or racial discrimination unlawful for firms engaging in interstate commerce. It would fulfill one of the major planks in President Truman's civil rights program. It was at House hearings on the Powell bill that Rep. Clare I Hoffman of Michigan, added his memorable testimony. He said, "There's no discrimination against Jews in this country. They are on top. Why. they have the world by the tail'" A group libel bill, the brainchild of Rep. Arthur G. Klein, of | New York, was talked about in Ihe House, but got nowhere. The measure would prevent the mailing of defamatory literature libelling a racial or religious group. President Truman reiterated his stand on civil rights when a delegation of B'nai B'rith ADL leaders called at the White House to present him with the first copy of "How Secure These Rights?" ADL's annual report on antiSemitism in the U.S. The President told the committee, headed by Meier Steinbrink, national ADL chairman, that he intended to stand by his fight against discrimination and bigotry. The Civil Service Commission strengthened its regulations against discrimination; the Jewish War Veterans endorsed the Atlantic Pact; the conviction of an anti-Semitic Catholic priest, Father Terminiello, was reversed by the Supreme Court—so went the year 5709. A gain here and a loss there in the continuing struggle to insure for American Jews the full benefits of the true Americanism of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. As the year approached a close it became increasingly evident that the heritage of religious freedom must be guarded steadfastly —that Washington reflected the temper of the nation and that there were dark days ahead. But there was also hope. The age of the brotherhood of man has not yet dawned in the nation's capital but it may not be too far below the horizon. This Year And Next Greetings To Our Many Jewish Friends and Patrons SOUTH FLORIDA LIQUOR DISTRIBUTORS INCORPORATED 62 S.W. Third Street PHONE 2-7664 COMPLIMENTS Mr. and Mrs. Henry D. Williams and Family (Continued from Page 33) hardest work ever put into our communities, with campaign results second only to the recordbreaking previous year, and with unprecedented progress. We demonstrated it by the flood of communal service and action at every level—in re-examining and strengthening our structure and machinery, increasing Jewish education programs and facilities, extending our hospitals, making greater provision for the growing numbers of aged, launching new programs for the chronically ill, revising outmoded family welfare and child care practices, re-adapting and spreading Jewish center activities. This generation has undertaken the historic task of rebuilding Israel and at the same time reconstructing an American Jewish life to reflect the needs, the character, the aspirations of American Jewry as of today, not merely to live on the inadequate and no longer fitting pattern of the past. These tasks will go forward, impelled by the inescapable events of society and history. The pressures for the jobs to be tackled by our communities, locally, regionally, and nationally will be tremendous on all fronts. It will call for wisdom and statesmanship that sees beyond narrow partisanship to the greater good for all, that looks from the mountain top not at a series of individual peaks and rivers and valleys, but at the total landscape as one panorama, each part dependent upon the others, only together making up the beauty of the landscape. The year 5710 will be a year of great need and great opportunity. We have a long way to go. But we are better mobilized, better organized, better equipped by understanding and experience than ever before to make the most of that opportunity.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23. 1949 *Jenisfi ritwHinti PAGE SIXTY-ONE Theodor Herzl—Israel's Redeemer (Continued from Page 53) regularity, with a mild breeze to refresh man and beast. "Then appeared my son Abraham. Dignified in form, stalwart and strong, black hair adorned his head and his beard cascaded in fullness. His head denoted mental strength and his eyes great vision. His Hittite nose added an imperial personality and a power of persuasion over others. He possessed human courage over animal bravery. His manner was all grace and a majestic appearance. His tributes and devotion to Sarah, a divine and queenly help-mate, showed rectitude of purpose and an even sense of justice ana generosity. Then followed the dutiful Isaac and his spouse Rebecca, Jacob the Devout with Leah and Rachael and their sons. Thus was laid the firmness of Israel and the foundation of Palestina." Herzl rose and mirrored himself. He paid no heed to the others, the mimicking and the abuse. The man who presumed in the past that Israel will be assimilated and be lost and forgotten forever already felt solidly the self-reliance that is the mainstay of Israel. •'I am Abraham," he mused, as he saw his image and remembered the description of the ancient father of his people, the cascading beard and the proud nose. "It is I," he repeated over and over again. "Beautiful land," he continued, "and I have never seen it, nor have my people or my forebears for two thousand years. If it has suffered from my absence we shall soon repair it. Why has it been left for generations past to foreign hands to desecrate?" "Hear, Abraham," came the call again to the prostrate mind of our new redeemer, "I am Moses. You will need great strength and overwhelming patience. When I found Israel he had already forsaken his land, so assiduously prepared for him, and had wandered into the land of the Pharaohs who had levied upon his rigid slavery, and hard labor. Israel built temples which he could not enter; he irrigated land with his blood to produce food for others. His numbers multiplied only to create more slaves. I brought him out of slavery and despondency, but no sooner had I retreated to write for him a code of ethics and life than he threatened to return to the flesh-pots and chains of Egypt. He had courage, indeed, but no obedience; to obey he first had to understand and be convinced. I willed, for the good of Israel, that the generation of slaves shall not enter Palestine and those who do enter shall be free of mental chains and shall have moral and physical regenesis." "Moses, Oh, Moses," wailed silently his successor, as if it were real and revealing, instead of a refreshing recollection of his studies in childhood, now revived in his own mind for the tasks to come. But now a fresh voice came to him out of nowhere. "I am Maimonides, and my tomb is in Palestine, where it has been awaiting the arrival of my people for nearly one thousand years. I visaged the eternal wandering of Israel, after internecine strife caused him to be uprooted Israel wandered without goal, raiting momentarily to weep by the waters of Babylon, then onward; over the mountain ranges to the land of Confucius, across the deserts, beyond the sea to distant lands when he never returned and to every spot of human habitation. Far to the north, vast and unknown primitive lands, to the shores of stormtossed coasts, Israel brought lines of dejected human beings, pursued and seeking respite, everywhere except in the safety of your land, Abraham. "New lands found new enemies and new modes of persecution. Under the guise of sanctity Israel was impaled and garrotted, buried at the stake with pitying incantations. Cruel masters taught their slaves that he was the cause of their chains, that he brought on conflagrations and Black Deaths. Guilty barons pronounced with authority that Israel withheld the rains and caused the placed the loss of his ship on the unwanted presence on board of Isfaminies. The faulty helmsman rael's sons and they bore all penalties and prescriptions. Take Israel out, if he is willing before he is exterminated. In a more scientific age all weapons will be used upon him with blind fury.

Herzl now saw Israel, in all his historic tragedy, wending his way to the land of Abraham. Mournfully he greeted in his mind and imagination of the returning "tribes," the remnant of a proud people. Israel rests his hand forlorn on his breast, his eyes to the ground, his face wan. The nose, once a symbol of majesty and dignity, is now a grotesque object between his gaunt cheeks. A broken staff assists him in his halting and his slim belongings are clutched tightly. A shadow of Moses, Solomon and David. Only a monosyllable, framed in a sigh, escapes his lips. He is weighted with sorrow but he senses the hope of a return— a tortured body, a dejected mind but still a triumphant Man. Herzl speaks, almost aloud, his own mind reflecting the same torture and degradation. At least he hears a faint voice, "Abraham, I have tarried too long." Dr. and Mrs. Jos. B.

ppmAY. SEPTEMBER 23. 1949 +Jmist>ftnrjffi*n PAGE SEVENTY-SEVEN West Miami Center Uses Ree Hall %  .. %  %  %  A recreation hall, constructed for the inhabitants of a nearby tourist camp, has served as a meeting place for the West Miami Jewish Center since the enthusiastic little group was organized in 1948; however, the congregation, which adheres to the tenets of Conservative Judaism, expects to build a house of worship and community hall of its own in the near future. When 14 individuals who had heeded Horace Greeley's advice to go west met a little over a year ago to consider forming the center, they were informed by the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, which had recently conducted a survey, that they were on record 60 Jewish families in the area. A house-to-house canvass of their own revealed that there were almost 200, and it is estimated that there are now over 300. Over 100 of these are affiliated with the congregation, which has sponsored a number of highly successful affairs—social, cultural and religions. The hall pictured above at 1000 S.W. 67th Ave was transformed into what the members describe as a "real synagogue" for last year's High Holy Day services. A Year Of Jewish Activities In Argentina (Continued from Page 73) of the world-wide policy of closing the doors to Jewish immigrants and a result of the fact that Argentina wants land workers, not intellectuals; people who will not bring unrest in the trade unions, and no workers who come from groups with a Socialist tradition. They assert that Jewish immigrants simply do not fit into the categories of desirable immigrants from the point of view of the authorities. Two positive factors in the internal Jewish scene must be mentioned. Our community, which was bitterly divided in past year on several questions, became more united. There is no difference of opinion about questions of relief overseas; the old conflict between J.D.C. and the W.J.C. disappeared completely. The DALA managed to assert its authority as the central body in inner Jewish matters, although people who want to obtain something from the authorities go toi the O.I.A. Another positive point is the increasing interest in Hebrew. Many youngsters who want to go to Israel—some 400 went last year to fight with the Army— are studying the language of the Bible. On the other hand, general Jewish education did not make great progress. In Jewish theatres and in other places of Jewish culture, only a small percentage of young people are to be found. Jewish educators are striving for a favorable change. Thus, it was recognized that a new approach is necessary toward those Jews who are not acquainted with Jewish cultural treasures and who must be gradually educated. Argentine Jewry, whose origins coincide greatly with the JCA colonization, is today an urban population, with only some 6,000 Jewish colonists. It is becoming more conscious of its duty to contribute to the development of Israel and to assure the continuation of Jewish life in this country. It had another year of tranquility and of relative economic prosperity. Jewish leaders here hope that the coming year will mark a new, and this time more speedy, progress, so that the Argentine Jewish community may occupy the place which is due it as one of the few great "Yishuvim" which survived German barbarity.

Much more did Herzl not know about the people he had vowed to save, against its own will and its adamant reluctance.'He groped in absolute darkness. Pathetic as it is and humiliating to the high mind, Herzl too talked and "heard," from beings of fact and fancy. "I am Palestina," came a voice and our friend unconsciously smiled. "For aeons of years I have floated in the ionosphere, mingling with the mechanics of the universe. Amidst the constellations and stars, through the nebulae, among the asteroids, comets, meteors and planets I have delved into the mysterious unknown force that moves with regularity the stellar bodies. "I first saw Earth when it broke from Mother Sun, an insignificant chunk, whirling off independently into space, only to find that a magnetic power placed it where it is and holds it within the orbit. Earth was then a mass of fire, water and matter, indistinguishable, shrouded in a mist of steam, fumes and smoke. Masses of molten lava about in vest waves. Slowly the fires faded. Earth cooled and cataclysmic upheavals caused deep tremors, created gulfs and protruding heights. Water covered all the Earth but as the violent movements relaxed and the waters moved north and south and became vast stretches of ice they revealed over the remaining lands the fullness of mountains and the majestic oceans. "Earth suffered in its slow formation, but out of its millenia of travail came forth in slow degrees Man, King of the Earth. "I chose a zone of Earth upon which I bestowed my name. Out of the rainbow I sliced colors which I embodied into soil and produce, its grapes, olives, and pomegranates, the eucalyptus and citrus, in the Dead Sea and the fertile ground, and in the waves that dance about its shores. With my hands I shaped the rolling hills and molded the sloping terraces; and beneath soil I placed the seeds for wine, fruit and sustenance.

Third Avenue Phone 3-6371 The history of Congregation Beth David. Miami's oldest, to a large degree parallels the history of the Jewish people in this area. The first Jewish public worship in the city took place on Yom Kippur in 1896. Services were not resumed, however, until about 14 years later with barely a Minyan in attendance. In 1912 this Minyan developed into a congregation which was then called Bnei Zion. Services were conducted by the late Louis Fine. This group engaged the first shoched in the area. Despite its limited membership and lack of resources, the congregation managed to remain active and formed the nucleus for the group known as Beth David which was organized in 1917. At that time the worshipers met at the northwest corner of N.E. 2nd Ave. and 81h St. The present site at 135 N.W. 3rd Ave. was purchased in 1920 from the First Christian Church. By 1925 the congregation had grown to such proportions that a permanent rabbi and Hebrew teacher were engaged and Miami's first Jewish religious school was established. Rabbi Max Shapiro became spiritual leader of the group in 1933. A MOST HAPPY HOLIDAY Deerin£ Awning and Furniture Co.

PAGE EIGHTY-SIX >i f utrk*kfc*n FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER n New Same: Miami Jewish Center Activities at the Miami Jewish Community Center, until last month known officially as the Young Men's and Young Women's Hebrew Association of Greater Miami and unofficially as the Miami Y. are as varied as the age groups that congregate there— from two-and-a-half-year-old tots to people over 50. These activities range from dramatics and dance classes to bridge tournaments and calisthenics for overweight women. The center was organized in 1933 as the Hebrew Athletic Club with a membership of 13 young men whose primary objective was to sponsor a sports program for the Jewish men in the community. In 1937 this group was incorporated as the Young Men's Hebrew Association of Greater Miami. A short time thereafter a woman's unit was formed; how;ever, it was not until 1944 that the charter and constitution of both groups were amended and the Young Men's and Young Women's Hebrew Association of Greater Miami was formed. Thereafter women were permitted to hold office. Last month when the organisation became the Miami Jewish Community Center, its objectives were redefined to read: "To develop a program of informal education, recreation and health education which should devote primary attention to the spiritual-cultural factors which constitute the Jewish way of life. To develop a comprehensive program responsive o the interest of people of all ages. Nothing of human concern is alien to the center ." Located at 450 S.W. 16th Ave~ the new center building pictured above—a sleekly modern twostory structure with basement shower-and-locker area—was completed in 1948. It contains a gymnasium, auditorium and stage, lounge, library, camera room, patio, kitchen, dressing rooms, offices, health club and the aforementioned showers and lockers. A smaller building across the street houses the nursery, game room, club rooms, outdoor athletic dub. The center has a membership of over 2200 people.

(JTA—President ChainWeizmann of Israel issued the following New Year's message thrcugh the Jewish Telegraphic Agency: "I send greetings from the State of Israel to the Jewish people the world over on the occasion or Rosh Hashona. which we are celebrating for the second time as a free people in our own land. "Our people have known great suffering; with suffering was the state established. From sacrifice and anguish was freedom fashioned and sovereignty secured. Today in peace we seek only to pursue the constructive tasks of building the country, developing the resources of the homeland that our people may enjoy a full life and walk in dignity. "Our danger is not yet over. But w:th:ut an hour's interruption we follow Zion's purpose—welcoming back our brethren from overseas, reviving both the state and the nation. We fervently hope we will be blessed in the New Year with the means of setting the new state en the path of economic, social and cultural fulfillment that Israel may serve as a source of strength and inspiration to all Jews "May our people in all their dispersion join to achieve this holy purpose: may our toil be blessed. Heartfelt greetings to every Jew wherever he mav be." The Year In Washington (Continued from Page 83) House and Senate The measure, which follows the idea of lending American technical skill to underdeveloped areas, would provide preliminary survey work on such projects as the Jordan Valley Authority plan of Dr. Walter C. Lowdermilk. American Israeli relations reached a strained status in midJune when the Lausanne conference of the United Nations Palestine Conciliation Commission became stalemated The State Department adopted the view that it was up to Israel to break the deadlock bv agreeing to Arab demands that Arab refugees be readmitted. Israeli Foreign Minister Sharett complained bitterly before the Knesset of American behind-the-scenes pressure. Mark Ethridge. American representative on the Conciliation Commission, resigned and returned to Washington where he reported to President Truman and the State Department. A crisis brewed. Aubrey S. Eban. Israeli delegate to the United Nations, rushed to Washington from Lake Success. Eban. Ethridge. and Acting Secretary of State James E. Webb talked' for over two hours. Asked to comment. Ethridge passed the brunt of responsibility to Israel. He said: "I hope Eban rushed out and advised his government to come up with newproposals." It was decided that the Lausanne talks be recessed, and that, if agreement is not reached, a : full report be made to the General Assembly in September. The United States and Israel seemed to be at odds on three issues They were the Arab refugee question, the future of Jerusalem, and the principle of compensation for territory occupied bv Israel beyond the borders laid down in the United Nations partition plan. As the year 5709 drew to a close the world knew that Israel had arrived as a nation among nations. The eyes of the Jewish people remained focused on Washington which helped give the new state its first breath, confident that the problems of the day would be worked out and forgotten, while the friendship of the two democracies waxed ever stronger.

PAGE FIFTY-FOUR frtmi I fkridlir*r> Germany's Jewry Today By ERNEST LANDAU How many Jews will remain in Germany after the end of the DP immigration wave to Israel and the United States? What will be their future, politically and socially? These are the main questions raised wherever I talked with Jews during my three-months visit in the United States as a representative of the Jewish Communities of Bavaria. To find out the approximate number of Jews remaining in Germany after June. 1950. one must consider that mass migration probably will be finished by that deadline. Individual emigration will be important even after the end of IRO activities because there are Jews in Germany who do not wish to settle in Israel under the present circumstances, and are not eligible to immigrate into the United States under the current DP act. The change in the DP legislation of the United States, which is anticipated by very many Jews in Germany and Austria who are ready to leave these countries, will probably bring a new migra-1 tion movement, even after the end of IRO activities. It is necessary to separate the Jews in Germany into two main groups: 1. Probable emigrants—after the new DP legislation is f in the United States. Thev will number about 10.000. 2. Jews who wish to remain | in the German economy, and i sooner or later become regular | citizens, depending upon the development of the German behavior toward the Jews. Their number is estimated at between 20.000 and 25.000: and it will include about 15.000 persons who; are now DP's. It is. however, to be said that among the above mentioned category there are some who will wish to emigrate during the next ten years, as individuals did during the time between the first World War and the rise of Hitler. The number of Jews who remain in Germany five. ten. or more years will depend mostly upon the internal political development in Germany. Who are the Jews who will remain in Germany? What is their economic and social future? And how far will they be able to contribute to the spiritual tasks of a Jew? As has already been stated, among the Jews who are going to remain in Germany there will be approximately 15.000 DP's who had the opportunity to become a part of the German economy. Thev have the feeling that nowhere else will they have the same economic opportunities, and that their re-establishment in anv other country will never permit them the same living standard thev have in Germany. Most of them have satisfactory business connections. Some of them own shops: some have larger businesses or have jobs permitting them to earn a satisfactory living. It is, however, true that many would rather live elsewhere. Their hope is to earn sufficient money in Germany to permit them to settle later in another country under better starting conditions than they would have without capital. These people are completely self-supporting, and are to be considered the main contributors to the future Jewish communities. The second group of DP's consists of people who wish to emigrate to the United States and not to Israel. They do not wish to remain in Germany, but do so because they are expecting more favorable DP legislation. They are not necessarily anti-Zionists, but simply have the feeling that they will have better opportunities in the United States than in Israel. They are. in general, able to support themselves. If the anticipated DP legislation does not emerge, they will have to make up their minds whether to leave for Israel or to adapt themselves to the German economy. I There is a third group of DP s in Germany which would like to leave the country as soon as possible Their economic situation is bad. Most of them cannot leave !the country because of their physical condition. They are the real hardship-cases. Most of them are chronically ill or invalids. 1 manv have tuberculosis or other incurable sicknesses. Israel is not vet able to accept them. !" It is understood that Israel will I be readv to accept them within I the next three to five years, particularly if the necessary funds are made available by international bodies such as IRO. or by voluntary Jewish charity organizations. There is. of course, no doubt that these people will never be eligible for immigration into anv other country but Israel because of their physical condition. In the meantime, they have to i wait. Their future is a very inse; cure one. particularly since the IRO is scheduled to stop its activities by the end of June. 1950. It therefore will be one of the major tasks of Jewish charity and welfare organizations, both local (Continued on Page 62) A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL M ABIE B A L A B A N 1334 Washington Avenue SEASON'S GREETINGS Superior Sheet Metal Works 830 N.

PAGE FORTY-EIGHT Itnisti ikridnan FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER ^ The Year In Jewish Sports By HASKELL COHEN .right. 194?. Jewish Telegi \% %  | One of the most important mergers in the history of American sports took place on Auqust 3, when the National Basketball League, long a power in professional basketball, and the ihree-yeai old Basketball Association of America stopped their warfare and joined forces to form a new league—the National Basketball Association. The guiding genius behind the merger was Maurice Podoloff of New Haven. Conn., president of the BAA. whose expert organizational work resulted in both leagues getting together. Podoloff. who headed the BAA since it? inception, was made president of the new National Basketball Association. Podoloff. a man of many and varied facets, has made his presence felt nationally since his BAA. started professional basketball on a major league basis back in 1946. A hockev for 20 years, president of a bank, confidential real estate purchasing agent for Yale Univ an avid yachtsman. P od brought all of these experiences with him into the c >mpl< x tii I running a new league His I for organization, his abilities to make ouick and decisive judgments have brought him tiie plaudits of men who have been part of the national sports for many years. Podoloff first entered thi field through ice hockey when. he entered inl | nership with his brothers to build the New Haven Arena. Although he knew little about the ice at the time, his exceptional foresight enabled him t visualize the potentialities of hockey in C mnecticut, New Haven first became connected with professional hockey in the Canadian American Hockey League in 1926-27 Through the energetic efforts of the Podoloff brothers, the city has had representation in professional hockey since, with the exception of two years during tlu war. For the first few years of New H I .key. Podoloff restricted %  i ntirely to operating New Haven. He was then elected nt and took over of directing the entire circuit. In 1936. the Canadian A ican League merged with the International Hockey League. and became the American Hockey the title which it retains %  Although small in stature. Podoloff is big in the way he gets things accomplished, as is evidenced by the rapid growth of the AHL. which is now one of the leading spoi ts organizations in the country. One of Podoloff's principal tasks each season is t:ie drawing of a schedule of games. It is :n this capacity that he displays his organizing genius. With so many events such as basketball, ice shows, rodeos and circuses to be fitted into a 350-game hockey schedule, it requires superhuman effort to cram everything into the league arenas. Podoloff never takes the matter of hours into consideration when he is working or traveling about the country in behalf of his sports empire. He is constantly striving to improve conditions throughout the circuit and. although approaching the 60-year mark, he is eagerly looking ahead to the dav when the American Hockey League will have a higher place in the realm of sport. He foresees such a possibility in the not too distant future as a number of the leading cities in the country are expected to seek AHL franchises. New arenas are in the drawing board stage and upon their completion, such cities as Rochester. Syracuse and others will be welcomed into the AHL fold to join the ten now in operation.

It was this heritage that the middle ages had bequeathed to posterity. At Harvard Hebrew was regarded as the key to the Mother of all languages. Freshmen at Harvard began with Hebrew.

The preachers of those days, saturated in the religion and literature of the Hebrew prophets were leaders, teachers, moral mentors and even the political philosophers of their flocks. As President Calvin Coolidge pointed out so well in his address at the laying of the cornerstone of the Jewish Communitv Center Building. Washington. D. C. that "a peoDle raised under such a leadership, given to much study and contemplation of the Scriptues, inevitably became familiar with the great figures of Hebrew hist ry, with Joshua. Samuel. M s, Joseph, David. Solomon. Gideon. Elisha—more than they were with the stories of their >wn ancestors as recorded in the pages of profane history." Biblical influence had helped not a little in favoring and strengthening opposition to the parliamentary claim. The contest with England hinged upon consti.. ng ( language, the meaning statutes, the essence of practice and customs. The two A I imses. Madison, and Jefferson ar.d their brethren were at home in this field. They knew the B:b!e and were eminently capable in the exposition of all its justifications for rebellion. They knew how to thrust, to parry, to word, to defend, to attack with pen because they had been at that form of warfare all their days. They were the victors over their antagonists across the waters, because they were the more powerful in elevated discussion. Several decades before the Declaration of Independence was made, the abhorrence of monarchy expressed in the Bible was made the great watchword of the American people — "Proclaim 1 i b e r t v throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof" — Leviticus: XXV: 10—and was inscribed on the Liberty Bell which hangs in Independence Hall in Philadelphia. Today we do not know whether or not history has decreed that Israel, now restored after 2000 years of exile, should give another Bible to the world. It is certain that humanity may look to a new efflorescence of Jewish culture on the old soil of Israel.

PAGE SIXTY-TWO *Jenist> fkgjMSUL FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 1949 Germany's Jewry Today (Continued from Page 54) and international, to take care of these people. Aside from the DP's. there are some German Jews who wish to remain in Germany. We can say that those who desired to emigrate have already done so. All Jews born in Germany and Austria have had. since the beginning of the American occupation of Germany and Austria, an opportunity to emigrate to the United States because the quota system favored citizens born and residing in Germany or Austria. It can also be said that most of the German Jews who desired to leave for Israel have already gone. The remaining German Jews have no desire to move, for several reasons. First of all. the small number of German Jews consists chiefly of aged persons who feel unable to earn their livelihood anywhere else than in Germany. They believe that they will not be able to learn another language or to adapt themselves to new living conditions, climate, etc. Although their economic status in Germany is far from satisfactory, they stay. They gave up hope. They are tired of endless wandering. They wait for death. Other German Jews, mostly the younger ones, had an opportunity to get jobs or go into business. Although they do not consider themselves nationalistic Germans anymore, they prefer to stay. Many of them have relatives among the non-Jews in Germany: many were saved due to the fact that their partners in the marriage were non-Jewish. Also there are some who wish to remain with their parents or with other Germany-bound relatives whom they finally succeeded in finding, some after a long separation. The economic condition of this group is not too bad. They manage to earn their living. Many of them are indifferent to Jewish problems. It is true that their children sometimes come back to Jewish life, even though their parents no longer have any connections with it. To recapitulate: it should be said that economic conditions— except for the hardship cases— are generally satisfactory, and Jews in Germany—if one considers life only from this viewpoint —will be able to get along. • But. economic conditions generally depend upon both social relationships and political developments in a country. One of the main problems, insofar as Jhe future of the Jew is concerned, will be their status in relation to the non-Jewish population. To date, almost no social relationship has been reestablished. It was not too hard for Jews to come into close contact with Germans at the end of the war. Almost every German in 1945 was happy to have at least one Jewas a friend or as a personal contact. Thus, he felt, he had a better chance of not being suspected of Nazi affiliations. However, most Dr. and Mrs. MAX PEPPER AND FAMILY EXTEND BEST WISHES for a HAPPY NEW YEAR To All Their Friends and Relatives Best Wishes For A HAPPY NEW YEAR Mr. and Mrs. Harry Gordon and Family 6034 Indian Creek Drive MIAMI BEACH of the Jews refused to have any close contact with the Germans. However, since denazification broke down. Jews are not sought after anymore by the Germans. This seems to be the best proof that most of the Germans did not want the friendship of a particular Jew but were looking to their personal advantage. The very moment they felt they had no further need for Jews they again became indifferent to them or reverted to the old anti-Semites they used to be. Theie are some sincere relations between Germans and Jews too. Many of the surviving Jews were hidden or saved by nonJewish Germans during the Nazi regime, and it is a matter of fairness and appreciation to pay tribute to these very few Germans. Some recent events have led to a better mutual understanding between Germans and Jews: There is. first of all, the continuing emigration since the establishment of the Israeli state: and. secondly, the success of the Israeli Army in fighting the Arab aggressors. One must know the German psychology to understand how irritating these events were to the average German mind. The Germans believed, even after the United Nations General Assembly's partition decision, that the Jews would never be successful in creating a Jewish state. In May. June and July of 1948. when the"State of Israel was already established, the Germans were positive that the Israeli Army would never be able to win out against the armies of seven Arab countries supported by the British. The final success by the Israelis, however, changed the German mind which had always believed that the Jews were not good soldiers. What lesson did the Jews learn from this little incident? The lesson was that the basis for mutual understanding in the future will De respect. Jews will be respected not through what they are doing or not doing in Germany, but through the success of the Israeli state. The contribution of the Jews during the centuries to European, and particularly to German culture and civilization, does not mean anvthing to the Germans. There are very few who even know the role of the Jews in history. The younger Germans, due to Nazi propaganda and miseducation know nothing about it. and do not believe it even when they are told about it. The antiSemitic poison is too strong in the German mind, particularly in that of the youngsters. The reeducation program being carried out by both the Americans and British did not have the desired result insofar as the behavior of the Germans towards the Jews is concerned. It is obvious one can not reeducate in four years a people which has been misled for twelve years. There is. however, one thing which should and could be done in the future, if there is any interest in having better mutual understanding and approach. But this has to be done by the Jews themselves, and not by any other people. I mean the creation of an atmosphere of respect. It will depend upon the Jewish behavior in all kinds of situations. The recognition of Israel by almost all the countries of the world and its admission into the United Nations probably did more in fighting German anti-Semitism than everything else ever did. So did its success jn the military and diplomatic fields. HAPPY NEW YEAR DAVID COLLINS BISCAYNE HOSPITAL 6339 Biscayne Blvd. Mr. and Mrs. X or man It.

PAGE FIFTY-EIGHT •pJenisti ihridiiajn %  %  iU : Rosh Hashona Reflections FH1DAY, SEPTEMBEH n ..,„, By DAVID SCHWARTZ Rosh Rashona was so different from the secular New Year. It was so differently observed, too. The secular New Year's Day was gay and hilarious. Ours was solemn. Despite our clothing stores and what not, we Jews seemed to be a God-intoxicated people. It came, too, at such a different time. Like Emma Lazarus said, not when "the naked branches point to frozen skies" but when "the orchards burn with fiery gold, the grape glows like a precious jewel" and nature teems with abundance. We lived in a small town and on Rosh Hashona even the nonJews seemed to get something of the spirit of the day, for they must have felt that the Jews took on a kind of holiness on that day. And this spirit must have been contagious, as any form of sincerity is. At least, so I felt. Who is a Jew and who is not? That question was frequently asked by our elders and there were many divergencies of opinion. If a man didn't keep Sabbath, was he a Jew? If he ate forbidden food, was he a Jew? On Rosh Hashona, the question seemed to settle itself. Everyone who refrained from work was a Jew. We children sensed the agitation of the day in our parents' minds. We heard papa say that if a man committed a wrong against his neighbor, he must go and ask forgiveness, for in the synagogue, only sins against God could be forgiven. Sins against man must be forgiven by the man sinned against. Rosh Hashona had a lot to do with sins. You go to the river and cast your sins into the water. We had a little lake in our town and I guess a lot of its mud came from our sins. I sometimes fancy that many pretty flowers would grow on some of this mud, for it seems to me that there are many little sins that really have much to commend them. If you give a person a little of the honey of flattery, you may sin against the truth, yet it is a pretty thing for all that. Our real sin is our want of fundamental faith. Had we that, we should not stoop to slander or hate which evidence the distrust of our own powers. The synagogues were jammed on Rosh Hashona. On that day a policeman stood in front of the synagogue in our town. I always resented his being there. Even in those days we used to tell each other the story about the man who asked permission of the policeman to go in for a moment to look for a friend. The man had no ticket. "All right," said the policeman, "but if I catch you praying, God help you." Most of the time it seemed there were as many outside the synagogue talking as inside praying. It was the day when the whole community gathered for conversation. We came to talk GREETINGS FOR A HAPPY NEW YEAR Mr. and Mrs. LOUIE BANDEL A HAPPY NEW YEAR GAMBLE HARDWARE CO. 3311 N.W. 17th Ave. 2-2494 Associated with SYKES HARDWARE, INC. 78-1695 Paints, Houtewarei, Tools, Gifts, Fishing Tackle, Appliances 284 N. E. 79th Street with God but we stole some time to talk to each other. I think God will forgive us this theft. In fact, it is my belief that God approves of it. I rather think He frowns upon the more modern, more decorous form of worship, where everyone quietly retires to his own hearth and fireside after the services. The term "religion," I believe, means "to tie together." How better can you tie people together than by having them talk to one another? In the name of an insipid decorum, we latterday Jews have sacrified much of the real vitamins of religion. The cantor put on his best performance on Rosh Hashona. He had been rehearsing for weeks and likely as not he would spring some new melody on the congregation. The synagogue in those pre-radio days was one place where the people got something like opera. And then there was the blowing of the shofar. You could understand why the ancient Hebrews used the shofar to summon their soldiery to combat. The piercing sound seemed in harmony with the day, when you read in your prayer book: "This day, all creatures of the world stand in judgment." It sounded fearsome. We were misnagdim. The Chassidim took it with less awe. Their rabbi, like the great Isaac Leib of Berditchef, who could call out, "Good Morning God," could demand of Providence in a tone more peremptory than prayer, that He grant Israel a happy new year. We saw our parents beat their breasts as they confessed their sins. I remember as a child being a little taken aback at the amount of sinning that was confessed to in the prayer book. Judging by the prayers, it appears that it was assumed that every worshipper had committed all the sins on the calendar. We Jews seemed to say in our synagogues, no sin is alien to us. And perhaps that is a healthy outlook. When we assume that attitude we cease sitting in judgment on others. Yes, Rosh Hashona was a day of much praying, much talking, much mingling, music and shofar blowing and when we got home we dipped some apples in honey, symbolic of a sweet year and wished one another that they be "written" down for a happy new year—but the term "written" used to trouble me. How could they be writing up in the skies on Rosh Hashona! Is it not forbidden to "write" on that day. Did not Jewish concepts hold that the Law was as applicable on Heaven as on earth. Did not the Chassidim teach that God, too, put on his philacteries every morning? But then there was the de luxe yom tov meal which mama had prepared, which seemed to resolve even the mental doubts.

PAGE FOUR *Jcistitkr£df/ia/> FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 23, 1949 EDITORIAL A \eaYear's Message By MORRIS KLASS Executive Director Greater Miami Jewish Federation The year 1949 maikcd a turning point in American Jewish communal and philanthropic activity. Prior to 1942. the philanthropic efforts and generosity of American Jewry poured forth to rescue our people exposed to the Hitler terror. During the war our entire energies were directed to our own country's national war effort, helping to bring victory on the military front. Following the war, we endeavored to keep alive the pitifully small remnant of men, women and children released from concentration camps until such time as a permanent home could be found for them. Then came the world-shaking events leading to the creation of the State of Israel and the call to its defense. Israel's rebirth speeded the migration of over a quarter of a million persecuted war derelicts, from countries where they were unhappy and unwelcome, to their own homeland where they could start anew. Although large sums of money must still be raised to support this great philanthropic movement the pressures of day to day emergency situations is gradually easing and will continue to do SO The year ahead will open great vistas of opportunity for American Jewry to redirect its attention from the great needs of other Jewish communities to that of our own—the largest, the wealthiest, yet the one with the greatest potential threat of disintegration, disintegration resulting from the very freedom and opportunity, the very comfort and ease of assimilation. The creation of the State of Israel has already had a tremendous impact on Jewish community life in America loiisinj our prestige our selfrespect and our ego. Whether the cleavage of national ties will now separate the Jewries of the world or bring in a closer relationship on a culhiral and spiritual level with those of our people who are making their own destiny under their own flag remains to be seen. The test will come secwhethei the negative factor of persecution is the only cement that can hold the Jewish people together. We in America cannot rely on the spiritual forces emanatinq from Israel to avert the impending dangers of assimilation and disintegration that lie before us. This challenge to the American Jewish community must be faced by ourselves alone. If we cannot create and supply our own springs of spiritual sustenance that will strengthen and foster Jewish life in America and assure the future of an American Jewish community, the largest and wealthiest Jewish community of the world will follow the path of the ten lost tribes and become only a historic memory. I am hopeful that the year ahead will be the start of that "golden age of Jewry in America" such as we saw in the early days of Spain with the flowering of Jewish letters and culture, with Jewish science and achievement contributing to the human wealth of the world. In those days, it was the springing up of great men that spearheaded progress. Today, progress in this direction must rest on our communal agencies. Our own Federation, realizing these forces at work, is now concentrating on community planning. It set up. this year, two groups that are charting and blueprinting two of the future welfare services in our community. The Committee on Care of the Aaed is working on a community program to meet the problems of our elderly residents, offerina them a chance for self expression for happy and wholesome cultural and recreational opportunities; for the meetina of their health, housina and financial needs in declinina years. The Jewish Home for the Aged is launching a community campaign to increase its facilities for institutional care. In the field of recreational services for youth and adults, the Recreational Committee of Federation is surveying the entire community, particularlv our new suburban areas, and is planning to develop a procrram that will use all resources available, and will offer to all our Jewish residents the best in cultural, recreational and leisure time services, with community funds that can be made available for this program. In the field of Jewish education, our Bureau of Jewish Education, is seeking to meet this new Equal To The Task For the people of Israel, for the hundreds of thousands of homeless Jews on three continents for the Jews of America, the year 5709 was a year of remarkable achievement. The State of Israel, with its gates wide open to the homeless and the displaced, became the focal point for the reconstruction of Jewish life abroad At the same time, one witnessed the emptyinq of scores of Jewish displaced persons camps h Germany, Austria and Italy. This dramatic resettlement of large masses of Jewish people could not have been made possible without the generous and steadfast support of the American Jewish community. The Jews of America proved once again that they can be equal to the demands of history. The year 5710 will bring to the American Jewish community challenges on the domestic and foreign scenes. Once again the Jews of America will prove that they are equal to these challenges. challenge in creating amongst our children, our youth and our adults an identification with our own people, so they can understand and remain true to Jewish tradition and Jewish ideals. Our synagogues old and new are creating better physical facilities for the spiritual guidance of those members of the Jewish community who identify with congregations and feel a part of the religious heritage of our people. We are soon about to witness the opening of our new Mt. Sinai Hospital. On all fronts, our community, now the thirteenth largest Jewish community of America, is growing in size, and in the understanding of its responsibilities. Our population will continue to increase at a rapid rate; so will our problems. We can only hope that our communal understanding and solidarity will increase at least in the same proportion as our needs. Your Federation will be dedicated to this task in the year ahead. On this New Year, I wish to extend to each and every person residing in our community my best wishes for health,, happiness and prosperity!

Anyway, when an Orthodox rabbi, or a meshulach, or a maggid would come from New York or Boston to Burlington during the early 1900's he would be amazed at the bit of Europe he would find there among the Jews. Because of this distinctive Jewishness of ours we even succeeded in luring such a noted figure among American Orthodox rabbis as Rabbi Israel Rosenberg to be our spiritual leader for a time. The Burlington Jewish community which I remember as a child and as a youth was unique not in its Orthodoxy—even then Sabbath observance was beginning to be violated—but rather in the cultural pattern of the EastEuropean Jewish small town. Let me illustrate: My first Hebrew teacher—and I started studying Hebrew a yaer before I entered public school— was the old-time "melamed." There were such "melamdim" all over the United States at that time. But where except in Burlington was the "melamed" known all over "Jew Village" (that's how our little ghetto in the northern part of the town was called) by the diminutive of "Shimmele" and his wife, not by her own name, but as "Shimmeliche"? Where was another teacher nickname "Der Himesh," because coming from another part of Russia he didn't pronounce it "humesh" as all the Burlington Litvaks would, and was known by that name to such an extent that if you ask me today what was his real name I simply cannot tell you?

Plan For Jerusalem Internationalization Released On Opening Of UN Assembly LAKE SUCCESS, (JTA) — A plan for internationalization of Jerusalem was released here on the eve of the opening of the UN. General Assembly. The proposal, submitted to the Assembly by the UN. Conciliation Commission on the basis of a report from its Jerusalem committee, calls for establishment of a "permanent international regime for the Jerusalem area." The 25-article statute calls for internationalization of the entire city—both old and new—under U.N. authority. In a brief preamble to the statute signed by the three members of the commission, the U.N. group asserts that the draft "would guarantee" each distinctive group the "maximum local autonomy," based on the division of the city into Arab and Jewish communities, as tentatively designated on an appended map of the Jerusalem area. The commission cautions that this should not be interpreted as the final boundaries of the city and that it will not prejudice the final over-all peace settlement for Palestine. The report has been submitted for consideration of the General Assembly—which opens here next week—as a basis for discussion. While the draft purports to establish a permanent regime in the exercise of full and permanent U.N. authority over the Jerusalem area, in effect it sets up only a weak U.N. structure consisting of an Assembly-elected commissioner, supported by a mixed 14-man general council— consisting of five. Jews, five Arabs and four members of minority groups—two judiciaries, and some temporary guards. Their powers are mainly restricted to safeguarding the safety of and access to the Holy Places. The territory of the international area of Greater Jerusalem would be expanded to a territory of 100 square miles, including the city of Bethlehem. The exact boundaries of the area shall be decided by an on-the-spot mixed boundary commission, the report says. The report also recommends that the entire area of Jerusalem should be "permanently demilitarized and neutralized." It calls on the parties concerned to guarantee to the General Assembly public services normally "necessary for the administration of municipal affairs." The proposed regime would have none of the characteristics of a strong political or legal government: it would not be backed by security forces or by a municipal budget. All U.N. officials are to be subsidized by the United Nations. The precise legal position of the peoples of the area is left in doubt. The commission would be appointed by the General Assembly for a term of five years and would be responsible to the Assembly for safeguarding the Holy Places. He would preside over the 14man council, with powers to coordinate common services, promote mutual and outside commerce, and to allocate contributions to the maintenance of common civil and religious endeavors. A three-man international tribunal, elected by the Assembly and the Security Council, will render decisions under its own procedures—on all disputes affecting relations between the antee 10 me general /u*emuir i->' -—.,, "l„„ i,~,,„ nnw er

vkMistflcridiiian FRIDAY, SEPTEMRFP o, *+ Israelite Center To Build Sehool This neat frame house with the striped shutters has been used by the Israelite Center as a meeting place since the group was organized two and a half years ago, but it won't be long before the congregation starts construction of its own structure at 24th Terr., just off 32nd Ave. Architect's plans have already been drawn and work will begin shortly after the High Holy Days. A Hebrew School building is scheduled to be erected first, then a synagogue, beacuse need for the former is more urgent at the present time. Israel And American Jewry (Continued from Page 68) bulk of the Jewish population will live as free citizens in other lands beyond the borders of the Holy Land. In this new spiritual configuration what will be the role of American Judaism? What will be its relation to the religious, cultural center in Zion? Will American Jewry recognize and accept the spiritual authority of the new center in Zion? It is conceivable that a Sanhedrin may be set up in Jerusalem that shall exercise binding religious authority over the Jews of America? The answer is. of course, clearly no. There is no room for an authoritarian body in modern Judsiam. Israel may offer guidance, direction, inspiration. It cannot and will not command. How then will the status of American Jewry be affected? Will it rise or fall in the scale of spiritual evaluation. Will it become a spiritual dependancy of Israel or will it be spurred on to greater heights of cultural creatively? Will it lean passively on Israel or will it respond energetically to the spiritual radiation of Israel reborn? These questions affect profoundly the future planning of Jewish activities in this country. There are those who are ready to write off American Judaism as an essential element in the totality of world Judaism. In their eyes, the future of our faith and culture is bound up wholly in the life of the pioneers and settlers in Israel. Only in the vivid atmosphere of a free independent Israel can the Jewish genius be re-awakened. Jewish civilization is to them synonymous with life in the Jewish state. Every other manifestation of Jewish life abroad is a diluted phenomena. It is a compromise with the true Hebrew spirit. It is therefore secondary, transitory and will fade away. I most vigorously dissent from this viewpoint. These views are not only ethically unsound: they falsify the entire course of Jewish history. Whether these views emanate from Israel or America they must be vigorously repudiated. Their acceptance would be spiritually damaging to American Jewry but even more disastrous to the evolving nation in Israel. Israel cannot live and thrive spiritually in isolation. Its future destiny, like its past, is unique. Israel will make its peace with its neighbors. Hebraism and Arabism will cross-fertilize each other, as they did in the past, to mutual advantage and to the great gain of the world's civilization. But Israel cannot remain a mere enclave among Middle East countries. Its spirit is universal. When Judaism was most creative, as in the period of the Second Commonwealth, there was a mutual and reciprocal bond between Jerusalem and the Jewries beyond in the lands of Egypt and Babylon. These great Jewries who in turn contributed first Hellinistic Judaism and later the monumental Babylonian Talmud not only received the overflow of the spirit of the Holy Land; they were tributaries that fed the springs and wells in Jerusalem. Modern Israel too must maintain this reciprocal relation with the outer world, and if it is to fulfill the embodiment of its hopes and dreams. Great as is the need for the vitalizing spirit of Israel, it is equally important for Israel to draw nourishment from the spiritual resources of America. The land of Israel is the native home of the prophetic spirit. It is given to song, lore and mysticism. It is attuned to the spirit of the Infinite. It is the land from which the voice of God spoke to the heart of man. Jewish culture has also been enriched by outside influences. Palestine yielded mysticism; the Diaspora, rationalism, Jewish philosophy, its ethical systems. even the codification of the Law of Judaism are products of countries other than Palestine. The soul of Judaism stems from the soil of the land; the mind is universal. To maintain its universal outlook, the spirit of Israel must be invigorated by contact and communion with the lands of the Golah. Viewed from this light, American Jewry has a vital role to play in the future. American Jewry is reared in the democratic faith. It is the heir of universal Judaism. Every segment of world Jewry is represented in our population. American Judaism, furthermore, combines the heritage of Hellenism and the traditions of rabbinism.

ppmAV. SEPTEMBER 23, 1949 *JewisJifhridUain %  Future Of Jewish Medical Graduates By DR. A. J. RONGY This is the season of the year when attention is again directed to the academic world as the institutions of higher education of America re-open to accept thousands of new students and members of the liberal professions. These students, consciously or unconsciously, feel that in a large measure they are destined to become the leaders of our social r i C shall not concern myself at this time with the fate of the Jewish graduates of the various liberal arts, technical and scientific schools and what role they will play in American life. I shall limit myself to the problems of the approximately 650 Jewish voung men and women who this vear were graduated from the medical schools and mirror in my mind what their professional status is likely to be twenty-five years hence. What opportunities will they have to reach a position of influence in their profession? What chances will they have for a complete expression of their medical talent? I do not wish to appear pessimistic but it may safely be predicted—based upon past experience—that with but a few rare exceptions none will become a medical director of any of our large national industrial corporations, none will head the medical department of one of our great life insurance companies, and that but few will attain important positions on the medical faculties. It is sad to contemplate but nevertheless it is true that the largest majority of the Jewish medical graduates will be prevented by artificially created social and economic forces from giving full expression to their medical talents and will perforce be relegated to secondary positions in the medical profession. I venture to predict that the Jewish student, who was awarded the much coveted alumni prize at Columbia College this year, given to "the most faithful and deserving student," and who has decided to embark upon a medical career, will be handicapped in his medical progress by the same artificial social and economic forces and will be prevented from the full development of his medical talents. It seems to me that it is high time that thoughtful men and women, leaders in industry and finance, should begin to concern themselves with and attempt to eradicate some of the weaknesses and the canker sore in our democracy. Patriotic Americans should begin to realize that the survival GEORGE P. KARNEGIS ROYAL BAKING COMPANY 601 N. W. 7th Street GREETINGS DADE COUNTY DAIRIES PHONE 78-4783 AMERICAN AWNING CO. Ben C.

River Dr. of our way of life and the preservation of our institutions will depend upon how auickly we can remove from our body politic these social anomalies which tend to undermine the very cornerstone of our civilization and, if allowed to continue, may eventually destroy it. It is not generally known what a complete transformation has taken place more recently in the post-graduate training of physicians, especially in the training of specialists in the various branches of medicine. In order to become a specialist, the young graduate, after serving a regular internship in an approved hospital, must go through a rigorous training anywhere from three to five years, depending upon the branch he wishes to qualify for, then pass a written and an oral examination, given by the specialty board, in order to be certified. This method of training specialists created a crisis among graduates of some racial and ethnic groups, because most of the hospitals throughout the country have had no time to reorganize their hospital services on a basis which enable them to establish approved residencies for special training. The demand for residencies even now is greater than the supply. The medical committee of the Conference on Jewish Relations very soon became aware of the critical situation facing the Jewish graduate. After a thorough survey of the Jewish hospitals throughout the country, it reached the conclusion that if the hospitals do not establish approved residencies in the various branches of medicine and surgery, a large majority of Jewish physicians will be relegated to the lower rungs of medical practice and but a small percent will have an opportunity to obtain proper training to be qualified for certification. The Council on Medical Education of the American Medical Association lists approved residencies in eighteen specialities and seven sub-specialties. In at least ten of the specialties a minimum of three years training is required in the basic sciences and in the clinical branch of medicine before the applicant is allowed to apply for certification in the particular specialty. Of course, each candidate for a residency must serve at least one year on the interne staff of an approved hospital. It is generally estimated that about one-third of the graduates each year seek residency appointments, which will qualify them for certification. In 1948 there were 5,543 medical graduates in the United States. Accordingly, about 1,850 will apply for special training and certification as specialists. The percentage of Jewish graduates, who desire to become specialists, is probably greater than in the nonJewish groups, because Jewish doctors, as a rule, settle in large cities, not so much of choice but because it is difficult for them to (Continued on Page 42) BILT-RITE BLIND CO.

While playing an important part in outdoor meetings—a characteristic feature of English political life—they did not allow themselves to be drawn into those frequent small clashes that occurred in the East End between Communists and Fascists, followed by court proceedings that gave undue publicity to Fascist propaganda. But they were on the spot whenever the danger became real. A large Mosleyite procession, staged with Nazi military pomp in Brighton, a popular seaside resort, was broken up by Jewish war veterans, and soon their own outdoor meetings began to attract larger crowds than Mosley's British Union could ever muster. A most impressive affair was the Jewish ex-servicemen's annual remembrance parade on November 14, in which over 15,000 veterans took part. The parade and the reunion meeting in Albert Hall that followed in the evening did much to enhance Jewish prestige throughout the country. Meanwhile, increased pressure was put on the government to effect the long overdue recognition of Israel and thus end an unhappy tension. Early in December, ex-Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden, father of the Arab League, and Winston Churchill himself pressed the demand during the Foreign Affairs in Commons. They were joined by Liberal chief Clement Davies and many Socialist back-benchers.

At the same time, the campaign for the release of the Cyprus refugees, held unlawfully on the island after the termination of the Mandate, was stepped up. A critical stage in the development of Anglo-Israeli relations and their impact on Jewish life in England was reached in January when the Israeli army advanced to the Egyptian border, Israeli fighters shot down five British planes, and Britain landed troops in Aqaba. Six months ago such developments would have led to a resurgence of violent anti-Semitism in England. By now, however, respect for Jewish military prowess and determination had grown to the point where the opposite effect was achieved. Though Bevin remained as stubborn as ever, opposition within the Cabinet forced on him the release of the Cyprus refugees. The decision was announced after a Cabinet meeting on January 17. A week later, de facto recognition of Israel was granted by France and Italy. It was clear that this could not have happened without Whitehall's approval. Recognition by Britain, announced at the end of the same week, surprised no one. It was received from Mr. Bevin's hands by Joseph Linton, Israel's Acting Representative, and on the following morning jubilant crowds greeted in Manchester Square the hoisting of the Israeli flag and the beginning of a new era in Anglo-Israeli relations. The arrival in April of a representative of full diplomatic standing, Oxford-educated Dr. Mordecai Eliash, followed next month by the raising of his status to that of Minister to the Court of St. James, continued the development towards normalcy in the relations between Britain and Israel. The practical aspects of the problem were tackled by the opening shortly afterwards of financial talks between the two nations in London, fololwed by conversations on a higher level in Tel Aviv. On the home front, the new turn heralded the doom of Mosley's propaganda. At one of his last large public meetings, held in the Town Hall of the fashionable "Royal borough" of Kensington two days after Britain had recognized Israel, Sir Oswald ranted in vain against the new policy which, he claimed, instead of declaring war against Israel, had made Britons "lick the dust beneath the feet of Jewry." In the municipal elections at the end of February the Mosleyites suffered a crushing defeat, and their provocative march through the Jewish districts of North London was turned v into something much nearer to running the gauntlet than a display of militant strength. The Home Secretary, who had remained adamant to please to forbid the Mosley march, now banned street processions for three months. The Mosley thugs could seek revenge only in brutal and cowardly attacks on isolated Jewish youngsters, many of whom were brought to hospital with serious injuries. While anti-Semitism had been driven off the street by the close of the Jewish year, much dissatisfaction was felt among AngloJewry at the failure of persistent efforts to persuade the government of the necessity to introduce legislation making group libel and incitement to group hatred a punishable offense. There was a great deal of speculation as to the real reasons for this refusal to distinguish between legitimate protection of free speech and the toleration of license and the threat of violence. As far as organized communal life is concerned, the emergence and consolidation of the Israeli State led to a far-reaching reorientation. Traditional party distinctions seemed to have become obsolete. "Whatever may have been our attitude to the idea of a Jewish State in the past," said Lord Justice Cohen, leading British non-Zionist, at a banquet in honor of the Israeli Minister, "there is today hardly a Jew who does not rejoice that His Majesty's government has accorded recogntion to the state and who doubts that it will make a valuable contribution to the spiritual life of the world." However, that reorientation has not yet overcome in practice certain inveterate divergences and jealousies. There is still deep resentment in some quarters over the break-up of the former Joint Foreign Committee of the Board of Deputies and the Anglo-Jewish Association by what is being denounced as the "Zionist caucus" within the Board of Deputies. Moreover, the board has been weakened — merely temporarily, it is generally hoped—by the secession of Liberal, Progressive and Sephardic congregations. Efforts are afoot to set up a rival body around the Anglo-Jewish Association, which recently celebrated its 75th anniversary. On the other hand, strenuous efforts are being made by the World Jewish Congress to bring about Anglo-Jewry's official affiliation to that body. Few doubt that any precipitate action in this direction, far from reaching its objective of fostering Jewish unity, would, at the present juncture, promote rather than prevent communal disintegration.

PAGE EIGHTY-FOUR KgmMSu^OG FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER n 11 .1 Jewish Quiz Box By MILTON FRIEDMAN (Copyright. i(M9. Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.) WASHINGTON — The Arabs have cast an evil eye on the United Jewish Appeal, wistfully predicting that "Israel would perish in four weeks at the most if this grant were stopped." Hazim Nuseibeh. an Arab radio propagandist, should be among the UJA's most effective speakers. A recent talk by Hazim over the Jordan-controlled Jerusalem radio, has attracted attention in Washington. According to Hazim. "Israel has been able to remain in existence due to the 200 million dollars showered on it yearly by American Jewish organizations. This fact proves that Israel lives on American charity and that the just solution of the Palestine problem is in the hands of the American government. The Jews cannot rebel against the United States because if they did the funds collected for them would be frozen and their transfer prohibited. If that happens Israel would either surrender or perish." There have been many recent complaints from Jewish quarters about State Department pressure on Israel. Hazim"s analysis of Israel-American relations is child:>h but reflects unsubtle type of propaganda the Arabs are aiming at President Truman and the State Department. He reveals that "American pressure on the Jews is greatly exaggerated. If the American government earnestly exerted pressure on the Jews they would have no alternative but to yield." Hazim takes great comfort in the fact that immigration to Israel :s dropping off because of Israel's housing shortage and econ mic difficulties. Israel now has 850.000 Jews, he says, "and we do not think that their number will exceed a million for manyyears to come." (It is expected that the figure of 1.000.000 will be reached in the next fewmonths if UJA support continues.) Blaming Israel for being "so obstinate at Lausanne" about the return of Arab refugees and the surrender of "areas taken by force :n excess of what was allocated to them by the United Nations" Hazim questions Israel's presumptu m attitude (which seems to baffle him). He concedes Israel temporary military success but brags that "the Arabs have realized their defects and are advan r.g toward unity." The continued existence of Israel depends on Arab consent and. he says, the Jews had better watch their step ,-.s the Arab Leaguers are getting out their brass knuckles for the second round. Arab problems are mere trifles compared to the catastrophe which has befallen victorious Israel. Hazim reports. All good Arabs "should rejoice that their enemies suffer." Hazim gloats that Jewish reinforcements from the DP camps are now exhausted and the former DP's are beset by new hardships in Israel. He confides that Israel "had an adverse trade balance of 50 million pounds last year. Such a huge deficit for such" a small population cannot be borne for long." Israel is making its last feeble gasps for survival, trying to rally the Diaspora to its aid. according to the Arab sage. He blames Israel for attempting to "uproot" established Jewish residents from Africa. Europe, and even the United States. He adds that despite the "extent of their religious zeal" these Jews have too much sense to obey the Lorelei of the Knesset. Hazim may be a demon at tne old Arab game of chess but he's certainly no poker player. He tipped his hand in this broadcast, almost televising the Arabs' greatest fear: the continued success of the UJA.

Beth Tfilah Activity Solely Religious The distinction of being the first completely air-conditioned synagogue in the Greater Miami area went to Beth Tfilah at 935 Euclid Ave.. Miami Beach, which is pictured above. Designed by Architect Norman Giller. the structure is characterixed by its simple dignity, its clean modern line. The building contains a 700seat synagogue, meeting room, rabbi's study, offices, kitchen facilities and banquet hall. Founded in 1942 as an Orthodox congregation, the Beth Tfilah congregants first held services at 9th St. and Michigan Ave. Later the group moved to 6th St. and Euclid Ave. At that time the site of its present building was purchased. In 1947 Rabbi Joseph E. Rackovsky became spiritual leader of the congregation, and under his leadership, the present house of worship was completed—in time for High Holy Days of that year. Activities of the group are strictly in the religious sphere and include study groups in Mishnas, Ethics, Laws and Customs and the Bible.

I PAGE SEVENTY-EIGHT iptuhflcrldikui FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER g ^ Jews In Sports By HASKELL COHEN (Copyright. 1S49. Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.) New York sport fans were all a twitter the other day due to an exclusive story Jimmy Powers. Daily News sports editor, broke in his widely read column. Powers insisted that Hank Greenberg had purchased the Cleveland Indians. The story goes that the announcement will be made after the current season eomes to a close. Denials were quick in coming from Bill Veeck. Indian prexy. but the opinion grows in Ohio that Veeck is through and that Greenberg will take over. Some claim that Hank bought into the Indians with the understanding he would take over completely once he learned the various aspects involved in running a major league club. He busied himself with farm club duties, scouting, inside office work, etc. in his usual conscientious way until he has become very proficient and is able to take over the reins. The assumption holds that his long-time friend Dave Marx, large toy manufacturer, is backing him in the venture. Hank's father-in-law. Mr. Gimbel, is supposedly not connected financially with the set-up. Another rumor current along Broadwav has Hank and Veeck buying out the N. Y. Giants. This is unlikely since Horace Stoneham owns 51 percent of the Giant stock and is not interested in selling same. Rest assured the Powers' storv has a firm foundation and you will be reading shortly that Greenberg is the new president of the Cleveland Indians. Max Patkin, baseball's newest clown, is still going strong on the trail with over 62 appearances to his credit this season. Max will make himself a tidy sum and is building up a terrific following all over the country and Canada. He recently drew 9.000 fans to a game in Omaha.

The remarkable thing about the Hamilton show is that this club is a member of a Class D league, the lowest classification in organized baseball. The owner of the team wrote Eddie Gottlieb, Patkin"s agent, that the Jewish boy drew at least 1.500 people to the field and was probably responsible for more than 2,000 fans in the final analysis.

The gap between Israel's needs and her ability to pay, as that of any other country of immigration throughout history, will naturally have to be bridged by capital imports and loans for a considerable time to come, as well as by voluntary contributions. The process of attuning Israel's consumption to its earnings is of course painful, and the question of whether it can be evaded by the importation of consumer goods in the form of capital transfer will continue to be debated for years.

^p ,v SEPTEMBER 23, 1949 *JewistiFk*ictirijn PAGE SEVENTY-THREE A Year Of Jewish Activities In Argentina By DR. ANATOLIO LANDMAN "BUENOS AIRES-The greater t of Jewish activities in this nirv in the vear 5709 were Ccted "ward the. young State Kiel which has increased the nWstfee of the Argentine Jewish P mmunitv. comprising more than S souls. Jewish organizations and individuals tried .to help £ Jewish state by giving financial aid. making political efKfS with a view to establishing Somatic relations between ArSna and Israel, and striving for closer economic relations be-een the two countries. As far as the first point is concerned the first United Carnna m for Israel and "Ayuda"— Sncinl arm of the World Jew!& c asft ^JmS 1 ?h2 Sfveproclaimed on May 15 ?948 reached its full development n the following months, which i the first months of 5709. ^though almost half of Argentina's Jewish families did not confute anything to the drive, more than 43,000,000 pesos were reflected, marking a record in the history of Argentine Jewry, which a year before gave only some 6.000.000 pesos to the J.N.F, Palestine Foundation Fund and ^Th?'second United Drive was launched in June, 1949, and despite the fact that a Jewish Communist minority initiated a separate campaign, it is hoped that the results of the present action will be equal to that of the first drive In the political field, the situation was not easy. The presence of some 300,000 Arabs in this country, the opposition of the influential Catholic clergy to the Jewish state, and the fact that Arab countries had voted for Argentina's membership at the Security Council, were powerful odds. Nevertheless, last year in Paris. Argentina voted in the Security Council for Israel's admission "in the U.N., and in March, 1949. Peron granted to the Jewish state de jure recognition. Now. Argentina has a Minister in Tel Aviv—Dr. Pablo Manguel; Israel is represented in this country by Minister Yaacov Tsur. Cordial messages were exchanged TO ALL...

Finally, in the economic field, we are only at the beginning of reciprocal relations. Israel bought in Argentina several thousand tons of meat and other essential products, but had to pay for them in dollars. No Israeli goods were purchased by Argentina. Both the Argentine Israeli Economic Corporation, and the Israeli Commercial Mission in this country are trying to establish barter relations so that Israel should be able to pay with exports for its imports. Anti-Jewish agitation diminished, at least on the surface, during the past year. For the first time since the pro-Fascist revolution of General Uriburu, in 1930, we had a year without any terrorist attempts against Jewish life and property. It is asserted by followers of Peron, that after the last such terrorist act, some 15 months ago, Peron called in ten leaders of the anti-Semitic Alianza Libertadora Nacionalists and told them that they would be held responsible for whatever terrorist acts against Jews were committed. The Arabs, after the recent proIsraeli position of the government, have greatly reduced their anti-Jewish popaganda, while no government official now dares to make an open anti-Jewish statement. Peron and the First Lady attended last year two Jewish meetings—the banquet tendered in their honor by the pro-Peron O.I.A., and the farewell party in honor of Minister to Tel Aviv, Pablo Manguel. On several occasions, the President of the Republic and Mrs. Peron repudiated anti-Semitism. During the last national and TO ALL ... A MOST HAPPY NEW YEAR Mr. & Mrs. Louis London and Family 412 S.

It would be a mistake to say that Jews agree with the politics of the Peronist Party. But they realize that as long as Peron, who has no racial bias, remains the strong man of Argentina, their situation will be fairly secure. The new constitution contains the statement that Argentina does not recognize any racial differences. It also gives an opportunity to foreigners to become citizens after two-years residence, although the executive laws which will translate this stipulation into practice, have not been promulgated. The immigration of Jews to Argentina remained an important issue, although the O.I.A. obtained 1,200 visas, and illegal immigrants could legalize their situation after being freed, according to a personal order of Gen. Peron. Nevertheless it is a fact that the average Jew meets great difficulties in trying to enter the country, which has received many thousands of Italian, Spanish, Slav and even German immigrants. Many Jews think that this is anti-Jewish discrimination.

PAGE SIXTY vJenisti f/crtdfia/n FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23. I949 The United Nations And Israel (Continued from Page 49) lope that the Assembly itself will ealize that its Paris decision, vith its hurried conclusions on he refugees and Jerusalem, was >rejudicial rather than stimulatng to peace negotiations. It is loped at least in Tel Aviv that he Assembly will accept the Veizmann compromise on the ferusalem issue. Beyond that the Vssembly can hardly take any iction on the peace without a re>art from the commission—ex•ept the urgent action recomnended by the Secretariat for inother appropriation to keep the elief program for the refugees :oing. In this tussle with the Assem>ly the State of Israel now has he advantage of membership—a irilliant victory she has added o the solid international status he enjoys through diplomatic ecognition by more than 40 tates. Peace is essential to the young "ewish state now caught in the oils of an over-expanded immi;ration to a fledgling economy. Vt the same time. Israel indiated she will not surrender longerm political gains for shorterm economic advantages. Her >osition at Lausanne is to neiotiate up to the hilt, to meet %  roposals with counter-proposals, o offer fair and equitable so!uions. But if the Arabs prefer to .•ait Israel insists she too can .old out. In short, through an indomit: ble spirit of nationalism, independence, courage and resourceulness. Israel has overcome the lmost insurmountable obstacles %  laced in her path. She has hreaded through the skein of all [he power rivalry and intrigue .•hich attended the Palestine isue in the United Nations. She has been and will continue 0 be subjected to the highest pressure to yield vital interests o the strategic aims of the big %  owers. In Paris it was the famous Security Council subcommittee on sanctions" which tried to deprive her of the Negev. At Lake Success it is now the lifting of the arms embargo on the Middle East which Israel says will rearm the Arabs and force Israel into a costly armaments race. Such a move before a final peace is written is fraught with grave peril in what all agree is the most "sensitive" spot in the cold war struggle. If the big powers and the world wants peace and the Arabs want a prosperous regional U.N. economy in their area, Israel says they will find her ready for both in the highest sense of constructive and creative initiative and cooperation. She will support but not surrender her Biblical destiny to the United Nations, a stand which has earned her the highest regard of most of the United NasJ tions member states. They expressed that regard when they awarded her overwhelming membership in the community of nations at the very moment when she challenged the Assembly decision on Jerusalem. By this unprecedented action the Assembly has in fact defined the relations of the United Nations to its youngest Israeli member: honest 'agreement, honest disagreement and mutual trust and respect. Chiefly responsible for this relationship is Aubrey S. Eban, Israel's chief representative to the U.N. The virtuoso diplomacy and eloquence with its uncanny bent for puncturing the complicated sham which often befuddled already complicated issues established him in the minds of the delegations as a top-ranking statement in the U.N. galaxy. His verbal rapier thrusts slashed through last-ditch efforts in Paris to reshuffle Israel's territorial gains, to deprive her of victories and to keep her from a seat in the family of nations.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FRANKLIN OPTICAL CO. 605 Lincoln Road MIAMI BEACH Sincere Wishes For A HAPPY NEW YEAR Double Protection Awning Co. Israel Ambassador Offers Greetings WASHINGTON. (JTA>—A message of greetings to the Jews of the United States on the occasion of Rosh Hashona was issued here bv Eliahu Elath. Ambassador of Israel, through the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Trie message reads: '•The Jewish year that has just drawn to a close has been marked bv great and inspiring achievements in Israel at the price of untold hardships, and gives promise that the New Year which we usher in with solemnity and pious hope will prove still another important landmark in the establishment of Israel as a free and independent state. •'The war that ended with such a brilliant victory for Israel's young armed forces was followed by our honest and sincere attempts to erase forever the bitterness of such conflicts existing between Israel and her neighbors. The armistice aereements showed | our earnest desire to bridge the i gap and come to closer relations with the Arab states. Our continued efforts to transform those armistice agreements into permanent peace treaties aim at the resumption of normal relations with our neighbors for the benefit of the whole Middle East. "From the first moment of the establishment of our state, the doors of the country were opened wide to admit scores of thousands of Jews finallv coming home. The small trickle at the start grew i.-.to a massive flood that astounded the world, for this represented one of the greatest mass migrations in history. The doors today still remain wide open to all Jews who seek the peace and stability of their own homeland. This homecoming is not the sole responsibility of Jews in Israel; it is the responsibility of Jews every'-1 where, and the great community in the United States which in the past has responded magnificently to the call, must continue to respond in the future until every single one of the immigrants is absorbed into Israel's economy. "Despite both external and internal difficulties, government institutions have consistently developed and there has been given to the State of Israel, through its elected and appointed servants, the true stamp of democracy that is the cherished heritage of the Jewish people and the guiding light of its leaders. "Grave political and economic hardships face the young and tiny State of Israel. The road ahead is full of unrevealed pitfalls. Huge sums of money for capital investments to increase productivity both industrially and agriculturally are needed to absorb the r.ew immigrants into Israel's economy and develop to the full all the resources of our state. Steps Presidents of fire B'nai B'rith Lodges in South Florida get a preview of nation-wide plans ht B'nai B'rith membership drive to be launched October 13.

Mark Silverstein. president of North Shore Lodge: Jerome Adelman. president, Coral Gables Lodge; Irving Shatxman. membership chairman of Miami Beach Lodge: John Kronenfeid president of Sholem Lodge; Bud Cutler, president D i Tropical Lodge; Dr. Herbert Heiden. president of Hollywood Lodge. George J. Talianoff is general chairman of the drive in South Florida whitt will be coordinated by the B'nai B'rith Council here. have been taken to build houses, to found new settlements and to establish new factories. The people of Israel proudly bear a heavy burden today whose rewards will only be apparent in the distant future. Politically much remains to be done to define frontiers and integrate Jerusalem in the state's living structure. As a loyal and constructive member of the United Nations Israel will make its impress on a troubled and uneasy world. Democracy must find its true expression in Israel, a democracy that can contribute to international cooperation and to the wellbeing of all peoples and all nations. "What is unfolding in Israel today is a new social and national creation, the building of a new society, linked by inseparable ties with the Jewish past and its heritage. What began with the Biluim 80 years ago and was demonstrated by the founding of Potah Tiqvah. Gedera, Degania, Nahalal and Negba is now taking place with a hundred fold intensification within the framework of an independent Jewish state. Each new year adds much to that process, a phenomenon of significance not only for the Jewish people but for humanity. "Let us hope that the New Year 5710 will play its part in this tremendous undertaking in Israel and that Jews everywhere will continue to aid and -upport the development of Israel. "I convey to the distinguished Jewish Community in the United States my heartfelt congratulation and best wishes for the New Year. Leshana tova tikatevu!"

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1949 +Jenislh Hvridlii&ri PAGE FIFTY-FIVE 5709 In Jewish History By A. GREEN Off all the history-making events that crowded upon the Republic of Israel durinq the first full calendar year of its existence, the future historian will probably select as the two most outstanding ones the entry of a quarter-million Jewish immigrants into the little country, the qreatest trek in Jewish history, and the establishment of "church-state" relations. While the government proclaimed religious liberty for all the inhabitants, non-Jews as well as Jews. Orthodox Jews clamored for more and more official recognition of their faith as the dominant reli. gion of the state for Sabbath butz galiuth," the "re-assembly observance and kashruth in pubof the exiles." was on in full i Ilc p I ace .i and institutions, and so blast during 5709. It brought the | n A* the new year begins the population of the new-born JewI conflict over the religious quesish state close to a million. It on has not been resolved and created problems, terrific prob!" uch good will on all sides will Jems, problems of housing and be required if 5710 is to see a a temporary peace between Israel and all its Arab neighbors, of an armistice which gave Israel that chance to lay a firm .foundation for its future existence. The great return to their ancient land, of which Jews had dreamt for centuries, the "kibemployment particularly. Jews all over the world, and in America particularly, were called upon for assistance in this heroic effort to re-establish the remnants of martyred European Jewry in the new Jewish republic by the Mediterranean. The problems and the heroic efforts that must be made to overcome them will continue into the new year 5710. The establishment of a temporary peace with the Arabs also left many serious problems of Jew-Arab relations unsolved, chief among them the return of Arab refugees to Israel and the future status of Jerusalem. But as the new year dawns it looks as if the first problem at least, that of the Arab refugees, will soon be straightened out by the admission of 100,000 Arabs and that one important cause for tension between Israel and the Arab countries will be thereby eliminated. The year 5709 also saw the establishment of the first permanent Jewish government in Israel, the election of the first Israeli parliament, and the inauguration of Chaim Weizmann as first President of the Republic, and the choice of David Ben Gurion as Premier, by a coalition of moderately socialist and religious groups. It witnessed the admission of Israel as a member of the United Nations, its recognition as a sovereign state by nearly all the important countries of the world and its declaration of neutrality as between the Western and Eastern blocs of nations. The year commenced with the shadow of the assassination of Count Bernadotte hovering over the new nation and threatening to isolate it from the world community. As the year ended, however, the world community realizing that Israel's intentions were of the most peaceful sort and that it was willing to resolves its differences with its Arab neighbors in a spirt of compromise, took the young republic to its heart. Thus even England, which had inflicted so much suffering upon the new Jewish state, changed its attitude, gave Israel recognition and promised to maintain friendly relations with it in the future. Of the internal problems of Israel, next in importance to the economic problem of absorbing hundreds of thousands of new Jews, of creating new industries and cultivating new agricultural lands, was the religious problem, GREETINGS TO ALL MIAMI PLUMBING SUPPLY CO. 2156 N. W. 27th Avenue MIAMI. FLORIDA S. Halperin Phone 3-4552 Mr. and Mrs. Harry Suffer and Family Extend Their Best Wishes TO ALL FOR A HAPPY NEW YEAR solution. Capital-labor differences in Israel also assumed some importance during the past year. Vitally needed capital investments from abroad, it was said, were being held up because of lack of confidence on the part of profitseeking capitalists in the intentions of Ben Gurion's moderately socialist government and because of the grip on the economy of the country held by Histadruth, the General Federation of Labor. The extreme leftist labor party, Mapam, on the other hand, resented the decree of the government reducing both wages and prices in an effort to curb inflation, and unsuccessfully attempted to call a general protest strike. As the mass-emigration from Europe to Israel began to taper off by the end of the year, Israel began to look forward to a mass emigration from North Africa and other Arab lands. That was beginning to create another serious problem, that of integrating masses of backward Oriental Jews into the life of the modern, Western-minded Jewish community of Israel. All in all, it can be said that the first full year of Israel's existence, while filled with difficulties, even more difficulties than a fledgling state would normally encounter, proved the stability of the new nation, the strength of its will to live and the respectful recognition of that will by the nations of the world.

They lend a hand in securing naturalization papers, maintain a school where English is taught (with two classes in operation and a third planned for the near future) and have a New Neighbor committee which counsels and assists with marketing, housing hunting, job seeking (though strictly speaking the latter is out of its province) and any minuter of oher things. The council also conducts a search and location service which has been instrumental in the reunion of many relatives and friends. The group has established four scholarships at the University of Miami, organized the Alexander Graham Bell School for the Hard of Hearing and operated it until the county took over, and contributes to schools for girls in Paris and Atnens. The Miami office was established about a decade ago. Below is pictured the cheerful waiting room of the office which is at Jia Langford Building.

To most Jews the Jewish calendar is a mvsterious compendium, but in reality it is a simple table of dates which anyone can follow quite easily. The Jewish calendar is actually an indispensable item in everv Jewish household. Without Jewish calendar—or "Luach one is at a complete loss not onlv as to the dates of the Jewish festivals but as to personal observances. The need for a calendar was evident in the dim past of Israel's historv. Although they did not have "a set calendar or table by which to reckon dates, the ancient Hebrews had a system of computing time with the sun and the moon as a basis for the record for the sequence of events. Jewish tradition has it that there is divine authority for the use of the sun and the moon to compute time. Psalms contains the statement: "He appointed the moon for the seasons." While the tribes of Israel were still nomads wandering in the deserts of Arabia they already were concerned abouts the seasons. When the Hebrews settled in Palestine, as an agricultural people, familiarity with the seasons was even more imperative, so the Jewish farmer had to develop some kind of table by which to calculate the seasons of the year. The earliest of such calendars was found in an excavation near the ancient city of Geber. Written in ancient Hebrew script, archeologist have decipered the table to read: "A month of fruit harvest. A month of sowing. A month of after-grass. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL Elect rolux Corporation 172 N. E. 40th Street PHONE 7-7502 A month of flax harvest. A month of barley harvest. A month of everything else. A month of vine pruning. A month of fig harvest. The need for a method of reckoning the months was necessary in computing the dates of the various Hebrew festivals. The fixing of the calendar did not occur until about the first century of the Christian era. The system which prevailed in ancient times as to the setting of the days to observe festivals was not too involved. Men of high repute served as observers atop the higher mountains to watch for the appearance of the new moon. Upon noting the first signs of the narrow crescent, each observer kindled a bonfire on the peak where he was stationed. When the bonfires nearest Jerusalem were noted in the distance, the arrival of the new moon was proclaimed from the Temple area by the blowing of silver trumpets. Then followed the announcement of festivals or holy days within the month, which was the prerogative of the Sanhedrin. the Supreme Court of the Jewish people. The system of notifying the populace of the arrival of the new moon via bonfires was used to inform Jews even outside the limits of Palestine, such as those in Babvlonia. However, the Jews in Egypt. Persia. Greece and Rome "were notified by special messengers who were dispatched from the Holv City to inform the Jews in the Diaspora of the exact dates of the holidays. While the Jews lived in their own land and maintained their autonomy, they were content to carry on their affairs with this informal and simple month-tomonth calendar. However, when Palestine became a Roman province, the conquerors very often interfered with the observance of Jewish laws and customs. They even prevented the Sanhedrin from carrying out its duties and functions. Because of these handicaps. Jewish communities outside of Palestine were left on many occasions in doubt as to the time of festivals and fasts. For example, during the patriarchate of Rabbi Judah I, surnamed "the Holy" (163-193). the Samaritans, in order to confuse the Jews, set up fire-signals at improper times and thus caused the Jews to fall into error with regard to the day of the New Moon. Since the observance of all the holidays was calculated from Rosh Chodesh (New Moon). Rabbi Judah decided to HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL JACK .11 STit i: THE SURFSIDE REALTOR 9513 Harding Avenue PHONE 6-1466 A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL JAFRA, INC. Steel i*rodueta 317 N.

Fourth Street Phone 34)816 Private Terminal Operators and Forwarders abolish the use of fire-signals and employed messengers. Doubts still arose in many instances and the custom was then introduced to add an extra day to the observance of the various festivals. Hence, although the Bible commands that Passover be observed for seven days, it was decided to celebrate the festival for eight days. In this way, it was hoped to correct any miscalculation that might have been made. Incidentally, this system has pievailed up to the present time, although we now have a systematized Hebrew calendar. It was becoming apparent that there was need for a permanent calendar table. One of the first rabbis whose studies helped in the final creation of the Jewisn calendar, as we know it, was Samuel, who was born in Nehardea. Babylonia, about 165 and died there about 257. It was said of him that he was as familiar with the paths of the heavens as he was with the streets of his native city. Besides being a noted rabbi, Samuel possessed a thorough knowledge of medicine as it was known in his times, being especially skillful in the treatment of the eye. He devoted himself to that branch of applied astronomy which deals with calendric science, which he taught to his pupils and colleagues. His astronomical studies of the revolutions of the moon enabled him to predict the beginning of the month as determined in Palestine, and he claimed to be able to remove the necessity of celebrating the extra day of festivals in the Diaspora. He also computed a sixty-year calendar. Samuel was also known by the surname of Yarchina'ah. from the Hebrew "yerech," meaning "month" because of his familiarity with calendric science. Under the patriarchate of Judah the Prince (300-330), astronomical calculations began to be used and the testimony of witnesses regarding the appearance of the New Moon was listened to only as a formality. The idea of utilizing astronomic calculations was viewed with disfavor by some members of the Sanhedrin. especially Rabbi Jose, who communicated with the Jewish communities of Babylonia and Alexandria, urging that they continue to follow the custom of celebrating an extra day on festivals, advice which is still being followed by Orthodox and Conservative Jews but which has been abrogated by the Reform movement. Finally, in the fourth century, the patriarch Hillel the Second, wrote down definite rules and had them adopted by the Jewish communities of the world.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1949 bnisl HwidHam PAGE FORTY-NIr The United Nations and Israel By ALEXANDER GABRIEL (J.T.A. correspondent at the United Nations) LAKE SUCCESS—"We have won the war; now we must win the peace." This slogan which haunted the Allies on the eve of victory in World War II sums up the position of Israel following the collapse of the Arab armies in Palestine. The alternative to a conclusive peace is that an unliquidated war will deteriorate into a cold war between Israel and the Arab states in the same way that it has produced the present cold war between the war-time Allies. The world in general and the United Nations in particular know only too well the fear that a cold war may run out of control into the real thing. Neither the young state of Israel, nor the economically backward Arab countries can afford the uncertainty and the threat of a protracted half peace. At present this half peace has brought to the Middle East freedom from violence, however temporary, through the successful and brilliant conclusion of four armistice agreements. By mandate of the Security Council resolutions in November, Acting Mediator Dr. Ralph J. Bunche, by direct negotiations between Israel and the separate Arab states, hammered out detailed agreement with Egypt, Lebanon, Transjordan and finally Syria, laying the foundation for more hopeful outlook at the deadlocked peace negotiations at Lausanne. Iraq and Saudi Arabia bound themselves by the Jordan and Egyptian accords respectively, while Yemen, too far removed from the area, with no troops in action, automatically lapsed into non-violence. While the agreements differ in territorial and military juxtaposition of forces they all have this in common: all carry identically worded provisos barring the parties from resorting to force in seeking to liquidate their differences. Forces were withdrawn and reduced behind carefully designated neutral zones under the vigilance of United Nations observers. Mixed armistice commissions of the parties were established to negotiate any disputes threatening the truce and to effect virtually unconditional exchange of prisoners of war. But above all the parties bound themselves to abstain from "planned" war, that is any large-scale preparations for resumed hostilities beyond the immediate zones of demilitarization. As summed up by Dr. Bunche in his final report on the agreements to the Security Council: "Each agreement incorporates what amounts to a nonaggression pact between the parties." Reassuring as this pronouncement sounds, it must be remembered that non-aggression pacts are generally signed between friends. But whiie there may be truce and armistice between Israel and the Arabs, there definitely is not and probably cannot be friendship between them until a final peace is written, settling all of the outstanding problems of the peace. Arab leaders even now are using the threat of a "second round" in the bargaining at Lausanne. This difficult task of negotiating the peace has been assigned by the General Assembly to a three-nation Conciliation Commission consisting of the United States, Turkey and France. Their three-fold problem involves the question of boundaries, the Arab refugees and the question of Jerusalem. The question of frontiers, complicated by failure of non-Jewish Palestine to gain the partitionawarded independence, subsided as a burning issue with the Assembly rejection of the Bernadotte report with its award of the Negev and Jerusalem to the Arabs. The city of greater Jerusalem was designated by the Assembly for internationalization under the United Nations, while the lines delineated in the armistice accords are regarded as virtual political decisions. Under them Israel retains all of the Negev but a coastal trip at Gaza which is held by Egypt. Israel holds the fertile area of Galilee. In addition she retains Jerusalem. Haifa, Jaffa and Lydda—all in excess of the original partition decision, but recognizes the de facto control of Jordan in old Jerusalem and non-Jewish Palestine, subject to the disposition of these areas by democratic means. The greatest territorial threat comes to Israel from the Assembly insistence on the surrender of Jerusalem to the United Nations —a threat she hopes to liquidate in the forthcoming Assembly with the famous compromise formula put forth by President Weizmann, placing the control of the Holy Places under the control of a United Nations Commission and safeguarding foreign interests in hospices, shrines and other institutions. Crux of the peace is the 700,000800,000 Arab refugees who fled Palestine. They are taxing the relief resources of the United Nations and pose a genuine economic problem for all the parties.

However, the commission, supported by direct intervention from Washington did insist on Israel's acceptance of some of the refugees as a token of good faith—a demand which Israel is willing to consider but only as part of the terms of an overall peace and in partnership with the other Arab states.

vwinAY. SEPTEMBER 23, 194Q '^ %  Jewisti thrSdUam PAGE SIXTY-FIVE Miami Beach Has A Mikvah Editor's Note: Very few people know that there is in Miami Beach a $35,000 structure which houses a Ritualariam, traditionally known as a Mikvah. We have called upon Rabbi Moses Mescheloff, who was instrumental in forming the Daughters of Israel, the organization which built and maintains the Mikvah, to inform our readers about the structure and its background. As a special service we will send a copy of the pamphlet mentioned in the article, "Jewish Family Life: The Duty of the Woman" by Rabbi Sidney B. Honig, to anyone who writes for one. If you should like to secure a copy, send your request to The Jewish Floridian, P. O. Box 2973, Miami 18. By RABBI MOSES MESCHELOFF "Come right in," the caretaker says graciously. We are at the entrance of a chaste modern structure at 151 Michigan Ave., Miami Beach. The wording above its doors has intrigued us: Daughters Of Israel Ritualarium Who are the "Daughters of Israel?" Obviously they constitute a Jewish organization, but their function and activities are not the subject of blatant publicity. "May we look around?" we ask meekly. What is a "ritualarium?" It is a word strange even to the educated Jew. There is nothing like finding out so we go in. Before we know it we are in the ante room, a large reception room, still unfurnished. Its floor is of terrazzo; its lighting modern; its windows welcome a stream of sunlight. Beyond this room, up a few steps and behind sliding doors, is a waiting room and lounge. The caretaker explains that this too still lacks its necessary furnishings—a few easy chairs, a vanity table, an electric hair dryer, and the like. Past the waiting room is a door leading to the caretaker's quarters, a bedroom apartment in the rear of the one story building. On either side of the waiting room are identical installations,— a large, tiled and sparkling bath room with separate tub and stall shower. Each bathroom leads into a private ritualarium. The ritualarium i* a ritual pool (mikvah) in the center of a bright, tastefully tiled room. A number of slept lead to the bottom of each pool. A railing makes descent easy. The caretaker informs us that the pool is filled before and emptied after each use. It is used by only one individual at a time. So that there be no waiting, two completely independent ritual pools have been constructed within the building. She shows us how simply and quickly the pool is filled with cold jnd hot water. A flick of a switch, and an electric pump empties the pool in a matter of minutes. She lifts an aluminum floor panel and shows how ingeniously the pool is connected with the "Otzar," an adjoining reservatory of rain water, which makes the pool a "kosher mikvah" in accordance with Jewish tradition. Before we leave she gives us a copy of a pamphlet explaining the traditional laws of Jewish family purity, giving the method of observing them properly, and including the regulations for the use of the ritualarium. (See editor's note.) We leave, but not before we have expressed wonderment. "Is this what a 'Mikvah' really is like? We thought it was a relic of the obsolete Dast, an unclean, unattractive community bath house. Why, this is so spotless and appealing. We feel the holiness of this place, as though it were a House of G-d." "It is more than that," the caretaker concludes, "this brings G-d and His blessing into your home. It causes G-d's holy spirit to descend upon Jewish children." The local ritualarium is an evidence of the progressiveness of our community. American Jewry is growing up Half a century ago, Jewish religious interest limited itself to the construction of synagogues, and ish settlement. From the turn of the century American Jewry added to this, philanthropic activity, and the realization of the importance of Jewish education. Religious schools, Talmud Torahs, Yeshivas and All Day schools have blossomed in every major Jewish community. They are the guarantees for the future of the Jewish people. Last in acceptance in these United States was the realization of the need for holiness within the Jewish home. Historically, the Jewish home has always been the sanctuary which made every phase of living holy. Holiest of all was Jewish wedded life. Kiddushin, sanctification. is our word for marriage. It signifies the sublimation of ideal marriage, its separation from the impure, from a degeneration into mere animal lust gratification. Biblical law requires separation between husband and wife during the monthly periods, a separation which ounsmodern scientists and medical men have declared as fundamentally sound and necessary for physical and emotional well being. Laws of abstinence and periodic ritual purification constantly renew the emotional adjustments and temper the desire so that married happiness results from a recurring series of | courtships between husband and wife. Many are the doctors and psychologists who are re-discovering what was always known to our people,—the need for "family purity,"—Taharass Hamishpocho. Where the greatest mental and emotional havoc occur, in the most intimate of human relations, the laws of "Niddah" and "Mikvah," ritual uncleanness and the puriiica and an ever-flowing fountain of happiness. American Jewry is only now beginning to evaluate the need for holiness in the life of each individual. Jewish mass communal activities, and even synagogue worship are not enough. Our present generation is seeine die establishment of "Daughteio of Israel" organizations througnout the country. Ritualariums built in the most modern design, and meeting the most stringent hygienic and esthetic requirements, offer to their communities a promise of new levels of happy wedded life. The educational program in this direction is but beginning. With its acceptance will come the fulfillment of the Jewish mission, to be a "kingdom of priests and a holy nation." the observance of Jewish holy days. The community synagogue lion at the ritualarium, stand as was the sign of an existing Jew-1 a tower of spiritual strength '1 Standing on the steps which lead from the bright, spacious, terazzo-floored lobby to the Mikvah proper is the caretaker, who is opening the convenient sliding doors. The lobby is still bare, but plans are being made by the Daughters of Israel to furnish if in the near future. The entire building is spotlessly clean and ajry, consonant with the purpose for which it was designed. A far cry from the mental picture of an unsanitary communal bath that the word "Mikvah" usually evokes is the spotless private ritual pool shown here. The pale blue tile pool, entered by the stem is filled with a specified combination of hot, cold and rain water, which is emptied after each use by means of a small pump. There are two such installations in the Miami Beach Mikvah. Simple, dignified and thoroughly unpretentious, the Daughters of Israel Ritualarium (Mikvah). constructed in 1944 at a 0i approximately $35,000, is at 151 Michigan Ave., Miami Beacn.ine modern white structure contains a large lobby, pictured Wmn on this page, a hallway, two gleaming tilt bath rooms, two private ritual pools, also pictured on this page, and a caretaker's apartment. The Daughters of Israel, who built and maintain the Ritualarium, was organised in 1941 and consists of approximately 150 members.

During the war the league fought subversive Hitlerite groups which were flourishing in this area. Since the close of the war the office has led a campaign for anti-mask and anticross-burning ordinances. This campaign culminated in the passage of such legislation in Miami, Miami Beach, South Miami. Coral Gables, Miami Shores and five or six other communities throughout the state. The ADL also worked' to eliminate discriminatory advertising in Miami Beach hotels and apartments. Through the league's efforts a ban against discriminatory signs was enacted in Miami Beach in June of this year. Gilbert Balkin is director of the office and Leonard L. Abess is chairman of the advisory board. a Between You and Me 9 By BORIS SMOLAR (Copyright, 1948, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.) L.'SHAN AH TOVAH: The new Jewish year starts with new activities of the reorganized American Zionist Council to check the renewed antiIsrael sentiments in Washington Latest developments seem to indicate that with regard to the territorial aspects of the Palestine issue, the State Department advances more anti-Israel demands than does Britain Indicative of the sentiments in the State Department is perhaps the fact that for the first time in many years the Secretary of State this year did not issue any Rosh Hashona message of greetings to American Jews ... It is obvious that in breaking the tradition carried on by previous Secretaries of State, Secretary Dean Acheson was afraid that anything he would say in a Rosh Hahsona message might antagonize the Arabs The official explanation given by Secretary Acheson was that because of the overwhelming number of requests for statements which he receives, he has had to establish a policy of declining these requests ... He, therefore, felt that if he were to issue a Rosh Hashona message of greetings, his action could provoke resentment on the part of those groups whose requests for statements he has turned down U.N. MOODS: The U.N. General Assembly, which opened its session a few days before Rosh Hashona, will apparently not take up the issue of the staus of Jerusalem before November This is the prevailing feeling among Israel delegates at Lake Success The issue will precipitate a big fight at the Assembly since Israel is determined to have the Jewish section of Jerusalem become an integral part of the Jewish state. The fight will center around discussions of the U.N. Conciliation Commission plan to place Jerusalem under the supervision of a U.N. High Commissioner ... In the meantime Paul A. Porter, American member of the Conciliation Commission, is busy preparing an anti-Isrel atmosphere ... In "off the record" talks he builds up a feeling that Israel is not cooperating as much as the Arabs ... In one of these talks he went so far as to state that "the leaders of Israel have become devoted disciples of the policy of fait accompli" ... He keeps on saying that all "objective" American observers agree that the onus is on Israel for blocking the progress at the Lausanne peace talks And he is spreading the allegation that Arabs left their homes in Palestine because of atrocities by Israel troops All this does not, of course, add to the prestige of the American representation on the Conciliation Commission However, it shows how the wind blows among American officials dealing with the Palestine issue at the United Nations.

The library was established in 1944. when the bureau first opened permanent offices. At that time Mrs. Pearl Krieger donated 5500 in memory of her departed husband. Moses Krieger. Other contributions followed. Mrs. Matilda Ratner had the rooms completely shelved during the war when lumber was rationed and labor was almost unobtainable. Harry Simonhoff has been chairman of the library since its inception. The library now contains over 2000 volumes. For lack of space the library committee has temporarily abandoned plans for expansion; however, it is the opinion of members that the library could be built up to 10,000 volumes very easily. The collection, the bulk of which is in English but which also includes volumes in Hebrew and Yiddish, contains history, fiction, biography, grammars, encyclopaedias and other books of reference, dictionaries, theology, Zionism, poetry, essay, juvenile stories, textbooks. During the period from October, 1948, to May, 1949, 552 books were borrowed by over 400 individuals. The library contains a large quantity of audio-visual material including film slides, projector, sound film, musical and educational recordings. All of these are lent free of charge to organizations for meetings and concerts. The library pursues a policy of free circulation to students, educators and the general public.

Members of Congress who were "shocked and sickened" over the Nazi death camps in 1945. seemed to have completely recovered their equilibrium and health in 1949. Perhaps we cannot visualize how four years could erase from the minds of many legislators the traumatic memories of visits to Buchenwald and Belsen and Dachau. But members of Congress who shed tears over the displaced persons and the mass murder of Jews seemed to have forgotten this year as they rallied to oppose admission to the U.S. of death camp survivors.

The obvious barriers to Jews in the law—which favors farmers and Baltic peoples —were denounced by Earl G. Harrison, former U.S. Commissioner of Immigration and Naturalization. Harrison, who should be an authority on DP laws, urged immediate elimination of antiSemitic restrictions. He said, "to do less than this would seem to indicate that one piece of Hitler's iniquitous philosophy of racism and discrimination has been adopted here." A bill to amend the DP law was introduced in the House by Chairman Emanuel Celler of the House Judiciary Committee. It was eventually passed by the House after the Immigration Subcommittee, led bv its chairman, Rep. Francis E. Walter, of Pennsylvania, doctored the measure in such a way as to make it almost unpalatable to the Jewish people and to the Jewish Congressman who was its author. Gen. Wladyslaw Anders' Polish army, which has many antiSemites in its ranks (some volunteered to fight against Israel out of sheer hatred for the Jews) would be imported to the U.S. under a special provision written into the House-approved bill. Gen. Anders and his staff have organized aid and active guidance to Polish pogromists. according to Dr. Emil Sommerstein. former chairman of the Jewish Central Committee of Poland. "Anyone who advocated or assisted in persecutions of others for race, religion, or national origin." would be barred from the U.S.. according to the bill. But the Walter subcommittee added specifications which would admit not only Gen. Anders' 18.000 Jewbaiters, but fifty percent of the large German quota would be made available to "Ethnic Germans." These are Germans who were sent to Danzig and the Czech Sudetenland and elsewhere in Eastern Europe by Hitler. When World War II opened they were the fifth columnists. Under the terms of the Potsdam Declaration they were kicked out of the countries they betrayed and shipped back to Germany. TO ALL ...

Thus, a Sudeten German farmer would get to the U.S. quicker than a Jewish tailor who somehow survived the death camps. The victims of fascism received less consideration in the House bill than the fascists themselves. Jewish organizations were displeased but termed the bill the best they could expect to get through. But little did anyone on Capitol Hill suspect that Sen. Pat McCarran of Nevada would soon single-handedly block all efforts to pass the measure in the Senate. McCarran said that allegations that the old law discriminated against Jews was a "despicable charge, wholly at variance with the facts." Shocking attacks on Jewish displaced persons bv Rep. Ed Gossett, of Texas, in theHouse might have served as a warning to what was to happen in the Senate. McCarran was to show, however, that he had the power! while Gosset
