Tishri 4. 5715
The Hebrew New Year 5715
We enter the Hebrew Year 5715 with anxiety
for the past, contemplation of the present and
hope in the future. Our hearts are made heavy
by many significant occurrences during the
twelve-month period now concluded. But with
what is to be ever as a prospect before us, we
are engaged at the advent of these Holy Days
in consideration of modes that may be adopted
by the American Jewish community generally
for the purpose of meeting its tomorrow most
effectively.
The year that followed Rosh Hashona 5714
brought much travail to the Jewish soul. The
passage of considerably less than a decade
can be counted on the calendar since the re-
birth of the Jewish State an experience that,
in itself, has had a profound effect on world
Jewry. One can hardly conceive of a signifi-
cant examination of our destiny without taking
into account the fortune of that small land. This
is not to say that our communal or national im-
pulses are inextricably bound to those of Israel.
But it must be generally recognizable that
our identification with Judaism and its tradi-
tions inevitably leads us to be identified with
the Jewish State, for Israel represents the con-
clusion of a two-thousand-year long dream
the envisioned fulfillment of which has kept our
people alive through centuries of dispersion
over the face of the earth. Its fate during the
past twelve-month period therefore touches the
sensibility of each one of us; we feel the
anguish it suffered during 5714 as surely as if
that anguish were the result of our most inti-
mate experience.
Hardly had the past Hebrew year begun,
when Israel was beset, along its borders with
guns and in the political arena of the United
Nations with words, by a host of enemies
whose failure to recognize that small people's
independence and integrity is merely an as-
pect of their larger and undisguised program to
destroy the Jewish State. The passing months
brought little better fortune. International criti-
cism of Israel, charges of retaliation against
unending Arab border raids and provocation
by infiltrees, as well as the recent decision by
major Western powers to arm its unfriendly
neighbors, have all served to form the pattern
of Jewish State history during the past Hebrew
Year 5714.
But somewhere, here, there is a lesson for
the American Jewish community to learn. In
the face of these often disheartening occur-
rences. Israel's record of progress and achieve-
ment since its establishment by UN decree less
than a decade ago stands as a shining exam-
ple to be emulated. This, in itself duplicates
the tale of Jewish experience through two mil-
lenia of exile, during which spiritual, intelleo-
tual and, subsequently, material accomplish-
ment was made in a world that, in turn, made
of the Jew an outcast.
It is for us. too, therefore, to strive despite
obstacles and to achieve despite adversity. And
if our successes in this regard are to result from
our spiritual identification with Israel, such
identification must be complete in the sense that
it seeks no abbreviated methods. The course
of a new nation must, of necessity, be piloted
by material considerations. But where, under
these circumstances, energies are also directed
in spiritual and cultural endeavor, there
achievement is assured.
The High Holy Days represent a particularly
good time for us, as Jews, to examine our per-
sonal expenditure of energy and the varied
courses which these energies chose during the
i
preceding year. Have we, like the Start of
Israel the ascendant achievement in our
time of Judaism end its heritage borne in
mind the need to accommodate our spiritual
values even as we were intent on gratifying
our material needs? At the moment when, dur-
ing our prayers, we ask the awesome question
'Who shall live; Who shall die?'' are we mere-
ly being rhetorical, or do we indeed express
concern for survival?
It seems to us that this i a pivotal problem
with which the individual Jew must cope at
Rosh Hashona. For the nature of survival is.
itself, a twofold matter. There is no doubt that
previous generations of Jews, on asking this
question durinq their High Holy Day prayers, j
had in mind physical survival living through
the coming twelve-month period and the next
Rosh Hashona without succumbing to disease,
fire or sword. But it must also be apparent that
this significant prayer considers the pregres-
sion of a spiritual continuum and the survival
Of Judaism, while fearfully toying with an awe-
some and possible alternative the evolution
by circumstances in exile of a faceless Jewish I
society in which the Jew, as Jew, might perish. |
We, of the American Jewish community. I
hardly conceive of ourselves as exiles and
rightly so. Our history in the United States, as'
the Tercentenary celebration of Jewish settle-
ment here emphasizes, has been a glorious
one. Since the landing in what was then New
Amsterdam of twenty-three Jewish refugees
from religious persecution, our contributions, in
peace and war, to the achievement of inde-
pendence and the upbuilding of this nation
have been legion. It has, at the same time,
been our exceedinq fortune to reap the benefits
of a democratic society which we helped forge.
We have been privileged to practice the right
of worshipping a* we please and to entertain
those moral values which best reflect the con-'
science of our Jewish tradition.
It is therefore clear to us that we need be'
confronted by no such dilemma as burdened;
other generations of Jews in other places dur |
ing Rosh Hashona when, with trepidation, they'
intoned the prayer: "Who shall live; Who shall
die?" Our choice is clear. While no assur-
ance of physical survival can be offered us, it
is entirely within the province of our free will
to determine the course of our spiritual future.
Unhampered by the fear that the Jewish com-
munity may be forced to lose its identity, we
have only ourselves to point to as the pilot of
its destiny.
The significance of this awesome question
must, in this regard, be heiqhtened for us im-
measurably, and Rosh Hashona in America
must become a time of rcdedication to the prin-
ciples of Jewish moral value. For the lifeblood
of our existence has always been and must ie-
main our close association with those ideals
IT SEEMS TO ME PARTICULARLY SIGNIFICANT (
Hashona should have been immediately preceded b> a di,Jr*
Evanaton that the rise of the present State of Israel do, not coniiJ'
fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. Meeting there a shirt v,hile 0 *
utea t" the World Council of Churches passed a resolution reita
the rccmergence of the Jewish State as coming within the scom
,;,,rl- Providence." "'
Certainly, one can find more important things to o.n-ickr es>
|j on the occasion of the High Holy Days, than such a deu-ion by at
representing world Christianity. But the role that the antecedent?!!
ihi- l>o have assumed in recent years, makes of their decision a downright!
worth analyzing and remarking upon.
The tart is that the most orthodox Christian element-, those :deo||
gicallv closest to traditional Romanism, offered littl. .istance mj!
brought even less pressure to bear on the vast areas i i npinion i
control when the creation of a Jewish State was a pivotal issue mi
mil Forties of the last decade. This represents about thi most p.)Sitjl
thing that can be said for them, as well as for their activities in wl

If the Jews have found themselves better situated since

which begU to assume as essential for an evolving democratic :
the doctrine of separation of Church and State.

What many relatively orthodox Churches, Including the Ro

by doctrines oi the New Testament.
This, however, fell far short of supporting the concept of sal

In I. indeed, the suffering experienced by them during these two taj

implicit in the World Council of Churches resolution lie- precbdjlj
an extension of that reasoning.
The Church will simply never admit the error of it- ways i

Kabbinical Association therefore
applauds everything done for the
strengthening of Jewish faith andJ
observance. It looks with joy ;it the
creation of new synagogues to
serve new areas in ourexpanding '
community.
However, synagogues must serve !
the unsatisfied needs of the area '
in which they arc established.
Where such needs are amply taken '
care of by existing synagogues
there is no need for duplication of
service. Religious services which
are set up for the High Holy Days
only, for private gain or for the
satisfaction of an individual, draw
away financial, spiritual and lead-
ership aid from such congregations
as serve that area all year long.
We again urge the Jews of our
community to make this season the
occasion for affiliation with a syna-
gogue, center or temple which will
be ready and able to se^ve them
and their families through the com-
ing years.
To one and all we wish a God
blessed and inspired new year.

In What Way Do Synagogues and
Othor Organiiations Bonofit?
Last year the Bureau published a brochure,
"What the Bureau of Jewish Education does for
Your School," which was distributed to all congre-

tail: placement of Hebrew and Sunday school
teachers; teacher training for all teachers with a
program specially prepared to meet needs and de-
ficiencies determined by observation in the
schools; publication of educational Bulletins, not
only for all holidays, but a Curriculum Guide, ped-

The TUCommittee and Miai
By LEO ROBINSON,
Pres.dent, Greater Mi.mi Chapter, American
Jewish Committee
Whet it the American Jewith Committee?
To guard the ramparts of freedom, to prevent
the recurrence of disaster- that BO often claim
Jewi a- their first victims, to protect the Civil and
religious right! of Jews in America ROd through-
out the world are the goals of the American Jew-
l-h Committee.
For a turbulent half-century this mission has
moved forward on a global front.
Overseas two world wars imposed staggering
tasks In behalf of Jewish survivors, AJC entered
into negotiation and litigation, pressing for restitu-
tion of their material loasea; recovery of their citi-
hip right*; rehabilitation of thcis decimated
communities .
The Committee

en for the vk
tim- "i ..r
Nazism Din
the p.ist decade
impelled by hi-
tory's grim les-
son that tyranny
knows no t
o f containment,
AJC has been in
the vanguard of
the new move-
ment for inter-
national protec-
tion 0f h uman
rights
During l h c- iM Robinson
fifty years, the
Committee h -
developed in the I'nited States a unique program
to surmount bigotry and discrimination, enlisting
the forces of education, science, law and commu-
nity action in a coordinated assault.
What are the sourcet of AJC support?
Prom the daj of it- founding in 1906. the Com-
mittee's following consisted of America's fore-
most Jew- It- creator- included the renowned
Constitutional lawyer, Louis Marshall; four of
Amei test philanthropists, Jacob Schiff,
tdolph Lew sohn Felix Warl Julius Rosen
Julian Mack ol Chicago Max Slasi of
San Fi ncisco Mayer Sulzberger ol Philadelphia
Samuel Grei nbaum of New York; and loeh
distinguished public servants .- Oscar S Straus,
' S Secretarj ol Commerce and Ambassador to
Turkej and Cyrus Adler, Assistant Secretarj of the
Smithsonian Institution
These min and a host Of others endowed the
young organization with their integrit) and broad-
gauged vision The) gave unstmtingl> of their ener-
gies and established a tradition ol devoted per-
sonal service that i- carried forward today by their
successors Among the Committees present lead-
ers are Senator Herbert H Lehran, Judge Joseph
M Proskauer, Jacob Blaustem and Irving M En-
gel
From a founding circle ol fifty, the member-
ship expanded to its present roster of
000 citizens from all parts of lhe L- *
Their views are as diverse as lhr pr()(' *,
industrial pursuiLs. Their religius ^^7*4
orthodox, Conservative and Reform The I
publicans and Democrats, liberals and *
tives. Zionists and non-Zionists But all ch.
convictions: that Jews have a vital Mane H'
racy; that the traditions of Judaism and Ajr
ism are mutually enriching; and that each*
bears an obligation to serve his eosniS
his country.
With more than forty chapters in the
States, and offices in Europe and South
the Committee's reputation and impact are
wide.
Funds for AJC are raised by the Joint L_
Appeal, the exclusive fund raising agency foi
and AJC, which conducts campaigns in t0.
New York and Chicago, and from the welfan>t
of other communities
In what way does AJC countribute to the,
of civil liberties nationally?
One of the most difficult questions
the cold war is how to"counter Communism st
of infiltration and subversion while at the i
time preserving the Bill of Bights i
tional security is safeguarded, neither civil I
nor America itself will long survive Con
if honest dissent is confused with conspincjj
due process stripped from law. we will hei
dering our liberties through ill-conceived
grot, rather than reinforcing them against)
munist assault.
To encourage rational and dispassiucittj
cussion of this complex problem, the Cot
sponsored a two-year study which was
in 1954: "American Security and
Maurice J. Goldbloom.
This analysis embraces such critical i
standards and procedures for government I
security programs, the effectiveness of Fti
state and local legislation to cope with i
the Fifth Amendment, teachers and Cob
Because this work delves beyond shib
has received serious consideration Varietal
gressional committees have reviewed its
mendations and have invited the Comminert|
timony on specific proposals to devise fair
of procedure for investigatum-
Sinct civil liberties thrive onl] when i
vigorously exercised. AJC ha- n cognized
portance of resisting cultural vicilantes
against schools, libraries. IbDOklti res, the|
tion pictures, radio, television and all
hides through which man tearchet for 11
understanding of his fellow man These
pointed censors harm the nation by pn
conformity, attempting to stifle the div
thought and expression which Jivei vitaHrj
lesihency to our way of life.
To counteract such moves, the Cotntt
operates with the American Library
the American Book Publisher- Council, tke]
ti-.nal FCducation Association, the League oil
en Voters, the Fund for the Republic aadt
responsible agencies engaged in defa
Bill of Rights
While regarding as laudable the aim oil
ing about religion in the public schools. A*

Veterans Administration. This has aided in main-
taining high standards and every one of the gradu-
ate students taking the Florida State Board Prac
tical Nurse Licensure Examination has passed
successfully.
Since facilities of the School are limited, stu-
dents are carefully selected and individual atten-
tion is given to all student nurses during the one-
year program. The entire facilities of the hospital
and community are used in the superior educa-
tional program, which is headed by Mrs. Carmen
P, Ross, R.N., M.A.. as Director of Education. Many
Women Auxiliary members have volunteered their
services and participated in the school program on
various committees and also supervise the library.
But what else do the Pink Ladies of the
Women's Auxiliary do? Volunteers in the Social
Service Department call on service patients and
help them in any way they are asked, with a
warmth of heart that only comes from wanting to
give of their time and talents in service to others.
Whether it is providing layettes for less for-
tunate babies (funds used are from the Babies
Alumnae of Mount Sinai Hospital), or the many
wonderful needed services provided by Remem-
brance Fund money, such as slippers and toiletries
when needed, a brace for an elderly man who could
not walk at all without such support it is heart-
warming to those giving these services, and those
receiving it. Letters are written, errands run,
books and papers are read to patients. Most im-
portant of all. Pink Ladies bring a feeling of cheer-
fulness into the patients' rooms a feeling of
being thought of and cared for in an extra special
way.
Auxiliary Volunteers do many other things, too.
They help feed patients, wheel them outdoors to
enjoy the beautiful gardens surrounding the hos-
pital and the wonderful Florida sunshine and cli-
mate. They assist the nurse on the floor in the
capacity of Nurse Aides. Every day, library volun-
teers wheel the Bookmobile to all patients who may
select any type of reading at no cost to the patient.
. Library service, plus the gaily decorated Hobby
Therapy Cart, manned by volunteers who teach
service patients how to make various articles, are
two of the Auxiliary services contributing most to
the building of morale.
We could go on and on. telling of the work of
the Patients' Hospitality Committee who decorate
the patients' food trays with some memento per-
taining to every national holiday or religious festi-
val, or the Nurses' Welfare Committee which has
as its goal the improvement of the social and physi-
cal welfare of the nursing staff and the internes.
Or we could tell about the Gift Shop filled to the
brim with beautiful and unusual gifts, or the Snack
Bar with its good food and personalized service.
Money couldn't buy what the Pink Ladies of the
Women's Auxiliary of Mount Sinai Hospital give
out of a spirit of generosity. Devotion, patience,
cheerfulness and kindness are not bought they
are given from the heart by the members of the
Women's Auxiliary in service to Mount Sinai Hos-
pital and their community.

Pitals tu approximately 440,000 patients,

0.000 "'''' day- care were on a free basis.
Previously planned expansion continued to
show results in 1953. In Detroit, for the first time,
a hospital was opened up under Jewish auspices.
In Toronto and Providence new institutions were
erected in 1953 to replace old, inadequate facil-
ities. In other major cities, services were increased
by adding new wings or other facilities to existing
institutions or by remodelling old ones.
Family Agoncios Shift Emphasis
With the continued decline of immigrant case-
loads, as a result of shrinking immigration, Jewish
family agencies have been shifting their emphasis
to meet moderate income, middle class needs.
These center mainly on marital problems, parent
child relations and other areas of emotional stress
where trained counselors can help root out prob-
lems and overcome difficulties.
With continuing integration of programs for
the aged, family agencies are also finding them-
selves increasingly involved in programs for the
aged who are not residents of institutions but who
are able to benefit from planned activities.
Statistics of 67 family agencies, reporting for
both 1952 and 1953, show that approximately 45,000
cases were served in 1953, a slight increase over
the previous year. There was a continued decrease
reported in financial assistance given by family
service agencies. This was due largely to the dimin-
ishing numbers of refugees being cared for and
the changing nature of the caseloads.
While the decline was almost 5 per cent, it
still amounted to approximately SI.500,000. In addi-
tion to this, the New York Association for New
Americans gave out approximately $665,000 in
financial aid, a figure which was less than half of
the previous year's expenditures.
Child Cart Resumes Down-Trend
The number of admissions to Jewish child care
agencies in 1953 resumed the downward trend
which has been the experience in the post-war
period. This downward trend was interrupted only
in 1952 when a sharp rise took place. Some 52
agencies reporting for both 1953 and 1952. indi-
cated a drop of approximately 8 per cent in the
number of admissions in 1953.
The total number of children under care of
these agencies during 1953 was over 7.000. More
than two Iifths of these children were cared for in
foster homes, another one-third in institutions and
the remainder in the homes of parents or rela-
tives. While admissions had dropped in 1953 by 8
per cent, the total number of children under care
the same year decreased by only 4 per cent.
Expand Treatment Programs
In child care as in other areas of service, ef-
forts have been made to provide more specialiapd
services to meet needs which have not been ade-
quately met in the past. In child care, programs
are being shaped to treat the more seriously dis-
turbed child through the use of residential treat-
ment units, specialized group foster homes and
other pilot treatment centers. The results of these
efforts will undoubtedly determine future develop-
ments in child care services.
The Yearbook of Jewish Social Services will be
ready for distribution in July to CJFWF member
agencies and to all Jewish health and welfare serv-
ice organizations.

climate in the community for more intensive Jew-

What were its major accomplishments
during the past year?
The culmination of many years of intensive
Bureau effort came to fruition this year when the
Bureau joined hand with the University of Miami
in sponsoring evening courses in Hebrew. Hebrew
Civilization, and the Old Testament at the Bureau
building, granting full college credits for such
cour>e- This action, in effecj. made the Bureau an
off-campus annex of the I'niversity for several
courses The Bureau, through selected scholarship
grants, made it possible for a number of Sunday
school teachers to so enrich their teaching knowl-
a- to make them eligible for Sunday school
certification in the Jewish schools, and made it
possible for them to extend their college training
toward a Bechelor's degree with religious educa-
tion ma
The University of Miami has concretized this
libility of a Bachelor's degree in Religious Edu-
cation by tIn- publication of a special bulletin in
which the courses necessary are carefully outlined.
The brochure underlines the "national need for
trained clergymen, Rabbis, directors of religious
religious day ami afternoon school
educational assistance, and church seen-
taries." and extend- th.,nks to the Bureau for its
ancc in preparing the plan.
A major accomplishment of the Bureau last
..- the publication of a "Curriculum Guide

the then Secretary of State, Philander C. Knox. This letter is prob-
ably the only official State Department record in existence which,
by way of inference, links the United States of America to Manasseh,
one of the lost tribes of Israel.
The facts which the State Department booklet reveals on the
origin, development and adoption of the Great Seal are intriguing
The Bible and the ancient history of Israel are shown to be the
leitmotif in the design of the Seal.
The Declaration of Independence was signed about two o'clock
in the afternoon of July 4, 1776. In order to complete the evidences
of the independence of the United States, the Continental Congro",
right after dinner that afternoon, set itself to the task of adopting
an official seal of sovereignty for the new nation.
The Congress "Resolved. That Dr. Franklin. Mr. J Adams and
Mr. Jefferson be a committee to prepare a device for the Seal of the
United States of America."
From the records of these three pillars of American freedom
and from other historical notes, it is known that the first design
submitted by the committee for the reverse side of the Seal showed
"Pharaoh sitting in an open chariot. ;i crown on his head and a IWOrd
in his hand passing through the divided w..ttt- of the Red Sea in
pursuit of the Israelites; rays from a pillar of fire in the cloud, ex-
pressive of the divine presence and command, beaming on llosei
who stands on the shore and extending his hand over the sea causes
it to overwhelm Pharaoh "
John Adams, writing to his wife on August 14, 1776. related
that "Dr. Franklin proposes a device for the seal: Moses lifting up
his hand and dividing the Red Sea, and Pharaoh in his chariot over-
whelmed with Hie waters. The motto: 'Rebellion to tyrants is obedi-
ence to God.' Mr. Jefferson proposed the children of Israel in the
wilderness, led by a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night."
These Biblical symbols, recalling the history of the Exodus,
were actually desired, proposed and submitted by Benjamin Frank-
lin, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson for approval by the Conti-
nental Congress for the official Seal of the United Estates, Other
Biblical symbols, also linked with Egypt and Israel, were later to
take precedence over the first design submitted, but the first teal
was never rejected.
The record, of course, remains. Benjamin Franklin's notes on
the first design of the Seal read as follow-:
"Moses standing on the shore, and extending his hand over the
sea, thereby causing the same to overwhelm Pharaoh who is sitting
in an open chariot, a crown on his head and a sword in his hand.
Rays from a pillar of fire in the clouds reaching to Moses to exprt^
that he acts by command of the Deity. Motto: Rebellion to tyrants
is obedience to God."
Thomas Jefferson's record reads: "Pharaoh sitting in an open
chariot, a crown on his head and a sword in his hand passing thro'
the divided waters of the Red Sea in pursuit of the Israelites: rays
form a pillar of fire in the cloud, expressive of the divine presence
and command, reaching to Moses who stands on the shore and, ex-
tending his hand over the Sea, causes it to overwhelm Pharaoh.
Motto: Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God."
In recognition of the philosophic and historic identification of
the Jewish people with the development of American independence,
as well as its destiny, The Jewish Floridian opens the pages of its
Rosh Hashona Edition, 5715, to the American sceneto the achieve-
ment and the turbulence of the past Hebrew year, to the recollection
of Jewish participation in the progress of the United States politi-
cally, economically and culturally, to the Tercentenary of settlement
here in 1654.

depicting the arrival of the first group of Jews in New Amsterdam in Sep.,
1B54 These Jewish settlers, wanderers in search of freedom had caught u glimpMaf|
goal'in this little Dutch village between the wilderness and the sea. And they were
mined to reach that goal, step by step.
By SYLVIA STORCH
\t just about this time 300 years ago. the first
group of Jewish settlers, a little band of 23 pil
grims, landed in this country, in what ll now New
York They came, as had so many of the settlers
before them, and as were so many to come after
them, in search of freedom, the freedom to live
and to h\e meant to live as Jews.
Nobody dreamed then how mighty a country
the little COloniea were to become. Nobody dream-
ed either, and too few even today know, how inex
tricably bound up with the country"s rise to great-
iii .. over the next three centuries the Jews in
America were to DC
In the early days, they were in the forefront
of the fight for freedom They have since fought
and died in every war in which the United State,
has engaged. They helped- clear the wilderness
and chart the seas for trade routes. They have
built entire industries and helped develop cities,
great and small.
In every field of culture the halls of fame echo
with the names of Jewish Americans in science,
in literature, drama, music and the other arts.
They have won Nobel Prizes and Pulitzer Prizes
They have healed the nation's sick and helped the
needy They have helped found and supported
great universities and Jewish institutions of learn-
ing. They have sat in legislatures and served as
Supreme Court Justices
And throughout the three hundred years of their
participation in the growth of the I'nited Slates,
they haw struggled to gain and uphold the free-
doms which are the hallmark of our democracy
and the hope of freedom-loving men all over
These things they have done, bulwarked by their
convictions, traditions and heritage as Jews, in DO
narmw sectarian spirit

the United States, the largest Jewish community
in the world Along with their fellow Americans,

These were the thoughts ol American Jewish
leaders who convened some time ago to consider
how best to celebrate the sooth anniversary of
the first Jewish group settlement What better
time, they felt, to realize and appreciate the con-
tributions o| (he Jews t American life, to Judaism
and Jewish welfare, and to study how t01

v ready to build an actual synagogue. The con-
egation itself, also known as the Spanish and
brtugue>e Synagogue, thrives to this day.
There were few other places in the world where
tws could thus openly fight for their rights. Yet
I their day-to-day struggle for them, it is doubtful
pat any of these stalwart settlers had any sense
[ destiny or any inkling that this land was to be-
kpte a testing ground for the emancipation of
L*s everywhere.
Meanwhile, a small but steady trickle of Jews
Lpt coming to the colonies. By the time of the
tvolution in 1776, they were active In every
Jia-i' ot colonial life: as businessmen, farmers,
Iborer.-. tradesmen, doctors, bankers, shipowners.
^ere were Jews in the colonial militia, and the
al they brought to the fight for independence
. strengthened by their experiences in overcom-
the early disabilities imposed upon them as
rs.
The stories of the great Jewish patriots of the
(tvolution are by now familiar. Haym Solomon,
|e Polish immigrant who came to America as a
puns man and soon became a successful broker
id commission merchant, helped to raise money
lr the Revolution. The Gratz brothers, who con-
victed extensive trade between the colonies and
farthest outposts, helped keep the army in
Ipplies. Isaac Franks served under Washington.
rancis Salvador was one of the early martyrs in
phting in the South. There were many, many
er Jew in this first fight for American freedom.
The eyes of the world were on America, scan-
ng the bold Constitution and studying the un-
ecedent' right- of citizenship. In the separate states
pre ma .i continual drive to implement the liber-
i grant. I bj the Constitution. The most striking
^ttle for Jewish religious freedom occurred in
mland] where Thomas Kennedy, a Protestant.
Induced the Jew Bill," and fought for it un-
Iterniptcdly for many years, until it was DMMd
1826
Al the I oundaries of the country widened, the
pmigrant- kept coming. Many arrived after the
oleonic Wars, many after the revolutions of
. many more because of Russian pogroms;
as in our own day, some fleeing Hitler per-
ditions were admitted, within quota limits, to
United States. Along with other pioneers,
pushed the frontiers to the Midwest, Texas,
ornia, Alaska.
Reaction in Europe to the collapse of the Revo-
lutions of 1848 in Germany and other European
countries brought a stream of intellectual Jewish
immigrants cultivated men, professionals and
scholars who had devoted their lives to freedom
andnow sought political asylum in America Pre-
occupied here as in the old country with ideas,
they stimulated educational, religious and philan-
thropic movements and made a strong impact on
the cultural lives of their communities.
Among the new immigrants was Isaac Mayer
Wile, v.h., came from Bohemia in 1848 and in the
ensuing decades became the leader of Reform
Judaism in America. The emergence of Reform
Judaism led to the crystallization of the Orthodox
and Conservative groups as they, too, sought to
adjust their Judaism to the American scene. Un-
der Wise, the Reform movement gained signifi-
cance, with many dynamic younger Rabbis rallying
around him. The first Reform congregation in the
U.S. was formed in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1854.
The fact that American Jews were sharply di-
vided during the Civil War is in itself an indication
of their integration into American life. On both
sides there were Jews in positions of prominence,
among Lincoln's staunchest supporters, among
John Brown's men, in Jefferson Davis' cabinet.
There were multiple enlistments from individual
Jewish families on both sides. And fn this war the
law was amended to permit Jewish soldiers to be
served by Jewish chaplains in the Union Armies.
In 1880, there were about 230,000 Jews in the
United States. In the next 50 years more than
2,000,000- Jews
entered the
4. country. When
Russia unleashed
a savage reign of
terror on the al-
ready repressed
and segregated
Jews, many fled,
persecuted, pov-
erty-stricken im-
migrants seeking
a new and free
life. A new fron-
tier was added
the sweatshop.
Their problems stirred the imagination and com-
passion of American Jews like F.mman Lazarus,
whose poem is imprinted on the Statue of Liberty;
of Henrietta Szold, who became one of the great
humanitarians; of Lillian D. Wald, who started a
new era of social work. Their problems provoked
the energies of men like Sidney Hillman. himself
an immigrant, to found great trade unions in this
country.
Through their unions, the immigrants managed
to combat the intolerable sweatshop conditions in
the great garment industries, where mass produc-
tion of men's, women's and children's clothing has
been developed on a scale and at a price nowhere
approximated. In few other industries have the
workers played so vital a role in the evolution of
management, us well U labor techniques.
As a result of the industry wide strike in 1910,
when Louis I). Brandeis served as impartial chair-
man, they developed machinery for negotiation,
conciliation and arbitration within the industry
itself. The Amalgamated Clothing Workers and
the International Ladies Garment Worker's Union
have broadened the concept of union activities to
include health, education and welfare programs
which have become a model and a stimulus for
other unions.

Among the silver ornaments for the decoration

the exquisite artistry ol these silver Rimonim has
seldom been equalled.
Two charity boxes, affixed to two columns at
the entrance to the Synagogue, were a gift from
the Spanish Portuguese Congregation in Bevis

sent a clock, which

Barney Street on
the the North side
of the Synagogue. Many theories have been ad-
vanced as to the purpose of this underground pas-
sage. The most plausible explanation is that the
early settlers in Newport, who were of Spanish-
Portuguese stock, wished to have a symbol which
would serve as a reminder to their children of the
persecution their forebears had endured during
the Inquisition. At the same time they would
learn to value and appreciate the freedom they
enjoyed in America. Underground passages were
a feature of Jewish life in Spain and Portugal. The
Jews, who were not allowed to worship publicly
during the Inquisition, gathered for services in
cellars and in private homes. Underground tun-
nels were dug in order to escape, should the serv-
ices be disturbed by the approach of the Inqui.si-
tors.
George Washington visited Newport on several
occasions. In 1781. he addressed the Rhode Island
Assembly from the pulpit in the Synagogue. In
1790, he was the recipient of an address by Moses
Seixas. the warden of the Synagogue. In reply,
George Washington sent the famous letter "To the
Hebrew Congregation in Newport. Rhode Island."
In this letter. Washington stated: "For happily the
Government of the United States, which gives to
bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance,
requires only that they who live under its protec-
tion should demean themselves as good citizens in
giving it on all occasions their effectual support."
A facsimile of this historic document is exhibited
on the West wall of the Synagogue. The original,
which is owned by the Morris Morgenstern Founda-
tion, was displayed in recent years on the Freedom
Train, and will be shown this December at the
hi-torical exhibit of the American Jewish Tercen-
tenary at the Jewish Museum of the Jewish The-

first in the Palestine dispute
This was the omen. But if there were any
doubts that the Soviets intended to back the Arabs
from now on, it would seem to have been set at
rest by their second veto in the Suez Canal case.
During February, Israel brought the continuing
Egyptian blockade there once again to the atten-
tion of the Security Council, and the Soviets actual-
ly vetoed a resolution which merely referred to a
previous resolution ordering the Egyptians to de-
sist and on which they had abstained.
Meanwhile the Secretary General had given
up his desultory efforts to convoke a conference
between Jordan and Israel as he had to do accord-
ing to the armistice agreement. At first. Jordan
had been evasive and then simply refused point
blank to honor its obligations under Article 12.
Thus, the Arab State had. in effect, torn up the
armistice agreements.
In April. Lebanon, taking advantage of the
fact that its new found ally, the Soviet Union, was
in the chair, brought the Nahalin incident before
the Security Council. The Israelis countered with
several complaints against Jordan, including its
violations of the armistice agreement by refusing
to attend a conference after Article 12 was in-
voked.
As the Security Council was going to deal with
the Palestine dispute again, the only sensible thing
was to have it review the whole issue, and the
Western Powers pressed for the Lebanese-Jordan-
ian complaint and the Israeli complaints to be
taken up together. Since they were only interested
in propaganda, the Arabs were opposed to this
and wanted each complaint dealt with separately;
the agenda was not adopted till the Russians vacat-
ed the chair to the British.
Then, the Jordanian representative made a
speech, and the Israeli representative replied brief-
ly and asked whether the former had given under-

Arthur Burn attended a Bayonne Hebrew
I for several years. He later devoted himself
ly t<> his studies in high school, college and
er-itie. He has always been sympathetic to-
I Zionism This, however, was merely abstract,
did nut take any active part in Jewish or
movements He became "wedded" to eco-

I onh erve science," he explained.

and research director of the National Bureau of
Economic Research, and had been connected with
many other scientific institutions. He had also
published a number of books on the subject of
economy, and from time to time had been con-
sulted as an advisor by governmental departments.
This, however, did not draw him into the ranks
of the deciding political circles; he had nothing
whatever to do with politics. He met "Ike" only
accidentally at a reception in Columbia when Eisen-
hower was President of the University. So how
did it happen that the President chose him as his
economic advisor? Burns surmises that this is
because of his economic status and opinions which
were brought to light in his books. It would appear
that the President and his advisors liked Burns'
ideas.
Apparently, the match turned out compatibly.
The President and his Cabinet have great respect
for Mr. Burns and his opinions. And Burns has
the highest regard for the President. He praises
highly Eisenhower's ability and character: "He
thinks clearly and quickly absorbs every problem.
He has a deep understanding of economic ques-
tions. Eisenhower always goes to the root of a
problem. He has fundamental knowledge, com-
mon sense and a brilliant memory. At the same
time, he possesses an open mind, devoid of any
prejudice. He is capable of assimilating new ideas
and blending them with his strong principles."
Concerning the economic course of President
Eisenhower and his Administration. Dr. Burns de-
clared that the aims are to enlarge the productivity
of the country in order to increase the national
income. "The Administration believes that abun-

anthropologist, all of whose work is eminently
readable and provocative, has written, in "Festi-
vals of the Jewish Year," a scholarly, fitrlniting
and exciting account of the Jewish holidays, nar-
rated from the viewpoint of world civilization and
told by a man who is acquainted with the folklore
of other ancient and modern peoples What makes
Dr. Caster s book so rich, however, is that he al-
ways seeks out the Jewish values of the festivals

and HeRl, with some minor modifications Even
our Jewish Socialism was an importation from the
outside.
We have been much too long nurtured in our
lifeblood by a perennial itraam from the Old
World but with relatively ft m creative additions
of our own. In this united communit; the need of
cultivating an American Jewish heritage has be-
come increasingly imperative, particularly with
the stoppage of immigration, the destruction of
the great centers of Jewish learning and thinking
in the Old World and the rise of the State of
Israel. Because it is a state and a nation, Israel
has, by its very nature, a different approach to
life, a different approach to culture and a different
approach to language. Hebrew is a daily language
there.
In order to preserve their identity in a fruitful.
creative way, American Jews must develop some-
thing new. Because of that, it la doubly imperative
for them to try to reconstruct their own great
heritage. The failure of our ancestors to preserve
records, the failure of scholars for generations to
keep that heritage alive is, therefore, not merely a
matter to be deplored by some specialists or schol-
ars. It is a vital concern to the community at large.
The JWB was and is on the right track when it
developed such peculiar institutions as Jewish
Book Month, Jewish Music Month, Jewish History
Week with emphasis on American Jewish his-
tory when it is cultivating that heritage cre-
atively, beneficiently for a future community
which, I for one believe, may yet achieve a creative
compound of American and Jewish culture of
an American Jewish culture which may rival and
perhaps even outshine some day the great creative
cultures of Hellenistic Alexandria or the golden
age of Spain.

Adlai Stevenson visits the National Jewish
Hospital at Denver during a recent trip
through Colorado. Philip Houtz (left), execu-
tive director, shows the Democratic Party-
leader through the medical center for tuber-
culosis and chest diseases, where patients
representing all religious faiths come for
treatment.
the economic situation of the Jewish State will be
considerably improved. The Arab blockade, he
says, creates serious difficulties for the State of
Israel. Necessary products which Israel could ob-
tain from neighboring Arab countries such as
food, oil and other raw materials she must now
buy from far away, which makes it more costly.
"It is the difference between shopping for your
food and necessities in your neighborhood or being
compelled to go for them a distance of many
miles," he explains. In addition to this, Israel in-
dustry is cut off from her natural market. In the
Arab countries. Israel could sell many of her in-
dustrial products. Today, the Arab policy makes
it impossible, although the Arabs too suffer eco-
nomically from their boycott of Israel.
Dr. Burns believes that America and our demo-
cratic allies must take a stronger stand to influence
the Arabs to cease their blockade of Israel. He
also hopes that this will happen very soon. The
Western powers, he remarked, know that they
cannot depend upon the Arabs as an earnest factor
in the struggle between the East and West at a
time when they have full assurance that Israel will
fight effectively for her independence and for
democratic freedom and security in the Middle
East. He is, therefore, convinced that the Western
powers will ultimately, in their own interests, take
steps against the Arab blockade of the State of
Israel.
Professor Arthur Burns is generally optimistic
about the economic development of the State of
Israel. The Jewish character, its genius, energy
and creative ability he is certain will over-
come all difficulties, and Israel will grow to be a
great economic factor and connecting link between
the Western world of Europe and America and the
Eastern world of Asia and Africa.

that did not want them, out of the dark days of night, out of an
alien land that stood silent before their young needs, this boy

one which will, for them, no longer be dark cr silent or friend-

In the meantime in the swamplands of the

t thousands of years the Valley of the Huleh.
in Northern tfalilee had lain at their feet unchang-
ed by the-lew-who had dared its perils What then
did this disturbing of its swampy surfaces mean
thi- activity of machines and men who were cut-
ting great swathe* in the tangled jungle of its
mar-:.
For unrecorded centuries the waters of the
River Jordan and its tributaries had overflowed
their banks and inundated the land, making of the
valley a breeding place of pestilence and death
A survey made during the period when Great
Britain held the Mandate over Palestine revealed
that in this entire region it was difficult to find a
person not affected by malaria.
Only scattered Bedouin tribes had dared brave
the swamps and live in the Huleh Basin itself.
Driven by famines from over the Jordan they
would pitch their black goat hair tents on the
edges of the swamplands and let their water buf-
faloes and herds of camels feed on the succulent,
rank weeds of its marshes. Most of their children
died in the first year of their lives.
The population of the valley was sparse. Arabs
who cultivated the land of absentee Syrian land-
lords had lived in the more northern section of its
plateau region, and in the lowlands were scattered
the first of the earlier Jewish settlers who were
rich in land but so stricken in health that, while
they clung to their settlements, they had little
energy to do more than survive.
Sir John Hope Simpson, reporting to the Man-
datory Government of Palestine in 1930. said that
the "Huleh is a plague spot." And so it might
have remained had it not been for the new type
of Jewish pioneer groups which settled in the
north of the valley Its members were determined
that, at all costs, the Huleh should be rid of its pall
of death and be brought to life.
And the cost was high. Their first born chil-
dren all died of malaria but they stayed on.
Economic and political problems beset them and
their colon) Tel Hal was attacked and their
great leader, Josef Trumpeldor, and others, were
killed but the) stayed on For they had con-
celved the idea of the birth of the valley and. in
the successful development of their own colony,
they felt the first stirrings of its life.
But there was much that stood in the way of

r first i Mention of the form of an Amer-
|nioa was a Theocracy, the same form of
nment in all its essential characteristics, and
|tsiiy modelled thereafter, as the children of
set up over the twelve tribes under their
lawgiver Moses. They continued this The-
for a period of forty-one years, from 1643
to 1684, and under it they organized the New
England Confederacy. "This confederacy, of the
four New England Colonies," says Pitkin, "served
as the basis of the great confederacy afterwards
between the thirteen State of America." An ex-
amination of the two systems discloses a similarity
not only in name, but in principles. The Puritans
especially the New England Puritans, evinced a
greater preference for the Old Testament than
perhaps they themselves were aware of. The per-
secutions they had suffered in the mother country,
instead of subduing or disbanding them, had trans-
formed them from what at first was a sect into a
faction, united together by the strongest ties of
union with spirits rendered more determined by
the severity of the hardships they had endured.
The wilderness they had conquered by their
paUent toil was now blossoming as a garden inter-
spersed within growing villages and populous
towns. Their first and only concern was to pre-
serve this new Canaan for themselves and to estab-
lish such laws and regulations for their govern-
ment as might secure this end beyond perad-
venture.
The Mosaic laws were framed under divine
sanction to accomplish a similar end. To these
laws they turned as a guide, not taking into ac-
count that more than thirty centuries had rolled
by, and that the social regulations of those times
were not better fitted for the then times than the
vestments of that clime would suffice as a proper
protection against the New England winter. They
did not seem to understand that however severe
the Mosaic code was, it was mild in comparison
with the laws that preceded it, and that the social
relations of mankind had undergone a change dur-
ing the many centuries that had rolled by. They
even baptized their children no longer by the
names of Christian saints but by those of the He-
brew prophets and patriarchs. In a word, they
adopted not the spirit but the letter of the Old
Testament, and here was the radical error of their
social regulations.
The question suggests itself: Why could not
the social laws and religious regulations of the
Hebrews be adopted by the people of New England
with the same propriety, justice and applicability
as their form of government? The answer is plain.
The former were framed upon the central idea of
exclusiveness. The children of Israel were, as they
believed, God's chosen people. Social and religi-
ous regulations were made with this chief end in
y&w, that they might not by contact with sur-
rounding nations lapse into idolatry. On the other
hand, their form of government was constructed
upon laws of universal humanity, upon the broad
principles that all men are equal, that God alone
is kind; which were as true when the Declaration
of Independence was adopted as in the times of
Moses and Joshua and as true in New England as
they were in Canaan.

t-luate the work of the past months and attempts
determine what, on the face of it, the future
rtll bring. Such stock-taking at this season is par-
Ularly appropriate here in the Negev frontier-
id.
For. when Israel observed its first Rosh Ha-
M js a free nation, the Negev had not yet been

L,ru.K lieersheba was in Arab hands. Jewish
lllages lay cut of' behind enemy lines. It was
kb in late October of 1948 that the back of the
ivading Egyptian army was broken and Israel took
Lgestion of what the newborn nation had been
, i under the UN partition decision.
In the few grains of time since then less than
L years the Negev had undergone a transfor-
lation which i* probably unequalled in any other
n of the globe in that period. In 1948 there
i no Jewish cities in the Negev, and there were
l than two thousand settlers in a baker's dozen
[tiny settlement* whose chances for growth and
loess were severely limited by a lack of water,
today Beersheba. capital of the Negev. has a popu-
of 2:i.0O0. mostly immigrants, the old-new
jty of Ascalon is the home of 13,00 newcomers.
the Negev is a successful farming area with
settlements whose population totals almost
Low.
This year, especially, the stock-taking in the
kegev adds up to smiles on the work-weary faces
f the Negev pioneers. It is apparent that the year
(714 will go down in Israeli history as the year
the Negev turned the corner toward eco-
Dime stability, when the vast investments in agri-
tolture began to bring a return. It has been a hard
rind in the Negev, and there have been times
the newcomers of 1949 and '50 despaired of
I future But this year the four and five-year-old
ges are bringing in fine crops and this is the
[ear when the roots have sunk deep enough to
ake the Negev really seem to be "home."
Agricultural progress has been swift and steady.

tabled, zooming from 7,000 dunams to 15,400.
he area given over to fruit trees and vineyards
doubled, rising from 3,000 to 6,100 dunams.
lilk produetion in this half of Israel which once
m considered useless went up from 3.200,000
pters to 5.200.000 in a single year, while egg pro-
uction rose by over 4,000.000 annually. In less
kan two years the number of sheep -Hwned by
|egev settlements jumped from 1,808 to 4.638.
Even eyes allergic to figures can hardly avoid

Hardly ., week passes without some new evi-
fnce oi the Negev'i unprecedented growth. In a
tent three-day period, for example, the local
n carried two significant items first, that
ft Negev's thirteenth Area Council, or self-govern-
l body df a number of adjacent villages, had
been established, and secondly, that thirty Negev
settlements would soon have electricity.
The role of American Jewry in the development
'of Israels new breadbasket has be*n irreplaceable
The Jewish Agency, which receives the great bulk
of its funds from American Jewry through the
United Jewish Appeal, has spent $19,000,000 on
founding and creating new settlements in the
Negev up to 5714. without considering the equiva-
lent sums which went into the Negev's vital irri-
gation scheme. In the year now ending, the UJA-
supported Jewish Agency is .pending 5.700.000
to expand the economy of the fledgling Negev set-
tlements and another 5.500.000 on the big waler
pipeline which will bring the waters of the Yarkon
River. Israel's biggest just north of Tel Aviv, over
one hundred miles south into the Negev.
The Agency together with its partner. Amer-
ican Jewry and the I MA serve. U godfather
to agriculture in the Negev. is responsible for the
establishment of each new settlement, responsible
for all immigrant settlements until they are self-
supporting The program of changing a wilderness
into a rich farming area is directed from a group
of prefabricnted buildings on the approaches to
Beersheba. and as an example trt the Negev pio-
neers the buildings are surrounded by1 green lawns,
ilower beds and clumps of young trees. To the
13.000 Negev farmers, this is headquarters, the
home of the Agency's Mifal HaNegev or "Negev
Enterprise." From here MatityaTiu Kahanovitz, the
burly, weather-beaten farmer who is chief of Mifal
HaNegev, and his assistants, brilliantly divided
between practical types who got -their green
thumbs through practice alone and agronomists
trained in American Aggie schools, dash in bat-
tered jeeps from the site of a new well here to the
site there of a water reservoir big as the Hollywood
Bowl; from a discussion on new varieties of wheat
to relative merits of sheep.

hints that the various political parties are casting
anxious dances toward the electorate. Not only
from the floor of the Knesset, but also at weekend
party rallies and in the daily press can one discern
the first rigm of bids for votes next year.
Some hints take the form of asides which fall
at press conferences with cabinet ministers. Some
are not hints at all they are direct assaults of
one party against the other. And then there are
the countless attempts at housecleaning. soul-

to speakers of the General Zionists or Mapai at
party rallies, one would not believe that these two
major groups take joint credit and responsibilty

Another Republican, Sen. William, Langer

ill-advised jaunt of Secretary Dulles, symbolized by
his presentation of a nickel-plated revolver to the
Egyptian strongman. General Naguib, in the name
of the American President, Dwight Eisenhower.
Has not the world seen the pictures of this small-
time dictator brandishing this absurd weapon?"
Sen. Langer pointed out that Egypt did not lift
a hand in its own defense when Rommel threw his
Nazi legions at Cairo and Alexandria. He noted
that Egypt "was thrown back on its heels by the
untrained regiments of poorly-armed little Israel
during the litter's war for independence." The
Senator asked: "Can anyone find any justification
for faith in Mr. Dulles and in the future?"

national needs must transcend class interests and
for advocating compulsory national arbitration in
industrial disputes during the upbuilding period of
the Jewish State.
There was a time when they called his warn-
ings and admonitions "dark prophecies." This was
dune shame-facedly by some honest opponents who
sought in this way to atone for their blindness in
ignoring his analyses. This was especially the
c.i-e after the Arab pogroms in Jerusalem, Safed
and Hebron in 1929. Nevertheless his policy for
active defense and his other prophetic suggestions
continued to be vehemently opposed. The price
of this failure of the leaders to heed Jabotinsky
was paid by the people. Today the citizens of
Israel and Zionists throughout the world mourn
the failure to heed another "prophetic" warning
of Jabotinsky. It was in 1937 that he warned
against Zionist acceptance of the partition policy
for Palestine since any partition would leave the
Jewish State with indefensible borders. This warn-
ing was not heeded in 1947 and 1948 when the
present boundaries of Israel were arrived at. The
result is a state of continuous warefare on the
borders. Now we read of daily attacks by Arab
bands, irregular and regular forces, on Jewish
towns and settlements and of Jewish families
mourning their dead.
Jabotinaky was revered by the masses, for they
sensed his greatness, and saw in him the expres-

mark made by a skeptic some seven years ago. just
before Israel attained its independence. His re-
mark would have gone unnoticed, if he had not
been one of Europe's foremost geologists.
Nowadays, this geologist is forced to admit that
he was wrong Indeed, he now predicts unlimited
resources will be found in Israel's desert land.
However, practical Israeli officials, who know what
it is to face disappointment, believe that the truth
lies somewhere between this geologist's present
opinion and his views a few years ago.
Many minerals and chemicals have been found
in the Negev. and several of these are being ex-
plored and exploited successfully, particularly
phosphates, copper, potash, ball clay, glass sand
and gypsum. Israels chief concern, however, is
the status of its iron deposits With technical ad-
vice from foreign experts and with the financial
assistance of investment capital derived from the
State of Israel Development Issue. Israel hopes to
utilize its iron ore to establish a hugh steel in-

would almost have to be that way. For the
gev villagers are desperately intent on making
access of their own plots of land, and even with
i that is not easy. They work six full days a
jek, from dawn till after dark, and they begrudge
kry hour spent away from the farm.
(This attitude, encountered in every variety of
gev village, is typical of the independence of the
fcev settlers Whether they hail from the coasts
Indian Ocean or the Baltic Sea. they are
neers ready to try something new and daring.
! Negcv is full of men like the member of kib-

[As tail indicates, the Negev is still full of prob-
HBMmttflBlffl
lems. Water leads the list. Vast sums will have to
be raised and spent before the water problem is
solved, for in the average'settlement irrigation
must be increased 2'* times before the villager can
be considered to have a fighting chance for success
There are settlements in the Negev which can
utilize only a tenth of their available land because
of the lack of water.
A number of the Negev settlements are nearing
the point where they will be completely self-sup-
porting, proof positive that the Negev can be suc-
cessfully settled; six are destined to leave the
tutelage of the Jewish Agency this year and to
start paying back on their loans. The rest are
undercapitalized, suffer from an insufficiency of
operating funds and machinery, water installations,
etc. It is estimated that, in addition to funds al-
ready spent on the average post-statehood Negev
settlement. 4,000 to 6.000 must be spent per
family before the village reaches the self support
stage.
Another pressing problem is security. There
are few weeks in Israel when the local press does
not report several "incidents" in the Negev a
few hundred feet of irrigation piping stolen in this
settlement, a herd of sheep taken from that vil-
lage, shots fired at members of a third village.
The project to bring electricity to thirty immigrant
settlements, in which the Agency and the Govern-
ment are cooperating, is motivated not by the fact
that the settlers would like to read by incandescent
light bulb rather than oil lamp the Negev is
not yet rich enough for such "luxuries" but
by security considerations. A village with well-
built houses, a fence and searchlights is a strong
village, and a safe one.
The key problem in the Negev. which will help
solve the security problem, is empty space which
must be filled up if Israel is to become self-sup-
porting. There is room in the northern Negev
alone for as many, and perhaps more, new settle-
ments as now exist there. And the southern Negev,
the area stretching below Beersheba, is still vir-
tually empty. This is the challenge of the future
to the Jewish Agency, its "Negev Enterpise" and
its partner, American Jewry and the UJA.
"This is a pioneer land the atmosphere
is informal in the extreme There isn't
a necktie in the place."

The Hon James G. McDonald, first American

seen these children in Israel taking up their new

Edward M. M Warburg, general chairman of

I know how very much its ministrations have

IRON MAY SOON RISE
Continued from Psge 10
portant part in farad's plans for building an iron
and steel industry. Using Israel Bond capital, the
Government is in the process of completing two
mills for making steel pipes, an open hearth plant
that will convert pig iron and scrap metal into
steel, and a rolling mill to produce steel bars.
With continued financial assistance from State
of Israel Bond subscribers all over the free world,
and with the full scale development of its iron
deposits, Israel will be able to face the New Year
with the knowledge that another obstacle in its
quest to achieve economic independence has been
overcome.
This Yemenite beauty will spend her first
Rosh Hashona in Israel. She has been
brought out of poverty and despair to the
homeland of her fathers, where her dignity
and her future are secured.

never gotten beyond the blueprint stage, were put
into work .;__ >j
The problem* were manifold. The waters el
the Jordan, flowing at times at the rate of 3.500
cubic feet per second could find no vent but a
narrow passage and. backing up. had formed the
Lake of the Huleh. out of which the river flowed an
insignificant stream Floodwaters slowed down by
choked up river beds, overflowed their banks and
formed into swamps The first stage of the plan
was to blast the basalt rocks and lava, erupted from
now extinct volcanoes, from out of the bed of the
nver and to deepen and widen it. so that at long
\mt the Jordan could find unimpeded passage and
its imprisoned water could be freed.
There were other difficulties formidable
ones to be overcome. Excavating machines were
mobilized from all over the country, but they were
insufficient, nor were they powerful enough. And
the political complications were many and great.
Notwithstanding the fact that the boundaries
of Israel lay eighty and a hundred yards depend-
ing on the location east of the Jordan, and that
the Jordan at no point touches on Syrian territory,
no work was allowed to be done on the rivers
eastern shore; nor could the dredge stones be de-
posited there. The excavating had to be done over
and again and the silt and rock clawed out of the
riverbed, had to be carried away instead of dump-
ed; which increased both costs and labor. And it
exacted also a toll of life, when Israeli workmen
were shot at from the Syrian side and killed.
At that time in 1951 a Syrian protest
about Israel's work in the demilitarized zone was
rejected by the United Nations. Unlike the present
decision of the Security Council to stop work
even if only temporarily on the diversion canal
some miles below the Huleh Basin, which is to
make possible the development of hydroelectric
power for irrigation and industry the reclama-
tion work in the Valley of the Huleh was allowed
to continue over Syrias objections.
And. in spite of obstacles and objections, the
first stage of the development plan has been com-
pleted. The Jordan has been deepened from twenty
to thirty feet, varying in different places, and flows
in a wider and straigbter bed. The Lake of the
Huleh has been shrunk to thirty percent of its
former size and its water level has been dropped
more than four
feet, which will
free the dried
margins for the
growing of much
needed c r o pI.
But it was not
until the final
stages of the firt
step, and when

the River Jordan

dunams of lake surface, 17,000 dunams of

farming units will be established, each one
prising 30 dunams. There will be a variety of i
cultural produce: 6,000 dunams will be all

4.000 for peanuts; 20.000 for grain; and 10.0001

at home. Wherever he appeared before a group
in some Jewish community, he provided them
with -a novel experience. Growing weary of the
steadily mounting Zionist appeals for charity, they
were surprised to learn that he had come to them
with a sound business proposition. Many Jewish
businessmen with no particular interest in Pales-
tine or Zionism were attracted by this business-
like yet dignified approach to the establishment of
a national homeland for Jews, and decided to in-
vest money in Ampal.
Today, Ampal which on January 29, 1954
changed its name to the American Israel Corpora-
tion, is the largest private investment corporation
doing business with Israel. Its wide and varied
interests run the gamut of Israel's industries, de-
velopment projects and agricultural enterprises.
The total assets of the corporation, its affiliates
and subsidiaries, now amount to approximately
$35,000,000. It has invested in and loaned to Israel
$115,000,000 during the last 12 years, and never
missed paying a dividend to its stockholders.
Through its subsidiaries, it buys many millions of
dollars' worth of goods in the United States; in
turn it exports Israel-made products for the Ameri-
can market.

will allow it. when the work of reclamation is com-

tion of tens of thousands.
The conception was great, the travail long and
the birth hard. But the mountains of the Lebanon
and Mt. Hermon looking down from their objec-
tive heights from over the border in Syria, must
bear witness to the fact that it is a force for the
good of the land and the region that is making
possible this birth of a Valley.

The greatest tragedy of the Jews of Poland is
their absolute isolation from the rest of world
Jewry- The Jews in Poland and those in the other
Communist countries are not even able to com-
municate with each other on religious and cultural
matters.
Not a single Jew left Poland in 5714 either for
Israel or any other country of the Diaspora It is
not known that a representative of any Jewish or-
ganization was permitted to visit Poland during
the year. Not one Jewish journalist was given the
opportunity of reporting the life of the small
surviving fragment of the once active Jewish com
munity.
The only "good news" about Polish Jewry in the
last year was the lack of news. Contrary to some
other People's Republics, there were no public ac-
tions against Jews and no show trials against
"Zionist traitors." The only source of Jewish news
from Poland was the single weekly, Yiddish-lan-
guage program on the Polish radio, which often
attacks the Israel Government for siding with the
"American Imperialists."

William Rosenwald, honorary president of United Service lor
New Americans, receives a bronze plaque for his years of lead-
ership in behalf of lewish refugees from Donald Steinfirst at the
agency's first annual meeting held in New York City during the
Hebrew year 5714. Mr. Steinfirst. chairman of the meeting's
planning committee, presented similar plaquesi to Mrs. Irving
Engel and Edwin Rosenberg, both honorary presidents of USNA;
Mrs. Louis Broido, chairman of the board of directors; and Walter
Bieringer, president. Lower left is Dr. C. H. van Heuven Goed-
hart. United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Mrs.
Engel looks on at right. Such scenes in behalf of refugees are
curtailed by the sharp-fisted world behind the Iron Curtain,
where Jews today live" in fear and are not permitted to leave for
lands of freedom. Jewish movement there to Israel during the
past year resulted in particularly tragic occurrences. Migrants
found themselves disappointed in the pioneering spirit a new
nation demands. It was not that they preferred easier methods
of integration but that their
-----------"--- """~~'"~ mode of life for generations dif-
fered sharply from that which
they found in the Jewish repub-
i lie after the No.zi holocaust up-
rooted and left them the tattered
remains of once flourishing
European cultures. So it was
that they sought re-entrance to
the scenes of their former de-
struction, became members of
i a new social grouping "re-
, turnees" and found them-
; selves doubly unwanted. Is-
rael's open door is once again
offered them, and many hope
to migrate there a second time.
Others still nurture the- unform-
ed vision of citizenship in the
United States a slim pos-
sibility under McCarran-Walter
immigration legislation and
President Eisenhower's Emer-
gency Refugee Act of 1953. The
turmoil and the constant move-
ment of a yet exiled people
continues. Behind is the murky
wake of their despair, the mis-
ery of povertv and the tragedy
of disease. Until they are set-
tled in lands of their choosing
and in the milieu that can offer
them a lost dignity. American
Jewry must remain their pha-
lanx of supoort. This section of
The Jewih Floridian New Year
Edition 5714 is dedicated to that
preposition. If 2.500,000 unfor-
tunate Jews behind the Iron
Curtain now cry out to us for
spiritual support, we serve
them best when we serve those

The Past Year in Germany
BY HERMAN WEINER
JTA
BONN The Jewish community in Germany has
made considerable strides toward consolidation in
the year now drawing to a close, but 'normalcy''
remains an unattainable goal.
At the July meeting of the Central Council of
Jews in Germany, the representative body of Ger-
man Jewry, its chairman, Heinz Galinski. was able
to declare with deep satisfaction that a new phase
of postwar Jewish history in Germany had been
reached because "our right to exist is no longer
in question."
Nothing highlighted this change in psychological
climate quite so dramatically as the establishment,
with the blessings and support of the World Zionist
Organization, of a Zionist Organization for Ger-
many. Only a few years ago. all Zionist activities in
Germany were closed down by order of the central
Zionist authorities, so as to speed the dissolution of
the residual Jewish community on German soil.
Now the talk is of collecting funds for Israel, of
setting up small-loan funds to stake merchants and
artisans wishing to go into business for themselves
on a modest Kale, of providing Jewish education
for the hundreds of postwar children now reaching
chool ago. of drafting a comprehensive cultural
program.
Barring a major upheaval, Jewish communities
will remain in Germany lor year- to come. General
recognition of this fact has paved the way for an
understanding between the representatives)
Jews in Germany and the world Jewish
turns.
Thus, the Central Welfare Agency of
in Germany received a substantial alloca
the Central Conference on Jewish Material(
Against Germany. Most of the direct
assistance to Jews in German cities, hit
led by the Joint Distribution Committee, i
becoming the Central Welfare Agency's
bility.
After a long period of increasingly bitterd
ling, the dispute between the re-established I
communities in Germany and the so-calk
cessor organizations," about the disposition i
erty that had belonged to the pre Hitler f
was all but settled. The "successor or

The Jewish, as distinguished from the Judaistic
contnbution to America is another matter. It came
at a much later period in American history, when
Jews had arrivecMp sufficient numbers, and reli-
gious tolerance, had become firmly implanted after
Amerjpn independence had been established and
the American Constitution adopted. It.came to-
ward the end of the nineteenth century and gradu-
ally gained in importance until now during the
mid twentieth century Jews can boast of many and
great accomplishments for the progress and better-
ment of American life as a whole.
During this tercentenary year we shall remind
ourselves, and our non-Jewish fellow-Americans
as well, of our achievements in various fields of
American life and American endeavor, of what we
have contributed to American industry, commerce
and finance, to American political life, to Ameri-

and letters.
And what* of our contribution tdgJudaism and

and all over the -world*-. We have, faected very
many and expensive synagogues, canters and cul

newspapers, magaaines and books, andftwe have
scholarly institutions devoted to research into the
Jewish past. Yet of late years we*"liavf become
conscious of how much still remains to be done in
this field and how far behind we are in this respect
to those Eastern and Central European lands
where Jewish cultural and spiritual life flourished
until lately, before it was destroyed by a horde of
murderous Germans.
In another respect, however, we American Jews
may be pardoned if we engage in boastfulness dur-
ing this tercentennial year. I mean our accomplish-
ments on behalf of Jews in other lands during
the past half-century, and more, our achievements
in the way of physical rescue and relief of Euro-
pean Jewry and our share in the upbuilding and
legal establishment of the State of Israel.

Iritish Jewry's Search for Unity
By GEOFFREY D. PAUL
Chic' of JTA Offke in London
D()N \v,tbt*4eUut year. th^f^fe
STcomnninilyN concern has been directed not
'much (" its own affairs- but more to those "*
brethren outside of this island. This is nothing
in the history of British Jewry which has a
"lid record of action on behalf of Jews overseas.
But thi> very f;,cl nas ol itsel* raised many new
oblems, not the least of which is representation
the British Government on matters affecting
kws outside of this country. The major commu-
L| organizations are jealous of their right to ap-
Coach Her Majesty*! Government on matters with
fhich they are concerned. These range from the
llitude of the Arab states toward Israel to the
jersecution ol Jews in Eastern Europe.
In recent years, these bodies chiefly the
ard of Deputies and the Anglo-Jewish Associ-
ion have seen a threat to their status in the
tpearance of the World Jewish Congress and the
oudi~t Israel World Organization, both of which
Eim an equal right, but on a differing basis, to
bproach the British Government. Whereas the
ard and the Association present themselves to
jovernmental departments as interpreting the
Lw> of AngloJewry, the Congress and the Agu-
Vh do so .> representing the views of world Jew-
i orsani/ati.
There can Ik- little doubt that separate ap-
aches tn ministers on matters of Jewish con-
Irn by all these organizations retard rather than
(hance the target at which all are aiming the
triation "t the Jewish position wherever it is
dan^ered There is the legend of the Cabinet
|ini.ster who, after receiving four Jewish deputa-
Ions each of which urged on him a differing
parse of ad ion to the previous delegation, was
liormed that a fifth awaited an audience. "Now,"
Mid. "1 understand all about the Tower of
bel."
It was tii achieve a measure of cooperation and
ordination in matters of Jewish foreign affairs
^at the president of the Board of Deputies, Dr.
brahtm Cohen, initiated negotiations early to the
(tar with leaders of the main communal and inter-
itional Jewish organizations in th+s country. At
time of writing, these negotiations were not

addition to bringing the community to an
Icceptance of a programmatic leadership,
iritish Jewish finds as a major task the prob-
lem of developing significant interest in Is-
|oels future industrial development core
the Jewish State's achievement.
English school children learn about Rosh
Hashona in a religious school. Britain's prob-
lem has been a disorganized Jewish commu-
nity which now seeks to emerge through uni-
fied leadership. '"
completed There are few who do not wish them
well. Fully representative approaches to the Brit-
ish Government can serve only to' enhance the
status of the community and further the interests
of those on whose behalf they are made.
The question of cooperation on a wider scale
was discussed at the Conference of Jewish Commu-
nities in the British Commonwealth, held in Lon-
don in June. To this came representatives of most
of the Jewish communities within the Common-
wealth with the power to speak but not to vote or
approve resolutions. This was perhaps the weak-
ness of the conference.
They agreed on the prime necessity of strength-
ening the ties, personal and organizational, be-
tween them, and more especially to cooperate more
closely within Hie framework of those United Na-
tions agencies with which they are associated. The
talks covered a wide range of subjects with major
concern being expressed at the apparently increas-
ing distribution of anti-Semitic publications from
centralized points, particularly the United States
and Sweden.
Fascism in Britain is today not a strong force.
True, its pre-war leader. Sir Oswald Mosley, has
emerged from his retirement in Eire and has ad-
dressed a number of meetings in this country. But
the Jew-baiting angle is being played down. Those
concerned with Jewish defense are not, however,
relaxing their vigilance. Throughout the country,
under the direction of a central body, observers
take note of local trends and gatherings which
might be made the launching board for a smear-
campaign.
Some concern, but not to be exaggerated, has
been expressed in recent months at events like
the refusal of a leading northern England golf
club to admit Jews to membership, a Glasgow
house builder's ban on Jewish tenants and the re-
fusal of a south coast hotel to take in Jewish guests.
In all these cases, influential sections of the na-
tional press have led the protests against racial
discrimination and this fact, more than any other,
has served to assure the Jewish community that it
is not alone in safeguarding its rights.

this recreation need is especially keen. Today, a

In the midst of this, there is one monument to
the American Jewish community's concern for its
sons and daughters abroad the Synagogue Cot-
tar maintained by the National Jewish Welfare
Board in Heidelberg. The only religious and rec-
reational facility of tta kind for Jewish Oil in the
U. S. Zone of Germany, the JWB Heidelberg Center
was set up after the end of World War II and has
become the hub of Jewish activity for servicemen
and civilians alike The Heidelberg {'enter is one
phase of JWB's world wide program as the govern-
ment authorized agency for religious, morale and
welfare services to Jewish men and women in our
country's Armed Force-
An indication of the role that the Heidelberg
Center plays, and of the regard that the Jewish
men overseas have for their Center, is expressed in
a recent letter from an officer at U. S Army head-
quarters in the area, who describes the Center as
the place in Germany where "Jewish military per-

is open, and we have got about 220 children here
but we have a lo, of trouble with the parents of
more than 500 children who wish to join our
nursery and we have no place for them. I hope
God will help us.
The children arrive at eight oclock in the
morning, and at nine they are given a cup of milk
with a sandwich of butter or cheese, after which
they play and sing Hebrew and Persian songs. They
are given their lunch at twelve and, after washing
they go to sleep for an hour, after which they
again play and sing till four o'clock, when they
are given another cup of milk and a sandwich and
are sent home. Twice a week they are given baths
JDC has provided all of the children with dresses,
undergarments, sweaters and shoes. When they
iirst came to the nursery, they were thin and pale,
but now they are all growing strong and healthy
and are very, very happy. We have school six days
each week. On Friday, they go home after lunch;
and on Saturday, of course, the nursery k closed.
A clinic has been set up, with a nurse in ftill-time
attendance and with regular visits from a doctor.
That, in brief, is the description of our nursery.
"We shall never forget what you have dime for
us and how helpful you have been, and \ hope and
pray you will not forget us and continue to be of
help to us." '
The 300.000 rials with which this was accom-
plished comes to $3,000 in American money. In the
JDC budget for Iran for the coming year, 600.000
rials are included for an addition to the nursery
to enable more children to be cared for.

effort to see over the papers on the director's

prominent by a pinched, hungry lace, were wide
with a wild life-or-death look.
"MM?" the director asked. The faintest of

on their hair or foreheads, particularly on the day
of the Sabbath." The skill in making this unique
jewelry was handed down from family to family.
It originated in the Land oi the Bible and now
was brought back there.
Mrs. Dayan pointed out that small sections can
be lifted out and made into original earrings, pins,
belts, or other dress or hat decorations. These sec
tions would be made to order by the Israeli women,
who have been encouraged to utilize their unusual
skills by Mrs. Dayan. in her capacity as advisor to
the Ministry of Labor.
It was in this capacity that Mrs. Dayan joined
her husband in their recent trip to the United
States. While Gen. Dayan toured United States
Military installations, Mrs. Dayan marketed Israel's
native crafts. She hoped to obtain contracts from
firms, decorators and individuals for Persian or
peasant type rugs, for embroidery and jewelry
which will be made to American specifications.

our political efforts in this connection, can hardly
be exaggerated. Here we worked as Jews on be-
half of our suffering fellow Jews in many lands,
and here as a group not as individuals we
were eminently successful It was beyond our
American Jewish power to halt the slaughter of
the six millions in Europe But it was our money
and devotion to fellow-Jews that rescued as many
as possible from the European cauldron of the
Second World War, and without our money, devo-
tion and political efforts the State of Israel would
not have come into being.
The five million Jews of the United States
showed that, no matter how much assimilative and
un-Jewish influences had corroded their lives here,
their hearts" still responded to Jewish suffering
and Jewish aspirations and that in critical mo-
ments their Jewish idealism was aroused and stood
ready to save Jt'wry.
This aroused Jewish idealism, even today ex-
pressing itself in American Jewish philanthropy
for overseas purposes as well as on behalf of do-
mestic Jewish needs, is what links American Jews
to the idealistic American faith in man, to historic
American democratic ideals when these reveal
themselves below the surface of present-day ma-
terialistic American incrustations. This is what
we should above all remember and cherish for the
future as we tell ourselves and our non-Jewish
neighbors during this year about our three cen-
turies of life and accomplishments in this land
of the free and the home of the brave.

cent of it will be accounted for even when the

But whether the coins and the paper money

in English or in Chinese or in Portuguese, the mes-
sage is always the same a message of hope and
understanding. And, as the New Year opens, for
those in need there is the knowledge that they

Davar reported on May 27, 1954 that Nachman
Schochetman. 69. and his wife Rifka. 65, had ar-
rived in Israel from Kishinev. The couple had re-
ceived permission to visit their daughter in Israel
after waiting four years.
Hungary
Of the little more than 400.000 Jews in Hungary
before the second World War. there are now about
100,000 in the country The Jews never had Hebrew
or Yiddish newspapers. The majority of these Jews
were both Orthodox and assimilated, as far as the
Hungarian language was concerned. Thousands of
Talmud Torah pupils knew no other language
than Magyar.
Today, there is one Jewish monthly, in the
Hungarian language, published in Budapest. There
are also a few Talmud Torahs in existence. Before
last Rosh Hashona. Benjamin Schwartz. Grand Rab-
bi of Hungary, sent a new year's message to the
London Jewish Chronicle. This was the only
activity of the Rabbinate of Hungary which was
known to outside Jewry.
In 5714. there were news reports of the depor-
tation of Jews from Budapest and other major
cities. The Jews were not allowed to take with them
their personal belongings. This treatment resulted
in the outbreak of panic among the Hungarian

Population figures, too. have for the first time
in more than 20 years retained a certain stability
in the vear under review The number of Jewish
residents is probably close to 25.000 A consider-
able fraction remains outside the organised com-
munity, however, even though affiliation with a
congregation is mandatory under German law for
all who consider themselves of the Jewish faith.
Not counting transmigrants who stayed for a
matter of months only, emigration from Germany
dwindled to about 800 That total, according to the
beat estimates, was more than offset by the number
of Jews, both of German and DP origin, who re-
turned from other countries.
The tokens of-consolidation are there for all
to see. but it would be misleading to overrate
them, to equate them with the achievement of a
normalization that is not in sight.
The trend of developments on the wider canvas
of Germany and Europe is bound to have reper-
cussions on the future of the Jewish community.
But even leaving that out of consideration, the age
structure of the Jews in Germany is so unprece-
dentedly top-heavy, and the identification of the
majority with Judaism so peripheral, that long-
range prospects remain dim outside the few rela-
tively large centers such as Berlin. Munich and
Frankfurt.
Although the reparations pact between West
Germany and Israel was signed in Luxemburg just
over two years ago. the German parliament ap-
proved it only in March of 1953. Another three
months went by until the necessary procedural
regulations were issued.
Thus it was last summer before the very first
orders could be placed with German manufacturers
by the Lsrael Purchasing Mission in Germany. Its
staff was competent and well primed, however,
from Ambassador Shinnar down to the last buyer
and secretary, so that not a day was lost. Already
by August, longshoremen in Tel Aviv were unload-
ing the initial two boatloads of reparations cargo.
As Israel was ushering in last year's Rosh
Hobona, the first iron beams with the "Made in
Germany" stamp were hoisted into place by Haifa
construction workers, the first sacks of German-
made fertilizers were spread upon the fields of a
pioneering kibbutz in the Negev Fur just one

Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria
in (he Iwo remaining countries of the five Com-
Lunist satellites, Czechoslovakia and Bulgaria, the
L<1 year has only negative aspects.
IThe Jewish population in these two countries
I. pppp decreased to a minimum. Of the 330,000
Chechoslovakia before World War II, there were
ly about 1H.000 left in 5714. In Bulgaria, there
almost a complete exodus of the 45,000 Jews

Only "lie development was heard during the
Ivear in relation to Bulgaria. The May 18, 1954
ledition of Davar reported that 18 Bulgarian Jews
|bad come i I-rael.
The Jew- of Czechoslovakia organized a council

Silesia and Slovakia. In Prague, there is a Jewish
monthly published in the Crech language. There
|ve no repnrts of whether there are any synagogues
[pen in tin country or whether there are any
Rabbis in the Czech capital.
The widely publicized Slansky trial, which
Itiused the Czech Jews much bitterness and pain,
ts been pushed out of the public eye by constant
khanginK "l national leadership in Prague. During
he Slansky trial, and for a long time afterwards,

Prague coulit be seen signs which read: "Hang the

fortune."
The climax of the Slansky trial which in-
volved other Jews in the Czech Government
ere the trials of Mordecai Oren, an Israel citizen
Tested while visiting in Prague, and Shmuel
Orenstein for "Zionist activities." All efforts of the
Israel Government to free Oren who received
15-year sentence were useless.
Under these circumstances, there was a standstill
i Jewish life in Czechoslovakia last year. Fifteen
pews who were seized while trying to leave the
untry illegally were shot on the spot.
In two cities Munkacz and Bratislava there
I exist Jewish Orthodox communities.
The USSR and the Baltic Countri.i
The life of the still great Jewish community of
he Soviet I'nion remained a closed book during
his year. The numbers of Jews there before the
hut break of the Second World War was estimated
V over 3,000.000. To these must be added the con-
Merable Jewish communities of Lithuania, Latvia
Ind Esthonia which were annexed in 1940 by the
V'SSR. There are no exact statistics available on

Orthodox Jews have no opportunity to obtain
kosher food.: There remains not even one of the
numerous Jewish newspapers once published in
Yiddish, Hebrew and Russian.
According to Harrison E. Salisbury, New York
Times correspondent in Moscow, who recently vis-
ited Birobidjan. there is a Yiddish weekly, Der
Stern, published there. Not a single copy of this
newspaper has been received outside Russia. Ac-
cording to the same correspondent, there are a
certain number of Jews in the cold northern
Siberian provinces. Due to the fact that there were
never Jews in these areas previously, it is believed
that they were forcibly deported there. It is not
known whether there are Russian Jews. Lithuanian
Jews or Jews from any other Soviet state.
No reports were received during the last year
about the Jews of Wilna. the once-famous "Lithu-
anian Jerusalem." Word of the Jews of Riga, cap-
ital of Latvia, was received from a Mrs. Israelitin.
who visited London en route from Riga to Johan-
nesburg to visit her two daughters. The 72-year-old
woman is reported to have said that there is in
Riga only one synagogue, which was crowded with
worshippers last Rosh Hashona and Yom Kippur.
There is in Riga, one cantor, but there is no Rabbi
or a ritual slaughterer. According to Mrs. Israelitin,
the number of mixed marriages in Riga is very
great.
East Germany
To the countries from which there is virtually
no news about Jews must be added East Germany.
The number of Jews in that country is estimated at
about 2.000, with 1.500 in East Berlin. There are
150 Jews in Leipzig, 150 in Dresden, and 100 in
Erfurt. The East German Jews have one Rabbi,
and two schools in which 100 pupils receive a
Jewish education. There are no Jewish publications.
Shanghai
Any report on the Jews behind the iron curtain
must include material on the Jews in Shanghai.
This great Chinese port city once had a large
Jewish community, composed mostly of Russian
Jews, which was recently augmented by German
and Polish Jewish refugees. With the help of the
Joint Distribution Committee and the Jewish
Agency, most of the Jews were evacuated, chiefly
to the United States and Israel.
In 5714, there arrived in Israel four Jews from
this Far Eastern city. They were allowed to take
with them all their personal belongings.

too, have, for the most part, shown a cooperative
spirit. The picture is marred only by the close-
fistedness of the Bonn Ministry of Finance which,
begrudging $73.8 million set as the normal level
of annual reparations in the Luxemburg Agree-
ment, cut the amount to the rock-bottom minimum
permitted by an escape clause of the Agreement,
namely 59.5 million dollars. Payments were sup-
posed to be reduced to this lesser sum as a last
resort, if Germany experienced financial stringen-
cy. In fact, though. Germany is astoundingly pros-
perous. In her treasury she has amassed foreign
exchange reserves and gold worth 2.400 million dol-
lars, a level never attained before.

Personalities in the
History of the Jews
BY EDWARD E. GRUSD
(EdHor's Not: In the voluminous mass of Ameri-
cana airh came to light last month, when the
Hbrabam Lincoln papers were made public, were
numt^r "f items depicting the relationship be-
|een 'be (Jreat Emancipater and the Jewish peo-
ff hi- time. Edward E. Grusd. editor of the
Sdiic. Jewish Monthly, describes one incident
L which Lincoln revoked an anti-Semitic order at
[the befcest of B'nai B'rith.)
Thr pening of the Abraham Lincoln papers to
( in the past Hebrew year 5714 brought to
M| me interesting documents which reveal
Br.d. i nth participation in one of the issues of the
nil War period. These papers demonstrate that
B'nai I nth was fighting against anti-Semitism in
Amir,., exactly a half century before its Anti-
pefair.:ion League was founded in 1913.
The material! refers to Gen. Grant's infamous
Order?-" 11. which" was issued on December 17.
1(162. A1 that time, the Federal navy was blockad-
es ttst South to prevent cotton exports from bol-
Iteriog the rebel economy. A number of cotton
ndei anaged to evade this blockade, and among
Ihi'in sere several Jews. Exploding with anger
i iving this news, Gen. Grant allowed anti-
enitic emotion to overcome his better judgment.
I ii lead of taking action against all the guilty.
singled out the Jews for special punish-
mont.
Mi-
rder \'o 11 stated that "the Jews, as a
class, violating every regulation of trade estab-
lished by the Treasury Department and also de-
partment orders, are hereby expelled from the
department within 24 hours from receipt of this
order."
This note referred to Gen. Grants Department
of the Missouri, which included military and civ-
ilian personnel in several midwest and southern
states, Ohio, Kentucky, Missouri, etc. It seems that
in addition to violating the Southern blockade, cer-
tain traders were also engaging in "black market-
dealings with the Union troops themselves, many
of whom were almost starving and dressed in
threadbare uniforms. The injustice of Gen. Grant's
order is sharpened by the fact that some 10,000
Jews were themselves in the Northern armies, plus
the fact that most of the guilty traders were not
JOWl at all.
Great hardship to many innocent people was
the immediate result of Gen. Grant's order, for
hundreds were actually sent into exile from their
homes and businesses, on a days notice. Many
prominent Jews like Rabbis Isaac M. Wise and Max
Lilienthal, as well as other outstanding Jewish
personalities, protested vigorously, and some of
them even came to Washington to see President
Lincoln personally about the issue.
The Jewish community of Paducah, Ky., sent
Cesar Kaskel, who had an interview with Lincoln
on January 3. 1863 Lincoln was immediately symp-
athetic, and in his jocular way remarked to Kaskel:
"And so the children of Israel were driven from

A 48-foot mural, "The Ideals of Judaism," is dedicated at the
B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation Building at Pennsylvania State
University during the past year. The mural is dominated by
three figures, Moses, Rabbi Hillel, the gentle' sage of the first
century B.C.E., and a contemporary teacher. Standing beside
the painting are Rabbi Benjamin M. Kahn, director of the Penn
State B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation, and the painter, Antonieta
Terrazas Maluenda, a Chilean art student. B'nai B'rith pro-
grams reach far back into the history of American Jewry
which, as a minority group in a democracy, has been con-
stantly on guard against bigotry and intolerance. The mural
symbolizes the organization's activity in behalf of freedom.

JERUSALEM Eric John-ton. President Eisen-
hower's special envoy to the Near East on regional
development projects, has returned to Washing-
ton, after hi- talk- in Cairo and Israel He brought
three projects one -ponred by the V. S. Gov-
ernment. Israel- counter-proposal and a counter-
proposal by the Arab League and he took them
away with him again None was acceptable to all
partie- concerned In another two months or so.
Mr. Juhn.-ton will be back once more.
Exceedingly little i- known of the progress of
the talks, beyond the fact that Israel proposal-
to widen the scope of the regional development
project beyond the Jordan Basin to the Negev. and
to include in it the I.itani River in Southern Leban-
on, were both turned down. Press reports from
Cairo said that some progress" was made there
when Mr. Johnston returned to the Egyptian cap-
ital for a second round of discussions prior to his
departure at the end of June; but in what direction
progress was made has not been revealed.
The need for exploiting the various rivers which
since time immemorial have been flowing without
purpose into the ocean or evaporating in the hot
desert ha- been recognized in this semi-arid area
for decades A number of major irrigation and
r>wer generating projects have been drafted, all
providing for joint Jewish Arab exploitation; but
none ever went beyond the blueprint stage, be-
cause of political differed
The discussion! with Mr John-ton were also
conducted on a political plane; so much ao, it

I-rael had no such feelings. She was primarily
interested in getting what she regards as herL

the generation of hydro power; for if. as Mr. Jo)
ton's blueprint foresees, the development proi
is based primarily on the Jordan River,
claims are well based since mo-t of the
springs originate in her territory and for at I
half of its course it runs through I-rael or la
the border. The Yarmouk. one of the Jon
tributaries also included in all three projects.]
for five and a half miles through I-rael.
I-et us briefly summarize the various projects'
(1) Mr. Johnstons "Main Plan drafted bv|

(2) Israel's "Cotton Plan." prepared by one (

less of Jordan (because, it says, that is all
irrigable land available): 87.500 acres of Lett
(with the Litani waters); and nearly 400.000 I
acres. The Cotton Plan stresses that while all I
needs of the Arab countries would be met in I
Israel would obtain what is left and at that i
less than she needs. It would generate seven I

would cost about $470,000,000. a year, over 25ye

Moses, saw how he was occupied in judging be-

Moses how to delegate his authority for the greater
advantage of his people and with benefit to him-
"The thing that thou doest is not good this is
too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it
thyself. Moreover, thou shall provide out of all
the people able men, such as fear God, men of
truth, hating covetousness, and place such over
them to be rulers of thousands and rulers of
hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens So
Moses hearkened to the voice of his father-in-law
and did all that he had said." (Exodus xviii, 13-24.)
That he did so hearken and follow this wise
counsel of his father in-law appears to be Moses'
own statement some forty years afterwards, as con-
tained in Deuteronomy I., 9, 13, and 15:
'And I spake unto you at that time saying 'I
am not able to bear you myself alone. Take you
wise men. and understanding, and known among
your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.'
And ye answered me and said, 'The thing which
thou hast spoken is good for us to do.'"
These and other similar passages distinctly prove
the practical establishment and adoption of the
essential principles of democratic government.
First, that of representation. Take you or select for
yourself not that I will make rulers over you of my
own selection; but the words of Moses are "Take
you or select for yourselves," and such as you select
I will make them rulers. Secondly, we discover

alues
over justice in Greece, in Palestine and even in
the councils of the United Nations. MfJOfta that
what we are dealing with is "chay v' moves a
literally Iift. and death question.
In this frame of reference, it is not very impor-
tant to decide whether values are wholly subjective
in nature or whether they have an objective onto
logical status We are concerned about values u
furnishing the norms which guide our reasoning
and thus ultimately control our behavior.
No one can now successfully affirm that the
Nietzchean "transvaluation of values" did not have
a devastating^ real effect on the course of world
history. And, antithetically, it is still proper in
the public consciousness to verbalize our Attach-
ment to those very values which Nietzche depre-
cated when he characterized them as the com-
ponents of a 'slave morality;" the rights of the
individual, including, and indeed especially, the
weak individual; compassion for suffering: and
those attitudes of mind which he scorned as "Ju-
daeo-Christian."
Even those who have abandoned traditional re-
ligious patterns still affirm a loyalty to the values
which Nietzche sought to overturn. It is not con-
vincing to say that they have erected a rationale for
their choices without reference to the past. Their
'feeling-judgments," or their "super-egos," or
whatever we choose to call the monitorial system
that governs choices, are constructed out of the
ideas that come down from the past. Those who
support the values that we associate with the pos-
sibilities of world survival, are on our side because
they are living on what Mumford called the "un-
earned increment of religion." We may well pon-
der how long these dividends will continue to
accrue if the principal is dissipated.
All this has a direct relationship to the campus-
situation. It supplies the background for the warn-
ings that have been coming to us from leading
educators, typified by recent statements of Dr.
Frank Aydelotte and Dr. John H. Randall, Jr. De-
claring that the next generation will determine
whether or not Western civilization will continue.
Dr. Aydelotte said that "at no time in the history
of education has the spiritual influence of what we
teach been as important as it is today." And Dr.
Kandall called on the universities to seek an "over-
arching synthesis," for, he maintained, "A new
renaissance or a trip to the graveyard lies ahead
a we grope for a new set of value to direct us."
Educators of good will are coming to recognize
the importance of the insight that it is dangerous
to fill the minds of young people with facts and
to equip their hands with skills and techniques,
without at the same time giving adequate attention
to their value equipment, to the directions and pur-
poses for which they will use their facts, techniques
and skilK
The past teaches us that there is no more likely
point of origin for a renaissance of the human
spirit than the schools, the institutions of higher
learning It should therefore enhearten us to find
that there is testimony to an acceleration on our
university campuses of a common quest for values.
In this quest, the Jewish student community
cannot afford to be non creative and non-produc-
tive Out of the distinctive potentialities of our
Jewish faith and experience, the Jewish student
community must bring to the larger campus com-
munity a positive contribution. Only as self-affirm-
Inj Jew> can our students be truly good Americans

of invitations to address DUO* Jewish and non-
Jewish groups on his observations in Israel, al-
though he has not yet set foot on the Holy Land.
Such a man is Alex J Edmison. to whom rare
honors and special tribute are not unusual. Among
his treasured possessions is a certificate of merit
signed by IS President Dwight Eisenhower
when he was Commander of the Allied Expedi-
tionary- force '" which he recognizes Edmison's
conspicuously meritorious and outstanding per-
formance of duty"" as a Canadian-civilian employee
attached to INRRA. The citation reads that Mr.
Edmison 'demonstrated initiative and devotion to

bears the signature of General Charles do Gaule.

eight years later. Mr Edmison will make his first
trip to Israel to find some of the displaced persons
whom he helped to rehabilitate, and many of
whom he helped in their efforts to go from Hit-
ler's concentration camps to permanent settlement
in the Jewish Homeland. Before leaving Montreal,
Mr Edmison told a group of his friends that he
still remembered many of the names of the prom-
ising young people whom he was able to rescue,
and in many cases he still had their photographs
which were taken in prison camps, in slave labor
gangs, or outside the crematoria from which he
was able to snatch them and send them to a new
life These were the men and women he would
like to see in Israel, to see if after the tortures
and hardships and privations of Hitler's Europe
such men could be rehabilitated. That would be

to say that 'uch a miracle could only be possible

Critic Looks at Synagogues
By DR. ALFRED WERNER
The same elemental that make a living room
[pleasant place to be in are needed to make u
Ltfogue interior comfortable and aesthetically
KfKtory The 18th century builders of Ameri-
svnag0gucs were aware of these requirements.
that'can be more comfortable, light and harmoni-
Ihan the synagogue of Newport, Rhode Island,
dicated in 1763. and recently set apart for prrs
vation as a national shrine. As for the 18th cen-
to- Charleston (South Carolina) synagogue, we
Lw its interior only from drawings and descrip-
since it was destroyed in a fire. But the
torial records and the Marquis de Lafayette's
Jerence to it as "spacious and elegant" convince
that the architect knew how to make the house
[worship a living room in a double sense: fit for
Iring. and joyfully alive.
Unfortunately, in the era from the Civil War
the second second World War many builders
synagogues designed houses of worship that

built a 'modern-' house of God. A hundred
later, architects, whether they were Gentiles
Jews, racked their brains to produce "show
ks" whose facades, as well as interiors, express
most irrational nostalgia for styles that had
connection, spiritual or otherwise, with the
istrial Age.
Today we are cured of this medievalism, of
i insistence upon Byzantine or Moorish temples,
at trend which, in secular architecture, found
; expression in the Fifth Avenue chateaux and
castles along the Hudson River, with their
rlaviihly furnished rooms, crowded with anti-
rian props Enter any of the synagogues built
since 1945, and you will find your stay re-
ng, whether you came for the spiritual uplift

irom. say. a meeting room of the Quakers.
It is a curious fact that todays temples, with
their dignity rooted in simplicity, would be most
acceptable to those stern interpreters of Judaism
in the past who vigorously objected to decorations
which might distract the worshipper. I remember
how, as a youtn in Vjcnna was dazzM by the
splendor of the so-called Turkish Temple, the syn-
agogue of the well-to-do Balkan Jews, built in the
style of a mosque, and encrusted with so much
gold leaf that one could not help wondering how
many thousands of Gulden the interior decoration
must have cost To display one's wealth is a human
weakness that may. perhaps, be forgiven in man's
social affairs, but that ought to be excluded from
his religious life. In todays religious art, one
finds a healthy tendency towards a simplicity not
to be confused with plainness, towards freedom
from ornament and affectation.
The murals, sculptures, or religious articles
to be seen in today's temples are generally "ab-
stract" in style, though never completely non-
objective. It is another curious fact that this semi-
abstract art is more in keeping with the Jewish
tradition and the Second Commandment than are
those naively narrative murals and other speci-
mens of representational art that, until recently,
invaded our temples to make them closely re-
semble churches, the only real difference being
that the latter used both Old and New Testament
motifs, whereas our synagogues limited themselves
to Old Testament stories alone. Today, even the
churches introduce increasingly "abstract" art to
replace the insipid naturalism of 19th century
paintings and sculptures. For the modern artist
is, as a rale, incapable of the religious fervor that
possessed a Giotto or Bellini, enabling these mas-
ters to produce works that were integral parts of
the Cathedral. Besides, modern man is not like
the illiterate 14th or 15th century Christian who
needed the scenes from the Holy Scriptures as a
hiblia pauperum. as a Bible substitute for those
"poor in spirit." Needless to say, the illiterate Jew
was rare, and whatever marginal drawings on
Hebrew manuscripts can be found were done as
embellishments rather than as "visual education."
The modern Jew does not have to be reminded
by ubiquitous symbols that the room he has enter-
ed is a synagogue, no more than the modern Rabbi
has to spice his sermon heavily with Biblical or
Talmudic quotations. Little more is needed than
a Hebrew inscription, in large, stylized characters;
a Shield of David; a Menorah. or another familiar
symbol to give the interior the required touch of
sanctity. The less objects clutter the House of
Worship, and the less commotion on the walls, the"
better for the congregants' concentration on that
inner life the encouragement of which is the syna-
gogue's main function.
Whenever artists are called upon to adorn a
temple, an attempt should be made to select the
best men and women to do the job (they are. this
cannot be stressed sufficiently, not necessarily

The Waterfront" set new standards in film making,
in Men of the Fighting Lady" documentary
footage and two dramatized incidents of Naval air
action on Korea made up a simple, strong war film
produced with the cooperation of the Defense De-
partment and the U.S. Navy.
In the film produced by Henry Berman the
quiet heroism of carrier based jet fliers was illus-
trated through the actions of the men on the
"Fighting Lady." Repeatedly the pilots bombed
and strafed a strategic railroad depot; with equal
determination the enemy repaired the damage so
that the pilots had to continue the monotonous
daily job of trying to erase the target.
Instead of a plot, there were the differing re-
actions of eight men to their jobs, to their duty,
and to the war in general. Dialogue was kept to
the barest minimum, suspense to the maximum,
With superlative direction This was a sincere tri-
bute to the pilots Ol the Korean "police action."
The presence of Helen Keller in the film "The
t'neonquered." made by Joseph Margolies. was a
captivating experience for moviegoers. Through
photographs and sensitive commentary by Kather-
ine Cornell, we learned hew a- a normal -baby
Helen Keller was left deaf and blind by a serious
illness and how she broke through the black cur-
tain of silence to become a brilliant scholar, and
a great humanitarian. It was a deeply moving
documentary which showed the conquering human
spirit at its best.
Producer Stanley Kramer came through again
in "The Wild One" when he combined the qualities
of a nightmare of a documentary in this melodra-
matic statement of a menacing problem in our
society. Here was realism so brutally raw and bar-
baric that many audiences were too outraged to
admit any part of its truth
But the film was a true picture of a certain seg-
ment of our youth today and of the bewildered
society that has not yet learned how to cope with
them. With frightening emotional impact. Kramer
showed us the lost young people who gang together
in aimless revolt against anything that stands in
the way of their undisciplined, momentary whim-.
They arc inarticulate, uneducated, devoid of moral
values. "The Wild One" had much to say to edu-
cators, sociologists and experts on juvenile de-
linquency
The Eddie Cantor Story" finally reached the
screen in a nostagic and sentimental musical bi-
ography that traced the career of Cantor from the
age of thirteen to
the present day.

answered a question which calked for an elucidation
of Jewish value*, with a story. He toid of a con-
versation with Waiter Rathenau in which the gifted
statesman of the Weimar Republic had said to him.
"Einstein, if any Jew tells you he goes hunting
with pleasure, he lies." Einstein would not have
cited Genesis ix4finstead, be directed our at-
tention to Jewish folk-experience to a "feeling
judgment' which is surely at the same tune a
'value-judgment But it would be empty be-
hatwristic dogmatism to say that there is no con-

development in almost three reillenia of Jewi-h

flrH undertook a large-scale medical pro-
|m in Tunisia more than five years ago. But
(re were hundred-, like Haim. who had never
preached bj it I'ntil early this year when the
launched the largest mass medical examina
i in the hi-mry of Tunisia. With HDC providing
l funds, the -taff of the veteran health organiza-
OSE. examined more than 5.000 Jewish resi-
st- Of the Tur.i- hara. or ghetto. A small number
found to be suffering from TB and many
more from trachoma, the eye disease often lea
to blindness, and tinea, or ringworm of the scalp.
Haim was one of those found to be suffering
from both trachoma and tinea Not that he hadn't
been aware of it. but somehow it had never oc-
curred to him that anything could be done about it.
But when it was impressed upon him that some-
thing could be done about it when he was told
to return for treatment, when he was followed up
by members of JDC and OSE staffs. Haim lost his
lethargy and became an eager patient.
Using modem medical techniques, including the
newest antibiotics, the OSE doctors soon halted
the progress of the trachoma, completely cured the
tinea which had afflicted Haim as long a* he could
remember.
And in the process, new vistas opened for him.
Because good food was found to be vital for better
health. Haim is today one of the 7.000 youngsters
being fed at JIX" subsidized canteens And when
he is a little older, he will have an opportunity to
go to one of the JDC-supported ORT vocational
training centers, to fit himself for something bet-
ter than the hand-to-mouth existence which has
been the lot of Tunisian Jewry for thousands of
years.
In all Tunisia a new spirit ls quickening. The
first mass medical examination reached only 5.000.
but in the near future, it will be expanded to reach
all of Tunisia's 100.000 Jews.
It is these signs of progres.s which are so heart-
ening to the tens of thousands of Jews, not only
in Tunisia but in other Moslem countries, who are
still suffering from disease, from hunger, from
need. For them, for the thousands still being
aided in Western Europe and in- the former DP
areas, for the 35.000 still dependent upon JDC
assistance in Israel, this Bosh Hashona is a time,
above all else, for hope.
For the aid which American Jewry is providing
is a harbinger of better years, of happier years.

Perhaps because they are face-to-face each day

of Berlin remember the nature of Nazism more

The Berlin chapter of the Association of Ger-
man Students, as well as groups of non-Jewish
Nazi victim-, jmned the Jewish community in de-
manding that the show be cancelled.
Otherwise, the students averred, they would be
compelled to "make use of all legal and demo-
cratic methods, so as to safeguard the self respect
of Berlin's student body
Krauss did not withdraw, however. In conse-
quence, many hundreds of Berlin Jews braved a
windswept snowy downpour to demonstrate against
him on the night of the premiere. Defiantly, some
wore the Nazi-imposed "Yellow Star" badge.
To break up the crowd, tank-like police ve-
hicles using high pressure water hoses were press-
ed into service, together with policemen who used
their nightsticks with relish The heads of several
demonstrators were bloodied. Inside the theater,
turmoil engulfed the audience.
The late Dr. Kurt Schumacher, national chair-
man of the Social Democratic Party, spoke out
bluntly in a letter to a Jewish publisher: "I am
opposed to public exhibition- by Werner Krau--

the theater, tempers mounted on all sides and a
major clash seemed in the making.
At the last minute. Krauss bowed to the gather-

20th century will ever become as repuUive as the
stylistic throwbacks built by our fathers and grand-
fathers, for ours is contemporary architecture,
whatever its shortcomings and faults. To be sure,
the temples built in the nineteen forties and nine-

v thus being forced to detect ever new
wnues of making a living, in domains not fully
ppropriated by existing vested interests, the Jews
often unwittingly pioneered along new lines of
economic endeavor and social coexistence. But
nowhere could they find a more congenial atmos-
phere for their pioneering spirit than in the United
States, an entire nation of pioneers and explorers.
Even in their lowliest occupation as peddlers
they contributed mightily to the cementing 0f na-
tional unity, the broadening of the markets for new
products and inventions, and the mutual under-
standing of country and city folk. Paradoxical as
it may sound, it was the humble peddler who, as
late as the middle of the nineteenth century,
brought to the remotest hamlets the most ad-
vanced merchandise produced by American fac-
tories, as well as the latest news of what was hap-
pening in the world at large. Beiqg a Jew, more-
over, he brought home to the most isolated farm-
steads a physical reminder of the familiar Biblical
story. To most villagers he appeared as the living
representative of that remote country with its
river Jordan and its holy cities of Jerusalem, Beth-
lehem and Nazareth, which were household names
far closer to the minds of the majority of Amer-
icans than some rivers or townships only thirty

Arrival of first Jews in Savannah, Ga. They came with Governor
James Edward Oglethorpe, the colony's founder and, in the same
year, 1733, founded Congregation Mickve Israel. Seeking a
safe berth for the Torah, the Jews could serve as heir of "Moses,
His Judicials," or of that ancient Biblical commonwealth whose
democratic patterns, based upon the worth of individual man
and social justice, many American colonies had so strenuously
tried to emulate. This month marks the opening of the cele-
bration of 300 years of Jewish settlement in the United States.
The eve of Rosh Hashona 5715 is witnessing preparations for
observances throughout the nation. Jewish contributions to
American independence and development is legion. Here, the
Torah has, indeed, found a safe berth, inspiring the spiritual
lives of early colonizers here and serving as the basis for the
high moral principles upon which this land's philosophy of
government is founded.

Perhaps there has been too much stress on the
participation and contributions of individual Jews
rather than on their contributions and participa-

and historical evalution It is regrettable that our
knowledge of American Jewish history and of con-
temporary Jewish life permits only generalizations
on the subject The most frequently mentioned
group contribution is the Hebraic influences on
American life Originating as it does from the He-
brew Scriptures, it is certainly a Jewish group

traced to direct contact with Jews While not all

role in bringing amenities of civilization to primi-

jght on the Seventeenth Century
Jacob R. Marcus, director of the American
Archives, revealed during the final days
, Hebrew Year 5714 that two previously un-
Ihed documents, throwing new light on early
?jean Jewry, and bearing on the Jewish Strug-
ch-il rUEhtfl in the new world; have.been
in the archives of the Amsterdam Jewish
Lunilv by Dr. 1 S. Emmanuel, an eminent Jew-
molir
L(h documents are petitions to Dutch author-
behall of the early New Amsterdam Jew-
ommunity.
[ir-t petition, dated June 1. 1656, was
Used by Jewish merchants in Amsterdam to
directors of the West India Company in that
frhe petition is a protest against the action of
Stuyvesant who would not permit the Jews
Amsterdam, now New York, to enjoy civil
leconomic liberties.
second petition, dated in December, 1656,
v in lti')7, was framed by representatives of
kwish community in Amsterdam. It is an ap-
1 to the Dutch municipal authorities to give
ewa civil and religious rights in order to
lhem to go to New Amsterdam.
Emmanuel, who brought these documents
he attention of Dr. Marcus for evaluation and
[sel. is an eminent scholar, formerly of Salo-
Having servejLfs a civil servant in Brazil,
now doing reWarch in the municipal, state,
ral, and Jewish archives in Holland.
the representations of petitioners, your Honors
on the 15th of February Anno 1655 consented and
permitted the Portuguese Jews to navigate and
trade in NeW Netherland, and to live and reside
there, as is shown in the requests and apostilles
[Endorsements) here annexed.
In the same sense the Honorable High Mighti-
nesses in December of 1645 ordered and demanded
the High Government in Brazil to recognize the
Jewish Nation and to let her enjoy the same rights
and protection in her business dealings and actions
as the natives of this Country.
How much more reason that the same rights
should be extended in New Netherland and in all
other places under the jurisdiction of the Com-
pany when we consider the great desolation suf-
fered by her [the Jewish | Nation and the loyalty
shown by her everywhere to the State of the Com-
pany!
However, it appears that Mr. Stuyvesant, the
General over there, does not permit the Jewish
Nation to enjoy in quietness the exercise of her
Religion, at her own expense, as she may in all
the places of the Company, and currently in this
Country; or to buy or sell real estate, to employ
Christians if there is no other possibility,, or to
trade and peddle in all places of the Company, just
as the Christians are permitted by the Company
to trade and transport in their own ships; just as
all other natives of this country, provided they
support their own poor and pay their contributions
is working closely with Dr. Marcus, an together with all the other inhabitants. Mr. Stuyve-
ority on American Jewish history, and with
American Jewish Archives, the largest reposi-
of American Jewish historical documents in
rorld. and a great center of historical writing
Ircsoarch activity.
fhe rescue and preservation of these docu-
h were made possible by the foresight of the
ctors of Ihe municipal Archives of Amsterdam,
I through the insight of the "Parnassim." or,
ers, ol the Portuguese Jewish community of
rterdam. When the directors of the Amsterdam
jives realized that the German army of occupa-
| would seize the possessions of the Portuguese
the civil authorities clandestinely took into
keeping the priceless records of the Portuguese
ih community. It was also through the genero-
of the leaders of the Jewish community in
iterdam that Dr. Emmanuel was able to consult
I unique archive in order to complete his cur-
I study ii| the Jews of Curacao.
Both hi the petitions brought to light by Dr.
fcnuel remind the Dutch authorities of rights
k ranted officially to the Jews in the new
lid, rights lmiK recognized and established in
fterdam itself, but denied by the dour Stuyve-
and his cronies to the small band of Jewish
kgees in the Dutch colony. It is petitions such
peso, which were largely responsible for the
like subsequently administered to Stuyvesant
which led to the expansion of Jewish rights
he new world.
This strggle for rights proved to be instrumen-
I as early Dutch officials recognized, even then,
Ihe achievement of equal rights for all groups.
ihe documents follow:
I the Honorable Lords Directors of the West
India Company, Chamber of the City of
Amsterdam.
With due reverence, the Merchants of the Por-
uese [Jewish] Nation of this City state that, on
sant does not follow (in all this matter) the in-
structions of this Chamber in accordance with the
orders of Her High Mightiness; therefore, petition-
ers request your Honors kindly to command the
aforesaid Stuyvesant to grant to the Portuguese
Jews everything that has been agreed upon and
to recognize and admit them as all the rest of the

der Samuel, and quoting in full Samuel's admon-
pns, conclude- in these words: "These portions of
Scripture are direct and positive; they admit
no equivocal construction. That the Almighty hath
here entered His protest against monarchical gov-
ernment is true, or the Scriptures are false.''
Unfortunately, we have in most instances only
skeleton reports of proceedings and debates of the
Federal and State conventions on the adoption of
the Constitution. Douotle.ss the model of the an-
cient commonwealth, its history and lessons, were
frequently employed by the distinguished repre
senUtives; the meagreness of the records leaves
this U> conjecture only In the Legislatures of the
various States before whom the Constitution came
for adoption, the delegates again and again re-
ferred to this original model of popular govern-
ment. In New York, for instance. Robert R. Living-
stone, the Chancellor or the State, refers to it; so
also John Lansing, who, in his speech urging its
adoption, says: "Sir. the instance from the history
of the Jewish Theocracy evince that there are cer-
tain situations in communities which will unavoid-
ably lead to results similar to those we experience.
"The Israelites were unsuccessful in war: they
were sometimes defeated by their enemies. Instead
of reflecting that these calamities were occasioned
by their sins, they sought relief in the ajBointment
of a king, in imitation of their neighbor!" So also
the Hon. Mr. John Smith, who quotes in full the
admonition of Samuel to the children of Lsrael,
de:ribing the manner in which a king woott rule
over them. In short, again and again, in and out of
our halls of legislation, was the history of the He-
brew Commonwealth referred to. narrated, re-
hearsed, and analogies drawn therefrom by the
advocates of a republican form of government in
answer to those who favored monarchy, so that the
admonitions of Samuel were as familiar to the peo-
ple of America as the words of the Lord's Prayer.
In the light of these facts it is not at all sur-
prising that the committe. which was appointed on
the same day the Declaration of Independence was
adopted, consisting of Dr. Franklin, Mr. Adams,
and Mr. Jefferson, to prepare a device for a seal for
the United States, should, as they did. have pro-
posed as such device, Pharaoh sitting in an open
chariot, a crown on his head and a sword in hi>

at their side because JWB is the community's

As the Tercentenary Year begins, American
ry can uy in truth that from Asser Levy to
He Jew- on dsty at outposts of freedom around
I world today, it has served American soldiers of
brtthi
of 300, and author of a number of books on Juda-
ism and history. Dr. Davis lectured at the Hebrew
University in Jerusalem. Haifa, Tiberias, Tel Aviv,
the communal settlement of Yavne. and Beenheba
He said he told Ins audience.^ that they inu-t
understand the United Stales inVder to see how
their co-religionists fit into American li.e. He
stressed three points:
It was deeply religious, rather than anti-re-
ligious, men who promulgated the concept of
separation of Church and state in the United
States. This doctrine not only guarantees free-
dom of religion to all Americans, but places
upon each one the responsibility for developing
his own form of religious practice.
American life is rooted in Biblical tradition,
as can be seen simply by the number of Biblical
names of towns.
The philosophy of voluntarism brings Amer-
icans of all religions together in many types of
activities.
Dr. Davis believes that the Tercentenary should
be utilized as "a new beginning" for a continuing
program of "cultural exchange" between American
Jews and Israel. This, he said, should include in-
tegration of
American Jewish
historical materi-
als into the text
books and cur-
ricula of the ov-
erall Israeli edu-
c a t i o n a I pro-
gram, and the ex-
ploitation of Is-
rael's mass me-
dia of communi-
cation such as
radio and the
press to assure
widest possible
dissemination of
such information
among the peo-
ple. In addition,
he said, Israelis
should come to
live in the Unit-
ed States or at
least visit here, and Americans, in return, should
go to Lsrael. Coupled with this should be a strenu-
ous effort to establish contact between Israel and
American intellectuals.
"An important point is that Americans should
not be only those of Jewish background," he said.
Dr. Davis stated that his views have been endorsed
by President Ben-Zvi, former Prime Minister Ben-
Gurion. Joseph Sprinzak, speaker of the Knesset,
Zalman Shazar. head of the Jewish Agency's De-
partment of Education and Culture, and Dr. Ben-
jamin Mazar, president of the Hebrew University.
Dr. Davis is co-director of the American Jew-
ish History Center, a research institute recently
established by the Jewish Theological Seminary of
America on the occasion of the American Jewish
Tercentenary. He is also a member of the National
Tercentenary Committee on Research and Publica-
tions and chairman of the Tercentenary Commit-
tee of the American Jewish Historical Society. His
book, "Jewish Religious Life and Institutions in
America," was published in Hebrew this year in
Israel.

It could happen. The Kiwanis committee could pick
that very moment to check on the application for
membership. In general, however, the merchants
were kind and many of them were generous, but
the whole idea was to help the meshullach "ex-
pedite" his business as quickly as possible.
Reb Shlnime changed all of that. Checking on
"a kosher home" was second on his list. The first
thing Reb Shloime did when he came into a town
was hold a press conference. This was indeed an
inspiration. The daily and weekly press of the
highly religious Protestant South showed a sym-
pathetic and sincere interest in Reb Shloime's proj
ects. Eventually it became a matter of local pride.
From time to time there were even editorials
thanking Reb Shloime for the opportunity he was
offering the Jewish citizens of the community, to
participate in the building of a school of religious
learning.
Reb Shloime himself never once wavered in the
attitude that his function as a meshullach was of
monumental importance. He was not an arrogant
man by any means; in fact you couldn't even have
called him "aggressive" in the style of the "go-get-
ter." There was a dignity about Reb Shloime which
seemed to say quietly, but firmly that since charity
was the most important element in the worship of
God, it was lucky for certain people to have such a
persistent liaison man between them and God;a
man who could be depended upon to make at least
two collection a year. Reb Shloime would tolerate

rights of man." "This inference," says the learned
professor, "was plausibly enforced on the Amer-
ican people, in the beginning of the year. 1776, by
a very popular but desultory writer (doubtless
meaning Thomas Paine).
"And this sentiment, with others equally well
timed, operated, with the swiftness and force of
the electric fluid, in preparing the country for a
formal separation from the British Monarch."
Many more authorities can be adduced upon the
same subject, but they would only be cumulative.
Through more than a century and a half the Puri-
tan ministers never tired of dwelling upon the
trials, sufferings, and fortitude of the children of
Israel during their long and weary wanderirjRs
from the land of their oppressors until the organ-
ization of popular government on the banks of the
Jordan. To what extent these teachings and preach-
ings served as an inspiring incentive to the Amer-
ican people in their heroic struggle for civil and
religious liberty, and to what degree the oft-quoted
warnings of the last Judge of Israel, followed by
the corroborating revelations of scriptural history,
supplied the argument that battered down the en-
slaving doctrine of "Divine Right of Kings," and
its corollaries, "Unlimited Submission," and "Non-
Resistance," we leave for the reader to draw his
own conclusion.
lirthplace of B'nai B'rith was Sinsheimer's
as.t caie in the heart of New York's lower
as: Side, where 12 men gathered in 1843 to
torn :he need for uniting lews from many

Mies (insert founded the B'nai B'rith, now
eldest and largest Jewish service organ-
aticn in the world. Its lodges, women's chap-
trs snd youth groups are located in 33 coun-
ties throughout the free world. This photo-

no argument against a deep conviction that the two
basic elements which have kept the Jews >f the
world together for two thousand years and more,

And so, all through Virginia, the Carolinas,
Georgia, and Alabama. Reb Shloime. in his.heavy-
accent, always wearing a "yarmulka." gave what
turned out to be semi annual reports" on his
"project" which was somewhere off in the North:
"During the last two years we got the land, now we
must get the building." Then again: "Now we got
the building, and we must begin to take care of the
mortgage, etc., etc." The local Jews, who had long
since forgotten what Reb Shloime was collecting
for, looked on in amazement at the ever-growing
prestige of Reb Shloime in this most Gentile sec-
tion of America, and between his visits to the town,
it was not uncommon for a Christian neighbor to
ask a merchant. "How is that Bible School coming
along?"
Years later, when committees were out solicit-
ing signatures to petitions for Palestine they found
that the most receptive ears were in the most im-
portant placesthe newspaper offices of the South
where Reb Shloime had made his regular "reports"
of "progress." But it has gone further than signa-
tures for petitions, because since the days of Reb
Shloime a Jew with a beard has been in heavy de-
mand all through the South for communal func-
tions, especially interfaith meetings
That Reb Shloime made his point there is no
doubt, because on September 14. 1938. the South-
ern Railway delayed its departure out of the
Augusta. Georgia, station by three full minutes, to
allow Reb Shloime to finish his recitation of
Shemonah-essra.

Rosh Hashona--5715
Lulman
Mamcfies
Borasfein
Ka-.li Hashona has a number of defining phras-
m Literally, it means "head of the year" and sig-
nifies the Hebrew New Year. Among others, is
Yom Haras Olam or "birthday of
the creation." It is fitting during
this festival, therefore, for Jewry
to' engage in "Cheshbon HaNe-
fesh," a .state of soul searching in
which the Jew objectively exam-
ines his record of moral princi-
ples as it was practiced during
the preceding year.
The synagogue traditionally be-
comes the environment of this
Ktltmer search. There, the individual
I peers into the deepest corners of his consciousness
I in accordance with his scruples and makes his pri-
vate conlev-ion even as he stands among other
I members of the congregation similarly engaged.
Perhaps the most moving aspect in this regard
is the liturgy to which he pays heed and gives ex-
pression. On Rosh Hashona and Yom Kippur,
therefore, the cantor of the synagogue assumes a
heightened role of importance, thus carrying the
philosophic source of religious Judaism back to the
root of its ancient history when cantors played a
central part in the worship service and when Rab-
bis, as we know them today, did not yet evolve.
Historically, the position of the cantor, com-
monly known as a "chazzan." has had an interest-
ing development. In Talmudic lore, where he is
first mentioned, his functions appeared to have
been quite different from those characterizing his
professional duties today. Among the duties of the
cant#r in ancient times was announcing in court
that sessions were to begin similar to that of

, th# Anfi- Defamation Leeou.?
te Ar.ti Defamation League of B'nai B'rith is
Lion wide agency whose aim is to combat anti-
r,,sm and bigotry and in a positive manner to
Er'and maintain good human relations. The
f js ,nt. educational arm of B'nai B'rith, the
ft and largest Jewish fraternal organization in
[oriel having been founded in New York City
IR43 It strives through the use of education, law
immunity action to narrow the gap which
to between American democratic ideals and
cticf *
iThe Iague is a creaUve organization seeking to
Id m the lives of all Americans those basic
j,udes on which good human relations are found-
Its aim is for the continual expansion of the
pnocratie way of life.
fta encyclopedias and year books, the Anti-De-
pation League of B'.nai B'rith is described as a
Cununity relations agency. Another listing is:
Irish Defense Agency. And within the parent
[anization of B'nai B'rith, ADL is catalogued as
l educational arm of this largest Jewish mem-
rfship organization in the world.
[These are bare descriptions. They do not really
^ie what ADL is. TMy do not tell that
| ADL is a program. Not in the restricted sense
I theories and outlines or ivory tower planning,
I a program of action for democratic living. It
hction? every day of the week, every week of
! year.
ADL is a philosophy. It deeply believes that
future of American Jewry is rooted in the
Inre of American democracy. That is why ADL
Inkinc. it- planning and its activities are "Amer-
letntered." ADL believes that. American Jews
. make their contribution to the fulfillment of
Imocri.tic idealseven as their Biblical forebears
tve thi te ideals to civilizationonly in the main-
tain (i American life. ADL is built on the pro-
bation 'hat bigotry which hurts any American

d. creative professionals: educators, social scien-
jts, writer.-, researchers, motion picture and radio
Dducen. Rabbis, artists, lawyers, clerical workers
.. It is 2.500 community leaders from every part
' the nation, serving Jewryand Americawith
planer and distinction as the lay leaders and re-
onal director! of ADL ... It is 20.000 volunteers,
brkini members of ADL committees in every
Inai B'rith lodge and chapter ... It is, finally, the

[nth it 11. the most energetic force for the pub-
welfare ever mobilized within the Jewish com-
piling i: the United State-.
low dots the nature of it* programs fit into the
\'qtr B'nai B'rith scheme?
A ini ati i the ADL is described as the edu-
I rni of B'nai B'rith. The League is that
ranch of B'nai B'rith which, working in the total
pmmun.'v and throughout the nation, seeks to
bdicatc anti-Semitism and bigotry and to pre-
brve. itrengthen and advance American democracy
prough the building of good human relations

In Um lurtherance of its program, the League
"perati actively with the other arms and pro-
lijm- ol B'nai B'rith.

To a major ex-

vide basic roots of ADL strength and projifcm
opportunity in this community and communities
throughout the country.
What are the sources of ADL support locally and
nationally?
The major source of ADL financial support is
the Joint Defense Appeal, in which the ADL is
joined with the American Jewish Committee. In
New York City and Chicago, the Joint Defense
Appeal raises its funds through independent cam-
paigns. Elsewhere in the nation, the Joint De-
fense Appeal derives its fund support through
allocations from the Jewish Federations and Wel-
fare funds.' Funds raised by the Joint Defense Ap-
peal are shared equally by the ADL and American
Jewish Committee.
The League also receives some financial support
from the District Grand Lodges of B'nai B'rith.
Locally, the League derives its support through
the Joint Defense Appeal, which is a beneficiary of
the Greater Miami Jewish Federation.
B'nai B'rith Lodges and Chapters implement the
ADL program through the obtaining of educational
materials for use in projects devoted to the build-
ing of good human relations.
In its concern for Human Relations, how do the
activities of ADL overlap those of the American
Jewish Committee, if at all?
The use of the word "overlap" is incorrect and
improper in the phrasing of this question. The ac-
tivities of the ADL in its concern for human rela-
tions supplement and complement those of the
American Jewish Committee. The ADL and the
American Jewish Committee are separate and dis-
tinct organizations, each with its own constituency
and philosophy.
The ADL and the American Jewish Committee
work in close cooperation in areas of mutual inter-
est and concern. There is close liasion and coopera-
tion in programming between the two agencies.
What has been this area's ADL contribution to
Human Relations locally and nationally?
Much detail would be required to answer this

What is the history of Jewish War Veterans
locally and nationally?
The Jewish War Veterans "I the IS of Amer-
ica is tht' oldest, active veterans organization in Ihis
country. It was founded in the year I89f> The
United Slates had ju-t gone through what, up to
that point in the history of the country, "as the
greatest economic crisis and depression that we
had ever witnessed Simultaneously, it was a
period of mass immigration The panic of 1893 had
brought out into the open trends hostile to minori-
ties which had become evident as earl) as 18(>0
It was the reaction u> the panic of i8 reaction expressed in the form of anti-Semitism
winch brought about the founding of the Jewish
War Veterans in l
Examination of periodicals shortly preceding
and shortl) following the tune ol the organization
'i the Jewish War Veterans in 1896, will show
innumerable references to the accusation i
trials predicated upon order- i sued In both (.rant
and Sherman which directed that when anj Jew-
i-h person was found in the territory controlled b)
tlie-e Generals, he was to be evacuated immedl
ly. his goods and possessions to be confiscated, on
the grounds, as stated b) these papers and j tur
nals, thai these Semitic persons were utilizing the
war only lor purposes Ol -e!t enrichment and self-
andizemenl Hence the organization ol the
Jewish War Veteran: in 1896 was dictated b) the
basic necessit) ol calling to the ..Mention 0| the
American public the sacrifices made b) the Ami
lean Jew, the fact that in the civil War thousands
"l"1" thousands ol the new immigrant Jews had

President Eisenhower's special envoy to the Near East on regional development proje ct s, has returned to Washington, after hitalkin Cairo and Israel He brought three projects — one -ponred by the V. S. Government. Israelcounter-proposal and a counterproposal by the Arab League — and he took them away with him again None was acceptable to all partieconcerned In another two months or so. Mr. Juhn.-ton will be back once more. Exceedingly little iknown of the progress of the talks, beyond the fact that Israel proposalto widen the scope of the regional development project beyond the Jordan Basin to the Negev. and to include in it the I.itani River in Southern Lebanon, were both turned down. Press reports from Cairo said that some progress" was made there when Mr. Johnston returned to the Egyptian capital for a second round of discussions prior to his departure at the end of June; but in what direction progress was made has not been revealed. The need for exploiting the various rivers which since time immemorial have been flowing without purpose into the ocean or evaporating in the hot desert habeen recognized in this semi-arid area for decades A number of major irrigation and r>wer generating projects have been drafted, all providing for joint Jewish Arab exploitation; but none ever went beyond the blueprint stage, because of political differed • The discussion! with Mr John-ton were also conducted on a political plane; so much ao, it Often forgot that the project which Mr Eisenhower*! ambassador brought ami the I S and I mted Nationare ready '" [inane l n lettlinj the refugeein their ""d"' A U> be concerned with in the fir-t place w„the tear that the scheme might bring Israel too great benefit r I-rael had no such feelings. She was primarily interested in getting what she regards as herL share of water both for irrigation purposesand I the generation of hydro power; for if. as Mr. Jo) ton's blueprint foresees, the development proi is based primarily on the Jordan River, claims are well based since mo-t of the springs originate in her territory and for at I half of its course it runs through I-rael or la the border. The Yarmouk. one of the Jon tributaries also included in all three projects.] for five and a half miles through I-rael. I-et us briefly summarize the various projects' (1) Mr. Johnstons "Main Plan drafted bv| Boston engineering firm, would irrigate 7.5001 of Syria. 122.500 acres of Jordan and 150.0 Israel. It would generate an annual 210 milknj killowatt hours of hydro-power It would $121,000,000. (2) Israel's "Cotton Plan." prepared by one ( America's foremost water enginers. John S. I ton. would irrigate the same part of Syria: sli; less of Jordan (because, it says, that is all irrigable land available): 87.500 acres of Lett (with the Litani waters); and nearly 400.000 I acres. The Cotton Plan stresses that while all I needs of the Arab countries would be met in I Israel would obtain what is left — and at that i less than she needs. It would generate seven I as much hydro-power as the Main Plan, and| would cost about $470,000,000. a year, over 25ye (3) All that is known of the Arab league! is that it would irrigate the maximum areasj Syria and Jordan, and only 57.500 acres of 1st It would, moreover, divert much of the Jordan! use in the Arab countries.

We have been much too long nurtured in our lifeblood by a perennial itraam from the Old World but with relatively ft m creative additions of our own. In this united communit; the need of cultivating an American Jewish heritage has become increasingly imperative, particularly with the stoppage of immigration, the destruction of the great centers of Jewish learning and thinking in the Old World and the rise of the State of Israel. Because it is a state and a nation, Israel has, by its very nature, a different approach to life, a different approach to culture and a different approach to language. Hebrew is a daily language there. In order to preserve their identity in a fruitful. creative way, American Jews must develop something new. Because of that, it la doubly imperative for them to try to reconstruct their own great heritage. The failure of our ancestors to preserve records, the failure of scholars for generations to keep that heritage alive is, therefore, not merely a matter to be deplored by some specialists or scholars. It is a vital concern to the community at large. The JWB was and is on the right track when it developed such peculiar institutions as Jewish Book Month, Jewish Music Month, Jewish History Week — with emphasis on American Jewish history — when it is cultivating that heritage creatively, beneficiently for a future community which, I for one believe, may yet achieve a creative compound of American and Jewish culture — of an American Jewish culture which may rival and perhaps even outshine some day the great creative cultures of Hellenistic Alexandria or the golden age of Spain.

The Past Year in Germany BY HERMAN WEINER JTA BONN — The Jewish community in Germany has made considerable strides toward consolidation in the year now drawing to a close, but 'normalcy'' remains an unattainable goal. At the July meeting of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, the representative body of German Jewry, its chairman, Heinz Galinski. was able to declare with deep satisfaction that a new phase of postwar Jewish history in Germany had been reached because "our right to exist is no longer in question." Nothing highlighted this change in psychological climate quite so dramatically as the establishment, with the blessings and support of the World Zionist Organization, of a Zionist Organization for Germany. Only a few years ago. all Zionist activities in Germany were closed down by order of the central Zionist authorities, so as to speed the dissolution of the residual Jewish community on German soil. Now the talk is of collecting funds for Israel, of setting up small-loan funds to stake merchants and artisans wishing to go into business for themselves on a modest Kale, of providing Jewish education for the hundreds of postwar children now reaching %  chool ago. of drafting a comprehensive cultural program. Barring a major upheaval, Jewish communities will remain in Germany lor yearto come. General recognition of this fact has paved the way for an understanding between the representatives) Jews in Germany and the world Jewish turns. Thus, the Central Welfare Agency of in Germany received a substantial alloca the Central Conference on Jewish Material( Against Germany. Most of the direct assistance to Jews in German cities, hit led by the Joint Distribution Committee, i becoming the Central Welfare Agency's bility. After a long period of increasingly bitterd ling, the dispute between the re-established I communities in Germany and the so-calk cessor organizations," about the disposition i erty that had belonged to the pre Hitler f was all but settled.

Jli^\v]isltUEIliDipidliigun Greater Miami's Cantors (IAMI. FLORIDA_ NEW YEAR EDITION1954 SECTION G (Greater Miami Greets Rosh Hashona--5715 Lulman Mamcfies Borasfein Ka-.li Hashona has a number of defining phrasM Literally, it means "head of the year" and signifies the Hebrew New Year. Among others, is Yom Haras Olam or "birthday of the creation." It is fitting during this festival, therefore, for Jewry to' engage in "Cheshbon HaNefesh," a .state of soul searching in which the Jew objectively examines his record of moral principles as it was practiced during the preceding year. The synagogue traditionally becomes the environment of this Ktltmer search. There, the individual I peers into the deepest corners of his consciousness I in accordance with his scruples and makes his private conlev-ion even as he stands among other I members of the congregation similarly engaged. Perhaps the most moving aspect in this regard is the liturgy to which he pays heed and gives expression. On Rosh Hashona and Yom Kippur, therefore, the cantor of the synagogue assumes a heightened role of importance, thus carrying the philosophic source of religious Judaism back to the root of its ancient history when cantors played a central part in the worship service and when Rabbis, as we know them today, did not yet evolve. Historically, the position of the cantor, commonly known as a "chazzan." has had an interesting development. In Talmudic lore, where he is first mentioned, his functions appeared to have been quite different from those characterizing his professional duties today. Among the duties of the cant#r in ancient times was announcing in court that sessions were to begin — similar to that of Continued on Page 5 Kelemer ffofcinson Kfeia Brummer Weinforten UH $ • t • cobbs fruit preserving company THE CITY of MIAMI BEACH Greetings ON THE New Year Our Sincere Wisfces o Everyone for a Tear of Pence, Health and Hnpniness wishes to extend BISCAYNEiTa* ON Li FUTURITY TRUCK to the Jewish citizenry of this area best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year I %  i. a I I

That the Almighty hath here entered His protest against monarchical government is true, or the Scriptures are false.'' Unfortunately, we have in most instances only skeleton reports of proceedings and debates of the Federal and State conventions on the adoption of the Constitution. Douotle.ss the model of the ancient commonwealth, its history and lessons, were frequently employed by the distinguished repre senUtives; the meagreness of the records leaves this U> conjecture only In the Legislatures of the various States before whom the Constitution came for adoption, the delegates again and again referred to this original model of popular government. In New York, for instance. Robert R. Livingstone, the Chancellor or the State, refers to it; so also John Lansing, who, in his speech urging its adoption, says: "Sir. the instance from the history of the Jewish Theocracy evince that there are certain situations in communities which will unavoidably lead to results similar to those we experience. "The Israelites were unsuccessful in war: they were sometimes defeated by their enemies. Instead of reflecting that these calamities were occasioned by their sins, they sought relief in the ajBointment of a king, in imitation of their neighbor!" So also the Hon. Mr. John Smith, who quotes in full the admonition of Samuel to the children of Lsrael, de:ribing the manner in which a king woott rule over them. In short, again and again, in and out of our halls of legislation, was the history of the Hebrew Commonwealth referred to. narrated, rehearsed, and analogies drawn therefrom by the advocates of a republican form of government in answer to those who favored monarchy, so that the admonitions of Samuel were as familiar to the people of America as the words of the Lord's Prayer. In the light of these facts it is not at all surprising that the committe. which was appointed on the same day the Declaration of Independence was adopted, consisting of Dr. Franklin, Mr. Adams, and Mr. Jefferson, to prepare a device for a seal for the United States, should, as they did. have proposed as such device, Pharaoh sitting in an open chariot, a crown on his head and a sword in hi> Continued on Page 15 Jerusalem has been an eternal symbol of Jewish faith and spirituality.

PAUL Chic' of JTA Offke in London D()N \v,tbt*4eUut year. th^f^fe STcomnninilyN concern has been directed not 'much (" its own affairs but more to those "* brethren outside of this island. This is nothing in the history of British Jewry which has a "lid record of action on behalf of Jews overseas. But thi> very f;,cl nas ol itsel raised many new oblems, not the least of which is representation the British Government on matters affecting kws ou tside of this country. The major commuL| organizations are jealous of their right to apCoach Her Majesty*! Government on matters with fhich they are concerned. These range from the llitude of the Arab states toward Israel to the jersecution ol Jews in Eastern Europe. In recent years, these bodies — chiefly the ard of Deputies and the Anglo-Jewish Associ•ion have seen a threat to their status in the tpearance of the World Jewish Congress and the oudi~t Israel World Organization, both of which Eim an equal right, but on a differing basis, to bproach the British Government. Whereas the ard and the Association present themselves to jovernmental departments as interpreting the Lw> of AngloJewry, the Congress and the AguVh do so .> representing the views of world Jewi orsani/ati. There can IKlittle doubt that separate apaches tn ministers on matters of Jewish conIrn by all these organizations retard rather than (hance the target at which all are aiming — the %  triation "t the Jewish position wherever it is dan^ered There is the legend of the Cabinet |ini.ster who, after receiving four Jewish deputaIons each of which urged on him a differing parse of ad ion to the previous delegation, was liormed that a fifth awaited an audience. "Now," Mid. "1 understand all about the Tower of %  bel."

English school children learn about Rosh Hashona in a religious school. Britain's problem has been a disorganized Jewish community which now seeks to emerge through unified leadership. '" completed There are few who do not wish them well. Fully representative approaches to the British Government can serve only to' enhance the status of the community and further the interests of those on whose behalf they are made. The question of cooperation on a wider scale was discussed at the Conference of Jewish Communities in the British Commonwealth, held in London in June. To this came representatives of most of the Jewish communities within the Commonwealth with the power to speak but not to vote or approve resolutions. This was perhaps the weakness of the conference. They agreed on the prime necessity of strengthening the ties, personal and organizational, between them, and more especially to cooperate more closely within Hie framework of those United Nations agencies with which they are associated. The talks covered a wide range of subjects with major concern being expressed at the apparently increasing distribution of anti-Semitic publications from centralized points, particularly the United States and Sweden. Fascism in Britain is today not a strong force. True, its pre-war leader. Sir Oswald Mosley, has emerged from his retirement in Eire and has addressed a number of meetings in this country. But the Jew-baiting angle is being played down. Those concerned with Jewish defense are not, however, relaxing their vigilance. Throughout the country, under the direction of a central body, observers take note of local trends and gatherings which might be made the launching board for a smearcampaign. Some concern, but not to be exaggerated, has been expressed in recent months at events like the refusal of a leading northern England golf club to admit Jews to membership, a Glasgow house builder's ban on Jewish tenants and the refusal of a south coast hotel to take in Jewish guests. In all these cases, influential sections of the national press have led the protests against racial discrimination and this fact, more than any other, has served to assure the Jewish community that it is not alone in safeguarding its rights.

In 1948 there i no Jewish cities in the Negev, and there were l„ than two thousand settlers in a baker's dozen [tiny settlement* whose chances for growth and loess were severely limited by a lack of water, today Beersheba. capital of the Negev. has a popuof 2:i.0O0. mostly immigrants, the old-new jty of Ascalon is the home of 13,00 newcomers. the Negev is a successful farming area with settlements whose population totals almost Low. This year, especially, the stock-taking in the kegev adds up to smiles on the work-weary faces f the Negev pioneers. It is apparent that the year (714 will go down in Israeli history as the year the Negev turned the corner toward ecoDime stability, when the vast investments in agritolture began to bring a return. It has been a hard rind in the Negev, and there have been times the newcomers of 1949 and '50 despaired of I future But this year the four and five-year-old ges are bringing in fine crops and this is the [ear when the roots have sunk deep enough to ake the Negev really seem to be "home." Agricultural progress has been swift and steady. i 5714. the area devoted to vegetable production tabled, zooming from 7,000 dunams to 15,400. he area given over to fruit trees and vineyards doubled, rising from 3,000 to 6,100 dunams. lilk produetion in this half of Israel which once m considered useless went up from 3.200,000 pters to 5.200.000 in a single year, while egg prouction rose by over 4,000.000 annually. In less kan two years the number of sheep -Hwned by |egev settlements jumped from 1,808 to 4.638. Even eyes allergic to figures can hardly avoid etinj; the Negev'a progress. Dusty trails have Bven way to macademized roads, highways once lanked by nothing but brown earth are now fcaded by fast-growing eucalyptus trees, empty pnd is now dotted with dozens of settlements, long of giant pipes, awaiting placement in the wiehes (it the irrigation network, criss-cross the ountnside. Hardly ., week passes without some new evifnce oi the Negev'i unprecedented growth. In a tent three-day period, for example, the local n carried two significant items — first, that ft Negev's thirteenth Area Council, or self-governl body df a number of adjacent villages, had been established, and secondly, that thirty Negev settlements would soon have electricity. The role of American Jewry in the development 'of Israels new breadbasket has be*n irreplaceable The Jewish Agency, which receives the great bulk of its funds from American Jewry through the United Jewish Appeal, has spent $19,000,000 on founding and creating new settlements in the Negev up to 5714. without considering the equivalent sums which went into the Negev's vital irrigation scheme. In the year now ending, the UJAsupported Jewish Agency is .pending £5.700.000 to expand the economy of the fledgling Negev settlements and another £5.500.000 on the big waler pipeline which will bring the waters of the Yarkon River. Israel's biggest just north of Tel Aviv, over one hundred miles south into the Negev. The Agency — together with its partner. American Jewry and the I MA serve. U godfather to agriculture in the Negev. is responsible for the establishment of each new settlement, responsible for all immigrant settlements until they are selfsupporting The program of changing a wilderness into a rich farming area is directed from a group of prefabricnted buildings on the approaches to Beersheba. and as an example trt the Negev pioneers the buildings are surrounded by 1 green lawns, ilower beds and clumps of young trees. To the 13.000 Negev farmers, this is headquarters, the home of the Agency's Mifal HaNegev or "Negev Enterprise." From here MatityaTiu Kahanovitz, the burly, weather-beaten farmer who is chief of Mifal HaNegev, and his assistants, brilliantly divided between practical types who got -their green thumbs through practice alone and agronomists trained in American Aggie schools, dash in battered jeeps from the site of a new well here to the site there of a water reservoir big as the Hollywood Bowl; from a discussion on new varieties of wheat to relative merits of sheep. This is a pioneer land, and the atmosphere at Continued on Page 11 "Dusty trails have given way to macademized roads ." TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AND PATRONS GREETINGS PARK'S MEN'S SHOP 221 E.

X JbewndUEIoiciidliiguQ FLORIDA NEW YEAR EDITION-1954 SECTION E Personalities in the History of the Jews BY EDWARD E. GRUSD (EdHor's Not: In the voluminous mass of Americana airh came to light last month, when the Hbrabam Lincoln papers were made public, were numt^r "f items depicting the relationship be|een 'be (Jreat Emancipater and the Jewish peof f hitime. Edward E. Grusd. editor of the Sdiic. Jewish Monthly, describes one incident L which Lincoln revoked an anti-Semitic order at [the befcest of B'nai B'rith.) Thr pening of the Abraham Lincoln papers to ( in the past Hebrew year 5714 brought to M| me interesting documents which reveal Br.d. i nth participation in one of the issues of the %  nil War period. These papers demonstrate that B'nai I nth was fighting against anti-Semitism in Amir,., exactly a half century before its Antipefair.:ion League was founded in 1913. The material! refers to Gen. Grant's infamous Order?-" 11. which" was issued on December 17. 1(162. A1 that time, the Federal navy was blockades ttst South to prevent cotton exports from bolIteriog the rebel economy. A number of cotton ndei anaged to evade this blockade, and among Ihi'in sere several Jews. Exploding with anger i iving this news, Gen. Grant allowed antienitic emotion to overcome his better judgment. I ii lead of taking action against all the guilty. singled out the Jews for special punishmont. Mirder \'o 11 stated that "the Jews, as a class, violating every regulation of trade established by the Treasury Department and also department orders, are hereby expelled from the department within 24 hours from receipt of this order." This note referred to Gen. Grants Department of the Missouri, which included military and civilian personnel in several midwest and southern states, Ohio, Kentucky, Missouri, etc. It seems that in addition to violating the Southern blockade, certain traders were also engaging in "black marketdealings with the Union troops themselves, many of whom were almost starving and dressed in threadbare uniforms. The injustice of Gen. Grant's order is sharpened by the fact that some 10,000 Jews were themselves in the Northern armies, plus the fact that most of the guilty traders were not JOWl at all. Great hardship to many innocent people was the immediate result of Gen. Grant's order, for hundreds were actually sent into exile from their homes and businesses, on a days notice. Many prominent Jews like Rabbis Isaac M. Wise and Max Lilienthal, as well as other outstanding Jewish personalities, protested vigorously, and some of them even came to Washington to see President Lincoln personally about the issue. The Jewish community of Paducah, Ky., sent Cesar Kaskel, who had an interview with Lincoln on January 3. 1863 Lincoln was immediately sympathetic, and in his jocular way remarked to Kaskel: "And so the children of Israel were driven from Continued on Pag* 12 u J/tm %/eavb ^wtintf* from the g&xnlttx* MR. and MRS.

The mural is dominated by three figures, Moses, Rabbi Hillel, the gentle' sage of the first century B.C.E., and a contemporary teacher. Standing beside the painting are Rabbi Benjamin M. Kahn, director of the Penn State B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation, and the painter, Antonieta Terrazas Maluenda, a Chilean art student. B'nai B'rith programs reach far back into the history of American Jewry which, as a minority group in a democracy, has been constantly on guard against bigotry and intolerance. The mural symbolizes the organization's activity in behalf of freedom.

However, this llimited it, universities and scientific research. N l professor both at Columbia and Rutgers. and research director of the National Bureau of Economic Research, and had been connected with many other scientific institutions. He had also published a number of books on the subject of economy, and from time to time had been consulted as an advisor by governmental departments. This, however, did not draw him into the ranks of the deciding political circles; he had nothing whatever to do with politics. He met "Ike" only accidentally at a reception in Columbia when Eisenhower was President of the University. So how did it happen that the President chose him as his economic advisor? Burns surmises that this is because of his economic status and opinions which were brought to light in his books. It would appear that the President and his advisors liked Burns' ideas. Apparently, the match turned out compatibly. The President and his Cabinet have great respect for Mr. Burns and his opinions. And Burns has the highest regard for the President. He praises highly Eisenhower's ability and character: "He thinks clearly and quickly absorbs every problem. He has a deep understanding of economic questions. Eisenhower always goes to the root of a problem. He has fundamental knowledge, common sense and a brilliant memory. At the same time, he possesses an open mind, devoid of any prejudice. He is capable of assimilating new ideas and blending them with his strong principles." Concerning the economic course of President Eisenhower and his Administration. Dr. Burns declared that the aims are to enlarge the productivity of the country in order to increase the national income.

The brochure underlines the "national need for trained clergymen, Rabbis, directors of religious religious day ami afternoon school educational assistance, and church seentaries." and extendth.,nks to the Bureau for its •ancc in preparing the plan.

It must be remembered | n Sinai Hospital was established in De1949 in a building which was previously h"tel and subsequently as a convalescent hospital by theArrrty Air Force. The Board of Trustees assumed the responsibility of converting this building into a general hospital, which was one of theiteimt-Mfjifttte U ifc.kuvi m tiiei•ouatry. M$Wwm"\ifmfW* t he Bftard of Trustees Wemandea the hesf anrf most modern in all equipmentrand*9pp1hJHce^-TH*''pr 1 ysical facilities are inadequate because of the growth of the hospital and the pressing demand for additional working space in all departments For example, the Out-Patient Department, which was started in one large room with four examining tables, has now grown to twelve examining tables in four rooms. The Emergency Room, which consisted of only one large examining and treatment room, had to be enlarged to a suite of three rooms. The activity in the Out-Patient Department with its fourteen clinics, cannot meet the demands for additional clinics in the present building, and must wait until new facilities are made available. The X-Ray Department has grown to three diagnostic rooms and one therapy room. What are Mount Sinai's plans for the future? One of the basic elements for the development of Mount Sinai Hospital is the need for a new hospital facility. This new building would provide adequate working space and physical facilities to meet the health needs or supplement these needs in the community. Should such a new facility be provided, it is the plan to convert the present facility, with the assistance of the United States Public Health Service into a convalescent, long-term illness program in order to meet the rounded concept of a modern Jewish general hospital. What were the hospital's major achievements during the past year? a.

William, Langer chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, criticized the administrations decision !to arm Arab nations. Stating that Secretary Dultes "woos dictators." Sen. Langer said: "Consider the wholly ill-advised jaunt of Secretary Dulles, symbolized by his presentation of a nickel-plated revolver to the Egyptian strongman. General Naguib, in the name of the American President, Dwight Eisenhower. Has not the world seen the pictures of this smalltime dictator brandishing this absurd weapon?" Sen. Langer pointed out that Egypt did not lift a hand in its own defense when Rommel threw his Nazi legions at Cairo and Alexandria. He noted that Egypt "was thrown back on its heels by the untrained regiments of poorly-armed little Israel during the litter's war for independence." The Senator asked: "Can anyone find any justification for faith in Mr. Dulles and in the future?" While advancing the shipment of arms to the Arabs, the State Department continued to ignore Israel application for similar aid which has been on file since 1952. State Department spokesmen recommended meanwhile that the Arabs receive more economic aid and that such assistance for Israel be reduced.

IRMA LINDHEIM The Huleh .> in the State of Israel Yesterday no one had heard of it it might have been the hula hula dance for all anyone knew. Today it U a „rd with meaning It il in the news. You can read of it in the newspapers You can hear it dis1 ln the corridors: and on the forum of the ITnted Nations. You can hear it argued by Arab and Jew the use of the borders between Israel and Syria the water rights of the Jordan. The echoes oi these dieesaaioni bar* Bjvead throughout tbc vorid without answers, without finality In the meantime in the swamplands of the Huleh itself, in Israeli Northern Galilee, other echoes and other -ounds are to be heard — the sounds Ol peat machines at work. There the dredges are drfdcing. the pumps pumping and the -rapple buckets are grappling with the papyrus reeds in the dense thickets of the Huleh swamps. The rcclamanen of the valley is in full swing. And theipountainoi the Lebanon and Mt Hermon from fffp the border U Syria, look down from then wed heights and wonder what it iall about.' t thousands of years the Valley of the Huleh. in Northern tfalilee had lain at their feet unchanged by the-lew-who had dared its perils What then did this disturbing of its swampy surfaces mean— thiactivity of machines and men who were cutting great swathe* in the tangled jungle of its mar-:. For unrecorded centuries the waters of the River Jordan and its tributaries had overflowed their banks and inundated the land, making of the valley a breeding place of pestilence and death A survey made during the period when Great Britain held the Mandate over Palestine revealed that in this entire region it was difficult to find a person not affected by malaria. Only scattered Bedouin tribes had dared brave the swamps and live in the Huleh Basin itself. Driven by famines from over the Jordan they would pitch their black goat hair tents on the edges of the swamplands and let their water buffaloes and herds of camels feed on the succulent, rank weeds of its marshes. Most of their children died in the first year of their lives. The population of the valley was sparse. Arabs who cultivated the land of absentee Syrian landlords had lived in the more northern section of its plateau region, and in the lowlands were scattered the first of the earlier Jewish settlers who were rich in land but so stricken in health that, while they clung to their settlements, they had little energy to do more than survive. Sir John Hope Simpson, reporting to the Mandatory Government of Palestine in 1930. said that the "Huleh is a plague spot." And so it might have remained had it not been for the new type of Jewish pioneer groups which settled in the north of the valley Its members were determined that, at all costs, the Huleh should be rid of its pall of death and be brought to life. And the cost was high. Their first born children all died of malaria — but they stayed on. Economic and political problems beset them and their colon) Tel Hal — was attacked and their great leader, Josef Trumpeldor, and others, were killed — but the) stayed on For they had concelved the idea of the birth of the valley and. in the successful development of their own colony, they felt the first stirrings of its life. But there was much that stood in the way of -w ~M% %. Dredging the Huleh swamp, •n twinging life to the valley. For fifteen Great Britain had been entrusted with the! over Palestine by the League of Nations the ( cession of draining the swamps of the Huleh I had been allowed to remain in the hands of j tee Syrian concessionaires, who had bought i the sum of twenty five thousand dollars arfj done nothing about fulfilling the terms of I cession: — the drainage of the Lake nf the I and the adjacent marshes; and the deep the River Jordan.

Not only from the floor of the Knesset, but also at weekend party rallies and in the daily press can one discern the first rigm of bids for votes next year.

Wh.n Treasurer Levi Eshkol nowadays calls the press together to explain justification for granting wage and salary earners certain income tax alleviations, somehow the word "voters" slips into a question, and everybody grins.

In spite of advantages of the McCarran Walter it has sel up our quota system on a preference and we have assisted many people in tinin completing preference affidavits in bringmembers of their family to the United States on a second, third or fourth preference, thus greatly cutting their waiting time for a visa number. The past eight months have seen new and increased activity with the problem of indemnification. Many people who were ineligible under the 1950 Law are able to apply under the Law of September 1953. enacted by the Federal Republic of Germany. Others who applied and have not received any payments, have asked to have their claims reactivated. This is done in conjunction with the United Restitution Office of New York City, which considers our office its official local cooperating agency. This briefly constitutes the major part of our work in the immigration field, and though to the average person immigration seems to be.morc limited today, our work has been increased' and become more intensive. '' I I Till Why does Council operate English classes for foreigners when they are available at Vocational High School in Miami? '"' m The Classes at the Vocational High School have been oversubscribed with a waiting list during 1953-54 of more than 500. Council maintained its three English classes"Which meet at Temple Beth Kl in conjunction with the Dade County Board of Public Instruction. The classes at the Vocational High School have been too advanced for our new Americans, and we found that the individual attention helped orient and adjust the newcomerso much faster. However, now that we have piloted this project and have made the community aware of this need, we hope that the Dade County School System will completely absorb this program within its own structure in the near future, instead of cosponsoring the classes with Council. What were in 19S4? the major achievements of Council Mrs. Aaron Council has been maintaining three classes in English at Temple Beth El and one at the Jewish Home for the Aged (this has now been discontinued), with a total attendance of 75. We'have four loan scholarships at the University of Miami. Council piloted the project for the preschool blind children and was so successful from its very beginnings that the Dade County Board of Public Instruction immediately set up a program for the blind in several of its schools, providing the ehMarooms and teachers. Council, in its turn, provided the equipment for the classrooms, decorated and equipped a pre-school classroom for the" blind, equipped and maintained a top closet and provided volunteers who acted as readers, sound-scribers and braille writers. We also provided scholarships to two of the teachers active in the blind teaching program and are conducting a class in teaching braille writing to our volunteers. We feel too that our assistance with the indemnification claims has been a major hurdle and though payments are extremely slow. we have gotten the program well on its way lor the local claimants. Our work in immigration and naturalization has been greatly intensified this past year, Continued on Page 7 M and Mrs. Wallace N.

For a turbulent half-century this mission has moved forward on a global front.

His remark would have gone unnoticed, if he had not been one of Europe's foremost geologists. Nowadays, this geologist is forced to admit that he was wrong Indeed, he now predicts unlimited resources will be found in Israel's desert land. However, practical Israeli officials, who know what it is to face disappointment, believe that the truth lies somewhere between this geologist's present opinion and his views a few years ago. Many minerals and chemicals have been found in the Negev. and several of these are being explored and exploited successfully, particularly phosphates, copper, potash, ball clay, glass sand and gypsum. Israels chief concern, however, is the status of its iron deposits With technical advice from foreign experts and with the financial assistance of investment capital derived from the State of Israel Development Issue. Israel hopes to utilize its iron ore to establish a hugh steel industry. As Israel prepares to observe its seventh High Hoi) ;>av -ea-on since becoming a nation. officials of Israel Mining Industries are conferring with British and Swiss technician! to determine whether it i worthwhile for brad t o smelt ore into pi;; iron at a time when the process cannot be operated wholly with domestic resources Israel Mining In Smml Serheere "whoa Psle* nwroeres Jews* "-U "I looked into the eyes of those children.

Despite these discoveries, which must still dergo intensive preliminary tests before tat be exploited for industrial purposes. Israeli easily accessible source of iron is iron Iron pyrites are at present imported from and are used in the sulphuric acid industry Haifa. These pyrites leave a residue of 450001 of ashes annually, from which 30000 tons of ] iron could be recovered. Israel's major problem in producing pig in has been a lack of coke, which it must import. new Danish process, however, nay offer the : tion to this difficulty The new method uses ch coal dust or oil for fuel and rotar> kilns in-1 of blast furnaces The method is especially i ed for smelting the type of ores found in Israel If I-rael should invest in a plant of this t| the nation might in the future becoflM self-* 0cfcnl in iron and steel.

I hope God will help us. The children arrive at eight oclock in the morning, and at nine they are given a cup of milk with a sandwich of butter or cheese, after which they play and sing Hebrew and Persian songs. They are given their lunch at twelve and, after washing they go to sleep for an hour, after which they again play and sing till four o'clock, when they are given another cup of milk and a sandwich and are sent home. Twice a week they are given baths JDC has provided all of the children with dresses, undergarments, sweaters and shoes. When they iirst came to the nursery, they were thin and pale, but now they are all growing strong and healthy and are very, very happy. We have school six days each week. On Friday, they go home after lunch; and on Saturday, of course, the nursery k closed. A clinic has been set up, with a nurse in ftill-time attendance and with regular visits from a doctor.

Using Israel Bond capital, the Government is in the process of completing two mills for making steel pipes, an open hearth plant that will convert pig iron and scrap metal into steel, and a rolling mill to produce steel bars. With continued financial assistance from State of Israel Bond subscribers all over the free world, and with the full scale development of its iron deposits, Israel will be able to face the New Year with the knowledge that another obstacle in its quest to achieve economic independence has been overcome.

Not counting transmigrants who stayed for a matter of months only, emigration from Germany dwindled to about 800 That total, according to the beat estimates, was more than offset by the number of Jews, both of German and DP origin, who returned from other countries. The tokens of-consolidation are there for all to see. but it would be misleading to overrate them, to equate them with the achievement of a normalization that is not in sight. The trend of developments on the wider canvas of Germany and Europe is bound to have repercussions on the future of the Jewish community. But even leaving that out of consideration, the age structure of the Jews in Germany is so unprecedentedly top-heavy, and the identification of the majority with Judaism so peripheral, that longrange prospects remain dim outside the few relatively large centers such as Berlin. Munich and Frankfurt. Although the reparations pact between West Germany and Israel was signed in Luxemburg just over two years ago. the German parliament approved it only in March of 1953. Another three months went by until the necessary procedural regulations were issued. Thus it was last summer before the very first orders could be placed with German manufacturers by the Lsrael Purchasing Mission in Germany. Its staff was competent and well primed, however, from Ambassador Shinnar down to the last buyer and secretary, so that not a day was lost. Already by August, longshoremen in Tel Aviv were unloading the initial two boatloads of reparations cargo. As Israel was ushering in last year's Rosh Hobona, the first iron beams with the "
