With a record $1,275,000 raised so far in its 1976 cam-
ign on behalf of the UJA, the Israel Emergency Fund

inched an intensive special effort to reach and solicit
ntributors who have yet to be recorded as givers to this
it's drive.

open to all who seek a new life
there. But the Jews of Fort

communities will have to do the
rest by keening their hearts

Lautenbero called on his lis-
teners to bring to the attention
of their fellow Jews that what

They also agreed to work in

Goodman noted that the lists
of names are in two parts. One
part is made up of those who

other is of those whose gifts
were btwn $500 and just

to attain it because, as Israel's

lives depend on it."

sudden and unexpected resigna-
tion of Harold Wilson as Brit-
ain's Prime Minister deprive*
Israel and the Aaglo-Jewish
community of a close and tested
friend. His abrupt departure at
the age of 60, just 12 years after
he first became Premier, wHl
cause as much concern among
Israeli Labor leaders as in his
own British Labor Party.
One of the la6t foreign visi-
tors to call on him before the
announcement was Yigal Allon,
Israel's Foreign Minister, who
broke a return trip from Mexico
to see Wilson at his country

Jews Are
The dust is still settling
in the now-famous story of
how Mexico is now back
into the good graces of the
vast majority of Jews in the
United States and Canada.
All this following their UN
vote in late 1975.
I had an opportunity to
travel to Mexico during this
period of readjustment. 1
went with two specific ques-
tions which I felt were on
the minds of many Jews.
QUESTION one was how has
the Mexican Jewish community
fared during the recent prob-

does Mexico offer the Jewish

they weie both surprising and
First, I can report that the
Mexican Jewish community is
alive and well. Mexico's Jews
went through many of the same
agonies as America's Jews after
the UN vote on Zionism. Their
anxieties had to be greater
than our because it was their
government that was involved.
Fortunately, high ranking

The deal was concluded following a visit here by
byptian Air Force commander Vice Marshal Moham-

The Egyptians have already purchased French

prage F-l jets, powered by Atar engines and the Mi-
age III. Egypt is said to need some 200 modern com-
at aircraft to replace its 1973 war losses.
They also want some 200 helicopters that are es-
ential for commando operations and battlefield com-
ttunications. France agreed to help Egypt rebuild its
Jar arsenal after the visit to Cairo by President Valery
piscard d'Estaing last December.
Egypt is urgently in need of spare engines for its
UG combat planes. Since the Soviet Union has re-
used to supply them, Cairo is seeking the replacements
rom Western sources.

Anita Perlman might easily qualify as "South Florida's
Jewish Woman of the Year."
Not just South Florida's.
She'd qualify this or any year as America's Jevvish
Woman par excellence.
Wife, mother, grandmother, concerned citizen, and an
activist and leader in a broad range of civic, cultural, edu-
cational, health, philanthropic and fehgioas causes and in-
stitutions, Anita Perlman is a radiant exemplar of one of
Judaism's loftiest ideals: the Woman Of valor. And valorotis
she is to have accomplished so much and to be doing s6
much, still.
Anita ( man is president of the Wom-
en's Division of the Jewish Fed-
eration of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale. One tangible result of her
efforts and leadership con-
certed with those of Federation

Hermann said, "A total Arab
offensive, backed by a popula-
tion of 100 million and wide-
ranging economic and political
power, has* been" mounted *
against Israel. This offensive
must be met by a 'total mobil-
ization' of the entire Jewish
world." He emphasized the im-
portance of Israel Bonds in pro-
viding Israel with the economic
strength to meet the "threats
and dangers of the very diffi-
cult period ahead."

Hermann said: "First, U.S. mili-

Israel needs more investment

vestment funds to increase her
production for export without
which she will be unable to
reduce her tremendous balance-

Israel needs more investment
funds to finance energy pro-
grams and to make her less vul-
nerable to political and eco-
nomic pressures."
Concluding, Hermann reiter-
ated, "Israel Bonds are an act
of Jewish solidarity with Is-

Another Phony Debate
We do not-recall a single bona fide demand%f 4he
Arab faction at the United Nations for a UN debate on
the Lebanese Civil War.
In our opinion, this war has as its primary purpose
the legitimizing of the Palestine Liberation Organization
by its establishment in Lebanon as spokesman for Leba-
nese Moslems who are at a unique social and economic,
disadvantage compared with their Christian counter-
parts in the country.
Once established politically, the PLO would then be
able to ignore the Christian-Moslem confrontation in
Lebanon entirely the purpose of its projected legit-
imacy in the first place and concentrate on encircling
and confronting Israel in a war aided by Syria and Jor-
Understood in these terms, the Civil War in Leba-
non is as explosive a Middle East issue as has existed
in that part of the world since the Yom Kippur War.
As we say, we do not remember a single bona fide
Arab demand for debating this issue. Instead, this week,
we are subjected to another phony "United Nations"
arrogance an Inquiry into the unrest on the West
Bank as an explosive issue.
When will the United Nations cut out die lying and
subordinate parochial politics to the welfare of the world
at large? At this point, we would have to say that no
such possibility seems even remotely on the horizon.
Gen. Dayan's Visit Here
South Florida has a unique opportunity this week to
welcome, another great Israeli leader Gen. Moshe
Gen. Dayan was to speak at a 'Too Make the Dif-
ference" Combined Jewish Appeal -< Israel Emergency
Fund dinner on Miami Beach Thursday, -.
Gen. Dayan, as a. political and- military leader of
the beleaguered State of Israel, understands his coun-
try's difficulties, at this time better than most of us, and
what he can contribute- also to make these difficulties
more understandable to both the Jewish and general
communities here must be deemed of inestimable .value.
It is pivotaUy important that we maintain our un-
stinting support of CJA-IEF during "You Make the Dif-
ference" six-week period ending Apr. 28 dedicated to
giving, to the fund.
But it is also important that we understand, in a
detailed way, why it is that we are giving and how- our
giving does make the difference to Israel, as wedl as to
Jews nationally in our own country and in South Florida.
Gen. Dayan's appearance in our community does
much to contribute to this understanding. .
A Nazi Reconsidered
We must register our satisfaction here that Rotary
International over the weekend saw the danger involved
in the nomination of Wolfgang Wick, a former Austrian
Nazi, as president of the worldwide service organization.
Wick's nomination has been withdrawn.
For Wick to have ascended to the presidency of
Rotary International without contest would have meant
that the organization-was willing to disregard Wick's,
past as irrelevant to the office. In our view, that would
Rotary International demonstrated that people do
not really misunderstand history; only occasionally, they
find it easier to ignore history. In responding to world-
wide outrage at Wick's nomination, the organization also
demonstrated a willingness to make amends,
have lent a certain respectability to a man who does not
deserve it.
Indeed, it would have been tantamount to suggest-
ing that former Nazis are no longer undesirables. There
is no doubt that the world tends to forget, but the Nazi
past, in our view, is unforgettable. It is unforgivable.
Whenever we observe the impulse to forget and to
forgive, it is incumbent on us to prod the conscience of
those so motivated.

For centuries the Jews have prayed: "Next Year in
Is it possible to translate that ancient watchword into
i he answer is yes. And it is being done right now.
The United Jewish Appeal
and the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale are do-
ing it making 1976 the year
of Jerushalayim, "This Year in
Here's how it's being done:
the Jewish Federation has been
granted up to 100 reservations
to participate in one of the most
hi.-toric mission conferences
ever conceived. United Jewish
Appeal is moving tional conference from the
United States to Jerusalem this
year, and enlarging and en-
ng it tremendously.
We will be joining with the
other Florida communities in
this once-in-a-lifetime happen-
Arrangements have been
mi do for a 10-day trip, Oct. 21
to 31, at a very special rate that
wiH not exceed $750 round trip
from Miami to Israel. The cost,
which includes deluxe hotels,
most meals and literally dozens
of unforgettable sDecial events,
is well below normal rates.
The Fort Lauderdale delega-
tion will be led by a number of
prominent community leaders.
In Israel we will join delega-
tions from all over the United
States, numbering 3,000 in all.
The mission-conference will ac-
tually be what United Jewish
Appeal General chairman Frank
R. Lautenberg describes as a
"living laboratory."
IN ADDITION to formal busi-
ness sessions, there will be a
colorful variety of dialogues at
each of the great Israeli seats
of higher learning: the Hebrew
University in Jerusalem, Haifa
University and the Technion,
the Weiwnann Institute in Re-
hovoth, Tel Aviv and Rar-Ilan
Universities, and Ben-Gurktn
University in Beersheba.
A leadership seminar Will be
conducted by Israel's President
Ephraim Katrir in his Official
residence. Israel Minister of
Defense Shimon Pere9 Will lead
the entire conference to Harze-
rim in the Negev to see an Air
Force show. The delegates will
attenn* the annual Louis A. Pin-
ens Memorial Lecture atop the
Masada memorial.
Midway through the confer-
ence the Fort Lauderdale dele-
gation will ioin with all others in
a march of seSdariiv fhreOe-h
the streets of Jerusalem, where
its citizens will be invited to
join the Americans. The march
will be to Liberty Bell Park,
which symbolizes the historical
bond between the United States
and Israel and where Mayor
Teddy Kcllek will address the
Federation president Allen
Baer, commenting on the extra-
ordinary scope of the mission
and its meaning, said that
"through our presence and the
strong commitment that it will
express and symbolize, we will
be telling the people of Israel
that our lives are bound up with
theirs, that we are with them
now and forever." Baer con-
tinued: "The Jewish people has
always come together in times
of anxiety, crisis, emergency,
hone and solitude, because we
know to the marrow of our
bon?s that our hearts are tied
to Jerusalem. For centuries we
prayed 'Next Year in Jerusa-
lem.' In 1976, while the world
watches, we proclaim "This
Year in Jerusalem.'
"We are going to Jerusalem
for these trorposes: to reaffirm
our ties with our dearly beloved
fellow Jews, and to breathe the
air and feel the stir of a city

Israel Loses Good Friend in Wilson Bow
Continued from Page 1
ficial visit in May.
Prom Ae Jewish viewpoint,
Wilson's big achievement was
transforming the relationship
between the British Labor Party
and Israel from one of distrust
and bitter memories of the late
Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin
into one of warm friendship,
which became all the more
striking when Israel was diplo-
matically -isolated.
This correspondent remem-
bers the impact, in 1963, when
the newry elected Labor leader
announced that wlien Labor re-
gained power "there will be no
broken promises this time."
Within a year, Wilson was Prime
WILSON'S Jewish affiliations
are no secret. Both his solici-
tor, Lord Goodman, and his
doctor, Sir Julius Stone, are
Jewish. Wilson spoke frequent-
ly at Zionist functions. Among
his close government colleagues
are avowed Zionists such as
HaroM Lever, his senior eco-
nomic advisor, and Gerald
Kaaftnan, now Mimster in
Charge of Aviation.
Wikon himself was a genuine
admirer of Israel's democratic
socialism. One of Ms sons did
a stint a* a volunteer at Kfb-
buuj Vagur.
It was easier for Wilson to
get on with Israelis if only be-
cause Britain had lost its great
power role in the Middle East,
fie himself presided over the
end of Britain's East-of-Suez
role with the withdrawal from
Aden at the end of 1967.
IN THE Six-Day War. Wilson
and other ministers said they
were ready to support an inter-
national naval force to break
Egypt's blockade of the Tiran
Straits. But the idea fizzled.
Nasser mined the straits, and
war broke out.
After the June war, Wilson's
Labor government focused its
Middle Bast policy on the
United Nations, trying to com-
pensate with diplomatic experi-
ence for its to*> of global in-
fluence. The result was Security
Council Resolution 242, a mas-
terpiece of ambiguity which,
nine years later, is still referred
to as the framework of Middle
East diplomacy.
It is easy to exaggerate Wil-
son's personal impact on Brit-
ain's Middle East policies. His
sympathies did not prevent
Britain from reneging on a
promise to sen Israel Chieftain
tanks, though Wilson is said to
have offered Harrier jump-jet
fighters which Israel did not
HE HAS always had a healthy
-respect lor -Arab oil power and
never personally offended Arab
leaders. His government disap-
pointed Israel by supporting the
United Nations condemnation of
her following the fire in the El
Aksa Mosque in Jerusalem set
by a mentally ill Australian
In recent years, as a leading
figure in the Socialist Interna-
tional, Wilson has given Israel
most cause for gratitude. In the
wake of the Yom Kippur War,
when pro-Arab appeasement
was sweeping Western Europe,
Wilson provided then Premier
Golda Meir with a much need-
ed political platform when he
hosted a special emergency
meeting of socialist leaders in
HE WAS also responstve, in
office and in the opposition, to
fthe nWHt of 'Sovttt-Jews and
other dissidents. A close ac-
quaintance of Soviet Premier
Alexei Koeygin, Wilson has in-
tervened frequently behind the
scenes on behalf of hard-press
ed Individuals.
Anglo-Jewish leaders will re
gret his resignation becaOse ol
his unswerving opposition to
all forms of racial prejudice in
Britain itself. Nevertheless,; like
his old friend, Mrs. Meir, Wil
son is not leaving the political
scene entirely. He will remain
on the back benches of the
House of Commons where hie.
moral authority will protofebly

David Einhorn
f (1809-1879)
Among the hardy minds of
the Jews who gave vitality to
19th-century America was the
uncompromising Reform rabbi,
preacher and theological writer,
David Einhorn (1809-1879).
Einhorn was a European im-
migrant born in Bavaria, where
his liberal views caused the gov-
ernment 'to withhold confirma-
tion of his first rabbinical elec-
tion by a Bavarian congregation
in 1938.
At the rabbinical conference
fa Frankfort m 1845 he took a
decided stand in favor of intro-
ducing the vernacular into the
service and eliminating all pray-
ers referring to the restoration
of the Jewish state but insisted
on the accentuation of the uni-
versal character of the Mes-
sianic hope.
Three years earlier, in de-
fense of the position of Abra-
ham- Selger, he had rejected the
divine authority of the Talmud
and upheld the right to- diverge
from ceremonial laws.
IN t*47 Einhorn-became chief
rabbi of Mecklenburg-Schwerin.
Opposed! by.-'jhe conservatives,
he found wk position becoming October. 1852,
ho accepted a call as rabbi of
the Reform, congregation at
Budapest. *
The* -Austrian government,
also opposed to the Reform
movement, closed the"''temple
two months'.'later. "His opportu-
nities in-Eurooe thwarted, Ein-
horn turned his attention to a
career in the United States.
In 1*55, in his mid-40's. Ein-
horn became rabbi of the Har
Sinai Congregation of Baltimore
and soon emerged as the leader
of the radical Reform element.
In 1856 he started a monthly
magazine in Germany, "Sinai,"
ip the interests of radical Re-
form Judaism. His ideas also
found expression, in his prayer
book, "Olat Tamid," a new work
written mainly In German, Sub-
fcquently_itserj(ed, in part as a.
model for the Unii
Thion Prayer
EINHORN'S resolute uncom-
romising character, courage and
steadfast adherence to his prin-
ciples again caused him to
"move on," but this time in the
dark of night and facing threats
to his life.
In late 1860, on the eve of the
Civil War, Einhorn had emerged
as the leading rabbinical aboli-
tionist. He refused to accept
Biblical slavery as a sanction
for the "bestial" and dehuman-
izing U.S. slavery. His unspar-
ing denunciations of slavery
i laced him in danger and on
the night of April 22, 1861,
guarded by friends, he fled to
Philadelphia where he became
rabbi of Congregation Kenes-
seth Israel.
In Philadelphia, hitherto the
bulwark ef traditional Judaism,
Einhorn fought from pulpit and
his "Sinai" publication for more
liberal views.
IN 186* Einhorn moved to
New York as rabbi of Congre-
gation Adath Jeshurun. He was
the hading spirit of the rab-
binical conference, which met
at Philadelphia in 1869 and
adopted a thoroughgoing Re--
form platform.
In 1844 David Einhorn had
married Julia Ochs of Kreuz-
nnch. Of the union were born
fi"e daughters and four sons.
"If the dogmatic Reform upon
which he insisted dominated
neither the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations nor He-
brew Union College at their in-
ception." wrote Dr. Sefton Tem-
kin. "his spirit came to influ-
ence them later. Kaufman Koh-
ler. his son-in-law and disciple,
formulated the Pittsburgh Plat-
form of 1885, which was the
basis of American Reform for
a generation."*

hair of his head shall go loose, and he shall cover his

' wherein the plague is in him he shall be unclean; he is
unclean; he shall dwell alone; without the camp shah

.. Q. What is Israel's "Law
of Return"?
A. The "Law of Return,"
passed by Israel's Knesset on
July 5, 1950, the anniversary
of Theodor Herd's death, is the
most significant of the basic
laws of the State of Israel, giv-
ing legislative confirmation to
the age-old Jewish yearning
for return to Zion, the author-
itative Encyclopaedia Judaica
It declares that every Jew
has the right to settle in Is-
rael as an "oleh" (defined as
a "Jew immigrating to Israel
for settlement"). This status of
"oleh" is also accorded to all
Jews who had entered the
country as immigrants before
the law came into force and
to all Jews bom in the coun-
try, aa well as to any Jew who
goes to Israel and expresses
his desire to stay and settle
in Israel:
The Law of Return further
provides the principal method
of acquiring Israel nationality,
for the Nationality Law, 1952,
prescribes that (with certain
exceptions) every "oleh" under
the Law of Return shall be an
Israel national.
On August 23, 1954, the
Knesset adopted an amendment
to the law, empowering the
minister of the interior to with-
hold an "oleh's" visa from "a
person with a criminal past,
likely to endanger the public
The provisions of the Law have
given rise to a number of legal
problems that have come under
review by the Israel Courts, in
particular the definition of a
Jew for the purposes of the
Does the definition of the
Halakhah (Jewish religious
law) apply, namely, whoever is
born of a Jewish mother or
has been duly converted to Ju-
daism? Or does the term in-
clude-any person who bona fide
declares himself to be a Jew?
Some of the Court's interpre-
tations have aroused political
centroversy. An amendment to
the Law clarifies the definition
of a Jew along the lines of
Halakhah but, on the other
hand, sees to it that the non-
Jewish partners, children or
grandchildren of Jewish "olim"
Should not suffer any differ-
ential treatment.
The amendment, however,
omits any substantive defini-
tion of conversion, and the
question of the validity of a
conversion has played a tragic
role in Israel's public life.

Question Box
Q: What Is the "Kedushah"?
A: "Kedushah" is a noun
which means "holiness." The
Kedushah is the nime given to
the third benediction in the
basic body of Jewish prayer.
This prayer benediction declar-
es that the Almighty is "Holy"
and the worshipper, who is en-
gaged in prayer, repeats verses
taken from the Bible in which
the angels are d-scribed as
pronouncing the holiness of the
In this context man rises to
the level of the ange!* in mak-
ing the official declaratnn that
the Almighty is Holy. To some
commentaries this has the
meaning of declaring the tran-
scendence irf the Almighty.
It brings to the attention of
th* .worshipper thai although
the Almighty is far and beyond
human limits, He is still in-
volved with his human sub-
jects. He stiil cares and shows
concern 4or humanity. -
Q: Why la the "Kedushah"
of the main body of prayer re-
cited only io the presence of.
a duly constituted prayer quo-
rum, a minyan?
A: When a 'qtibrtim is present'
during the prayer and the pray-
er service becomes a public
service, something is added to
the human aggregate of souls.
There are more than the ten
people present. There are ten
people plus the Almighty Him-
self. They thus have the right
to extol Him directly since he
becomes a member of the
In the case of an individual,
h only has the right to assert
his belief in the Holiness of the
A'mlghty, but not to make the
official pronouncement.
Q: Why is the "Kedushah"
recited only in a fixed stand-
ing posture?
A* Basically the ^Kedushah"
is part of the main body of (
prayer, i.e., the "Shmoneh Esw'**-
xeh" (18 official benediction*
of prayer). St
in this sense, the worshipper
is in direct confrontation with
the Almighty Himself. The pres-
ence of "greatness" should al-
ways fill the spectator with
awe and render him motionless,
out of reverence. Therefore the
"Kedushah" is recited in a
standing motionless posture.

Jewish Women
Write About
Their Needs
JEWISH WOMEN are writing about their needs, their burdens
* and their dreams. Many are young, bursting with expressions
of their newly found and accepted liberation.
In "The Jewish Woman in America" (Dial, 1976, S&95),
Charlotte Baum, Paula Human and Sonya" Michel present a
long-awaited probe into the history, sociology and psyche of
the J*wah woman of all ages in America. The three authors
who coine from varying Jewish background* decided to in-
vestigate the phenomenon of the Jewish woman vefWrated until
the 1930s and currently reviled as either t^stereotypic "JewisTi-
mother" or a "Jewish American Princess."
AFTER A brief look at women in Jewish tradition, the
authors compare and contrast the womeh"ifrom both German
and Eastern European backgrounds in Arrtefica. They conclude
the last third of their book with a view drthe Jewish woman
in literature.
This section is actually the catalyst of their project. Baum
and Michel resented Philip Roth's portrayal of1 Sophie Pdrtnoy
in "Portnoy's Complaint." They feel that the image of the' Jew-
ish mother has been maligned and distorted over the last 40
BAUM, HYMAN and Michel have positive, strong identities
as Jews. They are trying to preserve their meaningful inherit-
ance. In their own words:
"We do not intend this book as an attack on Judaism or
Jewish men. Nor is it an apologetic defense of Jewish women.
We have tried to destroy some of the myths about Jewish
women that have severely affected their self-images, and to
replace the myths with the truth about an admirable heritage
that conventional histories have ignored. We are hereby re-
claiming our past."
THE AUTHOR of "twfcfc Borm Memoirs of an Adopted
Daughter" (McGraw-Hill,^ 19*75, $8.95) recently wrote a feature
article in the New York Times Magazine regarding the diffi-
culties an adoptee faces in discovering his or her natural
parents. Betty Jean Lifton feels very strongly that it is every
adoptee's right td know* dbobt his r/r her natural parents.
In this context, she chronicles the saga of her own search
to discover from whence she came. She traces her first home
bdek to the Hebrew Home for Infants, where her natural mother
left her; and she describes the Jewish hdmelife she had whh
her adoptive parents.
THE AUTHOR would like to see the breakdown of legal
barriers to the knowledge of one's adoption. Yet she confides
that the emotional obstacles were often more diffidlllt to deal
with than were the legal ones. But tor Mrs. Bifton, "the pain of
not knowing where one comes from outweighs all risks."
"The Mother Knot," by Jane Lazarre (McGraw-Hill, 1976,
$7.95), is another personal chronicle. A young Jewish woman
looks bflck at her first few years of motherhood.
SHE ANGRILY records the ardbfvafence she feels during
this period: love for her child, rage and grief over her loss of
self. She breaks down some of the riiyth of motherhood and
tells about the pain as well as the happiness. It should be taken
into account, though, that Lazarre is writing from an atypical
vantage point.
HER FATHER was a communist, art! she is married fo.a
Black. Without judging these facts, it still remains that many
of the problems with which she copes, are a resuk tf un-
resolved issues between her and the two most important 'men
in her life.
This had created dissatisfaction with herself even before
the birth of her son, and it continues through the first years
directly affecting the mother-child relationship.
SHE DOES offer a valid challenge to the image of perfect
motherhood, and sisterly sympathy to those women who find
the early years a trying experience:
"Although women are as different from one another as
men are although we are born with eyery kind of human
temoerament, still there is only one image in this culture ot
the 'good mother.* Most of us ivt ribt like her."

Church and Swastika:
A Union Reexamincd
A THIRD of a century after their entry into
Vatican archives, the "Roman Catholic
Church has made public"'688 pages Of infor-
mation, Insight, comment, and review dealing
frith the sensitive and tangled relationship of
:he highest papal authorities" with Hitlerism,
espettefly as cWfrtectetl with the fate* of rhil-
~*ons of martyretf and uprooted Jews.
There edit be- no end of interest in this 20th
century web of rrShielty, intrigue, negotiation,
silence, heroism, studied silence, and genocide.
And because opinions differ sharply while
loyalties churn up 'Charges of neglect and coun-
tercharges of exag*!eratioii we certainly are
now deeply in the debt ot Rome for making
public the documents calculated to throw new
light on the dramatic drama.
A SEGMENT of the public was first made
aware of strong negative feelings about the
role played by Pope Pius XII in the Church's
dealings with the Nazis when Rolf Hochhuth
produced his heavy-handed play, "The Deputy,"
in the early 1960s.
Speaking stridently through his valiant stage
priest, Father Riccardo Fontarta, the playwright
portrayed that same Pope1 whwlielped engineer
the Vatican pact with' "Hitler July 20, 1933
(while still papal secret*** as" "GodlralepUty"
who did not do all he might havtr *me to halt
the juggernaut of genocide.
"WHY'DOES the Pope nofWeathe a word
' fff the fact that where his churdh towers rise,
there too Hitler's chimneys smoke?" Hoch-
huth cried out in his searing dramarhi sketch.
The furore over "The Deputy" had not yet
subsided when the scholarly work df Ooenter
L%wy. ''The Catholic Church and Nazi Ger-
many," touched off new speculation and con-
cern. Given access to German diocesan docu-
ments and mArfy German Catholic publications,
PYbf. Lewy spent five years on the prepara-
tion and writing of his book.
UNLIKE H&CHHUTH, Lewy did not turn
the licaviest light of his examination upon
Pope Plus: rather he documented the slow but
inerttable surrender df German parishioners,
cmtrdfi leader* and priests to the wave Hitler
insisted was to be me Reich's future. These
were not evil; purpdseiylUgoted cmrfchgoers
and churdh functionaries; hut they haaVneither
the inclination nor the cdiirttge, by and large,
to swim against the Hitler tide; nor were they
heard frequently to weep when the cross was
* twisted into swastika.
Lewy gave appropriate credit in his book
to the small band of church leaders who did
fight back and to all crushed by the Hitler
nachine. (Studies indicate at least 3,000 Cath-
olic priests and many Protestant ministers
perished in concentration camps.)
BUT IN the end, he wrote forthrightly and
in strong command of much documentation:
"One is inclihed ta conclude that the Pope
nd his advisors'-mfhienced by a long condi-
tion of moderate anti-Semitism sO widely ac-
cepted in Vatitartrcrrcles did -not-View the
phght of the Jewrwffha real sens* of urgency
'--anaViwdral outrage."
It wauM be ivell for those "inclined tfB dis-
mis* the' judgments' df- Prof. Lswr as tonclu-
linm not thrtroaflhly-'sifted Through a'nd well
digested to turn to the Catholic Encyclopedia's
mwrrtirfR on'the Naris as-seen through author-
"ftatrvfe- Catholic eyes.
'THERE IS recorded Plns's deep disappoint-
Tient m Hitler in the years following the adop-
ion of the concordnt; here reference is made
to the encyclical, "Mit Brennender Sorge"
("With Burning Sorrow"), issued March 4,
1937, accusing the Nazis of "sowing the seeds
of suspicion, discord, hatred, calumny, of secret
and open fundamental hbslhity to Christ and
His Church."

A Bicentennial Salute to Financier Haym Salomon Who Helped Save Us
AS WE observe the 200th birthday of our nation,
we recall with pride that Jews and Judaism
played important roles in the exciting events mark-
ing the birth of our beloved country. We are proud
that Jewish people and Jewish ideas are still deeply
involved in the continuous spiritual growth of the
United States.
A number of patriots surrounded George Wash-
ington when this country staged its great struggle
for independence. The number of Jews in the armed
Bervicat was then, as it has always been, in a higher
ratio than tile Jews in the general population. And
no Winder.
fHE JEWS in the colonies were treated as equals.
Thev were not given every prerogative, but in the
main they were looked upon: as residents entitled
to the rights of citizenshin. without those cHsaWHtfes
, and denials which typified a lot of Jews in the.Old
I Country.
The best-known colonial hero, af the Jewish
faith was Ha?* Salomon. AKhewjh.tiie aaily.iouni-
Samuel *Jjih
gration of Jews to these shores is often described
as a Sephardic "wave," there were many Ashkenazic
Jews here in the earlv days. Salomon was indeed
an immigrant from Poland and one of the languages
that he was familiar with was Yiddish.
INDEED, Salomon was a linguist, as iS often the
case with Jews. In this regard he typifies the stress
on cultural attainments which has -barn part of the
Jewish heritage. His prowess as a linguist served
Salomon in good stead in One episode of his excit-
ing life.
When he was a prisoner of the British, he was
given special liberties because he served as trans-
lator. Salomon was astute as a financier. This skill
reflected the fact that many European Jews, denied
the right to own land and denied the right to join
various occupational guilds in Europe, took to com-
merce as a course of livelihood.
SALOMON embodied also the longtime propen-
sity of the idealistic Jews to give his heart to his
adopted land when that nation needed him. In the
Bible we read about Joseph saying the country of
Egypt. Mordecai saved the iife of the king in an-
cient Persia. A cluster of Spanish Jewish diplomats
ahd statesmen enriched the life of Spain before it
went inquisitorial.
Salomon naturally gravitated towards the support
of the colonies yearning to breathe free. He fought
bravely on the side of the freedom-seekers. He also
gave this nation, in its critical accouchement, the art
of financing. He was able to secure loans for the
infant nation in a manner emulated by few others.
