Treasured Churchill letter is revealed with the passing of one of the worlds greats sir Winston Churchill there has come to Light recently a letter from Cantor Myro Glass to sir Winston when he was in Indianapolis on a lecture tour Back in 1932, Cantor Glass upon the occasion of this lecture tour sent the following letter to sir Winston who was then staying at the Marott hotel the Hon. Winston Churchill Marott hotel City dear sir i am taking the Liberty of addressing you and offering you this entirely unsolicited gift because of my profound admiration for your services to the jewish people through zionist work. Even in Indianapolis which is so far removed from the Cen town crier we have purposefully not answered the letters that were prompted by our recital Here of the need for a Strong vibrant orthodoxy in Indianapolis. Whether we have proved our Point or not there is a View whether widespread or not that the Community and orthodoxy both would be better off if orthodoxy in Indianapolis were not fragmented. We know of course As you read yourself that Saharah the Filla congregation is not interested in a merger with by Nai torah. But is that really so might it not be that Saharah Tewilla is opposed to a merger under s o m e conditions but might Welcome a merger under others. The idea of a merger is not new. It has been under discussion for a number of years with different administrations of both Saharah Tewilla and by Nai torah. Consequently when Saharah Tewilla rejects the offer to negotiate they May have in mind previous talks and previous Points of disagreement or even of agreement. The Post and opinion proposes that new talks be initiated but with a committee of the third part involved too. In other words both congregations will appoint committees and there will be a third committee of City wide representatives who Are favourable to orthodoxy and who have reputations of being fair minded while being at the same time leaders and workers in All jewish Community affairs. Saharah Tewilla is an Independent synagogue. It has a perfect right to go its own Way. We live in a democracy and no one would think of trying to Tell Saharah Tewilla what to do. On the other hand unless Saharah Tewilla is willing to sit Down with the committees and explore the possibilities it is acting unilaterally and with a negation of democratic principles. We Hope that the membership of Saharah Tewilla which could have views different from those of its Board and officers will consider seriously the proposal offered Here. Saharah Tewilla has exploited its position and this too is proper. It has purchased a site up North it has launched a membership drive and it has proceeded to go about its business. B Nai torah on the other hand although the larger of the two by far has been tied Down by circumstances. It purchased the old Beth Al refurbished it to make it into a Fine edifice and May not be in a position to move for another decade even though fewer and fewer jewish families reside in the neighbourhood.
