And squarely in the Middle poor by Nal by Rith. See sightseer both its ends against that Middle its own anti defamation league shooting dirty looks at Bama . For the whole is engaged versus the part. In Brief by Nai by Rith is paralysed by the leftist fifth column with , kicking on the inside and this week almost causing birth of something. Right Middle of that Middle is Quot contacts h. Levy Fence Sitter fallen off a Fence. And Center of that Middle of a Middle is hardworking chairman Pohly of the speakers Bureau. It happened you know on account of a speaker. Forget the show. Truly it is with a heavy heart i write this account that you May know How to work and what to do i am hewing Here letting the chips Bounce up my neck. A suburban atom went berserk and the rubble will be refolded into a policy. A i am worried sick a said the grave George Hexter of the committee Quot Over the apparent inability of some jews to realize where they re rabbi Fineberg expert on the staff agreed with him. The topic was the Rotten limb our fellow travellers Are on in the Rushing momentum of the world situation. A ooh what can we do a i added my Wail a to get those noisy friends of ours to quit their hypnotic Yelling and get Down to quiet in romantic thinking a the answer came at once. It was the Fate of William Gailmor eccentric Rad orator to be the fuse to this bomb. Gailmor was Quot Margo is a once. It is not germane to this discussion to Tell his personal ups and Downs. But hundreds of Hadassah ites dragged their tired husbands to taste of his Wisdom. And lately they swooned in droves for he hates England. Not theirs to reason Why. I go for a Man who Burns at England say our jews not for these hebrews to consider him the Ultra controversial figure he is and to Ponder his repudiation. Not theirs to remember his removal from radio stations re instatement and removals again. He has never been known All these years to criticize the soviet line on anything. And Seldom did he admit our America to be right. Gailmor has the right to speak somewhere Many places in fact. The question was should he be sponsored by a jewish group Here today the question was does or does not by Nai by Rith sponsor Gailmor a a a it was sunny tuesday afternoon sept. 3. The Young blonde receptionist smiled and admitted me to Benjamin Epstein a office at the . Ben is the director of the East. Shrewd Hail fellow Ben glanced at me electric with worry. Quot Gailmor you say the topics giving me a he gazed at Stocky emphatic Frank Trager. A a we be got to Stop this infiltration into jewish life a Trager cried. Quot of a foreign Power a i parried. Quot that a it a they agreed. Quot once and for All the Gailmor must be shown their place a Epstein asserted. A i never know whether by Nai by Rith is sponsoring him or whether it and his Chin set he considered a minute and picked up the phone. Gailmor was coming to Yonkers my town. These had been my tidings to him. I had objected up at our Lodge. But to our innocents to Call anyone a communist was yes anyone. He picked up that phone. . S Levy was on. A Yonkers folks Are announcing Gailmor As our baby a Ben flamed. A is he or Isnit he once and for All a it was 4 00 p. M. The answer was disgusting to Ben. �?�1 can to make head or Tail of it a in declared. A a he a harmful that speaker. You invite father Coughlin would you you have Gerald Smith would you a Well the rift was on. As i left i was promised help from the . Quot keep up the Good fight. We re Back of a sunday the 15th, hades broke Loose. The Yonkers scandal Sheet smeared the sordid Gailmor Story with personal details of record Over the town. The editorial and news article wanted to know what the jews meant by it. And also what the catholics were going to do about these jews. The following night we had a Board meeting. Our men had been conferring with . All Day. And that August body had dropped everything else. The Day meeting had comprised Gutstadt Forster Levy Epstein Shein Berg Law director Cowin and others. They Laboured and brought Forth in spite of Quot Thunder rolling have Gailmor that thursday anyway. To spite the scandal Sheet. Also two Brilliant ideas have rabbi Schultz debate Gailmor As an added attraction. And a a Evite prominent that night i declined the bait and Many of us begged the thing be called off. Tempers flared. It Wasny to called off. Solo Bill scheduled. Unknown to us Quot prominent catholics had other fish to Fry. The City staggered the next morning under the Impact of open conflict Between catholics and jews. The knights of dear or. Segal a a Gentile Friend of mine has been speaking to me about her intention to become jewish. She seems determined. As a Friend of hers i have tried to dissuade her from her purpose. Quot Alma a i Tell her Quot i done to mind at All having you As a jewish Friend but i should warn you. Its hard to be a jew and a jewish life Isnit a very Happy one considering what jews have to take. Quot even in this country there is a lot of prejudice against the jews and Why should you voluntarily take up Judaism Why can to you just keep on being a Good Christian Quot she replies that the rational jewish religion is More acceptable to her mind. She has studied All the religions. She just does no to understand Why i a jewish woman should try to argue her out of a step that is approved by her mind and conscience. Moreover since i advise her to try to keep on being a Good Christian she asks what nobler thing can a Good Christian do than voluntarily to share the lot of the jews a what can you do with a girl like that 1 should add that Alma is a Normal girl. If it Means anything i show cd say that she is a very Good Tennis player. That somehow suggests a person without psychiatric difficulties. Nor As some May. Like to surmise is Alma a frustrated spinster. She is a most personable Young woman about 26 and but for her Cepter Long ago one of the Many opportunities she has had to be married. I am writing to ask what additional arguments i can give her against becoming jewish. A. T. Cincinnati. My dear a. To yes i know the compassionate Way of jews to keep religious outsiders As Alma away from the afflictions that go with being jewish. A kindly generous people we feel we must warn those who by conversion would go along with us to share our burdens. Our rabbis meticulously admonish prospective converts on the tribulations of the jews. They Tell people like Alma that As gentiles they have Only their pains to carry but As jews they will carry two loads their personal problems and the heavier problems of the group As Well. The rabbis stand at the Gates conscientiously to warn away All such newcomers. But if Alma came to me i would make her Welcome to jewish life not because her conversion would increase the jewish population by one but because she looks like a courageous character. A certainly no courageous character should be turned away from Israel in which there Are pusillanimous people who at times Are Given to wondering Why they were born jewish 1 would say to her Quot Welcome dear Alma to the discipline of character and to the feeling of brotherhood that is for those who understand what being jewish is Alii about. A sure there s a lot of pain in being jewish. You May feel it even in a night club in a moment when everybody is trying to have a Good time. Of a sudden somebody May make a cutting remark about jews. Quot or you May feel it when you go to look for a Job and they ask you what your religion is and you reply that you Are jewish. The employment manager seems to grow cold though a moment ago when he knew you Only As Alma you seemed to be enjoying the favor of his managerial judgment. He says he will let you know but you never will hear from him again. Quot or if you Ever get Rich and vain though i guess you never can turn out to be a girl with the vice of vanity you May think of belonging to the mine aha country club. The directors of the mine aha country club vote no nothing doing Here for Alma she is jewish. But that s the least of All the afflictions since it hurts Only ones vanity. And any Way even some jewish clubs done to take All jews either a but you dear Alma will mind none of that. As one who understands Why she is jewish you will be sure of your aristocracy f mean the aristocracy of the jews who Are aware of spiritual and moral possessions. The aristocracy of people who know they go Back All the Way to Sinai where the commandments were Given a their riches Are the Law and the prophets by which they govern the conduct of their lives. Their genealogy contains saints sages and martyrs Moses who gave the Law and David who Sang to god in the Valley of the Shadow by the still Waters Isaiah whose speeches keep on being trumpets for Justice Malachi who preached brotherhood. Have we not All one father. A you Are joining a great company dear Alma. Its a company in which a mindful jew walks with lofty dignity and self respect and what if his head is beaten and bloodied he says in this Good company i must watch my step i must go where these old Kinsmen of mine Lead. I May not fall behind them on their Way to the Mountain top. Quot this is the blessed dispel spline of character that goes with being a jew who understands what is required of a jew. A i should Tell you also about the social discipline of being jewish. As a jew you will never be allowed to go your own Way apart from the jewish people. You will constantly be hearing of brotherly duty however far the Brothers Are away from you. Quot the brother hungers and what a the difference that he resides in Manchuria Shanghai or in Kielce Poland. He is a brother though you have never seen him and he must be fed. He is one of the human kind who happens to be jewish and therefore your special obligation. Quot or lest you forget enemies will always be pushing you Back into an awareness of your Brothers. You can depend on that. You dear Alma will say Quot thank god for that. I am not allowed to forget my Brothers in the world. As a jew i seem to be a privileged person who is made a social being by the discipline of a that Way i should speak to Alma and rejoice that one like her was coming among copyright seven arte features address letters to or. Segal at the Cincinnati Post. Cincinnati. O. Columbus even As we argued had resolved and sent the Resolution to the press that the by Nai by Rith be told to cancel Gailmor As he was anti Catholic and an Quot affront to catholics. That Day the . Reversed itself. That night we in town reversed ourselves. Gailmor was out. But the Lodge told the press it Quot resented the k. Of c. Action certainly Good people Are going to Quot Patch the thing up locally. It is really True that there is general anxiety to forget. But the after taste is Here and lets Hope its Short lived. I ask you if no defense agencies existed and if there were no a experts a could a worse result possibly have been produced a and now nationally equivocation has had its end. And if i can contribute to the opening of doors and the airing of the matter and the breathing of the air Well Here we Are. I imagine the Over All a crack will be Franker now. Its elected president Henry Epstein recently said that communists have espoused Many Liberal causes making it necessary for jewish Liberal groups to exercise constant vigilance lest they provide a pretext for linking them with communists. He would put it More strongly today. Of i did no to mention the american jewish Congress at ail Well it does Good work in other Fields. But this Issue it Hasni to heard it even exists. You ask the Congress about it and to it nods starts snoring and wraps itself tightly in its Pink Blanket which feels heavy As an Iron curtain when you try to pull address rabbi Schultz at 6b Hamilton Are., lookers to n. notice to new so rapid hag been the growth of the Post in the past few months that our Supply of Tina Lorn and a Cook Book thought adequate for at least through october has been exhausted the new Supply will not be ready for several weeks yet but the it ook will be shipped to you promptly at that time. for school and Home use either As text or reference Book on fundamentals of Judaism t Send one Dollar Bill Totan Iid publications p.
