The Call for the Congress provides that it is to be held exclusively for the purpose of defining methods whereby in cooperation with the jews of the world full civil religious and political rights May be secured for the jews of All lands and All Laws discriminating against them May be a this is the underlying basis for the holding of the Congress but in addition thereto it is understood that wherever the various Peoples of any land a re or May be recognized As having rights As a people the Congress shall Endeavor to secure for the jewish people of such land if desired by them like rights and also the securing and Protection of jewish rights in palais Lluc a it was also agreed that the executive committee of the Congress should consider of placing on the program of the Congress the subject of the economic reconstruction of the jewish communities in the War zone and the executive committee decided that this question should also be by the Congress.

Moreover to pass Over the russian situation entirely the condition of the jews in Roumania and Inland would of itself be a justify option for the holding of the Congress hence the Over pling sen time a a Pat there is most urgent need for bringing before the representatives of the various Powers the discussion and favourable determination of the important issues involved.

Editor israelite sir in your Issue of 24th. There appeared a letter from or. A. Leo Oberdorfer of this City protesting against what he termed the unfair and bus is guilty of false food 110 the american jewish Congress. In committee we organizations sent delegates and the Birmingham local Congress committee was created p it is a fact that through inadvertence a Small number of organizations were omitted in the sending of the Call but is also a fact that Temple Emanuel received an invitation. To a Mistak of the Secretary of that congregation did not Forward the i letter to the 1 rabbi until after the committee had held its session. 42 a c a the local i Congress committee passed a Resolution to the effect that an invitation i be issued to the local organizations those not a Long representatives on the committee As Well As those that did to elect delegates to the nominating convention. The writer As chairman of the committee personally instructed the Secretary to see that no one was overlooked. It is True Pat. The Temple chapter was not sent an invitation but is also True that the Secretary did Forward one to the Council of jewish women and its receipt has been acknowledged although the letter in last weeks Issue made no mention of this fact. The Secretary a gives his word of Honor that a letter was also sent Tojo Fernle Emanuel although its officers Are just As insistent in denying its receipt. But to Clinch the Point of my argument that there was no secrecy practice in the preparations preceding the convention i need Only mention that. An announcement of the Assembly was printed As a news item in the two afternoon dailies of the City. A f d a regarding the aspersion cast on a family becau8eihrce of its members at in the convention i need Only say that a Little investigation of the facts would have precluded the gentleman from charging that five of them took part. In Justice to those who did represent their organizations i wish to apr that this family is represented by fifteen men and women in the various jewish bodies of Birmingham and that each of the three delegates is an Active Leader of the organization that sent him or her to the conventi a pm m e a now regarding the boasted desire of the opposition for fairness. Let us see How they applied the Golden Rule Vrh a i they had a Chance to show their Power. After some of the opposition let a a is had expressed a desire to protest the nominations a meeting of the District Board of elections was called to hear their complaints. The convention out of a desire to do the pump thing placed on this Board a number of men who known not to be in sympathy with the ideas of the majority of the members. It happened that on the night when protest was men constituted the majority of the Board. After giving the other Side fully and hour and hewing three speakers in the presentation of their protest an opposition member it the Board moved that our speak up be limited to three minutes each. This manifestly unjust motion passed and it was Only after a turbulent scene that our speakers were allowed a fair amount of time in which to present their f a the Board set aside the nominations of the convention and one of its members without authority telegraphed the result to the National Board of elections. In the meanwhile a self appointed committee composed of a number of Well known local men. Was formed and its chairman asked that members of the local Congress committee join with them in sending a message to new York requesting the holding of a new convention. This they refused to do As they desired to protest to Headquarters against the action of the District Board. In spite of this a Telegram was sent to the effect that it was the prevailing feeling that a new convention should he ordered and that All agreed As to the of undoing the work of the first convention. Against this we have voiced our protests in no Uncer a Tain manner. G a while it is True that about thirty organizations entitled to have participated in the convention did not do so or. Oberdorfer failed to state that Over one half of these Are scattered Over the state a that it was the duty of National Board of elections and not of the Birmingham Congress committee to notify them. Any one Reading his a pm they without knowing this would be justified in believing that our conduct in this regard had been unscrupulous and we feel it is Only fair that the full facts should he stated. H a we feel that the somewhat spa Castic attitude displayed by w letter against which this protest is directed on the score of the demo Cracy of the Congress movement and in regard to its possibilities for accomplishment is an unconscious indication of the disposition toward the Congress of a Large number of those who have voiced their opposition to our actions. A the National Board of elections ordered a new convention to be held before the local Congress committee and the nominating convention could make a defense and we have accepted its ruling. We shall participate in the convention and do our Best to add our mite to this great movement which we feel will result in incalculable benefits to the jewry of the world but we shall do so with the feeling that our actions and our motives have been misinterpreted and presented to the world in an unjust and prejudiced Light.

The committee consisted of the three jewish member of the Duma Friedman Gure Witch and or. Tomasch. They were accompanied by the members of the jewish political a Bureau. A a Friedman was the spokesman of the delegation aged and it Pafk we the jewish members of the Duma and their coworkers the members of the jewish political Bureau who represent various political parties within the jewish Community Greet you As the head of the temporary russian government at this solemn moment when All National and religious disabilities were abolished. It. Fell to the lot of this temporary government to blot out the disgrace of oppressive disabilities which the old government has so Long maintained. That government unable to fulfil its duty to the nation based its own Power upon the sufferings of oppressed nations. Its device was Divide and Rule. For this reason it sowed the seed of hatred Between various nationalities for by this policy it expected to turn Public indignation to another target and to Decloud the intellect of the people. Its policy life based on the old trick of blaming the weak nationalities for every Public misfortune. ? for Psi last thirty jul prs the jewish people Bufi been subjected to persecutions and insults the like of which Are not Ppd exp we Ong history of persecutions endured by our people. The old government shrank before no Cumi in Jug pm so la Kcf cution of the jews. In this Way it trampled under foot the Honor and the dignity of the russian nation it undermined its cultural and material Progress As Well As its standing among the nations of the Earth. The jews were the victims of the antisemitism of the Czar who even in the present critical Era which required a Union of All forces did not abandon his nefarious policy. Just during this critical time the jews became the victims of unparalleled cruelty. . Friedman gave a Brief list of the persecutions to which the jews were subjected of the hostages Alco a join them of the bloody attacks on jews in the War zone and of the wholesale exile of jews to Siberia. He continued a the jews knew that the rus Sian Naqi i is not to blame flt Gajc up misfortune. They knew that As Long As the russian nation to it be Fred Freedom cannot Dawn upon the jews. Jews took Active part in the movement for Liberty and waited patiently for the hour of i Jap a on which would strike for them at the same time As for other nations. This hour has arrived. The nation threw off the Yoke of the Czar and liberated itself. Obeying the expressed wish of the nation the temporary government abolished the restrictions upon All oppressed classes. A great revolution has taken place both in political and civic life. It has transformed the soul of the nation and has set ipg aed its heart. The great nation opened its arms to tie oppressed. The stepchildren became children the Stepmother. A Mother. These newly adopted Chil Dren will in common with their Brothers guard the fatherland. While working for a National autonomy the jews of Russia will co operate with All other nations and apply All their Energy and All their forces to the defeat of the enemy and to the support of the temporary government in Ttoe Endeavor to protect the Liberty Premier Lvov said in reply a i am deeply grateful for your words amp greeting. You have said properly that it was the priv Here of this govern to remove the disgrace o f , which Lay in the disablement of nations who lived with Gil russians Boundary lines.

But in recent times the scholarly work of several of the younger rabbis in this country has disproved this pessimistic Contention which in perhaps too often heard in orthodox quarters. The yemenite manuscript of Megillah edited by rabbi Price of Toronto which has lately appeared is one of the striking proofs of the above Contention. The Teminie manuscript of Megillah is the second of its kind which or. Price has edited. It is Gratifying to note that rabbi Price has dedicated his work to his former teacher prof. A Solomon Schechter. 1yp, the above manuscript with a number of others was acquired by Columbia University in 1890 by or. Ephraim Deinard who received these manuscripts from his a brother in Law who was a traveler in the Southern so men. 4�� Price Points out this manuscript was written by David mended Ben Saadia Ben Josephs who was a Reader in the Synagog that the Date of the manuscript is mar Chesh wan 1858 Sel 1546and that it is written in Sanaa. The manuscript in question is interesting bog pase As the editor Points out of its scribal As Well As its grammatical peculiarities. As Price further states there Are a number of glosses which fulfil the purpose which the talmudic commentary of Rashi does at the present time the editor i dealing with the text Calls attention to the fact that often the words a age Morrah and a cml Thith in and in East pm a pipe up flit Yahnah As Well As the a Voces memo Raj a Fefe Are pay chaps a ters. Several other peculiarities Are that a Yfe Felska data a Fammah used in preference to a a Salka a attach and that the form a a Neman is used in preference to biblical passages Are always quoted in full instead of the abbreviated verses from the Bible which Are current in our text. Price contends that the scribe must have copied his biblical quotations direct from a Bible rather than from another manuscript inasmuch As the quotations Are almost in every Case quoted correctly and More so even vocalized. There Are a number of corrections which As the editor Points out. Must have been made by a different scribe inasmuch As the corrections Are written in a different hand and in Dixie res Ink. . Price compares the Minite manuscript with the readings of the Bomberg edition. He also makes use of the two Munich manuscripts As Well As tiie Oxford manuscripts of Megillah Hananel and alfas in the first three chapters of this edition. Few fourth chapter he has Only compared the text of the manuscript with the Bomberg jmj Itlo Wolne to the fact that the Columbia authorities have refused to Send the manuscript in question to Canada. The publication in question deserves car Eft study us Smuch As it contains a number of new readings 1 which throw a Gread Deal of Light upon Many disputed Points in the text of the Vilna edition.
