and Overseas Needs

Mr. Isadore Moscovitz
Editor, Southern Jewish Weekly
Jacksonville, Fla.
Dear Mr. Moscovitz:
I am enclosing herewith ma
terial on the effects of the war
on the relief, rescue and resettle
ment programs of the United Jew
ish Appeal.
In view of your splendid coop
eration in the past, I trust that
you will find it possible to publish
this material or adapt it to your
own editorial needs as you see fit.
With profoundest appreciation
of your consistent helpfulness, I
am
Sincerely yours,
Meyer F. Steinglass
Director of Publicity
Editor’s note: The war has
thrown its ring of misery around
many Jewish communities in Eu
rope and millions are in indes
cribably tragic circumstances. But
in the midst of this catastrophic
situation, we must derive hope and
courage from the fact That the
agencies represented within the
United Jewish Appeal are broad
ening the scope of their rescue ef
fort to the limit of their resour
ces. Ours is the grave responsibi
lity to make possible the fullest
implementation of their life-sus
taining and 1i f e-rebuilding pro
grams through the widest response
to the present campaign to raise
$23,000,000. Surely this is little
enough to help large sections of
our people survive, in the light of
the hundreds of millions that are
being spent daily on destruction.

Dear Editor:
From many new congregations
built by European Refugees in
Central and South America, Vene
zuela, Dominican Republic, etc.,
we received appeals to send them,
for their services, the necessary
seforim, like sedurim, machzorim,
etc. From some we also have re
quests for Sifrei Torahs. Some of
the refugees ask for Gemorahs
(Talmud), Mishnaiis, Shulchan Or
uch, and other kind of seforim for
studying. Some of them want to
build up a small library and they
ask for all kind of literature in
the Hebrew, Yiddish, English or
German language.
We are sure that many Jews in
America would be only too glad to
contribute these seforim or books
to such a worthy cause. All the :
expenses which may be incurred
from the sending of the packages
from here to the different places

We ask you, dear editor, to pub
lish our request in your newspaper
and we are sure that, because of
the large circulation of your paper,
some of the readers will help these
refugees who don’t ask for physi
cal but only for spiritual help.

Dear Editor:
I am writing you in regard to
a vital matter in which I believe
many of your readers will be in
terested, since your paper fosters
Jewish culture.
In these days of group hatred
and Jewish persecution it is a
matter of vital importance for us
Jews to gain comfort by acquaint
ing ourselves with our excellent
Hebrew literature and culture.
However, as this literature is
written in a language other than
English, namely Hebrew, Arama
ic, Greek, etc., we are unable to
understand it. I refer especially
to the Talmud.
A certain party is at present en
gaged in translating the Talmud
into English. This translation will
consist of a series of publications
containing quotations from the
Talmud and will include sayings,
maxims, ethics, proverbs, philoso
phy, traditions, religions, etc. This
translation is the means of ac
quainting the modem Jew with
his heritage.
The party compiling this fine
work is Mr. S. E. Hartmann, 71
Coolidge St., Irvington, New Jer
sey. Mr. Hartmann has already
published some booklets entitled
“Pearls of Talmud” which con
tain some Talmudic translations
into English. These “Pearls of
Talmud” booklets will be sent to
anyone upon request by writing
to Mr. Hartmann at his address,
enclosing postage.
Trusting that you will print
this letter, I am
Very truly yours,
David Konoff
Editor:
May your splendid paper con
tinue to prosper.
