THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY
Palestine’s Chief Rabbi Speaks
By SOLOMON KERSTEIN
(Editor’s Note: Dr. Isaac Halevi Herzog, Chief Rabbi of Pales
tine, recently arrived in the United States to seek support for
the forces of orthodoxy and the rescue of rabbis and students in
Europe. In this interview he expounds his views on religious
questions and foresees Palestine as the center of religious au
thority for the Jews of the world.)
(Continued from Last Week)
I may add that Jerusalem is al
ready a center of traditional Jew
ish scholarship whicli has no rival
anywhere in the Diaspora. This
applies not only to the present mo
ment, after the destruction of the
Polish community and its centers
of learning, but even to the days
before the outbreak of the present
war. Every day brings to the Holy
City famous Jewish scholars from
abroad.
“American Jewry ought to take
a special interest in this important
Rabbinate and must be assisted in
securing the economic position of
its members, in erecting a proper
structure to house the High Court
so that it may command the pres
tige befitting such an institution.
The present quarters in a rented
house are hardly becoming.”
“What do you think of the fav
orite project of the Mizrachi,” I
asked Rabbi Herzog, “to convene
in Jerusalem, after the war, a
congress of Orthodox Jewry, with
a view to introducing unity in the
ranks of traditional Judaism?”
Rabbi Herzog asserted: “Need
less to say, I am very enthusiastic
over the idea of a world orthodox
Jewish conclave in Jerusalem, to
take place after the war and to
be composed of the representa
tives of the orthodox rabbinate
and of recognized traditional Jew
ish communal organizations
throughout the world. The pro
posed congress would have to set
as its objective to settle all dif
ferences, to awaken an enthusias
tic response in the ranks of loyal
brethren all over the world to
unite, to divest themselves of the
petty squabbles and facetiousness
and to band themselves together
for the sake of Him that dwelleth
in Zion, to organize for work in
behalf of our Torah and our faith.
We must give support and insure
the existence of our yeshivas and
other institutions of learning; we
must organize for the observance
of the Sabbath, of kashruth and
of the sanctity of the home; so
that we may, with God’s help,
find strength to build together a
Jewish Homeland in Palestine
based on the principles of the
Holy Torah.”
Traditional Judaism and the
Political Situation
“How far, in your opinion,” I
asked the distinguished visitor,
“could the Chief Rabbinate, as the
representative body of religious
Jewry, exert its influence on the
political situation after the war
when the terms of peace are dis
cussed?”
Here the Chief Rabbi indicted
in brief his plans for the near fu
ture:
“It is of the utmost importance
for traditional Jewry that the
Chief Rabbinate for Palestine
should take its proper place in the
representation of the Jewish peo
ple at the peace conference after
the war. The Chief Rabbinate has
men who are fit to represent the
Jews and to lend prestige to Jew
ish representation. Needless to
say, it is of vital importance for
the Jews that the interest of or
thodoxy in the religious and com
munal life of the Jews both in
Palestine and in the Diaspora
should be represented.”
“What is the aim of your trip
to America?” I inquired. He re
plied:
“The main object of my trip is,
generally speaking, weU known.
Since the outbreak of the war I
have been making efforts to make
it possible for the yeshivos of Lith
uania and Poland to be transplant
ed into the Holy Land. It is the
sacred duty of our brethren in
America to salvage what can be
salvaged from the terrible con
flagration. Only two countries—
Palestine and the United States
of America—can be counted on in
any project of this kind. Bring
as many as you can into America,
but it is impossible to bring all
the rabbis and students of the
yeshivos into this country within
a short space of time, and the
time is very urgent. Nor do I
think it would be possible to bring
all of them into Palestine in so
short a time. Between the two
countries, a large number of scho
lars could be saved.
“I submitted a petition to the
Palestine Government asking for
1,500 certificates for students and
250 certificates for rabbis. In or
der to obtain the certificates for
the students I must secure funds
sufficient to assure their subsis
tence for a period of time. I must
also find money for their dwelling.
I require a sum of at least 100,-
000 pounds ($400,000).
“I am also very much concerned
with the fate of the educational
and charitable institutions of the
old yishuv. These institutions,
which have been in existence for
many years are now in a terrible
plight. Their sources of revenue
from Europe have been stopped by
the war, while, I am sorry to say,
even the support from America is
becoming increasingly meager. We
must not neglect these mainstays
of religious life in Palestine nor
the sources of livelihood for its
most loyal and steadfast members.
I should like to repeat what I have
already said—that our brethren in
America are in the same position
as Joseph was when Providence
sent him on to Egypt so that he
might be of sustenance and suc
cor to his brethren, I now call
upon you, Jews of America, in this
most tragic of times in the his
tory of our people since the De-

Jewish Woman Is
Given Valor Award
LONDON (JTA) —Miss Rosalie
Gassman, a 29-year-old Jewish
girl residing in London’s East End,
has been awarded the British Em
pire Medal for heroism. Miss
Gassman is the first woman to
receive the new medal. The award
was instituted only three weeks
ago and takes precedence over
the Order of the British Empire,
hitherto the chief award for civ
ilians, except for the George Med
al..
The citation stated that the
award was made in recognition of
Miss Gassman’s exceptional con
duct as a telephone operator at
an auxiliary fire station during a
severe air-raid. She remained on
duty throughout the night after a
bomb falling outside the station
caused the collapse of the garage
in which the station was housed.
In adition to maintaining the
post’s communication, she cared
for several casualties. Miss Gass
man is chairman of the British
W.1.Z.0. Youth Center.
The George Medal for gallantry
has been awarded to a Jewish aux
iliary fireman, Andrew Nunes Na
barro, of Portsmouth. According
to his citation, he took charge of
operations to rescue people from
collapsing buildings and to con
trol fires during a heavy raid on
the town. Corporal Leslie Gins
berg, of the Royal Fusiliers, has
been awarded the Military Medal
for “gallant and distinguished
services” in the Middle East.
struction, to rise to the need of
the great moment and to the
greatness of the task placed upon
this generation by Providence.
May the loving kindness of the
Almighty be upon us all and may
we live to see with our own eyes
the full salvation of Israel and the
fulfillment of the words of our
great prophets of truth, of right
eousness and of peace.”
