I The Jews ARE Different
The education of the American in the folkways of the
[jews is considerably furthered by Waldo Franks self-
Ireverent article iri The Saturday Evening Post entitled “The
[jews ARE Different.” The “red, white and blue herring”
|which Judge Jerome Frank recently drew across the truth
|of Jewish character and aspirations is stingingly labeled
[“rankly rotten herrings” by a man who evokes out of the
|jewish past all the nobility of its tradition and all the
|flaming fire of its passion for the democratic and American
[way of life.
An awesome responsibility rested on the Post in pre
senting to its more than 3,000,000 readers an analysis of a
[people already scarred by the misunderstanding of its
[fellow-citizens. But if the Post was condemned for having
[opened its fabulously influential columns to the ill-consid
[ered meanderings of Jerome Frank, it must be lauded for
[its fairness in giving space to'the rebuttal by Waldo Frank,
|whose Jewish experiences are reflected in numerous novels
|and essays of beauty and power. ,
For Waldo Frank there was no occasion for apology.
[The Jews in the past and the present have a place in the
[framework of democracy. Waldo Frank has merely par
aphrased the classic prophetic definition of the Jewish role
jin reminding Saturday Evening Post readers that the Jews
[have a “simple way of life.” He points out that “it starts
|from this knowledge that life has meaning, and that ev
ery man, woman and nation can discover life’s meaning—
which is, to win the world, under God, through justice,
mercy and love for the brotherhood of man. It is as simple
as that. And this, literally, is all the dogma there is to
Judaism; all else is commentary. Under this single law
the dignity and the joyous destiny of all men become law;
individual mercy and social justice become law; democracy
becomes the law.
We recommend this Saturday Evening Post article as
required reading for every Je\v so that he may acquire a
deeper appreciation of his mission and a profounder love of
his heritage. Waldo Frank has rendered a great service in
so eloquently and succinctly stating the case 1 for the Jewish
people’s existence and survival.

THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY
Heard In The
Lobbies
BY DAVID DEUTSCH
PEACE, HALLELUJAH
Watch for a wide-open split in
the Central Conference of Amer
ican Rabbis, with a possible sep
arate convention this summer to
create a new body free of the
Zionist taint.” . . . Old-time
Zionist-haters have dug Samuel
H. Goldenson from the peace of
New York’s Temple Emanu-El to
serve as “front” for a campaign
against “nationalism” which has
the backing of one of the large—
in power, not in members—Jewish
organizations whose president re
cently threatened a knock-down,
drag-out fight with American
Zionists . , . Passage of a resolu
tion favoring the Jewish Army
at recent Cincinnati confab of
the! C. C. A. R. riled the old men,
who are joined by a few newer
men of the cloth who’ve been
made to feel that better pulpits
are in the offing for the Zion
defamers . . . The gentlemen who
get beet-faced when Zionism is
mentioned took it hard when their
colleague, A. H. Silver, delivered
j the sermon marking the centen
; nial of the first Reform congre
! gation in the U. S. A. showing
1 that the fellows who hated Pal
estine in 1842 had been proved
wrong by the events of the cen
tury . . . Silver spoke so power
fully that the people who ordinar
ily don’t attend other rabbi’s
services showered him with ap
plause afterward ... So when an
AP dispatch came from London
that the Cleveland rabbi had
spoken a good word for the Jew
ish Army in high places, his ene
mies thought this was a swell
chance to take a rap at him and
to discredit him in London . . .
That’s what they call cricket,
1 these old Eton boys who issued
| a statement against a Jewish
' Army of Palestine pioneers.
AFTERMATH
, Wonder if Wesley Stout’s resig
nation from the editorship of the
S. E. P. had anything to do with
those Jewish articles the Post’s
been running? They say the de
parture had to do with differences
about isolationism, but still this
controversial crusading couldn’t
have set very well on the stom
achs of the conservative owners
of the Post . . . Milton Mayer,
Chicagoan who took a heavy swat
at Marshall Field and the Chicago
Sun in the Nation, is the boy
whom Stout got to write the cur
rent “The Case Against the Jew.”
Denying Communist influence,
Mayer, assistant to Robert Hutch
ins, Chicago U. prexy, points out
he was once called a Nazi agent.
. . . While the Zionist Organiza
tion slashes its deficit by turning
its New Palestine from a weekly
into a monthly, the story goes
that the Contemporary Jewish
Record costs the American Jew
ish'Committee $50,000 a year . . .
Walter Winchell may go off the
air any day now, since the Jer
gens’ advertising agency has been
told by the columnist to prepare
with a substitute iri the event he
goes into active naval duty . . .
The campaign to sling foreign
language broadcasts off the air
has the Yiddish program-sponsors
plenty worried, but FCC Chair
man James Fly says it’s all silly,
pointing out that when the names
of Hitler and Mussolini are men
tioned by these foreign broadcast
ers it’s always to I curse them and
to pray for their early defeat.

A PASSOVER MESSAGE
FROM THE SYNAGOGUE COUNCIL OF AMERICA
(Representing the Orthodox, Conservative and Reform
Rabbinical and Congregational Organizations
of America)
The Synagogue Council of America sends greetings to
the Jews of America and to the Jews of the world on the
occasion of the Passover Festival, which celebrates the first
triumph of freedom over slavery in the history of Israel.
This year the Passover brings both a challenge and a
promise. It challenges Jews, side by side with their fellow
citizens in the freedom-loving peoples of the world, to
break the chains of servitude which modern Pharaohs have
welded upon countless millions; and it promises that, as re
demption came to Israel of old, so will salvation come in
our timel to the enslaved) in all the ends of the earth.
Time and again peoples have risen in their might to
fight against tyrants who attempted to rob them of their
liberties. During the conflicts that ensued, the fighters
for freedom suffered many setbacks and disappointments.
The memory of the Passover, strengthens us for the task
ahead, as we gird ourselves for the life and death struggle
that shall assure the safety and the preservation of a free
humanity. It inspires us with the confidence that, despite
initial reverses, the final triumph of the cause of liberty
will inevitably crown our sacrifices.
We of the people of Israel, who have cherished our
liberating experience from Egypt since the days of Moses
and from year to year have retold the story of this redemp
tion to our children, will never surrender the hope of free
dom. Our deep-rooted conviction that the Exodus from
Egypt was the start of Liberty’s march through the length
and breadth of the world will help us to bear courageously
with our fellows in the armed ranks of the United Nations,
whatever burdens and afflictions may come to us.
With faith in God, with confidence in the victory of
God over evil, and with readiness to answer every call for
sacrificial service, we turn our hopes and our prayers to
ward the future.
