Victory For American Jewry
The Jews of the United States met in New York in the
five-day American Jewish Conference and proved their ma
turity. The 502 delegates represented every shade of or
ganized and responsible Jewish life in America. They re
flected the differences in religious, economic, social and
political sentimelnts that characterize any large body of
people. But under the impact of a common danger and
destiny they were able to weld a unity out of the disson
ances in their thinking.
Because of its immediate, practical relationship to in
ternational affairs and the present and future of the Jewish
people, the most important resolution facing the Conference
was that on Palestine. That it was adopted by the 502
delegates with only four negative votes recorded is a tribute
to the conciliatory spirit reflected among the varying ele
ments. The resolution was important in relation to the
Jews of Palestine, those of Europe and to the governments
of Great Britain and the United States. There was nc
equivocation in stating that what the representatives oi
American Jewry wish for Palestine is a Jewish Common
wealth and that the creation of a Jewish majority to estab
lish such a Commonwealth must be vested in the Jewish
Agency with full power over immigration and other mat
ters affecting the growth of the Jewish population. The
importance of the resolution arose, first, out of the immin
ent danger facing Palestine because the White Paper is
scheduled to go into its climactic effect in May, 1944 and.
secondly, out of the “squeeze play” being worked on the
Jewish National Home through a malign cabal that has
links in Jerusalem, Cario, London, Washington and New
York. The resolution was needed to bolster the courage
and the faith of the Yishuv. It was essential to make clear
to the American as well as to the British government that
the isolated individuals who try to destroy Zionism through
their personal influence do not represent the overwhelming
majority of the Jews of the United States who feel deeply
about Palestine, present and future.
The Conference was valuable from many points of
view. It enabled Jewish community leaders to meet, to
know each other and their views better. It served to re
assure the Jews who still live in Europe that their fate has
the deepest concern of their fellows-Jews in America. It
demonstrated that Jews do have a capacity for vision and
statesmanship confronted with grave decisions.
When the next session of the American Jewish Con
ference is re-convened, there will be the universal hope that
it is to elect delegates to the peace conference—and may it
be soon!

IT DOESN’T HAPPEN HERE

More than fifty graves were re
l cently desecrated in the Jewish (
cemetery of Glenwild, New York.
Only the Jewish Daily Forward
reported the fact . . . Tombstones
were removed from their loca
tions and scattered all over the
ground and many graves were
dug up . . . Glenwild is located in
the Catskill mountains in the
vicinity of several Jewish com
munities . . . Thus far the culprits
have not been apprehended . . .
j Three thousand dollars is the re
ward offered for information
leading to the arrest cul
prits . . . It’s time for another
i burst of publicity from one of the
1 Christian-Jewish good will bodies
to show how much good their
work does.
ON BEING AN AMERICAN
JEW
In New York City the name of
! Stanley M. Isaacs is one of the
most potent wherever political
’ honesty, administrative integrity
J and human sympathy has friends.
A man of resource who has long
I served in civic affairs, he was
regular bond purohasos—many will have jp
to invest thousands 1

in America can raise to put this 3rd War

prevailed upon some years ago to
strengthen the ticket of Mayor La
Guardia by running as a Republi
can for President of the Borough
of Manhattan. The person whom
he replaced was an amiable, polit
ical hack. Isaacs made a notable
reputation. But he made one mis
take, it was said. He appointed
a Communist as one of his secre
taries solely because he regarded
him as efficient and competent.
People forgot that all his life
Isaacs had been a staunch Re
publican. Hetzed up by the
Church that tries to control the
destinies of New York, the news
papers went to town on Isaacs.
He was not renominated. Later
he ran for New York City Coun
cil. He was elected. Recently he
was up for renomination and it
seemed that the Republicans
would deny him that—because his
liberalism expressed itself in the
most disconcerting places. He
seemed concerned only with
speaking the truth bluntly re
gardless of the party or individ
uals it offended. But he will run
again, because even party bosses
sense the admiration and respect
New Yorker* have for the hones
ty, moral as well as political, of
one of the most intelligent Jews
in politics this nation possesses.
