House . . . The book, which is a
i “must" for every intelligent Jew
ish reader, is a popular Jewish
history from the period of the
Second Temple to the establish
ment of the state of Israel, writ
ten in away to make the reader
think . . . The author declares
I that Jews have been shaken in
their historic faith in man's de
cency as a result of the Nazi ex
termination of 6,000.000 of their
brethren without much protest on
the part of the non-Jewish world
j. . . The Jews, he says, are also
disillusioned with the Christian
churches . . . They expected that
Christendom would raise its voice
in their behalf in the name of its
Master . . . This was not forth
coming. with few exceptions . . .
Also the attitude of the liberals,
academicians, journalists, artists
or scientists, left much to be de
sired ... A new militancy, he
points out. has therefore come
into the thinking and conduct of
American Jews as to anti-Semit
ism . . . Emboldened by the con
trast between those who went
passively to their deaths in Nazi
gas chambers and those who died
on the barricades, the American
Jew is now determined to stand
up to the Jew-baiter . . . The
heroism of Palestine Jewry has
even more inspired the Jewish
American not to take the activi
ties of anti-Semitic bullies lying
down ... In general, the author
'finds that American Jews are now
more Jewish minded than ever be
fore . . . Only a handful of them
are still trying to isolate them
selves from Jewish associations ...
Among the drastic changes
wrought in American Jewry by
World War II is the triumph of
the Zionist idea. Rabbi Steinberg

A feeling of depression prevails
in the ranks of American Jewish
leadership in connection with the
DP bill adopted by Congress . . •
The legislation is considered b>
manv a slap in the face to Ameri
can Jewry . . . Some Jewish lead
ers consider the vote on the bill
an indication of the attitude ot
the Senate majority towards
problems concerning Jews both
in this country and abroad ■ • • •
There were, no doubt, strategic
errors committed by those who
conducted the campaign for the
increased admission of DP s to
this country . . Practically all the
campaigners were certain that
among those admitted would be
a decent proportion of displaced
Jews . . . Now it turns out that
the majority of those to be ad
mitted will be anti-Semites, com
posed of Balts and Yolksdeutsche
who cooperated with the Gestapo
in exterminating Jews during the
Nazi occupation of Eastern Eur
ope . . . Thus, anti-Jewish ele

percent of American Jews are
Zionists and pro-Zionists: only ten
percent are anti-Zionists; while
another ten percent remain un

allegation that the state of Israel
raises any question of dual loyal
