Rabbi Starts Movement To Eliminate
Sectarianism In Jewish Religious
Life In U. S.
PATERSON. N. J. (JTA) —A movement to eliminate sectarian
ism in Jewish religious life in America and to establish a universal
synagogue" was launched this week by Rabbi Reuben Kaufman,
spiritual leader of a new Jewish congregation here known as Con
gregation Beth-El.
“The time has come for the
reorientation of Jewish religious
philosophy,” Rabbi Kaufman
said. “The time has come to
scrap the labels ‘Orthodoxy, Con
servatism, Reform, Reconstruct
ionism and what-have-you’ in
Jewish religious life. With the
exception of minor local customs
which exist even today among-
Jews coming from various parts
of the world, there are no issues
of serious character that warrant
the fragmentation of Jewish con
gregational lives into sects which
only create confusion and chaos
and befog the minds of the peo
ple as to what is or is not Jewish
practice or Jewish law.”
Rabbi Kaufman, who served
as rabbi of Temple Emanu-El
here for 20 years until his re
tirement in 1948, explained that
his new congregation plans to
follow the “traditional Jewish re
ligion, which goes back before
the reform movement began in
Germany in 1800.”

U. S. SUSPECTED OF
SUPPORTING EGYPT'S
"SECURITY ZONE"
IN PALESTINE
LAUSANNE, (JTA) Egypt’s
refusal to make peace with Israel
unless a “security zone” is es
tablished in southern Palestine
a sort of buffer Arab state be
tween the two nations has
turned attention to the fact that
the whole Middle East is rearm
ing.
The Arab states’ answer to the
U.N. Conciliation Commission has
once again stressed the fact that
the military situation in Israel
is dominated by uncertainty
about her frontiers. Many ob
servers at the Lausanne meet
ings of the Commission think
there is a deal between Cairo and
Washington. They say it appears
clear that Egypt’s insistence is
based on American assurances of
support for such a “security zone”
in southern Palestine.
It was reported here this week
that Col. Yigal Yadin, the real
driving force of the Israel Army,
who recently returned from his
European tour, has resumed his
old position as chief of military
operations. Out of Col. Yadin’s
tour came the decision to follow
the Swiss military pattern in Is
rael, although with important
modifications. Conscription,
training and the reserve are on
the Swiss pattern. So are the
fortified frontier settlements
whose inhabitants can turn into
integrated military units in a
matter of hours.
On such a basis the Swiss have
called up 20 percent of the pop
ulation in a general mobilization.
In Israel the proportion will be
less but the armed forces, in
case of war, will probably ex
ceed 200.000 with women includ
ed, although present plans are
more modest and specialized
more within present means. The
primary purpose of the new army
pattern seems to be to ensure
that every Israeli knows his job
in case war comes and can handle
one weapon or another with ef
ficiency.

way, for we shall never get peo
ple to stop making war, until we
realize we must at the same time
look for their general welfare.
I was running through the pages
of the English dictionary and I
was surprised to see that the
word kibosh, which means non
sense, is said to be perhaps of
Yiddish derivation. Personally, I
doubt it.
The word cabal is given a
Hebraic origin. From the word
Kabala, which means the secret
lore. Hence anything operating
in secret as a plot or intrigue is
a cabal.
The word Shibboleth means
corn in Hebrew, but in English it,
of course, means watchword or
criterion. Those who know their
Bible will understand why. It
derives from the Biblical incident
when the Gileadites identify the
Ephramites by their failure to
say the “sh” sound in Shibboleth.
The two Hebrew words most
often used in English are of
course Amen and Halleluyah. It
is the Hebrew names which Eng
lish took over in greatest profus
ion. Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin
Franklin, Isaac Newton, all the
old-time great men seemed to
have had Hebrew names.

Alter Soldin (right) and his brother Nathan, who were widowed by
the Nazis during the occupation of Poland, and who were remarried to
a pair of sisters, Chawa Fulnerman (right, in front of her husband)
and Paula Fulnerman, in a DP camp of Germany, are shown upon their
arrival in New York aboard an IRO ship, along with their two year-old
daughters who were bom in a DP camp. HIAS, the Hebrew Immigrant
