Speaking of dancing reminds us of one of the rehearsals we at tended of “The Living Link” which was presented by the Jack sonville Zionist Youth Group Wednesday night . . . In the dramatization of a role which an American chalutz plays as a living link between the Jew ry of Israel and the United States there is danced a hora . . . Any resemblance between the Israeli hora and the dance which has evolved through the efforts of American Jewish boys and girls is absolutely accidental . . . The Americans have taken the dance and adapted their own interpreta tions —The most intesesting of these is the calling . . . In this part the caller shouts “Eemoh”, and the dancer answers, •‘Amoh” . . . Then, caller: "Eemoh” Dancers: “Amoh” Caller: “Eemoh Amoh” Dancers: “Amoh Eemoh” and so on until Caller Shouts, “Pepsi Cola hits the spot,” and the dancers answer, “Ten ounce bottle that’s a lot.” . . .

PH. 7-8568 THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY BROTHERHOOD WEEK BY NATHAN ZIPRIN The Bible relates that when God saw it was not good for man to be alone, He gave him a help mate, thus divesting Adam of an aloneness that must have gnawed at his heart and soul. Here we have the first idea of the unity of man—and symbolically of man kind--through love. Then came Cain and Abel, the first brothers. But the brotherhood that was to be amorfg them melted away, and when it was gone Cain slew his own brother and in consequence became a fugitive and wanderer from Land and Lord. Thousands of years have passed since the dissolution of the first bond of brotherhood. But its les son is as fresh today as the grass which softened the path of the first slayer as he left God’s pres ence for a land beset with shad ows. Man’s path since then has been a long and arduous one. War and pestilence, dissension and hate, darkness and fear these have been his lot because, like Cain, he has been unable to understand that growth and survival are meaningless even in the most formidable tower if all that sus tains it is aloneness. Brotherhood is the antithesis of aloneness. Its essence is shar ing. It is a denial of the closed door and steel wall. It is the warm hand of joy and the con soling palm. It is the affirma tion of the oneness of man with himself and his environment. It epitomizes the root and core of human relations. Cynics may say, since time and tide have failed to bring man 4o the threshold of brotherhood, there is no hope of man ever at taining that goal. Perhaps they are right. But if we stop striv ing, our problems will be solved by the weapons of destruction which our civilization is produc ing with dazzling rapidity. 11l and Infirm DP's To Leave British Zone of Germany For Israel LONDON, (JTA) The first transport of “hard core cases” Jewish DP’s who are ill or infirm —will leave the British zone of Germany for Israel by air during the first week of March, it was announced here today by the Jewish Committee for Relief Abroad. German boards in the British zone which were established to rule on claims for compensation to persons imprisoned by the Nazi on racial, religious or poli tical grounds are now processing applications, the Committee re ported. Jewish relief groups in the zone have been active in pro viding proof of detention,-partic ularly of victims who subsequent ly fled Germany. The same or ganizations have been active in obtaining pensions for perseeu tees and resettlement grants for Jews who have returned to Ger many from nations of refuge, the report said.
