’ ASHEVILLE, S. C. Son oi Durham, North Carolina Mayor Writes of Trip To Israel (EDITOR'S NOTE: Robert Mayer Evans, son of Durham's Mayor and Mrs. E. Evans, recently visited Israel with the Jewish Agency Institute. The following excerpt of his impressions of Israel were in a letter that he wrote his family while there.) Dear Family: I feel as if I were writing you from a distance that is worlds apart. In a sense, it's very true —I'm aboard ship now in the midst of the Mediterranean, bound for Marseilles from Naples, via the Is lands of Corsica and Elba. I have just spent three months in Israel on a Jewish Agency sponsored fellowship-type arrangement. There’s so much to tell, I’m at a loss to begin. After a visit like this your impressions are as many as they are varied. And so much of what I’ve thought and felt is bound up in the sights I’ve seen and my personal reaction to those sights, things that by their nature, defy definition on paper, much less their transmission of feeling by a phrase or two. Mom would probably call this emotion, with a tear in her eye I may not choke as loudly or tear as readily, but at least there’s a lot of the same feeling beneath it all.

And each tree can be analogized as a separate item of experience for I'm deluged now by so many individual memories that it's .dif ficult to perceive it all in a pat tern of summation—t hat will come in time when personal senti ment can be'submerged into its proper scope and perspectives of the summer begin to take shape. I remember my first reaction, as simple as it was unique I was in a land of Jews. Now there’s no complexity involved in this, it wasn’t shocking or startling in its revelation for it’s a perfectly plain and obvious fact of existence. But you have to actually be in Israel to experience the uniqueness of it —you’re in a land of nothing but Jews from the horizon to the BEST WISHES PICKWICK E. O.

THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY foreground, -there’re Jews and Jews alone, and it’s quite the ex ception to be anything else; your eyes wander over the billboards and store fronts, over posters and marquees, and see only Hebrew characters. Seems odd when you’ve seen these letters only in Prayer Books and Synagogues, but its impact is to let you know that this is a place where Jews not only live but belong. I can easily understand why so many people feel as if they’ve come home. To me it had never occur red that I was away, and I was far from experiencing an emotion of “returning home” but it at least engendered enough of an affinity in me to savour slightly the taste ful attachment so many had. Seemed so unusual also to walk the streets of Jerusalem and stare incredulously at the sea of faces that float by— Asiatic to Euro pean, Chinese to Negro, from cul ture to crudeness but all of them Jews. Amazing though to attempt a realization of the bond of similarity that tied me .to them —not feelings of aversion or re vulsion, but merely of uniqueness at the strangeness of it all. We had a busy time of it during our two months here. The first month we were in Jerusalem, making trips to places and regions (Continued on Page 7) Best Wishes Always GIFTS - SOUVENIRS FOR TOURISTS Office Supplies Gift Headquarters Langren Book & Gift Shop In Langren Hotel Building 16 BROADWAY BEST WISHES BEST BY TASTE-TEST • Royal Crown Bottling Company 44 SOUTHSIDE AVENUE PHONE 9881 ASHEVILLE, N.
