said: “Well, sir, I can’t be sure,
one way or another, whether
there is really a Jewish race. But
whether or not we are a race, we
Jews feel kin to each other . . .
like people of one family. Some
how we manage to find each
other, to get together this way . . .
like now on the train, though
when we started out on this trip
we were strangers to one another.
Same race or not, we are drawn
together ... In Jewish we call it
mishpocha which means family
. . . one family, that is. And, any
way, we are all in the same reli
gion.”
Mr. Finn still didn't feel sure of

what a Jew is. He asked, did the
religion of the Jew give him a
separate and distinct identity of
his own. He meant did the moral
and spiritual principles of the
Jews make them- at all separate
from others. He asked, didn't
Christianity itself spring out of
Judaism? Wasn't Jesus himself
one of the Jews? Isn't the ethical
teaching of the New Testament of
a continuation of what the Old
taught? Judaism is the mother of
Christianity.
“So can a Jew be thought as one
separate and different from the
run of mankind?” he asked. “To
me a Jew is another guy like me.
That’s the way I define him,
though I well know that even
among Jews there are all sorts of
definitions of the Jewish identity;
and, of course, I know that many
of my fellow-Christians think of
Jews as a different breed of peo
ple. To my own full satisfaction,
I answer the question: “A Jew is
a guy like me.”
When he had finished reporting
the incident in the club car, he
shot the same question at me,
"Segal, what do you say, what is
a Jew?" (We were at the bar of
the Wheel Case in our town.) I
took a sip of my sherry, smacked
my lips over its friendly taste, and
spoke: "Well. Marly, that's a
question that has bothered me,
too. I have said to myself that I
am not different or separate from

the run of the human kind, except
for those individual differences
that are in everybody.
“And I don’t think of myself as
a member of a race or of a nation
other than the U. S. And yet,
Marty, byway of identity, there
are times when I like to feel that
I, as a Jew am standing on a high
hill that reaches up toward the
stars. Around me stand many of
that family—t hat mishpocha of
which that man on the train spoke
to you.
"Mind you, I'm not at all stuck
up as I stand there, feeling high
... I have no sense of being bel
ter than other people up there on
my elevation. I only wish that all
other people would start climbing
up that hill ... to join with us
up there ... to be not of the mish
pocha . . . not Jews, that is . . .
but lo be people who may learn to
know what we know about living
and about God. As Jews we have
lived longer than any others; we
were the first to know God as
most of the world knows Him
today.
“You see, Marty, this high hill
I’m talking about is our immense
history, our tragic, almost time
less, experience, our moral teach
ing which we have carried along
with us wherever we have wan
dered. Well, you might call that
hill Sinai. If you ask me, What is
a Jew? . . . well, a Jew is one Who,
as human being, can keep himself
conscious of the moral imperative
that is his history. That way he
stands high on that hill.
"But, mind you, I'm not saying
that all Jews are up there. Some
are down in the mud below. You
may guess, Marty, that my idea
of being a Jew is one who feels
that his history puts it up to him
to try to be a very decent human
being. We invite all others to
come up lo share this purpose
with us.
