THE “NATION" ON CONDITION OF EUROPEAN JEWS. (J C. bTiStlc*.) New York —The flwtion” of thin week comments as flklows on the po sition of Jews in Europe. especially in view’ of the recent ■■ developments in certain of the EanßEnropean coun tries : ‘The situation of tlie Jews, in Eu rope continues deplorable ami should not be permitted to Chile from I lie con sciousness of civilised men.

After virtual, if not actual, impris. onniciic for nix years in Soviet Rus sia, Chaim Nahum Bialik, the great Hebrew national poet, lias arrived in this city. Bialik, once so erect, and stately, is now bent with rare and marked with the sorrows of war and 1 lie persecutions of & troubled regime. The long period of distress however, seems not to have cooled his enthus iasm nor checked his desire for ac tivity nor yet made his poetic fire burn any the lower. Tho his original intention hud been to go from Con stantinople immediately to Jerusalem, he iuformed me that his plans were now changed and that, instead, he would visit the important Jewish cen tres in 'Europe with a view of obtain ing the financial means necessary for the establishment of one Immense He. brew publication house in Jerusalem in which he would endeavor to con centrate the production of Hebrew writings nnd from which publications in the Hebrew tongue would be dis tributed the world over. Asked how he had been 1 grunted the exceptional privilege of leaving 80- viet Russia at this-time, Bialik ex plained in these words: "Of late, the conditions of a group of authors including myself and nine others residents in Odessa, had reach ed un almost impossibly distressing cli max. In our despair we addressed • ourselves to Mtfxtm Corky, the fa mous Russian author who. we knew, had considerable influence with the powers that lie in Moscow. We ex plained thnt since we had been placed in the :non-usefur category by the Soviet authorities there ought to lie no objection to our leaving the coun try. A letter to this effect, and giv ing an the details of oyr case, w*as dispatched thHi a certafn Mr, Sedoy, a well-known journalisr. Two months later, tlrj* same Scdoy returned to Odessa from Moscow bringing us the linppy news that Gorky had interview ed Lenin on our behalf and that Rus sia’s rulers hud consented to our de parture. I was fearful however, thnt the permission would not lie forth coming for a long period because of the maze of official red tape thru Which our papers would have to puss, and none too certain that our lives would lie safe till the end of that iie riod I hastened to Moscow together with my colleague, Kleinianu. We arrived there at u most un fortunate hour. Ail of Russia’s en ergy and the attention of all Its ninny commissures ami commissariats; w«fiv concentrated on heating down tho Kronstadt insurrection then threaten ing Petrogr&d. We nervously hided our time, but when the revolution eol lapsed and quiet was restored. Gorky informed me dint nil the departments • concerned had received instructions to facilitate our passage thru and out of the country. On all sides officials treated us with the greatest sympathy and respect. But it. is characteristic of Jewish af fairs in Russia today that, wlmtever difficulty arose -was created by the 1 Jewish communists known as Jefsek i from tlie two Russian words Jef rniske Hekstie, the Jewish section). These gentlemen exerted themselves to the utmost to hinder onr plans. Lunatcharsky, Commissure of Educa tion nnd many other Russian intellect uals had intended giving us n great farewell dinner in the “Presso Home*' in Moscow but the ‘Jefsek’ interfered and tlie banquet did not take place. The ‘Jefsek* wrote to the Central Com munist Executive accusing Luuntch n.rsky of hobnobing with counter-rib'- olutionnry authors and uidlng in the overthrow of the Soviets. Privately and personally Lunatcharsky and Gorky nnd many others harbor intense bitterness towards these gentlemen of j the Jewish Section. But they are often powerless ng&insc them. \ "Tlie ‘Jefsek* lius succeeded in des- ; troying every vestige of Jewish com- [ muiial life in Soviet Russia and in closing almost every Jewish public in- ' stitution of importance with the ex ception of ‘Habimah’ a Hebrew the-1 ntre in Moscow which enjoys the full est and most extraordinary support of prominent Russian artists of Christian faith. Elsewhere in the numerous towns and cities turnout tlie great, country, synagogues have' been confiscated at tin* advice of the Jewish communists and used as bnr . racks or meeting ploees. Zionist so cieties are positively prohibited and . all Zionist publications impossible. (Continued on Page 2.) MORRIS GEST HELD IN PRISON AT KISHINEFF WHILE SEEKING PARENTS.

Richmond Quits Ministry CLAIMS PEOPLE IN* THIS MODERN WORLD CANNOT BE REACHED BY RELIGION. Discouraged by what he rermed tl»e “futility of the minister in' the life of today,” Harry It. IMchmond. rabbi of (lie wealthiest Jewish congregation in Patterson, retired from the ministry and preached his farewell sermon at the Barnett Memorial temple ac Pat terson. X. J. His reasons for this step are given in the New York World as follows: "I have discovered that I have ls»en wasting my life trying to give the people something that they don't want.” he said to n reporter for the World. Thousands of minlaters, Christ inn and Jewish—have discover, ed the same thiug. People cannot lie reached by religion in this modern world. Their hearts are closed to it. 'The only tiling that greets a min ister in ids work of preaching Clod's message is an apathy which he cannot hope to overcome. I am thru with the ministry because the people have left the church. Disillusionment? Yes, but I will find some other more useful career for myself. * “My resignation is not a reflection upon the spirit of my own congrega tion but upon the spirit of the world and Its attitude toward religious teachings. I am not leaving my peo ple—it is my people who are leaving me." Mr. Richmond has lieen the rabbi of the Bo mart Memorial Temple since Nov. 10, 1019, following Ills re louse from the army after service in Trance as a chaplain. He resigned from his church at Trinidad, Colo., after war was declared and enlisted as a private. In ills farewell sermon "The Part ing Word.” he said: “I feel called upon to prove to your 'satisfaction the righteousness oT my decision and thu legitimacy of the step I am nlioiit to take. It is not the admission of my own shortcomings that gives me pause. It is rather the fear that you may doubt the weight of my conviction that makes my heart heavy and my tongue falter. “You say that my being with you lias beeu productive of some good. And as proof you point to tilings ma terial. tangible, palpable. My con science within me tells me that my labor was in vain: chat I touched no soul. that. I changed no heart, that 1 affected no human life. “Would I could lay hare m.v inner most thoughts before you; w’ould that you could see how troubled mid per plexed I am because of my love for my people. Then you would set* how deep and how great is the wound in in.v heart, and then you would know that, it is not I who leave my people." In his letter to ML I. Fuid, presi dent of the congregation, asking that his resignation Im* accepted. Rabbi Richmond said in part: "I have come to this hitter decision lieenuse of the growing realization up on me of the futility of the ministry ill the life of today. It. Is therefore that I want to Im* spared tin* high priv. liege of iM-ing God’s deacon to reform the world. It can’t.
