these even in the humblest Jewish home Denver Jewish News Vol. VIII. “The Jew in America and America in the Jew” A certain clergyman in Los Angeles rising in a pitch of excitement during the resent lilm ivnsorshlp controversy said ttint Americans would not tol erate Oriental standards brought to this country by the Jews I am not quoting the gentleman verbatim, but I am stating accurately the gist of bis hbnted remarks. What he meant by the Jew bring ing Oriental ideas and customs Into America I don't know. We don’t eat with chop sticks or wear queues. -So far as 1 can observe Anglo Saxons and Semites in actual operation I am not able to note many differences lietwcen them. It seems to me that Jewish landlords and Anglo-Saxon landlords both collect their rentals on the tirst of the month in advance. 'Perhaps that clergyman referred to the gift of tin* P.ilde by the Jew to \mcrien. That was one Oriental con tribution which our fathers made. They gave America ttie old and New Testaments. They inspired tin* Pil grim Fathers with the courage to make their historic voyage. They gave them the strength and will to endure the hard life of New Fngland in the winters. They taught them the mean ing of Thanksgiving. They inspired the election sermons of the preachers who pav«*d the way for tlie adoption of the Constitution. The colonists went to Moses for their inspiration, to Pharoah for a symbol of oppres sion. to the Promised Ijind for their pattern of what America was to be come. to Samuel for their warning against monarchs. The political in stitutions of America, are Anglo-Sax on. hut running through them like the sap that sustains and nourishes the trees and plants is the Hebraic emphasis upon liberty, fre«*doin. jus tice, democracy. For America was in the Jew long before the Jew was in America. And because America was in tin* Jew long before the Jew was in Amer ica., America nc<*ds tin* Jew and the Jew needs America. The Jew has an especial duty to be all that decent citizenship implies and demands. I cannot tolerate Jews who break laws and disgrace our people and prostitute our holy mission. They are* traitors to America and traitors to their faith and their people. And I am glad to say Hint most Jews are at least as law-abiding as other groups and prob ably give more to America in propor tion to their numbers and opportuni ties than any other group. Persecution has iiandiwappc.l us hi some respects. We lack at times the reserve and refinement' of the (.entile, ibo 1 know Jews who are the equal of tiieir neighbors in refinement and reserve and in all other respects. Put many of us have still to learn what polish and culture mean and these tilings eoine with years of emancipa tion. Put the Jew may remain true to his Judaism and be a good American. In fact, the bettor Jew one is the liet ter American he is. and the better American the gentile is the more he will understand the Hebraic note that runs throughout American institutions and be friendly inclined toward the Jew. The American who casts aspersions upon the immigrant does not under stand the very spirit of American in stitution-. He is narrow and bigoted and thought lu* be born upon the soil and was educated upon the soil he is not descended in spirit from Washing ton. TJncoln and Roosevelt. Before the Declartion of Indepen dence was signed America was con ceived. Before the Pilgrim fathers set sail upon that eventful voyage America was conceived. Even before Folmnbus left the shores of the Old World and discovered a New World. America was conceived. For America is more than acres and square miles of land. It is more than rocks and rills and woods and hills and mighty rivers that sweep ma jestically to the ocean. America is a spirit, an eternal spirit conceived in the hearts and souls of all the great prophets of all ages. It is tin* promis ed land spoken of by the lips of seers and poets. America was conceived when the Hebrew* left Egypt and pro claimed *‘i new Hod of Freedom. America was born out of the flames of Sinai'- heights when the month of the Lord uttered the Ten (.rent Words that have since become the foundation of human liberty and democracy.
