Denver Jewish News Vol. VIII. OUR WEEKLY LETTER FROM NEW YORK PETEIt .!. SCHWEITZER AM) PIIIE- I.IP KKANTZ—LOCALIZED ORIEF AMI REJOICIN'; IN JEWISH NEW YORK —WANTED: I. ESS CONDESCENSION AND .MORE I.IASOMNE. By Gershon Agronsky. (Copyrlglitoil, lOg-'. .Tcwtwli Correspondence lln reau). Tin* oil clnilll**4 l hy »li this week included two Jewish figures of New York, lVter J. Schweitzer, h conspicu ous lemlor in tin* Zionist Movement, and Phillip Kraut/., a creator of the Jew ish Socialist Movement in this country. It is doubtful even whether the two men. each nbsnrlied in his own work, each following the Held of his own choosing, knew each other. Yet, despite the political interests which divided them, and the social harriers which separated them, there are certain things common to both of them: lloth Schweitzer and Krantz were educated Russian Jews. Both came here as young men bringing ideas and hjenls not unknown to any of the hundreds of thousands of young Jewish emigrants from Russia. And here the similarity ends. Phillip Krantz died at sixty-live, an age which mitigates the shock the news of death usually produces. He died poor, of course, as poor perhaps as a college professor who falls to marry money. Krantz. when he came over, and during the decades lie spent here did not shelve his hlcultC A socialist, he turned his attention to the Jewish ; masses and ns editor, publicist and educator, it became second nature with him to give himself wholly tftid unthink ingly. to wluit he conceived the Jewish workers' salvation. Like so many o! his colleagues, living and dead, he had no interest In. hut conceivable hostility for. the salvation of the 'Jews as a people. Living in close touch with the masses, lie cultivated their tastes and distastes. He knew, moreover, that what is not reduced, to .simpleness It self is anatlieini/i'd hy the solemn iconoclasts who preside over tin* Jew ish workers’ •vulture." It was his task to popularize all things—all science, including political aiiil eco nomic science* the arts, letters, and - what-not. And so. although his was a thankless existence, if living for one's self is the aim of existence, his cata falque was viewed h.v thousands of grateful followers, and his eofliu borne on the shoulders of comrades who are the pillars of the Jewish labor inovo mi lit in tliis country. rationalism is turbulent. It evokes strife, hostility and lends to either war or pence. In the groupings of Jewish New York we have nothing hut abyss null ind life relict 1 . Different groups do not even take the trouble to hate one another fiercely. They may cordially dislike one another, may he contemptu ous and supercilious of one another, hut there it stops. Contact is studiously avoided, although against their will and predilection, they frequently hare to nil) shoulders. It is extremely ditlicult to say •whether this grouping is due to eco nomic, social or genealogical reasons, or the combination of ail three. Because Jews are connected h.v common char acters and supposed natural ul&nity, non-Jews are persuaded ail Jews are as one. The truth is that class distinctions are nowhere as rigidly described as among Jews and nowhere among Jews as much as among the Jews of New York. Tin* division is all embracing. It Is geographic* as well as political and economic and social.' 'There is a vaster 1 difference between the Beth Hnmedriish Hagodol and Temple Eiuunu-Kl than between, say. tin* Methodist Episcopal Church in the gas-house section and one on Fifth Avenue. A common lan guage and ritual unites the latter two, so that their ministers could exchange pulpis without discomfort. (Imagine, if you can. the shepherd of Emanu-El in the Both Ilamedrash Hagodol!) And is there a difference* more con ceivable than that between the appear ance and deportment; of the worship pers in the two Jewish houses of prayer chosen at random? Or take the brand of “Jewish Cul ture" as fostered hy the inter collegiate Monorah Association and that: which is imbibed by the thousands of visitors to the lecture-halls anil forums and cul tural clubs on the East Side. Sholom ' Alciclicm stands for a imim* of some good-natured lull benighted foreigner: and whore* I'crclz is known, Fricdlau il«*r lias Ih’oii hoard of only as a relief workor who was murdered in tlio l 'krnine. And so il is between this circles where the Into Solomon Soheoh tor is a olassio and thosi* where tho.v swear hy Zliitlowsky. If you did not know both were Jo wish, you would 1k» hard put limling sonic atlinlty between what is fuught at tho Jewish Centres or V. M. 11. A’s. and tho Humorous •voroinon" down-town. And (hiding a point of similarity between tlio chap ters of tho Council of Jewish Women and the Women's “(Tntcrstcutzung" societies is far more dillictilt then find ing something common to the I'uiou League and a lodge of the Knights of I'yrhlr.s, Artithial or not. the harriers are forinidahle —and ominous. In a com munity where, say the "Bergers” speak only to the ' Burgs" (and the latter cast longing glances at exclusive coun try clubs), homogeneity is impossible. But a little "lialsoning'' should not be impossible. Men are wanted to inter pret down-town to the folk up-town, anil vice versa. And the folk up-town should not condescendingly come down only to ••Americanize*." The processes of Americanization are working smooth ly enough. The schools, the institu thins, the streets, the very air that's breathed, are performing their Amer icanizing functions. Nor Is the dilll eulty one of language. “Down-Town" is mastering English rapidly enough. (Besides Yiddish-speaking circles are no less divided among themselves than the English-speaking quarters are. among Jews.) What is wanted is an understanding hy the dissimilar parts of the hopes and the griefs of the other, to the end that there will he universal sorrow when a socialist who had been a good Jew dies, and universal re joicing when a Jewish triumph is achieved, oven though the triumph lie ncliieved hy Zionists.
