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
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
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.
