i ¦ High St. at 16th—1 ^|\^;^^erving Columbus and Central Ohio Jewish Comm\inity \jP^ Vol. 25, No. COIjUMBUS, OHIO, FRIDAY, SBPXEMBBR 12, 1947 Devoted to American and Jewiih Ideab Rosh Hashonah Begins Before Sundown Sunday Evening The union of Orthodox Jew¬ ish Congregations o£ America and the Rabbinical Council of America urge every Jew to re- dedlcate himself at these High Holy Days fo the high purpose of our people—the sanctlficalion ot mankind. The desperate plight of our brethreh In Europe and the em battled situatlot) of our brothers In Palestine must be recognized as the consequences of grave flaws in modern civilization. Not only the Jews of Europe anti Palestine will be the vlctlm.q of this blight, and not only Israel eveVywiiere, but all In present- day .society which truly repre¬ sents civilization will be tj-amp- led and crushed unless the for¬ ces of higher humanity gird themselves for' battle. This will be a battle for all peoples — the British among them; When we pray for our¬ selves and for our people, let us pray ateo that with God's grace the Britain of Dunkirk win overcome the Britain which shamelessly and ruthlessly drives back to living death the tortured souls who sought freedom on the "Exodus 1947." Upon the High Holy Days we proclaim, "At Rosh Hashonah it is written, and on Yom Kippur it Is inscribed." The purposes with which we gird ourselves at this time and the determina¬ tion with which we maintain these purposes have a vital t)6arlng upon what may Indeed transpire in the coming year. The evil which Nazidom person¬ ified still pervades the earth and will again produce monstrous growths unless it, Is checked. We Jews, inspired liy our Torah and upheld by the merits of our forefathers, must take the lead in this cause. Be we shall have many allies, for God-Peat- Ing men and women everywhere will come forward—our cause and theirs is one. We must fit ourselves for this Red Cross to Conduct Classes In "Mother And Baby Care" Two classes In "Mother .and Baby Care" wljr be given by the Red Cross. One will be a day¬ time class and the other an eve¬ ning class for both expectant fathers and mothers.

Declaring that world events had' demonstrated that the .sole solution of the Jewish DP problems rested iri immediate, large-scale emigra¬ tion of homeless European Ji ws to Palestine, the United States and other lands, ¦ Mr. Lehman stressed that "if we are to re¬ lieve that suffering and those needs, we must take action to¬ day to assure the attainment in full of the $170,000,000 goal of tne United Jewish-,Appeal for this year." Henry Morgenthau', Jr., gen¬ eral chairman of the UJA $170,- 000,000 campaign, reported that great tasl^. Liet us, at these High Holy Days, purify cur hearts. Then we shall find, as did our fathers before us, that confidence will replace fear and strength will replace weakness. Staunch In the service of the Almighty, we shall acquire a measure of power which will not be less potent because It is moral power. In the litiu-gy pf our High Holy Days we pray to the Lord: "That all creatures prostrate themselves before Thee, that they may form a single band to do Thy will with a perfect heart." May God will that this shall t>e so written and inscribed in the coming year. Jerome E.

ISth SOS (Supplies for Overseas Survivors) Emergency D'rive Begins Here Oct. 13th states since the beginning of 1947 to provide for the relief, rehabilitation and resettlement needs of 1,500,000 Jewish sur¬ vivors of war and oppression overseas. He declared that the UJA agencies were "hard press¬ ed to make up the deficiencies in Intergovernmental relief and rehabilitation aid since the liq¬ uidation of UNRRA on July 1," that the plight of the Jewish survivors of Hitlerism was as desperate as ever and that It was, therefore, "the task of the Jews In America, through the $170,000,000 campaign of the United .lewlsh Appeal, to sustain their morale and improve their phy.-iical a n d spiritual exis¬ tence." Ur. Israel Goldstein, national chairman of the United Jewish Appeal who has recently re¬ lurned from a visit to Europe and Palestine, urged the United Nations to bring about the Im¬ mediate entry to Palestine of the 4,.300 Exodus refugees, who were shipped to Germany by Britain. He said that the depor¬ tation of the Exodus refugees to Germany was "the severest blow to the hopes of European Jewry since the end of the Hit¬ ler regime" and that "unless the doors ot Palestine are opened wide in the coming months, many of the remaining Jews in Europe will be doomed to the existence of outcasts and fugi¬ tives." Edward M. Warburg, chair¬ man of the UJA of Greater New York and of the Joint Distribu¬ tion Committee, stressed that the UJA campaign for funds was not only responsible for the saving of hundreds of thous¬ ands of lives but has also weld¬ ed together all elemehts of the American Jewish community Into a powerful force for the advancement of Jewish commun¬ ity life throughout the United States. In the United Jewish Appeal, he said, "we have found solidarity which Is not only one ot our most important Jewish assets, but is also one of our most Important contributions as Americans to our own country."
