Head Speaks On Survival Of Jews At the Annual Dinner Meeting of the United Jewish Fund and Coun¬ cil at the Winding Hollow Country Club Sunday night, Morris B. Abram, president of the American Jewish Committee, presented some insight into the much-discussed problem of the "Survival of the Jew." In this age we are not confronted with the problem of survival under attack so much as with the problem of survival under freedom, he said. OF COURSE we are still under attack, there is still the deicide charge hanging over odr heads, in evening Bernard Yenkin received the Therese Stern Kahn Leadersliip Award. Herbert Schiff gave a memorial tribute to the late Aaron Zacks, Following the announcement of the 1966 campaign leadership, a spe¬ cial play, "A Family Affair," writ¬ ten for the occasion by Mrs. Harry Schwartz, was presented by mem¬ bers of the Gallery Players. Rackoff Named T.L Chairman Of Bond Drive In accepting the position of Chair¬ man for the Israel Bond Dinner to be held at Temple Tifereth Israel on Sunday, December 12, Mr. Mel¬ vin Rackoff expressed his strong belief in the continuation of Israel as a strong, independent and demo¬ cratic bastion for the Jewish people of the world. "We Jews have been the wan¬ dering people of the world for too long," Mr. Rackoff stated. IN AFFIRMING his belief in the people of Israel, Mr. Rackoff went on to say: "Fifteen years ago the people of Israel put a very impor¬ tant question to 50 American Jew¬ ish leaders who had been invited to attend an urgent meeting in Jeru¬ salem. The question was: "Would the Jews of the United States be willing to undertake a new cam¬ paign in the form of State of Israel Bonds, if Israel said it needed it?" Coupled with this question was the solemn pledge to repay every dollar that would come in through the floatation of the first Bonds ever to be offered for sale abroad by the Government of Israel. THE ANSWER given by the Americans was a resounding "yes." They did not hesitate in their affir¬ mative judgement, in spite of the fact that Israel's economy was in a very shaky condition at the time and the prospects of repayment were far from bright. Our leaders realized the magni¬ tude and critical nature of Israel's needs. Secondly, they also knew that American Jewry was ready to as¬ sure whatever extra burden was necessary. And thirdly, they knew that we had unlimited faith in the ability and vision of the people of Israel. THE EVENTS of the past decade and a half have produced a period of memorable achievement and pro¬ gress that has more than vindicated the spirit of that Jerusalem confer¬ ence. One can look back with pride and satisfaction at what happened as a result of the faith and devoted sup¬ port of American Jewry. The Israel Bond program has helped the peo¬ ple of Israel carry out in the letter and spirit the plans and pledges that were made at the 1950 Jerusalem Conference. reality giving anti-semitism legal grounds for existence. But the key problem, Abram feels, is the survival of the Jew under freedom. The Jew wishes to be integrated, yet he does not want assimilation to occur. CAN THERE BE integration with identity? The intensely reli¬ gious have no problem. Abram stated the real question as follows: "Can the Jew survive in a secular age witli integration and in free¬ dom?" Abram says yes, for "the Jewish religion has never beqn a religion in the Christian sense, rimarily related to worship, prayer and theology. It was essentially a pecu¬ liar Way of life EVEN TODAY the Jews who gather (for social reasons) for charitable and defense purposes in a typical Jewish organization, are performing a Jewish religious service although they do not quite know that this is rehgion" On the question of civil rights, Abram feels that Jewish involve¬ ment is a good thing, for the Jews have always been freedom fighters from the Maccabeans on. The aim of Judaism is not so much the salvation of the soul in the herealter as the salvation of man in history.
