NEWCOMERS TRAINED AS
FARMERS AND ARTISANS

Representatives of all the Jewish
Emigration Bureaus in Central Eu-
rope met recently at Maehrich Os-
trau on the border between Poland
and Czechoslovakia and adopted a
program to provide for the rush of
Jew, returning to Palestine. The
conference was called by Mr. Land-
mann, General Secretary of the Zion-
ist organization of London. Mr.
Landmann afterward issued a state-
local in which he said that Jews from
the remote corners of the globe are
arriving in Palestine, and in which
lie outlined the problems which must
be met. The statement reads:
The movement of Jews to Pales-
tine is no new phenomenon. For
centuries, in fact ever since the de-
struction of the Temple in 71) A, D.,
there have been individuals who felt
the call. and on several occasions
whole groups have taken the wan-
derer's staff in hand and made the
pilgrimage to Palestine. But it has
been reserved for our own time to
see the beginning of a national return,
of the rebirth of a people after so
many centuries of waiting ;old hop-
ing.

Actual Migration Halted.

The Balfour declaration was inter-
preted by the simple folk in this part
of the world as the establishment of
a Jewish State and an open invitation
to all to come. \tally sold their be-
longings and set out on foot in the
midst of war conditions. Very few
reached their haven; military exigen-
cies kept the gates of Palestine closed,
even to the Jew. One young hero
walked all the way from Poland via
Russia, the Crimea, Turkestan, Persia
and Damascus, and eventually reached
Jerusalem after thirteen months on
the road.
"The actual migration was com-
pelled to wait until the political fu-
ture of the country was finally set-
tled at San Remo last April. The re-
ports read at the conference by the
delegates who were in charge of the
Palestine Bureaus in Poland and
Vienna show that after San Remo the
number grew enormously. The ag-
gravated political conditions in Po-
land also contributed to hasten the
decision of those who had half re-
solved to go. Between, the months
of May and September about 50,000
persons registered their names as
ready to undertake the journey. This
does not include those regarded as
unsuitable, as they are not even regis-
tered. Of these 50,(100 some 7,000 or
8,000 have already reached Palestine.

Class of "Pioneers" Good.
"The class of these pioneers is very
good. They are almost exclusively
young men and women—about 10 per
cent are women—between the ages of
17 and 25. They arc called by the
Hebrew name 'Clialutzim,' meaning
'pioneers.' They have been preparing
for their future life's'work in various
ways. Many have left their schools
and colleges and gone to till the soil
with their own hands in order to be
prepared to do agricultural work in
Palestine. for they are all intellectuals
and idealists, and they have conic to
the conclusion that the only sound
foundation on which to build up a
new Jewish nation is tIe agricultural
life. 'We have been middlemen and
merchants long enough,' they say,'and
it is time that we turned to productive
work.' So you will find )mall colo-
nies of Jewish young Men and women
—in Germany, in Poland, in Austria,
in Czechoslovakia, in Jugoslavia, in
Constantinople--all preparing for the
great task in the Holy Land.
"Apart from these purely agricul-
tural pioneers, there are others who
are being trained as bricklayers, ma-
sons, tinsmiths, plumbers and in all
other branches of the building trades.
The crying need of Palestine is for
houses and shelter for all the new
arrivals.
"In addition to the knowledge of a
handicraft, Hebrew speaking is an in-
dispensable part of the curriculum.
Between 70 and 80 per cent of all who
leave for Palestine can speak Hebrew.
was nivself in Palestine two months
ago, and visited the settlements of
some of the newly arrived Thalia-
zim,' and was greatly impressed with
them—the Men as well as the women.
"Many came from well-to-do fami-
lies and had not been accustomed to
hard manual work. Yet they cheef-
fully cleared the stones from the soil
in thebroiling sun, and planted seed-
lings for the future fruits of Palestine
and, well satisfied with their labors,
sat down with me in the cool of the
evening to a modest—very modest—
meal prepared by the women. who
take turns in cooking and agricultural
work. These were the students who
have thrown aside everything in order
to he among the builders of Zion. And
when, after the meal. there came the
spirited Hebrew marching and folk
songs. it was delightful to see the de-
votion with wich they sang, their
love for their people and their land.

S. M. Levin to Address

of the Committee, 70 Fifth Avenue,

The statement follows:
"One of the grave problems of the
present day concerns the rights of
religious and racial minorities. We
had hoped that the struggle for re-
ligious liberty had been won among
civilized nations; that the world rec-
ognized that the right to worship
God according to the dictates of one's
conscience is among the most precious
rights of man; that the adherents of
any and every faith should have un-
challenged freedom to endeavor to
win converts by persuasion; that every
one . has a right voluntarily to change
his faith; and that any constraint by
either Church or State upon those
who prefer their own faith is re-
pugnant to every sane and enlight-
ened mind. The l'eace Conference
at l'aris expressly sought to guard
the rights of religious minorities and
articles for their protection were in-
corporated in the treaties.
Conditions Disappointing.
"Among the disappointing condi-
tions that have followed the war, how-
ever, is the recrudescence of persecu-
tion in a disturbing number of coun-
tries. The changes of frontiers have
sometimes united separated members
of the saute nationality or creed into
a new State. In other cases these
changes of frontiers have broken old
ties. Minority groups have arisen
which are separated by creed, lan-
guage, or by nationality from the ma-
jority of the people in the State to
which they now belong. The pro-
tective clauses of recent treaties are,
in many instances, being disregarded,
and minority groups are being sub-
jected to tyranny and oppression
ranging all the way from petty an-
noyances to the most atrocious cruel-
ties. In some cases, those whose
rights are being restricted are Protest-
ants, in other cases Roman Catholics,
and in still others Jews; although in
certain lands all three are the objects
of persecution.
"We are not unmindful that political,
economic and racial factors are fre-
quently involved, But we must re-
member that the alleged interests of
the State have ever been the excuse of
officials for persecuting a religious
minority. As for the excuse that per-
secution is for economic rather than
religious or racial reasons, why is it
then that it includes women and chil-
dren as well as multitudes of men who
are not engaged in business? And
why does it not include men of other
faiths who are notorious for the kind
of financial dealings that are objected

ish orphan in the United States was

with special reference to the homes

to share in the "financial adoption" of Jewish war orphans in Europe,
in the manner described in the following article. It is hoped that
every reader (..f The Jewish Chronicle will find a way to become a
shareholder in this greatest of investments, the life of a little child,
and that the response to this initial appeal will result in the adoption
of a large number of war orphans. All communications, inquiries

NORMAN HAPGOOD,

which will be limited in attendance
to members of the organization, is
to be given at a place to be announced
later.
Norman Hapgood has been prom-
inently connected with public issues
since he became editor of Collier's
Weekly in 1903. Leaving that publi-
cation in 1912, he became chairman
of the committee that nominated and
elected Mayor Mitchel. He was edi-
tor for three years of Harper's Week-
ly, until its merger with the Indepen-
dent. He is author of lives of Lin-
coln, Washington, and Webster, and
is about to publish a volume called
"The Advancing,. Hour," He was
President of the League of Free Na-
tions Association early in 1919, when
he was selected by President Wilson
to go as minister to Denmark.
Being an interim appointment, it ex-
pired by law in November. Mr. Hap-
good asked not to be reappointed, as
Senator Lodge was making a bitter
controversy over Mr. Hapgood's be-
ing in the public service and Mr. Hap-
good did not wish to increase the dif-
ficulties between this administration
and the Republican majority in the
Senate. Senator Lodge's most vio-
lent attack was due to the fact that
for over two years Mr. Ilapgood has
urgent this policy, adopted recently at
Paris, of lifting the Russian blockade
and trading with the Co-operatives.

If any one less of a philosopher

ing this speech perhaps he would
have been less complimentary to the
Jewish Communities of Great Britain.
But Claude Montefiore is a man whose
whole life has been devoted to the
unpaid service of his fellow Jews, and
it is well-known that his large private
fortune has been spent in great part
on the same charitable objects to
which he gives his time and enthu-
siasm. There is nothing he does not
give to, ungrudgingly and eagerly,
this saintly scholar whose personal
life and character has done more to
give honour to Jewry in the eyes of
Christians than all the achievements
of all the millionaires in the City of
London. That such a man should
have to go hat in hand to his co-re-
ligionists of behalf of their own char-
ities is discreditable; that he should
appeal in vain is a scandal, a lasting
disgrace. There are no other words
for it.
