JOEL HILLMAN, President.
1 NEW YORK.—In discussing the
question, nu e instruction in The
Public Schools," Miss Martha Neu-
mark, writing in "The Jewish Worn-
an," the quarterly of the National'.
Council of Jewish Women, takes the
point of view that there is one way of '
saving the Jewish child to the Jewish
religion, and that it is not by vocifer-
ous objections to the introduction of I
Bible reading into the public schools.
"A system of religious education
ought to be evolved," asserts Miss
Neumark "which would require the
child's attendance practically every
day in the week. It is only by a con-
stant reminder that the Jewish child
can be expected to become deeprooted
r in elih gii s on uffection for his people and his
"Jews. need not have been a tenth
as interested in Bible instruction in
the public schools," continued Miss
Neumark, "if their own system of re-
ligious instruction had been managed
well. Jews who are interested in hav-
ing their children grow up with a
knowledge of their Jewish heritage,
with an acquaintance with their re-
ligious teaching, with a respect for
their very religion, have not provided
them with the means thereto. Every-
one ought to he willing to admit by
this time that the present system of
Jewish religious education is entire-
ly inadequate. Attendance at a re-
ligious school once a week can never
impress the child with a knowledge of,
not to say respect for, his faith. At
the present time, the child does not
even have an opportunity to imbibe
the Jewish atmosphere' in the Sunday
School. Needless to say, three hours
a week are hardly enough for the
transmission of religious instruction.
"It is true," contends Miss Neu-
mark, "that the odds are against
Jewish preservation of individuality
in America. Conformity and uniform-
ity characterize secular life; they have
a similar influence over religious life.
The modern Jew is apparently forced
into relinquishing his faith to satisfy
the maw of standardization. It is in-
evitable that the Jew should succumb
to the assimilation tendency, when he
is inadequately prepared to defend
"We thus find a discussion of Bible
instruction in the public schools lead-
ing us into unexpected ramifications,
into unforseen difficulties. The adult
Jew who rushes to the defense of his
religion, who dons the name of his
people, only when he is driven to the
wall, is the product of the Jewish
child nurtured on an occasional ex-
tract from the Bible and the Prophets,
and an enforced attendance upon the
sermons of the local rabbi. Constant
drilling makes for perfect memorize- I
lion. Only a youth of Jewishness can
make for a life of Jewishness.
"The need is imperative for the re-'
organization of the Jewish system of
religious education. Not only must
more time be devoted to such teaching,
but more science. The notion must
disappear that 'anybody can teach in
the Sunday School.' It is coming to
Peace was disturbed and riots threatened to follow at the Women's In-
ternational League for Peace and Freedom which held its sessions in Inns-
burck. Tumults began when Mrs. Lewis, an American woman, delivered
an address on the necessity of peace between races. A group of anti-Semitic
students, particularly members of the Swastika Organization, broke into
the hall with cries of "Pfuf, Jews." The meeting had to be suspended
before order was restored by the police.
Louis Oungre, general director of the Ica, recently went to Eastleigh

Professor Adolph Lazarus, the favorite pupil of Dr. Ehrlich, discoverer

Lazarus collaborated with Professor Ehrlich on several important works on

published in 1900. When Professor Ehrlich prepared the second edition of
this book in 1910 the revision of the work was entirely entrusted to Pro-

Efforts to shorten the length of travel from Poland to Palestine are
being made by the Palestine office of the Zionist Organization in Poland.
A plan was forwarded by which the Polish Jewish emigration to Palestine
is to be directed through Greece instead of through Roumanian and Italian
ports. The route would then be through Vienna, Belgrade, Athens and
Salonica, and would last only four days—two by railway and two by ocean.
A Salonica Jewish company has offered its steamer for this purpose. Mr.
Barlas, in behalf of the Zionist Executive in Palestine, has proceeded to
Athens to investigate the matter.

the American Jewish Emergency Committee, and Mr. Jefroykin, represent-
ing the United Jewish Immigration Committee. It was stated that the
United Evacuation Committee will have sufficient money to settle all refu-
gees who are stranded in European ports.
