Jokes at Expense of Jews.

In protesting against anti-Semites and
anti-Semitism, we should take into account
certain harmless things which some are
wont to interpret as Jew-hatred, but which
Is in reality merely a jest. And when non-
Jews laugh at a Jewish accent, it is not
always done with a spirit of malice.
At this time we are thinking particularly
of the Goldbergs, who have captured the
hearts of millions of radio fans. People
come to us with the complaint that the
broadcasting of such an act is a "chillul ha-
shem ;" that it disgraces the Jew because it
adopts an accent Jews don't use, etc., etc.
We are inclined to take the opposite view.
Had the Goldbergs' been the only act to
adopt a foreign accent in the use of the
English language, there might be some jus-
tification for the critical attitude. But it
isn't. There are Italian and French and
Irish and Scotch acts, and all these are
taken in a spirit of good sportsmanship and
jollity. Why not accept the Jewish at in
the same spirit, especially when it does pos-
sess an element of idealism and if it does
have moral influence for good?
Perhaps the reprinting of the enclosed
from the London Opinion will further illus-
trate the point. We are indebted for it to
the London Jewish World. Instead of in-
spiring another protest, why not get a good
laugh from this quotation from the English
periodical?

Sir—Since you have changed the format of
your paper, you have allowed many stupid ex-
pressions of anti-Semitism to creep in. You
do not seem to care whether you offend your
Jewish readers or not.
