classical Jewish family, directed
by ancient Jewish traditions, is
breaking down in the United
States because radically new
conditions have altered life in
this country, Dr. Nahum N.
Glatzer, professor of Jewish His-
tory at Brandeis University, told
an audience of 1,000 guests at
the 100th anniversary dinner
of the Jewish Family and Com-
munity Service.
"The Jewish family stood for
standards of life and action,"
Dr. Glatzer said. "It strove
for continuity; it considered
itself an integral part of a
greater whole; it was an active
group, with the home as its cen-
ter; it was a learning group.
"Under ideal circumstances
this type of family could coun-
teract fragmentalization of life;
it could achieve a measure of
That world, except for a few,
yet strong, tradition-directed
homes, is no more, Dr. Glatzer
declared. He said that "in the
foreseeable future we can en-
visage an ever greater Ameri-
canization of the Jewish family;
already 80 percent of American
Jews are native born; there will
therefore be greater homo-
geneity and better technical
understanding between the gen-

"But the better technical un-
derstanding' may help only in
avoiding emotional fractions."
Dr. Glatzer continued. "It will
not help to surmount the deep-
seated isolation that separates
the generations. The smoother-
functioning family will not have
gained inner strength. The in-
dividual will not expect to
derive his affirmation from the
family unit to which he be-
Dr. Glatzer emphasized "that
the old patriarchal family life
has been replaced by the child-
centered home, that a wait-and-
see existence has been substi-
tuted for the life of values;
and that we have rapidly aban-
doned both the element of
wholeness and the factor of hu-
man concern that characterized
the old home." He predicted
that "the family will grow more
and more functional, increas-
ingly institutional."
"To counteract this trans-
formation," he said, "our public
institutions, synagogues, social
service groups, schools, hospi-
tals will have to undergo a radi-
cal change of heart. As much
as possible, they will have to
break away from the bu-
reaucratic, mechanical approach,
from routine and precedent, and
to decide that, like himself,

Samuel A. Goldsmith, execu-
tive vice-president of the Jewish
Federation, predicted that much
more emphasis on preventing
"the growing tensions of family
living" will be one of the de-
velopments in family welfare
service. He said that in the
Chicago area, this development
would come about by the exten-
sion of the Jewish Family Serv-
ice "Family Life Education"
program. He also told the 1,000

Boy Turns Question
Into an Adventure

WZO Expansion
Favored by AJLI

NEW YORK, (JTA)—Support
for the decision of the Zionist
Actions Committee to have non-
Zionist groups represented in
the World Zionist Organization
has been voiced at a meeting
of the national board of direc-
tors of the American Jewish
League for Israel, held at the
Hotel Wellington here.
Judge Louis Levinthal, hon-
orary president of the League
and member of the 19-man con-
stitution committee of the
World Zonist Organiation, re-
ported on the "far-reaching and
fundamental changes" in the
structure of the WZO, which
are now under consideration.
"The overwhelming majority of
American Jews," he said, "are
demonstrating their sincere con-
cern for Israel and in the crea-
tive survival-of the Jewish peo-
ple. They are fully worthy of
membership and representation
in the World Zionist Organiza-
tion without regard to political
party affiliations."
Ezra Shapiro, president of the
League, outlined a program of
activities for the League for the
coming months.
The meeting, which also was
addressed by Dr. Israel Gold-
stein, honorary president of the
League, who just returned from
a world tour, and Louis Lipsky,
decided to convene the annual
conference of the League in
New York during the first week
in December.

Steve Golden is a 17-year-old
Jewish boy from Long Island,
N.Y. Just out of high school,
he had a problem which he
could solve in one other place
than Beersheba.
Glancing one day through the
newspaper, he read an article
about experiments on solar
energy being carried out at the
Negev Arid Zone Research In-
stitute. Something did not_click.
There was a mistake some-
Steve showed the story to his
physics teacher who agreed that
the writer of the article had
probably made a mistake, and
the teacher suggested that
Steve should write to the Insti-
tute and - ask for clarification.
Steve was of a different
mind. Why write if one can
visit the Institute? Lack of
money was no obstacle. He
managed to get himself hired as
a deckhand on a Greek
freighter and came to Israel,
even bringing a little pocket
money with him.
He hitchhiked and worked
from Metulla to Eilat and
visited the whole country—in-
cluding, of course, the Negev
Research Institute, where he
received the reply to his query.

Memory of Good Deeds
Fills Void on New Year

Missing this year among the
regular contributions made dur-
ing the High Holiday season to
the League for Religious Labor
in Israel was the contribution
of Mrs. Sarah Faber.
Regularly, Mrs. Faber, de-
spite blindness for over 20 years
campaigned among her friends
and in the community for funds
for the Israel organization.
Her deeds were recalled anew
last week by community lead-
ers when they paid tribute to
her in a brief unveiling cere-
mony. Mrs. Faber died last year
at the age of 92.
