About Jewish Names
BY DAVID SCHWARTZ
(Copyright, 1961, Jewish Telegraphic
It's Abe Lincoln's birthday.
Abe is a fine name. It has
the feeling that we like to as-
sociate with Lincoln. The name
Abe must have helped Lincoln
get elected. It has that same
something as the rail splitting
of which so much was made in
Lincoln's campaign for the
Presidency. It has earthiness,
the common touch.
I remember a bit of Yiddish
doggerel that I used to hear in
my boyhood about names. The
first verse ran:
"If his name is Mendel,
You can eat from his
Names have a certain logic.
Jews frequently go fancy and
translate Abraham or Abe into
Arnold. But an Arnold is differ-
ent from an Abe. Arnold has a
tense look. His mother is always
over him. "Arnold, have you
studied your piano lesson? Ar-
nold, put on your rubbers." .
But Abe can take care of
himself. His playmates are al-
ways at home with him. The
Abes get along very. well.
The old simple Jewish names
seem to be coming back. Mr.
Eisenhower prided himself on
Ike. Since Moshe Dayan became
famous, Moshe has become
popular—even Moish. A good
lady social worker I know—a
Jewess—recently told me of a
little East Side boy she has
been attending. He said to her,
"Call me Moish." We can under-
stand that. A boy named Moish
is no sissy. He is a real boy.
I know J u d a h s who have
changed their name to Judd.
They think in a non - Jewish
world they can get farther with
that. But Judah P. Benjamin
did pretty well, becoming Sen-
ator from LoUisiana and the
first man in the Southern Con-
federacy next to Jefferson .
We are imitative in our
names. Our ancestors did not
Abe a Fine One
ape high society. They went
out to nature. Jonah is a dove;
Debora, a bee; Zeeb, a wolf;
Aryeh, a lion; Zipporah, a bird.
They were bold. Sometimes
they used whole sentences for
a name. Thus, a prophet called
his son "A Remnant Shall Re-
turn." His idea in this name of
course was to teach Israel a
lesson. Probably at school it
was a little hard for the teacher
to call him by his name. Imag-
ine his playmates saying to
him, "Come on, play with me, ,,
A Remnant Shall Return." It
sounds odd to us, but such a
name at leaSt gives you some-
thing to think about. Suppose
we named our children today
such names as "It's Late?. Than
You Think." It might prove
very helpful socially.
On the whole, the old Hebrew
names were very simple. The
earliest and most comprehen-
sive catalog of Hebrew names is
to be found in Chapter 46 of
"And these are the names of
the children of Israel who came
into Egypt. Jacob and his sons,
Reuben . . . And the sons of
Reuben: Hannoch and Pallu and
Hezron and Carmi . . . And the
sons of Simeon: ‘Jemuel and
Jamin and Ohad and Jachin
and Zohar and Shaul . . . And
the sons of Levi: G e r s h o n,
Kohath and Maran . . . And the
sons of Benjamin; Bela and
Bechel and Ahiel, Gera and
Naaman, Ehi and Rosh, Muppim
and Huppim . . ." and. so on.
Imagine such names as Mup-
pim and Huppim. What movie
star would not envy them!

LONDON — James Zarb, the
British businessman whb arrived
here Tuesday after his release
from a Cairo prison Monday by
presidential d e c r e e, said he
thought his release was due "to
some extent" to remarks made
by Dr. Arnold Toynbee dm-ing a
debate last week in Montreal
with Israel Ambassador -Yaacov
Herzog in which the British his-
torian compared Israel's treat-
ment of the Arabs in 1957 with
the Nazi treatment of the Jews.
Zarb was sentenced in 1957 to
a ten-year prison term by a Cairo
court on a charge of espionage.

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.,
(JTA)—A nuclear reactor pres-
ently under construction at In-
shas, 35 kilometers. from Cairo,
will become critical early this
year, according to a report by the
International Atomic Energy
Agency. The reactor is described
as identical with the WWR stroke
C reactor of the Academy of
Science in Moscow.
The thh-d volume of the World
Directory of Nuclear Reactors,
published by the IAEA, describes
the reactor as a tank type, ,using
enriched uranium, light water
moderated and cooled. The direc-
tory gives its purpose as "re-
search." The reactor is the prop-
erty of the UAR Atomic Energy
Commission. Fabrication of its
components, according to the di-
rectory, is by the USSR.

WASHINGTON, (JTA) — Op-
portunities in all fields of en-
deavor will be greater within the
next decade for American youth
who are members of minority
groups, teen-age leaders of the
Bnai Brith Youth Organization
were told here.
The hospitable climate towards
minorities will not be merely an
advantage to young people, but
will be America's gain in this
critical age," Herman Edelberg,
Washington director of the Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai Brith
said in an address to the open-
ing session of the three-day exec-
utive committee meeting of Bnai
Brith's youth-serving agency.
Edelberg pointed out that the
1960 Presidential election . "is an-
other evidence that prejudice is a
declining force in America." But,
he said, this decline "is not, : a
signal for relakation of efforts
since there is still far too much
prejudice for healthy society to
