Reviewer Rejects Proposal for
Study of Religion in Schools

"The Spiritual Education of
Our Children," by Jessie Orton
Jones, published' by Viking
Press (625 Madison, N.Y. 22),
contains an immense amount
of valuable material to serve
as a guide for teachers in
religious schools.
As mother and teacher, the
author is well qualified to offer
advice on the subject. This is
all to the good insofar as per-
sonal actions in the home are
concerned, and in relation to
religious schools. ,
She will be challenged, no
doubt, when she proposes
teaching religion in the schools.
Here the line must be drawn,
for that is the task of houses
of worship, religious schools
and parents.
Mrs. Jones impresses with
her sincerity. There is no doubt
that she is in earnest when she
writes:

"The Bible is the sacred
book of both Christians and
Jews. However, even under
the hyphenated term Judeo-
Christian, it is - not accepted
by. them jointly. Many Chris-
tian's overlook their debt to
Jewish tradition, forgetting
that the rudiments of Jesus'
education and many of his
sayings found their sources in
the Old Testament. Jewish

Foreign Currency
Relaxations

I received a letter from a relative
who lives in England in which he
asked me to write him about the
relief granted to tourists who bring
in foreign currency.

I went to the Finance Ministry and
received there the following infor-
mation:

1. Tourists, permanent residents
and new immigrants are not obliged
to sell to the treasury the foreign
currency in their possession: for a
period of ten years from the date of
their first entry into Israel.
2. Tourists, permanent residents
and immigrant who sell foreign cur-
rency to the treasury during the first
three years from the date of their
first entry into Israel will receive
an additional twenty per cent pre-
mium over the official rate which
is 1.80 to the dollar.-
3. Tourists, permanent residents
and new immigrants may . redeem
bonds of the Development and In-
dependence Loan for a -period of
three years from the date of their
first entry into Israel and will re-
ceive a premium of 20 per cent above
the official rate.
Tourists can redeem Development
and Independence Bonds up to a
'sum of 2,500 dollars per month for
a period of three years from the date
they first come to Israel.
(Translation of Hebrew Corner,
Published by Brith Ivrith Olamith,

Jerusalem.) _ • ■ >


parents, on the other hand,
too often avoid reading the
New Testament to their chil-
dren. Yet familiarity with
this sequel to their own scrip-
tures should be of value to
them in what must rightly be
called a Christian community.
For this reason, and many
others, Bible reading in the
mixed classes of public
schools is highly desirable."

By MILTON FRIEDMAN

(Copyright, 1961, Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, Inc.)

It is not only the christologi-
cal approach that makes Mrs.
Jones' thesis unacceptable, but
also her proposal for the intro-
duction of religious teachings
in the schools. The sacred
separation idea negates her
plan.
Insofar as Jewish reading of
the New Testament is con-
cerned, it is unrelated to the
Christians' use of the Old Testa-
ment. In the instance of the
latter, the two Testaments are
inseparable. Insofar as Jewish
students are concerned, New
Testament reading is reserved
for the older and advanced stu-
dents, since it represents in-
troduction of Jews to another
faith. Therefore study must be
limited to those who will not
be influenced before they are
aware of the differences.

public hearings and issue sub-
poenas, and the enlargethent of

WASHINGTON — A "New
Frontier" spirit has emerged
here at the Israel Embassy.
Ambassador •Avraham . Har-
man has concentrated on "quiet
diploniacy." He is achieving
dramatic results, especially in
obtaining economic and techni-
cal cooperation, bringing in-
creased viability to Israel. Loan
after ldan was granted in recent
months.
British-born, Harman is an
Oxford graduate who became
imbued with Zionism and went
to Palestine before World War
II. His service included an as-
signment as Consul-General of
Israel in New York. Because of
diplomatic skill and insight into
the. American scene, he was
relatively recently selected for
ambassadorial duties in Wash-
ington.
