In "My Faith and People,"
Rabbi Theodore N. Lewis has
included 42 essays on a variety
of subjects.
This attractive volume, pu
lished by Behrman House (1
B'way, N. Y.),
is the result
of two decades
of the author's
thinking a n d
of his defense
of "the eter-
nal truths of
the Jewish 're-
ligion and the
majestic n o-
bility, purified
b y suffering,
otmy people."
The author
asserts at the
outset that the
Nazi holocaust
Dr. Lewis
h a s haunted
him constantly and that the
tragedy often has shaken his
faith. His present book pro-
vided him with the opportunity
of dealing with important as-
pects of contemporary Jewish
His 42 essays are grouped
under seven divisions — Syna-
gogue and Church, the Nazi
Holocaust, Religion and the
State of Israel, Jews Under the
Kremlin, Famous Jews, Hebrew
Volumes, Judaism.
It is evident from the main
titles that Rabbi Lewis has cov-
ered a vast variety of subjects,
that he has dealt with noted
personalities (Kaufman Kohler,
Henrietta Szold, Simon Dub-
now, Josephus, Freud, Max
Nord a u, Ahad Ha-Am and
others) and that he concerned
himself with the major issues
in Jewish life.
His book contains reviews of
important Hebrew works and
deals with major religious
themes, including the Sabbath,
and daily problems confronting
In his discussion of the Rus-
sian issues, he .expresses confi-
dence that "Jewry will surely
survive the Soviet tyranny,"
and he refers to the Biro-Bidjan
scheme as a "fraud."
With reference to the holo-
caust, he expresses his horror
over . what had happened and
describes his experiences in the
concentration camps and the
shock of revisiting Auschwitz.
Rabbi Lewis believes in the
inevitability of a religious re-
vival in Israel to be led not by
rabbis but by laymen.
Dr. Lewis at present is rabbi
of the Progressive Synagogue
of Brooklyn.
