Jews Disproving Samuel's Theory
that Concept of Sports Is Gentile

By HAROLD U. RIBALOW

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

participated in the Games. One
of them was Dick Savitt, the
great tennis player and former
Wimbleton champion.
Another intriguing aspect of
the games was the performance
of Michael Wittenberg, who
won the light - heavyweight
championship in the Greco-
Roman style. Young Wittenberg
is the son of Henry Wittenberg,
the former Olympic wrestling
champion who also starred in
two Maccabiahs.
There were 40,000 persons in
attendance at the final cere-
mony at the Ramat Gan Sta-
dium, which is far less impres-
sive than many American sport-
ing arenas, but carries within
it the spirit df the people of
Israel. At this ceremony, Mike
Herman, who used to perform
for NYU, was honored as the
best athlete at the Games.

Nearly a decade ago, the
noted Jewish writer and think-
er, Maurice Samuel, wrote a
book, "The Gentleman and the
Jew," in which he said that
the concept of sports is gentile
and not Jewish; that the idea
of "playing the game" is, really,
alien to Jewish philosophy.
But the Maccabiah Games in
Israel are considered the Jew-
ish Olympics. And the sixth
Maccabiah Game s, held at
Ramat Gan Stadium recently,
reflected the ability of Jewish
athletes all over the world.
There were athletes from 26
countries (about 1,300 of them)
and they were impressed by
Israel and the quality of the
Israeli stars. The United States
won 58 gold medals, but Israel
took 29 gold medals, which is
Egypt's pleasure - loving an-
a pretty good showing.
Jewish players from America cients decorated their tombs with
who, in the past had tenuous pictures of parties—they hoped
Jewish connections, proudly- the fun would go on forever.
