NEW YORK (JTA) — A na-
tional campaign to line up sup-
port for a bill pending in the
United States Senate for the
liberalization of the immigra-
tion laws was launched by the
Workmen's Circle, according to
an announcement by Nathan
Chanin, general secretary of
the fraternal order.
The bill, introduced by Sena-
tor Philip A. Hart, Michigan
Democrat, and co-sponsored by
24 senators, would allow for an
overall increase in immigration
into the United States from
the 156,000 now permitted to
approximately 250,000.

The longest reign of any
European monarch was that of
France's Louis XIV. Ruled 72
years.

By MORDECAI M. KAPLAN

We Jews have much in our
tradition that should qualify us
to be expert in patience. We
have paid dearly for our many
false Messiahs, who came in
answer to our impatience.
As if to insure us to the long
and severe testing of our pa-
tience that awaited us, we
were initiated in it at the very
beginning of our career.
When our ancestors left
Egypt, we are told, God led
them by a circuitous route,

through the wilderness lest,
when they encountered an
enemy, they return to Egypt
and its bondage. Thus they had
their first lesson in endurance,
without which they did not
deserve to be free.
The real testing came much
later. It was then that our Sages
repeatedly warned our people
against yielding to the lure of
wishful thinkirig, only to be
bitterly disappointed when their
premature hopes would come
to naught.

Explain Meaning of `Derashah'

SPECIAL SALE

Jews--Lesson in Patience

The term "Derashah," as it is
used today, refers to a "ser-
mon." Sometimes any speech is
referred to as a "Derashah."
In ancient times, when peo-
ple were perplexed, they "in-
quired" of the Almighty to
learn the meaning and the out-
come of their problem. The ex-
pression "Derashah," which
means "to seek out," is used for
this procedure. So was it that
Rebecca inquired of the Al-
mighty as to why there was
such a struggle between the
two children within her (Gen-
esis 25:22). At times this inquiry
was made through a prophet (I
Kings 14:1-4). The book in
which was recorded the in-
quiries of the Kings to the Al-
mighty through His prophets,
and the answers to these in-
quiries, were referred to by the
name "Midrash" (II Chronicles
13:22). These books are men-
tioned in the prophetic litera-
ture of the Bible; but they have
evidently been lost.
When the activity of-prophecy
came to an end, another form
of seeking out the word of the

Almighty came into being. This
was the method by which the
word of God was elicited - from
the interpretation of a Biblical
text. Instead of the word of the
Almighty being "drawn" from
the_ Almighty Himself through
His prophet, it was now "drawn
forth" from His written docu-
mentary—the Holy Bible. The
same term "Derashah" was
used, since one has to "draw
out" the idea by using one of
the various methods of inter-
preting the written word of the
scripture. Thus the "Derashah,"
which originally referred to an
inquiry of the ways of the Al-
mighty through his written word
and its official interpretation.
The result was a "Derashah"
and the people who did this
were called "Darshanim," while
the place where this study was
made was called the "Bet
Hamidrash."
