On the Alert
Jewish groups throughout the country have been put on
the alert in connection with the expectation that the United
States Supreme Court will, during its current session, hand
down crucial decisions in two cases regarding religious practices
in public schools . . . The Supreme Court decision last June
banning the Regents Prayer in public schools has brought about
a good deal of religious tension which has gradually subsided ...
However, the tension which Jews experienced in the aftermath
of the Prayer Decision will look like a Sunday school picnic
in "comparison to the stormy emotions which will be evoked
by the new church-state decisions expected in the coming months
because the issues involved are of much greater sensitivity and
delicacy . . . In the Regents Prayer case the Supreme Court
settled a specific point, namely that no state may compose a
prayer and recommend that it be recited by students . . It
left untouched the broader question of the constitutionality of
the reading of sectarian scriptures and reciting of sectarian
prayers in public schools . . . In the two cases now before the
Supreme Court, the high tribunal must decide whether the use
of sectarian prayers and scriptures is constitutional or whether
their use violates the First Ameridment of the constitution.
The two cases upon which the Supreme Court will have to
give its - ruling will settle the issue whether recitation of the
Lord's Prayer and Bible readings in public school are consti-
tutional . . . They are known as the Murray and Schempp cases
. . . In the Murray case the Suprenie Court will review a four
to three decision by the Maryland Court of Appeals upholding
the reading of Bible verses and the recitation of the Lord's
Prayer in the Baltimore public schools . . . The regulation of
the Baltimore school board provides that "each school, either
collectively or in classes, shall be opened by reading, without
comment, of a chapter of the Holy Bible and/or the use of the
Lord's Prayer" . . . This rule was amended in 1960 to permit
any child to be excused from this opening exercises, provided
the parents requested this in writing . . The regulation was
challenged by Mrs. Madolyn Murray of Baltimore and her son,
both avowed atheists . . . Their plea was denied by the Mary-
land Court of Appeal in April, 1962, and their case -was carried
to the Supreme Court . ... The second case—the Schempp case—
is an appeal by Pennsylvania state officials against a three-
judge federal district court decision, in 1960, ruling unconsti-
tutional a Pennsylvania law requiring the reading of at least
"10 Bible verses at the opening of each day in public schools .. .
The lower court's ruling was in response to an appeal by Mr.
and Mrs. Edward Schempp, Unitarians, who had brought action
against the school board of Abingdon township, a Philadelphia
suburb, asking the court to ban Bible-reading in the school
system . . . When the district court ruled in favor of the
Schempps, the Pennsylvania legislature reviewed the law and
made participation in the public school religious exercise
entirely voluntary for both teachers and students .. • The district
court again found the practice to be unconstitutional, and state
officials appealed this decision to the Supreme Court.
Jewish Pen Portraits
American Jews know a good deal about the outstanding
characteristics of some of their top leaders . . However, they
know practically nothing about Jewish personalities in other
countries . .. This gap has now been filled to a considerable
extent by S. J. Goldsmith, London correspondent of the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, especially with regard to outstanding Jewish
personalities in England . . . A book entitled "Twenty 20th Cen-
tury Jews" by Mr. Goldsmith has been published in New York
by Shengold Publishers, Inc., presenting American Jewish read-
ers with excellent pen portraits of Jews whose names make news
. Goldsmith included in his book also penetrating essays on
Israel's Premier David Ben-Gurion, Dr. Nahum Goldmann and
Dr. Abba Hillel Silver . . . However, the major portion of his
volume is devoted to Jewish personalities in Britain whom lie
knows well . These include Leslie Hore-Belisha, Lord Herbert
Samuel, Neville Laski, and Dr. Noah Baru.•

Fought Blue Laws
Jacob Ezekiel, a 19th century
prominent American Jewish
businessman, was one of the pio-
neers in this country in the
struggle against Sunday Blue
laws. In 1845 he secured the
repeal by the City Council of
Richmond, Va., of an obnoxious
ordinance imposing a heavy fine
for infraction of the Sunday
laws.. Four years later he ob-
tained an amendment to the re-
vised Virginia state code freeing
Jewish Sabbath observers from
penalties for Sunday violations.
