Brazilian Jewish Leader Praises
His Country's Rejection of Bias

A distinguished Brazilian
Jewish leader, who was the
guest here for three weeks of
Mr. and Mrs. Jack Malamud,
22511 Bellwood Dr., Southfield,
described the status of the
Jews in Brazil as being on a
level matching the progress at-
tained by American Jewry and
spoke with admiration of the
firm stand his country's leaders
take against bigotry.
Yankel Gleiser and Mrs.
Fanya Gleiser, who reside at
2888 Avenida Atlantica, Rio de
Janeiro, both of whom came
here after their month's visit
in Russia with his sister,
brother and their families, re-
newed friendships here with
many Detroiters whom they
hosted in Brazil.
Gleiser said that the 150,000
or slightly more Jews in Brazil
enjoy complete freedom, that
there is a continuing • interest
there- in Israel, in Jewish cul-
tural activities and in Yiddish,

Young Adults Parley
Analyzes Survival of
Jewish Life in U.S.

Delegates to a national Jewish
young adult convention were told
that their positive commitment
to Jewish ideals and values was
the key to the survival of Jewish
life in America. The warning
was sounded by Dr. Ira Eisen-
stein, president of the Jewish
Reconstructionist Foundation of
America, who called for a
"young adult-inspired extraordi-
nary effort."
Young adults," the rabbinic
leader said, "have to make the
great decision to put an end to
drifting and begin directing
American Judaism in the way
that it may go." Eisenstein said
Jewish young adults should have
the "enthusiastic support and
cooperation of rabbis and teach-
ers of all the wings of Judaism"
in their efforts.

and that in general there is
less assimilation and inter-
marriage than in most other
Latin American countries.
Recalling that when the
swastika smearing craze
broke out in Argentina Bra-
zillian officials, including
President Kubitchek,
promptly went to Jewish
meetings to express their
abhorrence at what had
taken place in Argentina and
Uruguay, Gleiser said that
the general feeling about
Nazism in his country is one
of revulsion.
While the Zionist movement,
like the movements in the
United States, have somewhat
weakened, Aliyah and a desire
to go to Israel is strong among
Jews in Brazil, Gleiser said.
He pointed out that all Bra-
zilian Jewish youth study in
Jewish schools through their
high school terms and there-
fore learn Yiddish and Hebrew
in addition to Portuguese. He
said that the two Yiddish and
two Portuguese - Jewish week-
lies are well read and that the
daily Jewish • radio program,
over which Jewish news is
broadcast regularly, is very
Gleiser, who formerly was
engaged in banking, now is
associated with Emerson of
Brazil in television activities.
He is the prsident of the Rio
de Janeiro Jewish Home for
the Aged and is active in all
major Jewish movements.
In interesting story of a
deep friendship was evi-
denced by the visit of the
Gleisers with the Jack Mala-
muds. Gleiser and Malamud
were classmates in their na-
native city of Novaya
Ushitza, in the province of
Podol in Russia. Malamud
and his brother, Lckuis La-
Med, came to this country in
1921, but Gleiser was pre-
vented by the existing quota
from settling here and went
to Brazil in 1924.
They did not hear from each
other for 27 years. But in 1946,
because of the serious illness
of one of the Gleisers' three
sons—all dentists—they came
to New York to seek medical
aid for the sick man. Friends
contacted the Malamuds and
the contact between friends
was restored when the De-
troiters went to New York to
comfort the Brazilians. The
Gleisers' son passed away
shortly thereafter.
The Malamuds began fre-
quent visits to Brazil, the
LaMeds also visited frequently
with the Gleisers and a friend-
ship also was established by
them with Emma Schaver, who
went to Brazil to give a series
of concerts,. and her late hus-
band, Morris Schaver. During
their visit here, the Gleisers
also were entertained by Mrs.
The Malamuds, LaMeds and
Gleisers visited in Israel to-
gether, and the Malamuds also
were among those who attend-
ed the wedding of the Gleiser's
second son, in Rio de Janeiro,
in 1949.
Emma Schaver's first concert
in Brazil in 1947 commenced
the Gleiser-Schaver friendship.

Prohibition Against
Smoking in Cemetery

There is a general prohibition
against eating or smoking in the
presence of the dead (S'dei
Chemed, Aveluth 116). This
comes under the general cate-
gory of prohibitions which re-
strain the living from performing
overt acts in front of the dead
which the dead can no longer
do. This is like teasing the poor
by enjoying luxuries in front of
them. Under this assumption
one may say that smoking a
cigarette in the cemetery is for-
bidden, since it is being done in
the presence of the dead.
