On March 4, 1797, President
John Adams (1735-1826) deliv-
ered his inaugural address in
the City of Philadelphia, and in
concluding, stated: "And may
that Being who is supreme over
all, the Patron of Order, the
Fountain of Justice, and the
Protector in all ages of the
world of virtuous liberty, con-
tinue His blessing upon this
nation and this Government and
give it all possible success and
duration consistent with . the
ends of His providence."
The depth of the Hebraic in-
fluence on President Adams
leads to the conclusion that his
knowledge about Jews and Ju-
daism was more than superfi-
cial as one would realize when
reading the President's letter,
which was sent from Quincy,
Mass., Feb. 16, 1809, to F. A.
Vanderkamp, in which he said:
"The two most powerful, ac-
tive and enterprising nations
that ever existed are now con-

Israel Announces
tending with us. The two na- ger from either or both. I ex- Study Scholarships for
tions, to whom mankind are cepted the Hebrews for in spite Arriving Immigrants

under more obligations for the
progress of science and civili-
zation than to any other except
the Hebrews. This consideration
affects me more than the dan-

of Bolingbroke and Voltaire, I
will insist that the Hebrews
have done more to civilize men
than any other nation. If I were
an atheist, and believed in blind
eternal fate, I should still be-
lieve that fate had ordained the
Jews to be the most essential
instrument for civilizing na-
tions. If I were an atheist of
the other sect, who believe or
pretend to believe, that all is
ordained by chance, I should
believe that chance had ordered
the Jews to preserve and propa-
gate to all mankind the doc-
trine of a supreme intelligent,
wise, almighty Sovereign of the
Universe, which I believe to be
the great essential principle of
all morality and consequently
of all civilization."

JERUSALEM—The Education
Ministry said Tuesday that
nearly 70,000 students from
Oriental and new immigration
communities will benefit from
more than $333,333 in secondary
and vocational school scholar-
ships.
The scholarship stipends are
being provided through a joint
government-Jewish Agency fund.

He expresses himself simi-
larly in a letter addressed to
Mordecai M. Noah which is to
be found in the latter's book,
"Travels in England, France,
Spain and the Barbary Lands."

-

Some 80 per cent of the recipi-
ents are from Oriental communi-
ties and the rest from families
who immigrated to Israel during
the past four years.
