Boston's Role in Early U. S. Jewish
History — Some Of Its Eminent Leaders


BOSTON, Mass.—The observ-
ance of the 200th anniversary of
the Touro Synagogue in New-
port, R.I., also draws attention
to this interesting Jewish com-
munity—to the people who share
in the glory of traditions which
have made Boston the Athens
of America.
Judah Touro, the Newport pi-
oneer whose name is appended
to the historic synagogue, also
provided large funds for a hos-
pital in New Orleans, and it was
thanks to him that the Bunker
Hill Monument was completed in
Boston. Touro was in New Or-
leans when he heard of an of-
fer by the Boston industrialist
Amos Lawrence of a $10,000 gift
for a monument in memory of
the heroes of the Battle of
Bunker Hill who approached
their enemies under the famous
slogan "until you can see the
whites of their eyes." He
matched the gift. When the
monument was dedicated, June
17, 1843, tribute was paid to
Touro by President John Tyler,
Oliver Wendell Holmes and
Daniel Webster.
Boston Jewry prides itself on
the contributions many of its
citizens made to the numerous
colleges and universities in the
area. They take great pride in
Brandeis University in nearby
Waltham. Serious efforts are
made to build up the Jewish
school system.
Boston has one of the out-
standing English-Jewish week-
lies—the Boston Jewish Advo-
cate—of which Joseph Weisberg,
who holds two degrees from Har-
vard, presently is the editor.
The paper's
have an inter-
esting history.
Jacob deHaas,
who was secre-
tary to Theo-
dor Herzl and
who later in-
terested Louis
D. Brandeis in
Zionism, w a s
the editor of
the paper.
When Bran-
deis named
deHaas secre-
tary of the
Federation of
American Zion-
ists, he also
suggested that
Weisberg Brin, who then
gained fame as the reporter for
the Boston Traveler who cov-
ered the trial of Leo Frank in
Atlanta, should take over the
Jewish Advocate. He did. With

his brother, the late Joseph Brin,
he built up an impressive news-
paper. Now his nephew, Joseph
Weisberg, is the editor, and
Alexander Brin is publisher.
A history of Boston Jewry
would have to be recorded in a
thick volume. Suffice it to say
that those who study the history
of American Jewry must take
into account the multiple factors
that stem from Boston, making
it one of the major American
Jewish communities.

Seek Restrictions
on Use of Hebrew by
Jews in Morocco
Moroccan publication Akhbar
ed-Dounia, known for its anti-
Jewish attitude, published a vit-
riolic article protesting the fact
that certain Jewish merchants
use the Hebrew language in
their commercial transactions.
The publication asserted that
Jews have no right to use He-
brew other than on a religious
level, that Hebrew is a language
that was "dead for 5,000 years"
and was recently revived. The
paper published the facsimile of
a receipt sent by a Jewish mer-
chant to a Moslem customer
which was written in Hebrew.
It accused the Jewish merchant
of Zionist sympathies and of
wanting to make Hebrew a third
language in Morocco.

a 23-year-old Jewish boy from
Los Angeles, received a certifi-
cate for Golden Globe Awards
nomination from the Hollywood
Foreign Press for his first mo-
tion picture role in "Gypsy," for
which he was lauded as "the
most promising newcomer." It
was in the identical part of
Tusla that he created on Broad-
way in May of 1960 and played
for almost 700 performances;
the character of a youthful song-
and-dance man who inspires
Gypsy Rose Lee to become an
entertainer on her own. Paul—
Tulsa's tap routine, "All I Need
Is The Girl," was a show-stopper
on the legitimate stage and now
inspires audiences to applaud
the screen vigorously.
The young man had a tough
time to get to Broadway and
into the cast of "Gypsy" at the
age of 21, with no previous ex-
perience on the New York stage
and no .recommendations from
a show biz personally. Trying to
crash the theater, Wallace made
his own contacts to wind up
with 14 auditions for the part of
Tulsa, with people connected
with the show, such as writer
Authur L a u r e n t s, producers
David Merrick and Leland Hay-

with the acquisition of inner
strength under the great odds
that were imposed upon the vic-

"For everyone of the liberated

everything seemed to him like a

psychoanalytical specialists.
