Letter From A Reader

Some columns ago we did a
piece on the snobs of Bronxville,
a New York suburb, who think
that living in a ghetto which
excludes Jews is a mark of sup-
eriority. Among the many letters
we received was the following
from a highly prominent Jewish
figure who now is a resident of
Great Neck, N.Y.
"Many years ago," he writes,
"I went to Bronxville to look for
a house for my family and my-
self. I knew nothing of the social
customs of this quaint place, but
it was lovely and someone had
advertised a house for sale. I
could have bought the house.
The young couple — school
teachers — were quite willing
to sell it to me.

However, they did tell me that
they thought we would not be
too comfortable there when I
mentioned that we were Jewish.
I visited some of the neighbors.
They all said that they would
certainly not oppose our pur-
chasing the house and living
among them. They all said, how-
ever, that we would be the only
Jews and would probably not
be comfortable. Oddly enough, it
was not their statements that
made me decide against living
there. • I simply did not feel that
wanted my family in a commun-
ity without Jews. If I had had
no children, I might have tried
to pioneer or, as they call it,
bust the block, but all I wanted
was pleasant living with some
Jewish content. I did not blame
the Bronxvillains (sic) but I
thought it rather sad that such
nice peole had to force them-
selves into such uncomfortable
attitudes. They literally squirm-
ed with shame. What a price to
pay for their emotional prejud-
ice that was so hateful to their
intellectual maturity. The pres-
en population of Bronxville will
not begin to experience more
than materially comfortable liv-
ing until they decide themselves
to 'bust the block.' Do you
know, I. think Bronxville is
about the only real ghetto in
the Metropolitan area."

Bnai Brith Dedicates
Building in Tel Aviv

TEL AVIV, (JTA) — Former
Prime Minister David Ben-Gu-
rion and Bnai Brith President
Label Katz headed almost 1,000
members of lodges 'in Israel and
guests, as Bnai Brith dedicated
its new building here Dec. 19.
Mayor Mordecai Namir and
Chief Rabbi Isar Untermann
were among those voicing greet-
ings and praise of the Order's
ideals and activities.

Ben-Gurion urged that every
Bnai Brith member should
"adopt" one family from among
the new immigrants to help
raise them to Israel's general
educational level. Katz describ-
ed Bnai Brith efforts to aid
Soviet Jewry who, he said, were
subject to "cultural and reli-
gious genocide." Prime Minister
Levi Eshkol and Katz were
among speakers at a mass meet-
ing held later in the Mann Audi-
torium, discussing the Order's
program and plans for the fu-

"The construction of a new
psychiatric hospital in Haifa—
the first such institution to be
built in the north of Israel-
is a significant milestone in Is-
rael's mental health program,"
Moses A. Leavitt, executive vice-
chairman of the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee, declared last
Leavitt, who was present at
the cornerstone-laying cere-
mony, noted that JDC contrib-
uted $500,000 towards the most
of the new hospital. Aside from
the centuries-old fortress at
Acre, which has served as a
psychiatric facility for some 600
patients, there are no mental
hospitals in the area.
Completion of the 250-bed hos-
pital will enable the authorities
to speed the closing of the sub-
standard Acre hospital.
The hospital, planned jointly
by representatives of the Health
Ministry and Malben, the Joint
Distribution Committee program
on behalf of aged, ill and handi-
capped immigrants to Israel,
will introduce the latest psychi-
atric techniques and equipment.
Eventually it is expected to be-
come the central mental health
center for the entire northern
region, making both therapeutic
and preventive services avail-
able in the area.
JDC receives funds for its
program in Israel and 29 other
countries around the world from
the campaigns of the United
Jewish Appeal.
