Dr. Simon Greenberg, vice chan-

Seminary of America, the main
speaker, said:
"We are not worried about
anti-Semitism — we are wor-
ried about the blessing, the
freedom, the prosperity which
is ours. Will we be able to stand
freedom as we were able to
stand up under persecution?
Will we be able to stand pro-
sperity as our forefathers did
adversity? To quote the Psalm-
ist 'God gave them what they
asked for and into their souls
there entered a leanness.' "

A fine start was made at the
dinner towards fulfilling the
goal. Dr. Greenberg continued:
"We are here to honor four
worthy and outstanding rabbis.
We are here to do something
for a great cause. We are here
because we are being pushed
by the momentum of a 3,500-
year tradition. We don't want to
see it destroyed. We don't want
to write the last chapter of a
great history. That is why we
see reenacted again and again
in every Jewish community a
great roster of activity. We live
meaningfully as a people only
when our soul is sensitized. We
live as Jewish people only as
long as we mature our souls
and our minds.
"We must recognize that the
four men we are honoring rep-
resent the one group that is in-
dispensable to the Jewish
people, for they represent a
faith in the worthwhileness of

Dr. Greenberg to four proph-

in the perpetuation of Juda-

higher principles of rabbis
