The Canadian prime minister

Traditionalist Suggests Way of Life
to Transmit Unique Jewish Values

"If you want to see your child
live justice, he must see you act
A traditionalist rabbi, speaking
"not as a rabbi, but as a fellow
Jew, a parent," urged his listen-
ers to transmit Jewish values to
their children as a way of life. "I
see," said Dr. Emanuel Rackman,
"simple values disappearing be-
cause Jews are not living Jewish
Dr. Rackman, assistant to the
president of Yeshiva University,
delivered Wednesday the final
lecture in the Midrasha Institute
on "Values and Commitments for
Our Day."
One of those "simple values."

said, is being forfeited for prac-

many parents sit down with
their child on a Friday night
and study for love of study? .. .
If your child told you he wanted
to devote his life to learning in
a Yeshiva, you'd take him to the
Dr. Rackman also suggested
that the value of charity has lost
its meaning among the younger
generation and that Jewish family
life has declined, with an accomp-
anying rise in juvenile delin-
quency, alcoholism and suicide.
"The 'togetherness' of Jewish
life is gone," he said, adding that
there was more internal security
"in the ghetto of the Middle
Even the concept of "mishpa-

While the world cherishes many
Jewish values, much that is
uniquely Jewish is not shared by
western civilization, Dr. Backman
As an example, "How does man
use both body and soul to the
glorification of God?" He cited the
"different element," the spiritually
uplifting customs and ceremonies
that Jews "added to all sensual

nothing new, Dr. Rackman con-
tends. Citing the Talmud, he
said Jews long recognized that

"the right to a job is the right
to live." He also pointed out that
Jewish law emphasizes duty
over right, whereas "in western
culture, everyone knows his
rights, but how many know their
Dr. Rackman mentioned, as a
Jewish value, the "deflating atti-
tude to state." The idolatry of a
nation's sovereignity, he said, is
alien to Judaism. "To the Jews
it was never so horrible to be a
second-rate state."
"What was unique about Jewish
values was the philosophical vali-
dation of these values," he said.
"If values are relative (to each
civilization)," Dr. Rackman went
on, "who would be so foolish as
to die for them? The traditionalist
says that rightness or wrongness
of behavior is not relative, but
"To believe in law and justice
