Dr. Jacob E. Goldman, director
of the scientific laboratory of the
Ford Motor Company, spoke on
"The Role of the Book in Jewish
Life," and stated, in part:
"There are many parallels to be
drawn by the trends in modern
scientific research and the de-
clining intellectuality in modern
American life and particularly in
the Jewish community. The major
development of science that char-
acterized the half-century prior to
World War II, were the products
of an intensive dedication to
science for its own sake rather
than any determination to exploit
it for ulitarian purposes. Applica-
tions inevitably came later. This
has more or less disappeared. To-.
day, in the feverish push toward
the exploitation of science for
specific goals such as weaponry,
space exploration and moon land-
ings, the pursuit of science for
its own sake, for the excitement
of its very pursuit, has all but dis-
appeared and with it has dis-
appeared much of the spark that
kindled the fires of yesteryear.
THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
Friday, May 22, 1964
"To the Jewish scholar, the con-
cept of knowledge for its own sake
is not at all a new one. Torah Lish-
mah—study for its own sake, is a
concept as old as the nation. The
pursuit of study as an end and not
a means was the very life's blood
that nurtured Jewish scholarship
for two millenia but this too is a
disappearing characteristic of our
people. We see around us too
much preoccupation with the why's
of doing things. We go to school
to train professionally. We study
subjects that may be useful to us
either to earn a living or to be-
come successful members of a
community or to become Bar Mitz-
"Perhaps the greatest indication
of the status of knowledge lies in
the libraries. I can think of no
more certain reflection of the
decline of intellectuality of any
group or society than the use of
its libraries. That is why in the
education of youngsters today
particularly in the culture and
heritage of our faith, the function
of the libraries is so important.
How can the youngster learn of
these traditions, how can he learn
of the wealth of knowledge and
scholarship that makes up this
heritage, without seeing on the
shelves the very books that are
the heritage and without learning
to pore into these volumes and
appreciate their meanings and
