Winnipeg Rabbi
Calls Day School
`Lifeline' in U. S.

A Canadian rabbi and educator
called the day school movement in
the United States "the lifeline of
the American Jewish community"
in an address at the Purim Gala
of the Yeshivath Beth Yehudah
Tuesday evening at Cong. Shaarey
Shomayim.
Rabbi Erwin E. Witty of Winni-
peg said that "only by strengthen-
ing the ties between the Jewish
community and the day school, can
we guarantee the survival of a
Jewish people bearing a link with
the historic Jewish community of
past generations."
He suggested that to stem the
tide of assimilation and inter-
marriage, "we have only one ef-
fective instrument, and that is
Jewish education. The masses
that have departed from the
mainstream of Jewish life have
done so because they have never
learned, through education, the
meaning of living Judaism."
Rabbi Witty is spiritual leader of
Cong. Beth Hamedrash Ashkenazi,
principal of both the Winnipeg Tal-
mud Torah Day School and the
Joseph Wolinsky Collegiate High
School and is director of Mai-
monides College.
Over 200 persons attended the
Purim event, at which a cantata
was presented by the Beth Yehu-
dah Boys Choir, under the direc-
tion of Rabbi Chaim Schloss.
Others who participated in the
program were Mrs. Joseph Hend-
ler, president of the PTA; Rabbi
Joseph Hirsch, chairman of the
board of PTA; Hillel L. Abrams,
president of Yeshivath Beth Yehu-
dah; Rabbi Sholom Goldstein, prin-
cipal of the Beth Jacob School;
Rabbi Samuel E. Cohen, English
principal of the Beth Yehudah
Schools; and Rabbi Israel Flam,
principal of the Oak Park branch.

`The Wall' Affirms
Jewish Humanity

Millard Lampell's "The Wall,"
a stage adaptation of the John
Hersey novel, performed to ca-
pacity audiences Tuesday and
Wednesday by the Temple Israel
Players, deals with the Warsaw
Ghetto Uprising in 1943, when
for 42 days the ragged and starv-
ing members of the Jewish com-
bat organization resisted the might
of the occupying German army.
It is the story of a people un-
conditioned and unprepared for
fighting by tradition and religious
conviction, taking up arms in
what they knew would be a
doomed struggle. It is the answer
to those who feel the Jews did
not sufficiently resist the perse-
cutions they suffered under Hitler.
All this came through in the
Temple Israel production, staged
in connection with the 25th anni-
versary of the uprising, though
the impact of the drama was some-
what diffused by a stiff and slow-
moving presentation.
The best performances were
those of Terry Green as Rachel
Apt, the strong older sister in
a family that disintegrates dur-
ing the course of the play; Iry
Barrel! as Dolek Berson, the
happy-go-lucky shirker whose
philosophy is "to survive," at
all costs, until the cost becomes
too great; and Alan Goldstein
as Fishel Shpunt, an eccentric
peddler and buffoon who proves
to be one of the imperishable
denizens of the ghetto.
Other characters are represen-
tative of the various reactions to
the Nazi horror. There is Mr. Apt,
Rachel's father, a well-to-do busi-
nessman who at first tries to "op-
erate" under the steadily worsen-
ing conditions, then abandons his
family and, with the aid of false
identity papers, goes "over the
wall."
There is Katz, always ready for
violence, who finds his role at last
in the closing hours of the resis-
tance. And there is Stefan, the
rabbi's son, who discovers that
wearing the enemy's uniform and
even helping to transport his peo-
ple to the death camps, can't save
him.
"The Wall" is a dramatization
of a people pushed beyond the
extremes of acceptance and toler-
ation. After grasping at every
false hope, after deluding them-
selves and rationalizing their con-
dition in a desperate attempt at
hanging on in a frightening situa-
tion, the ghetto inhabitants begin
to realize that the Nazis are. sys-
tematically killing them.
Then the Jews strike back. They
pick up guns and engage in a last
struggle to affirm their humanity.
This also came through in the
Temple Israel production of "The
Wall."
