`Beyond Thyself' Volume Contains
20 of Rabbi Hayim Donin's Sermons

pri

the Jewish home, the school and
the synagogue.
Values to live by, Jewish dig-
nity, the delight of the Sabbath,
the priority of the syngogue, the
importance and values of ritual
are among the covered subjects.
A dedicated alumnus of Yeshiva
University, Rabbi Donin devoted a
special sermon to his alma mater.
There is - an additional sermon
on the day schools, with an appeal
for such schools and yeshivot.
An impressive Hanukah ser-
mon, an outline of a program for
the a g i n g. and several other
topics all aimed at advancing
Jewish cultural values are
among the sermon topics. The
title for the book is from the
Rosh Hashanah 1962 sermon,
"Beyond Thyself," in which Rab-
bi Donin asserts that "every per-
son has a duty to leave this
world just a little bit better off
on account of his having been
alive."
Rabbi Donin concludes the 20
topics with excerpts from a letter
he addressed to members of Con-
gregation Bnai David, Aug. 28,
1963, "Reflections on Ten Years,"
evaluating his decade of service
to the Detroit synagogue.

Bloch Publishing Co. this week
issued an impressive volume of
sermons by Rabbi Hayim Donin
o f Congregation
Bnai David, un-
der the title "Be-
yond Thyself."
The 20 ser-
mons chosen by
Rabbi Donin for
inclusion in this
volume are, as he
states in his fore-
ward, from an
accumulated tot-
al collection of 750
sermons and ad-
dresses.
Homiletical
themes based
on weekly To- Rabbi Donin
rah portions are intermingled in
this collection with general sub-
jects, and the. Detroit rabbi con-
tinually places emphasis on the
cultural and spiritual aspects of
Jewish • life and Jewish needs.
While there has been much talk
about "the vanishing JeW," Rabbi
Donin commenced the series of
20 essayS in "Beyond Thyself"
with the sermon he delivered last
Rosh Hashanah under the title
"The Vanquishing American Jew."
Here he pleads primarily in sup-
port of day • schools . as • the best
means for developing a vanquish-
ing instead of a vanishing Jew. It
is a plea for the strengthening of

Jack Kraizman, newly-elected
president of Congregation Bnai
David, and Morris Brandwine,
the congregation's past presi-
dent, head a committee that is
distributing Rabbi Donin's book
among interested readers. Copies
of the book may be ordered by
calling them or the synagogue
office.

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Chair-
man Michael A. Feighan of the
House • Immigration subcommittee
blocked an administration effort
to obtain subcommittee action on
President Johnson's bill to liberal-
ize immigration policies.
The Ohio Democrate refused to
permit Rep. Jack Brooks, Texas
Democrat, to bring up the admin-
istration bill at a subcommittee
meeting. Charges of delaying tac-
tics were made against Rep.
Feighan, who already introduced
his oWn bill which differed in sev-
eral major aspects from the more
liberal administration bill. Rep.
Brooks said he would seek action
at the next meeting of the sub-
committee.
Before the Senate Immigration
subcommittee, Sen. Joseph D.
Tydings, Maryland Democrat,
urged passage of the administra-
tion bill to abolish the national
origins quota system. He said,
"immigration on a non-discrimin-
atory basis would enhance and in-
vigorate our economy, our society
and our culture."
At a dinner sponsored by the
Uunted Hias Service on behilf
of the United Jewish Appeal,
Sen. Robert F. Kennedy stressed
the need of relaxation of the
present immigration law and for
the abolishment of the national
origin quota.
More than $750,000 in contribu-
tions were announced at the din-
ner.
Murray I. Gurfein, president of
United Hias Service, presented
the Senator with the organization's
film, "He Who Saves a Single
Life," which will be deposited in
the John F. Kennedy Memorial
Library archives.

Reform Rabbis' Parley
Hears Program for
'Neglected' Collegians

CINCINNATI (JTA) — A five-
point program of action by Ameri-
can Reform Judaism to attract
college youth and Jewish intel-
lectuals into the ranks of Jewish
life was proposed here Tuesday
at the opening session of the 76th
annual five-day convention of the
Central Conference of American
Rabbis.
Rabbi Leon I. Feuer, CCAR
president, told the Reform rabbis
that "our college youths constitute
the most tragically and wastefully
neglected area of American Jewish
life." He urged that attention
should be paid also to the "grow-
ing number of Jews on the facul-
ties of our colleges and universi-
ties" who should "provide us with
a tremendous reservoir of intel-
lectual energy."
He told the rabbinical delegates
that there were an estimated 300,-
000 Jewish students on American
college campuses and that the
total amount spent by Jewish or-
ganizations for college programs
was about $8 per student.
"Unknown numbers of our
young men and women are wan-
dering in the limbo of Jewish re-
ligious apathy, ignorance and dis-
interest when at least some of
them might be forming the' van-
guard of a vigorous and creative
American Judaism of tomorrow,"
he said.
He proposed the launching of
an "intensive study" by the CCAR
and the Union of American He-
brew Congregations of the Jewish
campus population to determine
the "religious and learning needs
of Jewish students and teachers."
He proposed also, the sending
of rabbinic scholars and teachers
to college campuses to conduct
religious services, establish Jew-
ish study programs and engage in
discussions with Jewish faculty
members on Judaism, theology and
religion.
He also urged the establishment
of chairs of Jewish learning on
campuses, continuation of experi-
mental programs now being con-
ducted with Jewish college stu-
dents in New England, and a can-
vass of the financial resources of
Reform Judaism and foundations
to meet the costs of the proposed
pragram. He said Many of the pro•
posed programs could be conduc-
ted in cooperation with the pre-
sent work of Bnai Brith Hillel
Foundations which, he asserted,
was "being asked to do an almost
imposSible eclectic job with all
too meager resources."

Says Zionist Body 'Substitute' Idea
Wasn't Official Assembly Suggestion

NEW YORK (JTA):.-Dr. Simon
Greenberg, vice chancellor of the
Jewish Theological Seminary, in
an address before the luncheon
forum of the American Zionist
Council, said that the draft of a
so-called 'Blue Paper' submitted
by the commission on Zionism
and Israel of the Rabbinical As-
sembly at its recent convention
"bore no official imprint and was
merely the reflection of a mood
which exists among some of our
people who have a profound con-
cern for the future of Zionism
and Israel."
The draft suggested the re-
placing of the World Zionist Or-
ganization by a World Jewish
Assembly.

"This paper was in no sense an
official document, nor even a first
draft of one," said Dr. Greenberg.
"I personally do not associate my-
self with everything in it, and it
is regrettable that it was given
wide publicity. It Was meant to
form the basis of future discus-
sions and nothing more. The Rab-
binical Assembly, which has al-
ways been a practically unanimous
pro-Zionist body, is not interested
