MONTREAL (JTA) — Issues of
fund-raising and organization for
Israel were evaluated at a series
of meetings between officials of
the United Israel Appeal of Cana-
da and the Zionist Organization
of Canada with Dr. Israel Gold-
stein, world chairman of the United
Israel Appeal. The meetings were
held in Montreal and Toronto.
After the Montreal discussions,
Dr. Goldstein conferred with

wasteland of Zion resigned them-
selves to waiting for deliverance,
though their hearts told them it
was in vain.
But there was one who refused
to sit by idly. Rabbi Akiba, now
aged and weary, taught the Torah
despite the Roman decree against
religious study; told the fearful
ones that, as a fish could not live
without water, so could the Jewish
people not exist without Torah.
One day there came to Rabbi
Akiba a mighty man, fierce-looking
and broad-shouldered. "I am Si-
meon bar Koziba," he said. "I
stand ready to strike the blow of
Akiba said, "In the Bible it is
written: 'There shall step forth
a star out of Jacob and destroy
the enemies of Israel.' I name you
Bar Kochba—Son of the Star!"
Thousands of followers were
drawn to the new leader. They
even came from communities out-
side of Judea. Under Bar Kochba's
guidance, the people prepared se-
cretly, hiding their homemade
weapons in caves and ravines
against the day of revenge.
The moment came soon enough.
In Rome, Emperor Hadrian or-
dered his Judean governor to
erect a pagan temple in Jerusalem.
Bar Kochba moved swiftly. In two
years, his men captured ninety
forts and a thousand cities and
villages, including Jerusalem.
Frightened lest other enslaved
peoples follow Bar Kochba's ex-
ample, Hadrian sent his best gen-
eral, Julius Severus, into the fray.
Severus retook all the forts, and
