LETTER BOX

Automation & Old Ideas

Editor, The Jewish News:
The writer noticed an article in
the press about the dignity of
man and of automation. He said,
"we must recapture the power of
the Sabbath." The rabbi also said
that all problems facing the Amer-
ican people today are eclipsed by
"the much greater problem of au-
tomation."
The writer of this letter will
soon reach his 90th birthday and I
have spent my youth in learning
and later in business and in in-
dustry, and I must confess that I
do not understand the rabbi's
article that automation rips old
ideas, and that automation is
detrimental to workers, to the Sab-
bath and to Jews in general.
I understand that automation is
a system of mass production with
less manpower, and therefore
workers will have more leisure and
more wages, and will enjoy life
more, because automation will
produce more commodities at lower
prices. -
Automation, and high wages and
less work, and less sweat to make
a living have nothing to do with
religion, with Judaism, with the
Sabbath, nor with the unaffiliated
Jews.
I wish to remind the rabbi that
automation is a system of mass
production and mass consumption,
and religion is a system of wor-
ship, and prayers, and to observe
the Sabbath according to the var-
ious religions.

Regarding 'Continuity'

Editor, Jewish News:
I read with interest your edi-
torial (Sept. 24) concerning the
problems of continuity in the Jew-
ish community. The article way
both interesting and thought-pro-
voking.
Why must we lament the decline
of Yiddish as the language of Jew-
ish expression? Why must we be-
moan the decrease of Jews . in the
fields of medicine, law, and above
all, football or boxing? Are not
these "Jewish attributes" derived
from an outside stimulus?
Rather than worrying about
"muscular Judaism," our lamenta-
tions must lay on the fact that,

Friedman-Topcik Troth
Told in Ann Arbor

instead of concentrating our ef-
forts on developing a modern Jud-
aism, relevant to our era, the
Jewish community has been stun-
ned and stopped by the right hook
of a reticent traditionalism depen-
dent on the status quo.
Prayer has lost its meaning to
the Jew; heritage, instead of being
insightful and definitive, is out
of our experimental ken.
Unlike the Jews of the shtetl, to
whom there was mention in the
editorial, we have not used our
tradition and heritage as a founda-
tion upon which to build. We sigh
relief that we no longer wear the
traditional garb; but we fail to
realize that these people adopted
this mode of dress from their nei-
ghbors in Eastern Europe. We al-
so fail to realize, that, while the

Jews of Eastern Europe were true

to the _traditions, they made many
adaptations in order to live with
their neighbors and to develop a
creative culture indigenous to the
provinces in which they lived—a
culture relevant to the Jewish com-
munity of this area of settlement.
Innovation is not alien to Juda-
ism. Each community has altered
customs and practices while re-
maining within the framework of
a universal Jewish creed. The rich
heritage of the shtetl can only be
a lesson to us. Continuity in Juda-
ism demands change.

"MILESTONES ALONG THE
MARCH," published by Praeger,
chronicles the pattern of American
advancement along the road to full
democracy through 12 historic

civil rights documents between the
years 1941 to 1965.

Encyclopaedic Error

Our review of "Encyclopaedia
of Jews in Sports," in last week's
issue quoted the reference to Mer-
vin Pregulman as his having play-
ed for Michigan State. That's in-

correct. Pregulman played for the
University of Michigan and later
was a professional football player
for Green Bay and Lions.
