Comay Evaluates
Zionism's Merits

In his stirring address at the
United Nations in which he con-
demned the manifestations of anti-
Semitism, Israel's chief delegate
to the UN, Michael Comay, des-
cribed the merits of Zionism and
the movement's historic role, and
"Zionism is the name of the
national movement of the Jewish
people. My delegation feels proud
and privileged to represent in this
world forum a small member-
state which was born out of the
Zionist Movement. In fact, Zion-
ism is one of the most stirring and
constructive national movements
in human history. Historically, it is
based on a unique and unbroken
connection, extending some four
thousand years, between the Peo-
ple of the Book and the Land of
the Bible.
"It was there, in the Land of
Zion (hence the term 'Zionism')
that our people enjoyed national
independence. Later they lost it,
regained it, and lost it again, in
the perpetual struggle against the

JPS Volume ‘Josel of liosheim'
Tells of 15th Century Events,
Describes Shiadlan's Activities

"Josel of Rosheim" by Selma
Stern, translated from the Ger-
man by Gertrude Hirschler, the
newest volume of the Jewish Pub-
lication Society of America, is an
important addition to the Jewish
history bookshelves. It is an ac-
count of the intercessions by the
"Commander of Jewry in the Holy
Roman Empire of the German Na-
tion," as the subtitle explains the
rank of the hero of this bio-
graphical - historical sketch.
Josel was one of the eminent
shtadlanim — the individualist who
spoke for Jewry, acted in behalf
of oppressed and exiled, assisted
them when he could, interceded
for them with officialdom, with
emperors and religious leaders.
The compiler of this record of
events in Europe as they affected
the Jews in the 15th and 16th cen-
turies has gone to great length
to bring together all details, min-
ute and major, in explaining the
character of Josel, his ambitions,
his dedication to the task of
counteracting discriminations.
Much is clarified in this note-
worthy historical contribution.
The reader gets a better idea
of the disputations that often
were held between Jews and
Christians; the occasions when
they were banned or rejected
and the times when they oc-
curred. There are reviews of the
incidents that led to accusations
of ritual murder against the
Jews and the sufferers, some
of whom were compelled by
torture to "confess," the bigoted
accusers and the defenders are
presented in the accounts of
those tragic times.
Dr. Stern, in her account of the
events of that era, goes into con-
siderable detail to describe how
usurers were treated, the frequent
banning of them, the actions against
them by the Jewish community,
the motivations of the Christian
leaders in dealing with them.
Josel complied with the demands
of the Christian rulers to set up
a definite interest rate, or to ban
the practice when there was
demand for such action. He
defended accused and abused Jews
but when they were guilty he
admitted the guilt. On one oc-
casion, while contacting King
Ferdinand, Josel, according to
Dr. Stern, "stated it was obvious
that moneylending had brought
the Jews no great fortune but
only a bare livelihood, for they
had not been able to build houses
of stone for themselves, or to
acquire land and people as

pledges. 'Since the Jews, after all,
are also creatures and creations of
God Almighty,' Josel asked the
Estates to exercise 'human patience
and compassion' in their dealings
with them and not to revoke their
ancient freedoms."
But when he found abuses, he
admitted to the Chancellor at
Wuerttemberg, in a converation at
Haganau, that peasants were suf-
fering at the hands of Jewish
moneylenders and he proclaimed
a "great and mighty" ban against
such practices.
Josel's dealings with Martin
Luther and the expose of Lu-
ther's bias, his advocacy of in-
justice against Jewry, his con-
doning of looting and robbing
Jews because they would not
accept his faith, are part of an
important expose of the condi-
tions of the time described in
this JPS volume. The well es-
tablished facts about Luther,
whose anti-Jewish ravings were
akin to the worst in Nazism,
again emerge in this work.
There are accounts of informers
— Jews who betrayed their own
kinsmen — and there emerge in
this book noted Christians like
Johann Reuchlin who mastered
Hebrew, who came to the defense
of the suffering Jews. It is true
that even Reuchlin wanted to see
Jews converted to Christianity,
but he was never brutal, he always
defended, he spoke the truth in
exposing the atrocious blood libel,
in presenting basic facts about
Jews and Judaism.
It is in this respect that the
presentation of numerous ritual
murder cases, against which Josel
fought with courage, make the new
JPS book of additional merit.
"Josel of Rosheim" retains an
important record about a very
eminent Jewish spokemen, a prom-
inent shtadlan, as a basic part of
Jewish history, and deserves the
widest circulation.

Israel's Tourists
About one quarter of a million

tourists and visitors came to Israel
in 1964, and stayed in the country
an average of 30 days. But about
90,000 Israelis left the country in
the same period for tours abroad

or on business trips. About one
third of these returning Israelis
spent about one month abroad,
18 per cent stayed away for two
months, and 17 per cent returned
after a stay of less than one month
abroad. The average stay of the
Israeli abroad was 185 days,

great colonial empires of the time.
We live in an era of movement for

national self - determination, and
Zionism is perhaps the oldest of
them all. It was this longing to
return to its national homeland
that sustained the Jewish people
in its suffering throughout the ages.
Our people dreamt of the eventual
rebuilding of the ancient land.
"In modern times, spurred by
the twin forces of anti-Semitic per-
secution and of nationalism, the
Jewish people organized the Zion-
ist Movement in order to trans-
form their dream into reality.
Since the turn of the century the
Zionist Movement has existed in
almost every country where Jews
live. More than that, support for
its aim was written into the League
of Nations Mandate for Palestine,
and was again endorsed by the
United Nations in 1947, when the
General Assembly voted by over-
whelming majority for the restora-
tion of Jewish- independence in
our ancient land. It is worth re-
calling that the Soviet Union
strongly supported that proposal.
At the 12th meeting of the Ad Hoe
Committee on the Palestinian Ques-
tion during the second session of

the General Assembly, the repre-
sentative of the Soviet Union, Mr.

Tsarapkin, said:
" 'The Jewish people were . .
striving to create a state of their
own and it would be unjust to deny
them that right ... The members
of the United Nations could help
the Jewish people by acting in ac-
cordance with the principles of the
Charter, which called for the guar-
anteeing to every people of their
right to independence and self-
determination.' " (Official Records,
page 69)."

Without Surgery

Stops Itch—Relieves Pain

For the first time science has found

a new healing substance with the as-
tonishing ability to shrink hemor-

rhoids and to relieve pain — without
surgery. In case after case, while
gently relieving pain, actual reduc-
tion (shrinkage) took place. Most
amazing of all — results were so thor-
ough that sufferers made astonishing
statements like "Piles have ceased to
be a problem!" The secret is a new
healing substance (Bio-Dyne®)— dis-
