New Path Winds
Into History of
Illusive Masada

MASADA, Israel — Masada, the
ancient stronghold of Herod, for
centuries has remained aloof and
illusive, out of reach to all but
the most persistent climbers. Now,
after two years of concentrated
archeological work and recon-
struction, • the ruins of this sector
miles from the Dead Sea, 95
miles southeast of Tel Aviv, have
been opened to the public.
This imposing structure, perch-
ed at the top of a massive, flat-
topped rock, is the center of a
poignant and interesting history
concerning its final defenders, the
Jewish men, women and children
who struggled to defy the Roman
troops in 70 A.D.
The Roman soldiers, prepar-
ing to wipe out the last of the
Jewish resistance, built a siege
wall and seven military camps
surrounding Masada's base. Over-
come by their might, the Jews
knew the end was near, and
their leader. Eleazar ben Yair
gathered them together for a
final appeal, recorded this way
by the first-century Palestin-
ian historian, Flavius Josephus:
" 'Let our wives die unabused,
our children without knowledge
of slavery. After that. let us do
each other an ungrudging kind-
ness, preserving our freedom as a
glorious winding sheet. But first
let our possessions and the whole
fortress go up in flames. One
thing only let us spare—our store
of food. It will bear witness when
we are dead to the fact that we
perished but because, as we re-
solved at the beginning, we chose
death rather than slavery.' " Thus
they were found by the Romans,
dead by their ,o n: hands.
Archeologists have discovered
some interesting artifacts among
the ruins. among them a swim-
ming pool. a Roman bath and two
palaces built by Herod. Mosaics,
cisterns ritual baths and a syna-
gogue facing Jerusalem, have also
been uncovered.
All appear as they did then;
nothing has been added except a
stairway. easing the difficulties of
the 900-foot climb into history.

NEW YORK (JTA) — A confer-
ence of the World Center of Eur-
opean Rabbis here Feb. 10 decided
unanimously to ask the West Ger-
man government to fix a definite
time for the restoration of Jewish
cemeteries in Europe ravaged by
the Nazis.
Rabbi Moses Rubin, president of
the World Center, reported on a
visit of a World Center delegation
to Germany last year. At that time,
the rabbis presented to West Ger-
man officials a request for such in-
demnification for an estimated 2,-
000 Jewish cemeteries vandalized
by special Nazi "cemetery batta-
lions." Rabbi Rubin noted that
favorable action on the request
had been promised by M. Hirsch,
president of the Indemnification
Committee of the West_ German
Parliament, but that the promise
remained unfulfilled.
Rabbi Rubin reported that to

MONTREAL (JTA)—Paul Gerin-
Lajoi, Quebec minister of educa-
tion, anticipating the publication
of the fourth and final report of
the parent commission which has
brought sweeping educational re-
forms to the province of Quebec,
stated in a speech that he believes
that the final report is going to
recommend the establishment of
a non-denominational school sys-
tem in Quebec for those who are
for such a system based on linguis-
tic and cultural lines and not on
religious lines.
For many years the Christo-
logical aspect as now existing in
the Protestant system has been
in name only. This has been
proved by the recent statute which
provides for the nomination of
five Jews to the Protestant School
Board, of whom one must be on
the executive committee of the
school board.
