Young women farmers are shown using a mechanized system
for spraying a newly-planted orange grove at an experimental farm
settlement in the Negev, northwest of Beersheba. The agricultural
development of the area, which is helping to make room for new
immigrants, is being aided by the National Water Project, built with
the aid of Israel Bond funds. In the spraying procedure in the

tractor, which is fitted with a special attachment that covers four
rows of trees simultaneously.

Fromm Analyzes
Meyer Levin's 'The Story of Israel' Christology, Peace
Traces Past History, State's Triumphs View of Prophets

or the well - known author
Meyer Levin, Israel is "'his second
home." He began his literary ca-
reer in Chicago. He moved to Pal-
estine, labored among the builders
of Zion, returned to this country,
resettled in Israel and for the past
.decade or more has been writing
from Israel and has labored in be-
half of the Jewish State.
His newest book, "The Story of
Israel," therefore emerged as a
labor of love. Published by G. P.
Putnam's Sons (200 Madison, NY),
this splendidly written account of

names of many of the great
heroes in the struggle for that
freedom, those of the Aaron-
sohns as well as of the Zionist
leaders, loom large in this mag-
nificent tale.
Primarily, it is the story of ,the
great gathering, and the descrip-
tion of a people's emergence
from the ghetto into_ a state of
national independence is, indeed,
that of a great love by a dedi-
cated admirer of the Jewish deter-
mination never again to permit
homelessness to drag the people
into degradation.
Of course, the heroes of the
State of Israel pass in review
in this story. Levin also writes
about the workers and the sages,
the military leaders and the schol-
ars. He tells about Weizmann,
Ben-Gurion, Sharett, Eshkol —
about Generals Yadin and Dayan,
and about the last two there is
this deeply moving concluding
paragraph to the book:
"Isn't it a strange and beauti-
ful symbol, that after the first
Chief of Staff of the Israel
army resigned to go back to the
study of the Dead Sea Scrolls
(he referred to Yadin), another
Chief of Staff, General Dayan,
also resigned to go back to his
studies, and then to become—
the Secretary of Agriculture.
Indeed, as it is written, 'And
they shall beat their swords
into plowshares."
It is in this spirit that Levin re-
views Israel's history—past and
present — and introduces the new
nation to his readers.
His book contains a number of
very impressive photographs by
Archie Lieberman and there are
several sketches of Israelis--kib-
butzniks and others—by Eli Levin
that add to the merit of the book.

MEYER LEVIN

a young nation's struggles and suc-
cesses, of the events that preceded
the rebirth of the nation, the Jew-
ish people's difficult centuries of
exile and the years of glory in state-
hood, is excellent for young read-
ers 'and most informative for their
elders.
The story begins with a per-
sonal note—about his own family,
his wife, his children, their inter-
ests in Israel—and a comment on
what makes Israel "so desperately
prized: to be fought over by
Philistines, Greeks, Romans, Sara-
cens, Crusaders, Ottomans, British,
Arabs and Jews: to be the source
of so much conflict, tragedy and

yet of elation .. ." and the account
that follows is descriptive of the
historic events alluded to.

His review is of the history of
the Jews, starting with biblical
times, leading - up to current
events, intermingled with the
chronicles of our people as they
underwent pogroms, experienc-
ing difficulties wherever they
turned, making the daring choice
between submission to indig-
nities and the quest for freedom
as offered in the Zionist idea
developed by Theodor Herzl. The

Devoting a chapter on "Early
Christianity and Its Idea of Jesus"
in his "The Dogma of Christ," is-
sued as a paperback by Doubleday,
Erich Fromm quotes from Jo-
sephus, analyzes Pharisee and Sad-
ducee ideologies and discusses the
Am Ha-Aretz as he was viewed in
Jewish life.
Fromm declares that "every at-
tempt to understand the origin of
Christianity must begin with an
investigation of the economic, cul-
tural and psychic situation of its
earliest believers."
Much of the background ma-
terial, as quoted from Josephus,
is incorporated in this chapter,
and the activities of the Zealots
and the Sicarii and the Chris-
tology of the early community
are thoroughly reviewed.
He points out that this Chris-
tology "respects the concept of the
messiah chosen by God to intro
duce a kingdom of righteousness
and love, a concept which had
been familiar among the Jewish
masses for a long time."
"In only two ideas of the new
faith," he writes, "do we find ele-
ments that signify something spe-
cifically new: in the fact of his
exaltation as Son of God to sit at
the right hand of the Almighty,
and in the fact that this messiah
is no longer the powerful, victor-
ious hero, but his significance and
dignity reside just in his suffer-
ing, in his death on the cross."
And he states that the idea of a dy-
ing messiah or dying God is not
new and he refers to Ezra and
Messiah for proof.
In a concluding chapter on the
prophetic concept of peace, Fromm
asserts that "it is the experience of
`at-onement' with the world and
within itself; it is the_end of alien-
ation, the return of man to him-
self."
