Rabbi Morris Adler's
By SEYMOUR SIEGEL
Associate Professor of Theology,
Jewish Theological Seminary
"If a man is great," wrote Oli-
ver Wendell Holmes, "he makes
others believe in greatness. He
makes them incapable of mean •
ideals and easy self-satisfaction."
Morris Adler was a man who
fitted this definition. Ile was a
great human being, an outstanding
rabbi, a fervent Jew. Ile was the
spiritual leader of one of the lead-
ing congregations in the United
States. His several books werq
widely read. Living in the great
induArial center of Detroit, he
won for himself an important place
in the labor move.nent. A remark-

able orator and natural leader, he
was also a delightful human being
whose boisterous good humor, vi-
tality and keenness of mind up-
lifted all who came into. his
In the volume "May I Have A
Word With You?" published by
Crown we have a superb collection
of Rabbi Adler's shorter pieces ...
Morris Adler was both lover and
master of words, using the essay
form with artistry and restraint.
Through these writings we get an
idea of the kind of person he was
—the breadth of his interests, the
humaneness of his outlook, his pas-
sionate attachment to Judaism and
social justice . . .
We shall miss Rabbi Adler's
strong and wise voice. But our
fortune is great that that voice,
filled as it was with concern for
humanity and mentshlichkeit rings
out so loudly and clearly in "May
I Have A Word With You?"

conditioned room, taking leisurely strolls through our thousands
of acres of beautiful countryside.
Some people come for golf. And they get it 7157 yards worth

golf carts, putting greens, driving range, and Dr. of Golf, Tony

Some people come for the night life. And they get it. Watch-
ing Broadway entertainment in 2 swingin' niteclubs. And danc-
ing 'til dawn to the music of 4 bands (one at a time, please).
With late shows, too. And intimate revues.
Some people come to get away from the kids. They bring them
along with them and p0000f, we make them disappear. Some-
times for weeks at a time. Into a swingin' world of their own.

Another Israeli Bank
Taken Over; Faced
TEL AVIV (JTA)—The Credit
Bank of Israel has been taken over
by the Bank Leumi, Israel's larg-
est bank, because of 'financial
difficulties" and will be operated
by the Bank Leumi.
A Bank Leumi spokesman said
that the Bank Leumi had assured
the funds of the Credit Bank, one
of Israel's smaller banking insti-
tutions. There was no report on
the nature of the Credit Bank's
troubles, Last January, the Bank
of Israel took over two other
banks, Feuchtwanger and Ellerns,
after government investigators
found alleged mismanagement.
Dr. Y. Foeder, chairman of
the Bank Leumi, declared Mon-
day night that Israel's banking
system was basically sound de-
spite the takeovers of the three
Commenting on the problems of
the Feuchtwanger, Ellern and Is-
rael Credit banks, he emphasized
that all obligations of the three
banks to depositors would be paid
He also disclosed that the Bank
Leumi would pay 5,000,000 pounds
($1,600,000) for Ellerns and the
Credit Bank which have a total of
25 branches in Israel. He said
eight of the branches would be
operated as Leumi units and the
others sold to other Israeli banks
seeking new outlets.
Yankee High Scorer
Aids Israel Team
The basketball team of Maccabi
Tel-Aviv reached the finals of the
European Cup because of a Jewish
boy from Trenton, N.J., Cal Brodie.
Brodie, who played for the U.S.
team in Israel at the last Mac-
cabia in 1965, liked Israel and
promised to return, This he did
last summer, and now nearly won
the cup for Israel. A byplay to
the cup was as follows: Maccabi
Tel-Aviv had to play Ignes-Varese
and suddenly Brodie discovered
that his shoes were torn. In Israel
he could not find a suitable pair
to fit him and he had to request
the help of El Al to get him a pair
from New York, Within 48 hours
these shoes arrived in Tel Aviv
for him and he went on to score
more than 30 points by himself
for his team.
