LETTER BOX

Old Testament Offers
Recipe for Peaceful Life

Editor, The Jewish News:
The Old Testament is divinely
inspired; it contains words and
messages which give thought for
the whole human race that the
righteousness of the world belongs
to all of the people here on earth.
Everyone should read the bibli-
cal truths of those great men from
the Old Testament with understand-
ing. The readers will find that
those men possessed "peace of
mind" and a spiritual life that
would teach the reader how to ob-
tain a richer and nobler life.
It (the Old Testament) helped
the writer . . . to understand the
meaning of life and d e a t h, the
existence of all life and of the
power that rules the elements of
the universe.
All of these inspired me to think,
to analyze . . . and to write in
terms of peaceful living, with ma-
lice to none, with charity and with
good will to all men, regardless
of race, religion, color or origin.
WOLF LEVITAN,
