Essays by Detroiters in New
Volume 'The Ghetto and Beyond

How is life of the Jew in Amer-'
ica to be judged, how do Jews
respond to major political and so-
cial issues and what is the Amer-I
ican response to the Jew—if such
a response is to be judged at all?
Davis I. Rose, who heads the
Smith College department of
sociology and anthropology and is
a member of the graduate faculty
of the University of Massachusetts,
has compiled a series of essays—
some written for his book and
some reprinted—in his thought-pro-
voking volume "The Ghetto and
Beyond," published by Random
House.
Jews and their fellow Americans
appear here, realistically, in the
discussions on politics, religious
approaches, radicalism, human-
ism, the evolution from shtetl to
suburb.%
Attitudes on the Vietnam situa-

tion, trends among the youth to-
ward the Left, the relationships
with Israel and Israelis, the fre-
quent evidences of anti-Semit-

ism—these and very many more
aspects of Jewish life are under
review.
The editor-compiler points to a
latent anti-Semitism that can be
revived and to a refusal to worry
because Jews "feel they can ride
out the coming storms. Like their
forebears who came to settle on
the Lower East Side, the majority
of Jews still believe in America
and in the American people."
Prof. Rose makes this interest-
ing observation: "American Jews
delighted at Israeli victory in the
Six-Day War have evinced much
less enthusiasm for their own
country's protracted conflict in
Southeast Asia and and its stale-
mated war against poverty at
home. Other groups in American
life share the sense of frustration.
In the search for scapegoats that
may soon ensue. Jews may find
themselves most vulnerable to at-
tack from right, left and below.
By seeking reform and comprom-
ise on most issues instead of radi-
cal change, they may come in-
creasingly to appear too white for
the black militants, too red for the
white conservatives, and too yellow
for their own children."
This criticism, while it implies
that Jews are like their neighbors,
also admonishes that Jews must
be more searching for social
changes and for radical advances
towards a better life in America.

Israel Trade Deficit Up

JERUSALEM (ZINS) — Israel's
trade deficit doubled in 1968,
reaching $452,000,000. The reason:
Israel's huge defense expenditures
abroad, paid for in dollars. Some
$50,000,000 of Israel's hard cur-
rency is tied up in France as the
result of President de Gaulle's em-
bargo-money which Israel paid in
advance for planes which she never
received. Israel was therefore
forced to increase her import,
which exceeded her export, thus
creating an unfavorable trade bal-
ance last year. Israel's import
amounted to $1,000,000,000 while
her export was $600,000,000.

18,000 Jews in Arab Land

NEW YORK (ZINS) — Of the
350,000 Jews who in 1948 had lived
in Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon,
Libya, Yemen and Aden, most of
them for centuries, there are to-

day fewer than 18,000. In additi on
to Iraq's 3,000 Jews, most live in
Syria, where about 4,000 Jews

have been herded into ghettoes,
and about 1,000 live in Egypt,
many of them held in jail without
trial since June 1967, and all of
them stripped of their civil liber-
ties.

Mah-jongg and Jews

Was mah-jongg a Jewish crea-
tion?
Neill Elliott of Chicago. in a let-
ter to Newsweek, wrote:
"Mah-jongg sprang up among
Hellenized Jews about the year
200 BC and was regarded as one
of the more sinister debaucheries
by good Judean and Galilean Jews
right up to the fall of the Second
Temple and the final decimation
and Diaspora by the Romans. It
was carried to India by the family
of Simon of Tiberias, and later
worked its way eastward, oddly
enough, as an example of high
orthodoxy in the homes of Far
Eastern Jews.
"Recently, in Hong Kong, a
group of Chinese Jews expressed
amazement to me when I inform-
ed them that the playing of mah-
jongg was not considered charac-
teristic of Hasidic Jews either in
Israel or America, and that our
young people were not taught the
game in religious schools."
