the most vigorous activity in be-
half of the development and
strengthening of Israel's econ-
omy.

In stressing the extraordinary
Success of the recent New Year
and Day of Atonement activities.
Bernstein observed that the com-
munity consciousness of Israel's
crisis and urgent needs during this
period moved Jewish congregations
to act with great unanimity.
He added that the measure of re-
sponse to the Israel Bond drive
indicated an acute awareness of
American and Canadian Jewry of
the vital link between a strong
economy and survival for the peo-
ple and the state of Israel.
Approximately 800 synagogues
were enrolled in the special High
Holy Day effort this year. In addi-
tion, many congregations partici-
pate in the Israel Bond campaign
through special dinners and other
functions under their auspices dur-
ing the course of the year.

CHICAGO (JTA)—A "large seg-

ment" of the members of a new
Chicago congregation, organized to
"recapture the alienated Jewish
young people," worship regularly
for the first time since their Bar or
Bat Mitzva, according to the presi-
dent and rabbi of the synagogue.
The goals of Cong. Beth Ami,
which was started last January,
were described in a letter to the
'Sentinel of Chicago.
President Nat Gershman and
Rabbi Irving Schrier reported that
in the late months of 1969, a group
of seven young married couples in
suburban Chicago "became in-
creasingly disturbed at what had
come to pass for modern syna-
gogue life" and decided "to do
something about it."
The families formed a congrega-
tion and adopted a constitution
which established the principle that
all members were entitled to a
voice in synagogue affairs.
They said that, accordingly,
synagogue ritual honors are not
"purchased" but are distributed
equitably among the eongregants
and that "the leadership of the
congregation is not vested solely
in the most affluent members."
"The congregation's goal is to
recapture the alienated Jewish
young people, and to instill pride
and dignity into a generation where
disinterest and cynicism now pre-
vail," the officials declared. The
constitution specifies that "no bur-
densome financial obligations be
placed upon its members. A most
reasonable dues structure has been
formulated, bearing that very prin-
ciple in mind."
They reported that most of the
congregants are in the 25- to 35-
year age group, with a smaller per-
centage over 40. From the original
seven families, they said the con-
gregation has grown to a member-
ship of 115 families.
Average attendance at Sabbath
services—"without any Bar or Bat
Mitzva celebrations or the like"—
has been 75 or more. They reported
also that the synagogue's adult
education programs "have been ex-
ceptionally well attended and show
no signs of abatement even after
the glitter and newness have worn
off."
The "usual motive" for joining a
synagogue—to give children a Jew-
ish education--does not apply to
Cong. Beth Ami, the officials add-
ed, because only "a very small
percentage" of the congregants
have children old enough to be en-
rolled in Hebrew school.

Masmid

A "Masmid" is a term given to
a diligent student. The term comes
from the word meaning steady or
constant. This would indicate that
such a student is always studying
without interruption. The poet
Malik wrote a very famous pdem
describing such a student.

WE ARE ALL AGAINST PROPOSAL C. In our opinion, it is neither in the Jewish in-
terest nor in the interest of the general public. IT GOES MUCH TOO FAR! ! !

Any law that is so vaguely worded and provides a legal basis for extreme inter-

pretations by courts or administrators, is a DANGEROUS LAW.
