went to Palestine. Their
great-great-grandmother tried
to settle there, when she was
80 years old, but the Turks
wouldn't let her. Despite her
age, she had a will of her
own, and the Turks no doubt
figured it was best not to
take chances. With both
Herzl and grandma to fight,
they were bound to lose.
It is reported that 40,000
Russian Jews entered Israel
the past year, many of them
having problems of adjust-
ment.
It is not easy for an older
person to accept a new coun-
try. There was the man from
Newark who went to London.
It's a great city, he agreed,
but not like Newark. And
Paris had great charm but it
was not like Newark. Finally.
he arrived in Heaven. Ah,
here it was different. It was
intoxicating, a fairy land but
alas, it, too, was not like
Newark.
King James had made life
miserable for the Pilgrims,
as they were to be called,
and after a strenuous voyage
on the Mayflower they
reached the coast of Massa-
chusetts. Beautiful country,
beautiful trees, beautiful
harbor. They settled there,
but their hearts longed for
old England and they named
their cities, Boston and Wor-
cester after the English cities
they left behind.
Some of them, too, were
good Zionists. They gave bib-
lical names to some towns.
That's why we have Salem,
Mass., and Jerusalem, R.I.
The Jews coming from
Russia to America said, "A
klug zu Columbus." They
liked the new world but there
was nostalgia for the little
towns they had left behind.
Here, they could put all the
sugar they wanted in the tea.
They missed the joy of hav-
ing to drink the tea with only
one piece of sugar. Here,
they had gas and electric
light and they missed the
candles. And there was the
problem of language. They
were called "greenhorns."
Children are never "green-
horns." They take up a
language easily.
But aside from the diffi-
culty of acquiring the lan-
guage is the nostalgia for the
old home roots.
"Mid pleasures and palaces
Though we may roam
Be it ever so humble
There is no place like home."
Home, Sweet Home—what
American has not felt the
anguish of this song by John
Howard Payne, whose mother
was Sarah Isaacs.
We think it was the Jewish
part of Payne that wrote
Home Sweet Home. Jews
have been the eternal wan-
derers and that perhaps is the
explanation of the strength
the Zionist idea. It just means
that Jews also are entitled to
a homeland.

Midrash on Slander

Rabban Gamaliel com-
manded his slave, Tobi, to
buy the best edible in the
market. The slave brought
home a tongue. The next day
Rabban Gamaliel command-
ed him to buy the worst
thing in the market and
again Tobi brought home a
tongue. When asked for an
explanation, the wise slave
replied: "There is nothing
better than a good tongue,
and nothing worse than an
evil tongue." — Vayikra
Rabba.
