Dinitz Appeals to Women for Greater U.S. Aliya

(JTA)—"We are today going
through our second battle for
our independence just as we
went through our first battle
for independence in 1948,"
declared Israel's Ambassa-
dor Simcha Dinitz in an ad-
dress here to 2,000 delegates
attending the convention of
the Women's League for Con-
servative Judaism.
He added: "We will over-
come our difficulties now
just as we did then for we
are stronger today than ever
before, and the Jewish people
is behind us."
Dinitz declared that Israel
could take care of herself
militarily in any new crisis
that may arise out of Arab
miscalculation that it can
destroy Israel, but appealed
to the delegates to "become
part of us by coming to live
with us, by giving your chil-
dren a more intensive Jewish
education so they will know
what it means to be Jews,
and helps by telling the saga
of Israel's struggle for liber-

Dialect of Sephardim

Ladino or Judeo-Spanish is
the spoken and written His-
panic language of Jews of
Spanish origin. But Ladino
did not originate as a Jewish
language in the 13th or 14th
century as some think, says
the authoritative Encyclope-
dia Judaica.
After the Spanish Expul-
sion of 1492 Ladino did, how-
ever, become a specifically
Jewish language. The Jews,
ejected from the Iberian Pen-
insula and thus cut off from
its language while this was
still in the process of evolu-
tion, preserved the Spanish
and Hispanic dialects that
had been spoken and written
before Cervantes and the
Golden Age, and which bas-
ically reflected the phonet-
ics, morphology, and syntax
of the 14th and 15th cen-
Distance from Spain, geo:
graphically even more than
chronologically, was one of
the most important factors in
the increasing divergence
between Ladino and Casti-
lian Spanish, the Encyclo-
pedia Judaica states. •
The efforts of certain pur-
ists over the last few-genera-
tions to restore the language
of Ladino have achieved no
material results. Ignoring the
differences in phonetics and
vocabulary between the so-
called "Oriental Ladino" and
"Western Ladino," one finds
that, between the 16th and
19th centuries, Ladino was a
Hispanic language which had
become petrified on the
threshold of the important
changes pending in the Iber-
ian Peninsula.
