Our Mother Tongue, Yiddish

Editor, The Jewish News:
Just now we are celebrat-
ing the 80th anniversary of
the "Forverts," the last
daily Yiddish-language
newspaper in the U.S. In
New York City alone there
were once several Yiddish
newspapers.
Three generations of im-
migrants read these news-
papers. Grandparents and
even parents who read
their pages are gone now or
are very old.
In one of his recent lectur-
es in English, Yitzhak Bash-
evis Singer, a long-time
writer for the "Forverts"
as well as for the general
public of course, told the au-
dience that the "Forverts"
editor always addressed
him as "young man"! !
A sad little joke.
Before World War I,
Yiddish was spoken by
about 12 million Jews in sev-
eral countries of Eastern
and Central Europe, as well
as in other countries of the

Long ago
e spoke a mother tongue:
You• its words, its warm words
Hare grown cold
N1/4
And trailed away
Into silence ...

Those ancient sounds
From childhood's lore —
They are dreams,
They are nightmares,
They laughed.
They cried,
They whispered then awhile
'.4nd they were gone.

NEW YORK—President
Carter will meet today with
Herbert M. Ames, president
of the West Point Jewish
Chapel Fund, and other offi-
cers of the Chapel Fund.
Edgar M. Bronfman, who
serves as chairman of a
$5.5 million campaign to
build a chapel at the Mili-
tary Academy, will an-
nounce that the campaign
has entered its national
phase. To date, $900,000 has
been raised toward the con-
struction of a building that
will include a sanctuary
and a gallery-museum in
which decorations and
other items pertaining to
Jewish service in every
war fought by the United
States will be displayed.
Unlike Catholic and Prot-
estant cadets at the United
States Military Academy,
Jewish cadets have never
had a separate house of
worship.

It

the international Masonic
movement because of its
plans to hold a conference
in Israel this year. Mo-
hammed Mahgoub, commis-
sioner general of the Israel
Boycott Office, said the
Masons had defied repeated
warnings to hold the confer-
ence elsewhere.
The boycott conference
urged Arab nations to en-
force the ban and close Ma-
sonic branches.
Mahgoub also announced
the boycott Office has re.
moved 28 "internationa
firms of various nation-
alities" from its blacklist
Monday.
He did not release the
names of nationalities of
the firms, but implied that
a number were American.

Czech Cemeteries
Being Neglected

BUDAPEST (JTA)—
Czechoslovakian Chief
Rabbi Dr. Izidor Katz, ad-
dressing annual communal
meetings in Prague and
Bratislava, reported the ne-
glect of Jewish cemeteries
throughout the country.
"Almost nobody pays any
attention to our graves," he
said. Katz asked the com-
munities to take an active
part in preserving the ceme-
teries, some of which are
among Europe's oldest.

world, chief among the lat-
ter being the United States.
By the end of the war Hit-
ler's Nazis had murdered
about six million Jews,
most of them Yiddish-
speaking Polish, Russian or
Lithuanian Jews.
Once this major reservoir
of Yiddish was gone, the vi-
tality of the language was
further weakened by fac-
tors such as cultural assimi-
lation in the U.S., France,
England and other demo-
cratic countries as well as
by the renascence and offi-
cial position of Hebrew in
the reborn nation of Israel.
This last, one does not say
as a reproach but merely
as a statement of historical
fact.
For new-old Israel the
only possible language for
Jews from every country
and continent is Hebrew,
leshon ha-kodesh. But we
love the mame-loshen too,
the language of a millen-
nium of Jewish life in East-
em Europe . . .
So this poem is to the
mother tongue, to mame-
loshen, Yiddish.

WASHINGTON (JTA)—
President Carter is ex-
pected shortly to sign the
comprimise anti-boycott
bill, generally barring
American firms from com-
plying with the Arab boy-
cott against Israel, which
was approved by the House
last Friday.
Differing versions of the
measure, supported in prin-
ciple by President Carter,
were approved by the
House and Senate, and then
sent to a House-Senate con-
ference. The conference ver-
sion was approved by the
Senate by voice vote. The
final approval in the House
was 306-41.
The anti-boycott provi-
sions are part of a two-year
extension of the Export Ad-
ministration Act. With
some exemptions, the boy-
cott provisions ban Ameri-
can firms from refusing to
do business with a firm
black-listed by the Arabs
for trade with Israel.
Meanwhile, the Arab boy-
cott conference meeting in
Egypt, last Friday banned
