Any schoolboy knows
that in 1492 Columbus
sailed the ocean blue . . . but
very few people appreciate
what a truly amazing year
it was in the annals of this
troubled globe.
History relates that 1492
saw the cruel expulsion of
over 200,000 Jews from
Spain as well as the dis-
covery of a New World by a
man who may have been of
Jewish origin. But the
scholars fail to tell of an-
other significant event that
took place during that fate-
ful year — namely that a
non-Jew decided to go to
"Hebrew school" as it were.
And indeed they should be-
cause this was one "enroll-
ment" which changed the
course of world history!
Johann Von Reuchlin,
the great German humanist
(1455-1522) who debated
the apostate Jew Pfeffer-
korn in the monumental
series which contributed
substantially to the Protes-
tant Reformation, was the
new Hebrew school "stu-
dent."
During a visit to Rome
in 1490, Reuchlin met the
Kabalist, Pico di Miran-
dola, who stimulated an
interest in Hebrew in
Reuchlin. Two years
later in Linz, Austria,
Reuchlin met the court
physician to the German
emperor Frederick III,
one Jacob ben Yechiel
Loans, who became his
first teacher in Hebrew
grammar.
So enamored of his
teacher was Reuchlin that
he lost little opportunity to
continue his Hebrew

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The immediate relief needs
in Lebanon "are largely
being met," but the long-
term rehabilitation of that
war-torn country will be
long and costly, M. Peter
McPherson, administrator
of the United States Agency
for International Develop-
ment (AID), said last week.
McPherson, who returned
Sept. 1. from a two-day visit
to Lebanon, told a press con-
ference that the immediate
need is for shelter for about
60,000 people before the fall
rains. He said that tents are
being purchased from
Pakistan partly with U.S.
funds.
While McPherson ac-
knowledged that there were
probably thousands of
others who have found shel-
ter with relatives, his fig-
ures point to the grossly
exaggerated reports early
in the Lebanon war that
some 60,000 were left home-
less.

The best remedy for our
discontent is to count our
mercies. By the time we
have reckoned up a part of
these, we shall be on our
knees praising the Lord for
His great mercy and love.

studies. On a later visit to
Rome (1497), he sat at the
feet of the illustrious
Obadia of Sforno from
whom he learned Talmud
and Kabala as well.
These studies led the
humanist to divide Jewish
literature into seven
classes, where he concluded
that the Talmud, the Zohar,
the commentaries of Rashi,
the Kimchis, Ibn Ezra, Ger-
sonides, Nachmanides and
others should not be burned
since they were not hereti-
cal and could be useful in
theology and science.
As a result of his opinion,
Emperor Maximilian re-
scinded his edict to destroy
all Jewish books in the year
1510. There now ensued a
raging battle between
Reuchlin and the
humanists on the one hand
and Pfefferkorn and the
clericals on the other which
led ultimately to the events
which shook European
Christianity and then the
world.
Although Reuchlin was

no great friend of the Jews
as a people, he was never-
theless a devotee and ad-
mirer of their literature. As
a result, his thoughts and
actions prevented dire con-
sequences for the continuity
of European Jewry and its
formula for survival as the
"People of the Book."
