'Jews, Judaism and American Constitution'

which could serve as one of
the most immensely inspi-
rational lessons in Ameri-
can and Jewish history. Dr.
Konvitz concludes with an
historic note:
"No man was more re-
sponsible for the success of

the Puritan political order
in New England than John
Winthrop, governor of the
Massachusetts Bay colony
and one of the most remark-
able men in our colonial his-
tory. In 1630, while aboard
the Arbella as it made its
way across the Atlantic,
Winthrop wrote, and prob-
ably delivered to his fellow
passengers, a sermon in
which he tried to tell his fel-
low passengers what it was
that they were trying to ac-
complish.

Amos, Winthrop said that
God speaks to those aboard
the sail-ship and says: 'You
only have I known of all the
families of the earth, there-
fore will I punish you for
your transgressions.'
Winthrop went on:

Thus stands the cause be-
tween God and us. We are
entered into a covenant with
him for this work. We have
taken out a commission. The
Lord hath given us leave to
draw our own articles .. .
Now if the Lord shall

may live; by obeying
his voyce, and
cleaving to him,
for he is our life, and
our prosperity.

Jews and the Constitu-
tional aspects, the Cove-
nant and the Oral Law, the
ideals perpetuated in the
Written Law — they com-
bine in analyses that lend
great significance to a pam-
phlet that is steeped in
scholarship. This is the
evaluation earned by the
pamphlet produced by the
American Jewish Archives.
