Sammy Davis Attends Services With Arson-Struck Congregation

WEST HARTFORD,
Conn. (JTA) — Sammy
Davis, Jr., the noted screen,
stage and TV star, attended
a prayer service last week at
the arson-struck Young Is-
rael Synagogue in a show of
support for the Jewish
community here.
Davis, who was in the
area for the Sammy Davis,
Jr. Greater Hartford Open
Golf Tournament, said at
the service, which was held

in the basement of the
synagogue because the
prayer hall was destroyed in
a' fire, "I share your grief
and your sorrow. When I
saw the destruction that the
fire did to your synagogue,
my Jewish heart wept as all
of us are now weeping.
"I tell you from the bot-
tom of my heart that they
can burn our synagogues,
they can set fire to our To-
rah, they can torch our holy

books — but they can never
destroy our spirit."
Davis, who converted
to Judaism some 30 years
ago, added that he was
heartened "by the out-
pouring of sympathy and
understanding shown by
the Greater Hartford
Christian community"
after the attacks on
Jewish targets. "We must
respond to this challenge
as one people united in

their determination that
our spirit is still strong
and vibrant," he said.
Davis said that when he
accepted Judaism "I did so
because I wanted to be part
of that strong and steadfast
tradition that withstood
and overcame thousand of
years of bigotry and perse-
cution. I assure you that
this persecution, too, shall
pass. We will rebuild this
synagogue and we shall
glory in the light that it will
radiate for all our Jewish
brethren and for all people
everywhere."
The fire that hit Young
Israel Synagogue Aug. 10
destroyed the building's
main halls and many reli-
gious articles and prayer
books.
On Aug. 15, a suspicious
fire also hit Temple
Emanuel, a Conservative
congregation. The main
damage was to the small
sanctuary but some Torah
