thing and toys became small
mountains as Israelis wel-
comed the frail adults and tiny
children who had come with
only the clothes on their backs.
There's another story, too.
it's being played out in the
ORT training schools and
Youth Aliyah villages, in ab-
sorption and community cen-
ters. where Ethiopian Jews
are demonstrating an insati-
able desire and capacity to
learn. With Israel's great need
for technicians and scientists,
that intellectual curiosity will
return ten-fold the high costs
Finally, in my imaginary
editor's search for good copy, I
see a remarkable story of sol-
idarity — a unity of purpose
that is unique to world Jewry.
Many admire that solidarity;
few understand it. -
In Operation Moses, we are
seeing a partnership born of a
special sense of history and an
acceptance of our responsibil-
ity as partners with the
Jewish People. in the absorp-
tion of the Ethiopian Jews in
Israel we have an opportunity
to show that solidarity to the
Ethiopian Jews have re-
minded us that we are truly
one — partners for life. Now,
there's a headline for you!
It should come as no surprise to
anyone to see the kind of letter in
The Jewish News of April 26,
written by a reader from Balti-
more. To him, memorials to the
victims of the Holocaust seem to
be an expression of misplaced ef-
forts and sentiments.
If we were to follow his advice,
we would find ourselves studying
Torah and embracing rabbinic
Judaism. I for one can empathize
with people of this kind; it must
indeed be very difficult to face
facts like the Holocaust and at the
same time, go to shul and recite
the El Molei Rahamim.
Our- generation, and I hope,
generations to come will re-
member the greatest tragedy that
befell all Jews and try to under-
stand the implications it entails.

I am just as confused today
about Rabbi Wine's God-less phi-
losophy (Jewish News, April 19)
as I was when I first heard it 20
years ago. Does he not feel the
spirit within his self, his soul?
Man is the only animal God has
given this higher consciousness,
this special awareness. I can't im-
agine arising in the morning and
not thanking God for the day He is
about to give me nor can I go to
sleep at night with out reflecting
on the good and the bad that had
just transpired. For this is life. It
is a gift from God.
I get mad at God. I yell at Him
and blame Him when things don't
go my way. Then I feel guilty for I
know, in reality, whatever hap-
pened was my fault, not His. He is
my creator. He demands perfec-
tion but understands my flaws.

We live in a marvelous country,
the United States of America:
Here we have the right to choose
the private school for our children
to get the best possible education
— one without prejudice or hate.
Marking, application forms with a
bagel because the children are
Jewish is shocking, to say the
least (Page 1, April 19).
Jewish parents, if you love your
children and if you want them to
grow up to be good, secure Ameri-
can citizens with an outstanding
education, send your children to
Hillel Day School, Yeshivah Beth
Yehudah, Akiva Day School or
any Jewish private school where
they will get a good education
with love and understanding,
without prejudice and hate.

He sits and waits for me to calm
down and then sends me a mercy
— a beautiful sun set, a warm
breeze, a flower, a bird singing
outside my window, and most of
all love . .
I listen to people state there is
no God and in my imagination I
see God sitting back and waiting,
just waiting, and then a tragedy
occurs. Suddenly God is needed.
He is begged for, cajoled, com-
promised with, and cursed. But
He is acknowledged. These
atheists are moved to the spirit of
God. For in blaming Him they are
accepting his very existence .. .
To espouse Judaism without
God is to simply establish a school
— a classroom of history and
Rabbi Wine is the instructor .. .
God is the same today as He was
yesterday and will be tomorrow.
He is the constant in our lives. He
is within us. To deny Him is to
deny our existence.
