tained by the daughter of Dr.
Leo M. Franklin. Hopefully
they will now be made avail-
able for a planned biography
of Rabbi Franklin. Once
again, Leonard N. Simons,
who has inspired publication
of the history of Detroit Jewry,
is the contact man with vision
who helps in the assembling of
the valuable data and who is
collaborating with Margaret
Fleischaker in her interest-
ingly planned tribute to her
father, who left an indelible
mark on Detroit's history.
With mementos like the
ones I have just shared with

Rabbi Franklin

our readers, as means of trac-
ing memory and fact in the
community's history, a rich
background is being recon-
structed. It must provide
enthusiasm for the celebrants
of the 60th anniversary of the
Detroit Jewish Welfare Fed-
eration.

In a larger sense, it is also
the emphasis on the lin,ks that
always bind Detroit Jewry
with its neighbors. Therefore,
a Jewish chapter in the his-
tory of Detroit is a glorifica-
tion of the totality of Detroit
itself.

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Kamza be put to death
to prevent him from in-
forming the emperor,
Zechariah b. Avkilus ob-
jected, maintaining that
"people will think that
the penalty for inflicting
a blemish on sacrificial
animals is death."
There may well be a
grain of historical truth
in this legend. Josephus
states that Eleazar, son
of Hananiah the high
priest, and a leader of
zealots, sought to
abolish sacrifices of
non-Jews in the Temple,
and maintains that this
was the signal for the
outbreak of the Roman
War, since it meant the
abolition of daily sac-
rifice for the emperor
(Wars, 2:409ff.), con-
stituting an act of rebel-
lion. In the story one
can detect an echo of
the factional dissensions
that ravaged Jerusalem
in the years preceding
the destruction of the --
Temple. It should be
associated with similar
popular sayings from
talmudic literature, e.g.,

"Why was the Second
Temple destroyed ...?
Because of baseless
hatred" (Yoma 9b).
Some scholars see a
resemblance between
the name Kamza and
Bar-Kamza and the
name Compsus b. Com-
psus•mentioned by
Josephus (Life, 33).
Compsus was a member
of the aristocratic party
in Tiberias and among
the supporters of the
Romans. Support for the
theory is found in the
fact that the legend is
attributed to Johanan
who taught in Tiberias,
which might well have
been the scene of the
story.
It will be noted that the
narrator of this version of
the Kamza, Bar-Kamza
story expresses the view
that it has reality, that it
may well be based on fact.
The lesson is clear. It is
for all times. Where there
is divisiveness the people
may perish. Let the ills be
cured and repetition of the
destructive in Jewish life
always be avoided.
