Semitism. Could he really
believe in the truth of their
version of history? The man
looked at me very sadly: "I'm
not a believer in their
religion!' he said, "but I do
believe in the inevitability of
atrocities, and what's more!'
he added, "given certain con-
ditions, I believe that one day
a second holocaust will come,
and when — not if — that day
arrives, I don't want my
children or grandchildren to
suffer the way I suffered. In a
few generations no one will be
able to trace the root of the
faith of my American Chris-
tian grandchildren."
Apparently this survivor, a
man who had lived through a
living hell, chose to be the
last Jew in his line. It was
clear that he did not believe
in a Jewish future. Whatever
faith he may once have had,
had been squeezed out of him
by suffering. What could I tell
him? Not having lived
through his experiences,
could I stand there and give
a moral discourse?
Perhaps the wonder is that
more people didn't turn out
like he did. It really wouldn't
have been so surprising if,
after World War II, the
Jewish people, broken and
tortured and diseased, would
have finally packed it in and
said "Enough! You may be
the Lord of the Universe, but
why should we be its histori-
cal victims? Why should our
blood flow into the waters of
the Vistula? Why should our
flesh fertilize the fields of
Auschwitz? Enough!"
But there is another re-
sponse equally as astonish-
ing. I once heard from my
rebbe, Rav Soloveichik, shlita,
a story about a refugee in a
DP camp after the war who
came upon a rabbi with his
five students. When it looked
like things couldn't get any
worse for the Jews, each of the
five students committed to
memory one of the Five Books
of Moses, so that if the worst
came to pass — the destruc-
tion of every Jewish book in
the world, God forbid — then
at least this rabbi and his five
students would be able to
reconstruct the Torah.
When the refugee gazed
upon the rabbi and his five
students — these living books
of Moses — he began to weep
and said that he would be
willing to die at that very in-
stant if only he could recap-
ture some of the faith of these
six Jews. And indeed, the
rebbe and his students later
went to Israel, arriving at a
kibbutz just two days before
Simchat Torah. In the midst
of the Hakafot, the dancing
with the Torah scrolls, the
most respected religious

leader of the kibbutz called
for silence. "Let us for the
next hakafah set down the
Torah scrolls and lift up the
'Ibrah students. Let us replace
the written Torah with the
living Torah, the five students
who express the eternity of
our faith, the eternity of our
people in this — our eternal
homeland!'
What would have happened
if the former husband of our
bride had been at this par-
ticular DP camp? Or had
spent Simchat Torah at that
particular religious kibbutz?
Would the story of these 'liv-
ing books of Moses' have in-
spired him to believe that the
faith of some Jews was so pro-
found that even if their writ-
ten legacy were completely
destroyed, they would sacri-
fice their very last breath in
order to save the central
pillar of the Jewish heart —
the Torah?

ren, Michigan, to place the
Passover order. After first ac-
cepting the order, came the
equivocations froth the
Raskin representative as to
the state of the order. I can on-
ly surmise that a Passover
order to 10-12 families was
too small to bother with.
With all the current media
articles decrying the shrink-
ing Jewish population, the
need to help outlying pockets
of Jews maintain the Judaism
seems not to have permeated
Jewish businesses, as ex-
emplified by Raskin and
Giant .. .

Liberation From
Armageddon

On the Sunday before
Passover our primarily
Jewish group from states
across the nation met and
held a Passover Seder. This
seder, with a special Hag-
gadah, took place in the
desert at the gates of the
Nevada nuclear test site, to
voice our protest against the
continuing nuclear testing
and buildup.
We believe that nuclear
weapons may destroy the
earth and civilization, by in-
tent, or provocation, or acci-
dent. We see nuclear arms as
the ultimate Pharoah .. .
We urge Jewish groups
throughout our nation to
voice their concerns about the
dangers of nuclear stockpil-
ing and support the call for a
comprehensive test ban.
