A DAVID ROSENMAN'S

A ALTO

AN ■ PURCHASIEIRS

to teachers and parents.
The Hollander book is well
illustrated by Martin
Lemelman.
There is a deeply moving
scriptural episode in these Bi-
ble narratives by Betty
Hollander. It is applicable to
the reply by Jews to the arson
that is destroying millions of
trees in Israel. Dedicated
Jews are sending forth word
that many more trees will be
planted to replace the burned
JNF forests.
In "Jeremiah Buys a Field,"
the King Zedekiah is inform-
ed that Jeremiah bought land
in Jerusalem after prophesy-
ing that the city would be
destroyed by the Babylonians.
In anger the king invited
Jeremiah to provide an ex-
planation for inconsistency.
The narrated account recall-
ing the historic incident is
thus provided:

"What do you mean?"
said Zedekiah. "What do
you mean by buying a field
now, when the Babylo-
nians are all around us?
The Babylonians will con-
quer us. You said so
yourself. What will you do
with your field then?"
"The Babylonians will
conquer us," said
Jeremiah. "They will burn
our land. They will take us
away from our homes. We
will not live in Jerusalem
anymore. But after a while
the people will change
their ways. They will
remember God again. God
will remember them. They
will return to this land.
God will bring them back
to this land and back to
their lovely Jerusalem. I
bought a field to teach
them this lesson. God may
punish us, but God will not
forget us. God will not
forget us if we remember
God."
Zedekiah began to cry.
"Oh, Jeremiah, I don't
want to be punished. If on-
ly we had listened. If only
we had listened to the
word of God:' But did
Zedekiah pray to Adonia?
Oh, no. He went right on
strengthening the city.
"Jeremiah may be clever,"
said Zedekiah, but
Nebuchadnezzar may not
understand the word of
God. We shall need soldiers
and weapons to save
Jerusalem."
