In An Encyclopedia of Re-
ligion published by the
Philosophical Library, we
are provided the following
on secularism:

make that once more the
living source of Judaism.
That's how we attain dig-
nity and strength, in the Bet
HaMidrash, in our schooling
and intellectual pathways.

Specifically a variety of
utilitarian social ethic
(named and formulated by
G.J. Holyoake, 1817-1906)
which seeks human im-
provement without
reference to religion and
exclusively by means of
human reason, science and
social organization.
In general that move-
ment of protest against the
dominance and control of
human life by ec-
clesiastical bodies or by
religious faith and dogma
which had its new birth at
the Renaissance. It has
developed into a positive
and widely adopted
outlook which aims to
direct all activities and in-
stitutions by a non-
religious concern for the
goods of the present life
and for social well-being.
It is applied derogatively
by religionists to that
emancipation of all depart-
ments of life, science,
philosophy, art, economics
and politics, from central
religious control which
results in the fissiparous
pursuit of specialized in-
terests without any sense
of the unity of life and
which has initiated a crisis
in the religious and
cultural life of modern
man.
The Harwood-Cousens
letter demonstrated the real-
ism of secular sharing of
Jewish responsibilities.
Secularists always had
leadership in Jewish
movements and community
life. The children in secular
homes unquestionably have
a right in sharing Jewish
learning and schooling.
In consideration of learn-
ing, secularism and school-
ing, we must invite em-
phasis to the priority given
in Jewry to the school as the
Bet HaMidrash. We gather
our cultural as well as spiri-
tual strength as it is em-
bodied for us as a dominant
symbol in this definition by
Ahad HaAm (Asher
Ginsburg):
The heart of the Jewish
people has always been in
the Bet HaMidrash; there
was the source from which
they drew the strength and
the inspiration that enabl-
ed them to overcome all
difficulties and withstand
all persecutions.
If we want to go on living,
we must restore the center
to the Bet HaMidrash, and

Avraham Harman:
Emissary Of Dignity
Avraham Harman, who
died at 77 on Feb, 23, left
legacies that match the
giants in Jewish and Israeli
leadership. There was im-
pressive charm in his per-
sonality which inspired
those in our ranks who had
the privilege of laboring
with him from 1948, the
year of his first diplomatic
assignment to this country,
to recent days.
In the consular service, as
a leader in Zionism, and as
Israel's ambassador to the
U.S., he evidenced courage
that compelled adherence to
basic Jewish appeals.
He was truly the ambas-
sador to the Jewish people
with emphasis on American
Jewry. His wife, Zena Har-
m an , gained fame as
UNICEF chairwoman and
Israeli parliamentarian. His
daughter Naomi heads the
Truman Institute for the
Advancement of Peace at the
Hebrew University. From
Avraham Harman,
therefore, stems an entire
family unit that glorifies our
historic records.
To have had Avraham
Harman as leader and friend
since 1948 is to be grateful to
have been associated with
him and to have learned
from him. 0
