Light Of Regeneration
Brightens The Future

RABBI A. IRVING SCHNIPPER SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

rise, shine; for thy light
is come and the glory of
the Lord is arisen over
thee. For see: darkness
covers the earth and gross dark-
ness the peoples, but on thee
glistens the Lord. His glory
appears upon thee (Isaiah 40:1-
2).
Piercing the intense gloom
of misfortune which envelopes
exiled Israel, the prophet dis-
cerns the rays of sunshine
which, with the advent of dawn,
are already guiding the tops of
Judea's mountains. All around
him is yet wrapped in the gloom
of night. Zion lies prostrate in
humiliation and sorrow ... But
the prophet bids her rise, for the
light of the regeneration is
coming, the light of freedom and
glory, the light of the glory of
God.
We are in the habit of main-
taining that Judaism is in a
most precarious position. There
are even prophets of doom who
prognosticate the dissolution of
Judaism in America. At best,
we satisfy ourselves with the
belief that we are doing our
utmost to preserve Jewish
consciousness for another
generation or so, fearing,
however, even to contemplate
the possibilities of the future.
Are there grounds for such
pessimistic fears? Alas, too
many. If only we had the
courage to face facts boldly and
recognize the danger that is
threatening us, we should be
bound to acknowledge the
precariousness of our spiritual
and moral issue. No ostrich-like
action on our part will
extenuate the danger.
What, then, is our hope? Is
there any hope at all? Yes, there
is. Much more than we are
aware of. Again, the voice of the
prophet is heard: Arise, shine;
for thy light is come, and thy
glory of the Lord is risen over
thee!" Dawn is breaking, and
the warm golden rays of the
sunshine of a Jewish regen-
eration are scattering the
darkness of despair that has
enveloped Israel.
The advent of a revival is
Jewry; a return to Jewish
consciousness can no more be
doubted; it has ceased to be a
dream; it is now a fact. The
words of Isaiah are being
fulfilled: "Lift thine eyes round
about, and see; they are all
gathered together, they come to

thee; thy sons come from afar,
and thy daughters brought
along in arms."
We are getting our young.
No more fear for the dying of
the withered and dried up
branches. New twigs, fresh
ones, full of sap and vitality, are
already taking their place.
A new generation is arising,
a generation that will surround
itself with a Jewish atmosphere,
that will assimilate the best of
American culture and make it
its own. This new life is coming
nearer and nearer. Its spirit is
irresistible. It will overpower

26:1-29-8

and overcome all obstacles. For
it is the spirit of God.
We may not be fully
perceptible. It may be slow in
coming. The number of its
forerunners may yet be small
and insignificant. But come it
must, and come it will. "A little
one shall become a thousand,
and a small one a strong
nation": "I, the Lord, will hasten
it in its time."



Beth El Plans
Judaism Class

Temple Beth El will offer a 15-
week seminar, "Introduction

converts, non-Jewish partners
of Jews and Jews seeking a
better understanding of
Judaism.
The class will be led by Rabbi
Julian I. Cook and will meet
Monday evenings, 8-9:30 p.m.
beginning Oct. 4 at the
Temple.
The course will focus on
Jewish practices, customs and
ceremonies; biblical founda-
tions, history, the basic beliefs
of the mainstream branches of
Judaism. Couples are
encouraged to take the seminar
together and will be charged a
single fee.

mation, call the rabbi's study,
