To the Editor, Jewish Daily Bulletin:

I am amazed at Rabbi Silver’s article that appeared in your issue of November 18. Surely Dr. Silver cannot mean to say that a generation cut off from first-hand knowledge of Jewish religious literature will yet be inspired by Jewish religious values.

The bureaus of Jewish education throughout the country are making a valiant effort to stem the tide of am-haaratzut that threatens to engulf American Jewry; and in these times, when the whole basis of Jewish education is being undermined by assimilatory forces of various hues, their prestige ought by all means to be strengthened rather than weakened.

PRAISE FOR UNTERMYER

To the Editor, Jewish Daily Bulletin:

At a time when most men are thinking of the fireside and comfort, Samuel Untermyer has taken up cudgels to fight intolerance and bigotry. His efforts to form an economic iron ring around Nazi-land are untiring. The man has the stamina of giants. He has lectured throughout the country on flying tours and given unstintingly of his valuable time to the cause of the boycott. And now in London, as the moving spirit of the International Boycott Convention, he is carrying on the glorious work. May God grant him good health and strength to carry on.

Truly he is a Son of Israel.

WANTS ‘LOW DOWN’

To the Editor, Jewish Daily Bulletin:

I thank Mr. A. Sachs for his “verbal cheese;” it inspires me to write a line. Ziff is O.K. but he is shooting wild. More to the point are Smolar’s articles, but it is time we got the low-down.

I read that Palestine is full of money and that it sent a big contribution to the Viennese Socialists. If those are facts, why all these collections?

If you want to render a service, let us have the inside track of all these “fifty-fifties” or “sixty-forties” who settle these matters.
