Texas Jewish Post Thurs., Nov. 14, 1957
During the week beginning Nov. 17, the American Jewish
Congress is calling upon the American Jewish Community to
take inventory of the “unfinished business” of our democracy
and of our continuing obligations as Americans and as Jews.
Since our democracy and our Judaism are dynamic, living
processes, this inventory can never be complete: new prob-
lems arise every generation, every year, every day. But if we
were asked to highlight a few of the pressing, we would single
How shall we attain a fuller equality, in the North as well as
in the South, for all our citizens? How shall we best train and
utilize the brainpower of every American, regardless of his
race, religion or national origin? How shall we keep our public
schools free of the encroachments of sectarian religion? How
shall we fight bias aimed against American Jewish servicemen
and citizens by the Arab states? How, as Jews, can we best
promote a respect for our own heritage and advance the causes
of Jewish education, scholarship and culture? How can we help
to ease the tensions in the Middle East and to guide that area
toward peace, security and economic health? How can we save
the remnant of our people cut off by the Iron Curtain from all
^-communication with Jews in the free world?
The American Jewish Congress has anticipated these prob-
lems, and during the week of Nov. 17, its chapters and divis-
ions around the country will suggest action programs to deal
with them. Whether these are the only programs, or indeed,
even the “right” ones will have to be determined, of course,
by the individual American Jew. During “National AJCongress
week,” we would advocate searching consideration by the en-
tire Jewish community of all our unresolved issues. The list
of “unfinished business” is too long and too pressing to be post-
poned much longer.
THE BALFOUR DECLARATION
This month is the 40th anlniversary of the declaration made
famous by Lord Balfour on November 2, 1917 in appreciation
of Jewish contributions to the Allied War effort, especially
those of Dr. Chaim Weizman.
Though many of the Arabian countries received their inde-
pendence in the early 1920’s without great declaration it took
Palestine 30 years of blood, brawn and brains to create an in-
Regardless of the travail the journey was worth it. Jews are
used to working harder for the same things that others come by
equitably. It does credit to the memory of Lord Arthur James
Balfour, His Majesty’s Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs,
to have issued the following statement:
“His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establish-
ment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people,
and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement
of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be
done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of ex-
isting non—Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and
political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”
The result speaks for itself.
