N. Y. Groups Ask Sunday Law Exemptions
The calendar on the wall reminds us that when our next issue
appears, Labor Day wall have passed in observance and regret
by millions of Americans trekking back to schools, to factories,
Shops and to mundane chores that seemingly are a mockery of
the radiance that is the season’s fading treasure.
Going back to work is a wholesome business, but hardly one
that conjures intoxicating thoughts. For pure joy we can think
of other prescriptions.

Labor day for you-and most- is a reminder of an admonition
of a season that is ending, of a cycle that is beginning.
But to us it is just another day on the calendar, perhaps not as
mundane as an ordinary Monday but nothing special. Our presses
are stopped neither by heat nor cold and we must cogitate to fill
this space under all conditions of weather and in all seasons of
the year. At times the climate is merciful to us, but only when
the heat of tzores is not upon our people somewhere in the world.
More often than not however there is always a disturbing develop-
ment for us on the map of the world.
What we mean to say of course is that our work goes on un-
interruptedly, summer and winter, in rain and in sunshine in
quietude and in disturbance. Withal, we admit, in all humilty,
that this is a Labor Day we love.
Otherwise, in the face of all the adversities that befall the
continued and uninterrupted publication of an English-Jewish
newspaper, who would be mashoogah enough to undertake and
continue the task.
But, you see, dear readers, it is truly a Labor of Love.
And Labor in itself is a belssing.
We salute the myraids of Americans who are going back to
work and learning now that the vacationing season is over. A peo-
ple that works will not be outdistanced.
So, may your blessings be continued as we pause to celebrate
this great day.
And, in order to insure that perpetuation for as long as possible
—may we offer this suggestion: DRIVE SAFELY!

baseball game followed by a

Marvin Karpatkin, co-chair-
man, Commission on Law and
Social Action of the American
Jewish Congress Metropolitan
Council, told the advisory com-
mittee that the New York state
closing law imposed “discrim-
inatory economic hardship and
burdens of the religious obser-
vance of persons keeping a Sab-
bath other than Sunday.” He no-
ted that a least 12 states provide
exemptions for persons like Se-
venth Day Adventists and Orth-
odox Jews, “who, in good faith,
icloise their businesses to ob-
serve a different day as the
“The State of New York,
which has the largest popula-
tion of Sabbath observers in
the United States, and where
the burdensome impact of Sun-
day laws is greatest, can do no
less,” he pleaded.
The committee also heard a
statement from a Jewish mer-
chant. Charles Pam, who said
he was scheduled to appear short-
ly before Magistrates Court
in Brooklyn for the third time
on charges of violating the Sun-
day closing law ‘in spite of the
fact that I am a strict Sabbath
observer, a member of the Jew-
ish faith and that my place of
business, a small grocery store
in Brooklyn, is strictly closed
from sundown Friday night un-
til Sunday morning.”
