Herbert H. Schiff, president of the United Jewish Fund and Coun¬ cil, has expressed praise and ap¬ preciation of the efforts of the 1963 ¦campaign organization. "All of the hundreds ot men, women, young adults and young people involved in the Campaign helped contribute to its success. Without their help, we could not have accomplished our objectives, and the needs of our community, local, as ^yeIl as na¬ tional and in Israel, could not have been met. 'THEIR DEDICATION and sin¬ cere efforts were reflected on every level of leadership, in every division of the Campaign organiza¬ tion, all the way to Herman Katz. general chairman, who carried the ultimate responsibility for the en¬ tire drive.

HELEN HIRSCH (Standard Feature Syndicate) Yom Kippur is the most sacred and holiest day of the year in the life of Jews everywhere. Its very name spells forth the fundamentals of Judaism, of religion and of the highest soul life of man. The holy Day of Atonement at¬ tempts to create a unique and spe¬ cial atmosphere pointing to the only good way of life, to live our ethical life in harmony with the God-given commandments; for the solemn day deals with right and wrong, with virtue and sin, a day when we set aside the trivialities of life and isolate ourselves to "walk on the path of righteousness for His name's sake" as King David said. "THUS SAITH the Lord" — al¬ most every chapter in the Bible begins wjth these forceful words. Yom Kippur creating a unique mood of holiness, makes us realize the low standards of our hectic life. Contrite are our proud hearts (in ^this day and we listen — far from the maddening crowds — So that we may heed the strident call of the shofar, which seems to herald Gold's voice on Mount Sinai: and we recall Micah's (6;8) admoni¬ tion: "What does the Lord require of thee? Only to do justice and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God." ' As clear as a mighty bell sounds with the greatest teaching of Yom Kippur; a man must prepare him¬ self for atonement and no mediator can do so for him. Virtue means victory by the individual himself over temptations that might assail him. No other man can fight the battle for him, nor can he win the victory for him. WANDERING on the devious labyrinthine paths of sin, the hu¬ man soul itself must try to forsake its Way of Sorrow and take the Way of Salvation. We realize here the most momentous fact in our religion that thouglj man cannot al¬ ways be master of his destiny, the Almighty, has placed the reins of his conduct in his hand. For God has appointed the Day of Atone¬ ment for life's spiritual renewal. The Holy Day In Talmud and Torah "When men stood before an earth¬ ly ruler" says the Jerusalem Tal¬ mud "to defend themselves against some charge, they appeared down¬ cast and dressed in black like mourners. But Israel appears be¬ fore the Lord oh the Day of Atone¬ ment in white, as if going to a festival, because he is confident that as soon as he retumeth peni- (contlnuad on paga 6) SEN.

THIRD ANNUAL TORAH ACADEMY EVENING TO BE HELD NOV. 3 AT DESHLER-HILTON On Sunday, Nov. 3, the Grand Ball»oom of the Deshler- Hilton Hotel will be the scene of the third annual Columbus Torah Academy Evening. This occasion will provide the friends of Torah Academy with an evening of entertainment and en¬ lightenment. Details concerning the program will soon be made available to the Columbus Jewish community. On Tuesday, Sept. 3, the corridors of the school building at 2565 E. Broad St. rang with the voices of 135. Torah Academy stu¬ dents who had come to school after summer vacation. AMONG THE children were sixth graders, who had been students at the Academy since it first opened its doors in 1958. There was a group of small kindegarteners, facing the prospect of going to school at last. And there were all the children of the intermediate grades, back in the environment in which so much learning flourished, to nourish their young minds. In the fall of 1958, the Academy staff consisted of a teacher of Eng¬ lish, a teacher of Hebrew, and 11 children, whose parents were de¬ voted to the idea of providing for them a quality general studies pro¬ gram combined with an intensive Hebrew studies program, all in a regular school day. TODAY, the Torah Academy has a staff of four Hebrew and seven general studies teachers, all highly qualified and experienced. It pro- UNTTED NATIONS, N.Y. (JTA) — President Kennedy, in his ad¬ dress before the United Nations General Assembly on Friday, in- lirectly accused the Soviet Union 1 violating the UN C3iarter by clos¬ ing down synagogues. Without men- 1 oning the Soviet Govemment by I une specifically, he stressed that lember states of the United Na- I ons "are committed by the Chart- ' I' to promote and respect human rights." He then added: "Those rights are not respected when a Buddhist priest is driven from his pagoda, when a synagogue is shut down, when a Protestant church cannot open a mission, when a Cardinal Is forced into hid¬ ing, or when a crowded church ser¬ vice is bombed. The United States of America is opposed to discrimi¬ nation and persecution on grounds of race and religion anywhere in the world, including our own na¬ tion," he emphasized. Through legislation and admini¬ strative action, through moral and legal commitment, he pointed out, the U.S. Govemment "has launch¬ ed a determined effort to rid our nation of discrimination which has existed far too long — in education, in housing, in transportation, in employment, in the Civil Service, in recreation and in places of pub¬ lic accommodation. And, therefore, in this or any other forum, we do not hesitate to condemn racial or religious injustice, whether com¬ mitted or permitted by friend or foe." (Widespread approval of Presi¬ dent's Kennedy's reference to the religious discrimination against So¬ viet Jewry in his United Nations address was expressed by the Is¬ raeli press which warned, however, that Israelis will have to undertake a more active policy, in this area to secure international support for a change in the,situation. The world will not understand President Ken¬ nedy's intervention, "if the Israel delegation does not express its own feelings about the plight of Soviet Jews," Haboker, General Zionist newspaper declared, reflecting the prevailing opinion in Israel.)

It offers a physical education and swimming program with the coop¬ eration of the staff of The Jewish Center. Its enrollment is oversub¬ scribed each year, so that waiting lists for entrance to future kinder¬ garten classes exist. Like all good things, quality edu¬ cation is expensive. Tuition^ees provide only a portion of the an¬ nual budget of the school, and many children are on scholarship. The budget of the school must be met through support of members of the community. The annual Tor¬ ah Academy Evening and Ad Book Campaign is one of the, major sources ot support for the school, and its success is vital to insure the continued operation of the school. , THE PRESIDENT of the Colum¬ bus Torah Academy is Harry Gil¬ bert.
