Of all the Jewish organization.'? in the city devoted to the rejuv¬ enation of the Holy. Land fate has chosen Junior Hadas.sah to be in the fortunate position to psreslde at the observance of this historic happening in Our home town. For months no-\v the Juniors have advertised a concert by P. S. Plnchllt, the world's foremost cantor, and wonder singer of the age. This great interpreter ot Jewish, song and prayer is sched¬ uled to appear on the same day as the Proclamation of the Re¬ demption of Zlon! To make the concert part- of an experience Ynore moving and exalting even than hearing a great artist at his best, the Jun¬ iors have decided to strive to have every Jewl.sh person In Co¬ lumbus present In one place to¬ morrow evening (Sunday) to hear Zion's Declaration of Inde¬ pendence proclaimed, and give thanks to the Almi^ty for His gracious goodness In restoring the Promised Land to His people again! To make this possible, the Jun¬ iors have decided to open wide to ali the people of the city the doors of the Bexley High School auditorium, where Can¬ tor Pincbik is to sing. Naturally the spen.sors, patrons, and those \ybo nave purchased tickets for the concert will be protected by having seats reserved for them. The Juniors feel that It is their holy duty to do what they can to have every Jewish adult In our midst participate in the ceremony of reading out of exist¬ ence the cruel nightmare of per¬ secution, degradation, and anni¬ hilation which has been our fot for 2000 years. U is an event of great weight and moment.

Such liberal giving and such fine Increases' in pledges should assuredly give 4nspira- tlon as well as provide a pow¬ erful stimulus to the ottier Jews of Columbus who, beginning next week, will be called upon to giv# to ttie UJF as they never have given before. These were the words spoken this week by Leo- Yassenoff, chairman for the '48 drive, whp stressed' the fact that only thru greatly incriCaged pledges of GDlumbus Jewry can this "Des¬ tiny Drive" go over the top with flying colors. Each and every one of us should follow the example of these early subscriptions, so that the Herculean projects of recon¬ struction and rehabllit^lon In Europe, and the. stupendous tasks of defense, bf ponstruc- tion, and of advancemerrtlri. Pal¬ estine can be achievecl' success¬ fully.

Now I wonder how so much hope, so mucfi life, so much courage can'be sustained on so 1 it tie. I feel privileged and hupable to be part of this over- I whelming program." When Herman Luekoff made Columbus his home some I'i years ago, little did he realize that he was as.sumlng -an equal responsibility In guiding the destinies of our Jew^ish com¬ munal life here. That he had accepted the obligation as an American and fa loyal Jew was proven hy e numerous liberal contribu¬ tions he made to every worth¬ while cause in this community, Jewish and non-Jewish. He has evidenced deep-rooted devotion to all worthy endeav¬ ors, his interest stemming both from memories of , his arrival here as an immigrant boy- who had to make his way up the ladder to success as well as from his anxiety to see Jewish suffering relieved and the home¬ less provided for.
