ll' is buf a year and a hall since 'rhe slari of The 'riranic srruggle
in which mighl, wirh all irs vigor and lusrful rurhlessness, is pilled againsi
righi, which fighis roday for The liberalion of enslaved Europe and lhe
redemprion of persecuied minorilies Throughoui rhe world. Yer, how
many of us are aware of rhe change which has come over American
Jewry since fha? fareful day early in ihe monrh of Seprember, I939?
The war has, wirhour doubr, placed an indelible impression upon our
menral malceups which is noi To be easily removed.
Few of us can lisien To a comedian paid 'ro make us laugh, wirh-
our giving ven'r To a sigh, on refleclring upon grim realilies. Few of
us can grab an evening paper and Turn direclly ro rhe sporrs secrion
io see Jrhe box score of fhe day's game wilhoul lirsi sipping from The
biHer cup of war news. Amusemenrs and recrealion no longer carry
rhe full weighr lhaf lhey were wonr +o possess, nor do rhey succeed
in bringing complefe relaxarion To our minds and bodies. lr is, fherelore,
nor slrange Thar rhis form of resllessness which invades our privale lives
has also affecied our srudy and worlc, and 'rhe producfs rhereof.
Wirh rhe whole srruclure of European Jewry Jroppling, coupled wirh
our heavy and irreplaceable losses, The passing of Dr. Bernard Revel
and' Rabbi Moses Soloveilchilr, our leaders of sainled memory, il is no
wonder 'rhaf we, s'ruden+s of Talmudical Academy, consciously or un-
consciously, acquire added burdens and carry loads of far grealer
