Dear Reader: I
Throughout the years of Talmudical Academy's existence, the Elchanite has shone forth as
the crowning achievement of each senior class. It has been the final contribution of the many classes
who worked and joked together through four long year of high school. Into its contents has gone the
cream of T..-X. talent, and with each issue the steady progress of our school can be traced.
This term's yearbook has not succeeded because of some miracle of G-d. It has come through
because of the work and sweat put into it by"a few individuals, in' an all out effort to show the world
a real accomplishment. It has been my great privilege to ,have worked with-those persons who have
put their hearts and souls intothe task in an attmpt to make our yearbook a success. A
It is, therefore, that I take this opportunity to thank those who have rendered invaluable serv-
ice in the publication of our Elchanite: t T
ARTHUR ROSENBERG -
As Associate Editor, Artie lived the Elchanite day and night. His all-around versatility in
writing, layout, and proof reading made him indispensable to the success of our magazine.
SIDNEY SCHWARTZ 'Q ' ff '
Although he played a vital role in the financial life of the Elchanite, Sid has proven himself
equally capable with his literary contributions. E
CARL ROSENBERG ' y '
Prothonotary. The dictionary meaning is chief clerk. Besides the lOl other things Carl did, this
word best describes his invaluable service. - 4 ,, ,
ALBERT MORGENSTERN A
To him we are indebted for making this Elchanite an artistic accomplishment. His magnificent
artwork can readily be seen on the cover and throughout all the book.
MISS ANNA LEDERMAN
XYe are deeply grateful for her generosity in donating time and effort to the typing of the
Elchanite. It can be truthfully said that without her aid we could not have goneito press.
MR. EMANUEL LEIBEL f A '
In his capacity as Senior Faculty advisor, Mr. Leibel has made available toiius his wise
counsel behind which there lies many years of valuable experience.
On behalf of the entire staff, it is my earnest hope that you will enjoy reading the 1946

Since the beginning of time, the human race has been beset with the scourge of world conflict.
Though man has utilized his inventive genius to the full, his intellectual reasoning has not kept pace
with scientific ability. NVars, destructive and wasteful, have ravaged the earth in every generation.
Today we are confronted with a weapon against which there is no known defense, a weapon
that potentially has the power to destroy the earth. NVith the unleashing of the destructive powers of
the atom, we stand at a fork in the highway of life, that leads to wondrous prosperity or to oblivion.
It is therefore incumbent upon us, who have seen the results of the negligence and indifference
of the League of Nations, to institute a system of world control that will insure to our descendants
a world where the principles of the Atlantic Charter shall reign supreme.
The meetings of the United Nations herald a new era in the history of the world, an era when
man may at last realize the dream of lasting peace. A world government, conceived in liberty and
instituted for the sole purpose of maintaining world peace, is the only solution to the myriad prob-
lems that call for our attention at the present time. The prayers of a suffering world are for the
delegates to the United Nations' Organization, for only through world cooperation can we ever hope
to free the oppressed minorities from the chains of the tyrant's yoke.
There can be no denial of the sad fact that in Palestine, Greece and Indonesia there exists the
same type of dictatorial oppression as in the Axis nations during the war. Those who were willing
to sacrifice their very lives for the principles of democracy, are today being deprived of these same
principles for the benefit of imperialistic colonial expansion. It would be sheer hypocrisy to cry
"Liberty, equality and peace" and close our ears to the bitter groans of our dying people.
A world organization, a true United Nation's Qrganization, must have the power to avert
such heartless brutality. NVith a military arm placed at its disposal, equipped to rain atomic death
on any aggressor, no nation would dare to violate international law and brave the wrath of an
Now, more than at any other time in the past, education will play a leading role in the main-
tenance of the peace. The sense of brotherhood taught in schools, will, in the coming years, result
in better understanding and in the stabilization of international relationships. Education aind vigi-
ilance, hand in hand, will be the deciding factors in the attempt of mankind to settle international
disputes without war and strife, and will keep man on the road to peace. Force and knowledge
together form an invincible combinatoin that will truly, "proclaim liberty throughout the land and
unto all the inhabitants thereof."
It is to these principles, to international goodwill, to a forceful United Nations Organization
which alone can save mankind from the threat of war, to the disappearance of colonial exploitation
from the international scene, and to the ideology of peace, that this Elchanite is dedicated.

jo we graduafing add
O! I9 6
My dear friends :
You entered the Yeshiva at a time when the entire world was i11 flames, and you are
fortunate to graduate at a time when peace is fmally declared. But, you must bear in mind that
the Hebrew word for "peace" also means perfection, for we cannot experience a genuine sense
of peace unless we learn to become more perfect in our thinking, and in our ways of life. There
cannot be any inner peace unless we search for the improvement of our moral personalities.
As Yeshiva men, you have been instructed that peace and perfection can come only through
divine knowledge and Torah-living. Moreover, your secular learning must be in harmony with our
traditional philosophy of life. Wliatevei' you may be or do, in the future, you should remember
to abide by the mode of living and thinking as taught to you within the four walls of the Yeshiva.
I congratulate all of you, and may the Almighty guide your path.
