The GiTTs of Dawn
The propheTs oT doom are many. Their voices sound The lcnell
oT desTrucTion. ThroughouT long cenTuries ravaged by sTriTe and
conTlicTing passions, They have presaged The exTincTion oT hu-
Since The beginning oT his exisTence, man has been The un-
willing vicTim oT naTure's Torces, Torever baTTling The capricious
elemenTs which seelc To dominaTe and desTroy him. l-le has sTrug-
gled againsT oppressive environmenTs, and ToughT his Tellow man
in a ceaseless search Tor power and immorTaliTy, seeking To quench
The springs oT ambiTion ThaT Tlow in his soul. The greaTesT duel,
however, has been beTween man and The Torces wiThin himselT.
l-le has perpeTually soughT To rule over his will, To be masTer oT
his TaTe and auThor of his desTiny. These sTruggles are The essence
oT man, They are The signs oT ruin To The propheTs oT disasTer.
T-lumaniTy, however, has repudiaTed These Talse seers, Tor iT has
emerged TriumphanT Trom The baTTleTield oT liTe's eTernal wars.
The symbol oT man's sTruggles and his ulTimaTe vicTory is The
morning Dawn. The rising sun brings wiTh iT warmTh, lighT, and an
end To The darlcness oT The nighT: buT iT also carries wiThin iTs
shimmering rays a message To mankind-The Twin concepTs oT
creaTion and eTerniTy. Each day There is a new Dawn, a phenome-
non oT naTure, which, paradoxically, is as old as The world iTselT, and
which will conTinue To exisT unTil The end of ThaT universe. Man,
Too, represenTs This concepT. l-lumaniTy has Taced The same chal-
lenges and ToughT The same baTTles since The beginning oT Time.
The baTTles againsT naTure, Tellow man, and himselT have never
ceased nor Tailed To occupy men's ThoughTs or direcT Their acTions.

YeT, wiTh each new generaTion There arise new challenges To TesT
man's ingenuiTy and moral sTrengTh. The challenges oT The space
age, nuclear weapons, and Technology are characTerisTic oT a new
era unknown To mankind one hundred years ago: and The way we
meeT and conquer These challenges Today will inTluence The TuTure
Aurora, The rosy-hued Dawn, signiTies The end oT darkness
and The beginning oT a new day-a new liTe. This renewal oT lighT
each day is The promise oT Dawn and causes "hope To spring
eTernal in The human breasT." lT is This hope, This TaiTh, This giTT oT
Dawn-G-d's creaTion-ThaT is man's salvaTion. ThaT and man's
indomiTable will To survive are why humaniTy exisTs Today, despiTe
The obsTacles and sTruggles ThaT seek To vanquish iT.
WhaT is True oT all mankind is, perhaps, even more True oT The
Jew. l-le has had To sTruggle againsT The inTolerance oT man and
The persecuTion oT naTions. l-le has wiTnessed The enslavemenT, The
exile, and The genocide oT his people: buT, because oT his deep
and imperishable belieT in G-d and l-lis Torah, he has emerged
TriumphanT, wiTh digniTy and greaTness. Judaism, Too, embraces
The concepTs oT birTh and eTerniTy. WiTh each generaTion our
ancienT religion is imbued wiTh new liTe-in a sense, given a new
Dawn. YeT, The original spiriT and meaning oT Judaism remains To
guide us Through TuTure decades.
Love oT G-d and man is The heriTage oT The Jewish people.
lT is a heriTage ThaT we The graduaTes oT T962 are proud To bear
ai we ioin our people and all mankind in The endless sTruggles
o Li e.
