Lehman, Dr. Albert Einstein, Dr. John Haynes Holmes, and Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt head the list of notables on the National Committee of Sponsors for the celebration of Dr. Stephen S. Wise's seventy-fifth birthday in March. Prominent persons from all walks of life, as well us organizations, Jewish and non-Jewish, in which Dr. Wise has been active, are sponsoring a diamond jubilee dinner to honour Dr. Wise on Sunday, March 20, at the Hotel Biltmore, in New York. In an interview in his study in the Synagogue House of the Free Synagogue, Dr. Wise said: "I was born in Budapest, the birthplace of Max Nordau and Theotlor Herzl, on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1874. Possibly I acquired at birth my innate love for Zion and my lifelong career as a fighter. I came from a fighting family of rabbis. My grandfather fought for Hungary's freedom. My father fought at his father's side. I have battled throughout my life for many causes. First for Zionism, together with some of the great men of American Israel — men like Dr. Gustave Gotthcil, Prof. Richard Gottheil, Dr. H. P. Mendes and Justice Louis D. Brandeis, that great Jew and one of the greaU»si—Americans. "My second battle has been for the Jewish people through the American and World Jewish Congress, for the millions of Jews everywhere who could never become rebuilders of Palestine. They required protection, the only protection Jews ought ever ask, viz., equal political rights. Together with Justice Brandeis, Judge Julian W. Mack, Justice Felix Frankfurter, Nathan Straus, Louis Lipsky, Pin-cus Ruttenberg and others, we founded the American Jewish Congress movement. .It was largely a protest against the undemocratic management of American Jewish affairs. With Justice Brandeis first as our visible and later our invisible leader, we insisted that American Jews regardless of their geographical origin or economic status were intelligent enough to manage their community affairs and not have them managed for them by well-meaning, generous philanthropists. "Then followed the World Jewish Congress in 1936, which I helped organize with the aid of some of the most distinguished Jews of European lands. Among them was Dr. Nahura Goldmann, a brilliant statesman. The World Jewish Congress has endeavored to safeguard the rights of every minority so that the rights of Jews may not be suffered to become inferior. We who seek to safeguard our minority rights must be prepared to battle for protection of any minorities. "In the course of more than fifty years of service, I have also been privileged to found the Free Synagogue and the Jewish Institute of Religion, the latter now merged MARRIAGES with the Hebrew Union College, as one of the outstanding schools for the training of men for the rabbinate.. The distinction of this theological seminary is that both faculty and students are free, not committed in advance to a particular form of doctrinal loyalty. "But my abiding interest is the Free Synagogue. I have made its inspiration my starting point rather than its work my goal. A synagogue is not an end in itself. It is a means of service divine and service human, above all, such service as brings men nearer to each other within the bonds of undoc-trinal fellowship." With respect to the future, Dr. Wise declared: "I have four basic hopes. One is for a peaceful world in which justice will reign for all peoples and faiths and races. Secondly, I wish my country ^o become more completely and triumphantly a democracy, a land in which every religious Kr°up and race shall be wholly free to make its own ethical, spiritual, educational, artistic contribution to the treasure store of American life. America belongs to all its people; all its people must enrich and ennoble it." "Third, I wish the Free Synagogue to reassert the democratic ideal of Israel, to democratize anew in its new building, which I pray will be completed soon and in my lifetime, the spirit and form of the present-day Synagogue. The pioneer inspirations of the Free Synagogue must be kept alive — freedom of the pulpit, freedom of the p*w, and, lastly, that, prophetic freedom and development which aimed at social justice, including social service, clean and wholesome city, state, national and international government. "Fourth, for my people, I wish to see men and women of good will in every Christian Church in the world, Protestant and Catholic, come to recognize that it is not only un-Christian but indecent to treat Jews as they have been dealt with throughout many centuries. I also wish to see my people putting away the timidity with which they have been too long afflicted. I see them not only free but using that freedom to right wrong wherever inflicted or threatened, free as a people in their own land of Israel and free from assault in other lands upon the right of Jews to live as man with men." The diamond jubilee dinner in celebration of Dr. Wise's birthday will be presided over by Henry Morgenthau, Jr., and among the prominent speakers will be U. S. Supreme Court Justice William 0. Douglas, Bishop G. Bromley Ox-nam, Dr. John Haynes Holmes, and Hon. Eliahu Epstein, the latter representing the new State of Israel. Representatives of many congregations will attend, as well as those from national bodies served by Dr. Wise during his more than fifty years of service to Jewry and the nation.
