Bais Yaakov Journal Issue 133 (1936)

  • An article by Eliezer Gershon Friedensohn reacting to current events calls once again for immigrating to the Land of Israel and reports on the tenth anniversary of Bnos, with 300 Bnos chapters
  • Dr. Shlomo Birnbaum’s “Loshn Koydesh and Hebrew” speaks of the new modern Hebrew and the effect of nationalism on the language, arguing that, although all variations are called Hebrew, someone who can read the Bible can’t necessarily read Maimonides, and someone who read Zionist thinkers can’t necessarily read the Mishne. Another argument against the new Hebrew is the unrealistic expectation that everyone will speak with the same accent; Birnbaum is against Ashkenazi Jews abandoning their traditional pronunciation of Hebrew
  • Yehuda Leib Orlean’s essay rails against assimilation and calls on Jews to repent; as the case of Germany shows, assimilation failed European Jews, and the only solution is to return to traditional Judaism

Shakhnovich, “The Way Home: A Report on Life in Germany Today”, tells the story of a family of assimilated German Jews, one of whose sons decides to reclaim his Jewish name and immigrate to the Land of Israel (continued in issues 133-140 and 145)
