More and more Jews joined the forces of the Maccabees, for victory engenders enthusiasm and faith. The enemy, with vast resources, mounted heavy attacks against the Jews. But in the end. the Jews won. And with their victories freedom itself was unshackled. It is, at this stage of the story, unimportant that the events took place so long ago. What remains with us is the image of a band of brave men making a critical choice. They elected to die for freedom. They died, some of them. But enough survived to bring freedom' to their people. This, of course, is what makes the Chanukah story a great one and impresses upon us that any time men decide to fight for their freedom is a time for greatness. Notice how this Chanukah story is not out of date, how we can change a word here or there, make a few geographic changes, a handful of alterations in names and we are set in our own time. Thus, Chanukah is timeless and Judah Maccabee, his father, his brothers and his followers symbolize all men who are ready to take up arms for liberty. Unhappily, the necessity always exists, [or freedom is never completely with us. The Jews in Israel. like citizens in other lands at the present, are ready to do battle for their freedom. And, whether they are aware of it or not, they are emulat- ing the Maccabees of old, whose exploits, dreams and ambitions we mark during the holiday of Chanukah.

JWV Efforts Bear Fruit in Campaign Against Embargoes The campaign against the Brown and Williamson Tobacco Company and its parent com- pany, the British American To- bacco Company, which lasted five years, was finally brought 1.o a successful conclusion with the announcement by the com- panies that normal trade rela- tions with Israel would be re- ]sumed. Brown and Williamson will ship not only products manufactured for domestic sale but- those cigarettes formerly barred for export in behalf of the British American Tobacco Company. The Jewish Veterans played a prominent part in the five- year campaign and assumed an important role in the events which led to the reversal in policy by Brown and William- son. The increased tempo of JWV pressures since the recent National Convention, high- lighted by a substantial distri- bution of the revised White P.a- per, "Smokescreen o Coward- ice and Deceit," brought added connnunity support to JWV's position. Other organizations took up the cudgel in JWV's suppor!. JWVs effectiveness in this campaign is best reflected in the announcement which Brown and Williamson sent to all of its customers announcing its change of policy. In its actions to assure these customers that heads of Jewish organizations had been informed of the com- pany's plan to reverse its policy, JWV was the only organization singled out for special mention.

They are aware of the needs of the Hillel Foun- dations on the college campuses, of the tireless efforts of the ADL in combating bigotry, of the vast program of AZA and BBG, and of the many other services per- formed by the Order. But it is equally important for one to know of the direct personal ad- vantages of being a B'nai B'rith member. I am, therefore, discuss- ing these now so that we may take better advantage of these benefits, and may use them as an impetus for bi'ingmg new members into the Lodge. The Lodge has a blood bank pool that makes blood available in time of an emergency to B'nai B'rith members or their families. Although we never know when the need may arise, we are as- sured, as members, of this aid. Tim new B'nai B'rith life in- surance program, which is dis- cussed elsewhere in this issue of the Transcript, has been estab- lished so that the membership can ob Lain tim maximum amount of coverage for the least anaount of money. This program is highly recommended by insurance au- thorities. Our Lodge insurance liaison man, Sam Haleva, is available for any further in- qmries. The B'nai B'rith publications help keep the membership well I informed on current Jewish af-[ fairs, and also aims to retain the[ intellectual interest of its mere- I bers. The excellent quarterly I magazine, "The Heritage," the "Jewish Monthly" and the "ADL Bulletin" all aid in aqc.on3plish- mg this end. In addition the Adult Jewish Education Com- mittee sessions and the Institute of Judaism are held regularly throughout the country, directly benefiting the individual mem- bers. Our Sunshine Committee vis- its those that must be hospital- ized during illness, and not only brings cheer but brings needed articles to these patients., The Lodge Officers stand ready to participate in the funerals of those brethren who pass away, or to aid in may other manner at the time of bereavement.
