Es ist klar, dass solche Gedanken nur bei denjenigen Juden auftauchen konnten, die aus dem nsten kamen, wo ihnen noch die Möglichkeit geboten war, ihr Wissen aus dem Urquell jüdischer Lehre zu bereichern, die von des Gedankens Blässe des jüdischen Westens noch nicht angekränkelt waren. So ist es denn kein Wunder, dass gerade in Bielitz, wo sich der "Osten" und "Westen" begegneten, es zunächst die "östler" waren, auf die der Zionismus mit seinen logischen Konsequenzen einwirken musste - und dass sie die ersten Apostel dieser Idee wurden. Und so waren es junge Juden, aus dem Osten, die die Gründung der Studentenverbindungen: "Hasmonäa", "Chewrussa", und "Emunah" beeinflussten ...

    ... Even today friends of mine who lived near us, tell me how they used to stand in- the yard be-hind our windows, listening to the music. We all joined in the choir and my brothers were very good singers. As for the girls, though they were gene-rally not permitted to sing with the boys, Father, for all his devoutness, had nothing against it. It was a habit of Father’s to bless the boys on the eve of Yom Kippur by laying his hands on their heads. He would then turn to the girls and bless them as well.
