Einstein Players
Win Acclaim for
Yiddish Musical

Many plaudits and messages
of congratulations have been re-
ceived by Lou and Rosa Levin•
son, who recently directed the
play, "Dos Groise Gevins," pre-
sented May 3, at the Detroit.
Institute of Arts by the Einstein
Players. -
The group, which is comprised
of members of Albert Einstein
Chapter of Bnai Brith, is the
only Yiddish-speaking BB or-
ganization in Detroit and is com-
prised mostly of members who
survived the Nazi holocaust.
The play, presented entirely
in Yiddish, was- a musical, set to
a play by Sholem Aleichem and
offered in tribute to the 100th
anniversary of the birth of the
great Yiddish writer.
The efforts of all members of
the cast have been cited, with
special . acclaim haying been
given to Regina Gilbert, who
played the role of the poor tail-
or, which is filled with both
comedy and pathos, and Thelma
Isaacs, who portrayed the tail-
or's wife.
The original lyrics written by
the Levinsons, the musical ar-
rangements by • Sam Moss and
the choreography also were com-
mended.
In a letter of appreciation to
the Einstein Players, Morris
Garrison, president of Einstein
Lodge, wrote:
"It is hard to believe that this
group of women—graduates of
Hitler's "concentration camps=
have such exceptional talent. It
is also a fact that this group,
one of Bnai Brith's newest
chapters, brought with them the
culture, customs, language and
heritage that has long been dor-
mant among us.
"Who said that the Detroit
public does not welcome Yidd-
ish Theater? The long, standing
ovation proved that your darn
ing, non - professional group
brought dignity to the Jewish
theater and proved that our city
is hungry for a Yiddish word."
Many requests have been re-
ceived to present the play again,
and it is being planned to honor
those requests sometime in the
near future.

It costs less than
you'd think to
