Sandy Konfax:
Dodger Pitcher
Fans 18 Giants

By HAROLD U. RIBALOW
He is a 6-foot-2-inch lefthand-
er who weighs 205 pounds. He's
been with the Dodgers (both
Brooklyn and Los Angeles) for
six years now. He has a dazzling
fast-ball and the Dodgers paid
him a $20,000 bonus to don
their uniform. He is one of the
few Jewish ball players in the
major leagues and for a couple
of seasons now it has seemed
he will burst forth into stardom.
But even in 1959, when the
Dodgers did so well, Sandy
Koufax has had a rather indif-
ferent year. And when readers
of this column asked why his
career had not been included
in the latest edition of my
book, "The Jew in American
Sports," I had to reply that he
had not yet arrived; that he
was on his way, perhaps, but
he was still struggling.
(Koufax was the starting_
pitcher for the Dodgers
against the Chicago White Sox
in the fifth game of the World
Series on Tuesday. While he
took the 1-0 loss, he pitched
a brilliant game before being
lifted for a pinch hitter).
But on the last day of August
of the 1959 baseball season,
Sandy Koufax got into the rec-
ord books.
It happened against t h e
Giants, naturally enough, when
pennant fever in San Francisco
and Los Angeles ran very high.
Koufax won, 5-2, but that was
the least of it. Sandy struck out
18 men, breaking Dizzy Dean's
mark of 17, set in 1933 and ty-
ing Bob Feller's major league
record made in 1938. When the
game was over, a Dodger coach,
Joe Becker, remarked, "For
sheer velocity, I think this fel-
low throws faster than Feller
did."
Oddly enough, it was the first
complete game Koufax ever
pitched against the Giants, and
it may be that the Giants, who
an unimpressive work-out with
rejected him years ago following
them, are now moaning the
blues because they let that left-
hander get away. Still, Sandy
comes up with such games ever
so often. Earlier the same sea-
son, he fanned 16 Phils in a
ball game and the fact that he
could do so well against the
Giants before a crowd of 82,794
in a key game, proved that the
man now had the necessary
poise to become consistent. In
his very next start, Sandy
fanned 10 more-but lost. It
only goes to show that you are
no better than your last per-
formance.

(In this article. the author,
spiritual leader of Temple
Emanuel in Grand Rapids,
Mich., and chairman of the
adult education committee of
the Central Conference of
American Rabbis, reviews the
first volume of a Great Book
Series undertaken by the
adult Jewish education pro-
gram of Bnai Brith.)
'1: * *
By Rabbi Harry Essrig
Unlike other faiths, Judaism
resulted from the creative forces
of the entire people. No single
individual or group of individ-
uals is enshrined above others.
No one great figure is indispens-
able in Judaism.
And yet we ought not lose
sight of the great personalities
who helped shape the course of
Jewish history, who left the
deep impact of their genius on
the centuries, and who gave
form and structure to our faith
and culture.
To help bring this aspect of
Jewish history into clearer per-
spective for the average adult
is the goal of the first volume
of the Bnai Brith Great Books
Series. "Great Jewish Personali-
ties in Ancient and Medieval
Times," edited by Dr. Simon
Noveck, Bnai Brith director of
adult Jewish education, treats
the life and thought of a dozen
great men from the time of
Moses through the Vilna Gaon.
The first of a five-volume
series, it will appear, early in
November (Farrar, Straus and
Cudahy; 368 pages, $4.95). The
entire kaleidoscope of 25 cen-
turies of Jewish experience is
illuminated by means of vivid
portraits of prophets, scribes,
sages, philosophers, poets and
mystics - all of whom helped
weave the tapestry of Judaism.
The book is divided into two
sections, beginning with the
classical age of Judaism and
concluding with the completion
of the Talmud in the fifth cen-
tury of the Common Era. Over
a stretch of 17 centuries, there
pass in review the commanding
figures of the prophetic age, the
Hellenistic and Rabbinic eras-
the men who gave wing to the
Jewish vision.
While the genius of our
people flowered in the land of
Israel, the Diaspora at all
times played a significant role.
Likewise, our faith did not
lead a cocoon existence, shel-
tered from the cultural and
spiritual forces of its en-
vironment.
As a lasting testimonial to
the resilience of Judaism, we
have the writings of Philo of
Alexandria, who preserved
Jewish values in a gentile
world. He blended the Jewish
and Greek traditions of thought
and withal remained a loyal
Jew.
The great classical era of
Judaism is climaxed with the
masterly compendium of the
Talmud, primarily the contribu-
tion of Babylonian Jewry. By
the end of the fifth century CE,
Judaism's foundations were
firmly laid. The Torah, the pro-
phetic writings, the Hellenistic
literature and the Talmud had
permanently established the
contours of our faith.
In the hands of Harry M.
Orlinsky, Mortimer J. Cohen,
Erwin R. Goodenough, Louis
Finkelstein and •other dis-
tinguished scholars, personal-
ities come to life, brimming
with vigor and vitality. The
essays are written in a popular,
non-technical style, and are
woven together by, means of
historical "bridges" or introduc-
tions, written by Dr. Noveck,
which continue the thread of
the narrative.
The second part of the vol-
ume is concerned with Jewish
heroes of the Middle Ages,
which for our people ex-

tended through the 18th cen-
tury. The area and scope of
activity now widen as the
Jewish people move beyond
the confines of the Oriental.
world. Babylonia and Spain,
France and Eastern Europe
provide the background for
achievements in poetry, phi-
losophy, mysticism, and other
aspects of Jewish learning.
-We are introduced to Saadia
Gaon, "the father of Jewish
philosophy"; the 11th century
teacher Rashi, to this day stud-
ies: and esteemed as the author
of the finest commentary on the
Bible and the Talmud; Judah
Halevi, the poet laureate of the
Golden Age of Spain; Maimon-
ides, the multi-faceted spiritual
leader who towered over all of
medieval Jewry and left a deep
imprint on the larger Christian
and Muslim worlds as well.
There also are Don Isaac Ab-
ravanel, scholar and statesman
during the calamities that de-
stroyed Spanish Jewry; and
East Europe's Vilna Gaon and
the Baal Shem Tov, at the op-
posite poles of religious experi-
ence, each seeking his o w n
unique style to restore balance
and strength to Jewish life.
This galaxy of spiritual giants,
their lives and thoughts are
dramatically presented by
Trude Weiss-Rosmarin, Samuel
M. Blumenfield, Jacob S. Min-
kin, Salo W. Baron, Louis I.
Newman and Meyer Waxman.
As in the first part of the
volume, the historical back-
ground is 'filled in so that the
achievements of individuals are
understood in proper context.
Four other volumes are sched-
uled for publication, the second
of which will appear in March,
1960. Volume two will deal with
12 great Jewish personalities of
modern times, and will be fol-
lowed by a book on nine modern -
Jewish thinkers, from A h a d
Ha'am to Martin Buber, with a
companion volume containing
an anthology of their writings,
plus introductory references
and explanatory notes. The
final text in the series will deal
with "Basic Beliefs of Judaism."
