Judge Stern Named to Head Jewish
Publication Society; Succeeds Wolf

ciety's earlier publications into
the mass market at substantial-
ly reduced prices.
Justice Horace Stern is at
present serving as counsel to
the law firm of Wolf, Block,
Schorr and Solis-Cohen. He is
also serving as chairman of the
board of Dropsie College, and is
a trustee of the University of
Pennsylvania. Previously, he
was Chief Justice of the Su-
preme Court of the Coinmon-
wealth of Pennsylvania.

Edwin Wolf, 2nd, scholar,
bibliophile and historian and,
for the past five years presi-
dent of the Jewish Publication
Society of America, resigned
last week from the JPS presi-
dency and was succeeded by
Justice Horace Stern, who, for
the past 48 years, was a vice
president of the society.
Wolf's action was prompted
by his election to the presiden-
cy of the Federation of Jewish
Agencies of Greater Philadel-
phia. He was immediately
elected to serve as a JPS vice
president.
Justice Stern will serve as
acting president until the next

meeting of the board of- trus-
tees, when a president will be
elected to serve until the '72nd
annual meeting in May, 1960.
Wolf has had a life-long as-
sociation with JPS, since his
grandfather, Edwin Wolf, was
its president from 1903 to 1913,
and his father, Morris Wolf,
served as a trustee from 1926
to 1934. He became a trustee
in 1935 and served until 1949
when he was elected as a vice
president. In 1954, he became
president and served until last
week.
During Wolf's term of office,
the JPS made notable gains in
its service to the cultural life
of the American Jewish com-
munity. It launched a number
of projects of great importance,
chief among which was the
Bible Fund, created to finance
the important re-translation of
the English version of the JPS
Bible, which project was initi-
ated during the adminstration
of Judge Louis E. Levinthal,
who was Wolf's predecessor in
office. Also, Wolf was instru
mental in launching the new
Covenant Books series which
provides good books for chi).-

Editor, The Jewish News:
We, the undersigned mem-
bers of the Hebrew High School
class of the • United Hebrew
Schools, in which we discuss
Jewish problems, considered
carefully and in a very unbiased
manner, the decision of the Jew-
ish Community Center to keep
the institution open for certain
activities on the Sabbath. We
weighed and measured the ad-
vantages and--- disadvantages of
keeping it open or closed. After
a lengthy and interesting dis-
cussion, we came to the follow-
ing conclusion: .
Any seeming advantage which
results from the desecration of
the Holy Sabbath Day is a dis-
advantage and not an advan-
tage, unless the life of an in-
dividual or group is in grave
danger. No such condition
exists in this case.'
The Jewish Community Cen-
ter is a public institution and
as such it must respect the Holy
Sabbath which has helped pre-
serve our people throughout
ages of persecution and afflic-
tion; -
Respectfully yours,

Burns, commander, of the UN
Emergency Force, on a visit at
UN headquarters last week,
said that the situation along
the Israel-Egypt border is
"static," with fields being work-
ed by Israelis and by Egyptians
"right up to the border." But
he cautioned that "in that part
of the world, you never know
when the wind is going to
change."

and an easing in world tensions
might mean "the beginning of
a new era of Jewish culture"
for Soviet Jewry, Dr. Maurice
L. Perlzweig, director of the
World Jewish Congress depart-
ment of international affairs,
said in a Sabbath Eve address
in the Stephen Wise Free Syna-
gogue. He expressed the view
that "the relaxation of tensions
in the , international field has
already revived hope for a re-
awakening of Jewish culture in
the Soviet Union."
On the centenary of the fa-
mous Yiddish writer, Sholem
Aleichem, a small printing of
selections from his works in
Yiddish had been published in
the Soviet Union. This was the
first such publication in ten
years. It had now been an-
nounced, Dr. Perlzweig said,
that editions of the writings of
two additional Yiddish authors
would be published in the near
future.
