Mrs. Shlomo Marenof Edits Book
Danny Raskin's `A Rabbinic Anthology' Reissued
by Jewish Publication Society
of Jewish 'Stories Round the Year'
Mrs. Martha Marenof, the
wife of Prof. Shlomo Marenof,
Dean of the Midrasha, College
of Jewish Studies of the United
Hebrew Schools, active in liter-
ary circles in her own right, is
the editor and translator of an
interesting compilation of Jew-
ish short stories.
Her "Stories Round the Year
—FrOm Rosh Hashanah to Sha-
vuot" has just been published
by Alden Press, Boston, and is
being distributed locally under
the imprint of Dot Publications,
20300 Murray Hill.
Mrs. Marenof culled her ma-
terial from ancient as well as
modern sources, from the Mid-
rash and the Maaseh Book, as
well as from East European
and Israeli writers.
Appearing for the first time
in an English translation is
"The Menorah and the Drei-
del," by Michael Deshe, popu-
lar Israeli author of children's
books, who now is an instruc-
tor in tire Midrasha.
While the stories are aimed
for children of 6 to 10, Mrs.
Marenof points out that they
have a "wide appeal." That be-
comes evident to the reader.
Older children will enjoy read-
ing the stories, and parents will
benefit from • reading them to
their youngsters. •
"The volume is intended as
a handbook for rabbis and
teachers in presenting both the
traditional Jewish festivals and
the American Jewish observ-
ances — Book Month, Music
Month, Hebrew Month," Mrs.
Her Hebrew Month selection
is Bialik's "Jonathan's Bible
Book." For Music Month she
selected a legend, "The Harp of
Galilee." Agnon's "My Grand-
father's Bible" is the Jewish
Book Month story.

JULIUS CHAJES, head music
man at the Jewish Community
Center, has always been careful
about giving rides to strangers
. . . but he had the feeling of
doing the right thing when he
picked up a nice looking gent
who asked for a ride on Curtis
near Livernois .. . The fellow
turned out to be Rabbi Morris
Greenes of Yeshivath Beth Ye-
hudah, and Chajes invited him
and Mrs. Greenes to be his
guests at the next Center Sym-
phony concert . . . A few days
later, Rabbi Greenes called to
say that his wife, who is the
musician of the family, raved so
about the Center symphony or-
chestra that he would like to
engage it for a performance ...
When Chajes explained that the
Center does not accept outside
engagements for its symphony
orchestra, Rabbi Greenes of-
fered to purchase 200 tickets
(all the Center can sell) for the
next concert . .. which he did
the next day by coming in with
a check and picking up the tick-
ets . . . Chajes has little con-
cern about tickets being sold for
the March 1 Jewish Music Festival
celebration concert ... they've
been going rapidly for this
event that will feature Paul 0-

olinist, and Lare Wardrop, En-
