SatEvePost's Novak
Article Exposes
Ordeal of USSR Jews

RABBI B. H. GORRELICK

The current issue of the Sat-
urday Evening Post carries the
concluding article by Joseph
Novak—the assumed name of a
well-informed Russian who ex-
poses the ordeals of Commun-
ism—in which is described the
tragedy of the Jews in the Sov-
iet Union.
Novak's article declares that
"there is no room for Jews" in
Soviet Russia. -
He declares that Russian
Jews are frightened, that they
are slandered, persecuted; re-
viled.
Novak's articles are from his
book, "The Future Is Ours,
Comrade," published by Double-
day, which was reviewed in The
Jewish News on May 6.

' membership of 575 families, has

The congregation also has
an active Men's Club and Sis-
terhood and conducts a com-
plete program of youth activ-
ities, the latter administered
by the synagogue youth com-
mission under Rabbi Gorrelick's
guidance.
William I. Liberson, im-
mediate past president of the
synagogue, is general chairman
of the testimonial committee,
with Mrs. Albert Kaplan and
Jerome Silberman : serving as
eo-chairmen.
Joseph Braver, Meyer Mill-
man and Mrs. Hyman Zalenko,
recently elected presidents,
respectively, of the congrega-
tions, Men's Club and Sister-
hood, will participate in the
testimonial tributes.
Serving on the committee
will be Max Kaminsky and
Jacob Harris, who were on the
original rabbinic committee
which brought Rabbi Gorrelick
to Beth Aaron 10 years ago;
Dr. Marvin A. Last, Harry
Green, Jack Shenkman, Louis
Ellenson and Philip S. Chap-
nick, past presidents; and
Morris Buch, Samuel Jospey,
Morris Litvin, Samuel Lober-
man, Joseph Lovy, Sidney
Noveck, Avery Shapiro, Max
