Rabbi Shulman Writes Informative Danny Raskin's
Book on 'What It Means to Be a Jew'

"What It Means to Be a Jew,"
by Rabbi Charles E. Shulman,
published by Crown (419 Park
Ave. .5., N.Y. 16), serves as a
guide for young Jews who seek
information about their faith
a n d kinsmen,
about Jewish
traditions and
festivals,
about Jewish
personalities.
It is an in-
terpretation of
the philosophy
of Judaism, of
t h e character
of the Jew, o
Israel and the
state's prob-
lems.
It is no won-
der that Dr.
Harold E.
C a s e, presi-
dent of Bos-
ton U n i v e r- Rabbi Shulman
sity, in a foreward to this book,
stated that its author, "writing
in this tense moment, when
mankind searches for its soul,
has not sought to lull anyone
into complacency but rather to
summon his readers to re-
examination, renewal and re-
vival. Perhaps, if they read this
book carefully and meditate
d e e p l y, his aim may be
realized."
Pursuing the current dis-
cussion as to what is a Jew,
what it means to be one, the
handicaps a n d obligations,
Rabbi Shulman points to dis-
advantages and declares that
"it is hard to be a Jew when
the Jewish religion and the
Jewish events of _history are

not adequately understood or
represented." But he a 1 s o
indicates the advantages of
being "on the side of right,
as it is an advantage to be
on the side of the inevitable
winner in the struggle be-
tween good and evil." Thus,
he evaluates the character of
the Jew, his "sensitiveness to
social disunity and maladjust-
ment," his vision of peace,
his prophetic idealism.
His evaluation of Jewish con-
cepts leads him to advocacy of
good reading. He propagates
acquisition of knowledge of
Judaism by Jews and their
reading of good literature.
An important section of the
book deals with personalities,
and among those described are
Stephen S. Wise, Sholem Asch,
Leo Baeck, Israel Zangwill,
Louis D. Br a n d e i s, Hayim
Greenberg, Ludwig Lewisohn,
Henrietta Szold, Aaron David
Gordon and Milton Steinberg.
He deals with issues and
problems affecting Jewry —
with assimilation, the various
branches of Judaism, the
functions of rabbis, the man-
ner in which holiness is
practiced "a Ia Hollywood,"
etc.
The section on Israel covers
many subjects—religion in the
Jewish state, the Arab problem,
the military needs, etc.
"What It Means to Be a Jew"
will be found of considerable
value especially by the younger
generation of Americans who
are craving for knowledge
about their faith and their
people.

ADOLPH KESSLER, w e 11 -
known real estate man now with
Schatten Realty, and Shirley
Cash, also with the firm, met
each other for the first time
and discovered an ironic twist
to their fateful meeting . . .
Adolph came to America about
40 years ago, lived in the little
town of Rankin, Pa., popula-
tion app. 2,000, and worked for
"people named Markowitz" who
had two daughters, Mollie and
Sadie . . . As time went on,
Sadie's mother grew .fond of
Adolph and tried to arrange a
marriage between him and
Sadie . . . It never materialized,
however, and both eventually
went their separate marital ways
. . . But the conversation that
took place between the two
Schatten Realty employees re-
vealed an astounding thing .. .
Shirley was the daughter of
the same Sadie Markowitz!
* * *
WHILE IN A RESTAURANT,
recently, with mother and
father, Fern and Art Harris,
six-yea•-old Susie looked won-
deingly at her dad as he bent
to sit down . . . Finally, after
glancing at her eight-year-old
brother Alan, she turned and
asked, "Daddy, are you grow-
ing taller all the time?" . . .
Art said no, and wondered why
she asked• . "Cause the top
of your headis starting to poke
through your hair replied ,

little Susie.

DAVE DOMBEY, local pho-
tographer, got that "old old
feeling" when booked by Mrs.
Henry Margolis to photograph
the wedding of her daughter,
Judy, to Barry Maranoff of New
York . . . Whatever thoughts
Dave had about being a rela-
tively young camera-clicker flew
out the window but fast when
Mrs. Margolis showed him a
picture he had taken of the
bride as an infant 20 years ago!
. .. Dave is a member of the
Northwest Professional Photog-
raphers Guild, and in charge of
the North District Youth Place-
ment Office of the Detroit Pub-
lic Schools.

HEARD ON A local golf
course, recently, by Lou Gold,
waiting to get on the tee . . .
"Wowie! I've never played so
badly before." . . "Oh!" said
his caddie, "You have played
before, then!"
* * •
25 YEARS AGO, the engage-
ment announcement of Ethel
Green to Sidney • Greenstein
was made at a silver anniver-
sary party of his parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Harry Greenstein .. .
Now, a quarter of a century
later, Ethel and Sidney are
following in the same tradition
. . . by choosing their own 25th
wedding anniversary to an-
nounce the engagement of
daughter Barbara Lee, to Mar-
tin Schwartz.
* *
HARD TO BELIEVE but only
one more year to go and nephew
Gerald Weingarden will be a
full fledged doctor . . • Jerry
and wife Jo An (Simons) were
in town from Des Moines, Ia.,
where he has been attending
Still College of Osteopathy and
she is teaching school . .
Amazing how time flies . . .
Imagine little (6'4") Jerry a
doctor . . . and he's already
brought two babies into the
world . . . Well, wouldn't you
be proud if you were the uncle
that used to tell him bedtime
stories?
