ter, 18340 W. 7 Mile, will be an-
nounced at a testimonial gath-
ering in his honor, at 2 p.m.

Sunday's event, at which

behalf of local, national and

Bernstein was born Sept.
13, 1880, in Slonim, the Rus-
sian province of Grodno. His
father was a Soifer, a Torah
scroll writer. He was the old-
est of eight children. He
studied in the yeshiva of Re-
Janay, the city of his mother's
birth place.
He distinguished himself in
his Talmudic studies, but de-
cided to pursue a religious edu-
cation and went to Bialystok at
the age of 16 and gave private
Hebrew lessons. By way of Ger-
many and England, he left for
the United States five years
later, arriving in New York in
February of 1902.
As a youth, he joined the
Zionist movement, but later de-
fected to the Socialist Labor
Bund.
In this country, his first ac-
tivity was with the Workmen's
Circle, which he joined in 1903.
He organized the Slonimer
Landsleit as Branch 52 of Work-
men's Circle and was elected to
the national general committee
of the movement at the con-
vention in 1910. In New York
he was an active leader in the
18-week cloakmakers' strike.
Coming to Detroit in 1914,
he became active in many
movements here. He was a
leader in the People's Relief
during and after World War
I, was for many years head
of the ORT activities here,
served for many years as a
member of the board of gov-
ernors of the Jewish Welfare
Federation and has been ac-
tive as a board member of
the Home for Aged.
He assisted in the formation
of the Jewish Community Coun-
cil and in all organizational ac-
tivities of the Workmen's Circle
here.
On the occasion of his 75th
birthday, a loan fund was estab-
lished in Israel in his honor.
He visited Israel in 1949 and
has been active for many years
in Histadrut projects here.

The octogenarian has two
daughters, Miss Gertrude Bern-
stein and Mrs. Betty Wolfe, and
a son, Dr. Eli Bernstein, of
Flint; seven grandchildren and
three great grandchildren.

Hit Closing of Schools
on Rosh Hashanah

NEW YORK, (JTA) — The
New York City Board of Edu-
cation plan to close public
schools on. Rosh Hashanah,
Sept. 22 and 23, came under
legal attack from the Free-
thinkers of America. Joseph
Lewis, president of the group,
and Alfred L. Klein, father of
two Staten Island children, filed
papers in court asking the
Board of Education to show
cause why the schools should be
closed.
The suit contends that chil-
dren who are not of the Jewish
faith would be compelled by
the closing "to observe the Jew-
ish New Year against their
will." The school board decided
last January to take the action
because of the large number of
teachers absent on those days.

Brazil Bans Broadcast
of Speeches by Nazis

RIO DE JANEIRO, (JTA) —
The broadcast of a record entitled
"Hitler's Hell," which claims it
"exposes" the iniquities of the
Nazi regime, was banned from
the Brazilian radio and television
networks in an order issued by
the government censor, Walter
Mello.
According to the censor, the
record actually contains speeches
by Hitler, Goebbels, and othe
top Nazis, as well as aural repro
duction of Hitlerian marches. A
narration was arranged for the
record here in Portuguese. Origi-
nally the record was produced in
the United States.

AJ Congress Reports
Supreme Court Split
in Civil Rights Cases

NEW YORK.—A clear 5-to-4
split between the conservative
and liberal wings of the United
States Supreme Court was re-
ported by the American Jewish
Congress in an analysis of civil
rights and civil liberties cases
decided during the term ended
last June.
In a 65-page study, the Com-
mission on Law and Social Ac-
tion of the American Jewish
Congress described the division
within the court as "the most
striking feature" of the 1959-60
term. It said this division was
the continuation of a develop-
ment that had taken place dur-
ing the previous term of the
high court.
The study noted, however,
that in matters of civil rights
affecting N e g r o voting and
school integration the court re-
mained firmly opposed to racial
segregation and discrimination.
The liberal wing of the court
was identified as consisting of
Chief Justice Earl Warren and
Justices Hugo L. Black, William
0. Douglas and William T.
Brennan. They voted most con-
sistently in favor of individuals
claiming constitutional or other
civil rights, the study said.
