James Rosenberg, Noted. American Artist, Donates
Paintings for Archives Fund-Raising Auction. Here

James N. Rosenberg, one of
America's best known legal
minds, who 10 years ago retired
from law practice to devote him-
self entirely to painting, has
contributed four of his paint-
ings to assist in the fund-raising
efforts of the Archives of Amer-
ican Art, in the benefit sale
and auction to take place Nov.
12 to 16, at the Detroit Insti-
tute of Arts.
Mrs. Lawrence A. Fleischman,
an active leader in Archives of
American Art, stated that to
each purchaser of Rosenberg's
paintings also will be presented
a copy of Rosenberg's highly-
acclaimed book on his art works
and his life story.
One of Rosenberg's paint-
ings is called "Galilean Kib-
butz" and was painted in Is-
rael, Mrs. .Fleischman said.

Another also is an Israeli
landscape.
Paintings by other artists will
be auctioned at 8 p.m. on Nov.
15 at the Art Institute.
Rosenberg, now in his 86th
year, continues to paint. His
works have been on exhibition
in museums throughout the
world.
Of the Archives, Rosenberg
says, "When we face realities
in this tormented nuclear world,
we dare not shut our eyes to
the fact that neither our tri-
umphs in World War II, nor
our astronomical outpourings of
treasure since then to revive a
stricken world, have brought
peace to the world; nor dare
we underrate the power of to-
talitarian nations and their vast
propaganda machines.
"Hence, I submit that it ' is

essential for us to use every
possible agency in the field of
arts — literature, music, paint-
ing, architecture, sculpture, the
drama—toward acquainting the
world with the culture created
in this, our land of freedom.

Bernard Isaacs Honored by Local
Educators; Acclaim His New Book

Bernard Isaacs, superinten-
dent emeritus of the United
Hebrew Schools, was honored
last Sunday evening, at a gath-
ering of local leaders and edu-
cators, at the home of . 1VIr. and
Mrs. Wolf Snyder, 1280 Strath-
cone, on the occasion of the
appearance of his latest Hebrew
collection of short stories,
"Hoter Migeza," "A Shoot from
the Stock."
Morris Nobel presided at the
gathering, and addresses in
which the speakers evaluated
Isaacs' educational accomplish-
ments in this community and
his literary efforts were given
by the following:
M. Goldoftas, J. M. Mathis,
Wolf Snyder, Louis LaMed,
Michael Michlin, A. J. Lach-

over, Philip Slomovitz, Norman
Ruttenberg, N. Slobin, Joseph
Katz, Israel Elpern, Irving Pal-
man, A. Toback, Jay Rosen-
shine, M. Becker, and Mrs. Ruth
Chanin.
In his response, Isaacs
reminisced about the educa-
tional activities in Detroit
and he told of the experi-
ences of several of the people
present which he utilized for
the plots in his stories.
One of Isaacs' stories, Nobel
told the gathering, has been
translated from the Hebrew
into Yiddish by M. Goldoftas
and will be read at the Hebrew-
Yiddish night program at the
Jewish Book Fair at the Jewish
Center, Nov. 20, by Mrs. Sarah
Friedman. •
