Activities and
Holiday Books

This is the proper time to
start teaching our youngsters
the meaning of our Holy Days
and the subsequent holidays.
There are many good chil-
dren's books available.
From the Reform viewpoint,
several impressive new story
books have just been published.
for very young children, by the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations.
In the new series of UAHC
First Holiday Books are stories
for Rosh Hashanah and Yom
Kippur, Sukkot and Simhat
Torah, Tu b'Shavat and Shevuot.

trayed as the birthday of Torah.
Regrettably, these stories can
not be recommended for Ortho-
dox and Conservative children
because of their Reform ap-
proaches. The males are hatless,
roles intended for boys in Ortho-
dox and Conservative syna-
gogues are assigned to girls and
the general themes are Reform-
bent. -The narratives, neverthe-
less, lend themselves to more
general utilization than merely
Reform.
A
Another splendid UAHC
contribution to the children's
book shelf is "G'Dee's Book
of Holiday Fun," by Helen
Fine. It is a wprk book, with
stories and piZtures, contain-
ing many brainteagers and
material for art work based
on Jewish themes.
"G'Dee's 'Book" has puzzles
and quizzes. Rosh,Hashanah pic-
ture games, suggestions for cut-
outs, guides for making cere-
monial objects, recipes and
menus, ideas on building a for-
est near a kibbutz in Israel and
scores of other creative activi-
ties. There is some humor in
some of the suggested activities.

Kidnaped from Israel

TEL AVIV, (JTA) — Two
tourists, one Atherican and one
British. who were kidnaped by
six Syrians a week ago, were
returned unharmed to Israel

ing for another American tour-
ist, Mark Goldmann, who is
missing and possibly_held by the
Syrians.

Philip Janovsky, and the British
tourist, 18-year-old Elizabeth
Weil, who are both at the
Yavneh Kibbutz on a one-year
training tour, left the kibbutz
for a tour of northern Israel.
While touring Eon Gev, they
said, they were surrounded by
arms-carrying Syrians, who fired.
at them. Bullets hit their knap-
sacks, but not them.
They said they were blind-
folded and taken to a site they
could not identify. There they
were questioned for hours at
a time about. Israel military
movements, the economic situa-
tion and the forthcoming gen-
eral elections Aug. 15.. Since
they carried foreign passports.
they were not ill-treated.
