California Youths
to Face Trial for
Anti-Semitic Acts

"The Almanach Perpetuum" by Abraham Zacuto, printed
in Leiria, Portugal, 1496, detailing astronomical tables and
calculations used by Vasco de Gama and Christopher Colum-
bus on their epoch making voyages, is part of the current
library exhibit of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America,
New York. The exhibit portrays books and manuscripts on a
broad variety of subjects culled from the library, and intended
to depict the scope of the library collection. All of the items
exhibited are shown as background material for the three
editions of the two volume work "The Jews: Their History,
Culture and Religion s"- edited by Chancellor Dr. Louis Finkel-
stein. The exhibit will continue through Nov. 20 in the Sem-
inary lounge, 3080 Broadway, New York.
