Joan Wagner Will
Wed Joseph Pick

Dr. Orlinsky to Deliver 2 Lectures Monday on
Bible Translations at Wayne State University

Prof. Harry M. Orlinsky will
deliver two lectures at Wayne
State University Monday in the
next of the Borman Near East-
ern Lecture Series.
He will - speak at 2:30 p.m. at
the Kresge Science Lecture
Room in the new Protestant,
Catholic and Jewish Bible trans-
lations. At 8:30 p.m., in Room L
of McGregor Memorial Confer-
ence Center, with Leonard N.
Simons as chairman, he will
evaluate the new Jewish Publi-
cation Society translation of the
Torah (Pentateuch).
Dr. Orlinsky, who is professor
of Bible at the New York
School of Hebrew Unio Col-
lege-Jewish Institute of Reli-
gion, is one of the world's out-
standing Bible scholars. He was
editor-in-chief of the new trans-
lation of the Torah for the
Jewish Publication Society of
America. The first Jewish schol-
ar ever invited to take part in
an authorized Christian transla-
tion of the Bible into English,
he was the sole Jewish member
of the committee of 22 scholars
which, in 1952, produced the.
Revised Standard Version of the .
Old Testament.
Dr. Orlinsky is co-translator
of a five-volume English edi-
tion of Rashi's famed corn-

mentary on the Pentateuch.
His latest book, "Ancient Is-
rael," a study of the society
that produced the Bible, pub-
lished by Cornell University
Press, has been hailed by
scholars as the best short his-
tory of Israel available.
He is chairman of American
Friends of the Israel Explora-
tion Society; a Fellow of the
American Academy for Jewish
Research and a member of the

tion, the new Torah manifests
several significant and clear-cut
departures from the manner of
other official Bible translations.
For one thing, it has discarded
the mechanical rendering of
word for word that has charac-
terized Bible translation hith-
erto; instead, it has attempted
consistently to reproduce the
Hebrew text sense for sense, in
clear, idiomatic English. Again,
being sponsored by a purely
cultural, rather than by any re-
ligious body, the new Torah is
generally free of any special
theological tendency; the sole
purpose of the new translation
was to reproduce as accurately
and intelligently as possible the
meaning that the original He-
MISS JOAN WAGNER
brew writer meant to convey.
At
a recent family dinner,
"Thus the new rendering of
Genesis 1.1-3, based solely on Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Wagner of
Philology (Biblical and Extra- Parkside Rd. announced the en-
biblical), has it that 'When God gagement of their daughter,
began to create the heaven and Joan Carol, to Joseph Pick, son
the earth . . . God said, "Let of Mr. and Mrs. L. Pick of
there be light"! and there was Aruba, Netherland Antilles.
The bride-elect and her fi-
light.' In other words, the He-
brew text does not talk about ance attend the University of
