OSIAS ZVVERDLING

vironment, it came from the
Zwerdlings, especially after
Osias brought to Ann Arbor his
bride, Hannah Kaufman, from
Manchester, England, where they
were married on Dec. 25, 1907.
(Mrs. Zwerdling died on Sept.
19, less than three weeks before
her 81st birthday).
The role Osias Zwerdling
played in building up a large
Jewish community — Ann Arbor
Jewry now numbers close to
1,200 permanent residents and
a Jewish student body of more
than 2,300 — will be recalled
on Sunday, when he will observe
his 85th birthday.
A native of Austria, Mr.
Zwerdling came to this coun-
try with a deep devotion to
Jewish traditions. His rise to
success in business, from
which he retired in 1943, was
never permitted to interfere
with the Sabbath' observance
in his home, with the kash-
ruth observance which to this
day necessitates his bringing

Vic Hurwitz Will
Edit and Direct
`Flowering Peach'

Vic Hurwitz, staff director
and producer at WWJ-TV, will
direct Center Theater's Novem-
ber production of Clifford Odets'
"The Flowering Peach."
Acting, directing, and produc-
ing at such theaters as the Peek-
skill Playhouse, Papermill Play-
house and Pas-
adena Play-
house are part
of Hurwitz's
background.
"The Flower-
ing Peach"
opens one
more field of
endeavor f o r
him — that of
editing a man-
Hurwitz uscript into
play form. Because Odets' play
was never formally edited for a
working script, Hurwitz had to
break all the acts down to
scenes and rewrite several of
the actors' parts.
"The Flowering Peach" is a
contemporary retelling of Noah
and the Ark. To make this bibli-
cal tale realistic will be a great
challenge for the director. It is
with his imagination and skill
that storms and floods, sounds
of animals and the voice of the
Lord will be created by unique
sound and lighting effects.
"The Flowering Peach" will
be presented 8:30 p.m. Nov. 9
and 10, 16 and 17, at the Jew-
ish Center. Tickets are available
at the Center box office.

his meat products from De-
troit.
He was the organizer of the
Beth Israel Community Center
which now is linked with the
U. of M. Hillel Foundation
Building, and since its founding
by him in 1913 he has been its
president.
He is honarary president *of
the Bnai Brith U. of M. Hillel
Foundation, is a life member of
the Masons and Kiwanis Club,
serves on the boards of the
Ann Arbor Federal Savings and
Loan and the YM-YWCA, and
is co-chairman of the Ann Arbor
Round Table of Christians and
Jews.
A lifelong Zionist, always
active in the Jewish National
Fund, a leader in efforts in
behalf of the United Jewish
Appeal and the Israel Bond
drives, Mr. Zwerdling also
played important roles in U.S.
War Bond drives and the USO.
Graduates of the University of
Michigan since 1903 who now
reside in many lands look to
Mr. Zwerdling, as they did also
to the late Mrs. Zwerdling, as
the great host who encouraged
them during their student days,
and as the man who provided
for their Jewish religious needs.
And Michigan Jewish leadership
considers Mr. Zwerdling one of
the most loyal participants in the
establishment of this state's
major Jewish institutions.

When Osias Zwerdling came
to Ann Arbor about 60 years
ago, he found a handful of
Jews in the community, very few
Jewish students, practically no
Jewish University of Michigan
faculty members.
But whoever came there,
found hospitality, and if there
is a single factor that can be
pointed to as having served as
encouragement to Jews to feel
at home in that non-Jewish en-
