Manual for Self-Instructional
Hebrew Studies Supplementing
Rosen's Book Prepared by Shaw

Successful courses in contro-

the Jewish Community Center,

The Irwin Shaw work supple-
ments "Hebrew Self-Taught,"
by Aharon Rosen, published in
behalf of Brit Ivrit Olamit
(World Hebrew Union) in Jeru-
salem. The Rosen book contains
50 lessons of basic Hebrew and
has an assisting Hebrew-Eng-
lish dictionary.
Shaw's manual takes into ac-
count the importance of the
conversational Hebrew courses
and is geared towards the self-
instructional purposes of the
offered courses of study. But
while the purpose is to assist
those who aspire to self in-
struction, both the Rosen text-
book and the Shaw manual lend
themselves to use in classrooms.
Shaw's first objective
through his manual is to
make it unnecessary to look
up words in the dictionary or
to memorize the vocabularies
and grammatical rules. The
format of the translations in
his manual facilitate this ob-
jective. Another objective of
the Shaw manual "is to use
the three senses: sound, sight



2 Germans Get Jail
for Stoning Synagogue
West Germans were given four-
months jail sentences for throw-
ing stones at a synagogue here.
According to the trial testi-
mony, the men, identified as a
31-year-old man by the name of
Turner and a 23-year-old mech-
anic, had been drinking in a bar
owned by a Jew and when they
were refused additional drinks
by a waitress after midnight,
they promptly left the bar
directly for the synagogue.

also is geared towards the
elimination of the need to

Shaw believes that an average
student can complete his basic
Hebrew course in 20 weeks.
The evaluative lessons in the
manual, the emphasis that lead
to knowledge, the accompany-
ing notes, simplify the course
and prove the value of Shaw's
self-instructional approaches.
A basic Hebrew vocabulary
of 500 words is accomplishable
in the Rosen-Shaw method. Re-
cordings also are made avail-
able to assist students of He-

TEL AVIV—The first snow
of the season in Israel fell Tues-
day morning in the Galilee to
add to the woes of a population
buffeted by incessant rain for
the past week.
Rain and gales lashed cen-
tral Israel for the past 24 hours
flooding almost all roads lead-
ing from Tel Aviv to the south
and east. The railway to Jeru-
salem also was flooded. Deputy
Premier Abba Eban was forced
to use a helicopter from Ramleh
to Jerusalem to be on time to
extend a formal farewell to de-
p a r t i n g Congolese President
Joseph Kasavubu.
Desert gullies in the Negev
again were flooded and the
Beersheba bridges were again
washed away. Only a trickle of
heavy trucks were abl?. to go
on to the southern Negev. Eilat,
Israel's southernmost port, and
Arad were cut off for several
Bridges near Tel Aviv were
submerged for many hours.
Traffic slowed to a crawl and
was diverted to side roads. Farm
work was halted, causing a delay
in the potato harvest and there-
by depriving many Israelis of
the traditional Hanukah pan-
By noon TueSday, communica-
tions were restored in all direc-
tions and the waters were sub-
siding. All artificial lakes were
filled to capacity, assuring large
quantities for irrigation.

JWV Chief Asks Law
Against Firearms for
Extremist Groups
Federal legislation to prohibit
extremist political groups, of the
far right and far left, from
maintaining arsenals of firearms
and t r a i n i n g adherents as
marksmen was demanded by
National Commander Daniel
Neal Heller of the Jewish War
Veterans in a letter to Presi-
dent Lyndon B. Johnson.
Heller, of Miami, said that
one fanatical organization which
President Johnson acted against
—the American Nazi Party—
maintains stores of weapons and
actually conducts firing range
training in nearby Arlington,

Levi Eshkol, Prime Minister
of Israel, in a cable received
by Max Bressler, president of
the Jewish National Fund of
America, expressed the full
support of his government and
of the people of Israel for the
recently announced John F.
Kennedy Memorial Forest, to be
created in the American Free-
dom Forest near Jerusalem.
The John F. Kennedy Memo-
rial Forest will consist of mil-
lions of trees, marked by a lofty
memorial shaft surrounded by
50 columns, each bearing the
name of a state of the Ameri-
can republic. The memorial will
be part of the American-Israel
Freedom Forest, designed to
commemorate the bonds of
friendship linking the two na-
tions. It is located at Beitar,
where 2,000 years ago Bar
Kochba waged a gallant battle
for Israel's freedom against the
legions of Rome.
Bressler appealed for what he
termed American Jewry's con-
tribution to the perpetuation of
President Kennedy's memory by
linking it forever with the land
of Israel.

day by Sol Satinsky, president
of the JPS, and Philip Werner
Amram, executor of the estate
of Adolf Amram.
Under terms of the bequest,
the JPS will use the income "to
provide writing fellowships as
subventions to qualified author-
scholars to prepare books of
scholarly quality and of scholar-
ly interest which cannot be fin-
anced on a commercial basis."
Edwin Wolf, 2nd, chairman of
the JPS publication committee,
in expressing the gratitude of
the JPS board of trustees, point-
ed out that this bequest will
make possible the creation and
publication of excellent manu-
scripts which would otherwise
remain unpublished. He stated
further than details regarding
the Adolf Amram Award were
now being worked out and that
a public announcement would be
made in the near future.
The donor, Adolf Amram,
came to the United States as a
penniless immigrant in 1900. He
settled in Greenville, Miss., and
later came to New York City
where he made his fortune in
the insurance business. His wide-
spread cultural interests will be
perpetuated by the bequests
made from his estate to cultural
institutions in New York City,
Philadelphia and Washington.
