It's a Favorite Commimal Pastime: Irene Lankin to Wed
Playing 'The Name's the Same'
Edward R. Mandell

By CHARLOTTE HYAMS
Ringo Starr, whose Beatle
fame has been sprayed through-
out the world, has created a stir
in Jewish teen circles. "He's
Jewish," sigh the girls.
"Ringo? Ringo Starr is a Yid-
dishe nomen?" grandma re-
sponds quizzically.
Well, no, he changed it. But
either way, it's Reuven in He-
brew.
Which brings us to an in-
teresting thought about this
custom of baby-naming. "I
want him named after Uncle
Benny," says the proud new
papa. "Okay," says mama, "if
we can give him a second
name for Aunt Fanny." So
the late Uncle Berel and
Tante Freyah are memorial-
ized: the baby becomes Bruce
Franklin.

Both sides of the family are
at peace—except, perhaps, Uncle
Berel and Tante Freyah, God
rest their souls.
It happens all the time. Mod-
ern Jewish children must have
modern American names. The
result can be puzzling.
Take my three favorite nieces
and nephews:
I. Leib (named after grand-
pa) plus Henna (great grand-
ma) becomes Leah plus Ghana
becomes Laurie (Latin) Anne
(French).
2... D o v (daddy's friend)
plus Yaacov (great grandpa)
becomes Douglas (Gaelic)
James (Latin).
3. Binyamin (second cous-
in) Shlomo (great grandpa)
becomes Bryan (Celtic) Scott
(Scotch).

Using this wonderful talent

f o r nomenclature . chess, w e

could reverse the procedure and

dub anyone with a tribal tag.
Such as:
Robin Hood—Reuven Hershel.
Elvis—Eliezer (freely trans-
lated: Heaven help me).
Charles de Gaulle — Yehezkel
der Gallitzianer.
Lady Bird—Leah Zipporah.
Nikita—Nehemiah.
Peter, Paul and Mary—Pesach,
Peretz and Miriam.
But my favorite name, I must
admit, belongs to the executive
assistant to New York Mayor
Wagner — Julius Caius Caesar
Edelstein. Honest. His parents
always wanted him to be a poli-
tician.

Teen Summer Camp
in Israel Sponsored by
Zionist Youth Group

NEW YORK—A group of 100
teen-agers from 13 to 16 will
take part in a six-week work-
study tour of Israel this summer
under the sponsorship of
Masada, youth group of the
Zionist Organization of America.
Gideon Patt, national chair-
man of Programs in Israel, an-
nounces the group will spend
four weeks in the summer camp
of Kfar Silver, ZOA agricul-
tural training institute near
Ashkelon, where they will be
joilied by 70 children of recent
immigrants from Europe.
In addition to Hebrew
classes, the third annual pro-
gram will feature lectures,
work shops and athletics.
During their stay, the teen-
agers will have the opportunity
to live for a brief period with
an Israeli family. They also have
time to tour the country.
The directors of the teen-age
summer camp in Israel will be
Rabbi and Mrs. Gilbert M. Ep-
stein.

Rep. Nedzi Inserts
in Record Council's
Plea for USSR Jews

Congressman Lucien N. Nedzi
last week inserted in the Con-
gressional Record the text of the
Detroit Jewish Community
Council resolution which ap-
pealed to the USSR to reverse
its anti-Jewish policies.

An abbreviated Haggadah for
the Seder Service has been com-
piled by Martha Marenoff and
was published

Haggadah to contain the mem-
orial service in tribute to the
victims of Nazism.
