Spain Establishes
Jewish Museum

In order to strengthen the an-
cient ties which link Spain with
the Jewish people, and provide a
center for Hispanic-Jewish studies,
the Spanish government has just
established by decree a special
museum in the famous 14th cen-
tury Synagog of Samuel Levi,
known today as the Transit Syna-
gog, in the ancient city of Toledo,
near Madrid, it was announced
this week by the Spanish Embassy
in Washington.
Most important of the Toledo
synagogs, the Transit Synagog was
built in 1357, in the unique Tole-
dan "Mudejar" style, by Samuel
Levi, an outstanding Jewish lead-
er in Spain.
In welcoming the creation of
this Spanish-Jewish Museum,
scholars point out that a knowl-
edge of this mixed culture is
essential for an understanding
of the varied aspects of the
Sephardim or Spanish Jews set-
tled all over the world.
The Institute of Sephardic
Studies will hold a Symposium in
Madrid, June 1-10, under the spon-
sorship of the Higher Council of
Scientific Research, the World
Sephardic Federation, and the In-
stitute of Hispanic Culture.
The symposium will attempt to
study the geographical distribu-
tion and social status of Sephardic
culture and people throughout the
world, as well as to formulate
measures for the renewal of bonds
with Spanish culture and the Span-
ish language.
Though principal activities will
take place in Madrid, some events
on the program will be held in
Toledo as well as in Cordoba where
ceremonies in memory of Spanish-
born Moses Maimonides will be
celebrated.

BEST

When Catering Manager, Herman Schwartz, and oft-honored Chef
Hagen team up with victuals, the results are anything but potluck.
Every morsel is painstakingly planned for and perfectly prepared.
This culinary duo can turn a private party of three into a veritable
banquet fit for kings (or queens, as the case may be). Or challenge
the pair with a reception for a thousand. The end will inevitably be
incomparable. The proof, of course, is in the pudding ... or salads
... or steaks ... or whatever strikes your taste buds' fancy. Have a
get-together coming up? Wedding? Anniversary? Bar Mitzvah? Or
business banquet? Just give Mr. Schwartz a buzz (WO 1-8000) for
all the delectable details. Then come put the bite on us.
