Soviet Praise for Israeli,
British Bravos for Troupe

LONDON (JTA) — Israeli con-
ductor Gershon Singer conducted
the Leningrad Symphony Orches-
tra with great success and was
acclaimed by the Soviet music
critics, according to reports reach-
ing here from Leningrad. Singer,
who is currently visiting Russia,
was horn in Prague and settled in
Israel in 1939.
The final performance of the
Yiddish State Theater of Poland
was given here Sunday. Ida Ka-
minska, the noted actress who is
leader of the troupe, said that she
was gratified with the artistic
success of their appearance and
the reception in the British and
Jewish press.
She expressed disappointment,
however, over what she termed
"the inadequate response" of the
Jewish community to the troupe's
presentation of four plays.

Birnam Comes
to Dunsinane Via
Brooklyn Detour

Four hundred years and count-
less interpretations later, Shake-
speare showed up last week at
Brooklyn's Menorah Home and
Hospital for the Aged, where a
troupe of elderly Jewish players
tackled a version of "Macbeth"
that would have tickled Sholem
General opinion of the cast
when they first heard the Mac-
beth story from recreation di-
rector Yedida Nielson, was that
it wouldn't have happened with
the Jews. Yet Zousse Massinca,
82, sounded convincing enough
when he turned to his 76-year-
old Lady Macbeth, Bessie Es-
trich, and muttered "A king I
had to be? A 15-room castle
wasn't good enough for you?"
The wiry leading lady asked
her appreciative audience, "Did
I do bad? I wanted my husband
to be somebody."
The Bard may never have
been known as a physical ther-
apist, but hospital morale has
lifted considerably since the
drama series was initiated last
year with a version of "Romeo
and Juliet" in which a 75-year-
old Juliet asked her 82-year-old
suitor, "You Jewish?"
The troupe's agenda includes
a production written by Lotte
Berkman, 82, a resident at the
home, which recounts the tender
tale of two young lovers whose
parents stop them from marry-
ing but who later meet in a home
for the aged.

Council Backs
Open Enrollment
Schools Policy

Support of an open enrollment
policy under which children may
go to any school of their choice
was one of several recommenda-
tion included in a report on "de
facto school segregation" adopted
by the executive committee of the
Jewish Community Council.
The Council president, Sidney
M. Shevitz, said the proposals
were accepted as a guide to policy
in an area which is considered by
many to be of increasing com-
munity importance. The report,
prepared by the Council's educa-
tional subcommittee, under the
chairmanship of Robert Alpern,
recommended that financial assist-
ance be provided, if needed, to
pupils participating in Detroit's
open enrollment program. Within
this plan, Detroit school children
may presently request a transfer
to any other school that is below
capacity in attendance.
Citing what it considered to be
a priority item, the report drew
attention to the problem of pro-
viding teachers with an under-
standing of the special needs of
disadvantage children. Young tea-
chers, particularly, in the judg-
ment of the study committee, often
encounter difficulty in the class-
room because of no prior experi-
ence in dealing with persons from
varying ethnic, and eco-
nomic backgrounds.
The "Princeton Plan," whereby
schools in close proximity which
are respectively white and Negro
are paired by grades, was thought
to be of limited usefulness in a
community such as Detroit, but
that it would be possible to sup-
port such a plan where feasible
and if achievement levels could
be maintained. The committee felt
that the selection of new school
sites so as to provide convenient
service to both white and Negro
students was an effective means of
achieving orderly integration.
Members of the educational sub-
committee with Robert Alpern as
chairman, included Mrs. Irving
Cane, Dr. Frances Cousens, Alfred
Greenbaum, Leonard Gordon,
Lewis Grossman, Dr. Harold Jaffe,
Mrs. Harvey Lewis, Harry Nosan-
chuk, Harold Norris, Ben Schot-
tenfels, Edwin Shifrin, and Mel
