A local firm has ceased to do
business with a Mississippi sup-
plier as a protest to the Southern
state's "transgression on justice, as
well as human dignity."
Maynard W. Fine, president of
Contract House on James Couzens
Hwy., NsTote to the Madison Furni-
ture Industries in Canton, Miss.,
that his firm had ceased purchas-
ing from Madison because the "fa-
cility is situated in the state of
Mississippi, where it has been re-
vealed that certain spiritual and
moral values are in dramatic con-
tradiction to what we interpret as
the American ideology. The city

become notorious for its trans-

Fine pointed out that the Can-
ton firm's merchandise is of
good quality, and there was still
a need for the product. How-
ever, "we cannot continue to
contribute indirectly to another
cause dedicated to the under-

mining of these principles (that
make up the essence of this

land)."

Fine, a member of Temple Ema-
nu-El, Oak Park, discussed his

feelings on the matter with Rabbi
Milton Rosenbaum before taking
action.
In forwarding a copy of the let-
ter to the Jewish Community

Council, Rabbi Rosenbaum com-
mented to Walter Klein, director
of the Council: "I need not tell
you how proud I am to be able to
serve people who take the reli-

gious principles concerning a de-
cent society seriously."

very attractive ones is the Koren
Hagadah published in Israel and
available in this country from the
American distributors, Jerusalem
Tenach, Inc., 250 W. 57th, N.Y.C.
The large type is the especially
unique characteristic of this Haga-
dah. There are a number of fine
illustrations by Mrs. R. Ben-Ari.
While the numerous plates
add to the typographical beauty
of this Hagadah, the translation
into English by Prof. H. Fisch
is worth noting. It is not cram-
med and serves the purpose of

ing of the text.
The Jerusalem Academic Press
did a fine printing job in setting

the English portions. The typeset-
ting was done by Boys' Town Jeru-

salem Nahal on Mount Zion. A
number of experts were called in
to assure for the Koren Hagadah
the uniqueness that distinguishes
this Israeli product.
