`Life Begins at 65'

Local Woman 'Swims to Israel'

Mrs. Morris (Sarah) Hurwitz swam 50 miles to Israel recently.
Impossible as it may sound to a geographer, Mrs. Hurwitz, 65,
braved a few impossibles to perform the feat at the Jewish Center.
The Center's health facilities have been a second home to Mrs.
Hurwitz, who swims 18 to 20 lengths a day. When she had completed
a total of 50 miles, she was awarded a pin and a certificate proving
that she had, indeed, swum "50 Miles to Israel."
Mrs. Hurwitz, of 19790 Monte Vista, learned to swim when the
Center opened five years ago on Meyers Rd. She could barely move
her arms, but since that time Mrs. Hurwitz has joined synchronized
swimming classes, strengthened her muscles and . . . swum 50 miles

.

to Israel.

12th Century Writing
Identified; Music by
Convert to Judaism

CHICAGO (JTA) — An enig-
matic and unique Hebrew manu-

script which has been on display
for many years in the Museum of
the Jewish Theological Seminary,
has now been identified as a litur-
gical poem copied in the 12th Cen-
tury by a Christian convert to Ju-
daism who fled Italy in 1070 C.E.,
when he was converted to Juda-
ism and finally settled in Egypt.
The story of the discovery is
told by Norman Golb of the Uni-
versity of Chicago's Oriental Ins-
titute in the current issue of the
Journal of Religion published by
the University of Chicago Press.
Dr. Golb has definitely shown that
it was Obadiah, the Christian con-
vert to Judaism, who gave the
poem the musical annotations, in
his own handwriting.
Earlier it was assumed that the
music was Jewish in origin. The
musically annotated liturgical
poem in Obadiah's handwriting is
one of the so-called Genizah docu-
ments found in an old synagogue
South of Cairo.
