to Examine Renewal
of Jewish Liturgy
The Conservative Rabbinate's
new Mahzor, the High Holy Day
Prayer Book now in preparation,
will commemorate the destruction
of European Jewry with at least
one prayer and some of the holo-
caust literature in the Yiddish
language, it was revealed by Rabbi
Max J. Routtenberg, president of
the Rabbinical Assembly.
The Mahzor in particular and
the liturgy in general will be
discussed at the 65th annual con-
vention of the assembly, May 23-
27, at the Concord, Kiamesha
The Mahzor, according to Rabbi
Routtenberg, will represent the
Conservative rabbis' discontent
with being merely "the transmis-
sion agencies for tradition, al-
though we cannot conceive of
Judaism without knowledge of and
reverence for the spiritual legacy
of our faith. Our High Holy Day
Prayer Book will be rooted in tra-
dition, yet will incorporate more
recent liturgical achievements."

HAKESPEARE usually said it first! That's the message
relayed by the Cleveland Public Library, with the fol-
lowing quotations appended to prove the point: A fool's
paradise (Romeo and Ju-
liet); The primrose path
(Romeo and Juliet) ; It
smells to heaven (Ham-
let); Method in his mad-
ness (Hamlet); Some-
thing rotten in the state
of Denmark (Hamlet);
Hearts of gold (Henry

(Henry IV); Eaten me
out of house and home
(Henry IV); More sinned
against than sinning

to me (Julius Caesar) ; A dish fit for the gods (Julius Cae-
sar); The milk of human kindness (Macbeth); Paint the lily
(King John); The green-eyed monster (Othello).
