"Jewish Holidays" evaluates
and discusses the festivals for the
7-13 age gtoup. The book is
illustrated and Hebrew terms, in
Hebrew type, are used frequently
to emphasize the traditional
values.
According to Farber the second
volume will not repeat any portion
of Cycle I, except for sentences
that are basic. The third volume
will contain new concepts and ap-
proaches and challenging inter-
pretations.
"Young people justifiably pro-
test" says the author, "because of
the constant repetition of holiday
material. They squirm and remon-
strate when holidays come
around. 'Do we have to go over
that again?' is an oft repeated
query." These student frustrations
have led to negative results and
and certainly have not enriched
our young Jewish people with a
priceless holiday heritage."
The Farber volume aims to cor-
rect these misconceptions. The
"Teacher's Guide" offers more
than 100 suggestions and is indis-
pensable as in adjunct to the basic

Joey Kuperman Says:

Want nachas from your children!

Talk to the kids of
Yeshiva Beth Yehudah.

1)

They receive the finest in Jewish education—includ-
ing Bible, History, Hebrew language, and Talmud.

2)

The Phi Beta Kappa Society of Michigan has awarded
more certificates of commendation proportionally to
the boys and girls of Beth Yehudah than any other
school in the state — public, private or parochial.

At the last Wayne State University graduation, three
out of five of our graduates were admitted into the
society itself.

3)

Parents are especially proud of the Bar Mitzvah train-
ing their children receive. Their children are taught
how to conduct services, read the Torah Scroll and sing
the Haftorah. (Incidentally, all Bar Mitzvah instruc-
tion is free.)

4)

The children learn to love Land of Israel. In fact, close
to 20 of them are now continuing their studies in
Israel.

5)

They're proud to be Jews — as well as Americans.
You'll be proud of them too.

The kids know all of this and they won't kid you.
Their brand new school on Fairfax in Southfield will open
during the fall. Girls' classes will be held in the beautiful
building on 7 Mile and Lesure. You can register your
child, nursery through high school, by calling
