NEW YORK (JTA) — Discovery
of a document dating back to the
year 1020 of the Christian Era,
showing for the first time that
Jews lived at that time in Sicily,
under Moslem rule, was reported
here Sunday night at the annual
meeting of the American Academy
for Jewish Research, held at the
Jewish Theological Seminary here.
Enough is good as a feast.
The report was made by Nor-
man Gold, assistant professor of
medieval Jewish studies at the
University of Chicago's department
of Oriental languages and civiliza-
tion. He found the parchment in
the Bodleian Library at Oxford
University, and deciphered it
through the use of ultraviolet rays.

The parchment was part of a col-
lection recovered from the Geni-
zah of Cairo nearly 70 years ago.
According to Gold, the docu-
and Orchestras

a THE NEW

Researcher Tells How
Giant Glass Slab Made
in 7th Century Palestine

NEW YORK (JTA)—Technical
details on the composition and
probable method of manufacture
in the 7th Century of the Common
Era of a giant slab of glass found
by archaeologists in a cave in
Beth Shearim near Haifa, Israel,
and believed to be the largest
piece of glass until this century,
was presented at the annual meet-
ing of the Archaeological Institute
of America Thursday by Dr. Rob-
ert H. Brill, a research scientist
of the Museum of Glass in Corn-
ing, N.Y.
Dr. Brill headed the research
team which proved that the 8.8-
ton slab measuring 11 by 6.5 by
1.5 feet is actually glass. Dr. Brill
said Tuesday that the giant slab
of glass shows the "remarkable
engineering and technology for
that time." The fact that ancient
technology was able to make an
8.8-ton piece of glass has surprised
many specialists.
Only two pieces of glass made
in this century have been larger
than the piece in the Beth Shearim
cave. They are two chunks of glass
cast for components of the world's
largest telescope at the Mount
Palomar observatory.
