Editor, The Jewish News:
Last week we saw the movie
"Sallah." I thought it was a de-
lightful comedy. The way he de-
scribes the conditions of the new
immigrants, the miserable naabara,
the trials and tribulations of the
newcomers (especially the Yemen-
ites), right after the establish-
ment of Israel.
The Yemenites are a good peo-
ple, and he shows ‘Sallah not ac-
tually as a thief, but a -man who
in his desperation would do any-
thing to get a roof over his head.
The show is presented in a
lighter veiny like Sholom Alci-
chem said, "laughter through
tears." We do not have to be em-
barrassed (like some people

State of Israel. The country was
new and poor and there were
many unavoidable evils, and the
first newcomers were the real
Looking at the show, I was hap-
py and grateful that there is no
more "maabara" (we saw it on
our visit in 1955) and that people
in Israel now live like mentchen
although there is still -much to be
desired and still many, many prob-
lems to be solved.
Topol (Sallah) is a great actor
and gives us a splendid perform-
