Dr. Friedman Compiles
Judah Magnes Legacy

The Memorial Foundation for
Jewish Culture in New York has
awarded a $3000 grant to the Ju-
dah L. Magnes Memorial Museum
in Berkeley for the preparation of
"The Legacy of Judah Magnes."
The first comprehensive anthology
writings by the San Francisco Bay
Area-born rabbi for whom the mu-
seum is named.
The museum has chosen Dr.
Maurice Fried-
man, editor and
interpreter of the
of Martin Buber,
t o compile t h e
works o f Mag-
nes, who was a
founder of the
Hebrew Univer-
sity i n Jerusa-
lem, the Ameri-
Can Civil Liber-
ties Union, the
Joint Distribu-
t i o n Committee
and who was the
first Californian
to become .a rab-
Dr. Magnes bi.
Dr. Friedman will edit Magnes'
lectures, essays, books, memoran-
da and. personl reflections, which
will cover Magnes' thoughts on Ju-
daism, Zionism, God, and peace, as
well as the more immediate prob-
lems he faced as a pacifict, as a
community leader and as a soli-
tary proponent of Arab-Jewish
unity. "The Legacy" will supple-
ment an already-existing biography,
"For Zion's Sake" by Norman
Bentwich, with analyses and inter-
pretation not included in the ear-
lier book.
For his research, Dr. Friedman
will use the extensive archive col-
lection at the Magnes Museum, and
will also .visit Israel to talk with
some of Magnes' close associates,
and to use archive material there.
Dr. Friedman is convinced of the
value of studying Magnes' writings,
and urges the recognition of his
greatness "as a person, as a Jew,
as a builder of local, national, and
international community, as a
fighter for justice, and a ,worker
for peace." He adds, "IVIagnes can
be an image for man for many to-
day who want to discover a mean-

ingful way forward for Zion beyond
the mere existence of the State of
Israel, a spiritual and moral way
forward for the Jewish community
of the Diaspora beyond mere con-
formity with the mores of the ma-
A professor of philosophy at
Manhattanville College of the
Sacred Heart in New York, Dr.
Friedman has authored 'Martin
Buber: the Life of Dialogue." This
first comprehensive study of the
philosopher's work has been called
"a real contribution to American
culture," by the noted theologian
Reinhold Niebuhr. Dr. Friedman
has also - edited and translated
books by Buber, and is a frequent
contributor to philosophical, relig-
ious, psychological, and general
journals. He has received numer-
ous foundation grants for his work
since he graduated from Harvard
magna cum laude in 1943.

tee-supported loan funds during
1965 was negligible, despite an
over-all drop of 11 per cent in the
total number of loans to needy
Jews made by the loan funds,
Charles H. Jordan, ,JDC director
general reported here.
He attributed the smallness of
the reduction to world-wide infla-
tionary trends and price increases,
which necessitated a further raise
in the ceilings on such loans. As a
result, he said, the average amount
of loans reached an all-time high
of $747, up 6 per cent over the
average in 1964.
He said the total number of
loans made in 1965 in 19 countries
where JDC funds operate was
4,613 in 1965, compared with 5,202
in 1964. He added that "the
primary cause for the reduction
in the number of loans has been
a considerable drop in loan activi-
ties in North African countries,
where Jewish communities con-
tinue to shrink. Also the virtual
cessation of loan fund operations
in Latin America where Jewish
immigration sharply diminished."

WALTHAM, Mass. — Brandeis
University students will have the
opportunity of taking extra courses
outside their fields of concentra-
tion under a "Pass-Fail" .plan
adopted by the university as a re-
sult of a student recommendation.
The plan, which will be inaugu-
rated this fall, was proposed by
the student educational policies
committee and endorsed by the
joint student-faculty educational
policies committee. It subsequently
was approved by the faculty and
later adopted by the university
Under the "Pass-Fail" option,
students will be allowed to broaden
their undergraduate education by
experimenting in unfamiliar aca-
demic areas without adversely af-
fecting their over-all averages.
The students will be able to take
four semester courses on the
"Pass-Fail" basis throughout their
undergraduate years, but may take
only one course during any given
semester. The option has not yet
been extended to freshmen and
only one such course will be al-
lowed during the sophomore year.
Under the "Pass-Fail" policy, a
student who successfully completes
an extra course with a grade of
"Pass," will receive appropriate
academic credit. The course will
not be considered in computing the
student's academic average.
