NEW YORK (JTA)—The Yid-
!dish Dictionary Committee an-
nounced that the second volume
of the Great Dictionary of the
Yiddish Language has been com-
pleted and will be distributed in
January.
The second volume contains
more than 600 pages with defini-
tions of more than 20,000 Yiddish
words, as well as notes on gram-
mar, etymology and historical
backgrounds of the words. Also
included are citations from early
and modern Yiddish literature.
The first two volumes include
definitions of more than 40,000
words beginning with the letter
"Aleph." Israel Steinbaum, secre-
tary general of the committee,
said it had been estimated that
another eight to nine more vol-
umes would be needed to com-
plete definitions of the estimated
250,000 words in Yiddish.

The late Judah A. Joffe and
Yudel Mark have served as edi-
tors-in-chief of the first two vol-
umes. Hundreds of correspond-
ents and consultants have contri-
buted to the contents.

Self-love is the greatest of flat-
terers.

"ISRAEL TODAY"

This cartoon and story are reproduced from. "A Picture Parade of Jewish History" by Morris
Epstein, published by Shengold Publishers, New York, by special arrangement with the author and
publishers.

Moses Mendelssohn was a man
with a mission: he wanted to break
down the ghetto walls that hemmed
in German Jewry.
Born in Dessau, Germany, to
Mendel the Sofer (Torah scribe),
Moses was educated by the local
rabbi, D avid Hirschel Frankel,
whom he followed to Berlin in
1743 at the age of 14. He then be-
gan to study mathematics, Latin,
Greek, and philosophy, while he
continued his Jewish studies, con-
centrating or. the works of Maimo-
nides.
He met mportant people in the
world of literature and art and his
home became a meeting place for
many of the outstanding thinkers
of the day. Mendelssohn was witty,
intelligent, and a sparkling con-
versationalist. It was said that
French noblemen, on visiting Ger-

many, declared that they had come
only to see the king and Mendels-
sohn. You must bear in mind that
this was a time when German Jews
still had to live in ghettos and
special permission was necessary
for a Jew to live in Berlin.
Mendelssohn was very active in
Jewish affairs. The best-known Jew
in Germany, he used his influence
to help Jewish communities in his
own country and elsewhere. He
felt that the way to destroy ghetto
walls was to bring the outside
world to his people and to lead
his people to the world beyond
the ghetto.
Mendelssohn op e n e d a free
school in Berlin where Jewish boys
were trained in trades and were
taught the German language as
well as Bible and Talmud. He trans-
lated the Five Books of Moses and

Try and Stop Me

NEW SECOND GRADE teacher, who had majored in
A
psychology at college, gave every one of her charges
this letter to take home to their parents after their first day

in the f all semester:
"Dear Mamas and Papas:
If you'll promise not to
believe everything your
Child tells you that hap•
pens at school, I'll prom»
ise not to believe every-
thing I hear about what
happens at home. Your
Child's teacher."

A. bus driver deserted his

a. seedy-looking character

some seats to the rear.
"Don't you see that sign
Saying 'No Smoking Al-
lowed'?" demanded the driver. "I do," admitted the passenger.
"I also see the sign next to it saying 'Wear a Lovable Brat.'
ain't paying no attention to that one, either."

Psalms into German, and pub-
lished the German translation, in
Hebrew letters, next to the He-
brew text. From this translation
many Talmud students learned
the German language and went on
to study general subjects.
Mendelssohn wrote Jerusalem,
in which he showed that a Jew
could be loyal to religious tradi-
tion and yet be modern in outlook.
He asked for equality for all cit-
izens without regard to creed.
While pleading for tolerance,
Mendelssohn cautioned his fellow-
Jews to keep up their Jewish tra-
ditions and ceremonial laws. He
had been so successful in battering
down the ghetto walls, however,
that for some this warning came
too late. Among his followers were
those who were so eager to grasp
the cultural and economic oppor-
tunities offered them that they
broke completely with Judaism.
They hoped that by doing this,
Jews would be more readily ac-
cepted by their non-Jewish neigh-
bors. Mendelssohn's own daughters
embraced Christianity. -
Mendelssohn's place in Jewish
history is very secure. He built a
road from the ghetto to the world
outside. He did not intend it to be-
come, as it did for same, a one-way
street.

Moslem Officials Join
in Morocco Jews' Fete

CASABLANCA (JTA)—A num-
ber of Moslem officials attended a
ceremony marking the 50th anni-
versary of the Jewish Cultural
Association of Tetuan, capital of
North Morocco.
After Morocco achieved inde-
pendence, it was divided into two
zones. Tetuan, which has some
2,500 Jews, became the capital of
Spanish Morocco. At that time
there were some 7,000 Jews in
Tetuan.
Among the Moslem leaders who
attended the anniversary event
were the Iraqi ambassador to
Morocco, M. de Nouna. The direc-
tor of Tangier Radio, also a Mos-
lem, accepted an invitation to par-
ticipate in a symposium on the
problems of birth control organ-
ized in Tangier by the Alliance
Israelite.
