Beth Shalom Dinner Honors Rabbi,
Nets $55,000 in Israel Bond Sales

At the Beth Shalom testimonial dinner, which honored Rabbi
Mordecai S. Halpern for his 13 years as spiritual leader of the
congregation, and resulted in $55,000 in Israel Bond subscriptions,
seated (center) is Rabbi Halpern, with Mrs. Halpern and Ira Hirsch-
mann (right), the guest speaker, standing (from left), Albert Rosen-
blum, president of the congregation; Stewart Kepes and Edward
Gluklick, the dinner co-chairmen. More than 400 attended the affair.
Hirschmann, in a stirring appeal, recounted how as special envoy of
President Roosevelt to Turkey in 1944, he "bought Jewish children
at $300 a head" and smuggled them into Palestine. "Nobody else
wanted the children, including the United States," he said. Hirsch-
mann, who rescued thousands of Jews from the Holocaust, and has
just returned from a U.S. State Department mission to Jordan, said
the Arabs realize they can't defeat Israel while the Jews of the free
world and especially America stand behind Israel, but the Arabs
feel the Jews in America will get tired and withdraw their support,
and then the Arabs will attack Israel.

"A man of the soil, he loved
every inch of Eretz Israel and
was a dedicated adherent of the
Kibbutz movement.
"As head, at various times, of
the Aliya, Youth, and Organiza-

Pianist Ray Lev,
'Second Myra Hess

NEW YORK—Pianist Ray Lev
died Monday at age 56. Her last
public appearance was on April 28,
when she played the Schumann
piano concerto at Philharmonic
During the last five years she
made three tours of Europe, giving
concerts in Berlin, Vienna, Munich,
Stockholm and London; for two of
those years she served on the fa-
culty of Tokyo University of Arts
and Music. She was said to be the
first American to hold such a post
in Japan.
The Russian-born • pianist was
brought to this country as an in-
fant. Her father, Moses Lev, was
a cantor who sang in New York,
New Haven and other cities. Miss
Lev sang in her father's choir
early in life, and decided to be-
come a pianist after hearing a
Paderewski recital.
Her many recordings once
prompt the Saturday Review to call
her "a second Myra Hess." She
toured Israel in 1950, and played in
many places seldom visited by es-
tablished artists.

For $499, Lufthansa
does more than give you
a 15-day Italian tour.

It keeps you from
feeling like a tourist.

We call It the "Roman Sojourn." It's our name for a special
tour during which we try to do for you what you'd do for your-
self if you had a real home-town knowledge of every major
city in Italy.

We take care of all the usual traveler-tormenting details
about food, lodgings, transportation, tickets, tips. All you do
is enjoy yourself.
We'll start by jetting you to Munich and give you a day in the
gorgeous Austrian Alpine country. Then we'll smooth your
way through Milan, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Naples, Capri,
Pompeii, and later take you back over the Swiss Alps to
Zurich, Stuttgart and Frankfurt.
For fifteen days we guide you to the places you want to see,
help you do what you want to do. And if some morning or
afternoon you'd like to skip something; that's all right, too.
Fact is, long before your Roman Sojourn is over, you'll tell
yourself that if you'd known Lufthansa could make seeing
Italy this easy, you would have gone last year.
