impact on every phase of Israeli
life and has given impetus to the
art world. It has resulted in a
boom for the artists and the gal-
leries.
Galleries have blossomed forth
in colonies much the same as the
artists who have created real and
not so real colonies.
The special vogue that took
hold within days after the war
was the flurry of albums and
sketches that showed up on the
news stands and then in publica-
tions all over the world.
Yossi Stern turned out a
quickie that had a tremendous
sale and so did Shimon Kaplan.
Yosef was in my home when I
received my call to my unit be-
fore the outbreak of the war. He
told me that he was going with
me as he hadn't been called. He
is that kind of person. He was in
the abortive Hungarian revolution
that was crushed by the Russians
and had fled to Israel. Yosef went
up to Jerusalem and, without pa-
pers or a unit to be attached to,
followed right behind the soldiers
with sketch pad in hand.
An accomplished artist from
Hungary he has found strength
in Israel and he creates some
of the finest landscapes in the
country.
"The Painting Rabbi" is a new
phenomena in modern Israel. Tzvi
Raphaeli answers the call. He is
an ardent student of the Talmud
and a part-time teacher with a
rabbinical degree. He was born in
Egypt and lives in Jerusalem. Of
late he has been touring with his

and Canada and recently to South
America. He studied in Milan. His
forte has always been street scenes
and those of the Mea Shearim were
his favorites.
The most powerful paintings and
sculpture that I have seen since
the war were produced by a Dizen-
goff prize winner, Yohanan Ben-
Yaakov, a kibutznik. His works of
art evoke a feeling of power and
strength that have no equal.
Yehuda Rodan quit medicine
and became a painter; you can
imagine his mother's initial reac-
tion. Today at 49, and living in
Israel, is this man—a survivor of
four years, of forced labor under
the German Nazi regime. Upon his
return to Romania after the war,
he was a member and director of
the Romanian Painters Union. His
portraits and figures are solidly
drawn; he is able to seize the sali-
ent points of a scene and give them
proper emphasis.

Sabbath Tradition

By RABBI SAMUEL J. FOX

(Copyright 1968. JTA

Inc.)

The Sabbath morning service as-
sociates the Sabbath closely with
Moses, by reciting the prayer
"Yismakh Moshe," for example.
There are various explanations
for this. Some claim it is because
Moses requested the Pharaoh in
Egypt to grant the Hebrew slaves
one day of rest and the seventh
day of the week was granted them.
Moses was later delighted when
the Almighty designated the sev-
enth day as the official day of rest
for the Jewish people in the course
of the Revelation at Sinai. Others
claim it is because Moses had ear-
lier announced that the Sabbath
was to be given to the Jewish peo-
ple as a gift from the Almighty.
Still others contend that it is be-
cause the Tora was actually given
on the Sabbath at Sinai. This, of
course, was Moses' glorious mo-
ment since it was he that went up
to the mountain to receive the
Tora.

Bombay-born Aaron Judah, who
now lives in the Canary Islands,
and whose earlier novel, "Clown on
Fire," won the Dial Press fiction
fellowship award in 1966, has pro-
duced another good novel based on
his experiences. Under the title
"Clown of Bombay," his new work,
also published by Dial (750 3rd,
NY17), he describes the experi-
ences of a 14-year-old lad, Joe
Hosea, son of a prosecuting attor-
ney, whose exploits provide activ-
ity that develops into the drama
well delineated by the able author.
Joe Hosea gets into mischief, is
irreverent, a nuisance to his sis-
ters. He gets involved indirectly in
the death of one of his classmates,
his family resorts to a psychiatrist,
there is much humor in the en-
suing motivations for this story
and the lad Joe emerges with a
strong will.
The rebellious spirit, the -Way-
wardness in the story, the genuine
humor, contribute toward the
wholesomeness of the tale about a
Bombay boy, his family and his
community.
