Puzzling Queries

syndicated column on marriage

and children, offers vitally needed
advice in his newest work, "A
Parents' Guide to the Emotional
Needs of Children." Published by
Hawthorn Books (70 5th, NYU),
his authoritative analyses deal
with problems relating to teachers,
schools, neighborhood, as well as
the parents.
Children's faith, dependent upon
the parents' faith, is summarized
in an admonition in which the au-
thor declares: "Parents who think
through the problem of faith in a
doubting world will want to give
their children the stability and
strength which only those know
who live their lives by principle.
Many see faith as something mys-
tic or unreal. It isn't. It's a very
real, a very practical force."
Speaking in schools with teachers
and the pupils, Dr. Goodman has
this to say, as a summary in one
of the important chapters of his
book entitled "Teachers Help Chil-
dren Acquire a Conscience":

"How to Have a Happy Bar
Mitzva" is a revised edition of "a
manual of etiquette and practical
suggestions for Bar Mitzva and
Bat Mitzva by Hattie Eisenberg.
The publishers (Exp osition
Press) call it "a painless but
proper" guide for those desiring
advice on how to plan a Bar
Mitzva party and the celebrations
for Bat as well as Bar Mitzva
celebrations, and they quote a
recommendation by Sam Levenson
that the book is "charming and in
good taste."

As a mark of added pride of
accomplishment, the author
used the sketches of the Eisen-
bergs' elder daughter, Sally
Cohen, to illustrate the book.
Also, Rabbi Erwin L. Herman
wrote the introduction in which
he commends Mrs. Eisenberg's
emphasis on what follows con-
firmations—the emphasis on the
religious aspects and on the
urgency of continued studies—
declaring: "The Bar Mitzva
that begins with a ceremony of
sanctity must be concluded in
dignity."
In spite of the latter words by a
