Hanuka Books Among Featured
Current Volumes for Children

On the eve of Ilanuka, children's
stores are beginning to multiply,
and there is a vast variety of nar-
ratives for the young—the very
young and their elder ones.
There are many such books now
available for those seeking good
o nes as gifts and those desiring
to purchase them for their young-
sters. as well as those approach-
ing teen-agers.
There is charm in the picture
story by Marilyn Hirsh, "Where
Is Yankela?", published by
Crown. Yankela was believed
lost and the mother became
panicky, fearing he either fell
into a well or was eaten by
wolves. Then the problem was
presented to the rabbi, he ad-
vised that Yankela was where
he was left and, sure enough,
he was found in his home. The
splendid pictures by the author
help make it a book that will
charm the very young reader.
From Hawthorn Books comes a
book about "making music." In
"A Little Happy Music," Robert
Winsor, in story and pictures, de-
scribes the interest in music by
youngsters, how Uncle Charles the
musician utilizes Gramma's old
piano for Kenny and Idella to
create song and to make for a live-
ly celebration in which young and
old participate.

A novel for young people that
is especially meritorious and
serves well as a Hanuka gift is
the story based on the Maccabean
theme written by Libby M. Klaper-
Published by Funk and Wag-
nails as a Sabra Book, under the
title "The Five Brothers Macca-
bee," this new novel is based on
ancient records, on the Maccabean
story as told in the Book of the
Maccabees and is narrated in a
style that will fascinate the teen-
ager as well as those considerably

The splendor of this novel lies
not only in the manner in which
Hannka's founding heroes are
delineated but in the portrayal
of the heroes. The personality
sketches of the Maccabees as de-
scribed here are superb.
Mrs. Klaperman lectures at Ye-

shiva University's Stern College.

With her husband, Rabbi Gilbert
M. Klapennan, she has written a
Jewish history for youth and she
has authored a number of volumes,
in addition to writing many mag-

From Hawthorn Books comes a
most interesting story for young
Americans. Bernice Kohn has pro-
duced a remarkable story about
the Cherokee Indians and about the
greatest of the Cherokee heroes.
Entitled "Talking Leaves: The
Story of Sequoyah," this is a story
of a tribe and of a hero.
It combines biography with his-
tory and its noteworthy role is
enhanced by the splendid illustra-
tions by Valli.
Children who love to read about
Indians, who admire heroes, who
wish to link themselves with a
great tribe and its customs and its
people, will love this story.
And in the process of enjoying
a great book—especially well pre-
pared for young readers—they will
learn history.
Bernice Kohn, who is married
to Dr. G. David Weinick, of Man-
hattan and Long Island, has per-
formed a magnificent task with this

°Man grad God' hi _Biblical Theology
Meads JVSU _Press' Newest _Publi•ations

"Man and God," subtitled "Stu-1
dies in Biblical Theology," is a I
major work just published by
Wayne State University Press. Its
author, Dr. Eliezer Berkovits,
chairman of the department of
Jewish philosophy at Ilebrew The
ological College, Skokie, Ill., here
outlines basic concepts and offers
interpretations and comments that
serve to enrich Jewish studies and
knowledge of the Bible.
A knowledge of God is empha-
sized at the outset as means of
approaching the basic issues, and
the personal relationships between
man and God are reviewed in
numerous definitive analyses re-
sulting from the author's drawing
upon the witings of most noted
Dr. Berkovits touches extensive-
ly upon emunah—belief and faith
—and a variety of subjects which
enhance the work he has created.
Especially significant is his
study of s'dagah—usually spelled
tzedaka — and the concept of
charity and justice.
In a spirit of confidence in the
future and the justice of the ideas
in sedeq and s'dagah by Iasaiah,
Rabbi Berkovits writes:
"The vision of salvation will not
be confounded forever, the day of
s'dagah is sure to dawn. Because
God created sedeq; because crea-
tion itself is an act of sedeq. The
universe incorporates the principle
of sedeq which is one with the
principle of creation. Because
God's sedeq is the cosmic princi-
ple alive in the world, in the final
reckoning it will bring forth the
triumph of salvation and s'daqah
on earth. The sadiq, who will reign
as kind and prosper, who will
create mishpat and s'daqah, in
whose days Judah shall be saved
and Israel shall dwell safely, may
tarry; yet come he will. God, our
sedeq, is the guarantor."
Thus, while evaluating s'daqah
Dr. Berkovits also has taken into
account the role of the sadiq, the
saibtly one, and the God of justice.

In this fashion the entire work,
dealing with "Man and God,"
offers a definitive study of the the-
ology of the Bible. It is a most
creative work that enriches the
WSU bookshelf.

The new WSU Press publications
include an impressive study, "An-
alysis of Poetic Thinking," by Dr.
Max Rieser. It was translated from
the German by Herbert M. Schuel-
Regarding himself as departing
from the methods of Freudian and
Jungian interpreters, Dr. Rieser
holds the view that a specific form
ensues from the regression in the
mental structure of a poet result-
ing from his deep personal and
often passionate involvement with
the poem's subject matter.

very young reader, to introduce
him to wildflowers and grasses in

and snow and waves and dunes—
by an author who has seen and

an illustrator who understands the

'reading habit, in this splendid book
entitled "Moving Hills of Sand."
