Katsh Jubilee Book
Published in Israel

"The Abraham I. Katsh Jubilee
Book" in honor of the 60th birthday
of the Judaica scholar, educator
and author, was published this
week in Jerusalem by the firm r.f
Hotzaat Machbarot Lesifrut. The
dedicatory book, which is the work
of former students who now reside
in Israel, also marks the 60th anni-
versary of Dropsie University, of
which Dr. Katsh is president.
The "Jubilee Book" was edited
by Dr. Jacob ben-Yosef of the
department of education in the
city of Tel Aviv. Dr. ben-Yosef,
as did all the other contributors
to the volume, received their doc-
torate degrees under Dr. Katsh
when he was director of the Insti-
tute of Hebrew Studies in the
graduate school at New York
University before coming to
The book, written entirely in
Hebrew, deals with Dr. Katsh's
pioneer efforts in establishing mod-
ern Hebrew for the first time as an
accredited course in an American
university; his many visits to the
USSR where he was permitted to
microfilm several thousand manu-
scripts and rare documents of
Judaica which until then had been
unavailable to Western scholars;
his pioneering educational efforts
in Israel beginning in 1947, when
he brought the first group of Amer-
ican professors and students to that
country; and his long associations
with David Ben-Gurion, President
Zahnan Shazar, Prime Minister
Golds Meir and other Israel rab-
binical, and governmental leaders.
One section includes a selection
of articles which Dr. Katsh had
written for various scholarly pub-
lications throughout the years; and
another is devoted to special con-
gratulatory articles written by a
number of scholars who were
among his students.

three-day joint meeting of the
World Council of Churches, repre-
senting 242 Protestant, Anglican
and Orthodox Catholic denomina-
tions, and a 14-man Jewish delega-
tion. The latter included repre-
sentatives of the World Jewish
Congress, the Synagogue Council
of America, the American Jewish
Committee and the Bnai Brith Anti-
Defamation League.
(The meeting and its outcome
were described as highly signifi-
cant by Rabbi Marc H. Tanen-
baum, national interreligious af-
fairs director of the American
Jewish Committee. Speaking at an
interfaith meeting in Schenactady,
N.Y., he said "The fact that this
consultation was held for the first
time in the headquarters of the
World Council of Churches and at
the formal invitation of its general
secretary, the Rev. Dr. Eugene
Carson Blake . . . signified that
the World Council and world Jew-
ish relationships moved from pre-
viously casual, intermittent con-
versations held in international
hotel rooms onto a new plateau
