And yet, he said, the picture
was not entirely bleak: "There
is ferment and dissatisfaction
among the young, due to the
efect of the Israeli-Arab war of
1967, the predicament of Jews
in the Soviet Union and to the
recent experiences of the black
community which are being
translated into the Jewish com-
Prof. Max Hayward, Fellow of
St. Anthony's Oxford University
and visiting scholar at Columbia
University's Russian Institute, told
the meeting that Jewish writers
in the Soviet Union are condemned
to live "in a curious limbo, a kind
of psychological twilight in which
their relation to Russian society
has been deliberately distorted."
Despite the fact that the Jewish
contribution to Russian literature
of the century "is enormous, in
fact, central to the literature of
the country in the last 50 years,"
Prof. Hayward said, writers of
Jewish origin were being system-
atically suppressed, were perticu-
larly vulnerable to persecution and
had even paid- with their lives for
expressing opinions. He listed par-
ticularly, as the three giants of the
century, Boris Pasternak, the poet
Ossip Mandelstamm and the author
Taking part in the panel discus-
sions were authors Maurice Samuel
and Elie Wiesel. Samuel said that
?:go the Soviet Union the Yiddish



writer is compelled to become
part of the system of emasculation
and obliteration of Yiddish."
Wiesel said that Jewish writers
in the 1930's had the choice of re-
maining in Russia or leaving.
"Most chose Russia because they
thought they could bring concepts
of Judaism and communism to-
gether. They were wrong. Even
those who tried to live as Com-
munists died as Jews."

NEW YORK (JTA)—Bnai Brith
presented its 1970 Jewish Heritage
Award for "excellence in Jewish
literature" to the late Soviet writer
Isaac Babel. The award was pre-
sented to Nathalie Babel, the
author's daughter, at the annual
meeting of Bnai Brith's national
commission on adult Jewish educa-
tion at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
Babel, who was imprisoned by
Soviet officials in 1939 and died
while in 'custody, is the first per-
son to be chosen for the Bnai Brith
award posthumously. The Jewish
service organization also presented
the first Bnai Brith Book Award,
a $500 prize given for a single out-
standing work on Judaism or Jew-
ish life published during the pre-
ceding year, to Ronald Sanders'
"The Downtown Jews," which de-
scribes Jewish immigration to and
life on New York's lower East Side.
Prof. Leonard J. Fein, associate
director of the MIT-Harvard Joint
Center for Urban Studies, told the
Bnai Brith meeting that large num-
bers of Jews in the United States
are ignorant of Jewish tradition,
history, precepts, customs and
others issues involving Judaism.
Prof. Fein based his conclusions
on a continuing study of the chang-
ing Jewish community in the Bos-
ton area and information gathered
from lecturing to Jewish groups
throughout the country.
