Klein Appoints Executive Committee

Alfred Klein. president of the
Flint Jewish Community Council,
has announced the appointment of
the 1970-71 executive committee.
In making the appointments,
Klein stated, "We are in historic
times, and our Council can take
great strides in promulgating
greater understanding of our pur-
poses. We must face and take
action on a series of challenges:
Israel's continued existence; inter-
pretation and implementation of
basic Judaic concepts in our local

community; communication with
our youth; service to our seniors;
Jewish education; and continuing
cultural and social programs.
"In order to meet these demands,
we need cohesive knowledgeable
leadership in our Council. One of
the privileges of the president is
the appointment of committee
chairmen and members at large to
the executive committee. The
selection of these is most imprtant,
and I give a great deal of thought
to each recommendation. The exis-

tence of Israel and the hate of
those who would destroy her and
the Jews of the world is also our
problem. The decisions we make
this year can well affect our future
generations. The ability of our
Council to function and our entire
future lies in the decisions these
appointees will make. We need a
team that will work together for
the good of our entire community."
The executive committee for
1970-71 consists of Klein and the

"Divorcing" by Susan Taubes, a
recently published Random House
novel, is just that: it deals with
divorce and divorcing and with
the course of events in a woman's
life as she experiences various
other men after an unexplainable
departure from her husband.
Two peculiar characters are
there: the wife who can get and
does all she wants; the yielding
It's a story about Jewish char-
acters and you read such terms as
a "cynical Jewish shrug" (one
wonders what kind of a shrug it
could possibly be). a character
who "claimed he could smell a
ic Jews" and
jemwiis"r nonsense.
But there is much more to this
novel than these language specu-
lations. The author takes her hero-
ine, Sophie Blind through a series
of reminiscences. She takes her
back to Hungary, to the pre-Hitler
and the Nazi era, the dangers
that were faced by Jews, the flight
to the United States.
The novel thereupon turns into
a family chronicle and an experi-
ence that is based on the histori-
cal happenings.
Thus fiction is linked with re-
ality—and the latter undoubtedly
is the author's personal account of
her own life as a youngster, nr
knowledge of a family's actual ex-
periences as recounted to her.
Born in Budapest, Susan Taubes
was educated in this country. She
has written and edited books and is
skilled in her -profession.
The narrative reads well even
if the Jewish link might arouse
a negative reaction. The story has
special merit in the description of
Sophie Blind's relationship with
her children after the divorce—her
admission to her young son that
she had relations with men, the
boy's explanation of what he bears

from others in school about sex. In
that narrative there is a lesson in
family relations, in the aftermath
of "divorcing," in the problems
that emerge from divorcing.

At a dinner in their home, Dr.
and Mrs. Marvin Tulpan of Eldor-
ado Dr. announced the engagement

The Hungarian family that is de-
picted here, Sophie's links to that
Jewish group that later was con-
fronted by Nazism, creates the as-
pect of historicity that gives "Div-
orcing" historical interest. That
aspect enriches the novel's merits.
