`JewsofRussia'PaperbackText Stephen Wih-on Takes
Issued for Students of IJIIS Janet Eagle as Bride

The United Hebrew Schools, re-
sponding to the mounting call for
curricula on Soviet Jewry, has is-
sued a 55-page illustrated booklet,
"The Jews of Russia," for use by
the upper grades of the element-
ary department.
In a foreword to the paperback
text, Albert Elazar, UHS superin-
tendent, credited Dr. Naphtali
Wiesner, educational consultant of
the Hebrew Schools, for suggest-
ing the booklet and for compiling
its contents. Others who helped
prepare the material were Mrs.
Lillian Rosinger and Richard Gold.
The booklet deals with the Jews
of Russia; past and present, and
shows how their future is linked
with the Jewish communities of
Israel and the United States.
Elazar pointed out that the
study of Soviet Jewry is in line
with the central aim of Jewish
education: "to help enrich and
enlarge the total personality of
the American-Jewish child by in-
fluencing and developing his
uniquely Jewish qualities and re-
sponsibilities. It is essential to
encourage students to identify
with Jews wherever they are
and to feel responsible for their
fate."
Among the subjects dealt with
are life under the Czars and the
revolution; the various contribu-
tions of Russian Jewry—from Has-
idism to art, literature and sci-
ence—Jewish leaders in the Soviet
Union; Jewish cultural life in vari-

ous Soviet areas; and the contem-
porary plight of Soviet Jewry.
Although the booklet is in Eng-
lish, a number of Hebrew terms
and names are inserted. Stamps,
drawings and photographs illus-
trate historical eras in the Soviet
Union. The writing is scaled to the
needs of young people, and at its
conclusion, the booklet stresses the
need for youth to join in the pro-
tests on behalf of Soviet Jewry:
"We, as Jews, must remember
that wherever there are injustices
in the world, we have a responsi-
bility to speak out against them.
Perhaps some day the Russian
government will hear the cries of
millions of people and grant Jews
complete freedom."

Hebrew Institute for the Deaf, and
was under the impression that I
was fully aware of the plight of
the Jewish deaf, but I must admit
that this was a shattering experi-
ence.
At this convention I learned that
the Jewish community and its lead-
ers have completely neglected and
ignored, through the years, the
Jewish deaf as though they didn't
exist.
There are no Jewish schools for
the deaf. There are no shules.
There are no trained rabbis for
the deaf.
New York City alone has 4,000
Jewish deaf population who are
lost to Judaism due to religious
ignorance.
Many of our deaf intermarry.
According to Msgr. Houriban
of Newark, the church takes an
active interest in the spiritual
guidance of their deaf society.
All church members are taxed
to meet the high cost of educat-
ing the deaf. They recognize the
need and answer the call.
At- this convention I met Jewish
deaf people who cried out for reli-
gious guidance and education for
themselves, their children, their
grandchildren.
A Jewish School for the Deaf
was started five years ago, serv-
icing all states, Canada and Israel.
Why must this school go begging
to be maintained? Why must it con-
tinually plead for funds to get our
Jewish children out of Catholic
schools and into our own?
Let us act now and give these
children what we lavish so freely
upon our hearing children, a Jew-
ish education.
