`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-
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

and to feel responsible for their
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
