'Land of the Dragon' Coming Here

`Jew in America'
Topic of Student
Writing Contest

Junior and senior high school
students in the community are
eligible to win cash prizes of $100
each for the best poem, essay and
short story on "The Jew in Amer-
ica," Steve Segall, chairman of
the writing contest conimittee,
announced.
Others on the committee are
Debbi Shulman, Jeff Richmond,
Mindy Ruzumna, Laurie Sendler.
Michael Edelman, Barbara Siegel
and Rhonna Sachs. Assisting the
committee is Joel Verbin of the
Jewish Center staff.
Judges will include community
leaders and students. Deadline
for entries is March 1. Rules can
be obtained from the Center group
services division, DI 1-4200.
Student planners will meet 7:30
p.m. Thursday in the Center to
receive copies of the rules and
registration forms. The movie
"Sound of Poetry" also will be
shown. Youth not on the commit-
tee but who are interested in see-
ing the movie, are invited.

The question of whether the
community is responsive to the
needs of youth will be explored
at a weekend seminar beginning
today under the sponsorship of
Habonim Labor Zionist Youth. The
discussion will open at 8 p.m. in
the Workmen's Circle Center, and
all youth are invited.
A panel will explore the sub-
ject, "Judaize/Radicalize," whose
tone was set in a resolution by
Habonim of North America. It was
felt that the community was un-
responsive to the needs if young
people and that it was responsible
for their alienation. Also expressed
was the view that Jewish educa-
tion was substandard and that the
structure of the community was
undemocratic.
Speakers will include an au-

thor of the resolution, Rail Gold-
man, a member of the Habonim
movement's central committee,
from Chicago.
Others are Sherwood Sandweiss
of the American Jewish Commit-

tee; Rabbis Gerald Teller of Cong.

S h a a r e y Zedek and James I.
Gordon of Young Israel of Oak-
Woods, who teaches at the United
Hebrew High School; and Joel
Altus, formerly with the American
Jewish Congress and now a teach
er at the Hebrew High School

who claims to be a devout leftist.

in the seminar may obtain more

seventh grade. Among his special
interests are reading and painting.)

During Hanuka vacation, the
junior high students went roller
skating. We had a lot of fun, along
with our principal, Rabbi Werner,
Frank Leiderman and Dennis Eis-
enberg, who were kind enough to
accompany us.
Erev Hanuka, in addition to a
wonderful Hebrew musical play
put on by the third grade, grades
four through seven provided the
school and public with a Hanuka
art exhibition. The fifth grade
formed different clay objects. The
sixth grade made sculptures from
wood and toothpicks. And the
seventh grade created a large
mural with scenes of the Hanuka
story.
We are also planning for the
junior high a shabaton, including
davening, eating, singing and
learning together an entire Shabat.

The editor, Yossi Klein of Brook-
lyn, said the new publication was
developed to be "the national voice
of the Jewish high school activist"
and to be a forum for the views
of a Jewish Affairs Commission
which, he said, was started last
September as an independent or-
ganization for Jewish high school
students. The leadership of the
group comes from Orthodox stu-
dents in day high schools in the
New York area.
He told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency that the commission now
has representation from more than
25 yeshiva high schools and pub-
lic schools in the New York metro-
politan area. He said its purpose
was "to educate Jewish youth to
the problems of Jews, with em-
phasis on Soviet Jewry, and to
translate this education into mean-
ingful action."
