Hasidic Links With Presen t Generation,
interpretive Skills Mark Hanuka Event

Notable links of the Hasidic ap-
peals with the reactions of the
present generation emphasize the
p,resentations to be made Wednes-
day evening; at Ford Auditorium,
at the annual Hanuka Hasidic
Concert.
The appearance of Dr. Chaim
Potok, editor of the Jewish Publi-
cation Society of America, as key-
note speaker, adds significance to
the event because of Dr. Potok's
interpretive novel, "The Chosen,"
which drew best seller attention
to the Hasidic theme. „ -
A special message from the
Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Mena-
chem M. Schneersohn, will be
read at the concert.
The event will honor the lib-
e7fated Russian Jews. Dr._ Herbert

-

H. Paper, professor of linguistics
and Near Eastern studies at the
University of Michigan, will accept
the presentation on their behalf.
Abraham Lachmanovitch,
recent emigre from the Soviet
Union, his wife Ruchla and their
DI-year-old - son Zilik will be
guests of the concert. He was
just united with his cousin in
Detroit whom he hadn't seen
since his childhood.

Rabbi Eli Lipsker will direct 50
Hasidic singers, musicians and
dancers. These singers have issued
seven records of Chabad melodies,
composed during the past two
centuries.

Charles E. Feinberg, chairman

6 Rabbis Appeal f or ZOA Slate

NEW YORK (ZINS)—Six leading
American rabbis joined in urging
their colleagues across the coun-
try to support ZOA Slate No. 1 in
the elections of delegates to the
28th World Zionist Congress.
The message, sent to rabbis of
all branches of Judaism, was
signed by Rabbi Leon Feuer, To-
ledo; Rabbi Irving Lehrman,
Miami Beach; Rabbi Irving Miller,
Woodmere, N.Y.; Rabbi Max Nuss-
baum, Hollywood, Calif.; Rabbi
Baruch Silverstein, Brooklyn; and
Rabbi Joseph P. Sternstein, Ros-
lyn, N.Y.
"The ZOA is the historic force
which has mobilized public opin-
ion in support of the establishment
and sustenance of the state of
Israel," the message stated. "The
security and development of Is-
rael is an all-consuming concern
of the ZOA, which in the process
of building a bridge between the
United States and Israel has pro-
jected American ideals to the
Israeli people."
The spiritual leaders were asked
to vote for 20A—Slate No. 1, and
to exert their influence in its be-
half in the pending congress elec-
tion.
Ballots were mailed this week by
the American Arbitration Associa-
tion to the 725,000 enrolled Zionists
to choose the majority of the 152
American voting delegates to the
Zionist Congress to be held in
Jerusalem next month.
The postal balloting, it was an-
nounced by Rabbi Israel Miller,
president of the American Zionist
Federation, is proceeding in ac-
cordance with the ,clecision of the
congress tribunal in Jerusalem
which ruled that a mail ballot was
valid after it was challenged by
two organizations within the AZF,
the ZOA and the United Zionist
R evisionists of America.
Six slates are listed on the bal-
lot. The mail ballot will elect 83
of the 152 American voting dele-
gates -according to the plan upheld
by the Zionist tribunal. The other
69 delegates, 45 per cent of the

American total, have been allo-
cated to the various Zionist group-
ings according to their member-
ship strength.

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Saltzman, the first cantor to leave

The best part of New Year's Eve dinner at the St. Regis
just might be staying for breakfast.

Mr. and Mrs. Dorfman, the
hypothetical couple shown here in
the not-so-hypothetical St. Regis
bed, are demonstrating that
when the New Year's Eve party is
over and it's time to go home,
you don't have to.

New Year's special plans (call us
