Seder Makers,
Rabbi Thanked

Editor, The Jewish News:
This year again let us
commend Rabbi Solomon
Gruskin, Mr. and Mrs. Mor-
ris Dorn, the Ladies of Oak
Park Lodge and Cooperative
Council of the League of
Jewish Women who made ar-
rangements for a beautiful
third seder April 19 for 250
patients brought in from
Ypsilanti State Hospital, La-
peer State Home and Train-
ing Center, Wayne County
General Hospital and many
o;rho live in the inner city.
It was held at the Labor
Zionist Institute.
Cantor Hyman Adler, Hal
Gordon, Max Sosin and many
patients entertained.
It is wonderful to see the
affection the patients all
have for Rabbi Gruskin. He
is like a father to them and
knows them all by name.
A hearty thanks to every-
one who participated and
helped brighten the lives of
these patients; their enthu-
siasm was heart-warming and
It is a wonderful gesture
and mitzva to help people
remember and not to forget
their heritage.

Poverty Article
Shows 'Not All
Jews Are Rich'

Editor, The Jewish News:
This letter refers to the
April 13 and 20 article by
Charlotte Dubin regarding
poverty in the Jewish corn-
It is an excellent article
and long overdue. It is time
we all took a good look at
the fact that not all Jews are
rich and have all the money.
Perhaps we have learned
better than others how to
suffer silently. I would hope
that more of this type article
will teach the needy of the
public programs that are
available to all our citizens.
Perhaps with someone act-
ing on their behalf who
knows their way around
the bureaucratic procedures,
much of the shame in making

application can be reduced if
not eliminated.
There is one small point
the article does overlook
which I have seen through
personal observations among
some of the elderly.
Some of these elderly, not
all, do have ample resources
but because of previous
fears, habits, attitudes do
give the appearance of pov-
erty. I have run myself
ragged providing cab service
and other services for some
old relatives only to find out
upon their demise about
hidden bank accounts, stocks,
etc., running into thousands.
Sincerely yours,

The show is sponsored by the

Dr. Harold Daitch is chair-
Prof. Herbert Marshall as-
sembled the Soviet-Jewish
art collection during eight
years that he spent studying
and working in the Soviet
Union. He obtained permis-
sion from the Soviet govern-
ment to take the collection
to London in 1965, where Sol-
omon Gershov, one of the
artists whose works are in
the collection, was hailed as
"one of the outstanding paint-
ers of a generation."
Marshall then came to
America where he became
professor of performing arts
at Southern Illinois Univer-
sity and director of its Cen-
ter for Soviet and East Euro-
pean Studies. His collection
was shown in Boston and
Washington, but this is the
first showing in the Detroit

Prof. Mark Mirsky of City
College of New York may
have drawn upon personal
experiences of a rabbi, his
wife, the synagogue, the
Torah scrolls, in his novel,
"Blue Hill Ave.," published
by Bobbs-Merrill Co. The
reader will, however, wonder
about the uniqueness of the
hilarious story.
The rebetzin is not alto-
gether normal. The rabbi is
naive. We are told about the
holy scrolls and its cover
with cigarette burns.
Who ever heard of the

Torah or the cover being D ltes Set for July
affected by cigarette burns?
Does the Torah reader smoke
while he reads?
Other factors are question.
able, in a story that other-
wise has entertaining factors
and has continuity.
While the description is of
an old-fashioned house of
worship in a Boston ghetto
area, it hardly clicks with
genuine synagogue experi-
ence. Perhaps Mirsky's Blue
Hill Synagogue is of a type
we could not be aware of.
We are introduced to many
Jewish practices and won-
dered about the haman-
tashen on Purim.
