THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Two New Features • • •

There is another field in community re-
lationships that freqently calls for guidance
and advice. In the area of taxation, of plan-
ning handling of estates and of gift giving,
as part of the tax scheme, the advice of ex-
perts can be of great help to individuals, to
families, to affected groups.
As an aid in this area, The Jewish News
will introduce a monthly column, "Taxes
and Your Future." Knowledgeable experts
associated with the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion-United J e wish Charities Endowment
Fund tax advisory committee will assist in
providing answers to questions that may be
posed on matters involving taxes.

Jewish News readers submitting ques-
tions and posing problems in both areas —
the social aspects and the tax problems —
will be given all possible aid in replies
that will apear in the two columns.

Xerox University Micro-
films, of Ann Arbor, has pub-
lished an edition of a number
of independent translations
of the Pentateuch into the
Judeo-Persian language (Per-
sian written in the Hebrew
alphabet) compiled and edit-
ed by Dr. Herbert H. Paper,
professor of Near Eastern
languages and linguistics at
the University of Michigan.
In addition to two printed
texts included in this edition
— one from Constantinople
(dated 1546) and one from
Jerusalem (dated 1904) — a
number of manuscripts are
included from a variety of
collections in Cincinnati, Je-
rusalem, London, New York
and Rome. The earliest man-
uscript dates to the year 1319.
Each page of this edition
contains all the versions of

Samples of Problems to Be Tackled

Already confronted with
some of the problems that
may arise, Jewish News read-
ers will be interested in sam-
ples of the questions that are
emerging.
In matters involving taxes,
contributions, philanthropic
involvements, some of the
questions that have arisen
are:
The extra tax benefits
from gifts of securities and
other properties.
Charitable gift annuities
and guaranteed incomes.
Philanthropic aims thru
insurance.
The role of private foun-
dations.
In the social sphere, The
Jewish News has already re-
ceived a number of ques-
tions. Some of them, and the
answers provided by the
Jewish Family and Children's
Service Experts are:
My 9-year-old daughter
constantly argues with me
about such things as bedtime,

the food I prepare, cleaning
her room, etc. I have always
tried to reason with her, dis-
cussing with her why I set
rules I have but she continues
to resent my authority. C. L.
Dear C. L.,
While all parents should
strive to be fair and reason-
able in handling their chil-
dren, I think you are allow-
ing your daughter to be too
much of a participant in the
"rules" you set. If discus-
sions lead to a feeling that
she has a right to debate with
you on what is reasonable
and what is not (and perhaps
win the debate) your author-
ity is reduced. There are cer-
tain decisions a parent makes
which should be discussed
with the child but there are
many others which should be
understood and accepted by
the child, needing no explana•
tion. It is not necessary, for
example, to explain to a 9-
year-old why she should keep
her room clean.

Social and family problems often call
for guidance. The need for experts to advise
us is a recognized responsibility of people
who live together in a unified community,
of neighbor-to-neighbor and social scientist
to his fellow man.
Many Jewish aspects affect relationships
between parents and children, man and
wife, citizens to the community.
As an aid to solving many such prob-
lems, The Jewish News will introduce, start-
ing with next week's issue, the "Adivse
Me . . . " column. Experts will answer many
of the questions that have already come up
for consideration.
The trained experts in social problems
who are associated with the Jewish Family
and Children's Service, of which Samuel
Lerner is the executive director, will assist
in answering these problems.

The total collection of ma-

to some 5,700 pages and pre-

Persian language, as well as

of the Pentateuch transla-
tions and their sources with-

Judeo-speaking Jews over a
range of more than seven
centuries.

Lately I have been having
strong feelings of wanting to
really hurt p e o p 1 e, even
strangers, for no reason. Peo-
ple have always thought of
me as a nice, easy-going
kind of guy and these feel-
ings are getting to me. When
I was a kid, I had some emo•
tional problems, but I out-
grew them. Do you have any
comments? Fearful
Dear Fearful,
I suspect that rather than
outgrowing your problem,
you have tried to bury them.
The current feelings you
have may well represent
some of the unresolved prob-
lems trying to surface again.
Your wanting to hurt people
indicates that you have a lot
of turmoil inside of you and
you need professional help
to deal with this. You can
get the names of psychiatrists
from your doctor or contact
the Jewish Family and Chil-
dren's Service. They will be
able to help you.

Urgent need of assistance
in United Jewish Appeal
tasks in behalf of Russian
Jewry was emphasized by
Paul Zuckerman, g e n e r al
chairman of UJA, in a state-
ment released on the eve of
Rosh Hashana. Zuckerman
declared:
"Rosh Hashana heralds a
time which brings each Jew,
regardless of his distance
from his faith during the
year, closer to his heritage
and to his people.
"We experience this mix-
ture of feelings as we view
the plight of Jews in the
Soviet Union. We are grateful
and joyous that already

more than 65,000 have immi-
grated to Israel, and that as
many as 40.000 more are ex-
pected to join them in the
coming year. Simultaneously,
we observe with anguish and
anger the situation of those
still trapped in Soviet prisons
and those 110,000 Jews who
have applied for exit visas
and have not yet received
them.
"For those who have
already come we must assure
fulfillment of their dream
. . . a roof over their heads
. retraining to provide
them with new skills . . .
education for their children.
"The spirit of the New
Year demands renewed de-

munity of Vegreville, which
in 1931 had a population of
82, officially ended its ex-
istence when the property of
its Israel synagogue was sold
recently and the synagogue
demolished.

A special service was held
in the synagogue at which
surviving members of the
community were joined by
oldtimers, their descendants
and friends in a re-union.
After the participants heard
a brief history of the com-
munity since 1905, services

were offical visitors from the
Alberta Provincial Archives.
Vegreville's first Jewish set-
tler arrived in 1906. Pro-
prietor of a livery barn, he
also delivered the mail. By
1919, the Jews were organiz-
ed as a community and built
a synagogue.

The demise of the com-
munity is part of the general
decline in recent years of
very small Jewish communi-
ties in North America, in
general, and in Western
Canada, in particular.

"Soviet Jews have risked
their economic security, their
safety, their very lives, in
their efforts to rejoin their
people. Dare we disappoint
them? Could our conscience
bear the tragic thought that,
because of any lack of funds,
this historic moment might
be lost?

solve to meet the challenge
of the new year. Together,
we can insure that the prom-
ise of freedom becomes fact.

our heritage; by keeping our
promises to our fellow Jews.
We must supply the means
that will give Soviet Jews the
homecoming their heroism
deserves.
