role is so often distorted, Prof. Moss' an-
alysis of the Jew, his sex attitudes, the re-
lationships with non-Jews, are of great mer-
it. Dr. Moss, in reference to "Heartbreak
Kid," for example, charges that the col-
laborators of the plot, Elaine May and Neil
Simon, "bypass the issue of Jewish appeal
in favor of standardized Hollywood comedy.
It is difficult to locate the wit and intelli-
gence in this movie that so many reviewers
were able to spot. The sensibility behind
it seems to be strictly 'show biz.' " Prof.
Moss then declares:
" 'Blume in Love,' Save the Tiger' and
`The Heartbreak Kid' illustrate, in their
various ways, Hollywood's failure to deal
w• he cultural roots of the very people
ouilt it, who shaped it and gave it
substance. Ironically, the closest approxi-
mation to a successful cinematic treatment
of Jewish American life is 'The Angel Le-
vine,' made in 1970 by Jan Kadar, a Czech
immigrant who could hardly speak English.
`Levine' went unhailed, unseen and, in
many quarters, unnoticed, but it has in-
finitely more integrity and sensitivity to
its subject than an overblown hate letter
like 'The Heartbreak Kid.' Despite an un-
even script, poor photography and Zero
Mostel, the movie manages to bring its
central characters, an elderly, impoverished
Jewish couple of European background,
miraculously to life. 'Levine' succeeds be-
cause of the informed compassion and quiet
warmth of Kadar's direction and of Ida
Kaminska's performance, a characteriza-
tion that, for once, justifies the old cliches,
`radiant' and `glowing.' Blume in Love,'
`Save the Tiger' and 'The Heartbreak Kid'
show that not only has there been no ad-
vance since 1970 in dealing with the Jewish
experience in this country, the movement
has been distinctly retrograde."

of a new regional road con-
necting Lake Kinneret with
Mevo Hama on the southern
Golan Heights is to be initi-
ated shortly by the Keren
Kayemet Leisrael (Jewish
National Fund). The two-lane
highway, which will cross
some of the steepest moun-
tain terrain, is expected to
be ready for traffic within
two years.

Books, stage characterizations, movie
depictions leave marks too serious to be
ignored, and it is important that the ex-
pose of misdirections, by concerned men
like Prof. Moss should receive due attention.

In problems posed by the synagogue and
those who direct its programs, in issues
involving the entertainment field, it is
vital that retrogressive factors should not
be ignored.
The entertainment field influences all,
regardless of creed. When Jewish roles are
distorted it is even more important that
Jews especially should be properly alerted
and realistically guided, else there can be
no defense against misrepresentations.

THE BEST FOR LESS!

'29tos129

The new year inevitably will be filled
with many problems. On the international
front we'll be periled and challenged. On
the home front much is emerging involving
the Jews, directly insofar as the Russian
and Israel situations are concerned; indi-
rectly in political, social, economic and ed-
ucational matters. The latter, especially,
will be filled with newly menacing dangers
involved in the emergence of the numerus
clausus.
In the internal ranks of Jewry there is
the factor affecting the status of the syna-
gogue, and its financial security can not be
ignored. That's why an abuse like gambling
for its support must be considered in all
seriousness.
Are the posed developments and con-
cerns exaggerations? Not if there is realism
in facing up to the year of many tensions.
Those who know the tensions will overcome
them; by ignoring them there is merely an
assurance of their perpetuation. Therefore
the need for pragmatism that should lead
to happiness for a year in which there is
a promise of unusual excitement.

sary as president of Yeshiva

sary Medal and with the New

guished Service.
The scroll, in part, cited
Dr. Belkin as "author,
scholar, educator and spiri-
tual architect . . . who with
inspiration and nobility epi-
tomized the Jewish heritage
on the soil of American
democracy."
The reception marked the
launching of a series of
events to be climaxed by a
national dinner in Dr. Bel-
' - in's honor Dec. 9 at the
