Israel's Theater Museum Provides A Rich Legacy

BY ISRAEL GUR

Director of the Theatrical
Museum
and Archives in Jerusalem

The first step in setting
u? a theatrical museum and
archives in Jerusalem was a
public committee of leading
figures in the theatrical and
literary world.

The late Zalman Zilber-

zweig, an authority on the
Yiddish theatre and author
of a many-volumed lexicon,
was asked to transfer his
rich archives to Jersualem.
Apart from the large Zil-
berzweig and "Bamah" col-
lections, (Israeli theatrical
magazine), material pours
in regularly from actors and
producers both in Israel and
abroad. Among such mate-

•ial is the archives of the
late Yitzhak Nozhik, one of
the pillars of the now de-
funct satirical theatre
"Hamatate", and of the late
Meir Margalit, one of the
greatest Israeli actors.

The Jerusalem Theatri-
cal Museum and Archives
was opened in May 1973. It
is housed in an eight-room
building belonging to the
Jerusalem Municipality.
The main component of the
institution is its library,
which includes many rare
volumes.

The other components of
the Archives are thousands
of files of producers, actors,
playwrights, critics - and
theatrical research workers.
The files deal with current
performances by Israeli

Congressmen Voice Appeals
on Behalf of Jailed Soviet Jew

WASHINGTON — Mem-
bers of Congress have ap-
pealed to the Soviet Union,
on behalf of Dr. Mikhail
Stern, who was arrested
following his son's request
for an exit visa for Israel.
In a letter to Soviet Presi-
dent Nikolai Podgorny,
Michigan Congressman Wil-
liam Brodhead (D.-17th Dis-
trict) urged that Stern's
"sentence be commuted to
the one year that he has al-
ready served in prison and
that he and his family be
permitted to emigrate to
Israel."
It also was reported here
that a delegation of 14 Sena-
tors, including Jacob Javitz
(R.-N.Y.), Hugh Scott (R.-
Pa) and Charles Percy (R.-
Ill.) were approached on
their Moscow trip by a
group of Jewish activists
who asked them to seek a
reprieve for Mikhail Y. Lev-
ievr, a Soviet Jew who has
been sentenced to death on
charges of bribe-taking.
Meanwhile, in Tel Aviv,
