New Book Details Life of Moses Mendelssohn

NEW YORK — The most
significant and creative pe-
riod of Jewish life in Central
Europe encompassed ap-
proximately 200 years —
from 1740 to 1940. It opened
with Moses Mendelssohn,
Who, more than any other
individual, enabled Euro-
pean Jews to move from the
ghetto into the mainstream
of European culture.
This month Viking Press
will publish "Moses Men-
delssohn: Selections From
His Writings," edited and
translated by Eva Jospe,
with an introduction by
Alfred Jospe.
Many of the translated
passages appear for the first
time in English. The selec-
tions, arranged by topic,
give particular emphasis to

Mendelssoh-n's views on
freedom of thought, separa-
tion of church and state,
and the distinction between
religious practice or law and
religious belief.

In addition, many of the
excerpts throw light on
Mendelssohn's personal
life, on his friendships
with great figures of the
period, and on the life of
Jews at that time.

As revealed by the multi-
faceted correspondence he
held with churchmen, play-
wrights, philosophers, and
professors, the largely self-
taught. Mendelssohn was a
fascinating and colorful per-
sonality.
Living in Berlin by suffer-
ance and not by right, he
dared to criticize Frederick

Strike Closes Chemical Plant

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A
new eruption of labor dis-
putes forced the shutdown
of the petro-chemical indus-
try's plant in the Haifa Bay
area Sunday.
In Haifa, 450 petrochemi-
cal workers who have been
on a work slowdown in a
dispute over wages were
furloughed indefinitly by
management. The workers
disregarded a Labor Court
order to resume their nor-
mal work routine.
Last week. they blocked
shipments of products out
of the Haifa plant. Manage-
ment shut the plant down
today and said it might sue
the employes for damages.

The dispute, which is
not supported by Histad.-
rut, began--when manage-
ment declined to pay the
workers pioduction bo-
nuses called for in their
contract when production
exceeds an agreed quota.
The management claimed
that production at the
plant dropped because of
the large decline in orders
and there was no produc-
tion above quotas.

Meanwhile, Israeli news-
papers, radio and television

of Israeli archaeologists has
unearthed a family tomb 27
centuries old on the site
where the Bnai Brith Jeru-

The skeletal remains of
some 20 bodies were found
in a sealed, two-chamber
burial cave on the slope that
fronts the western side of
Jerusalem's Old City Wall,
between the Jaffa Gate and
Mt. Zion.
Clay jugs and a Hebrew
seal bearing the name
"Chaniehl bat Menachem"
were also found in the
sealed cave. Anthropological
tests indicated that the bur-

,Naguib Survives
37 Political Foes

NEW YORK — In an in-
terview published by the
Cairo weekly Ruz al-Yusset,,
General Mohammad Na-
guih, the original leader of
the 1952 Republican offi-
cer's revolt, said in retros-
pect that "the revolution of
July 23, 1952 inflicted
greater harm on the Egyp
tian people than it did
good."
Naguib, who was over-
thrown in 1954 by Gamal
Abdel Nasser and spent
time under house arrest
until the administration of
Anwar Sadat, added: "If I
had to relive the events of
1952, I wouldn't have agreed
to assume the leadership of
the revolution . . ."
Naguih said he had drawn
up a list of 43 persons who
had done him wrong, and
since than had been able to
attend the funerals of 10 of
them and witness the de-
mise in one form or another_
of 27 others.
