Inn, was occasion to recall
the celebrants' vital roles in
Yiddish educational and
other Jewish cultural activi-
ties as well as devoted ef-
forts in Zionism and Israeli
causes.

The Friedmans were
married Nov. 21, 1925, in
Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Mrs. Friedman, the former
Sarah Weisman, and her
husband were born in
Biala, near Brest Litovsk,
Poland.
The economic insecurities
that were created by the an-
ti-Semitic humiliations im-
posed on Polish Jewry by
the Pilsudski government's
anti-Jewish legislative and
social bigotries compelled
the young couple to seek
haven elsewhere. Sarah
went to Detroit where she
joined members of her fam-
ily, and Morris settled in
Argentina. After a two-year
lapse the couple fulfilled a
love pact, met in Buenos
Aires to be married. Soon
thereafter they left for De-
troit to make their home
here for nearly the entire
half century of their mar-
ried life.

THE FRIEDMANS

here and appeared in a num-
ber of Yiddish plays.
Mrs. Friedman rendered
untiring and devoted serv-
ices to the Book Fairs of the
Jewish Center for 24 years
and was among the major
activists in popularizing
Yiddish-literary works at
these functions.
On the occasion of the
60th anniversary of the
death of Y L. Peretz, Mrs.
Friedman delivered a series
of lectures with readings
and interpretations of his

ture has joined them in a
common interest in literary
activities, and noted Yiddish
writers, educators and lec-
turers made the Friedman
home their stopover on their
visits here. Their golden
wedding has therefore been
occasion- for many greetings
from a number of them, and
a message of greeting from
Chaim Grade, the noted
Yiddish poet and novelist, is
especially valued by the re-
cipients.
Mrs. Friedman, whose
Yiddish lectures and liter-
ary readings have popular-
ized her in many circles,
continues to read from Yid-
dish writers and to interpret
them before local groups, at
centers like the Home for
the Aged, at the Jewish Cen-
ter and on occasions in Flor-
ida and elsewhere.
She was secretary of the
Sholem Aleichem Institute
and for three years was a
Yiddish language teacher
there.
Like her husband, a lover
of the Yiddish theater, Mrs.
Friedman co-sponsored
many theatrical functions
