Jewish Communal Structure
Is Outlined in Children's Book

By ALLEN A. WARSEN

"For One Another" by
Raymond A. Zwerin, pub-
lished by the Union of
'American Hebrew Congre-
gations and the American
Association for Jewish Edu-
cation, is a textbook in-
tended for the "pupils of the
target ages" and is aimed at
imparting in children a
knowledge of the Jewish
philanthropic, social and
educational institutions and
to prepare them to partici-
pate in Jewish communal
life and work.
To use the author's termi-
nology, the book performs
"the dual function of child
education: exploration and
experience at the child's
stage of life and preparation
for exploration and experi-
ence in maturity."
The book is composed of
11 chapters covering many
aspects of Jewish communal
concerns. Each chapter in-
cludes suggestions for stu-
dent activities and is
preceded by a drawing re-
lated to the subject matter.
The chapters contain
selections of famous quo-
tations in English and
Hebrew taken from the
vast Jewish literature. For
instance, the chapter
"Jewish Big Brothers,"
among others, includes
these quotations: ". . . Am
I my brother's keeper?"
(Genesis 4:9) and "„
Behold, how good and how
pleasant it is for brethern
to dwell together in un-
ity." (Psalm 133:1).
"As to the format, each
chapter centers around a
particular problem or event
in which Jews, dither as a
group in families, or as in-
dividuals, might become in-
volved and the way in which
the various arms of the Jew-

ENGAGED

ish community might come
to their aid."
The chapter on Jewish
education contains a chart
of educational agencies —
their names, sponsors, affi-
liates, and publications. For
example, the "Merkos L'In-
yonay Chinuch," founded in
1942, is sponsored by the
Lubavitcher Rebbe and his
hasidim. It services day
schools, camps, Chabad Lu-
bavitch houses, and 20 re-
gional offices worldwide. It
publishes books and pam-
phlets in 14 languages.
The chart, however, left
out teacher seminaries, rab-
binical schools, colleges, and
universities. These are em-
bodied in the "Appendix"
and are arranged in the
form of a directory.
"For One Another," Writ-
ten in a simple narrative
form, is interesting, impres-
sive and absorbing.

TORONTO (JTA) — A
Canadian student sociolo-
gist, reporting on a study of
mixed marriage in Canada
and the United States, has
asserted that one out of five
Canadian Jews getting mar-
ried currently is marrying a
non-Jew.
According to a report re-
leased by Morton Weinfeld
to the Canadian Jewish
News, the 20 percent figure
compares with five percent
during World War II and 10
percent in 1965.
Weinfeld said that he was
surprised by one of his find-
ings which showed that
while mixed marriage rates
in both Canada and the U.
S. were growing, the mixed
marriage rate among U. S.
Jews was growing at a
faster rate than in Canada.
He said his data showed
that the rate of mixed mar-
riage in Canada was about
half the figure in the U. S.
which would make the lat-
ter figure around 40 per-
cent.

NEW YORK — Continu-
ing
sLeacly growth trend,
Bank Leumi Trust Co. of
New York reported a 1975
year-end increase of 28 per-
cent in total assets.
The bank's assets at year-
end 1975 totalled $782.7
million, as compared with
$611.5 million at the end of
1974. Deposits rose 27.4 per-
cent during 1975 from
$547.2 million to $697 mil-
lion.
Total capital funds now
exceed $35.1 million, includ-
ing capital notes and reserve
for loan 'losses, with share-
holders' equity increasing
almost 20 percent from
$19.2 million to $23 million.
In consideration of profit-
able operations and continue
ing future growth, a divi-
dend of 12.5 cents per share
was declared for the last
quarter bringing the total
dividend for 1975 to 47.5
dents per share.
