It is believed that this is
one of the few instances of
Church recognition of the
thesis advanced by Dr. Zei-
tlin.

creed it is not stated that
the Jews crucified Jesus."
In reference to the exist-
ence of the two Sanhedrin,
the book review states:
"Zeitlin's discussion of
Jesus' trial is enlightening.
He, for example, distin-
guished two types of San-
hedrin, the religious San-
hedrin which tried religious
offenders and was not con-
cerned with Jesus, and an-
other Sanhedrin which was
a state court and tried polit-
ical offenders." Quoting Zei-
tlin, the book review relates
the following information:

Synagogue.
The program, which will

American Jewish contempo-
rary composers, is being
presented by the Park Av-
enue Synagogue and the
JWB Jewish Music Council.

Referring to the charges
against the Jews relating to
the Crucifixion, the book re-
view quoted Zeitlin as fol-
lows:
"Since the policy of the
early Christians was not to
antagonize the Romans,
they tried to put the blame
for the Crucifixion upon
the Jews" . . . and points
out that the Romans were
responsible for the cruci-
fixion of Jesus, that Chris-
tians should reinstate the
Apostles' Creed: "In this

The events will mark the
retirement of Cantor David
J. Putterman, Hazzan of the
Park Avenue Synagogue
since 1933. For the past 32
years, under Hazzan Putter-
man's direction, the Park
Avenue Synagogue has com-
missioned 69 noted Ameri-
can composers to compose
new liturgical musical
works for the Friday Eve-
ning Service. These works
have had their world pre-
mieres at the synagogue
each May.
In 1971, the JWB Jewish
Music Council awarded a
special citation to Cantor
Putterman for his efforts
on behalf of the commis-
sion of new liturgical mu-
sical services by American
Jewish composers.

At the special service on
the evening of May 7, the
program will be drawn from
past workS which were com-
missioned by the syn-
agogue.

would have destroyed true
Christianity after having
wiped out Judaism," ad-
vancing Zeitlin's thesis
that the Christians had
grown out of the Jews, and
if the Jews are destroyed
so go the Christians.
The review concludes with
the following: "Jewish self-
evaluation and Jewish eval-
uation of Christianity are
important for us, because
through them we get to
know ourselves and the
sources of our faith better."

Rabbinical Student
Works With Deaf

NEW YORK — Miss
Lynn Gottlieb, a rabbinical
student who works with the
deaf, is believed to be the
only person serving as a
rabbi for the deaf in New
York City.
She holds workshops at
the New York Society for
the Deaf and conducts serv-
ices and teaches at Temple
Beth Or of the Deaf in Hol-
lis, N.Y.
Utilizing an earlier voca-
tion — she has been ,involved
in the theater and puppetry
since childhood — 27-year-
old Miss Gottlieb gestures
and talks with deliberate
pronunciation while using
sign language.
She is a graduate of He-
brew University in Jerusa-
lem.
According to the New
York Times, she began
working with the deaf three
years ago after a fellow rab-
binical student took her to a
service at Beth Or.

Simha Holzberg, for . spe-
cial contributions to so-
ciety and the state; Dr.
Ezra Korine, for the same;
and Rabbi Eliezer Yehuda
Waldinberg for Torah lit-
erature.
A controversy developed
last month when it was an-
nounced that Kirshenbaum
had been nominated for the
Israel Prize in the field of
television. A number of
Likud and National Reli-
gious Party MKs objected
because they disliked Kir-
shenbaum's satirical TV
program "Nikui Rosh"
(Brain Washing), a big hit
on Israeli television which
stepped on many toes.
