The event will feature the
presentation of a play,
based on the works of Sho-
lem Aleichem, as a celebra-
tion of the 100th anniver-
sary of the Yiddish theater.
The founder of the Yid-
dish theater was Abraham
Goldfaden. From his crea-
tive efforts in Romania
there emerged one of the
world's most notable theatr-
ical achievements whose
high standards were emu-
lated globally.
Goldfaden conceived the
idea for a Yiddish theater
after he came in contact'
with the Broder Singers in
Romania. The group sang
and acted out Yiddish mel-
odies, among them Gold-
faden's. According to the
Encyclopaedia Judaica:
"He then conceived the
idea that the dramatic ef-
fect of the songs and imper-
sonations could be height-
ened if they would be
combined with prose dia-
logues and woven into an in-
teresting plot. He gathered

corded his performances in
Jassy, Goldfaden engaged
wandering minstrels and
cantors' assistants as addi-
tional actors, toured other
Romanian cities, including
Bucharest, and then went to
Odessa. By 1880 his troupe
was giving performances
throughout Russia and his
phenomenal success was
encouraging theatrical ven-
tures by other enterprising
actors and librettists.
"The Yiddish theater ex-
panded and flourished until
1883, when the Russian gov-
ernment, fearing this new
mass medium, banned-per-
formances in Yiddish. This
action compelled authors,
actors, and producers to
migrate to other lands. Yid-
dish theaters were estab-
lished in Paris, London, and
New York.
"In 1887 Goldfaden was
invited by some of his ac-
tors who had moved to
New York to join them,
but when he arrived he
encountered severe compe-
tition from producers who
had preceded him and
from scriptwriters who
were even more prolific
than he.
"He found Europe more
congenial and returned to
produce and direct perform-
ances of his plays in Lon-
don, Paris, and Lemberg.
He returned to the United
States in 1903 and spent his
last five years in New
York."

Udall, Carter
Aides Join Study
on Arms for Israel

WASHINGTON (ZINS)
— A panel of arms-control
experts, including foreign
policy advisers to Presiden-
tial candidates Morris Udall
and Jimmy Carter, issued a
study in which they called
for unilateral U.S. restric-
tions on various sophisti-
cated arms supplies to Is-
rael.
The report, which called
for a ban on the shipment of
Pershing ground-to-ground
missiles to Israel, also sug-
gested that the United
States stop supplying Israel
certain arms already ap-
proved, such as the Lance
short-range missile and so-
phisticated hardware for
Israeli aircraft.
"The United States and
the Soviet Union should
agree to consult with each
other before undertaking
major shipments of arms to
the Middle East," the report
said. But it went on to sug-
gest that the United States
should unilaterally issue a
"moratorium," on certain
sophisticated weapons bar-
ring such U.S.-Soviet coop-
eration.

Tickets for the Yiddish
Theater Ensemble perform-
ances are available at Dex-
ter-Davison Market, Boren-
stein's Book Store, or by
calling the LZA office,
851-1606.
