Delightful lianuka Fun Book'
Fills Great Need for Festival

Hanuka as a festival of jubilation provides fun for
children, lends itself to plays and recollections of the
historic events that marked the Maccabean triumph.
"Hanuka Fun Book" by David Adler (Bonim
Books of Hebrew Publishing Co.) fills a great need as a
provider of programming material and as a source
book for celebrations in the home as well as the
schools.
The illustrations, in all their impressiveness, sup-
plement the text for fullest observance of the festival
as well as the enjoyment of the guides to group as well
as individual participation in a fun-festival.
It was written and planned for children and it
becomes immediately evident that it is of as much use
for the elders as sharers in the fun.
Riddles, puzzles, rebuses, dreidel games, magic —
everything imaginable for gaming and tests in finding
solutions to mysteries and puzzles are in this volume.
The popular price of $1.50 for this paperback
makes it in the feasible range for all.
Descriptive of the contents in this well-compiled
work are the rules for dreidel playing provided as fol-
lows:


RULES FOR PLAYING DRE1DEL

number of candies. Raisins. nuts. or pennies could also
be used.

Each player puts one candy in the center. The players

Supports Bonds

German Jewish
Shop Bombed

NEW YORK — Or-
thodox congregations
throughout the United
States and Canada were
urged this week to stimu-
late their members to
full-fledged support of the
Israel Bond campaign in

means of "strenthening
Israel's economic secu-
rity and its hopes for
peace, freedom and pro-
gress."

rael Bond activity came
in the form of a resolution
adopted at the 78th
Anniversary Biennial
Convention of the Union
of Orthodox Jewish Con-
gregations of America in
Washington, D.C. Harold
M. Jacobs is president
and Rabbi Pinhas Stolper
is executive vice presi-
dent of the organization
comprising more than
1,000 Orthodox congrega-
tions throughout North
America.
