THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Scholarly Exc ha nge Determines Jewishness of Volume's Editor

An editorial page book re-
view of the Ktav-published
anthology, "Disputation and
Dialogue: Readings in the
Jewish-Christian Encoun-
ter," for which the late
Prof. Solomon Zeitlin wrote
an introduction, created the
spark for an exchange of let-
ters among scholars to de-
termine the background of
the volume's editor, Rev.
Frank Ephraim Talnrage.
e first of several let-
came to The Jewish
News from Jeffrey H.
Tigay of the faculty of arts
and sciences at the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania. Tigay
suggested that the review
implies that Talmage is a
Christian. However, accord-
ing to Tigay, "unless I have
been under a serious mis-
conception for many years,
Frank is a Jew. He is edi-
tor of the new Association
for Jewish Studies Re-
view."
In a reply to a query
about Talmage's back-
ground, Dr. Carl Hermann
Voss, a leader in Christians
Concerned for Israel, and a
pioneer in the American
Christian Palestine Com-
mittee, said he had never
heard of Talmage.
A subsequent letter from
Tigay to The Jewish News
suggested writing Talmage
or an associate.
Finally, an inquiry from
The Jewish News brought
the following:
"It happens all the time.
Actually, I received a copy

Letters Sent
to Congress

NEW YORK — A letter.
from the Zionist Organi-
zation of America, ad-
dressed to the four con-
gressiOnal sponsors of
anti-boycott legislation,
urged them to continue
their efforts for the
speedy passage of the
laws they have proposed.
The letter, addressed to
Senators H. A. Williams,
Jr. (N.J.), and William
Proxmire (Wise.), Reps.
Benjamin Rosenthal
(N.Y.) and Jonathan Bin-
gham (N.Y.), was signed
by ZOA president Rabbi
Joseph P. Sternstein.
In it, he said, "We are
somewhat perturbed by
the appearance of Sec-
retary of State Cyrus
Vance before congress
Vance committees urging
lay in the passage of
the anti-boycott legisla-
tion you initiated. We fear
that this may endanger
the force of your bill and,
in fact, further encourage
Arab interference in
American business and
intensify the secondary
and tertiary boycotts."

Jewish Adults
Learn in Chicago

CHICAGO (JTA) — An
extensive and ongoing
adult partiCipation in
Jewish education and cul-
tural activities is taking
place in metropolitan
Chicago, according to a
study done by Dr. Sara
Feinstein, director of
education and culture of
the Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Chicago.
Neil Greenbaum, who
chaired the meeting last
month of the Jewish Edu-
cation Committee of the
Jewish Federation where
Dr. Feinstein's report
was presented, noted that
although the report indi-
cates that there is much
more.to be done in terms
of coordination and ex-
change of information be-
tween diverse groups
providing either in-depth
learning or experimental
awareness of Jewish trad-
ition, observance, values,
history and culture for
Jewish adults in met-
ropolitan Chicago, evi-
dence shows that Chicago
is far from being an arid
terrain for adult Jewish
education.

Marx's Daughter
Unlike Father

NEW YORK — In "The
Crowded Years" by Yov-
vone Kapp, Eleanor
Marx, the daughter of
Karl Marx is shown to
have returned to the
Judaism her father re-
jected.
Asked to speak at a
meeting in 1890 to protest
Russian persecution of
Jews, she responded: "I
shall be glad to speak at
the meeting . . . the more
glad that my father was a
Jew." Four years later
she wrote to socialist Max
Beer, "I am the only one
of my family who felt
drawn to the Jewish
people."
According to Kapp,
Eleanor learned Yiddish,
and until her death by her
own hand, she made clear
her identification as a
Jew.

The word haggada means
story or narration. The
Passover Haggada recounts
the exodus from Egypt
through quotations from the
Bible and Talmud, with
hyms, legends allegories
and folk songs.

didn't get around to it.
"The fact is that I added
my Hebrew name to my
English name on pub-
lications in order to avoid
this confusion, but, you see,
once you're typecast,
there's nothing you can do
about it. Perhaps I should
spell it Efroyim or better
yet change my name to
Cohen. Then they'd prob-
ably say I was a meshum-
mad. In any event, one who
reads my own contributions

to the volume should have
no doubts as to my Jew-
ishness."
