Lachman indicated that
among the groups known to
be organizing summer cam-
paigns are Jews for Jesus,
Bnai Yeshua and Beth Sar

tensified efforts follow
Months of build-up and

added, hope to reach out

According to Malcolm
Hoenlein, executive direc-

included a $1 million-plus

impetus to the increasing ef-

Moreover, he said, many
churches have been enlisted
for door-to-door campaigns
in their communities.
Among those involved in or-
ganizing and executing this
extensive follow-up are
leaders of the "Hebrew
Christian - missionary
groups, Hoenlein said.
Other major programs, he
pointed out, include:
• "Shechinah "17": An an-
nual conclave of -Hebrew
Christian" missionaries
which will take place June
17-18 at the Stony Brook
headquarters of Bnai
Yeshua. Up to 1,000 repre-
sentatives of major mis-
sionary groups from around
the country are expected to
participate. They will share
experiences. program ideas
and proselytizing tech-
niques. The fact that the

Devotion to the language
of millions of Jews through-
out the world has motivated
the production of a record-
ing of an impressive list of
32 selections from Yiddish
literature and folklore.
Even the title attests to
the dedication of the collec-
tor of the classical pieces
into the record which has
been issued by Sepher-Her-
mon Press.
"I Love Yiddish—Ikh Hob
Lieb Yiddish" is the title of
the collected works, the re-
citation of which is inter-
spersed with musical selec-
tion.
It is evident that this was
a labor of love that was pur-
sued by Dr. Emanuel S.
Goldsmith. The complete
texts of all of the 32 selec-
tions included in this two-
sided recording have also
been incorporated in a book
of 32 pages which accom-
panies the record. The
songs and recitations of hu-
morous selections also ap-
pear in translation.

taking is defined on the

ish" book, describing it as:
"A mini-course in Yiddish
based on 32 gems of poet-
ry. folksongs and humor."
It is impossible to ascer-
tain how this work could
serve as a course of study
because the task performed
is one of reciting and sing-
ing the selections which
are, indeed, gems. Only one
voice performs the recit-
ing and singing; otherwise
there are no teaching rou-
tines.
The content of this prod-
uct is valuable for the lover
of Yiddish and its literature
because of the eminence of
the authors whose works
have been selected for in-
clusion in "Ikh Hob Lieb
Yiddish." Presented are se-
lections from the works of
Aleph Katz, A. Almi, Aaron
Zeitlin, Jacob Glatstein,
Eliezer Schindler, Jacob
Fichman, H. Leivick, Sho-
lem Aleichem, Kadia Molo-
dowsky, Itzik Manget,
Moishe Kulbak, Abraham
Reisin, Mark Warshawsky
Hillel Zeitlin and Zalman
Shazar.
The prayer by Shazar, a
Yiddish classic, has special
significance here.
Israel's role, the
Holocaust, traditions are
among the themes. The
humor has a folk theme.
The collector of these
Yiddish gems, incorporated
in the record and the ac-
companying book may
order from Sepher-Hermon
Press, Inc., 175 Fifth Ave.,
New York, N.Y. 10010.
