Rabbinic Age Project Planned

NEW YORK — A pioneer
project on the rabbinic roots
of Western civilization will
be launched this summer by
The Jewish Theological
Seminary -1)f America at its
New York City campus,
Broadway and 122nd Street.
The new program, "In-
stitute for the Teaching of
the Post-Biblical Founda-
tions _of Western Civ-
ilizatiOn, - will be financed
by a grant from the Nation-
al Endowment for the Hu-
Dr. David Weiss Halivni,

Morris Adler Professor of
Rabbinics at the Seminary,
will be the director of the
new institute. He will be
assisted by Rabbi Gordon
Tucker, instructor in the
philosophies of Judaism and
assistant to Seminary Chan-
cellor Gerson D. Cohen.
For its first term, the
institute will select 20 fel-
lows, presently teaching hu-
manities at the under-
graduate level. .
Fellows must be nomi-
nated by the institutions at
which they are teaching,

Protesters organized by the Student Struggle for Soviet
Jewry, Clincerned Jewish Youth and Betar, bearing an
Israeli flag-draped pine coffin, stage a Jan. 1 "New Year of
Death" demonstration for prisoner of conscience Edward
Kumetsev, on a hunger strike "to the death" in the Potma
labor camp. In a related development, The Jewish Observ-
er and Middle East Review of London, reprinted an open
letter to Leonid Brezhnev by British MP Terence Prittie.

The research also jumps
into the scientific debate re-
garding whether there once
were oceans on Mars. Ac-
cording to Shaham, an as-
trophysicist at Hebtew Uni-
versity's Racah Institute of
Physics, his research pro-
ves "there might be a vi-
able other method to form
major surface features"
which some scientists now
argue were created by the



actions. of large bodies of
water on Mars.
Shaham who is working
with Dr. David Pines, of the
University of Illinois De-
partment of Physics, ex-
plained that his work pre-
dicts major surface features
and activity on a planet,
based on a careful study of
the elastic energy, or strain,
present in the surface lay-
ers of that planet.
The strains created by the
very largest surface fea-
tures of a planet cause the

spectacular, tectonic activi-

theory is the Tharsis bulge,
