Rabbi Sperka has been
associated with Young Is-
rael for the past 24 years
and was spiritual leader of
Young Israel of Greenfield
for more than a decade. In
1969 he was elected rabbi
emeritus of Young Israel of
Greenfield, his current post.
During the early years of
the congregation services
were held in his home. He
was a teacher in the adult
education classes, in which
he taught Proverbs and
other biblical books. Friday
evening Humash classes
were held in his home in the
early years of the Oak Park
communal migration.
The Sperka family as-
sociation with the Young
Israel movement goes
back to the mid-1920s
when Young Israel had
its inception in Detroit
and held services in a
room in the Kirby Center.
It was in the old Jewish
Community Center on
Medbury Street in 1929
that Rabbi Sperka had
his early association with
Young Israel.
Rabbi Sperka has held
Michigan pulpits since 1931
when he was spiritual
leader of Cong. Beth
Tephilath Moses in Mt.
Clemens. He next served
the Beth Israel Congrega-
tion in Ann Arbor in 1932,-
33, and came to Cong. Bnai
David in 1933, remaining
there until 1953. He has
since been associated with
Young Israel.
He was the first Jewish
prison chaplain in Michigan
and served in that capacity
from 1941 to 1959. He has
held many communal and
organizational posts, in-
cluding president of the
Jewish National Fund
Council (1935-37); presi-
dent, Detroit Chapter,
American Jewish Congress
(1941-43); vice president,
American Jewish Prison

BJE Offers Purim Materials

NEW YORK — Through
a variety of resource mate-
rials produced for the holi-
day, the Board of Jewish
Education of Greater New
York will bring this year's
Purim celebrations to life in
film and animation, song
and dance. BJE's Purim
materials can be used in
school, synagogue and home
Purim_ festivities.
"The Festival of Purim in
Israel," BJE's latest 16mm
color film, produced with
Camera Ltd. of Israel,
shows how Israelis revel in
the festivities of Purim with
song, dance and drama.
Animation helps tell the
tale of a mysterious gragger
which will not work — ex-
cept when the name "Ha-
man" is mentioned in "Ha-
ra'ashan," a 16mm full-
color film. Part of a series of
merry animated language
films in easy Hebrew, the
film is accompanied by a
guide which includes the
film's full text, a music
sheet for the theme song,
educational guidelines and
objectives and a vocabulary
list.
The• melodies of the
Purim holiday are de-
lightfully performed by
Jewish school students in
"Tu b'Shevat and Purim
Melodies," a caugette

which features 10 songs
for each of the featured
holidays. Part of BJE's
Holiday Melody Cassette
series, it is accompanied
by a songbook contain-
ing all the melodies fea-
tured in the cassette.
Other BJE Press items for
Purim include "Folk Dances
for Jewish Festivals,"
"Jewish Dances the Year
Round," and a play, "A Song
for Queen Esther." There is
also a reader-activity book
entitled "Purim Puppets,"
designed for use in special
education classes.
For information, about
any of these items, or a com-
plete catalog, write Purim
