For both institutions, the
move means opportunities
for long-planned expan-
sions of their many and var-
ied programs.
The Foundation's exten-
sive catalog of cable TV pro-
grams will be expanded
with a new 13-week pro-
gram, Talmud on Televi-
sion, to be shown on a New
York cable outlet, starting
the first week in November.
Two other new 13-week
programs — one on the
Jewish Cultural Panorama;
the Museum Scene; and The
Yesterday Connection —
the history of the Jews
1948-1978 — also will be on
New York City cable TV
starting in November, as
will a Jewish puppetry pro-
gram.
Video cassettes of the TV
programs are available for
distribution.

expanded.

A Jewish library will
open in Goodman House
with thousands of books on
contemporary themes in a
wide range of languages.
Also on the library racks
will be a wide sampling of
Jewish newspapers and
magazines from the United
States and other countries.
The exhibit hall is open-
ing with a special showing
of Israeli literature in He-
brew, and in English trans-
lations, covering Israel's 30
years of statehood, slated
tentatively to be ready
sometime in December.
Another unique feature
will be a display dedicated
to the East European shtetl,
focussing on Goodman's
home town of Gritzev in
Russia as characteristic of
that type of now vanished
lifestyle. Just what the for-
mat is to be for representa-
tion of that era is still being
studied.

The Children's Division
will also offer classes in
drawing and painting for
the first time. Expanded op-
portunities for children to
perform will include a youth
orchestra, a youth choir and
ensemble playing. The new
facilities will allow the
Children's Division to ex-
pand from classes three
days a week to five.
Adult Education pro-
grams will be expanded
from a schedule of two days
a week to four. The registra-
tion of some 400 students for
both semesters is expected
to increase to 600 and 700
adults. Classes will be of-
fered for the first time in
mornings and at lunchtime.
Two fully-equipped dance
studios in the Goodman
House will also make possi-
ble a greatly expanded
Dance Division which will
include mime, ballet, yoga,
modern dance, Hasidic
dance, Israeli folk dance
and exploration of Jewish
symbols through move-
ment.
