NEW YORK — A con-
trast between Moscow and
Jerusalem, highlighted by
the international book fairs
in the two cities, is made in
Volume 36 of Jewish Book
Annual, the tri-lingual
American yearbook of
Jewish literary creativity
just issueil by the Jewish
Welfare Board's Jewish
Book Council.
The Moscow Interna-
tional Book Fair opened
"under a cloud of distrust
and in an atmosphere of
censorship and repression,"
Dr. Jacob Kabakoff, editor
of the Jewish Book Annual,
writes`. "On the other hand,
the Jerusalem fair provided
a leading forum for open
cultural and literary inter-
change."
The Moscow event under-
scored "the role of the book
under freedom," Dr.
Kabakoff notes. "It provided
a remarkable demonstra-

tion of the yearning of Rus-
sian Jews for books of
Jewish interest. The Jewish
exhibits were visited by
thousands of persons, many
of whom pleaded for books
which they themselves
could read and which they
could use to teach their
children abqut Judaism.
The visitors were not per-
mitted to purchase books,
but the fact that many of the
items disappeared indicates
how deep is the hunger for
and
information
about
enlightenment
Jewish life."

A total of 845 works of
Jewish interest published
in America, Israel and
Great Britain during the
past year are annotated in
seven bibliographies in
English, Hebrew and Yid-
dish. The bibliographies
cover American Jewish
non-fiction and fiction,
Jewish juveniles, American
Hebrew books, Yiddish
works, Anglo-Jewish books,
and selected books on
Judaica from Israel.

Dr. Kabakoff says the
Jerusalem fair was the
largest ever in scope both
in exhibition space and
international atten-
dance. It attracted more
than 1,000 exhibitors
from 43 countries, with
the largest number com-
ing from America.

"Israel in American Fiction,"
by Harold U. Ribalow, author
and literary critic; "The
Holocaust in Hebrew Drama,"
by Dr. Yaffa Eliach, director,
Center for Holocaust Studies
and associate professor of
Judaic studies, Brooklyn Col-
lege; "Jewish American Poetry,"
by Dr. Milton Hindus, professor
of English, Brandeis University;
"The Ghetto Poems of Abraham
Su tzkever," by Dr. Ruth R.

such hotels. These sanctions
have caused great bitter-

means to cancel these or-

Some hotel owners had
to submit to the orders, in
order to continue wed-
ding and other cere-
monies. Others, like the
Hilton Hotel, refused.

Some religious leaders in
Jerusalem criticized the ex-
treme demands of Rabbi
Zolti. The Vice Mayor, the
former Chief Rabbi of
Johannesburg, Prof.
Yizhak-Levy. Rabinowicz
said that it was enough that
the kitchens of the hotels
were kosher. If the hotels
were to comply with the re-
cent orders' of Chief Rabbi
Zolti,--they could hardly
exist.
