'New York Jew' Is Paperbacked Canada Uses Hadassah-WIZO

Best-selling "New York
Jew," the autobiographical
Alfred Kazin story, has
been reissued by Random
House as a paperback.
This candid autobiog-
raphy by one of the leading
literary critics is a portrait
not only of the author — as a
young man working for The
New Republic in its heyday,
as an observer in wartime
London, as a traveler in
Italy, Russia, and Israel, as
teacher, lover, and husband
— but also of the American
intellectual scene during
the crucial 1940s, 1950s,
and 1960s. Kazin knew
many of the leading figures,
and describes some in this
manner:
Hannah Arendt "talked
philosophy as if she were
standing up alone in a
foreign land and in a foreign
tongue against powerful
forces of error."
Bernard Berenson
"spoke English with such
ostentatious elegance,
blandly delivering him-
self of his words one by
one, that the words might
have been freshly

My Mother
always taught
me to ..

dress warmly, eat the right
foods, pick good
company, work hard, be
fair with my customers,
always give them extra
value for their money .. .
"I always follow her
advice. That's why I'm the
country's top Cadillac
salesman.

'Thank you, Mother.'"

WZO Names Israeli to Boost
French Jewish 'Awareness'

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The recognition of a slow
but steady "awakening"
within French Jewry, and
the desire to foster and
encourage it, has prompted
the World Zionist Organiza-
tion to appoint a senior Is-
raeli diplomat, Avi Primor,
to the newly-created posi-
tion of "Delegate-General of
the WZO and Jewish
Agency in France."
Primor, 44, served for six
years as Minister-
Counselor (the number two
spot) at the Israel Embassy
in Paris, leaving in 1976. He
is thoroughly familiar with
French Jewry — now the
second-largest community
in the Diaspora.
Primor said he had been
asked to undertake the as-
signment by leaders of the
French Jewish community,
among them Zionist Feder-
ation head Albert Najman
(a leading leukemia expert)
and leading fund-raiser
Michel Topiol.
He had only agreed,
however, after WZO
chairman Leon Dulzin
suggested he conduct an
in-depth study-visit, dur-

Saul Bellow "seemed to be

Robert Frost angrily

Sylvia Plath was "per-

her fascination with her

Norman Mailer "really

ing which he discovered
"enormously significant
developments that have
affected French Jewry
since I left three years
ago."
Firstly, said Primor,
there is a marked new
willingness among young
people to be Jewishly active
and involved.
His intention is to create
Jewish centers wherever
there is a Jewish commu-
nity of any size. Most of the
Jews are concentrated in
the greater Paris area and
on the Mediterranean coast.
The Consistoire has already
pledged to put its
synagogues at his disposal,
and he has also been prom-
ised the use of the commu-
nity centers run by the
Fonds Social Juif Unifie.
The immediate aim,
Primor concluded, is to
ensure that as many Jews
as possible have permanent,
ongoing contact with a
Jewish organization (the
local Zionist center and
through it the Zionist Fed-
eration). In the long run,
success will mean more
pride and assertiveness on
the part of the 750,000-
strong French community,
and also more Israel-
awareness which is the sine
qua non for any aliya-
consciousness, he stated.

Comptroller's
Report Raps
Israeli Army

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
Israeli army came under
scathing criticism for the
first time in a recent report
by State Comptroller Er-
nest Nebenzahl.
The report, covering Is-
rael's invasion and occupa-
tion of south Lebanon in
April, 1978, cited errors in
logistics, operational mat-
ters, and intelligence and
serious breaches of disci-
pline including looting by
Israeli troops.
The army replied that all
deficiencies noted by the
comptroller have been cor-
rected and that punitive
measures have been taken
against officers and soldiers
found responsible.
The report was also criti-
cal of other aspects of the
military establishment.

Techniques to Help Retarded

MONTREAL (JTA) —
Techniques developed by
the Canadian Hadassah-
WIZO's Research Institute
in Jerusalem are currently
being employed by the Prov-
ince of Ontario to improve
the academic performance
of culturally deprived and
retarded youngsters.
The techniques, known as
Learning Potential
Assessment Device (LPAD)
and the Instrumental
Enrichment Program (IE)
were devised by the Re-
search Institute under the
direction of Dr. Reuven
Feuerstein. They are also
being used by the Ministry
of Education in Israel to
benefit Arab children.
Hadassah-WIZO an-
nounced that as part of its
observance of the Interna-
tional Year of the Child in
Canada, it will present
copies of Dr. Feuerstein's
soon-to-be published book
"The Dynamic Assessment
of Retarded Performers" to
