LISTENIN
POST

IT WAS A magnificent
tribute to George Bass .. .
Over -500 people jamming
Adat Shalom for the tes-
timonial dinner honoring
George on his 75th birthday
. . . and for 25 years of dedi-
cated service to the
Downtown Synagogue .. .
ike the reason he has
rked so hard for
wntown Synagogue .. .
to treat everyone as equals
.. in their desire to pray
. . . whether they could af-
ford it or not .. .
The crowd was symbolic
. . . people from every walk
of life were there . . . work-
ing men and women and re-
tirees rubbing shoulders
with bank presidents, court
justices, land owners, big
business bosses, doctors,
lawyers, senators, rabbis,
celebrated personages, etc.,
etc., etc.
Judge Nathan Kaufman
assisted by Al Bricker and
their committee did a mas-
terful job . . . It was a fun
evening . . . a most-endear-
ing evening . . . one that
made a person proud to be
there.
Nate was the very strong
toastmaster „. . . George
moved everyone when he
spoke about no one ever
being turned away or forced
to pay . . . that the reason he
worked those 25 years was
because of the time he went
to shul on a holiday and was
refused admission since he
didn't have a ticket.
Everyone wore red
yarmulkes ... prompting
podium-ites ... Rabbi
Efry Spectre of Adat
Shalom said, "It looks
like we're here to elect a
Pope." ... Rabbi Israel
Halpern said he was
pleased to address the
College of Cardinals ...
Dr. Eugene Stone,
president of Downtown
Synagogue, said that he
just saw smoke; that the
College of Cardinals had
just elected a new Pope
. . . and putting on a white
yarmulke, he said, "I am
your new Pope."
There aren't enough
words to tell of the great-
ness of such a man as
George Bass . . . But it was
told in its own way . . . by
the massive attendance in
his honor.
GET WELL WISHES
to Norman Gussin . . . on
recent operation.
BANQUET WAS HELD
this month by Chicago Med-
ical School, with Dr. Burt
Brent being given the Dis-
tinguished Alumnus of The
Year Award for his out-
standing work in plastic
surgery . . . He is associated
with Stanford University
Hospital . . . and the brother
of Southfield urologist Dr.
Robert Brent. They are the
sons of Dr. Morris and Anne
Brent.
LAS VEGAS NIGHT

Place, 8 p.m., is by Chil-

dren's Orthogenic Center.
LAST YEAR was the
first one . . . and such a big
success that it'll take two
City of Hope groups to put
on this year's Bowl-A-Thon
Nov. 8, at Thunderbird
Lanes . . . Mr. and Mrs. ,
Group was the organizer .. .
and joins with the Helen
Rosenberg Cancer Fighters
in the fund raiser where
keglers roll for sponsors
from le up . . . and vie for
trips to Toronto, Quebec,
New York and Las Vegas
. . . Chairpersons were
Mildred Kornheiser
(Cancer Fighters) 557-6885,
and Bernie Rappaport (Mr.
& Mrs.) 543-5275.
RECENT FIRST meet-
ing of the year by Hannah
Schloss Old Timers at
Jewish Community Center
in Oak Park brought more
than just people together
. . . it became a reason for
Mary Raskin, living in
Florida, to remain in De-
troit six months of the year.
She was taken to the
meeting by sister-in-law
Shirley Raskin and sister
Lillian Rosen . . . and intro-
duced as the widow of Sam
Raskin, founder of the Han-
nah Schloss Old Timers .. .
Shirley and Lil had seen an
item about the meeting in
The Jewish News, called
Aunt Mary to tell her about
it . . : and expected to drop
her off .. .
The program was so good
with old time movies of
show biz greats that they
stayed . . . After the pro-
gram, lots of folks came over
to say hello . . . She is living
at Franklin Park Apart-
ments. ,

Theater Home

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The American Jewish The-
ater has become the
theater-in-residence at the
92nd Street Y in Manhat-
tan, starting with the
1980-1981 season. =

Each year as we begin
reading the Torah over
again on Shabat Bereshit,
we search for fresh insights.
Retelling the first stories in
Genesis, the poem by Ruth
Feldman, "Adam to God,"
makes us ache over the loss
of Abel, "that golden boy."
The poet suggests that we
see Cain as "the dark one we
didn't love enough." Using
everyday language, Adam's
lines focus our feelings on
life now, not on "hist Eden."
Ms. Feldman's poem ap
pears in her recently pub-
lished first collection, "The
Ambition of Ghosts." This

moving book balances the
poet's knowledge of her pri-
vate losses and those of her
people, and her strengths in
continuing • to "keep my
dreams intact."
An
internationally
acclaimed translator, Ms.
Feldman's translations
include "Shema," the
book of poems by the Ita-
lian writer who survived
Auschwitz, Primo Levi.
Her own poetry con-
fronts such experience
by calling "the faint blue
markings, the numbers"
she imagines on her skin .
"Birthmark."
The poem "Adam to God"
was reprinted by permis-
sion of the author from "The
Ambition of Ghosts."

. The woman you made spins cloth
to keep me warm. The opening
in my side healed with no scar,
but there's an ache when I recall
that golden boy, your favorite,
and the dark one we didn't love enough.
Life's hard now, but every time
Eve stirs under my calloused hands
I forgive her my lost Eden.

Katzenelson Holocaust Poem
Translated by Yeshiva Prof

NEW YORK — "The
Song of the Murdered
Jewish People," written in
Yiddish by the Polish
Jewish poet Yitzhak Kat-
zenelson prior to his death
in Auschwitz and hidden
until the allied liberation,
has been fully translated
into English by Yeshiva
University Prof. Noah H.
Rosenbloom. -
The poem, consisting of
15 cantos, each comprising
15 stanzas portraying
primarily the agony of the
Jews of Warsaw, together
with facsimiles of the origi-
nal text, has been published
by Ghetto Fighters House,
jointly with the Hakibbutz
Hameuchad Publishing
House in Israel.
Yitzhak Katzenelson was
born in Russia in 1886,
moved with his famiy to
Lodz, Poland, and died in
the Auschwitz concentra-
tion camp in 1944 at the age
of 58. In the Jewish commu-
nity of Poland between the
two World Wars Katzenel-
son was a leading modern
Hebrew educator and a pro-
lific, vesatile, bilingual poet
and playwright whose
works received wide
acclaim.
An ardent Zionist and
an influential intellec-
tual, Katzenelson was
among the prime targets
of the Nazis after they
had conquered Poland
and began their liquida-
tion of the Jewish com-
munity. He went into hid-
ing in Warsaw where he
wrote articles, poems and
plays for the under-
ground press, frequently
under assumed names.
He bore witness to the
burning of the Warsaw
Ghetto and the decimation
of its Jewish inhabitants.
Katzenelson's wife and his
two younger sons were de-
ported to Treblinka in 1942

where they and thousands
of other Jews were put to
death.
In his cantos Katzenelson
describes the despair of the
Jews endeavoring in vain to
escape the merciless bom-
bardment by the low-flying
"Luftwaffe," the panic in
the aftermath of the Nazi
invasion of Poland, the de-
secration of the synagogues,
the relentless persecutions
and terror by the Germans,
and the blackmail and ex-
tortionist practices by the
Poles.
