New York Becoming Art Mecca

By YITZHAK RABI

(Copyright 1980, JTA, Inc.)

In recent years, New
York City has been attrac-
t • Ling more and more ar-
f.
/ tists from all over the world.
"I did not come here to con-
quer New York," the young
Israeli artist Rahm Be-
lafonte, ("absolutely no re-
lation to the famous
singer") who arrived in the
city recently from Israel.
The 31-year old Rahm,
was born and raised in
IL,- Aviv admits, however,
that New York "is the most
__ stimulating place anywhere
in the world for an artist to-
day."
Rahm started to draw and

paint about 12 years ago,
while a soldier in the Israeli
army. For eight years, he
said, he concentrated on
surrealistic themes, de-
veloping a special technique
of pen and ink drawings on
white paper.
"The last two years I
spent in Israel," Rahm
said. "But in Israel, for
reasons unknown to me, I
did not draw. I thought
maybe I reached the end
of the road as an artist."
' But as it turned out,
Rahm did not reach the end
of the road. He simply
changed direction. In the
last few months, while in
the U.S., he has been busy
with more realistic types of
drawings —"detailed draw-
ings of animals and birds,"
he explained. Instead of
black ink he now uses
brown ink "which is much
warmer and softer." He said
that he is presently building
up a collection of drawings
with a plan to exhibit them
in New York in the very
near future.
An exhibition of photo-
graphs by Judith Turner
.opened in the Rizzoli Gal-

A KEDEM IMPORT

rom the heart of Israel

lery in New York City last
month. The unique photo-
graphs are from the newly
published book, "Judith
Turner Photographs Five
Architects" — a volume
that includes selections
from the work of five lead-
ing New York architects:
Charles Gwathmey, Peter
Eisenman, John Hejduk,
Michael Graves and
Richard Meier.
Judith Turner's achieve-
ments as a photographer
are underscored by the fact
that she began taking
photographs only a few
years ago, in 1972, when she
returned to the United
States after living for a few
years in Israel.

The latest best seller in
Israel is "Feathers" (Not-.
zot), a novel by a young Is-
raeli writer named Chaim
Beer.

The number one song in
Israel is "Four O'Clock in
the Morning," sung by
Yehudit Ravitz.

American poet Stanley
Kunitz is currently visit-
ing Israel at the invita-
tion of Mayor Teddy Kol-
lek of Jerusalem. "This is
my first visit to Israel,"
the Pulitzer Prize win-
ning poet said in a news-
paper interview in Tel
Aviv. "Why? Maybe be-
cause I was not invited
before. But I always
wanted to come here."

The Israel Museum in
Jerusalem is holding an ex-
hibition featuring the best
of the 100 Picasso drawings
of the Vollar Series. The Is-
rael Museum is one of the
few museums in the world
to possess the complete
series. Vollar was a French
art collector who ordered
the Picasso work in 1937.
The exhibition in
Jerusalem is in honor of the
100th anniversary of the ar-
tist's birth.

IMPORT LI) BY KEDEM WINE CO. NEW YORK, N.Y.

NEW YORK — One of the
more unusual students at
the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan
Theological Seminary is
Abraham L. Raich, a former
statistical engineer from
Colorado, who began study-
ing for the rabbinate this
year, at the age of 58.
Raich, who had been an
employee of CFI Steel Corp.
in Pueblo, Colo., and a can-
tor at Pueblo's Temple
Emanuel before retiring to
pursue his real love full
time, will be in his early 60's
before he is ordained and
says he will look for a con-
gregation in need of a
"dynamic, old rabbi" at the
completion of his training.

NEW YORK — Dr.
Rudolf Kirchschlaeger, Au-
stria's president, recently
told a visiting Jewish youth
delegation that in light of
the horrors of the
Holocaust, it is incumbent
on "leaders who are politi-
cally responsible to give a
guarantee that such terri-
ble things as happened will
not happen again."
"This should be the main
task of the people who hold
political power and also of
the young people of Au-
stria," Kirchschlager said.
On another matter, the
president assured the dele-
gation he has abstained
from all contacts with the
PLO and its representa-
tives, and will continue to
do so.
