THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Novel Chronicles Wealthy
Jewish Family in Germany

Four generations of a
wealthy German-Jewish
family are chronicled in Sil-
via Tennenbaum's new
novel, "Yesterday's Streets"
(Random ifouse).
The Wertheims have
lived in Frankfurt since the
15th Century, far longer
than most of their gentile
neighbors. Successful in
business and the profes-
sions, they are, by the time
the novel begins in 1903,
also patrons 6f the arts who
live in a style comparable to
their neighbors in France,
the Rothschilds.

Against the backdrop of
contemporary events — the
coming of World War I, the
Russian Revolution, the col-
lapse of the Weimar Repub-
lic and the rise of Hitler —
the author involves the
reader with the fortunes of
15 major characters. There
is Edu, the youngest son,
who takes over the business
on the death of his father
and thereafter ceaselessly,

PLAN TO ATTEND BAR-ILAN UNIVERSITY'S

but, with considerable
charm, seeks to manipulate
the lives of those around
him.
There is Andreas, a
musicologist, and his
twin brother, Ernst, who
emigrates to Palestine,
Emma, their'older sister,
seems to find it terrifying
to be a Jew, while Lena,
their younger sister, pos-
sesses a charm that car-
ries her into many differ-
ent Jewish and Gentile
circles.
As the Nazis come to
power, many of the char-
acters escape. The author
details the adventures of
the-family in Switzerland,
France, Holland, England
and America, but it is
Frankfurt as it once was
that is at the heart of the
book.
Silvia Tennenbaum was
born in Frankfurt and carne
to this country in 1938. A
graduate student in art his-
tory at Columbia Univer-
sity, "Yesterday's Streets"
is her second novel. She is
also the author of "Rachel,
the Rabbi's Wife."

MELBOURNE (JTA) —
A new organization
authorized to represent the
New Zealand Jewish com-
munity has been estab-
lished in Wellington at a
national conference
attended by Jewish leaders
from all the centers of
Jewish population.
The new umbrella group
is to be known as the New
Zealand Jewish Council.
New Zealand's Jewish
community numbers 3,500
and is divided mostly be-
tween the cities of Auckland
and Wellington, with
smaller communities in key
provincial centers.
In recent years the com-
munity has faced serious
problems as a result of in-
termarriage, emigration to
Australia, and a growing
anti-Israel shift in govern-
ment policies among some
'opinion making groups.
Relative to its small
numbers, New Zealand'
Jewry has a high rate of
aliya. At the same time,
there has been a steady
growth in recent years of
newcomers from the Soviet
Union.
