(Continued from Page 102) SURROUNDING HIT-
making <Judaism the center LER'S "FINAL SOLU-
of one's identity. This book, TION" by Walter Laqueur

originally self-published,
has 'been updated. Using a
question and extended an-
swer form, the co-authors
have provided thoughtful
and 'provocative responses
to questions troubling those
on a 'spiritual odyssey.
This book is especially
useful 'for high school and
college students struggling
with their beliefs, but can be
read with pleasure and de-
light by people of all ages.

PORTRAIT OF A
HERO: THE LETTERS
OF YONI- edited by Benja-

min and Iddo Netanyahu
(Random House).
Lt.
Col.
Jonathan
Netanyahu, who died while
leading the Entebbe rescue,
left behind a memorial in
the form of his own letters.
Yoni's correspondence, here
collected by his brothers,
starts in 1963 with a young
boy attending school in
America, and ends with a
letter written a few days be-
fore his death at age 30.
These humane letters
provide insight into the de-
velopment of quiet heroism.
The letters should be read
each July 4 in America as
well as Israel for they re-
mind us not just of heroes
andEntebbe, but of the very
spirit of independence.

PREPARING FOR

SABBATH by Nessa
Rapaport (William Morrow
and Co.)
This first novel by a
young Jewish writer cen-
ters on the space shared by a
simultaneous search for
God and for love. The book is
a finely-detailed account of
a young woman's journey
into maturity.

PRISONER WITHOUT
A NAME, CELL WITH-
OUT A NUMBER by

Jacobo Timerman (Knopf).
This is a brief, autobiog-
raPhical account of the
author's imprisonment and
torture in Argentina prior
to his moving to Israel. The
book' is an indictment,

TERRIBLE
TIM; '
SgeltEttTHIE CONSPI-

Nce:
SILE

(Little Brown).
The author is a respected
historian searching for an-
swers to some of the troubl-
ing questions about the
Holocaust. He is most espe-
cially interested in the
question of when the world
actually discovered the
Nazis' genocidal intentions,
how the world discovered
those intentions, and how

the world reacted to those

discoveries.
The information un-
covered by Laqueur is ex-
tremely unsettling; he con-
cludes the world knew
about the genocide very
soon after it began. Laqueur
finally considers the rea-
sons for the nations' refusal
to act to halt the killing.
THE TESTAMENT by
Elie Wiesel (Simon and
Schuster).
Elie Wiesel's searing
tales of Jewish life continue
with this work. "The Tes-
tament" is a novel, telling
the life story of Paltiel Kos-
sover, a Jewish poet who
was murdered by the
Soviets in 1952. Paltiel's
early struggle is between
the Jewish ideals of his
heritage and the Com-
munist ideals of his age.
Only after accepting
Communism does the pro-
tagonist finally realize the
inevitable split between
these two parts of his self.
While in prison he writes a
confession—included as part
of the novel — in which he
tries to understand the hor-
ror he helped create.

Fertile Huleh

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
The Huleh Valley, one of
the most fertile agricultural
regions in Israel, was
created by organized drain-
age of swamps and lakes
which had prevented mass
settlement. Drainage oper-
ations between 1951 and
1958 eliminated rampant
malaria, reclaimed 20,000
acres of highly-fertile land
and supplied large amounts
of water for irrigation.
Today, the Huleh Valley
supports Israelis on 21
kibutzim, moshavim and
development towns in the
Galilee panhandle.

JWB Grants
Total $60,000

NEW YORK — Jewish
Welfare Board (JWB)
scholarships totaling
$60,000 have been awarded
to 20 students — all future
staff members of JWB-
affiliated Jewish commu-
nity centers and YM and
YWHAs. The awards will
help the students to get
their required education in
graduate social work
schools of universities and
colleges.

The powers of Time as a
comforter can hardly be
overstated; but the agency
by which he works is .;
exhaustion.
