THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Trilingual Tributes Mark Convocation
Perpetuating Memory of Bernard Isaacs

Students, educational as-
sociates and communal co-
workers of Bernard Isaacs
joined in paying honor to his
memory at an academic
convocation held Sunday af-
ternoon at the United Heb-
rew Schools' LaMed Au-
ditorium.
The occasion was the pre-
sentation of a sculpture, in
the formal ceremony, by
Rose Kaye, chairman of the
board of the Midrasha Col-
lege of Jewish Studies, in
behalf of the two co-
sponsoring movements, the
United Hebrew Schools and
the Jewish Historical Soci-
ety of Michigan.
The sculptor, Arthur
Schneider, commended the
heads of the sponsoring
group for their cooperation
in the planning processes
for the project. He said he
was guided to affirm three
principles, dedicating the
sculpture to learning tradi-
tions, family and Torah,
under the guildeline, "Ves-
hinantem le-bonekho," —
"thou shalt teach it to your
children."
With Dr. Gerald Teller,
UHS superintendent,
presiding, the addresses
of the afternoon, which
defined Bernard Isaacs'
role as a national as well
as local educational
leader, were in English,
Hebrew and Yiddish.

Julius Harwood and
Phillip Applebaum, presi-
dents of the two co-
sponsoring organizations,
acclaimed Mr. Isaacs' in-
erasable contributions to
Detroit's educational
movements. Applebaum, in
behalf of the historical soci-
ety, afterward read the his-
torical plaque dedicated to
Mr. Isaacs, citing both the
English and Hebrew texts.
Mandell Berman spoke in
behalf of the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation, as o former
president of Federation as
well -as a former president of
the Hebrew Sc.hoOls, and as
a student of Mr. Isaacs.
A selection from Mr.
Isaacs' Hebrew writings
was read, after his introduc-
tory reminiscence of the late
educator's noteworthy con-
tributions to Jewish educa-
tional tasks.

Sarah (Mrs. Morris)
Friedman read the Yid-
dish text of a tribute to
Mr. Isaacs that was writ-
ten by Wolf Snyder. An
appreciation was pre-
sented by Midrasha fa-
culty members Morris
Nobel and Rabbi Max
Weine.
Selections from Mr.
Isaacs' writings, which ap-
peared in the program pub-
lished for the testimonial
gathering, were read by two
UHS pupils, Howard
Weiner and Felissa Burns.
Several references were
made to Mr. Isaace having
earned a college degree in
engineering (from Cooper
Union, New York), and that
he had instead chosen to de-
vote his life to teaching
Hebrew, to guiding many
into the Hebrew teaching
profession, to inspiring the

JERUSALEM — Israel
Television has announced
that it will not broadcast
"Playing for Time," the
award-winning film about
Auschwitz, because of the
PLO ties of the film's star,
Vanessa Redgrave.

The British Government
drastically limited Jewish
immigration into the Man-
date in 1921, 1929, and fi-
nally 1939. Britain severely
restricted Jews from pur-
chasing land on a large
scale, even at exorbitant
prices. Yet, at the same
time, Arabs from Egypt and
Syria freely entered the
Mandate to take advantage
of the higher wages and liv-
ing standards generated by
Jewish settlement.

OVER 40 YEARS DEPENDABLE SERVICE

Dr. Samuel Schaffler,
superintendent of the Board
of Jewish Education of
Chicago, as principal
speaker, expressed pride in
the achievements of Heb-
rew educators in this coun-
try.
He rejected the criti-
cisms which are piling up
in the treatment of the
Jewish schools and
educators in America
and maintained that the
results do not merit con-
demnations.
Pointing to the Isaacs'
and Friedlands, the
Dushkins, Gamorans and
many others as examples,
Dr. Schaffler deplored the
failure to recognize the
many gifts that were made
to the American Jewish
educational system and cal-
led it a chronic educational
amnesia, to fail to record
with- appreciation what had
been attained.
