Personal, Professional' Tells Communal Worker's Role

By LAWRENCE J.

EPSTEIN

(A Seven Arts Feature)

The autobiography has
been a form frequently fa-
vored by Jewish political
and communal leaders.
These volumes are among
the most fascinating in
Jewish literature, for they
reveal Jewish life at a cer-
tain time and place and re-
mind readers how closely an
individual Jew's personal
identity can be entwined
with the fate of the entire

No.

Jewish people.
Of course not all who
compose their memoirs are
good writers, but the writ-
ing is surprisingly often
good. Once in a while a truly
gifted writer treats us to his
remembrances. Sidney Z.
Vincent is such a writer.
On the surface, "Personal
and Professional" (Jewish
Community Federation of
Cleveland) would seem to be
a parochial book, limited in
interest to those in Cleve-

the community,
community, though, can
also serve as a reminder, in-
deed a warning, of how far
we have gone away from
such communities.
The second part of the
book, "Most Professional,"
covers the years 1951-1981.
In this section the author
discusses his work, first per-
forming local tasks in
Cleveland and in-
creasinngly performing na-
tional and international
tasks, culminating in help-
ing to organize the Confer-
ence of Human Needs in Is-
rael.
The book ends with a
selection of speeches.
Most of these speeches
would be interesting
reading for everyone in
the community; they all
should be required read-
ing for our community
professionals. The em-
phasis on the lack of
Jewish cultural and edu-
cational institutions is
particularly thought-
provoking.
This book is the first pub-
lishing venture of The
Jewish Community Federa-
tion of Cleveland. The fed-
eration deserves commen-
dation for such an under-
taking.

land where Mr. Vincent —
executive director emeritus
of the Jewish Community
Federation of Cleveland —
grew up and worked, or
those involved in Jewish
community service. From
the very first page, how-
ever, Sidney Vincent's
engaging writing style
sweeps the reader up in a
fascinating story.
The first part of the
book, "Mostly Personal,"
covers the years 1920-
1951. The writer concen-
trates on memories of
school, friendships, dis-
covery of what it means
to be Jewish, and occu-
pational and marital de-
cision. Such a cataloging
of material, however,
fails to do justice to the
warm, self-effacing
prose.
The nostalgic stories will
resonate in the memory of
every reader who will recall
similar childhood incidents.
Vincent seems to remember
the name of every person
he has ever met, and they
all come up for judgments
most fairly and humorously
rendered.
Reading about the cohe-
siveness and closeness of
