As a staff member of Es-
quire, Harry Stein authored
the widely acclaimed
"Ethics" column.
The choicest of his col-
umns are now offered in a
fascinating book, "Ethics
and Other Liabilities" (St.
Martin's Press).
Stein touched upon so
many problematic issues,
without pulling punches,
that his column was
awaited by a large following
of readers. He became a
symbol for philosophic in-
terpretation of life's prob-
lems, the experiences that
reached the hearts and
minds of a large readership.
Among his most in-
teresting essays was the
one on "Racial Slurs,
Ethnic Jokes."

Testimony is like the shot
of a long-bow, which owes
its efficacy to the force of the
shooter; argument is like
the shot of the cross-bow,
equally forcible whether
discharged by a giant or a
dwarf.

A Jewish boy is not given
a name until the eighth day,
when he is circumcised.
Some claim that this
practice follows what seems
to be a reference in the Bible
to infer that Abraham
named his son at about the
time that he was circum-
cised (Genesis 21:3). Also,
Abraham's name was ex-
tended to its full pronuncia-
tion after he himself was
circumcised (Genesis 17:4).
Others claim that since
the act of circumcision re-
nders the boy to be a full
fledged member of the cove-
nantal community that
exists between the Lord. and
the people of Israel, thus es-
tablishing his identity as a
full fledged member of the
Jewish people, the name, a
Jewish name, is then bes-
towed upon him further
providing him with a full
sense of identity.
Furthermore, the bes-
towal of a name seems to
require some kind of pub-
lic ceremony so as to an-
nounce the name to the
community.
Since a girl is not circum-
cized her name is bestowed
at a public service in the
synagogue so that it, too,
becomes public knowledge.

gree.

ature, Yiddish language

"On Not Turning the Other
Cheek" in which the blun-
ders of the McCarthy era

Then there is a moving

bit of history.
The nostalgia for the
Eugene Stein philosophy is
revived in his collected es-
says, which once again fas-
cinate an admiring
readership.
