Ephros Musical Anthology Printed

Magnes and Dr. Samson
Benderly. The Down-
town Talmud Torah on
Houston Street served as
my headquarters.

"During this period I or-
ganized the first children's
synagogue where children
were trained to officiate as
cantors and readers of the
Torah on the Shabat and
holidays.
"I also taught at Yeshivat
Jacob Joseph on Henry
Street and at the Chaim A.
Friedland School for Girls.
In order to enhance my
teaching task and develop a
song repertory, I wrote
many pieces of sacred, secu-
lar and nationalistic
character, hoping to give a
joyous learning experience
to those under my wing.
"Two years later I turned
to the cantorate and began
my research for the six-
volume (Cantorial Anthol-

ogy.' I always, however, re-
tained my interest in writ-
ing Jewish music for chil-
dren.

"In 1936 I wrote the
`Children's Suite,' 16
musical settings for
Bialik's children's poems.
Later on I was commis-
sioned to write a chil-
dren's Friday evening
service for Harry
Coopersmith of the
Jewish Education Com-
mittee of New York."
It is important that the

life- story of a great Jewish
musical anthologist should
be known and is therefore
presented here in his own
words for that purpose.
The Shabat and all the
festivals, as well as the Yom
Hazikaron and the Yom
HaAtzmaut, are rep-
resented with traditional
songs in the first volume.

Pro-Palestinian
Is Sentenced

PARIS (JTA) — Frederic
Oriach, a pro-Palestinian
leftwing extremist linked to
terrorists here, was sen-
tenced to five years' impris-
onment by a Paris court last
week on charges of "conspi-
racy to organize a criminal
gang." His original six-year
sentence was reduced on
appeal.
Oriach, 30, was carrying
a list of Israeli offices in
Paris and the addresses of
French companies doing
business with Israel when
he was arrested. Four of the
businesses had been targets
of terrorist bombings. Leaf-
lets claiming responsibility
for the bombings were found
in Oriach's home.
He told the court that he
supported the attacks but
claimed he was not directly
involved in them. The pro-
secution failed to connect
him to the bombings. The
court ruled however that
Oriach, was a "political-
ideological" leader of a ter-
rorist group and must bear
responsibility for its ac-
tions.

transliterations are in-
cluded.
With illustrations by
Raphael Bouganim, the
Ephros volume suggests it-
self as a most valuable song
book for all Jewish schools.
The manner of presentation
is in itself an inspiration.
The Gershon Ephros
work is a notable contribu-
tion to Jewish teaching, en-
hancing learning.

Gershon Ephros was one
of the very distinguished
Jewish musicologists and
he has left a great heritage.
His daughter now offers a
valuable gift to Jewry: his
selected works to be pub-
lished in two volumes.
The first,
"Shiron
Hadash: New Jewish
Songster," published by the
Gershon Cantorial Anthol-
ogy Foundation, printed in
Israel by Nadith PreQs Ltd.,
contains the holiday cycle.
The second, to appear later,
will deal with "The Child
World," and will introduce
musical settings for secular
poems revolving about the
child and his home envi-
ronment.
Ephros
wrote
an
explanatory preface to the
current, the first volume,
which his daughter, Helen
Ephros, published post-
humously, her father hay-
ing passed away in 1978. In
his 1977 prefatory note,
Gershon Ephros wrote au-
tobiographically:
