as a scholar he demands clar-
ity and precision, as a
teacher he offers discipline
and encouragement, as an
American he prides himself
in supporting this country's
values, and as a Jew he is
committed to the
"Fatherhood of God and the
brotherhood of man.
"Throughout his life he has
sought to research and inter-
pret the unique coexistence
of Judaism and America:
"We are strong culturally
because we are creating a
synthesis here of American
culture and critical Jewish
culture."
His search for and analysis
of the American Jewish ex-
perience since colonial times
have provided the basis for
an understanding of the "rise
and destiny" of the Jews in
this country, a community
representing the largest, most
endowed and well-educated
Jewish people the w _ orld has
ever known.
What a remarkable man,
Jacob Rader Marcus! And his
1,000-page magnum opus will
soon add attestation to his
genius! That's why the Happy
Birthday greetings to him re-
verberate throughout the
world.

"Festschrift" has for a century
been the means of collating
tributes by scholars to their
most distinguished associates. It
was a way of treating anthologi-
cally the works of scholars .and
academicians.
Biz hundert un Tsvantsik: A
tribute volume on Dr. Jacob
Rader Marcus on the occasion of
his 90th birthday, is such a
Festschrift.
Edited by Abraham J. Peck
and Jonathan Sams., this vol-
ume contains scores upon scores
of enthusiastic messages in hon-
oring Marcus at 90 from the
most distinguished in academia
and the most eminent among
his students who have learned
so much from him.
Published by Hebrew Union
College-Jewish Institute of Reli-
gion, this impressive brochure
commences with an introductory
tribute. by Dr. Alfred
Gottschalk, president of the col-
lege, who enumerates his asso-
ciate's distinctive achievements.
Emphasized properly is Dr.
Marcus' contributions towards
research, as the founder of the
American Jewish Archives, and
the support given to the reten-
tion of American Jewry's most
important historic records. Dr.
Gottschalk makes this proper
evaluation of Dr. Marcus:
As a human being he
evokes love and appreciation,

A very distinguished scholar
who is approaching his 85th
birthday, Dr. Sol Liptzin, is
similarly scheduled for honors
with a festschrift by many emi-
nent Americans. Peter Land
Publishers are scheduling the
appearance soon of Identity and

Dr. Sol Liptzin

Ethos: A Festschrift for Sol
Liptzin on the Occasion of his
85th Birthday.
Among the authoritative
scholars who have enriched
Jewish literature, whose emph-
ases include a developmental,
interpretative literature of Yid-
dish and its great scholars, Dr.
Liptzin, who is now an emeritus
professor living in Jerusalem,
keeps writing and enriching
Jewish knowledge.
