PURELY COMMENTARY -

We're rich and not so rich. Young and old.
Religious and non-religious. We're the
fabric of Detroit's vibrant Jewish communi-
ty. And we're the subject of Carla Jean
Schwartz's new column — Lifestyles — to
appear bi-weekly in The Jewish News
beginning September 25.

Lifestyles will include short, snappy pro-
files of those not normally in the limelight
who have excelled in their professions,
volunteer work or hobbies. It also will con-
tain vignettes and anecdotes which capture
the warmth and spirit we possess.

All this through the eyes of one of Detroit's
most capable writers whose roots — and
love — for our community are deep.

Continued from Page 2

Of importance in the ar-
rangements for the upcoming
local commemoration is the
participation in it of YIVO —
Yiddisher Visenshaftlikher
Institute for Jewish
Research. Its staff represen-
tatives will produce and
display archival material as
indictments of the Russian
anti-Semitism and the
Stalinist pogromists.
The Friedman Yiddish lec-
ture series thus acquires
special importance in local
cultural activities by serving
as the medium in lending
deserved significance to the
commemoration of a most
tragic chapter in modern
history.

FRIDAY, SEPT. 18, 1987

ewish Possibilities is a
remarkably well-cho-
sen title for a book that
could be considered a sum-
mary of occurrences, thinking
and acting in the world
Jewish communities during
periods of great stress.
This is the title of the large
400-page volume that con-
tains "the best of Moment
magazine." The editor,
Leonard Fein, and his
publisher, Jason Aronson of
Northvale, N.J., didn't have
to make too much effort to
prove that this is not
boasting. It is a realistic
reference to a very valuable
chapter in the story of
journalism.
The first thing to take into
account is that this valuable
book is a ten-year record of
the editorship of Dr. Leonard
Fein. It appears at the very
month of Dr. Fein's retire-
ment from that editorship,
when a successor promises to
carry on an important task
for American and world
Jewry and for journalism as
a profession and as a vital fac-
tor in the media. Therefore

the proper designation of
Jewish Posibilities as a
valedictory volume.
The valedictorian's record
as writer, lecturer, academi-
cian and participant in many
Jewish discussions,
disputable and merely infor-
mative, is well known. It is
also as historian that he
merits recognition.
All the factors in Jewish life
are represented in this
volume. Therefore, it is Dr.
Fein who emerges from the
pages of this book. It is in-
disputably "an anthology of
anthologies," and is therefore
a history of our time.
Stormy years are recorded
in the seven sections of the
book. The challenges in the
cultural sphere, numerous
religious factors, and every
conceivable challenge to Jews
everywhere are under con-
sideration. The emphasis
given to the "American
Jewish Experience: Explora-
tions in Identity" and
"Threads and Themes," as
the first two sections of the
book are entitled, at once
recommend the volume to
students of American Jewish
developments. Then there is
the conscientious considera-
tion of Israel's many roles
and her relationships with
the Diaspora.
There is a totality to this
volume that is most commen-
ding. Besides, there are the
viewpoints of world leader-
ship that are impressive.
There is a complete section in
the book that contains inter-
views with the world's
leading Jews. If it were only
for this section, the Leonard
Fein valedictory would at
once occupy _a top place in cur-
rent Jewish literature.
Jewish Possibilities is an
immense work that pays due
respect to the editorship of
magazine by
Moment
Leonard Fein and is a com-
mendation to the publisher,
Jason Aronson, for making
this noteworthy book
available for what will sure-
ly be a best-selling
readership.
