A

Walker in
by
Jerusalem"
Samuel Hellman,
Summit Books.
From the point of view of a
social anthropologist, this book
seeks to explain the meaning,of
this unique city to the Christ-
ians, Jews and Moslems who
live there and to other millions
around the world who cherish
it. Samuel Hellman, who first
visited Jerusalem 20 years
ago, lived nearly half of the last
six years there. He explored its
spirit, wandered its streets and
quarters and met its residents.
"Jerusalem must be under-
stood as a tapestry in time," he
writes in the prologue to the
book. "Woven into its present
is an unforgettable past, and
intertwined with both is an
idealized future." The book is
beautifully written with a lyri-
cal prose.

"The World of Sholom
Aleichem" by Maurice
Samuel, Atheneum Pub-
lishers.
The legendary Yiddish
writer Sholom Aleichem re-
flected in his stories the inter-
nal world of Russian Jewry 50,
60 and 70 years ago, a world
that long since disappeared.
Considered the greatest of
Jewish humorists and among
the world's best, he was not
only part of Russian Jewry, the
author of this book asserts, but
was "Russian Jewry itself. It is
hard to think of him as a
`writer.' He was the common
people in utterance."
Samuel presents the world of
Russian Jewry through the
characters and heroes in
Sholom Aleichem stories, as
well as the life of Sholom
Aleichem himself. The book is
an important literary and
sociological work.
"The Story of The
Synagogue" by Geoffrey
Wigoder, Harper and Row.

book, with 34 color and 200
black-and-white illustrations
and photographs. It traces the
history of the synagogue and
its role in shaping and preserv-
ing the Jewish people.
The book, produced in con-
junction with the Diaspora
Museum in Tel Aviv, surveys
the synagogue from the time it
began — apparently during
the Babylonian exile in the
Sixth Century B.C.E. —
through the various periods in
Europe, Asia and 20th Century
synagogues around the world.
The story of the synagogue as
told in this book is, in many
ways, the story of the Jewish
people. It sheds light on
Judaism's survival despite un-
believable odds.
"My Friend, The Enemy"
by Uri Avnery, Lawrence Hill
and Co.
Uri Avnery, Israeli jour-
nalist and advocate of Palesti-
nian rights, believes that Is-
rael should negotiate with the
Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization and its leader, Yasir
Arafat, and accept an indepen-
dent Palestinian state
alongside Israel.
In this book Avnery provides
an accounts of the efforts he
and his political friends under-
took to advance the peace ef-
forts, including his meeting
with Arafat in Beirut in the
height of Israel's war in Leba-
non in 1982.
Claims Avnery: "We are
dealing here (the Mideast con-
flict) with an historical proc-
ess. Both sides are prisoners of
their history, of their traumas.
The Jews with their long his-
tory of persecution, their
memories of the Holocaust,
their ensuing craving for abso-
lute security, their unresolved
relationship to Gentiles, and
their own religion, find it as
difficult to face reality ration-
ally as do the Palestinians with
their grievances, humiliations,
and fathomless feeling of the
injustice done to them."
"The Guide to Everything
in New York" by Nancy
David and Joy Levitt, Adama
Books.
New York, probably the
most Jewish city outside Is-
rael, finally has a guide to lead
the confused and bewildered in
the maze of its Jewish events,
institutions, organizations,
stores and restaurants. The
authors focused only on the
Borough of Manhattan "in
order to maintain a manage-
able size," suggesting that the
reader "look at the number of
Jewish organizations in Man-
hattan alone, and you'll know
why."
The guide offers information
and selective looks at all as-
pects of Jewish life and its re-
sources in the city. The book is
