FRIDAY, NOV. 20, 1987

The latest edition of the
Writers' Journal compiled by
the senior adult division of
the Jewish Community
Center has a new look,
thanks to a gift from advertis-
ing executive Leonard
Simons.
For two years, Simons
underwrote the cost of prin-
ting the paperbacked, spiral-
bound book, and his grand-
daughter, Kathy Nagler, pro-
vided the cover artwork. In
gratitude to Simons and his
family for their donation, the
current Book Fair edition is
dedicated in memory of
Simons' wife, Harriette.
As in previous editions, the
book, created under the direc-
tion of Norma Goldman, pro-
fessor of Greek and Latin
languages and literature at
Wayne State University, is
filled with the creative
writing efforts of senior
citizens who belong to the
Writers Corner group which
meets at the Jimmy Prentis
Morris Branch of the Jewish
Community Center. There
are poems, Haiku, stories,
reminiscences, letters and
illustrations.
The current edition also
pays tribute to one of its long-
time contributors, Phillip
Goren, who contributes
English and Yiddish poetry to
the journal. In the booklet, he
is lauded for both his writing
and sculpting prowess.
In addition to Mrs.
Goldman, the Writers' Jour-
nal staff includes Mina Stone,
secretary; Bernice Konikow,
typist; and Claire Konikow,
artist. The editorial board in-
cludes Mrs. Goldman, Mrs.
Konikow, Sara Littman,
Mollie Pitzak and Ethel
Silber.
Contributors are: Marion
Blondy, Leslie Brooks, Emma
Cass, Eve Dishell, Frances
Driker, Esther Friedman,
Rose Goldsmith, Goren, Ger-
trude Gray, Leo Grossman,
Stella Himmelstein, Rose
Jaffe, Rae Kendler, Sarah
King, Mrs. Konikow, Albert
Lipton, Sara Littman, Bessie
Lopatin, Regina Mantel,
Sidney Miller, Bertha
Mishcovsky, Anne Paul, Mrs.
Pitzak, Hilda Reed, Jean
Rubach, Joseph Shapiro, Fani
Siegel, Ethel Silber, Helen
Singer, Sarah Slavin, Mrs.
Stone and Lillian Zellman.
Guest contributors are:
Elisheva Atlas, Evelyn
Caplan, Bernard Friedman,
Arthur Lipsitt, Eva
Mendelsohn, The Jewish
News' News Editor Heidi
Press and Kay Wishnick.

Following are samples from
the Writers' Journal:

Part Of You:

Arthur Lipsitt

As sure as there is sunshine
That follows summer rain
So, too, there will be
happiness
lb ease both grief and pain.
As sure as darkness of the
night
Gives way to light of day
The problems that perplex
your mind
With faith will fade away.
As springtime follows winter
And earth is born anew
You'll find you never walk
alone
If sincerity is part of you.

Let's Save
Yiddish:

Sarah King

Yiddish, our mammeloshen,
has the color, flavor and the
ability to describe joy, sorrow,
humor, mysticism or sarcasm
in a full-bodied vocabulary
reaching up to the most
beautiful prose and poetry as
well as descending to a
gossiping neighbor or haggl-
ing with a fish peddler.
It's the language used by
such world famous writers as
Sholem Aleichem, I.L. Peretz
and Mendele Mocher Sforim,
who produced some of the
finest literature ever written
over the past couple of cen-
turies. even today, Isaac
Bashevis Singer, who was
awarded a Nobel Prize for
literature a couple of years
ago, writes in Yiddish and
has his works translated into
many other languages.
It's hard to pick up an
English newspaper without
finding words borrowed from
Yiddish. Words such as chutz-
pah, mentsh, maven, shlep,
klutz, shlemiel and others. Is
there a language that can
match a phrase such as,hock-
nisht-ah-chineek or shiawg
zach lop in vahnt. Is there a
laguage, for instance, that can
condense five words into one,
such as "the lady who lives
upstairs" and call her
opstairsikeh.
There is some hope for Yid-
dish as there are a number of
universities that are teaching
Yiddish, clubs are forming to
have Yiddish conversation,
Hebrew schools are giving
