Yiddish theater also
flourished in Philadelphia,
Cleveland, Baltimore and
Chicago. Yiddish troupes
visited Argentina, France
and Australia.
The theaters, Miller writes
in The Detroit Yiddish
Theater, "played an impor-
tant part in the lives of the
Jewish immigrants; it
reflected their struggles in
the New World and became
an instrument of social pro-
test."
Littman's theater, faced
with the Depression and a
dwindling Yiddish-speaking
population, began experienc-
ing serious financial dif-
ficulties by the 1930s. Despite-

Detroit Jewish Chronicle, the
Yiddish theater closed in
1937.
Miller blames the theater's
failure on a decline in im-
migration due to the United
States' changed laws. "The
theater depended greatly on
new arrivals in the United
States," he writes. "And, as
this new audience diminish-
ed, so did the theater."

Yet Yiddish may be making
a revival. A new Yiddish play
recently opened in New York,
and others are said to be in
the works in several
American cities, but not
Detroit.
Those involved with the old
Littman theater wonder why
no Yiddish — or at least
Jewish — theater exists in
Detroit today. "It just kills
me," said one. "It just kills
me."

Ambush From Jordan
Kills Israeli Soldier

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Palesti-
nian terrorist attacks spread
to the generally quiet eastern
border with Jordan when an
Israeli soldier was killed and
a Bedouin tracker wounded
by gunmen who crossed into
the Arava and set up an
ambush.
Jordan announced over the
weekend that it had captured
the attackers, who managed
to slip back into Jordan
without injury.
In Damascus, the Fatah
Uprising, led by Col. Saed
(Abu) Musa, claimed respon-
sibility for the attack, which
occurred just inside the
Israeli border, some three
miles south of Moshav Hat-
zeva, in the desert valley that
stretches from the Dead Sea
to Eilat.
The dead IDF soldier, a
reservist identified as Sgt.
Maj. Oren Lior, 24, of Kfar
Sava, was laid to rest in his
home town Sunday.
Yassir Arafat and other of-
ficials of the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization say that,
while they may have agreed
to halt terrorist actions
against Israeli civilians, at-
tacks against IDF soldiers are
part of legitimate guerrilla
warfare against the Israel ar-
my and will continue.
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin said Israel holds Jor-
dan responsible for the inci-
dent and that Jordan should
take energetic measures to
detain the attackers.
Meanwhile, unrest in the
territories reached a new

peak over the weekend, when
six Palestinians were killed in
clashes with Israeli security
forces.
Two Palestinian youths
were shot to death and a third
youth was wounded in the
village of Silat Hartiya, near
the West Bank town of Jenin.
But the focus of unrest in
the territories this past
weekend was the Gaza Strip,
where four Palestinians were
killed and scores wounded in
clashes with security forces.
In one incident, Palestinian
saboteurs burned down part

of a large tomato-packing
house at Moshav Netzer
Hazani, in the Katif bloc of
Jewish settlements north of
Khan Yunis.
The fields of Arab villagers
were destroyed at Deir el-
Balah, in an apparent act of
reprisal.
Three youths were killed
and 12 wounded in clashes
with security forces in the
Sheikh Radwan neighbor-
hood of Gaza on Saturday.
On Sunday, three border
policemen were stabbed, ap-

parently by one man, while
chasing rioters in Gaza's
Tufah neighborhood. The
police eventually shot the
stabber to death.
