Survive The Years

L

ooking back on
columns of yester-
years .. .
AUG. 26, 1977 ... "The
question raised in your col-
umn by Bernice Robinson,
`What is the real meaning of
the term, mezzuza?' deserves
an answer. The world mez-
zuza means doorpost. The
Torah (Deuteronomy 6:4-9)
teaches us the basis of our
faith: 'Hear 0 Israel. The
Lord Our God. The Lord is
One.' This portion ends with
the commandment, 'You shall
write them upon the door-
posts of your house and on
your gates.'

A scholar explains
an ancient
commandment.

"A mezuzza, therefore, as
the Code of Jewish law states,
is a piece of parchment on
which this portion from the
Torah together with
Deuteronomy 11:13-21 has
been handwritten by a scribe,
using a quill, in the same
manner that a Torah is writ-
ten. The time to properly
write this, on the average, is
between two and three hours.
The cost of the mezzuza will
vary, based on the quality of
parchment and the skill of
the scribe.
"Since it is impractical to
put this parchment directly
on the doorpost, a cover can
be purchased to properly
house the mezuzza scroll. The
mezzuza is neither a good
luck token, nor does it have
any direct bearing to the Ten
Commandments, other than
its proclaiming the message
of the First Commandment, 'I
am the Lord Your God . . : "

FEB.
"Finishing his day's toil last
week, cab driver Mark Rosen
found a large box on the back
seat of his hack . . . Luckily
enough, the address was writ-
ten on the outside and it not
being too far from where he
lived in Southfield, Mark
decided to take it there .. .
The woman who answered
the door turned out to be the
wife of a fellow cab driver .. .
and so Mark accepted an in-
vite to come in the house for
a moment . . . No sooner had
he entered the family room
when the walls sprang to life

with 'Surprise!' . . . Mark had
delivered his own birthday
cake to his own birthday
party!"
DEC. 2, 1977 ... "Hank
Baskin, now attorney for the
stars in local land, recently
almost took John Kelly's job
away when he subbed for his
client on WXYZ-TV's 'Kelley
& Co.' early morning talk
show.
"Hank's mom, Gladys
(Max), says he used to make
a microphone out of a stick
and do Walter Winchell's
famed 'Good Evening Mr. &
Mrs. North America and all
the ships at sea' bit, among
others, when Henry was 10
years old.
"Hank is a fine attorney
and a swell guy . . . Those
who've seen him on televi-
sion, though, can't imagine
him not being in the star
spotlight himself . . . and he's
really that good."
AUG. 15, 1975 ... "What
we need is another Northland
Playhouse or the likes of the
fine theater in the round .. .
Producer Kenny Schwartz
had some very good shows
with names that put all
others to shame . . . Movie
star James Coburn was a resi-
dent actor here at Northland
before going to Hollywood.
"There were good times
both front and backstage .. .
A classic was when Keefe 'Ed-
die Cantor Story' Brasselle
did 'The Tender Trap' . . . A
fish was used in every perfor-
mance . . . Not understanding
it to be a prop, the fish man,
instead of sending out a
whole one had fillets
delivered instead . . . The en-
tire company worked over-
time stapling the pieces
together . . . On stage, when
Keefe opened the box contain-
ing it for his bit, he said the
fish looked like 'riveted lox'."
JAN. 10, 1958 ... "When
Eleanor Riseman finally
keeps her word and retires as
director of the annual Infants
Service Group shows, there's
no doubt but what a plaque
will probably be hung up with
her famous last words, 'This
is definitely my last year' .. .
She started saying it back in
1949 in her 14th year as
director."
FEB. 20, 1976 ... "Client
of barrister Mort Eskin ask-
ed his wife, 'For our anniver-
sary, would you rather have a
mink coat or a trip to
Sweden?' . . . 'Let's go to
Sweden,' the wife replied. 'I
understand mink coats are
much cheaper there than
here." " 0
