In Our Portfolio
^ Our readers may look forward to many pleasant
hours with The B 'nai B 'rith Magazine. Here are
some of the new articles in our portfolio which will
be given early publication:
C| '' Intermarriage Among the Jews
of Soviet Russia" is the subject of a
contribution by Z. Wendroff.
"The smallest Jewish settlement
now has a couple of imported sons-
in-law, not from the Yeshivas of Mir
or Wolozhin, but Gentiles from the
interior of Russia," Mr. Wendroff
writes. "And the population looks
upon this condition as though it has
always been in vogue.'' Judaism in
Russia, however, is thriving, he
points out.
f B. Z. Goldberg writes of a com¬
munity of negro Jews who practice
all the Jewish ceremonies in the
Harlem black-belt.
<J In an article on 'Leo Ornstein
—Modernistic Composer," Heyman
Zimel tells of a "music ... as
amorphous and chaotic as the life it
seeks to interpret."
<J Under the title, "The Economic
Life of the Russian Jews," Dr. L.
Magriv compares the distressing
condition of the small-town Jewish
artisan and tradesman with the
happy, wholesome life of the Jewish
farm colonist.
<I The works of Jacob Plessner, the
eminent German-Jewish sculptor,
are discussed in an article by Israel Auerbach. Of
Plessner's sculptured portraits, Auerbach says: "They
are permeated with the soul and spirit of the men
they represent," and of his animal sculptures, he
writes: "... they contain an almost philosophical
critique upon human manners. ..."
