For the first time In the history'of Columbus, a Chanukah pageant, was pre¬ sented at the school auditorium, with the children and Parent- Teacher-Ass'n., in attendance. This was brought about through the efforts of Mrs. Albert S. Goorey and Mr. M. H. (Mike) Schwartz. Miss Ina Albln prln- ijlpal of Falrwood Ave. school, and Mrs. Carlton Bode, president of the Falrwood Avenue P. T. A., were the enthusiastic patrons In the undertaking. The Jewish children ot the school were the participants in, a series of table¬ aux dramatizing the historic events leading up to the Inaug¬ uration of the "Festival of Chan¬ ukah". The presentation was not only a dramatic success but a moral triumph for good-will in that school The Jewish chlldrei), who In the past years have ¦ admired the Christmas pageants, received a feeling o( pride in the he- roe? passing In review In the Chanukah presentation. The Non-Jewish children, as well as their parents, seemed as though they had found some¬ thing new and wonderful of which they never heard before. It was If they had made a dis¬ covery that the Jew was the first to proclaim his belief Jn, and demonstrate hla readiness to fight for, the right of religious freedom. The event opened with an In¬ vocation by Rabbi Jerome D, Folkman, creating proper atmos¬ phere for the occasion. The first tableau pictured the Syrian en¬ voys In Modln and the reception they received from Mattathlas. This was followed by tableaux of the Maccabees and of the cleansing of_the Temple. Danc¬ ing and rejoicing with songs of Thanksgiving, accompanied by appropriate music, was present¬ ed in another tableaux. Then the Menorah was lighted while eight children, each representing a candle of the Menorah, recited yords describing the raeatUng of each candle. The Shamos, flayed by .little Marcla Llpson, used a flashlight to prompt each child t<j say his words as his turn came, until the final candle was depicted. The music for this pageant was played by Mrs. Isador A. Sealfon, aocomplished pianist and soloist well known to the Columbus public. Vocal music was rendered by Mrs. Sanford Llpson, versatile singer. In He¬ brew, Yiddish and English'. The script waa written by Mrs. Al¬ bert S. Gqprey, and the drama¬ tization effects were created and coached by Mr. M. H. (Mike) Schwartz. Rabbi Nathan Zellzer's help and encouragement played a great part In the success of this significant presentation.
