EXCH V0L.C4 NO. 10 MARCH C, 1986-ADAR125 Devoted to American and Jewish Ideals f v I ft Jewish Braille Institute Offers Free Haggadahs NEW YORK (JTA) - The Jewish Braille Institute will send a free haggadah in either large print or braille or on audiocassette, to any blind or visually-impaired adult or child who requests one, according to an announcement from the organization. Two editions of the haggadah are available from the Institute in large print: the 1 traditional seder, edited by Dr. Philip Birnbaum, and ' the Reform New Union Haggadah. Four seders are available in braille — one edited by the late Dr. Cecil Roth; a Conservative and a Reform edition, and a one- volume edition for children. There is also a haggadah on three audiocassettes, the Koren Haggadah,, recorded . by the late Cantor Paul Kwartin and the choir of the Union Temple in Brooklyn. At the same time, the Institute announced the forthcoming publication of the Five'Books of Moses in large type for the' severely' visually-impaired. These sets, too, will be sent, to individ- ' uals who request them free of charge. The Institute estimated that about 50,000 American Jews are severely visually impaired, which means they can read very' large print with the help of special prescription glasses. The English edition of the Five Books is scheduled to appear early this year, the Hebrew edition in 1987. The first printing of the books will be 2,000 sets in each language, with additional press runs to be added on demand. The publication of the Five Books of Moses is the first step in making the entire Bible available in large ' print, the Institute said.

Compiled From Wire Service Reports John Demjanjuk, the Cleveland autoworker accused of being "Ivan the Terrible" of Treblinka, denied in Israeli court March 2 that he had ever been at the Treblinka Death Camp or collaborated with the Nazis. Demjanjuk, 65, was accused in the Magistrate's Court of having taken part in "the murder of hundreds of thousands of civilians" in the ' gas chambers at the camp in Poland in 1942 and 1943. Israeli officials said they hoped the extradition of Demjanjuk, who was stripped of his U.S. citizenship for lying about his past, would pave the way for more Nazis to stand trial in Israel. Demjanjuk is the first person charged with war crimes to be extradited from the United States to Israel. Demjanjuk, who arrived . at Israel's Ben Gurion Airport on Feb. 28, was transported to Ayalon, a maximum-security prison 14 miles southeast of Tel Aviv, in a heavily guarded police convoy. While there he will be under strict surveillance in an isolated cell. While survivors of Treblinka and others have identified him as the sadistic guard, he maintains that the Friends Of Hillel To Host Reception For Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra Friends of Hillel will host its fifth annual Leon Schottenstein Memorial Reception on Wednesday, April 2, on the stage at Mershon Auditorium.

A reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. "Doors and Passages," a series of painted paper collages by New York artist Beth Haber opens Sunday, March 9, at the Jewish Center. "Memory is the connective fiber that links the present to the past," said Haber. "What interests me is the process by which actual history is transformed into cultural memory. For example, photos of the Lower East Side of three generations ago are more than buildings, streets and places; we see our ancestors voyage to a new land, one which represents freedom of religion and an opportunity to prosper." Haber uses doors as a metaphor for the process in which memories are saved or selectively weeded out. Doors also pose the question: What is left and what is carried across to the other side? Haber uses the door image and layered assemblages to echo the process of memory itself. "As snatches of events are reshaped and colored, they make a new image and a new reality," continued Haber. The pieces also share a common tradition with Hebrew illuminated manuscripts in their use of shimmering, illuminating colors and in their integration of works and images. But Haber's integration is different in that, the text is not illuminated but an aspect of quasi-Jewish history—a whitefish, a ram's horn—becomes the connective fiber between the generations. Haber's work frequently deals with memory, both individual and collective. She has excised nostalgia from her images, and instead of only looking to the past, her works are a vehicle for ideas about the future. Each piece is a delicately balanced fusion of color, texture, shape and idea. Haber lives in a renovated colonial tavern house outside Pbughkeepsie, N.Y., with her husband and three children. She studied at Goucher College and the College of the City of New York and undertook independent research in Jewish art and ceremonial art at Hebrew Union College—Jewish Institute of Religion in New York. The exhibition and sale of Haber's paintings will continue through April 9.
