They included in their program songs, old and new, Israeli
dances, recitations from literature, and a talk by Professor
Joseph Cohen of the Tulane University of Louisiana in New
Orleans. In accordance with the now established practice,
Th e
Jewish Chronicle
issued a special
Book Week Supp lemen t
on the
occasion of the Week, and in this connection it is worthy of
special note that the South African monthly
Jewish Affairs,
in
inaugurating its first Jewish Book Month on the American and
English pattern, devoted a special issue to the Jewish Book.
From the major, as well as the minor, departures from the
traditional plan of the Jewish Book Week, it is clear that Anglo-
Jewry’s interest in the Jewish Book remains healthy and alert.
Thanks to this lively interest, British Jewry can look back on a
year fruitful in literary output and stimulated by cultural ac-
tivities.
