for Jacksonville music lovers. The
Center has arranged to present
two internationally known artists
in a concert of songs and dramatic
recitations at 8:30 P. M. Monday,
March 11, in the Center Auditor
ium, Chayele Grober, soprano, and
Sidor Belarsky, basso.
Madam Grober is an outstand
ing Jewish mime and one of the
creators of Habimah, the Hebrew
Art Theatre, which originated in
Moscow and is at present func
tioning in Palestine. Her inimi
table characterizations and inter
pretation of Jewish folk music
have won for her international
fame.
Sidor Belarsky is a former lead
ing basso of the Leningrad State
Opera Company and possesses a
rich voice often compared to that
of Chaliapin. Mr. Belarsky will be
heard in a number of Yiddish and
Russian folk songs and several
operatic selections.
Due to the limited seating capa
city of the Center auditorium, we
urge the public to make advance
reservations. Tickets may be pro
cured at the Center office and
from members of the Board.
Talmud Torah Plans Purim Play
A musical play dramatizing the
story of Purim is being rehearsed
by members of the Zimra Club and
students of the Center Relig
ious Schools. The parts of Esther,
Mordecai, Haman and Ahasuerus
have been assigned to talented
members of our school.
ST. AUGUSTINE
As announced in the previous
issue of the Southern Jewish
Weekly, St. Augustine’s Annual
1940 Purim Ball will be held in the
Civic Center, Wednesday evening,
March. 20th, being jointly spon
sored by the Congregation Sons
of Israel, the Daughters of Israel,
St. Augustine Lodge of B’nai
B’rith and the Young Judea Club,
with Israel Feiden as general
chairman and Mrs. H. Ross as
vice chairman. The net proceeds
are to be devoted for allocation
through the United Jewish Ap
peal and its constituent agencies,
the sponsorship having been en
larged with a view to securing the
benefit of the combined efforts of
the membership of the sponsoring
organizations. The situation in
Central and Eastern Europe is
tragic, and the needs of the vari
ous committees functioning there
are tremendous, the immediate
duty of the American Jewish Com
munity being to provide relief in
the crisis.
Thus it is the hope and expec
tation of the sponsorship that the
community, and its friends in the
proximity, will give the 1940 Ball
wholehearted support with a view
to making it a memorable success
and at the same time provide
funds that will help alleviate the
plight of the victims of modem
totalitarian warfare.
One of the interesting features
of a previous ball is to be repeated
this year. Entrants in the 1940
Queen Esther contest, Miss Bede
Feigenbaum, Hiss Myra Gamsey,
and Miss Florene Wexler, have
their various campaign managers
and the competition is daily be
coming more spirited. The winner
will be duly presented at the Ball,
together with her entourage.
It is expected that all those at
tending will find the various com
mittees have provided well for
their individual enjoyment of the
evening.
