Ed Zorinsky ElectedMayor; Rosenblatt Wins Council Seat Omaha — For the first time In many years, two members of the Jewish community have been elected to high positions In city government. Twenty five years after his father, John Rosenblatt, held a similar seat in city government, S t e v e Rosenblatt was elected this week to the Omaha City Council. Ed Zorinsky scored a landslide victory in the race for -Mayor, and became the first Jewish mayor In Omaha since

Johnny Rosenblatt was elected in 1954. Both n a t i v e Omahans, the two successful candidates have expressed similar desires "to bring new ideas to city government; to make Omaha a better place in which to work; a better place in which to live." For Rosenblatt, the C i t y Council race was his first venture into active politics. Zorinsky has been a successful candidate in-1968 for a seat on the Omaha Public Power District's Board of Directors. *

...In theWords of Nick Newman... By MICKEY GERELICK Nick Newman probably., would not Ir'e ben pleased with this issue of the Jewish Pre.s!

•:•

.• „ •

He would have been annoyed at a front - page which did not provide new information, new opportunities for thought and the expansion of learning. In spite of his prominent leadership roles, he was basically a very private person. He would have been embarrassed by the praise; uncomfortable about the publicity. He might even have written an angry "letter to the editor" questioning the propriety of the coverage and suggesting "a better way" to use newspaper space. There-in was the essence of Nick Newman. He was a doer. He bad strong beliefs and he acted on them. It explains his involvement in 10 many things. He bad.an uncompromising commitment to Improve the quality of human lite—for everyone—everywhere. He became involved because he knew no other ;way. His leadership roles in the Jewish community were based on his beliefs that Jews and Judaism were important to the world. As president of the Jewish Federation of Omaha he expressed some of his views at the annual Federation meeting/March 19,1972/ "I believe," he said, "that Judaism has been the single, most important, civilizing factor in Western civilization. I sbudder to think what the world would be like today if it was not for toe contribution that we Jews *ave . Wade to morality, ethics and learning over the years and tbat we continue to make today . . . I am satisfied tbat there Is a valid Jewish life to be led in the Diaspora. While'Jerusalem may be the heart of the Jewish people, -IsraeJ is not the sole repository of the mind and the spirit of Jews. We exist ail over the world, and ; we are important all over the world. "I dp not accept the prediction of sociologists who say that Jews are vanishing in middle America. I feel that a valid and important and meaningful Jewish life is possible here in Omaha. In a little community like this we can communicate with each other. 'We can work together. We can create in this community an example of a vital, creative Jewish commu/ nity." . ' Nick Newman closed his remarks at that Federation meeting with a favorite biblical quotation from the Book of Deuteronomy. . . . I set before thee life and death; the blessings and the curse. Therefore choose life— that thou mayest live—thou and thy seed . . .

"As Jews," Mr. Newman concluded, "we choose life by studying, by living and by loving Judaism. By being positive, optimistic and expansive Jews. If we do this we will live in the future£pf;Jews." '

In August of 1972, Mr. Newman wrote a letter to the Executive Committee of the Federation, resigning 'from the presidency as a result of his "unexpected illness." Thanking the members of the board and all others involved in Federation activities, Mr. Newman said,."We have come a long way. There i s much yet to do.but you have first rate leadership . . , You will accomplish your goals. "I remain convinced that'Federation and Community Center with, all of their Jewish programmatic facets, .receiving direction and Inspiration from their synagogues are among the strongest pillars of a vital Judaism here and in Israel. In a small elty like Omaha' peppie are more accessible and therefore, results are easier to achieve. Good luck." These were .the thoughts of Nick Newman about his Jewish community. He was involved because he thought it; had value. His contributions to Jewish life in this, community are too numerous to* mention. He did what he could in the short time he was given to lead us. , ... We are saddened by his untimely death; but we are painfully aware tbat a man'* life Is judged not by length of years, but by the way he lives the years he Is given.'Few men granted twice the 47 years alloted to Nick Newman can equal the quality of his life. The only meaningful monument we can build in memory of Nick Newman is to carry on his beliefs and his efforts—to build a vital Jewish community—to bring the ethical teachings of Judaism into every facet of daily

'Lommii* Redden Yiddish By CARL ALPERT

Haifa—A great revival of Yiddish'in Israel! Tel Aviv University has announced the establishment of a Chair in Yiddish Language and Literature, this in addition to a similar Chair which has already existed for some years at the University In Jerusalem. And then word reached us of the a f t e r n o o n Yiddish classes being given to children In Tel Aylv. Youngsters between the ages' of 8 and 14 stream to the Yiddish School, after they have finished their six hours or more at the government Hebrew school.

Nick Newman's life was permeated by his consciouness of the ethical mandates of the Jewish tradition. He was not content to limit their scope. His eyes saw no distinctions between Jew and non-Jew; black and white; American or stranger. But his soul discerned the distance between rich and poor; the advantaged and, the disadvantaged; the selfsufficient and the weak. And so he devoted his life to closing those distances. Other men leave sorrow among their families when they have departed from life. But in addition to sorrow, Nick Newman has left a great pride, both for his family and for the larger family of e v e r y o n e whose life he touched.
