PAGE TWO THE TRANSCRIPT December 15, 1947 Dee Seminar Explains Zionist Theories Since November' 2 of this year, the Seattle Zionist Council has been sponsoring an entirely new approach to the problem of dissemi- nating Zionism. This approach is not only new to Seattle, but to the entire Pacific Coast. For this rea- son, the Council feels the seminar should be of paramount importance to the Jewish community as a whole. This approach has been named the Seminary School of Zionist Studies and operates every other week with the next session to be held Sunday, December 28, at 2:30 p.m. The faculty is made up of Rabbi Samuel Horowitz, Dr. Ruth Levy, Dr. A. Lagawier, Mr. J. Ra- dinsky, Mrs. M. Patashnik, Mrs. S. Porush and Mr. F. Bergman. Stu- dent body consists of members, ranging from 16 to 60 years of age, of all the Zionist organizations in Seattle. The courses offered are He- brew Literature, History of Zion- ism, Modern Problems in Zionism, and Palestinian songs and dances. Mr. William Rosenblum, new Se- attle Youth Commission director explains: "The Jewish State is just a few months away from becoming a reality. As long as most of us can- not enter into the actual formation of the state, it would be most ap- propriate were we at least to learn of the problems they are facing, and the culture and cultural center they have built. The session on Decem- ber 28 in the Talmud Torah will .... definitely convince you that this new approach to Zionism is of ex- treme note and importance in an already active Pacific Coast Zionist movement." A Palestinian film will also be shown as an extra attraction at the December 28 session of the Seminar. Isaac A. Lurie, Pioneer, Passes Mr. Isaac A. Lurie, 78, passed away November 26 after a brief illness. Mr. Lurie, well known in Seattle, came to the Northwest in 1889 and engaged in the jewelry business from which he later re- tired.

RICHARD QUINT One of the loveliest of the Fall weddings took place in the Spanish Ballroom of the Olympic Hotel on November 23 at. eight o'clock when Miss Esther Golombeck, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Golombeck became the bride of Mr. Richard Quint, nephew of Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Rose. For the beautiful candlelight ceremony, performed by Rabbi Raphael Levine, the bride was at- tired in ivory satin with tight bod- ice and very full skirt, her veil descending into a long train from a coronet of seed pearls. Her bou- quet was of white orchids, lilies of the valley, and bridal roses, with long streamers of stephanotis. The maid of honor was her young vister, Miss Selma Golombeck who wore American Beauty velvet with cap sleeves and full draped skirt, and a coronet of pink roses and chrysanthemums matching her bou- quet. The bridesmaids, Miss Mari- lyn Quint, sister of the groom, Miss Eileen Lewis, Mrs. Shirley Hodes, and Miss Louise Lotzcar, wore identical dresses of dark green velvet with coronets and bouquets of gold-colored roses and chrysan- themums.
