KIRKUS REVIEW

Rabbi Singer, who now leads the Lakeside Congregation for Reform Judaism in Highland Park, Illinois, translates the problems of Ruth and Jerry Stern, students at Ellesmere Junior High, in terms of Judaistic ethics. Successive episodes deal with treatment of a fellow student whose father is in disgrace, fraternity-sorority membership, bitterness between rival schools and discussions on obligations of charity and on the acceptance of death. Neither theocratic nor dogmatic, this compilation deals more with man's relationship to man than with man's relationship to God.
