Content: [[page 3]-A sensation in Thalia Theatre! Whosoever has seen this work on the stage at the Thalia Theatre certainly has thought to himself: a play about Jewish life, Jewish behavior and Jewish characters! Sharkansky's work "Rokhel or The Flag of the Camp of Judah" does not begin with a rabbi and his wife who could not have children, or a king and queen that have three princes, three fools like Shmendrik, and one, a wiseman like Solomon. From the beginning Sharkansky leads us right into the middle of life and shows us, in living color, the situation of today's society in Russia in which the Jewish paupers suffer so much, and how they search for a way to get to America or to the Land of Israel. The Jew is no longer being beaten and trounced by the half-wild, ignorant and drunken "Great Russians" as they were earlier. Even intellectuals murder the Jew in cold blood because the holy love that knows no difference between Jew and Christian has tied the hearts of his daughter with a Jewish man in whom the young and honest Christian has found the ideal of tolerance and honesty.]
Content: A laurel: A Collection of tributes and opinions about Madame Bertha Kalish as Singer and Dramatist. Every step on the stage that I have taken together with the talented Bertha Kalish is a blessing and I know with great certainty that characterization will be realistic and natural. And I no longer see her as simply an actress, but as a vital vision that lives, breathes, feels and suffers...David Kessler, artist and manager
Content: [Thalia theatre. The idea to translate Victorien Sardou's drama Feodora had been stirring arond in my mind over five years ago when we first began adapting classic theatre like Shakespeare's "Othello" "Romeo and Juliet" and "Hamlet" for the Yiddish stage. But I could not realize my dream since there was no actress at the time that had the three talents necessary for the role: beauty, talent and youth. In the end I found my actress in Bertha Kalish who embodies blooming youth, enchanting beauty and a rich portion of talent. Bertha Kalish was the true Theodora that Victorien Sardou had imagined.]
