        Tayere Mendelyaner,

        Yitzhak Luden's new book "Der Geyeg Nokh Momentn" ("In Pursuit of 
        Moment"), has recently been published by Leyvik-Farlag in Tel-Aviv.

        The book is comprised of two volumes: Vol I: "Tele-Vizionern"
        ("Tele-Visionaries")(480 pages), and Vol II: "Di Eybike Rege" ("The 
        Moment") (484 pages). The book is a selected collection of the 
author's more
        than 200 articles, feuillitones, essays, reports, and travel
        correspondence - which together produce a colorful mosaic reflecting 
        social life and its problems in today's Israel.

        The author strives to bring to the reader "the other side" of 
history: the
        struggle confronting our day-to-day life which vanishes from our 
        together with the newspapers in which they are printed and after 
        are disposed of - as opposed to formal history recorded by 
historians based
        on dry government documents or social groups, and institutions.

        Yitskhok Luden's writing style emphasizes the paradoxes and the 
peculiarities of the "captured moment"
with a great deal of irony in a lively flowing Yiddish.
