"IN THOSE DAYS": A MUSICAL ABOUT A JEWISH BOY'S RESISTANCE TO ASSIMILATION IN 19TH CENTURY RUSSIA Original script, music, performance and video by Franklyn Wepner. "IN THOSE DAYS" is a musical show based on the Hebrew novel of the same name written by Yehuda Steinberg in 1904. It is an epic tale tracing the adventures of a Jewish boy named Samuel Horvitz who is a "Cantonist", one of the tens of thousands of Jewish boys who were kidnapped for service in the Tsar's army. Growing up far from his family in a Christian foster home in Central Russia, Samuel confronts all the trials which led most Jewish children who endured similar pressures to convert to Christianity. On the one side there were the physical and psychological tortures, and on the other side there were the seductive advances of a charming young Christian woman named Marusya. Samuel resists all of these forces, and after proving himself a hero in the Crimean War he returns home to his childhood shtetl, to his aged parents and to a very surprising joyful "shidduch" (traditional Jewish marriage). The musical score draws from Hassidic, Russian, and American musical theater traditions .

IN THE LISTING OF VIDEOS THE LETTERS (HQ) REFER TO A HIGHER QUALITY VERSION OF THE VIDEO, WHICH IS AVAILABLE TO YOU IF YOUR COMPUTER CAN HANDLE IT. ACT ONE: SCENE 1: 1896. A Jewish home in Pinsk, in the west of Russia. Yosie, who has been drafted into the Army, sits with his father Samuel Hourvitz, his mother and his girl friend. Samuel reminisces about how 50 years ago he himself was by force kidnapped at age 10 to be a "Cantonist", a Jewish recruit to be raised in a Christian family in central Russia until age 18 and then forced to serve many years in the Tsar's Army. SCENE 2: Flashback to 1846. The Jewish "Catcher" (who does the kidnapping for the Tsar) sings about difficulties he is having finding enough Jewish children to catch. SCENE 3: Despite his mother's efforts to protect him, Samuel finally is grabbed by the Catcher. Samuel is betrayed by the Rabbi, who substitutes him for a different Hourvitz who is a married Torah scholar with a child. SCENE 4: Russian soldiers force the Jewish children to say the oath of loyalty to the Tsar before an open Torah scroll. The Rabbi visits their prison cell to encourage them to behave like Joseph the Righteous in Egypt, and not give in to pressures to abandon Judaism. SCENE 5: The children journey to central Russia. Samuel prays for deliverance, and the angel Michael intercedes for him against the cruel guards. SCENE 6: Samuel, now age 18, is punished for refusing to eat pork by Anna, his fanatically Christian foster mother. Anna's husband Peter and daughter Marusya (also age 18) request leniency for Samuel from Anna. SCENE 7: Marusya and Samuel are falling in love. It is April. She sings to him, "It's Springtime". SCENE 8: Anna forces Samuel to eat roast pork, but he vomits it out. She orders him out of the house for the night. Marusya brings Samuel a bag of acceptable food in the woods, and asks if she can kiss him good night. Despite misgivings he agrees. Samuel hears the chanting of three other Cantonists who are singing psalms in honor of Tishah B'Av. Samuel confesses to them his growing love for Marusya. Jacob, their leader, warns him to resist temptation. ACT TWO: SCENE 9: Samuel is becoming an excellent soldier. Peter, Marusya and Samuel playfully act out the legend of Prince Oleg, who led the Russians against the Greeks. SCENE 10: The Sergeant catches Samuel talking in ranks and sentences him to 20 strokes with the birch rod. The Sergeant respects Samuel's ability as a soldier, and he reduces this to 10 strokes. Marusya intercedes on Samuel's behalf, and the Sergeant cancels the other 10 strokes also. This infuriates the anti-semitic Demitri, who calls Marusya a "Zhidovka" ("Jewess"), since there is gossip in the village that Anna is a convert from Judaism. Samuel beats up Demitri. SCENE 11: Peter returns home drunk and he is aggravated by Anna's self-righteous nagging. He also calls Anna "Zhidovka". To learn if Anna really is Jewish, Samuel one night pretends he is dreaming. He calls out loudly to his mother not to kill Anna for abusing him, since Anna also is Jewish. Samuel and Marusya see that when Anna overhears this she is deeply moved. SCENE 12: Anna confesses her Jewish past and shares with Samuel her anxieties that Peter's relatives, especially the bigot Demitri, may disposses her and Marusya if Peter should die before she does. SCENE 13: Marusya considers converting to Judaism. She will not, however, tell anyone about this until she fully has prepared herself. SCENE 14: Samuel's troop is leaving for the Crimean War. To Marusya he sings, "If I Return, To You I Return". Samuel proves himself to be a hero by grabbing the battalion colors from a fallen soldier and leading an assault. Demitri, who would like to be an officer, proposes to Samuel that he take credit for the heroism of Samuel. Samuel agrees, on condition that Demitri signs the house over to Anna. Wounded, Samuel arrives in the hospital, where Marusya is serving as a nurse. He gives her the note from Demitri. SCENE 15: Samuel is discharged from the army and he returns home to his parents' village in Pinsk. Despite his love for Marusya, he agrees to accept a Jewish bride which the Rabbi has found for him. SCENE 16: In the original novel on which this play is based Marusya does not convert, and the story ends tragically when Samuel marries the Jewish woman which the Rabbi has found for him. I have rewritten the ending. In the present version the Jewish woman which the Rabbi has found for Samuel turns out to be Marusya, and as was the custom in those days among religious Jews, Samuel joyously meets his bride for the first time at the wedding. PLAYWRITE'S COMMENT: True, the sequence of events in this melodramatic 19th Century story do certainly seem a bit contrived and unlikely from a 21st Century point of view. Nevertheless, the story does have value as a snapshot of an important moment in Jewish history, and it is especially relevant today in view of the serious manner in which it portrays the problem of assimilation. The play targets the lives of teenagers, a group especially susceptible.

BY YIQIAN ZHANG ANCHOR ANA COMPAIN-ROMERO You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy. “While Americans are watching the situation in Japan, many on the West Coast are trying to protect themselves in case of radiation fallout. People there are rushing to buy potassium iodide. It’s an over-the-counter drug that protects the thyroid from radiation.” (KRCG) In some places such as Los Angeles, the pills are sold out. But does potassium iodide even protect against radiation? A writer for medical blog WebMD says, not really. “It’s important to note that potassium iodide pills protect only the thyroid. They don’t prevent your body from taking in the radiation and don’t help prevent radiation damage to other parts of the body.” (WebMD) And a health expert tells Fox News- the risks associated with the medicine may not be worth it. “It can cause thyroid disease, it can cause allergies, it can cause stomach upset, know as you are vomiting it can cause diarrhea…” (Fox News) Regardless of whether the pills work- a health expert tells KSBW- the U.S. west coast isn’t exactly inside the radiation zone. “The evacuation zone they are moving people to is 12 miles from the nuclear plant. That’s what they are saying is a safe area. We are from five to seven thousand miles from there. Do the math.” (KSBW) But an editor for Bay Citizen argues- with all the ambiguous reports about the radiation levels, it makes sense- people are scared. “Experts we spoke to seem convinced that no matter what happens at Fukushima Daiichi, a radiation cloud blowing across the Pacific won't pose any health hazards in California. But since we don't really know exactly what level of radiation exposure might cause long-term health problems, I'm not sure I believe this.” (Bay Citizen) That editor went on to say definitive answers about radiation levels are in quote “maddeningly short supply.” Still - a BlogHer writer says that’s no reason to panic. “You can either run around like a headless chicken, hightailing it to the closest pharmacy so you can buy hundreds of bottles of potassium iodide, while you constantly wonder when the world will cave in, or you can do your best to be informed -- then take a deep breath -- and let it go.” (BlogHer) According to Google Insights, searches for “potassium iodide” and similar terms have increased more than 5,000 percent over the past week- but only in the U.S. Follow Newsy_Videos on Twitter Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

What is the most important information I should know about Valparin? * In rare cases, Valparin has caused life-threatening liver failure, especially in children younger than 2 years old. Children of this age may be at even greater risk for liver problems if they use more than one seizure medication, if they have a metabolic disorder, or if they have a brain disease causing mental impairment (such as Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease, Huntington disease, multiple sclerosis, or a brain injury or infection). * Valparin has also caused rare cases of life-threatening pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas). Pancreatitis can come on suddenly and symptoms may start even after you have been taking Valparin for several years. * Seek emergency medical attention if the person taking this medicine has nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, or loss of appetite, low fever, dark urine, clay-colored stools, or jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes). These symptoms may be early signs of liver damage. Some of these symptoms may also be early signs of pancreatitis. * Do not use this medication without your doctor"s consent if you are pregnant. It could cause harm to the unborn baby. Use an effective form of birth control, and tell your doctor if you become pregnant during treatment. * Do not stop taking the medication even if you feel better. It is important to take Valparin regularly to prevent seizures from recurring. Call your doctor promptly if this medicine does not seem to be working as well in preventing your seizures. * Swallow the capsule whole. Do not crush, chew, or break a capsule because the medicine may irritate your mouth or throat when you swallow it. * Carry an ID card or wear a medical alert bracelet stating that you are taking Valparin, in case of emergency. Any doctor, dentist, or emergency medical care provider who treats you should know that you are taking Valparin. * Avoid using other drugs that make you sleepy (such as other seizure medicines, alcohol, cold medicine, pain medication, muscle relaxers, and medicine for depression or anxiety). They can add to sleepiness caused by Valparin. http://www.4rx.ca/products/anticonvulsants/valparin
