Gordin, Jacob Mikhailovich

1853 - 1909, American writer of Yiddish plays, b. Russia. He was for some years a teacher and a newspaper writer in St. Petersburg, Odessa, and elsewhere. In 1880 he founded the Bible Brotherhood, a reform movement of Judaism. After the movement was suppressed, he left Russia in 1891 for the United States. In New York City he found the Yiddish stage in need of good plays, and for the rest of his life he wrote (more than 70), translated, and adapted plays in the vernacular. Among the best of these were Siberia; God, Man, and the Devil; The Jewish King Lear; The Jewish Sappho; and The Kreutzer Sonata (an English translation was produced in 1907). His collected plays were published (1910) in Yiddish in New York.

Shva Salhoove is the wife of Eran Gordin, grandson of Bela nee Shulman and Meir Gurevich of Kurenets, and Lija (Lola) nee Chait and Salomon Gordin of Lithuania and Latvia.

Life in Venice


By Dalia Karpel

Only in Venice was writer and poet Shva Salhoove able to free herself from a tormented childhood and a misguided love. Her new book describes this marvelous journey.
In May 1999, Shva Salhoove traveled to Venice, her first trip abroad after 11 years during which she insisted on remaining at home. Salhoove, 39, an author, poet and writer of articles about Israeli art, won a trip to Venice that year after writing an article for a catalog on an exhibition by Philip Rantzer and Simcha Sherman, which was on show at the Venice Biennale. But even in this city of water, as in her life in Jaffa, Salhoove did not rush to leave the room where she was staying.

"I didn't see St. Mark's Square," she says. "I'm a person of home and window, and the entire street somehow is enfolded through the window like an internal landscape. I sat in the apartment in Venice next to the window, and I wrote footnotes for an essay on Bialik's poetry. I saw Venice through closed windows."

Her Venice experience turned out to be a personal reckoning and gave rise to a book of poems, "Ir U'neshia" ("City and Oblivion"), which is being published this month by Keter publishers.

"Until then I was a person who never comes home, a kind of Odysseus," says Salhoove. "I was someone who is always a displaced person. I invented my childhood in the ma'abara [transit camp] at Akir (today Kiryat Ekron). I invented an entire world, and entirely erased the reality of terrible loneliness that I experienced as a girl at the Boyer boarding school in Jerusalem. I lived inside books for many years, and I denied that I was a fool for books."

In Venice all her self-deceit dissolved: "I understood that I, as a woman, cannot leave my home. I am my home, and my home is wherever I am," she says. "For 12 years I have been living in a certain apartment in Jaffa, married to Eran Gordin, a clinical psychologist, and when I would go to visit my parents in Kiryat Ekron, I would say to him that `I'm going home,' and again and again I expressed signs of not being settled. In Venice I understood that I have a home and I have a path, which is not the path of loss."

The work on her book freed her from romantic ideas of unrequited love and made room for another sort of love: "When you understand that the breakdown of your ego is the result of a certain set of values, then you exit from the picture of romantic love," she says, "and you enter the space where there is a little more life and more reality. I don't have a child of my own yet. My university studies are my child, but I am now preparing a place for a child. A place has opened up inside me."

Salhoove wrote "City and Oblivion" as part of a novel of letters about a young woman, Anna Brauer, who lived in Berlin in the 1920s, came to Israel in order to settle here, but after a short stay returned to Europe. In her letters, Brauer writes poems that she doesn't publish. Salhoove took the poems that she had written for her heroine and collected them in her new book of poetry, because "at a certain stage, I was able to part from the mask and not to be like her, a writer who doesn't publish." And so the book of poetry describes a tour in Venice that slowly turns into a whirlpool of memories and passion. Three axes meet in the book: Salhoove's childhood memories of the ma'abara; her Jewish-traditional-spiritual world, including her insights about the ritual infrastructure of Judaism (she is also a doctoral student in Jewish philosophy); and her strong attraction to Israeli art.

Revolution in the ma'abara

The Hebrew name "Shva" (as in the "queen of Sheba") was given to her by her parents, natives of Libya. Her family name, "Salhoove," means "flame." She is stormy, emotional, a flame. It's somewhat difficult to stop the outburst of words and the complex sentences that flow from her. Her Hebrew is metaphorical and somewhat Bialik-like ("I speak a kind of poetic language. I can't apologize for that all my life"). Her hair is black and flowing, and her face is full of expression. She smokes Noblesse cigarettes one after another, and gulps quantities of black coffee. She is a large woman (after shedding about 15 kilograms this year), wearing a wide dress with a generous decolletage.

Her parents, Malka and Yosef Salhoove, came to Israel from Libya as children, moving from one ma'abara to another until they settled in Akir. Yosef completed his high-school education when he was a first sergeant major in the Israel Defense Forces; Malka (nee Yamin) studied only a little, because her father thought that studying was tantamount to sending a young woman out into bad company.

"Akir had a large community of Yemenites, and the place absorbed all the tragedy of the aliyah [immigration] to Israel, but also absorbed Zionism like crazy," says Salhoove. "What people disdain as Messianism is the most effective Zionism there was and the way to survive a difficult emigration. In other words, it's a real love of Zion. I grew up below a military airport, and with every plane that passed and emitted a sonic boom, my father said that it strengthened his ears."

Her mother Malka was the first revolutionary in the ma'abara. At the age of 16 she left her father's home and went to learn how to read and write in evening courses. She also found work and learned to dance.

"As a working girl, they treated my mother in the ma'abara like a loose woman," says Salhoove. "When one of the women came to offer her pious son as a match, my mother said to her: `I dance, I smoke, I work and I like the good life,' and from that moment, all the women in the ma'abara kept their distance from her. She hasn't changed - she says that she is 64 years old and nobody is going to tell her what's good and what's bad. She believes in God, and God believes in her. When I come to visit and I pester her about Shabbat observance, she answers, `For you I'm a real secular woman.'"

Salhoove says that what her mother calls "secular" is a person who is ignorant of halakha (Jewish law): "She is not a scholar, nor did she compensate herself with evening courses for those who want to return to religious sources. She doesn't observe Shabbat, but she votes for Shas, because she believes in God."

Jerusalem played a central role in her parents' faith. "When I went with my father for tests at Boyer, we went first to the Western Wall. When they would come to visit me, we would go to the Wall. All their lives my parents talked about their desire to be buried in Jerusalem. It came from my grandparents, who were crazy about Zion. For me to be inside the poetry of Rachel [who wrote during the pre-state period] is like my father being inside the sacred writings of Begin [late prime minister Menachem Begin, who led the Etzel pre-state underground] and inside a prayer book, and within the ethos of sacred Zionist heroism, with all the symbolism that we identify as chauvinism. The religious story is a story of Mizrahi [Jews of North African and Middle Eastern origin] identity."

Salhoove admits that she herself has undergone a change: "For years I shrugged off the exaggerated simplicity of this sort of religious nationalism," she explains. "Today I don't hesitate to call it nationalism. When I was 13, there was a simulation of an election campaign at Boyer, and each of us represented a different political group. This enlightened me, and I understood that my parents were fascists. It caused harsh quarrels between us, and in recent years I have understood that that is no way to talk to one another.

"As long as I can remember myself I've been religious. My father is very religious, and I have always identified with him. From a young age I was aware of the battle between him and my mother on the subject of religion, and I always sided with him. She traveled on Shabbat and watched television, and he observed Shabbat zealously. From childhood I've been enchanted by the aesthetics of religion. The synagogue was the most beautiful place in my eyes. A world without ceremony is a nightmare. I don't come to exhibition openings because I don't see that as ceremonial. I was drawn into faith in the simplest way.

"I live with a husband who is a scion of the Third Aliyah [a wave of immigration to Israel from 1919-1923]. His forefathers were atheists who established Moshav Bitzaron. To him my faith is as strong and profound as his faith in the freedom of man without a god, in man as the writer of law. The question is, in whose hands is the law? `In the hands of Rav Ovadia' [Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the spiritual leader of Shas] is an answer that convinces me. And my husband Eran also has a convincing answer. I can say that the positions of each side demand an entire world and can exist together in the world of the Holy One, Blessed Be He."

Child with dreams

Salhoove was an exceptional child, the middle of three children in the family. "I knew how to read at the age of three and a half, and a year later I knew how to write, and at the age of five I forced my poems on the kindergarten teacher at kabbalat Shabbat [a ceremony for welcoming the Sabbath]. I expected praise, but the reaction of the children was sharp and hostile opposition. In fifth grade an entire class didn't speak to me."

When she was 12, her parents decided to send her to study at Boyer, which had a reputation for having many gifted students.

"I was a child with many fears and many dreams, and I grew up in a protective family. To come to Boyer without previous preparation was terrible. In the middle of eighth grade, I was terribly homesick and my parents didn't let me return, claiming that there was no academic high school in the area, and there really wasn't. To send me to the boarding school was part of being accepted by Zionism, an involvement that is expected for a Jew in the Land of Israel. So my parents didn't have many children. They chose the path of modernization, and as luck would have it, this rift took place for me at the height of such meaningful cultural formation. My younger brother, who was born in 1971, was already in the first group of children from Kiryat Ekron who weren't sent to a boarding school far from home, but studied in the regional high school."

Salhoove's life at Boyer was not easy. On the one hand, she decided to stifle her homesickness in order to succeed there; on the other hand, she was independent, opinionated, rebellious. In 10th grade she gave up and returned home. She couldn't bear the conformism, the education toward self-sacrifice for the homeland. She completed matriculation and was drafted.

During her military service as a reporter for the army magazine Bamahaneh, she wrote under an assumed name, Bracha Peled, for Haaretz Magazine, which was then edited by Meir Schnitzer. Later Salhoove wrote about theater for the now-defunct Hadashot. Journalism was her heart's desire, but she didn't get a job and had difficulty making a living as a freelancer. In 1986, she began to study cinema at Beit Zvi, left and went into a crisis.

"I understood that I could supply a good journalistic piece only once every two months, and then I went to Amsterdam and got stuck there for two months, and wrote a wonderful story. After two years I understood that the horror known as `a film budget' was not for me, and that the only thing I wanted to do was to write. I also understood that the only horizon for a person like me was a Paradise-like prison, which is the university."

Was this also an emotional crisis?

Salhoove: "I had a crisis in Tel Aviv that lasted about a year. I didn't do a thing. We lived on Luntz Street, and all my friends lived near Sheinkin, and for me everything lost its flavor, and I knew too many things. I had to tie up all the loose ends and leave secularism. The option of myself as a person who determines his fate with some kind of complete freedom, that was over. If I was going to study at the university, I was going to study Jewish philosophy. I started in 1992, and I'm now working on my doctorate, about the transition, in the wake of the destruction of the Temple, from the religion of the Temple to the Mishnah, to the religion of the Sages."

`Agent of modernization'

After overcoming the crisis, she returned to her mother's house. It was no longer the house in the ma'abara, which she had missed so much at boarding school and which was located in a beautiful Arab fruit orchard with a plethora of loquat, lemon and berry trees, near the tremendous orchard of Moshav Bilu, surrounded by huge cypress trees.

"I remembered that there was no end to the beauty. My father fenced in a plot of land near the house and raised vegetables and flowers. People lived in the huts of the ma'abara until the 1970s, because they hoped to stay on the land and to keep their small plots of land. The only one who wanted to leave the hut was my mother, who dreamed about an apartment in a housing project."

Her mother, says Salhoove, was the first "agent of modernization" in the family: "With the first money that she earned from her work as a cleaning woman, she bought an electric mixer and a washing machine. She stopped making couscous, because the preparation takes half a day. She took upon herself the management of the house, and because of her, [my parents] live today in a private house of 400 square meters with a garden. She played the stock market with the salary of a first sergeant major, and built a house that is an expression of Mizrahi luxury: three guest rooms, two American kitchens, drapes all over and six-kilowatt lamps."

In that house, lamenting the beloved hut of her childhood, with a whole floor to herself, Salhoove sat at the age of 26, after the emotional crisis in Tel Aviv, and wrote her first book, "Onat Hameshugaim" ("April Season"). The book was dedicated to a soul mate from Boyer, Moshe, who committed suicide at the age of 27 by injecting air into his veins, after years of failing to adapt to various Israeli frameworks. Salhoove wrote the book in such a way that the hero doesn't even acclimate to the mental institution, where the nurse says to him, "First of all, start keeping to a schedule."

Salhoove, fortunately, had a home to return to. "It's possible that had I been a man, I would have been forced to find myself without a livelihood and without assets that guarantee me the ability to write," she says. "I returned to my parents' home in 1986, and for three years I wrote on a balcony that overlooks the lawn and the dew."

Even today, she claims, she isn't preoccupied with finding work, which leaves her time for writing."

You're still somewhat spoiled, aren't you?

"I see myself as a person who has given up all luxuries. I have no driver's license and no cell phone. I don't buy anything that isn't for my studies. Every cent I get for writing articles for catalogs or for art books I spend on cigarettes. The way in which I am dedicated to writing allows me to feel that it's all right that my husband supports me. My older sister worked hard to achieve financial independence, and she built up a business and traveled all over the world. For me, these things aren't an option. I am completely taken up with studies and with writing. I can't say that I'm more spoiled than my sister, because I never wanted the kind of effort that leads to financial independence. For me, a book is a goal. The doctorate and the writing are the goals."

What are you trying to do in your writing?

"To purify and to describe. There is something in the metaphor of purifying dishes in honor of Pesach. My life has a tendency not to lose anything, and writing is the place where I can feel. You really are writing for people whom you love and you are with them when you write. It's a space of presence. And when I open the Mishnah tractate Ta'anit, which is the main topic of my doctorate, or when I peruse a book by Gershon Scholem, it's like being in an empowered space of life.

"I define myself as an author, and I claim that a Hebrew author writes in the language of poetry. The word `soferet' [author] suits me, because it's connected in Hebrew to `sefira' [counting]. The Bible was sealed with its letters: Everything was counted, and from that point of view, I am faithful to the word `soferet' - even when I write an essay, when I do research and when I write what are called poems. The place to which I aspire is the place where language is life."

Living from rumors

In her other field, Israeli art, Shva Salhoove has written about artists such as Arie Aroch, Danny Karavan, Rafi Lavie, Nurit David, Yehudit Sasportas, Avner Ben Gal.

"All my tremendous love for cinema, and for the place of plastic imagery, and for the enigma of the picture - all that has been concentrated for me into a great love of art," she says. "From the first article that I wrote for Studio in 1993, I have focused on the duality of Israeliness and Jewishness, Mizrahi and Ashkenazi qualities, femininity and perversion, culture and taboo, everything that interests me, and I was able to bring in my love for journalism and cinema."

Writing about art, she says, means also "being inside the most profound rift of Israeli life: the rift between Jewish identity and Israeli identity and the strange, monstrous link that is created between these two identities. The tension between the Mishnaic utopia and the fragments of the Zionist utopia is the tension to which I return when writing about art."

When she speaks of a Jewish state, says Salhoove, she is speaking about "a hope for a possible perfect order. But at the same time, I am speaking about the infinite rhythm of this event. There is no reason to hasten the end. Zionist created a Messianic moment, a catastrophic moment of apparently complete fulfillment of the Messianic dream. We are living every day with the destructive consequences of that miracle. I think about it, I look at it, I can't do anything but write and describe what I see, about the scorched land, the land of the Palestinian and Israeli sabra, which has become a foundation for death. I'm writing about that now for an exhibit by Karavan in Valencia."

But you emphasize that you are very optimistic.

"I live in Jaffa in a mixed building, and my perspective of our conflict with our Arab neighbors is not only of the last two years of struggle over the divine image. It's a struggle that has been going on since the sixth day of Creation, and always in shameful circumstances. The first murder was the murder of one brother by another, and that doesn't dull the horror of the present. It only shows you how much of a luxury despair is. Jaffa is an occupied city just as much as is Beit El [a city in the West Bank], and the mission of the return to the land hasn't ended yet, and we are in the midst of the terrible battle it causes. I can't give up and say `We have lost the divine image.' We still have something to lose.

"Now we can still do justice by the Palestinians. We have to reach negotiations when the door is still open. We mustn't fall into the entirely black picture, because then it allows all the blood. Despair always gives rise to more despair, and to draw the political picture in the country as though hatred and the occupation have won, and we will remain under siege forever, is a picture that I'm not willing to accept, neither from the right nor from the left."

Does the Mizrahi Democratic Rainbow [an organization demanding equal rights for the Mizrahi community] fascinate you?

"I'm not suited to the Mizrahi Democratic Rainbow. I have nothing of hatred, not for Ashkenazim, not for Zionism and not for Ben-Gurion [Israel's first prime minister]. I am not post-Zionist. I want justice for all. The members of the Rainbow have embarked on a struggle over state lands, and over public housing and over education, and they are engaged in important social campaigns. To belong to such a body is to belong to a political family, whereas I belong to the family of one Jewish people."

Why do you cut yourself off?

"I went and cut myself off from any encounter with machoism. I have a greengrocer named Abed, and I travel to the university, and all the Israeliness within which people wage war in built-up areas in their everyday lives, and don't differentiate between the war in Gaza and the narrow aisle in the bus - is very difficult. People here for some reason are sure that they have a right to break in forcibly everywhere. I have stopped dealing with that. It's an eternal price that we are paying for the barbarism of modernism, as Walter Benjamin said."

Since the murder of Yitzhak Rabin, you don't watch television.

"Nor do I read newspapers, I live as in the past, from rumors. My husband Eran reads newspapers and watches television, and I can draw what I need from him."

Rachel Gordin

Artist Rachel Gordin was born and raised in Moshav Bitsaron Father; Meir Gurevitz  mother Bela nee

 Shulman .  She embarked on her artistic career with a series of paintings "Earth - Man". In her search for the appropriate colors and materials she went out to the yard, collected lumps of earth, mixed them with glue and pigments, and applied them with her hands onto the canvas, without using a brush.

Eventually she began to paint an "ecological" series, to protest against the damage man causes to nature, which is also a metaphor for the injury man inflicts on man: forest fires and logging that turn green vegetation into dead skeletons and scorched land. Some of the paintings feature border fences as well. Many of them evoke a sense of rift, collapse, destruction and considerable melancholy.

Most of Gordin's works are characterized by rich, warm colors, although her palette is limited. She uses mostly industrial paint.

Gordin participates on a regular basis in artistic events on behalf of peace, such as "Our Answer is Peace" at the Lebanese security fence, and the peace project at Givat Haviva.

Gordin is currently working on a series of paintings entitled "Rorschach" (Inscapes), evocative of the bleak mood encompassing daily life. The works are composed of diptychs of identical paintings, with one painting seemingly the "monoprint" of the other. These works feature rich colors and imaginative shapes and textures. Viewers can interpret these pictures freely, according to their imagination.

Gordin's work has recently reached a new peak of intensity, due in large part to the pressure of frequent exhibitions in Israel and abroad.

 

Rachel Gordin

Born on moshav Bizaron. Graduate of the Art Teachers Training College. Studied in the Avni Institute of Art, Tel Aviv and in the Artists' Studios, Ein Hod. Deals with sculpture with Various materials and painting mainly with mixed media. Between the years 1960-1978 taught art on the WIZO vocational high school, Rehovot. From 1970 - teaches Ceramic Sculpture on the Rehovot Cultural Center on behalf of the Art Cathedra. Member of the Israeli Painters and Sculptors Association

Inna Svetlova was the pseudonym used by Molly Riffel-Gordin.

She was born in Riga in 1938 into a Jewish family, but grew up in an orphanage
having miraculasly escaped the Nazi occupation. She graduated from the
Leningrad Institute of Theatre, Music and Cinematography. In 1963 she
immigrated to Israel and in 1968 joined the Radio Liberty.
In his book Sparks of Liberty: an Insider's Memoir of Radio Liberty ,
Gene Sosin recalls that, "During the next twenty-five years, Molly
became well-known among Soviet listeners as Inna Svetlova; her
programs were among the Radio's most popular, and she regularly
received a large amount of fan mail. She told me that in 1992, when
she could at last visit Moscow , her greatest thrill came when she was
standing in line in front of a food store and chatting. Another woman
shopper recognized her voice and shouted in delight, 'You're Inna
Svetlova!'"
Besides programs about youth, women and Jewish experience in the
beginning of 1990s, she was editing the program "Kontakty" (Contacts).
The program was a call-in program for Russian listeners to discuss
their concerns about life, social situation, and living standards. In
1997 Inna was shot and killed in the Prague underground on her way to
the Radios, and the program was closed down.

Re: Jews - Rezekne - Gordin and Bookmuz
Posted by: Tela Zasloff Date: January 16, 2000 at 07:32:53
In Reply to: Jews - Rezekne - Soloway or Solvej by Lavi of 2062 I am also researching my grandmother's past, and she was also from
Rezekne. I will be traveling to Riga and Rezekne in July 2000, and
wonder if you have any information or advice for me in my search for
my grandmother's past in Latvia. Perhaps you have run across her
family in your own research. She was Sylvia "Tsiveh" GORDIN, born in
Rezekne in 1890, daughter of Aaron Sholom Gordin and Brocha Liebe
Cahan. Her sister was Chaya, married to Aaron Shneer, and her brothers
were Hendel, Tsalel and Samuel. She married Abraham Bookmuz/Berman
after they emigrated to the U.S. in 1911, 1912. Some family members
remained in Latvia, in Riga, and were lost in the war or emigrated to
Israel and the U.S. I want to learn more about Rezekne and the Jewish
community Sylvia Gordin grew up in, going back into the 19th century
as far as I can. Thank you. Tela Cohn Zasloff

This year I completed and self-published a book about my grandmother,
entitled "Tsiveh Gordin/Sylvia Berman", who was born and grew up in
Rezekne
(Rezhitsa) and emigrated to the U.S. in 1911, to marry my grandfather,
Abraham (Buchmuz) Berman, who was also born in Rezekne. I researched
this
book for five years, including a trip to Latvia and St. Petersburg to
look
up family records, general documents on Rezekne, and meet a second
cousin.
I collected a lot of information over those years, including registry
documents and many photographs from government archives, Holocaust
survivor
documents from Israel, and videotapes made by a Latvian, who
interviewed a
few Jews remaining in Rezekne, including in the cemetary.
Where would be the best place to deposit all this information I've
collected, and my book? I printed off only enough copies (50) of the
book
for my family and have none left, but do have about 200 covers printed
and
have the book on disk. There are about 40 pages of text, including my
grandmother's journal entries when she returned to Rezekne, Riga and
St.
Petersburg to visit her family in 1934, my own writing about my trip
there
in July 2000 and my memories of growing up with my grandmother, tape
transcripts of my grandmother remembering details of her childhood and
immigrant life in the U.S., tributes and memories about my grandmother
from
her whole family, and a family tree. There are about 40 more pages of
photographs; the oldest ones are of my grandmother's father and uncle,
dated
in the 1890's.
I want very much to spread this book, and the research information I've
collected, in the world Jewish community. Please advise.

 Dear Gordins:
My book "Finding the Jewish Shakespeare: the Life and Legacy of Jacob Gordin" has just been published in a very handsome edition by Syracuse University Press.  Information about the book is available on my website; the book itself can be found at Amazon.com.  Anything you can do to publicise the book would be a great help.  I hope you enjoy it.

BIOGRAPHY Natalie Wood: A Life. By Gavin Lambert. Knopf. $25.95. 384 pages. The verdict: A balanced, critical portrait by a good friend. When the biographer of a popular movie star receives the cooperation of the star's family, it's often a bad sign. It can mean the family has a say in the project and that punches are pulled, blemishes concealed and controversies covered up. In the acknowledgments of "Natalie Wood: A Life," Gavin Lambert writes, "This book owes its primary existence to Robert Wagner," who was married to Wood when she drowned in 1981 and who gave the author access to Wood's personal papers. The author, who has also written biographies of George Cukor and Norma Shearer and whose screenplay for "Sons and Lovers" was nominated for an Oscar, became friends with Wood when she starred in 1965's "Inside Daisy Clover," which was based on his novel. That was the start of an almost 20-year friendship. In the book, Lambert certainly reveals a deep love and respect for his subject, but he also produces a balanced, warts-and-all portrait. Best of all, he uses his close personal and professional ties to the actress to give the work a real sense of sincerity and emotional depth. Obviously, the central character in Lambert's drama is Wood, who was nominated for Academy Awards for her work in "Rebel Without a Cause," "Splendor in the Grass" and "Love With the Proper Stranger." She died tragically, in a drowning accident at age 43 in 1981. However, much of the book focuses on a major supporting player: Wood's mother, Maria, whose volatile, quirky personality had a profound impact on the actress. Natalie Wood was born in 1938 in San Francisco. Her mother, whom Lambert portrays as having a "flair for dramatic fabrication," came to America in the wake of Russia's 1917 revolution. She married a laborer named Nick Gurdin before giving birth to Natalie, but Lambert shows that Wood's real father was probably a dashing mariner known as "the Captain," with whom her mother had an ongoing affair. The marriage was tense and Gurdin was prone to violent, drunken outbursts, which helped to create in Wood a lifelong contorted sense of love, loyalty and security. Wood's mother also instilled in her daughter other, more irrational fears, including a prophetic fear of "dark water," which supposedly arose from a gypsy's dire warning. Maria was a driven stage mother, and her ambition helped Wood become a child star, most notably in the classic "Miracle on 34th Street." "At seven she had woken up to find herself famous," Lambert writes, "but at fifteen she woke up to compute the price of fame." Unlike many child stars, Wood had the talent, beauty and work ethic to make the transition to adult roles. Success in Hollywood created new insecurities, though, and Lambert never shies away from examining Wood's drug use, drinking, suicidal tendencies and numerous affairs with stars including Warren Beatty and Frank Sinatra. Even with all the lovers in her life, Wagner was her true soul mate, Lambert writes. The two were married twice, in 1957 and '72, and they were a couple when she died. That death was tabloid fodder at the time and has remained a macabre fascination for film fans ever since. The author does an excellent job of examining Wood's death. At the time, the actress was "at least emotionally unfaithful" with actor Christopher Walken. In November 1981, she and her husband went cruising on their boat with Walken, and during the trip there was a lot of drinking and a lot of tension. By sticking to the known facts of the case, Lambert dismisses the theories that either Wagner watched Wood drown after she fell off the boat, or that Walken and Wagner conspired to kill her. He concludes that in all likelihood, Wood accidentally slipped and fell off the boat and drowned. Lambert could easily have focused more on the accident and played it up to generate buzz for his book. Instead, he celebrates Wood's life. It's the mark of a true friend, and the work of a good biographer. John D. Thomas, the editor of Playboy.com, has a master's degree in film studies from Emory University.

LANA WOOD:

I was born Svetlana  Gurdin to White Russian Immigrant parents. 
My Mother and Father met and married in San Francisco where my mom moved with my half-sister Olga who was born in China.  Soon, they had my sister Natalie (born Natasha) and then settled in Santa Monica, California where I was born on March 1, 1946.  So, I was the baby!  It didn't seem to curry and special favor with Mom and Dad, though.  When you grow up with an older famous sister, the youngest isn't always the one who gets the most attention!  Besides that, I was an exceedingly quiet child who was mostly concerned with my reading.

My father Nicholas Zacharenko changed his name to Gurdin before I was born, so if you see it in print otherwise, you know I started out as Lana Gurdin. My mom, Maria was born in Tomsk and raised in Harbin, China and my father was born in Vladovostok and raised in Vancouver, Canada. Both of their families left Russia when the communists took over.My Mother and Father met and married in San Francisco where my mom moved with my half-sister Olga who was born in China.  Soon, they had my sister Natalie (born Natasha) and then settled in Santa Monica, California where I was born on March 1, 1946.  So, I was the baby!  It didn't seem to curry and special favor with Mom and Dad, though.  When you grow up with an older famous sister, the youngest isn't always the one who gets the most attention!  Besides that, I was an exceedingly quiet child who was mostly concerned with my reading.

My great-grandparents are from Riga and named Gordin. I do not know if
they are any relations to the ones you are showing in this pictures.
We have very little pictures left. My great-grandfather was
Zalman Gordin. He was married to Feiga and they had 3 daughters, Manya
(my grandmother), Esther and Ola. My father was named after him, he is
also called Zalman Gordin (but he goes by Sami).
Great-grandfater was one of several brothers (I don't know how many).
He died in 1939. Great-grandmother and the 3 girls left Riga before
the war. Manya and my father arrived in Israel in 1936/37. Her sisters
and mother arrived in 1939/40, after my grandfather's death. The rest
of his brothers were killed in the camps (we believe). We do not know
which branch of the family (if any) survived.
If any of this fits with the information you have of the Gordin from
Riga, I would be interested in hearing from you.
Thanks,
Hadass Gordin
