They are directly linked to Europe's finest Gypsy musicians. From the villages of Hungary, this music was brought to America to make our hearts sing. It is part of world roots music.

Ford Madox Ford - novelist, poet, critic, champion of young authors, travel writer, chronicler of his own times - was a man "mad about writing." As Ezra Pound observed, Ford "actually lived the heroic artistic life that Yeats talked about." An incorrigible bohemian who passed as "a nice old gentleman at a tea party," Ford devoted himself to literature and the arts, founding two important literary magazines, The English Review and the transatlantic review, and writing over eighty books, including The Good Soldier and Parade's End. In 1917, when he was serving in the British army, Ford met the Australian painter Stella Bowen, then studying with Walter Sickert at the Westminster School of Art. They lived together from 1919 to 1928, at first in an old laborer's cottage in Sussex, where they rebuilt their lives in the aftermath of the Great War. For Stella, orphaned at an early age, their home together was "a place in the sun and against the rain too." For Ford, who at first felt that he could no longer write, this was the beginning of a new life, one in which the strength and sanity of his companion did much to encourage the completion of one of the most important novels of the twentieth century. In fact, much of the raw material for Parade's End is found in these letters. We see the honesty, stoicism, and sanity of Stella Bowen in Ford's heroine Valentine Wannop. Stella's own story is of particular interest to readers today. After their break-up, she was a single parent, struggling to support herself and her daughter Julie by painting portraits in England and by acting as Ford's literary agent in London. Ford's poverty during the thirties, in spite of his continuous production of books and articles, made him and Bowen equals in the struggle for survival. The letters provide a portrait of Ford not found in his memoirs and biographies: "I write to you as I never took the trouble to write to any other soul," he tells Stella, "how I really feel under a placid exterior." His attitudes toward religion, education, morality, marriage, and art - the true subjects of his fiction - are here expressed clearly and unequivocally.

Romany culture is perhaps the most Indo-European of all. The ancestors of the Gypsies left India around 1000 years ago and mixed with every culture on the way to produce a variety of Romany dialects and well-known cultural achievements from Hungarian Gypsy music to the English Gypsy caravan. Such images somehow co-exist, however, with continuous persecution.

TRANSLATION FROM ROMANIAN INTO ENGLISH NEW YORK MAGAZINE No. 706, Wednesday, February 2, 2011, Cultural Page 16 University Professor and Doctor Aurel Sasu, HOMAGE TO THE JEWS FROM THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA, Commentary regarding the volume SALUTE TO THE ROMANIAN JEWS IN AMERICA AND CANADA, 1850-2010: HISTORY, ACHIEVEMENTS, AND BIOGRAPHIES by Vladimir F. Wertsman The publication of SALUTE TO THE ROMANIAN JEWS IN AMERICA AND CANADA,1850-2010: HISTORY, ACHIEVEMENTS, AND BIOGRAPHIES, XLibris , Bloomington, IN, 2010, 287 pp. by Vladimir F. Wertsman, one of the most valued, respected and dedicated researchers on multiculturalism over the Ocean, was no surprise to anybody in light of the authors previous triptych: THE ROMANIANS IN AMERICA, 1748-1974: A CHNRONOLOGY AND FACT BOOK(1975), THE ROMANIANS IN AMERICA AND CANADA: A GUIDE TO INFORMTION SOURCES, (1980), and THE ROMANIANS IN THE UNITED STATES ANADA CANADA: A GUIDE TO ANCESTRY AND HERITAGE RESEARCH (2003). All of these titles reflect the authors older concerns regarding immigration, integration, and identity preserved via the values of organic tradition. Those who know this passionate book lover (he served many years as senior librarian at the New York Public Library) also know how much he is proud of his Romanian education (he is a graduate of the University "A.I. Cuza" Law School, 1953) and the prestige of Romanian people of culture abroad in whose spirit he was formed. Established in the USA in 1967, the future author did not forget the depth of his primary sources and his Romanian heritage. Regardless how often he appears in the Romanian community, he is admired for his work, advice, and wisdom. His main message is friendship, mutual understanding and respect. The above mentioned volume on Romanian Jews in America and Canada starts with a "microchronology" of Romanias two millennia Jewish community going back to the year 70 AD, when some Jews found asylum in Dacia after the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple. Under King Decebal, Jews are permitted to reside without any restriction. They were merchants, translators, and purveyors, Matei Basarab offers asylum to Hungarian Jews who refused to convert to Catholicism, under Alexander the Good and Stephen the Great, the Jews are free to live in any part of Moldavia. Also, Stephen the Great and his son Bogdan Voda kept Isaac Benjamin Shor as their logofat (chancellor). In the 16th century, first Sephardic communities are mentioned in Bucharest and Craiova, also Jewish stable communities are mentioned in Iasi (with a synagogue and cemetery), Suceava, Botosani, Sibiu, Cluj. Vasile Lupu (17th century) accepts several Jewish doctors and pharmacists at his court, Constantin Brancoveanu will do the same one century later. In 1665, a document mentions that along with Valachians and Serbs there were Jews in Michael the Braves Army. Constantin Mavrocordat accords fiscal immunity to Jews settled in Herta, Balti, Orhei, Ocna, and Harlau. From DESCRIPTIO MOLDAVIAE (1717) by Dimitrie Cantemir, we find that Jews could build wooden synagogues without any restrictions. Starting with the 18th century, mixed musical bands (lautari) are formed; they consisted of Romanians, Jews, and Gypsies. After the hardships endured by Jews during the Russian-Turkish War (1769-1774), Alexandru Mavrocordat and Nicolae Mavrogheni accord special protection to the Jewish population. In 1803, there were about 3,000 Jewish families in Moldova, fifty years later, the Jewish population increased to more than 130,000. In the Proclamation of Islaz (1848), the rights of the Jewish community are explicitly mentioned: "the emancipation of the Israelites and political rights for all compatriots of other creeds". In 1852, the first Jewish school is opened in Bucharest, and in 1847 appears ISRAELITUL ROMAN, the first newspaper of the Jewish communities from Moldavia and Walachia
