The occasion was a celebration of
Alter Esselin's eighty fifth birthday and took place
in the Home for the Jewish Elderly in downtown Milwaukee.
As was customary in those celebrations there were
recitations of his poetry in both Yiddish and English.
At his right is Howard Weinshel,a devoted friend
of Esselin. He read one his favorites of my father's
work, the self mocking poem, "Do You Really
Need Him?" And the brearded fellow at Alter's
left is Joe Esselin. Alter had been living in the
Home for several years. He died a few weeks after
the picture was taken.
