CHILDREN OF IZIEU: Jewish children pose for a souvenir
mapshot in 19US at the children's home in Izieu, east of Lyon. The
ndup of these children is one of the main charges against Nazi

war criminal Klaus Barbie now standing trial in Lyon. Of the UU
children and seven adults arrested and deported in 19JW, only one
person survived.
Barbie Trial
Won't Solve Mystery of Who Squealed on Kids
LYON (JTA) A 43-year-
old mystery was raised at the
trial of Klaus Barbie last week
as witnesses testified about
the arrest and deportation to
death camps of 44 Jewish
children sheltered at a former
summer camp in the village of
Izieu, near Lyon, in April
The youngest was five, the
oldest 17. All perished, as did
the six adults arrested with
them. Barbie, the wartime
Gestapo chief in the Lyon
district, is accused of having
ordered the arrests and, accor-
ding to one witness, was at the
railroad station to watch the
children herded into boxcars
for Auschwitz.
But none of the witnesses
could answer the question
which has puzzled French
authorities for more than four
decades: Who denounced the
children to the Gestapo?
BARBIE WAS not in the
prisoner's dock last Wednes-
day (May 27). After being
brought to court under protest
the day before to be formally
identified by six witnesses, he
was returned to St. Joseph
Prison, where he intends to re-
main for the duration of the
trial. French law allows defen-
dants to be absent from court.
Barbie claimed that right on

Pollard Case
Will End
The State Department has ex-
pressed the hope that the
reports issued at the conclu-
sion of two official Israeli in-
vestigations into the case of
Jonathan Pollard will prevent
any further spying by Israel on
the United States.
"We hope that these reports
will contribute to the ensuring
that espionage activities like
Pollard never occur again,"
Phyllis Oakley, a State Depart-
ment spokesperson, said.
Oakley said the U.S. had "no
specific comments to offer" on
the reports issued by a
Knesset intelligence subcom-
mittee, headed by Labor MK
Abba Eban, and a
government-appointed com-
mittee, made up of Zvi Tsur, a
former Chief of Staff, and
Yehoshua Rotenstreich, a pro-
minent Tel Aviv lawyer. She
noted that the U.S. had not
seen the official findings, only
the reports in the press.

sions of these reports lies with

Shin Bet Slam
Will It Encourage New
Rounds of Terror?
Supreme Court's condemna-
tion of methods used by the
Shin Bet to obtain confessions
has resulted in widespread
reproach for the top secret
security agency which some of
its operatives fear will only en-
courage terrorists.
The court offered its
criticism in a ruling which
overturned the 1981 convic-
tion of former Israel Defense
Force officer Izat Nafsu, who
was serving an 18-year prison
sentence for espionage and
treason. NafsU was found guil-
ty by a military tribunal on
evidence provided by the Shin
Bet, also known as GSS
(General Security" Services).

posed United States Holocaust Memorial
Museum, which the Federal Commission of
Fine Arts rejected last Friday, saying that the

make it disarming either,"
said Freed.
"(The museum) was not a
design easily reached. It was
tested 14 or 15 times and the
Hall kept getting smaller until
it was three quarters of its
original size," he said.
But although the members
of the Commission of Fine
Arts praised the minimalist
style of the building, they
agreed with chairman Jay
Carter Brown, who said "a
standard urban design
shouldn't protrude into the
parking space."
Goodman of New York City,
who left before a final vote was
taken, suggested that the
plans be approved, noting that
"because of the unusual nature
of it (the museum), it can be set
back a little and given further
exposure than conventional."
The rejection by the Com-
mission is the latest of a series
of conflicts in construction of
the museum which came to a
head last December with the
resignation of Nobel laureate
Elie Wiesel as chairman of the
U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Another bone of contention
was voiced at Friday's
meeting by Werner
Hasanberg, an economist and
Holocaust survivor, who is ob-
jecting to the naming of dif-
ferent sections of the museum
after contributors.
But members of the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Council
are expecting that Freed's
plan, which was approved by
the Council on April 28 and
still needs to be cleared by the
Capital Planning Commission
meeting next month, will even-
tually be approved by the Com-
mission of Fine Arts.
"I DON'T consider it (the
Commission's rejection) a set-
back," said Museum Director
Arthur Rosenblatt. "It was the
first appearance of the plans
and no one knew what would
be said."
Rosenblatt said "extraor-
dinary progress" has been
made in construction of the
museum and he still hopes to
break ground by fall. At that
rate, the museum could be
finished by 1992.
Fine Arts Body
Rejects Holocaust Museum Design
Members of the Federal Com-
mission of Fine Arts rejected
Friday designs for the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Museum,
saying that the museum's
hexagonal-shaped memorial,
the Hall of Remembrance, pro-
trudes too far into the street.
But the architect, James
Freed of I.M. Pei, New York,
said he is concerned that
changing the plans will make
the memorial look like an ad-
junct to the adjacent govern-
ment buildings.
"The memorial will be
treated like an office building
which does honor neither to
the office building nor the
museum," said Freed, who
told reporters after the
meeting that he was "very
disappointed" by the Commis-
iion's reaction. "I'd rather not
lo it at all than make it look
like the office buildings," he
FREED SAID there might
have been a "misconception"
among members of the Com-
mission that could be resolved
before the matter is voted on
again June 19.
Freed's design calls for an
atrium-like Hall of Witnesses
to function as the focal point of
the five-story, block-long
museum, which will have three
flights of permanent exhibi-
tions, a learning center, ar-
chives, library and an interna-
tional computerized data
retrieval center. The building
would encompass 250,000
square feet.
The Holocaust museum,
which will cost an estimated
$45 million to $50 million to
build, will be located on Raoul
Wallenberg Plaza here and
stand between the Auditor's
Building and the Bureau of
Printing and Engraving. Also
planned are a large plaza with
a grove of trees, water and
reflecting pond.
Freed, a German refugee
who was appointed architect
for the museum in November
1986, said he was completely
stuck on how to proceed with
the project until he visited the
Nazi concentration camps.
"IT WAS AN extraordinary
challenge to make a building
that would fit into Washington
and explain the unusual nature
of its contents," said Freed. "I
realized that a Holocaust
museum is like other buildings
in that it is didactic and it
teaches, but it is very different
from other buildings in that it
deals with horrible and un-
thinkable things."
The most striking and con-
troversial part of the building
design is the Hall of Remem-
brance, connected to the
museum, which would feature
a skylit ceiling. It would be
simply done with a wall for
candles and seats.
"The Hall of Remembrance
is the only neutral, con-
templative part of the
building. You can't make it a
pleasant place, but you can't
Metzenbaum, Dole Urge Shultz
To Review F-15 Sale to Saudis
WASHINGTON (JTA) Sen. Howard Metzenbaum
(D., Ohio) and Senate Minority leader Robert Dole (R.,
Kan.) are urging Secretary of State George Shultz to recon-
sider his desire to sell F-15 jets to Saudi Arabia.
IN THE LETTER to Shultz, the Senators say, "we
have no desire to see a divisive and rancorous fight on the
floor and we want you to understand how broad and deep is
the concern in the Senate."
The Reagan Administration announced last week that
it is postponing the sale of the 60 F-15s to Saudi Arabia un-
til later this summer.

6, 1944, at 9 a.m., the children
at Izieu were sitting down to
breakfast when a truck with
six German soldiers arrived,
followed by a civilian car with
three Gestapo agents.
Pleadings were of no avail.
Forty-five children one of
them a non-Jew, was released
shortly afterwards were put
aboard the truck along with
the six adults who staffed the
shelter. They were taken to
prison in Lyon where, after a
brief stay, they were sent to
Auschwitz. Two of the children
were shot there, and 42 died in
the gas chambers.
ONE OF Wednesday's
witnesses, Leon Reifmann, is
the sole survivor of Izieu. He
was 17 in 1944. He alone saw
the truckload of soldiers drive
up to the shelter and managed
to climb from a window and
hide in underbrush until the
convoy drove away.
The person or persons who
tipped off the Gestapo remain
unknown. France Culture, a
state-owned radio station,
reported last week that it was
the Mayor of Izieu who wrote
to Gestapo headquarters de-
nouncing "the Jewish
character" of the shelter.
The father of the non-Jewish
boy released after the raid is
also suspected. He was ex-
ecuted by the French
underground immediately
after the war for collaboration
with the Nazis.
Another possible suspect is
Lucien Bourdon, a farm
worker at the time, who disap-
peared from Izieu several days
after the arrests. He served
during the final months of the
war as a guard in the Saar-
bruck concentration camp in
Germany, where he was ar-
rested by American forces.
Bourdon, still alive, has been
summoned to take the stand at
the Barbie trial. In the search
for the real culprit, some
observers may recall Pierre
Laval, the Prime Minister in
the Vichy government, who
was executed for treason after
the war. Laval is known to
have complained that the
Vichy police were lax in sear-
ching French orphanages for
children of "Jewish blood."

Primary Charge
Against Barbie
A somewhat bleared amateur snapshot
appears in our A section this week. It is a
fihoto of the Jewish children in a special
zieu home 45 of them, and one non-Jew,
who was released shortly afterward. Taken
to prison in Lyon, the 44 others were sent to
Auschwitz after a brief stay.
Two of the children were shot in
Auschwitz, and the 42 remaining died in the
gas chambers. There was one survivor, a
Leonard Reifmann, who appeared to testify
last week at the Klaus Barbie trial in Lyon.
More than any other, the raid on the Izieu
home is a primary charge against Barbie
that he is guilty of crimes against humanity.
But Barbie, except for his brief return to
court last Tuesday (May 26), refuses to be
present anymore at his trial.
Rights of the Tortured
This is, as we have already suggested in
these columns, one of those facts of life in
the French justice system, where persons
charged with crimes have the right to re-
main in jail rather than to be confronted by
their victims.
It is also a fact of life in the radical ter-
rorist background of Barbie's attorney, Jac-
ques Verges, who undoubtedly mastermind-
ed Barbie's decision to stay away.
But one problem with this is that Barbie's
victims the pathetic few who are still liv-
ing, as well as the dead do not have the
satisfaction that would come from confron-
ting the beast in his chains.
We cannot fault the French system and its
view of the rights of the accused. But we can
only hope that, in the end, this system also
bears in mind the rights of those tortured
and killed at the hands of Klaus Barbie.
Get Going on Memorial
It was a shocker to learn that the United
States Holocaust Memorial Council's design
for a National Holocaust Memorial Museum
has been rejected by members of the
Federal Commission of Fine Arts in
At issue is the hexagonal memorial, the
Hall of Remembrance, which is connected to
a five-story museum structure featuring a
sky-lit, atrium-like Hall of Witness.
According to members of the Federal
Commission who voted thumbs down, the
Hall of Remembrance sticks too far out into
the street.
We hope that the appropriate design
changes are made and accepted quickly so
that the project can move forward. We also
hope that the Holocaust Memorial Museum
suffers no further agony such as the kind
currently being suffered on Miami Beach
where, apparently, a Holocaust Memorial in
our own community has become a political
State Dep't. Treacle
The State Department's reaction to the
Jonathan Pollard report, which blames
Israel's entire Cabinet for the unfortunate
spy occurrence, is pure treacle. The Depart-
ment hopes that the report of the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Security Committee
will stop further spying by Israel on the
United States.
The reason it is treacle has nothing to do
with any attempt here to excuse the es-
pionage fiasco in the first place. Rather, it
shows utter insensitivity to the fact that the
United States has itself done a heap of spy-
ing on Israel and, further, that spying is a
fact of life in the international community
even among friends.
More to the point is that the United States
is privy to a lot of information about Middle
East matters that would substantially help
Israel, its supposed ally, in warding off the
mischief that Israel's Arab neighbors there
never give up trying to foment.
But this information is rarely passed on to
Israel, since the United States wants
everyone to understand that it also main-
tains, or attempts to maintain, friendly rela-
tions with these nations, as well.
Getting More Than We Give
As columnist George Will has already sug-
gested, this sad fact must be balanced
against the loads of critical intelligence in-
formation, not to mention war materiel
technological information, that Israel has
garnered in its various wars against the
Arabs and promptly passed on to the United
States a casual matter of Israeli life that
has given our country critical insights into
Soviet weapons design.
What the U.S. apparently wants is to
have all espionage activity its own way and
to get uptight when it doesn't. In the end,
Will has observed, "we get more than we
give" so far as Israel is concerned. And so
for the United States to bleat about Israeli
espionage is really treacle, pure and simple.
What's A Solicitation?
Reagan And North Need A Lesson
There's a thing about lunch
in a restaurant on a rainy day.
For some reason, the noise
level drops a few decibels.
Maybe it's that folks like to
take their time when it rains
and at the same time are not
quite so strident. I don't know.
I do know that this day as I
entered the emporium of corn
beef and conversation, it had
that feel to it. And outside it
was pouring.
There, at the usual table, sat
the usual group. Old is a
relative term. There were in-
deed plenty of total years
represented around that table.
There was the usual pecking
order based on the position of
the leader, Shmuel Ben
Zalman. But the energy level
in the group, even on a sub-
dued, rainy day, belied any age
BEN ZALMAN waved to
me as I entered. I made my
way through the tables, runn-
ing the usual gauntlet of two
head waiters and aggressive
bus boys. "Gentlemen, a good
rainy day to you. What is the
special, and what is the
"Solicitation." Ben Zalman
pronounced it like the title to a
poem he was about to recite.
"We are today discussing
what is a solicitation and what
isn't. You got an opinion?" He
raised an eyebrow in a feat of
separate muscular control that
would have done Marcel
Marceau proud.
"Well," I jockeyed the huge
menu, "solicitations. I don't
like to make them, but I do. I
don't like to be solicited but I
am. A necessary fact of Jewish
"NAH," Ben Zalman
dismissed my opening state-
ment with a wave of an old
veined hand. "This solicitation
we are discussing, is not a
Jewish one. Oy! Could we give
those guys some lessons!"
"Lessons?" I queried. "To
whom lessons?" The soup ar-
rived. Always better on a rainy
day, even the outside
temperature is eighty-two.
"Lessons," replied Ben
Zalman, "to Reagan and
North. When Jews make
solicitations, not everybody
knows it but you wouldn't
forget, would you?"
"But Shmuel, the President
says he didn't make a solicita-
tion." "Maybe he didn't. But I
know how it would work if it
was the Temple or UJA." Ben
Zalman pushed back from the
table and got both hands and
arms into the act.
"King Fahd, that momzer,
comes into the office right?
Ronald asks Bob McFarlane to
leave, right? Then he turns to
Fahd. 'So,' he says, 'you've
been giving a million a month
to the contras, King. Very
generous gift.' 'And not easy!'
says the King. 'Not with oil
prices down. Business stinks,
Mr. President.'
"WELL,4 says the Presi-
dent, 'things are tough here
too. I can't get money from
Congress, but the need goes
on. You know King, how it is.'
'You're looking for an in-
crease?' The King raises his
Shmuel was smiling now,
almost chuckling. "So, Reagan
says: 'Look, I'm not going to
tell you what to do. Let your
conscience be your guide. I'm
going to leave this card on the
desk. I'll go have a little talk
with the boys at defense. You
know, where you get your
missiles? Then I'll come back.
"So, he comes back in a few
minutes and says: I wouldn't
even look at your pledge. I'm
sure you did the right thing.
Thanks for the increase and
have a good day.' "
I STOPPED my spoon in
mid slurp. "Shmuel, that's not
a solicitation?"
Both eyebrows this time.
"By us yes. By him, maybe
not. Oo, and take Ollie North.
So he goes to a parlor meeting,
and he makes a speech. Just a
speech, right? And then like all
our guest speakers he sits
down, no pitch. And the chair-
man stands up and says: 'We
all heard what Ollie had to say.
Now, I'm not going to call
cards. But we know why we're
here.' So, the designated
shlemiel gets up and says: 'I
believe in you, Ollie and here's
my check!" Legal? That I don't
know. But we know it works,
We all stood up to leave. It
was still raining. "And you
really believe that's the way it
was done?"
Shmuel put a hat almost as
old as he on his head and
squinted at the Florida rain,

It's Better Than Qoodi
A History of Kosher Quality
Of all the beautiful values that have passed
from generation to generation since Bibli-
cal times, none better reflects the wisdom
of Jewish heritage than the Jewish Dietary-
Laws. Today, strict observers ot the ko-
sher laws and non-observers of all religious
affiliations have come to equate the word
"Kosher" with "Superior Quality."
Empire Kosher Poultry takes great
pride in our reputation as "The Most
Trusted Name in Kosher Poultry" for al-
most 50 years. We have always been dedi-
cated to satisfying the toughest customers
in the world ... the or-
thodox Jewish con-
sumers who demand
both the highest stand-
ards of Kashruth and
the finest quality. Our
poultry is different. It
must be wholesome,
plump, juicy, and tender.
It must also be guaran-
teed strictly kosher, with-
out compromise, without excuses.
Because of the kosher laws. Empire
cannot take the same shortcuts that many
other poultry processors can. We produce
our own feed, and breed, hatch, and raise
our birds following the most rigid require-
ments. Our poultry is raised slowly and
humanely, with no artificial ingredients or
growth stimulants. Only completely
healthy birds can be processed. The ko-
sher laws also demand that much of our
processing be done by hand, supervised by
highly trained Rabbis as well as the U.S.
Department of Agriculture.
Empire Kosher poultry costs a little
more because of the extra care that is
taken with each bird. We are continually
improving and innovating our processing
equipment, however, to keep prices as low
as possible. It is our goal to use the most
modem techniques possible while main-
taining the ancient kosher laws. All Empire
Poultryelm kens, turkeys, and duck-
lingsproudly hear the symbol of the
Union of Orthodox Jewish
Congregations of America as
pr ment, and koshering proc-
esses adhere strictly to
the Jewish Dietary Laws.
With Empire Kosher
Poultry, You Don't
Have to Worry
To assure you, our valued, customer, that
our poultry is unquestionably kosher,
every bird bearing the EMPIRE label is
grown and processed under continuous
Rabbinical supervision.
All poultry is hand held at the
moment of slaughter to assure the
most perfect and humane cut that
qualifies a bird as "kosher" accord-
ing to Jewish law.
No hot or heated water is used
at any stage of processing. Ever. Only
cold water is acceptable by the Rabbis
supervising our Kashruth.
Every bird is inspected for whole-
someness by U.S. Government inspec-
tors. However, where most companies
accept this inspection as good enough, we
at Empire do not. Many of the birds that
pass government inspection do not pass
subsequent inspections by our own
Rabbinical supervisors. We guar-
antee that all poultry bearing
the Empire Kosher label
meets the highest standards
of the Jewish Dietary Laws,
nothing less!
Precisely located inci-
sions are made in each wing
and neck so that the blood
will be fully drained during
soaking and salting. Each bird
is submerged and soaked
completely in fresh, con-
stantly flowing, cold water
for at least one half hour to
loosen all blood parti-
cles. The bird is then
hung on a line to drip
free of all water and
hand-salted internally
and externally and stacked
correctly to drain for one
hour. During this time, the salt
loosens and absorbs all remain-
ing blood.
After salting, each bird is
rinsed in three separate vats of cold run-
ning water to remove all salt and thor-
oughly cleanse the bird.
All poultry is quickly chilled below
4()E and packed to retain its freshness and
quality during the rapid shipment to the
market. Poultry destined to be dressed
and sold frozen or cooked for delicatessen
items is immediately taken to our further
processing rooms. Cutting, cooking, fur-
ther processing, and packaging are also
supervised by Rabbis to guarantee that
every Empire product adheres to the Jew-
ish laws.
You Can Taste the Difference
Because of our deep religious convictions,
we can enjoy only strictly kosher products.
So for ourselves, and for those individuals
who need kosher products because of reli-
gious convictions, we strive to produce
the best poultry on the market today.
Our chickens, turkeys, and duck-
lings bring compliments to dining
room and holiday tables when-
ever they are served.
The same care that ensures
the strictest kosher standards,
also produces one of the most
succulent and delicious products
available. Consumers of all reli-
gions are discovering the differ-
ence between Empire Kosher
Poultry and products that are proc-
essed without the benefit of proper
Rabbinical supervision.
The Laws of Kashruth Consumer Protection for Over 5,000 Years
The Jewish Dietary Laws of humaneness and cleanliness have survived since ancient times. Now, over
5,(HK) years later, modern scientists are proving the validity of the Kashruth. Cold water has been found to
retard the growth of harmful bacteria (unidentified until the twentieth century). The ancient methods of
preparing meat have been shown to greatly reduce the risk of food poisoning and contamination. Empire
Kosher Poultry takes great pride in the reassurance that the same laws that protected consumers for
thousands of years continue to provide a superior product today.

In an interview published in
Yediot Achronot last Wednes-

ing: "Nafsu is speaking the
truth about how we treated
him in the investigation .
The investigation was con-
ducted quickly, like any in-
vestigation dealing with ter-
rorism We lied out of
necessity. However, there was
no falsification of testimony,
but neither was this an in-

Pashosh stated further, ac-
cording to Yediot Achronot,
that the terrorists now know

Herman Herat Honored By Florida
Federation of Stamp Clubs
Herman Herst, Jr., interna-
tionally recognized Boca
Raton philatelist, was recently
guest of honor at a party at the
Colonnades in Palm Beach,
sponsored by the Florida
Federation of Stamp Clubs.
Some 50 couples attended
from all parts of the country,
some as far away as California
and Texas.
The event celebrated two
thirds of a century of service
to philately as a stamp dealer.
Several presentations were
made, including the dedication
of two large aluminum exhibit
frames, for use at Interna-
tional Philatelic Exhibition,
each with a plaque in honor of
Mr. Herst. Other awards in-
cluded a crystal polar bear for
the Herst collection of
porcelain polar bears, the gift
of the stamp collectors of
Puerto Rico.
Guests at the party included
Mrs. Herst, and Mrs. Herst's
daughter, Mrs. Gail Busch, of
New York.

33,000 Dieters Slim Down On
Rotation Diet Sponsored By Publix
Publix Super Markets have been responsible for a lot of
personal losses occurring during the past five weeks in
Southeast Florida.
Since April 23, more than 33,000 people have joined in
Publix's Rotation Diet promotion, a nine-week community
weight-loss program.
During the first four weeks of the promotion, Publix
Director of Public Affairs and Public Relations Clayton
Hollis estimates that 33,000 people in eight counties
(Monroe, Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie,
Okeechobee and Indian River) received free Rotation Diet
materials. The diet promotion is now in its fifth week, and
Hollis says information is still being distributed at a fast
pace from Publix in-store Rotation Diet Centers.
"We are extremely pleased with the response and par-
ticipation by Publix shoppers," Hollis said. "Publix spon-
sored the diet as a community service and our shoppers
have proven their interest in a healthy diet."
Emily Hines, a representative at Rotation Diet Head-
quarters in Nashville, estimates that 412,500 pounds have
been lost to date by Rotation dieters in Southeast Florida,
based on 33,000 participants dieting for one three-week
rotation period.
"Follow-Up research and spot checks of male and female
dieters on the Rotation Diet revealed that an average of
12V2 pounds per individual is lost in the first three weeks,"
Hines said. "National research also showed that for every
piece of Rotation Diet material distributed, three copies
were made and passed out to family members and friends."
. This is especially good news to the American Cancer
Society as Publix is donating two cents per pound lost and

Three Divine laws were now
given in which the priest
played an important role:
A person who confessed to
having wrongfully retained his
neighbor's property had to
make restitution by adding
one-fifth to the original value
and bringing a guilt-offering to
G-d in atonement for his sin. If
the rightful owner had died,
leaving no heirs, the repay-
ment was to be made to the
A husband who suspected
his wife of infidelity could take
her before the Priest, bringing
an offering of barley meal. The
Priest took holy water from
the laver and mixed it with
dust from the floor of the sanc-
tuary. She had to confirm on
oath, administered by the
priest, that if she be guilty she
would suffer harmful effects
after drinking the 'waters of
bitterness.' The wording of the
oath was written on a scroll
and washed off in the water.
The woman then drank it and
if she was guilty, consequent
physical deformities bore
witness to her unfaithfulness
and she was accursed among
her people. If she was inno-
cent, no injuries resulted and
she was promised the blessing
of motherhood.
Those who voluntarily took a
vow to become completely con-
secrated to the service of G-d
for any length of time, were
obliged to abstain from wine
and strong drink, not to cut
their hair, and not to defile
themselves through contact
with a dead body, even that of
a near relative. If they did ac-
cidentally defile themselves,
they had to shave their heads,
bring atoning sacrifices which
were offered up by the priest,
and recommence the period of
the vow. When this had ex-
pired they were required to br-
ing certain sacrifices, their
heads were shaven and the

Aaron was entrusted with
the duty of arranging the
seven lamps of the Menorah so
that the light projected for-
wards. Before formally enter-
ing upon their duties the
Levites underwent a ceremony
of purification by cleansing
themselves and their
garments, and were presented
by Moses to the whole com-
munity. Within the Tabernacle
itself various symbolic acts
were carried out which
signified the dedication of the
Levites to their sacred service.
Additional regulations provid-
ed a probationary period for
the younger Levites from the
age of 25 (they became fully
qualified at 30). Those over 50
were permitted to assist their
younger brethren in non-
essential duties.
The first Passover in the
wilderness was observed on
the 14th day of the first
month. Supplementary legisla-
tion instructed those who were
ever prevented from par-
ticipating in the paschal
sacrifice at the proper time,
either because of uncleanness
or absence from home whilst
on a journey, to celebrate the
festival on the 14th day of the
second month (Iyar).
Whenever the cloud arose
from the Tabernacle, it was
the signal for the camp to con-
tinue its journey. Moses was
commanded to have two silver
trumpets made, the sounding
of which also gave the signal to
march, and they were used, in
addition, to summon the whole
congregation to the Sanctuary
(the princes only, if one
trumpet was sounded); to
sound the alarm before battle
and to proclaim joyous occa-
sions such as Festivals and the
New Moons.
After a stay at Sinai of
almost a year, the lifting of the
cloud gave the signal for the
Israelites' departure. Hobab
(Jethro) was urged by Moses,
his son-in-law, to act as a guide
on the journey, but he refused
as he preferred to return to his
native land, Midian.
Discouraged by their past
experiences and the probable
dangers in store for them, the
people began to complain bit-
terly. G-d's anger was aroused
and He caused a fire to break
out among them causing ter-
ror and destruction. It only
abated in response to Moses'
prayer and the place was thus
called Taberah (burning).

led by the 'mixed' multitude

knows? That's now we would
do it and call it what you will.
Except they don't use guilt for
a tool. I don't think. Right,
Boyckick?" He laughed, clap-
ped me on the back and headed
out to the elements.
Israelites had tired of the man-
na which had become their
staple diet. Moses felt that the
responsibility was too much
for him and in despair en-
treated G-d's help. In reply he
was told to assemble 70 elders
at the Sanctuary who would
assist in sharing his burden
and upon whom G-d would
bestow part of the Divine
spirit resting on Moses. As far
as the people's complaint was
concerned, food would be pro-
vided in such abundance that
they would come to loathe it.
The elders, whom Moses
selected, stood near the Sanc-
tuary and seized on that occa-
sion only with the feeling of
spiritual ecstasy, began to pro-
phesy. Two of them, Eldad and
Medad, had not responded to
Moses' summons and remain-
ed in the camp. They, too, felt
the urge to prophesy even
though they had not come out
to the Sanctuary. Moses was
informed and Joshua, jealous
for his master's authority, ask-
ed him to restrain Eldad and
Medad, but he showed true
greatness in replying 'Would
that all the L-rd s people were
prophets,' worthy of receiving
the Divine spirit.
The wind brought an
abudance of quails from across
the sea, but the people
displayed such gluttony that
they fell upon the food and
G-d, in anger, smote them with
a severe plague. The place
where this occurred was called

At Hazeroth, the next
halting place, Miriam and
Aaron spoke slightingly of
Moses because he had married
a Cushite woman, and claimed
equal authority since they too
had received Divine inspira-
tion. Moses, a man of great
humility, remained silent, but
G-d descended in a pillar of
cloud and called Aaron and
Miriam to the Tabernacle
where He rebuked them for
their presumption. Though
Divine revelations were
sometimes made to other pro-
phets through visions or
dreams, Moses' position was
unique since he was the only
person to whom G-d directly
revealed His will. When the
cloud departed, Miriam was in-
fected with leprosy and Aaron,
after confessing his error,
pleaded with Moses for their
sister's recovery. Miriam,
although healed at the in-
tercession of Moses, was
isolated for seven days outside
the Camp (the minimum period
for the isolation of the leper)
before being re-admitted to
the community.
After this the camp moved
to the wilderness of Paran.
14-IV, 7
Zechariah bids the people re-
joice for G-d will dwell once
again in the Jerusalem Tem-
ple. In a vision the prophet
sees Joshua, the High Priest,
clothed in soiled garments
(symbolizing the people's ini-
quities) and accused by Satan
of being unworthy to occupy
his office. Joshua is vindicated
by G-d, ordered to be clothed
in priestly garments and is ad-
monished to observe and teach
His commandments.
In a further vision he is
shown a seven-branched
golden Menorah (compare the
opening verses of the Sidra)
representing G-d's vigilance.
Above the candlestick is a bowl
(containing the oil supplying
the lams) fed by two olive trees
on either side (representing
Joshua, the High Priest, and
Zerubbabel, the governor of
Judah). The meaning is that
under G-d's care and guidance,
Zerubbabel will complete
thebuilding of the Temple in
spite of all opposition, 'Not by
might, nor by power, but by
My spirit, saith the L-rd.'
