uired a small metal plate to be
planted in his head. For
dical reasons and with the
fctor's permission, he wore a
jeball-type cap for several
feks. This not only served as
head protection but also fulfilled
the Orthodox requirement of
keeping one's head covered at all
times.
Since the cap seemed to be
more socially acceptable than the
skull cap had been the previous
year, Kleg continued to wear the
cap after the medical permission
had lapsed. And therein ensued
the controversy.
Kleg's principal informed him
that his wearing that particular
type of cap would no longer be
acceptable. Kleg continued to
wear the cap rather than return
to the skull cap which had led to
so many problems for him last
year. That defiance of the
principal led to his being sus-
pended from school and the issue
brought before the Hillsborough

Financier Flatto-Sharon
Sentenced in Absentia
IAR1S (JTA) Jewish
Incier Samuel Flatto-Sharon,
^ember of the Israeli Knesset,
sentenced in absentia by a
Us court to a five-year prison
and a 30,000 franc (about
fine for illicit financial
rations. About 25 accomplices
kived suspended sentences.
Hie court stated that most of
a, including Sharon, would be
\le to several million francs in
es and fiscal fines owed to the
nch state. The trial of Sharon,
^rred to in court by his original
Samuel Sigevits, began
May.
According to the
rges, he made illegal profits
tiling some S250 million by
^ting fictitious companies
ch bought and resold land
Dng themselves and pocketed
advantageous loans which were
not repaid. Sharon fled to Israel,
taking with him the money he
allegedly swindled, long before
his fraud was uncovered.
In Jerusalem Sharon said his
attorney in Paris would file an
appeal against the right of the
French courts to try him. But he
said he would go to France
himself if a new trial is ordered
and if arrangements can be made
with the French authorities.
The latter have sought
Sharon's extradition from Israel
in the past and are expected to
renew their request. A Justice
Ministry spokesman said that if
this is done, the Ministry would
review the matter again. Sharon
was stripped of his Knesset
immunity last July so that he can
stand trial in Israel for alleged
election campaign fraud.
General Assembly President
Denounces Israel's Bombings
UNITED NATIONS (JTA)
salim Ahmed Salim of Tanzania,
the president of the 34th General
Assembly, began this session's
proceedings by denouncing
Israel's "senseless bombings of
civilian targets" in south
Lebanon and declared that the
Palestinians have a right to self-
determination and an in-
dependent state.
The 37-year-old Ambassador
also referred to the Palestine
Liberation Organization as "the
representative" of the
Palestinian people. "The core of
the Middle East problem is the
continued denial of the
inalienable rights of the
Palestinian people to self-
determination, including the
right to establish an independent
state," he said.

THE "necessary conditions"
for peace in the Mideast are "the
realization of that right, the
refusal to give legitimacy to the
fruits of conquest, the respect of
the right of all states in the area
to an independent existence,"
Salim said.
His statement following his
election by acclamation, focused
attention ot the world body's
preoccupation with the Mideast
and was a foretaste of the attacks
which Israel will find itself under
during the scheduled 13-week
session.
Salim, who is also the Tan-
zanian Ambassador to Cuba and
who attended the recent con-
ference of non-aligned nations in
Havana, praised what he termed
the fresh and dynamic impetus
generated by that gathering.

Int faction in the Knesset Finance Committee. Bennet is

HE MET with Finance Minister Simcha Ehrlich
f>t. 17, who outlined Israel's economic needs. Ehrlich
.d Bennet that the peace agreement with Egypt
radoxically made it necessary for Israel to increase its
tense spending.
1 But Bennet maintained that Israel had chosen a
fault time to make her increased request. Inflation and
[wing unemployment in the U.S. made it difficult to
pe the aid, he said.
I Ehrlich admitted that the government's economic
fey had partially failed. But on the other hand, he said,

The Sabbath between Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur is
known as Shabbath Shuvah, the
Sabbath of Repentance. The
name is derived from the Haf-
torah which begins with the
words Shuvah Shuvah Yisrael,
"Return O Israel, to the Lord
your God." Thus we devote the
Sabbath before Yom Kippur to
the main theme of the Ten Days
of Penitence deep regret for
past wrong-doings, and a
profound determination to
correct our ways in the future.
On Erev Yom Kippur (the day
preceding Yom Kippur), it is our
solemn duty to seek forgiveness
from people whom we have
harmed or offended during the
past year. According to a
teaching of the Talmud, "the Day
of Atonement forgives not only
for the sins between man and
God, but for sins between man
and man. Yom Kippur forgives
only if man has made peace with
his fellow."
THE SPIRIT of the Day of
Atonement finds its supreme
expression in the synagogue,
where young and old are
assembled to join in Divine
worship, to ask. God through
fasting, prayer, and charity, for-
giveness for our sins.
A few minutes before sundown.
Yom Kippur is ushered in witn
the chanting of the Kol Nidrei
prayer. Before the prayer is
begun, the learned and pious
people of the synagogue take out
the Scrolls of the Law from the
Holy Ark.
To the chant of the verse:
"Light is sown for the
righteous.
And rejoicing for the
upright of heart"
the men carrying the Sifrei Torah
(Scrolls of the Law) follow in
procession around the
synagogue. Everyone shows his
reverence and love for the Torah
by kissing the sacred Scrolls as
they are carried bv. After the
procession the Kol Nidrei prayer
is chanted three times to a most
beautiful melody.
According to many historians,

President Fidel Castro of Cuba,
the new leader of the non-aligned
nations, is due to address the
General Assembly.
AT A PRESS conference here,
Salim reiterated that the PLO, as
the representative of the
Palestinian people, must be
brought into the negotiating
process if there is to be a lasting
peace. He told a reporter that he
was prepared to ask the PLO to
accept Israel's existence. "But I
must also be equally prepared to
ask the Israelis to accept" the
PLO, he added.
Absent from the proceedings
was U.S. Ambassador Andrew
Young who resigned last month
following the furor aroused by his
meeting with the PLO observer
at the UN, Zehadi Labib Terzi.
Technically, Young remains the
U.S. envoy until his successor,
Donald McHenry, presents his
credentials. Young is currently
visiting Africa as the head of a
U.S. trade mission.
Meanwhile, according to
reports reaching here. President
Julius Nyerere of Tanzania said
his country was not going to
resume diplomatic negotiations
with Israel, severed after the
Yom Kippur War. Addressing a
press conference with Young in
Dar Es Salaam, Nyerere
reportedly said that Tanzania
recognized the existence of Israel,
but that is not now the issue in
the Middle East.
"THE REAL problem is
whether the Palestinians are
going to have a home of their own
and whether the international
community is going to regard
this as a serious matter," Nyerere
was quoted as saying.
He asked, "Are the
Palestinians going to remain
homeless forever? Are we going
to continue talking solely about
the security of Israel forever? Is
that the issue in the Middle
East?"

Solowitz Wants to Bring His 'Angel from Ism
is a beautiful lad, ;.__
By JUDITH ROSENKRANZ
Jack Solowitz found an angel
in Israel.
Now many people find the
answer to many prayers in Israel.
Jack Solowitz found himself
praying as he had never done
before. And in the process found
"his angel." Now he is trying to
bring his angel" to Tampa. "His
angel" and her husband, that is.
Solowitz made his first trip to
Israel in November 1978. As for
so many of us. it was long
awaited and much anticipated.
So long awaited that before the
trip was a reality, his wife passed
away. He decided to make the
trip he and his wife had always
dreamed about.
He joined a tour and found
that Israel was indeed all that he
had hoped it would be. Returning
to Tampa, he immediately began
planning his second trip to Israel,
the one where he could just go on
his own and spend time the way
he wanted. March of this year
found Solowitz once again in
Israel and loving every minute of
it.
THIS particular day, he was
walking along the water's edge
with his friend Aaron Berger,
another Tampan in Israel tem-
porarily.
"I heard nothing. I saw
nothing." says Solowitz. "I was
one of thousands on the Tel Aviv
beach that day and a driverless.

over and was on top of me.

with small cars. Such was
Solowitz' luck, that this was a
Pontiac Bonneville! It had been
parked, without the brakes on. on
a hill near the beach. It started
moving silently toward the sea.
Jack Solouitz at the Western Wall during his first trip to
Israel.
"People rushed over and lifted
that car off of me. They saved my
life." As Solowitz continues,
there are noticeable tears in his
eyes. He was taken to the Ichilov
Hospital in Jaffa Tel Aviv, where
the surveyed damage included
two leg fractures, a broken collar
bone. internal injuries and
damage to an eye so severe, it
almost was lost completely.

What sins? What transgres-
sions, violations? The enumer-
ations in our prayer books are
only suggestions. Each person
knows himself where he has
missed the mark and has fallen
short. No one can be so smug or
so presumptuous as to say that
he is wholly righteous and has
not succumbed to sin. Who has
not failed to be all that he wanted
to be during the past year? Who
has not gone astray and faltered?
Who has not let talents lie
dormant and capacities remain
unused? Who has not reproached
himself for failing to do all that
he might have done for others, for
his family, for his children, for his
synagogue, for the Jewish Fed-
eration and for the State of
Israel? Can anyone look back at
the past year without regret and
not say to himself, "This I should
have done. I really could have
done better."
Yom Kippur asks us to be
mature and intelligent enough to
see ourselves as we really are.

The Young Affair
Here, in America, the Outgoing Year for the
Jewish community was inextricably entwined with
the fate of Israel's future. The growing cancer of
petrodiplomacy has shifted our own nation's balance
of interest toward Arab pressures with respect to
Israel. And, indeed, on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, it
seemed clear that the United States has embarked
upon an equally inextricable course of recognizing
the Palestinian cause, whether or not the PLO alters
its chartered policy of extermination for Israel.
The resignation of Andrew Young as U.S.
Ambassador to the United Nations was triggered by
this new American petropolicy, which thus far is
schizophrenic in its course. On the one hand, Pales-
tinian recognition is in the offing; on the other,
Young was forced to resign because he covertly held
meetings with PLO representatives toward this end.
Or perhaps not so covertly.
Another offshoot of the Young affair was a well-
coordinated public relations campaign announcing
the Black American community's determination that
there must be a rift between itself and the American
Jewish community on the pretext that Young's
resignation was as a consequence of President
Carter's knuckling under to "Zionist influences."
Strange "Solutions'
It is hard to see the outgoing year in America
apart from the impact of Israel on us all. Only peace
between Israel and Egypt offered the quiet hope
that, in the end, Israel will be spared the agony of
further world alienation and further American
chastisement.
But, as American Jews, Rosh Hashanah fore-
shadows continuing struggle against the ominously
anti-Semitic notion in our midst that Israel is at the
root of all our troubles at home, and that the way to
solve them is to wash Israel right out of the nation's
hair.
This is a "solution" deemed fitting by an in-
creasing number of Americans who link U.S. energy
policy with a growing view of Israel as expendable
and of American Jews as allegedly irresponsible if
they remain steadfast in their Israeli loyalties.
It is a growing "solution" offered by those who
tout the Arab cause by linking the Arab cause to
Palestine Liberation Organization terrorism without
bothering to justify the fact that no one has asked
either Israel's Arabs or any other Arabs whether in
fact they regard the PLO as their political
representative.
The eternal prayer on Rosh Hashanah, who shall
live who shall die?, means perhaps more in 5740
for Jewry than it has in a long time.
THE OTHER day, I read a
headline that trumpeted the
appointment to some post or
other of one Black and one His-
panic. The names of the ap-
pointees seemed less important
to the headline-writer than their
racial and ethnic identities. Even
the jobs to which they were ap-
pointed took second billing.
I am reminded of the time
when the querulous civil liber-
tarians fought with the press
over descriptions of people
charged with crimes in stories
about hold-ups. rapes and other
assorted reports of violence and
mayhem.
Why, the civil libertarians
wanted to know, was it important
to let the reader know that the
"alleged" law-breaker was, say, a
Black or a Hispanic? How did
this kind of information really
add to the completeness of
journalistic detail?
WASN'T IT in fact a form of
prejudgmenlal statement on the
guilt or innocence of the hapless
person being charged? Weren't
iwe actually saying that, of
course, it was a Black or a His-
lpanic who else would commit
i such a terrible crime in the first
place?
' Now we are in a new era when
I to identify an appointee
. ethnically and / or racially is to
I do just the opposite: We are not
seeking to influence social judg-
ements negatively by calling upon
; stereotypes of their behavioral
norms.
On the contrary, we are
proving our own freedom from
prejudiced feelings by acknow-
ledging our awareness of the
various ethnic and/or racial
components of the American
social and cultural spectrum, and
,by making appointments
predicated upon proportional
representation of these com-
ponanta.
IN FACT, the new era in which
Mindlin
we find ourselves requires a new
kind of mathematics in which the
proof that we don't have a single
bigoted bone in our body politic
lies in this dictum: overcompen-
sation is the ultimate egal-
itarianism.
To tell the truth, it is those
querulous civil libertarians
(again! who forced the dictum
upon us, but now that it is here,
there can be no denying its value.
How does it work? Well, to make
up for the time when we were so
crude as to call a suspect Black or
Hispanic. thus offering
gratuitous information that could
Ik- construed as defamatory, now
we are required to make appoint-
ments on racial and/or ethnic
bases far out of proportion to the
mathematical representation of
these racial and or ethnic bases
in the social-cultural spectrum.
To offer our mea culpas for
calling people, say, Black or His-
panic in the past, we must call
them that today in increasing
frequency and numbers. We must
advertise them in headlines
their names, the purpose of their
appointments, or even their
qualifications, which no fair-
minded person would care to
consider at all, absolutely beside
the point.
OF COURSE, I recognize one
bit of illogic here, and that is a
study of past and present
methods of identification J

Victor Bienstock
U.S. Policy Ignores Our Own History
I wish Cpl. Herb Nicksey. late
ol the Connecticut National
Guard, were around today to
remind Secretary of Slate Vance
and bis self-righteous cohorts in
Foggy Bottom of an episode in
American history in this century
which they might study for the
precedent it establishes. Cpl.
Nicksey was the oldest son of our
r.iM door neighbors, and I still
remember him in the campaign
hat and baggy uniform of the
doughboy, limping around on
sick leave from the Punitive
Expedition which President
Woodrow Wilson sent into
Mexico in 1916 to destroy the
bandit forces that were attacking
American lives and property.
Secretary of State Vance, a
shrewd, skilled lawyer and
master of the diplomatic
statement, might be able to find
some real difference between an
American President sending
American troops into the
territory of a neighboring
country to prevent a loss of
American lives and property and
an Israeli Prime Minister sending
Israeli troops into the territory of
a neighboring country to prevent
the loss of Israeli lives and
property.
I DONT THINK he would
find more than a hairline of
difference. And if a great moral
leader like President Wilson, with
his visions of an international
order and his Fourteen Points,
could find the use of force not
only justified, but required, then
it smacks of hypocrisy for his
successors to condemn another
nation for following the
Wilsonian example under almost
identical circumstances.
The Punitive Expedition
receives scant mention in history
textbooks today. The name of
I'.nu Im Villa, which once spelled
turroi to residents of the border
/.one. is only a vague memory to
most Americans. Hut in 1915-16,
Puucho Villa's forays across the
border, pillaging and looting,
rustling cattle and horses from
isolated Texas ranches, was news
all over America, almost over-
shadowing American interest
in the Great War raging in
Europe in which the United
Slates would soon be involved.
Mexico, in 1915, was in
complete political disarray as
Lebanon is today. A long -
standing regime had been top-
pled, a general detested in
Washington had seized power,
his rule was being challenged by
a loose coalition of generate, and
conditions in the country verged
on the anarchic.
AMERICANS lived and
worked in Mexico in danger of
their lives; there were numerous
cases of Americans being at-
tacked and killed. Mexican
bandits swooped across the long
frontier with impunity because
American forces were under
orders not to cross over into
Mexican territory, even in hot
pursuit, and the bandits knew
there was no Mexican govern-
ment able to subdue them.
President Wilson, recognizing
that there was no strong central
government in Mexico, appealed
directly to the Mexican people to
reestablish order, promising
America's moral support to any
elements seeking the reestablish-
ment of constitional government.
I lis appeal was coupled with the
warning that if they failed in this,
lite United States "will be
constrained to decide what means
should be employed by the
United States in order to help
Mexico save herself and!

Denies Jewish Support of Blacks

(ATLANTA (JTA) Mrs.
tretta Scott King, widow of the
civil rights leader, Dr.

atement on the status of Black-
kwish relations in America,
Icerpts of which follow:
I "Because Blacks and Jews
are a common heritage as two
I the most oppressed minorities

able coalition for social
ogress in America must include
Ith of these groups if it is to be
Iccessful.
"I cannot agree with those who

erest of minorities to join

equality, were Jews .
tere can be no doubt that this
imitment was based on
ndamental human decency and
|l simple self-interest.
In recent years,
iny observers have
tification with the cause of the
Palestinian Arabs. Others saw a
fundamental conflict of interest
emerge in the Bakke case and the
question of affirmative action in
general .
"Finally, the recent furor over
Andrew Young's resignation
from his post at the United
Nations is seen by many as cause
for a serious split between Blacks
and Jews. The responsible Black
leadership has always stood fast
for the right of Israelis to a
homeland and peace with
security and will continue to do
can never condone a policy of
non-communication with political
opponents. There can be no hope
of peace without a willingness to
talk.
"I know that I am not alone in
this belief. It was recently
reported that a number of
prominent American Jews like
Philip Klutznick, Nahum Gold-
mann, George Gruen and Her-
man Edelsberg met with PLO
representatives as early as 1976.
"For many years I have

elections, held onj
Sept. 19, were
the finale of a
campaign pro-1
cess based on the
recent city elec-
tions.
Each student was given $200
"Hillel money" to either begin
his own campaign or to con-
tribute to the candidate of his
choice. Candidates used the
money to purchase poster board

for advertising or to buy "TV

during lunch services. Can-
didates qualified by paying $100
(remember, that's "Hillel
money") or by filing a petition
with the signatures of 20
students. Each candidate also
had a campaign manager and
treasurer who filed weekly cam-
paign reports.
Elected to serve with Mark are
vice president, Jeremy Nelson;
secretary, Lee J. Tawil; chief

MOTT*
The argument going around some Jewish
homes is: "Mott's is delicious"-or-"Mott's
are delicious." But there is never any
argument about DELICIOUS. Because
they are. Mott's captures all the
natural and sparkling taste
of the sun-ripened fruit. And
many Jewish housewives know
it. And that's why they serve
Mott's to the family.
Whether it's one of the
apple sauce varieties or
the prune products, you
just know it's the finest
because Mott's uses only
the finest quality apples
and sun-ripened prunes.
So whether it should
be Mott's 'IS', or
Mott's'ARE'...
Mott's "are/is"

From Generation
\ To Generation
1979 ELAINE FANTLE SHIMBERG
The publication of Alex Haley's expansive novel, Roots, a ::
few years ago, caused many people to scurry to their libraries *:
and to genealogists to investigate their own lineage. I found :|::
mine, not in some dusty archive, but in a Yom Kippur service ::
the year I was 16. ::
Until then, I had dutifully attended Holy Day services with *:
my parents. There was never any question of my going. It was j:j:
just assumed I would. Parents assumed many things about their :':
children then and children seldom questioned. :
Usually though, about in August, I would ask, "When are 3
the holidays this year?" Whatever the answer, I would moan. S
Invariably, one of them fell on a school day, which immediately ::
destroyed any chance I might have had to win the "perfect K
attendance" pin. ::
OCCASIONALLY, the holidays fell on the first day of ?:
school. That was the worst. It meant I would miss seeing who ::;
was back, who was new to the school, getting my new textbooks ::
and having first choice in the locker room. It never occurred to ::
me to fuss or complain above a mere mumble. I knew that my :':
parents would be in temple and that they expected my brother ::
and me to be there, too. |:j
Yom Kippur of my sixteenth year approached. My new hat ::
sat in its box on top of my dresser. My new wool dress hung in S
the closet. Despite the fact that it was always hot in early fall, ::
everyone wore dark wool dresses. I even had located my white ::
gloves wadded up in the "dress-up" clothes box in the playroom. j:j:
The morning of Yom Kippur Eve, my parents came to me. :
My grandmother was gravely ill. They had to go to her. I would ::
be in charge of getting myself and my brother, who was bVt ::
years younger, to services. And they left.
I remember watching them go. "They'll never know ::;
whether we go or not," I thought. Then I reconsidered. My S
brother would tell if we didn't.
THE DAY passed quickly and we began to get dressed for :
services. He brought me his tie. I looked at it. I had never tied a ::
lie before. I wrapped it around his neck and began twisting it in jx
poor imitation of the way I had seen my father do it. My brother a
gave a strangled cry. It looked more like a garrote than a ::
necktie. Quickly I untied my knots.
"Hold still and let me try again." I dropped my gloves on ':'.
the floor and studied the tie, trying to hypnotize it into tying S
itself. I encircled my brother's neck. He looked at me in ap- ::
prehension. I began to feel warm in my new wool dress. I twisted g
the lie around and around. Again I was met by failure.
"Maybe we should just forget the whole thing," my brother >j
said hesitantly, rubbing his neck.
"What? The tie?" I exclaimed.
"No. Services." ::
I thought about it. No, I was responsible for getting us both ::
there. I would not fail because of a little piece of cloth.
FINALLY, I shoved him around with his back towards me. ::
I wrapped the tie around his neck once more. I twisted, pulled, s
palled and behold ... a miracle! His tie was tied as pro-
fessionally as if an expert had one it. I nodded my approval.
"Come on," I said. "We're late."
We weren't, but the service was about to start. We sat in ::
ihe back of the temple and opened our prayer books. The service ::
8 ltugan. For the first time in my memory, I did more than sit and :$
:]: wait for it to be over. I heard the words. They were rich in fi
:j: meaning, comforting like a warm and familiar quilt. I looked ::
:: over at my brother and he smiled back. We were continuing a *:
:j: tradition, being as we had been with our parents beside us. We $:
: would continue to be and, I hoped, our children in the far-off -ij
|:j: future would continue after us.
My grandmother died that Yom Kippur. And I mourned :
x her. But I also mark that day as the day I coninued where she ::
i had left off, the day I discovered my roots.

Controversy over Settlements
Reflected at WZO Meeting
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
controversy over the value and
wisdom of Israel's settlement
policy on the West Bank was
reflected at the weekly meeting of
the World Zionist Organization
Executive here where
demands were made for the
resignation of Raanan Weitz, co-
chairman of the WZO's set-
Weitz, who was not present,
was attacked by Rafael
Kotlowitz, head of the
Immigration and Absorption
Department and by Settlement
Department co-chairman
Matityahu Drobless for saying
publicly that the government
should give priority to set-
tlements within the borders of
Israel proper rather than in the
middle of populated areas.
KOTLOWITZ demanded that
Weitz either stop urging the
government to halt settlements
on the West Bank or quit.
Drobless accused Weitz of
"mixing personal political views
with so-called professional
arguments." Eli Tavin, head of
the diasDora culture and
education department, charged
that Weitz was trying to make
the WZO Executive the
"spearhead to bring down the
(Likud) government.
Weitz told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the
attacks on him were "inap-
propriate response to the serious
problems which I raised." In his
speech before the Agriculture
Center, Weitz warned that of the
150 settlements established since
1967, about 70 faced severe
economic problems.
"I REPRESENT the Labor
Party in the Zionist Executive
and the views I expressed are
precisely the views of the Labor
Party," Weitz told the JTA. "I
did not speak on a controversial
issue such as the establishment
of a Palestinian state but on the
fact that Jewish settlements on
the West Bank, in the heart of
dense Arab population, cause
political damage and have no
other value."
Weitz, whose views clash
sharply with those of the
government, observed: "We
cannot do everything
simultaneously and therefore we
must set a list of priorities. If we
continue with the settlement
drive on the West Bank we shall
not accomplish the iraporual
tasks we have in the Golan mil
the Jordan Valley. I say this on11
professional basis regardless i\
my political views.
Meanwhile, the Knesset I
Security and Foreign Attain
Committee rejected an appeal bj
Deputy Prime Minister Yigari |
Yadin against two new *
tlementa in Samaria, Rehan and
Dotan. The vote to reject ns
appeal and to approve the *
tlements was easily arrived t
partly because of the support by
key Labor Alignment KoesM|
members.
The action was the secondd|
final defeat for Yadin and
victory for Agriculture Mini**
Ariel Sharon who supported th
settlements. Yadin lost the fint |

Kippur*
Today
Continued from Page 1
this melody has come down to us
from the Marannos, Spanish
Jews who had been forced to
become Christians, but who in
secret observed the Jewish
religion. On Yom Kippur they
would risk their lives by
assembling in caves in order to
hold Services.
THE THEME of the Kol
Nidrei prayer is the seeking of
forgiveness for promises we have
made, and were unable to fulfill.
On Yom Kippur morning after
the reading of the Torah we
observe Hazkorath Neshamoth,
the Memorial Service for the
dead. Although the Memorial
Service is recited on the last day
of each of the three joyous
festivals, on Yom Kippur the
Memorial Service carries a deeper
significance. The synagogue is
filled to capacity as the Rabbi or
Cantor proclaims the words of
Yukor Elokim "May the Lord
remember."
During the Memorial Service,
we donate charity for sacred
causes in memory of our departed
ones.
During the Musaf (Additional)
Service, which lasts through the
greater part of the afternoon, we
recite the Avodah, an account of
how the Divine Service used to be
performed on Yom Kippur by the
High Priest in the ancient
Temple in Jerusalem. Parts of
this service are sung to melodies
which, according to many his-
torians, date back far into our
history.
A MOST moving moment is
the time dedicated to the story of
the Ten Martyrs, who were killed
by the Romans for studying the
Torah. Through this prayer we
recall the martyrs of all ages who
have given their lives so that
Judaism may live.
The great climax of Yom
Kippur is the Neilah Service. The
name Neilah, meaning "closing,"
refers to "the closing of the Gates
of Heaven." It is a symbolic
term, signifying that soon the
future of every individual for the
coming year will be sealed, and
the Gates of Heaven will be
closed. This does not mean that
God cannot be found during the
year.
"God is near to all who call
upon Him" at all times and in all
places. However, during the Ten
Days of Penitence, it is we who
have been nearer to Him. The
Neilah Service reminds us that
soon the solemn season of Yomim
Noraim will be over, and that we
should do everything possible to
purify our hearts and souls before
the holiest day of the year comes
to a close.
During the Neilah Service, we
implore God to "seal" us in the
Book of Life. Since Rosh
Hashanah we asked to be "in-
scribed" in the Book of Life, now,
in the final hour of the Day of
Judgment, we pray to be
"sealed" in the Book of Life and
Happiness.
THE Neilah Service is begun
when the sun is on the top of the
trees. As the physical light of the
day gradually fades, a great
spiritual light is kindled in the
heart and soul of every wor-
shipper as a result of this sacred
day.
Soon the great moment
arrives, the moment of the Con-
fession of Faith, when we recite
the eternal Shema YisroeL In this
moment the worshippers become
a part of Eternal Israel, as they
solemnly proclaim their belief in
the Unity of God the battlecry
of Israel throughout the ages.
Soon the voice of the Sbofar is
heard. A single, long, plain sound
is blown. Yom Kippur is at end.
To the joyful words of Next
Year in Jerusalem, the Yom
Kippur Services are brought to a
conclusion.

Iran's Ancient Jewish Community Under Surveillance
By BARBIE ZELIZER
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The 4,500-member Jewish
community in Damascus is
dominated by an 80-year-old
Jewish supporter of the Syrian
regime who is regarded with
distrust by the Jewish
population, two American Jewish
students recently told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency.
The two, Terry Magady, 23,
and Dan Weiner, 22, both of
California, spent five days last
month in the Syrian capital as
part of a personal "fact-finding"
tour of the region, including
Egypt, Jordan and Israel. They
were put in touch with the JTA
by an official of the Jewish
Agency student department.
"EVERY OFFICIAL tran-
saction, including applications to
go abroad, must go through a
man called Mr. Totah," they
explained. "He acts as a liaison
between the government and the
Jewish community. Unfor-
tunately, he acts largely out of
self-regard and sells information
to Syrian officials about the
comings and goings of the
community."
The figurehead leader, as
Magady and Weiner described
him, is regarded by the Jewish
community, who call him "a 50-
50 Jew," with a mixture of
distrust and fear. "Talk to Mr.
Totah first," they were told.
"Totah will make a phone call
and everything will be OK."
Totah is also reportedly in
regular contact with the
American Embassy in
Damascus.
"We avoided Totah for as long
as we could, because we knew
that meeting with him might
prevent us from reaching the
community at large," they said.
Totah, however, "caught up"
with them on the fourth day of
their visit, greeting them by
name at one of the local
synagogues. The next day, which
was by coincidence their last, two
"well-dressed" men visited them
at the youth hostel at which they
were staying, telling them "to be
sure they were on their scheduled
flight to Amman the next
morning." They were.
TOTAH PRESENTED the
two students with what they
termed a "white-washed"
overview of Jewish life in Syria,
denying any problems and
minimizing the political op-
pression to which Syrian Jews
are subjected. They received a
different picture, however, from

"We found an extremely af-
fluent community, with sur-
prisingly strong Jewish values
and a strong Jewish identity,
spiritually led by the well-liked
and voung Rabbi Albert
Hamra'h," Magady said. "But
this community is denied even
minimal political freedoms and is
subjected to an ever presented
feeling of tension that things
could get worse at any point.'
Specifically. those concerns
center on a political take-over by
Islamic radicals or another war
with Israel. Most important, all
want out of Syria.
Magady and Weiner reported
that community members
branded the controversial
screening of a CBS-TV GO
Minutes program on Syrian
Jewry a few years ago as a "total
farce." They pointed to the
presence of Syrian officials who
accompanied the television crew
abroad, provided they leave their
family and a $7,000 deposit
behind. In addition, some 400
women lack partners for
marriage; emigration is a for-
bidden topic of discussion; and a
plain clothes policeman regularly
at all times as ample evidence of
the one-sided picture of con-
tentment and freedom which
resulted.
"WE WOULD give up
uverything we have here, all our
possessions and money, if we
could just get out." community
members told the two students.
with many expressing a desire to
immigrate to Israel. "All we want
is to be with our family and to
keep our Jewish identity
.ins where but here." Time and
again, the two students heard
expressions of bewilderment over
the fact that many Iranian Jews
chose to remain in Iran after the
Shah was deposed. For them, the
implications of the ascent of an
Islamic republic are all too clear.
Weiner anil Magady related.
For this reason, as well as one
of safety, the Jewish community
m Damascus is a cohesive one.
clinging to remnants of .Jewish
tradition as a means of retaining
their heritage. All shops close on
the Sal)l)alh. some of the com-
munity observes kashrut. and
attendance is high at two Jewish
day schools and three
synagogues.
SIX MEN are studying for
their rabbinical ordination and
religious artifacts are freely
brought in from abroad. Daily life
for many of the community
members, most of whom are
brass and copper merchants, is a
good one, and Weiner added that
the impressive Jewish com-
munity center is reminiscent of a
local Jewish community center
back in the U.S.
Tensions between the Jewish
community and Moslems have
largely died down since the 1973
Yom Kippur War. But Magady
and Weiner reported that it is an
enforced, and perhaps illusory
picture of harmony.
Entire families are arbitrarily
punished for the act of one in-
dividual and only family heads
are allowed to go on periodic trips
patrols the shops in the Jewish
quarter.
COMMUNITY MEMBERS,
the two students said, praise the
pressure exerted- on the Syrian
government by American of-
ficials and world Jewry, con-
lending that it is largely
responsible for the fact that acts
of violence committed against
them are now at a minimum. But
all fear that this respite is
temporary and that time works
against them.
They look to Israel with great and free us," Magady andta
pride, listening regularly to Israel said one person told then!

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
Vayelekh
IVA Y ELEKH Moses said to the Children of Israel:
I am 120 years old this day. I can no longer move about;
I and the Lord has told me, 'You shall not cross over this Jordan.'
I Be strong and of good courage, fear not; for the Lord your God
goes with you. He will not fail you, nor forsake you."
Then Moses called Joshua, and said to him before all Israel:
Be strong and of good courage, for you shall go forth with His
I people into the land which the Lord promised their forefathers;
and you shall cause them to inherit it. The Lord will lead you. He
will be with you. Do not fear, nor be dismayed."
And Moses wrote the Law the Torah and gave it to
the priests, the sons of Levi who carried the Holy Ark, and to all
I the elders of Israel.
Then Moses commanded them: "At the end of every seven
Iyears, during Sukkot, you shall read aloud the Torah before all
(Israel."
When Moses finished writing the Torah, he ordered the
|l,i'\ ius to place it beside the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord,
land to assemble all the elders and the officers, that he might
bpcak to them. Deuteronomy 31:130

U.S. Policy Ignores Our Own History
To Mideast Summit
Vance Declares
WASHINGTON (JTA) Secretary of State
rrus Vance upheld Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe
ayan's recent meetings with two Palestinians as being
(thin Israeli-American understandings about such
it acts and characterized them as aiding the "autonomy
Igotiations" between Israel and Egypt for the West
link and the Gaza Strip.
REPLYING TO a reporter's question at a news
lference, Vance said, regarding Day an's meetings, that
It has always been clear that both Israel and the U.S.
luld have discussions with them. They are both helpful
|d useful for the autonomy negotiations."
Vance virtually ruled out an American-Egyptian-
baeli summit conference for this autumn in Washington,
King that there are "no plans" for it. He said that his
ksion late this month with Dayan and Egyptian Defense
mister Kamal Hassan Ali is the "only meeting thus far"
It is planned. That session, Vance said, will deal with
i monitoring in Sinai related to Israel's withdrawal
|m the area under the Camp David accords.

the Villa forces. His instructions
were:
"You will promptly organize
an adequate military force of
troops under the command of
Brig. Gen. (John J.) Pershing
and will direct him to proceed
promptly across the border in
pursuit of the Mexican band
which attacked the town of
Columbus and the troops there
on the morning of the ninth
instant. These troops will be
withdrawn to American territory
as soon as the de facto govern-
ment of Mexico is able to relieve
them of their work. In any event,
the work of these troops will be
finished as soon as Villa band or
bands are known to be broken
up.'
Secretary Baker noted in
public announcements that the
President had stressed the
operation would be carried out
"with scrupulous regard for the
sovereignty of Mexico."
ON MARCH 16, 1916, the
advance units of "Black Jack"
Purshing's forces crossed the
border, and the last elements of
the expedition did not return to
United States soil until
February, 1917, having remained
on Mexican soil for 11 months
and having penetrated the
country to a depth of 300 miles.
The American units left Mexico

only after it was clear that the
Villista forces had been ef-
fectively destroyed, and Carranza
had substantially consolidated
his control over the country.
When the Pershing expedition
entered Mexico, Carranza
protested loud and long against
this violation of his country's
sovereignty although there was
strong suspicion that, secretly,
he welcomed the American
undertaking to destroy the
Villista threat his own troops
were unable to contain.
The Americans expected
cooperation from Carranza's
troops but never received it.
meeting instead with all sorts of
obstacles including blocking of
supplies and even false in-
formation on the location of Villa
strongholds. At one stage.
Carranza generals passed down
orders that the American
columns were to be blocked if
they moved in any direction
' except northwards back towards
the border.
THERE ARE, naturally,
some differences between
the Villa scenario and the
current Lebanese situation
but not enough to render the
Wilsonian principle inapplicable.
Instead of a dissident Pancho
Villa, there are a Yasir Arafat
and the PLO engaged in the same
murderous activities against
Israel that Villa practiced against
the United States.
Instead of a Carranza
desperately trying to consolidate
his hold on the presidency and
the country, there is a Syrian -
controlled puppet regime which
has no authority and no control
over the country. Wilson's appeal
to the Mexicans was ignored;
Begins appeal to the Lebanese
was rebuffed.
As the United States respected
the border with Mexico, so
I rsruel respected the border with
Lebanon until it realized, as the
Americans finally did, that
guerrilla, terror attacks could
only be prevented by reaching in
and destroying the attackers in
their hideouts. Most Lebanese
would be as happy as the Israelis
if the attacking power of the
PLO. which brought down the
democratic government of
1 Ajbunon. were to be eliminated.
The United States had no
desire to compromise Mexican
sovereignly, and President
Wilson tried to get Gen.
Carranza's regime to assume
responsibility for order along the
international border, but
Carranza refused to negotiate
while American troops were on
Mexican soil.

The Times argued that a
comprehensive settlement is an
impossible dream because it
facilitates sabotage by enabling
the most radical Arab states to
exercise a destructive veto.
Moreover, it would reinstate
Moscow, which will never co-
operate since, as The Times
pointed out, it "can have Arab
dependents only so long as some
strife continues."
"Having brokered the mar-
riage between Egypt and Israel,
Jimmy Carter seemed unwilling
to let the newlyweds furnish their
own house," The Times said.

FEARS THAT the con-
troversy over Andrew Young's
resignation as America's UN
envoy would strengthen the PLO
and isolate Israel are un-
warranted, judging by editorials
and columns in newsoapers
across the country.
The consensus holds that
Young was responsible for his
own dismissal, that his followers
cannot justifiably blame Israel or
American Jews, and that court-
ship of the PLO would appease
terrorism and violate the com-
mitment to Israel.
On another front, many editors
deplore the "inflammatory"
Black-Jewish confrontation and
appeal for its swift resolution.
The Los Angeles Times (Aug.
26) wrote, "What was decisive
was that Young was not candid
with his superiors ... It became
impossible for him to continue in
his post."
The Detroit New (Aug. 17)
reviewed Young's record of be-
littling the United States and
insulting its allies and suggested
that Young might have become
"a towering figure in world af-
fairs" had he not possessed the
fatal flaw of ego-driven indis-
cretion."
ON THE same day, the New
Orleans Times-Picayune editor
ialized, "The triggering incident
waa of his own maWing and he
should have been fired long ago
for other sufficent reasons." Said
the New Orleans States Item:
"Young brought on his own
downfall. His lying to his own
State Department was in-
tolerable.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch
(Aug. 21) wrote that Young's
"behavior waa, for an ambas-
sador, completely intolerable .
a firing offense Whan it
comes to discrimination .. .
Jews, as a people, probably know
more about how it feels to be vic-
timized than any other group on
earth His action seemed to
signal a threat to Israeli
security."
The Press Herald of Portland,
Me. (Sept. 1) declared that the
"failure of American Black
leaders to condemn the virulent
terrorism" of the PLO would do
"irreparable damage to the civil
rights movement."
The Washington Star (Aug.
30) said, "When the exercise is
concerted selective, appears
spiteful ... in a spirit that
suggests ... a tactic of political
revenge, that is no service to the
Black community, to its basic
political interests, or indeed to
the cause espoused."
The Dayton Daily News (Aug.
17) wrote, "There is an obligation
to reassure Israel about any
change The United States
has left its one proven Middle
, East ally shaken and angry."
The Kansas City Star (Aug.
28) said, "Since the Andrew
Young fiasco ... a new crop of
pseudo and politically oppor-
tunistic 'experts' have decided
that both Israel and the U.S.
have had their heads in the sand
over the Palestinian question and
that since Andy Young is a nice
guy, then Yasir Arafat must be a
nice guy, too."
There are many, many more.
I.L.Kenen
Now, outgoing UN Ambas-
sador Young is urging Black
African nations to re-establish
diplomatic links with Israel and
become a moderating influence in
the Middle East. Several African
nations broke off ties with Israel
following the 1973 Yom Kippur
War thinking the Arab nations
would be helpful to them.
And Young, hearing of Rev.
Jesse Jackson's recent comments
about Israel, rejected criticism of
Israel for its trade with South
Africa meager in comparison
to that of African and other
nations saying: "Israel
becomes too easy a scapegoat for
other problems we have."

Cures Found In
Hebrew Writings
By RABBI T. BROD
DEDICATED TO "MY SON THE DOCTOR"
The Torah contains many laws of hygiene and recognizes
the use of both doctor and medicines. The Hebrew Priest
(Kohane) had no authority as a physician but rather was con-
sidered as a man charged with the laws pertaining to social
hygiene. He was the enforcer of all health laws.
There are 613 commandments in the Torah of these 213
are medical or hygienic (Tar-Yag Miu). Suppression of pros-
titution, venereal diseases, frequent washing, care of the skin,
strict sanitary regulations, rules concerning sexual life, isolation
and quarantine stopped the spread of diseases prevalent
amongst other nations.
The Torah teaches that contagious diseases are spread by
direct contact as well as by clothing, household utensils, etc.
Infected garments and utensils were scalded, washed or burned
entirely. The patient was isolated, inspected and washed even
after recovery. I Leviticus 13-14)
NO ONE was allowed in tribal camps if he came into
contact with a corpse or if he had a discharge from any part of
his body. After a period of isolation he had to bathe and wash his
belongings before he was permitted to return to his camp.
(Number 19: 7-16) Even the garments and weapons of a soldier
returning from war had to be thoroughly cleansed and dis-
infected to prevent the spread of disease picked up during
contact with the enemy (Numbers 31: 22-24)
The standard equipment of a soldier included a shovel, for
the Torah warned against the danger of infectious bowel
diseases spreading through excrement iDeut. 23: 13-14).
Biblical therapeutics consisted of washing, use of oils,
balsams, bandages, bathing in hot springs, 12 Kings-5.10)
especially in cases of skin diseases; sun rays, myrrh, sweet cin-
namon, cassia, galbanum, niter, mandrake (aphrodisiac).
THE TALMUD contains accounts of some rare surgical
operations. In a special prayer for the sick, we can note that the
physician was recognized as a healer. The patient petitions God
for divine help but also asks the Lord to inspire the attending
physician with wisdom that he may heal the sick. The role of the
doctor was that of helper or instrument of the Lord. "I am the
Lord that healeth thee" (Exodus 15:26). Midwives and phar-
macists are mentioned frequently in the Bible. No ancient
Hebrew medical books are in existence. The Talmud states that
King Hezekiah hid the "Medical Book" and that a book on
pharmacology was lost iBeruchot 10b also in Pesuchim 56a).
The purpose seems to have been to force the Hebrews to rely on
faith healing by God alone, to recognize the Supreme Being as
the chief power in effecting a cure.
King Hezekiah accepted the following:
1. The human body is the creation of the all-wise God.
2. Sickness is the violation of the laws of God.
3. Abuse of the body brings sickness and disease.
4. Worry, anxiety cause physical weakness. Good
cheer and optimism promote health and well-being.
5. Faith in a creator is the highest expression of op-
timism, therefore it fosters health and fights sickness.
6. The use of prayer and devotion will heal the sick.
Judaism uses a dual method of prayer and medicine. To the
"true Jew." religion, faith is an ever-present help in the time of
trouble or sickness. It fills him with the great passion for
Chayim, Life. The ills of flesh and the signs of the soul can be
cured by the divine power of prayer and good deeds iZdukah).
"A long life and a happy one," is our petition on our most
sacred holidays.
"May you be inscribed in the book of life." Shalom!

building by students." The intro-
duction also reads. "All policies
listed in this handbook are
subject to change because of
Hillsborough County School
Board or school administrative
action. Students will be notified
when such changes occur."
NO ONE has ever questioned
students who wished to wear the
traditional skull cap. But in this
instance, the student and his
parents claim that there is
nothing according to the Jewish
religion which requires the skull
cap to be worn, rather the
requirement is only that a head
covering be worn.
Is the board policy concerning
what type of head covering is
permissible the same as the board
telling the student how to
practice his religion'1
If an exception could be made
for medical reasons, can an
exception be made for religious
reasons?
If Joel Kleg can wear a
baseball style cap to school, can
anyone else wear the same thing
and what about the board's no
hat policy? Dr. Raymond
Shelton. Hillsborough County
School Superintendent, and
Joel's father. Milton Kleg. a
University of South Florida pro-
fessor of education, have not been
able to work out a compromise
solution as to what type of hat
would be acceptable, (1) to the
Kleg family so as not to cause
Joel harassment, and (2) to the
school board.
AND SO it continues: Kleg
refuses to return to school
wearing a skull cap. the school
board is accused of being in-
sensitive, some people wonder
what kind of reverence is a base-
ball cap and there are threats of a
lawsuit over freedom of religion.
The onry thing everyone agrees
is that the unfortunate part is
that a little boy is missing school.

Eitan Getting Sympathetic Ear
TEL AVIV Public sympathy appears to be
swinging in favor of Chief of Staff Gen. Raphael
Eitan who has come under fire in the Knesset for
reducing the sentence of an Israeli paratroop
officer convicted of murdering four Lebanese
civilians when Israel occupied south Lebanon last
year.
Eitan stated flatly in newspaper interviews
published here that he has no intention of
quitting despite demands by MK Uri Avneri of
the Shelli faction for his resignation.
A petition in support of Eitan was circulated
bearing hundreds of signatures of students and
paratroopers. Nevertheless. Avneri said that if
Eitan refuses to resign. Shelli would demand the
appointment of a judicial investigating com-
mittee to find out why Eitan reduced the sentence
of 24-year-old former Lt. Daniel Pinto from eight
to two years.
WASHINGTON President Carter.
Egyptian Vice President Hosni Mubarak and
Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan gathered
with other leaders of the three countries at the
White House late Monday ostensibly to mark the
first anniversary of the Camp David accords.
Political analysts, however, saw the session as
the start of a new round of tripartite talks but to
what purpose and towards what ends appeared
uncertain. U.S. diplomats were reported to be
anxious that the Israeli-Egyptian talks not go too
fast in fear that Saudi Arabia and other
"moderates" might be alarmed at the possibility
of a separate Egyptian-Israeli peace.
Joining the meeting at the White House were
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance. National
Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski. Israeli
Defense Minister Ezer Weizman and Egyptian
Defense Minister Kamal Hassan Ah.
Dayan opened talks Tuesday with Ali and
Vance on the establishment of joint Egyptian-
Israeli patrols to monitor the Sinai while Israel
withdraws from the Peninsula.
JERUSALEM The Cabinet has lifted a 12-
year ban on the purchase of private land in the
administered territories by Israeli citizens. The
Cabinet acted on a proposal by Prime Minister
Menachem Begin. A government spokesman said
afterwards that the ban is now outdated. "Israelis
have been permitted to buy land everyhwere but
Judaea. Samaria and Gaza since 1967 and we feel
this is now ludicrous and outdated." he said.
The Cabinet decision was unanimous, and a
ministerial committee will work out the details of
how sales are to be made, he added. The under-
lying assumption of the proposal is that in the
future, private citizens who may wish to purchase
land will be able to do so subject to government
guidelines. This would not, however, permit
unauthorized settlement projects camouflaged as
land purchases.
At the same time, the Cabinet rejected an
appeal by Deputy Prune Minister Yigael Yadin
against the establishment of two new settlements
- Rehan and Dotan in Samaria. Thus. Yadin
lost the first round of the present controversy
with Agriculture Minister Ariel Sharon over the
settlements.

COOPERMAN said that, after
he talked to Becker, he called the
Pinsky home and spoke to the
older daughter, Michelle. Mrs.
Pinsky was not available because
she has a job. After talking to
Michelle, Cooperman said, he
made a series of calls to various
county officials to initiate action
and to provide protection for the
Pinsky family.
The ADL official said he had
called Hank Johnston of the
Suffolk County Human Rights
Commission, asking him to
investigate the Pinsky harass-
ment and to check the lack of
thoroughness of the reaction of
the police in the local Fifth
Precinct.
He said he also called Arthur
Bergman, deputy to County
Executive Klein, asking him to
visit the Pinsky family and to
discuss the Pinsky and other
such incidents with police.
Cooperman said he was
following up each telephone call
with a letter, asking for a "close
watch" on police procedures in
such cases. He told the JTA that
he felt that police attention to
such incidents was ineffective.
HE CITED as an example his
discovery that six neighbors saw
the firebombing destruction of
the Pinsky car and that not one
of them had been called in by
local police for uuest inning as
eyewitnesses. Cooperman also
confirmed a report by Becker
that the sign on the Mastic Beach
Hebrew Center had been defaced
and that its bulletin board had
been smashed recently.
The ADL official said that, in
response to his repeated earlier
warnings, extra police sur-
veillance had been provided
during the past three years for
between 120 to 140 synagogues in
the two counties for the High
Holy Days. He also disclosed
that a Jewish family in East Islip
had sold their home a few years
ago and fled to another location
when the anti-Semitic harass-
mint became unbearable.
Cooperman said he had ap-
peared, on invitation, at a
meeting of the Nassau County
Board of Supervisors on Aug. 27
and read a prepared statement in
which he asserted that in recent
months there had been a variety
of acts of terrorism cross
burnings and swastika smearings
in many communities, in-
cluding Valley Stream, Port
Washington, Woodmere, Union-
dale and Long Beach.
HE SAID he told the
supervisors these were not
Isolated or unusual incidents but
rather "a sad fact of life" on Long
Island. He criticized the per-
sistent official attitude of dis-
missing the incidents as "youth-
ful pranks," asserting they
revealed the "tip of an iceberg" of
silent support of such bigotry in
the general population.
He told the supervisors the
"immediate problem" was that of
preventing further acts by
making apprehension of the per-
petrators a matter of urgency.
Cooperman also proposed estab-
lishing a special unit in the
Nassau County Police Depart-
ment, with funds from the federal
Law Enforcement Assistance Act
and close police department
relations with the federal Justice
Bureau Civil Rights Division and
the New York State Attorney
General.

'Yarmulke Month'
Hester St. Becomes a Fever of Activity
Syria
Demolishes
Old
Synagogue
NEW YORK (JTA) The
centuries old synagogue and
yeshiva of Beth Nassi in Aleppo,
Syria, was demolished by Syrian
authorities, according to reliable
reports received here by the
Committee for the Rescue of
Syrian Jewry, committee
president Abraham Dwek
reported. According to the
report, Dwek said, Syrian
authorities also ordered the
destruction of an entire Jewish
section in Aleppo and the
eviction of Jewish families whose
belongings were thrown into the
street.
Dwek said he sent a telegram
to President Carter, reporting on
the "distressing situation" of the
Jews of Syria and asking the
President to instruct the State
Department to protest "this
outrageous act of sacrilege and
demolition" of the synagogue
and yeshiva, located near the Bab
el Faraj Square in the heart of
Aleppo, as well as the destruction
of the Jewish section.
Dwek said he reiterated his
appeal to Carter to call on Syrian
President Hafez Assad to permit

By DAVID SCHWARTZ
June was "yarmulke" month. Hester Street on
New York's Lower East Side is the center of the
yarmulke industry and if you were out of em-
ployment, you could at least get temporary work
there at this period. It is in June that, the
yarmulke demand is at its height. .
Yarmulkes, of course, are worn at other times
of the year, too. Recently, President Carter in
Israel was shown wearing one but at weddings
they are an essential and June is the most popular
month for marrying.
Someday no doubt there will be a history of the
world written from the standpoint of the
headgear. If you think of the American
Revolutionary period, how can you avoid
thinking of the three-cornered hat? It would have
been impossible to achieve independence without
it. Try putting on a derby or any of the modern
styles of hats on George Washington and no more
does he look like the father of his country.
AFTER THE passing of the revolutionary
period, about the time of Andrew Jackson, you
could have gone over the entire country and
scarcely been able to pick up one of the old three-
cornered hats. The so-called top hat, "stove
pipe," as more commonly designated, became the
great fashion. If you went to party conventions in
the decade before the Civil War, you would see
most of the delegates arrayed in them. Lincoln
apparently used to stuff some of his note papers
in his spacious top hat.
In the west, the broad-brimmed cowboy hat
became the fashion. It has been appropriated
from the Mexican sombreros.
So hats come and go. The yarmulke has stayed
for a long time. One reason perhaps is because it
is so small and light. It can easily be carried in
one pocket. But along with practical con-
siderations there are higher reasons.
If you put on a cowboy hat, you get the feeling
that you are in Arizona and you look about for a
horse. If you put on a yarmulke, the prosaic and
business world vanishes from your mind. You get
a spiritual feeling or that someone around you has
found the object of his love. There is no mandate
for wearing a yarmulke. But as the old Jewish
saying has it, a minhag brecht a din, a custom
transcends a law.
THE BUSINESS of marrying in June itself is a
custom. Among Jews of old, oddly enough, the
great day of love was Yom Kippur. It was the
MWMMMMMMMMMIillMMaNHIMMflMWBrtMMrt
custom among Jews of old for the young women
on Yom Kippur to gather in front of the
synagogue and dance. All the girls borrowed
clothes. This was to give the poor girls an even
break with the rich. The young men stood around
looking on and before the stars came out on Yom
Kippur, marking the end of the fast, many had
found their future mates.
It seems incongruous that the most awesome of
the holidays should be chosen for love, and yet
there was good sense and practical logic behind it
for Yom Kippur brought the maximum at-
tendance at the synagogue, so one had the widest
possible choice.
Also perhaps it is best to make one's choice of
love partner on an empty stomach. If you pledge
your troth after a good dinner, you can't be sure if
wasn't the steak or the cakes that did it, but when
you choose on an empty stomach, you know that
gastronomy did not enter into it.
Perhaps the practice offered a further ad-
vantage. Instead of thinking aobut the stomach
on the fast day, you thought of the heart.
Nowadays, the institution of marriage seems to
be facing some hard knocks. Marriages are still
plentiful, but so are divorces.
PERHAPS THE fact that the old-time Jewish
marriage was often negotiated by the shadchan
was a good thing. The lovers themselves perhaps
approach the problem*too one-sidedly. The
shadchan considered the situation from a broader
perspective.
There is no lack of advice to lovers about how
to pursue their love-making. For instance, the
Bible tells us that Naomi was worried about
beautiful Ruth being without a husband. She has
a relative, a rich bachelor, Boaz, who has a farm.
She tells Ruth to take the Gimel bus and go down
there and lie down on the field. Naomi no doubt
knew the saying of the Midrash that pleasure is
intensified when it comes by way of surprise. So
Ruth is lying down in the corn field, and Boaz
comes along and is hooked.
But, alas, we don't get much advice on how to
make a marriage a success. One of the rabbis of
the Talmud had an idea. His wife seemed to
delight in always giving him what he didn't want
to eat. If he wanted peas, she gave him a nice dish
of carrots, and if he asked for carrots, she gave
him peas. But it didn't bother him. He just asked
for what he didn't want and got what he wanted.
11 is just a matter of art.
