Ms. Ferraro has strong ties

The selection of Ferraro may
help counteract the damage in

"America is not just for some of

history the destruction of the
First Temple in 686 BCE by the
Babylonians, and of the Second
Temple by the Romans more
than 800 years later in 70 CE.
Tradition assigns Tisha B'Av
that day on which the genera-
tion of Israelites which had left
Egypt were decreed to die in the
desert, while a new generation
of free men would enter the
Promised Land.
Tisha B'Av marks as well the
fall of the fortress of Beitar to
the Romans in the year 135 CE,
symbolizing the crushing of the
revolt of Bar Kochba against
Roman dominance. But a year
later, it waa to mark the
Klowing up of the Temple
lount by the Romans and the
establishment of a Roman
temple on the site.
Nor waa tragedy to ceaee in
the centuries that followed. The
prayers of mourning aaid on
Tiaha B'Av, the kinot.' refer to
the burning of 24 cart loads of
the Talmud in Parie in 1242 and
the destruction of scores of
communities during the
Crusades. Tradition dates the
expulsion of the Jewiah com-
munity of Spain, in 1498. after
centuries of a "Golden Age" of
Jewiah life and culture in that
land, to the day of Tiaha B'Av.
Traditional Jewiah law and
custom concretize the feelings of
foriding and anguish that inten-
sify during the three week
period proceeding Tisha B'Av
that marked the increasing
destruction of both the First
and Second Temples. From the
17th day of Tammuz, of the
proceeding month, to Tisha
B'Av, the three week period is
marked by the avoidance of
joyous occasions (such aa
wedding) and of those acts
which would require the "she
hechiyanu' blessing over some-
thing new and enjoyable
The prophetic portions read in
the synagogue speak of moral
degradation, and the punish-
ment that must inevitably
follow. In the nine days imme-
diately pieceeding the fast day,
it is customary to avoid meat or
wine. Indeed the very last meal
on the afternoon of Tiaha B'Av
is on of austerity and

destruction by the Babylonians,

low benches or the floor itself.
The symbolism is that of an

The Jewish FToridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Friday, July 27, 1984
A legend for lovers
would need a very large map of
Israel to show Amuka. There is
no settlement there, no village.
But you will be able to find it. if
you believe in miracles. For
Amuka is said to be the source
of many miracles, and the
reason that Orthodox Jews
travel from all across the world
to come here.
To reach Amuka you must
circumvent the city of Safed in
the Galilee. Israels north, and
find the road that leads to Rosh
Pina. Then take the opposite
direction along a narrow road
twisting and turning through
fragrant pine forests.
Arrows thoughtfully provided
by believers will lead you
towards the mountain summit.
There you will come upon a
deep valley and see a lonely
grave at the bottom. You have
found Amuka.
It is the grave of Rabbi
Jonathan Ben Uzziel, bom in
the first century BCE, Rabbi
Hillel's most outstanding pupil.
Rabbi Jonathan translated the
Prophets into Aramaic, and it is
said that a Heavenly Voice was
heard demanding to know who
it was that had revealed his
mysteries to man. Rabbi
Jonathan answered that he had
done so, "not for the sake of
personal honor, but in order
that disputes shall not multiply
in Israel."
And that's not all. It is said
that the words of Torah were so
sweet on the lips of Rabbi
Jonathan that bands of angels
gathered overhead to listen.
How this learned man came
to occupy a revered place in the
minds and hearts of many
Orthodox Jews so that his grave
site would be a destination of
hundreds of pilgrimages, is a
story in itself.
It seems that because the
Rabbi married very late in life,
he and his wife were unable to
fulfill the commandment. "Be
fruitful and multiply. To
compensate, he told his disciples
on his deathbed that anyone
who fervently wished to marry
should pray at his tomb and
their petition would be granted
within a year.
I visited Amuka after a
young Australian told me in
Jerusalem, "I have been want-
ing to marry for several years,
but somehow it never happened.
Then I prayed at Amuka and
two days later I was introduced
to the young lady who will be
my wife before the end of the
year." He believes it is a miracle
made possible by his visit to
Rabbi Ben Uzziel's tomb.
Who knows? It's happened
enough times for the legend to
develop. Another example. A
few years ago, a young girl
praying for a husband here
forgot her prayer book at the
tomb. It contained her name
and address. A young man
found it. sought her out, and
you can guess the happy
ending. Marriage by miracle or
Jews in the Olym pics
The name of Olympic fame
(Munich. 1972) of Jewish
American swimmer Mark Spitz
is well-known, but who was the
first American Jewish Olympic
gold medal winner?

Prinstein won a gold medal in
the triple jump and a silver in
the running broad jump in Paris
in 1900.

coincidence? Since then, you'd
be surprised how many single
men and women forget their
prayer books with their names
and addresses at the tomb.
Although it is very early,
people are already praying there

"The GUARDIAN PLAN program is
also an expression of love."
Yahrzeit is one of the most meaningful traditions to
Jews. Yahrzeit also reminds us of the realities of life. It
helps us recognize the need to plan for the protection of
our families.
Now, Riverside spoasors a unique program of fam
ily protection, the GUARDIAN PLAN. insurance funded
prearranged funeral program. It's a sensible idea. Ybu get
what you want at a price you can afford. That amount is
guaranteed never to increase. And it can be paid over a
number of years.
But most of all, just as Yahrzeit is a symbol of our love
of family the GUARDIAN PLAN program is an expression of
our concern that the people we worry about have less to
worry about And what could be more in the Jewish tradition
than that?

TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel's
dollar reserves fell by 1360
million in June, largely as a
result of heavy purchases of
foreign currency by the public
fearful of further devaluations of
the Shekel.
The Shekel was devalued by
17.2 percent last month and now
stands at an official rate of
236.40 to $1. The black market
rate over the Jury 4 weekend,
stood at 360 Shekels to tl.
The government is expected
to take an "overnight loan"
from foreign sources, the
Jerusalem Post reported, so that
when official statistics are
released later, the foreign
currency situation will not
appear too bad.
The public rushed to buy
dollars and other foreign
currency before the Shekel sank
so low as to put them out of
reach. The buying spree was
financed in part by the govern-
ment's injection of 40 billion
Shekels (about $169 million)
into the economy in June and
pertly by the conversion of
some 26 billion Shekels (6106
million) of private assets into

Bonn Adds Payments
To Victims of Holocaust
NEW YORK The United
Restitution Organization has
announced that the German
Federal Government approved
limited additional payments to
Nazi victims who left Eastern
Europe between 1953 and 1965
and had previously received
compensation because they were
in concentration camps for three
years or longer. The law
covering these payments became
effective on June 30, 1984.
Holocaust survivors who
years ago received one-time
payments for being incarcerated
in concentration camps for three
years or more are entitled to a
small final payment because
some monies were left in the
fund which was created for this
Persons who were in concen-
tration camps for three years
will receive an additional
payment of DM 1.750; those
who were confined for four years
or more. DM 2.400.

Resolution 242, but the French
President maintained a low
profile on this issue and

two-day visit to Jordan, tried
throughout his stay in Amman
to avoid giving Israel cause for
concern and stuck to his policy
of maintaining good relations
with both Israel and the Arab
He spoke about Palestinian
rights and the need for a Pales-

talks as the Palestinian repre-
Mitterrand at a press
conference in Amman said the
PLO must recognize Israel, as
UN resolutions demand, before
it can take part in any peace
negotiations or hope to win
international recognition.
Mitterrand was scheduled to
make a technical stopover in
Cairo where he was to confer
with Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak. Both Presidents are
especially concerned by the
Iranian-Iraqi conflict and recent
developments in Africa. Both
Egypt and France support
Baghdad and fear that the
spread of the Iranian brand of
Islam might topple Arab
moderate regimes.
French Foreign Minister
Claude Cheysson arrived in Is-
rael to brief Israeli leaders on
Mitterrand's talks. The French
stress that this visit should be
seen as proof of the privileged
relations which now exist
between France and Israel.

Feinstein 's Disappointment Was A Drem

wisdom is encapsulated in a
joke. Jesse Jackson asks the
Lord: "Will there be a woman
president?" The Lord replies:
"Not in your lifetime, Jesse."
After a while, Mr. Jackson asks
again: "Will there be a Jewish
president?" The Lord replies:
"Not in your lifetime, Jesse."
Mr. Jackson thinks some
more and asks a third time:
"Will there be a Black presi-
dent?" Here, the Lord is a bit
more hesitant. Finally, he
responds: "Not in my lifetime.
I am not sure that I agree
with these priorities, divine
though they are meant to be.
My own impulse is to expect a
Black president well before a
woman president (white). And,
in terms of today's political
realities, a Jewish president is
simply not in the cards.
FOR THESE reasons, San
Francisco Mayor Diane Fein-
stein's reaction to being passed
over by Rep. Geraldine Ferraro
as Walter mondale s vice presi-
dential running mate is simply
inexplicable. In response to the
news last week, Feinstein de-
clared: "I've been defeated
before, and this doesn't feel like
a defeat. History was made."
Feinstein is indeed correct
that history was made, but she
is wrong to have shown just
how testy she was in expressing
her obvious disappointment
with the process. If Feinstein
was being considered at all, so
were a bevy of others, including
at least two women, two Blacks
and a Hispanic, most of them,
she should have understood, for
cosmetic reasons.
Feinstein s qualifications and
performance as San Francisco's
chief executive are undoubtedly
sterling, but it was unrealistic of
her to expect the ultimate Mon-
dale call. A Jewish vice presi-
dent is no more thinkable today
than a Jewish president, and
reinstein should have under-
stood this better than anyone
else. *
reinstein was one of a number of
women Mondale "considered"
when there was in fact little
practical thought in his mind of
choosing anv of them
When Sen. Hart's prima
donna attitude foreclosed his
own possibility of being chosen,
and Mondale seemed suddenly
predisposed to the pressure from
the National Organization for
Women as a favorable option for
sprucing up his otherwise
zombie campaign. Feinstein
could hardly have been left in
the field as anything but a
cosmetic afterthought.
Almost never, as a media
phenomenon, was ,Di-Fi" refer-
red to as Jewish, although the
status of the others as women,
black or Hispanic was repeat-
edly emphasized. This should
have been her chie.

The B'nai B'rith leader ac-
knowledged that efforts were
made in the Senate to make the
amendment "less odious'' to the
Jewish community and other
groups. However, he said, "we
are deeply concerned that the

premises being thrown open to
cultists and extremist political
groups seeking respectability
and greater acceptance."
Kraft said that even though
the amendment does not allow
religious clubs to meet during
the school day, "this mingling
of religion with the public

of the American Jewish Com-

that the reaction from various
groups include those which are
ideologically conservative and
others which are theologically
Rudin asserted that this
reaction, which he said was very
broad in range and swift in its
timing, included a denunciation
of Farrakhan's diatribe
attacking Judaism and Israel,
but also went a step further.
"After the Holocaust, Christians
realize that they cannot be
silent when vicious anti-Jewish
attacks are made by public
figures," Rudin said. He added
that the groups which have

bodies, but from local and

Discoveries confirm Biblical nature of Mt. Ebal alter
Following the conclusion of
the fourth season of excavations
by the University of Haifa on
Mt. Ebal, archaeologist Adam
Zertal feels he is dealing with
the ancient altar described in
the Books of Deuteronomy and
According to Zertal, 'Since
no other site of biblical origin
has been found on Mt. Ebal and
since it is the only large burnt
offerings altar known, I am
inclined to agree with the
biblical story because of the
location, the dates of use and
the character of the find."
"What I am looking for is ar-
chaeological evidence that can
be examined in line with biblical
traditions," Zertal says. "I did
not find Joshua's signature, nor
did I go looking for it.
"With Mt. Ebal we have been
lucky, an we have the Samaritan
tradition of the area which
preserved the name of Mt. Ebal
since Persian times. There is no
scholar today who can disagree
with its identification. This is
very important because many
other sites are in doubt as to
their authenticity."
There is no doubt in Zertal s
mind that he is dealing with one
of the ancient Israelites large
altars used for burnt offerings.
"There is a direct connection of
the architecture and cons
traction of the Mt. Ebal altar,"
he says, "to the Second
Temple's altar as it is described
in the Mishna (early oral inter-
pretations of the Bible).
"Since no other parallels exist
in Israel as the Temple altar
is buried and the ShOo altar
destroyed and no other large
altars for burnt offerings have
been found, the only way we
could identify the Mt. Ebal altar
was by comparing it to the
Mishna. We found a direct
relationship between our altar
and the Mishnaic description of
the Second Temple altar in
New evidence shows that the
ritual site on Mt. Ebal was not
just an altar but was an entire
ritual center used during a short
period of time, when the Isra-
elites first began to settle in
Eretz Yisrael.
According to Zertal. who led
the archaeological team, the
ritual site was used for a central
national ceremony and appears
to have been a pilgrimage site
during the end of the 13th
century B.C. and in the first
half of the 12th century B.C.
"However," Zertal says, "none

Everyman 9s University holds conference
on Jewish Musical heritage
Ramat Aviv, Israel New
musical creativity in Israel and
Jewish communities elsewhere
has resulted from a trend to
return to roots and seek our
self-identity. Professor Amnon
Shiloah reported at a conference
on "The Musical Heritage of
Jewish Communities." The con-
ference was held by Everyman's
University Israel's Open
University in connection with
an awards ceremony at which 77
students received scholarships.
An attempt to mold a single
"Israeli" entity and play down
cultural differences discouraged
musical expression in the early
years of the State of Israel, he
said. "In more recent years, the
reverse trend of pride in cultural
roots and heritage has resulted
in musical creativity and a
return to styles which the
parent generation brought with
them from the Diaspora." he
Professor Shiloah heads a
team of scholars who are pre-
paring a course on the musical
heritage of Jewish communities

raeli settlement, such as houses
or silos, were found this year."
"This is significant," he says,
"because it strengthens the
ritual nature of the site. People
came there especially for
sacrificing and pilgrimages."
Most important in dating the
altar and the site to the 13th
centuries B.C. was the discovery
of a scarab decorated with a
geometric design, similar to
those used during Ramases II
rule in 13th century B.C. Eypt.
In addition, all pottery found at
the altar dates from this short
time perid.
Another interesting discovery
is that the altar's corners are
accurately directed to the points
of the compass. According to
Zertal this feature is unique to
all Mesopotamian ritual
In addition, archaeologists
discovered that the large altar is
built over the remains of an
earlier stone structure. Two
meters in diameter, the
structure was filled with bones
and ashes.
Also discovered during the
1984 excavations were walls
separating the ritual site into
inner and outer areas. The altar
is at the center. The inner area
houses approximately 60 round
and square stone structures
containing ashes, bones and
pottery vessels. The vessels are

according to an Israeli military

Dr. Davidson remembers a

His father, a mechanical

school in 1971 as valedictorian,
National Merit Scholar and
student body president, and
then entered Baylon University
in Waco, Tex., "a city of
Baptists, chicken-fried steak and
the Brazos Queen."
It was at Baylor that Dr.
Davidson, a religion major, read
"The Essence of Judaism" and
"This People Israel" by Dr. Leo
Baeck, leader of German Jewry
during the Nazi era, and was
taught by his professors "that

Last year, the youths decided
to emulate other German towns
and invite the survivors for a
visit. With the help of the older
residents who witnessed the
events of the thirties and
forties, they compiled a list of
Jewish survivors, now living in
Melbourne, Australia; Santiago,
Chile; San Francisco and Haifa.
They initiated a local fund-
raising campaign to pay
expenses. The town authorities
demonstrated their good will by
agreeing to bear most of the
costs. Of the 24 former Jever
Jews known to be alive, a total
of 17 responses were received
from one-time residents of the
town, including their spouses.
They arrived in Jever to a warm
welcome and spent a week there
sightseeing, meeting local
inhabitants and the students
who initiated the project. They
were guests at a reception at the
town hall.
One of the returnees, Liselotte
Spitzer, wrote later, in a letter
published in the local news-
paper: "It was a nice dream.
Jever was my home town. It is
there I spent the first 30 years
of my life, until it became
impossible anymore. We admire
these young people who made
possible the visit. This week in
Jever was an unforgettable
head start on fulfilling college
language requirements," Her-
ring said.
The college credit program,
which is sponsored by Miami
Dade Community College, is
open to incoming high school
students who are taught at
basic, regular and advanced
levels of instruction.
Coordinated through the Cen-
tral Agency for Jewish Educa-
tion (CAJE), the program now
has over 50 students enrolled.
The school serves both Dade
and Broward Counties with
scholarship funds provided in
part by the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale
through its United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign.
As part of the many activities
Jewish High School offers,
about 40 students from the
School recently returned from a
three-day trip to Central
Florida. Students toured the
Kennedy Space Center at Cape
Canaveral, stayed over at a
Temple in Orlando, visited the
city of Kissimmee, and toured
Disneyworld and Epcot Center.
According to Rabbi Howard
Seif, teacher of Jewish studies
at the School, "Everyone had an
excellent time many more
similar trips will be planned for
the future."

congenial Baptist began the
transformation into a Jew by
choice," he reveals.
After receiving his BA degree
magna cum laud*, in 1975, Dr.
Davidson moved into Houston
to attend Baylor College of
Medicine. While "delivering 60
or so babiee, assisting at dozens
and dozens of coronary by-
passes and listening to in-
numerable patients describe the
relentless progress of their
chronic diseases," he also
continued his study of Judaism,
attended services at Congrega-
tion Beth Israel and married a
"childhood friend of heart and
mind." On November 30, 1979,
following his graduation from
medical school. Dr. Davidson,
together with his wife, formally
converted to Judaism under the
guidance of Rabbi Hyman
Judah Scha enter, a 1931
graduate of Hebrew Union
College, rabbi-emeritus of Beth
"He came to me," Rabbi
Scbachtel relates, "already
convinced he wanted to become
a Jew. His own search for the
spiritual approach to life and
man's attitude toward God led
him to Judaism."
After completing medical
school, Dr. Davidson spent
three years as a professor at the
University of Texas Nursing
School, teaching physiology and
anatomy. This was followed by
a medical internship at the
University of Cincinnati's
teaching hospital, during which
he decided to apply to Hebrew
I'nion College.
"I have no tolerance for
remaining as ignorant as I
presently am regarding Jewish
sources and ritual," Dr.
Davidson says in explaining his
decision to enter HUC.
"Judaism is not for me a
congenital convenience. Every-
thing is new, especially in ritual
and observance.'
Like all first-year
School, Dr. Davidson is con-
centrating on mastering the
Hebrew language. Norma
Davidson is attending a
municipal ulpan, singing in the
HUC choir and "generally keep-
ing us both sane."
Looking back now, what
compelled the Davidsons to
choose Judaism? "We are first
Jews becasue it 'feels' right," he
explains. "We all become or
remain Jewish because we
experience a largely unconscious
psychological and spiritual
wholeness as praying, observant
members of the Jewish com-
munity that we do not
experience elsewhere.
"Secondly," he continues, "we
claim Judaism again and again
because beyond the psycho-
logical, spiritual voids that it
may fill in our psyches, it also
engages us in a most conscious
and intellectual way. We find it
to be a fascinating way of
seeing and being in the world."
Immersed in his studies in
Jerusalem, Dr. Davidson has no
quick answers regarding his fu-
ture as either rabbi or physician.
"The question is not what I am
going to do," he says. "The
question is who I am going to
be. Hopefully," he adds, "I will
first be a literate Jewish father
and husband whose children
have his stubborneea of will and
his wife's intelligence. I hope
that my children will of course
remain Jewish," he concludes,
"but I hope equally they will
see in the lives of weir parents
the importance of every indivi-
dual's struggle to know God."

Jews urged to respond to NAACP call
for stronger ties between Blacks and Jews
American Jewish Congress has
called on the Jewish community
to "respond warmly" to the call
by the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored
People for strengthening of ties
between the Black and Jewish
"We welcome the NAACP's
call to its members to retain
close historical ties between
Black and Jewish communities."
AJCongress executive director
Henry Siegman said. "At a time
of tension and mistrust, it is an
important reminder that the
stake of Blacks. Jews and other
minorities have in a responsible
and mutually respectful political
discourse far transcends the
differences that we may have."
The NAACP, which recently
met in Kansas City for its 70th
convention, adopted a resolution
at its closing session calling on
its local branches to create
coalitions and help "our Jewish
counterparts in all areas of
relevance to our communities,
civil rights in general and
human rights in particular."
NAACP officials ack-
nowledged that the resolution
was significant in view of the
deterioration of relations
between the two communities.

Her late husband, Meinoud
Rost van Tonningen, was one of
the top Nazis in Holland both
before and during the German
occupation of that country and
a fanatical anti-Semite. Begin-

chief of the Dutch Nazi daily
Het Nationale Dagblad. During
the occupation he was appointed
president of The Netherlands
State Bank.
He was arrested immediately
after the liberation of Holland in
1945 and committed suicide in
prison. His wife maintains he
was murdered. Before their mar-
riage she was leader of the
womens corps of the Dutch Nazi
movement. Their wedding, in
December. 1940, was a Nazi
social event, attended by the

Labels Documents 'Top Secret
The Cabinet acting on
the recommendations of
security agencies, has
refused former Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon's
request for release of clas-
sified documents relating to
the Sabra and Shatila
refugee camps massacres
which he says he needs to
pursue his $50 million libel
suit against Time
Sharon filed suit against Time
last year, charging that the mass
circulation American news
weekly "heavily damaged" his
reputation by alleging that he
had secretly urged the Christian
Phalangists to massacre Pales-
tinians in the two West Beirut
camps in September, 1982, to
avenge the assassination of their
leader, President-elect Bashir
Gemayel of Lebanon.
accusation waa baaed on a secret
appendix to the report by the
commission of inquiry into the
massacre, headed by Supreme
Court President Yitzhak Kaban.
The Kahan Commission, in its
findings published early in 1983,
found Sharon indirectly respon-
sible for the massacre because he
had ignored the likelihood of
Phalangist reprisals when he
allowed them to enter the refugee
camps in search of terrorists
believed hiding there.
Sharon belieVes the documents
which the Kahan panel studied
but which remains classified for
security reasons, would support
his claim that he it the victim of
libel Premier YJuhah Shamir
suggested at a Cabinet
meeting that Time magazine
authorize an Israeli citizen whom
it trusts to review the secret
material which the government
would put at his disposal.
This selected citizen, Shamir
said, would be allowed to prepare
an affidavit which would state
whether or not the material
contains any confirmation of the
allegations Time made against
Sharon, though the material
itself would remain secret. He
told the Cabinet that wider
disclosure of the material, as
requested by Shamir, would be
contrary to the national interest.
was not satisfied with the
suggested procedure. According
to Cabinet sources, he and
Shamir had a vituperative
exchange during the meeting
today. Sharon reportedly
repeated his charge that the
Cabinet had "abandoned" him to
bear the full brunt of events in
Lebanon while other ministers
equally responsible were excused.
Sharon's request for release of
the classified documents waa
made in confidence. It was not
intended to be generally known
but was in fact leaked to the news

Dan Markka- said hare that a
copy of Sharon's request had bean
eent, apparently without his
knowledge, to the lawyers repre-
senting Time in New York.
Time informed its Israel
Bureau of the request and it
swiftly become known to the local
media, Meridor said. According
to his version, there waa no leak
from the security agencies which
the Cabinet had consulted with
respect to the request.

is more frightening, as Henry

of the notion that in childhood
there is innocence (Sigmund

well) deprives the corrupted
adult world of its fondest illu-
sion, its fondest struggle to
return to that innocence.
The ice cream vendor, better
than I, can soothe the agony of
Diane Feinstein in this Democ-

that of Jesse Jackson. Such

Cantors Assembly gets $160,000 U.S. grant
TA Uhonors Scientist Refusnik
New York (JTA) The Can-
ton Assembly, an arm of Con-
servative Judaism, has been
awarded $160,000 by the Na-
tional Endowment for the Hu-
manities to prepare and publish
the first comprehensive history
of the cantorate in America, ac-
cording to Cantor Samuel
Rosenbaum, Assembly executive
vice president.
He said that, under terms of
the three-year grant, the study
will assess the changing role of
the cantor as an individual
functioning in the community;
the changing nature of the can-
torate; and changes in the
musk and liturgy that form the
art of the cantor.
The study, through documen-
tary and photographic research,
reviews of sheet music and re-
cordings, survey questionnaires
and interviews, will examine the
cantor's role in preserving tradi-
tional Jewish culture, and
adapting it to its surroundings
during 300 years of Jewish life
in America.
He said that the study will
also explore the underlying
belief system, social organiza-
tion, material culture and
historical context of cantonal
music, as well as the music
Cantor Ivan Perlman, Assem-
bly president, said that "despite
the enormous changes which
have taken place in Jewish life
over the centuries, the idea that
prayer must be musically ex-
pressed by a specialist acting as
'sheliach tzibbur' messenger
of the congregation has re-
mained stable."
He said the Assembly, formed
in 1947, consists of more than
400 cantors holding full-time
pulpits throughout the United
States and Canada. It publishes
