Rosh Hashona Past: How Do You Score on This Quiz?
What historical significance
dors the date of Rosh Hashona
According to one opinion (that
of Rabbi Elieier) in the Tannaitic
literature the world was created
on that date. (Talmud Babli
Tractate Rosh Hashona 11a). Ac-
tually this seems to refer to the
end of the creation process, it be-
ins the day that man himself
was created (Pesikta D'Rab Ka-
hanc where the date for the be-
ginning of the creation is given
a 25 days in Elul). The Kabbal-
ists point out that the Hebrew
letters that go into making up
ti.e word "B Reshith" (i.e., in
the Beginning', also make up the
tease "B'Aleph Tishri" (i.e., on
the first day of Tishri V
Sources who point to Rosh Ha-
shona as a day of judgment indi-
cate that the first man (Adam)
1 ;udced and forgiven on this
day. The Kabbalists also assert
that Cain and Abel brought their
sacrifices on the day of Rosh
Hashona (Zohar Chadash. Gen-
esis 4:2). The prayer of the an-
gel] that Sarah shall boar a child
was offered and accepted on the
day of Rosh Hashona which is
considered to be the day she
conceived (Pesikt3 Rabbati 177a).
Some claim the sacrifice of Isaac
took place on Rosh Hashona. Ac-
cording to the Book of Jubilees
(31 3) the patriarch Jacob built
the altar at Beth El on Rosh Ha-
hona The Zohar claims that it
was on the day of Rosh Hashona
that Elisha proDhesied the good
news to the Shunamite woman
that she would have a child
(Zohar Par I, 160b). The day on
which Satan came to prosecute

I \ \
Others claim that the roundness
of the Challah eaten on the day
of Rosh Hashona is a replica of
a crown. It is on Rosh Hashona
that the Jew expresses the dis-
tinct feeling that the Almighty is
the Supreme King of the Uni-
verse. In an allegorical sense the
Jew 'crowns" the Almighty on
the day of Rosh Hashona. Texts
of the liturgy often refer to such
a concept during the prayers of
the day of Rosh Hashona. The
roundness of the Challah thus
becomes a symbol of the crown
indicating the unquestionable
royalty and power of the Almigh-
ty who is the sole judge and also
the sole forgiver for the human

Why does the festival of
Rosh Hashona occur at the be-
ginning of the month while all
the other malor Jewish festi-
val* occur at the middle of the
From a practical standpoint it
is of course most proper that a
festival which signifies the be-
ginning of the year take place
on the first day of a month. It
is rather add to have the be-
ginning of the year in the mid-
dle of the month. The medieval
commentators claim that the Al-
mighty designed Rosh Hashona
to take place at the beginning of
the month as a means of protec-
tion of his people.
When Satan approaches the
Almighty en Rosh Hashona to
complain that His people sinned,
the Almighty tells him 'Bring
witnesses." The classic witness of
the prosecution against the peo-
ple are the sun and moon. Satan
then complains that he can only
find one witness, i.e., the sun,
since the moon is scarcely visible
at the beginning of the month.
Since two witnessses are required
to prosecute human torts and
only one is available. Satan is
left handicapped. By the time
the moon becomes of size, (i.e.,
about the tenth of the month)
and Satan is ready to add the
moon's testimony, the people
have already atoned for their

sin during the ten days of Peni-
tence and Yom Kippur and have
alreadv been forgiven. (Machor
Vitri 373). The other festivals,
especially Passover and Succoth,
take place in the middle of the
month because the fullness of the
moon at that time is a symbol of
blessing and prosperity. Shavuoth
(which takes place on the sixth
of the month, unlike Passover,
which takes place on the fifteenth
of the month) should be consid-
ered as a climax to the Passover
holiday which preceded it. since
its date is always reckoned by
counting off seven weeks after
the beginning of the previous
Passover festival.

What i* the origin of the
Avinu Malkeinu" (Our Father,
our King) prayer which is of-
fered on Rosh Hashona?
TheTalmud (Tractate Ta'anit
25b) relates that Rabbi Akiba
composed the first verse of this
prayer on one occasion of
drought. When he cried out "Our
Father. Our King, we have sinned
before Thee," the heavens open-
ed and the rains came.
Since then many verses have
been added following the ttyhe
of this first verse 'ie, Our
Father, Our King), and these
have been chanted on any day
of trial, tribulation and woe I .
a fast day. etc) Rosh Hashona
and the ten days of penitence
that follow are considered days
of judgment and thus these verses
are recited so that the Almighty
will have compassion on us dur-
ing our hour of need.
The verses towards the end of
thr> prayer have been composed
as late as during the crusades
when there were so many in no
cent victims .-lain among our peo-
ple. We bring this to mind when
we offer these prayers as if to
say. we have indeed already
been punished enough
Why do some people refrain
from eating nuts on Rosh Ha-
Rabbi Moses Isserles traces
this practice to the Maharil. Two
reasons are tnted. First, the nu-
merical equivalence of the let-
ters which go into making up the
Hebrew word for "nut" (egoz)
is equal to that of the letters
which go into making up the
word "sin" (chet). Secondly, it
was feared that the consumption
of nuts would irritate the throat,
causing extra mucus to form and
would create a disturbance dur-
ing services in the synagogue
brought about by so many people
attempting to clear their throats.
Early writers noticed that cer-
tain "nut trees had a tendency to
damage and weaken other trees
that were close by.
Some lexicographer- Mandated
the Latin word for nut
with a verb meaning to damage
fnocere). Even though there are
a number of Talmudic sources
which u>e the symbol of a nut
as one for good and virtue, many
chose to use it as a symbol of
sin to such an extent that some
did not allow nuts to be eaten
after Hoshaoa Raba nhc la.-t day
of the Sukkoth festival, wiiieh is
judgment period).
How did the High Holy Days
come to be konwn as "days of
awe" (Yomim Noraim)?
According to Prof Elbogen.
this term was not found until
medieval times Ezra, the scribe,
in biblical times, asked the peo-
ple to refrain from sadness on
Rosh Hashona He called for a
spirit of festivity on that day
iNihemiah 8: 9-12i. In the Mia*
nah. Rosh Hashona is referred to
as the holiday of Rosh Hashona."
The Amoraim spoke of the fact
that a Jew should feel happy and
confident on Rosh Hashona be-
cause he knows the Almight) will
give him every' chance.
In the period of Ganoim. we
find that Rosh Hashona was re
ferred to as a holiday of joy and
that thoae portions of vthrr hM
day liturgies which speak of jc
were also included in the ~
Hashona liturgy (Vehasienu).
the 11th century there arose
difference of opinion in Mainz
to whether this should be so
the 14th century, these passagt
were removed from the liturgy
a rule.
It is quite possible, and .,,
ing to some most certain, that thii
change came about because
the many persecutions suffer
by Jew* especially during t
period of the Crusades To thu
day. the High Holy Days remajj
days of awe. and every Jewt j

House Postpones Vote on Mills-Vanik Bill
The House Ways and Means Com-
mittee postponed its crucial vote
on most favored nation treatment
for the Soviet Union as Congres-
sional sentiment mounted in fa-
vor of the Mills-Vanik Free Emi-
gration Act and its companion
measure in the Senate, the Jack-
son Amendment.
Secretary- of State Dr. Henry
Kissinger, who was scheduled to
testify on the Mills-Vanik meas-
ure before the committee, can-
celled his appearance.
White House Deputy Press Sec-
retary Gerald Warren told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
he "understood" that the com-
mittee had asked Dr. Kissinger
to delay his testimony. He had
been expected to oppose the
Mills-Vanik bill linking MFN sta-
tus to a relaxation of Soviet em-
igration policies.

was confirmed for the office of

The House committee's post-
ponement of its vote on the Mills-

meeting, was apparently based
on the reported view of its act-

Congress toward the Soviet
The Senate voted to condemn
the Soviet Union for its harsh
treatment of dissident intellect-
uals and demanded that President
Nixon apply pressure during cur-
rent trade and disarmament talks
to end Soviet repression.
THE SENATE acted on a reso-
lution by Sen. Walter Mondale
(Dem.-Minn.) after Sen. Henry
M. Jackson (Dem.-Wash.) read a
letter from Soviet physicist An-
drei Sakharov appealing for pas-
sage of the Jackson Amendment.
Ullman. who is not one of the
original 18 supporters of the
Mills-Vanik bill on the Ways and
Means Committee, asked a delay
on the vote until next week "on

pected to try to sway more sup-
porters from the bill which the
Nixon administration opposes.
MCGOVERN SAID in a state-
ment after the committee voted
that he could not back Dr. Kis-
singer's confirmation in view of
his role in "the needless pro-
longation" of the Indo-China war
and "the tragedy" of the Pakis

that has become increasingly vis-
ible in recent years. "The problem
of integration is sharper now than
any time in the past," he said.
The Black Panthers and others
come and demand the same things
that new immigrants get. We have
to solve this problem and it costs
a lot."
Sapir's reference to millionaires
came during a question and an-
swer session when one rabbi asked
him to explain why a country like
Israel which has been described
U an affluent society in American

The reference was to a recent
New York Times story' from Jeru-
salem which described luxurious
living by Israel's wealthier set.
Sapir said the rich in Israel are
those who came with money and
that it took only S250.000 to be a
'millionaire" in Israel. While there
are wealthy Israelis. Israel is also

Labor Party
'Shocked" By
Chilean Coup
Israeli Labor Party expressed sor-
row and shock over the military
coup in Chile and the death, ap-
parently by suicide, of President
Salvador Allende Gossens.
The message was cabled by
Labor Party Secretary General
Aharon Yadlin to the chairman of
the Socialist International in Vi-
enna, and to the representative of
ttie Chilean Radical Party at the
International, which had been part
of President Allende's left-wing
Eban said at Sunday's Cabinet
meeting that the Foreign Ministry
is waiting for more detailed infor-
mation on events in Chile from
the Israeli Embassy in Santiago.
The Foreign Ministry received
its first communication from the
Chilean military junta Monday
stating that it was now the legtl
government of Chile.
Meanwhile the Chilean Ambas-
sador. Carlos Diemer. informed the
Foreign Ministry that he has
appointed the Chilean Consul, Ju-
lio Barrenechea, as interim
charge d'affaires.
DIEMER HAD been ordered
earlier by the military junta in
Santiago to hand over his duties
to Barrenechea but had declined
to do so at first.
The new Israeli left-wing fac-

ment over the weekend not to
recognize the military regime in

Our Yom Kippur Prayers
Kol Nidre will be chanted in Greater Miami and
throughout the world at sundown tonight. This be-
gins the awesome Yom Kippur observance all day
Yom Kippur is a fast day during which our fate
in the Book of Life for the New Year is sealed. "Who
shall live?" we ask. "Who shall die?"
Men, women and children of all ages unite in
reciting their wrongs committed during the outgoing
year. As one people, we accept not only our own
transgressions but those of our brothers as our own.
And we offer up a plea for the divine acceptance
of our repentance.
In this sense, the Day of Atonement is also a
Day of At-One-ment. We are not only reconciled with
ourselves. We are also reconciled with our people.
And with God.
May our prayers be answered.
An Issue of International Morality
Israel's position on the entry of East Germany into
the United Nations recalls a moment in history the world
would prefer to forget.
Not only is East Germany another Soviet vote at the
UN in the guise of an independent government, but it is
a government that has refused to recognize the responsi-
bility of its dreadful role during the Hitler period.
Compounding this is the' apparently cavalier way in
which East Germany is approaching Arab terrorism.
Israel's envoy to the UN. Yosef Tekoah, described it
most accurately when he charged the East Germans with
"giving support and practical assistance to the campaign
of violence and murder waged against Israel, and the
Jewish people by Arab terror organizations."
But Arab terrorism engulfs more than Israel and the
Jews generally. It shows the kind of indifference to stand-
ards of civilization that the world showed the murdered
athletes and that the world cannot shrug off guite so
And so the Israeli vote at the United Nations, while
no one ever anticipated it would block East German mem-
bership, at least raised an issue of international morality
that the UN too often sidesteps.
Dr. Kissinger: A Mixed Blessing
The mixed blessing of Henry Kissinger as secretary
of state was clear within hours of his being sworn in.
First, Dr Kissinger let it be known that he will be press-
ing the issue of the Soviet Union as a 'Most Favored Na-
tion." This means that he is already on record as betray-
ing Jews in the Soviet Union whose sacrifices are monu-
mental as they seek ways of emigrating from that most
unfavored land of oppression.
In turn, this means that he will be relentlessly pursuing
the administration's unalterable opposition to the Jackson
You have only to read the statements of such notables
as Andrei Sakharov and Alexander Solzhenytsin to see
how the demise of the Jackson Amendment can very well
mean the demise of the spark of human freedom their
countrymen seem increasingly to be nurturing.
Second, Dr. Kissinger's address before the United
Nations on Monday inspired an Arab boycott of his plea
for justice in the Middle East on the basis that Dr. Kissinger
can't be for justice there or anywhere else because, if one
is to read the Arabs rightly, he is a Jew and therefore a
None of which can bode well either for American for-
eign policy during the years ahead for the American Jew-
ish community, whose struggle in the cause of the very
justice Dr. Kissinger talked about at the UN is so ironic-
ally being betrayed by his new position of power.
Politics of the Energy Crisis
last, the now Israeli ambassador
quietlv flew to Tel Aviv to con-
sult with his government. His mo-
tive was simple. The extreme y
shrewd Simcha Dinitz is deeply
worried bv the grisly politics of
the American energy problem
and so are the Israeli leaders.
In the present feckless climate,
it will be well to show why the
energy problem has become so
much more worrying, and so sud-
denly, before getting on with the
politics inherent in it. In brief,
all the optimists about energ)
have been basing all their hopes
on large annual increases in I S.
imports of oil from the Middle
East. Above all. Saudi Arabia,
with the great pool to tap. was
relied on to increase its output
at the rate of 25 per cent annum.
A THRILL of horror went
through the U.S. government and
the oil industry when King Faisal
of Saudi Arabia announced that
his country's output would not
be increased by a single barrel of
crude. He would only think about
increasing output, King Faisal
added, when the United States
and its allies had forced Israel
to give the Arabs all they have
so long demanded.
The optimists about energy
uniformly wrong to date, please
remember are now muttering
that Kip~ Faisal does not mean
a word he says. The people wht
have been right about the energy
problem are convinced in con
trast. that King Faisal means ev-
ery word of it
This glum conviction is shared
by Israeli intelligence. There tl
no incentive for the Saudi Arab-
ians to go above the present level
of about 85 million barrels of
crude per day. The vast resulting
dollar revenue is all and more
than all they can spend.
THE SHAH of Iran further
cannot cover more than a small
share of the deficit that must re-
sult from King Faisal's hold-
down .->rder. Consequently, the
outlook is for a rather severe. In-
definitely prolonged energy
shortage, with devil-lake-the-hind-
most competition among the user
nations, including Japan and most
of the Western Europeans.
The fuel oil rationing the Presi-
dent is already talking about for
next winter can easily merge in
to gasoline rationing next sum-
mer. And so it will go.
In this situation, finally. Prcsi
dent Nixon's program for solving
the energy problem was never
much more than a collection of
band-aids to be pasted over a
cancer. Yet the Congress will not
even touch several of the most
vital aspects of the Nixon band-
aid program, such as the deregu-
lation of natural gas prices to
stimulate larger output.
THE GREAT vogue long en-
joyed by the environmentalists is
the root cause of this congres
sional imobility. This will enable
President Nixon to say. later on.
that his band-aid program might
have done the trick if it had not
been for Congress Anyway the
end of the environmentalist vogue
can of course be easily predicted
the moment fuel oil and gasoline
begin to be rationed.
But recognition of this coun-
try's need to produce every bit
of energy we- can get from our
own resources is no more than
the beginning of the energy prob-
lem's ugly politics Consider King
Faisals demand. Then consider
the response we have already
seen in th" form of a letter to
his stockholders from Otto Miller,
chairman of the board of the
Standard Oil Co. of California.
MILLER SAID, in effect, that
this country ought to pay just
about any political price the
Arabs might demand, at Israel s
cost, naturally, in order to main
tain the needed flow of Arab oil.
It was a wonderfully plain argu-
atent. not unconnected with the
fact that the vast majority of
California Standards reserves of'
crude are to be found in Saudi
The natural result of Millers
Utter was a storm of protest
from the American Jewish com
munitv The storm frightened the
big oil" companies, and silence has
during and dependable One ma
as well be blunt about the pu
now fallen. But anyone with
particle of political common1
sense can easily see that this

Sees It
WASHINGTON What stands out in the army coup in Chile,
and the suicide of President Salvador Allende. is the stark trag-
edy of it Even at best, military takeovers arc uncreative short-
cuts to the playing out of history, and this one goes against the
Chilean tradition of an unpolitical officer corps, and subtracts
another from the dwindling number of nonmilitary South Amer-
ican regimes.
Allende "s personal tragedy gives poignancy to the whole ill-
fated adventure of his regime I ntil there is evidence the other
way. W must accept the suicide version of his death. It adds

He was a man who believed in combat, yet when he suffered
the defeat of his hopes, he chose to snuff out his life the act
of a man who couldn't stand to face the collapse of the structure

himself (as the report goes) with the automatic rifle which was
a gift from Fidel Castro: The revolution devours its children.

he would in time doom them.

Year ill Israel Opened
With Murder at Munich
"MB YEAR opened under the
' shadow of the Munich trag-
edy The horror of that Septem-
ber day awakened a sudden up-
surge of identification comparable
with that preceding the Six-Day
War. Throughout the subsequent
year, the most spectacular de-
velopments in th<> Arab-Israel
conflict involved terror and coun-
ter-terror in various parts of the
In itself, this constituted a
tribute to Israel's handling of the
security situation within its own
borders, but it had the effect on
occasions of bringing the conflict
uncomfortably home to Jews else-
where in the world. The most
vivid expression occurred with
the despatch of letter bombs to
people with Jewish names ap-
parently selected at random from
the telephone book.
THIS CAUSED a passing scare
but suddenly brought Jews out-
side Israel "into the front line."
The other major incident that
made a sharp, if brief, impact was
the shooting down of the Libyan
plane. The strength of the im-
mediate world reaction, even
among circles usually amicably
disposed towards Israel, came as
a surprise (although some coun-
tercharges of "latent anti-Semit-
ism" were unfounded and ill-
wise) and caused a moment of
perplexity among certain Jewish
Outside Israel, the main con-
cern was again with the Jews of
the Soviet Union. The basic fact
here is that the miracle" emigra-
tion continued throughout the
year and another 30.000-35.000
Jews left Russia for Israel. Jews
throughout the world have re-
mained on the aJert and have
worked for the freest possible
emigration of those Jews who
wish to leave.
Their activities during the past
year concentrated on the aboli-
tion of the diploma tax and inter-
ventions on behalf of individuals
who were not allowed to leave
(and in some instances were im-
prisoned). The fate of the ran-
som tax was a striking victory for
Jewish action. The USSR de-
manded that emigrants with an
academic background should re-
fund the state for their education
before being allowed to leave.
The high assessment of this sum
made it prohibitive for most ;
academics. News of the tax
evoked worldwide protest.
REPORTS FROM Russia spoke
of its being softened, then hard-
ened, then ratified by the Su-
preme Soviet. The protest move-
ment maintained that the tax, in
effect, amounted to a ransoman
unthinkable demand in modern
society. The opposition was most
influential and effective in the
U.S. because the U.S.-Russian
rapprochment and especially the
Russian need for an economic
agreement made the U.S.S.R. par-
ticularly vulnerable. American
Jews made great efforts to obtain
Congressional backing and proved
so successful that the issue
threatened the ratification of
trade agreements with Russia.
Top American advisers, such as
Treasury Secretary Schultz and j
Presidential Adviser Kissinger
made representations in Moscow I
on the subject. The Kremlin lead-,
er had to give in and while, to I
save face, the tax remained on I
the statute books, it was in fact I
shelved. Later in the year there
were even indications that a
proposed new citizenship law in
Russia may lead to a general im-1
provement in the Soviet Union's
policy on Jewish emigration.
The climax of activity on be-
half of Russian Jewry preceded
Brezhnev's visit to the U.S. The
possibility of a hostile reception
contributed to moving the Rus-:
sian leadership to make conces-
aim on the subject of Jewish \
emigration and the climate
cleared considerably. This en-
abled American Jewish leaders to '
dissuade American Jewry from

Standards voted to include wom-

cedurei, it was left to the indi-
vidual Conservative rabbi to ap-
ply it in his conmcKation.
Rabbi Wolfe Kidman executive
vicfl president of the Rabbinical
Assembly, the association of Con-
servative rabbis, predicted the
practice would become standard
in Conservative congregations
within the next two decades.
THE BASIC point of the Or-
thodox criticism was that the
change was a violation of halacha.

sumption" by a woman of a non-
obligatory responsibility "does
not transform the act into one of
halachic obligation., and a wom-
an so doing therefore "cannot be
counted as part of a minyan."
IN ALL the uproar, two rele-
vant issues were generally ig-
nored. One was whether Jewish

There are Jewish women who

contend it has been adapted to

and can be adapted in the pres-
ent to end what they consider
their second class status. A num-
ber of such women, identifying
themselves as both Orthodox and
Conservative, formed an organi-

Nashim members, speaking at ;i

convention, listed the changes in
halacha they considered neces-
sary, starting with acceptance as
members of the minyan. Others
included permission to function
a- cantors and rabbis in the syna-
gogue and to be considered as
bound to perform all command-
ments equally with men.
A YOUNG wife or an Orthodox
rabbi, who is not a member of
Ezrat Nashim but in sympathy
with its lioals. told 'he JTA she
supported the Conservative rulina

ism would eventually move in
that direction. Mrs. Blu Green-
berg, wife of Rabbi Yitzhak

en did have a secondary role and
that there was "nothing inherent"
in halacha mandating such a role.
Mrs. Greenberg, who teaches
religious studies at the College

Rabbi Kelman did not share
such fears. He said there had
been two crouDs in American

the "militant separatists" and the
"cooperators." He said the latest
Orthodox reaction represented a
development which was neither
new nor unpredictable and that it
would make "absolutely no dif-
ference" in existing cooperative
efforts. He asserted the Orthodox
militants would remain militants
and that the cooperators would
continue to cooperate.
Shun Anti-Semitism. Chile Told
By Special Report
NEW YORK The American
Jewish Committee has called up-
on the new government of Chile
to "be alert to any signs or acts
of anti-Semitism" in the wake of
the overthrow of the Allende gov-
ernment, and "to be prepared to
uphold Chile's proud record as a
democratic nation by taking ap-
propriate action against those
who would attempt to promote
anti-Semitism within its borders."
In a statement by Elmer L.
Winter, AJC national president,
the organization pointed to the
fact that "disturbing evidence of
growing anti-Semitism appeared
in the press and among certain
elements in Chilean society" in
the period preceding Tuesday's
LAST MONTH, Winter stated,
"La Prensa. a newspaper pub-
lished in Santiago by members
of the opposition Christian Dem-
ocratic party, printed an article
headed Chile, Jewish Commu-
nism; Russia, anti-Jewish Com-
munism.' which was strongly
anti-Semitic. La Segunda. a mod-
erate Santiago newspaper, pub-
lished a virulently anti-Semitic
letter, ostensibly criticizing the
inefficiency of several Jewish of-
ficials. The Movemiento Patria y
Libertad (Homeland and Free-
dom Movement), a neo-facist,
rightist group, made anti-Semitic
There has been a disturbing
tendency, Winter continued, "to
make Jews in public office
and. by extension, the Chilean
Jewish community the scape-
goats for Chile's economic and
political ills." There were approx-
imately 150 Jews, most of them
technicians and professionals, in
various positions in the Allende
government, he added.
Winter also attributed this
relatively new phenomenon of an
emerging anti-Semitism in Chile
to the fact that the Arab League,
which was permitted to open a
regional office for Latin America
in Santiago in 1972. had launched
a "vigorous and widespread anti-
Israel and anti-Jewish campaign,
which is believed to have in-
cluded acts of violence against
major Jewish institutions."
WINTER WARNED that "ap-j
parently, elements among those
who opposed the Allende admin-
istration have been making Jews
in public office and, by exten-
sion, the Chilean Jewish commu-
nity the scapegoats for Chile's
economic and political ills. Some
150 Jews, most of them technic-
ians and professionals, served in
various capacities in different
branches of the government. Ef-
forts to foment anti-Semitism
have also been carried on by
New Left groups hostile to Is-
rael, often in concert with the
Arab League.
"Since the Arab League was
permitted to establish a regional
office for Latin America in San-
tiago in 1972, it has carried on a ,
vigorous and widespread and
anti-Israel and anti-Jewish cam-
paign, which is believed to have
included acts of violence against
major Jewish institutions."
Habonim Condemns
Election Platform
Of Labor Party
Habonim of North America at its
31st national convention has voted
to condemn the Labor Party elec-
tion platform for the occupied ter-
ritories. The text of the resolu-
tion reads:
"Habonim condemns the Labor
Party election platform for the

Culture Shock Felt at Cornell University
SOMETHING resembling cul-
** ture shock has been reported
by a Jewish high school graduate
from a small town in California
in her first few months as a
freshman at Cornell University
in Ithaca, NY. For Merle Axel-
rad, the fact that there were
more Jews in her Cornell dormi-
tory than in all four grades of
her high school proved to be
a "definite shock to a girl from a
Reform temple in San Jose."
Mrs. Axelrad described her im-
pressions, many of them clearly
negative, of Jewish life in a col-
lege community swarming with
Jewish students, in the Jewish
Community Nous, the official
publication of the Jewish I-Yd-r.i-
i n of San Joso. a town with a
Jewish population <>f 7,000. She
offered 10 cm-tic comni
about "Jewish American Prin-
ces >" and 'Now York Jews,"
who let her know they considered
them Jews."
SHE R1PORTED she had im
mediately become aware of the
huge Jewish student population
when she arrived at Cornell, not
through Hillel. or a local syna
gogue "or any other type of Jew
ish establishment"' but simply "b>
looking around myself."
She stressed that she did not
mean to give the impression that
her fellow students '"looked Jew
ish'" but rather that "it was
through the Stars of David and
the Chais that seemed to be hang
ing around the necks of every-
one I saw."'
She commented that she felt
that she had seen "more Jewish
paraphernalia in my three
months at Cornell than I saw in
all my 18 years in San Jose, in-
cluding the jewelry parade at
temple and Sunday school."
Another "constant reminder-
was her Jewish roommate. She
wrote that considering that most
Jews living in Cornell dormi-
tories "have Jewish roommates
not on request, this is in itself
an interesting coindicence.' Her
roommate, moreover, was one
"who keeps kosher at home in
Boston and who has been a coun
selor at a Jewish summer camp
for three years "
HER SECOND "Jewish experi-
ence." after the novelty of the
omnipresent Stars of David and
Chai pins wore off. occurred
about five days before Rosh Ha
shona. She had decided to sur-
prise her roommate by bringing
bread and honey with which both
could welcome the New Year Rut
when she went to the local groc-
ery store. ~he found the >t
rally clean.1 out"
of honey by other Jewish stu-
dents, a similar experience oc-
curred In connection with Chan-
lie bou lit bag
of chocolate "Chanuka celt'' avail-
able in Ithaca.
Mrs. Axelrad also reported that
during the time between the two
holidays she gradually learned to
recognize and know 'a breed of
Jews separate and distinct from
those 1 had known in San Jose,"
a group she said had been la-
beled ""New York Jews." She ex-
plained that the quotation marks
were "very important" and that,
by that description, she meant
that most of the New York Jews
seemed to be "of the Conserva-
tive sect,*' all very' active in syn
agogue youth groups at home
and all who had "either lived on
a kibbutz for a summer or plan
ned to do so."
She said she had gained the im-
pression that for such "New York
Jews" a pilgrimage to Israel "is
almost a requirement." She also
remarked that such Jews were
concerned about material things.
adding that "more than once 1
was quoted prices of Chanuka
gifts, usually accompanied by the
statement but money isn't im-
portant to me.'"
She described the "Jewish
American Princesses" as prob-
ably the most interesting to ob-
serve" among the new Jewish
types she was meeting on the
campus. She said her dormitory
floor was "blessed with two in
this category."
SHE SAID the two were close
friends and often attended Sab
bath dinner at the campus Jew
i-,h Co-op together. "Always
dreaeed fashionably no worn

their families large amounts of

Concluded Mrs. Axel

She also said that despite the
very different Jewish cultural
religious atmosphere in which
she was involved in Cornell her
own beliefs had not changed
and. "if anything, they are more
finn|y rooted." Bhe described
her personal Jewish outlook as
comprising "a form of humanism
included in which are various
'Jewish traditions." specifically
the importance of education and
family. After talking to a Jew
of my own age. many of whom
consider themselves to be "better

Crowds Mill Among the Exhibits

En Masse on Their
Third Annual Art Fair
^he third annual Artists' Fair in

The .Artists' Fair, modest, with-
out boisterous features, has a
pleasant atmosphere. Yitzhak Ya-
acobi. the director of the East
Jerusalem Development Com-
pany, who is in charge of the fair,
says that the quiet atmosphere
was intentional, both because of
lack of space in Hutzot Hayotzer
for a fair of larger dimensions
and because of the smallness of
the budget.
A sum to;;: al IL 120,000 (un-
der $30,000) was invested in the
enterprise by the Jerusalem mu-
nicipality, the East Jerusalem De-
velopment Company, and the Min
istry of Tourism, in equal parts.

the confines of Hutzot Hayotzer.

THE PROBLEM of housing is
complicated by the fact that
immigrants from Russia often
in rive with definite opinions
about where in Israel they wish
to settlebased on information
from relatives or friends (often
the only information they have
acquired beforehand).
Georgians especially want to
live within their own commu-
nities. Demands for immigrant
housing is now almost equalled
by demands for housing from
young Israeli couples. Official
policy aims at directing the de-
mand away from the center of
the country, where most new-
comers would prefer to settle.

JEWLSH students are less
likely than their elders to leave
Russia because of anti-Semitism
or lack of opportunity, but come
to Israel for positive reasons: to
live fully as Jews, and to re-
main together with their fam-
ilies. Most of them receive the
highest available grant from the
Students' uepanment of the
Ministry of Absorption.
They learn Hebrew in pre-
academic classes, but not Eng-

tial for their university studies.

social ties, but not to establish
their absorption may be said to
be successful: the percentage of
those leaving Israel is minimal,
and most of their problems are
such that time itself helps to
solve them. On the whole, the

dential election. For many de-
cades, U.S. Jewry had voted over-
whelmingly for the Democratic
party but preelection indications
this time indicated a considerable
shift towards the Republicans.
Most consciously this was con-
nected with the unswervingly
solid support for Israel afforded
by President Nixon and his re-
gime (and certain expressions of
appreciation by Israelis in this
sensitive period evoked accusa-
tions of interference by Israelis
in internal American politics).
But the evidence of increased
Jewish support for Republicans
was also traced to deeper causes

Four Names for Rosh Hashona
A I.I. THE four major Jewish
festivals bear more than one
talmudie name, which gives
them greater significance than
they would otherwise have The
great eight-day holiday of Pass-
over, in preparation for which
our Orthodox mothers or grand-
mothers used to work so hard
for a whole month cleaning and
scrubbing, is not only called in
Hebrew "Hag-ha-Pesaeh"
"the holiday of the passing over"
but also "Hag-ha-Matzoh"
"the holiday when only matzoh
and no bread can be eaten"
and "Hag-ha-Aviv" "the fes-
tival of spring.
SEVEN weeks later comes the
"Feast of Weeks." Shavuot
whose other name is "Hag-ha
Bikurim," "the festival of the
offering of first fruits." and
this argicultural significance of
the holiday is even more em-
phasized in the Talmud than
the commemoration of "Matan
Torah," the giving of the law
by God to Moses on Mt. Sinai.
Sukkot is known as the week
when Jews eat in booths to com-
memorate their wanderings
through the desert, but it too
has an argicultural name
"Hag-ha-Asif" harvest festi-
The fourth major Jewish holi-
day, Rosh Hashona (Yom Kip
pur can hardly be classed as a
holiday, since it is a day of
fasting), has four different
names to its credit. "Rosh Ha-
shona" means literally "head of
the year," or as we say nowa-
days, New Year's Day. It is
celebrated for two days even
in Israel, where all other holi-
days are only celebrated for
one day, because in ancient
times it was not exactly known
when the moon came out to
start the new month, the first
day of the month of Tishri.
Rosh Hashona is a blend of
ber reflection on the sins of the
past year and of joyous resolve
to do better in the year ahead.
So on these two days one eats
the traditional holiday meals
and goes to "tashlich." to a
river bank to shake off one's
Another name for Rosh Ha-
shona is "Yom Teru'ah." the
Day of Blowing the Ram's Horn,
or Shofar, because on the first
day of the holiday (unless the
first day falls on a Saturday),
tlh> Shofar is blown in all syna-
gogues for a whole month bo-
fore Rosh Hashona, beginning
with the fi:-t da) of Flul. which
starts the ssm h I penitential
period. During th" week before
Rosh Hashona, while it Is still
dark and before the morning
prayers begin, penitenial pray-
ers (Selichoth) arc recited and
the Shofar is blown.
THE THIRD and fourth names
of Rosh Hashona can be re-
garded as linked together, and
their significance is usually held
to be greater than that of the
other two names These are the
names "Yom Hazikkaibn"
"The Day of Remembrance"
"Yom Hadia" "The Day of
Judgment." which latter name
is also applied to Yom Kippur.
On Rosh Hashona, which is tra-
ditionally regarded as the day
of the creation of the world.
God remembers all His crea-
tures and determines the lot of
human beings during the com
ing year. On that day He passes
judgment on all persons who
are thus summoned to earnest

stock-taking," remembrance on
their own part, one might say

On Rosh Hashona. it is be-
lieved, the names of the good
feasting and atonement, of so-
for good and for life, while
those of the bad are blotted
out forthwith from the book of
life. However, the decision of
God as regards those who are
in-between, neither good sjor
bad, is reserved until Yom Kip-
pur. the Day of Atonement, on
which day the lot and fate of
each are determined in accord-
ance with each one's repentance.
ONCE upon a time, among the
Jews in the pre-Exilic period,
Rosh Hashona too had an agri-
cultural significance, but that
has long since been lost. In the
days before the Babylonian ex-
ile, the new year began in the
fall, since the old harvest year
concluded at that time, and the
new one began. During the Ba-
bylonian exile, the Jews adopted
from the Babylonians, in addi-
tion to the new year on the
first of Tishri the present-
day Rosh Hashona the new
year occurring at the start of
the syring month of Nissan, that
is. two weeks before Passover.
Nevertheless, the celebration
of the new year took place in
the autumn in accordance with
the old chronology. The trans-
ference of the celebration of the
new year to the First of Tishri
and the ascription of an aug-
ment*! solemnity and sacred-
ness to that day may have been
due in patl to the teinembrance
that II was on the First of
Tishri that the Jews who had
returned from the Babylonian
exile and brought their first of-
fering on the newly erected

ambassador to France said here
that that country is not likely to
change its pro-Arab policy in the
Middle East although French au-

their soil and are protecting all
Israeli institutions in France.
Ambassador Ashe Ben Nathan,
who is presently in Israel, made
his remarks in an army radio sta-

open cooperation between the po-

because of France's reluctance to

w York's Lower East Side Experiencing a Commercial Renaissance
tv RI.- V A t o _
y^HKN THE new immigrants first came to
these shores at the turn of the century and
headed for the Lower East Side, they were told,
among other things, "America is a land of busi-
ness. '
Seventy or so odd years later, there is a new
business on the Lower East Side. And the people
who buy the product are also newcomers to the
"Goldene Medina."
The product is appliances with 220 volts in
stead of the 119 that we use in the U.S. And
who are the ones that would want to buy appli
anc.^ with 220 voltage? Why Indians from India
and Israelis from Israel. In those two nations,
22o voltage is used.
AND SO. the East Side which is still one
of the most cosmopolitan markets in the world;
which still attracts peoples of all nationalities,
races and religions from Puerto Ricans to
Blacks to Orthodox Jews to Chinese now has
drawn Israelis and Indians into its web.
Many Americans going on aliyah also buy
their appliances on the East Side.
But now on the streets of the Lower East
Side, on streets named Hester, Essex and Ludlow
and Canal, one can see dark-skinned Indians,
their women dressed in long saris, buying ra-
dios, television sets, tape recorders, hi-fis, blend-
er*, toasters, mixers, can openers, vaceum clean-
en, air conditioners, refrigerators, dish washers,
washing machines, and dryers, cameras, projec-
tors all in 220 so that they can take them back
to India and just plug them in.
Israelis, too. even before they came to the
I' S, heard for example, the names of Fishman
and Lewi, both of whom have separate stores on
the East Side.
When asked asked the difference between
Fishman's and Lewi's Mordecai Fishman an-
swered. "What's the difference between Macy's
and Gimbels'"
THERE ARE other stores, dealing with elec-
trical appliances and Israelis visit all of them.
Fishman proudly displays a copy of a check
on his counter for $187 17. from the Government
that former Israel Ambassador to the U.S. Yitz-
hak Rabin purchased a television set on the East
Side, too
Which store do the Israelis go to Some-
times, they sty, they go to the store which is
least crowded.
Israelis flock to the Fast Side not only for
trie blenders and tape recorders, but for Israeli
products and delicacies.
* For any Jew interested in appetizers and
piHles and fish and kosher meat, the East Side
is a shoppers' paradise Moreover, the Lower East
Side ha* remained the center for Jewish religious
articles, from Israeli napkin holders, candle-
labras for Shabbat, kiddush cups to plaques
which have Hebrew letters spelling Shalom."
Trie Israelis also come from far distances to
do their shopping, as do the Indians. It is word
of mouth that brings them and many sav they
heard about the Lower East Side when they
wire in Bombay, just as the Israelis say they
heard about it when they were in Tel Aviv.
INDIANS ALSO need the appliances with
220 voltace. although one can use a transformer
with a 110 volt appliance, but as one Israeli put
it. "it is not comfortable to use transformers on
every appliance."
The Indians who now flock to the East Side
come for cameras and other appliances. For
them, as Ashok Phansey of Bombay told this
writer, "it is also a social occasion." An Indian
who lives in Boston often meets an old friend
from his native city on the Lower East Side. The
friend might now be living in Pittsburgh, but
veryone meets on the East Side and often one
sees large grov-ps of Indians talking and exchang-
ing memories all this in front of an appliance
store, no less.
Most of the discount stores on Essex and
Canal Street are owned by Jews. But the Indians,
too, want to get into the act and some Indians
have opened up a store called, "India Discount
Center" on Ludlow Street. Still, people sh'vp
for bargains and not nationality and many In-
dians buy from Jews and probably Jews buy
from the Indians.
And everyone buys in other types of stores
on the Lower East Side. For instance, many, in
eluding the Chinese from nearby Chinatown,
shop for material to make dresses and skirts and
blouses and gowns.
MANY ORTHODOX Jews buy their Pass-
over goods on the East Side, for as one put it,
i know if I buy on the East Side, it's kosher."
Before the Passover holidays, many families
from as far away as Pennsylvania and Massa-
chusetts buy their goods for Passover on the
East Side, if they can find a parking space, foi
one drawback of the area, especially on Sundays.
is the difficulty in parking.
There is still a large Jewish community on
the East Side, but interestingly most of the mer
chants live outside the area. But all merchants,
faced with rising crime in the city, cooperate
even more. Leibel Bistritzky of Essex Street, a
leading mercnant on tne East Side, and one of
the most personable, says that there is a bond
of cooperation between all merchants.
It is reported that some stores have even
set up aiarm systems hooked up to the store
next Jovr. so that the owner of one store can
alert his neighbor to an attempted holdup with
out the hold up man knowing it. Besides, many
proud East Siders say it is safer on the East Side
than on the Grand Concourse.
NOT ALL stores on the Ix>wor East Side, of
course, are food and appliance stores. There are
many famous Jewish book and publishing stores
which also sell records from Israel. You can
buy Hageadahs for Passover for anywhere from
15 cents to S15. And there are Passover greet-
ing cards and ceremonial plates and seder plates
and wine cups, and matzoh covers. For religious
goods, the East Side still holds reign.
And of course, yarmulkes. Why in fact on
Essex Street near Grand Street, there are little
shops and stores where merchants have set up
yarmulke factories and one can even purchase
them in large numbers for a bar mitzvah and
All this, of course, takes place on Sunday,
the busiest shopping day of the week. This is a
big reason why the East Side attracts: It is ?
Sunday market. With few exceptions, the Lower
Fast Side is generally closed on Saturday, the
Sabbath, and open on Sundav The whole family
shops on Sunday.
In these days of runaway inflation prices
on the Lower East Side are generally lower than
in supermarkets in Long Island or Westcher.
Merchants cite two factors for lower prices on
food items and religious goods: Lower overhead.
nnt< are cheaper: and the desire 'o move mer-
chandise. Of course, you have to know how to
shop and sometimes bargain, especially in the
pushcart sei lions on the streets north of Delancy,
such as Orchard Street.
THE LOWER East Side is almost an inter
national bazaar, friendly, but very crowded and
there is a lot of sharp wit that passes between
buyer and seller. Many of the Jewish merchants
in the area have hired Spanish-speaking sales-
men to talk to the many Puerto Rican customers
who also come to the Lower East Side for shop-
ping, especially on Sunday.
Yes. the Lower East Side was once the gate-
way to America for millions. Today, it is certainly
not the same Jewish neighborhood it once was.
But it is still a wonderful Jewish market place.

native Riga, a Jewish source said.
Arkady A. Schpilberg. 35. will
probably be sentenced to 15 days
in prison for petty hooliganism
for his protest outside the head-
quarters of the Communist

source said.
Schpilberg, who carried a sign
outside the building reading "Let

was in a labor camp when his
family obtained exit visas two
I months ago. He was serving a
three-year sentence for allegedly
taking part in a hijack plot by a
group of Leningrad Jews in 1970.
He has failed so far in attempts
to get a visa to join his family.
J His wife told newsmen in Tel
j Aviv recently her husband ap-
; parently was being denied per-
mission to leave because he re-
fused to plead guilty at the trial.

urged President Nixon and Con-
gress to "initiate a crash program
for the development of all alter-
nate sources of domestic energy to
forestall the possibility that the I
Arab nations may use the United
States' dependence on Middle East
oil as a lever to influence U.S.
policy in the Mideast."
This was one of several resolu-
tions adopted at the ZOA's 76th
national convention here last week-
end. Bernard S. White, of Wash-
ington. DC, chairman of the con-
vention's resolution committee, said
that certain actions relating to
this country's "growing energy cri
sis could ultimately have an ad
verse effect on the United States'
traditional support of Israel."
HE SAID these included 'long-
term supply arrangements certain
U.St firms am making or eomtem-
plating to increase America's reli-
ance on Middle East oil," the en-
couragement a number of govern
merit officials are giving some Arab
nations "to invest heavily their
growing oil revenues in strategic-
ally important US. industries,"
and the exploitation by such com-
panies as Standard Oil of California
and Mobil Oil Corp. of temporary
domestic oil shortages to "agitate
for a shift in American Middle East
policy that would be submissive to I

In other policy actions, the ZOA
expressed support of U.S. efforts
to combat international terrorism,
and criticized the UN for its fail
ure to deal effectively with this

veto power in the UN when unjust
measures are directed against Is- {
rael: condemned the continued ha-',

most directly involved, we are
prepared to use our influence to
generate a spirit of accommoda-
tion and to encourage the parties
toward practical progress."
DR. KISSINGER, in his first
speech to the UN General Assem-
bly since taking office as Secre-
tary' of State, also pledged that "we
will never abandon our allies and
our friends" and that the U.S. will
work for peace "through the United
Nations as well as through bilat-
eral relationships."
Dr. Kissinger's maiden UN
| speech, which opened the UN's an-
nual debate on world affairs, was
couched largely in generalities
about the state of the world, the
spirit of US foreign policy and its
attitude toward the UN.
He reaffirmed the importance t
that the U.S. attaches "to the
values and ideals of the UN," but
observed that nonetheless the
American people sometimes were !
disappointed because the UN "has
not been more successful in trans-
lating the hope for universal peace
into concrete accomplishments."
At another point, however, he
said, with regard to solutions of
major world problems that "we!
start from a bedrock of solid
progress." In that connection, he
mentioned amon: other accom-
plishments that "there is a cease-
fire in the Middle East."
