Second Annual Leadership Institute Scheduled For Nov. 8
One People, One Destiny.
This phrase describes where
the Jewish people have been
and where they are going. Too
often, the Tampa Jewish com-
munity forgets that it is an en-
tity striving for excellence and
unity. People set priorities and
join organizations and/or con-
gregations based on personal
ideological commitments.
Nevertheless, the Tampa
Rodeph Sholom First
Annual Celebrity Roast!
"Sammy was eight or nine,
and one day I got a phone call
from the school principal who
said that Sammy had thrown
another boy into a garbage
can," said Mama Bobo about
her youngest son. "When I
talked to Sammy, I found that
the other boy had insulted
Sammy's being Jewish. In
Macon, Georgia, in those days,
that was reason enough for a
fight, so the principal didn't
punish Sammy and neither did
A 'Hate
A "hate crimes" bill that
would impose federal criminal
penalties for damage to
religious property and injury
to persons in the free exercise
of their religious beliefs was
approved by the house on a
voice vote Monday.
The bill, introduced by Rep.
Dan Glickman (D., Kan.), pro-
vides for fines up to $250,000
and/or imprisonment for
anyone who causes $10,000 or
more damage to a church,
synagogue, religious cemetery
or other religious real property
or causes serious bodily injury
to a person trying to exercise
his religious beliefs.
The House passed a similar
bill introduced by Glickman

I," Mama continued.
Sammy Bobo has continued
his devotion to Judaism and
will be honored by Congrega-
tion Rodeph Sholom at a din-
ner dance to be held on Satur-
day, Oct. 24, at the Tampa Air-
port Marriott Hotel at 7:30
One of seven children, Sam-
my was born in Macon, and
was a Bar Mitzvah at Knesset
Israel, the little wooden shul
on Central Avenue, soon after
the family moved to Tampa.
Rabbi Wernick was the Rabbi
and had a son Sammy's age, so
Rabbi Wernick had a great in-
fluence in Sammy's life when
Sammy's father died the year
after the Bar Mitzvah. He met
his wife, Rieva, current
Sisterhood" president, at a
Jewish Singles party in
Jacksonville and they were
engaged three months later.
Sam's dedication to Judaism
and Rodeph Sholom has been
almost a legend. His election
as president of Rodeph Sholom
in 1978 was no surprise. He's
been a president of the Men's
Club, a very active member of
Morning Conductors' Group,
the Ritual Committee, and the
Board of Directors.
The entire Bobo family's
generosity to the Shul is well
known. Perhaps most famous,
is Mama's baklava and other
delicacies. Maybe this has
something to do with Sammy's
fame. Mama's ideas of family
loyalty and devotion to
Judaism certainly have in-
fluenced Sammy and been an
inspiration to all.
Jewish community is a people
with a shared culture, who has
one destiny, survival. Sunday,
Nov. 8, Rabbi Reuven
Kimelman, Yale Scholar will
meet with the leadership of the
Federation, the Jewish Com-
munity Center, Jewish Family
Services, the Hillel Day School
and area synagogues to
discuss how it can truly strive
towards becoming one
cohesive entity. The program
will be held at the Guest
Quarters Hotel, beginning at 9
"The theme of this year's In-
stitute is Commitment and
Community Building," accor-
ding to co-chairman, Sandy
Mahr. "Rabbi Kimelman cer-
tainly has the charisma, per-
sonality and intelligence to
challenge Tampa's leadership
to reach for the best it can be,"
Mahr added. "He really has
the ability to stimulate one's
desire to explore Ids or her
personal values and
Rabbi Kimelman, scholar-in-
residence for the Second An-
nual Leadership Institute was
recently recognized by Mo-
ment Magazine as one of the
Jews to watch in the 1980's. In
addition to being the author of
numerous publications, in-
cluding, "Tzedakkah and Us,"
Kimelman teaches Talmud at
Brandeis University.
"This year's institute, spon-
sored by the Tampa Jewish
Federation, is designed to give
its leadership the tools to
achieve excellence," com-
mented Joyce Swarzman, co-
chairman of the program.
"Last year, we held our first
seminar and we strove to
achieve greater agency
cooperation and communica-
tion. We made positive in-
roads," added Swarzman,
"this year, we look forward to
also communicating with the
synagogue leadership, for we
recognize that Jewish com-
munal life reflects both
religious and secular values."

Right-Wing Extremists Convicted Of IRS Threats
Five members of a rightwing
tax-protest group with links to
a violently anti-Semitic
organization were convicted in
Las Vegas of threatening the
lives of agents of the Internal
Revenue Service and a Nevada
state judge.
The five are members of the
Committee of the States, a
group affiliated with the Chris-
tian Identity movement, which
espouses the belief that the
Jews are the children of Satan
and which calls the United
States government "ZOG" -
"Zionist-Occupied Govern-
ment." The Committee was
formed in 1984 in Mariposa,
Convictions in Federal
District Court in Las Vegas
were meted out to Rev.
William Potter Gale, who
heads the Ministry of Christ
Church in Mariposa and is
founder of the Identity move-
ment; Fortunate Parrino, an
assistant at the church;
Richard Van Hazel of Arizona;
and Patrick McCray and his
brother George McCray, of
Nevada. A sixth defendant,
Gary Dolfin of Nevada, plead-
ed guilty to lesser charges
after the trial began.
In addition, two others nam-
ed in the indictment, Angelo
Stefanelli and Susan Kieffer of
Nevada, pleaded guilty to
reduced charges and agreed to
cooperate with the
Those convicted face possi-
ble maximum sentences of 34
years' imprisonment and fines
of $250,000, according to assis-
tant U.S. prosecuting attorney
Richard Pocker.
The trial was monitored by
the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith in Los Angeles,
which has furnished informa-
tion on the case to law enforce-
ment agencies throughout the
country. Betsy Rosen thai,
ADL Western states civil
rights director, called the ver-
dict a "warning to extremists
that the American people will
not tolerate their threats of
physical harm to our officials
and government institutions."
The ADL had obtained
documents from the Commit-
tee's first meeting, among
which was a statement warn-
ing that any attempt to in-
terfere with the group by any
person or government agency
would "result in the death
penalty being imposed upon

For many years, the ADL
has been monitoring Gale, who
has a solidly racist, anti-
Semitic resume. According to
Rosenthal, it was Gale who

What a Golden Opportunity to celebrate ... An an-
niversary party is being held tomorrow night for a very
special couple. Louis and Freda Buchman are celebrating
their fiftieth wedding anniversary! The party honoring
them will be at Pal ma Ceia Golf and Country Club. It will be

For all yon sweetie-pies Tomorrow, October 17, is
the "Sweetest Day." This was started by a candy shoppe
owner in Cleveland, Ohio, many years ago as a mini Valen-
tine's Day, and in honor of this, Cydnei and Orson Skorr
are creating a Happening. Cydney and Orson are
celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary on the
"Sweetest Day" and since they are both notaries, they plan
on spending "their" day marrying others. Couples may
also renew their vows. Cydney reports that the response
has been good and that perhaps they could end up marrying
the most people in one day in Tampa! For further informa-
tion, please call Skorr Entertainment. How sweet it is!

How Hillel Got Its Sukkah
What do you get when you
take 10 men, a beautiful Sun-
day afternoon and the NFL
Football strike? A minyon?
Not quite ... a Sukkah?
The motivating factor that
led to this activity was a phone
call by Hillel Headmaster
Joachim Scharf to Dr. Robert
Goldstein informing him that,
"It was time for the Sukkah to
be built!"
It took Dr. Goldstein only
nine phone calls to round up
the team that would coor-
dinate, oversee and build the
timely project. Those included
were: Michael Eisenstaedt,
Allen Feldman, Elliott Green-
baum, Steve Marcus, Rick
Oberne, Yehoshua Peled,
Michael Ross, Michael Michael
and Sidney Schuster.
1 p.m. Sunday afternoon, ra-
diant sunshine tempered by a
gentle breeze, seemed to be
ideal conditions for the
The wood and mesh had
been stored on the roof of the
school since last Sukkot and all
the men provided were some
screws, muscle, and most of all
their time.
To anyone unfamiliar... the
Sukkah is a booth that the
Jews were commanded to live
in for seven days in remem-
brance of the Israelites who
resided in booths during their
exodus from Egypt. Itjmay be
made of any material land at
least 10, but no more than 20
cubits high; the roof must be
covered with boughs, through
which the stars are visible, ac-
cording to the Dictionary of
Jewish Religion.
"Unfortunately no one
remembered how to build the

Sukkah. Mike Eisenstaedt had
gone over some specifications
and had some experience
through Congregation Kol
Ami. We essentially had to
reinvent and design the struc-
ture," remarked Goldstein.
"Basically we nailed some
2'x4's together and attached
mesh with a staple gun. It
sounds easy, but I wonder why
it took us until 5 p.m?" he
Coincidentally, Sunday was
Family Fun Day at the JCC
and cold drinks were provided
to the Sukkah workers!
The structure is standing
next to the school building and
will be decorated by the
children with fruits,

last year. But David Brody,
Washington representative of
the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith who worked
closely with the Congrega-
tional committees that drafted
the legislation, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that
several changes were made.
He said the earlier bill made
any damage to a religious pro-
perty a federal offense. But it
was decided that the federal
government should only be
brought in for a major offense
causing at least $10,000 in

damages, rather than desecra-
tions like daubing a swastika
on synagogues which can be
handled by local authorities.
The current bill also makes it a
federal crime to use a vehicle
that could be used in interstate
commerce, for commission of
hate acts whether or not it
crosses a state line, Brodv
said. He said he plans to work
with Sen. Howard Metzen-
baum (D., Ohio), who is
scheduled to introduce a "hate
crimes" bill in the Senate, in
an effort to ensure his pro-
posal would coincide with the
bill adopted by the House.
Up to now, religiously-
motivated violence was not
subject to federal prosecution
except in the cases of arson or
where explosives were used.
The defacing of property,
which is one of the most com-
mon acts against synagogues
and black churches, was not a
federal crime.

In addition, Gale was long
viewed as a leader of the Posse
Comitatus, an organization of
loosely affiliated bands of arm-
ed vigilantes. The Posse gain-
ed national recognition in 1983
when one of its members, Gor-
don Kahl, was indicted for kill-
ing two U.S. marshalls and
later killed himself in a shoot-
out with police in Arkansas.
Gale, as a Posse evangelist,
supplied tapes for broadcast to
radio station KTTL-FM in
Dodge City, Kansas, in 1983.
He, along with James
Wickstrom, another Posse
evangelist, also spoke at at
least one meeting of local
farmers stricken by the in-
tense farm crisis and prone to
scape-goating Jews and others
in a conspiracy against them.
In his broadcasts, Gale
espoused violence while invok-
ing God's name, and urged the
collection of dossiers on
"every damn Jew rabbi in this
land, and every Anti-
Defamation League leader or
JDL leader in this land." He is
alleged to hold paramilitary
training operations, Rosenthal
said, adding that Gale had
written training manuals for
the Posse. She said he is
reportedly in poor health.
An assistant to prosecuting
attorney Pocker said that Gale
is currently free on bail,
although Rosenthal said the
prosecution had argued that
he, and the others, were
dangerous and should be
Trials are still pending for
other affiliates of the Identity
movement, including 11 na-
tionwide leaders of the Aryan
Nations, who were indicted on
charges of sedition by a federal
grand jury in Fort Smith,
Arkansas, about a half year
ago and who are scheduled to
stand trial in federal court
there next year.
Indicted for sedition was
Robert Miles, a leader of the
Aryan Nations and also involv-
ed in other neo-Nazi activities.
Miles, who calls himself a
minister, was originally con-
victed of burning school buses
during integration of schools
in Michigan in the 1960s, for
which he served jail time.
Miles' trial is scheduled for
next year.
Other members of the Aryan
Nations were convicted in re-
cent months in TJucson,
Arizona, on charges of
counterfeiting and attempting
to pass counterfeit notes at a
state fair in Spokane,
Washington. Trials were
scheduled last week for Ed
Hawley and David Dorr, im-
plicated in the bombings of

We Are The Future9
Flashback To Betar Summer
Program To Poland And Israel
A group of 25 youngsters, 16
of them are from Jacksonville,
have just returned from an un-
forgettable adventure: "From
Tragedy to Triumph," the
Jacksonville Jewish Federa-
tion Teen Experience in
Poland and Israel. The six
week program was conducted
in conjunction with the Betar
Youth Organization, a Zionist
youth movement founded by
Zev Jabotinsky in 1923.
By the time the group of
Betar from Florida landed
back in the U.S.A., it had
travelled over 15,000 miles.
From the seemingly endless
hay fields of Poland and the
drab gray dreariness of War-
saw to Jerusalem's sparkling
brilliance, the vistas that
presented themselves through
a succession of tour bus win-
dows could not have been more
After a long journey to War-
saw, the group began its visit
to Poland at the Aushwitz-
Birkenau death camp complex
near Cracow. Expecting to be
confronted with the full horror
of the German death machine,
participants were unprepared
for what they witnessed there,
at Maidanek the following day,
and amidst the remains of the
Warsaw Ghetto later in the
week. Aushwitz had become a
museum, Birkenau's barracks
were getting new roofing, and
the Warsaw Ghetto had been
transformed into a park.
"It is very difficult to get a
true sense of what happened in
those places, near cafeterias
and booths selling picture post
cards, with groups of visiting
Poles extolling the heroism of
the Polish people (with little, if
any, mention of the Jewish
dimension of the tragedy),"
said participant Rachel
It was not until Treblinka
that the group was moved by
what they saw. Treblinka, a
concentration camp designed
solely for the extermination of
Jews, is located in the middle
of a forest. It was totally
destroyed by the Germans in
1943 in order to eliminate all
traces of their heinous deeds.
Today all that one can see
are stark stone markers listing
the names of Jewish com-
munities and families that
nished. The personal impact
of the Holocaust was
graphically illustrated when
one of Jacksonvilles teens,
David Bielski, found the name
of his grandmother (who even-
tually escaped from Treblinka)
on one of the stone markers.
In Poland our teens found a
country astoundingly
backward-economically, social-
ly and politically. Surrounded
by peasants working the land
by hand, piling interminable
supplies of hay onto
horsedrawn wagons, one
senses that he has taken a
500-year leap backward into
The fact that Poland is a
Communist country was
always apparent. No one, not
even the few Jews that re-
main, can be trusted-anyone
can be a government informer.
History is completely re-
written, erasing 1,000 years of
Jewish culture and presence.
Nearly 3,000,000 Polish Jews
were killed during World War
II. This fact is hardly mention-
ed. The unique Jewish dimen-
sion of the Holocaust is sub-
sumed amidst a host of ethnic
Poland is a country whose
tourism is based on death and
destruction. Jewish groups of
various ages, from different
parts of the world, converge
on the country to see the re-
mains of the once vibrant
Jewish community and the
mechanism of evil that
destroyed it.
For many, the climax of the
trip in Poland was Shabbat in
Warsaw. The group stayed at
the Europejski Hotel-Gestapo
headquarters during World
War II. As "Shema Yisrael"
and "Ani Ma'amin" echoed
through the halls where Ger-
man boots once strode, neither
the irony of the group's
presence nor faith in the
ultimate victory of the Jewish
people could have been more
Friday evening, par-
ticipants, along with a group of
60 visiting Jewish teens from
Israel and U.S., walked
through the streets of
downtown Warsaw to the
city's only functioning
synagogue. Said Shari
Goldschmidt, "Walking
together to Shabbat services
Friday night made the trip
really special." Nonetheless,
the stares elicited these
/appot-wearing teens left no
doubt in anyone's mind that
anti-Semitism is alive and well
in Poland.
Afterwards, the strains of
Friday night Kiddush and
Shabbat zemirot (Sabbath
songs) filled the former SS of-
ficer's dining room as Polish
waiters stared open-mouthed.
Shabbat morning the
synagogue was filled with a
congregation as diverse as the
people of Israel itself:
teenagers from throughout the
U.S., adults from Chicago and
Israel and the few remaining
elderly Jews of Warsaw (the
city's total Jewish population
is estimated at no more than
600). As each group interacted
with one another, the at-
mosphere became electric.
When the service ended with

Amos Doron the ISRAELI Betar Shaliach conducting a
Memorial Ceremony at Berkenaw-Death Camp. The ISRAEL
Flag is displayed .on the destroyed Crematorium, (see page
Flash Back on a Betar tour to Poland and ISRAEL)
in Poland. Was it worth the ar-
duous journey? Beyond any
doubt, all agreed. No partici-
pant will ever again hear those
infamous names-Aushwitz,
Maidanek, Treblinka-without
having an indelible picture in
his mind's eye. How did the
teens feel? Angry said many
anger at the Germans and
Poles for what they did and for
their enduring anti-Semitism,
and angry at the world for let-
ting 6,000,000 Jews perish.
Would these teenagers want
their children to have the same
experience? Responses varied.
Randy Figur commented that,
"I'm sure that by the time my
children are old enough to
come here it will all be one big
museum, without any trace re-
maining of what happened to
the Jews. But that is as it
should be," he continued. "My
children will be able to learn
from books and films. They
will be living with a strong
Israel and not be obsessed with
the Holocaust."

Happy Seniors On The Move
Tom Reed, who has under-
written transportation to
grocery shopping for the
Seniors of Jewish Towers and
Mary Walker Apartments,
was recently paid a tribute by
his grateful riders.
A dinner was held in his
honor at Jewish Towers on
Sept. 14 and an honorary pla-
que noting that his transporta-
tion has been the Seniors' in-
dependence, was given by the
Jewish Towers Seniors.
Both communities presented
a gift to help defray Tom's ac-
cumulated van insurance cost.
Unfortunately, these costs
have caused Tom to relinquish
his personal seniors transpor-
tation bus and his grocery ser-
vice will be discontinued.
Charter trips, travel excur-
sions, and special outings will
still be provided by Tom. He
will always be a favorite "big

Preschool children what this is all about and you will hear
how much fun it is to celebrate the holidays at the JCC
Preschool. The children are busy building sukkahs, design-
ing flags and marching for Simchat Torah, adorning
Torahs, creating lulav puppets, enjoying holiday flannel
board stories and learning new songs. How could such little
ones be doing so much? We have the greatest staff and the
most wonderful children that's how!
I am pleased to announce a new class being offered at the
North Branch location. This mom and tot class, called
"Toddler Time," incorporates free play (blocks, toys,
manipulatives and a housekeeping corner), songs and
flngerplays, storytime, snacktime and gross motor ac-
tivities. These one hour sessions will meet on Tuesdays and
Thursdays (see the ad in the Centerpiece for ages, time and
fee details). This class will meet the needs of the children as
they grow and develop throughout the year. Come join the
fun and share special time with your child.

to be presented by Suzanne Persons. Please respond to the
article Parent-Education Program (in the Centerpiece) if
you have not done so already. We are excited to have
Suzanne speak with us again this year.
Bumper stickers have arrived! What a great way to show

Seuss. The exhibit runs from Sept. 20 to Nov. 8. Plan a day

Endowment Opportunities For JCC
The Tampa Orlando Pinellas Jewish Foundation, Inc. (TOP) is the endow-
ment arm of the three Federations. Its primary goals are to provide a finan-
cially secure future for all of the Jewish agencies, and to facilitate the process
of Jewish donors making gifts to the agencies in which they are interested.
The most important form of endowments are designated funds. These
funds may be named for a particular individual or family. The principal is
never touched, but rather is invested. In perpetuity, all interest income earn-
ed on an annual basis is sent to the particular agency for the purposes outlin-
ed in the fund agreement document. For example, there are currently two
funds that have been designated for the JCC.
A JCC Field of Interest Fund can be started with a minimum gift of
$2,500. Once established, additional gifts of any amount may be made to this
fund. Funds may also be organized for a specific purpose such as "senior
citizen programming," "JCC Camp Scholarships," or "Nursery School
Individuals may also start a personal advised philanthropic fund. It is call-
ed an "advised" fund because you and anyone else you may appoint may give
advice to your local distribution committee to make charitable distributions
in your fund's name based on your charitable interests. A few examples of
suggested distributions that have been made are: to supplement one's annual
federation support; to give additional support to one's synagogue/temple; to
support a community capital funds program; to support the local symphony,
medical research program or literally any non-profit organization that is af-
forded public charity status by the Internal Revenue Service.
You may add to this fund at any opportune time. The character of the in-
vestment, i.e. cash, real estate, securities and the like, you choose to make
will again reflect what will be most tax advantageous to you.
If you are interested in starting an endowment fund to benefit the JCC or
want to open an advised philanthropic fund, contact Mark Glickman, TOP ex-
ecutive director, at (305) 740-7332.

A Kids-Eye View Of The Holidays
Since we have been "inun-
I dated" with Jewish Holidays, I
[thought it would be interesting
I to hear how a child views
I them. We as adults have our
[own personal experience in the
I synagogue. While at services
I this RH, I observed many
[children beside their parents
I prompting me to wonder,
'What's on their mind?"
The poise, eloquence and
[maturity of the student at
JHillel has always impressed
I me. Sixth grader Jocelyn
I Lewis is certainly a shining ex-
lample of that caliber of stu-
Ident. I wasn't surprised at the
ease with which she responded
to my questions.
"Oh Rosh Hash an a and Yom
Kippur you think about all the
good and bad things that you
did all year, and how you can
be a better person. If you have
a fight with a friend, it's im-
portant to know why, not
make a big deal about it so it
doesn't happen again," said
Jocelyn peering out beneath
her bangs.
"I'm happy to live
throughout another year, but
its really a thoughtful serious
holiday where you think a lot.
not January 1 blasting
out all over type of new year!"
Cassin Interred In The Pantheon
I PARIS (JTA) The body of
Rene Cassin, a French Jew,
resistance fighter and 1968
Nobel Peace Laureate, was in-
terred in the Pantheon with
full military honors last week,
more than 10 years after his
I death.
His casket joins those of 364
I great names in French history,
I including Louis Pasteur and
I Jean Jaures, at ceremonies to
I be attended by President
I Francois Mitterrand, Prime
Minister Jacques Chirac, and
the presidents of the Senate
| and National Assembly.
Cassin served as Gen.
I Charles de Gaulle's wartime
Minister of Justice and later
I drew up the International
I Declaration of the Rights of
Man. He also headed the
Alliance Israelite Universelle.
He died in February 1976, at
the age of 89.
Former President Valery
Giscard d'Estaing signed the
decree for his reinterment at
the Pantheon. But it took a
decade before it was im-
plemented. The ceremony,
broadcast live on French
television, was attended by
3,000 guests from all over the
Cassin's body was received
with full military honors at the
Les Invalides Chapel where
Napoleon is buried and lay in
state until the afternoon
before the burial. The official
mourners were headed by
Defense Minister Andre
Giroud, who paid tribute to his
military career.
Jocelyn's favorite holiday is
Sukkot, and she looks forward
to decorating and picnicing in
the Sukkah. "It's nice to go to
services for a holiday other
than shabbat because there are
so many different traditions to
see," she concluded.
Third grader Howard For-
man has a totally different
perspective. He quickly in-
formed me that we're starting
with a clean slate. "I drain my
mind and start a new year by
asking forgiveness. When you
go to services, you pray. I like
the holiday, there's nothing to
dislike I'm not fasting yet,"
Howard explained.
He celebrated with his fami-
ly, lots of company and food!
"G-d has a book and writes
down who's going to have a
good or bad year. I hope and
pray for a good year!" I'm sure
you'll get it Howard!
Sara Ewen flashed a smile.
"I get tired after a while at
services. I try and listen to the
rabbi's sermon, but I don't
always understand what he's
talking about. This year it was
on the Holocaust," remarked
the 5th grader. "G-d has a big
book filled with names of
everyone in the world. The
cover just says "Book of Life."
If you're good, your written in
the "good portion of the
book," if not, you're in trouble.

It was Michael Wuliger, who
won my heart on the meaning
of the holidays. We talked
about the apples and honey,
listening to what the Rabbi
says and reading Hebrew
books. As the 2nd grader left
the room, a Kindergartener
stood in the hall crying.
Michael quickly walked over to
him, patted him on the
shoulder and asked, "Hey,
why are you crying. It's ok,
we'll help you." The little boy
stopped crying for a moment,
looked at Michael with a small
sigh of relief, and replied, "It's
time to go home." He's got my
vote in the Book of Life.

The program will consist of

The most important function
of the Chevra (Brotherhood) is
the preparation of the body for
burial in accordance with the
customs and traditions of
The shroud is made of fine
white linen without any hems
or knots. It consists of three
garments: shirt, pants, and an
overgarment with a girdle.
White stockings should be put
on the legs and a white cap on
the head. These shrouds of
linen were instituted during
the Talmudic period when
burials became expensive for
the poor. It emphasized the
equality of all human beings,
rich and poor alike. (Moed
Katan 27b, Yoreh Deah S52).
When the Shroud
(Tachrichim) is ready, the
body is carefully washed and
cleaned. A woman is attended
to only by women. No idle con-
versation is permitted in the
presence of the dead.
After the body has been
thoroughly washed with warm
water, it is placed in a standing
position and nine kabbim (24
quarts) of water are poured
over the corpse. This last
operation performed by the
Chevra constitutes the real
purification (Taharah). (Kitzur
Shulchan ArucK 198,2).
The male dead are also wrap-
ped ina Tallit whose fringes
(Tzitzit) are made invalid, sym-
bolically indicating that the
earthy requirements are no
longer incumbent upon him. In
the case of a female, an addi-
tional overgarment is place on
her shoulders. (Semachot 12).

The rabbinic ruling during
the past centuries have strong-
ly prohibited post-mortem ex-
aminations as a desecration of
the dead. However, allowances
have been made if there was a
reasonable hope that it would
contribute to saving the life of
another patient at hand. When
an autopsy has taken place, all
parts removed from the body
must be buried.
Burial may not be delayed
except for the honor of the
dead, such as awaiting the ar-
rival of very close relatives.
All mirrors should be
covered in the House of Mour-
ning. Many reasons are given
for this. Since a Minyan
(quorum of 10 people) usually
pray in the house, prayer is not
permitted in front of a mirror
which must therefore, be
covered. Another reason given
is: "Vanity of Vanities All Is
Vanity," mirrors are symbols
of vanity, and therefore, they
should be covered in the face
of the ultimate end of all
The burial is the interment
of the body in earth. After the
burial, if there are mourners
present, the Psalm U9 is
recited. If orphans are present
at the graveside, the following
special passages are recited in
their Kaddish.
"Yit-Ga-Dal, extolled and
hallowed be thy name of God in
the world which He is to create
anew, and to revive the dead
and raise them to everlasting
life. Then the worship of idols
will be eradicated, and the true
heavenly worship restored to
its dignity. Oh, may this hap-
pen in the lifetime of the whole
house of Israel speedily,
without delay, and say ye,
Those present at the funeral
form themselves into two
rows, between which the
mourners pass, they recite the
"May the Lord comfort you
together with all the mourners
of Zion and Jerusalem."
When returning from a
burial, it is customary for a
few people to pluck a few
blades of grass and throw
them over their shoulders
while reciting:
"He remembereth that we
are dust. Even as this grass
grows, dies and grows again,
even so the Dead shall resur-
rected again."
Rabbi Elazer said, "All who
are humble in this life shall be
resurrected, for it is written,
"Awake And Sing Ye That
Dwell In The Dust." (Isaiah
26:19). It does not state, that
lie in the dust, but that dwell in
the dust, we infer this to mean,
he who dwelled in the dust
(was humble) during life shall
be resurrected.
All leaving the cemetery
must wash their hands. The
hands should not be dried with
a towel or any other cloth.
(Yoreh Deah S76)
The laws concerning our
dead could fill many, many
books. When in doubt, ask
your rabbi. My purpose was to
write only about some of the
duties of the Chevra Kaddisha.
"May the Lord destroy
death forever. He will wipe
away tears from all faces, and
He will remove from all the
earth the rebuke of His people;
for God hath spoken it. He who
maketh peace in His high
places for us and for all Israel;
and say Amen."
