Appeals Court
Sustains Ban
on Mixed Seatin

NEW ORLEANS, (JTA) —
The Orleans Paris Court of Ap-
peals unanimously sustained an
injunction banning the officers
and directors of Congregation
Chevra Thilim from introduc-
ing family seating in the syna-
gogue.
The injunction was issued by
the late. Judge Frank J. Stich
after a lengthy hearing. in 1957
Which- attracted world .- Wide'
iiewiih attention. Leading rab=
binical authorities were Called
lo testify .oft JeWish Law aspects
of the suit.
Judge Stich's ruling, Order-
ing retention of a mechitza, a
.physical barrier separating men
from women at worship, was
.based on the argument that its
elimination would constitute "a
:diversion of the use of the syna-
gogue to a purpose other than
provided in the charter and
also stipulated in the act of
donation by Benjamin Rosen-
berg," a founder of the syna-
gogue.
Judge Stich accepted the ar-
gument of proponents of separ-
ate seating that a majority of
the congregation _ could not
change such arrangements be-
cause such a chance would de-
prive the minority of its reli-
gious rights.
The case had been appealed
to the Louisiana S u p r e m e
Court, which had refused to ac-
cept jurisdiction and trans-
ferred the appeal to the Paris
Appeals Court.
David Herman, congregation
first vice-president and one of-
the attorneys representing the
congregation, said a request for
a re-hearing would be filed soon
with the appellate court. He
added that if the lower court
rejected the request, the con-
gregation might seek a writ
from the State Supreme Court.

Matzo Teether
Reb Zundel Salanter, who was
a man of delicate health, fainted
one erev Pesach, and it was
hard to resuscitate him. A phy-
siCian was called, and he sug-
gested that one of his teeth be
• pulled. This drastic act revived
the prostrate saint, and when he
realized what had been done to
him, he ruefully observed: "Now
I'll be unable to fulfill the mitz-
vah of eating matzah tonight:,
