What is the meaning of the
four species used during the
Sukkot holiday?
Various interpretations have
been given by Rabbinic sources.
Some explain that the four
plants indicate the combination
of various qualities found in
human beings. For example,
the citron having both frag-
rance and taste represents the
man of learning and good deeds.
The palm branch, representing
a fruit which has taste but no
fragrance represents a man of
good deeds with little learn-
ing. The myrtle branch having
fragrance but no taste repre-
sents a man of learning with
few deeds. The willow branch
having neither taste nor frag-
rance represents the individual
with little learning or good
deeds. Other sources claim that
the shape of the four species
represents four types of organs
in the human being. The citron
represents the heart, the palm
branch reflects the spine, the
myrtle leaves look like the eyes,
and the leaves of the willow
branches look like the lips. The
underlying thought seems to be
that unity of various types of
people, or of the best products
of human organs, is desirable
in order to bring about pros-
perity and salvation.
Why are the four species
waved in six directions?
(East, west, north, south,
above and below?)
Some claim that these move-
ments are executed to indicate
the omnipotence of the Al-
mighty who is present every-
where, including the Heavens
and the earth_in all four direc-
tions. Others claim that the
motions were representative of
a desire to art evil sources
from whatever direction they
come.- Still - others felt that the
pointing of the palm branch in
alp ,of these directions acted as
a thwarting agent to confuse
and frustrate the intentions of
Satan.

Charge German Official, Marbach,
Lied About War Crimes in Greece

KIEL, (JTA)—Karl Marbach,
president of the Schleswig-Hol-
stein Financial Court and Nazi
wartime administrator for the
German Army in Salonika, is on
trial in criminal court here on
charges of giving false testimony
in the trial of Max Merten on
war crimes in occupied Greece,
including the deportation of more
than 100,000 Jews.
Merten, who succeeded Mar-
bach in Salonika, was convicted
by a Greek military tribunal and
sentenced to 25 years imprison-
ment. He was released on am-
nesty to West Germany in 1959
pending retrial by a German
court.
Marbach was accused of giv-
ing the false testimony in July
1958 when he was questioned
about executions and deportations

in wartime Greece. Marbach had
claimed that during his service
in Salonika he had never heard
of any "acts of revenge" against
the civilian population. It was
proved subsequently that he had
counter-signed a number of in-
criminating documents.
Meanwhile Merten, in a letter
to the Frankfurter Algemeine
Zeitung, admitted that the paper
was correct in reporting that a
Greek court charged him in
March 1959 with responsibility
for the deportation of 46,000
Jews and the inhuman treatment
of 56,000 Salonkai Jews, as well
as with the shooting of hundreds
of Greek partisans. However, he
asserted that it was "not at all
certain" whether criminal pro-
ceedings would be opened against
him by the West Berlin court
now examining his case.
