Mount Zion in Jerusalem serves to-
day as a spiritual centre for pilgrims
from Israel and the Diaspora. Ac-
cording to tradition, king David is
buried on Mount Zion. From it, it is
possible to view the ruins of the old
city and the site of the Temple
which are in non-Jewish hands.
Prior to the emergence of the
State, it was the custom to visit and
pray on Mount Zion on the feast of
Shavuot which is the anniversary of
King David's death. The Arabs al-
lowed isolated individuals only to
visit there and that only against pay-
ment. In the war of Liberation
Mount Zion was conquered and it is
the most important holy place out-
side the walls of the Old City in
Besides the tomb of king David
and the adjoining synagogue there is
on mount Zion the Cellar of the Holo-
caust where are stored urns of the
ashes of the martyrs of the extermin-
ation camps and parchment leaves of
Torah scrolls desecrated by the Nazis.
The walls of the cellar are covered
with hundreds of tablets in memorial
to the Diaspora communities, fixed
there b1' survivors of the communi-
On the top of the mount is the
yeshiva of mount Zion where Mishna
is studied in memory of the six mil-
lion' martyrs slaughtered by the
The mount Zion committee attached
to the Ministry of Religious Affairs
has initiated the project of barmitzva
partners: the parents of a barmitzva
boy in the Diaspora can inform the
management of mount Zion of this
and the latter puts him in touch with
an Israeli child whose barmitzva is at
the same time. Both children receive
barmitzva certificates and greeting
scrolls from the mount from which,
according to tradition, all blessing
goes forth. The mount Zion commit-
tee has likewise initiated the dispatch
of foundation stones from mount Zion
to Diaspora synagogues. Every new
synagogue being erected orders a
foundation stone from mount Zion.
During the festival pilgrimage tens
of thousands of Pilgrims ascend
mount Zion in song and melody, all
of them receive ,a certificate and
flower from mount Zion.

A company of 86, including
Irene Jordan, John McCollum,
Russell Oberlin, Ara Berberian
and Joann Freeman at the harp-
sichord, comprise the Little Or-
chestra with Thomas Scherman.
They will present "Judas Mac-
cabaeus" as a- salute to the Amer-
ican Jewish community during its
observance of Hanukah.
Although the tenor aria "Sound
an Alarm" and the exultant
march chorus "See the Conquer-
ing Hero Comes" have long been
staples of the international con-
cert repertoire, "Judas Macca-
baeus" as a whole has had rela-
tively few performances on the
American concert stage.
Thomas Scherman performed it
first in December, .1959 at Car-
negie Hall in New York. The
original company will present the
work at the . Detroit Art Institute
auditorium, on Dec. 7.
