Planned as a tribute to Litwak's
35 years of public service, pro-
ceeds from contributions will go
toward the construction of a
youth center in the ancient city
of Acre, Israel, which will bear
Litwak's name.
A communication received from
the mayor of Acre and co-signed
by the secretary of the Labor
Council expressed the municipal-
ity's thanks and appreciation to
the officers, sponsors and testi-
monial committee members for
their initiative in making this
sorely needed institution possible.
• "Our community," writes Mayor
Joseph Gadish, "like so many
others in Israel, has its growing
pains. With courage, skill and
devotion our citizenry is making
great strides forward. And like
all communities in Israel, its
chief concern is its youth, the
youngsters who must be taught to
become productive workers and
useful citizens. The Isaac Litwak
Youth Center will make an in-
valuable contribution to this fu-
ture."
To be built on land contributed
by the City Council, the center

`Song of Songs'
and Sabbath Prayers

BY RABBI SAMUEL J. FOX

(Copyright, 1961, Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, Inc.)
It is traditional to recite the

"Song of Songs" every Friday
evening before the Sabbath
prayers.
Some claim this is done be-
cause the Sabbath Eve Service
welcomes the Sabbath as a
bridegroom would welcome his
bride. The "Song of Songs,"
being an expression of grea
love, is a fitting Biblical text
read before such an occas
The general motive behind is
ok
reasoning is that one is t
the
forward to the approach
Sabbath with great desir and
anticipation for its many ss-
ings and spiritual gifts. 0 rs
(Zohar) claim that the
of Songs" has 117 verses wh
correspond to the 117 hour
during the week in which the
victims of Gehena are punished.
Its recital is offered to spare
those who utter it from this
punishment. The total Of 117 is
arrived at by asserting that
our and one-half hours each
y, the hours of prayer, are
ose in which the victims of
henna are at rest, leaving a
lance of 117 hours in which
ey are tortured. Still others
laim (Midrash Hanealarn) that
in the afternoon hours of every
Friday the sanctity of the hu-
man soul reveals itself in the
spirit of .the Sabbath. One of
the great sages was said to have
discovered the deep meaning of
the "Song of Songs" during this
period. Thus it is recited since
its meaning is not to be fully
understood at any other time of
the week (Shaloh).
Six chapters of the Psalms
are recited before the eve-
ning service Friday. -
The Kabbalist, Moshe Cordo-
vero, is said to have recited
these Psalms at that - occasion
because he felt they repre-
sented the six days of the week,
as they speak the Majesty of the
Almighty revealed in the works
of the universe. Others claim
that the Gaonim instituted this
practice to correspond to the
six blasts of the Shofar which
were blown to announce the
coming of the Sabbath. Gener-
ally speaking, an introduction
such as this was in order be-
cause the service on the eve of
the Sabbath was always moved
up earlier in time in order to
add more minutes to the Sab-
bath from the week-day world.
Consequently. it was felt in
order to use these Psalms as an
indication that the Majesty of
the Almighty is to be found in
the week-day world when one
looks forward to the Sabbath.
