Sound of GI Shofar Spans the Years

A friend conversing with
Rabbi Judah asked him: "In
the future world, when the soul
comes before the Almighty for
judgment, may it not find a plea
of excuse for worldly wicked-
ness in saying: "Lo. the sin is
the body's; I am now free from
the body; the sins were not
mine?"
Rabbi Judah answered: "Let
me tell you a parable: a king
had an orchard of fine figs,
which he prized most highly.
That the fruit might not be
stolen or abused, he placed two
watchers in the orchard; that
they themselves might not be
tempted to partake of the fruit,
he chose a blind man and a
lame man."
"But lo, when they were in
the orchard, the lame man said
to his companion: "I see fine
figs, luscious and tempting.
Carry me, to tte tree so that we
both may enjoy them." So said,
so done: the blind man carried
the lame man, and they ate of
the figs.
When the king entered the
orchard, he noticed at once
that his finest figs were missing
and he asked the watchers what
had become of them. The blind
man answered promptly: "I
know not. I could not steal
them. I'm blind, I could not
even see them." And the lame
man said: "Neither could I
have stolen them. How could I
approach the tree?" But the

Soul and Body

A Talmudic Parable

Historic photograph above, from the National Archives, shows
a High Holy Day service for Jewish troops in the American
Expeditionary Forces of World War I. Held in the YMCA hut
at Chaumont, France, in 1918, the service was conducted by
Rabbi Jacob Kohn, of New York, who was sent overseas by
the National Jewish Welfare Board. Below, the Jewish chap-
lain with the U.S. Army in Verdun, France, shows a group of
today's French Jewish youngsters the shofar which he used
in a joint Rosh Hashanah service for their parents and Ameri-
can GIs in the community synagogue. JWB's Commission on
Jewish Chaplaincy recruits, endorses and serves Jewish chap-
lains in all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. This year
marks the 100th anniversary of the Jewish military chaplaincy,
celebrating the signing of a law by President Lincoln which
first permitted rabbis to serve as Jewish chaplains.

king was wise and said: "The
blind man carried the lame."
And he punished them severely.
So it is with us. The world
is the orchard in which the
Eternal King has placed us to
keep watch and ward, to till
the soil and care for its fruit.
But the soul and body are the
man; if one violates the com-
mandments, so does the other.
After death the soul may not
say: "It is the fault of the body
to which I was tied that I com-
mitted sins." No. God will do
as the king, as it is written:
"He shall call from the heav-
ens above, and to the earth to
judge his people. He shall call
from the heavens above, which
is the soul and to the earth
below,.which is the body mixing
with the dust from which it
sprung."
For Jewish spirituality com-
bines heaven and earth, as it
were. It does not separate soul
from body or mind from nature,
but understands man and his-
tory in the unity of man's phys-
ical and spiritual life.
