The annual dinner, which was
initiated 13 years ago, is the
main fund-raising event of the
school.
The Beth .Yehudah Schools
were founded in 1916. Operating
a network of day schools and
afternoon schools in the metro-
politan areas, they have as their
goal intellectual, moral and re-
ligious growth.
According to President Wolf
Cohen, graduates are presently
teaching in a number of syna-
gogue Hebrew schools and in
the various branches of the
Yeshivath Beth Yehudah. Others
have achieved distinction in
teaching posts in the public
schools and at the college level,
he said, while still others have
as a result of their education
become "informed and inspired
laymen" in secular pursuits in
the' community.

Yom Kippur Quiz

By RABBI SAMUEL J. FOX

(Copyright, 1962,
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.)

Why are the Torahs re-
moved from the ark and held
in hand during the chanting
of Kol Nidre on Yom Kippur
eve?
There are various reasons of-
fered for this practice. Some con-
tend that the public display of
the Torahs makes the congrega-
tion mindful of the seriousness
of the occasion. Others say that
seeing the Torahs, the congre-
gants are reminded of their fail-
ure to observe the 613 command-
ments required of them through-
out the text of the Torah. It is
also maintained that the Sifre
Torah are held because promises
and vows are annuled at Kol
Nidre. Since many promises and
vows are made over the Torah,
over which one swears, the Torah
is held at the time the vows are
annuled. Some claim that the
presence of the Torah being held
publicly brings to mind the unity
of the people of the congrega-
tion. Sin causes disunity and
diversity. On Yom Kippur, we
seek the integration of the Jew-
ish Community and it is through
the Torah that all Jews are
united—not only in the particu-
lar congregation but throughout
the world.
Originally only one Torah was
taken out, (Tur, Orach Chayyim
619). Technically, only one is
really required. Some take out
two Torahs to give the impres-
sion that the Torahs are two
witnesses who testify to our
guilt. Others take out three to
remind both ourselves and the
Almighty of the three patriarchs,
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, by
whose grace we beseech the Al-
mighty for our lives. Some take
out seven either to represent the
seven times we proclaim "The
Lord—He is G-d" at the end of
Yom Kippur, or to remind us of
the seven circuits around the
wall of Jericho before it came
tumbling down, hoping thus that
the wall of sin, which separates
us from the Almighty, will like-
wise be broken down. Those who
take out all the Torahs claim
that it is not prop0 to remove
some while embarrassing the
others, as a demonstration to
the public that even inanimate
objects should not be subjected
to embarrassing discrimination.
In some congregations, the honor
of holding these Torahs was auc-
tioned off—obviously more hon-
ors could be passed out or sold
if all the Torahs were taken out.

Synagogue Offers Aid
to Church Congregation
SAN FRANCISCO, (JTA) —
Congregation Emanu-El has of-
fered full use of its facilities
"for as long as they may be
needed" to the congregation of
St. Mary's Cathedral after it
was destroyed by fire.
Rabbi Alvin I. Fine and
President Samuel Jacobs made
the offer in a letter to Arch-
bishop Joseph McGucken, in
which they also extended
"heartfelt sympathy" on the de-
struction of "a great religious
and historical landmark of our
city."

Chicago Temple Asks
Rabbi to Turn Over
Fees to Congregation
CHICAGO, (JTA) — The
South Shore Temple of Chicago
has approved a policy under
which payments rendered to its
rabbi for services to congregants
will be turned over to the syna-
gogue.
The arrangement provides that
the funds be turned over to the
synagogue with the consent of
the congregant who receives- the
rabbi's services. The custom
generally is for a rabbi to retain
such payments as part of his
rabbinical income.

Rabbi Herman L. Davis, presi-
dent of the Rabbinical Council,
said the court would have three
rabbis as judges. The court will
be housed in a hotel, the Sher-
man House, which made facili-
ties available as a public service.
Rabbi Davis said that the author-
ity of the Jewish tribunal here,
as in a few other similar Jewish
courts in the United States, was
dependent entirely on voluntary
acceptance of its jurisdiction by
both litigants.
