Shmoneh Esreh

The- expression "Shmoneh Es-
reh" means "eighteen." The main
body of Jewish prayer recited
on week-days is referred to by
this title because there were
Originally 18 benedictions in this
prayer sequence. One was added
later. Still the 18 prayers are
significant because they were
the original ones.
The number 18 is said to have
many indications. Some contend
that there were 18 benedictions
because the name of the Al-
mighty is mentioned 18 times
in the twenty-ninth Psalm where
the majesty of the Almighty is
proclaimed. Also 18 times is the
name of the Almighty mentioned
in the "Kriath Shema"—the proc-
lamation of the faith which comes
before the 18 benedictions in
both the morning and evening
Prayer services. Some consider
the eighteen benedictions as
representing the 18 vertebrae of
the spinal column, indicating
that they are the•backbOne of
Jewish prayer. Others say that
the 18 benedictions stand for
the 18 times the .three patri-
irchs are mentioned. together in
the Scriptures — because our
prayers were first instituted by
the Patriarchs. Some contend
that the 18 benedictions repre-
sent the 18 times in Scripture
that the Almighty is said to
have "shown himself." Since in
prayer man comes face to face
with the Almighty, it is as if
He appears to him at that time.
Eighteen, of course, is also the
numerical equivalent of the He-
brew letters that go into making
up the word "life" (Chai) in
iebrew. Our prayers are, of
Course, one of the basic func-
tions of life. -

the Massachusetts Legislature
had before it an urgent plea
from the Massachusetts Council
of Rabbis and the Orthodox
Rabbinical Council of Greater
Boston for a Sabbatarian ex-
emption to the state's blue
laws.
Rabbi Samuel J. Fox, speak-
ing for the two organizations,
urged the Committee to take
action "to end the outright dis-
crimination against Sabbatar-
ians, including the Seventh Day
Adventists of the Christian
Church and Orthodox Jews."
He told the Committee that
"pressure groups" were using
the legislature as a tool to dis-

40 categories of business were
given exemptions from the
blue laws last year but that
no measure of relief of any
kind had been given to such
Sabbatarians.
The rabbi said he had been
advised that there was no
chance of _ getting such an
amendment to the blue laws
through the current session of
the legislature. However, Rep.

give serious consideration to
Rabbi Fox's plea.
A number of Massachusetts
representatives and senators
provided supporting statements
to Rabbi Fox's appeal, as did
the Jewish Community Council
of Greater Boston, the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee, the
American Jewish Congress and
Americans for Democratic Ac-
tion. •

Feldsberg, a 69-year-old attorney,
was elected president of the
Vienna Jewish Community. A
vice-president for the past 10
years, Dr. Feldsberg survived
several years in the Nazi con-
centration camp at Theresiens-
tadt. He succeeded Emil Maurer,
who resigned at the age of 79
because of illness.

Blessing for Host

Grace recited after meals in-
eludes a blessing for the host.
The rabbis claim that when the
Bible commanded us to eat,
Satisfy ourselves and Bless the
Almighty God, reference was
also implied to make it an ob-
ligation to bless the mortal host
as well as the heavenly host.
This was so because the mortal
host is actually an "image" of
the heavenly host above. Our
respect and thanks for and to
Man is thus a symbol of our
&everence and gratitude to the
heavenly Creator who made man.
