Shavuot Dairy Recipes

By MILDRED G. BELLIN

(Copyright, 1963, Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, Inc.)

On Shavuot Jewish families
throughout the world feature
dairy foods as a special part of
the holiday. In the Middle East
it may be a dash of rice with
milk, in Europe or Ainerica
cheese blintzes cr kugel. This
tradition of eating dairy food
goes so far back into ancient
times.
Old, too, is the custom of
serving honey or dishes con-
taining honey. There are in-
terpreations linking both cus-
toms to the giving of the Torah,
but these explanations are of a
later date than the traditions
themselves.
In this year's menu, we have
included honey, and dishes
which contain milk, cheese, and
several of the early vegetables.
These are combined in a meal
which begins with a traditional
appetizer. Vegetarian "Chop-
ped Liver," which we garnish
with radishes, cucumber, and
scallions. Milk appears as a
Cream of Celery Soup. For th -
main course there is another
traditional dish, a Lemon Fish
which is a favorite among Sep-
hardi Jews for festive occas-
ions. The flavor of the fish
prepared in this way blends
particularly well with the new
potatoes we like to serve at this
season. And for desert there
is a cottage cheese transformed
into an especially delicious
kugel. The courses are so
planned that rich and creamy
foods alternate with bland and
tart ones, to refresh our tastes.

Bloch Issues Hertz
Book Published with
Aid of Lurie Fund

Made possible by the Lurie
Publication Fund of Temple
Beth El, Dr. Richard C'. Hertz's
"continuous sermon delivered
during the Holy Days of 5723"
was issued this week by Bloch
Publishing Co. of New York.
Survival, Happiness, Purpose,
Goodness and Immortality are
the topics of the five sermons
which make up the continuous
theme.
In his preface, Rabbi Hertz
states that in these themes he
offers "five keystones which to-
gether form an 'arch of tri-
umph' through which you can
walk into the New Year with
courage, with hope and with
faith."
Not only the messages of the
holy days, as delineated in this
series of sermons, but the les-
son of faith and the message
of Judaism as taught through
the ages find echoes that will
make this small book a genuine
guide for those searching for
guidance as Jews in the Ameri-
can milieu.

New Anti-Israel
Flag at the UN

18 San Francisco
Adults Bar-Mitzvahed

By SAUL CARSON
(JTA Correspondent at the
United Nations)
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. —
Fourteen years, almost to the
day, after Israel's admission to
the United Nations, when the
Jewish State became Member
No. 59, the current special
session of the General Assem-
bly voted to admit Member No.
111. The new member is Kuwait.
What entitles Kuwait to mem-
bership in the United Nations?
It claims it is a sovereign na-
tion. It is a tiny piece of land
in the Middle East with an area
of 322,000 square miles — a
little more than a third of
Israel's area. rt has a population
(by such census statistics as
exist) of about 650,000—about
a quarter of Israel's population.
But it has two other assets:
oil and membership in the Arab
League. Built into the latter, of
course, is an anti-Israel atti-
tude. In his first speech from
the podium of the Assembly,
Sabah al-Ahmed al-Sabha, the
little sheikdom's Foreign Min-
ister, showed he was a loyal
member of the Arab League by
telling the UN: "Kuwait is an
indivisible part of the Arab
homeland, part of the Arab
nation.. Kuwait confirms its full
support of Arab unity." Re-
ferring to "the tragic suffering
of the Palestinian Arabs," he
stated: "Passage of time cannot
deprive the people of Palestine
of their legitimate rights to
return to their homeland."
That takes care of one asset—
membership in the Arab League
and support of the Arab stand
against Israel.
Kuwait exported (in 1960)
650,000 barrels of oil — more
than one-third of the entire oil
output from the entire Middle
East. Kuwait has oil reserves
estimated at 600,000,000,000
(that's billions, not millions)
barrels, one-fourth of the oil
reserves in the entire free
world. In 1960, the United
States alone imported Kuwait
oil valued at $123,400,000. That
was, of course, only part of
Kuwait's oil export total. What
does Kuwait's ruler, Sheikh Sir
Abdulla as-Salim as-Sabah, get
out of this? By contrast with
the. American Independent Oil
Company, the Sheikh gets roy-
alties amounting to 57 per cent
of net profits. (Incidentally, did
you note the similarity between
the Sheikh's name and that of
his F or eign Minister? The
"country" is run by a tight-knit
Sahba dynasty. In other words,
all nephews get Cadillacs —
gold plated.)

Eighteen men whose average
age is 42 will participate next
Saturday in an unusual, mass
"Bar Mitzvah" rite at Temple
Beth Jacob, in Redwood 'City,
near here, under the guidance
of the temple's spiritual leader,
Rabbi Herbert D. Teitelbaum.
The men have concluded two
years of special study in He-
brew and Jewish customs and
traditions under Rabbi Teitel-
baum's tutelage. All of them
volunteered for such a class two
years ago, when some members
of the congregation, who had
missed being Bar Mitzvah when
they were 13, asked for such in-
struction.
The adult Bnai Mitzvah in-
clude one man with a doctorate
in philosophy, four engineers, a
steel company executive, and
other professionals and busi-
nessmen. Among them, the
Bnai Mitzvah have 48 children
and two grandchildren. Nine of
the adults have sons who had
already celebrated their Bar
Mitzvah. All but two are native-
born. According to Rabbi Teitel-
baum, all members of the spe-
cial class plan to continue their
education in Hebrew and Jewish
traditions.
