What is the purpose of the
Rabbi's message to the Bride
and Groom under the canopy?
A happy occasion was always
an opportunity for the Rabbi's
words of wisdom which would
give good counsel to the newly-
weds and which would give
spiritual uplift to the occasion.
There was a practical reason
for the Rabbi's message, how-
ever, according to many sources.
Actually, a Jewish wedding
ceremony is a combination of
two rituals. Originally these
two were at least some six
months or even a year apart.
(The first part of the ceremony
is called "Erusin" and the sec-
ond part is called "Nisuin").
For practical reasons the two
were made to follow each other
upon the same occasion. How-
ever, some distinctive act was
needed to demonstrate the fact
that they are two separate func-
tions and thus the Rabbi's mes-
sage was introduced between
the two. For this same reason,
some claim that the public
reading of the Marriage Con-
tract (the "Ketubah") was in-
serted between the two parts.
According to some it may be
possible that the Rabbi's Ser-
mon was introduced between
the Shacharis and the Musaf
Services on Sabbath and holi-
day mornings, to show that the
morning prayers were really
two distinct services.

Why do Bride and Groom
fast on their wedding day?
Two reasons are generally ad-
vanced for this practice. First,
it is claimed that the sins of
Bride and Groom are forgiven
on the past hovering over eith-
er of them. A Day of Forgive-
ness, similar to the annual Day
of Atonement (Yom Kippur)
was always observed by fasting„
so that a spirit of penance
would be felt with which one
could be considered deserving
of forgiveness. It is for this rea-
son that the groom recited the
confessions of the Yom Kippur
prayers in his afternoon liturgy.
The other reason advanced is
that eating might lead to drink-
ing and possible intoxication
which would prohibit the pair
from entering the marriage
bond with their full faculties.
Restricting the pair from food
and drink would accomplish
this purpose.

U.S. Rep. Cites Lack
of Jewish Rights in
Soviet Union

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Rep.
Clement J. Zablocki, Wisconsin
Democrat, member of the House
Foreign Affairs Committee,
called attention of Congress to
a statement by ten Milwaukee
religious leaders of different
faiths protesting Soviet anti-
Semitism.
T h e Milwaukee statement,
sent to Nikita Khrushchev in
Moscow, was read into the Con-
gressional Record. Rep. Zablocki
pointed out, in remarks on the
House floor, that the signatories
of the appeal to the Soviet Union
urged Khrushchev "to put into
practice the freedom of religion
so often preached by S o vie t
leaders."
He said that "Jews behind the
Iron Curtain are not even ac-
corded the minimal rights grudg-
ingly conceded to other relig-
ions." He said the Wisconsin ex-
pression, "itself a hopeful sign
of unity between those who em-
brace Judeo. Christian tradition,
is a compelling and forceful
statement for freedom of con-
science and religion."

By Dr. Jack Jackman
Guest Columnist
Through the grapevine we
learned that worshipful master
I. Robert Stahl and his Oak
Park Lodge brethren will have
a family picnic in the sub-
urb's recreation area on Sun
day, July 21. Special attention
to the kiddies will be the order
of the day.
Headed by our son, the Mur-
ray Jackman Trio, currently at
the Playboy Key Club in St.
Louis, is meriting rave notices
by critical columnists. And talk
about race relations, two of the
boys are Negroes. The drum-
mer, Chic Booth, when asked
if he dared venture into the
deep south remarked, "Man,
I ain't even played the south-
ern end of this club." Big Jim
Heard plays the bass and the
Trio, with Murray at the piano,
really make beautiful music.
It couldn't have happened to
a nicer guy. Parking Lot King
LeRoy (Duke) Wisper was
stopped by a minion of the law
for an apparent traffic viola-
tion and the first question was,
"Why didn't you stop when I
whistled?" Duke tried to get
out of it by saying, "Well, you
see, officer, I'm a bit deaf." He
was properly squelched, how-
ever, when the policeman came
back with, "Well, don't worry
about that, sir, you'll get your
hearing tomorrow."
Get well, Danny Boy, we all
miss you.

Shazar Congratulates Jerusalem Holds
Schwartz' Bond Work Memorial for Torahs

Destroyed by Nazis

JERUSALEM, (JTA) — An
ancient custom was revived
here June 27 when a memorial
service was held on Mount Zion
for the Torah scrolls and other
holy works burned by the Nazis
during the holocaust.
The event, to be observed an-
nually during the week preced-
ing the reading of the Torah
portion of Hukas, dates back to
the early medieval period when
copies of the Talmud were
burned in Paris.

ahead of last year's record
effort. Dr. Schwartz visited
Israel to meet with Prime
Minister Levi Eshkol and oth-
er top government leaders to
review current development
needs of Israel's economy and
to discuss the program for
intensifying the settlement
and development of the
Negev.

WASHINGTON, (JTA) — A
proposed Constitution-al amend-
ment which would permit Bible
reading and prayer recitation
in public schools received a co-
sponsor in the U.S. Senate
while a controversy was devel-
oping in nearby Delaware on
the issue.
Senator Vance Hartke, Indi-
ana Democrat, announced his
co-sponsorship of the amend-
ment which was introduced by
Senator J. Glenn Beall, Mary-
land Republican. The proposal
was evoked by the Supreme
Court ruling earlier this month
banning those practices in pub-
lic schools as unconstitutional.
The developing debate in
Delaware centered on a ruling

David P. Buckson that Bible
readings and recitation of the
