A Hungarian Jewish leader
announced he would initiate
action to affiliate Hungarian
Jewry with the World Council
of Synagogues.
Prof. Alexander Scheiber, di-
rector of the Hungarian Rab-
binical Seminary in Budapest
who is now visiting this coun-
try:, said he would urge the
Jewish community of Hungary
to seek direct affiliation with
the world body. Prof. Schei-
ber is the first official repre-
sentative of the Jewish coin-
munity of Hungary to come
to the United States since
World War II.
The World Council of Syn-
agogues has affiliates and as-
sociates in 26 countries around
the world. To date it has no
affiliates in the countries of
Eastern Europe.

What are the "Kinoth?"
The "Kinoth" represent a spe-
cial collection of poetry which
laments the sad events in Jew-
ish history. Some of them were
inspired by the tragic events
when the Christian crusaders
killed so many Jewish people.
One of the poems laments the
public burning of Talmudic trac-
tates in France .during the 13th
century. Naturally, the most
common theme is the destruc-
tion of the Temple. This collec-
tion is read on Tisha b'Ab. Per-
haps most popular of the poems
are those written by Judah
Halevi in the 11th century, who
expressed his deep sentiments
for Zion.
* • *
Why do some Jews observe
some degree of mourning even
on the day after Tisha b'Ab?
There is a very authoratative
opinion which holds that the
Temple was destroyed on the
tenth day Ab. Therefore, the
very pious observe some mea-
sure of mourning on this day,
besides the customary day of
mourning on the ninth of Ab.
* *
Why are penitential prayers
such as Tachnun omitted from
the prayers on Tisha b'Ab?
Tisha b'Ab, while it is recog-
nized as a day of mourning for
the destruction of the Temple
and other tragic Jewish events,
is also considered as a type of
holiday. The Messiah is said to
have been born on Tisha b'Ab.
In general, no Jewish tragedy is
without some measure of hope.
Actually, when all will be fully
realized and events will be com-
pletely understood, the tragedies
in our personal life as well as in
in our communal lives, will be
seen to have been a blessing in
disguise. Thus. it is claimed that
penitential prayers are omitted
on Tisha b'Ab to strike a re-
mote symbol of festivity. Fur-
thermore, on occasions like
Tisha b'Ab, the spirit of mourn-
ing brings about penitence, even
without formal reminders and
thus claim the penitential pray-
ers are not omitted.

NEW YORK, (JTA)—A group
of 55 Christian clergymen and
college faculty members left
for a 29-day study tour of
Israel in a program arranged
by the Inter-University Com-
mittee on Israel. This is the
second annual tour of Israel
sponsored by the committee.
The group was composed of
prominent Protestant and Cath-
olic leaders and eduCators from
all parts of the country, and
included two college presidents,
deans and professors, as well
as prominent clergymen of all
faiths. Dr. Judah Nadich, rabbi
of the Park Avenue synagogue
in New York, is the tour leader.
Members of the group will
meet with their counterparts
in Israel at seminars and con-
ferences, and with governmen-
tal leaders in an effort to gain
insights into Israel's problems.

MEXICO, (JTA) — Several
synagogues, Jewish schools and
homes near the houses of wor-
ship were found to have been
smeared with the Nazi swas-
tika. Complaints were lodged
by the congregations and other
Jewish organizations with fed-
eral and city police authorities,
who are attempting to trace the
identity of those responsible
for the anti-Semitic daubings.
