Rabbi Calls Visit
to Holy Land a
Papal Atonement

c-D

Pope Paul VI was "trying to
atone" for the sins of Christian-
ity during the Hitler regime
when he visited Israel last
month. said a New York Reform
rabbi here for the 14th annual
Institute on Judaism sponsored
by Temple Israel Sisterhood.
Rabbi Balfour Brickner, in-
terfaith spokesman for Ameri-
can Reform Judaism, was in-
vited to speak before a group
of non-Jewish student teachers
at the Marygrove College work-
shop-lecture afternoon, which
focused on beliefs and practices
in Judaism.
Enlarging on a topic which
he mentioned briefly in his
talk, Rabbi Brickner told Har-
old Schachern, religion writer
for The Detroit News: "The
Pope didn't speak out against
the Hitlerian insanity, nor did
he repudiate the Vatican's
concordat with the German
nation, but that is not the im-
portant thing.
"The important thing," he
said, "is that Christianity in
Germany and elsewhere let this
hideous thing grow.
"Where were the German
Protestants and Catholics who
might have stood at the church
door and told the SS troops in
their uniforms to get out?
Where were the churches and
church councils of the United
States when this was going on?
He continued, "Christianity
was silent while six million peo-
ple were being murdered, so
Pope Paul realizes he has to
find ways to express an atone-
ment for this sin of the entire
Christian family, and this trip
to the Holy Land may be just
the first gesture."
Referring to a defense of
Pope Pius by Dr. Joseph L.
Lichten of the Anti-Defamation
League, Rabbi Brickner called
his article, published by the
National Catholic Welfare Con-
ference, a "cheap apologia."

HAIFA—The Israeli flag was
hoisted Tuesday on the newest
Israeli liner, the SS Shalom, in
the French dock, making it the
flagship of Israel's merchant
fleet, the Zim-Israel Co. an-

being put on the liner, which
was built in France.
The Shalom will enter trans-
atlantic service this month with
a single, kosher kitchen after, a
running controversy over orig-

nonkosher. It was reported that
55 million pounds ($18.4 mil-

Synagogue's Origin as a House of Prayer

By DR. SOLOMON ZEITLIN

(In the Jewish Quarterly Review)

The tefillah, Shemoneh Esreh,

including the readings recited
every morning in the Temple,
were codified between 73-90.
This was the first canonization
of the Hebrew liturgy. There
were no formal prayers before
the destruction of the Temple.
Every person prayed to God ac-
cording to his needs. There was
only one formal prayer which
