Beth Yehudah's Young Men to Mark
Sinai Anniversary With All-Night Vigil
The 400-member student body
of Yeshiva Beth Yehudah will not
sleep Saturday night.
At the Northwest center of the
school, 17376 Wyoming, and at the
Oak Park branch, 15400 W. Ten
Mile, young men from age 12 to
24 will be observing an all-night
vigil of Torah study in commemor-
ation of the reverence of God at
Sinai, some 3,500 years ago.
Saturday is the eve of the Jew-
ish Festival of Pentecost, which
is a Greek word meaning "the
50th." When the children of Israel
were preparing to depart from
Egypt in the great Exodus, they
were informed by Moses that they
would have to tarry in the - wilder-
ness for a period of seven times
seven days, after which they would
receive the Torah at Mt. Sinai. So
eager were the children of Israel
to receive the Law of God that
they counted each day of the seven
weeks. Finally on the 50th day
(Pentecost), which was a Sabbath,
Moses ascended the mountain, and
the heavens split open, yielding
the immortal Commandments.
In commemoration of these
events, the all-night vigil on the
night of Pentecost has become
part of Jewish tradition.
Pentecost is a season for re-
flection and rededication to the
principles of Torah and to the
laws and ethical and oral teach-
ings that Judaism has brought
to the world.
is in his honor that the Book of 66 elected Marsha Kaplan, re-
cording secretary, and Douglas
Ruth is read on this festival.
