Weekly Quiz

Why is it that the one who
leads the evening service (Ma-
ariv) in the synagogue on week-
days does not wear a tallith?
There are two basic reasons for
which the cantor (or layman who
acts as the cantor) for the week-
day evening service does not wear
a tallith. First, the commandment
of tzizith, which the tallith fulfills,
doesn't apply at night. It is a
commandment which is only re-
quired in the daytime. It is for
this reason that none of the wor-
shippers wear the tallith during the
evening ( M a ariv ) prayers. Sec-
ondly, the cantor's role during the
weekday evening service is not a
full role because the 18 benedic-
tions (Shmoneh Esreh) are not
repeated by the cantor during the
evening service, because the obli-
gation for the evening service is
technically not as mandatory as
that of the morning and afternoon
service. The morning and after-
noon services apply to the original
daily sacrifice that was offered
both morning and afternoon, while
the evening service was originally
comparatively voluntary.
Why does the leader (-or
cantor) of the service wear a
tallith on Friday evening?
There are two reasons for this
practice. First, there is a repeti-
tion of the Shmoneh Esreh bene-
dictions on Friday evening (at
least in an abbreviated form--i.e.

By RABBI SAMUEL J. FOX

(Copyright, 1966. JTA, Inc.)

Magen Aboth). Thus the leader of
the service or the cantor may be
said to perform a real public serv-
ice and thus the tallith becomes
mandatory, as the rabbis say "for
the honor of the congregation."
Secondly, the fact that the cantor
wears the tallith at the Friday
evening service is considered a
means of "honoring and/or digni-
fying the Sabbath."
Why does the cantor or leader
of the service wear a tallith on
the evening of the holiday serv-
ice and at the midnight service
of Selichoth?
Wearing the tallith on the holi-
day evening service is a means of
honoring the festival, the same as
everyone wears special holiday
clothes on festivals. Wearing the
tallith at the midnight Selichoth
service, the cantor reflects the
Almighty who showed Moses, and
later David, how to seek repent-
ance for the people of Israel, by
"wrapping himself in a Tallith like -
a cantor and reciting the 13 prin-
ciples of mercy."

PARIS (JTA) - Jean Francois Carey-Thomas Award

Steiner, a 28-year-old Jew, was
granted the annual Prix de la
Resistance for his book, entitled
"Treblinka."
The 2,500-franc (about $125)
prize was awarded to him despite
opposition by some critics who
charged he had not presented
very favorably the picture of Jew-
ish resistance against the Nazis.
While the award is not large,
the citation by the resistance move-
ment here is considered of great
literary value.
A French Catholic auth o -r,
Jacques Madaule, received another
prize, the annual Narcisse Leven
Award, established by the family
of the late Georges Leven, vice
president of the Alliance Israelite
Universelle.
The jury for this award was
headed- by Chief Rabbi Jacob Kap-
lan, and cited the author for his
"activity and distinction on behalf
of better relations between Jews
and Catholics." The value of the
prize is about $150.
