Minha Prayer's Regulated Time .

By RABBI SAMUEL J. FOX

(Copyright, 1966, JTA, Inc.)

Like the other regular prayer
times, the time for the afternoon
prayer of Minha has two limits
— the earliest time of the day
when one can start the prayer and
the latest time of the day beyond
which the prayer of Minha cannot
be recited. Basically, there seem
to be two elements which govern
the situation. One is the fact that
the prayer of Minha corresponds to
the original afternoon sacrifice in
the Temple. The other is the con-
tention that the prayer of Minha is
in emulation of the prayer offered
by the Patriarch Isaac (like the
morning prayer corresponds to the
prayer of Abraham and the evening
prayer corresponds to the prayer
of Jacob). The time for the after-
noon sacrifice of the temple was
approximately the last fifth of the
day (i.e. in a 12-hour-day this
would be at 3:30 p.m. — as the
day is longer or shorter this point
would vary. This period is called
"Minha Ketanah" (i.e. the small
period of Minha — called so be-
cause there is a more extensive
period as well). Once a year the
afternoon sacrifice was offered at
a half hour after midday (i.e. the
afternoon before Passover — so
that the Paschal lamb could be
sacrificed all afternoon because of
the requirement for each family to
offer this sacrifice by slaughtering
the lamb in the afternoon and eat-
ing from it at the evening seder
table). Thus Minha may be recited
any day of the year beginning from
one half hour after midday (this
must be measured according to the
length of the day from sunrise to
sunset).
The Shulchan Aruch (Orach
Chayyim 233) contends that the
latter part of the day (the last
two and one half hours) is the
preferable time — but one can,
when necessary, offer the Minha
prayer any time after one half hour
passes after the midday point. The
lower limit of offering the prayer

of Minha varies according to vari-
ous opinions. Those who are in-
clined to follow the opinion of Rab-
bi Judah 'and to offer the evening
prayer(Maariv) from the period be-
ginning one and one quarter hours
before sunset must offer the Min-
ha prayer before that time. Most
people follow the tradition of
allowing themselves until the time
of astronomical sunset to offer the
prayer of Minha. Many say it can
be offered until the end of twilight
(the most acceptable opinion states
that twilight is approximately 20
minutes after sunset). According to
the Kabbalists (the Zohar, etc.),
some have the tradition of pre-
ferring to offer the Minha prayer
during the twilight period because
it is then that the severity of the
heavenly judgment takes place
and the prayer would tend to soften
that judgment. Also, the original
prayer of Isaac was said to have
been offered then.

The Task of Culture

By DR. JACOB KLATZKIN

One of the great tasks of cul-
ture is to convert necessity into
freedom. Its mission is to educate
human beings to enjoy their obli-
gatory acts, so they may discharge
them with a sense of inner free-
dom, as though they themselves
had willed them. A man should
enjoy the labor of his hands and
not feel it as a curse. A worker
who crushes stones and builds a
house should enjoy the processes
of toil and construction quite apart
from the enjoyment of the pros-
pective pay. This, then, is the pur-
pose of education: to increase with-
in us the innocence of enjoyment.
Just as art is commissioned to
give us life, with all its sorrows
and pains, as a gift for enjoyment
(in a stage play, even the mar-
tyred death of the just offers a
species of enjoyment), so all cul-
ture is commissioned to convert,
as far as lies within its power,
pain into enjoyment, necessity
into freedom.

When a human being is a year
old, he is like a king: everyone
loves and embraces him. At 2, he
is like a pig, wallowing in his dirt.
During his boyhood, he is like a
kid, dancing and laughing all day
long .When he is 18, he is like a
horse, rejoicing in his youth and
strength. When he marries, he
is like an ass, carrying a burden.
Later, he becomes like a dog, un-
ashamed to ask favors and to beg
for a livelihood. In his old age, he
is like a monkey; he becomes cur-
ious and childish, and no one pays
any attention to his words.—Tan-
huma Pekudei.

BRUCE LYONS, still waiting for
his managership of a branch at
Manufacturers National Bank .. .
and roving from one spot to an-
other . . . tells of the girl coming
over to him at one branch and
asking if he could cash her hus-
band's check . . . After looking at
the signature, Bruce said it was
all right, but would need an en-
dorsement first . • . The girl wrote
on the back of the check, "My hus-
band is really a great guy."
