South African Beth Din Urges Non-Fraternization

The Beth Din letter points out
that in the agreement on com-
munal cooperation made between
Orthodox Chief Rabbi B. M.
Casper and Reform Senior Rabbi
A. S. Super a year ago, it was
expressly recognized that "from
the religious point of view there
is an unbridgeable gulf between
Orthodoxy and Reform," and that
while they could cooperate in the
communal sphere, they could not
participate in each other's reli-
gious services or hold joint serv-
Therefore, says the Beth Din let-
ter, "Orthodox Jews should not
attend services in places of Re-
form worship, nor should they take
part in any functions arranged by
a Reform congregation."

Why does the Jewish tradition re-
quire a male to have fringes put on
the four-cornered garment which he
wears (i.e. either the Talith he prays
in, or the undergarment of four
corners which males wear, according
to the Jewish tradition)?
The Bible itself gives the reason
for this commandment (Numbers
15:39) by saying "that ye may
look upon it and remember all the
commandments of the Almighty
and fulfill them, and that ye seek
not after your own heart, and your
own eyes, etc." The Tzizit thus. re-
minds us of our responsibility to
obey the Lord's commandments
and they serve 'as a deterrent to
make sure we do not follow the
temptations of our eyes and hearts
which tend to lead us astray from
the Almighty's path. Some claim

Foreign Minister Abba Eban, now
on an official visit to Denmark,
was the guest of the Jewish com-
munity here. After being welcom-
ed by Leo Fischer, president of
the community, Eban delivered an
address in which he reported on
the present situation in Israel and
the ties between Israel and the
Jews of the Diaspora.
Citing the danger of weakening
those ties, the Foreign Minister
said that, in the West, Jews are
more and more free and sometimes
"throw away" their Jewish heri-
tage. To avoid this, Eban called
on Jewish communities outside of
Israel to encourage the study of
Hebrew and "the old traditions"
and in this way strengthen mutual
links with Israel.
