Some dozen years ago Rabbi Simha
Mandelbaum built pot far from the wall
of the old city in
i Jerusalem a large
house containing a synagogue. Until the
War of Liberation only a few heard of
this house. But since then many have
heard about it.
Near the house runs the border be-
tween the State of Jordan and the State
of Israel. There, , is the only frontier
post between the two states. The name
of the post is Mandelbaum gate after
the name of the rabbi's house.
Whoever has seen the Arch of
Triumph in Paris or Titus's Arch in
Rome may imagine that the Mandel-
baum gate is a similar kind of gate.
But the truth is otherwise: Near Rabbi
Mandelbaum's house there is no special
gateway. There is only a barbed wire
fence and small sentry hut.
There is not much traffic at this gate.
Usually only a few people pass through
it; diplomates, UN personnel, priests
and tourists from Israel to Jordan or
Jordan to Israel.
Near the gate Israeli and Jordanian
representatives occasionally meet. There
they try to clarify common problems:
persons who have crossed the border
inadvertantly, infiltrators who have
stolen, activities against contagious
This is the only place where it is
possible to see an Israeli and Jordanian
policeman having a friendly chat. Both
of them have no doubt similar problems
—both have a wife and children at
home. Their fdendship is interfered
with by the border, facilitated by the

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
On the Separation Issue
rtv znnri -)117 ri!nn
26 Friday, September 2, 1966
Editor, The Jewish News:
In your editorial of Aug. 19,
and in a follow-up with a reply by
Senator Philip Hart, you discuss
the proposed amendment by Sen-
ator Everett Dirksen. Though I am
against this bill and other
breaches of the First Amendment,
I feel - that Senator Hart has mis-
interpreted this part of the Con-
stitution. He has stated the phrase,
"Congress shall make no law re-
specting an establishment of re-
ligion . . .", to mean that no law
may be made to name one re-
ligion as the official religion of
the land. However I think it has
a much broader sense. The whole
concept of separation of church
and state is evolved from this
amendment. To interpret it as
to mean no official religion may
be allowed, is to rule out all other
infringements of "c h u r c h and
It seems to me that our Found-
ing Fathers meant that religion
may not be integrated with any-
thing dealing with government;
thus it would also include banning
prayers in school.
Therefore, it 'is not the mere
banning of a national religion, but
rather the whole involvement of
religion in government. Thus
Senator Hart's argument that the
reciting of "Ave Maria" or the
"Lord's Prayer" is establishing re-
ligion does not hit at the core of
the problem. It is involvement
of religion in government (this
case happens to be school which
is in the vicinity of government)
that violates our constitution.
Sincerely and with the utmost
respect to the editor and Senator

Emanuel Amiran (Pugatchov),
director of the Israel Education
Ministry's musical studies division,
who was invited by the U. S. State
Department to the conference of
the International Society of Musi-
cal Educators in Ann Arbor and
Interlochen, will spend a few days
in Detroit as the guest of Mr. and
Mrs. Herbert Eskin, 19339 Lauder.
He is expected here Sunday.
There has rarely been an oneg
Shabat, or campfire sing-song, held
anywhere in the Jewish world with-
out some of his songs being sung.
There is no Israeli school song

songs or modern celebration of .fes-
tivals complete, without his famous

When President Zalman Shazar
decided on something original
for a diplomatic function honor-
ing United Nations Day, he
asked Amiran to arrange the
program and even give the fes-
tive opening speech.
For 15 years, Amiran has held
the highest government post in
the musical world of Israel. His
first and foremost innovation in
that position is the annual schools
choral festival held during the en-
tire month of March and now in-
cluding 35,000 school children in
their school choirs. This has given
rise to the annual school band fes-
tivals, for which the main impetus
was a second project, the acquisi-
tion of musical instruments through
the efforts of Chicagoan Max Targ,
who has in the last 15 years sent
a million-dollars worth of instru-
ments through AMLI, the Ameri-
can Musical Library for Israel, foi
Amiran to distribute.
