Prayer for Government


(Copyright. 1967, JTA. Inc.)

Its customary in many syna-
gogues to offer a prayer for the
government of the country after
the Tora Reading on the Sabbath.
This prayer or type of prayer
seems to have originated in early
medieval times. Its importance as
a Jewish tradition is traced to the
passage in Jeremiah where the
prophet, in foretelling the coming
exile of the people of Israel, com-
mands them in the name of the
Almighty as follows: "And seek
the peace of the city whither I
have caused you to be carried

Texas Prelate Opens Drive
Against Anti-Semitism

nouncing anti-Semitism which he
said has roots that are "deep and
dark," Archbishop Robert E. Lucey,
whose Roman Catholic jurisdiction
includes 32 Texas counties, opened
an educational drive Friday, de-
signed to educate laymen in the
spiritual and human aspects of
Catholic -Jewish relations. He
ordered every parish priest to dis-
tribute the material. Noting the
"deep and dark" roots of anti-
Semitism, he told the priests: "We
can never know precisely where
they dwell and when they surface.
It is vital that all people become
informed of the truth about the sin
against our Christian conscience."

away captive, and pray unto the
Lord for it, for in the peace thereof
shall ye have peace" (Jeremiah
29:7). In the Book of Ezra we find
Cyrus asking the Jews who were
returning to Jerusalem to "pray
for the life of the king and his
sons" (Ezra 6:10). The early Rab-
bis of the Talmudic era asked the
people to "pray for the peace of
the kingdom" (Avoth, Chap. 3;
Avodah Zarah 3:b). The medieval
liturgist (Abudraham) indicates
that this prayer was also recited
on Mondays, Thursdays and on
Jewish holidays, meaning that it
was recited on every day that the
Tora was read in the synagogue.
Evidently these were the days
when more people were in attend-
ance. It is interesting to note that
originally, the prayer mentioned
the name of the ruling monarch.
It was only after an occasion
where a foreign power had cap-
tured the local government and
the censor refused to let the Jews
use their prayer books because
the old monarch's name was seen
printed there, that many prayer
books later eliminated the name
of the ruling monarch from the
printed text.

The Kibbutz Haggada has long
become in Israel part of a new
Passover tradition that sharply de-
viated from traditional observance.
There are about 100 Kibbutz Hag-
gadoth in existence and though
they are still in revolt against the
old pattern of the Passover ritual,
they lately show a decided swing
to the "right"—a conscious return
to the "old" custom.
The illustration shown here —
highlighting the "Four Questions"

Haggada used in the Kibbutzim of

"Hashomer Hatzair."

Two New Jewish
Novels Published
in Soviet Union

Hebrew Musical a Hit
in London Theater

Novosti Press Agency (APN)
reports to The Jewish N e w s,
through the USSR Embassy in
Washington, that a novel about
the Vilnius (Vilna) ghetto, hero
Itzik Vittenberg, who was a leader
of the underground resistance
movement against Nazism, has been
written by the Jewish novelist,
Iosif Rabin, under the title "I See
You, Vilnius." The APN report
about this novel states:
"The underground organization
in the ghetto got ready for a big
operation, but the Germans learned
of this and demanded that Vitten-

berg immediately be handed over
to them, otherwise the ghetto, with

all its 20,000 inhabitants, would
be destroyed.
"Vittenberg thus faced the tragic
choice of either sacrificing him-
self or else seeing thousands of
the unfortunate ghetto inmates
put to death. He had every chance
of getting away and joining the
guerrillas, but his conscience, his
duty as a revolutionary, prompted
him to surrender to the fascists.
Vittenberg realized that his death
would not save the people in the
ghetto, but they believed, or rather
to say, wanted to believe that the
death of one person would possibly
postpone for a certain period the
extermination of 20,000.
"Itzik Vittenberg voluntarily
gave himself up to the Gestapo
and perished. Was he right in tak-
ing this step or not? Iosif Rabin.

give a straight answer, but leaves
it to the reader to judge this heroic
The Russian news agency also
announces another Russian novel,
"Spring," by Samuil Gordon, a
translation from the Yiddish by
Iosif Gurevich.
This 250-page novel deals with
the life of the young generation
of the Soviet Union. The leading
character is the son of Colonel
Siver. His life is described from
days of his childhood to maturity.
This volume also includes two
narratives, "Vineyard" and "Re-
turn," as well as "Virgin Soil,"
"Subway Incident," "P e c h o r a
Barmber," and other stories about
contemporary life in the Soviet
Samuil Gordon was born in Kau-

in 1928. He now lives in Moscow.
