Why is the naming of a boy de-
layed until the circumcision
takes place?
Basically naming of the child is
related to the circumcision cere-
mony. The tradition has come into
being to name the child immedi-
ately after he has been physically
circumcized. The reason for this,
according to some opinions, is that
the circumcision removes the im-
purity from the soul of the child
and he, therefore, becomes a pure
soul which he is not before being
circumcized. It should be pointed
out that there are sometimes cir-
cumstances whereby a boy is
named before the circumcision
takes place, e.g. where the circum-
cision has to be delayed because
of the health of the child, etc. It
should be further noted that the
Kabbalists have attached a sacred
significance to the name especially
since, in our Western tradition,
the child is named after a de-
ceased person.
Why do some traditions ask for
the father of the child to desist
from working the day on which
his son is circumcized?
Some authorities (M'amar Mor-
decai, orakch hayyim 468) claim
that this is so because the father
whose son is circumcized is con-
sidered as if he had brought a
sacrifice. In olden times work was
forbidden for the person on the
day of which he brought a sacri-
fice to the Holy Temple. (Tosafot
Pesahim 50a).
Somehow the day on which one
brought a sacrifice in olden times
was supposed to have an air of
sanctity which was not in con-
sonance with ordinary work day
activity. The same feeling was
probably applied to the day on
which one's son was circumcized.

Sinking of 'Struma'
Recalled in Romania

manian Jewry marked the 25th
anniversary of the sinking of the
Struma, a refugee ship that
foundered in the Sea of Marmora
in 1943 with 769 Jews aboard
who were trying to escape to
Palestine from Nazi - occupied
Chief Rabbi Moses Rosen of
Romania, in a memorial sermon
delivered to worshippers in the
Choral Temple here, denounced
"those who could have saved"
the Struma victims "by lifting a
finger, but did not do so." He
said the Struma has "become the
symbol of guilt almost as great
as that of the Fascist assassins."
Rabbi Rosen also took the oc-
casion to express the grief of
Romanian Jewry over a con-
temporary sea tragedy, the loss
of the Israeli submarine Dakar
with 69 aboard.
The Struma was one of several
small, over-aged ships that trans-
ported Jewish escapees from
Nazi Europe from Balkan ports
but was denied entry to Palest-
ine and other countries. The ves-
sel went down with all aboard in
a storm on the sea which lies
between the Dardnelles and the

TEL AVIV (JTA) — "Gen. de
Gaulle" carried a pail of Iraqi oil
through the streets of Haifa while
"Egypt's Nasser" and "Jordan's
King Hussein" conversed over the
telephone in Tel Aviv, March 14.
It was all in the spirit of the Purim
carnival which began the night be-
fore and reached a peak in the
famed Adloyada—Israel's version
of the Mardi Gras—that filled the
streets with song, dances and
especially children in the wildest
costumes they could create.
The international political figures
appeared in the form of life-size
puppets on mobile floats that
inched their way through the
throngs. An estimated half million
spectators watched the Purim
parade in Tel Aviv and only
slightly fewer were witness to
similar parades in Haifa.
The Nasser-Hussein float was a
pointed reference to the famous
telephone conversation, monitored
Israel during last June's Six-
II by
Day War, in which the Egyptian
a leader
and his Jordanian ally con-
a trived the story of U.S. and British
a air support for Israeli forces.
