immigrants from Aleppo, Syria.

Honeymoon in Toronto

Miriam
bY Field

Trim ce we, long ago, resolved never
to be servants to the Romans, nor to

any other than to Him who alone is the

true and just Ruler of mankind, that
time is now come that obliges us to
make that resolution good in practice ...
I cannot but esteem it as a favor that it
still in our power to die bravely and in
state of freedom . . . But first let as
da: troy the fortress by fire, and let us
spare nothing but our provisions; for
they will be a testimonial when we are
dead that we were not subdued for want
Qf necessaries, but that we have pre-
ferred death before slavery."
It was the year 73. The setting was
Masada, desolate rock fortress, one-
time summer palace of Herod the Great,
rising 1,400 craggy feet above the Dead
ea. Here, for seven desperate years, a
ndful of Zealots (some three or four
hundred ghting men) held thousands of
invincib e Roman legionnaires at bay.
When the Romans prepared for the final
assault, Eleazar ben Yair, leader of the
Zealots, exhorted his people to choose
death rather than enslavement, and this
was the noble choice they made. The
Romans successfully stormed the for-
tress but victory eluded them. For the
960 men, women and children had died by
their own hands in a triumphantly death-
defying demonstration that Josephus
records with admiration and with awe.

.A.:)he Jewish War, chronicled by Jo-
sephus, was one of the most fantastic
wars in all of history. For it was no token
resistance that tiny Judea waged against
the mighty Roman Empire, conqueror
of the ancient world. Inch by inch the
Judeans defended their diminutive home-
land as Rome sent vaunted legion after
legion into the fray. It took no fewer
than four years for crack general Titus
and some 80,000 men (with ten or twelve
thousand Julius Caesar had invaded
Britain!) to capture Jerusalem, and
still, for three more years, Masada had
held out . . . Today, at the site of that
epochal episode, young Israelis vow that
"Masada shall not fall again!"
This awesome event took place 1,895
years ago, in the month of Xanthikos,
on the 15th day of Nisan, in the season
of the Passover, Festival of Freedom ...

nd, talking of Passover, brings us-,
Fi
inevitably, to more immediate con-

siderations. For we celebrate this most
festive of all festivals with picturesque
rituals, with honored traditions, with
misted many-dimensional memories—
and with the most marvelous meicho-
lim that loving hands can prepare . •
"Dear Miriam, I enjoy your column
and the unusual recipes you print,"
writes Mrs. Joshua Shapiro of Balti-
more, Md. "Passover is coming and I
thought it was time to send in one of
my family's favorites. It is a deliciously
flavory fruit-nut cake made with
„ Planters Peanut Oil. I always keep a
good supply handy on Passover when
so many of the usual nibbles are not
available." Thank you very much, Mrs.
Shapiro, for sharing your recipe with
us. And here it is .. .
