bills of the nation's elderly people.
Taking note of the anniversary of

renewed health that light up thous-

in this land."
According to Sam F. Test, dis-
trict manager of the Detroit-North-
west Social Security Office, of 19,-
700,000 people, 65 and over.

also provides a textbook for his
readers in his "Sipurim La-Tal-
mid," published by Ktav (120 E.
B'way, NY2).
This book of Hebrew stories, il-
lustrated by Aryeh Haas, contains
Hebrew explanatory terms and a
supplementary vocabulary—a 25-
page English-Hebrew dictionary.
The stories in this volume are
unique. They deal with a variety
of topics—with the experiences of
children in Germany, the rescue
of Jews in Denmark, tales about
Jews in Poland and other lands,
holiday stories, an explanatory
essay on why Jews survive, and
other thrilling narratives.
For all students of Hebrew this
is an especially impressive work
that will enable acquisition of a
large vocabulary and the extension
of knowledge of the language.
Dr. Horowitz expertly handles
his subject matter and has pre-
pared the stories in a manner that
indicates his pedagogic skills.

Weekly Quiz

By

RABBI SAMUEL J. FOX

(Copyright 1968, JTA Inc.)

What is the significance of
the expression "Blessed be He;
and Blessed be His Name"
which is uttered upon hearing
the name of the Almighty issued
from the lips of someone who is
making a benediction?
This expression is • uttered by
the listener when he is not fulfill-
ing his own religious obligation
upon listening to the blessing.
The Rabbis deduce this practice
from the instructions of Moses in
the Bible who ordered the people
of Israel as follows: "When I pro-
claim the name of the Lord,
ascribe greatness to our G-d"
(Deuteronomy 32:3). In the Tem-
ple of old, it was an established
practice that when the name of
the Almighty was pronounced the
congregation would respond with
the expression "Blessed be the
name of His glorious Kingdom for
ever and ever" (Tractate Yoma,
Chapter '7). Rabbi Shneur Zal-
man of Liadi in his Code (124:8)
expresses the ruling that whenever
one hears a benediction being of-
fered (with the name of the Al-
mighty expressed in it) he is to
utter "Blessed be He and blessed
be His name." The philosophical
sources explain this expression by
stating that there is a difference
between the true essential essence
of the Creator and man's limited
knowledge of Him in terms of His
works and obvious effects on the
universe. The latter is referred
to as His name because, while
man, according to the Bible
(Genesis 2:19) was given the ob-
ligation of naming the various
creatures of the universe, he did
not necessarily comprehend their
true essence. There is a differ-
ence between being able to identify
an object by giving it a name and
actually knowing its complete na-
ture. So is it between man and
the Almighty. We are only able to
call Him by name but hardly
able to understand His very being.
Nevertheless, we are of the faith
that even the little we do know
about Him is a source of blessing.
Thus we state that both He in
His full meaning and essence and
He in name only is a source of
blessing for us. The prophets do
declare that in the days to come
(i.e. the Messianic Era) the Al-
mighty will reveal Himself fully
to man and thus says the prophet
Zechariah "In that day will the
Lord be One and His Name One
(Zechariah 14:9).
*
Why are there two names of
the Almighty mentioned in the
benedictions? (i.e. Hashem and
Elokim)
There are various names by
which one can refer to the Al-
mighty. Generally, each of the
names refers to a different attri-
bute of the Creator. The name
Hashem refers to the attribute of
mercy. This is an attribute which
brings Him close to man. The
name Elokim is the one that refers
to the attribute of justice. This
of course indicates the great dis-
tance between the judge and the
judged. Both are used in the bene-
dictions to indicate that we be-
lieve the Almighty has both attri-
butes and that He is at the same
time both near and far from us,
yet is He ever the source of our
blessing.
