four new years. There is one in
Nisan, and there is a new year
for trees around February, and
there is one in Tishri. But the real
grand one of course is that in
Tishri, usually falling in Septem-
ber.
The Western world largely holds
its new year in January. But Jews
like to gather around the syna-
gogue and talk and it is too- cold
and snowy fo; that in January.
The Chinese have their new year
towards summer, but right in the
midst of everything, who wants to
have a new year? So Jews selected
autumn. The weather then is nei-
ther too cold nor too hot. The
leaves are turning a beautiful col-
or, and the people rested from
vacation are ready to return to sin-
ning again, and since it is some
months before you have to pay the
income tax, you still have enough
left for tickets for the temple.
I suppose everyone knows the

story how Rabbi Itzhak Leib of
Berditchev auditioned shofar blow-
ers. Well, anyway, he asked all
the candidates for the job what
passed through their minds when
they blew the shofar.
One man said he thought of
Moses leading the Israelites out of

Egypt.

A second man said he thought

service in Jerusalem.
A third said, "when I blow the
shofar, I say 'Dear God, you know
I am a poor man. I have three
daughters and I would appreciate
it if you could manage to help me
get them married off.' "
The third man got the job.

Rabbi Leib realized that he was
an honest man and when you get

down to it, what is life but a lot
of simple things like that?

On Rosh Hashana we ask for-
giveness for our sins. Sin is a kind
of complex subject. The Kotzker
Rebbe thought that even sin had
its good side. He said that sin gave
God the opportunity of revealing
his noblest aspect—that of com-
passion.
What are our sins? Have we
held up any banks, broken into
any homes? Do we face indict-
Ment by the grand jury? Most of
us are not guilty of these things.
A sage of the Talmud said we
will be punished in the next world
for the legitimate pleasures we
have denied ourselves. It reflects
on God if we have not availed our-
selves of his creations.
Maybe we should have gone to
a picnic or taken a drink and we
didn't.
It may seem a bit odd that we
should be punished for not going
to a picnic, but then again, a pic-
nic has its religious side. It brings
people together—fosters brother-
hood.
Perhaps if we had joined a He-
brew class or a class in gardenitig
or ceramics, we should have got-
ten some pleasure. We didn't—
so we sinned.
What the rabbi was saying is
that sin consists not only in acts
of commission, but in acts of omis-
sion. They are the greatest part
of our sins. We do not lead full
lives.
Anyway, be sure to go to that
picnic.

New Oil Pipe Line From Eilat

A new 42-inch oil pipeline from Eilat to Ashkelon is now under
construction with the aid of funds derived from State of Israel
Bonds. The new pipeline, which-will bring oil from ships berthed at
Eilat to the Mediterranean for shipment to Europe, will be inte-
grated with the existing 16-inch pipeline, whose intake pipes at Eilat
are shown above. Eventually, the line, which is expected to handle
60,000,000 tons of oil per year, is destined to become a factor of
major importance in Israel's expanding economy.
