Candles in Synagogue
Dr. Gutmann Gives
and his Orchestra
Personalized to Suit Your Party
Based on Tradition
By RABBI SAMUEL J. FOX
(Copyright 1970, JTA, Inc.)
It is traditional to have candles
or lights in the synagogue.
Some trace this to passages in
the Bible which read "Therefore
glorify ye the Lord in the Regions
of Light" (Iziah 24:15). According
to this, the synagogue which is a
place where the Almighty is hon-
ored and worshipped, has lights
which serve as a means of glorify-
ing Him. Others trace it to the bib-
lical command to have "eternal
light" burning in the sanctuary of
old to indicate the eternal presence
of the Almighty God. Some asso-
ciate this with the seven branched
candlabram which the Bible corn-
: manded Moses to provide for the
Tabernacle of old. Generally speak-
ing, light was the first thing which
the Bible reported God to have
given the world. Thus, it signifies
His presence and His involvement
in the world of man. Worship was
always regarded as a direct con-
frontation between God and man.
Thus, the presence of lights signify
the presence of the Almighty whom
man contacts during his prayer—
especially in the House of Prayer,

Heads Jews' College
LONDON — A world-wide search
among leading rabbinic scholars,
extending over several years, has
ended in the appointment of Rabbi
Nachum L. Rabinovitch of Toronto
as principal of Jews' College Lon-
At present rabbi of a synagogue
in Toronto, he is also a lecturer
in mathematics at the University
of Toronto and co-editor of an
American rabbinic journal. Rabbi
Rabinovitch, 41, wrote his doctoral
thesis on the Jewish calendar.
With the appointment of Rabbi
Rabinovitch, who will take up his
position by the spring of 1971, it
is expected that far-reaching
changes will also be effected in
the general structure and policies
of Jews' College.
Commenting on the appointment,
Chief Rabbi Dr. Immanuel Jako-
"As a forward-looking and high-
ly articulate leader of the younger
generation of enlightened Ortho-
doxy, and enjoying a world-wide
reputation among rabbinic scho-
lars, Rabbi Rabinovitch is sure to
bring a fresh approach to one of
Anglo-Jewry's most venerable, and
indeed unique, institutions."
