The Moscow newspaper Trud rejected charges of Soviet anti-
Semitism as "quite absurd."
Rep. Victor Anfuso (D—N.Y.) introduced a bill providing death
for bombers of synagogues, churches and other public buildings. ''..
West Germany was investigating charges of Nazism against
Adenauer aide Dr. Hans Globke.
Moroccan Jews were barred from adopting first names not men-
tioned in the Old Testament. Police arrested Jews wearing blue-and-
white yarmulkes and a man with a white shirt and blue tie. •
The Anti-Defamation League said that despite ."marked improve-
ment," most U.S. textbooks "fail to present a varied, true-to-life
picture of Jews in America"; three-quarters of them "minimize"
Nazism and one-third "omit the topic entirely." The text-publishers'
chief agreed. The ADL also said there was a "marked decline" in
religious discrimination by medical schools.
British and French Rothschilds gave Israel its first golf course,
near Caesar's. On his first swing, Education Minister Eban . sliced
into the rough.
Forty-three Moroccan Jews drowned when their Israel-bound ship
sank off Gibraltar.

Rabbi Bernard flashes of St: Paul became the first rabbinic chap-

cause of the various pressures in

Why are the priestly blessings

only recited in the inendng and
net in the affirms?
The priestly blessings require a
certain sense of purity and sta-
bility on the part of the priests
wbo offer the blessings. This is
possible in the morning before
one goes about his daily aetivity
and before one has indulged in
food and drink. Alter one has be-
gun his daily activities and in-
dulged in food and drink' be may
not be in perfect shape to pro-
nounce the blessings because be
might have over-indulged. For
this reason, on the fast day when
one refrains from food and drink
and from most of his activities,
the blessing is pronounced in the
afternoon. In the house of mourn-
ing, since the spirit of joy is ab-
sent, the priestly blessings are
eliminated altogether. We thus see
that the -blessings require both a
loving sense of joy and a spiritual
sense of purity, in order to be
thoroughly effective and proper.
