`Israel's Social Fabric Is Rent
by Thousands of Broken Homes'

An uncalculated toll of the
Yom Kippur War—thousands
of broken homes — will take
a generation or more to re-
pair, an Israeli foreign serv-
ice official said Monday
night at a memorial service
for the fallen heroes of the
Israel Defense Forces.
Israeli Consul S h 1 o m o
Levin flew from New York
for the service, held at
Young Israel Center of Oak-
Woods and arranged by the
Council of Orthodox Rabbis
in cooperation with the Jew-
ish Community Council.
The loss of 2,400 boys and
—0 missing in action has
caused havoc . . to the
social life of Israel," said
Levin. "There are 2,400 be-
reaved fathers and mothers,
1,500 young widows and 4- to
5,000 orphans.
"Widows must start life

again; Israel must teach
them a trade. They must
have social contact.
"Israel will help them to
integrate, but what will hap-
pen to their families? A new
generation will grow up with-
out parental supervision. It
will take us a generation or
more to build up this family
unit."
Levin added that the reli-
gious community in Israel
also was hit very hard. With
the wars of 1948, 1956 and
1967, the young yeshiva
scholars had to interrupt
their learning. "Yet we man-
aged to bring up a new gen-
eration of yeshiva bahurim.
Suddenly, a great many of
these boys — the reservoir
for increasing Torah learn-
ing — has been taken away
from us. We will have to
start again, to rebuild."
Despite the feeling of
despair, however, "We reli-
gious people have our con-
solation. Nothing happens in
the world for nothing. We
don't know what God is plan-
ning, but we know He won't
let His people down . . ."
Hubert Sidlow, in extend-
ing greetings from the Jew-
ish Community Council, of
which he is president, said
"Each of us here owes a
debt to those heroes . . . as
much as any citizen of Is-
rael. We are of the house of
Israel, and their loss is our
loss."
Representing the Council
of Orthodox Rabbis, the dean
of Beth Yehudah Schools,
Rabbi David Lieberman, said
the lesson to be derived
from the Yom Kippur War is
that "Twenty-five years of
unparalleled progress have
not 'normalized' the position -
of the Jew in an - alien
world."
He suggested that, in an-
swer to this painful lesson,
the Jews note the last two
letters in the word Yisra-El
(God) and place increasing
reliance on Torah.
Rabbi James I. Gordon,
who chaired the memorial
meeting, urged the gathering
of 200 to continue their sup-
port of the Israel Emergency
Fund and Israel Bonds, but
additionally to contribute
tefilin for the use of Israel's
fighting men. Young Israel
of Oak-Woods has collected
.100 pairs, which the consul
took back with him to New
York.
Rabbi Gordon also stressed
the importance of tourism as
an expression of solidarity
with Israel's beleaguered
pooulation.
Rabbi Leizer Levin, presi-
dent of the Council of Ortho-
dox Rabbis, led in the read-
ing of Psalms of comfort,
83, 121 and 130. Rabbi Ernest
Greenfield chanted the El
Moleh Rahamim and led in
prayer for the Israeli forces
still at the front.
